What are Botox Injections ?

  • Botox is injected using a disposable syringe with a very fine needle; minute amounts of BOTOX muscle relaxant are injected very precisely into several locations on the face, which are determined by carefully examining the movements of the muscle of your face.
  • The pain associated with the injections is minimal. We can minimise any potential discomfort if requested by applying a topical anaesthetic prior to treatment.
  • We endeavour to keep the Botox injection experience gentle and pain free. Our trained professional team will put you at ease and support you through the whole experience.
  • The injection procedure takes around fifteen minutes.
  • The results of botox injections are a youthful refreshing look with a normal facial expression.

Botox injections pre treatment instructions

  • Avoid aspirin and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g Ibuprofen) for 10 days prior to treatment as these may increase chances of bleeding or bruising.
  • Avoid alcohol for one week prior to treatment for the same reasons listed above.

Botox injections aftercare instruction

  • Repeatedly tense the treated muscle for 3-4 hours after treatment, as Botox injections work better in active muscle
  • Refrain from touching the treated area for 3-4 hours
  • Remain upright for 3-4 hours
  • No exercise on day of treatment
  • No sun beds for 7 days
  • No facial/chemical skin peels or laser resurfacing treatment for 7 days
  • The Botox injections may cause a feeling of heaviness or mild temporary discomfort. You may take paracetamol.
  • Immediately after the Botox injections there may be mild swelling, which usually subsides within 24 to 48 hours
  • Slight bruising can occur, which will resolve speedily.
  • Rarely a transient numbness may occur in the area of the injection
  • The treatment will take between 5 to 14 days to work.
  • Do not repeat Botox injections more frequently than every 12 weeks as this may prevent them from being effective in the future.
