What is Botox?

BOTOX is the brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin is licensed for cosmetic treatments and has been used medically for over 30 years. It is a toxin that paralyses muscles temporarily, thereby stopping the formation of wrinkles. It is effective in reducing wrinkles on the forehead, the frown lines and the crow’s feet around the eyes. It can also be used to raise the brows or create an arched eyebrow. Botulinum toxin can also be effective in treating excessive sweating / hyperhidrosis in the armpits, palms and soles of the feet.

How does it work?

Small amounts of the toxin is injected just beneath the skin, into the muscles to be treated. The needles that are used are very small and are not particularly painful so no anaesthetic is required. The injected areas are usually a little red for the first few hours before settling down. It is important not to massage the injected areas and you should also avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for the first 24 hours.

How long does it last?

The effects from Botox takes 3-7 days to work and usually lasts between 4-6 months. This may be slightly less at your first injection and longer if you have had treatments in the past. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkle begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking.

Is it safe?

Botox is a relatively safe treatment, but it should always be undertaken by a qualified medical professional to ensure that you are getting the correct amount in the right area. As with any medical procedure there are inherent risks. But these are relatively rare and can include:

•  flu-like symptoms – including a headache – for the first 24 hours after treatment
•  bruising at the injection site
•  temporary weakness and droopiness of your facial features – for example, eyelids or eyebrows may droop temporarily if the injected medicine moves into these areas
• your body developing resistance to the treatment if it’s repeated too frequently
