Botox at Cosmetic Ink & Aesthetics
Botox is Allergan’s trade name for the protein and neurotoxin Botulinum Toxin. The protein is used cosmetically as a muscle relaxing injection to treat wrinkles. As we age, skin loses its elasticity, and dynamic wrinkles begin to form. Botox is the most effective skin treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. It also prevents new lines from forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements. Lines and wrinkles will be smoothed out, leaving you with a youthful, glowing appearance.
What does Botox treatment involve?
Very small amounts of Botulinum Toxin are injected into the target areas using a tiny needle. This blocks the impulse from the nerve to the facial muscles, reducing the contractions that cause wrinkles. Following the treatment the skin over the muscles looks smooth and even.
How long will the results from Botox Last?
The effects from Botox can last from three up to six months, at which point you can book a top-up treatment. Clinical studies indicate that this treatment has a cumulative effect, so you should need fewer injections as time progresses.
Does the Botox Injection Hurt?
The needle used is very fine and only a tiny amount of substance is used so pain is minimal. No sedation or local anesthesia is required.
Are there any side effects from Botox?
Only tiny amounts of Botulinum Toxin are used, so this treatment is not harmful. The most common side effects are temporary and localised bruising, slight redness of the skin and occasionally slight swelling at the injection site.
You’ll start noticing improvements in two to three days. The overall effects will be visible in about 2 weeks.
