What is Botox®?

 

Botox® (botulinum toxin a) is a refined neurotoxic protein produced by the bacteria clostridium botulinum. It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, that stimulates muscle contraction, and causes a temporary paralysis. It has been used medically for almost 40 years, treating a range of neurological and urological diseases.Botox® has been used in cosmetic medicine over the last 20 years and is one of the most studied medicines in the world.

How long does Botox last?

 

Botox injections last on average 2-4 months, depending on the dose injected. Patients with a faster metabolism may find they metabolise the product quicker than others.

I use the brand Xeomin® as I feel this product provides the best results.

Are there any contraindications?

 

Yes, the following patients cannot have Botox®:

  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women

  • Patients with a known allergy to Botulinum Toxin A

  • Patients with Myasthenia Gravis or other defective neuromuscular transmission disorders.

I don’t want to look frozen, how can I achieve a natural result?

Everyone’s face is unique and requires different doses. I tailor the dose according to your goals and my professional judgement. The goal is to achieve a natural result and I’d rather under treat you and top up at your follow up appointment, than over treat you. Rest assured, you will not leave my clinic looking like the patients that appear on Botched - I promise.
