Botox®

(anti-wrinkle injections)

Botox®

Medskin Clinic offers Botox®, Azzalure® and Xeomin® (anti-wrinkle) injections to help reduce the signs of ageing. As we age, our skin creases by the repeated use of facial muscles leading to unsightly lines such as ‘frown lines’ or ‘crows feet’. Over time these lines become permanent due to our natural ageing process as our bodies produce less collagen and elastin in our skin. We begin to look older as our bodies show the tell-tale signs of ageing.

What are Botox® injections?

Botox® injections contain a protein derived from chemically produced Botulinum bacteria which, when injected just under the skin, causes the surrounding muscles to gently relax. This reduction in muscle activity around the areas where the skin shows lines and furrows prevents the skin from creasing and gives it time to naturally recover its youthful appearance. The lines soften and fade away leaving younger, firmer looking skin.

What does a Botox® injection treatment involve?

Several tiny injections with a very fine needle are made around the areas to be treated. The injections are very shallow and are not painful – the most many clients feel is a slight stinging sensation. If you are concerned about the injections hurting we can numb the area to be treated with either an ice-pack or anaesthetic cream.

The treatment takes 5 to 10 minutes and the results are visible after 3 to 5 days. Following treatment you should avoid touching the treated area and strenuous exercise. You should also avoid drinking alcohol for 12 hours directly after treatment – you’ll just have to wait a bit before you go out and have a celebration drink! Follow up treatments are usually required to ‘top-up’ the initial treatment every 3 to 4 months for the first year after which the period between top-ups is usually longer.

Are Botox® injections safe?

The main ingredient of Botox injections has been used since the late 1970s, when it was originally used to treat patients suffering from eye squints. Since then it have been more widely used to treat a variety of conditions from writer’s cramp to Parkinson’s disease. Cosmetic use of anti-wrinkle injections has been around for the last 20 years with hundreds of thousands of successful treatments being given every year. One full dose of an anti-wrinkle injection is now considered to be as safe as taking a quarter of an aspirin.
