Frown lines, crows feet, forehead wrinkles, eyebrow lift, gummy smile, chin lines.
Wrinkles appear in places on the face where facial expressions are the strongest. Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles. Because the muscles are relaxed, forehead wrinkles, crows feet, frown and laugh wrinkles fade on the face. In some cases, they completely disappear. Lines on the nose and chin can also be treated.
After an extensive intake assessment, we will determine, together with you, what the desired result is. The doctor injects the Botox into the skin with small pricks. The treatment is almost painless. Because fine needles are used, you don’t feel more than a pin prick.
After the treatment
After the treatment, there can be redness or light swelling. This will subside after approximately 0,5 – 1 hour. A slight bruising can also appear which will disappear after a few days. It is important that you don’t lie down for 2 hours after the treatment. It is also not advised to do intensive sport for the first 2 hours after treatment. Do not massage the area but we recommend occasionally tightening the muscle during the first 2 hours. The are no limitations from the day after your treatment.
When can I see the effect and how long does it stay visible for?
The effect from Botox is already visible after a few days. The effect is optimal after approximately 2 weeks. The Botox is no longer effective after 4- 6 months. It is often the case that with more treatments, the effect is visible for longer (until 9 months). To retain the desired result, it is necessary to repeat the treatment. Deep/strong wrinkles can initially be treated again after 3 -4 months.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is the most well known, most used and most talked about injectable. Botox is an extremely safe medicine that has been used in the medical world for more than 30 years. The botulinum toxin (active ingredient in Botox), only works on the treated muscles and has no effect on the rest of the body. In our clinic we use Botox from the leading – very safe – A-brand Allergen (Botox, Vistabel).
