Eliminate wrinkles with the most talked about aesthetic procedure

Working in Sandton there is no patient in my practice that does not want, need or at least know about Botox. Sometimes people confuse Botox with Dermal Fillers but in most cases people know exactly what result they are looking for from the Botox treatment.

Dermal Filler treatments are the treatments for plumping lips whereas Botox is a toxin used to temporarily paralyze muscles or animated parts of the face. These constantly moving muscles create folds in the skin that turn into wrinkles over time.

The theory is: Stop the muscle from forming a wrinkle and thereby eliminate it.

Simple really! Each Botox treatment lasts roughly 3 months and takes about 15 minutes to undergo the treatment. First time patients require a little longer for better examination and explanation as it is a priority of mine to make sure you are comfortable and feel safe undergoing a Botox treatment.

When you undergo a Botox treatment, I will mix the Botox powder with saline and use a very fine needle to inject the toxin into the muscle. Pain is minimal, but I can use topical anaesthetic creams to aid in pain relief. There will be no immediate result but within 2 to 5 days you will start to notice the toxin taking effect. The results are phenomenal!

With Botox we can:

  • Reduce wrinkles
  • Reshape eyebrows
  • Treat excessive sweating

There are some risks involved with Botox treatments, they are minimal but need explaining and I will always make time to ensure you know the risks and are satisfied with my explanations. I will also follow safe guidelines to ensure you are never at increased risk or leave looking like a plastic doll unable to form a natural expression.

Many patients combine their Botox treatments with Dermal Fillers to complete their anti-ageing regime.
