Botox treatments using Botulinum Toxin type A is one of the fastest growing wrinkle relaxing cosmetic procedures today.

Gone are the days when we had to accept wrinkles as a fact of life. For the last 10 years more and more people have been having this simple non-surgical treatment to both prevent and smooth away wrinkles to gain a refreshed and youthful look.

We all get more lines as we get older. This is because as we age our skin loses moisture, elasticity and strength.  Therefore after years of constant facial expressions, we start to develop wrinkles which appear with facial movement.  These dynamic wrinkles become more noticeable and deeper which often results in a constant tired or ‘angry’ look.

Botox offers a natural-looking solution.


Botox is a medication that contains the active ingredient Botulinum toxin type A. The medical industry have been using this biologically produced protein of Clostridium Botulinum bacteria since the 1980’s as medication for various conditions.

The use of Botulinum toxin for advanced and effective medical treatments against unwanted wrinkles is relatively a recent trend. It has been FDA approved.



Botulinum Toxin is currently among the safest treatment methods available. 99% of treatments are entirely free of adverse effects, when administered correctly.

If side effects ever occur, they are generally mild and temporary. No long-term effects of Botulinum toxin have been reported after twenty years of clinical experience. However, women who are pregnant or nursing should take caution and avoid Botox treatments during this period.



Botulinum Toxin blocks the nerve transmission to reduce the contractions of the facial muscles. After the treatment the facial muscles are relaxed resulting in the smoothing out of existing wrinkles. These effects last between three to six months and prevent new wrinkles from forming.

Botox is ideal for treating wrinkles such as forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, nose wrinkles, chin creases, lip lines, marionette lines and vertical neck bands.  The full effects of Botox for wrinkles can be visible within 7 – 14 days after the injections.

Botox is also widely used for effectively treating a variety of different conditions other than wrinkles.

The first consultation takes between 30 to 45 minutes and subsequent treatments take just 15 minutes.

Another treatment is necessary after 6 months which is then usually enough to break the habit. You may just save your teeth, your gums, and your sanity.
