What is the treatment:

Botulinum toxin, or ‘Botox’, is a neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes muscles when injected. In aesthetic treatments, ‘Botox’ is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contractions, providing a non-surgical solution for achieving a smoother and more youthful appearance. Botox is a key treatment for reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions.

How long is the treatment:

15 to 30 minutes.

Pre-care Instructions:

2 to 3 days before - Avoid alcohol 

24 hours before - Avoid exercise and coffee/caffeine 

Botulinum Toxin is contraindicated in pregnancy, breastfeeding and neurological conditions.

Injected by:

Dr Khanyi and Dr Ziyanda

How will the procedure be performed:

Botox injections involve the following steps:

Consultation: The practitioner discusses the patient's goals and determines the areas for treatment.

Cleansing: The treatment area is cleansed to reduce the risk of infection.

Ice or Numbing Cream (Optional): Ice or numbing cream may be applied to minimize discomfort.

Injection: Small units of neurotoxin are injected into the muscles being treated.  Small, painless, raised bumps may be visible afterwards and usually disappear within 15-30 minutes. THIS IS NOT AN ADVERSE REACTION. 

Post-Treatment Care: Apply an antibiotic ointment over treated areas to prevent infection through the inoculation sites.

Post-care Instructions:

For 4 hours after  - You may experience a mild headache. Avoid lying down or bending. Avoid touching the treated areas. Avoid makeup (If you need to apply make-up within 4 hours after your treatment, only use a GENTLE touch to avoid rubbing the treated area).

For 24 hours after - Avoid alcohol and other blood thinners. Avoid facials, rubbing or massaging your face. Avoid exercise, saunas and steam rooms. Exercising can result in the Botulinum toxin migrating into unwanted muscles. Gentle pressure during your skincare routine. 

Onset of the Effect:

3 to 7 days, full effect is seen in 2 weeks.

Duration of the Results:

3 to 6 months (may last longer in the treatment of medical conditions).  The duration of effect is dependent on the dose & product used, and is influenced by metabolism, excessive exercise, certain medications, sun exposure, smoking, and genetics. The effects of neurotoxin last longer when treatments are done regularly i.e., just as the muscle action starts to return. This is because the treated muscles get weaker and weaker over time due to the reduced muscle action. 

How often should you do the treatment:

We recommend it every 4 to 5 months.

Level of discomfort:

Minimal, most people tolerate the procedure easily without any type of numbing.
