Boxtox is purified from Botulinum toxin and has been used medically for more than 20 years. It is mainly used for frown lines and crow's feet. It is injected into the small muscles around your eyebrows and at the outer edges of your eyes.
You may find the treatments sting as they are being injected, however any pain stops as soon as the needle is withdrawn. It is similar to a dental injection. Emla cream can be applied to the potential treatment areas an hour before hand.
You may have slight redness after and some small red spots from the injection site, these disappear over the first couple of hours. Slight swelling will settle over 24hours.
How Does It Work?
It paralyses the small muscles in which it is injected. It does not affect the surrounding facial muscles so you are left with normal facial animation which results in a natural look. It takes up to 5 days for the full affect to be noticed and the first treatment lasts about 4 months. It tends to have a longer affect after repeated treatment and helps prevent lines forming.
The amount that is injected is tailored to your requirements, so a natural and subtle look is achieved. The treatment time is approximately 15-30 minutes depending on your own individual requirements.
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Sweating can be drastically reduced with injections of Botox into the skin of the armpits. The effect last for about 4-6months.
