Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Botox:

What is Botox, and how does it work?

Botox is a cosmetic treatment derived from Botulinum Toxin. It works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to specific facial muscles, reducing muscle contractions and softening the appearance of wrinkles.

What areas can be treated with Botox?

Botox is commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow's feet. It can also be applied to address bunny lines, vertical lip lines, and other facial wrinkles.

How long does a Botox treatment session take?

Botox treatments are quick, typically taking 15 to 30 minutes. This allows for a convenient and efficient experience for our clients.

Does Botox hurt?

Discomfort during a Botox procedure is minimal. Anaesthetic creams may be used to enhance comfort, and most clients describe the sensation as a mild, temporary pinch.

When will I see results after Botox treatment?

How long do the effects of Botox last?

The effects of Botox typically last three to six months. Regular treatments can help maintain a consistent youthful appearance.
