Botox Injections


How Does Botox Work
Botox injections consist of a small dose of botulinum toxin. They can be used to prevent formation of wrinkles by paralyzing facial muscles.


How Long Does Botox Last. The wrinkle preventing effect of Botox lasts for between three to six months. Repeated injections can weaken muscles with subsequent treatments lasting for longer periods.


Botox Side Effects

Bruising can occur around the injection site, and occasionally if a blood vessel is damaged, a patient may get "black eye" bruising. The use of an ice pack before and after botox injections will minimise any bruising. A temporary drooping of the eyelid may occur.
