Cosmetic Botox Injections
To combat frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet, a minute quantity of botulinum toxin is injected to relax the muscles that cause these conditions. The cosmetic effects of botulinum toxin last between three and six months.

Backed by over 15 years of clinical studies, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most widely researched and studied treatment of its kind, approved for use in 96 countries. The safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic has been described in more than 495 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
Botox is a quick, safe, relatively pain free procedure that guarantees results.
The main benefits are highlighted below;
Botox will last 3 – 4 months and will vary per individual. After this time, the muscle will start to regain movement and lines will begin to reappear. To maintain results, another treatment is required.
The more Botox that is administered the greater the interval between treatments and this is especially true in patients with facial asymmetry and overactive muscles.
The required dose depends on the individual patient and many patients require only a small dose of Botox as their muscles are very weak and inactive.
