But it has the word Toxin and Toxic in its name, surely that can’t be good?
Anything including medication in extremely high doses is bad, but the amount of Botox ® used in anti-wrinkle treatments is very small and is only used to treat the targeted muscle. All the Botox ® is doing is blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle which in turn relaxes the muscle.
Does it hurt? It looks painful!
Generally, no it doesn’t hurt but it really depends on the person and their pain threshold. Our practitioners at Omniya Clinic are incredibly gentle and use a very small needle minimising the pain.
So, can I only do Botox ® in London on my face for wrinkles?
No, of course not! Botox ® is unbelievably versatile. Botox can be used for anti wrinkle injections, on the neck and it’s known as a Nefertiti Lift, on the armpits for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), on the jaw (masseter) to slim the face and it can even help with migraines. So, Botox ® can do a fair bit, it’s great at making you look good and can make you feel better too!
Are there tell-tale signs that I’ve had Botox ®?
After you’ve had the procedure, you’ll most likely get some redness or tiny blebs (localized swelling).
After a few minutes they’re gone and once the effects of Botox anti wrinkle injections set in, you may just love it!
How long before an important event should I get Botox ®?
Ideally it takes a few days to see results.
However, it can take up to two weeks, so the best thing to do is book your appointment two weeks before that important event and we’ll do our best to make you look your best. We also need to make sure you’re completely satisfied with your results, and offer a complimentary review.
Do men get Botox?
Everyone ages, even men, and in this social media age men want to look their best too. At our London clinic at Omniya our Botox ® practitioners have helped many men to look incredibly youthful to improve their personal and professional lives.
