Botox®

Botox® Auckland

Botulinum Toxin is an injectable treatment. Injecting a muscle with Botulinum Toxin blocks the message from the nerve to the muscle and thus prevents the muscle from contracting. This results in the skin overlying these muscles to become smooth and relaxed, improving the fine lines and wrinkles over time to eventually disappear.

 

 

Botulinum Toxin is a quick and easy, simple treatment that can be done over your lunch break. However, it is important to see a reputable injector for safe and predictable results. In your first consultation, we will record your medical history. This is done to avoid possible contra-indications to having Botulinum Toxin injections. You will then have a Facial assessment to ascertain what needs treating and what strength of treatment is required.

Most clients start to notice the effects of their Botulinum Toxin injections after approximately 1-2 weeks. A follow up appointment will be made 2 weeks after your initial appointment. There is no charge for this, but it is essential for us to be able to assess your results and check that you are happy with them. The effects of Botulinum Toxin injections last between 3-4 months, however this varies for different individuals. We recommend having repeat treatments at this interval to achieve the best results. 

 

The most common areas that people like to treat are the forehead horizontal lines, the frown and the crow’s feet around the eyes. Botulinum Toxin can also be used to treat medical conditions such as chronic headaches/migraines, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), facial spasms
