 Botox Safety & Frequently Asked Questions

Botox injections should not be used in women who are pregnant or breast feeding.

Botox for facial rejuvenation

Botox injections are used to ease and smooth out the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, forehead furrows, crow’s feet, lip (smoker) lines, down-turned mouths and dimple chins, by relaxing the facial muscles that cause them. It can also be used for preventing excessive perspiration in underarms and hands.

The procedure

The procedure can be carried out in about 15-30 minutes and a tiny amount of Botox is applied to face by an injection – an injection that most people barely even feel or at the most causes mild discomfort.

Botox is a convenient form of cosmetic treatment, with the whole procedure able to be performed in a matter of minutes.

How Botox works

Botox is derived from Botulinum toxin type A, the substance produced by the bacteria that causes the paralysing illness botulism. The practitioner will inject a tiny amount of the Botox into the site to be treated.

The Botox works by blocking nerve transmission to the muscles under the skin. The muscle relaxes and simultaneously the skin covering the muscle is smoothed so that facial lines formed by the action of underlying muscles will diminish (or even disappear with further treatments). If used for excessive sweating, Botox injections reduce over activity of the nervous system in the area.

Following the procedure, there may be some redness in the treated areas, though this is usually minimal.

Normally, patients can leave the clinic a few minutes after the procedure. You can return to work the same day and resume most activities within four hours. The treatment starts to work in about 3-5 days, with the greatest effect seen after about 1-2 weeks. Find out about other Botox methods.

The facial areas and wrinkles treated should appear smoother, less furrowed, and more ‘youthful’ in appearance. The effects are not permanent but should last for around 3-6 months.

The risks

There are risks involved with Botox treatment which is why anyone considering treatment should consult a fully trained and experienced Botox practitioner before treatment.

Complications particular to Botox injections include over-treating the area and causing more muscle paralysis than is desirable, such as drooling if too much has been injected into the mouth area.

Other risks can include slight bruising at the injection site, drooping of the eyelid or forehead, and headaches or flu-like symptoms. People who receive Botox injections can develop antibodies that can make the body resistant to the effects of the injections.

Risks increase with the trend towards administration of Botox in non-surgical settings where the procedure is less controlled and the patient cannot be sure of the product safety.

Pregnant women should not have Botox injections as it can be harmful to the foetus.
