Frequently Asked Questions About Botox

How is it administered?

The treatment is created from a purified protein of the botulinum toxin. The protein is thin injected into the face near the forehead and around the eyes. The protein interrupts the signals between the muscles and nerves, in the process smoothing lines in the forehead and wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet.

How long do the results last?

That will depend on a number of different factors, but on average, the results last between four and six months.

Are dermal fillers different?

Dermal fillers are also administered via injection, but they don’t smooth wrinkles, they fill spaces and add volume, reducing lines in areas around the nose and mouth. They can also be used to add volume to sagging cheeks. The dermal filler products we offer can also last for up to two years.
