BOTOX®

BOTOX @ R85 per unit

 
   
BOTOX® contains Botulinum toxin type A, which is a chemical (neurotoxin) produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It is used for the treatment of wrinkles and excessive sweating. It causes localised skeletal muscle paralysis by blocking the effect of motor nerves on skeletal muscles.
     
How safe is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® has been used safely and successfully just over 16 years for wrinkle therapy. No long term side effects have been attributed to the use of Botox. Short term side effects are minimal with temporary bruising localized at the area of injection being the most common. Eyelid drooping and blurred vision are extremely uncommon side effects that resolves in days to weeks.
     
Will BOTOX® injections give me a” frozen” look?
No, not if the correct dosages are used and the correct muscles are injected
     
Which areas of the face can be treated with BOTOX®?
Frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet being the lines next to and below the eyes, lines around the mouth, lines that appear on the neck with aging and other areas.
     
How long will the effect last?
Botox will last between 3 and 6 months, depending on the dose used and skin quality.
