What is BTX?

Do not mistake Botox with fillers!

BTX, also known as Botulinum Toxin (Botox) or Muscle Relaxant, offer a highly sought-after solution for reducing the visible signs of aging. Unlike fillers, which can sometimes result in an unnatural appearance, Btx provides a subtle and natural-looking rejuvenation. Administered through precise and virtually painless injections, this minimally invasive procedure targets the underlying muscles responsible for wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive facial expressions.

Anti-wrinkle injections has become the world’s leading facial treatment for lines and wrinkles. Millions of women and men undergo this procedure each year, benefiting from its ability to soften facial lines and restore a more youthful appearance.

Our specialized muscle relaxant injectables are tailored to disable specific muscles contributing to wrinkles and creases. These injections typically yield results lasting approximately 3 to 6 months, making them an effective solution for addressing various cosmetic concerns, including hyperhidrosis and teeth grinding.

It’s essential to understand that Botox is not a permanent solution. The effects gradually fade over time as the treated muscles regain their normal function. This temporary nature allows for adjustments and ensures a natural progression of results

Botox is much more than an anti-wrinkle solution


Botox is injected directly into the muscles that cause wrinkles, using a very small needle. Several injections are usually needed at specific sites, depending on the area being treated. When used to treat excessive sweating in the armpits, Botox is injected directly into the axillary skin. Localized discomfort and bruising can occur, but sedation or local anaesthesia is generally not required. Normal activities can be resumed immediately

Botox typically takes effect 24-72 hours after injection, reaching its maximum effect at around 1 to 2 weeks. Its effects generally last for approximately 3-4 months. When injected into the muscles that are responsible for expression wrinkles, it gives the face a more relaxed and smoother appearance. In some cases, longer-lasting effects (9-12 months) are observed after treating excessive sweating. When you notice a gradual fading of the treatment's effect, you may return to receive another treatment.

While Botox can be highly effective in reducing wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, it does not have an effect on reducing fine lines on the face caused by sun damage or lines resulting from sagging of facial skin. For these cases, we offer a range of wonderful treatments. Please contact us or browse our mesotherapy section for more information.In patients with deep lines, repeated treatments may be necessary to achieve the maximum effect. However, excessive, or frequent administration of Botox can lead to the patient developing resistance to the treatment due to antibody formation. Additionally, Botox treatment may exaggerate any facial asymmetry. Therefore, it is essential to always listen to your practitioner and avoid pressuring us into providing more treatments than necessary.

No severe complications have been reported in the literature following the cosmetic use of Botox. In very rare cases, excessive weakening of the target muscles and temporary paresis of adjacent muscles can occur, leading to facial weakness. This condition is self-limiting.


When injecting above the eyebrows, there is a slight risk (1 in 100 cases) of upper eyelid ptosis or mild drooping. This can be corrected using eyedrops and will also improve as the effects of Botox wear off.

Once you have completed your initial research and are interested in starting Botox injections, it is crucial to schedule an initial consultation with us. Botox is not a one-size-fits-all treatment, and the consultation will allow you to address any concerns or queries you may have regarding the procedure. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for us to recommend a suitable treatment plan based on factors such as your reasons for opting for Botox, your age, complete medical history, and desired outcomes.In addition to the health assessment, you will need to demonstrate your natural facial expressions to the professional so that they can identify the specific areas where the injections should be administered.

Your treatment will be tailored specifically to your requirements based on the information provided during your initial consultation. Botox, which comes in a powdered form, is mixed with saline and refrigerated before the injection. A qualified facility will ensure the perfect mixture, ensuring that the Botox remains in its intended location.


During the actual treatment, Botox is injected using a very fine needle just beneath the surface of your skin. This process typically does not cause bruising unless the needle accidentally hits a blood vessel. In such cases, mild bruising may occur around the injection site, but it usually fades naturally within a few days.


The toxin generally takes around 24-72 hours to take effect. The time it takes for the full effects to become visible varies for each individual. The number of injections required will depend on various factors, including the extent of the area being treated.

There is typically no significant recovery period or downtime required after receiving Botox injections. You can generally resume normal activities immediately, with the exception of engaging in strenuous exercise. As a precautionary measure, you may be advised to keep your head upright and avoid massaging the injected areas. Please ensure that you read the after-treatment section located just above this FAQ section for further information.

When considering cosmetic procedures like Botox, it is always advisable to seek the expertise of an experienced practitioner. By doing so, you can have peace of mind knowing that they possess the necessary knowledge and skills to ensure a safe and effective treatment. Experienced practitioners understand the precise mixture of Botox to saline, and they prioritize maintaining the appropriate standards without cutting corners.


Moreover, an experienced practitioner will determine the correct number of injections needed for your specific case and will administer them in the appropriate manner. This helps to minimize the likelihood of experiencing bruising or other potential side effects. Choosing a skilled and knowledgeable practitioner enhances the overall safety and success of your Botox treatment.

Patients can typically resume their normal daily activities immediately after receiving Botox treatment. Light exercise can be performed after 4 hours, but it is advisable to avoid strenuous activities for 24 hours.


After a 4-hour period, you may engage in light exercises such as walking, jogging, upright yoga (avoid positions that involve lying flat or being upside down), gardening


However, it is recommended to wait for 24 hours before attempting any strenuous exercise after Botox, which includes activities such as weight training, cross-training, long-distance running, yoga positions where the body is inverted


By following these recommendations, you can ensure the best results and minimize any potential risks associated with exercising too soon after Botox treatment.

It is advisable to limit alcohol consumption in the first 24 hours following Botox treatment, as well as the day prior to the treatment. Alcohol can thin the blood, similar to aspirin, and abstaining from alcohol can help reduce the risk of bruising. By avoiding alcohol during this period, you can help promote optimal healing and minimize the potential for bruising at the injection sites.

Once the treatment wears off, your muscles will function as they did before the injectables. This means that the wrinkles you smoothed or reduced will slowly begin to appear again. You will simply witness old wrinkles reappearing, and no new wrinkles should emerge.

The results of Botox injections typically become noticeable within 3-5 days to two weeks after treatment. A follow-up session is scheduled during this time to review the technical and aesthetic outcomes of the treatment.

Yes, patients who have received anti-wrinkle injections will not experience any adverse effects while flying. These injections are not affected by changes in altitude or cabin pressure, so there is no need to be concerned about the treatment while traveling by air.
