BOTOX® is a non-surgical treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX® are administered by ways of a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those frown lines.
BOTOX® works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
BOTOX® can also be used to treat excessive perspiration (Hyperhidrosis). It is injected into the skin to treat the symptoms of sever underarm perspiration when medicines and anti-perspirants used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough.
Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe lines. Lines continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for up to 4 months
During your consultation, Dr du Toit will discuss what can be achieved through the use of BOTOX®, what the possible risks are and if it will be appropriate for you specific needs.
