What is Botox? Your questions answered

Aesthetics and advanced skincare No6 Clinic

Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily allows the muscles to remodel and relax when injected, causing them to appear smoother, fade or disappear. No.6 Clinic’s medical team prescribe and then administer their own advanced injection techniques to provide tailor made treatments for each patient, thereby giving the exact results they wish to achieve. All treatments are followed up by the same doctor or nurse prescriber 2-4 weeks post treatment.

Where can I have Botox? 

It is used to treat wrinkles and fine lines such as crows feet (around the eyes), frown lines (on the brow) and forehead lines. 

Does it hurt and will people know I’ve had it done?

 Fine microneedles are used which therefore makes the procedure generally pain-free. Some patients do prefer to have numbing cream which is topically applied pre-appointment. The injections only take a few minutes, and in most cases, the areas won’t be noticeable so you can carry on as normal that day. 
When will I see results and how long does it last?Up to 5 days after treatment you will start to see Botox working and you will see the full effect peaking after 2-3weeks. Depending on a few factors (age, area injected and amount of product used ) the results will last around 4-6 months. 

What are the risks?

As it is known, no medical or aesthetic treatment is without risks, but is safe in a clinical environment with medically trained experienced staff. During your initial consultation our Doctors will inform you of any risks and answer any personal questions or queries you may have.
