Botox FAQs

Your Botox® Questions, Answered

I'm worried that I won't have any expression and the result may not look natural.

When treatment is done sensitively, and in my view correctly, you will still have facial expression and the results will look natural, but you will have a much fresher look as lines and wrinkles are softened. We can also give the eyebrows a little lift which adds to the effect.

Is BOTOX® safe?

BOTOX® has been in clinical use for over 20 years, and is receiving approval for an increasing number of medical conditions. There have been no reports of any long-term problems. When use for problems such as stroke or cerebral palsy the doses used are very much higher than the dose we use in the face.

How long does it last?

Usually 3-4 months, although there is some individual variation. After several treatments at regular intervals it will often last longer – a good number of our clients only need treatment twice a year.

Can BOTOX® only be used for the upper face?

No, areas around the mouth and in the neck can also be treated.

What about treatment of sweating?

Excessive underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) is successfully treated with BOTOX®.
