All patients receive a thorough face-to-face consultation, as individuals require diﬀering amounts of Botox™ in the diﬀerent facial muscles to achieve the look that they want.
All patients are followed up by a two-week post-treatment review to ensure that results are expected and any necessary tweaks will be discussed and administered if needed and agreed on.
Botox should only be prescribed by a qualiﬁed Independent Nurse Prescriber or a Doctor.
How long does the treatment take?
Giving the actual Botox™ injections is relatively quick, and skilled practitioners will take only 5 minutes or so. However, before you have the treatment there will be a discussion around what you are hoping to achieve, a (relevant) medical history, and a proper examination of the facial muscles and tissues so the correct doses can be given. You will have ‘before’ photographs taken.
Following treatment you will be booked in 2 weeks post treatment for a review. At this point ‘after’ photographs will be taken and any additional Botox™ needed will be administered, if it is needed. Often the treatments are exact and most good practitioners know exactly how much to inject. Sometimes however a little more may be needed at follow up.
How long until the treatment takes effect?
Botox™ can take between 1-14 days to take eﬀect, which is why we don’t review your treatment until 2 weeks post treatment. You may start to notice effects in some areas as soon as day 3, especially in the ‘crows feet’ area at the side of the eyes.
How long does the treatment last?
Botox™ typically lasts between 3-4 months, and sometimes more. Occasionally people with strong muscles in the forehead may need a sooner treatment, but over time less and less.
