AZZALURE- Botox (Botulinum toxin type A) injections relax the muscles in your face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, such as crow's feet and frown lines, etc.
It's not permanent – it usually lasts for around 3 or 4 months.
When you cannot have Botox
In certain circumstances, Botox injections are not recommended, including if:
you have a skin infection
you're unwell in any way
you have a neuromuscular condition like myasthenia gravis
you're taking certain medicines
you're pregnant or breastfeeding
What having Botox involves
Your face will be cleaned and botulinum toxin will be injected into muscles in your face using a very fine needle.
You'll need injections in different places, depending on the area being treated. You'll be asked to move the muscles in your face to help find the best place for the injections.
It usually takes about 10 minutes.
You will not see a change straight away. It takes about 2 or 3 days to start working, and 2 to 3 weeks to see the full effect.
Do not massage or rub your face for 3 days. Also, avoid vigorous exercise, sunbathing (including using sunbeds), and the sauna for 2 days. Your practitioner should be able to give you more advice about what you should and should not do.
The effects usually last for about 3 or 4 months. If you have Botox injections again, you should wait at least 3 months. It might stop working if you have it too often.
