What is Botox?
Botox is the world’s number 1 anti-wrinkle injection. The first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
Lazeo offer alternative products, Azzalure and Bocouture, which are also local muscle relaxants adapted from the botulinum toxin type-A. They are less viscous and spread further once injected, which can be beneficial as fewer injections may be needed.
Indications for Botox
Moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines, other lines that are problematic.
Botox is often used to treat crow’s feet, the fine lines and wrinkles at the corner of the eyes, frown lines and shallow wrinkles on the forehead. The eyebrow may also be injected to help open up the eyes and this can have a remarkable rejuvenating effect on overall appearance.
This treatment is not suitable for use under the eyes or for very deep wrinkles.
Several injections of Botox are administered into the muscles to reduce wrinkles. Treatment typically takes around 15 minutes. No anaesthetic is necessary, and discomfort is brief and minimal.
The right product will be chosen based on the treatment area and desired results.
After the treatment
Downtime is minimal. The treatment usually takes effect after 3-5 days, however it may take 2 weeks for the maximum effect to be seen.
The effect lasts between 3 to 6 months (average 4 months). Clients who have had several injections often find the effect lasts longer. Side effects are uncommon and minimal.
