Botox

Botox is one of the most popular treatments for reducing and eliminating expression facial lines and it’s also widely used for wrinkle prevention. The areas commonly treated with Botox at our Dubai clinic are the crow’s feet, frown lines, bunny lines and forehead lines and neck. Botox is FDA approved and is a safe and natural looking treatment that has been medically used for many decades. As a result, it’s one of the most desired beauty enhancement procedures.

Other than for cosmetic purposes, Botox is also used across the globe to treat sweaty palms, feet and underarms, which is a condition known as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). This is a fast, highly effective nonsurgical procedure with minimal to no side effects, making it very safe for people affected by this often embarrassing condition.

Botox is a highly safe and secure procedure as it holds the (FDA) approval and is widely considered the best treatments for facial, neck and hand wrinkles. If you’re looking for the safest and most effective dermal fillers available in Dubai, book a Botox treatment today.

Botox is a purified protein that reduces activity of treated muscles causing wrinkles. Very low doses of Botox are administered with minimal and virtually pain free injections. Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles and/or by blocking certain nerves. Treatment time is very short, usually less than 15 minutes, and no recovery is needed. Typically, full results are seen 2 weeks after treatment. On average Botox treatments are performed 3-4 times a year and the effects of a single treatment at our Botox clinic in Dubai can last up to 5 months.

Facial wrinkles form when we use our muscles to make expressions. The wrinkles formed during these expressions are called dynamic wrinkles. For example, when we smile our eye wrinkles become prominent and when we frown the vertical lines between our brows become noticeable.

When we are young, our skin springs back to normal after facial expression, but as we get older dynamic wrinkles remain on the skin to form static wrinkles: they are the wrinkles and folds that are present at rest. This process occurs because natural substances such as collagen (the major structure protein the skin), elastin (the protein that causes tissue to stretch) and hyaluronic acid (which gives skin volume) decrease with age. This, together with environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress all contribute to the creation of wrinkles.

Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look fake?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment performed by a highly experienced cosmetic medicine practitioner at our Botox clinic in Dubai. You should not lose the ability to show a full range of facial expressions when you are expertly treated by someone who’s licensed, trained and a medical expert in facial anatomy.

It is important to talk to your aesthetic enhancement treatment provider about the results you want from your Botox treatment, as well as any precautions and risks from the procedure.

How Is a Botox Procedure Done?

Getting a Botox treatment takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anaesthesia. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort, making it one of the most popular dermal fillers available in Dubai. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect, and it is best to avoid alcohol starting at least one week before the procedure. You should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising.

How Long Does a Botox Injection Last?

The effects of Botox will last four to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.

Who Should Not Receive Botox?

People who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease should not use Botox. Since Botox doesn’t work for all wrinkles, you should consult with a doctor before you arrange a treatment, so don’t hesitate to get in contact with LUCIA Aesthetic & Dermatology Center if you have any questions about the suitability of Botox as an aesthetic enhancement procedure.

What Are the Side Effects of Botox?

Temporary bruising is the most common side effect of Botox. Possible side effects include headaches, pain, burning or itching and swelling in the localized area, which will end within 24 to 48 hours. A small percentage of patients may develop eyelid drooping. This usually ends within three weeks. Drooping usually happens when the Botox moves around the area of treatment, so don’t rub the treated area for 12 hours after injection or lie down for three to four hours.

Can Botox be combined with any other products and procedures?

Many people use a combination of cosmetic products and procedures with Botox. We will advise you as to whether or not it is safe to use the other products and procedures you have in mind, as well as whether or not you will receive better results with your Botox treatment if combined with other aesthetic enhancement products or procedures.

Botox is also for men!

BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been clinically evaluated in male patients. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic were men. In the clinical studies for moderate to severe crow’s feet, male patients comprised approximately 10% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic, further dispelling the myth that Botox is only for women.
