What is Botox?
Botox is the most popular aesthetic treatment in the world that works to prevent and smooth facial lines and wrinkles.
Botox injections can also lift your eyebrows to help you look well-rested, refreshed, and years younger. You can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin with Botox treatments over time. Some of the most common areas treated with Botox include crow’s feet, frown lines in between the eyes, forehead wrinkles, eyebrows, and jawline.
Botox is an advanced medical treatment that should only be performed by an Expert Nurse Injector or a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon in a fully accredited medical clinic. There are many veins, arteries, and nerves in the face making it extremely important to be treated by a licensed medical professional with a physician onsite.

Things You Need To Know Before Your Botox Treatment
Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding cannot get Botox treatments.
To minimize bruising, please avoid alcohol for at least 48 hours before your injections. To improve the longevity of your treatment, we recommend that you refrain from gym workouts for 48 hours and avoid excessive heat (saunas, hot yoga) for 1 week after your treatment.
After your injections, you may feel slight discomfort and be tempted to rub or massage the injection sites; this is to be avoided. Your skin needs to settle and heal without irritation. The typical time to recover after Botox is approximately 2 to 4 hours. Although it may be tempting to take a nap during that time, it’s best to avoid lying down or putting pressure on your face.
For optimal results, we recommend that you follow these guidelines so you can reduce the risk of bruising.
