What is Botox Treatment?
Botox is currently the number one aesthetic treatment in the world. Botox is an injectable technique that works as a muscle relaxant, in order to reduce the lines that are caused by dynamic wrinkles. Natural wrinkles form while you smile, frown, and raise your eyebrows. When given in proper amount, Botox is going to make the face looks younger, relaxed, and natural. Botox injection is used for women and men alike. The most popular areas of injection remain the same and its frown lines, crows feet, and forehead.

Few minutes after the injection, you might still see some bumps which are quite normal, the body will quickly absorb it in less than 5 minutes. If your skin is sensitive, you might have injection spots or bruises, but do not worry as you can cover it with makeup concealer. It will be gone by itself around 3 to 7 days after, and it will not affect the result of the Botox.
What to do or not to do after Botox injection?
After injection, we will ask that you:
- Do not lay down flat for at least 4 hours after receiving Botox injection.
- Do not do strenuous exercise, swimming, or sun tanning for the first 24 hours after the injection.
- Do not do facial or massage or laser treatment over the injected area for at least 2 weeks.
When can You see the result and how long it last?
Botox results will gradually start to appear from three until four days after the injection. Full benefits of Botox injection are visible not later than two weeks after treatment.

Any other things that you should know about Botox?
Botox has been used in aesthetic procedures since the early ’90s with a remarkable safety profile. Usually, you will need to repeat the botox treatment about 2-3 times per year. If you do not continue the treatment, will your face be worse or look older? The answer is No, but please do not forget that – with each day passing, we are actually getting older and of course the natural aging process will happen. It is also important to protect your skin and invest in collagen-stimulation activity to retain skin health and elasticity. Consult our Puriva Doctor for more information on this.
You also should know that Botox cannot be used on every part of the face and therefore its great choice to combine treatment with dermal filler.
