What is BOTOX®?
The use of a Prescription Only
Medication Botulinum toxin (commonly known as Botox®), produces
muscle relaxation treatment for frown lines, forehead lines and
crow's feet. It safely restores a fresh and relaxed look and is a
non surgical cosmetic treatment. It has been used successfully and
safely for more than 30 years in many medical areas, such as
Neurology, Urology, Surgery and Ophthalmology with no long term
side effects reported.
- Fainting or nausea during the procedure (usually associated
with patients with fear of injections.)
- Pain, swelling or bruising of the injection site
- Headaches or blurred vision
- Localised muscle weakness.
There is no need to be concerned about
permanent side effects. In 1989, the effectiveness and safety
of botulinium toxin A treatment was approved by the American Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) based on the results of clinical
studies done in thousands of patients.
Since the mid 1980s, no cases of side
effects were reported in patients who received botulinium toxin A
