Botox

HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?

Botulinum Toxin blocks neurotransmission, reducing the contractions of the facial muscles. After the treatment, the facial muscles are relaxed resulting in the smoothing out of existing wrinkles. These effects last two to six months, and can also prevent new wrinkles from forming.

Dr. Mignon Laub uses an ultra-thin needle to inject Botox into the muscles that cause wrinkles. Treatments are quick and (almost) painless.

HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
Botox is ideal for treating forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, nose wrinkles, chin creases, lip lines, marionette lines, and vertical neck bands. The full effects are visible 7 – 14 days after the injections.

The first consultation takes between 30 to 45 minutes and subsequent treatments take just 15 minutes. Botox is also widely used for effectively treating a variety of different conditions other than wrinkles.

BOTOX USES:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet (eye lines)
  • Forehead lines
  • Bruxism
    Teeth grinding is common in many adults. Botulinum Toxin reduces the ability to grind and clench over-zealously without interfering with normal chewing ability. After five or six injections, you’ll start feeling the difference and the symptoms will start to dissipate. No more migraines, jaw aches, and neck pains. Another treatment is necessary after 6 months, which is then usually enough to break the habit. You may just save your teeth, your gums, and your sanity.
  • Nefertiti neck lift
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating):
    Botox can effectively reduce excessive sweating under the arms, on the palms of the hands, and through the soles of the feet. Results usually last around 6 months and the procedure is covered by most medical aid schemes.
  • Migraines:
    Botox is very effective in treating migraines and tension headaches.
