What does it do?
A neurotransmitter called acetylcholine is a chemical messenger that is released right in the junction where the muscle cells meet the nerve ending by the nerves so that muscles can contract. When Botulinum is injected, it prevents the production of acetylcholine, which in turn prevents the muscles from contracting. Ultimately preventing wrinkles to form.
Setiba Group offers 100% pain less Botox treatment great for both men and women. Since the Botox is not only meant for relaxing and giving you a youthful glowing skin, other improvements and enhancement to your face and body that can be done are as follows:
- Lift the tip of your nose
- Tighten jowls
- It reduce excess sweating of your body.
- Soften severe lines between your brows and around your eyes.
- Rejuvenate the decolletage
The Botox Advantage
- Botox effectively and instantly treats the wrinkles that appear whenever you frown or make other facial expressions. Known as dynamic wrinkles they don’t respond to dermabrasion and chemical peels.
- Botox fits your active lifestyle. There’s no downtime associated with it. Dermabrasion and chemical peels on the other hand require up to 10 days of recovery time.
- Botox acts fast. It usually takes only a few days to work as it begins to settle in the injection site. And its effects can last four to six months. You’ll need future treatments as your facial muscles begin to contract again and lines and wrinkles return. But Botox trains those muscles to relax. So over time any lines and wrinkles will become less evident.
- Botox has been proven safe for most everyone. Anyone between the ages of 18 and 70 may consider it. Younger people tend to see the best results. Older people should consult a plastic surgeon or dermatologist to learn whether their skin tone is elastic enough to respond to treatment.
The Botox Experience
Before booking an appointment, you will have your consultation to determine your particular needs and you will be advised not to take any aspirin, ibuprofen, and vitamin E ten (10) days prior to your Botox Injection schedule to avoid chances of getting bruises.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
Where is it usually injected?
Botox is usually injected in the forehead, in the corner of both eyes, between the eyebrows, and the sides of the chin where wrinkles usually form. In some instances, Botox can also be used for a vast variety of other conditions such as psoriasis, excessive sweating and also migraines.
What to expect during the procedure?
On the day of the procedure itself, it won’t be much different as it will only be like a trip to the doctor. It will be a series of shots or sessions, but it will be just like having a normal shot.
How long is the recovery time?
Right after your procedure, you can be up and doing your usual routine. You may experience redness, but you’ll feel okay. Another thing is that the doctors recommend that the patients don’t lie down for at least 4 hours after the procedure, this will ensure that the substance will not migrate to other unintended parts of your face.
