Botox is a cosmetic injection that works on the muscles to reduce aging signs and treat different disorders. At Novomed in Abu Dhabi and Al-Ain, our specialists will provide you with safe and suitable treatment to help you achieve the look your desire.
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic procedure that can help you look younger by relaxing the muscles in your face or body. When Botox is injected into the treated areas, the muscles relax, reducing aging signs and smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.
Botox can be injected in a variety of areas of the face and body, including the forehead, between the eyes and corners, smoker’s lines, underarms, and others.
This treatment doesn’t require any downtime, but the results will appear gradually and last around 4 months.
What are the beauty benefits of Botox?
Botox injections can provide a lot of benefits, such as:
- Reducing aging signs
- Reducing wrinkles and fine lines
- Achieving a more youthful look
- Treating frown lines
What are the medical advantages?
Although Botox is used for cosmetic purposes, it can also be used for medical purposes, such as:
- Hyperhidrosis, particularly underarms, feet, or others
- Migraine while receiving a back-of-the-head injection
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Overactive bladder
- Tired eyes
How to prepare for the session?
Before the session, our specialists will schedule a consultation with you to go over your medical history, see if you have any allergies, and check if you are taking any medications that could cause complications. They will also inquire as to whether you have previously received any type of botox injection.
Following the consultation, they will provide some pre-session instructions, such as:
- Avoid taking blood thinners.
- Avoid strenuous activity
- Do not wear make-up on the scheduled session day
What to expect during the session?
During the session, our specialists will first clean your face before applying a numbing cream to the treated area. They will then begin injecting the botox under the skin with a thin needle, making sure to distribute the amount evenly throughout the treated area.
Once they are done, they will clean your face again, apply a cooling cream and give you some instructions to take care of the treated area after the session.
What to do after the session?
The instructions given by our specialists may include:
- Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for at least 24 hours after the session
- Apply ice and cold packs to reduce swelling and redness
- Avoid makeup for 1 or 2 days after the session
Usually, you can go back to your daily activities immediately after the session, as this treatment doesn’t require any downtime.
What are the risks of Botox injections?
Although this procedure is considered safe, some side effects may occur; however, these usually subside after a few days or can be treated immediately by the doctor.
- Bruising and swelling
Botox injections are also not advised if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
When can I see the results?
Usually, the results appear gradually after 2 to 3 days from the session and may last from 3 to 4 months. That’s why follow-up sessions are required to maintain the results.
