Generally, a treatment with Botox takes 10 minutes. It may take longer some times than others. This depends on the number of areas to be treated and the degree of difficulty. During the Botox treatment, a small amount of Botox is injected with a thin needle into the muscles, which this stabilizes. Due to the use of the thin needle, there is no scarring. The effects of Botox are visible after about a week. The full results can be seen after about three weeks.

The effect of Botox treatment is fully visible for about seven months. From three months after treatment, the effect of Botox in your skin may already diminish. You can choose to have a follow-up treatment during this decrease period. This treatment is shorter and the result is better because we know your face. When you undergo Botox treatment to reduce migraines, teeth grinding or excessive sweating, the effects will last an average of ten to twelve months. In the table below, we give you an indication of how Botox works.

Botox is used to prevent wrinkles. With a Botox treatment, the muscles are relaxed which also reduces the appearance of folds in the skin above. These folds can actually cause the wrinkles so by not giving these folds a chance, you will not develop wrinkles.

Botox treatment is usually performed to reduce dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. In addition, wrinkles around the nose, upper lip and chin can also be reduced with Botox. In recent years, Botox has been increasingly used for medical purposes such as reducing symptoms caused by excessive sweating, teeth grinding and migraines.
