1Q. What is Botox?
A. Botox, brand name for botulinum toxin type A, is a naturally occurring neurotoxin produced by the bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. Botox Dubai is known more for its cosmetic benefits -- removing wrinkles and fine lines, plumping up sagging cheeks, reshaping lips etc. -- but it has numerous non-cosmetic applications as well. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Botox to treat several neurological disorders including excessive sweating, chronic migraines, overactive bladder, severe muscle spasms and spastic eyelid disorders.
2Q. How does Botox work?
A. When used for eliminating facial wrinkles, Botox is injected directly into the skin on the wrinkly areas on the face where it works by temporarily relaxing the problem causing muscles, thereby preventing them from contracting. This makes your skin to appear smooth and tight, free of wrinkles. On the other hand, when used for treating excessive sweating, Botox is administered at 10 to 15 targeted points, deep enough to reach the sweat glands underneath the dermis. The toxin works by temporarily blocking the transmission of nerve impulses that activate sweat glands, thus offering instant relief.
3Q. How much Botox do I need?
A. Like any other part of the world, Botox in Dubai is also administered in FDA-approved doses. However, the quantity of toxin you need solely depends on the size of the area and the number of areas that need treating, as well as the severity of the problem. If you have got very fine, barely noticeable wrinkles on your face you will need very small amount of Botox as compared to a person seeking Botox treatment for deep, etched wrinkles. Also, getting multiple areas treated will obviously need more Botox as compared to getting just crow’s feet or laugh lines or frown lines treated.
4Q. Is there any side effect?
A. When administered by an experienced, board certified dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon, Botox is an extremely effective and safe injectable drug. Common side effects reported by the patients include slight swelling, bruising and redness at the injection site. However, getting the toxin from an inexperienced clinician or nurse practitioner could result in some really serious side effects. Thus experience of the doctor is the key to the safety and efficacy of Botox, as well as the longevity of results. If you are planning to get Botox Dubai, contact Dubai Cosmetic Surgery and be assured that you are in safe hands.
5Q. How long will it take before the results appear?
A. Botox Dubai is preferred by the patients and the clinicians primarily for its instant results. And when we say instant results it really means instant. You will be able to see initial effects of procedure immediately after the procedure, which will peak within 7 to 10 days. The results of Botox treatment generally last for 4 to 6 months and after that you will need a reinjection to maintain the fresh and smooth, wrinkle free appearance.
6Q. Botox Dubai cost?
A. Like any other procedure in the world, Cost of Botox in Dubai also varies significantly from one provider to another, based on his or her experience and reputation in the market. A highly skilled dermatologist with several years of experience will obviously charge you more than someone who is little known or has just started practice. At Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, we use two methods to calculate cost of Botox treatment – per vial method and per area method.
