All you need to know about botox


Botox treatment in Doha, Qatar

BOTOX® is FDA approved for improving the appearance of fine lines and other wrinkles. It is the method of choice to ease the tension of the typically over-contracted muscles, that cause the skin to wrinkle permanently, if left untreated. This can lead to an overall stressed and prematurely aged appearance. Botox is also suitable to lift the lower third of the face which can, in mild cases, prevent or at least delay a surgical facelift. During a typical Botox treatment, you will receive several small injections in order to temporarily weaken the treated muscles. As a result of this, the skin relaxes and facial wrinkles and lines become less noticeable for a considerable amount of time. These results will be visible after 4-10 days and can last about 6 months on average.

also use the most advanced, atraumatic needles to make sure you will be comfortable during the treatment.

recommend to avoid aspirin for pain medication (not if medically necessary) prior to treatment, to lessen the chances of bruising.
