Botox on your wish list? We answer your questions on anti-wrinkle injections

Let’s be honest – when it comes to anti-aging measures, there’s only so far that a good night’s sleep can go. Sometimes, you need a little extra help to get you looking your fresh, glowy self beyond the limitations of lotions and potions.

The good news? You don’t have to resort to drastic measures to achieve that ‘lit-from-within’ look, and it won’t take you an age to get the results you want. FDA-approved Botox injections from Thérapie Clinic are an effective way of softening fine lines, wrinkles and revealing a fresher you at affordable prices.

What is Botox?
Botox is a trade name for a form Botulinum toxin, specifically botulinum toxin type A. This is a neurotoxin used in anti-wrinkle injections that blocks the signals between the nerves and the muscles, causing the muscles to relax. They reduce the appearance of lines to produce a look that is fresh, more youthful and, most importantly, natural.

How long does Botox last?
After the injections, you’ll notice your muscles slowly freeze up in a day or two with the full results appearing after a week. The line-smoothing effects of Botox typically last three to four months before gradually wearing off. If you love the results of your Botox, there’s only one thing that can truly extend its appearance: getting injections again and again.

How much do anti-wrinkle injections at Thérapie Clinic cost?
One treatment area starts at €145. If you fancy three areas of treatment, you get your third area for free at Thérapie Clinic.

Is Botox safe?
As with any drug or injectable treatment, Botox has its risks. However, most of the side effects are associated with the injection process itself, like bleeding, bruising, pain, swelling. The needle will leave tiny red spots that look like bug bites that usually disappear in the hours after your appointment.

To minimize risks, seek a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who specialises in cosmetic injectables. The medical professionals at Thérapie Clinic will be able to advise you on the treatment needed to cater to your specific concerns, helping to achieve natural, beautiful results. Our team of medical professionals is led by surgeon, Paul Reddy. The team comprises of highly qualified experts who are deft in safely delivering anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Their deep understanding of facial aesthetics in both women and men means they produce a look that is more youthful yet natural.

Avoid intense exercise like hot or aerial yoga for a day or two after the treatment. This will minimise the risk of the Botox migrating from the site of injection before it’s had a chance to settle.

What should I do before my appointment?
1. Make sure you’re adequately hydrated before getting your anti-wrinkle injections.
2. Pause whatever prescription topicals you’re using.
3. Avoid alcohol before your treatment.
