Botox is the common name given to botulinum toxin type A. Injected under the skin, it causes the facial muscles to relax, resulting in the smoothing out of crease lines and wrinkles. This causes your face to appear more youthful and can be applied to multiple target points in the face, such as the forehead, the area around the eyes, the bridge of the nose, and more.

By relaxing the muscles in the face, Botox reduces the facial movement that causes lines and wrinkles to form. In doing so, your skin has a chance to “heal”, with lines becoming less pronounced and your skin appearing more young-looking.
The procedure has many applications, from medical interventions to cosmetic treatments. The most popular uses of Botox are to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead frown lines, facial wrinkles, laughter lines, and eyebrow lines.
Here at J2 Medical, we offer several specialist Botox treatments, including:
Before we administer any Botox treatment, we start with a consultation between you and our medical specialist. The goal is to identify what you want from the treatment and how we can best help you achieve those results.
The treatment plan itself involves injections under the skin, which some patients find uncomfortable but are typically painless. Botox injections do not take effect immediately, and it can take up to a week before you notice any change in your appearance.
Cosmetic Botox injections are not a long-term solution. Each treatment normally lasts between 3 and 4 months, after which you will need to repeat the procedure. That being said, as you undergo more treatments, your facial muscles will react better to the injections, resulting in fewer wrinkles occurring naturally over time.
While any medical treatment holds some element of risk, Botox has been in use as a cosmetic procedure for almost half a century and is perfectly safe for most patients. As part of your initial consultation, we will walk you through any potential risks and contradictions to determine whether Botox injections are the right procedure for you.
