What is Botox?

Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Ease away frown lines and more with Botox at Medcare.

How does Botox work?

When muscles contract they crease the skin, which over time causes wrinkles to form. Botox works by blocking nerve impulses and temporarily paralysing muscles so that the wrinkles are smoothed.

Where can Botox be used?

Botox is particularly effective for smoothing out frown lines and crows feet, giving the face a fresher, younger and more relaxed appearance.

Is Botox safe?

Botox has been in use for many years and in the right hands is a safe, simple procedure.

How long does it take?

Treatment takes around 20 minutes and there is no healing time. No one will even notice you have had it done – all the will notice is how good you look as wrinkles smooth and fade away in two to three days following treatment.

Can Botox be used on all wrinkles?

No. There are many parts of the face where lines and wrinkles respond better to other treatments, such as fillers or Sculptra. The Medcare doctor can advise which treatment is best for your needs.

What else is Botox used for?

Botox can also be used to treat a number of other conditions, including excessive underarm sweating, migraine and overactive bladder.

Who can administer Botox?

Medcare adheres with the strict clinical guidelines in Spain, whereby injectables (such as Botox or dermal fillers) can only be administered by a Doctor, who must be fully registered, licensed and insured. Any practicioner offering these services who is not a registered (and licenced and insured) Doctor is operating outside of the law.
