Botox

Wrinkle relaxation injections

Wrinkle relaxation injections are one of the most popular and effective ways to restore the natural youthful appearance of your skin. They work by relaxing the contractions of the facial muscles and therefore preventing the appearance of wrinkles and creases in the skin.

Botulinum Toxin, known as Botox, is a natural, specially processed protein from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum used with safety in medicine from 1987. The approval for using Botox in cosmetic applications did not come until 2002, though doctors had been offering it for cosmetic use since 1996.

FAQs

How exactly do Botox work?

This treatment works by relaxing the facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses. These muscles will no longer be able to contract and therefore the appearance of wrinkles is reduced and the face has a softer and smoother appearance.

It’s important to note that the treatment is not permanent so it’s necessary to have new treatments every few months to maintain the positive effects. Botox can also be performed as a preventative measure to prevent new wrinkles from forming.

How do I avoid the ‘frozen face’ appearance?

We take a ‘less is more’ approach at Elixir, which means the results you get from Botox are a more youthful, refreshed version of yourself.

Can men and women benefit from this treatment?

Absolutely. Botox are an extremely popular form of treatment for both sexes. As men have become more concerned with their appearance over the last 10-15 years, there has been a drastic increase in the use of the injections for men.

How much do Botox cost?

Elixir offers injections starting from just 190 euros per area, making them very affordable.

Is it safe?

Yes, Botox are very safe and has been used as a cosmetic treatment for over 15 years with no negative side effects associated.

Do the injections hurt?

Although there is a small pinching sensation when the solution is injected, the very fine needle that we use means the discomfort is minimal.

We also ensure that we tailor the experience to your needs and if necessary will administer pain killers and use dental block anaesthetic where required. Generally, ice is used as a topical anaesthetic.

Are there any negative side-effects?

Generally, the injections are free of any serious negative side effects but there can be some mild pain and tenderness around the injection points, though this should subside within 48 hours. On rare occasions, dropping around the eyebrows or eyelids can occur though this would also subside within a few weeks.
