What is Botox?

Botox has become a popular non-surgical, injectable treatment that can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It is a heavily researched ingredient that is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments, with more than 7 million Botox treatments administered each year.

 

Botox is a protein made from Botulinum toxin, which the bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces. Botox is a toxin, but when doctors use it correctly and in small doses, it can have various benefits; both cosmetic and medical. As a cosmetic treatment, Botox injections can reduce the appearance of skin wrinkles; most commonly used to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. It can also be used as a treatment for various health issues, including eyelid spasms, excessive sweating, and migraines.

 

It acts by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles and so paralyzes (relaxes) the muscles.

Botox at hermanos

We have partnered with Dr Mias Van Der Westhuyzen who will be administering Botox injections every Wednesday in our treatment room at our Green Point branch. 

 

Dr Mias Van Der Westhyzen graduated from Stellenbosch University as a General Practitioner with the MBChB class of 2017. He underwent further training and received his Diploma in Botulinum Toxin Injection Techniques under world-renowned Dr Izolda Heydenrych and is a fellow at the Allergan Mentorship program of Aesthetic medicine.

 

Mias is passionate about aesthetic medicine, preventative medicine, mental wellbeing and strives to practice a sustainable style of aesthetic medicine whereby longevity and beauty go hand in hand.

How long does Botox last?

The results of Botox typically last between 3-5 months from the date of injection. Over time the body metabolises the Botox, leading to the slow return of muscle movement in the treatment area.

How much does it cost?

Botox is priced per unit needed. The amount of units needed differ for each person, and is dependent on what section of the face/body is treated as well as the individual anatomy of the patient.

 

Our price per unit is R75.

 

Below is a rough guideline to determine an estimate of cost for the specific area you would want treated.

 

Frown/Glabella: 12 – 22 units

Crows Feet: 12 – 16 units

Frown: 10 – 20 units

Brow Lift: 2 – 4 units

Gummy Smile: 2- 4 units

Bunny Lines: 4 – 6 units

Bruxism: 40 units

Hyperhidrosis: 100 units

What does a typical Botox treatment feel like?

Botox is administered quickly with a minimal amount of discomfort during the procedure; the process involves a series of tiny injections that do not require anesthetic or pain killers. The needle is extremely small so it feels like nothing more than a pin prick – other than the injection itself, the procedure is painless. Cotton swabs may be pressed against the injection sites to reduce bleeding (if any) and help prevent bruising. Other than that, there is no recovery time needed and you can go back to a normal day with little to no side effects. 

Botox is a toxin?! Is that safe?

Yes. Botox is 100% legal, safe and FDA approved. Botox should always be administered by a medical professional who has had the appropriate training and experience to ensure it is both safe and effective.  It is important to note that Botox is not recommended for pregnant patients, patients who are breastfeeding, or have certain neurological diseases. Dr Van Der Westhuyzen performs a consultation prior to any treatment.
