Botox Cosmetic Injections

Botox in Dubai is a well-known medication to remove the appearance of facial wrinkles. Approved by the US FDA, Botox improves moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. Lines between the eyebrows are also called glabellar lines.

These lines appear over the upper face when a person frowns or smile as a result of contraction of two major muscles between the eyebrows and of the muscle around the eyes. Over the years, these lines become significant and appear over the head even if a person is sound asleep. Thus, glabellar lines make a person’s face tired or angry.

Botox Anti-Wrinkle Injections in Dubai significantly reduce glabellar and periocular lines by injecting small doses of medication at different points. To prevent the contraction of muscles, injection paralyses nerve signals to them. Swelling may occur only for a short while. However, a physician may apply general anaesthetic cream or a cold pack to prevent discomfort before the administration of medication. The whole procedure is completed in about 10 minutes, without any downtime.  Usually, the improvement will be visible within 4-5 of days and is sometimes likely to continue for months. Therefore, results may take as long as 4-6 months, varying from one individual to another.

For Botox in Dubai, it will be best to consult an experienced dermatologist, plastic surgeon or an aesthetic specialist physician. Botox Dubai is widely prescribed procedure and is recommended for individuals between 18 to 65 years of age.
