Botox is one of the injectable treatments offered at JKruger MediSpa by our experienced physician - Dr Kruger. It is one of the most valuable and vitalizing parts of an anti-aging treatment plan, and will assist your skin in reaching its full potential.
What is Botox(R) ?
Botox is a neuromodulator derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum.
What is Botox used for?
Botox is used to relax muscles in our bodies – this has an anti-wrinkle effect and reduces some of the signs of aging. Botox can also be used for other conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), bruxism (grinding teeth), migraines.
How long do the results last?
Results are generally noticed after 3 days, and may take up to 14 days to reach full effect. Results usually last 3-4 months, but in some people this may be prolonged or shortened. Please ask your injector what you can expect regarding the duration of your results.
Does the treatment hurt?
Botox is injected through a very small needle and most patients describe it as a pinprick sensation which is easily tolerable with minimal discomfort.
Is there any downtime?
After the procedure you can carry on with your day, and even go back to work. Please see our postcare instructions for more information.
