Unlocking Youthful Radiance with Botulinum Toxin Injectable Treatments

Botulinum Toxin, commonly referred to as Botox® or Dysport®, is a prescription medication revered for its cosmetic abilities in diminishing wrinkles. Administered by skilled professionals at Skin Renewal, these injections work by intercepting nerve signals responsible for muscle contractions, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles. 

FDA-approved for addressing moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines, Botox® or Dysport® injections are a minimally invasive procedure performed by our adept doctors at Skin Renewal. The procedure is virtually painless, with noticeable results manifesting within 10-14 days post-injection. 

It's crucial to grasp that Botox® or Dysport® offers a temporary fix. Its effects typically last 3 to 4 months before muscle movement resumes, necessitating a repeat procedure to maintain results. 

Dynamic vs. Static Wrinkles: 

Understanding the nature of wrinkles is pivotal. Dynamic wrinkles, born from facial expressions and repetitive movements, are effectively targeted by Botox® or Dysport®. These wrinkles, which deepen with age, can be softened and prevented from becoming static wrinkles, which persist even at rest. 

Areas of Treatment: 

Botox® or Dysport® for Upper Face: Targeting dynamic wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes, these injections provide a rejuvenating lift, erasing worry lines and enhancing a relaxed, approachable visage. 

Botox® or Dysport® for Lower Face: In skilled hands, it can extend its benefits to the lower face, mitigating permanent mouth frowns and barcode lines and facilitating a subtle jowl and neck lift, restoring youthful contours. 

Expanding Applications: 

Skin Renewal's Microtox Glow Facial:

Experience the Microtox Glow Facial, a cutting-edge skincare solution seamlessly combining micro-needling techniques with specialised Botulinum application (no injections involved). This meticulously crafted treatment is designed to invigorate and elevate the skin's natural radiance and texture, providing a rejuvenating skincare experience.

For personalised guidance and a doctor-led approach to Botox® or Dysport® treatments, we encourage you to consult with our knowledgeable professionals at Skin Renewal. Let us embark on a journey to unlock your youthful radiance, one injection at a time. 

frequently asked
questions

Are Botox® & Dysport® treatments available at all Skin Renewal clinics?
What are botulinum toxin treatments, and how do they work?

Botulinum toxin treatments, such as Botox® and Dysport® injections, temporarily inhibit muscle movement. This reduces the repetitive facial motions that cause wrinkles, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

How much Botox® or Dysport® is needed for each area?

The dosage of Botox® or Dysport® units varies among patients due to several factors:

  • Muscle Mass Differences: Men generally have larger muscle mass, which may require higher doses of Botox® or Dysport® for optimal results.
  • Facial Expression Variances: Individual differences in facial expressions influence dosage requirements; some individuals have less expressive faces, while others are more animated.
  • Facial Muscle Recruitment: After Botulinum Toxin administration, some individuals may recruit additional facial muscles, affecting the required dosage.
  • Biochemical Variations: Patients with specific biochemical differences, such as those taking fat burners, may metabolise Botulinum Toxin differently, impacting the duration of treatment effects.
  • Skin Condition: Sun-damaged skin can alter the efficacy of Botulinum Toxin, necessitating adjustments in the unit dosage.

At Skin Renewal, all new patients must schedule a follow-up appointment with the doctor two weeks after the initial injection to evaluate the outcome. Additional injections may be necessary to achieve optimal results, with charges applied for top-ups exceeding 2 to 4 units.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with botulinum toxin treatments?

Ensure your safety and achieve optimal results by choosing reputable products such as Botox® or Dysport® and selecting a medical professional who is well-trained in administering these treatments. It is advisable to seek treatment from doctors who regularly perform these procedures to minimise the risk of complications, such as incorrectly placed injections or dosage miscalculations, which can lead to undesirable outcomes like brow or eyelid drooping.

Common risks include bruising and temporary headaches, while infections are rare. Allergic reactions to these brands are exceedingly uncommon. Although botulinum toxin doses are generally safe, caution is advised during pregnancy due to the lack of official risk studies in this regard.

What to expect after a Botox® or Dysport® injectable treatment?

After a botulinum toxin procedure, you may experience temporary side effects such as small, mosquito-bite-like areas at the injection sites. These typically last between 20 to 60 minutes and resolve on their own. Small red areas may occasionally appear at the injection sites but usually disappear within a couple of days. To minimise the risk of botulinum toxin diffusion to adjacent areas, it is advisable to avoid lying down for at least 4 hours post-procedure.

You can resume your regular skincare routine immediately after treatment, and makeup application is allowed. However, avoid exercising for 24 hours following botulinum toxin injections.

To reduce the risk of bruising, refrain from using aspirin-containing products or high-dose Vitamin E supplements for 48 hours before the procedure. Ideally, these should be avoided for 10 days prior to the treatment.

How long does Botox® or Dysport® last?

After treatment, initial line improvements may become noticeable within 4 days, with the full effect typically manifesting after 14 days. Results vary and can last up to 4 months, depending on individual response and initial botulinum toxin dosage.

"Baby Botox®" involves administering botulinum toxin in three areas at half the usual dose. This provides a shorter-lasting effect of 6 to 8 weeks, ideal for actors requiring facial expressions.

Repeated Botulinum Toxin treatments can extend the duration of results over time. Patients with hyperactive brows may experience a shorter duration of effect as the botulinum toxin is metabolised more quickly in these individuals.

Can Botox® or Dysport® injections be combined with other aesthetic treatments?

Yes, Botox® or Dysport® injections can be safely combined with other cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers, chemical peels, or laser treatments, to enhance overall facial rejuvenation. Our doctors can create a customised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

What an amazing experience. I was so nervous as this was my first time getting any procedure done and I have very thin and sensitive skin and the staff were so friendly and welcoming and calming and gave me all the reassurance I needed for the botox procedure and answered all my questions and concerns in the weeks and months even leading up to it, during the session as well as after the session. Dr Merle is absolutely amazing. She was so professional, kind, compassionate and knowledgeable and was so soothing with every minute that passed during the procedure. Not to mention the whole aura look and feel of the place feels like you are in heaven. Today is day 1 so look forward to seeing the results and hoping for the best but I know Skin Renewal will guide me and be my side every step of the way in the weeks to come. Highly recommend to anyone!

I would give this 10 stars if I could. I'm extremely happy with the service from Dr. Lestonn Lawn. I basically got a far better service for half the price of what I would usually get it for overseas. He and his shadowing doctor were extremely professional and competent. Honestly I cannot reiterate enough that I got better results in Sandton than I did in Manhattan for half the price. Highly recommend.
