At LA, we only stock the highest quality products. Our preferred ‘botulinum toxin’ is manufactured by Allergan, and is the original ‘Botox®’, first approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1989, making it the first botulinum toxin type A product to be approved in the world.
Botox® is a prescription-only medical product and is injected, in very small amounts, into specific muscles, in order to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It acts by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles and so reducing muscle movement. The results can last around 3 to 6 months, depending on the individual.
During your appointment, a full consultation will take place and a consent form will be given to you to complete and sign. The procedure can either be completed after the consultation, or at a later date. The treatment takes about ten minutes to complete.
The results start to show around day 3 post treatment and develop over during the subsequent two weeks. Follow up appointments are generally advised at two weeks, if required, to ensure the treatment has had time to develop and the desired results have been achieved.
Every aesthetic practitioner will have their own post procedure instructions, however at LA we only ask you to refrain from exercise until the following day and to avoid lying down flat for 4 hours.
