Overview:

Botox® is a widely used drug that we safely inject into small facial muscles to relax and alleviate wrinkles. Many patients choose to combine it with wrinkle fillers for a superior aesthetic result.

Botox gives you a fresher, more youthful appearance. Delivered by injection from a skilled surgeon, these procedures require no downtime, and may help postpone more expensive surgical procedures.

Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most requested treatments, not only in Amman, but the rest of the world. The drug is injected to weaken the specific muscles around your eyes and forehead. These small muscles are responsible for the frown lines and deep wrinkles that occur over time. The injection temporarily eliminates wrinkles without disturbing normal function.

Botox® treatment consists of a number of tiny injections made with a very fine needle directly into the muscle. Your cosmetic surgeon first identifies the proper points of injection. Next, the proper dose will be determined. Different patients may require a larger or smaller dose of Botox®. If necessary, a numbing cream can be applied to the area for comfort (most patients do not need it).

Effects of the Botox® injections usually begin to appear within 3-5 days. The results generally last around three to six months, after which time, the injections must be repeated. There is some current evidence suggesting that repeated Botox® injections may ultimately lead to longer lasting results.

Swelling or bruising may occur at Botox® injection sites. Ice may be applied for one hour after injection to decrease bruising and swelling. You may apply makeup one hour after the injections if desired.
