At BodhiZen Clinic, we ensure that we only provide the best products to help you obtain the best results. Our range of Botulinum Toxin A is chosen by us and provided by Botox by Allergan and Azzalure.
Monica Halem, Columbia University Dermatologist says that Botox works by blocking the nerves that contract muscles; this softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is most effective in lines and wrinkles that have not quite set yet, ie. Wrinkles that appear when moving your face – if you don’t move the muscle, you don’t form the wrinkle!
Botox can be used for lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines, crows feet, peri-oral lipstick lines, down turned mouths, 'Bunny s' eye brow lift, pitted chin and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Lines and wrinkles are a natural and unstoppable part of the ageing process, and whilst they are inevitable, they can be reduced and temporarily prevented with the use of Botulinum Toxin Type A.

Before Treatment, a full medical history form must be filled out in order that your Botox Clinician is aware of any medication you are taking. We also advise that you speak to your doctor first before treatment commences.
A treatment plan will be created for you in order that you achieve the desired results; your Clinician will run through all relevant information in thorough detail with you at your consultation and will assess your suitability for this treatment.
Botox by Allergan and Azzalure can take from 2 days to up to 2 weeks before a muscle relaxing effect occurs. Remember, however, that the aim of treatment is not to stop all expression, but to reduce the intensity of the muscle activity that causes the lines in the areas treated. This gives the skin a chance to rest from the repeated furrowing and creasing that can occur hundreds of times a day, enabling the wrinkles or folds to gradually soften overtime.
To help reduce the accidental spread of the Botulinum Toxin to neighbouring muscle groups, we recommend that you avoid lying flat for 4 hours post treatment. In addition to this, for the first 24 hours you should avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area, any vigorous exercise and any facial beauty treatments.
After the 24 hour period after treatment you may return to your normal skin care regime.
What happens once I have had my treatment?
It can take from 2 days to 2 weeks to see results from the treatment. Some clients experience a slight headache after their injections; this can be managed with paracetamol if required.
When the toxin begins to work, you may notice some temporary ‘sensations’ around the treated area. This is nothing to worry about and is simply the un-treated muscles adjusting to changes. we always recommend a top up of toxin at your review to correct any symmetry issues that may be personal to you to achieve your best outcome. By experiance we are aware that your best outcome will be achieved over a succession of approximately 2-3 treatments spread out over 3-4 months apart
What should I do if my treatment doesn’t appear to be working, or if I have any problems?
If this is the first time that you have received Botulinum Toxin with ourselves at BodhiZen Clinic, we would ideally like to see you a couple of weeks after treatment to discuss the results and identify your symmetry needs. If you cannot schedule a return appointment and you find that you have had no observable effect after 2 weeks, don’t hesitate to contact us (although this is extremely rare.
