BOTOX

At Millennium Cosmetic Clinic, we offer one of the worlds’ leading brands of facial injections – Botox – to improve the appearance of your skin. Botox uses a form of botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze muscle activity. Botox injections are the perfect form of treatment to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and crow’s feet in adults. Interestingly, it can also be used to treat other problems such as repetitive neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder, and lazy eye. These injections have also been known to help with chronic migraines in some people.

Why Use Botox?

If you suffer from:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s-feet, the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes
  • Forehead furrows
  • Migraine headaches

Then these injections can help block certain chemical signals from your nerves that cause your facial muscles to contract. The injections temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that underlie your skin, and cause these wrinkles.

Are There Any Side-Effects?

The injections are relatively safe when performed by one of our experienced injectors. However, as with all forms of treatment, there are some possible side effects to be aware of, including:

  • Pain, swelling or bruising
  • Headache or flu-like symptoms
  • Droopy eyelid or cockeyed eyebrows
  • Crooked smile or drooling
  • Eye dryness or excessive tearing

In order to reduce the possibility of side-effects occurring, we only employ qualified, experienced nurse injectors, who specialize in injections. A pre-treatment consultation with these injectors is mandatory before you are accepted for treatment, during which we will advise you on the procedure and help determine if it best suits your needs and health.
