What are Botox Injections?

Botox injections are a cosmetic treatment used by professionals to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. The injections contain “Botox,” a botulinum toxin that is a neurotoxic protein that is produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. This is the same bacteria responsible for food poisoning. However, the botulinum is purified and is only used by licensed healthcare professionals.

The injections keep muscles from moving and are effective for a certain amount of time. These injections are not a permanent treatment for facial wrinkles.

Why are Botox Injections Done?

Botox injections work by blocking certain signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. This is why the treatment is often used to treat facial wrinkles, such as frown lines and other wrinkles.

Treatments usually last between 3-6 months.

How are Botox Injections Done?

Botox injections are done in your medical professional’s office. They use a thin needle to inject small amounts of Botox into your skin and/or muscles. The number of injections required depends on the size of the treatment area and other factors.

The most common treatment areas include:

  •     Forehead lines
  •     Frown lines
  •     Crow’s feet
  •     Mouth & nose lines

It takes about 30 minutes to administer our injections. The entire process involves cleaning and preparing the treatment area, marking out where the injections will be done. However, the treatment could take a little longer, depending on how many areas require treatment.

Anaesthesia is usually not required, as most patients tolerate the treatment, which is done with very fine needles. However, we can discuss the use of a topical numbing cream that can be used if desired.

Aftercare involves not touching or rubbing your face for the first 24 hours after treatment. Doing so could cause the product to spread to other areas of your face. You can also return to work immediately after the procedure if you feel up to doing so.

What to Consider Before Having Botox Injections

There are several things to consider before having Botox injections, including why you’d like to have this treatment:


Ensure the healthcare professional doing the injections is qualified and experienced.


The person giving the Botox treatment needs to be a medical practitioner who has the training, necessary skills, and insurance for these procedures. Avoid healthcare professionals who have no training or who have recently completed a training course on how to inject Botox.


Ask these questions when seeing the practitioner:

What is their training, qualifications and experience?

Are there any potential risks or side effects?

What is the product they’ll use? Is the product licensed? How and where is it made?

What happens if something goes wrong?

What insurance coverage does the healthcare professional have?

Be aware that Botox injections can only be prescribed in person by a qualified medical practitioner, such as a doctor, dentist, pharmacist prescriber, or nurse prescriber.

As with other medical treatments, Botox injections also come with certain risks and side effects, including:


Headache and flu-type symptoms for up to 24 hours after treatment


Bruising, swelling, and redness where the needle(s) enter the skin


A “frozen” appearance; you may not be able to move the muscles of your face if too much Botox is used


Temporary weakness and facial drooping; eyebrows and eyelids may droop if the injections move into these areas


Blurred or double vision, which is a rare side effect that can happen if the injections are done around the eyes


Breathing problems may develop if Botox Leeds is injected into the neck, though this is a rare side effect

What are the Benefits of Botox Injections?

Botox injections are a safe treatment that’s used everyday. The treatment comes with the following benefits:

Enhances Natural Beauty

One of the major benefits of Botox treatment is that it’s an easy way to look refreshed and younger without surgery. While the treatment may not completely get rid of wrinkles, your face will look more youthful and rested overall.

Non-Invasive Treatment

Botox injections are a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that is fast and non-invasive. Depending on the number of areas to be treated, this procedure usually takes a few minutes to complete.

Almost Immediate Results

Another significant benefit of Botox treatment is that it offers almost immediate results. After your injections, you may see results as soon as three to four days after treatment. However, Botox continues to work over the next three months.

Inexpensive Cosmetic Procedure

Botox Leeds treatments are an inexpensive cosmetic procedure compared to surgical treatments.

Bespoke Treatment Option

Another major benefit of Botox treatments is that they are customised for each patient. You and your doctor will discuss which areas of your face are of most concern. The doctor will then determine which areas require treatment.
