Facial Aesthetics > Botox Injections
Botulinum toxin injections are medical treatments that can be used to help relax facial muscles.
This makes lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, less obvious. Other uses include reduction of a Gummy Smile and treatment of excessive sweating mostly commonly from the arm pits.
They can temporarily enhance your appearance without the need for surgery.

What is involved in a Botox treatment?
During your consultation Dr Khangura will take time to understand your medical history and reasons for wanting the treatment and your treatment goals.
Botox injections are administered with a very fine needle and usually patients feel very little discomfort.
Before administration your skin is cleaned, and small amounts of botulinum toxin are injected into the muscles of the face to be treated.
Several injections are usually needed at different sites. It takes about 10 minutes.
After the Botox treatment
You won’t see any difference straight away: it takes about three to five days before the injections take effect, and up to three weeks for the full effect to be seen.
Avoid massaging or rubbing the treated areas for up to three days.
The effects generally last for about four to six months. If you want to maintain the effect, you’ll need regular follow-up injections.
