Over time the stress of daily life, aging, and the sun can have a considerable impact on our faces. It is reflected in the wrinkles and expression lines that appear on round the eyes, on the forehead, nose, and mouth.

Among the most popular procedures to counteract these problems without resorting to surgery is through Botox. Botox is injected into problem areas, causing the impulses in the nerves to slow down and the muscle to become less active and temporarily reduce the lines, making it feel and look younger.

The cosmetic doctors at Clinique Chloé Médico Esthétique are certified doctors who have several non-invasive skincare treatments. The team at Chloé Médico Esthétique gives patients a place with cutting-edge technology equipment, comfortable facilities, and a professional environment. Doctors here can reduce fine lines and signs of premature aging with this non-surgical procedure, giving the individual more confidence about their appearance. They help you reflect on how young and radiant you feel.

Who is the ideal candidate for Botox treatment?

Botox is not only an aesthetic treatment, but it can also help various conditions such as cervical dystonia, writer's cramp, excessive sweating, achalasia, chronic pain, neuropathy, and migraines.

Getting ready for your Botox treatment

Before undergoing treatment, the doctors at the clinic will review your medical history and ensure that you are in good condition to receive the treatment. Then the areas to be treated will be discussed. This is usually in the eyes, nose, and mouth.

One month before Botox

Avoid using anticoagulant medications before your treatment.

A week before Botox

Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medication such as aspirin or ibuprofen. You will also be advised to avoid consuming alcohol at least one day before the treatment.

What to expect during your Botox treatment?

The treatment is usually very fast. It takes less than 20 minutes in most cases, depending on the number of injections. No anesthesia is needed. One of the main advantages of having a Botox treatment is that it takes a short time to recover since most people return to their normal life immediately.

After Botox treatment:

  • One day later

The treated area should not be touched or massaged for at least the first 12 hours after treatment. It should not lie down for at least the first 3 to 4 hours after treatment, to prevent the toxin from moving to an area where it should not be.

  • One week after Botox

The results of treatment vary with each person. Expression lines and wrinkles will be reduced within a few days, and the treatment lasts 3 to 6 months. As the results of the treatment begin to disappear, the lines and wrinkles begin to appear, so the Botox procedure will be repeated to ensure that it has a younger appearance.

Frequently asked questions about Botox treatment: 

  • When does Botox start working?

The results of the treatment begin to appear within 3 to 10 days, and the muscle begins to resume its movements within 3 to 5 months.

  • Who can perform a Botox treatment?

Botox should be performed by a qualified and experienced doctor. The in-house doctors at the clinic boast an outstanding portfolio and incredible experience handling all kinds of clients.

  • Is the treatment painful?

The treatment can be uncomfortable; many times, patients do not feel the injections at all.
