What is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable drug that is used to weaken or paralyze muscle.
Botox is primarily used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, although it has many other uses for various medical conditions, including eye twitching and excessive sweating.
Botox can be used to treat various skin concerns which include wrinkles between the eyebrows, crow's feet, horizontal creases on the forehead, lines around the mouth, and more.
Correct administration by a medical professional is very important when it comes to botox injections. Not all clinical injectors go through extensive training or have enough experience to give you the results you are looking for.

Before and After Botox Treatment
"Will I look dramatically different?"
No. Our practitioners work like artists and will ensure a natural look is maintained. During your consultation, your doctor or pharmacist will discuss the best plan for you to achieve the results you want.
"What is in botox?"
Botox (botulinum toxin) is produced by the bacterium Clostridium. It blocks certain chemical signals from nerves, preventing muscles from contracting. Botox is used to relax the facial muscles on various areas of the face, resulting in the reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
"What happens at a botox consultation?"
During the consultation, our practitioners will discuss the results you intend to achieve from the treatment and advise you appropriately.
You will never be rushed and our highly skilled practitioners will discuss aspects of your skin you are unhappy with, your desired results, costs, and timings.
Our aim is for you to leave your consultation confident, fully informed, and looking forward to the treatment.
"Where on my body can I have botox?"
Botox injections are commonly be used on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes, with a proven track record and predictable results.
Botox can also be used around the mouth to prevent wrinkles from forming. It has other medical uses, such as excessive sweating, migraines, involuntary eye movements, and more.
"How many treatments do I need?"
Our practitioners inject an average of 4-20 units as a starting dose, depending on the region where botox is administered. Visit us at our Oxford clinic for a free consultation to find out how many botox units are right for you.
Because Botox lasts for up to 4 months, regular touchups are needed in order to maintain the results.
"How long do botox last?"
Results begin to show anywhere around 3 to 5 days after the treatment. It takes up to 14 days for results to be visible in certain areas.
The results will typically last from 3 to 12 months.
"Is Botox painful?"
Most patients only experience mild discomfort. As the needles used for dermal fillers are very fine, the amount of pain experienced by patients is minimal and the procedure does not require anesthesia.
One common side effect is minimal bruising, but even that tends to heal quickly.
"What if I don’t like the results, is Botox reversible?"
If you are unsatisfied with the result, you should allow Botox effects to wear off.
However, rest assured that we'll spend a great amount of time during the consultation to discuss your expectations so there should not be any surprises or unexpected results.
"Is Botox safe?"
Yes, when administered correctly by a medical professional.
Botox is approved by the FDA and has an excellent safety record.
At Ahmeys clinic, safety is our number one priority and we have rigorous training and auditing to ensure treatments are administered under strict medical protocols.
