Botox© is an FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, wrinkle lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes in women and men. Botox© helps to make you look younger, less cross and less stressed. When Botox© is given properly by an experienced doctor it can make you look great without been obvious. Botox© temporarily reduces muscle activity in these areas and stops the repeated muscle contractions which result in frowning and squinting, which can cause wrinkles over years.
Botox© reduces dynamic wrinkles and lines in the forehead and around the eyes which occur when you use your muscles to make facial expressions. Static wrinkles that are present when you are not forming facial expressions (i.e. when your face is at rest) will not disappear with Botox© but may soften with repeated treatments over months or years. In 2015, more than 6.7 million Botox© procedures were performed in the US making it the most common minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. Botox© is also very useful for excessive underarm sweating and migrain.
Botox© is administered by Dr Buckley in Kerry Skin Clinic which is situated in The Ashe Street Clinic, Tralee. Dr Buckley is Allergan trained in this technique and has been injecting Botox© for almost 15 years. He is one of the most experienced injectors in Ireland and teaches doctors about dermatology and cosmetic medicine at international conferences all around the world. He uses tiny needles which are similar in size to an acupuncture needle. You may notice results within twenty-four to forty-eight hours and maximum results are obtained after one to two weeks. Botox© lasts for three to six months depending on the area injected.
