Botox® is a very safe injectable and has been used in the world of cosmetics for over 40 years. By injecting Botox®, the muscle will relax and wrinkles, skin creases, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and a possible gummy smile will disappear. This will result in a softer and younger appearance. Additionally, Botox® is effective for the treatment of excessive sweating, tension headaches and neck pain, migraine, teeth grinding, and jaw clenching (bruxism).
Depending on the treatment, the result will be visible after 48 hours. A Botox treatment usually takes no more than 30 minutes.
- Treatment is more or less painless
- Hardly any side effects
- The effect of Botox lasts 3 to 4 months
- Botox is usually administered without sedation, but a local anaesthesia is possible
The Botox® treatment is discussed with the attending surgeon during the free and non-committal intake appointment. Our surgeons have a long-standing experience with the treatments using injectables. If you have a fear of needles, for example, we offer our expert personal guidance and extra attention to put you at ease and to prepare you for the treatment.
Various types of Botox® treatments
Botox® treatment against migraine
For the past 15 years, Botox has shown positive effects with all kinds of afflictions that are related to an increased muscle tension. The mechanism of the effect and process is still a subject of various studies, but the experience has demonstrated that about 70% of migraine (and other headaches) patients benefit from the use of Botox. These patients clearly notice an improvement in their complaints.
A treatment of the frontalis muscle is generally sufficient to give a clear improvement of the complaints. Depending on the pain, the back of the head can also be treated. In practice, the patient will keep a diary in order to “grade” the effect of Botox on the headache complaints in his or her specific situation. By administering a few small injections in a specific area, the tension of the relevant muscles is reduced. Most people find the injections painless. Read more.
Botox® treatment of excessive sweating
Many people suffer from excessive sweating. This can be especially noticeable under the armpits. Excessive sweating, also known by the medical term hyperhidrosis, can have a huge effect on someone’s social life.
There often is no clear cause for hyperhidrosis. The solution to the problem, however, is as simple as it is effective: Botuline Toxine (Botox®, Azzalure®). Injecting this substance into the skin leads to a reduction of the excessive sweat production with about 95%. It has no effect on the sweat production at other locations on the body. The excretion of waste products via perspiration also remains intact. Read more.
Botox® treatment of teeth grinding
Teeth grinding while you sleep is a problem that can lead to a number of complaints. Naturally, it increases the abrasion of the teeth (especially the enamel), but pain to the jaw joint and headaches due to an excessive tension on the masseter muscles are also very common complaints.
By injecting a dosed amount of botulinum toxin (Botox®, Azzalure®), the muscle tension can be reduced which may relieve the complaints. In consultation with you, the attending surgeon will determine where the injections need to be administered. This injection plan is noted in your file and will be evaluated during the check-up consultation. When necessary, the treatment can be corrected at that time by administering additional injections. The effect of the treatment lasts about three to six months. The costs of the treatment depend on the amount of botulinum toxin that is required. The standard dose can be compared to what the cosmetics call ‘one zone’. Read more.
