BOTOX Cosmetic injection ( anti-wrinkles injection) is the fastest growing cosmetic procedure in the aesthetic industry. According to Surgeons at Cork University Hospital (CUH), Ireland leads the way globally for the number of online searches for Botox injections.

Botulin toxin, known as BOTOX, is used to temporary reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving adults a smooth and youthful look.


What is so magical about Botox?


Botox is one of the safest ways available for the reduction of wrinkles. The only possible side effects are temporary and restricted to the area of injection. Botox stays only where injected, it does not roam thought the body.  At NewDerm Clinic you will always be given professional and individualised care. We will advise you on the best treatment plan to achieve your desired optimal result. This procedure has been broadly used and is considered a low-risk and successful way for treating aging skin.


How does Botox work?


It works by blocking signals from the nerve to the muscles beneath the skin that are related to expression lines. The injected muscle can no longer contract which causes the wrinkles to relax and the skin to flatten. This results in a fresher, unwrinkled look.

Wrinkles caused by sun damage, scarring and gravity will not respond to Botox.

The effect of Botox will eventually wear off in three to six month as muscle action gradually returns allowing wrinkles to reappear but can be maintained with two to three injections per year. Clinical studies suggest that the  lines and wrinkles can often appear less severe with time.

Although the procedure is quick and simple, Botox results  will not appear instantly. Typical onset of Botox is between 24 and 72 hours. Some people may require up to 7 days to see a result. The maximum effect of Botox treatments occurs at about 10 days after treatment.
