How does Botox & Dysport work? 

In aesthetic practices in Green Point and Somerset West, we use Botox and/or Dysport, to relax facial muscles. We don’t inject the wrinkle itself but rather a small group of tiny muscles that create the folds in the skin.  After the muscles have been relaxed for a while, the skin folds reduce and the end-result is a smooth, wrinkle-free rejuvenated skin. The results are typically seen, 3-10 days post treatment.

These treatments are also sometimes refered to as anti-wrinkle injections or wrinkle reduction treatments. Available by Dr Wade Merchant and Dr Melinda at our clinics in Green Point & Somerset West.

At your appointment: 

  1. All of our Botox appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes in duration.
  2. This is to ensure that you are well-informed, relaxed and don’t feel rushed.
  3. You will be seen by one of our experienced medical doctors.
  4. After an in-depth-consultation and assessment, your doctor will determine the amount of units required in order to achieve your desired result.
  5. Each treatment is customized to suit each patient’s unique facial anatomy and desired outcome.
  6. After your consultation, the injections itself only takes about 3-5 minutes to administer.
