Beginners Guide to Botox - What is Botox?

Have you ever wondered what it would look like to get rid of those fine lines and wrinkles you keep noticing? We are here to show you that Botox is a popular and safe way to help with many cosmetic concerns, and is not as scary as you think!

What is Botox?

The idea of cosmetic surgery sounds intimidating, expensive, and painful – however you would be surprised at how fast and easy the injection process is!

Botox is a toxin that has the ability to block chemical signals to nerves. A small amount of Botox is injected into a crease in the skin, relaxing the muscle and stopping it from moving. The injected area will appear smoother and the muscles that cause wrinkles will relax.

The whole process is quick, fairly pain free and you can return to your normal daily activities right after the appointment!

How long does Botox last?

Unlike a tattoo, the effects of Botox are not permanent. Botox will fade over time and usually lasts from 3 to 6 months.

If you decide that Botox is not for you, you have the freedom to stop injections after the effects fade away.

Is Botox expensive?

The price of Botox depends on how much you are getting injected. Usually, you are purchasing Botox in a measurement called units – an area like the crow’s feet around your eyes could require 20 units.

It is best to organise a consultation to get an accurate quote on the number of units required for you and your concerns.

The average unit price in Queensland can range from $5 - $15.

The cost of a session is surprisingly cheap, however the main expense is the recurring cost to maintain the injections as the Botox fades away.

Dysport vs Botox

We also provide Dysport injections at PUMP Aesthetique. Dysport is very similar to Botox, but has mainly been approved for the use on glabella wrinkles (the area between your eyebrows). It is used for people who have moderate or severe cases. We will help diagnose your specific concerns to see if you are considered a good candidate for Dysport.

The effects are more noticeable than Botox, however they do not last as long.

It is strange to think how common Botox is nowadays, although not surprising as it has proven itself as one of the most effective anti-wrinkle treatments.

Botox injections are safe, effective, and are helping people around the world feel more confident.

PUMP Aesthetique is a great place to learn about Botox and how it is administered. If you need any information or guidance, the experts at PUMP Aesthetic are always here to help. We want you to have all the information you need to make the best decision for you and your concerns.
