Amsterdam Skin Clinic offers various cosmetic treatments, including Botox. Botox is a temporary muscle relaxant that is effective in reducing wrinkles. During the treatment, Botox is injected under the skin with a fine needle, leading to muscle relaxation and reduced muscle activity after approximately 2 weeks. This results in a reduction or even disappearance of fine lines and a smoother skin. Botox is completely broken down by the body, and the effects wear off after a few months. If desired, the treatment can be repeated. Additionally, Botox blocks the action of nerves on sweat glands, resulting in reduced perspiration.
After the treatment, small bumps may appear at the injection sites where the Botox has been injected. These bumps will diminish almost immediately and completely disappear within 1-2 days. The injection site may also be slightly sensitive. The effect starts becoming visible after 7 days, and after 2 weeks, the Botox is fully absorbed, revealing the final result. The effects typically last for about 3 months, after which we recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment.
