Frequently asked questions about botulinum toxin treatments
During the first intake we will determine whether a botox treatment is suitable for you and what you may expect as a result.
We ask that you do not apply any camouflaging creams on the ares to be treated the day of the treatment. The treatment is usually scheduled for 15 minutes. The treatment itself will only take a few minutes up to ten minutes. The botox will be injected with a super thin injection needle. The fluid that we use for this is bacteriostatic NaCl. In addition, the pain is much lower than you are used to (elsewhere). The doctor is specialized in treating people with a fear of needling, he/she is very calm and takes time for you, in case you are really nervous. She performs the treatment at a leisurely pace, so that the fluid is very carefully introduced into the muscle. The calmer this goes, the less you feel this. You can safely take a painkiller an hour before the treatment, but this will usually not be necessary.
After the treatment you can immediately resume to your daily activities. On the ares that are treated some red or blue spots may be visible or the skin can be locally a bit swollen. This usually disappears within 30 minutes. If needed we can camouflage these with a medical camouflage. Usually this is not necessary. Blue spots are rarely seen. It is important to prevent pressure on your head the first 4 hours after the treatment. You are requested not to lie down or bend over for the first 4 hours after the treatment to prevent spreading to other muscles. You should use the treated muscles intensively to accelerate absorption in the right muscles (smiling a lot, frowning, raising the eyebrows or squinting the eyes). Make sure the treated area is being touched as less as possible within the first hours. After 2 hours you can apply makeup and cleanse the face. The first days you should avoid strong pressure on the treated areas. Sports are allowed again the day after the treatment.
The effect of botox occurs two days to two weeks after the treatment and lasts for several months. After that it is no longer working. The first treatment is effective for 3 to 4 months. The maximum effectiveness lays between 4 to 6 weeks. With a following treatment the effectiveness will be longer, up to 6 months. Best is to plan a follow-up treatment after about 4 to 6 months, when the botulinum toxin has not yet fully worn off. Of course we can not give any guarantees. During the first intake we will let you know what you may expect as a result.
You can repeat the treatment as often as desired.
Best is to plan a follow-up appointment after about 4 to 6 months, when the botulinum toxin has not yet fully worn off.
In general a botox treatment is not reimbursed by your health insurer from the supplementary insurance. Sometimes a treatment for migraine can be reimbursed. You can contact your own health insurer for more information. You will always receive a quote in advance during the intake.
