What is ‘Bro-tox’?
‘Bro-tox’. Anti- Wrinkle injections are commonly referred to as ‘Botox’, short for Botulinum Toxin. A naturally occurring purified protein that is injected into facial areas targeted for rejuvenation. Muscles in the face contract and over time, this causes wrinkles and lines to form. Anti- Wrinkle injections temporarily stop these muscles from contracting, resulting in a refreshed appearance. This has been further marketed as “Bro-tox”, Botox for men.
How does Anti-wrinkle injections (aka Botox) work?
Very tiny amounts of botox are injected into the muscle, once in the muscle the botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles which prevent them from contracting, this results in no muscle movement and therefore smoothing out the lines and wrinkles.
How long does the treatment last?
Between 3-5 months.
How much does Botox cost?
- 1 area £120
- 2 areas £200
- 3 areas £230
- Additional areas £40
Additional cost for men £50 (they generally require a higher dose) however Jodie’s opinion is that you have the standard dose and see how you get on first.
Is it painful?
Most clients consider the treatment to be pain free, however a few clients will describe it as being a little uncomfortable.
How long does it take?
The procedure takes just 15-20 minutes.
Are there any contraindications?
- Treatment is not suitable for pregnant or breast feeding women
- Anyone with a history of severe allergic reactions
