Is Botox Safe?

Is Botox Safe?


This is one of the most common questions we are asked at Visage Clinic. Used for more than 20 years in the U.S., Botox became licensed for medical use in the UK and Ireland more than ten years ago, in May 1994. Since then millions of Botox treatments have been safely and successfully performed. In all this time there have been no reported long term side effects. So, in answer the the question, Is Botox Safe? The answer is a very confident YES!

How long does Botox last?

Another question we are frequently asked is, how long does Botox last? Botox lasts 3 months. At Visage Clinic, we recommend that patients get their Botox done every 3 months for the first 2 or 3 treatments to get those bold wrinkles under control, and to give the face a break from wrinkle formation to help prevent those deep lines from forming.

Does Botox Hurt?

And right before Botox treatment we are always asked, Does Botox Hurt?
No! Botox injections do not hurt! At most you will feel something like a pin prick. Our doctors are Visage Clinic are very skilled in what they do and often people don’t even realise they have just got the injection. The needle is very small and the procedure is very quick.

What happens after I get Botox?

Botox Anti-Wrinkle injections takes about 4-5 days to start to work. The full effects of your Botox treatment are seen after 2 weeks. At Visage Clinic Cork, we see al our patients who have had Botox treatments back at the 2 week mark to assess their results. If a top-up of Botox is required at that time, then we will provide it free of charge. Patient care and satisfaction is of paramount importance to us at Visage Clinic. You are our number one priority!
