Botox Injections in Dubai | Botox Treatment

Botox is an aesthetic injectable treatment for aging signs on the face. It is used to target wrinkles and creases caused by repetitive muscle contractions, which occur during actions like smiling, frowning, squinting, and making facial expressions. 

Besides aiding wrinkle reduction, Botox injections may also help prevent their occurrence.

What is Botox and How Does It Work?

Botox is the brand name of an injectable solution containing botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum. When injected into the skin, this solution temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles and creases, smoothening the surface. This may help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, bunny lines, and fine lines in various areas of the facial skin.

What are the Benefits of Botox Injections?

The most salient benefits of Botox injections in Dubai are as follows:

  • Non-surgical treatment.
  • Quick procedure that generally lasts 15-30 minutes.
  • No extensive pre- and post-procedure care.
  • No downtime, meaning you can return to work immediately.

Common Areas For Botox Treatment

Botox injections are commonly administered in the areas like:

  • Forehead
  • Between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Upper eyebrow
  • Bunny lines
  • Smile lines
  • Lip lines
  • Dimpled chin
  • Gummy smile

Preparation Before the Procedure

Botox injections are minimally invasive and typically require minimal preparation. Even so, following a few steps can help ensure a favorable outcome. These steps may include the following.

  • Avoid NSAIDs for about seven days before the treatment.
  • Avoid blood thinning medications.
  • Gently cleanse your face before the treatment.
  • If you get any specific instructions from your treatment provider, be sure to follow those diligently.


The steps involved in the Botox procedure are as follows:

  • The treatment provider may apply a numbing solution to avoid discomfort caused by the needle.
  • After that, they will ask you to contract facial muscles to determine and mark the injection sites.
  • They will administer Botox injections in units measurable on the syringe. The number of units required can vary based on the treatment area.
  • The duration of the procedure may vary, usually between 10-30 minutes, depending on the number of units administered.

What to Expect After the Procedure?

Downtime is typically not required after the Botox procedure, meaning you may resume your routine activities immediately. You may experience a few side effects, which are usually temporary and too minor to cause significant disruption. They may include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Headache
  • Neck pain
  • Flu-like symptoms

Botox Aftercare

Your practitioner may advise a few guidelines after administering Botox. Those may include the following:

  • Avoid physical activities to maintain a normal heart rate for about 24 hours.
  • Avoid rubbing the treated area to prevent the injected Botox from dissipating.
  • Avoid blood thinning medications for about a week.

Botox Results 

Botox results are usually apparent 10-15 days after the procedure. These results are not immediate because Botox takes a few days (usually two to four) to weaken the targeted muscles. It would take a few more days for wrinkles and fine lines to become less visible.

The results of Botox injections typically last up to three months, after which the aging signs start reappearing. You can get a repeat Botox treatment to retain the wrinkle-free appearance.

The results may vary from person to person because each case is different.

How much does Botox cost in Dubai? 

The per-unit cost of Botox injections is AED 42. Therefore, the primary determinant of the treatment price is the number of units you receive. Other factors that influence the cost of Botox injections in Dubai may include:

  • The size of the treatment area
  • The treatment facility’s location and reputation
  • The practitioner’s expertise
