Botox Injections

Botox is the only cosmetic treatment whose popularity has constantly increased since its inception in 2002. It is a widely used injectable for removing wrinkles and other aging signs from your skin. The FDA has approved Botox for both medical and aesthetic reasons. It works by freezing and weakening the muscles that cause wrinkles or fine lines to appear. As a result, you get younger-looking skin. The doctors usually recommend Botox for wrinkles, but it can treat several other problems as well.

Are You a Candidate?

You may be an ideal candidate for Botox injections in Dubai if you:

  • Have prominent wrinkles on the face, especially on the upper third area of the face.
  • Are suffering from a specific medical condition caused by abnormal underlying muscle movement.
  • Have realistic expectations from the results of the treatment.

What are the Uses of Botox?

Botox is used to correct the following cosmetic conditions;

  • Frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead furrows 
  • Bunny lines
  • Lip lines
  • Chin dimpling 
  • Neckbands 
  • Gummy smile 
  • Square jawline

Some of the significant medical uses of Botox include treating;

  • Chronic migraine
  • Overactive bladder
  • Blepharospasm
  • Hyperhidrosis 
  • Lower back pain


 The procedure is very simple, easy, and the same for every condition. The difference lies in the treatment area and the amount of drug to be injected. The steps for Botox treatment are:

  • Numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to prevent any pain and discomfort during the treatment. This step is optional.
  • After that, our expert will ask you to contract facial muscles to determine and mark the sites for Botox injections. The exact process is used for all other body areas too.
  • Finally, the expert will inject small quantities of Botox into the marked sites with the help of tiny needles.


There is no extensive recovery period for Botox Dubai. But the effects of the treatment will take a few days to subside completely. Just after the treatment, you may feel tightness and swelling in the skin, but it will be temporary. The bruising will also subside entirely in a couple of hours. You can return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after the treatment. 


You will see the final outcomes of Botox injections in 5-7 days. The results are temporary, and depending on the condition treated and its severity, they may last for 3 to 6 months.

Before & After

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

Botox Injections FAQs

What is Botox?

Botox is a drug that utilizes botulinum toxin to remove facial wrinkles and fine lines. It works by blocking chemical signals coming from the nerves and preventing muscle contraction. Whether you are experiencing aging signs in the form of visible lines and wrinkles or you are suffering from medical conditions like chronic migraines, blepharospasm, lower back pain, and excessive sweating, you can try Botox injections.

Can a Nurse Administer Botox?

Yes, a cosmetic nurse can administer Botox but under the supervision of an expert surgeon. Also, the nurse should have a certification from the American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery (AAAMS).

Can Botox be Used Around the Mouth?

Yes, you can use Botox injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smile lines around the mouth. 

Can I lie down after Botox?

No, you should not lie down for at least 4 hours after getting Botox injections. Lying down can cause the Botox to migrate to other parts of the face. 

Can I put makeup on after Botox?

Yes, you can apply makeup after Botox, but do not massage the treated area for 24 hours. Use powdered makeup that does not require rubbing.

Is Botox Injection Painful?

No, the Botox injections are not painful. Under topical anesthesia, you feel no pain, and even without a numbing agent, you only feel a slight pinch.
