Botox

Are you bothered by your wrinkles? Do you have an angry look or experience a heavy feeling around the eyes? Or do you suffer from recurring headaches?

Muscle relaxants can provide relief for cosmetic and medical reasons. Botulinum toxin, is a muscle relaxant that temporarily prevents the treated muscle from contracting. Because the muscle no longer contracts properly, a wrinkle can no longer form in the skin. As a result, the skin becomes smoother and tighter. Wrinkles can thus be both reduced and prevented. A treatment with botox gives about three to four months of results. After that, the treatment can be repeated. Botox treatments are available in our clinics The Hague and Amsterdam.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are muscle relaxants?
ject-arrow

A muscle relaxant, or botulinum toxin, is a neuromodulator that temporarily relaxes the muscles being treated. This happens because at the cellular level, the transition from nerve to muscle is blocked. Thus, the muscle temporarily receives no signal to contract. The skin lies over the facial muscles like a blanket. When these muscles can no longer contract, it also cannot create a wrinkle in the skin. So in addition to being able to fade existing wrinkles, it also works preventively. This is especially beneficial if you are between the ages of 20 and 30, and want to prevent wrinkles later in life.

Is botox safe?
ject-arrow

Botulinum toxin is considered very safe worldwide. Indeed, it has been used in medicine for various medical purposes since the 1970s. Clinical and scientific research have demonstrated the safety of botulinum toxin for many years. Nevertheless, it is important to have treatment with botox at a professional clinic with experienced doctors. If the treatment is not performed competently, the wrong facial muscles may be hit, causing unwanted effects. It is also possible that people are hypersensitive to (one of the components of) botox. It is important that in such cases a doctor can act appropriately and medically.

What are possible side effects?
ject-arrow

After treatment, mild swelling and redness around the injection site may be present. In a few cases, there may be a small bruise.

Side effects from botox are rare. Sometimes people may experience a temporary headache about a week after treatment. In certain areas, such as the forehead, a tight feeling may be experienced in the first two weeks. Also, certain areas may experience some fluid collection around the eyes in the first few weeks. This is often when your body has to get used to the effect of the botulinum toxin. These side effects often disappear by themselves.

If the botox was not injected properly, or the aftercare advice was not followed properly, the botox may act on an unintended muscle. Rare side effects, such as drooping eyebrows or eyelids, may then occur. At a professional clinic with extensive experience, these side effects almost never occur.

In the most extreme case, there is hypersensitivity or allergy to a component of botox. This may manifest as excessive swelling or redness of the skin. In this case, the doctor may need to prescribe anti-allergic medication.

Which botox does JECT Clinics work with?
ject-arrow

At JECT Clinics, we work with Azzalure and Alluzience. Both botulinum toxins come from Galderma, Europe's largest manufacturer in the field of dermatological injectables.

These A-brands have been on the market for years and have good experience. A unique feature of both brands is their rapid duration of action. Where other muscle relaxants require types of ten to fourteen days to work, the effect of Azzalure (regular botox) often starts after only five days and the Alluzience even after 24 hours.

What can and cannot you do after treatment with botox?
ject-arrow

After treatment, it is important to make sure that the botox cannot move. For this purpose, it is important not to lie flat for the first four hours. Also you should not rub or push in the treated area.

For the first two days you should not exercise or lift heavy things. Also, visiting the sauna, spa or pool is not recommended.

How often should you repeat botox treatment?
ject-arrow

On average, a treatment with botox works for three to four months. When the effect of the botox wears off, it is recommended to repeat the treatment. This way you can maintain the result well and you do not have to keep starting from scratch. If the treatments are repeated regularly in the beginning, the time frame becomes longer and longer. For example, it is then often no longer necessary every three to four months, but sometimes only after six to seven months.
