Botox is a facial enhancement treatment and is essentially a cosmetic treatment for muscular conditions. Botulinum toxin is the neurotoxin from which it is made, and the treatment involves temporary muscle paralysis.
Used to minimize fine lines, creases, and wrinkles, the treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic and anti-aging treatments in the world. The neurotoxin is also used for the treatment of disorders nor related to the skin such as loose bladders, eyelid spasms, migraines, and even cerebral palsy.
At Refirm, the treatment aims to treat:
Lines and wrinkles
How it Works
At Refirm, the patient is never subjected straight to the injection on an operation table.
First, an evaluation and a consultation takes place during which the patient’s condition is discussed. Based on their observations and findings, the doctor decides the feasibility of the treatment and proceeds accordingly.
Before your treatment begins, an assistant or the doctor will take a photo of your face—this will be later shown to you against your post-operation face.
You’ll be given a consent form—and we advise you to read it carefully. Your treatment will begin once you sign the form.
A neurotoxin called the botulinum toxin that is derived from a bacterium called the Clostridium botulinum is the primary material used for the treatment. The powder that contains the bacterium is mixed and diluted in saline.
The diluted substance is then used for injection. The target location for injection is the neuromuscular tissue.
The time that it takes for the neurotoxin to be effective is between 1 to 3 days, and up to 5 days, in extremely rare cases.
Pregnant and allergic individuals are discouraged from taking the treatment.

Before and After the Treatment
There is more than one reason for wrinkles and fine lines to appear on your face. The causes of this can be attributed to aging, dry skin or the skin losing its elasticity. The skin begins to sag and develops deep and shallow ridges, particularly around the eyes and mouth, giving you a wizened outlook.
After our Botox Cosmetic treatment, you will see a visible change in the elasticity and overall appearance of your skin. It will be more taut, fine, and smooth; with the wrinkles and creases having been reduced.
