  • What is Botox and how does it work?
  • We’ll define Botox and explain how it works before discussing its pros and cons.
  • Type A Botulinum Toxin is purified into Botox. In 1989, the FDA approved the substance for medical use, and in 2002, for cosmetic use.


Botox injections relax and stop muscle contractions by blocking nerve signals. Botox can treat medical conditions as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons lists these Botox treatments:

• Reduce frown, lip, and bunny lines

• Reduce crow’s feet

• Reduce neck bands

• Recline mandible Make proper gummy smiles

Botox injections at Elfreda Beauty help prevent or improve fine lines and facial creases.

Consider these pros and cons:

Despite our strong support for this product, we will tell you the truth. This is a big choice. Explain why we love it…

Proven to perform

Simply put, it works. The FDA approved this popular cosmetic procedure. Millions of people have been treated and satisfied. For three to four months, Botox eliminates creases. To ensure safe and effective Botox injections, choose a qualified provider.

Quick and safe procedure

Botox takes 30 minutes, including preparation and consultation. Injecting takes under 10 minutes. Present yourself at lunchtime or any time. After treatment, you can resume normal routine.

No downtime

The lack of recovery time after these injections is a major benefit. Some patients develop small blemishes at the injection site, but cosmetics can hide them. It is enough to avoid vigourous physical activity for 24 hours after treatment and follow any other post-treatment instructions from our clinicians.

Quick results

One of Botox’s biggest benefits is its quick results. Results will appear within seven days of treatment, with the full effect taking 10–14 days.

Absence of permanence

This may benefit some. This is why…Botox fades after a few months, so you can decide whether to keep getting it or go back to your old look. You can let Botox wear off if you’re unhappy with the results; it will make you look untreated. Botox makes you look refreshed and authentic. Some patients like the transient treatment because it allows for experimentation and comparison, especially after the first session.

Very few risks

Botox has been extensively studied and is safe. We’ve all heard of unlicensed injectors using deadly Botox imitations. Visit a clinic with certified aesthetic injectors and choose the right one from the start to reduce risk.

At our Chatswood and Miranda Botox clinics, certified aesthetic nurse specialists and physician assistants provide professional treatments. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Additional cosmetic benefits

Botox Cosmetic is mostly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also treat excessive perspiration.

Avoidable surgery

If a patient needs a facelift, Botox cannot replace plastic surgery. However, many believe plastic surgery is needed to achieve some Botox effects. Consult about injectables if you cannot have surgery. Injectables (Botox, dermal filler, PDO threads) can help many of our patients achieve their goals without incisions or anaesthesia.

Adaptable Treatments

There is no universal Botox procedure. Before treatment, you and your provider will discuss your main concerns and goals. Optimal Botox injection sites will be suggested.

To achieve gradual, buildable results, inject small amounts. Additional Botox injections may be needed for deeper creases. Thinner lines need less material. Personalising treatments gives them more authenticity.


  • Botox Cons

Botox has pros and cons to consider before getting it.

Absence of permanence

Although this was listed as a benefit, Botox may have this drawback. If you like Botox, you must get it three to four times a year to keep your wrinkles away. To maintain the desired appearance, you must reapply every three to four months. Pre-booking at Elfreda Beauty reduces the scam’s impact and gives you a Botox discount (yay).

Effective treatment requires multiple treatments.

Some patients may reapply Botox two weeks later to reduce lines that didn’t respond or increase paralysis. Sometimes they need more units to find what they want. This may not be a disadvantage, especially for novice Botox users who may prefer to start cautiously to gauge their response, but it may require additional units and costs.

We schedule a two-week follow-up for each patient to evaluate their Botox integration. We value honest dialogue with clients and strive for your complete satisfaction. The follow-up appointment and candidly telling your injector how you feel about the results are crucial.

Sometimes facial expressions are forgotten.

Botox is widely used because it prevents wrinkles and paralyses muscles. However, facial expressions may be lost. Botox injection errors can freeze facial muscles and cause constant surprise.

Cranium effects are another. Brow ptosis is improper eyebrow aptosis. One or both sides of the face may be affected. When the cranium cannot be raised. This is often unavoidable with an experienced injector who listens to your concerns and knows where to inject Botox to prevent this effect.

Possible drawbacks

Botox has few side effects, but keep in mind that they are rare.
Rare but possible:

  • An injection site bruise
  • Headache

Ultra rare:

  • Nausea
  • Minor speech impairment
  • Eyelid/brow ptosis
  • Allergic reactions


If this happens, consult your injector for advice on next steps.
