BOTOX ® & Fillers
BOTOX ® Cosmetic, offered in Nairobi - Kenya, is a highly purified protein injected into the skin to relax the muscles that cause some kinds of wrinkles. While BOTOX ® Cosmetic can treat certain medical conditions, such as excessive sweating, it is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, primarily to reduce wrinkles on the face and neck. BOTOX ® Cosmetic injections are relatively painless, as the needle used is significantly smaller than those used for other injectable fillers.
The best candidates for BOTOX ® Cosmetic are men and women seeking an enhanced appearance with fewer wrinkles. In addition, it is important that those seeking treatment are in good physical health, are not pregnant or nursing and do not have a neuromuscular disorder. People seeking BOTOX ® Cosmetic injections should have realistic expectations regarding this procedure's abilities and should discuss their desired goals with their doctor beforehand.
At all our clinics in, Nairobi, Kenya, BOTOX ® Cosmetic injections are administered by a qualified physician using a very fine needle. The procedure only takes a few minutes and requires no anesthetic. Day-to-day activities can be resumed immediately afterwards. Wrinkles begin to fade within 24 hours, with continued improvement over the next five days.
Side effects of BOTOX ® Cosmetic are rare and are usually mild and temporary. The most common side effects are headaches and temporary redness or bruising of the skin at the site of injection. Any risk of complications can be reduced by choosing an experienced physician.

JUVÉDERM® XC is a new U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved version of the effective JUVÉDERM dermal filler. Like the original JUVÉDERM, JUVÉDERM XC is a smooth-consistency gel that, when injected, restores volume to the skin, and smooths away moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM XC, however, contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize the mild discomfort sometimes caused by the injections.
As a result, this new JUVÉDERM formula eliminates the need for a topical anesthetic, as well as the up-to-30-minute wait for it to take effect. The lidocaine in the injection takes only seconds to spread across the treatment area. Results may last 6 to 9 months, and, in some cases, up to year. However, additional touch-ups may be needed to maintain optimal results.
