Botox Consent


Information and Consent for Botulinum A Toxin (BTXA) ‘Botox’

Important Background to the Consent Process

Your clinician wishes to help you make an informed decision about your treatment options and any relevant alternative options. You may at any time decline treatment even after giving your consent.

Whilst your clinician will make every effort to understand what significance you would attach to any particular risk it is important to us that you feel comfortable enough to question the clinician on any point of concern during this process. Please feel you have as much time as you wish to reflect on the information given before agreeing to proceed with the treatment.

Purpose of Treatment

You have presented with concerns which have formed the basis of a clinical discussion and examination. The purpose of the proposed treatment is to address your concerns either individually or in combination with other modalities of treatment.

Outcomes

Your clinician will endeavour in good faith to employ the principles of best practice in delivering your treatment. Each patient is individual and response to treatment will vary from patient to patient and treatment to treatment. As such it is difficult to guarantee outcomes will always meet your expectations. 

Background Information

Botox is a purified protein of the toxin normally produced by Clostridium botulinum. Wrinkles and fine lines develop over time by the repeated contraction of facial muscles. By injecting Botox precisely in these specific muscles, the nerve impulse traveling to the muscle is blocked. This blockage prevents contraction, therefore relaxing the muscles. Typically, you will see an improvement in the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles within 2 weeks following treatment, the maximum effect being observed 5 to 6 weeks after injection. The treatment effect can be seen for up to 4 months after injection.
