A safe, effective treatment for lines and wrinkles
The thought of Botox® can sound scary, with images of large needles and overdone celebrities coming to mind. However it is far more common than you’d think and is the most common non-surgical anti-ageing treatment globally.
Botox® is a purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles, temporarily softening facial lines, creating a refreshed, youthful look.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is it suitable for me?
Botox® is suitable for most people to reduce lines and wrinkles. There is no ideal age to start, although treatments are more effective on less developed lines.
What happens at the appointment?
Our qualified nurses are highly experienced and deliver the injections quickly and safely, and with no downtime required you're free to return to your day as soon as the treatment is finished.
How does it work?
Our facial expressions – laughing, smiling, frowning - are produced by the movement of muscles underneath the skin. Over time, these muscle contractions lead to wrinkles and 'grooves' forming in the skin. As we age and our collagen and elastin production slows down, these lines become more pronounced.
Anti-wrinkle injections made from a purified protein are applied under the skin, temporarily reducing the action of the targeted muscles and preventing them from moving. As a result, lines and wrinkles in the skin are softened, giving you a younger, fresher-looking appearance.
Who performs the treatment?
At Caci, our appearance medicine treatments are only performed by qualified and highly trained Registered Nurses, so you can rest assured you're in safe hands.
When will I see results and how long do they last?
Results can take a few days to become visible, and the effects of the anti-wrinkle treatment generally last up to three or four months. We'll check in with after the treatment to ensure you're still satisfied with the results.
Does it hurt?
The injection process is quick and the needles are small and fine, so the treatment hardly hurts at all. You'll likely feel a pinprick, but most clients describe the treatment as being a bit uncomfortable rather than painful.
You may experience some minor side effects such as slight redness, but this goes away on its own within 15-20 minutes. Some clients also experience bruising or a minor headache, which is normal, but these are easily alleviated with your normal pain relief medication.
Are there any side effects?
This anti-ageing treatment is simple and has little to minor side effects. After the treatment, you may experience slight redness in the treated areas, this should go away within 15-20 minutes. Some people also experience a minor headache and bruising.
How much does it cost?
Costs vary depending on the area being treated and these will be discussed at a free consultation. At Caci, we aim to make Botox® affordable, so we’ve developed a Botox® treatment plan called Amerase, with affordable payment plan options to suit your budget, so you can pay off your treatments weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
