Beauté Totale in The Hague is the perfect place for you to go to for botox treatments, which are naturally accompanied with the quality and service you are used to from us.
Feel free to stop by at our establishment in The Hague and we will tell you what your options are for a relaxed look with the help of a botox treatment.
What is a botox treatment?
Almost everyone knows the word ‘botox’. And yet, not everyone knows exactly what a botox treatment is.
Botox is a purified form of Botuline Toxine – a protein that is produced by the baterium Clostridium botulinum. This protein ensures for a reduction in activity of the muscles.
Botox has been used for over decades to make fine lines (such as laugh lines, frown lines,…) fade or disappear. With the help of a botox treatment, the face will regain a relaxed and youthful look.
How does it work?
When botox is applied for cosmetic reasons, botox is best to be injected. Using a thin needle, botox is injected under the skin, into the muscle. Because botox influences muscle activity, the treatment is effective against deeper wrinkles in the long term.
Anethesia is not necessary during a botox treatment; the injections last only briefly and feel like a slight sting.
What is a botox treatment suitable for?
At Beauté Totale in The Hague, you can choose a botox treatment for:
- Frown Wrinkles (between the eyes)
- Crow’s feet (those fine lines next to the eyes)
- Brow Lift
- Bunny lines (laugh lines on the nose)
- Gummy smile (gum visible during laughter)
- Excessive sweating
- Dimples in chin
Botox against excessive sweating
You might not think of it immediately, but botox (botox dry) is often used to combat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). When you sweat more than necessary to regulate your body temperature, you can come to us for a safe, effective treatment against excessive sweating.
During this treatment, botox is injected to block the nerve endings, causing the sweating to decrease. You will be able to enjoy this effect for up to twelve months. Of course, when this time period has passed you can come back to us in The Hague for a repeat treatment.
You will notice a difference after just a few days.
Botox as medical application
You might not know it is possible, but migraine, also known as tension headaches, can be treated with the help of botox. Rather than an improved skin, this medical application has an impact on your well being.
When botox is injected into the muscles in the head, the tension will decrease and the migraine will disappear.
Safety is Beauté Totale’s first and foremost priority.
For decades, people have been undergoing botox treatments without nasty side effects. This is possible because botulinum toxin has already been thoroughly researched and tested before it was released to the market. Moreover, the dosage is so low that we can easily assume that the chance for side effects is very small. And although an allergic reaction to the substance is not inconceivable, it almost never happens. Not even 1% of the people have antibodies against botox, so that they experience little to no effect.
How is the treatment done?
A botox treatment lasts about 10 minutes. The result will then be visible within just a few days.

While preparing for your first treatment you will speak to your doctor about your wishes. Of course this consultation is free and without obligation. The doctor will listen to your wishes and based on them, he will give you advice about what is the best treatment for you and what you can expect. Should there be an alternative method available for your problem, this will of course be said.
When you decide to opt for treatment, you will need to fill out a health certificate in order to evaluate whether you qualify. Rest assured, though – this is usually the case. However, people who use certain medications and pregnant women might not qualify.
If you are coming for a treatment against excessive sweating of the armpits, you will be asked to shave your armpits before the treatment.
When you have taken place, the doctor will start by marking the injection sites. This happens based on the muscle activity which cause the wrinkles or the area of the sweat production.
Using a sterile, very fine needle, the botox is injected into the muscle, or in case of a treatment against excessive sweating, superficially into the skin. There will be no anesthesia for the treatment, as it only feels like a slight sting.
Photos will be taken before the treatment, which will be used to evaluate the progress.
After the treatment
After the treatment, there are a number of guidelines you must follow. Beauté Totale will give you a so called ‘after treatment protocol’, which you can take home.
It may happen that the skin is still slightly red or swollen until 30 minutes after the treatment, but you can immediately go home and continue your daily activities. Makeup can be applied after a couple of hours.
To ensure that the botox adheres to the muscle well and thereby optimizing the operation, you are asked to tighten the muscle a lot for at least three hours after the treatment, to not massage the treated area or to bend over, lie down or exercise.
Should a bruise occur, it is advisable to avoid sun for the time being.
The skin will recover within just a few days. You will see that the wrinkles have become less visible or even completely disappeared. An optimal effect is seen in about 14 days.
When you come back to Beauté Totale in The Hague for a checkup, photos will be taken again to assess the current result.
For a lasting effect, it is advisable to repeat the treatment after three to four months. For a stronger effect, the treatment can be repeated before the wrinkles have regained their original depth. In that case, the result will last for at least six months.
When you have undergone a botox dry treatment, you will notice after two weeks that no more sweat production occurs within the treated area. You will be able to enjoy this effect from six to up to nine months.
