I’m having a Botox party!
Growing numbers of women – and even some men – are lining up alongside celebrities to get the latest anti-wrinkle treatment, the Botox injection.
The Botox party night has become a growing trend for the cosmetic generation.
At $8 per unit Botox injection doesn’t come cheap but has become one of the most popular procedures because it involves no surgery and can act as an instant facelift.
Doctors discovered that the injection – a minute, purified form of the botulism bacteria which has been used for a range of medical conditions – can also improve your looks. It works by weakening muscles that create wrinkles and frowns – leaving you looking fresher and y
The injection is a prescription only medication and so can only be administered by a qualified doctor or surgeon, GP or nurse practitioner.
Dr Alexander Ha, a qualified GP, has joined with Cosmetic Holidays International to carries out group treatments at informal Botox party nights.
This is based upon this trend re-surfacing again, and women (and men) like to grab a group of their friends as in a social occasion, and have our Representative as well as an experienced Australian Board Accredited AHPRA (Medical Board) Doctor who performs the procedure.
We offer Botox( Xeomin) and Fillers (Princess) for unbeatable prices:

Dr Mike, as he has become known on the Botox circuit, creates a home made surgery in the kitchen of the party host, positioning his lights and syringes.
‘It is all done properly and professionally,’ with a home-type surgery situation with good lighting and syringes.
Consent forms are signed and I will only do gatherings of between 3-5 usually and alcohol is not advised as it causing post-op bruising.
Dr. Ha explains the ins and outs of the treatment because we all don’t want to treat women who have been pushed into it by peer pressure, however the environment works very well because some patients like to be treated in the more relaxing and informal environment of their home with their friends on hand to give them support.
Cosmetic Holidays International works with Dr Ha., as he is only one of a handful of Australian doctors who would offer a travelling Botox service.
Botox parties makes Australian women sound like they are very evolved on the subject of cosmetic enhancement.
‘Most women don’t come clean about how much Botox they have or where
they have it, which isn’t going to change anytime soon.’
Botox is the fastest growing non-cosmetic surgery procedure in the world. It has been quite phenomenal. I am a great advocate of it because it makes you feel so much better and can save you going through surgery – it’s so natural.
‘Everyone we have known has always been very happy with the results. We LOVE Botox, it is brilliant. A lot of men who are working in stressful jobs are also increasingly having Botox injections because they want to stay young and fresh. It takes away the frown lines which tend to show in your mid 20s.
Here is our guide to Botox and how it works
What is Botox?
Botox is the trade name of Botulinum toxin type and is a purified toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinium. It paralyses the muscle into which it is injected so that frowning becomes impossible. To be most effective, treatments must be carried out every three or four months in the first year. After that time, you may have lost the habit of frowning altogether.
Botulinum toxin has been used very safely and successfully since 1982 by ophthalmologists to treat nervous twitching of the eyelid and lazy eye. Thousands of patients receive Botox for a variety of other conditions including excessive sweating, but over the last 10 years it has become popular for reversing the visible signs of ageing.
Does it hurt?
When Botox is injected there is an initial minor sting for a few seconds. Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort. No sedation or local anaesthesia is required and you can resume normal activities immediately.
How does it work?
When Botox is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from
reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle weakens. As the muscle weakens,
the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkle in the skin gradually softens
and often disappears.
What areas can be treated?
It is most commonly performed in the upper face to improve the appearance of forehead lines, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet or laughter lines.
How long does it last?
The full effects of Botox treatment are not apparent for three to seven days and should last for three to six months. A top-up injection is required after this period to maintain the skin smoothing effects.
Our brand Xeomin has quicker effects, within 24hours.
There are very few side effects. This is mainly because it is used in extremely small amounts and does not spread throughout the body. However it can cause temporary bruising, a rash or mild headache.
In some cases, the toxin can migrate and cause a temporary weakness of nearby muscles. In rare cases, there can be drooping of an eyelid but this is mainly as a result of the Botox being wrongly injected. Patients who are pregnant or have a neurologic disease should not use it.
