Treatment with Botox is a highly popular method of softening facial expression lines and making the face look refreshed. Every time we frown, squint or smile the skin is creased in the areas of greatest use. The more expressive you are the deeper the lines become. As we age, collagen production slows down and the problem accelerates as we are less able to repair the damage.
The treatment works by relaxing the tiny facial muscles that create expression lines. This means the muscles no longer contract so the overlying skin stays smooth and crease free causing any lines to soften and fade away. The result is a more serene and youthful look.
Botox has been used for numerous medical conditions since the 1970’s. The cosmetic benefits were discovered in 1990 and it has been used effectively and safely worldwide ever since.
The procedure is simple and straightforward. The treatment involves injecting very small doses of the Botox into the appropriate areas. Normal activity can be resumed immediately after the procedure. After two to three days, the effects can be seen with full benefits becoming visible up to seven days after treatment. The results last for around three to six months before repeat treatments are required.
The injections are relatively painless and administered expertly by our fully qualified practitioner in safe clinical surroundings.
No serious side effects have ever been reported when using the wrinkle reduction treatments for cosmetic reasons. Immediately after the injection there may be mild swelling and redness which subsides within a few days. Bruising at the injection site may occur, this can be covered with make-up if needed.
The three facial zones that can be treated are frown lines, lines on the forehead and lines on the sides of the eyes often called “crows feet or smile lines.”
