Wrinkles and fine lines are common consequences of ageing. Use of our facial muscles over the years causes a decrease in elasticity and for such wrinkles to appear. These creases become more permanent and prominent. Anti-wrinkle injections like Botox® are used to smooth out the lines and provide a rejuvenated and younger looking skin area. Furthermore, over the years Botox® has proved invaluable for patients who suffer from migraines as it’s muscle relaxing properties can help relax the face and reduce the onset of a migraine.
Botox® and other anti-wrinkle injections have been performed for well over 20 years and as such, we’ve gained years of experience and skill in getting our clients results. Botox® is made from purified protein that is then injected into the motor point of the muscle in order to relax it’s function and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. All of our Botox® injections are only ever administered by a highly-trained and registered Aesthetic Nurse Injector.
Patients can usually see results from Botox within just a few days. 1 Botox injection can last 3-6 months and if treatments are undertaken on a regular basis during the first few years, the patient may require fewer and fewer sessions.
There are very few side effects caused by Botox. Whilst very rare, some patients may see slight bruising around the injector area as well as a temporary drooping of the eyelid, but in these cases we would always ask you to come back to the clinic as both these issues are reversible.
As previously mentioned, Botox has been popular for over two decades and is common amongst major celebrities such as Kylie Minogue, Elizabeth Hurley and Madonna. The draw of more youthful, firmer, unwrinkled skin has natural attraction to many patients and celebrities alike.
