Botulinum toxin type A, more commonly known as Botox, is a facial injection which relaxes the facial muscles, smoothing out wrinkles or crease lines to create a more youthful look. This can include all areas of the face such as the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet) and the glabella (frown lines), and also bunny lines at the bridge of your nose.
These types of procedures have grown increasingly popular over the last 10 years to reduce facial lines and wrinkles with the most common procedure being on the forehead (frown lines).
How long does it last?
Cosmetic injections have a short-term impact, lasting 3 to 4 months before needing to be re-treated. The more botulinum procedures you have, the more your face muscles react and ‘heal’ which results in less wrinkles over time.
Is the treatment safe?
This treatment has been used safely for over 40 years in a range of medical conditions, including cerebral palsy. Like most medical procedures, there are some potential risks to be aware of although they are rare, during our consultation we will discuss and contraindications with you.
Why choose BOTOX ® injections?
The injections help to reduce facial movement allowing the lines in the face time to ‘heal’. This can help to create a more youthful look which can increase self-esteem, helping an individual to feel more confident day to day. Although we focus primarily on non-surgical cosmetic facial rejuvenation, this treatment can help more than just signs of ageing in the face but also functional factors such as lifestyle and environment.
This treatment is most commonly used for the purpose of cosmetic producers such as to:
- Reduce facial wrinkles
- Smooth skin
- Eliminate fine lines
- Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet
- Reduce forehead frown lines
- Combat the facial symptoms associated with ageing
- Boost self confidence
- Give yourself a younger and more symmetrical appearance
- Reduce eyebrow lines and lift eyebrows
- To enhance face shape through facial contour
These kinds of injections are popular mainly because of their quick and effective responses. The results of the injections can take 5-7 days to be seen and over the following months results can become even more apparent.
Due to this treatment taking up to seven days to show results. It’s important to not rub the treated area. This means no beauty facial treatments, no power showers to the face or vigorous exercise where you might need to wipe away perspiration. This is important in allowing the botulinum to remain at the injection site and not to be accidentally moved to another area i.e. the eyes.
