Botox is a leading anti-ageing treatment that helps to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. It is used to rapidly treat the following problems:
- Unwanted wrinkles on your forehead (frown lines)
- Unwanted wrinkles at the sides of your eyes (crow’s feet)
- Unwanted wrinkles between your eyes
- Excessive sweating
One 10 minute treatment, a few tiny injections, and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in those persistent frown lines, helping you achieve a healthier, more youthful appearance that will make you feel more confident and radiant than ever before.
How does Botox work?
The treatment works by weakening the muscles in your face that cause the wrinkles to appear. In the case of excessive sweating, it works by stopping your sweat gland from working. Botox is an entirely safe treatment and has been used by millions all over the world.
Botox injections use a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A to reduce the activity of the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear over time. They reduce the muscle contractions temporarily by blocking the transition of nerve impulses to the injected muscles, meaning that lines won’t appear and your skin will look and feel youthfully smooth. As we use very fine needles, the Botox procedure is virtually pain-free and after a simple 10 minute session you will be able to get on with your daily life without down-time.
What can I expect the results of Botox to look like?
Botox will be targeted at areas specifically highlighted by you, so it will only work on the muscles that cause wrinkles, leaving other facial muscles untouched. This means the results will be very natural and smooth, with no hints at all that you’ve even had Botox!
The effect of treatment lasts up to six months and is repeated at intervals to maintain the desired result. Botox treatments are often used in conjunction with dermal filler treatments to rejuvenate the face and give your skin and your confidence a well-deserved boost.
Are there any side effects?
Botox has an impeccable safety record and has been used by thousands of people across the globe with no serious side effects. The same can be said for Botox procedures targeting the sweat glands to reduce excessive sweating.
