Botox has earned itself something of a cult following among celebrities and for really good reasons. When it comes to fighting the signs of premature ageing, these injections could well be the best tool to have in your arsenal. Botox works by relaxing the muscles in the facial area. If we prevent muscles around the common areas where fine lines and wrinkles appear, such as around the eyes or on the forehead, from working as hard we can prevent those tell-tale signs of ageing from appearing. We can even reverse ageing and smooth out those lines if we can prevent the muscles from working as hard and give the surrounding skin the time it needs to recover.
Botox is an incredibly safe treatment. Derived from a protein within the Botulinum bacteria which is chemically produced, this treatment is fully regulated and actually has other medical uses too. The injections are also completely safe and whilst there might be some feelings of discomfort, our clinicians know exactly how to deliver them in a pain-free manner. We also always apply an anaesthetic cream prior to delivery of the injections, to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. Treatments last between 15-30 minutes and you will always receive a free 30-60-minute consultation prior to commencement. This will be your opportunity to ask any questions that you might have about the procedure and our opportunity to understand exactly what look you want to achieve. This enables us to make an effective treatment plan in regard to exactly where we administer the injections.
You should always bear in mind that the results of Botox injections are not immediate. Botox will smooth out those lines and wrinkles, once the skin around the muscles that are being relaxed has had time to rest and recover. You will generally start to see results after around 10 days. Botox isn’t just for celebrities – with our cost-efficient treatments and interest-free instalment plans available if needed, treatments and smooth, younger-looking skin can be available to all.
