Anti-wrinkle injections (commonly called Botox )are a highly popular method of softening facial expression lines and making the face look refreshed.
The treatment works by relaxing the tiny facial muscles which create expression lines. This means the muscles no longer contract so the overlying skin stays smooth and crease-free. The result is a fresh and softer look.
The procedure is simple and straightforward. The injection is injected using a very fine needle in very precise locations on the face. After around two or three days the effects are seen with the full benefits becoming visible up to 14 days after treatment. The results last for 3 to 4 months before repeat treatments are required.
All our wrinkle softening injections use only UK licensed toxins and are administered by a highly experienced dental practitioner.We never use cheaper or unlicensed materials that may be available elsewhere.
Smoother skin is just one of the benefits of anti-wrinkle injections. The treatment can also be used where excess sweating is a problem. In these cases, anti-wrinkle injection works to block the nerves to the sweat glands and keep the skin drier and fresher.
How Does "Botox" Work?
Botox works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the injected
muscles. The muscles can no longer contract strongly, which causes the
wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines,
laughter lines(crows feet) and frown lines.This is always non-permanent.
How Is the Procedure Performed?
Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only
minor discomfort. It generally takes between two to fourteen days to
take full effect .
How Long Does a Botox Injection Last?
The effects of Botox usually last between three to four months. As
muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to
re-appear and wrinkles might need to be re-treated. The lines and
wrinkles usually appear less severe with time because the muscles are
being trained to relax.Subsequent treatments may last longer as the muscles are being trained to relax
What Are the Side Effects of Botox?
Some people may experience temporary bruising ( we recommend the use of Arnica to lessen any potential bruising). Occasionally headaches, which
resolve in 24-48 hours, can occur, but this is rare. Rarely, patients
may develop eyelid drooping. This usually resolves in three to four
weeks. This development is usually caused by migration of the Botox and
for this reason, you shouldn’t rub the treated area for 12 hours after
injection or lay down for three to four hours. There have been no
allergies associated with Botox to date.
