What is Anti Wrinkle Treatment?

Botox® is a purified protein extracted from Botulinum bacteria used for anti-ageing treatments. It is not animal based. Botox® is a prescription-only medication (POM) and is prescribed specifically for you. Over the years it has become popularised by celebrities as a way to keep their youthful appearance. Today, Botox® is accessible for everyone, due to its low price and the immediate effect it has.

How does it Work?

It is injected into the muscle to stop it from contracting and moving (for example, into a frown), thus preventing lines and wrinkles from appearing. It also softens existing lines, restoring a more youthful appearance to the face.

How is the Treatment Administered?

The treatment involves using very fine needles to inject the product into the relevant areas. It takes from just a few seconds to a few minutes to complete. The treatment is virtually painless and there is no recovery time required. It is very popular to get your Botox® done during the day so you are ready for socialising in the evening.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Botox® is a prescription medication and only a medically qualified licensed practitioner can prescribe and supply it. The amount of Botox® used per injection is extremely minimal. You may experience some minor side effects including slight redness or swelling that subsides within an hour, or, very rarely, bruising. There is no downtime and you can resume your daily activities immediately.

After being unhappy with the deep lines on my forehead and my crows feet I decided to book in with Dr. Lauren for anti wrinkle treatment. I am thrilled with the results. My skin looks so smooth and I look much younger. Dr.Lauren took her time explaining to me the process and listened to my concerns before she went ahead with the treatment. She was caring and put me at ease during the treatment. Can’t wait to come back to the clinic soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

The best time to consider having Botox® is when you begin to notice dynamic lines and wrinkles that only appear in movement (such as smiling or frowning). This usually happens in your mid thirties, although it varies from person to person depending on genetic and lifestyle factors such as sun exposure, stress and smoking. Botox® works best at this stage, rather than waiting and trying to treat deep lines where the collagen in the skin is already damaged and the wrinkle appears even when your muscles and face are not moving.

The longer you wait, the more invasive the treatments for wrinkles become – for example dermal fillers are used when Botox® will not suffice.

Areas that Botox® can treat include:

Frown lines – The lines that appear between the eyebrows

Crow’s feet – Wrinkles around the eyes

Forehead lines- The lines that appear when raising your eyebrows

Bunny lines – On the side of the nose when smiling

Necklines – Horizontal ‘necklace lines’ and vertical ‘platysmal bands’ 

Marionette lines- To lift upturned corners

Migraines

Enlarged jaw muscle – Due to excessive grinding

Hyperhydrosis- Excessive sweating

Botox®  can stop migraines before they even start, with treatments recommended every twelve weeks for maximum effect. This works by blocking the release of the neurotransmitters that cause pain, and stopping the muscles from contracting. This prevents tension build up which reduces migraines

Botox® can help with excessive sweating by blocking the signals that the body sends to stimulate sweat glands. It is injected into the skin, and the effects typically last 6 months.

Botox® can treat horizontal neck lines and vertical ‘platysmal bands’ in the neck with a treatment known as the Nefertiti Neck Lift, creating a tighter, lifted and youthful appearance.

Correctly injected, Botox can relax the muscles that pull up the upper lip, thus reducing the gums on show in a high lip line and even creates a slightly fuller looking lip.

DO use the muscles we have injected in the hour after treatment as research has shown this encourages a quicker uptake of the product.

DON’T

– lie down for 4 hours

– exercise for 24 hours

– rub your face for 24 hours

– have excessive alcohol on the day of the treatment.
