Would you like to reduce mild to moderate wrinkles on your face such as crow’s feet or worry lines? Perhaps you are keen to help prevent the development of wrinkles in the future?

If so, then Botox could offer you a comfortable and safe way to reduce these lines helping to give a smoother, fresher and more youthful appearance.

Most commonly used on the upper areas of the face, Botox gives effective results within just a few days of treatment with results lasting for several months. You will need to repeat treatment at regular intervals for best results.

Specific wrinkles can be targeted giving natural looking results with a minimal effect on the rest of your face.

Botox in the prevention of wrinkles

 Many facial aesthetic surgeons now advocate the use of Botox as a preventative treatment for wrinkles. Particularly if your skin is more likely to suffer from premature ageing- perhaps as a result of sun damage, smoking or genetics.

Rather than waiting for the development of wrinkles in the skin, administering Botox early can help by targeting particular muscles over time- causing them to paralyze completely so that they no longer wrinkle.

Likewise, when ‘muscle memory’ is erased the development of wrinkles does not happen because muscle are simply not used in the first place.

What is Botox?

Also known as botulinum toxin, Botox is a cosmetic aesthetic medicine which is used to temporarily relax specific muscles. It is very popular and now regularly used in both female and male patients.

By injecting very tiny amounts of Botox with a fine needle, specific muscles can be targeted helping to prevent creasing of the skin where required.

Botox is commonly used on the upper parts of the face and is particularly effective on those dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive movement such as laughter lines or wrinkles around the mouth caused by smoking.

Does Botox hurt?

The needles used in the administering of Botox are very fine and an anesthetic will be applied to your face prior to injecting to help numb the area.  You may feel a slight tingling sensation on application but otherwise no it shouldn’t be painful.

Following the procedure you may notice some redness or soreness but this should disappear quickly.

Botox is a very safe and quick procedure offering maximum convenience for patients. Treatment takes between 10 and 20 minutes and requires no downtime- meaning you are able to carry on with your day straight away.
