SOFTEN FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
As we age, the skin loses its natural elasticity, leading to the eventual formation of wrinkles, fine lines and folds. Botox® is an anti-wrinkle treatment that reduces the appearance of these lines by temporarily relaxing some of the facial muscles that cause creasing and wrinkles.
The most common areas for treatment with Botox® are the outer corners of the eyes, frown lines and forehead lines. The most appropriate time to consider having Botox® is when dynamic wrinkles (i.e. those that are emphasised when pulling a facial expression) do not fully disappear when the face is at rest. Botox® is a versatile treatment that can also be used to treat conditions such as excessive under-arm sweating.
Botox® remains one of the most effective affordable and safe non-surgical, anti-ageing treatments available. If you’re concerned about the signs of ageing, contact Beauty by Carole and take the first step towards your personalised treatment plan to rejuvenate your skin.
Your free, no-obligation consultation provides the opportunity to share your goals and concerns with Carole and to ask any questions you may have. Carole will go through a brief medical history with you, explain the procedure in detail and create your individual treatment plan.
Carole will make a series of small injections into targeted muscles on your face using a very fine needle. The procedure is relatively pain-free, save for the mild scratch experienced due to the small injections. The treatment itself typically lasts around 20-30 minutes.
Following the treatment, Carole will discuss an aftercare plan with you. You should not apply excessive pressure to the treated areas or undertake strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours. A follow-up appointment or telephone call (if preferred) will be arranged to assess the results of your treatment and answer any follow-up questions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
about anti-wrinkle injections
There is no downtime from anti-wrinkle injections and any soreness or redness should subside quickly. You should avoid applying pressure to the treated areas, strenuous exercise, alcohol and exposure to extreme heat for a couple of days following the treatment, to help maximise the effect of the procedure and minimize any bruising.
Anti-wrinkle injections are most commonly used to treat the outer corners of the eyes, frown lines and forehead lines, but can also be used for a variety of other purposes, including the treatment of excessive under-arm sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Results can be seen quickly – but it can take between 2 and 4 weeks for you to see the full effects of treatment. The time taken for results to show and overall result achieved will depend on your individual requirements. Similarly, the duration of the results will vary between individuals, but can typically last between 3 and 4 months.
Anti-wrinkle injections have been widely and safely used in aesthetics for around 30 years and complications are uncommon. A full discussion of the potential risks is, however, carried out at consultation before any treatment is undertaken. Although the treatment is not entirely pain-free, any discomfort is usually minimal.
