Botox anti wrinkle treatment:
Botox® treatments for men and women in North Devon
During our lifetimes the repeated contraction of muscles causes creasing of the skin, as we age our skin becomes less elastic and the creases no longer disappear. This causes wrinkles in well known areas of the face. By relaxing these muscles with well known muscle relaxants, such as Botox® you can soften existing lines as well as prevent future wrinkles from forming.
Botox® causes muscles to relax and in turn softens the lines (or wrinkles) on our face giving us a younger fresher look. It relaxes only the muscles directly injected and the other muscles continue to function as normal. The treatment lasts for 4 – 6 months and combined with other treatments, like dermal fillers, can give a long lasting facial freshness.
By decreasing the initially formation of lines, Botox® also works as a preventer which over time can give impressive results if used routinely.
Botox® is given after a face to face consultation, during which time we discuss your desired results. Then we agree on a treatment method and either on the day itself or at a time in the future treatment is given.
A careful examination of your face with photographs is done as well as detailed medical history. In a relaxing and serene environment you lay back and following a facial cleansing and marking the Botox® is injected into the agreed areas. The use of a very fine needle gives most patients a pain free experience.
There is normally no bruising, although it may happen. For around 3 – 4 hours following the injections you are advised not to rub your face or partake in any strenuous exercise. You are also advised to stay upright for a similar amount of time.
Side effects of Botox® are rare but the medication can occasionally diffuse into the surrounding muscles which can cause short term issues of a few weeks, such as drooping of the upper eyelid
You should notice the effects of Botox® within 1 – 2 weeks and a follow up appointment is routinely advised following your first injection.
Botox® has been in use for over 30 years and used by experienced and trained medical professionals is very safe.
