IS BOTOX COSMETIC INJECTIONS SAFE?
Botox treatment injectables are made from a drug made called Botulinum Toxin which has been FDA approved and used for both medical and cosmetic purposes for over 20 years with no known adverse effects. Like most cosmetic treatments, side effects can occur, some clients report mild bruising whilst very occasionally- approximately 1-3% - experience a 'droopy eyelid' both however can be corrected or will fade in time. To reduce the risk of complications, Botox Cosmetic injectables are administered by highly qualified practitioners in a safe and medical environment.
WILL I BE ABLE TO MOVE MY FACE AFTER RECEIVING BOTOX INJECTIONS?
Of course! The ‘frozen’ look many of us associate with Botox is only caused when too much toxin is administered into one area. skin practitioners target small specific muscles that are responsible for unwanted lines and wrinkles only. This means normal facial expressions such as smiling, frowning or looking surprised will be unaffected. During your consultation our practitioner will talk you through how the treatment can be used for subtle effects so no one needs to know your secret.
HOW DOES BOTOX COSMETIC WORK?
When you concentrate, squint or frown, the muscles in your face contract. After years of frequent contraction combined with other environmental and lifestyle factors, lines and wrinkles will form and eventually become permanent. When the muscles in our face move, a message is sent from the brain via nerves to the muscles, instructing them to contract. Botox injectables are a natural protein that works by interrupting this process, leaving those muscles unable to crease the skin.
DOES BOTOX INJECTIONS REALLY PREVENT AGEING?
It has been reported that, if used regularly, Botox can delay and prevent the signs of aging. As we know facial movement such as squinting and frowning can cause lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin restricts facial muscle movement which means signs of aging can be prevented.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH BOTOX INJECTION?
Botox is mainly used for the face. Forehead wrinkles, crow's feet lines around the eyes, and the "11 lines" between the eyebrows are the most popular areas however other uses include lifting eyebrows, decreasing the "orange peel" appearance of the chin and lifting the corners of the mouth.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER BOTOX TREATMENT?
You can carry on with your day as normal immediately after leaving the clinic, although it’s important to avoid anything strenuous for 24 hours such as going to the gym. Side effects are rare, but occasionally some clients experience bruising, but this usually fades quickly.
