Botox – Anti Wrinkle treatments

Anti-wrinkle injection using ‘Botox’ remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the UK. It is a safe a safe and effective way to reduce lines and wrinkles. However, it is still important that anyone thinking about undergoing this treatment is fully informed. Below are some useful points to consider to help you prepare for your appointment:

1 – Choose a fully qualified and experienced practitioner

Anti-wrinkle injection (Botox) treatment is a medical procedure, make sure your treatment is carried out by a qualified practitioner. Do your research. Check their qualifications and feel free to ask to see examples of their work and patient testimonials. At Infinity Skin Clinic, you can arrange a free, no obligation consultation to discuss the appropriate treatment for you and what the procedure involves.

2 – Understand any risks

As with any prescription medicine, there are of course potential risks and side effects. ‘Botox’ is very safe and well tested so any complications are rare, nonetheless it is important that you understand the risks and make an informed decision about the procedure. Using a highly medically qualified professional helps minimise these risks.

3 – Be realistic

It is unrealistic to expect to leave the surgery with a completely smooth, wrinkle-free complexion or looking like your favourite celebrity. Nor would this create the natural looking results we are aiming to achieve.

Anti-wrinkle injections reduce the lines and wrinkles that develop during the movement of muscles of facial expression. You will still look like you, just with smoother and more youthful glowing skin! Many of my patients report to me that the main feedback they get from their friends and family is ‘you look well have you been on holiday?’. This is the benefit of a comprehensive consultation with a medical professional. Ensure you discussed what you hope to achieve with your treatment to assess if anti-wrinkle treatments are the right procedure for you.

4 – Less is often more

I believe if it is obvious to people you have had ‘Botox’, then we have defeated the object of your treatment. We want you to look a younger, fresher version of yourself, whilst retaining natural movement and appearance. By injecting small amounts of ‘Botox’ in the correct areas, we can keep results as natural as possible to avoid a ‘frozen’ face. By keeping results natural, we can give you back your confidence and help you look as young as you feel.
