What Botox Could Do For You?

Posted on 8th August 2016

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin is a natural, purified protein. It is generally referred to as ‘Botox’ as this is the most commonly known brand name. It is used to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. Alongside cosmetic treatments, it can also be used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and bruxism (tooth grinding).

What does Undergoing Botox Treatment Involve? 

Treatment involves using a fine needle to inject the Botox directly into the affected muscles. There is no real downtime associated with Botox treatment. You may encounter some mild bruising and swelling directly after treatment in the areas injected. This can easily be masked by makeup. There are no long-term side effects of having anti-wrinkle injections, and you can resume your usual activities straight away. 

Who Would This Treatment Benefit?

Botox treatment can be used for a wide range of patients and treatments. The majority of patients use Botox for facial rejuvenation and the reduction of lines and wrinkles. Most people are suitable for Botox treatment whether it is to rejuvenate your appearance or to prevent future lines and wrinkles.

Who Should Avoid Botox Treatment? 

Patients may need to avoid Botox with certain medical conditions, such as nerve damage or muscle complaints. Therefore, you should disclose this information during your consultation to avoid any complications. Botox treatment is not undergone if patients are pregnant or breastfeeding.

What Results Are Achieved? 

Botox is routinely used to soften lines and wrinkles caused by activity of the muscles of facial expression, whilst still allowing natural movement. Botox is mainly used in the upper face to treat frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet.

Results are noticed within 3-7 days and last between 3-6 months.
