Many of us admit to feeling a little apprehensive when it comes to the ageing process and Botox is an effective way of rolling back the years and making you look and feel younger. With Botox, lines and wrinkles become a thing of the past and you can look forward to bright, smooth and youthful looking skin.
What is Botox?
Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which reduces the visibility of facial lines by preventing muscle contraction in the facial muscles. The treatment works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles and this produces a temporary result. Botox is injected into specified areas of the skin to tackle lines and wrinkles and make the skin look smoother and firmer.
Many people have reservations about having facial surgery because it carries risks and often involves lengthy recovery time; Botox is a non-invasive alternative, which enables patients to enjoy younger looking skin without the risks of surgery.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is used in extremely small quantities and is regarded as a safe and effective anti-ageing remedy when provided by a trained professional. We have many years of experience in facial aesthetic treatment and use our expertise to produce natural looking results with minimal pain.
The results of Botox treatment
If you have Botox, you can expect your complexion to look more radiant and the visibility of lines and facial folds will be reduced significantly. The results last for up to 6 months and it is then up to the individual whether they would like to arrange repeat treatments.
Botox treatment usually takes just 15-30 minutes and the procedure is very straightforward; a fine needle is used to inject the Botox into the chosen areas of the skin and the effects become noticeable shortly after.
