What is Botox?
Botulinum Type A is derived from a purified bacterium. In medicine, it is injected directly into hyperactive muscles to temporarily reduce their activity by blocking muscle signals.
What areas do you treat?
Commonly treated areas are frown lines between the eye-brows, ‘Crows- feet’ or laughter lines around the eyes and Forehead lines. Some brow asymmetries can be corrected and also in selected cases you can achieve a great ‘lift’ around the eyes, which many female clients love! It can even make it easier to put your eye make-up on if you previously felt your eyes were a ‘hooded’.
What does treatment involve?
It is a straight-forward procedure. Very fine needles are used to gentle inject tiny amounts into specific muscles. You can even visit in your lunchtime. You will usually see results in 3-10 days and effectively smoother, reduced lines, depending on your initial appearance. The over-all effect is very natural and as subtle as you wish.
You will be invited to return about a week after your treatment for a complimentary review to ensure you are happy with the benefits of treatment.
Can anyone have the treatment?
There are some medical contra-indications, which include Pregnancy/ Breast-feeding, Bleeding Disorders or Anti-coagulants, general disorders of muscle activity and certain medications eg Aminoglycoside antibiotics. A medical history will be discussed in confidential prior to treatment for your safe treatment.
How long does it last?
Treatment time generally lasts up to 4 months. Re-treatment is then required. Some patients are happy to leave longer between treatment, eg 6-9 months. Should you not continue with further treatment, the effect will gradually fade as it is a reversible treatment.
