What is Botox®?
The power to slow down the ageing process!
The repeated use of facial muscles throughout our lifetime causes the skin to become creased in areas of greatest use and you may start to notice the appearance of fine lines under the eyes, crow’s feet, and wrinkles on the forehead. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin slows down and these areas of overuse become damaged, and the lines become permanent. Botox® treatment reduces the movement of muscles in these areas, preventing the skin becoming creased allowing the area to recover resulting in deep lines being softened and even helping soft lines to fade away in some instances.
Botox® injections are utilised to soften the appearance of deep and dynamic lines and sometimes erase fine lines all together. The injections cause interfering of communication between the nerve impulse and the muscle. Small quantities are injected directly into the muscle which can make the final result look natural therefore making the treatment very safe and effective.
Botox® is a neurotoxin, which blocks the release of acetylcholine, and when injected accurately into the muscle, it interferes with the signal, which prevents the muscle from fully contracting.
Botox® at MY Eye Clinic
Helping you achieve a well-rested, youthful look.
Botox® is a safe procedure used for anti-ageing. Treatments are hugely popular due to their efficacy and the natural results achieved. The injections, which are purified and used in very small quantities, are directly injected into the muscle. It cannot produce any permanent damage or travel within the body.
Prior to treatment, you will attend an Initial Assessment with one of our Facial Aesthetic Clinicians. Here we will discuss with you in detail your medical history, concerns and desired result and go through consent to treatment, ensuring you are a safe and suitable candidate for Botox® treatment.
On average, the results from treatment tend to last 3 – 4 months although some patients may experience results that last a little shorter or longer than this time.
If this is your first treatment with us, we will always ask to see you in clinic again 2 – 3 weeks following treatment to ensure we have achieved the desired results from your treatment.
A combination of Botox®, Dermal Fillers and prescription skin care can provide the best results to facial anti-ageing.
