A non-surgical way to combat the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
As we age, our faces show the effects of time in the form of wrinkles. All the emotions we’ve ever expressed over the years – the smiles and frowns - add to our facial lines.
For many of us, the confidence we felt when we were younger is affected by the ageing that shows on our faces. An increasing number of people are choosing anti-wrinkle treatments, such as Botox, as a non-surgical skin treatment to combating the appearance of age and to boost their confidence.
Enhances Natural Beauty
One of the most significant benefits of getting Botox treatment is that it is an easy way to enhance your natural beauty. Botox is used as an anti-aging treatment, as it is an easy way to lessen the appearance of wrinkles.
Improves Many Health Conditions
Many people suffer from TMJ or other types of muscle pain, get Botox injections to help them relax these muscles. Botox injections are even used to treat chronic migraines and other chronic health issues.
Non-Invasive and Fast Procedure
The entire procedure only takes a few minutes to perform, especially when working with a professional. We will use a small needle to inject the Botox into specific areas of your face.
Nearly Immediate Results
Many people who want to improve their appearance quickly choose Botox because it provides nearly immediate results. Once you get your Botox injections, you will see results as early as three to four days after your procedure.
Something else that makes Botox a great cosmetic treatment option is that it provides long-lasting results. As was mentioned before, you can expect to see full results from your procedure within ten days of your injections.
You can also get as many or as few Botox injections as you want. This also means that you can fit your Botox treatments into your monthly budget!
Botulinum toxin is a purified protein that is injected into the skin to relax the muscles in your face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, such as crow's feet and frown lines. The effects of Botox are reversible after a period of time and as a non-permanent cosmetic treatment, re-treatment is required after a period of time. It was first used to treat squints by weakening the overactive eye muscle. Since then it has been used to treat a wide range of medical problems such as tics, facial spasm, and cerebral palsy. In the past 15 years or so has it become widely used for cosmetic treatments.
Provided you’ve had a full consultation with a medical professional and your treatment is being administered by a qualified professional (ideally a medical professional) you should have no particular problems with using Botox.
Side effects are generally minimal. You can resume normal activities straight after treatment. At most clients experience some mild swelling and bruising which subsides after a few days or so.
In some cases people have an excessive amount of Botox caused through over treatment or have Botox administered by untrained professionals using poor technique. In these cases the effects of Botox produce an unfavourable, unnatural look. To ensure that you look as natural as possible, it’s recommended that you’re treated by an experienced medical professional who takes the time to accurately assess your facial structure, how much Botox you need, or whether you even need it at all. You should also not experience any numbness or lack of skin sensitivity more than a few days after the initial treatment.
Pregnant women or breast feeding mothers Patients with certain conditions affecting the connections between nerves and muscles (such as Myaesthenia Gravis and Eaton-Lambert Syndrome) People with a previous allergic reaction to botox, or with allergies to egg or human albumin People taking aminoglycoside antibiotics (such as chlarithromycin, gentamicin etc.) Anyone with a skin infection in the area to be treated Caution should be exercised in any patients taking blood-thinning medication such as Warfarin, Rivaroxaban and Clopidogrel, simply due to the possibility of severe bruising When should I begin treatments? The sooner the better as an anti ageing preventative. However whilst there is no particular age limit, those with deeper wrinkles may benefit more from fillers as opposed to this. A full consultation with Nina will help ascertain what the most suitable course of treatment is to meet your needs.
Effects may take up to 2 weeks post treatment to fully show, though this can be sooner. Re-treatment is usually at least every 3 months, this varies from person to person ranging from 2 to 5 months on average.
