Botox-Anti-Wrinkle

chin-botox-300x200-150x150Botox has become a popular treatment to reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles since it was first introduced over ten years ago now. It involves injecting minute doses of the toxin Botulinum Type A into facial muscles to relax them, and prevent them forming thin lines and wrinkles caused by the muscle’s contraction, to give a fresh and youthful appearance. Botox can also be used for other conditions, including excessive sweating and migraines, as it reduces the function of the sweat glands for up to eight months.

You’ll see the optimum impact of facial botox after ten to 14 days, and the effects can last for up to six months. The Skin + Hair Clinic offers a painless, effective and safe procedure, carried out by an experienced dermatologist.

Facial lines

Depending on the condition or your skin, botox injections will help firm and smooth wrinkled skin, sagging or hollow areas. Typical complaints our clients use botox for include:

Bunny Lines

A bunny line is a horizontal wrinkle which forms across the ridge of the nose. Commonly we have more than one bunny line, which become apparent when our nose moves. Treatments for bunny lines include using a small amount of botox in the area of the lines, to help relax that muscle and reduce the wrinkles.

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are small wrinkles which appear around the eye, starting at the outer corner of the eye. They’re often caused by sun exposure and smoking, and can be softened by a small botox treatment.

Thinning Lips

One of the effects of ageing is the atrophy of facial fat, including the lips. Lip augmentation is a type of cosmetic surgery or non-surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the lips by increasing their fullness. Procedures to enlarge lips can also reduce the fine lines and wrinkles above the top lip, often referred to as ‘smoker’s lines.’

Gummy smile

Exposing of larger than average amount of gum tissue when smiling is known as a ‘gummy smile’, and may reduce your confidence to smile. Not all gummy smiles have the same cause, but treatments for a gummy smile include a short course of anti-wrinkle injections, which will significantly decrease its appearance in cases where a hyperactive muscle raises the top lip, or a thin upper lip, cause it.

Dimpled/puckered chin

As we age and our face’s movements become more ingrained on our skin, puckers and dimples can appear around the chin area. Although facial movements cause them initially, over time they become deeper, and remain visible, even when the skin is in a relaxed state. Treatments for puckered chins include an anti-wrinkle injection like Azzalure or Dysport, will help smooth and firm the skin in the area, reducing the appearance of lines and dimples.

Non-surgical face slimming

Treatments for face slimming include anti-wrinkle injections, a non-invasive, non-surgical option for reducing the width and shape of the lower face and jaw line. A series of tiny injections in the lower areas of the face firm the muscles in the area, resulting in a subtle thinning of the face.

Wrinkled neck

The wrinkles you see on your neck are a result of the skin sagging – which happens as we age and the skin loses elasticity – rather than muscle activity in the area. Anti-wrinkle injections are an effective treatment for the neck, used to improve the appearance of vertical bands of skin.

Excessive sweating

Hyperhydrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common – albeit embarrassing – disorder. Excessive perspiration in the armpit area is not only unpleasant but also unsightly, and can lead to a lack of confidence and self esteem. It affects both males and females and can start at any age. A few of injections of botox into both armpits will stop excessive sweating for around six to eight months.

Grinding and clenching teeth

Bruxism is the unconscious grinding and clenching of the teeth, and mostly takes place while we’re asleep. Botox is a safe and effective treatment for tackling it.

Migraines

Botox injections can also treat chronic migraines, and are widely used today. The muscle-paralysing injections are popular as a cosmetic treatment but – due to their nerve-blocking effect – botox also has a role in treating certain medical conditions such as migraines.

Botox

Q. Are there any side effects?

A. No, there aren’t, but you will receive strict instructions from the doctor about what you should do after your treatment. If you don’t follow them, side effects like a drooping eyebrow could occur. Botox works inside the skin for up to two weeks after the treatment, so it’s important that it doesn’t spread from the treatment area. That could be caused by other facial treatments, like dermabrasion and facials, which you can’t have for at least two weeks after botox; you can’t go to the gym, or drink alcohol immediately after your treatment either, as sweating and raising the body’s temperature could cause it to move.

Q. Can botox be used to stop me from sweating?

A. Yes, botox last for up to nine months as an effective barrier to excessive sweating. It numbs the nerve endings in the sweat glands, so they’re not stimulated to produce sweat.
