Botox is one of the most frequently requested procedures to reduce the signs of ageing. It is a natural, purified protein that is injected precisely into over-active facial muscles to reduce dynamic wrinkle formation. Careful injection will produce a very natural look, and delay the development of static wrinkles, which will form after decades of continuous muscle activity. This means that Botox can be used for the prevention as well as treatment of wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear only with facial expression, and disappear once that facial movement stops. With time, the lines becomes fixed and get deeper and deeper. These are then called static wrinkles. The best time to use Botox is therefore before the dynamic wrinkles become static. The first signs of a light crease that doesn’t go away should be a strong indication of the need for treatment. Static wrinkles do not go away with Botox alone. Additional treatments will be needed to either stimulate new collagen production (such as radiofrequency or chemical peels) or add volume if the wrinkles and creases are very deep (injection of filler).
Deep and persistent facial lines can make a person look older than their real age. Hence the popularity of Botox as a simple cosmetic procedure that can truly make you look younger and prevent line formation. Visit the official Botox website to see how patients respond to this treatment. Their before & after photo gallery will demonstrate how the wrinkles respond to the Botox treatment.
Botox is the top cosmetic procedure performed in the USA.
This fact alone is testament to the safety of the treatment. Most people who fall in love with their line-free faces will happily repeat the procedure every 3-4 monthly, as that is the duration the treatment lasts for.
The effects of Botox for wrinkle reduction takes 3-5 days before being visible. Top-ups may be needed at review a week after the initial treatment. This ensures that a natural look is obtained from the treatment. We aim to avoid the frozen expression-less look that can be seen with aggressive Botox administration. Our charges are by the area, inclusive of top-ups as required at review one week after the initial treatment.
