Botox in Marlow
What exactly is this treatment?
Wrinkle relaxing injections are an effective solution for reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. This treatment can be combined with dermal fillers which plump and smooth deep lines and wrinkles.
Lines and wrinkles on the face show character and expression. However, as the skin ages, certain lines such as the crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines between the eyebrows become undesirable. They can make people look significantly older than their years – or even appear constantly tired or angry.
Why should I have this treatment?
If you want to delay or disguise visible signs of aging, wrinkle relaxing injections are a great way to achieve this. It is possible to adjust the treatment very precisely according to the look you wish to achieve. The ideal result softens and smoothes lines, leaving some natural expression and movement in the treated area.
Commonly known as Botox® or Bocouture®, wrinkle relaxing injections are so effective that around 90% of people who try them decide to have more treatments once the effects begin to wear off.
How do I know if this treatment is safe and right for me?
Although these wrinkle relaxing injections are generally low-risk with very few side effects, we take the safety of our clients extremely seriously. Therefore, the first step for anyone wishing to receive wrinkle relaxing injections is to have a full consultation with Clare, our Nurse Prescriber at our clinic in Marlow.
If Clare agrees that you are a suitable candidate for Botox® or Bocouture® injections, a tiny amount of Botulinum Toxin will be administered to the agreed area. Clare uses a disposable syringe with a very fine needle and most people report the treatment as being virtually pain-free.
How does this treatment work?
The toxin is injected into the facial muscles and the process takes around 30 minutes to complete. The Botulinum Toxin takes a few days to freeze your muscles and the results are usually noticeable between two and five days after treatment but can take up to two weeks for the final look to be achieved. Botulinum Toxin is gradually removed naturally by your body and usually the treatment will need to be repeated every three to six months.
What is Botox® and Bocouture®?
Botox® and Bocouture® are brand names for a form of Botulinum Type A, which is produced by the bacteria clostridium Botulinum.
This purified protein has been used widely in aesthetics since the 1980’s. By blocking the signals between the nerves and the muscle, muscle contraction is reduced. This means that fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed and the aging process is temporarily halted.
What else can Botox® and Bocouture® wrinkle relaxing injections be used for?
Botox® or Bocouture® wrinkle relaxing injections can be successfully used to reduce excessive sweating.
