Who can have Botox treatments?
You are suitable for Botox if you are experiencing fine lines and wrinkles in expressive areas of your face, regardless of your age. This treatment is suitable for anyone seeking to smooth these lines, and it can be used to prevent fine lines from developing as well as treating those that are already present.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is a very safe treatment when performed by a medical professional. The treatment itself uses a prescription-only medically regulated toxin, so it can only be administered by a qualified medical professional such as Independent Nurse Prescriber, Rebecca Taylor.
Which areas can be treated with Botox?
Botox is capable of treating frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet at the corner of your eyes. It has also been developed into use for a ‘gummy smile’, stopping the smile muscles from pulling the upper lip too far up your gum line, and for relaxing the muscles in the neck to produce a slimming effect. This is known as the Nefertiti lift.
Are there any side effects?
There are some minor side effects associated with Botox treatment, but they are natural and should recede after a few days. You may experience some bruising, redness, and itchiness at the injection sites, as well as some flu-like symptoms such as headaches, fatigue and dizziness. Most people find they can return to work without any downtime, and these side effects should subside within 2-3 days post-treatment.
When will I see my results?
Your results could take up to 2 weeks to develop, though some clients see theirs within as little as 2-3 days. After 2 weeks, we will arrange a follow-up appointment with you to ensure you are satisfied with your results.
How long will my results last?
The duration of results varies between individuals, but you can typically expect your results to last for 3-4 months. After this time, you will require another treatment if you wish to maintain them.
