Botulinum toxin (which is in fact a neurotoxic protein) has become a household name as an anti-aging treatment. As we age, fine lines and wrinkles can develop. These are due to expressive movement in the muscles under the surface of the skin. Initially, they are dynamic – only present during movement – but with time they will progress to become static lines, or wrinkles. When used on small muscles in the upper face, it smoothes out wrinkles, frown lines and crows’ feet.
Many of us in London especially lead busy lives and after a while that pressure starts to show; ever increasing numbers of people now seek these anti wrinkle injections as a way of turning back the clock and removing the signs of premature ageing. The treatment is quick and convenient and in the hands of trained specialists very safe and affordable.
What To Expect
Anti-wrinkle injections are a relatively non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment, which is less harsh than many cosmetic surgery procedures. Local anaesthetic can be applied to the areas to be treated, which means the procedure is usually painless. The toxin is administered using very fine needles; you may feel a very slight scratch as the fine needle is applied to the areas you want to target.
There is no downtime, but you may experience slight bruising at the injection site. The results can be seen in a matter of days, and take an average of two weeks to be fully apparent.
Botox is a widely available treatment; however it remains a prescription only medicine, and should only be prescribed and administered by specialists with suitable training and experience. The many unwanted side effects of botulinum toxin treatment, such as a frozen appearance, heavy eyelids or a shocked expression, are usually the result of inexperienced application so choosing an experienced practitioner is crucial.
