This anti-wrinkle treatment aims to reduce and sometimes eliminate lines on the face giving you a more youthful appearance. It is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment with very little side effects and recovery time. Botox is the trade name for a medicine called Botulinum Toxin Type A which is also available as Bocouture or Azzalure.
All facial rejuvenation is carried out by Dr Hannah Granville who has completed several facial rejuvenation courses and has been carrying out botulinum toxin injections for over 7 years.
Botulinum toxin is used to treat wrinkles that appear with movement on the face. The three main areas which are treated are horizontal lines on the forehead, crows feet and frown lines. Any of these areas can be treated independently and we will advise you in a free consultation which areas you are most likely to benefit from with anti-wrinkle treatment.
Hannah will aim for a natural appearance and a light touch treatment. This will take only a few minutes per site to complete. The treatment is relatively painless and involves very small needles to administer the botulinum toxin. You can expect mild redness and bumps in the treated area for up to 15-20 minutes post-procedure. Occasionally bruising can occur, this will fade over a number of days and can be covered up with make-up. Most patients find they can return to their normal activities straight away.
Following treatment, it can take up to 2 weeks for the botulinum toxin to reach its full effect. A two week follow up appointment will be scheduled to assess the results and a complimentary top-up can be completed if needed.
Most patients will find the effects last around 4 months, however this can vary from 4 – 6 months. This will depend on treatment area involved and will also vary from patient to patient. Some evidence suggests that with regular treatment the effects can last longer.
