The Most Common Questions I get asked about Anti-wrinkle Injections………

What is Botox?

Botox is a brand of Botulinum Toxin type A (there are other brands) and when injected, temporarily stops the movement of the muscles. In the upper face, this prevents resting lines around the forehead, eyes and between the eyebrows (the 11 lines). This gives the overlying facial skin a softer, smoother and more youthful appearance. Patients love the noticeable, fast results.

What’s the difference between Botox and fillers?

Botox and dermal fillers can both be used to rejuvenate the skin, but, in fact, they work in different ways. Botox is a prescription only medicine, which relaxes the muscles, reducing movement which minimises lines. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are also injectable treatments, but they work by plumping up lines to smooth them out. Fillers are also used for enhancing features such as the nose, jawline and lips.

When should I start getting Botox?

People often start getting Botox from their 30s+, when dynamic fine lines and wrinkles are more visible. This prevents the skin from folding and creasing, giving a younger look. Some people get Botox from their mid-20s as a preventative measure - minimising lines before they have a chance to form. But it’s always best to speak to a medically qualified practitioner, have a thorough consultation, to see what treatment they recommend for you.

Will I look like I have had Botox?

Receiving too much Botox in the wrong places, can make your face look “frozen” or expressionless. I can assure you that I am skilled in making you look just like your normal self--just noticeably more youthful and refreshed! It is all about the correct placement and amount of Botox. Everyone is different. Remember Botox is a safe treatment that gives amazing results, but you should always see a prescriber to ensure an authentic product is being used. See you in clinic Laura x
