Skincare Focus: Botox!


Botox is a revolutionary product for skin that has seemed to become more and more popular over the years so I thought now was the time to really look in to what it has to offer. I have been so tempted by it however have not taken the plunge yet. It is definitely something I am interested in for the future so I thought now would be a great time to deepen my understanding. It was first introduced as a treatment for smoothing out the wrinkles on the face and neck. Botox is deemed to be a fantastic treatment on several counts, not least because it only takes a brief period of time to inject but also doesn’t require any downtime afterwards. 

As with all procedures, though, you’ll only know whether Botox is truly right for you after consultation with an expert in cosmetic surgery. Botox isn't suitable for all skincare concerns and mainly targets wrinkles and areas of movement. If you are looking for something a little more drastic like a neck lift or a face lift sometimes other options need be explored like fillers or even surgery.

There are a lot of different options when it comes to creating a more youthful appearance, and this is why we recommend discussing all of your options during the consultation process so that you can be sure you end up with the right treatment for your needs specifically. 

Botox Basics 

When you visit a Botox clinic, you’ll be receiving a non-surgical treatment that helps reduce the lines and wrinkles on your face and neck. Botox works by addressing the signs of ageing that have already occurred in these areas and by forming something of a protective barrier against further signs of ageing. It’s not only for older women and men either – younger celebrities appreciate the virtues of Botox treatment. Millions of people across the world choose Botox every year to help them combat their facial wrinkles and lines. 

One major reason is due to the simple nature of the procedure. Your Botox doctor simply injects your facial muscles with Botox, which then restricts their mobility. It can take as little as fifteen minutes depending on how large an area you’re having treated and there’s no need for rest and recovery after, unlike with many invasive procedures. You can literally have Botox in your lunch hour and return to work. 

Botox is a trusted treatment, and it can also work in conjunction with other non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers. Speaking to your consultant enables you to work out whether Botox, dermal fillers or a combination of the two is right for you. 

Botox is also used by some clinics to treat excessive sweating on the feet, hands and in the armpits. It has more recently been used for treating grinding of the teeth (Bruxism). If this is something you’re interested in, ensure that the clinic you’re considering offers Botox injections for such purposes. A lot of people do not realise that Botox has these benefits and can be used for a number of different things, which is why research is so critical. 

How To Choose Your Botox Clinic

There are many cosmetic surgery clinics vying for your attention. However, the truth is that not all cosmetic surgeons or clinics are equal in stature or experience. The first thing to remember when you’re looking at Botox options is that cheap Botox offers can come with hidden costs. 

When the treatment is administered by a professional with a strong history of delivering Botox to their clients, the chances of things going wrong shrink dramatically. While there are always some risks with both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, choosing the best clinic available reduces these risks. 

These clinics will be honest with you about what results you can expect to see, thereby managing your expectations so that you’re not disappointed with the results of the treatment. Some of the best clinics even offer a free top-up after a certain amount of time to ensure that the area is fully treated. Professionals administer the right amount of Botox, ensuring that the results are as long-lasting as possible without causing you any harm. 

Botox is actually one of the safest cosmetic procedures available, with only a little discomfort and soreness associated with the injection. However, to get a full picture of how Botox will work for you, and to assess if you’re a suitable candidate, you must always speak to an expert in Botox delivery. 

So there you have it: an insight into Botox, which is undeniably the most popular treatment for people today who are looking to achieve a much more youthful appearance. Should you have any queries or concerns, the best thing to do is book a consultation with a clinic so that you can discuss this treatment in full. But please do your research first.
