Botox otherwise known as Botulinum toxin is an FDA approved medicine that achieves great results when it comes to tackling fine lines and wrinkles.
Wrinkles are unfortunately unavoidable and just part of ageing. The repeated contraction of the facial muscles combined with environmental impacts such as sun exposure and pollution causes lines and wrinkles to form in a more permanent way.
Botox treatment areas
There are several areas that can be treated with Botox each targeting different concerns.
- Forehead; Forehead and frown lines can be relaxed with botox creating a smoother and fresh appearance.
- Eyebrows; Botox can help create an eyebrow lift effect by relaxing the muscles that pull the brow line down.
- Between the Eyebrows; Lines in this area are known as the glabella lines or the 11’s. Botox in this area can help relax these lines giving a smoother appearance.
- Corner of the eyes; Fine lines can appear around the corner of the eyes which are also known as crow’s feet, botox injections can help to relax these lines giving a more refreshed appearance.
- Nose: Botox can be injected into the upper portion of the nose to smooth horizontal lines also known as ‘bunny lines’
- Cheek; When botox is injected into the cheek, it can help to reduce the symptoms of bruxism to prevent teeth grinding as well as making the face more oval in appearance.
- Upper Lip; Botox treatment can reduce the lines which appear on the upper lip and can also be injected to relax the top lip reducing the appearance of a gummy smile.
- Around the mouth; Injection into the marionette lines can help to turn the corner of the upwards to improve the appearance of prejowl.
- Chin; Botox is used on the chin to help remove chin lines and improve the appearance of a dimpled chin.
- Neck; To reduce the appearance of neck rings in the neck injecting botox into the ‘Platysmal Bands’ can tighten the neck and decrease banding.
- Armpits; Hyperhidrosis treatment uses botox to reduce severe sweating in the armpits which can also be performed on the hands. The treatment works by blocking the transmission of the nerve impulses to the sweat glands which as a result decreases the amount you sweat/perspire.
Botox injections are still unregulated in the UK but they should only be performed by a highly qualified nurse or doctor. When botox injections are wrongly performed it can result in a number of negative side effects such as a frozen forehead and a complete lack of facial expressions which is always something that should be avoided.
At The Private Clinic we only work with registered, experienced doctors and nurses who have undergone extensive additional training to qualify in prescribing and performing wrinkle injections treatment.
