If you live in the Ashton area and are considering getting anti ageing treatments such as Botox then Skin Medical may be what you have been looking for. Located just a short drive, bus, or tram ride away in Manchester city centre, Skin Medical has been providing anti ageing treatment for over ten years’ using qualified nurse prescribers.
Botox is a safe and effective way to treat wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles from forming without the need for invasive surgery. The most common areas for treatment using Botox are the ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes, ‘frown lines’ between the eyebrows, and lines on the forehead.
Botox works by inhibiting the contraction of targeted muscles when it is injected into the facial muscles. This causes the muscles to relax and corrects a range of facial imperfections, notably the appearance of wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin Type A is injected under the skin into the areas where the muscles of the face contract which causes the muscles to temporarily become paralysed and prevents wrinkles from forming.
The effects of Botox become apparent between 5 and 10 days after the procedure, and results last for roughly 3 to 6 months. The longer the patient uses Botox the longer the effects have lasted, and, in some cases, some wrinkles have disappeared altogether.
Allergan At Skin Cosmetic Clinic
In line with its growing popularity over the past few years, many companies have begun to produce what they claim to be Botox. However, these types of Botox may not necessarily have undergone the high levels of quality and safety testing that products such as Allergan have been subject to. Allergan is considered the leading producer of Botox and it has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, deeming it safe for cosmetic use. At Skin Cosmetic Clinic we only use Allergan Botox to ensure safety and results for our patients.
