Botox is becoming an increasingly popular treatment for anti-ageing due to its fast, effective results. If you live in the Preston area and are considering Botox, Skin Medical may be right for you. Located just a short drive or train ride away in Manchester city centre, we offer competitively priced Botox administered only by doctors or prescribing nurses with over ten years’ experience.
What Causes Skin To Age?
As we get older, fine lines and wrinkles become more pronounced and the skin can appear looser. There are many factors that cause skin to age. UV exposure from the sun or sun beds, repeated muscle contractions when you frown or squint, cellular changes, collagen depletion and free radical damage are just a few of the reasons that cause skin to age.
How Does Botox Work?
When injected directly into the muscle, Botox blocks the nerve impulses to this muscle, temporarily paralysing it. This reduces the muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles to form. The most common areas to be treated by Botox are the ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes, the ‘frown lines’ between the eyebrows, and lines on the forehead. Within several days you will see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles in the injected areas, and skin will also appear smoother and healthier. Results last for around three to six months, and with repeated use, some wrinkles may disappear altogether.
At Skin Medical we only use Allergan Botox which is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, meaning that it has been tested and deemed safe for cosmetic use. Other ‘botox’ manufacturers are not regulated in the same was as Allergan and will not provide you with the same results. A higher quality Botox means better results. With our experienced practitioners you will achieve visible, natural-looking results. When administered properly you will not see a radical change in facial appearance, just smoother, healthier looking skin.
