Cosmetic injections in Leeds
Botox in Leeds is an excellent way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Facial lines are caused by ageing, sun damage, gravity and by the repeated use of facial muscles in a particular manner whether that is frowning, squinting or smiling. Botox temporarily freezes selected muscles for particular expressions causing fine lines to soften. Unlike dermal fillers, Botox injections do not erase deep established lines but they do cause wrinkles to appear smoother and can give the face a more relaxed appearance. The aim of Botox is to break the habit of frowning, which contributes to the development of wrinkles.
Medical Application for Botox Leeds
Anyone who has migraines knows how they can be both extremely painful and debilitating. Botox injections are proven to prevent migraines from occurring by freezing the muscles which are at the source of the problem. And as a bonus you also can reduce any fine lines or wrinkles at the same time!
Botox is also used to reduce the muscles of the jaw, a procedure called Masseter Hypertrophy. This can improve the appearance of the jawline and help with medical conditions such as teeth grinding. It’s quick and painless and a great alternative to surgery or dentistry. This procedure is done by our doctor in our Manchester clinic.
How Botox works
Botox is injected into the muscle. It works by inhibiting the release of messages from the nerve to the muscle, thus preventing contraction. The aesthetic effects last from 4-6 months for regular users. This varies according to the patient and their lifestyle, such as sun exposure and smoking habits.
At Skin Medical in Leeds all of our practitioners are medically qualified. Our prescribing nurse practitioners will perform a full clinical consultation to assess your medical history and discuss what your expectations are.
We are registered as an independent hospital by the Care Quality Commission and do not employ sales people/patient co-ordinators; therefore, you will be under no obligation to receive treatment from us should you not wish to.
If at consultation you are fully satisfied and happy to go ahead with treatment, then the skin is cleaned and the area you wish to be treated will be marked out carefully. Tiny amounts of Botox will be injected using micro needles into the areas marked.
Botox can take up to 2 weeks to see the full effect, especially for first time patients. Subsequent treatments results are quicker. Do not hesitate to contact the Leeds clinic if you have any concerns about the treatment.
