Botox in Manchester
Botox is an excellent way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and can even prevent them from forming in the first place.
Facial lines are caused by ageing, sun damage, gravity and by the repeated use of facial muscles in a particular manner whether frowning, squinting or smiling. Botox temporarily freezes selected muscles for particular expressions allowing fine lines to soften out. Botox injections, unlike dermal fillers injections, do not erase deep established lines but they do allow wrinkles to become smoother and give the face a more relaxed appearance. The aim is to break the habit of frowning, which contributes to the development of wrinkles.
Medical Application for Botox in Manchester
Anyone who has migraines knows how painful they are and how debilitating they can be. Botox injections are proven to prevent migraines from occurring by freezing the muscles at the source of the problem. And the bonus is, you also can reduce any fine lines or wrinkles at the same time!
Botox is also used to reduce the muscles of the jaw using 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.
How Botox works
Botox is injected into the muscle; it works by inhibiting the release of messages from the nerve to the muscle and subsequently preventing contraction. The aesthetic effects of Botox 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 all 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.
However if at consultation you are fully satisfied and happy to go ahead with treatment, then your skin will be 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.
It can take up to 2 weeks to see the full effect of Botox, especially for first time patients. Subsequent treatment results are quicker. Do not hesitate to contact the clinic if you have any concerns about the treatment.
