Wrinkle Relaxing Injections and Dermal Fillers
HOW WRINKLE RELAXING INJECTIONS CAN HELP: ‘Botox’ works to prevent muscle contraction in various areas of the face, smoothing out existing lines and preventing new ones forming. Main areas of treatment with Botox include the horizontal forehead lines, frown lines and around the outer areas of the eyes (crow’s feet).
Uniquely, Emma has also trained in treatment of the lines around the lower mouth (marionette lines), the neck and the eye brow lift using Botox.
Everyone reacts slightly differently to Botox treatment but typically, the full effects are clearly seen 3 to 10 days after your treatment and the effects become more pronounced, peaking at around 10 weeks before gradually reducing and disappearing completely after 12 to 18 weeks.
USES AND SAFETY:
These types of injections have been used globally for over 30 years now, and have an excellent safety record. There is no downtime after your treatment, however there are certain aftercare instructions such as avoiding alcohol, direct sunlight and hot atmospheres. Emma uses quality product Bocouture in all wrinkle-relaxing treatments. This particular brand of Botulinum Type A (‘Botox’) is created in such a way that it is very pure, making it a safer and more stable option.
This is a drug which is injected directly into muscles having a relaxing effect, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Around 25 years ago, trials were done proving its safety for use in the face to smooth away lines and wrinkles. Botox can be used all around the face to lift and prevent wrinkle formation and is used all over the world for this purpose today.
These are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and put back volume and contouring into the face, especially around the cheeks and mouth. We make HA naturally in our bodies but this gradually reduces with age.
As with all drugs, there are risks involved but a full medical history is taken at your initial consultation to ensure you are safe to be treated. Emma also uses quality, highly stable products to reduce the risk.
This depends on your natural metabolism – we are all different. In general, Botox lasts between 12-18 weeks on average, and Dermal Filler for 6-12 months depending on the type used.
