Lines and creases that settle on the face are often called expression lines, and they develop over time as we age. We express ourselves by laughing, smiling, squinting, frowning and talking, causing the fine lines around eyes and forehead to deepen and for lines to appear around the mouth. Smoking, stress and sun exposure will also cause wrinkles to etch deeper into the skin. Botox is a safe, fast and simple solution for reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox injections are one of the most popular performed non-surgical cosmetic procedures, and if you would like to have more self-confidence in your appearance, then botox injections can make your face look and feel more relaxed and rejuvenated. The results of botox treatment last between three and four months, then they gradually start to fade, but if you have repeated botox treatments, the results might last longer.
The benefits of botox include:
- Softer, smoother looking skin
- It can relax frown and stress lines
- Reduces lines around the lips
- Opens up the eyes
- Will give you a refreshed appearance
- Eliminates crows feet around the eyes
- Safe, quick, injectable treatment
- Proven results
- No recovery time
Botox treatment is usually painless, but some clients might experience minimal discomfort. Your chosen cosmetic clinic practitioner can minimise any potential discomfort by applying a topical anaesthetic before your treatment, making the botox injection gentle and pain-free. The cosmetic team will put you at ease and give you support throughout the experience.
A very fine needle injects a tiny amount of botox into the facial muscles where you want to erase wrinkles and fine lines, and although the injections are quick you might experience a small pin-prick feeling. It might be necessary to have multiple injections, depending on the depth of the facial lines. The treatment is safe and you are able to drive yourself to and from your clinic appointment and you can return to your regular activities immediately following your botox treatment.
You will usually see the results of your botox treatment within a few days and you'll see more improvement after two weeks when your muscles will be inactive. Your skin will soften and the fine lines and wrinkles will become less visible, giving your face a firmer, more youthful appearance. Subtly administered botox treatment can control how you look as you get older, but this treatment isn't about making you look years younger, but more about making you look fresher, relaxed and rejuvenated.
