5 Things You Should Know Before Getting Botox Injections

For years, we’ve offered anti-wrinkle injections to those in and around Clapham, offering smoother skin; a more youthful complexion; and a refreshed and rested appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections – also called botox – can help you feel more confident about your appearance by fighting signs of ageing. But before booking a consultation for anti-wrinkle treatment, there are five things you should know. Here they are.

 

1. Anti-wrinkle injections are long-lasting

For an average 3-4 months, you could expect these fantastic smoothing benefits for your complexion. And you’ll often see results develop in just a couple of weeks. Our expert injection techniques apply the optimum amount of product in the target areas for a subtle and natural enhancement – and this also helps ensure you feel comfortable during and after treatment.

2. Botox isn’t poisonous

While it’s true injections use a natural toxin, anti-wrinkle treatment isn’t poisonous for your skin and most people tolerate treatment well. In fact, serious side-effects are extremely rare – though, as with any injection, you may experience some redness, swelling and tenderness afterwards. Botox is cleared as an injectable treatment, so you know you’re in safe hands. Our Clapham team will also take the time to answer any questions you have before treatment, helping you feel fully informed about your decision.

3. Dermal fillers are a completely different treatment

Because dermal fillers are also an injectable treatment, many people wonder whether they can use them for the same purposes. However, the two treatments work very differently – you may need something else, or benefit from both dermal fillers and botox. Dermal fillers “fill”, which means plumping and contouring, as well as targeting deep lines and wrinkles. Botox works by reducing muscle movement, which makes wrinkles appear softer and smoother.

4. Botox can be used preventatively

Anyone over the age of 18 – subject to a consultation – can have botox injections. While most people use it to treat wrinkles that have already developed, it can be used to slow down their development. That’s because the active ingredient restricts muscle movement – and muscles used for smiling, laughing, frowning and more etch these lines into your skin over time. The more the muscles are used, the deeper the wrinkles.

5. Anti-wrinkle injections won’t break the bank

Being one of the most popular aesthetic treatment choices all around the world, you’d expect botox to come with a hefty price tag. But at our Clapham clinic, we offer exceptional value for the expertise and quality of the product. And when it comes to looking and feeling your best – you can’t put a price tag on that.
