Fiona Clossick Facial Aesthetics is exceptionally pleased to offer the effective treatment of Botox in Birmingham and many of the surrounding areas. Understandably, you may have a few questions about the treatment first, so read on to find out more.
Botulin Toxin A (Botox) Injections
There are many benefits of Botulin toxin A injections (more commonly known as Botox) and there are 5 brands available in the UK, all of which are highly effective, safe and reliable. Botox produces wonderfully natural results. Botox is the most effective treatment for smoothing out dynamic facial lines, generally around the forehead, around the eyes and between the eyebrows. Wrinkles are smoothed out and sometimes completely disappear. To ensure that you are completely satisfied with the results of your Botox from Fiona Clossick Facial Aesthetics, patients are invited to a follow up appointment 2 weeks following the treatment. As it is extremely effective when it comes to tackling wrinkles as well as being wholly affordable, Botox in Birmingham is becoming increasingly popular.
How long does a Botox® injection treatment take and is it painful?
Good results can be obtained after a single Botox injection, taking just a few minutes and the effects generally lasts between 3- 5 months. Administering Botox in Birmingham at Fiona Clossick Facial Aesthetics is a simple procedure and most patients find the injections only cause a mild stinging lasting only seconds. It is encouraging to note that clinical trials report that some patients who have had treatment over 12 months only require further treatments twice the following year. It is important to be aware that it takes between 5-7 days for the treatment to work.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by inhibiting chemical messengers in the facial muscles, thereby reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time.
Hyperhidrosis (excess sweating)
Much like the treatment for wrinkles, Botox injections inhibit chemical messengers which in this case results in the reduction of sweating. The effect can take two weeks to become apparent and the results can last up to ten months.
Following treatment there may be slight bruising at the injection site and occasionally you may experience a mild headache.
