Botox

Anti-wrinkle injections can be prescribed by a medical practitioner from Lip Aesthetics for the treatment of lines and wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin (A) is used for this treatment, and commonly known as Botox. It is vital that you only have Botox treatments from experienced and insured medical professionals, as it is only available via prescription.


WHY SHOULD SOMEONE HAVE THIS TREATMENT?

If you feel like you are looking tired or less youthful than you’d like, anti-wrinkle injections can help give a fresh more youthful appearance.

How does it work?

Botulinum Toxin is a drug which works as a neuroinhibitor. It blocks localised signals in muscles, causing them to relax. Muscle contraction is what causes the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and by relaxing the muscle, the skin appears smoothed.

Botox is temporary, and the effects wear off in around three months, meaning muscles can once again contract. This means regular treatment is required to keep the appearance.

When will patients see results?

Botulinum toxin treatments will start to take effect between 3-10 days.

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

Typically three months

WHO GENERALLY HAS THIS TREATMENT

Female and male patients will have Botox treatment from their mid-twenties upwards. Patients can have it from 18+, but it is usually not needed at such a young age as there is no clinical need. Patients still have Botox in their 70s!
