Unlike some other cosmetic medical treatments which are known to be expensive, Botox is an affordable treatment. It is suitable for anybody who has wrinkles or other skin lines that they want to remove. Facial wrinkles are the result of the effects of ageing and constant use of the muscles and can also be exacerbated by exposure to the sun, smoking and alcohol consumption. Botox will help to minimise the consequences of all this and is suitable for almost anyone of any age, although you should not have treatment if you are pregnant or breast-feeding
Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of facial lines for a period of time. The benefits usually last for around three to four months after the first treatment and longer after subsequent treatments. Botox helps the body to create additional natural collagen, giving a more youthful appearance.
Dr Pitt can treat all of the following areas and problems:
- Crow’s feet,
- Glabella lines (between the eyes),
- Forehead lines,
- Frown lines,
- “Bunny” lines on the nose
- Lip line alterations to give less “gummy” smiles
- Grinding and clenching of teeth which result in headaches or migraines
Botox treatment has been rumoured to have given rise to some ‘horror stories’ but when administered correctly, it gives a natural look that will hide those lines and still ensure you are able to frown and show expressions such as surprise!
Botox is a convenient treatment that can be carried out during a lunch hour and you will be able to carry on with your day normally as soon as you leave the clinic. It is however important to avoid any strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for 24 hours after having the treatment. Side effects are rare, but occasionally some clients experience bruising, or slight headaches, although this usually fades quickly.
Before you leave the clinic at the end of your treatment, we will book you in for a free appointment 1-2 weeks later. This is so that we can review the results of your treatment once it has taken full effect. We can also book your next top up appointment in 3-4 months time to save you the hassle of remembering to book it yourself!
