Botox – Zoe, 35, Bracknell
Zoe came to the clinic for a free consultation to discuss if Botox would help reduce the fine lines and wrinkles she had developed in her upper face. Zoe admitted to having had a lot of sun exposure as a teenager and during her twenties with lots of hot holidays. She has fair skin, blonde hair and blue eyes. This means she is more susceptible to sun damage and although she has recently started to take more care of her skin, using a sun protection factor of 50, she has already got some sun damage which has resulted not just in pigmentary changes, but also by creating fine lines particularly on her forehead.
Apart from getting into a good skincare regime, one of the best ways to treat these fine lines is to use Botox. Botox works by reducing the movement in the muscles that are creating the lines, allowing Zoe’s body to repair the lines. If Botox is used regularly for a while, the lines can be completely repaired and with maintenance treatments twice a year, they shouldn’t come back.
Zoe was concerned about starting Botox at her age. The age to start having Botox is when lines and wrinkles appear and stay on the skin once the movement has stopped. This can vary from person to person depending on age, skin colour, and extrinsic life style choices such as smoking, sun exposure and alcohol intake. As Zoe’s lines are fine, they should soften very quickly and Botox treatments should look natural and make the person look refreshed as if they have been on a good holiday and not frozen!
Zoe had a gentle treatment in three areas, her frown lines, her forehead and around her eyes. Botox takes up to 14 days to completely finish working so for the first treatment I tend to slightly under treat and top up at 14 days. I then know how much Botox her muscles need for a good result. All followup treatments are free of charge at Springwell Clinic.
Zoe was delighted with her results.
“I had been noticing lines and wrinkles across my forehead for a few however in the last 6-12 months they were becoming more prominent. So much so I wouldn’t allow anyone to take any photos of me. I began reading about wrinkle treatments and found a number of articles appearing on Botox and decided the time had come to actually do something about them. I was very nervous as I didn’t know what to expect, And was worried everybody would be able to tell and would judge me. I researched local clinics and decided on Springwell because of their experience and that they were nurses.
Stephanie explained about how Botox would work and talked me through how the treatment would be carried out which put me greatly at ease. When I got home the after the first treatment, I felt absolutely fine there were no tell tell signs I had just had Botox, it took 5 days for me to first notice a difference and wow what a difference it was, because it happened over a number of days it was a subtle change, 10 days after the treatment I noticed a massive difference in my forehead it was smooth line and wrinkle free. I had no side effects from the treatment and at no point did I have any pain. I am so happy with the results I’ve never taken so many photos.”
