Botulinum Toxin is the first choice for treatment of the lines and wrinkles on the face that occur when the muscles move from concentrating, frowning and laughing. When we are younger these movements smooth away as the muscle relaxes but as we get older the skin loses its elasticity and gradually lines form permanently. At Springwell Clinic we aim for you to look naturally refreshed and relaxed following your treatment. You will have a one-to-one consultation with your nurse prior to any treatment where you can discuss Botox™ fully, to see if it is the right treatment for you. Our Botox treatment clinic is in Marlow, a stone’s throw from Maidenhead, Cookham, Amersham, Beaconsfield and Henley-on-Thames, simply give us a call to book your consultation today.
Botulinum Toxin-A started to be used cosmetically 26 years ago when it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It was discovered in the 1820s and has been used for medical treatments since 1950.
It is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments with over 6 million treatments administered world wide every year. It continues to gain in popularity and is now almost considered the ‘norm’ in treating lines and wrinkles. We are aware of celebrities having treatments and often very poor or overdone treatments hit the front pages but the majority of people who have Botulinum Toxin-A treatments have natural results making them look refreshed and more youthful. There are 3 different types of Botulinum Toxin-A on the market and although they all act in slightly different ways, give the same results.
As well as treatment for lines and wrinkles other conditions that can be treated with Botulinum Toxin-A are Bruxism – this is where we over clench or grind our teeth in our sleep resulting in a build up of muscle and a wearing down of teeth, as well as being very annoying for the other person who shares your bed! It can be treated simply and the results are fantastic. Gummy smiles are where full teeth and gums show when smiling. A few units put in the right place can relax the muscle resulting in a more natural smile. Headaches caused by over frowning or concentrating at computers, can be improved by relaxing the muscles in the forehead. Hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating treated with Botulinum Toxin-A can simply improve this condition by 70-80% giving the person who suffers with it almost immediate relief.
Other medical conditions treated with Botulinum Toxin A are Chronic Migraine, overactive bladders, muscle twitching and spasms.
Botulinum Toxin-A should only be injected by an expert medical injector, who has a lot of experience. This way you will ensure you have a natural looking result. When first looking into having treatment for any of the cosmetic treatments, do some back ground checks on the injector, typically you should look for the follow:
Botulinum Toxin is a naturally occurring protein and is a prescription-only medicine that must be administered by a medical practitioner. There are several brands on the market, such as Botox Cosmetic™, Vistabel™ and Xeomin™. At Springwell Clinic, our nurses are fully trained and extensively experienced in administering Botulinum Toxin.
Treatments are suitable for removing and softening lines, such as the frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and crows feet, as well as softening the lines around the mouth (lipstick lines) and lifting the corners of the mouth. It is also used to soften the ‘pebbly’ effect on the chin, to enhance your jaw line and to smooth neck lines, and it can be used to reduce underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis).
If you have lines and wrinkles that remain when your face is relaxed then you could benefit from this treatment. These lines usually start to occur in our late twenties in both men and women, and can affect self-esteem and confidence so smoothing them away to give a more youthful appearance can be hugely beneficial. You cannot have Botulinum Toxin treatments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have any allergies to it, are taking certain antibiotics, or if you suffer from severe neuromuscular disorders.
Botulinum Toxin has been used safely for over 20 years to treat facial lines and wrinkles. There are no reported long-term side effects from it although it is not uncommon for a little temporary bruising to occur.
I have been going to Stephanie Green for both Fillers and Botox for the past ten years and can not begin to express how professional and competent she is. Since I have been going to her I have seen huge improvements in my skin. I had some acne scarring from when I was a teenager and with fillers she has helped to smooth this over and the wrinkles around my lips and eyes have been considerably reduced. I love getting my botox™ topped up, as within a matter of days I can see a dramatic improvement around my eyes and my forehead is now so much smoother.
