Although facial changes are a natural part of the ageing process, you do not have to endure them. While steps can be taken to slow the appearance of wrinkles, such as quitting smoking, drinking in moderation, eating a nutrient-rich diet and protecting our skin from the sun, there is only so much that these healthy lifestyle changes can protect us. If you are looking for a more youthful appearance to boost your confidence, Botox may offer the solution you are looking for.
Not only can Botox be used to smooth out a range of facial wrinkles, but it can also be used for other procedures such as those to tighten your cheeks and for facial slimming. With this non-surgical treatment available in our London skin clinic, you can easily fit this procedure into your schedule.
Botox offers a safe cosmetic treatment for the removal of crow’s feet around your eyes, frown lines and wrinkles on your forehead, as well as eyebrow lifts and procedures to the lower part of your face. Although derived from a bacterial toxin, Botox is a pure protein and approved for medical treatments, such as the management of muscle spasms, uncontrolled blinking and the correction of foot defects associated with cerebral palsy. Knowing that it is used for medical purposes offers you reassurance that this treatment is a low-risk procedure. However, not only is Botox safe, but it is a highly effective cosmetic treatment. When Botox is injected into the face, it works by preventing the transmission of nerve impulses, allowing the muscles responsible for unwanted lines to relax. As a result your skin appears smoother within 5 days, and in a fortnight it will seem as if you have taken years off your appearance. Although the results do fade over time, you can enjoy a more youthful complexion for as long as 6 months after treatment (this will also depend from person to person).
Before you receive the injections at the Dermadoc Clinic in London, your cosemtic doctor will prepare a solution using the purified Botox and saline. The Botox is then introduced to the appropriate area of your face using a fine needle. You can be confident that the doctor administering the Botox is highly trained. All doctors practicing at Dermadoc in London cosmetic clinic have at least 5 year’s experience of performing cosmetic procedures and they maintain their knowledge and skills in the most up-to-date techniques through regular attendance at clinical conferences that cover cosmetic treatments.
Not only that, but Dermadoc’s founder, Dr Tukmachi, has membership of the British college of Aesthetic Medicine, which promotes the safe and ethical delivery of cosmetic procedures. With his dedicated approach and commitment to patient care, it’s no surprise that he has such a favourable reputation and is a popular choice among patients looking for non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Dr Tukmachi has trained all of his cosmetic doctors working with him at Dermadoc Cosmetic Clinic. However, whichever doctor performs your procedure, you will not be disappointed with their professionalism and the results you achieve. If you have any questions about your Botox procedure, any of the doctors at our clinic in London will be happy to answer them; this includes discussing other possible treatments such as the use of dermal fillers, which are another way to successfully treat wrinkles.
Although the possible after-effects will be explained before you receive your Botox injection, you may wish to know about these before pursuing the procedure any further. However, there is no need to worry, as side-effects after cosmetic Botox are very uncommon, owing to the very small doses of active ingredient used in the injections. While redness or swelling may occur straight after receiving your injections, this is only temporary, which in most cases subsides within the first 30 minutes following treatment. While bruising is another potential symptom, our highly skilled doctors take measures to minimise the risk of this. With this knowledge you can confidently resume your day’s activities after receiving this non-surgical option for wrinkles.
As part of our patient satisfaction and care, you will be invited to a review appointment a fortnight after your treatment. This additional session is free of charge, as are any extra injections you receive at this appointment. If deemed necessary your doctor offers these additional shots to maximise the effectiveness of your treatment, increasing your satisfaction.
