All you need to know – Wrinkle Treatments

CAN BOTOX PREVENT WRINKLES?

Absolutely. It’s an important need to know about wrinkle treatments.  The Botox in our wrinkle treatments contain a highly purified toxin that can temporarily erase or reduce horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines, and crow’s-feet. “The injections slow muscles that contract hundreds of times a day, eventually etching lines in the skin”.  It can also lift the corners of the mouth that sag with age.  Smooth out the “pin cushion” look in some chins.  Soften smoker’s lines around the mouth, and soften vertical neck cords.

WILL THE WRINKLE TREATMENTS MAKE ME FEEL NUMB AND LOOK FROZEN?

It will not affect the nerves that cause sensation, or make you feel numb. When it is used correctly, Botox in Bournemouth can lift the brow to give an appealing and sincere look. “But if too much is injected in the danger zone—the horizontal lines in the forehead—you can look Spocked, as in Spock from Star Trek,” That’s why it’s important to be treated by an experienced doctor or aesthetic practitioner who can judge the size of your muscles and how much product you will need.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Prices vary widely. The toxins come dehydrated and must be reconstituted, so some doctors reportedly over-dilute, or simply don’t use enough, so be very wary of cheap prices, “deals” and “special offers”. The quality of the result always depends on who is on the other end of the needle.

WHAT’S THE IDEAL AGE TO START HAVING WRINKLE TREATMENTS?

You don’t need it before you have wrinkles to hide, it has nothing to do with age, some of us simply don’t use our facial muscles as much as others do. Other than that, a patient can have it safely whenever they are bothered by their wrinkles. There is no issue with long term use: aesthetic practitioners have had patients who have used it repeatedly for over 20 years without any negative effects.

HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?

It varies from patient to patient, but good results usually last approximately three months. If you are looking for a longer-term solution, our dermal fillers in Bournemouth can last between six and eighteen months.

WILL MY FRIENDS KNOW I HAD ANYTHING DONE?

Yes and no. A good result will leave you looking fresher, more cheerful, and perhaps younger.  Telltale signs of treatment that has been badly done are a smooth and shiny forehead, or eyebrows and crow’s-feet that don’t move when you laugh or cry.
