Botox in Bournemouth
What is Botox and how does it work?
Botox or Botulinum Toxin Type A is a highly purified protein. It has been used medically for many years before it was noticed to have cosmetic advantages. When you have Botox treatment in bournemouth, Botox is injected into the muscles, it relaxes the target area resulting in reduced muscle activity. It acts at the junction between the nerves and the muscles to prevent the release of a chemical messenger called acetylcholine from the nerve endings which prevents the muscle from contracting. There is no right or wrong time to start (preventative) botox.
The best anti ageing treatment
Did you know that Botox is the best anti ageing treatment? Did you know that the NHS will offer Botox for medical conditions and offer guidelines for finding a practitioner for cosmetic botox?. This wrinkle eliminating procedure will see you saying goodbye to deep set wrinkles and fine lines alike.
Austin Brewer can also use botox to give a brow lift, which lifts the eyebrows to open up the face, giving a fresh youthful look. So no more frowning, crows feet or forehead lines.
There is only one botox in a bottle and it needs to be administered by a medical professional. No face cream will ever do what botox can, no matter what the claims on the label. We use the original and the best botox which is Allergan’s Botox – they are among the world leaders in cosmetic and medical injectables.
Wrinkles will be eliminated, you will be left with smooth natural results, and you will still be able to move your eyebrows!.
Does treatment hurt?
Although everyone’s pain threshold is varied, generally there is no more discomfort than plucking an eyebrow hair.
How long will Botox take to work?
You may start to notice an effect after 1-2 days of having treatment. However, this varies with each patient. The full effect can take up to 2 weeks following treatment. Which is when we will see you for a check up (at no additional cost) to make sure everything is perfect.
How long does it last?
Each treatment lasts approximately 3 – 9 months, depending entirely on where is treated. Although each patient will find this varies as the effects wear off gradually. Full guidance about aftercare will be given at your appointment.
Where can I have Botox?
Treatment can be administered on any areas around the face into a muscle that is causing the skin to crease including:
- The forehead – horizontal lines
- Around the eyes – crows feet
- Frown line between the eyes at the top of the nose – glabella – 11’s
- Jaw line and chin – dimpled
Austin Brewer offers free consultations for all of his botox treatments in Bournemouth, this is because we understand it is completely natural to have questions about Botox and even to be a little nervous. This is why we always say to avoid practitioners who solely advertise on social media.
We cannot emphasise how important it is to only trust a medical professional with your botox injections. There are some horrendous cases out there and unfortunately more and more here in Bournemouth & Poole as seen in this article from The Daily Mail Complications are rare – but it’s much safer to be in a clinic dedicated to facial cosmetic injectables rather than a beauty salon. We have the necessary equipment to deal with any complications that could possibly arise, along with Austin, who is of course a fully qualified nurse. Ps. We have never seen any issues arise – but always better to be prepared and stay safe.
