Botulinum toxin is currently one of the most popular botox treatments that is available on the market due to its highly effective technology and impact on your skins appearance. It is naturally a protein that works to stop muscle spasms once it has been directly injected into the muscle. Normally when a muscle spasm occurs it is the result of a chemical message being sent to the muscle from the nerves, which instructs the muscles to contract in the manner in which we are accustomed (tightening). Botulinum toxin is so effective because it works effectively to stop those messages, so there is no wrinkling or contraction that takes place.
The science behind the injections can at first lead people to question the toxin’s safety, although botulinum injections are entirely safe. As it would happen, the toxin is compiled of the same bacterium which create food poisoning, which would mean that a high dose of this substance could be fatal. However this is not the case with botulinum injections, as the dose administered is so small you would be unlikely to react with any harmful side-effects of the toxin as it has been used safely for many years.
Anti-wrinkle injectables such as this one are primarily used for treatment on the face, in problems areas such as around the eyes, for crow’s feet and for forehead wrinkles. The treatment can also be used to lift the eyebrows, reduce orange peel and to perk up the corners of the mouth.
NERFERTITI NECK LIFT
In addition to offering this service, we also perform the Nefertiti neck lift, a brand-new technique which involves situating multiple injections of Botox along the jawline and down the side of the neck. This is a highly effective way to improve the jawline and provide a lifting to the whole area. Taking its name from the ancient Egyptian tradition of a long neck being symbolic of beauty, these treatment is ideal for those who are looking to reinstate their youth.
Botulinum toxin can also work against the irritating problem of excessive sweating. This is medically referred to as hyperhidrosis and can occur in areas such as the feet or the armpits. The toxin works by being injected into the sweat gland to block the reaction which would cause this excessive sweating, without impacting other nerve functions.
Once you have received your treatment you can continue on with your day much the same, although we would advise against undergoing any strenuous activity in order to allow the injections to absorb properly. Upon departure, we will book you in a for a free post-treatment check-up in approximately two weeks’ time, which will give us an opportunity to evaluate your course of treatment.
