Anti-Wrinkle Botox® Treatments in Cheltenham
What is Anti Wrinkle Treatment?
Botulinum Toxin A is injected in minute amounts into the muscles that cause dynamic lines. This injection temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause certain lines in the face and as a result of this these lines and wrinkles become reduced. The effects are not immediate and in general it will take about 4 days for you to see an effect.
What are the limitations
Botox® injections relax wrinkles. They cannot lift the face or fill hollows. In these instances dermal fillers or a mini facelift may be more suitable. Botox® injections are always performed by our Consultant Cosmetic Surgeon, Rob Warr.
What is involved?
Following an independent consultation, you will be assessed and advised of the most suitable treatment for you. The treatment itself will take about 20 minutes and you will be able to return to normal activities afterwards. The smoothing effects of the first treatment typically lasts for up to 3-4 months. You will need to return for regular 3 monthly treatments during the first year as the optimum results are obtained if the next treatment is performed before the effects of the previous treatment has worn off. With repeated treatments the relaxed and softened effects will last longer.
Possible side effects
Side effects, if they occur, are usually temporary and mild to moderate. Usually side effects are typically linked to the injections e.g. pain on injection, redness and mild swelling.
