Botox is a trade name for botulinum toxin. A virtually pain-free procedure is used to get botulinum toxin to the nerve-muscle interface where nerve messages to the muscle will be blocked.
This makes the muscle relax and so the overlying facial skin does not get pulled into a fold and wrinkles will flatten. This does depend on your skin having elasticity and so typically Botox becomes less useful to help flatten wrinkles in people beyond the age of 65. Commonly wrinkle become completely invisible in people in their 20s and 30s who receive Botox treatment.
Q. Isn't Botox dangerous?
A. Your Botox treatment will be prescribed and given by a highly experienced doctor. The doses required for facial lines are very small compared with doses used for some other medical conditions. Botox poses no serious risks at the doses prescribed for aesthetic treatment. You will be given time to discuss and understand the minor reversible risks that are occasionally associated with Botox treatment so that you can feel sure the treatment will suit you.
Q. How long does Botox treatment last?
A. It starts to work at 3 days and is fully working at 1-2 weeks. Typically the effect will be wearing off at 3-4 months
Q. Lots of celebrities look unnatural because they have had work done?
A. At S-Tox clinic we encourage treatment options that will look natural and do not make you look different, just younger and fresher.
Belotero is a form of the naturally occurring skin substance hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for keeping fluid in the skin to naturally hydrate and plump the skin from within, and this innate plumpness is most evident in young skin. Injecting belotero into the dermal layer of the skin restores the youthful fullness of skin so flattening wrinkles.
It is biodegradable and so its effects are always temporary lasting 6-12 months. Unlike some other fillers it is a naturally occurring skin substance and so is very safe and biocompatible.
Q. Does it work in older people?
A. It can be used at any age so long as the skin is not too thin or lax.
Q. Don't filled lips always look unnatural?
A. No, when careful and moderate amounts of filler are used it is possible to get a natural look. Filling just the lip border gives an improved youthful contour with only minimal change to the lip size for a natural look.
I was a bit apprehensive the first time in case I had the frozen look like some celebrities, but Dr Acorn gets it just right. It looks so natural nobody knows except me!
I hate needles, it took all my courage to go get treatment. I don't know why I worried, S-Tox clinic is amazing – I hardly felt a thing!
I got my lips done at a beautician with on anaesthetic, OMG never again. Dr Acorn used anaesthetics which were painless, the filler went in and I didn't even know. My lips look fantastic, sooooo pleased!!
