As we age we loose tone and the natural elasticity of the skin. This prevents recoiling of the skin which leads to the formation of wrinkles, fine lines and folds. Antiwrinkle injections commonly known as Botox®, targets muscles and temporarily restricts their movement. This allows the overlying skin to repair resulting in a smooth and youthful wrinkle free appearance.
Botox® provides a safe and effective treatment for men and women that does not require surgery and is used to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Ideal areas for treatment are wrinkles that appear in between the brows, in the forehead and the crows feet.
The best time to consider having Botox® is when you begin to notice that your dynamic lines (these are the wrinkles that only appear through expression) appear regardless of expression and form even when static. This usually happens in your 30’s, however it differs from person to person dependant on genetic and lifestyle factors such as sun exposure, stress, smoking and other environmental factors. Botox® works best at this stage, rather than with deeply etched lines, which are more difficult to smooth the appearance of later on. Botox® remains one of the most affordable, fastest working safe and effective non-surgical, anti-aging treatments available.
Botox® injections are quick, safe and simple. Botox® is injected in small amounts under the skin. This causes wrinkles to fade and lines to become smoothed resulting in a younger you with head turning results. Book your consultation!
No. Botox® injections are safe and depending on the amount of areas being treated, a Botox® procedure is completed over a few minutes with patient able to return back to normal life. They are not painful and results can be started to notice 4-5 days after treat. Follow up reviews are done at 2 weeks (were full effect becomes visible) to achieve great results and patient care – something not done at other clinics.
Botox® can last for three to six months depending on the client.
During a Botox® treatment, Doctor Bassanini will use his developed technique to administer a controlled amount of Botox® into the patient using a small needle. An optional numbing cream is available, but the procedure is relatively pain free.
There is no downtime with Botox®, although patients may be advised to stop taking medications such as aspirin prior to the appointment to minimise chances of bruising. The longer you wait, the more invasive the treatments for wrinkles become. Botox® can be used prophylactically to prevent the appearance of wrinkles becoming etched into the skin.
Areas that Botox® can treat include:
- Frown lines (between the brows)
- Crow's feet (around eyes)
- Above the lip (gummy smile correction)
Botox® can stop migraines before they even start, with treatments recommended every 3 months for maximum effect. This works by blocking the release of the neurotransmitters that are associated with causing pain, meaning that you no longer have to experience the severe pain of a migraine.
Botox® is very safe and the side effects are very rare.
