Anti Wrinkle (Botox) Injections at ReShapeU
Anti-Wrinkle injections or better known as ( BOTOX®) is a simple, but safe and effective way for you to improve your fine lines and deep wrinkles in many areas of the face. They work by relaxing facial muscles while making lines and wrinkles, such as crow's feet and frown lines, much less obvious.
The procedure can have remarkable results in improving the wrinkles and fine lines resulting from hyperactive facial muscles that can occur making our skin lose its elasticity with age. It is also used to treat frown lines, between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines known as 11s and ‘crows feet’ the lines around the eyes.
The muscle relaxing injections using Botox or similar branded products, can be completely tailored to your individual face. They offer you an effective and far less invasive treatment choice to smooth away your fine lines and wrinkles. The result is a much softer, more relaxed and healthier looking appearance. The effects can last around four months and can be repeated when needed or required by the individual. Most patients require less frequent treatments over time as the muscles ‘retrain’ themselves and so weaken from less use.
Areas that can be treated with BOTOX® include the following:
Frown lines between eyebrows (Glabellar Region)
Smile lift (downturned mouth)
Lipstick or smokers lines
Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating)
How Does It Work?
Botulinum Toxin better known as (BOTOX®) is a purified protein which produces a bacteria, which when carefully injected it then relaxes the contracted facial muscles. Botulinum Toxin also blocks certain chemical signals from the nerves, and so most signals that cause muscles to contract then softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles that have already formed.
This treatment is ideal for easing any over-active muscle movement that can cause deep frown lines and crows feet among others. It can also be used to treat excessive sweating, alleviate the symptoms of migraines and redefine the jawline.
What Can I Expect In Treatment?
Your skin will be cleansed and small amounts of Botulinum Toxin are then injected into the muscles of the areas of the face to be treated. A tiny needle is used to minimise discomfort resulting in a small scratch like sensation. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, dependant on each individual and the extent of the area/s being treated.
Are There Any Side Effects?
It is important that the injections are placed precisely in the correct order to avoid any potential side effects. ReShapeU have been specialising in BOTOX® treatments since 2016 and our medical practitioners have a wealth of experience in administering Botulinum Toxin.
BOTOX® treatment is not painful and most clients compare the feeling to that of a quick sharp scratch. You may experience some mild swelling or bruising at the injection site but this will subside after a day or so in most cases.
How Many Treatments Would I Need?
A single treatment of BOTOX® can last between 3-4 months depending on the individual client and areas treated.
What Results Can I Expect To See?
Results don’t show immediately and you can expect to wait a few days for the treatment to take affect but up to 2 weeks for the full effect to be seen. Results will last for a period of up to 4 months, after which many clients return for further treatments to keep the new appearance.
