A Botox injection has huge transformative potential. Just smoothing over one deep forehead wrinkle can have a hugely rejuvenating effect on your face. Don’t believe us? Try standing in front of the mirror and placing your hand over one of your prominent sets of wrinkles; whether that’s the lines that stretch horizontally across your forehead, or the two lines that appear vertically between eyebrows. How many years younger do you look?
Anti wrinkle treatment here in Plymouth works by temporarily halting your muscles from contracting. It’s when muscles contract that wrinkles are formed. Your Botox injection will prevent the treated wrinkles on your upper face for 3 to 4 months. You’ll still be able to make all the facial expressions you made prior to your treatment, but you should look visibly less tired and noticeably revitalised. Your friends might comment that you look ‘rested’ or ‘well’, but ultimately you should look younger and less worried.
What happens during a Botox injection treatment?
Before you have your actual injection, you’ll need to visit us for a consultation. This will give us a chance to assess your skin and how it’s ageing with a view to providing you with optimal results. At this stage, we’ll also be able to answer any questions you might have.
On the day of your appointment, we’ll welcome you into our comfortable, modern treatment room. Should you have a low pain threshold, you will be offered a local anaesthetic, but most of our customers report that the injection causes them no pain. The injection itself will take just a few minutes. There may be slight bruising or redness afterwards, but this will soon settle down.
You won’t see the results immediately, but rather 3 to 4 days later, with the results of the treatment being complete 10 to 12 days later. If you’re ready to turn back the clock and discover the transformative power of Botox injections here at our Plymouth Practice, please give us a call to book your consultation.
