BOTOX® Injections FAQs
Are Botox® Injections Safe Around The Eyes?
Yes, anti-ageing injections such as BOTOX® are safe to use for wrinkles around the eyes. However, never trust an unqualified, unregulated practitioner to carry out this treatment. Under the surface of your skin is a complex network of nerves and muscles, so a qualified health professional is best placed to deliver anti-ageing injections.
Can Botox® Injections Be Used For Nose To Mouth Lines?
In general, BOTOX® injections are not usually used around the nasolabial folds or nose to mouth lines. This is because relaxing the muscles in the lower half of your face is a complex process and can affect how you smile. In some cases, a low dose of BOTOX® might be suitable for nasolabial folds. The doctor administering your treatment will be able to advise you about this.
Is Botox Safe?
Yes defintely. Botox has been FDA approved since 2002 for treating agening lines effectively. Like most cosmetic treatments, side effects can occur, some clients report mild bruising whilst very occasionally- approximately 1-3% – experience a ‘droopy eyelid’ both however can be corrected or will fade in time. To reduce the risk of complications it is important that anti-wrinkle injectables are administered by highly qualified practitioners in a safe and medical environment.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Botox?
BOTOX® injectables are mainly used for the face. Forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet lines around the eyes, and the “11 lines” between the eyebrows are the most popular areas. However, other uses include preventing excess sweating.
What Happens At My Botox Consultation?
Your consultation for BOTOX® treatment will be with a highly trained medical professional who is experienced in administering injectables. In order to ensure we achieve the results you want, we will discuss with you your skin concerns, timings and finances. Our consultations are no obligation and we aim to help you understand the treatment, its effects and how it works to prevent and/or improve your fine lines.
What Is Botox Used For?
Botulinum toxin, or Botox as it is more commonly known, is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles. People also use Botox to treat excessive sweating, migraines, muscular disorders.
Are Anti-Ageing Injectables Safe?
Absolutely. BOTOX® injections in the face are FDA and MHRA (US Food and Drug Administration, UK Medicines and Products Healthcare Regulatory Agency) approved. BOTOX® injections and fillers have been used for many years with no known adverse effects. Like most cosmetic treatments, side effects rarely occur. Mild bruising and swelling is sometimes reported and a small percentage of users (1-3%) will experience drooping brows or eyelids. Both can be corrected and are temporary. To reduce the risk of complication, it is vital that you have anti-ageing injectables in a safe and medical environment. At sk:n, your treatment will be carried out only by a registered healthcare professional.
How Can I Prevent Forehead Lines?
Keeping your skin protected from the sun is the best prevention for ageing skin. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and plenty of sunscreen to block out harmful UV rays; this will help to preserve your skin’s natural collagen supplies for longer. Anti-ageing injectables such as BOTOX® injections can also be used to relax the facial muscles to help prevent lines caused by repetitive facial movements.
How Do Anti-Ageing Injectables Work?
When you move your face – laugh, concentrate, squint or frown – your muscles contract. After years of frequent contraction, combined with environmental and lifestyle factors, lines and wrinkles form. Muscles contract due to a signal sent from the brain via nerves. BOTOX® injections work by interrupting this signal at the muscle, leaving them relaxed and unable to crease the skin.Also, as we age the fat pads in our face drop and move downwards, creating a sagging effect and folds in the skin. When fillers are injected at strategic points around the face, they lift the skin and smooth out folds.
How To Get Rid Of Wrinkles
Wrinkles, though inevitable, needn’t be permanent. There are a number of professional skin treatments designed to address fine lines and wrinkles – and even help prevent them. These include anti-ageing injectable treatments such as BOTOX®, dermal fillers, and treatments designed to strip back ageing skin and encourage collagen production, such as laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion and skin peels.
What Are Anti-Ageing Injectables?
Anti-Ageing Injectables involve injecting a medically developed solution into your facial muscle with a fine needle. There are different types of injectables, including fillers and Botulinum Toxin, commonly known as BOTOX® injections. Anti-Ageing Injectables relax the muscle to stop lines and wrinkles forming as well have lifting and filling areas. When administered correctly by a medical practitioner they can subtly smooth and soften the skin, restoring a youthful complexion.
