The Uses for Botulinum Toxin
Clients chose Botox because of its wonderful ability to address signs of ageing that are caused as the face moves.
Ageing comes to us all and there are multiple causes, one is that linear that appear as we change expression become ever-more visible.
Botox addresses these, it works by blocking the nerve signal to the muscles that cause the contractions – and lines.
Botulinum Toxin is a suitable treatment for:
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Lip lines
- Crows feet (wrinkles around the eyes)
- Slimming the jawline
- Lifting heavy eyebrows and sagging eyelids
- Downturned mouth (sad look)
- Dimpling chin
Botox can also be a treatment for tackling excessive sweating such as under the arms of the forehead. A further use can be in combatting chronic headaches and also helping to reduce jaw clenching and grinding teeth and reducing the gummy smile.
When used for anti-ageing – and this is the most common usage – Botox may be combined with other treatments such as dermal fillers or skin peels.
Using treatments in combination can have a truly transformative impact, creating the look of a full, deep plane facelift but with none of the expense, invasive surgery or lengthy recovery period.
Skillful application ensures the results appear natural, without the look of a frozen face, lines and signs of ageing minimised, but the person still looking natural – a great version of themselves.
What Is Botulinum Toxin
Botox is a form of injectable and is often confused with dermal fillers, although the two are quite different.
As mentioned, Botox works by blocking specific nerve signals to muscles. The skill of the practitioner is therefore crucial – targeting just the right nerves and ensuring the right amount of Botox is applied, ensuring results that have an impact but also are not vastly over the top.
Botox works on lines and signs of ageing that appear dynamically, as we change expression or move our face, for instance lines on the forehead, around the eyes or the mouth.
Dermal fillers meanwhile, as the name implies, fill in deep lines or scarring such as acne scarring. The fillers can also be used for addressing an issue such as a ‘weak jawline’.
Botox and facial fillers are often used in conjunction ad they address different signs of ageing, thus ensuring that a client does not have some aspects of ageing tackled but not others.
The client however does not need to be an expert on which treatment should be used for which sign of ageing, this is where a consultation is key. This is a chance to discuss the areas that you would like to have addressed and the expert to suggest the best course of action.
Stunning Results with Botulinum Toxin
Superb results are possible – this if you choose a leading clinic with ave Face accreditation and a proven track record.
At Time Clinic, we produce results that are natural yet make a difference – we want the client to look younger, rejuvenated, healthy and refreshed, but still like themselves.
The reaction of friends and family will ’wow! You look great’ and not ‘oh, have you had work done?’
The Importance of a Consultation
It is possible to simply turn pop with some and have injections there and then – but without a consultation first how can there be any certainty that the results will be as the client hoped for?
Applying high standards means treating facial aesthetics with the same care as would be applied to any other treatment and this extends to ensuring that the service offered will deliver the results the client is hoping for.
The consultation is a chance to discuss what you are looking to address and the expert to them make a recommendation – it might be that botox alone is suitable, our that a combination of treatments might produce the profound change sought.
It is key to work in partnership. Often, the person visiting us will have an idea that they wish too target signs of ageing but not be certain how this should be achieved, or they may have a preconception that might need polite reexamining.
Dr. Bawa works with people to ensure the procedures they have, including Botox, deliver the results sought.
The process is not simply picking from a menu of available treatments, instead it is finding a way for the results desired to be achieved.
