Botox

We are very proud to have won an award in this treatment for WhatClinic Customer Service 2016/17.

Wrinkle relaxing injections, commonly known as Botox, are the world’s most popular anti-aging procedure due their effectiveness at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. Botox works by stopping nerve cells sending signals to muscles, helping them relax and in turn, improving the appearance of wrinkles.

Here at Skin Southeast, we have a deep understanding of facial anatomy. You can be sure that Dr Pradnya will leave your skin looking naturally refreshed and full of expression and mobility thanks to her bespoke administration technique.

Wrinkle relaxing injections can also be used to reduce bruxism (teeth grinding), hyperhidrosis (excess sweating) and the appearance of visible neck bands (platysma bands) that can cause the appearance of turkey neck.

We actively encourage patients to seek independent medical advice before having wrinkle relaxing injections. All of our wrinkle reducing treatments are carried out by Dr Pradnya who has treated hundreds of patients and only after a thorough consultation process.

Botulinum Toxin A can be injected on the face and body such as:

  • Forehead
  • Frown lines in between brows
  • Eye area
  • Mouth
  • Nasal area (bunny lines)
  • Neck
  • Armpits (excessive sweating/hyperhydrosis)

Wrinkle softening is a straightforward procedure. We simply use a fine needle to inject painlessly into specific areas to smooth out those lines and wrinkles.

Although these injections have an excellent safety record, we shall, of course, discuss potential side effects during your initial consultation.

Botox can also be used to eliminate gummy smiles and can help treat teeth clenching by injecting the Botox® into the Masseter muscle to relax it.

A full medical history is taken for anyone contemplating this treatment. You will be required to fill out a medical form to rule out any conditions that might contraindicate a treatment. The vast majority of healthy people, who are not pregnant or breastfeeding, are suitable.

Although these injections have an excellent safety record, we shall of course discuss potential side effects during your initial consultation.

Generally the effects last on average 4 months though this can depend on one individual to another depending on their metabolic rate, stress levels and if they are on certain medications.

Sometimes it is common to see small raised bumps at the injection sites but these should go down within 20-30 minutes.

It is also quite common to experience a mild headache and in certain cases very mild flu like symptoms. These can be treated with over the counter painkillers.

Wrinkle softening is a straightforward procedure. We simply use a fine needle to inject painlessly into specific areas to smooth out those lines and wrinkles.

It normally takes about 10-14 days to see the full results of the treatment. Occasionally you may require a top up injections at your 2 week review appointment. The overall result is a fresher more relaxed face.

With regards to the armpits, you notice within a couple of days.

It’s recommended that you wait until your previous treatment has worn off before having more wrinkle relaxing treatment.

This treatment can be combined with other treatments such as facial fillers to make your skin look even younger and fresher.
