What is Botox?
At our Nottingham based cosmetics clinic, we provide a spectrum of Botox treatments using the Botulinum toxin, (Botox), which is produced by Clostridium Botulinum bacterium.
This protein derivative of the toxin, when injected into a muscle, causes it to become weakened or inactivated. It stops the muscle from functioning by blocking the neuromuscular transmission, therefore it stops the chemical messages from the nerve to the muscle. The overall result is a reduction or elimination of fine lines and wrinkles around the treated areas.
What can be treated?
At our health and aesthetics clinic in Nottingham, we provide a range of Botox beauty treatments to address a range of problem areas. The main area of treatment is the upper face region. This is broadly split into three regions, the crow’s feet/laughter lines, glabellar region (frown lines), and upper forehead region (above eyebrows). More advanced treatments include nose lifts, chin treatments, ‘Gummy smile’ correction, chemical brow lifts (eyelid lifts) and even ‘jaw line’ reduction.
What happens during treatment?
When Botox is used for cosmetic purposes a small quantity of toxin is injected into the facial muscles. Treatment takes only 5-10 minutes to perform.
What can be expected after treatment?
The area may have some slight redness and swelling, which normally resolves within an hour. The treatment normally starts to take effect after 2-3 days with full effects seen between 10-14 days, but this may vary slightly with some individuals.
How long do the effects last?
The effects of Botox will normally last between 3 and 6 months, when you will start to notice an ability to move the muscles more freely.
How much does it cost?
Treatment cost start from £129.
