BOTOX®

Anti-Wrinkle Injections (BOTOX®) in Bowdon, Altrincham

Often with age we develop fine lines, wrinkles and folds due to a reduction in the skin’s elasticity and ability to recoil following a muscle contraction.  This is often most noticeable on the forehead and around the eyes (crows feet) where the skin creases due to repetitive muscle contraction with expressions such as frowning and smiling.

With the use of Botulinum Toxin such as Botox® we are able improve the appearance of these lines greatly, creating a smoother more youthful look.

Botulinum toxin is a natural protein that works by inhibiting messages from nerves to facial muscles resulting in the muscles being temporarily relaxed and unable to contract. The effects usually last between 3-6 months however in some people the results often last longer.

Botox® is a very superficial injection and relatively comfortable. Numbing cream or ice can be used before hand to make the procedure almost pain free. The procedure itself often taken no longer than 10-15 minutes, however allow 45 minutes for consent, medical photography, numbing cream and aftercare advice. You may begin to notice results within 48 hours, by day 7 the full effects should be visible. Men can have Botox® too, they often require a slightly higher dose of Botox® as they have stronger facial muscles than women.

Botox® costs vary depending on how many areas you would like treating. The total cost will be given at your initial consultation and a deposit taken if you choose to go ahead with treatment.

Please be aware of people advertising “discount” Botox®. This is often administered by un-trained, non-medical practitioners using cheaper products. Botox is a prescription only medication and should only ever be administered by a medical professional who has undertaken specialist training.
