Over time, as we age, the way we look will naturally change and many people will go on to miss the youthful look they used to have. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is usually the part of the ageing process that many people dislike the most and often, people find themselves searching for a solution to eliminate these new features on their face. Thankfully, these days, there are many different treatments and procedures that you can consider. 

From daily creams and facials to surgical procedures and fillers, the beauty industry provides people with lots of ways they can attempt to reverse the signs of ageing. One of the most commonly known treatments that is used to target fine lines and wrinkles is botox and it is incredibly popular. 

What is botox?

Botox is the name that is most commonly used for the procedure whereby you inject a specific toxin, Botulinum toxin, into particular areas of your body to weaken and paralyse the muscles. It has various uses but is frequently used in cosmetic procedures.

Why do people get botox?

The most common reason why people get botox is to smooth out lines and wrinkles, usually in the face, such as crow’s feet and frown lines. Depending on the areas you’d like to target with the botox, you may need multiple injections to get the desired look. Botox can however also be used to treat conditions such as excessive sweating or a lazy eye, it can also be used to help prevent chronic migraines too.

How long does botox last?

Many people think that botox is permanent but, this isn’t actually the case. Usually, you can expect botox injections to last for around three or four months. You won’t see the effects of botox straight after the injections either, on average it takes about two or three days to start working and around two or three weeks to see the full effect of the procedure. You can have botox multiple times however, you do need to be aware that it can stop working if you have it too often.

Where is botox used?

When being used for cosmetic reasons to target fine lines and wrinkles, you can expect people to inject botox into these areas; 

  • Crows feet – these are the lines that are found at the outer corners of your eyes 
  • Frown lines – you will find these on your forehead 
  • Glabellar ‘11’ lines – these are lines that sit in between your eyebrows
  • Bunny lines – you may see these horizontal lines on the sides of the top of your nose 
  • Smokers lines – these sit along your top lip 
  • Smile lines – these are also called laughter lines and they sit at the sides of your mouth
  • Chin wrinkles – it can also be used for chin dimples too
  • Platysmal bands – these are prominent muscles found on the neck 

Different people will want to target different areas and a professional will be able to advise on the best places to target to help you achieve your desired look. 

Who can inject botox?

Similarly to lots of other cosmetic procedures of this kind, you can expect lots of different clinics to offer botox. However, you must ensure that the person completing the procedure is suitably qualified and experienced. It is essential that they know exactly what they’re doing and that they’re able to safely inject the botox for you.

I enjoyed my first envy facial immensely with the lovely Stuart. The results after only one treatment were amazing. My skin felt squeaky clean & definitely had a nice glow to it. I'm already looking forward to starting my course of microneedling facials. The whole team at Dermoperfection have a wonderful energy around them and make the whole experience feel fantastic ?

I can honestly say I’ve always been very very happy with the service and treatments I’ve received at Dermoperfection. A very professional and polished team who really know their stuff and how to make you look great. The proof of this is I often get mistaken for 10 years younger than I actually am so that’s a sign my treatments have been highly effective! Thank you Dermoperfection! x

I have been going to Stu and the team for about 18 months now and I honestly would not go anywhere else. Stu and the team are so professional, approachable and attentive. Stu always listens to my concerns about my skin and always knows what to do. He is so knowledgeable, experienced and I know I'm in good hands. I have been the most confident I have ever been since going to Stu. He really is a genius when it comes to aesthetics and works to a high standard. He will also be very honest if you don't need anything doing or will offer an alternative which also saves money. You can tell he's really passionate about what he does and it certainly shows in his work. I always feel like a million dollars when I leave the clinic!!! I am always recommending people and they have said exact same thing! Thank you!!!!
