BOTOX® is the trade name for a substance injected into the skin which inhibits muscle movement and prevents wrinkles from developing or getting worse.
These injections are commonly used at our clinic here in West Didsbury for clients who come to us from throughout Manchester, Cheshire and the wider North West of England.
The treatment works by blocking nerve signals to the affected muscles around the injection site. The muscles become more relaxed, slowing their activity which, in turn, reduces the tell-tale lines of ageing.
The most commonly treated areas are the frown, the forehead and the smile lines, otherwise called the 'crow's feet.’ Whilst our clients might select just one of these areas to be treated, there are times where we would recommend treating all three areas at once, to give a more effective, all-round refreshed appearance.
Our skin is unique and maintaining the desired result will differ from one person to another but, as rule of thumb, BOTOX® treatments need to be repeated every 3 to 6 months.
Dr Rose and Mirella will be pleased to discuss the best options and course of treatment for you.
Botox - Frown Lines
This is one of the areas most commonly treated with BOTOX®. A constant or strong frown may result in a serious appearance and also can cause one or two deep permanent lines often called the ‘elevens.’ Relaxation of this area results in a gentler softer appearance and the elevation of the eyebrows with a resulting younger look.
