When surgery is a step too far, facial rejuvenation with Botox® offers a fast and safe solution that can gently erase the signs of ageing, resulting in smoother, fresher looking skin. Botox® is a popular non-surgical treatment designed to smooth away the visible traces of ageing.
Our skin is affected by many different aspects of daily life. Some of these effects can be minimised by using a high factor sunscreen, keeping the skin and body well hydrated, eating a healthy diet and cutting out smoking, but eventually there comes a time when the skin begins to lose elasticity. Because it is exposed to the elements, the face is usually the first place to show signs of ageing, and fine lines and wrinkles will start to appear. This is where Botox® can help.
Treatment involves small simple injections to the areas of the face where frequent muscle activity has resulted in unwanted dynamic fine lines, most commonly the forehead, around the eyes and the between the eyebrows where we frown. This short 15-20 minute procedure can provide a noticeable reduction in lines and the effects normally last for 3-4 months. Regular treatment over time can lessen the presence of these unwanted lines.
At Arden House we take a natural approach, our experienced practitioners have an in-depth knowledge of facial muscles and anatomy and this results in a relaxed, smoother look where the face is still able to move and show expression. We avoid the frozen face look by carefully targeting the unwanted lines, while enhancing the natural features of the face.
Botox® is a safe, prescription-only procedure with no long lasting effects. It works by blocking signals from nerves to muscles so movement reduces and creases gradually diminish, as a result, it can take up to two weeks to see the full results.
At Arden House, as experts in facial injections and facial anatomy, our practitioners are well suited to deliver this kind of facial rejuvenation, and your treatment will always be performed to the highest level of clinical standards. These injections are not often painful, and if felt are similar to a small bee sting or pinprick. It is a non-invasive procedure and so normal activity can usually be resumed immediately. There are however a few immediate guidelines, you should avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours, remain upright for 3 hours immediately following treatment. and do not fly or exposure yourself to UV light for 48 hours. You may experience mild temporary bruising, numbness, or redness around the injection sites; this is often short lived and easily covered up with light make-up.
Repeated regular treatments can lead to the effects lasting longer and slow down the development of further or deeper wrinkles.
