What is Botox?
Botox reduces the signs of ageing by relaxing the muscles of the face which cause wrinkles, providing a more youthful and smooth appearance.
Is it safe?
Used for over 20 years, it is a safe, effective treatment, with minimal side effects. Some clients may experience redness to the injection site, minor bruising, or headache. Ptosis (eyelid or eyebrow droop) is a rare side effect. All side effects will be discussed fully during your consultation.
Which areas are treated?
Dr Wooltorton will assess your skin and facial anatomy and tailor a treatment plan to suit you.
Usual areas include:
- Glabella (between eye brows)
- Crows feet (smile lines)
- Plus other areas
Charlotte also provides botox treatment for
- Sweating (hyperhydosis),
- Jaw reduction
How long does it last? When will I notice a difference?
- The treatment takes approximately 2-14 days to take effect.
- The affects of treatment are likely to last up to 4 months. With repeated treatments the results are likely to last for longer.
What to expect
Charlotte will assess your facial anatomy during the initial consultation in order to work out the best treatment areas for you. With a white pencil Charlotte will then mark out the particular areas of your face that will require injection, this is to ensure the Botox is injected with as much precision as possible.
Injecting usually lasts only a few minutes. Following injection, Charlotte will invite you back for a 2 week review. At this review stage, a top up can be administered if required.
