We all know it as Botox®, but that’s really just a brand name. It’s actually a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. It’s still a relatively taboo subject, but it shouldn’t be. Botox® has been used for over 25 years in medicine and there are very few serious side effects – it’s quick and almost painless now. Of course, Botox® isn’t the right treatment for everyone, but if you’re considering getting Botox® in Brighton then keep reading.
For those that aren’t familiar with the procedure, it’s a reversible blocker of muscle contraction and it can be used anywhere there is a wrinkle or pull caused by muscle contraction, most commonly in the face (forehead, frown and laughter lines). It stops the muscle from moving, which eliminates pull on the skin.
Botox is brilliant; it can be used to improve the overall texture of the skin, to reduce excess sweating from the armpits, to prevent migraines and tooth grinding, and even to slim the jaw.
There is zero commitment
It is possible to simply have the treatment done once in Brighton and, if you don’t like the results, there is no problem with not having it done again. The effects will usually last around three to four months the first time.
It’s quick and easy
There is very little downtime, just the potential for some bumps on the skin for about 20 minutes afterwards. It’s important to bear in mind that it doesn’t kick in until five to ten days post-treatment on average, and you may need an adjustment to get the best results so never miss your review appointment at our Brighton clinic. So, if you want to have it ahead of a special event or wedding, then make sure you organise your appointment accordingly – at least a month in advance is best!
