Your first visit to an cosmetic clinic can be daunting. After watching several YouTube videos you have likely made your anxieties worse, but are sufficiently distressed by signs of ageing that you still attend the clinic for your appointment. So what happens next?
At Clinic@ the doctors understand you concerns and potential anxieties. During your consultation with the aesthetic doctors, your cosmetic concerns will be discussed. At the same time the doctor will get to know you, from your general health right through to your expectations. This will allow them to develop an appropriate treatment plan which is bespoke to you. The treatment plan aims to give you an idea about your potential aesthetic treatment options, products to be used, details about each treatment, and a proposed plan to cover the next 12 month period.
Treatment can be performed on the day. However, there is no obligation and you can be booked into another appointment to return for treatment when it is more appropriate for you. Non-surgical aesthetic treatments can involve the injection of products to relax lines and wrinkles or refresh and enhance features, so you should consider that you may have some redness, swelling or bruising following a treatment.
How does anti-wrinkle treatment work?
Are you hiding your forehead wrinkles with a fringe? Irritated by your frown lines? Feeling like you look angry all the time? These are all common concerns bothering patients in every aethetic blog have researched. Fortunately, these concerns can be reduced with non-surgical aesthetic treatments.
A chat with Dr Vikram helped us understand how Anti-wrinkle treatments work.
The most common and appropriate treatment for these areas is the use of Botulinum toxin (“Botox”). As an anti-wrinkle agent, it is commonly used to treat frown, forehead or squinting (“crow’s feet”) lines around the eyes.
Botulinum toxin (“Botox”) has been used in medical practice for many years, to help treat conditions such as migraines, over-active bladders, and muscular disorders just to name a few. Over the last decade the aesthetic use of this product has been increasing and being constantly refined. Now we can offer predictable, safe, and reliable treatments to treat patient’s wrinkle related anti-ageing concerns.
So back to the question, how does botox work? “Botox” treatments work by reducing the activity of the muscles, causing the expressions related to the development of lines and wrinkles. This process takes up to 2 weeks to have its desired full effect, with results lasting an average 3-4 months. Fortunately, these treatments are not permanent which allows individuals to return to their previous level of expressions (muscle movements) once the effect has faded. This also adds to their safety, as any unwanted effects will normally resolve themselves without need for further actions or treatments.
