Botox Anti-Wrinkle Injections Leeds & Bradford
Botox anti-wrinkle injections consultations are carried out prior to receiving your injectable treatment as a face-to-face meeting with a qualified prescriber as the products used are prescription only medications (POMs)
This is a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax, consequently smoothing out wrinkles. It is quite simply the UK’s most popular medical cosmetic treatment for the removal of wrinkles.
Botox injections help tackle signs of ageing by temporarily reducing muscle activity that leads to lines and wrinkles. Regular treatments every 12-16 weeks are recommended as muscle activity gradually returns.
Prescription only botox leeds medication
Anti-wrinkle injections are a Prescription Only Medication (POM) and fall under strict prescription and storage criteria.
Anti-wrinkle injections employ a purified protein (botulinum) to relax specific muscles so they’re unable to contract, preventing them from creasing the skin.
When injected into targeted areas in small doses, this purified protein has a signal-blocking effect which stops the nerves from communicating with the muscle.
Thus pausing that repetitive movement, relaxing that muscle, and in turn, softening those visible lines on the face.
Botox anti-wrinkle injections improve the signs of ageing
Not only can botox injections significantly improve the signs of premature ageing but an anti-wrinkle injection also plays an important preventative role.
So, If a muscle can’t contract then it can’t make an expression, like a frown or an eye squint, stalling future lines from forming earlier than they might naturally.
And Anti-wrinkle injections are a particularly targeted treatment; the protein we use can only influence the movement of the muscles beneath the lines where it’s been injected so the surrounding muscles of the face move naturally as normal.
Anti wrinkle treatment areas
- Firstly 1 area being glabella lines, the “11” lines between your eyes (frown lines) or the Orbicularis oculi (crows feet)
- Secondly 2 areas being frown lines and crow’s feet or frown and forehead lines (frontalis)
- Thirdly 3 areas being frown lines, forehead and crow’s feet.
Please note: The forehead cannot be injected without the frown lines also being injected due to how the facial muscles work and may cause the appearance of a heavy brow.
The brands of anti wrinkle injections used by Dermadays Aesthetics are BOTOX® by Allergan, and BOCOUTURE® by Merz.
Your personal Anti-wrinkle injection requirements will be discussed at a pre treatment consultation with our registered prescriber.
Anti wrinkle injections do not have an instant effect and muscle activity can take up to two weeks to reduce and true results to be seen.
You may notice gradual muscle movements begin to return after the 6-8 week point. Regular anti wrinkle injections are essential if you wish to maintain results.
