The above are the main injections in the treatment of wrinkles, each having slightly different effects and chemical make up to the other. At Firvale Clinic in Southampton we tend to use BOTOX ® for most of our treatments however should you wish to have a different product used this can be arranged. As the effects are more or less the same in the following description of the treatments you can substitute the BOTOX ® for any of the other compounds
Botox ® treatment is the injection of a very dilute solution of botulinum toxin into small muscles of the face to temporarily paralyse them thus smoothing out lines and wrinkles. The practitioner can be very exact in targeting what muscles they want to reduce the effect of, allowing the muscles which lift the face to work unopposed. Facial lines and wrinkles are targeted by relaxing the muscles in specific areas, particularly between the brows for vertical lines, on the forehead and around the eyes for crow’s feet. This does not give an expressionless mask like appearance because it is very specific and it is very important to maintain the correct muscle movements. This treatment lasts between 3 to 6 months and can be preventative. Botox ® has become very popular as a safe and effective method of dramatically improving the appearance and making the individual look more youthful.
Advanced treatments with Botox ® can be used on the lower face, to improve the jaw line, to raise the corners of the mouth and for lines around the mouth. It can also be used for vertical neck bands. This is one of the exceptions where we have found that Botox ® is only injection we would recommend for this type of treatment.
Botox ® can be used under the arms to reduce excessive sweating. This treatment typically gives longer benefits of approximately 6-12months
The combining of the Botox® type treatments with dermal fillers will also give excellent results and can be used as a method of filling in the deeper lines that the Botox® treatment cant smooth out. Examples of this are the deep lines in the nasal area and also around the mouth. The effects of these can be lifted out with fillers to give you the effect you want.
