Soften The Appearance Of Lines And Wrinkles

Wrinkle Relaxing Injections 

If you are looking for natural-looking Botox in Sheffield, we can help! Following a consultation, wrinkle relaxing injections (commonly referred to as ‘Botox®’) are used to soften the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles that most commonly form with age. Areas most often treated for best results include:

 

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes

  • Horizontal lines across the forehead. 

 

If you would like more information about Botox treatment at one of our Sheffield clinics, please fill in the contact form and we will email you a comprehensive information leaflet.

 

Botox® is a brand name for the naturally occurring protein derived from Botulinum Toxin Type A. It is a prescription-only medication, and the administration of Botox® is a medical procedure, which should only be carried out by a medical professional trained to do so.

 

A consultation with our nurse practitioner must be undertaken prior to the procedure. Our nurse practitioner is also an independent nurse prescriber and can, therefore, prescribe the Botox for you if the treatment is deemed safe and suitable for you.

 

When injected, this effective treatment relaxes the underlying muscle thereby softening and preventing further development of expression lines, to restore a more youthful, well-rested appearance.

 

As the full effects of wrinkle relaxing injections take up to 14 days to develop fully, clients are advised to return for a free review appointment to ensure their treatment goals are achieved. Should more Botox be required, it is administered at this time at no additional cost. Individual results may vary.

Frequently asked questions about Botox...

What is Botox?


‘Botulinum toxin A’ (commonly referred to as Botox) is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. In a purified form, as is the case with many medications such as Penicillin for example, Botulinum toxin is a very safe, effective treatment. It is not only used in cosmetic clinics, but also for a number of medical conditions, including migraine and excessive sweating. Licensed brands of botulinum toxin A include, Botox®,Azzalure®, Bocouture®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®. All types of Botulinum Toxin are prescription only medicines (POMs) and should only be prescribed by doctors, dentists and nurses with the prescribing qualification, following a face to face assessment and consultation.




How does Botox reduce the wrinkles?


Botox causes muscles to relax, by blocking the transmission of chemical messages which tell the muscle to contract. Without these messages, the muscle stays in a relaxed state until the ‘messengers’ recover. As the muscle is relaxed, the skin above it becomes smoother. The muscle recovery takes approximately 8 to 12 weeks on average, which is when you start to see movement returning. The aim of this treatment is to reduce the movement of certain muscles causing expression lines in the skin. It may not cause the lines themselves to disappear completely, this will depend upon the quality of your skin. Deep lines may take time to be reduced over a course of treatments. The objective of the wrinkle relaxing treatment is to improve the appearance of the lines, not necessarily completely freeze the muscle. If we can achieve animprovement in the line’s appearance without complete paralysis of the muscle then you benefit from continued use of subtle facial expression, which gives a much more natural looking result.




Does Botox hurt?


At DermaLuxe Aesthetics, we use the smallest needles available that are safe to use with Botox.The smaller (and thinner) the needle, the more comfortable the treatment is. As a very fine needle is used the treatment is very well tolerated with no need for anaesthetic. Most people say it just feels like a little pinch in the skin.




Are there any risks or side effects?


As with all injectable treatments, there is a small risk of bruising, swelling, and redness at injection sites, which resolves quickly. Other rare, temporary side effects include, but are not limited to; allergic reaction, asymmetry of expression, drooping of the eyebrow or upper eyelid, headache, sensation of tightness or heaviness. Again these are very uncommon if you are being treated by a qualified medical professional, and are expected to resolve spontaneously within weeks.Your practitioner will provide aftercare advice designed to minimise risk of adverse effects and ensure you get the best results from your treatment. Caution - If you are planning to attend an important event such as a wedding or special occasion, and if any adverse event such as bruising or a drooping eyebrow would be unacceptable to you, please consider booking an earlier appointment date.
