More about Botox injections

 

There are a number of professional skin treatments designed to address fine lines and wrinkles and even help prevent them. These include anti-ageing injectable treatments designed to strip back ageing skin and encourage collagen production, other treatments can also help such as laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion and skin peels.

 

Botox injections relax the muscles in your face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox is not permanent and usually lasts up to four months. In London, the cost of Botox injections can vary between £100 to £400 for each treatment.  Botox injections for cosmetic reasons are not available on the NHS. Botox injections are usually performed in a doctor’s office where the doctor uses a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into your skin or muscles. Botox treatments are relatively safe when performed by an experienced doctor and the number of injections needed depends on many factors including the extent of the area being treated. 

 

Botox injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. However, Botox injections are also used to treat conditions such as lazy eye, bladder dysfunction, eye twitching, and chronic migraines.

 

Botox injections are used to treat:

 

  • Cervical dystonia
  • Lazy eye
  • Muscle contractures
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Chronic migraine
  • Bladder dysfunction
  • Eye twitching

Possible side effects and complications include:

  • Pain, swelling or bruising
  • Headaches
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Droopy eyelid
  • Cockeyed eyebrows
  • Crooked smile
  • Drooling
  • Eye dryness
  • Excessive tearing

Select your Botox treatment doctor carefully

 

At Harley Fitzrovia Health Private Medical Centre, our doctors have experience in administering Botox treatments.  Book an appointment with one of our skilled and properly certified doctors who can advise you on the procedure and help determine if it best suits your needs and health.

 

What to consider before getting Botox injections.  If you’re thinking about getting Botox injections, make sure the person performing your Botox injections is a qualified and experienced medical practitioner.  Avoid practitioners who have no training or have only completed a short training course. When you meet the practitioner don’t be afraid to ask about their training, qualifications and experience.  

 

You should also consider any risks or possible side effects.  In certain circumstances, Botox injections are not recommended.  This may include if you have a skin infection. you’re unwell in any way, you have a neuromuscular condition, you’re taking other medicines, you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.

 

What having Botox involves.  Your face will be cleaned and botulinum toxin will be injected into muscles in your face using a very fine needle. You’ll need injections in different places, depending on the area being treated. You’ll be asked to move the muscles in your face to help find the best place for the injections.

 

Once completed, you will not see a change immediately. It takes up to 3 days to start working, and up to 3 weeks to see the full effects of Botox treatments. Your practitioner should be able to give you advice about what you should and should not do.  If you have Botox injections again, you should wait at least 3 months or it could stop working if you have it too often.  The risks of Botox injections are small if it’s done correctly by a qualified practitioner. Speak to one of our doctors about the risks and possible symptoms after treatment is completed.
