The Best Botox In Southampton

As time passes, we all get fine lines and wrinkles. It’s life.

But that doesn’t mean you have to passively watch this happen. Because there are actions we can take to reduce, or even remove, them.

Do you have wrinkles that you want to get rid of? Would you like to turn back time and look more like you did 10 years ago?

If so, we can help you! We have several remedies in our arsenal, and our favorite is Botox. 

It is by far the most effective remedy against wrinkles, and you are likely to see great improvements even after the first treatment.

Because of these incredible results (and its safety profile), it is the world’s most popular aesthetic anti-wrinkle treatment. 

At TreatMyWrinkles Southampton, we complete a Botox treatment in 30-45 minutes. 

Which means that you can come for a lunchtime appointment, get treated, and be back at work in less than an hour. And nobody could tell that you just got Botox. 👍

Who Is It Appropriate For? Are You A Good Candidate?

Botox is appropriate for anyone who wishes to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on their skin, plus for a number of other conditions. It is appropriate for all skin tones and for both men and women. Good candidates include:

People with moderate to severe wrinkles and lines that they want to minimize.
People as young as their 20s who want to use Botox preventatively to avoid the formation of fine lines and wrinkles in their 30s.
Those in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s who are bothered by wrinkles and want to maintain a more youthful appearance.

People looking for other treatments such as elevating the eyebrows, stopping excessive sweating, stopping teeth grinding and various cosmetic neck improvements.

Individuals in good general health without any neuromuscular diseases (e.g., myasthenia gravis) or serious chronic illnesses.

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are advised against using Botox, as its effects on the fetus or infant are not well-studied.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Exactly Is Botox?

Botulinum is a neurotoxin produced by a bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. This bacteria lives in the natural environment and can be found in forests, soils, lakes, animals, seafood, etc.

This substance has the ability to disable the ability of nerve cells to communicate with other nerve cells.

Given this effect, the medical industry started investigating whether it could be used for medical treatments.

Botulinum was first used in the late 1970’s to treat the eye disorder ‘crossed eyes’. It was then approved in 1989 for muscle eye disorders such as squinting, wandering eye, lazy eye, and twitching eye.

However:

When patients were treated, doctors noticed that the area around the eyes appeared more relaxed, and wrinkles were significantly reduced.

Which then set off further research into whether this substance could be used to treat wrinkles.

And the answer was yes!

It was granted approval for cosmetic purposes in 2002, and it has today become the world’s most popular anti-wrinkle treatment.

In addition:

Botulinum is used medically to treat more than 20 different muscular conditions, including eye squints, migraines, excess sweating, and leaky bladders.

Botox is the most popular Botulinum brand, but there are also several other ones.

Why Do We Get Wrinkles?

Fine lines and wrinkles are mainly caused by muscle contractions.

For instance, when you are upset or confused, you often draw your eyebrows together and downward. This causes the skin to fold, which results in what are called Frown Lines.

Similarly, when you lift your eyebrows, the skin on your forehead folds, causing Forehead Lines.

When this is done repeatedly, your skin will fold in the very same places. And when you continue to do this over several years, your skin will stop going back to its initial state. Instead, these lines will remain even when you are not making the facial expressions.

And as we age and continue to make the same facial expressions, these fine lines will often turn into more pronounced wrinkles.

Although muscle contractions are normally the primary source of fine line and wrinkle formation, other factors contribute as well. Such as stress, lack of sleep, smoking, pollution, a poor diet, and excessive sunlight.

How Does Botox Treat Fine Lines And Wrinkles?

When Botox (or Dysport, Xeomin or Myobloc) is injected into a local muscle, it prevents this muscle from contracting (or makes it less able to contract).

As this muscle will no longer contract, the wrinkle will no longer be expressed.

After the wrinkle has not been expressed for a few days, it will start to fade away, and the skin will revert back to its initial wrinkle-free state.

With time, the wrinkles will often disappear completely.

How Should I Prepare For The Anti-Wrinkle Treatment?

For the most part, you can continue with your regular activities before the Botox treatment. There are, however, a few things we recommend that you avoid.

It’s a good idea to avoid most painkillers 3 days before the treatment. During these 3 days, you should also avoid anti-inflammatory medications, blood-thinning medications, and alcohol.

The reason is that all the above are blood-thinners. If these are taken before the treatment, it may cause bruising and swelling around the injections.

If you smoke, we advise you to stop smoking for a week (or minimize it to the greatest extent possible) prior to the procedure. The toxins in smoke can interfere with both the treatment and the healing process.

We  also suggest that you refrain from consuming highly salty foods in the days leading up to the treatment. Excessive salt intake leads to fluid retention in the body, which can exacerbate swelling.

You can learn more about how to prepare for the treatment here.

What Should I Expect During The Treatment?

When you arrive, we will first make you feel comfortable and calm. We will then explain every step of the treatment, so you understand exactly what will happen.

Before we do the injections, we will cleanse your skin with an antiseptic.

If you want, we will then add a numbing cream to make the injections as painless as possible. Many clients, however, choose not to use numbing cream as the pain is tolerable. However, if you are very pain sensitive, you can choose to get this numbing cream.

It takes 20-30 minutes for this numbing cream to kick in.

Your clinician will then administer the Botox. This will only take a few minutes.

We will then keep you for a few minutes just to ensure that the treatment went as expected.

That’s it!

To learn more about what will happen on the day of the treatment, you can read this.

What To Do (And Not Do) After The Treatment?

After the treatment, you should be able to resume your day as normal.

However, there are a few ‘things’ you should be careful with.

We recommend that you avoid painkillers, certain medications, and alcohol for about 2 days after the treatment. This is to avoid prolonged bruising and swelling.

And we recommend that you be careful when touching the areas where the injections were administered. Particularly, we urge you to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for about a week.

We also advise you to avoid facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasions, etc. for about a week.

In addition, we recommend that you avoid strenuous physical activity for about 48 hours.

We also recommend that you don’t wear tight caps or hats, if this puts pressure on the area that was treated. This is to prevent the Botox moving from its intended location.

In addition, we urge you not to scuba-dive or fly during the 2 days following treatment. Changes in pressure can potentially move injections to unintended areas. Also, a tight scuba-diving mask around the injection can have a similar effect.

And lastly, be careful with strong direct sun exposure and high heat (sauna, very hot showers, etc.) for the next 48 hours.

You can learn more about aftercare here.

How Long Does The Procedure Take?

The entire procedure, from when you first step into the clinic until you are out, should normally take no more than 30-45 minutes.

Hence, you can come for a lunchtime appointment and be done. 👍

Does It Hurt To Get Botox Injections?

If you choose to move forward without numbing cream (as most clients do), you will probably feel some degree of pain when the needle penetrates your skin. However, this discomfort is tolerable for most people.

But if you want, we can apply a numbing cream to the area(s) where the injection(s) will be made. This will numb your skin so that you shouldn’t feel any pain.

How Soon Will I See Results?

The average patient will normally start to see some results after as little as 1-3 days.

However, it takes a little time for your skin to ‘settle’.

Therefore, the results will get better and better over the next few weeks and months. 

How Long Does One Treatment Last?

A Botox injection will normally last for 3-4 months.

After this period, the muscles that were treated will normally start to regain activity. If you are happy with the new look and you want to maintain it, you should consider treatments 2-3 times a year.

Also, with repeated treatments, many patients experience that they need fewer injections.

Are There Any Side Effects?

It is normal to experience some side effects from this aesthetic treatment. However, the good news is that they are normally very mild, and they typically go away within 48 hours.

These are typically minor bruising, redness, or swelling where the injection was administered.

Should you experience any other side effects, or if you experience bruising, redness, or swelling for several days, please contact us. 

Is Botox Safe?

Botox is highly potent, even in small doses. However, the doses that are administered contain mostly saltwater and only a very diluted amount of the toxin.

When given by a licensed and certified professional, it is considered a very safe treatment. It is also a non-surgical treatment, which means there is no cutting or opening of the skin. It is simply a quick injection.

Botulinum injections are one of the most extensively studied aesthetic treatments worldwide, and are approved for cosmetic use in about 100 countries. It has also been evaluated in more than 500 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

Will I Be Able To Move My Face After The Treatment?

Yes, you will be able to move your face.However, the local muscles that are injected with Botox will become fully or partially relaxed, meaning that the movement of these specific muscles will be reduced.However, all other areas of your face will be just like before, and you will not experience a ‘frozen’ look or have problems moving your face.

How Many People Get Botox Each Year?

It is estimated that about one million Botox treatments are administered every year in the UK alone. Worldwide, that number is estimated to be in excess of 100 million treatments.

How Long Has It Been Used For?

Botox has been used medically since the 1970s for conditions such as crossed eyes. It has been used for treating fine lines and wrinkles since 2002. It has seen rapid growth since 2002 and is today one of the preferred methods for treating fine lines and wrinkles.
