As the skin ages it loses it elasticity, it’s ability to return to its normal resting state after movement of the underlying muscles, is reduced.
Over a period of time this causes wrinkles and lines. By using Botulinum Toxin A (Botox®), a nerve blocker which is injected into the muscles, we can prevent the muscles from contracting and hence prevent these lines and wrinkles from deepening.
The 3-4 months of relaxation this provides also helps these lines to partially fade and soften.
Consultation – 15 minutes
Treatment – 15-20 minutes
BOTOX® is a naturally purified protein that works as a muscle relaxant. It’s often prescribed by doctors in the UK to treat medical conditions such as chronic migraines, eyelid spasms, and even hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in the armpits, hands and feet).
You may need to repeat treatment approximately every 3-4 months over a 12-month period to maintain your fresh and natural appearance. Clinical trials report that some patients who’ve had treatment over 12 months only need further treatments once or twice the following year. Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
It normally takes 5-7 days for BOTOX® injections, brow freezing or crow’s feet freezing treatments to work. At The Aesthetic Studiol, we believe in helping you look great for your age in a completely natural and subtle way. We usually obtain good results after just a single injection.
Treatment usually takes around 20 minutes. If there’s a little bruising, you can easily camouflage it with makeup. There is no downtime and you can resume normal activities right away.
You read so many bad stories in the press – how do I know everything will be OK?
We’ve all seen the photos of celebs with all-too smooth, arched brows or a blank, expressionless face.
If you’re worried about frown lines, crow’s feet, or a sagging neck, it’s vital to put yourself in the safest possible hands to ensure the most effective yet natural of differences. Dr Madhu Lazarus, owner of The Aesthetic Studio, is renowned for natural looking results. Her light-handed ‘sprinkle’ approach involves using tiny, feather-light doses around the hairline to gently soften those unwanted wrinkles and lines.
We will explain everything in detail and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment, knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.
BOTOX® has an excellent safety profile with over 2.5 million users to date across the UK, France, Italy, Spain and Germany. The doses are very small and the risks are minimal. If any do occur, they’re temporary and just mild to moderate.
We cannot stress enough how important is it for BOTOX® injections to be performed by doctors and nurses with appropriate qualifications and expertise in a clinical setting. Dr Madhu Lazarus personally handpicks and trains all of our medical practitioners herself.
Many people find their procedure at The Aesthetic Studio more comfortable than expected. That’s because our medical practitioners are so highly skilled and precise; you should merely feel a mild sting on your skin that only lasts seconds. The procedure is simple to perform. Some people may experience slight bruising from the anti-wrinkle injections, but this will go away.
As we get older, it’s natural for wrinkles, brow furrows and forehead lines or a sagging neck to appear. This can often be due to weakened collagen in the skin because of too much sun exposure or natural gravity or because of excess facial movement or due to genetic pre-disposition.
BOTOX® can therefore be used to treat facial lines caused by the action of these muscles on the skin through wrinkle injections. It reversibly relaxes facial muscles to smooth those unwanted wrinkles and stop deeper lines forming. When done properly, brow relaxing and crow’s feet relaxing should never lead to a frozen, ‘caught-in-the-headlights’ look.
BOTOX® treatment can help by:
BOTOX® is a drug made from Clostridium botulinum bacterium. The BOTOX® injection is a purified protein derived from the toxin and is used in both medical and cosmetic procedures to treat conditions such as:
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
Smoothing of wrinkles
BOTOX® injections work by blocking the interaction between the muscles and the nerve endings. It is FDA approved for the improvement of fine lines and wrinkles.
