How fine lines are caused?
Over time, your face will naturally start to develop fine lines and wrinkles as collagen and elastin break down. These fibres help support the skin structures which in turn help to maintain a smooth looking complexion. When the collagen and elastin fibres break down, skin loses its strength and elasticity and lines and wrinkles begin to appear. Over exposure to sun on holidays, smoking, city living with high pollution, squinting at monitors and mobile phone screens – all these factors can take their toll on your skin. The stress of a busy life can accelerate the ageing process leaving your skin with tired lines and wrinkles. Most people first notice fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes and mouth.
Treating lines and wrinkles
Botox® is used to smooth and soften fine lines and wrinkles. If you have deeper lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers might be a more effective treatment for you. Microdermabrasion, skin tightening and facial peels are used for an overall rejuvenated, fresher appearance and can also be used to enhance the effects of Botox. To establish which treatment is right for you, you should first book an appointment with one of our Patient Care Co-ordinators who can discuss the best option for you to achieve a more rejuvenated look.
How does Botox® work?
It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles. The muscles then relax and can’t contract and, in turn lines and wrinkles relax too and begin to soften giving you a younger looking complexion.
What the treatment involves
Firstly, Botox® is a prescription only drug and at YHA, only our fully qualified doctors and nurses will prescribe and carry out your treatment. You will be treated with genuine FDA approved Botox® which is why you can expect the best results that last longer. The product is injected into the area to be treated using a very fine needle. It takes no more than 15 minutes and there’s just a little discomfort. There is no requirement for an anaesthetic so you can leave the clinic as soon as you are ready.
After your treatment and recovery
All we ask is that you have no alcohol on treatment day, avoid tilting your head forwards for a few hours afterwards and do not exercise for 24 hours. If you’ve any temporary discomfort, just take ordinary painkillers.
