Botox – Birmingham, Solihull, and Henley

The questions we get asked most frequently are about muscle relaxing injections and in particular Botox – which is actually a brand name. Botox is a naturally occurring substance that’s commonly used in aesthetics to help make our clients look more refreshed. It can smooth out facial expression lines including frown and forehead lines and crow’s feet.

MINIMISING WRINKLES WITH ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS

Ageing leaves a lifetime of experiences etched onto our skin. A few laughter lines help remind us of happy times though, unfortunately, it’s the wrinkles that become deeper and permanent and can leave us looking tired and older.

ACHIEVING A SAFE, NATURAL AND FRESH APPEARANCE WITH BOTOX

At Air Aesthetics we use Botox (or Botulinum Toxin Type A to give it its full name) and Bocouture.  Botox and Bocouture are one of only four FDA-cleared (US Food and Drug Administration) products for cosmetic or aesthetic treatments.  Combining these products with our wealth of experience and in-depth, ongoing training ensures that our clients always achieve a safe, natural and fresh appearance.

With pinpoint precision we treat the area requiring attention, reducing the movement of certain muscles by gentling relaxing them.  In return, the skin is allowed to recover and soften.

Muscle relaxing injections have been used safely for well over 30 years and are an extremely effective treatment to:

 

  • Smooth a furrowed forehead
  • Soften a deep frown
  • Greatly improve crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Reduce neck bands
  • Treat dimply chins
  • Lift a heavy brow
  • Slim a square face
  • Lift downward mouth corners
  • Improve Gummy smiles
  • Reduce nasal ‘Bunny’ lines
  • Assist with jaw clenching
  • Reduce excessive underarm sweating

IMPRESSIVE RESULTS AND NO RECOVERY TIME

During treatment, we will assess your face and expressions, discuss the issues you may have and mark out the areas which require treatment. We will advise you on which areas of your face are best treated with muscle relaxing injections and may suggest alternative and/or complementary treatments such as chemical peels or facial fillers depending on which areas of your face you wish to see improvements on.

During the treatment, which usually takes around 20 minutes, we will inject into selected muscles. Some muscles will require multiple injections during one session so do be aware that the treatment simply involves a series of small injections which are very quick and comfortable.

Muscle relaxing injections require no downtime. You’ll be able to return to your usual activities straight away. However, at Air Aesthetics we recommend that you wait at least seven days before having a HydraFacial or peel. You will also be given aftercare advice to ensure your treatment achieves the very best results possible.

You may notice the appearance of your wrinkles improves in as little as a few days, but it can take two weeks or more to see the full results and at Air Aesthetics we will see you for a complimentary top-up, if required, about two weeks later to ensure you achieve the natural look you’re after.

  • Also used to reduce neck bands, treat dimply chins and Gummy smiles
  • There’s no downtime post your treatment
  • The treatment usually takes about 20 minutes
  • Results can be seen in as little as one or two days but can take two weeks or more for you to see the full results

Now that I have my new hairpiece custom made, styled and designed for me personally – I could never go back to something ‘ready-made’. It gives me so much more confidence, I am not even aware that I am wearing anything. I don’t think of it as a wig – it’s just ‘my hair’.

Gills’ expertise, precision work, patience and understanding is amazing, her work is impressive – I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

I would recommend Optegra 100%. From the very first consultation to post op care I can honestly say I experienced first class service all the way. From consultant to admin, each person treated me as an individual. I found their professional manner reassuring in what for me was a life changing experience. In terms of the operation, I was informed of the process and expectations along the way. My experience was positive from start to finish

What Exactly is Botox?

Botox is a brand name. Its real name is Botulinum Toxin Type A and it’s basically a purified protein which simply works by blocking impulses to the tiny facial muscles so that they can’t contract as much and cause those unwanted lines.

Botox and Bocouture are one of a very small number of FDA-cleared products for cosmetic or aesthetic treatments. The FDA is the US Food and Drug Administration and it is responsible for protecting public health by ensuring the safety and efficacy of aesthetics products and medical devices (www.fda.gov).

Muscle relaxing injections were first approved for cosmetic / aesthetic use (for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe forehead lines) in 2002. The momentum continued in 2013 when Botox was approved for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe crow’s fee lines.

When Should I Start Using Botox or Bocouture?

The simple answer is you should only consider using if you’re concerned or uncomfortable with the appearance of lines and / or wrinkles on your face. Any aesthetic treatment, and when to have it, is a very personal choice. Choosing the right medical practitioner and the right product is essential for this treatment so please do plenty of research before you go ahead and book your treatment. Please remember that Botox and Bocourture are prescription medicine and should, therefore, only be administered by a qualified medical practitioner.

What Will Happen At My Appointment?

Before any treatment is carried out it’s very important that you have a full consultation with your practitioner during which there should be a detailed face to face assessment, clinical photos and a full medical history is taken in order to ensure that you are a suitable candidate.

DO ask to see before and after photos of clients, your practitioner has treated themselves and make sure the results are very natural and in keeping with what you want to achieve.

Did you know that Botox and Bocouture are prescription-only medicine? Now you do, it may seem an obvious point but only medically trained professionals such as Doctors, Dentists and nurses are allowed to carry out this procedure. Please make sure your practitioner is medically qualified and insured to perform the treatment as, unfortunately, we are now seeing lots of unregulated and unqualified beauticians etcetera offering this treatment illegally.

Remember that medically trained practitioners should hold an up-to-date GMC, GDC or nursing registration and undertake regular training each year to perfect and improve their technique.

During treatment, we will assess your face and expressions, discuss the issues you may have and mark out the areas which require treatment. We will advise you on which areas of your face are best treated and may suggest alternative and / or complementary treatments such as chemical peels or dermal fillers depending on which areas of your face you wish to see improvements on.

During the treatment, which usually takes around 20 minutes, we will inject Botox or Bocouture into the selected muscles. Some muscles will require multiple injections during one session so do be aware that the treatment simply involves a series of small injections which are very quick.

How Will I Feel After My Treatment?

Muscle relaxing injections require no downtime. You’ll be able to return to your usual activities straight away. However, at Air Aesthetics we recommend that you wait at least seven days before having a HydraFacial or peel. You should be given aftercare advice to ensure your treatment achieves the best results possible.

You may notice the appearance of your wrinkles improves in as little as a few days, but it can take two weeks or more to see the full results and at Air Aesthetics we will see you for a complimentary top-up, if required, about two weeks later to ensure you achieve the natural look you’re after.

What Other Health Or Skin Conditions Can Muscle Relaxing Injections Help Me With?

They can also help with migraine headaches, lazy eye, involuntary blinking and twitching of the eye and face, involuntary muscle contractions that can cause the neck to have constant movement, spasticity that comes from cerebral palsy, and even under arm sweating. Botox is also used on those with stiff or tight muscles due to a head or spinal cord injury.
