Are you looking for an effective way to reduce wrinkles without going under the knife? If yes, then dermal fillers and Botox are said to be a good option to overcome this problem. At Clear Skin Clinic in London, our dermatologists provide a wide range of facial aesthetic treatments that have been designed to fight against premature signs of ageing with Botox, Juvederm fillers or the combination of both.
Botox is suitable for different areas that include – forehead lines, frown lines, treating crow’s feet and pockets under the eyes. The treatment involves using the purified version of botulinum type A toxin in the form of a gel that is delivered by pain-free injection. Many unwanted lines, wrinkles and folds that begin to appear as permanent fixtures on your face with age are caused due to repeated contraction of small facial muscles that show as wrinkles or lines on the skin. Some factors that contribute to these unattractive signs of ageing are smoking or spending lots of time in the sun without sun protection.
Botox works by relaxing the facial muscles, lessening the appearance of wrinkles, folds, lines and smoothing out the skin temporarily. Though these results seem to be temporary, you will usually enjoy them for three to six months depending on the treated area before you need to go in for the next treatment.
Botox treatment in London is quick and involves minimal pain. It requires five to ten minutes only per treated area which means that you can pop in for the treatment during lunch time. The results usually appear within the next four to seven days depending on the area treated.
Dermal fillers help in preventing visible signs of ageing. The natural collagen and elastin present in our skin diminish as we grow old. This makes your skin look thinner, looser and prone to wrinkles. During the procedure, hydraulic acid is injected into the problematic areas through a needle. The practitioner will be placing a series of injections into each area and then massage the area after the treatment. It does not require a long time to complete the treatment and is usually done within half an hour.
If you are considering dermal fillers and Botox, make sure you understand the kind of wrinkles you are trying to treat. This will enable you to choose the right treatment for your circumstance.
