Biting the Botox bullet – what you NEED to know before booking your procedure

People on your Zoom calls looking a little less tired than usual? Chances are that some, if not all of them have had a little help from the famous anti-fatigue buster that is Botox. As well as being renowned for fighting wrinkles, the injectable also gives a fresh dewy complexion that can leave even the most sleep deprived of us looking like we’ve spent ages catching up on a good night’s sleep.

And yes, there’s no doubt about it, Botox is the most talked about anti ageing treatment of the last twenty years. It’s use is well documented not only across celebrities, but now across our friends, family and our social circles. Unsurprisingly, by the end of this year it’s thought that over 1.5m people in the UK will have had non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatments. That’s no small figure, and it proves that any stigma around anti-wrinkle injectables or other aesthetic procedures is certainly a thing of the past.

So, if your skin is feeling a little fatigued, or if you’re worried about the onset of wrinkles, it might be time to learn more about the treatment. And here’s a few more reasons why.

There’s just not enough hours in the day
Skin in need of a little tlc? Sometimes there’s just no catching up on sleep that you’ve missed and it can start to show. And as we get older the skin around our eyes is one of the first places where the signs of aging shows. Fine lines under the eyes, Crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles – they are all the dreaded tell-tale signs of aging, and most of which are brought on by constant tiredness. With Botox you can achieve a well-rested, youthful look which is subtle, yet incredibly effective. In fact your procedure results will be obvious to you 2-5 days after your treatment and will last for up to four months – leaving you looking like you’ve had a great night’s sleep!

Tick tock
We can’t stop the clock on aging, but we have the power to slow it down.Lines get deeper and deeper with age, so if you start getting the procedure done early enough in a doctor led, professional clinic, you’re not going to need as much in the future – a win win situation! Botox, has been around for years but is still on the frontline of anti-ageing treatments. When injected in small doses into targeted areas, anti-wrinkle injections block the signals between the nerves and the muscles, causing the muscles to relax. They reduce the appearance of lines to produce a look that is fresh, more youthful and, most importantly, natural.

Bring back that dewy glow

Ah the elusive glow, the look we all want to attain, one that can be difficult to attain with just skincare. In fact, one of the main reasons why people get Botox is to try and reinstate their youthful glow. When injected Botox blocks the signals between the nerves and the muscles, causing the muscles to relax.This results in a reduction in the appearance of lines, giving a look that is fresh, more youthful and, most importantly, natural. So know that it is possible to reinstate that glow now! A lesser known fact is that Botox not only reduces wrinkles but it also replenishes lost volume, giving you a smoother, but naturally plumper appearance which is why it’s a great procedure if you want to get your natural glow back.

Time to bite the Botox bullet?
If you’ve decided to go ahead with your treatment then the next step is really important. Remember that although Botox is non permanent, it’s essential that your therapist is well trained, experienced and has the backup of a medical team in order for them to provide the best treatment possible, so it’s really important that you find the right clinic for your procedure.

We asked the team in Thérapie, Ireland and the UK’s No.1 Botox Clinic what potential patients should look for when in the market for the procedure.
Key to finding the best Clinic, is looking firstly at their overall professionalism and experience, Phillip McGlade, CEO of Thérapie, Ireland and the UK’s premium Botox provider says, ‘It’s important too to find out how long they have been administering the procedure. Most importantly, are they Doctor led? Look for a clinic that focuses on clients being treated by safe and experienced hands. Once medical professionals are administering the procedure you will achieve natural, beautiful results every time.

They also spoke about the importance of looking for a clinic who offer a one on one consultation with every client, ‘Any concerns that you might have about your complexion will be individual to you and you only. Always look for a clinic that offers a one to one consultation so that you can ensure that they assess your concerns and make a procedure plan based on what you want to achieve.’

Thérapie Clinic is Europe’s no.1 Botox Clinic, with over 40 clinics throughout the UK and Ireland. They are a highly experienced, Doctor led Clinic who have over the past few years treated many celebrities and well known faces in the UK, as well as everyday customers who know they can trust the Thérapie brand for a professional and quality procedure.

Time to relax and trust the professionals
Getting any aesthetic procedure can be daunting, but try to remember that Botox is a non-surgical, non-permanent procedure that is over in a few minutes and is virtually pain free.
The way Botox works is simple – it targets the muscles of facial expression by blocking the nerve signals to those muscles. Wrinkles are caused by your face making the same expressions, over and over again and Botox limits those expressions to potentially prevent wrinkles.

Phillip McGlade, was happy to put our minds at ease, ‘You’re in safe hands if you decide to trust team Thérapie for your anti- wrinkle injectables procedure. Our team at Thérapie Clinic perform hundreds of Botox procedures in a week, and we are experts at making sure you’re up to speed with everything you need to know from before to aftercare, as well as making you as comfortable as possible for your treatment.

After your procedure
Aftercare is a hugely important part of any aesthetic procedure and Botox is no different. There are a number of things you can do to maximise your results, and asking questions about what the Clinic recommends in terms of aftercare is essential and is often very indicative of their experience as a Clinic. Thérapie Clinic offers preparation and aftercare advice to all of their Botox patients, really useful advice for anyone interested in the procedure.

Putting that pep back in your step
Confidence is a huge positive that comes with any selfcare procedure and Botox is no different. If your skin is important to you, and this is something that you’ve been considering for some time, then it’s likely that the results of Botox will give you a little extra spring in your step.
