Looking for an anti wrinkle solution? Here are the 4 things you should know about Botox

Botox is the B word that still seems to be on the top of everyone’s tongue when it comes to anti wrinkle or anti aging treatments. There’s a lot of information out there on the topic, but do you know the basics? If you’re interested in a non permanent anti wrinkle solution that will leave your skin fresher and with a rested youthful glow, Botox is a safe and effective way to go.

Gathering information on what you can expect before your treatment is always a great way to make an informed decision, here are four of our most asked questions before we treat a patient.

How long will the treatment last?
On average, between two and four months. Although the treatment is not permanent, how long your fillers will last depends on a number of factors such as your skin type, age and lifestyle.

As Europe’s number 1 Aesthetic Clinic, Thérapie Clinic advise that some simple aftercare tips can prolong the effects from your treatment. Top of these tips is to avoid things such as smoking, excess alcohol, sun exposure and stress – which can all help break down collagen faster, decreasing the longevity of Botox. Thérapie also recommend the use of a good antioxidant serum and an SPF 50 also.

Will I see immediate results?
It varies by patient, but as a rule expect to see results within 2 – 5 days as the muscle beneath the skin of the frown line relaxes. Once it does, the difference will be noticeable, especially to you as you know every inch and line of your own face. Results should be subtle and natural, making you look well-rested and more youthful.

Is bruising normal?
Yes. After your treatment it’s very common to see some small injection related reactions like swelling, bruising, redness, itching or discoloration. These typically resolve within 2 to 10 days. If you can try not to use anti-inflammatory drugs or aspirin before or after your treatment as these will almost always cause bleeding or bruising. Finally it’s not advisable to exercise (except for walking) for 24 hours after the procedure.
