Thinking of getting Botox in the UK? Here’s what you need to know
Getting Botox in the UK
So, you’ve decided that you’re quite interested in getting Botox. The UK has seen a surge in the number of people getting anti-wrinkle injections in recent years. This is hardly surprising as it’s become more socially acceptable and more widely available.
When you are over all the creams and potions that just aren’t doing much, it is a simple and effective non-effective option. The Botox injections relax the muscles at the treated areas so that any fine lines or wrinkles are smoothed out, leaving you with a fresher and more youthful appearance. But before making your final decision to go for it, here are a few things you might want to know first.
Before having Botox
There are a few precautions that you should take before having Botox. For example, we advise that you avoid aspirin and ibuprofen in the week beforehand to reduce any bruising that you may get. If you’re on any medications, you must discuss this with your medical professional in your pre-treatment consultation.
After having your Botox treatment, you will need to avoid certain things to ensure you get the best possible result. In the first few hours you should not lie down or bend over otherwise you risk the Botox moving to other areas of your face. Exercise also needs to be avoided for 24 hours.
At Therapie Clinic, we include a post-treatment consultation, so you are fully informed of everything you need to avoid. Don’t worry, though, there’s nothing that will make your life difficult and most things only need avoiding for a very short time.
Botox side effects are minimal. Some people experience a small amount of bruising at the sight of the injection. If this is uncomfortable, then you can take paracetamol.
What Botox can treat
There are several areas of your face in which you might start to notice fine lines and wrinkles. Botox for the forehead is a popular treatment. It can be used to treat any furrows that appear when lifting your eyebrows and for the frown lines between your eyes. Botox for crow’s feet at the corner of your eyes and lines running from the nose to the mouth are also popular.
If you are looking to banish fine lines from your face, then anti-wrinkle injectables can treat them.
The cost of Botox in the UK is based on the number of areas that you have treated with the injections. At Therapie Clinic, we offer three areas for the price of two at £199. If you wanted to treat bunny lines, this is just £49.
