The Aesthetic Clinic Guide: Your first Botox Treatment

The Aesthetic Clinic Guide: Your first Botox Treatment

Interested in Botox? We’ll go through it all with you in this comprehensive guide. From how it works, to results and target areas, there is a lot to know about these anti-wrinkle injections before going ahead with your treatment. Let’s start.

Botox explained

This injectable treatment is a tried and tested way to create smoother skin that lasts. It’s ideal for refreshing your appearance, creating a more youthful look, and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Areas for botox

Our clients here in Coventry love botox treatment. These popular anti-wrinkle injections can target existing concerns, with evidence that they can also prevent signs of ageing from appearing altogether. Treatment is typically carried out on the brow, forehead and around the eyes, but it can also be given around the mouth, such as targeting a gummy smile.

Botox as a medical treatment

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and bruxism (teeth grinding) can also be treated through botox. That’s because the treatment helps to ‘relax’ muscles through weakening signals from the nerves.

Results and longevity

With botox anti-wrinkle injections, results usually develop within a couple of weeks of treatment and last for between 3-4 months. But, it does vary between people. We can recommend a treatment programme that works for you and helps prolong results before they start to fade.

Treatment in short

The botox treatment process begins with a consultation at our aesthetic clinic here in Coventry. If it’s suitable for you, we’ll then go ahead with treatment.

* During your consultation, we’ll talk about any relevant medical history or concerns, explain the treatment in greater depth (for instance, pre-and post-care) and assess your skin. It’s also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and become a bit more familiar with our aesthetic clinic, staff and processes.

* On the day, we’ll prepare your skin with a numbing agent. We may also gently mark treatment areas with a special skin pen. The injections are delivered with a fine needle and we do everything we can to ensure our clients are comfortable throughout.

* We’ll finish with aftercare instructions, including ways to aid healing, things to avoid doing and steps you can take if side effects (such as swelling) do occur.
