Botox, or line and wrinkle treatments have been used as a cosmetic treatment since the late 1980’s and have revolutionised the industry, making a treatment with no recovery time and very few risks available to all. Lines and wrinkles are a natural and unstoppable part of the ageing process.
While they are inevitable they can be prevented and reduced. Wrinkle relaxing injections can combat both fine lines and deep wrinkles. At The Smile Clinic, Colchester Dr Prashar offers Facial Aesthetics treatments to reduce wrinkles and expression lines between the eyebrows, across the forehead, creating a smoother skin and younger appearance; although these areas seem to be the most popular areas to have Botox, an increasingly popular treatment is the botulinum brow lift, a technique used to create the impression of a higher brow arch and reverse the drooping that often creeps in with increasing age.
The procedure is relatively quick, usually taking no longer than 30minutes
Most patients feel well after the procedure, sometimes the area may be red and slightly raised for about an hour post treatment however a full recovery is expected within 12-24 hours. You can return to work as normal after the procedure.
On average it takes approximately 2-14 days for the results to become noticeable, however at our Essex based clinic we offer everyone a review after 2 weeks to ensure the desired results have been achieved. Any tweaks or top-ups can be carried out at the 2 week review to ensure the optimal result.
Very occasionally an allergic reaction and infection can occur. After the procedure you may experience bruising and sometimes a drooping of the brow can occur. Your clinician, Dr Prashar will discuss any concerns you have with you at consultation.
