Botox in Cheshire

Botox in Cheshire

As we get older, the skin gradually starts to dry, get thinner and lose its elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles on the face are caused by many factors, including; the natural ageing process, facial expressions (frowning, smiling, pouting etc.), smoking, stress, sun exposure and dehydration.

At Renew Medical Aesthetics we use both Botox® and Azzalure Botulinum products. The type of product used is dependent upon the specific patient as each treatment is completely bespoke to individual needs and requirements.

This treatment is never permanent and lasts for 3 to 4 months dependent upon the area and person.

Botox®

Botox® is a compound (neurotoxin) of botulinum toxin type A and an injectable treatment is also used for treating fine lines and wrinkles, excessive sweating and frown lines.

Azzalure

Azzalure, also a compound (neurotoxin) of botulinum toxin type A and an injectable treatment is also used for treating fine lines and wrinkles, excessive sweating and frown lines.

Botox® FAQs

Botulinum Toxin (often referred to as Botox) is a natural purified protein, which relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles to create a smoothed, rejuvenated appearance.

When injected into the muscle it temporarily blocks the chemical signals that make the muscle contract. Only small quantities are used and only the injected muscle will be affected.

Botox has an excellent safety profile. It is used in a variety of therapeutic areas and is one of the few treatments that can be given to children over 2 years of age (for non-cosmetic purposes).

It has been actively used for cosmetic procedures for over 15 years in tens of thousands of patients worldwide and has U.S FDA and European approval.

Very low doses of the toxin are injected into specific muscles. This relaxes the muscles and prevents contraction. It is the repeated contractions of these muscles that have caused the skin to crease and fine lines to appear.

The nerve impulse is blocked from reaching these muscles and the nerve simply relaxes or goes to sleep. This relaxation enables the skin to repair and the lines smooth away.

Different brands have different characteristics and patient benefits. Occasionally, patients that have been having this type of treatment for sometime can become resistant to its effects.

Using different brands of Botulinum Toxin ensures that we always have an alternative should this happen.

In addition to treating Hyperhidrosis, it can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles and sometimes Migraine (migraine headaches), Blepharospasm (eyelid spasm) and facial spasm.

Superficial bruising occurs in a few cases, this will disappear after a few days. There is a small risk of eyelid or brow droop, which are reversible after a few weeks.

All these will be discussed and explained in depth at your consultation.

You should see the effect start to work over the days following treatment and should be fully developed after 2 weeks.

We instruct you to do some facial exercises for a while after treatment. This improves the way in which Botulinum Toxin affects muscle movement and helps maximise the effect.

You will have a follow up with one of our nurses 2 weeks after treatment to review results.

For line & wrinkle treatment, the effects can last anywhere between 3- 4 months. For excessive sweating treatment, effects can last up to 9 months.

Renew’s B’tox treatment prices are based on gender, treatment type and the number of areas treated.
