By far the most common use is as a non-surgical cosmetic treatment, to smooth wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming – known as preventative Botox®. The aim is to subtly lift key points using small amounts of Botox® to create a fresher appearance. All the muscles and structures of the face are linked, so you have to consider how they move together in order to create a natural look.
What is Botox?
Botox® is actually a trade name for Botulinum toxin, a neurotoxic protein that temporarily paralyses muscles when injected. When Botulinum toxin is injected into a muscle underneath the skin surface, it relaxes the muscle causing the overlaying skin to appear smoother, making it a popular anti-wrinkle treatment in the cosmetics industry.
What can Botox correct?
Botox Dubai only works on wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement. These are known as dynamic wrinkles, and are often called “expression lines.” The most common dynamic wrinkles that Botox® can treat are lines on the upper face, such as the “11” between the brows, horizontal lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. These lines are caused by smiling, frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions. Botox® will not work on fine lines and wrinkles caused by sagging or loss of plumpness in the face. These are known as static wrinkles. Static wrinkles include lines in the cheeks, neck, and jowl areas. Botox® is not a permanent treatment. Repeated treatments are necessary for continued wrinkle-reducing effects.
Some of the most popular areas to treat with Botox include:
The glabella (“Elevens”) refers to the small area of the forehead between the eyebrows. As we often use this muscle to create frowning, it can mean some of our most prominent wrinkles and grooves are formed in this area. Relaxing the muscle and the tension in this area can dramatically reduce lines and soften your facial features.
Elevation of our eyebrows causes transverse wrinkles and creases on the forehead also the elasticity of our forehead skin decreases as we age, the fat of our forehead decreases, and all causes the wrinkles to become deeper and stay. A small amount of Botox in few injections to this area can help to soften the forehead skin.
– Crow’s Feet
Or laughter lines appear around the outside of our eyes and as we age gravity brings down the tail of our eyebrows. Treating this area softens the skin outside the eyes and also elevated the tail of the eyebrow giving a fresher and younger look.
How long does Botox® last?
The results of Botulinum toxin start appearing only a few hours after treatment, with the full effect setting in at around the three day mark. Botox® is self limiting and normally lasts between 4 to 6 months and isn’t accumulative.
Botox treatment is administered through a series of precise and formulated injection points. The product is introduced to the face via ultra-fine microneedles. They are specially-designed to reduce the pain of the injection and to make your treatment as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We do, however, provide numbing cream or ice for patients, if requested.
The wrinkles injections themselves usually take a matter of minutes, but we may wish to monitor you for a brief period after your treatment, or consult you before treatment if it is your first time. This is to ensure that you get the right treatment for you, and that your safety is upheld at all times.
There are many different uses for Botox, including for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), for irritable bladder, migraine, stiff muscles and it is also used to treat cerebral palsy within children. It is incredibly safe and has lots of clinical studies and trials behind it to back its efficacy. For cosmetic treatment, botulinum toxin is used is small doses to temporarily relax facial muscles and prevent overuse. This in time will smooth facial lines and wrinkles and give a rejuvenated result.
