Anti-ageing Beauty Treatments in Winchester at Sparx Beauty Salon
The neurotoxin protein botulinum (often referred to by the product name Botox®) is one of the best known and popular non-surgical treatments for treating lines and wrinkles caused by smiling, laughing and frowning.
The treatment consists of a series of tiny injections which temporarily prevent the facial muscle contractions that cause lines and wrinkles. The results are visible within three to ten days and usually last between three and six months.
This is a safe and effective treatment for temporarily removing forehead wrinkles, ‘crow’s feet’, eye wrinkles, frown lines between the eyebrows, and sagging jowls. It can also have a lifting effect around the eyebrows and forehead.
Frequently Asked Questions – Wrinkle-Reducing Injections
What are wrinkle-reducing injections?
We use Azzalure® which is a highly diluted form of the neurotoxin protein botulinum. A miniscule amount will be expertly injected into selected muscles to temporarily relax those muscles.
How many ‘botox’ treatments will I need?
Most people have one treatment and return for a further treatment once it wears off between three and six months.
Do anti-wrinkle injections like ‘botox’ hurt?
Discomfort is kept to a minimum and we can apply a topical anaesthetic cream before treatment, if required.
When will I see improvements in my wrinkles?
Most people see the full effect between 3 and 10 days days after the first treatment.
How long will my wrinkles stay away?
The effect usually lasts for between three and six months, after which your muscles will regain their strength. You can, of course, return for regular treatments.
How safe are wrinkle-free injectables?
Botulinum toxin type A was introduced in clinical practice in the 1970s and 1980s to treat squints and blepharospasm. Azzalure® gained approval for cosmetic use in the UK in early 2009.
