People in Rugby can now benefit from Renew Skin & Health Clinic’s professional Botox microinjections treatment which is ideal for the reduction and elimination of dynamic or expression wrinkles, such as glabella, deep, horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines; Botox is also very popular with lip augmentation, prominent jaw line reduction, and due to its highly versatile properties, it can also be used in the treatment of chronic migraines and hyperhidrosis in both men and women.

The bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces a toxin which after a thorough purification process becomes Botox. Despite the fact that in large amounts, this toxin can cause botulism, there has been discovered that small diluted amounts of it can be injected directly into specific muscles to cause them a controlled weakening. Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscles can no longer contract to such a high extent, causes the wrinkles to soften and fade away, as the injected amount also plumps the skin from underneath. After the application of a numbing cream, BOTOX is injected into the muscle with a very fine needle. The procedure is completely painless and safe and the effects start to be visible immediately after the procedure, but will require 7-10 days to settle completely.

The results of the Botox treatment usually last between 3-6 months or more, depending on the severity of the wrinkles, the amount injected and the patient’s skin’s capability to fully incorporate the filler. Some patients may come back for another procedure sooner because it always depends on their body’s rate of absorption. With all this taken into consideration, you will be able to notice that the Botox effects last longer after the following treatments due to the fact that it will occur an atrophy of the treated muscle and it will not contract so much, without affecting your general facial expression thorgh.

Here, at the Renew Skin and Health Clinic the injected quantity of botulinum toxin is very small, and the needles used are extremely fine so the entire procedure is painless and minimally invasive. By injecting the toxin directly into a certain muscle or muscle group, the risk of Botox spreading to other areas of the body is greatly diminished. Just in case, the specialist doctor can apply ice or an anesthetic cream to enhance the patients’ comfort during the treatment (15-20 minutes). There are no known long-term side effects caused by BOTOX injections. These are generally transitory and well tolerated. There may be some possible swelling, bruising and reddening of the area, but they will disappear after a few hours or the next day, the latest.

The Botox treatment does not require any downtime, so you can leave the clinic immediately after the procedure to resume your daily activities, despite the fact that there are some restrictions after the procedure: for instance, you mustn’t exercise or rub the treated areas so as not to spread the Botox, and you have to gently wash your face for the next 24 hours. All the information you need about the procedure or after care will be given to you by one of our GPs or specialists performing the consultation during which he/she will also assess your medical history and current health condition to prevent possible future risks or complications and ensure the optimum results you’re expecting.
