Botox is a name given to the toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and is an effective remedy for facial lines and wrinkles which appear due to age, stress and worries. Botox is usually used for skin treatments, to smooth frown lines or glabella on the forehead, between the eyes and at the base of the nose, offering a more youthful and vital facial appearance.

Botox is used at Renew Skin & Health Clinic in Leamington Spa because it can block signals from the nerves to the muscles. It prevents the over-active muscles from contracting and this causes wrinkles to soften and relax. That is why, the ideal candidates for this procedure are those who wish to see an improvement in their facial lines and wrinkles and do no to go for a more permanent solution, such as plastic surgery. For them, Botox is the perfect alternative. It is a “lunch procedure”, lasting only between 15-20 minutes, its effects are not permanent, despite the fact that after repeated uses, they start lasting for more than just 3-6 months, especially if the Botox microinjections are used prior to the moment in which the effects of the last session have completely disappeared.

The Botox treatment is also ideal for the reduction of crow’s feet wrinkles, deep horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, lip augmentation, jaw line reduction, and due to its highly versatile properties, Botox microinjections can even be used to treat chronic migraines and hyperhidrosis.

At the Renew Skin and Health Clinic we offer a first free consultation if you decide to undergo your Botox treatment at our cosmetic clinic. During the consultation, you have to be upfront and honest with your physician when you discuss about the treatment and you also have to present your medical history since you may not be the best candidate for Botox, because despite the fact that it is a safe procedure, there are people who are Botox resistant and in very rare cases there may be others who can be allergic to the toxin so, you may have to undergo a different procedure. After your physician discusses with you which area you want to treat and which facial muscles to inject the Botox treatment into, he/she will proceed with very small amounts into those places.

Some side-effects of the Botox procedure may include swelling, bruising, and some red spots which can be covered up with make-up but will disappear in a few hours, our practitioner making the best efforts to minimize them. In order to avoid any other complications, the Renew Skin & Health Clinic physician will offer you some indications, such as the fact that you should avoid rubbing or massaging that area and wash your face gently in the first 24 hours. Also, you shouldn’t do any difficult exercises or take antibiotics.
