What Is Facial Aesthetics?

Facial Aesthetics is the trade name given to a substance that gets injected into your skin to inhibit the movement of muscles and prevent the formation of wrinkles. The name Facial Aesthetics or Botulinum toxin comes from the word “botulous” which means sausage. Facial Aesthetics has been used in dilute amount for several years in neurology, ophthalmology and for cosmetic cases worldwide. Facial Aesthetics in Borehamwood is now amongst the popular cosmetic treatments that help to get rid of wrinkles and improve your overall appearance.

Is It Safe?

Yes, it is absolutely safe to take Facial Aesthetics injections as you won’t get poisoning from them.

How Does It Work?

Injections are given into the affected area that temporarily keeps overactive muscles to sleep for nearly 4 months. The freezing of muscle is temporary and cannot be permanent. Thus, the treatment is known as Hibernation where the muscle hibernates temporarily.

Do The Injections Hurt?

As the needles are fine, the injected amount is very small every time. Some people consider it to be a small bug bite as sedation or local anesthesia is not needed.

Which Wrinkles Can Be Treated?

Commonly treated areas are forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet. However, the other areas that can be treated are lower eyelids, lips, neck, laugh lines, décolletage and chin.

Will You Be Able To Move Your Face Afterwards?

Yes you can, though it will be more restricted. The extreme movement of muscles that caused wrinkles will be prevented however, other facial muscles won’t get affected.

When Will You See The Difference?

The difference will be seen in 3 to 5 days though it will vary from person to person. However, the greatest impact can be seen after 2 weeks.

How Will You Look After The Treatment?

You will find slight redness around the injected area after the treatment. This will settle down after few hours. You may use ice pack to decrease redness and make-up can be applied on the treated area to cover the redness.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Facial Aesthetics in Borehamwood is a safe treatment however, there might be side effects though very rare. These include slight bruising on the injected area, slight headache and slight drooping of eyelids that would last for a week only. Since the effects of Facial Aesthetics are reversible, the side effects are usually temporary and last for a short time.

What Should You Avoid After The Treatment?

It is advised to avoid doing dynamic exercise and drinking lots of alcohol during the first 4 hours after the treatment. Afterwards, you can resume your normal activities.

How Long Will The Treatment Last?

You can achieve great results within 3 months in most cases with gradually diminishing effect in the following 3 months. With regular treatment, your muscles will be trained not to move too much so that you perform less treatment to keep facial muscles more relaxed. However, this might vary from one person to the other.

How Often Will You Have To Perform The Treatment?

Usually, people like to return every 4 months when they begin their injections, at first. Individuals with large facial muscles or expressive faces may need to perform treatment more frequently. People with regular top-ups usually need to go for lesser treatment as their muscles get retrained.

What Can Be Done If You Are Not Satisfied With The Result?

Though this is something unusual, you need to consider that the effects are reversible and you might get back your old wrinkles.

Can Anyone Be Treated With Facial Aesthetics?

Almost everyone can be treated with it. However, if you are pregnant or suffer from a neurological disorder like Parkinson’s Disease, then you are not the right candidate for it.
