The many uses of Botox


As part of the natural ageing process our skin becomes dry, thinner, loses its elasticity and is unable to bounce back, which results in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles that create an aged appearance. Many people enjoy ageing gracefully whilst others wish to maintain a youthful appearance for as long as possible. If you are affected by your lines and wrinkles then you need to find out about Botox in East Sheen with our dentist Dr Alexis Zander.

Botox in East Sheen is a cosmetic procedure designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boost your self-confidence and restore the youthful appearance of your skin. Botox is suitable for adults of all ages, used by patients in their 30s to prevent the development of lines and wrinkles and patients later on in life to reduce the appearance of existing lines and wrinkles on the face. It is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures across the world thanks to its simplicity, convenience and pain-free results. It helps you achieve natural looking results in comparison to undergoing plastic surgery. It is tried and tested and could be the ideal solution for you.

Botox for cosmetics and medical treatment

Botulinum is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum which prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine at nerve endings, causing muscle weakness and paralysis. Used in small doses and administered by a qualified and a highly experienced practitioner like Dr Alexis Zander, Botox in East Sheen can be used for a range of cosmetic and medical purposes. As well as improving the aesthetic appearance of your face, Botox can be used in the treatment and prevention of migraines by injecting it into the head and neck, it is used for excessive sweating by injecting it into the skin and it can be used for urinary issues such as incontinence by injecting it into the bladder.

Fine lines and wrinkles

For reducing fine lines and wrinkles Botox can be injected directly into the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and around the mouth. These are the places which are most prone to lines and wrinkles due to the expressions that we make with our face throughout the day. You may have a specific area of concern or you may wish to have Botox in all of the above areas, depending on your individual requirements and your personal preferences. Dr Alexis Zander will be able to help you make an informed decision that will allow you to achieve excellent aesthetic results.

The procedure itself will take between 10 and 20 minutes. A topical anaesthetic may be applied to the target areas prior to the injections to prevent any discomfort. Most people achieve optimal results within 2 to 7 days and these results should last between 3 to 6 months, after which you can book another appointment for another dose of Botox. Over time you will need less regular treatments and you will notice that your lines and wrinkles become less noticeable. Find out about having Botox with Dr Alexis Zander today.
