WHAT IS BOTOX?

Botox is used for cosmetic purposes to smooth or soften the fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions, as well as for medical purposes in reducing certain nerve impulse problems, including spasticity and clenching of muscles.

Controlled amounts of Botox are directly injected into the muscles to weaken them temporarily. The mechanism of the toxin causes temporary muscle paralysis by stopping the neurotransmitter from reaching the motor nerve terminal. This stops the muscle contraction which in turn cause wrinkles to relax and skin to soften, creating a more youthful appearance.

 

Results are noticeable from 3-14 days after treatment, and last an average of 3-4 months.

Botox can be used on the following areas:

How does it work?

Because of the way our muscles work in the face, we have to treat multiple areas together.  Whilst I do offer to treat just one area on its own, it has a knock-off effect on other areas and isn't as effective. Second, you leave the untreated areas to eventually wrinkle - and once those wrinkles appear, you often can eliminate them. Prevention is always better than the cure.

Very simply, we have 2 types of muscles on our face - elevator muscles and depressor muscles.

Elevator muscles lift up and depressor muscles pull down.

These 2 types of muscle work in synergy with each other as one acts a 'push' and the other a 'pull'.

This means that if we inject toxin into a depressor muscle, it will paralyse that muscle allowing the elevator muscle to lift.

If we inject into an elevator muscle, then the depressor muscle will have free reign to drop/pull down.

If we are clever and strategic as to where we inject the toxin, we can manipulate this process of allowing certain muscles to lift, and others to pull down. This is why we cannot just inject in 1 area.

So by injecting into both the forehead (frontalis) and eye area (orbicularis oculi),  we can allow the forehead to lift giving us a little brow lift which will give a more youthful and rested look.

It will also smooth out the eye muscle; thus eliminating the crows feet!

What Areas Can I Have Injected?

I'm an advanced botulinum toxin practitioner so I'm trained to the highest level in injecting toxin around the face and body.

Because of this, this sets me apart from other practitioners in Norwich, Norfolk in that I will inject all other areas of the face as part of your service under one fee.

This means that even if you come in for the standard '3 areas' (frown, forehead and crows) if I feel I can improve your overall look by injecting the lower face, I will add that in complimentary.

Once I open up a vial of toxin, that toxin is yours, so we may as well use it all up the best we can, otherwise it gets wasted.

If for example you have a bit of a gummy smile (where your top lip disappears when you smile), we can relax that muscle with toxin so your lip covers your gums when you smile next.

I can offer those clients who have had lip filler, a 'lip flip' - which is where the top lip is pushed up and out a little more to compliment the filler.

 

The platysma bands that run up your neck and grip onto the jawline, get a bit slack as we age and this tends to pull down the jowl - not something anyone wants!

By injecting this area, we can tighten the jawline helping to pull it back making us look younger, fresher and more youthful!

Why Inject Other Areas of the Face?

We all know about injecting toxin into the 3 main areas of the face; frown, forehead and crows feet, but what about the other areas of the face?

Why would we need to inject anywhere else?

What does injecting toxin into those areas do to our face and overall look?

Below explains the other areas of the face that I can inject as complementary and part of your standard botox treatment plan, why it can help you and what it will achieve for you:

Smile/Marionette Lines - these are the muscles that are just either side of the chin (depressor angularis oris).

By injecting in this muscle, it will help lift the jowl area as this muscle wants to pull down on the jowl and also the corners of the mouth.

Dimpled Chin - as we age, the chin muscle (mentalis) curls up. By injecting toxin, it relaxes the muscle and pulls it down a little; which is more pleasing and prevents the dimpling we often see.

Jowl Lift/Tightening - injections in the platysma hand will tighten the jowl. The platysma hand is also a depressor muscle and that pulls down on our jawline.

Bunny Lines - these are wrinkles that appear on the bridge of the nose. The lines often become more prominent when smiling and can convey a false appearance of distaste. A couple of injections in the nasalis muscle will stop lines forming here.

Nose Slimming/Lift - By carefully injecting into the wings of the nose, we can temporarily reduce the action of the nostril - which gives a slimming effect due to the reduced muscle movement.

Nasolabial Fold Softening - my favourite injection! If you have heavier folds, botox here will vastly soften and smooth these bumps out to make your nasolabials much softer and less harsh.

Gummy Smile - If, when you smile your top lip folds up and under exposing your teeth, we can greatly reduce this with a few key injections above the lip. Particularly useful if you are planning on have lip fillers as more of your lip skin will be present yielding a better result.

Lip Flip - This pops and flips the upper lip out and looks amazing with clients who have had lip fillers!

Face Slimming/lifting - injections of toxon along the side of the face will help to lift and contour that area nicely.

Other Areas - £350 each

Masseter (teeth grinding/bruxism/migraines) - £350 - if you suffer from teeth grinding/bruxism with pain in the jaw, and/or migraines, toxin in the masseter muscle which is situated at the corner of the jaw near the ear, can help alleviate the pain associated with this. As a side benefit, it can help slim the appearance of the face as the hypertrophic masseter can give a square appearance to the jaw. Toxin relaxes the muscle causing it to atrophy - hence the slimming effect.

Underarm Sweating - £350 - otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, is excessive sweating under the arm. Toxin under the arm temporarily prevents the hyper-stimulation of the eccrine sweat glands. By blocking this signal, the result has a high success and satisfaction rate. The effects of this can last between 6-12 months, sometimes more.

Nefertiti Neck & Jowl Lift - £350 - this is the star of the show! The 'Nefertiti Neck Lift' is slowly making a come back! When we relax the upper face on our clients for years and years and forget the lower face muscles aka our depressors - they start to become hypertrophied and pull down on our lower face skin.

When collagen and elastin decreases with aging, the muscles pull down to create: pre-jowling, soft and saggy jawlines, turkey necks and no jawline definition.

Toxin in. this area will produce an all over tightening effect to the entire neck area giving a much smoother and elongated neck - hence the name; 'Nefertiti Neck Lift'
