Botox and Dermal Fillers
From smoothing out wrinkles to stopping excessive sweating and treating migraines, these are some of benefits of Botox injections carried out at Baddow Hospital.
Botox can temporarily erase or reduce horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines, and crow’s-feet. The injections slow muscles that contract hundreds of times a day, eventually etching lines in the skin. Botox can also lift the corners of the mouth that sag with age, smooth out the “pin cushion” look in some chins, soften smoker’s lines around the mouth, and soften vertical neck cords.
Like most injections, Botox can be slightly painful, especially between the eyebrows. Some doctors offer topical anesthesia ten minutes before the procedure or ice the area to numb it.
Botox varies from patient to patient, but good results usually last three and a half to four months.
Results begin to show in a couple of days and develop gradually over the course of two weeks.
A good result will leave you looking fresher, more cheerful, and perhaps younger.
Treating migraines with Botox
Botox treats migraine pain by blocking the sensory nerves that project the pain messages to the brain, as well as relaxing muscles, thus making them less sensitive to an onslaught of pain.
Treating excessive sweating with Botox
Botox treats excessive under arm sweating, you can normally expect the results to last 3-6 months. Treatment will reduce sweating under the arms significantly and in many cases, perspiration is reduced by more than 90%. Injections are relatively painless especially when a topical numbing cream is applied prior to treatment.
Dermal Fillers are popular non-invasive treatments that are also carried out here at Baddow Hospital. Fillers make it possible to restore volume to hollowed areas, to contour your face and to tackle fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal Fillers can add definition to your face and are particularly effective in creating more prominent cheeks, fuller lips and a fresher smoother appearance.
