Botulinum toxin, (commonly referred to as Botox®) is a protein used to treat certain medical muscular conditions, it is also one of the most popular, safe and effective cosmetic treatments in the world. It works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to muscle groups so that they become more relaxed and in turn this reduces, or in some cases eliminates, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin should be administered by a medical professional as it is very important to get the right dose in the right area to avoid asymmetrical results, muscle drooping, frozen expressions and potentially dangerous circumstances.
Full consultation prior to treatment is required. This is to discuss your areas of concern, potential complications and medical history. Our nurse prescriber will ascertain whether it is safe to prescribe your treatment of Botulinum toxin based on your consultation and if so, a prescription will be written for you and a date for treatment will then be made; this can be as soon as 2 days post consultation.
On the day of treatment, pre-treatment photographs will be taken for your medical notes, your skin will be prepared with an anti-bacterial/anti-viral cleansing solution. The area for treatment will be assessed and you will be asked to use your muscles (frown, smile, raise your eyebrows) so that we can mark up the muscles to be treated. The botulinum toxin will then be administered; this is usually quite a quick procedure.
Following treatment, you will be given both verbal and written after-care to take home and a review appointment will be made for between 2-4 weeks post-treatment date.
Your journey does not end there. SKINLAB is committed to excellent patient care, we are available for you to contact at any time post-procedure. Contact numbers will be given to you.
