Dispelling the myths of Botox anti-wrinkle injections

07 February 2018

 

Botox injections have been around for quite some years now but some mystery still surrounds what they do and don’t do and even social media and glossy magazines confuse the issues.

At Woodford Medical clinic the doctors and nurse prescribers work tirelessly to correct the misapprehensions that their clients sometimes talk to them about and would like to share them with you.

 

Myth no. 1

Botox injections can make lips looks huge and unsightly as seen on some celebrities.

Truth

Botox injections are never used to enhance the size of the lip – however a dermal filler can be used in the lip area and when done professionally should result in a soft and natural enhancement.

Myth no. 2

Once you start having Botox injections you can’t stop otherwise you will look dreadful

Truth

There is nothing addictive about Botox injections other than the enjoyment of looking and feeling your best. When the effects begin to wear off it takes several week to totally disappear. Some lines and wrinkles once “re-educated” never actually reinstate themselves, this applies in particular to negative frown lines which respond really well to anti-wrinkle injections.

Myth no. 3

Botox injections make you look completely frozen and expressionless leaving you look like a plastic doll

Truth

Any reputable practitioner would never advocate the frozen look and clever and professional injecting should only make you look relaxed and refreshed as though you have had a really good holiday.

Myth no. 4

Botox injections can only be used to correct lines in the upper face

Truth

A truly experienced and skilled practitioner can also use these injections in the jowl and jawline to relax the platysmal muscle which pulls the neck and jawline down. This helps to sharpen the jawline, minimises the jowl and helps to keep the neck smooth and elongated.

Myth no. 5

This procedure can be performed by anyone including my local beauty parlour

Truth

At Woodford Medical we only use a tried, tested and licenced solution for our Botox injections.  It is a prescription only drug and therefore should only be injected by a medically qualified practitioner to ensure your safety. Your face deserves the very best treatment so put yourself in the safest of hands at Woodford Medical.

 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR 2018

THREE STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO KICK START 2018

We are probably all still recovering from an overload of Christmas pudding, too much alcohol and long hours slumped in front of the television during the festive holidays and have a vague slightly uncomfortable thought in the back of our minds that in the next couple of weeks we need to sort ourselves out.  Well at Woodford Medical we are here to help by giving you a couple of suggestions to make you feel and look better going into 2018.

 

1.    Even out stressed skin with IPL Fotofacials.

 
Rich food, excess alcohol and central heating can all play their part in making our skin look red, uneven in tone and texture, and scattered with little broken capillaries. IPL Photorejuvenation otherwise known as Fotofacials are recognised as the most effective treatment for the reduction of these annoying issues. Our Aesthetic Therapists offer a thorough skin consultation to establish your needs and if suitable will go on to recommend a course of Fotofacials which will restore the natural clear beauty of your skin and diminish the effects of a heavy party season!
 
 
 

2.      Deep cleanse your skin with DermaFrac.

 
The rich foods and excess alcohol that we mentioned above can also affect the condition of our complexions by loading it up with toxins which result in breakouts and a distinct lack-lustre look. By having a course of Dermafrac we can totally cleanse your skin from the outside in and restore its luminosity and glow. Dermafrac uses a combination of therapies including Microdermabrasion, Microneedling and powerful anti-ageing infusions of peptides penetrating deeply into the layers of the skin to give you firmer, smoother and healthier looking skin.
 
 
 

3.    Look smooth and relaxed with Botox anti-wrinkle injections.

 
Often the lead up to Christmas can leave us all looking and feeling a little tired and stressed this can carry over to the new year. If you would like to ease away the signs of a heavy party season then why not put yourselves in the capable hands of our highly experienced doctors or nurse prescribers who can restore the look of calm and tranquillity to your face by easing away the lines and furrows with Botox anti-wrinkle injections. These quick, painless injections can smooth away forehead worry lines, crow’s feet and frown lines and have you breezing into 2018 looking and feeling your best.
