At STORY Southwell, Nottinghamshire we offer treatments only using the premium product Botox® by Allergan. Results last between 3-5 months and all treatments include a free 2 week follow up appointment to ensure you are happy with the results.
What can you expect from Botox® treatment?
Before treatment a full medical history and consultation will
be carried out ensuring you are suitable for treatment and
a bespoke plan will be put together. You will then be
asked to perform some simple movements such as raising
your eyebrows or frowning so we can see exactly which
muscles are causing the fine lines and wrinkles.
Very superficial injections are given just under the skin- we only use the finest gauge needles to ensure maximum patient comfort and reduce any risk of bruising. The treatment takes only a few minutes and after you will have small raised bumps at each site which will disappear within 20 minutes. Often many patients have this treatment in their lunch break and return to work after without anyone knowing anything has been done!
It take a maximum of 14 days for maximal results to be reached but we find many patients experience results within a few days following treatment. Following treatment you should avoid exercise or vigorously rubbing the face for 24hours to ensure the Botox® is not moved from the accurate points it was placed.
Frequently asked questions about Botox® treatment
What can Botox® be used to treat?
Botox® is used to relax exaggerated facial expression which softens fine lines and wrinkles. It can be used to treat frown lines, crows feet, horizontal forehead lines, jawline slimming, chin dimpling and in the neck to lift. Botox® can also be used to treat the medical condition of excessive sweating known as hyperhidrosis.
What can I do after treatment?
Following treatment the main thing is to not touch the area for 12 hours. Other things that should be avoided include strenuous exercise, applying makeup (for the rest of that day) and taking anything that may encourage bruising such as aspirin.
