How does the Botox treatment work?
Botox Kent consists of a number of steps, one of which includes injecting botulinum toxin into the problem areas. This has the ability to calm and relax the small facial muscles that are the cause of expression lines. The injection will gradually block the nerve impulses under the skin creating a smooth effect and texture. Different areas of the face can be treated such as forehead lines, lines around the mouth area, crow’s feet and the top lip which is also acknowledged as where smokers can suffer lines. There are also other areas of the face which can be treated, however these are usually the most common.
There is normally a lack of pain when the injection is inserted. The process is usually quick and can last for a duration of 5-10 minutes. This treatment also does not need the requirement of an anaesthetic prior to the procedure. Typically, the after effects of Botox are clearly visible and results can be seen within the range of a few days. The time frame of results is usually between 4-7 days. However, the Botox treatment is not permanent, therefore the results will gradually disappear over time. For a long-lasting effect it is recommended to repeat the procedure every 3 months for the maximum effect.
