Anti-Wrinkle Benfleet

Anti-wrinkle / Botox In Benfleet

Anti- Wrinkle treatments in Benfleet, Essex at Monika Advanced Aesthetics. Anti-wrinkle Botox procedure involves injecting small amounts of botulinum toxin into specific muscles in the face that are responsible for the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. The botulinum toxin works by temporarily paralyzing these muscles, which can help to smooth out the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

The procedure typically takes only a few minutes and involves several small injections using a very fine needle. The injections are usually well-tolerated and do not require anaesthesia, although a topical numbing cream may be applied to the skin beforehand to minimize discomfort.

The effects of the anti-wrinkle Botox procedure typically begin to appear within a few days and can last for several months, after which the procedure may need to be repeated to maintain the desired results.

It is important to note that like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with anti-wrinkle Botox injections.

Side effects

While anti-wrinkle Botox injections are generally considered safe, there are potential risks and side effects associated with the procedure. These can include:

  1. Muscle weakness: Botox injections can cause temporary weakness or paralysis in the muscles around the injection site.
  2. Bruising and swelling: Some patients may experience bruising or swelling around the injection site, which can last for several days.
  3. Headaches: Botox injections can cause headaches in some patients, although these are usually mild and go away on their own.
  4. Flu-like symptoms: Some patients may experience flu-like symptoms, such as fatigue, fever, and chills, after receiving Botox injections.
  5. Eyelid drooping: In rare cases, Botox injections can cause eyelid drooping or asymmetry, which can be temporary or permanent.
  6. Allergic reactions: Some patients may be allergic to Botox, which can cause symptoms such as itching, hives, and difficulty breathing.

Aftercare

After receiving anti-wrinkle Botox injections, there are several steps you can take to help minimize the risk of complications and ensure the best possible results. These may include:

  1. Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for at least 24 hours after the procedure. This can help prevent the botulinum toxin from migrating to other parts of the face.
  2. Avoid lying down or bending over for several hours after the procedure to prevent the botulinum toxin from spreading to other areas of the face.
  3. Avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and hot showers or baths for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
  4. Apply an ice pack or cold compress to the injection site to help reduce swelling and bruising.
  5. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to protect the skin from UV damage.
  6. Avoid using harsh skincare products or undergoing other cosmetic treatments that may irritate or damage the skin in the treated area.

It is important to note that the specific aftercare instructions may vary depending on the individual patient and the extent of the treatment. Be sure to follow our advice and contact us if you experience any unexpected side effects or complications after the procedure.


Alluzience In Benfleet

Alluzience is an advanced botulinum toxin-a new wrinkle-relaxing injection launched by Galderma (the world’s largest independent dermatology company). This innovative injection, which is the very first ready-to-use liquid neurotoxin in the UK has a registered trademark and was created by Ipsen. It is used to smooth stubborn upper facial lines and folds, which include improving the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows), otherwise known as frown lines. 

Unlike other BoNT-A products that require dilution with sodium chloride before they can be used, Alluzience allows for more precision with safe dosage accuracy because it doesn’t require any calculations. It is also free from human and animal-derived proteins such as human serum albumin and lactose because it is produced with novel production technologies. 

HOW DOES ALLUZIENCE WORK?

Alluzience injections are aesthetic medicines that stop the contraction of targeted muscles by blocking the transport of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine across the neuromuscular junction, located between the nerve end and the muscle fibre.

Unlike other standard botulinum toxin brands such as Azzalure, Xeomin, Vistabel, Dysport, Bocouture and Botox which take about 7-14 days to have visible effects, Alluzience kick-starts work as soon as 24 hours after injection.

For the lasting span, Alluzience lasts up to 6 months before a patient would be due for another session. This is another benefit it has over other botulinum toxins, as they last only three to four months before another session. 

ALLUZIENCE VS BOTOX

Alluzience is a new-to-the-market botulinum toxin type A that takes effect faster, and also lasts longer than other botulinum toxins.

Putting alluzience with other botulinum toxins(botox) side by side, its features may make it preferable to both doctors and patients. 

With its rapid onset time from as early as one day, its effects last for up to an astounding 6 months, as opposed to standard Botox that requires re-treatment every 3 months, meaning that you could be visiting the clinic only twice a year, saving both time and money.
