Dove Aesthetics: For Botox and facial rejuvenation treatments in Derby.
Is Botox painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, we may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the practice without downtime following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
Side effects associated with the injection could include localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising.
After treatment will I still be able to smile & frown?
Yes, definitely. Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
What will happen to my wrinkles if I don't continue treatments?
If you don't continue your Botox treatment then any facial lines and wrinkles will return over a period of time.
What problems can Botox treat?
Botox can treat a range of different problems including:
Frown lines can be seen as vertical and sometimes horizontal lines in between the eyebrows and are common in people who frown a lot or have been overexposed to the sun. To treat these lines, small injections are given in between the brow to give a softer, younger and happier look.
Forehead wrinkles appear as horizontal lines on the forehead which are more prominent when you raise your eyebrows. Not only can we treat these lines but we can also, if caught early (usually 20-30yrs) prevent them from forming as deep set wrinkles.
Crow’s feet are found in the outer corner of the eyes. They appear most prominent when smiling or laughing. They occur as the skin becomes less elastic with age combined with excessive sun exposure. Very tiny injections at the side of the eyes are very effective at smoothing out these aging lines.
Smoker’s lines appear around the mouth above the upper lip. They can occur in non smokers, but are often more prominent in smokers. With a little simple treatment we can help soften these lines to give you a softer more youthful look.
Botox® can be placed around the corners of the mouth alleviating the sad, drooping appearance that can occur with ageing.
Bunny lines are wrinkles at the top of the nose which can appear when squinting or frowning and can be effectively treated with Botox® injections.
Brow Lift with Botox®
Carefully placed injections can be use to lift the eyebrows to make the eyes look bigger, brighter and give you all together a healthier glow. We can help create beautiful contours to eyebrows that may be naturally quite flat or straight.
Can Botox help with a gummy smile?
Yes, a "Gummy Smile" is a phenomenon that when some people smile, their upper lip elevates too far above their upper teeth, exposing gums and producing an unattractive smile. This happen due to a number of causes which can be assessed by Your dentist/practitioner. One of the causes is hyperactivity of the muscle which elevates the upper lip. Occasionally, the gummy smile is also aggravated by a thin upper lip that further contributes to the problem by exposing the upper gum even more.
Simply and safely we can help correct your gummy smile with Botox® by reducing the muscles strong pull on the upper lip. To make a thin lip look fuller you may also wish to have some dermal filler treatment.
