Botox® in Coventry
The most popular non-surgical procedure to treat wrinkles on the face are muscle relaxing injections, with the brand BOTOX® Cosmetic, leading the way. Botox in Coventry is an injectable substance that temporarily relaxes the muscle it is injected into.
Botox is one of the most requested cosmetic injectables on the market, and continues to make waves across the world. Anti-wrinkle injections are a form of muscle freezing injection and has long been the staple of most cosmetic and aesthetic clinics in the UK.
Anti-wrinkle injections are most commonly used within facial muscles in order to prevent lines and wrinkles developing through the normal use of facial muscles. Botox is also used for other issues such as to block sweat glands in order to prevent over excessive perspiration. However, its most popular use is as a muscle relaxant for the improvement of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, like crow’s feet.
Botox Uses and Treatments
Usually, Botox in Coventry is administered between the brows and around the eyes to diminish wrinkles and signs of ageing. Botox can also be used for facial and neck slimming but it can also be offered in some cases for the treatment of many health issues.
Results of this form of facial rejuvenation last on average from three to six months and top-ups are required to maintain or improve the end result. You can also combine muscle relaxing injections with other forms of skin or facial rejuvenation treatment, including dermal fillers like Restylane, or chemical skin peels, microdermadrasion, and carboxytherapy.
There has been an increase in the numbers of younger patients that are using anti-wrinkle injections thinking prevention is better than a cure, but generally it’s not recommended for patients younger than 35.
The majority of patients contemplating surgery are looking for the most natural looking result possible and anti-wrinkle injections can help you look more youthful without surgery.

- Your Aesthetician will give you specific aftercare instructions.

Botox – FAQ’s
How does Botox work?
Botox is often called a wrinkle relaxer, as it helps relax the muscles it’s injected into. This prevents the muscles from contracting (shortening and tightening), which helps wrinkles look softer.
What can Botox help treat?
Botox injections can be used for a range of concerns. Primarily an anti-wrinkle treatment, it can help soften the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles – and can be used in tandem with other treatments, such as dermal fillers. It can also be used to slim the face and neck. Finally, it can be used to help treat medical conditions, such as excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Do Botox injections hurt?
Some clients do experience tenderness during or after treatment, but this is usually short-lived. During your appointment, we can use a numbing cream or cold pack to help soothe the area.
Who is suitable for Botox?
Many people are suitable for Botox injections, but a consultation is always recommended to ensure it’s the right choice for you, and will create your desired results. Botox anti-wrinkle injections are not suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
