Botox Glasgow – Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Injections – Also Commonly Known As Botox.
Available at Ever Clinic in Glasgow.

Anti wrinkles injections are more commonly referred to as “botox”. However, just like hot tubs, not all hot tubs are jacuzzi’s and not all jacuzzi’s are hot tubs!

A common misconception about anti-wrinkle injections is that they completely eliminate all lines around the eyes, in between the nose and on the forehead. This is only a partial truth. Dynamic lines are the lines prevalent when we move our face, and static lines are the lines that are present when our face is not in motion. Anti-wrinkle injections directly treat the dynamic lines, and over time will soften the static lines.

In some instances, you can be treated on the same day, but for patients new to this treatment, or if there are medical complexities, a “cooling-off period” will usually be recommended, followed by a further planned appointment.

FAQ’s About Our Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

What are anti-wrinkle injections used for?

Anti-wrinkle injections – commonly referred to as botox – are used to reduce wrinkle lines to create a more rejuvenated, younger and more youthful appearance for patients.  Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process and as you get older, it’s likely that skin will start to get thinner and drier.  As a result of this, wrinkles and lines on the skin begin to form.  Furthermore, wrinkles can also form as a result of sun exposure, smoking, dehydration and genetic factors.

Are anti-wrinkle injections painful?

Anti-wrinkle and botox treatments are minimally invase and cause minimal pain.  Of course, it’s important to highlight that everyone experiences pain differently.  However, the average person is able to tolerate the needles really well without any issues at all.  Here at Ever Clinic, we also offer numbing creams before the injections to any patients who request it.

Is the treatment also referred to as 'Botox' in Glasgow

Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly referred to as botox in Glasgow.  Botox is the actual brand used that is often a lazily adopted term to decribe the overall procedure.  Anti-wrinkle injections is the correct terminology used for the procedure but the term ‘botox’ is widely used within the industry and by patients.  Here at Ever Clinic, we don’t use the brand ”botox” to deliver anti-wrinkle injections, we use Bocoture that has fewer proteins making the product much more pure.

What areas can be treated with Botox?

There are multiple areas that can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections.  Common facial areas where anti-ageing injections are used include between eyebrows and on the forehead.  Other areas also include the outer areas of the brow, perioroal lines – also known as smoker lines – and the muscles located around the mouth.  When you visit us for your initial consultation, we’ll discuss all your aspirations and what you’re looking to achieve with this treatment.

Are there any side effects to having Anti-wrinkle injections?

The risks and side effects of having anti-wrinkle injections are relatively minimal when done by a suitably qualified practitioner.  After the injections, patients are more than likely to suffer from mild bruising, swelling and redness from where the needles appeared in the skin.  Furthermore, patients may also experience temporary weakness in facial or treated areas.  Minor side effects subside in most patients after 24-48 hours.

What can I expect after the anti-wrinkle injection treatment?

You can expect to see the results of anti-wrinkle injections – also known as botox – as early as 3 to 4 days after injections.  However, most patients will have to wait up to two weeks to see maximum results.  After treatment and the following days & weeks, patients generally feel younger and happier.  Self esteem and confidence are also common benefits that patients brag about.

How long do the results from anti-wrinkle injections last?

The duration of anti-wrinkle injections can vary from patient to patient and depends on a few variable factors such as the treated area and how different skin types reach to treatment.  However, the full effects of anti-wrinkle injections typically last anywhere for between 3 and 4 months, and sometimes a lot longer in some patients.  After treatment, it’s important that you look after your skin in the best way possible to get maximum results.

Who shouldn't used anti-wrinkle injections?

Although anti-wrinkle injections – also known as botox in Glasgow – are popular for patients looking to temporarily remove or reduce wrinkles, there are particular types of people that we strongly recommend to avoid the injections.  If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you should NOT have anti-wrinkle injections.  Furthermore, you should also avoid this treatment if you’re taking certain medicines or if you suffer from a neuromuscular condition.  If you’re unsure if you’re the right candidate for anti-wrinkle injections, please call Ever Clinic today!

Will botox remove all lines and wrinkles?

It’s a common misconception within the industry that anti-wrinkle injections can remove existing wrinkles permanently.  The injections are used to only diminish and reduce their appearance by temporarily paralysing facial muscles that contract and cause wrinkles on facial area.  This is why ant-wrinkle injections are NOT a permanent solution and regular courses are necessary to achieve maximum benefits.

What is the aftercare advice for anti-wrinkle injections?

After you’ve had anti-wrinkle injections at Ever Clinic, we will give you thorough instructions on how best to look after your skin and achieve maximum results.  On the day of getting ‘botox’, you should relax for the full day, maintain a normal heart rate and avoid touching or applying pressure to the affected area.  Anti-wrinkle injections require little recovery time and you should be able to get back to normal day-to-day activities within 24-48 hours.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections (Botox) Glasgow – Frown & Forehead Lines

Frown Lines

Some of us frown, some of us frown a lot!

Those that do will tend to be more affected by frown lines. Especially those of us with fair skin who could be better at applying sun-protection.

What’s that you say.. “Sun, in Scotland?”.

Actually the sun’s rays pass through our thick clouds and damage the skin anyway. So sun-protection is important even with our climate.

A frown is causes by activation of our glabellar complex. Multiple muscles depress our inner brow, something that is important during our occasional day of sunshine.Regular use of this muscle complex gives us what are often referred to as our “11’s”.

Wrinkle relaxing injections finds its commonest use here. Not only can it make a significant reduction in these lines but there is now evidence that it can actually treat depression!

Forehead Lines

Forehead lines are caused by use of the muscle that raises the brow. Some individuals use these muscles more than others and, along with sun-damage and cigarette smoking, this causes formation of deeper lines as we age.

It is important that your practitioner is able to properly assess you and verify that use of prescription only medicine is appropriate and in your best interest. Unfortunately, when used in the wrong patient, the brow can drop, resulting in difficulty seeing out! Of course your practitioner will guide about different areas as they have an effect on each other.
