Putting on a brave face
The past year hasn’t been the easiest for many of us. With the pressures of the Covid-19 pandemic and other factors consuming our lives it’s been difficult to take so much care of our appearance and seek out treatments like Botox Dublin. Noticing the first visible signs of ageing – such as new wrinkles, creases or fine lines across your face – is never easy, and can be heightened through stress.
Luckily getting cosmetic treatments to help minimise the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles has never been easier, and can be a massive help in increasing your confidence levels, as well as helping you look your absolute best.
Is Botox treatment safe?
When some people consider Botox treatment they envision invasive and complex plastic surgery type procedures, but in reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Botox treatment, which uses a toxin called botulinum, has only been used in cosmetics since the late 1980s and is only used in very small, controlled quantities and by qualified professionals.
Getting Botox injections is a fast and easy process when done by professionals, and normally lasts just a few minutes as no anaesthetic is required. Occasionally Botox injections can cause some minor discomfort or bruising, but these should usually clear up within a few days.
What is the process of getting Botox?
If you’ve become concerned about the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines on your complexion and would like to do something to address this, the first thing to do is to contact a local, reputable provider and arrange for a consultation or appointment. At this appointment, a practitioner will ask you a few easy questions to make sure that the treatment can be carried out safely, as well as establish what areas of your face need treatment and how much treatment you require. After this, the qualified practitioner will then administer you with between 3-5 botulinum type A injections using a thin and minimally invasive needle.
What areas can be treated with Botox?
There are a number of areas upon your face where Botox injections may help reduce the visibility of lines or wrinkles. These include the upper face to target forehead lines, brow lines or bunny lines (lines at the top of your nose). Around the eyes is another area of your face which Botox injections could help reduce wrinkle visibility when targeted at crow’s feet (creases around your eyes), the tear trough (under your eyes) and your eyebrows.
Another area in which Botox injections could help reduce the visibility of wrinkles and make you appear younger is throughout the lower face in places like your chin line, to prevent dimples, or to target lipstick lines around your mouth. You can also get rid of wrinkles around your neck and jawline effectively through Botox treatment.
