Getting a non-surgical enhancement like Botox is, for many people, the boost they need to put themselves into the world in a new way to open up opportunities that were previously unavailable. If you think that facial aesthetics will have a positive impact on your life then the next step is becoming well informed about what will happen and making the right choice of practitioner. When you choose Botox in Richmond at Face-Station, we offer you plenty of advice on treatment and give you all the information you need to make an informed choice.
Guidelines from the General Medical Council that sets standards for medical practitioners in the UK state that you need to be well-informed, have time to consider your decision and you should expect to not be pressured in any way to undergo treatment. We understand the sensitivity that is required around these procedures to ensure that you make the decision to get the enhancements you want from a strong and healthy place.
Once you are happy to go ahead, you and your practitioner will have a detailed conversation about your needs at our clinic in Richmond. Botox is primarily used to smooth the lines between the eyes, around the mouth and on the forehead and you can choose to have it in one or all of these areas. It temporarily relaxes the small muscles that cause lines in the skin. Botox is injected directly into these areas to achieve this. The process should not be particularly painful. It can cause a little discomfort but the vast majority of people find this easy to bear. The full effect of your treatment will materialise over the course of the next week to two weeks. The effect should be noticeable but also subtle enough to allow you to conceal the fact that you have had work done should you wish to.
Everyone is different but the effects of Botox typically last three to six months. After this you will need to book another appointment for Botox in Richmond to continue to enjoy the same effect. Your practitioner will give your guidelines on the treatment interval you need to observe in order to get the best results over time.
