Botox is an anti-wrinkle treatment that works by blocking impulses to tiny facial muscles, thereby reducing the prominence of expression lines, and achieving a more youthful, radiant look.
All Botox treatments at Dr Nyla’s clinic in Cheshire are performed only by experienced medical doctors, as we believe patient safety is paramount. Dr Nyla helps combat ageing skin in her patients by providing a range of anti-wrinkle treatments using Botox.
You may lose tone and natural elasticity of the skin as you age, causing wrinkles, fine lines, and folds to appear. These can become more prominent with time, with defined crease lines appearing. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles, reducing their appearance.
Areas that Botox can treat include:
Frown lines – forehead and area between the brows
Crow’s feet – around eyes
Bunny lines – on the bridge of the nose
Necklines – horizontal ‘necklace lines’ and vertical ‘platysmal bands’ (Nefertiti Neck Lift)
Medical conditions – such as migraines, excessive sweating and facial flushing
“After years of being conscious of my frown lines I finally found the perfect person to fix them. I went to Doctor Nyla for my Botox and couldn’t be happier with the results.” – Charlotte Metcalfe MUA
Depending on the amount of areas being treated, a Botox appointment can be done in as little as 15 minutes.
Botox lasts for three to six months depending on the client.
During a Botox treatment, Doctor Nyla will use her specially developed technique to administer a controlled amount of Botox into the patient using a small needle. An optional numbing cream is available, but the procedure is relatively pain free.
Botox results can be seen after a few days, with the full effect becoming visible in around 2 weeks.
There is no downtime with Botox, although patients may be advised to stop taking medications such as aspirin prior to the appointment to minimise chances of bruising.
Botox can stop migraines before they even start, with treatments recommended every twelve weeks for maximum effect. This works by blocking the release of the neurotransmitters that are associated with causing pain, meaning that you no longer have to experience the severe pain of a migraine.
Botox can help with excessive sweating by blocking the signals that the body sends to stimulate sweat glands. It is injected into the skin, and the effects last for 3-6 months.
Botox can treat blushing of the face, neck and chest by blocking the signals between nerve cells that reach the skin and blood vessels. For those who suffer from anxiety and are embarrassed by their blushing, Botox can bring back confidence and significantly improve quality of life by removing this worry altogether.
Some people are self conscious about the amount of teeth and gum that is revealed when they smile. Botox can be used to minimise this by relaxing the muscle above the upper lip, restricting it from lifting as high.
Botox can treat horizontal 'necklace lines' and vertical 'platysmal bands' in the neck with a treatment known as the Nefertiti Neck Lift, restoring a tighter and youthful appearance of the skin on the neck.
