Botox is one of the most popular and well-known treatments in the world. But, many people still are yet to find out what Botox actually does.
People have maybe heard of celebrities getting it, or possibly their own friends and family?
Well we spoke to Dr Adam about anti-wrinkle injections so he could help you all understand what having Botox does.
When Botox enters the body and is injected into a muscle, it temporarily paralyses it and stops it from moving and creating lines. In scientific terms
‘it activates a process called selective muscle denervation. This is when the neuromuscular junction – where the nerve and muscle meet – has its receptors blocked from acetylcholine: the chemical which forces the muscle to contract’
Dr Adam says
‘You can have varying degrees of a brow lift. You can have a very high lift or a soft lift. All depends on what you want, which would be discussed with you on the day’
It is VERY important that you go to a fully trained clinician.
Some people say they can feel heavy sensation or droopiness near their eyelids – that is because they have lost that ‘upwards pull’. Injectors have to be careful and thoroughly assess your anatomy and see how much you need before they administer the injection.
Dr Adam spoke to us about a woman he treated as she had treatment elsewhere that need corrected. It resulted in her having wonky eyebrows, which is down to poor injection techniques at another clinic.
Make sure you go somewhere safe like SkinViva.
