More and more men have been attending The Aesthetics Room for various treatments. If you are a gentleman who is struggling with lines and wrinkles, come along for a consultation. Our team of experts will discuss what beneficial treatments are available and how we can help keep lines and wrinkles at bay.
How does it work?
We have a broad range of treatments available and can discuss your options during the consultation. One of the most popular treatments we use in Botulinum Toxin (Botox). It is a protein that stops chemical messengers sending signals to muscles in the face. Over time, wrinkles are formed due to overactive muscle movement. Botulinum toxin stops the movement resulting in a firmer, smoother look.
What is the process of the treatment
It isn’t a lengthy process at all and takes only a few minutes with no anaesthesia necessary. Using a fine needle, we will inject the toxin into specific muscles. There will only be minor discomfort for a short period. The effects do not become apparent until 4-10 days after treatment and should last approximately 3-4 month.
Do I need to avoid anything before and after treatment?
Botox is a safe and speedy procedure and will have hardly any impact on your day to day activities. We do however recommend you avoid anything too strenuous for at least 24 hours. Here are some suggestions:
Avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 4 hours, including facials.
Only commit to light exercise for 24 hours.
Try to remain upright for 4 hours. So, avoid laying on your front or taking part in activities that involve you leaning over too much.
Don’t wear any tight headwear. For example, a helmet that may be tight across your forehead.
Avoid drinking excessive amounts of alcohol.
If you are on blood-thinning medication, seek advice before your treatment.
Please note, Botulinum Toxin Type A is a prescription-only medicine and will only be prescribed after an initial consultation.
