Botox® & Anti-Wrinkle Injections By Doctors
About Botox® Injections & Bocouture
Our team of experienced and talented Doctors and Surgeons specialise in anti-wrinkle treatments for men and women for a variety of conditions. The most popular treatments are Botulinum toxin Type A (botox) injections commonly known as botox.
Botulinum toxin Type A (botox) injections are administered by our Doctors in small quantities into specific facial muscles causing the muscle to relax and therefore reduce the appearance of expression lines, folds and wrinkles and resulting in a more youthful look.
At Alpha Med Aesthetics we offer two brands of Botulinum toxin Type A, the original Botox® by Allergan and Bocouture by Merz. Both are effective anti-wrinkle treatments, however, Botox® is our premium brand and the preferred brand of our doctors.
Botox® injections have been used successfully for many years as a non-surgical treatment for the rejuvenation of the skin. Botox® and Bocouture are prescription medicines that can only be prescribed for you by a trained medical professional.
Common uses of Botox®and Bocouture include:
Bunny Lines (lines around the upper nose)
Mouth Lines/Vertical Lip Lines (smokers fine lines around the lips)
Botox® is currently the only approved treatment for the temporary reduction and improvement of moderate to severe Crows Feet, Frown Lines and Forehead wrinkles. Botox® is one of the most studied and researched medical aesthetic treatments in the world and has been approved for use in 78 countries. It is used by over 4 million patients in the USA each year.
How Botox®and Bocouture Work:
As part of the natural ageing process the skin on the face and body gradually lose collagen and elastin. This is particularly noticeable on the face when we lose tone and elasticity. Daily facial gestures foster repetitive contractions of facial muscles. This results in the formation of wrinkles, folds and fine lines which appear pronounced both when the face is in animation and when static; all resulting in a less youthful look and signs of ageing.
Botox® and Bocouture are protein-based anti-wrinkle injectable treatments. They work by targeting the causes of lines working beneath the skin's surface to temporarily reduce muscle activity under the skin.
Botox® and Bocouture injections are administered in small quantities by the Doctor into specific facial muscles. The muscles injected are those that cause the lines and wrinkles to appear due to repetitive contractions, squinting and movement. Once the Botox® or Bocouture injection is administered the treated muscle contractions reduce, resulting in fewer static and dynamic wrinkles and a more youthful appearance.
About Botox®and Bocouture Treatments:
Our highly respected Surgeons and Doctors administer all our treatments. With years of training our medical professionals have a full understanding of the anatomy of the face and eye and are committed to providing you with the safest, most effective and natural results. We believe only fully qualified Doctors with a full knowledge of facial anatomy should administer treatments.
Our Doctors use a special technique to ensure the proper dosages of Botox® and Bocouture are administered in the correct muscle locations to minimise any side effects or bruising.
Botox injections are administered using fine sterile disposable syringes. Botox® and Bocouture injections are relatively painless, however, you may feel a small pinch. Your Doctor may administer a topical local anesthetic cream to help reduce any discomfort.
Depending on the skin concerns you present, your Doctor will inject specific facial muscles with Botox® or Bocouture injections. The number of areas injected with Botox® or Bocouture will vary depending on the individual client, the muscle being targeted and the concern. Crows feet usually require 3 areas to be injected on both sides of the eyes and frown lines can require 5. Men's treatments usually require more units of botox to be used due to the skin dexterity and nature of the dermis. Deeper Lines and wrinkles may require the use of more units of botox. Your Doctor will discuss exactly what is suitable for you at your no obligation consultation.
Botox® and Bocouture treatments take on average 10 – 15 minutes to administer per area being treated. You should expect to see noticeable results within 2- 14 days.
When you first start having botox treatments the line reduction effects will usually last for 3 to 4 months. If you have botox treatments at regular intervals over time you may, notice that the effects last longer, and you may only require maintaince treatments at 6 month intervals.
Treatments are only available for adults aged 18 years and over and only following a full consultation with our Doctors.
We aim to see all patients after two weeks of the treatment to ensure the desired effects have been achieved.
