There will probably come a time in your life when you look in the mirror and decide that you might need a little touch up here and there. But, you may be wondering if botox Alderley Edge is the right answer for you. We quite often get asked lots of questions about our procedures, and the most common one is what is botox? If you have been reading our other blogs, you will know that botox is a neurotoxin that is injected into the face to ease the signs of wrinkles – and it is one of the most common non-surgical facial treatments offered in the UK.
Here are some of the other common questions we get asked:
Botox is best used as a preventative measure once you have seen the sign of wrinkles starting to prevent them from developing further. Therefore, the best candidate for botox is someone who only has a small number of lines on their face and is wanting to prevent more. It is also a great option for someone who doesn’t want more invasive surgery. If your wrinkles are already deep-set then you may be better with dermal fillers Alderley edge to help plump them up and ease them slightly.
Botox is probably best avoided by those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are taking any medication, dietary supplements or have an illness such as asthma or diabetes then you need to let your aesthetician know as well. If you have the treatment and you have not revealed any illness that you have, then you may suffer from unpleasant side effects – it is always best to be open and honest and then we can give you the best advice.
Botox is a non-invasive surgery and so it usually doesn’t require any serious recovery time. Your face may swell slightly or show small signs of bruising but these will probably go down within a few hours. It is probably best to stay away from alcohol for a couple of days before your injection and to aid the healing process you should avoid both aspirin and ibuprofen for a week.
You probably won’t be able to see an immediate effect no, but the more injections you have the better the results will be. So, the second time you have the injections you will see results more quickly, and so on.
As you can probably imagine, it is different for every person, but in general, we would expect botox to last between 3 and 6 months. Remember, the more treatments you have, the better the results as Botox is a long-term strategy to help prevent the appearance of wrinkles by training the muscles not to move in a way which forms lines.

Non-surgical facial aesthetics treatments are rapidly growing in popularity the world over – at the detriment of surgical procedures actually. More and more people are plumping for minimally invasive treatments such as the dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments that are popular at facial aesthetics Stockport – but why are they so popular?
Facial aesthetics treatments tend to be quicker and simpler than traditional surgical procedures, not permanent, and therefore a lot cheaper. This means that people who would normally have opted for a plastic surgery solution, are now going for the quicker and easier option instead.
There are lots of celebrities living in the local area who regularly use facial aesthetics hale and this widespread acceptance has made it more socially acceptable for people to admit that they have had things ‘done.’ A great example of a popular celebrity who regularly has treatments is Kyle Jenner who regularly talks about the lip fillers she has, and how much more confident it makes her feel.
There are lots of new treatments being introduced to the market on a daily basis, and we are keeping a close eye on them to see which ones would be interesting to our clients and that we can easily be trained in.
Although an anti-wrinkle treatment may not seem like it is offering you a health benefit, there are actual symptoms that can be eased with the use of an anti-wrinkle treatment. For example, the same treatment for wrinkles can actually be used to cure excessive sweating if injected into your armpit and some migraine suffers have reported an easing in their symptoms after an anti-wrinkle injection (but this won’t work for everyone).
Many people feel OK about telling their friends they have had dermal fillers or wrinkle treatments when their friends tell them how great they look, and this is great advertising for the sort of results that facial aesthetics can achieve! Sometimes we even have groups of friends who come in for treatments together and make a bit of an afternoon of it.
As the majority of facial aesthetic treatments are not permanent, the injections will need topping up every few months in order to achieve the same effect. The length of time treatments last varies from 3 to 12 months, but it does mean that patients will come back regularly to have top-ups.
