Dears Pharmacy and Travel Clinic is offering a new anti-wrinkle service using Botox®. The treatment can be provided in three areas: forehead lines, Crows feet and Glabellar lines to create a natural youthful appearance. Book a consultation to start your journey of slowing ageing today.
How does it work?
When injected in small doses, the anti-wrinkle treatment blocks signals between the nerves and the muscle which causes the muscle to relax. This helps to reduce the severity of lines and creates a natural youthful appearance. It is important to note that it can take the treatment up to 2 weeks to reach its full effect.
How long does it last?
The duration of action can vary between each individual depending on their desired look. However, typically the treatment should last 3-6 months.
What is involved?
Our trained pharmacists will have an initial consultation with you before the treatment. This is to discuss your treatment plan and to ensure that you have no health problems that Botox® may interfere with or worsen. You will then be told the possible effects of the procedure to forewarn you of any unwanted symptoms. It is important to note that you will be awake during the procedure and this is perfectly normal and common practice.
What does it cost?
We are currently offering an introductory offer of £225 for 3 areas. If you wish to only have one area treated the cost is £150 and 2 areas is £200.
Who is not suitable for this service?
You would not be considered a candidate for Botox® if you have any of the following:
- Myasthenia Gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome
- Allergy to Botulinum Toxin
- Neuromuscular disorder
- Pregnant or breastfeeding
- Allergy to human albumin
2 weeks before Botox®:
Make sure you schedule your Botox® appointment at least 2 weeks prior to any special occasions such as a summer holiday or a wedding.
You should also avoid blood thinning medications and anti-inflammatory medicines for the 2 weeks leading up to your treatment.
All of these can thin your blood which increases the likelihood of you experiencing swelling or bruising after Botox® injections. Discuss with your doctor any concerns you may have. It may not be prudent for you to stop taking certain prescription medication.
Day of treatment:
Please avoid wearing any makeup or skin products on your face.
