Whats Involved
Because this is an “injectible” product and not a surgical procedure in the conventional sense, there is little preparation for you to worry about.
• You will need to removal all make up and have a conversation about any treatments you may have had recently and any reactions to surgical methods etc. Most patients do not need a topical anaesthetic but this can be provided if you feel it would help.
• Next you will be asked to make certain facial expressions so that the clinician can assess where to inject and how much is required.
• Using a fine needle the clinician will inject small amounts of the serum (botulinum toxin) into the selected muscles.
• It might feel a little bit more sensitive around the finer more delicate areas of skin such as the eyes.
• Each treatment takes 10-15 minutes and you should feel normal and ready to carry on with your day without rest or downtime.

The team at Juvea are highly skilled and experienced in treating any number of anti-ageing treatments for all areas of the face and body. Applications of BOTOX® are most typically administered to the areas between the eyebrows (Glabella), lines around the eyes, commonly known as “crow’s feet”, and the horizontal lines across the forehead. The procedure is also highly successful way to “lift” brows and correcting the drooping of upper eyelids. It can even be used to combat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

It is important to note that the treatment it can take up to two weeks for the full results to be visible. You are always welcome to book a review appointment soon after your treatment to assess the results.

At Juvea Aesthetics London Clinic, we pride ourselves on the aftercare offered by our professionals and the clinic as a whole. We are always happy to answer any concerns you might have about your recent treatment or procedures you might be considering in future.

Your Juvea clinician will provide you with all the post-treatment advice to ensure you get the best from your lines and wrinkle procedure. However, here are some standard care points for you to be aware of:

Immediately after and for the following 2-3 hours:

  • Exercise the treated facial muscles as much as possible to maximise the effects of the BOTOX®.

For the next 6 hours:

  • Avoid exercise, hot baths, saunas, tanning and alcohol as this will increase blood flow and dilute the effect of the treatment.
  • Avoid touching or rubbing your face to reduce risk of infection.
  • Do not apply make up.

For the next 24 hours:

  • Avoid treatments such as facials and exfoliation.
  • If pain relief is required, take paracetamol rather than aspirin or anti-inflammatories (such as ibuprofen) to avoid bruising.
  • Avoid sunlight and sun tanning.

One of the best things about the treatment is that it such a quick and pain free treatment. Each person’s experience can differ, but for most there is virtually no recovery time – just some things to be mindful of such as avoiding the risk of infection. You may notice minuscule red marks at the point of injection which must not be touched or rubbed. Any discomfort can be helped with paracetamol. The great thing about Botox injections is that they require no downtime, making it the perfect lunch time treatment! You may notice tiny red marks at the injection site which your doctor will advise you do not rub, but these will soon subside as will any minor bruising if it occurs.

The Eyes
For most people, the skin around the eyes is the first area of the face to suffer the effects of ageing. The delicate skin underneath and at the outer edges are particularly ageing. Frown lines between the brows are a very common problem due to the strong and heavy muscles above and between the eyes. With reduced muscle activity from the BOTOX® injection, these areas cannot crease up.

Is Botulinum toxin safe for your eyes?

Botulinum toxin for medical and cosmetic usage is approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). It has been given special attention on safety to the eyes because it is often used in the treatment of uncontrollable eye twitching (blepharospasm).

At Juvea Aesthetics our highly skilled and expertly trained technicians will exercise all safety precautions to prevent adverse reactions to the serum however.

Forehead
The Forehead One of the most popular requests at Juvea Aesthetics is the correction of horizontal lines in the forehead that appear when we raise our eyebrows – the look of surprise! Not just an ageing symptom, these lines can occur in very young people with just the slightest of muscle contraction but the heaviness of the skin and deep lines within the folds can result in a much older appearance.

Fortunately, this is one of the areas easiest to treat with BOTOX®. It takes just a small amount of the injection to relax the muscles giving visible improvements and the chance to eliminate the wrinkles over a period of time. Forehead lines develop as we age as over time due to contracting the muscles that make us concentrate, frown or squint. These forehead lines are one of the easiest types of lines to correct. A small amount of Botox will relax the overactive muscles and significantly reduce or eliminate the wrinkles over time.

Frown Lines
For the “thinkers” among us, the frown lines that occur between our brows (the glabellar) are a rather harsh punishment for all that time spent deep in thought. When these lines appear with the slightest of unconscious movement, it’s a tired, stressed or angry person that is seen by everyone else. BOTOX® is ideal for this part of the face. The deep muscle tissue can easily be injected to reduce the harsh lines and what’s more it will prevent the wrinkles becoming more pronounced.

The Brows
Similar to the problem of the frown line, a low hanging brow line is not only ageing but it can portray a sad or angry person underneath. By having BOTOX® applied to the brow, you can actually achieve a non surgical “brow lift”. It actually does lift the skin tissue above and around the eyebrows to create a slight arch, resulting in a more youthful and happy appearance!

If you have seen people with overly happy, stunned looking expressions on their face – it is probably due to a less experienced BOTOX clinician. This is why it is so important to use only the best- trained and well-practiced professionals such as the clinicians at Juvea. Our client testimonials prove that they getting exactly the results they were looking for with their BOTOX® treatment.
Botox for the Nose
The nose, or nose-to-cheek, lines that appear diagonally when smiling or laughing can lead to quite pronounced folds of skin as we age. This is another BOTOX® success story. Compared to the fine-skinned areas of the face, these deeper muscles can be injected at just the right point to stop the peak of the cheeks causing deep ravines. When the muscles spend more time relaxed and not contracted the wrinkles can actually start to fade with treatments.

The Jaw Line and Chin
The Jaw Line And Chin The beauty of BOTOX® is that it can offer the same results as a surgical procedure. Although you will see really good, long lasting effects, the results are not immediately permanent. This is a benefit, as it actually gives you the control over how your wish to continue with your anti-ageing treatments.

Jowls appearing at the jaw and start of chin are probably the biggest give away of age or premature ageing even from a distance. They cannot be easily disguised like forehead lines (cut yourself a fringe!) or even crows feet (wear large sunglasses!).

The jaw line, chin and neck area can all be given a non-surgical “face lift” via BOTOX®. By having injections around the jaw line and into the platysma muscle your skin will be tightened, reducing the appearance of jowls or a sagging chin. Ageing around the jawline and the neck area can make an individual appear much older than they are, but with Botox injections around the jawline and into the platysma muscle can give a tightened appearance and reducing the jowls, like a non-surgical facelift.

The Treatment of Migraines
The misery of migraines can blight many lives. These intense headaches are caused by a misfiring of the nervous system and can last for hours or even days. Research continues on what triggers the brain to act in this way, but it is thought that stress, diet and/or hormones might contribute to the condition. Rather than relying on strong medication, people are now turning to BOTOX® as an immediate relief for a migraine headache. Simply by targeting a particular set of muscles, our highly skilled clinicians at Juvea can administer an effective solution of BOTOX® to ease the symptoms and even lessen the frequency or intensity over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • + So what is Botox?

    So What Is BOTOX®? BOTOX® is the brand name of a protein called botulinum toxin. The brand is owned by the highly respected pharmaceutical corporation, ALLERGAN® which has offices in the UK. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, temporarily disabling contraction. Lines and fine wrinkles are unable to form which results in smoother, younger looking skin. It is classed as an “injectible” treatment and although this means it is a non-surgical procedure it is best administered by fully qualified and experienced clinicians. Botulinum Toxin (known as ‘Botox’) is a protein which temporarily relaxes the muscle by blocking nerve impulses so they are temporarily unable to contract, wrinkles are unable to form and in turn the skin will have a smoother, more youthful appearance. Botox® is an Allergan brand of anti-wrinkle treatment.

  • + What areas can be treated?

    What Areas Can Be Treated? Many areas of the face and neck can be treated. Frown lines which appear between the eyes known as glabella is one of the most popular treatments. BOTOX® is also highly successful in correcting lines around outside of the eyes known as crow’s feet and the horizontal lines across the forehead. Other areas where BOTOX® is being used is for the lifting of the brow line, the correction of drooping eyelids, the tightening of jowls and along the chin and neck. Some surprising treatments where BOTOX® can be treated are excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and migraine headaches. he most popular areas to be treated by Botox are the frown lines between the eyebrows (glabella), lines around the eyes (crow’s feet) and the horizontal lines across the forehead. Botox can also be used for brow lifting, correcting drooping upper eyelids and to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

  • + How long does it last?

    Each person is a little bit different and it will depend upon the area being treated, but on average the results should last around four months. With regular treatments, this can be extended and by having treatments at the right intervals you will experience a more consistent appearance to your skin.

  • + Is it safe?

    BOTOX® has been proven to be a very safe treatment. With over 10 years of treatments to people aged between 18 and 65, this tried and trusted method of combating the signs of aging is one of the safest in the cosmetic industry. Unwanted results are usually the result of less experienced practitioners. At Juvea Aesthetics, only the best trained and highly experienced clinicians are permitted to administer BOTOX®. They will thoroughly assess your skin for suitability of the protein and learn from you the results you are looking for. BOTOX® is not suitable during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Botox is one of the safest aesthetic treatments in the industry and has been used cosmetically to treat wrinkles for over a decade on people aged between 18 to 65.

At Juvea Aesthetics, a highly-experienced clinician will assess your suitability for muscle relaxant treatments and provide you with the best treatment and after care possible.

  • + Is there any aftercare?

    Your professional clinician at Juvea Aesthetics will provide all the post-treatment advice you need to ensure you get the best results from your BOTOX® procedure. Here are some standard pieces of advice so you are prepared in advance for the post treatment phase:
    Exercise the facial muscles as much as possible for the few hours immediately following the treatment.
    For the 6 hours after the treatment you must avoid exercise, hot baths, saunas, tanning and alcohol. All these will increase blood flow, diluting the effect of the BOTOX® protein.
    For 24 hours after treatment, avoid the sunlight, avoid touching or rubbing your face, do not have a facial treatment or use exfoliating products on your skin. If you feel discomfort to the level that you need pain relief, use paracetamol rather than aspirin or anti-inflammatories as these medications can cause bruising.

  • + Are there any side effects?

    There may be some temporary after-effects following the Botox injections, most commonly slight bruising, tenderness at the injection site, swelling and occasionally headaches or flu-like symptoms. Most of these subside in a few hours but the latter may last up to 2 or 3 days. Very rarely, a mild drooping of the eyelid may occur but in the unlikely event that this happens, please contact the clinic so an experienced practitioner can make an assessment.

  • + Is there any aftercare?

    Your clinician will provide post-treatment advice to ensure you get the best from your treatment but it’s useful to bear the following in mind: following the injections, it is important to exercise the treated facial muscles as much as possible for the next few hours (frowning, squinting, raising eyebrows etc.) to help maximise the effects of the Botox. For at least 6 hours after treatment it’s best to avoid exercise, hot baths, saunas, tanning and alcohol as these can increase blood flow and may dilute the effect. Avoid rubbing the treated area or applying pressure, and do not use make-up for the same period of time to avoid skin infections. Treatments such as facials and exfoliation should be avoided for 24 hours, and take paracetamol rather than aspirin or anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen to avoid bruising.

  • + How long will it take to see the results?

    Most patients will notice some softening of lines within 2-4 days, but the optimum results can take up to two weeks to be seen.

  • + Do the injections hurt?

    The needles used for Botox injections are very fine so any pain is minimal. If preferred, the area can be numbed with a topical anaesthetic cream 20 minutes before your treatment so you will not feel any discomfort.

    Your experienced doctor will assess how many units of Botox are required for you at your consultation, and which areas require treatment. You will only require one treatment around every four months to maintain your wrinkle-free complexion.

  • + How long will it take to see the results?

    The results are quite quick. Most patients notice an improvement within 2-4 days of the treatment, but expect to wait around two weeks for the best results to become visible.

  • + Does it hurt?

    No, there is no real pain as such with the BOTOX® treatment. Some people experience a mild discomfort and if you are particularly worried about this you can ask for a mild topical anaesthetic cream which will be applied 20 minutes before the procedure. he needles used for Botox injections are very fine so any pain is minimal. If preferred, the area can be numbed with a topical anaesthetic cream 20 minutes before your treatment so you will not feel any discomfort.
