Have you started to look in the mirror and wonder where the time has gone? Are you noticing tell-tale signs of ageing such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, Glabella lines (lines between the eyebrows) and other annoying expression lines? From her clinics based in South Woodford, Harley Street and Bishops Stortford, Dr. Anita Dhunna practices the art of temporary wrinkle-smoothing injections, commonly known as Botox, to smooth lines and erase the years that may have taken their toll on your skin.
Botox has been around for many years as a treatment for dynamic (expression) lines and has been used in medicine for corrective and therapeutic treatments for many more. It was originally discovered as an excellent anti-ageing treatment in the mid 1980s when Dr. Scott who was treating her patients for involuntary facial spasms, noticed that they were starting to look younger with the aid of these injections. Following this discovery, Botox was approved for this purpose and has been regularly administered for line smoothing since the early 1990s.
Botox is a brand name for a substance called Botulinum Toxin Type A and there are other brands available which produce effective results. It works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that create expression lines when we express emotions such as laughing, frowning and concentrating. When expertly administered by a highly-qualified medical practitioner such as Dr. Anita Dhunna, these lines are temporarily smoothed but the face can still express emotion without looking ‘overdone’ or ‘frozen’. Dr. Anita Dhunna has spent many years perfecting this technique and from her locations in Harley Street, South Woodford and Bishops Stortford, can revitalise and beautify your face so that you achieve a more youthful and less tired look.
Botox injections, it is vital to undergo a full consultation with Dr Anita Dhunna at one of her clinics based in South Woodford, Harley Street or Bishops Stortford. Having a range of locations makes it easier for you to reach Dr. Dhunna and undergo regular treatments as you need them.
The treatment is not painful and takes only a few minutes. Very small needles are used for the injections and therefore if you are nervous of needles you can rest-assured that with Dr. Anita’s light touch and years of expertise you are in safe hands and will feel very little. This means that no anaesthetic is required with Botox injections.
It’s important to remember that Botox injections are temporary measures for the effective reduction of expression lines so regular treatments will ensure long-term satisfaction. Each time you are treated, you’ll be able to see results within 48 hours to a few days. Full results can take up to two weeks and if a ‘top up’ treatment is required after such time, Dr. Anita will be more than happy to invite you to return to one of her clinics for this. Results can last anything from 3 to 6 months, sometimes longer.
If you have started to wonder how you can effectively reduce the appearance of dynamic expression lines when creams, lotions and potions have failed, regular treatments with Botox injections, performed by Dr. Anita Dhunna at her South Woodford, Harley Street and Bishops Stortford clinics will smooth out those tell-tale lines and keep you looking fresh and youthful without the need for invasive surgery or lengthy downtime.
