Ilford is a vibrant and bustling town at the heart of the Essex region, and as most of us are aware, Essex is host to those who love glitz, glamour and looking fabulous! You only have to watch TV programmes such as TOWIE to see that maintaining a youthful and stunning appearance is high on the agenda for both men and women in Essex. Botox® is arguably THE most popular non-surgical injectable treatment in the Essex region and Ilford is no exception. Patients of all ages flock to Dr Anita Dhunna’s Essex-based clinics to undergo this quick, safe and highly-effective anti-wrinkle injection treatment, for superb results in a professional and medically-regulated environment.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a naturally-occurring protein. It blocks the nerve impulses which make the facial muscles create expression. By temporarily blocking these signals, the muscles are relaxed and dynamic wrinkles and expression lines are smoothed away. The injections themselves take very little time to administer (you must only have Botox® injections with a medically-qualified practitioner who has been suitably trained in this area) and the results can last up to 4 months!. Botox® has been certified as safe for use in the facial area since the 1980s, but has been used in medicine for decades to help with muscle spasms, bladder problems, migraines, eye problems and excessive sweating.
What can I expect from a Botox® treatment with Dr Anita Dhunna in Essex?
Before your treatment, Dr Anita will ask that you attend a no obligation, pre-treatment consultation, so that she can discuss your facial concerns as well as examine you. She will also check your medical history to ensure you are fit and well for this treatment. Once she is happy to proceed with the treatment, you can book your appointment. On the day of your Botox® treatment, you’ll complete some standard consent forms as well as a consultation questionnaire. Then, you will be asked to relax on the treatment couch and Dr Anita will ask you to make expressions such as raising your eyebrows, frowning and smiling. Once this is completed, she will strategically place the Botox® injections accurately into the facial muscles. Pain relief is not usually required for Botox® injections as the needles used are extremely fine. The injection process should not take more than 5 to 10 minutes and you will be able to return to your daily activities, as long as you adhere to certain aftercare advice, such as not bending or leaning forward, avoiding rubbing or touching the areas injected and avoiding strenuous exercise for at least 48 hours after your treatment.
When will I see the results from my Botox® treatment with Dr Anita Dhunna?
Results can usually start to happen at around 24 to 48 hours, post-procedure. However, expect the optimum results to be seen at around 2 weeks. At this stage you can return to see Dr Anita Dhunna at one of her Essex-based clinics for any adjustments or extra injections that may be required. A less is more approach is key with Botox® injections and it’s better to add than to regret using too much product. Therefore, it’s vital that you trust Dr Anita’s judgement on this treatment and be patient, you’ll get the results you are looking for, but in good time and safely.
Botox® in Essex is an extremely popular choice for those who want results that can last months but without going under the knife or paying thousands for facial treatments. It’s quick and simple to administer by a medical Botox® expert such as Dr Anita Dhunna and will keep those annoying laughter lines, frown lines, forehead lines and bunny lines at bay. What’s more, regular Botox® treatments (every 4 months or so) can even prevent new expression lines from forming! Therefore, it’s no wonder Ilford loves Botox®!
