As we all know, winter can play havoc with our skin. Lack of vitamin D, cold weather, biting winds and central heating can all contribute to a tired and lacklustre facial appearance. Even wrinkles that may not have been visible last year, may have appeared during those colder months, leaving us feeling flat and uninspired by our complexion. Fortunately, from her clinics in South Woodford, Harley Street and Hatfield, Dr Anita Dhunna offers some quick and simple, but highly-effective solutions for skin which may have been ravaged during winter, and may be looking more wrinkled and needing a ‘pick-me-up’ to reveal a more youthful appearance.
Depending on the type of wrinkles you have (dynamic or static) a treatment using Botox® could dramatically improve the look of your skin, after winter has taken its toll.
Botox® is an injectable treatment which typically takes around 15 minutes. The substance itself (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is what’s known as a neurotoxin, as it blocks the signals between the facial nerves and the muscles which move and cause dynamic wrinkling of the skin. Think forehead lines, crow’s feet, Glabellar lines (the vertical lines between your eyebrows) and bunny lines (the lines down the sides of your nose). These lines appear when we create expression, such as frowning, concentrating and smiling. Injecting Botox® smoothes these lines temporarily, helping to create a more youthful and healthy looking facial appearance. We say temporarily, as the results last months as opposed to being permanent, which is handy when you consider that as your face ages over time, the treatment can be ‘tweaked’ to suit, meaning you get great looking skin and an overall improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, without looking strange or overdone.
Expect the results to take between 24 hours and 2 weeks to fully appear. At the 2 week stage, you can return to Dr Anita Dhunna for any tweaks needed. You’ll be offered some very simple aftercare instructions, such as not bending forward or rubbing the treated area for 4 hours, exercising vigorously for 24 to 48 hours and limiting your intake of alcohol the day of your treatment, to prevent bruising or inadvertently rubbing or lying on the treated facial areas, causing the product to spread.
Why should I use Dr Anita Dhunna for my Botox® treatment this Spring?
There are hundreds, if not thousands of medical and non-medical practitioners offering Botox® injections all over the UK. Many of whom have all the right medical qualifications to do the job (we recommend that you never use a practitioner who is not medically qualified and trained in administering Botox®, as it is a prescribed drug which needs to be handled carefully); but only a select few who have the skills and experience it takes to be an outstanding Botox® injector. This can only come with time, exceptional training and experience – all of which Dr Anita Dhunna possesses. Simply understanding medicine and having appropriate training, does not make someone a brilliant Botox® practitioner. It takes dedication, an eye for facial artistry, a deep understanding of the needs and requirements of her patients as individuals and a duty of care to uphold the safest regulations and practices.
When you visit Dr Anita Dhunna for a Botox® treatment, you’ll firstly need to be assessed and discuss the treatment in a no obligation consultation. Dr Anita Dhunna will give you all the information and advice you need, as well as conducting a facial examination and medical history check. After which, if you are both satisfied that you will benefit from Botox® you can book your treatment appointment.
As Spring finally emerges and we begin to venture out more and more, we deserve to look and feel our best. Botox® can work wonders for expression lines and dynamic wrinkles, but only if it is administered with the medical knowledge and expertise that Dr Anita Dhunna possesses.
If you want to reduce your wrinkles this Spring, make your Botox® appointment with Dr Anita Dhunna and look forward to smoother, more youthful looking skin.
