Wrinkle Reduction at Aura
Botulinum Toxin Type A effectively reduces/removes dynamic lines, wrinkles and folds (forehead, frown lines and crows feet) by relaxing overall facial muscles giving a fresh, smoother look.
A minute quantity of Botox is injected directly into a specific muscle. It acts as a muscle relaxant by blocking the nerve impulses directed towards the muscles in which it is injected. The result is a temporary cessation of nerve signals reaching the muscle which prevents the muscle from contracting. Treatment is particularly effective to create a smoother complexion.
The procedure takes around 15 minutes, during whcih your practitioner will ask you to pull some facial expressions in order to understand your facial muscles. Your practitioner will then use a very thin needle to inject the diluted product into the appropriate muscle.
Over the course of 5-10 days you will begin to see the effect. If at any time you have any concerns about the treatment you have received please contact your practitioner who will be able to advice you.
The smoothing effect of the treatment lasts up to 4 months, so repeat treatment will be necessary to maintain the effect. VISTABEL should only be injected by an experienced practitioner who has been appropriately trained on the product.
If they occur are usually temporary and short lived. They are usually linked to the injections (pain on injection, redness, swelling, bruising, etc). Other more rare side effects are ptosis (drooping of the upper eyelid), whilst still temporary in nature can be caused by the spread of the injection into nearby muscles.
Botox is approved in the UK for the treatment of several medical conditions including migraine, muscle spasm and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). It contains a specially prepared naturally occurring purified protein that originates from bacteria. Botox has been used in clinical practice for more than 10 years. This extensive experience confirms the established safety profile of treatment with the product.
