Botox: it’s probably one of the most well-known aesthetic treatments in the whole world. Here at Rebecca Taylor Aesthetics, a renowned skin clinic in Suffolk, we’re huge fans of this injectable. We’ve only got good things to say about it – from fantastic, lasting results to the little downtime involved.
In this post, we’ll share our 5 favourite things about this fantastic treatment – so whether you’re still on the fence or you’ve enjoyed botox results for yourself, read on.
1) Botox can treat more than wrinkles
Many of our clients are surprised to hear that botox has multiple uses. Not only can it tackle those troublesome lines and wrinkles that can leave you looking older than you feel, but it can be used to shape the nose and slim the jaw. Aside from beauty treatments, botox injections can also be used to treat excessive sweating and headaches. It’s no wonder that some in the industry consider it something of a cure-all!
2) Results are long-lasting
One of the things our clients love is the fact that botox injections are long-lasting, but not permanent. This means you can make ‘tweaks’ in future – whether it’s changing the quantity you want to use or the area you want to treat. On average, you can expect botox to last around 3-4 months, and some have even enjoyed results from as little as 2 days post-treatment.
3) It’s extremely safe
While you will need a professional to carry out your treatment – like our qualified Independent Nurse Prescriber, Rebecca Taylor – botox is a medically regulated toxin and downtime is typically only around 24 hours. What’s more, side effects are usually easy to manage – redness, tiredness and itchiness are possible, but these should pass within 2-3 days after your treatment.
4) Treatment is fast and painless
Though we do carry out an initial consultation to check suitability and work out what you want from your botox injections, your session will only last around 20 minutes – meaning if you pop in on your lunch break, you’ll still have time to grab a sandwich!
5) Botox is easy to book
Choosing and booking a treatment shouldn’t feel stressful, and at Rebecca Taylor Aesthetics, we want to make your experience with us as relaxed and positive as possible. That’s why we give you the option to book online, over the phone or even by dropping into our Suffolk skin clinic.
