Everyone knows that regular exercise and a balanced diet are two important ways to help stay healthy, feel well and look good. However, nothing can stop time passing and whether we like it or not, as we grow older it shows in our faces. Frown lines and wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process. Botox® is the cosmetic form of Botulinum toxin A which is used at Innocent Aesthetics.
The first step is a full consultation with one of our highly experienced aesthetics nurse practitioners. Possible side effects and aftercare are discussed. Skin is cleansed. Local anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin prior to your treatment, which consist of a number of small injections to the chosen area. The effects take 7-14 days to become apparent, and you will be given a follow-up appointment at 14 days which is included in the initial charge.
You slight bruising may occur at injection sites. Some clients suffer from a mild headache which can be resolved with simple analgesia such as paracetamol. Rarely patients may experience heaviness of the eyebrows; this is temporary and will resolve given time.
Aftercare with BotoxÂ®
After your treatment we strongly advise that you follow post treatment guidance. Please avoid alcohol, sunbeds, extreme sun exposure, and saunas for 48 hours. It is also unwise to have any injectable treatments within 48 hours of flying long haul. These guidelines are to ensure that you have the best possible results from your treatment.

Axillary Hyperhidrosis Treatments
Most normal or heavy sweating can be controlled with shop purchased aluminium chloride. When the amount of sweating is excessive and cannot be controlled by these measures it is termed hyperhidrosis.
Axillary Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating at the armpits.
The symptoms of hyperhidrosis are caused by overactive sweat glands or overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system.
Excessive sweating can be more than just an irritant, it can dramatically alter the way people lead their daily activities. Within social setting sufferers can feel very uncomfortable as they are not able to control their perspiration and frequently have their clothes stained with sweat. Many sufferers double layer to try and absorb some sweat before it leaves embarrassing marks on garments.
Relief of the condition can lead to vastly improved quality of life regaining confidence and self esteem.
Botulinum Toxin is injected into the armpit area using very small needles. This causes paralysis of the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands, leading to cessation of sweat production.
The treatment is relatively painless and takes 30-45 minutes to complete. There are no side effects, or after affects and normal activities can be resumed immediately. The treatment will last for up to 9 months.
