Botox, Whats the deal?*

Thursday, 15 March 2018

I'll be the first to admit that when I think of Botox, I think of the old saying, If the wind changes, your face will stay like that.’ I think that's because there's so much stigma surrounding the procedure which usually leaves us all thinking about the 'frozen face' look. I want to understand more about this procedure, and actually, understand what the deal is with BotoxTrust me, it's a lot more than just an injection. I've teamed up with Courthouse Clinics and I'm going to find out what the deal is with Botox. I'm not, of course, suggesting we all go and get plastic surgery, but I wanted to post this for anyone considering the procedure who might want to know more, whether you're really against procedures or you're in the process of having one done to you!

What is Botox and how does it work?Is it safe & does it hurt? The overall effect

Botox is an anti-ageing injection that is used to smooth out wrinkles. It's an inexpensive procedure and is very commonly used - it can even be completed as quickly as your lunch hour! Botox is clinically proven and it works by weakening the muscles which gather your skin into folds. It does this temporarily and makes the skin creaseproof in that area. Once the Botox is injected, it will attach itself to the target muscle to give you this effect. Usually, the Botox wears off in roughly 4 months and then your skin will return to its previous state. 

The actual procedure itself is broken up into a couple of steps. Firstly, you'd have your consultation where your doctor will discuss Botox with you, as well as talk about what you're aiming for with your treatment. After that will be your treatment, where your doctor will prep your skin with a cleanser and then administer the Botox using a small needle into the target muscle. This will then prevent the muscle from contracting and leave you with 'crease proof' skin which looks smoother and firmer.

Botox is one of the most commonly used cosmetic procedures, so long as you're using a trained doctor and are using it in recommended amounts it's perfectly safe. People, of course, have different pain thresholds but most people would describe Botox as slightly uncomfortable. As with most cosmetic procedures, there's likely to be some pain, though it is possible to numb your face beforehand with a numbing cream if you are worried about pain. 


Overall, I've learnt a lot about the procedure. Before researching, I just had the frozen face in mind! However, the results of Botox with this clinic are just so natural and it really does give a nice smooth finish. There are of course some instances where you shouldn't really have Botox doneIf you’re taking muscle relaxants, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, you really should steer clear of the treatment. It’s important to do your research first to determine if the Botox procedure is something for you.

Courthouse Clinics really understand the Botox London* way! As well as their London location, they have clinics across the length of the UK, including Birmingham, Sheffield and Southampton to name a few. Their trained Doctors want you to feel your very best, so have many different treatments to choose from at their clinics, including Laser Hair Removal, anti-ageing. injections and Dermal Fillers. Their team is super friendly if you’d like to get in touch, and they also have a live chat on their website which I have found really useful. Sometimes, people feel more comfortable having a chat about procedures like this over the internet than over the phone, so you’ll always feel at ease!

    1. Before I did the research I thought of it the same way. However, If it's all done by a reputable clinic you're much less likely to have any implications.

  2. I always used to think I would go for this when the wrinkles set in but I'm terrified of needles lol! I learnt a few things from this post though as I always think of frozen faces when it comes to Botox!

  4. I believe in growing old naturally so I'm hoping to never have work like this done. It was interesting to learn more about it though.

    1. I'm unsure whether I will, we'll have to see what the future brings but I also found it really interesting to look into and research and it's handy to have the information there should I need it.
