How exactly do Botox work?
This treatment works by relaxing the facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses. These muscles will no longer be able to contract and therefore the appearance of wrinkles is reduced and the face has a softer and smoother appearance.
It’s important to note that the treatment is not permanent so it’s necessary to have new treatments every few months to maintain the positive effects. Botox can also be performed as a preventative measure to prevent new wrinkles from forming.
How do I avoid the ‘frozen face’ appearance?
We take a ‘less is more’ approach at Adonia, which means the results you get from Botox is a more youthful, refreshed version of yourself.
Can men and women benefit from this treatment?
Absolutely. Botox are an extremely popular form of treatment for both sexes. As men have become more concerned with their appearance over the last 10-15 years, there has been a drastic increase in the use of the injections for men.
Although it’s often used to treat wrinkles on the face and neck, it can also be used to control blinking and lazy eyes in people of any age or gender.
How much do Botox cost?
Adonia offer injections starting from just £220 per area, making them very affordable.
Is it safe?
Yes, Botox are very safe and has been used as a cosmetic treatment for over 15 years with no negative side effects associated.
Do the injections hurt?
Although there is a small pinching sensation when the solution is injected, the very fine needle that we use means the discomfort is minimal.
We also ensure that we tailor the experience to your needs and if necessary will administer pain killers and use dental block anaesthetic where required. Generally, ice is used as a topical anaesthetic.
Are there any negative side-effects?
Generally, the injections are free of any serious negative side effects but there can be some mild pain and tenderness around the injection points, though this should subside within 48 hours. On rare occasions, dropping around the eyebrows or eyelids can occur though this would also subside within a few weeks.
