Botox is short for botulin toxin type A (and is a brand name of the toxin made by the bacterium clostridium botulinum). It is a prescription-only medicine that has been used to treat wrinkles and facial creases. For decades Botox has provided us with a temporary, safe and effective solution to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, such as forehead botox, but it can also treat other conditions, including hyperhidrosis, chronic blinking, migraines, muscle spasms and more.
For the treatment of lines and wrinkles, forehead Botox is most commonly administered. To understand why, it is important to understand what Botox does. Each time we move our hands, see a friend, express sorrow, our brain’s neurons send signals around the body to express these actions and perform the desired functions. On the face, these expressions are commonly displayed on the forehead, which shows prominent lines and creases. The role of forehead Botox is to block the nerve signals from reaching the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to show. Forehead Botox works by being administered into the muscles of the forehead, preventing the release of neurotransmitters to move the forehead muscles.
Forehead Botox prices start from £200 and results start to develop after 1-2 days, with optimum results after around 7-10 days.
In addition to the treatment of lines and wrinkles, forehead Botox can also be administered to treat drooping brows, which can make patients look tired or unhappy even when they are not, treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) where patients sweat excessively and unpredictably, even when they may not be hot, reduce the impact of migraines and also treat Bell’s palsy by relaxing the movements on the dominant side of the face.
Before and during the treatment:
Forehead Botox is a medical treatment, and as such requires consultation and assessment to ensure your suitability for it. Your practitioner will discuss the benefits with you, as well as inform you of the risks. Provided you are suitable, and you proceed with forehead Botox, your practitioner will mark the areas for injection, and administer small doses of Botox. The injections ought not to hurt, as the needles we use to inject Botox are small.
After the treatment:
As soon as you have had forehead Botox, you may notice some redness, slight swelling or red bumps, and may develop a slight headache. These ought to resolve after the first 20-30 minutes. You shouldn’t touch or massage the areas.
You are unlikely to notice any difference for the first couple of days. Do not be alarmed – it does take time for the effects of Botox to start. Between days 2-8, you will start noticing some difference, with optimum results starting after around 10 days.
Forehead Botox results last around 3-4 months.
