WHAT ARE ANTI – WRINKLE INJECTIONS?
Botulinum Toxin Type A (BOTOX) is an anti – wrinkle treatment which is a medical product containing small amounts of the highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium. Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum (a bacterium that causes food poisoning) called botulinum toxin. The product is administered in small injections to reduce specific muscle activity by blocking the overactive nerve impulses that trigger excessive muscle contractions or glandular activity which result in diminishing wrinkles.
WHO IS SUITABLE FOR BOTOX?
During your face to face consultation Chloe will assess whether Botox is the right treatment for you. If your face is relaxed and the dynamic lines appear static, then this is a good time to consider Botox before the lines develop any deeper.
If you are 18 and above, you are eligible for this treatment.

THE PROCESS OF A BOTOX TREATMENT?
⦁ Before any treatment Chloe believes as an Aesthetic Practitioner that a face to face consultation is a vital step before undergoing any treatment.
⦁ Discovering the client’s unwanted flaws during a 1:1 consultation with Chloe will determine which treatment is suited for each client. An in depth, honest consultation will take place to ensure each individual’s desired results are met.
⦁ Chloe feels it is extremely important to build a personal relationship with her clients, feeling rest assured they feel 100% relaxed and comfortable before going ahead with any treatment.
⦁ Administrating Botulinum Toxin – small quantities of Botox are injected directly into the affected muscle. Nerve endings release a chemical substance called acetylcholine which transmits contraction information to the muscle. The Botulinum Toxin temporarily blocks the release of acetylcholine. The muscle is then relaxed, and the wrinkles appear reduced. The needle is very thin and small causing the client no pain.
⦁ Post-treatment your eyes will function just as normal, the only thing you will notice is you will be wrinkle free! A tailored treatment plan will be carried out with each individual making sure every client feels completely satisfied with their results.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
Post-treatment you should start to see an improvement within 2 to 3 days. After two weeks the Botox should have kicked in however if not Chloe offers a complimentary two-week review if you require more.
MAINTENANCE & HOW LONG WILL BOTOX LAST?
Botulinum Toxin A will gradually wear off as the muscles start to contract again. It usually lasts around 3 – 6 months however it can be shorter / longer depending on the client’s individual factors. If you repeat the treatment of Botulinum Toxin you will find that after 3 – 4 sessions, you will be able to pro long your next treatment as the muscles will have weakened, this does not cause any harm or damage in any way.
HOW IS BOTULINUM TOXIN PRICED?
Chloe will make the treatment process cost effective and beneficial for the client, any queries, concerns and questions will be answered.
