Anti-ageing treatments in Kent have never been better
Lines and wrinkles are a natural part of getting older, but that doesn’t mean we welcome them. There is no permanent solution to ageing, but you can still improve the condition of your skin with anti-ageing treatments. Getting older doesn’t necessarily mean you should look older, and a number of anti-ageing treatments now provide the solution to turning back the hands of time for that little bit longer.
At Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic we offer various types of anti-ageing treatments including muscle relaxing injections, dermal fillers, skin peels and skin tightening with Exilis Elite. One of the most popular cosmetic anti-ageing treatments at the clinic is Botox; a non-surgical cosmetic injectable that’s hugely popular world-wide and used by people who want to prevent the signs of ageing within the skin.
Botox as an anti-ageing treatment essentially freezes the facial muscles, which is an effective solution to ageing skin – it is a combination of overuse of the facial muscles and a decline in collagen levels that causes lines and wrinkles to form in the first place.
As we enter our late twenties, collagen production begins to slow down and as a result many of us find our skin can’t bounce back as well, and wrinkles are formed. Anti-ageing treatments like Botox allow patients to improve the look of visible signs of ageing, whilst also protecting against the formation of further lines and wrinkles.
It’s also a great alternative to lengthy surgical anti-ageing treatments – just 30 minutes in most cases is all the time it takes. You could even have it as a lunch time anti-ageing treatment and return back to your working day almost immediately.
Although Botox has a host of positives, the treatment still has some risks that patients should be aware of. Risks associated with Botox use include:
- bleeding at the site of injection
- chance of infection
- possible damage to the facial muscles and nerves
These risks are all unlikely (although the likelihood varies from patient to patient – your cosmetic doctor will be able to assess your suitability for Botox during your consultation) but should be considered nonetheless.
Dr. Alice Hudson-Peacock from Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic says:
“Botox treatment is well-known and well-practiced, and very often the results speak for themselves. Botox provides patients with a great anti-ageing and facial rejuvenation treatment, and it’s convenient, low-risk and time-effective. My main advice to prospective Botox patients is to do your research and scope out an experienced cosmetic professional, such as those here at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic.”
