One of the best-known and requested cosmetic treatments in the world is Botox Cosmetic. Botox injections have increased in popularity for the last few decades, both for wrinkle treatment and other cosmetic uses. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio and our team at London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring are happy to offer Botox injections for our patients who want a safe and effective option for achieving their aesthetic goals.
Botox is a neuromodulator, a form of botulinum toxin (type A) that blocks nerve signals to the muscles. When used for cosmetic procedures, Botox injections can relax facial muscles that cause dynamic lines or undesirable facial features. Botox is best known for eliminating frown lines and furrows on the brow, but injections are also used for crow’s feet, bunny lines, gummy smiles, neck cords and reducing masseter muscles.
Safe Botox Treatments
Dr. Del Vecchio is a highly respected and board certified plastic surgeon who offers Botox treatments in London. He has been a practicing plastic surgeon since 1992 and has extensive experience using Botox injections for safe and effective results. Proper placement and dosage are important to achieve the desired results.
Botox treatment can be performed in a short visit to our facility in London. Most patients can be in and out in about 15 minutes for Botox injections. The treatment is not painful, and no downtime is needed. The most common side effects from Botox treatment are slight swelling or bruising at the injection points, but these effects dissipate quickly.
Botox requires a few days to notice the effects. Most people will see the difference in their frown lines or other treatment areas in about five days. Botox treatments are temporary – they last about 3-4 months before they need to be repeated.
If you have crow’s feet, brow furrows, frown lines or other dynamic lines, Botox injections may be the solution for a more youthful face.
