Why this popular facial aesthetics treatment is both safe and effective.
For a while now, we have been seeing an increasing number of patients come to the Confidental Clinic in Surbiton to receive facial aesthetics treatment. This perhaps, in spite of some of the ‘procedures that go wrong’ kind of TV programmes and magazine articles that seem to be popular these days. Whilst sensationalism is a great way to sell programmes, it rarely reflects the realities involved!
We should just say that, yes, some facial aesthetic procedures have gone wrong, sometimes producing significant unwanted facial changes. However, providing that you use a reputable practitioner, such as the members of our Surbiton facial aesthetics team, you should have nothing to worry about at all.
At our practice, we use Azzalure in our anti wrinkle treatments. The active ingredient in this is Botulinum A, commonly known as Botox. It is this ingredient that has received most of the negative publicity over the years, but in today’s blog, we look at the truth surrounding some of the scare stories about it.
It is true that Botox is a ‘toxin’, and, if used in excessive doses, could potentially be dangerous. However, the quantities used during anti wrinkle treatments are very small and should present no danger to our patients. Our team are fully trained and highly experienced, adding an extra layers of safety to this treatment. We will always discuss your general health and check to make sure that there are no circumstances why Botox would not be suitable at that time.
The effects of facial aesthetics can be extreme
Again, if used incorrectly, this is true, with the ‘trout pout’ being one of the most well known problems for patients seeking to have thinning lips plumped up, in this case using collagen fillers. It is probably notable that it seems to be celebrities who suffer from this, quite possibly due to requesting a more exaggerated outcome. Our team will offer full advice about the expected outcome of your treatment and reserve the right to refuse any treatment that we feel may be unsafe or result in too extreme an outcome.
