Summer is just around the corner! The sun is shining, it’s peak wedding season and beach holidays are beckoning – which means it’s time to get your seasonal treatments sorted so you look and feel your best at this most sociable time of year. It might not seem the most obvious treatment to start with, but early summer is the perfect time for Botox.
The world’s most popular anti-ageing treatment, Botox is a fast, effective solution for facial lines and wrinkles, especially on the upper half of the face. It works by relaxing specific muscles, so they no can longer contract into deep grooves or worry lines – leaving your skin looking smoother, firmer and more youthful.
Look hot – not frozen
Our faces are naturally expressive all year round, but when the sun’s out, our eye area in particular works overtime (especially if your sunglasses spend more time on your head than over your eyes!). We’re all guilty of squinting and scrunching up our faces in strong sunshine, which exacerbates the development of crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox can stop these in their tracks with just one treatment, so you look younger and refreshed. And Botox isn’t just an effective solution to existing wrinkles – regular treatments also help to prevent future lines from forming.
At Courthouse Clinics, only qualified, experienced Doctors or Advanced Nurse Practitioners perform our Botox treatments. We’re committed to creating natural-looking results that subtly enhance your appearance, so there’s no need to fear the ‘frozen face’ effect!
Don’t sweat it
Botox is best known for banishing lines and wrinkles, but it’s also an effective solution for excessive sweating – a common problem, particularly during the summer months.
Also known as hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating can be inconvenient, embarrassing and upsetting. Natural sweating is regulated by the hypothalamus (the part of the brain that controls a number of metabolic processes). It sends signals to the body’s sweat glands through various nerves scattered across the body. For people with hyperhidrosis, the sweat glands overestimate these signals, and consequently over-produce sweat.
Botox for sweating has been clinically proven to provide relief for more than 93% of treated patients, achieving not only a reduction in sweating, but significantly decreasing body odour too. The treatment works by blocking a neurotransmitter that stimulates the sweat glands. The most common treatment areas are the feet and underarms, and the results last for months.
