The Christmas countdown has well and truly begun. With just seven (SEVEN!) weeks to the big day, it’s time to get your party prep sorted so you can dazzle this December.
One of the fastest and most effective treatments is Botox, which is why it’s the most popular anti-ageing treatment in the world. Originally used for a variety of medical purposes, Botox is now a versatile injectable that relaxes facial muscles, which in turn softens frown lines and crow’s feet, resulting in smoother, firmer-looking skin. It’s particularly suited to wrinkles on the upper half of the face, on the forehead and especially around the eyes.
How does Botox work?
Botox is the brand name of the Botulinum toxin, which temporarily weakens muscles when injected into them. This gets rid of wrinkles by paralysing the muscles that gather the skin into folds, which in turn leads to a smoother appearance. But the effect isn’t permanent. Botox wears off after a few months, and the muscles start moving/working normally again.
All of our experienced injectors specialise in delivering a subtle rejuvenated look, so your face looks fabulously refreshed rather than fixed and frozen. Botox is safe, swift to administer, and the results last for up to six months.
For full-face rejuvenation, Botox is often used in conjunction with Dermal Fillers – an ideal choice to tackle signs of ageing on the lower half of the face. Dermal fillers are made from a synthetic substance that mimics the body’s levels of hyaluronic acid – responsible for boosting skin elasticity and hydration. Unfortunately, as we age, our hyaluronic acid levels begin to deplete, resulting in sagging, bagging and a noticeable loss of volume. At Courthouse Clinics we offer a variety of dermal fillers, which are perfect for plumping your skin, softening wrinkles and filling deep lines, leaving you looking smoother and fresher.
Plump up your pout
Dermal/Lip Fillers can also be used to plump up your pout. The luscious, full-lipped look is still ultra-popular, fuelled by certain celebrities (step forward Angelina Jolie and most of the Kardashian clan). Done well, a plumper pout can transform your entire look – and injectable lip fillers are one of the best ways to achieve this. Importantly, lip fillers don’t just add volume – they can also be used to reshape uneven lips and/or enhance definition.
Best of all, lip fillers are another fast fix ahead of the party season. As a rough guide, the treatment takes around 30 minutes, the results are visible immediately – and typically they last for 6-9 months.
This trinity of treatments is the perfect combination to indulge in as the party season approaches. But diaries are already filling up fast, so don’t delay. Call 0203 907 8828 to book your appointments and put your best face forward this party season!
