Is Botox for me?

Is Botox for me?

So we are all pretty good at spotting the frozen face of too much Botox in friends, colleagues, in newsreaders and on reality TV shows. This is an example of Botox which has not been placed in the right muscle, in the right place, in the correct dose. At the Da Vinci Clinic we like to start with the lowest dose, and while this might mean you need to come back for a top up sooner, until we know how you respond and what look is right for your own personal optimal outcome, this method produces the most subtle and natural look. We believe starting these low dose treatments when fine lines begin to appear, will provicde the best anti-ageing strategy. Botox relaxes the muscles that create the lines. Once the deeper lines are already formed, more Botox is needed to erase them and sometimes the use of natural, mealleable dermal fillers too. Why not find the right prescription for you? Each new patient at our clinic is seen by one of our specialist doctors, in consultation with our appearance medicine nurses. We are happy to discuss cost, time frames and more. Botox treatments generally take around two weeks to be fully effective, whereas dermal filler treatments are immediate.
