At Refresh Southwest we understand that looking good and the feel good factor are synonymous. Since the dawn of time mankind has strived to ward off the aging process. Science has yet to halt the actual aging process but has identified and purified naturally occurring neurotoxins (proteins) that are neuromuscular paralytic agents. These agents are used to block the facial nerves responsible for the muscle activity (spasms) that with constant use, associated with age, leads to the visual formation of the facial lines we commonly call wrinkles, worry/frown lines, crow’s feet and (ironically) laughter lines. Further as we age the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin slows, which enhances the appearance of these tell-tale facial lines.
At Refresh Southwest we offer an affordable, quick, long-lasting treatment that smooth’s out existing facial lines, helps to prevent the development of further lines and encourages the body’s own production of collagen and elastin. This treatment was once the preserve of the rich and famous.
The treatment takes only minutes and can last up to nine months before a further top-up treatment is required. There is minimal or no facial swelling or bruising. The treatment involves Refresh Southwest’s highly qualified doctor injecting (using micro needles) a precisely calibrated amount of the Botox™ into the facial muscles, which causes the muscles to relax and the tell-tale facial lines to smooth out and disappear, leaving you looking younger and fresher. Results are often instantaneous.
Our doctor also specialises in treating facial asymmetry, hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating), grinding of the teeth and migraines with Botox™. Pricing for the additional treatments will be discussed during your consultation.
Yes it is! It contains trace amounts of a toxin derived from bacteria called Clostridium botulinum, so small that it’s measured in nanograms. It also has decades of safety on its side, says neurologist Mitchell Brin, MD, chief scientific officer for Botox at Allergan (the company that makes Botox). It has been FDA-approved since 1989 (originally for eye muscle disorders) and was approved for smoothing wrinkles between the brows in 2002.
Anti-wrinkle injections cost as follows:
1 area: £200
2 areas: £275
3 areas: £325
Our doctor will be able to advise you as to how many areas you need treated at your consultation appointment. We charge a £50 consultation fee which is redeemable against treatment during the consultation appointment or at a later date up to six months.
