Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on Botox.

Botox treatment and or Botox injections are used to soften and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines which can have a positive mental benefit for many people such as, increase in self-confidence and self-esteem.
Botox has fast become one of the most sort after effective non-surgical treatments to give people a younger, glowing, line free appearance. The youthful appearance takes between three to seven days to appear. The effects of the Botox treatment will last between four to six months. For best results, it is advised that Botox Injection re-application is required 3 to 4 times per year.
Botox injections are predominately used for:
Fines lines around the eyes or month
Frown lines

Botox is injected into the specific muscles with a very fine needle; this blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles. The Botox injected muscles can no longer contract, causing the specific facial muscles to relax; this in turn softens the facial lines.
Having the Botox treatment is safe, quick and there is minimal discomfort however all Botox treatments must is conducted by a professional, qualified and registered nurse. The Botox treatment takes around 30 minutes depending on the area being treated and does not require any anaesthesia.
The advantages of having Botox treatment are that there are very little side effects. The most common side effect of having the treatment is headaches, these resolve within 24 to 48 hours, however this is extremely rare. A small number of people following treatment have developed dropping eyelids. This occurs because when the Botox moves around, you are advised to not touch the treated area for 12 hours or more after the treatment. This will usually resolve itself within three weeks.
NOTE: Those considering becoming pregnant or are pregnant, breastfeeding or have any form of neurological disorder should not use Botox.

Botox parties

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on A Botox Party – A good idea or not a good idea?

A Botox party is a frequent conversation heard around some social circles. A social gathering at a friend’s home seems like a delightful idea, being in the comfort and safety of a home, lively chatter, food and drinks flowing. Although this sounds like a fabulous idea, the chances are there will not be any measures put in place to safe guard the client nor the doctor and to carry out the procedure safely and effectively.
If you choose to drink alcohol at a Botox party, many doctors will not carry out the procedure as the client will not fully understand the benefits and the risks associated with the Botox treatment. Also under the influence of alcohol a client increases their risk of bruising afterwards.
While Botox injections and treatments are safe, however, side effects and / or complications do occur such as, slight bruising around the injected area, discomfort and temporary muscle weakness. The next possibility is relatively low; however the toxin can spread to various parts of the client’s body. If there was a tiny possibility something may go wrong, being at a clinic, allowing the doctor access to help with a medical emergency will be beneficial.
If you are considering any form of Botox treatment, please use a qualified, reputable and experienced doctor. They will take a detailed medical history and the medication you are currently taking and see if Botox injection is right for you.

I summary avoid botox partiers and be treated in the sterile environment of a clinic.

botox to reduce signs of ageing

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on how your face changes over the years.

As we progress through life our face goes through many changes naturally, the aging process. However, environmental factor, such as sun exposure, wind, our life choices, such as smoking, drinking heavily have a dramatic effect on our skin. It is important to remember that healthy skin and a good skin care habit and routine starts in the early years and ideally must be maintained throughout the years.
As you go from childhood into adulthood, you begin to lose the ‘baby fat’ and your features are growing into adulthood. The facial changes that may possibly occur during the age of 20 to 30 are:
Beginning of fine lines which can be reduced with botox injections
Slight dullness of the skin
While in your 30’s you will still retain much of your youthful look, this is the decade when you may notice your skin looks tired and less radiant. The following facial changes may occur from the age of 30 to 40 years old:
The upper eye lids, the skin becomes saggy.
The outer corners of the eye develop crow’s feet
Frown lines appear on the forehead
Wrinkles start to appear around the nose and mouth corners
As you enter into your 40 to50’s the facial changes that occur are:
Same as above however the following may also occur:
Lower eyelid bags or in some cases the lower eyelids appear sunken
Lines between the eyebrows – treated via botox
Drooping on the outside of the eyebrows
Loss of fatty tissues under the cheeks
Deepening of the smile lines
During the age of 50 to 60 year old, the effects of gravity kick in:
Dropping of the eyebrows – uplifted via botox treatments
Many people find that the tip of their nose droops
Loss of tightness in the skin
Thinning of the upper and lower lip
Many of the facial changes pointed out above can be prevented, maintained and managed with the use of Botox and Dermal Fillers. All Botox treatments and Dermal Filler must be applied by an experienced and qualified Doctor.

Dermal fillers

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers – How can they reverse the sign of ageing?
As we get older our skin loses fat and collagens making it look saggy and wrinkled. Other factors also increase the ageing process such as sun exposure, smoking, poor diet, pollution and alcohol.
Dermal Fillers are a non-surgical injection that restores the collagens and fat to give you a longer lasting more youthful, plump and fresher look and target dynamic lines compared to botox that target motion lines.
How do dermal filler injections work?
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid in a purified form. Before the filler is injected, a local anaesthetic cream is used to numb the area of treatment. The filler is injected in to the desired area of the skin. This purified form of hyaluronic acid is used to build the collagen which restores the volume, lifts the sagging skin and plumps out the folds in the skin.
The dermal filler injections may cause a slight amount of discomfort (a small scratch) however it is not a painful. The dermal filler treatment will last up to 12 to 18 months.
There are a number of areas that dermal filler treatment can be used:
Laughter Lines
Frown Lines
Smokers Lines (these are the lines that appear on the upper lip)
Lines that run from the month to chin (Marionette Lines)
Correct hollowness around the eyes
Cheeks – Having this treatment will create a fuller, youthful lift and correct the laughter lines.
Hands – The Dermal Filler treatment will help to hydrate, lift and plump the hands and fingers, this will add volume in to the sagging skin.
Nose – Dermal Fillers are used to repair a crooked nose or build a higher nasal bridge

The possible side effects from using Dermal Fillers:

You may get a very small amount of bleeding and possibly a small bruise at the injection site due the needle being inserted.

Dermal fillers are normally used to plump up the skin compared to botox that target fine lines and wrinkles.
