MULTI AWARD WINNING LUXURY AESTHETIC CLINIC
Smooth Out Your Chin with Botox:
Have you ever noticed an uneven, bumpy texture on your chin when you purse your lips together or pout?
These skin dimples, often referred to as a cobblestone chin, can be bothersome. Fortunately, Botox can be the solution to smooth out this textured appearance.
Understanding Cobblestone Chin and Its Treatment:
As we age, fine lines and wrinkles inevitably make an appearance.
The timing and severity of these wrinkles are influenced by a combination of genetics and lifestyle factors. Repetitive muscle movements throughout our lives result in creases and wrinkles in the areas most frequently used. These lines become most evident on our faces when we engage the muscles to make specific facial expressions. These lines are known as ‘dynamic lines,’ and these are the ones we address with anti-wrinkle injections.
Botox, scientifically known as Botulinum toxin type A, is a purified neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This remarkable substance works by blocking muscle impulses, effectively limiting muscle movement. The clinical-grade cosmetic Botox used at Secret Aesthetics is a prescription-only medication, meticulously extracted, purified, and diluted from the original paralytic agent. Once injected, it temporarily weakens the contraction of the targeted muscle, leading to the softening and relaxation of lines and wrinkles caused by underlying muscle activity, ultimately resulting in a dramatically smoother, more youthful appearance.
Although there is currently no reversal agent for Botox, the body naturally breaks it down over several months, allowing gradual muscle movement to return. The concept behind Botox treatment is to reduce muscle movement in overactive areas, giving the skin time to rest and recover. This process softens and eventually fades skin creases and wrinkles. The treatment is highly customizable, with adjustments in dosage and treatment frequency to achieve a more natural softening of expressions and lines or a complete smoothening of skin texture. In the initial years, more frequent treatments may be required to ‘re-educate’ the muscles.
The Importance of Early Intervention:
We strongly recommend considering Botox before your dynamic lines evolve into deep static lines—those that remain present even without expression.
The ideal timing varies from person to person and depends on factors such as genetics, lifestyle choices, and sun exposure. In essence, the earlier you start, the easier it is to correct and completely smooth out these lines, even with multiple sessions.
Botox can also serve a prophylactic role, preventing wrinkles and fine lines from becoming deeply etched into the skin. This is particularly beneficial for those with a genetic predisposition.
The Botox Procedure at Secret Aesthetics:
Your journey towards a smoother, wrinkle-free chin begins with a comprehensive consultation
Our doctor conducts a facial analysis and reviews your medical history and aesthetic expectations.
The treatment itself involves precisely controlled doses of Botox administered intramuscularly across the targeted areas using a microneedle. While the procedure is typically not painful, you may experience slight stinging discomfort. Depending on the number of areas treated, the entire procedure is usually completed within 15 minutes.
Possible Side Effects of Botox:
Following the procedure, you may experience tenderness and temporary redness in the treated area, which typically subsides within 72 hours.
Some individuals may notice a headache, usually resolving within 48 hours.
Bruising at the injection points is usually minimal but can vary from person to person. To minimise this risk, we conduct a thorough medical evaluation and recommend limiting alcohol intake for 48 hours before and after the procedure to aid recovery.
Your Botox Results:
Results from Botox treatment for a cobblestone chin typically become noticeable within 4 to 10 days.
If the desired outcome is not achieved within 14 days, additional treatment may be necessary. These results generally last between 3 to 6 months. In the initial stages of treatment, you may observe some muscle movement returning after one month, which is normal. This time frame varies from person to person and may necessitate adjustments in future Botox doses. With consistent treatments over several years, clients often find they require less frequent touch-ups.
Aftercare for Botox:
To maximise the effectiveness of your Botox treatment and ensure lasting results, we recommend the following:
– Avoid touching, applying makeup, massaging, or rubbing the treated areas, including facials, for 12 hours.
– Refrain from exercise for 24 hours.
– Stay clear of extensive sun exposure and heat, such as hot showers, saunas, and steam rooms, for 48 hours.
– Abstain from alcohol for 24 hours.
Please wait at least 7 days before considering chemical peels, laser treatments, or microdermabrasion.
Other treatable areas with Botox include:
Forehead Lines – Also known as ‘Horizontal lines’ are lines which appear and eventually become permanent from repeated raising of the eye brows.
Frown Lines – Lines in between our eyebrows. As the name suggests, they become apparent when frowning. Also known as the 11 lines or glabellar lines
Eye bag Wrinkles – Creases seen underneath and around our eyes more medial than crows feet. This treatment is often complimented with our 3-in-1 Eye Rejuvenation or with Crows Feet treatment
Bunny Lines – Wrinkles seen on the sides of the nose, often when smiling or scrunching your tightly.
Gummy Smile – The effects of a strong levator labii muscles, causing gums to show when smiling.
Eyebrow Lift – In some people, a lift can be created on the ends of the eyebrows by injecting Botox in specific areas of the forehead and outer eye.
