Understanding Under Eye Wrinkles and Their Treatment:
As we age, the development of fine lines and wrinkles is a natural progression in our lives.
The onset and severity of these visible signs of ageing result from a combination of genetic factors and lifestyle choices. Over the years, repetitive muscle movements lead to creases and wrinkles in areas frequently engaged in facial expressions. These are commonly referred to as ‘dynamic lines,’ and they are the primary focus of our anti-wrinkle injections.
Botox, scientifically known as Botulinum toxin type A, is a purified neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This remarkable substance operates by blocking muscle impulses, effectively limiting muscle movement. At Secret Aesthetics, we use clinical-grade cosmetic Botox, a prescription-only medication, extracted, purified, and diluted from the original paralytic agent. Upon injection, it temporarily weakens the contraction of the targeted muscle. This results in the softening and relaxation of lines and wrinkles caused by the underlying muscle activity, ultimately creating a dramatically smoother and more youthful appearance.
While there is currently no reversal agent for Botox, the body naturally breaks it down over several months, allowing gradual muscle movement to return. The underlying concept behind Botox treatment is to reduce muscle movement in overactive areas, allowing the skin to rest and recover. This process softens and eventually fades skin creases and wrinkles. The treatment is highly customisable, 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:
At Secret Aesthetics, we recommend commencing Botox treatments before 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. Essentially, starting early makes it easier 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 individuals with a genetic predisposition.
The Botox Procedure at Secret Aesthetics:
Your journey to rediscovering youthful eyes begins with a comprehensive consultation.
Our doctor conducts a facial analysis and reviews your medical history, understanding your 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 specific treatment areas, 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 at Secret Aesthetics:
Results from Botox treatment for under-eye wrinkles generally become noticeable within 4 to 10 days.
If the desired outcome is not achieved within 14 days, additional treatment may be necessary. These results typically 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 optimise the effectiveness of your Botox treatment and ensure lasting results, we recommend the following:
– Avoid lying down for 4 hours after treatment to prevent Botox migration to the orbital area, which could cause eyelid drooping.
– Refrain from touching, applying makeup, massaging, or rubbing the treated areas, including facials, for 12 hours.
– Abstain from exercise for 24 hours.
– Stay clear of extensive sun exposure and heat, such as hot showers, saunas, and steam rooms, for 48 hours.
– Avoid 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
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.
