Planning of treatment and understanding an individuals needs and linking that to the assessment of facial shape contour and lines is a vital aspect in obtaining good results.
This requires a detailed consultation in order for our doctors to understand the needs of the client and assessment. Many treatments cases will follow set pathways particularly if the findings and demands fall into a similar box. For more challenging cases where a number of parts of the face need attention and a fine balance needs to be obtained or even in cases when there is very little in way of facial ageing and treatment needs to be very delicate it is often helpful to have a number of expert opinions. Here at myskindesign in view of the fact we have a multi disciplinary team including both Consultant Dermatologist with a specialist knowledge of skin and skin ageing and a Consultant Plastic Surgeon with a specialist knowledge of facial structure and anatomy we are able to discuss more challenging cases in order to obtain the best outcome. We tailor our treatments to the individual providing bespoke packages whether that be just botox, or just dermal filler or just skin treatment or it may be any number of combination and in some cases even delivered at different times.

What is Botox?
Botox is a prescription only medicine which relaxes the contraction of muscles by blocking nerve impulses. The result is muscles that can no longer contract, and so the wrinkles relax and soften. It usually takes two to four days to see cosmetic improvement and the effects tend to last from four to six months. Most patients require re-treatment to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each injection the wrinkles return as less severe as the muscles are trained to relax.
How is it administered?
The procedures do not require anesthesia and usually take just a few minutes to perform. The protein is injected into the muscle using a fine needle in order to minimize discomfort and maximize accuracy. It is recommended that patients avoid alcohol for about a week before the procedure. For cosmetic procedures, a study published in Dermatologic Therapy found that men need a higher dose of Botox than women. Despite this at myskindesign we do not charge a higher cost for treating men.

It is most commonly injected into the muscles of the forehead and between the eyes(the scowl area).It also works really well for the laughter lines by the sides of the eyes.
