Yes, you will see a trained doctor for your consultation and for your procedures at the clinic
The aim of the consultation is to understand what it is that you want to achieve in terms of facial appearance. What bothers you and what options are available to enhance your appearance. Examples include relaxing deep lines in the forehead area with botox injections, or a desire to have fuller lips or more prominent cheekbones with the use of filler injections. We also offer treatments for chronic migraines and/ or teeth grinding so the doctor would explain if this is suitable for you. Once the doctor has talked you through the options you may opt to have treatments done at that appointment or you can go away to consider what you wish to have done and then book a follow up appt.
The simple answer is hardly at all - Botox in injected with a tiny needle – much smaller than a sewing needle. When the needle goes through the skin you may feel a tiny sting – after that you will barely feel it.
When injecting fillers you may feel the pressure sensation as the gel is being pushed into the facial lines. The filler products we use at NMLondon have local anaesthetic mixed in with the filler to reduce discomfort.
For people who do feel discomfort when the needle goes in - we can put some numbing cream on the skin first to reduce this sensation.
The lip area is the most sensitive area and so numbing cream is applied prior to doing lip filler injections.
Yes, you can go back to work straight after a procedure. You may have some slight swelling and/or minimal bruising. This can be covered with some light makeup. If you feel some discomfort after the procedure you could take 2 paracetamol tablets as required.
Yes, you can eat and drink afterwards but please avoid alcohol for the first 24 hours as it may increase the chance of bruising.
With both these procedures it takes approximately 2 weeks to see the full effect and it takes a few days for any bruising or swelling to go down. So I would always suggest at least 2 weeks before a big event so that the maximal effect is visible.
NMLondon Aesthetics only offers treatments to adults - we do not treat those aged below 18 years..
The main thing is to be clear what you want to achieve and what can be done using botox and fillers.
Fillers can be used by young and old to enhance lip fullness and cheek bones. It also has a use to fill deep-set lines in the face that tend to occur with age.
Botox injections can be use to relax facial lines which are caused by over active facial muscles. In younger people this can include lines that are only visible when a person frowns or raises their eyebrows. Regular botox every 3 months or so will gradually relax and weaken the over-active muscle causing the lines so that over time the lines become less deep and less prominent even when the botox wears off.
We advise that you not have Botox more often than once every 12 weeks. Ater the treatment you may need a slight tweak or top up of Botox at 2 weeks and then no further Botox should be administered til week 12. In theory, if a person has botox done too soon after the first injection they may develop antibodies to the botox which means it won‘t work as well in the future. This is the reason for leaving a gap in between treatments.
We advise not to do any vigorous exercise for 24 hours after the injection to prevent the toxin moving to another muscle. But after that, you may exercise normally.
No Botox has many other uses. Botox injections have been used for decades in the field of medicine for a variety of medical conditions – including muscle spasms and excessive sweating.
At NMLondon in addition to offering anti- wrinkle injections we also offer Botox injections into the armpits for excessive sweating, botox injections for chronic migraine headaches and botox injections into the jaw muscle to treat excessive teeth grinding.
The procedures are carried out by a highly trained medical doctor. All procedures can have some side effects – with botox this can occur if the botox moves from where it has been injected to another muscle causing another muscle to relax - the risk of this happening is reduced by good injection technique and careful aftercare which is explained to all clients have botox at NMLondon.
it is very important to always see a qualified professional when having these treatments to ensure it is done safely.
Fillers can cause pressure on a blood vessel and this can cause swelling and skin damage. This is prevented by careful injection technique and careful follow up of the client and the filler product can be dissolved if it is causing a problem.
The advantage of both botox and fillers is that they are not permanent treatments and do wear off with time. Botox injections last for approximately 12 weeks and fillers last for approximately 9 months.
