Botox® and Wrinkle Treatments

Frequently asked questions


What is Botulinum Toxin?

It is a purified protein produced by the clostridium bacterium and is used in extremely small amounts to relax dynamic wrinkles, caused by the contraction of muscles. the popular brand names used in the UK include, BOTOX®, DYSPORT and Vistabel.


Is it safe?

Treatment is widespread in medical practice and in trained medical hands proven to be safe and effective. Side effects are minimal and severe allergic reactions to injections do not occur. Botulinum toxin is used in much higher doses to treat migraines and extensive medical safety record, having been used for more than 20 years to treat neurological and ophthalmological disorders. The treatment is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.


How does Botulinum Toxin Work?

Wrinkles and frown lines are the result of muscle activity and contraction. Tiny injections are administered very precisely into specific muscles. This blocks the nerve impulse from reaching the body of the muscle causing relaxation. The overlying skin becomes smooth and unwrinkled.


Does it hurt?

An anaesthetic cream is applied before treatment to numb the area, so discomfort is minimal. There may be a mild stinging sensation during treatment, and a transient headache has occasionally been reported following treatment. You can request the doctor to apply the topical anaesthetic for a longer period if you have previously felt the injections to be uncomfortable.


What areas can be treated?

The most common areas treated are the frown lines between the brow, the forehead, crows feet around the eyes and less commonly the mouth and neck.


What can be expected following treatment?

Effects can take 3 to 10 days to become visible, and will generally last up to 6 months. Your doctor will offer to review your results after treatment to ensure that the optimum results have been achieved. If you decide to discontinue treatment your wrinkles will gradually return to the way they were before treatment.


Possible side effects

Occasionally a small bruise may occur at the injection site, which can be covered with makeup. Some patients report a mild headache and a temporary wooden feeling which passes quickly. In rare circumstances a temporary brow or eyelid droop may occur which may last a few weeks. The physician will assess each patient prior to treatment and based upon the clinical examination is able to advise who would be the most at risk of these events and alter treatment plan accordingly.


Precautions following treatment

Exercise should be avoided for 4 hours after treatment, and the area should not be massaged for three days. You should remain in an upright position for 4 hours following treatment to limit the spread of substance at the injection site. Facials and massage of area treated should be avoided for three days after treatment.


Is this treatment for everyone?

Men and women who would like a more relaxed appearance will enjoy the benefits of botulinum toxin. There are very few restrictions, but treatment will not be given if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have certain neurological conditions.

Dermal FIllers and Enhancements

Frequently asked questions


What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments to reduce appearance of lines and folds. The results you achieve will depend on the area of the face which is treated, how much movement there is in the treated area, the condition of the skin and the skill of the person performing the treatment. Juvederm® is preferred product used by the physicians at Just Beauty Studio. It is composed of Non-Animal Stabilised Hyaluronic Acid, a substance found naturally in human body. It is fully biocompatible and degradable, and the risks are very low


Is treatment safe?

Juvederm® is used because it does not contain any animal derivatives, so there is no risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction. No pre testing is required, but you should avoid aspiring and non steroidal anti-inflammatory medication prior to treatment.


How does it work?

It is clear gel that once injected beneath the surface of the skin adds volume and lift to smooth out wrinkles and folds. The Hyaluronic acid in Juvederm® gel is almost identical to that within body. It will integrate into the dermal tissue and attract and bind water molecules to help maintain volume. Juvederm® is gradually degraded over time naturally.


Does treatment hurt?

Topical anaesthetic cream will be applied to the treatment area. Local anaesthetic may also be used to numb the area at patient request.

If you are prone to bleeding you may get a small puncture site bruise. If you suffer from cold sores propbylactic treatment can be given. There are some very rare side effects such as granuloma formation and skin breakdown which occur under exceptional circumstances. These conditions can be treated by the attending physician.
