Line and wrinkle treatments have been used as cosmetic treatments since the 1980’s, revolutionising the cosmetic industry due to its remarkable results combined with very few risks and no recovery time. Wrinkle relaxing injections have been used to treat millions of patients worldwide and is the worlds most popular non-surgical treatment.
The treatment known as Bocouture has been approved for cosmetic use and is ideal for easing over-active muscle movement that can cause deep frown lines and crows feet. It can also be used to reduce excess perspiration.
Wrinkle relaxing injections are commonly used to treat areas in the upper part of the face.
Our medical staff have enhanced their skills in Bocouture by training in advanced techniques. These techniques enable concerns such as bunny lines on the nose, gummy smile, jaws, lip lines and eyebrows to be treated.
Bocouture is beneficial when used in areas where muscle contraction causes lines to appear. These are termed dynamic lines. Bocouture cannot improve lines caused by ageing or sun damage as they are unrelated to facial muscle contractions. The treatment is safe with minimal discomfort.
Following a thorough consultation with the nurse or doctor. the areas you would like to be treated are identified and your skin is cleansed before small injections are given to the required areas. You will not need any topical anaesthetic before the treatment as a very fine needle is used.
Results are typically visible from 2-14 days and can last 3-6 months.
Following treatment, it is advised not to massage or touch the area treated for several hours. Do not bend down for 4 hours as these actions may contribute to adverse effects.
You may create active facial expressions for the first hour after treatment as this may help with the uptake of the product. Should you wish we at Future Hair & Beauty are happy to advise you further on the above treatment.
