General Introduction to the uses of Botox.
For lines and wrinkles that are caused when muscles contract, IE not visible at rest but only visible during expression, Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra etc are not a suitable solution and should not be considered. Botox, Dysport, or Vistabel are all strains of the same Toxin and each will offer a solution for frown lines, crows feet, and other dynamic wrinkles.
Upper and Lower face Botox Treatments.
Tinkable offer Botox treatments for both upper face and areas of the lower face.
Information is given below using Botox treatments as an example, but the same applies to all the above toxins.
Botox Injections, Vistabel Injections, and Dysport Injections are all types of Muscle Relaxants. And without exception, they need to be prescribed on every account.
Medical History and Medications.
If you are considering a Botox treatment, please complete the medical questionnaire on our home page, it allows our medical prescribers to examine and asses your suitability for treatment before you come, saving you time etc. It may be that a medication you are taking may render the treatment less effective.
Botox was first approved in 1989 in Italy to treat patients with facial spasm disorders. It became increasingly apparent that crows feet and frown lines were diminishing and softening and in many cases vanishing altogether.
Botox is a muscle relaxant agent which is produced from bacteria. It's method of action interferes with muscle contraction to enable the botox to smooth out lines and wrinkles with extremely effective and long lasting results.
Current Uses for Botox.
Botox treatments are now the UK's most popular cosmetic treatment and was recently approved by the FDA in the US.
In a cosmetic field, Botox effectively treats horizontal frown lines, crows feet and vertical frown lines. Botox is licenced for the treatment of under arm sweating and more recently for the treatment of migraines. Most of its uses with in the aesthetics field are extremely effective and most strains have achieved various levels of either FDA approval or UK licensing.
Botox Treatment and Results
Following a thorough medical consultation the procedure is very simple, virtually painless, leaving minimal trace of treatment.

Choosing who and were to be treated.
When considering a Botox treatment price is important, we all like to get value for money. However, please be aware of extremely low botox prices offered by inexperienced practitioners, and above all avoid at all cost treatment with non-medical practitioners. They are illegal.
When having Botox your results will last in the region of 2 to 4 months. Any imperfections of treatment will also last that length also. So rather then choosing the cheapest why not chose the best. Ask how many years your practitioner has been doing these treatments and how many patients a day they treat.
They should have at least 3 -5 years experience and be seeing at least 5 to 7 people each day for Botox treatment. Confident practitioners will offer a free check up, but make sure it’s the same practitioner who did the initial treatment.
