Finding a doctor-led Botox clinic in Lancashire can be difficult. It’s vital when selecting a clinic for non-surgical enhancement that you choose well, as your face is precious and should be treated as such.
Only medical professionals should be performing skin rejuvenation treatments such as wrinkle-smoothing injections (Botox) and dermal filler injections and therefore, it’s worth taking the time to research and find a clinic that adheres to GMC regulations, is accredited as a safe clinic by Save Face, and a doctor that has extensive experience in performing such procedures.
Care for Skin offers you just that. Our clinics in Burnley and Clitheroe (Lancashire) are havens for safe and effective anti-ageing treatments and our clinical director, Dr Sobia Syed is a fully-qualified and experienced aesthetic practitioner.
A range of injectable treatments at Care for Skin
For most of us, looks are important and to feel confident and happy in our skins, most of us seek natural and subtle ways to improve our facial appearance and skin quality.
Injectable treatments can offer temporary solutions for skin ageing such as dynamic laughter lines and wrinkles, volume loss and sagging skin around the cheeks, neck and jawline.
Wrinkle-smoothing injections and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can achieve a more youthful appearance and a pleasing facial shape.
Botox in Lancashire
Wrinkle-smoothing injections (or Botox as it is more commonly known) involve the injection of tiny doses of a substance called botulinum toxin type A into the muscles responsible for dynamic facial wrinkles. The Botox substance blocks signals from the nerves to the facial muscles which ‘relaxes’ them so that they can no longer contract. The result is that wrinkles relax and soften.
Botox injections can help with laughter lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows, also known as ‘elevens’). The treatment takes around 10 minutes to administer, and results can last anything from 3 to 6 months.
A skilled injector such as Dr Syed will achieve a natural result, where you can still create expression and look like the real you, just that bit younger!
Dermal fillers in Lancashire
Hyaluronic dermal fillers can assist with the reduction of static lines and wrinkles and can add volume to the lips, cheeks, chin and temples. Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar which is found in the joints, eyes, skin and connective tissues. As we age, our HA is depleted. HA helps to keep skin hydrated and youthful-looking, so over time, we may experience skin ageing, loss of volume, wrinkles and loss of laxity. In dermal fillers, the HA is suspended in a gel-like substance, which when injected physically ‘plumps’ out the skin. The HA can hold 1000 times its weight in water, therefore is a superb skin hydrator.
We regularly use fillers to treat the whole face, including the lips, jawline and under-eye area.
Dermal fillers are injected using a needle or cannula into the treatment area. It will usually be numbed beforehand using a local anaesthetic cream for your comfort.
Treatment can take between 15 and 30 minutes to administer and results can last anything from 4 to 12 months, depending on the area treated and the type of dermal filler used, as well as your natural response to the product.
Initial results are instant, though you may have a little swelling. Over time, your skin will improve, benefitting from increased hydration and texture. Generally we see the best results emerging 2 to 4 weeks post-procedure.
