I absolutely loved my time with Stephanie today. This was my first time getting lip filler. Stephanie completed a thorough consultation, put me at ease and answered all of my questions. Stephanie encouraged a really natural finish which is the main reason for booking in with her and I am so delighted with the results. Thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Results from botox are not linear, you will see the most profound effects for the first 8 weeks, then the effects will gradually start to diminish over the following weeks.

Results vary from person to person but most clients return roughly every 4 months

 

Aesthetics By Stephanie | Botox Timeline

Getting Botox is nothing to worry about and it’s our goal to keep our clients looking as natural as possible.

Before any treatment, we would get you in for a free consultation to review what you were after and to answer any questions that you may have.

It is best to leave 24 hours before heading to the pool or gym

Botox can take 2 weeks to fully settle in. If, at this time, you feel any area requires adjustment or topping up, then book in for a free review.

This is best carried out between 2-3 weeks after initial treatment.

By treating your frown lines without placing any Botox across your forehead then it will not affect your lids

Hooded eyes are not easy to treat, unfortunately.

Botox can help slightly but if they are very hooded then sometimes you are better spending your money on lid surgery instead.

The beauty of botox is that if you feel you don’t like it, it will wear off eventually without any long term effects and you’d not need to get it done again.

Botox may worsen your condition and you are better to wait until you are symptom free.

You should get your eyebrows done first before botox so that the tattooist can do them at their natural height and shape as botox can change this.

It can be difficult to improve smokers lines if you are adamant that you don’t want anything in your lips, as improving the volume here at least along the lip line will make a significant difference.

It also depends on how deep they are, as it can sometimes be a little botox that is required to soften them, or a combination with filler.

Ptosis is a medical condition characterised by drooping of the upper eyelid. This can happen when the Botulinum Toxin is injected too close to the levator muscle, which is responsible for lifting the eyelid. The ptosis is usually temporary and resolves within a few weeks after the injection.

This is why it is extremely important to have Wrinkle Relaxing Injections administered by a qualified and experienced healthcare professional who is familiar with the anatomy and function of the muscles in the face and eyes. The healthcare professional should also have knowledge of the recommended dosages and injection sites for the treatment of wrinkles around the eyes to minimise the risk of ptosis.

Over time, the ingredients in Botox break down into harmless chemicals called amino acids. The broken-down parts are either used to make other proteins or are thrown away by the kidneys. So, Botox either leaves your body completely or is turned into a safe form.

Stopping won’t hurt you in any way. There are no bad or harmful results. To put it simply, your muscles won’t be as loose. No matter how long you had Botox injections, you will still be able to move the area completely.

When the Botox wears off, the neurotransmitters cause the facial muscles to contract again, which causes the wrinkles to come back. As Botox slowly wears off, wrinkles like forehead lines, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet start to show up again.

But, and this is important, you might not look older than you did before. In fact, you might look younger.

Botox has a preventive effect, which means that in addition to treating wrinkles, it can also help stop them from appearing. When you use your facial muscles too much, you get dynamic wrinkles. Overusing the muscles that make you frown, laugh, etc. can cause wrinkles that get deeper and bigger over time. Because of this, they stay on your face even when you don’t smile or frown.

Botox injections, on the other hand, make the facial muscles weak for a short time. And, like all other muscles, the muscles get weaker and smaller when they aren’t used for a long time. So, if you get Botox injections regularly, the wrinkles that come with ageing will go away for good. Because of this, Botox injections can help you look younger for longer even if you don’t have wrinkles.

 

This is an increasingly relevant question, as more and more people are looking for ways to reduce the signs of ageing without resorting to medical procedures. Thankfully, there are a number of different treatments available that can help provide similar results.

One option is dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid or collagen injections. These treatments work by filling in wrinkles and lines around the face, making them appear less noticeable. They typically last anywhere from six months to two years depending on the type used. The benefits include immediate results and minimal discomfort during application.

For those looking for something even more natural, botanical extracts like green tea and aloe vera have been shown to be effective at reducing inflammation and increasing skin elasticity. Additionally, many skin care products now contain ingredients such as retinol or peptides which can help encourage cell turnover and stimulate collagen production – both essential components of keeping skin healthy and youthful-looking over time. Most importantly, daily application of SPF is an absolute must!!!!

Ultimately, it’s important to consult with a doctor before deciding on any treatment plan; however, there are many safe and effective alternatives available for those wishing to reduce the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles without using medical interventions.

This is an important question to ask before committing to a treatment regimen. In general, Botox treatments are considered safe when administered by a qualified professional. However, as with any medical procedure, there are possible side effects and risks associated with Botox injections.

Longer term health concerns are incredibly rare but may include eyelid drooping if injected too close to the eye area, muscle weakness due to migration of the toxin away from its intended target area, skin infection at the injection site, difficulty speaking or swallowing after receiving injections near your throat muscles, and vision problems due to nerve damage caused by accidental injection into an artery supplying blood to your eyes.

If you experience any serious adverse effects after having Botox injections it is essential that you seek medical attention immediately.

Yes, both men and women looking for a non-surgical way to achieve a slimmer face or reduce tension from teeth grinding can consider masseter Botox. The jaw slimming effects will be more dramatic in someone who starts with a bulky muscle.  However, an expert consultation is crucial to ensure suitability.

Post-treatment, you might notice your jawline beginning to appear softer and more contoured over time. The full effect typically emerges after two to four weeks, with results lasting up to 6 months.

It varies from person to person, but most swelling occurs in the first 24-48 hours then starts to go down.

Some people have very little and don’t need any downtime and can go about their daily life straight away, although we wouldn’t plan it right before an important event just in case.

We don’t recommend using sunbeds for 2 weeks after filler treatment as you can get increased swelling.

In order to address the lines at the side of your mouth you’d require some filler. It’s important to note that the lines won’t disappear completely but will look much better.

Potential side effects of marionette line treatments can include bruising, swelling, redness or tenderness. You might also experience uneven results or lumps, and in rare cases, infection or allergic reactions could occur.

Sure, healthier habits can help. Regular exercise tightens your skin, while a balanced diet boosts collagen production. So, you’re combating marionette lines naturally. However, it won’t erase them like treatments do.

Yes, natural remedies can help treat marionette lines. Regular facial exercises can tone the muscles and promote blood flow. Hydrating well, eating a healthy diet, and avoiding sun exposure could also reduce these lines.

Yes, there’s a genetic predisposition to developing marionette lines. Your genes can influence how your facial skin ages and loses elasticity over time, which can contribute to the formation of these lines.

Like a master chef selects ingredients, choose skincare products with retinol and peptides. They’re known to stimulate collagen production, helping to smooth marionette lines over time. Consult a dermatologist for personalised advice.

As you age, your skin loses elasticity and collagen, the proteins responsible for maintaining its firmness. This leads to sagging and deepening of nasolabial folds, making them more noticeable with time.

Yes, your nasolabial folds can be hereditary. Your genes play a role in determining your skin’s elasticity and fat distribution, both of which can influence the development of these smile lines.

Yes, certain facial exercises can potentially lessen the appearance of your nasolabial folds. By toning and strengthening the underlying muscles, you’re able to create a naturally fuller and smoother look over time.

Surgical treatment for smile lines carries risks like infection, scarring, and nerve damage. It may also result in asymmetry or an unnatural look. Always discuss potential risks with your surgeon before proceeding.

Like a thief robbing you of youth, smoking accelerates skin aging. It reduces blood flow and damages collagen, making your skin lose its elasticity quicker. This eventually deepens your nasolabial folds or smile lines.

The treatment works by injecting Neofound superficially into the desired area, the cocktail of rejuvenating ingredients works together to stimulate new collagen production to feed the skin at a cellular level, so the skin appears brighter, whiter and tighter.

Neofound is not suitable:

  • When pregnant or breastfeeding
  • For people who suffer hypertrophic or keloid scarring
  • For people who are currently, or in the previous 18 months, have used Roaccutane (acne treatment)
  • For people with blood coagulation disorders

Depending on the sensitivity of your skin and any medications (like aspirin, ibuprofen, and other blood thinners) you may be taking, there is the chance of temporary, minor side effects including:

  • Small bumps may appear directly after treatment at or around the injection site
  • Mild swelling at or around the injection site
  • Mild tenderness, bruising or redness at or around the injection site


All risks and side effects will be discussed in depth at your appointment.

Most people notice improvements within two to four weeks following the treatment.

Most patients describe the injections sensation as a mild pinch or a bit like a sting from a bee.

This varies depending on individual skin condition and desired results. On average, patients undergo three to five treatments. Treatments should be spaced two weeks apart. After this, top up sessions every 1-3 months are advised.

It is recommended to wait at least 24 hours before applying makeup to let your skin heal properly.

Yes, Neofound is safe and effective for all skin types.
