Botox® and Bocouture® In Norwich

What is Botox®?
Wrinkles, fine lines and furrows are a completely natural part of the ageing process – but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with them. Here at The Doctors Laser Clinic, our expert practitioners are able to come up with a tailored anti-wrinkle plan for you, ensuring maximum results and longevity is achieved.
How injections works is by essentially ‘switching off’ the nerve endings in muscles, causing them to relax. The muscle in question is no longer able to contract – this then softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles with the skin covering these muscles able to regenerate. Anti-wrinkle treatments can also be used in the armpits to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Treatments will be discussed with you in more detail during your initial consultation, so that we can come up with what suits you best. As well as anti-wrinkle treatments, we offer filler treatments. Hyaluronic (HA) fillers are simply used as ‘volumizers’ plumping and lifting cheeks, jawlines, filling out thin lips or reshaping uneven lips. The fillers plump up the tissue underneath the skin, smoothing wrinkles. As a result the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and younger looking!
Enhancing wrinkles with Hyaluronic Acid, a natural ingredient in our skin delivers a natural look and feel to the problem areas.
Botox® treatments are able to treat a number of areas on the face and body including Forehead Lines, Glabella/Frown Lines, Crow’s Feet, Bunny Lines, Peri-oral Lines (Smoker’s Lines), Marionette Lines, Mentalis Dysfunction (Chin “Dents”), Vertical Platysma Bands and Brow Lift.
Treatment may also be used for Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) and Migraines.

Frequently Asked Questions
During your consultation with us, we’ll answer any questions or concerns you may have.
During treatment, the solution will be injected directly into the muscles of the treatment area using a fine needle. As the needle is so small, it’s unlikely you’ll experience any pain; the most you’re likely to feel is a little sharp discomfort as the substance is injected.
A series of these injections will be administered, with a typical treatment session expected to last no longer then 15-20 minutes.
If you don’t instantly notice results after your first session, this is completely normal. Visible results are typically seen after around 7-9 days of treatment, but it could take up to 21 days for the full effect to develop.
The anti-ageing results can last anywhere between 2-5 months, meaning the results of this treatment aren’t permanent. To maintain a youthful, smooth complexion, you’ll likely need a series of top-up procedures between 2-4 times per year.
