Look your best this summer

Summer bodies are made in winter, or so the saying goes. If however you’re running a little late this year, happily Botox is one 21st century tweakment that ignores the rules.

So regardless of how the rest of your body is doing, you can still be assured of a younger, healthier and more radiant appearance. All it takes is a light, precise and professional touch for you to look your best this summer.

The rise of non-surgical treatments, or ‘tweakments’, has been relentless over the past couple of years and they now account for 9 out of 10 cosmetic procedures in the UK. It is easy to see why. The main advantages tweakments have over their surgical counterparts are subtlety, time and cost.

Non-surgical treatments provide a much gentler, natural-looking appearance afterwards and often require no down time. They let you still be you.

Please forget the old permanently surprised image of Botox – those days are long gone. Now people are more likely to think you’re looking well or ask if you’ve been on holiday, rather than notice you’ve had a procedure. With Botox, less really is more.

Equally popular with men and women, the treatment uses a small amount of naturally occurring Botox to relax specific facial muscles. The result is a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles which leaves skin looking smoother, younger and healthier.

“Botox is simple, effective and able to target many troublesome areas...

Squinting in the sun or to see if your selfie looks good a smartphone screen is a big cause of fine lines or ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes. Then again, so is smiling. While we may be able to cut down on squinting, showing our happiness with a smile should really be encouraged.

Thankfully, Botox applied around the eye area is brilliant at banishing those ageing lines and leaving us free to laugh in peace.

If forehead wrinkles are more of a problem for you, Botox can tackle lines there too. As we age our bodies naturally produce less collagen and elastin – encouraging wrinkles to form. Injected to the problem area however, Botox will prevent the relevant muscles from contracting and so give you a smoother brow. Less worry lines to worry about can only be a good thing, surely?

Even though summer is upon us, it’s not too late to take advantage of a ‘tweakment’ and face the lovely long days looking your best. I offer Botox from my clinic in Salisbury. Contact me by phoning 01722 632633 or 07493 520517 and get set for the season. Anyone for tennis? Or at least a Pimms?
