Latest Trends in Botox 16-05-2012

The Times newspaper ran an article this week describing the latest trends in botox - the substance used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles on the face.

When botox was first popularised (and gained FDA approval in the USA) for wrinkle treatments 10 years ago, surgeons used to aim for a perfectly smooth skin and eliminate wrinkles as much as the treatment would allow. This led to detractors commenting adversely on the 'botox look'. The Times report discusses the latest trend in anti-wrinkle treatments which is the 'less is more' concept.

At Ock Street Clinic in Abingdon, Oxford our surgeon Ric Caesar has always advocated this approach where lower doses of botox are used which aims to leave your facial muscles still mobile, enabling you to elicit natural facial expressions, but relaxing the muscles enough to reduce wrinkles to a minimum. The Times article goes on to describe the modern approach where botox is combined with dermal fillers like Juvederm, Teosyal and Restylane, this technique gives clients a new look that has been called the "New, New Face" with plumper cheeks and a slim elegant chin as well as reduced wrinkles. This is the look that Ric can offer his clients at Ock Street.
