While the current economic climate has seen many people cut back on their food and shopping bills, social life and extra luxuries, one area that seems recession-proof is Botox and other facial aesthetics treatments.
Botox at Morley Aesthetics continues to be a popular treatment option, not just for the select few, but for people of all ages and backgrounds. When you consider the benefits of Botox and similar treatments, its enduring popularity is understandable.
Botox has been used for more than 20 years as a wrinkle reduction treatment. It has a proven safety record and is widely recognised to be a fast, simple and cost effective beauty treatment. Ten years ago, Botox came with a luxury price tag, making it desirable to the rich and famous, and something to which the rest of us could only aspire. Since then, it’s increasing demand has led to falling prices and wider use across the population. Successful professionals, busy mums, bridal parties, and even students are now using Botox as a regular part of their beauty regime.
Because the effects of Botox at Morley Aesthetics last for a period of three to five months, people feel that the money they spend on Botox wrinkle reduction injections is money they no longer have to spend on expensive creams and lotions. To most, it’s a fair trade because the results of Botox injections are much more noticeable.
Botox is also a popular facial aesthetics treatment because of its psychological effects. Our patients tell us that regular Botox treatments leave them looking and feeling more confident about their younger appearance. More so than a hair cut or new outfit, Botox gives people a psychological boost every time they look in the mirror. This, in turn, gives them the self-esteem to face the world with a smile on their face and embrace new opportunities as they arise.
It’s great to see our Botox treatments at Morley Aesthetics giving so many people a new lease of life in these challenging times.

What is Botox?
Botox is a brand name for a type of injection that uses Botulinum toxin A (Dysport® and Azzalure® are other examples), a licensed neurotoxin that temporarily weakens and paralyzes the muscles responsible for developing facial expression lines caused by muscle activity. By making the muscles stay still, it’s possible to achieve noticeable wrinkle reduction on the face and neck.
How safe is Botox?
Botox has an excellent safety record and is tolerated by the majority of people. It tends to have minimal side effects and complications but, as with all prescription medicines, it should be administered by a specially trained and experienced professional. Here at Morley Aesthetics we have extensive experience of using Botox.
How long does Botox treatment take?
Most Botox injection procedures take 10 to 15 minutes.
What is the recovery time?
You should not require any downtime after your treatment. You may return to work or continue your usual daily activities straight away.
When should I see results?
After Botox injections, you should see noticeable wrinkle reduction two to eight days later. The results typically last for three to five months but this can vary depending on your individual response.
