Botulinum toxin is an innovative technique that makes your face look radiant while erasing your wrinkles. Botox® injections have evolved over time and are now a leading technique used to make you look younger! This procedure is popular, virtually painless, and has a short recovery period. If you have wrinkles that burden your daily life and that you would like to erase, Botox® is the solution!

The results are immediate and superb! Thanks to these injections, you will look more relaxed and well rested. A trained and experienced cosmetic doctor must administer these injections so that the results meet your expectations.

Expression wrinkles are often the result of repeated facial muscle contractions from showing emotions such as smiling, being shocked, being upset, or worrying. Over the years, these wrinkles become more and more visible. They can even make you look stern, unhappy, or distressed. These wrinkles are the product of excessive facial muscle contractions. Botox® /botulinum toxin will tighten your skin to avoid these muscle contractions. By weakening these muscles, botulinum toxin stops these wrinkles from developing to prevent signs of aging. Signs of aging will disappear to reveal smoother, younger, more relaxed-looking skin.

Doctor Lemierre has been practicing cosmetic medicine for over 10 years in Bordeaux and Royan and is specialised in Botox® injections/botulinum toxin. His knowledge and experience of the facial muscle anatomy allows him to meet all your needs, desires, and expectations. He will do everything to help you look younger and ease the features of your face that may make you seem stern, worried, or tired.

The results are natural and you will still have frontal muscle and eyebrow mobility; you will not look ‘frozen.’ If you would like to remove facial wrinkles, soften your features, and look radiant, Botox® /botulinum toxin is the solution.

Summary:

Why choose to have Botox® injections/botulinum toxin?


At any age, expression wrinkles can appear on your face. This can be inconvenient and make you look tired or upset. Both men and women suffer from this on a daily basis. More and more people find wrinkles to be unsightly. Botox® injections/botulinum toxin can make your wrinkles disappear and will help you look and feel younger and more rested, without needing surgery.

Botox® injections are becoming more and more common due to their effectiveness. You can choose to have Botox® injections as young as 18 years old. You can receive Botox® injections much earlier than hyaluronic acid injections. Botox® can also be used as a preventative measure. If you are in your 20s and wrinkles are beginning to appear that you wish to treat, you can make an appointment with Doctor Lemierre. The goal is to stop your wrinkles from getting deeper. The longer you let your muscles contract, the deeper your wrinkles will be, and the harder it will be to erase or diminish them.

The facial zones that can be treated by Doctor Guillaume Lemierre:

  • Frown lines, between your eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet (external corner of your eyes)
  • Forehead horizontal lines
  • Smile lines, at the corners of your mouth
  • Neck lines
  • Nose and perioral lines, etc…

Attention, Botox® injections/botulinum toxin is not recommended for pregnant or breast feeding women, or if you are taking antibiotics, anticoagulants, or anti-inflammatory medicines. Doctor Lemierre will not be able to perform this procedure if you are hypersensitive to Botox® or if you are suffering from myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton Syndrome.

What are the advantages and possible inconveniences/risks?


Botox® injections/botulinum toxin can make you look younger, more relaxed, and radiant by softening your features. Botox® injections/botulinum toxin are a good option if you do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure. This innovative cosmetic medicine technique requires no surgery, no break from your social life, a short recovery period, and immediate results. All of these factors have a positive impact on the price of the treatment. Botox® injections/botulinum toxin are within your financial reach.

The sessions are short and efficient. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment. The results will appear a few days later, stablise about 15 days after, and last about 6 months.

The only inconvenience associated to Botox® is if it is poorly administered. Doctor Guillaume Lemierre will take the time to analyse your needs and the treatment zones to ensure he administers the proper dose. As an experienced practitioner, Doctor Lemierre retains some flexibility in the facial muscles to provide you with a natural result.

What does a typical session look like?


First of all, you should know that no pre-operation procedure is required other than avoiding aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medicines several days before the injections.

The injections will be done in Doctor Lemierre’s medical clinic in Bordeaux and will last about 15 minutes. As previously indicated, Doctor Lemierre will precisely dose the amount to inject so that your facial muscles responsible for the wrinkles will loosen. He will also measure the regions where you will receive the Botox® injections. Thanks to his experience and precision, you will have a natural result that will make you look relaxed, calm, and well rested.

The injections are almost painless. Doctor Lemierre uses micro-needles and no form of anaesthesia is needed. However, if you prefer, an anaesthetic cream can be applied to the treatment zones.

During the second session, Doctor Lemierre will check in with you to examine the results and correct any possible asymmetries that remain. A follow-up appointment is done 15 days after the first injection to examine the results and correct any asymmetries.

An immediate and natural result


Botox® injections/botulinum toxin have immediate and natural results when the injections are properly measured and dosed, and the injections are done with precision. The results are visible 3 to 7 days after each session and last about 6 months.

Botox® injections and hyaluronic acid injections are different, but can be combined as they are complimentary to one another. Hyaluronic acid fills in wrinkles. By combining the two treatments, you will be addressing the needs of your face as a whole.

What is the post-procedure process?


After each injection session, redness and bruising may appear on the treatment zones, but the bruising is very rare.

No break from your social or daily life is necessary.

You can resume all your daily activities immediately, however certain conditions should be respected:

  • No intense physical activity for 3 to 4 hours after the session
  • Avoid rubbing or massaging the treatment zones
  • Avoid tilting the head forward for several hours after the session

It is important to schedule a follow-up appointment with Doctor Lemierre. He will then be able to adjust or perfect the results. However, these results are not permanent. They will last 4 to 6 months depending on your muscles.

You should wait 4 months before scheduling a new injection session.

Doctor Lemierre is available to answer all of your questions and guide you towards the best treatment for you. Do not hesitate to contact him. As an expert in cosmetic medicine and surgery, he can answer all your questions and welcomes you to his clinic in Bordeaux or Royan to discuss treatment plans.
