“I don’t want a new face…I want my old face back!”
A quote I love, given to me by Chris, a patient of mine.
A typical patient reaching 50 years old and in my eyes ‘wanted something’ but didn’t know what, and yes it made her feel better!
A combination of Botox around the eyes, forehead and top lip www.traceybell.co.uk
Chemical Peels – three mild peels – combining an acid + microderm + renew + rejuvenate the skin.
Lip Enhancement – The lips were redefined and volumised to give a natural uplifting effect. The results can last six months and again feel and look natural.
Hair – Now I don’t cut hair – but with a new face – how else can I finish, but with a new hair cut and colour. Women and men often feel it’s just safe to leave well alone, but as we age so many other aspects change. Colour of skin, tone of hair, facial features to name a few. So, everyone, get advice because sometimes you just need to chop.
Chris was delighted – Tracey you made me look fantastic, but I feel even better. That sums it up really – create physical change – Build Emotive Beauty!
So much has been written about Botox – a purified protein, a toxin (but don’t worry – it’s dosage in cosmetics is so small) and a revolution in cosmetic, non surgical procedures.
The development advances and practice have allowed Botox to be utilized in all areas.
So where can I have Botox cosmetically?
Around the lips – NOT in the lips
Neck (lines on the neck)
Jaw Line – to enhance and create definition
Arm Pits – excellent for decrease in perspiration or Hyperdrosis – lasts up to 9
months and is a complete life changing event.
What side effects can I get ?
Quite honestly, minimal – as long as each face is diagnosed, the practitioner experienced and the patient knows what they want:
So what can happen?
Bruising – always possible and always avoidable
Drooping – yes, eyebrows can drop if muscles are not assessed – but again minimal
Uneven eye brows – sometimes this happens and is easily corrected – as with all Botox treatments
I don’t want to look plastic with Botox
A comment that I hear every hour, rest assured Botox can produce any result that you want. It’s dependant on your wishes, I like movement, I can move my eyebrows, smile and my forehead…………..
Why? Cos I want to! I’m 40 years old, happy and I love Botox. And, for those that like no movement – Yes! we can do that too!!!
How long will it last and is it painful?
Well pain is perception, but I assume you will hardly feel a thing.
How long does it last? Well three months plus and that’s it …movement begins to return about six weeks after injections, but very gradually.
I always recommend that you have it injected every three months as the whole aim is to let the muscles relax – and then back.
Remember, just like going to a gym, start to exercise and they’ll build up bulk – a little Botox and they produce a nice rejuvenation
Yes, Botox is used with Restylane facial fillers, lip fillers and volumisers.
Synergistic results are fantastic, remember good facial rejuvenation is all about diagnosis.
And how is it done………..
The simplest thing I could do here is video it and show you exactly how I do it…………….
It’s open, honest and a real patient journey. Enjoy it and please feel free to ask me any questions.

So why is the subject of Botox so tantalizing?
In my opinion the media, the results and yes….it’s a wanted treatment.
Why? It makes us feel better, look better and brings confidence – EMOTIVE BEAUTY!
