Wrinkle reduction injections are the most popular non-invasive treatment in the UK and worldwide. The treatment involves injecting small amounts of Botulinum toxin into the problem areas. It relaxes the muscles, helping to reduce the appearance of existing lines and to prevent deeper lines from forming.
Is this the right treatment for me?
Botox® treatments are suitable for almost everyone. Importantly, cosmetic treatments are a personal choice. Botox® can help to enhance your ‘look’ and can be built up safely to achieve your desired appearance.
Which areas can be treated?
- Eyes (“crow’s feet”).
- Forehead lines.
- Frown lines between eyes.
- Smokers’ lines around mouth.
- Excessive sweating (armpits, hands and feet).
- Treatment for migraines and tension headaches.
All treatments include a review after 3 weeks with no further charge if any additional treatment is required.
What does it feel like during treatment?
Botox® treatments feel like a pin prick in the treatment area and are moderately pain-free. The treatment takes about 15-20 minutes.
How long does it last for?
Botox® is a temporary procedure. Once the treatment has been administered by our doctor, you will start to notice the effects within 4-6 days. After approximately three weeks, the full effect will be visible. The effect of the treatment will last for 3-6 months, but long-term effects can be achieved with continued Botox® treatments.
What happens after treatment?
You can carry on with your day as normal immediately after leaving the clinic. Avoid strenuous exercise for the rest of the day.
