Botox

What is Botox and how does it work?

Our facial expressions change because the muscles in the face contract or relax. When botox is injected into a specific muscle it blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles in the face which in turn relaxed the facial expressions that cause the wrinkles to form. This is not permanent but it will last for around 3 – 4 months.

Botox allows the untreated areas of your face to move as normal and you will still be able to laugh, smile and frown, but with less wrinkling of the skin in the areas treated.

We use the UK model of pricing, meaning that you pay per area treated rather than number of units used.  Each treatment and dose used is unique to you and depends on the degree of muscle movement we see at the initial consultation. All botox treatments include a complementary review after 2 weeks so that we can assess the results and adjust the treatment dose if required at no extra cost.

Treatment areas include:

  • Frown Lines
  • Forehead Lines
  • Crows Feet around the eyes
  • Underneath the Lower Eyelid
  • Under arm for excessive sweating
  • Upper lip (vertical lip lines)
  • Chin dimpling
  • Tip of nose to improve droopy tip
  • Droopy Mouth Corners
  • Platysmal Bands (neck tightening)
  • Gummy Smile

An Anti Wrinkle treatment is simple, quick and safe & usually takes no longer than 10 – 15 minutes. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure.
You will have a detailed discussion with the aesthetic DR or nurse practitioner, where you will be able to discuss your expectations of the cosmetic effect from this treatment. A medical history will be taken & Photographs may also be taken as “before and after” images to show you how successful your Anti Wrinkle treatment has been.
Using a small needle (similar to ones diabetics use) tiny amount of botulinum toxin will be injected into several points in the agreed area.
It is important to note that if you have deep lines that are visible at rest, botox will soften these & improve the appearance but may not totally remove them.
  • Slight discomfort when the treatment is injected
  • Headache after treatment,
  • Very rarely, double vision. 
  • Small amount of temporary bleeding or mild swelling at the injection site.
  • Weakness of the muscle holding up the eyelid/ eyebrow causing a “partial ptosis” or drooping of the upper eyelid (less than 1%).  Some practitioners use an eye drop called apraclonidine to help to speed up the recovery if this effect occurs.
  • The eyebrow position may alter so that the edges of the eyebrows become elevated. This is easily corrected with a small amount of Anti Wrinkle injected above the raised area of the eyebrow to help change its position.

  • If you have diseases that affect muscle activity (E.g.  Myasthenia Gravis)
  • You have a history of Bell’s palsy this may affect the dosage that is used.
  • If you have any bleeding disorders or are taking drugs that affect bleeding time (Aspirin, Warfarin, Clopidogrel)
  • If you are taking certain antibiotics such as Gentamycin, your practitioner may advise against treatment.
