Wrinkle Reducing Treatment

Cosmetic Injectables

Botulinum type A (commonly known as botox) has been used cosmetically for more than 10 years and it has also been used to treat certain medical conditions in the UK for over 20 years.

Botulinum type A is a purified protein which is injected into specific muscles in the face to temporarily relax them, softening facial expressions and helping to reverse the signs of ageing.  Treatment is usually effective within 3 to 4 days, although it may take up to 3 weeks for the full effects to be seen.  The speed of action will depend on the strength of your facial muscles and your individual response to the injection.

Common treatment areas are vertical lines between the eyebrows (referred to as the Glabellar Complex), horizontal forehead lines and crow's feet.

Lower facial areas, for instance, downturn mouth corners and a "dimpled" chin can also be successfully treated using advanced techniques.

Description / Details

Before your treatment any make-up will be removed and the skin disinfected.  Your practitioner will then study your facial muscles to see how they work, as individuals can differ.   The treatment session will last about an hour, this will include time for a full medical consultation to be taken.  The actual treatment time will only take about 10 minutes and you can return to your usual daily activities immediately afterwards.  We will advise you following your treatment about how to look after your skin and provide you with written aftercare information, including any follow-up appointment required.

Further Notes

This is a prescription only medicine, and will only be administered by a medically qualified professional.  We do not endorse non medical professions eg beauty therapists, chiropodists, dental hygienists, dental nurses etc administering our treatments.  Beauty Salons, Sunbed shops, Hair Salons and Botox Parties are not considered appropriate clinical environments.
