Other Botox Treatments

Botox® is Allergan’s trademark for Botulinum, though most people call it Botox like they call a vacuum cleaner a Hoover! Botox is recognised by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) for Migraines but many people will know it better for its other uses:-

  • Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) – Too much sweating from the armpits can be acutely embarrassing and the treatment will last 4-6 months or more
  • Jawline Reduction – We can reduce square jaws to a more subtle shape by reducing the jawline muscle mass, and in some people there is also a smoothing of the shape of the bone. The effects can be amazing.
  • Removing Lines & Wrinkles – The muscle relaxing effect of Botox is particularly effective for around the eyes and forehead, as well as the frown lines between the eyebrows

BOTULINUM relaxes the muscles that cause the dynamic wrinkles. It is used mostly around the eyes and forehead to help wipe away the worry and frown lines , and the crow’s feet lines which form when our facial muscle contract. These wrinkles can make us appear to be frowning, even when we are not, because these muscles are still partially active even when relaxed. After treatment people will say “you are looking so young”.

The art of treating you with Botulinum is to give just the right amount. Too little and you won’t see much, too much and your face will look frozen. This is why you should be treated by professionals who have received specialist postgraduate training. We believe that subtlety is the key – to avoid too much so that your face looks frozen. We will see you after 2 weeks for a follow-up, and top-up the originally treated areas if indicated, usually without charge. Our aim is that you should be happy with the effect.

Botulinum begins to take effect after 24 hours but takes 5-10 days to be fully effective. During this time your face will gradually look younger and fresher. The effects last about 3-6 months, after which you can have further top-ups. We have payment plans to manage the costs of the top-ups
