What is Botox®?
Botox® is a brand using Botulinum type A in small amounts to relax facial muscles temporarily. It has been in widespread use in both medical and cosmetic procedures for years. Botox® treats various conditions like migraines, lazy eyes, muscle spasms, and bladder issues. It is considered a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgical cosmetic procedures.
A rest for the muscles, and skin
How the injections work is by essentially ‘switching off’ the nerve endings in muscles, causing them to relax. The muscle in question is no longer able to contract – this then softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles with the skin covering these muscles able to regenerate.
The patient’s skin will be able to maintain a softened appearance whilst the Botox continues to work. Anti-wrinkle treatments can also be used in the armpits to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Wrinkles, fine lines, frown lines and forehead lines are a completely normal part of the ageing process – but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with them. Here at the clinic, our expert practitioners are able to come up with a tailored anti-wrinkle plan for you, ensuring maximum results and longevity of the anti-wrinkle treatment is achieved.
If it is your first time, please mention this during the initial consultation and we will be happy to discuss any question you may have, about any subject.

Alternative and complementary treatments
Treatments will be discussed with you in more detail during your initial consultation, so that we can come up with what suits you best. As well as anti-wrinkle treatments, we offer filler treatments. Hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers are simply used as ‘volumizers’, plumping and lifting cheeks, jawlines, filling out thin lips or reshaping uneven lips.
The dermal fillers injection works to plump up the tissue underneath the skin, smoothing wrinkles. As a result the complexion becomes firmer, smoother, and younger looking! Enhancing wrinkles with Hyaluronic Acid, a natural ingredient in our bodies to deliver a natural look and feel to the problem areas.

During treatment, the solution will be injected directly into the muscles of the treatment area using a fine needle. As the needle is so small, most patients don’t experience any pain; the most you’re likely to feel is a little sharp discomfort as the substance is injected.
A series of these injections will be administered, with a typical after-consultation session expected to last no longer than 15-20 minutes.
It is completely normal if you don’t instantly notice results after your first session. Visible results are typically seen after around 7-9 days of treatment, but the full effect could take up to 21 days to develop.
The anti-ageing results can last anywhere between 2-5 months, meaning the results of this treatment aren’t permanent. To maintain a youthful, smooth complexion, you’ll likely need a series of top-up injections between 2-4 times per year.
The risks associated with botulinum toxin injections are very small when performed by a fully experienced practitioner in a clinical environment. Side effects sometimes happen, although they are usually mild and short-lived—side effects you may experience include bruising, swelling, or redness at the site of the injection. Rarer side effects include headache, stomach upset, eye irritation, or a temporarily drooping eyelid.
