It is safe, quick and straightforward, and can be combined with other treatments such as fillers to give you the complete ideal facial makeover.

After a few painless injections, you can carry on your normal day and wait for lines to soften over the next 3-7 days.Full effects may take a further week. This relaxed, fresher look will stay with you for 3-6 months.

Q. What are Botulinum toxin (Botox®) injections used for?
A. It is used for treating frown lines, forehead furrows, eye lines (crow’s feet), lip (smoker) lines, down-turned mouths and dimpled chins. It is also used for preventing excessive perspiration in underarms.

A. Yes, it has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use and has been used for over 30 years without any known long-term problems.

Q. Who is suitable for Botulinum toxin?
A. It is suitable for most people apart from those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Q. Are Botox ® injections painful?
A. No, we have had it done ourselves and you feel next to nothing. Our secret is that we use a fresh syringe for EACH injection to make you as comfortable as possible.
Q. How will I look after the treatment?
A. There is a slight redness immediately after, which settles within a few hours. Application of ice helps and it is easily covered with makeup.
Q. What can and can’t I do after the treatment?
A. Within 4 hours of the treatment, people are advised not to do vigorous exercise, drink excessive alcohol or lie down flat. Otherwise, life can carry on as normal.
Q. When will I notice a difference?
A. It starts to work in about 3-7days. The greatest effect is seen after about 1-2 weeks.
Q. How long will it last? 3-6 months depending on each individual’s own response.
A. Repeat treatments have been shown to last longer.
Q. Does it leave my face numb?
A. No. There is no sensation change in your skin.
Q. What are the side-effects?
A. It is a very safe treatment. However, side-effects can occur but are rare. They can include slight bruising at the injection site, slight drooping of the eyelid which would only last for a week or so, and headaches.
Q. Will it ‘freeze my face’ and leave me expressionless?
A. No, definitely not. Our training enables us to minimize any possible loss of facial expression by injecting specific muscles responsible for the wrinkles.
