About Anti-wrinkle Injections

Botox is the most common term for anti-wrinkle injections. Botox helps to temporarily relax the muscles and excessive movements to smooth out the skin. This can be used as a preventative measure against permanent creases, specially with Millenials.

A full facial assessment will be conducted to watch your expressions throughout the consultation so that the placement of your Botox is correct for your face. Botox is an art, which is why we take our time and carry out your treatment with years of medical knowledge and experience.

Please note the starting price of £220 is the price for Millennials who are only having the Glabella area treated (between the brows). The price for older women and men is £355 and £425 respectively.

The Problem

The Problem

Your skin is like a piece of paper, the more you crease it, the more permanent the creases become. Strong frown muscles cause the typical ‘number 11’s’ between the brows, strong squint muscles cause crow’s feet and strong forehead muscles cause the horizontal wrinkles on the forehead. 

When you are young, your skin springs back and there are no visible wrinkles, but as you age and the skin loses collagen and elasticity, wrinkles are present even at rest. You lose 1-2% of your collagen every year which is why Botox is now also used as a preventative treatment. These wrinkles contribute to making your face look older than it may be and give others the impression that you are cross, anxious or worried. 

How It Works

Botox was first introduced by Dr Jean Carruthers and her husband, both ophthalmic surgeons. They injected it near the eyes to stop facial tics and they noticed that it reduced the wrinkles in the skin, giving a more youthful appearance. It is now used in many areas of the face and also for many medical conditions such as excess sweating, migraines and overactive bladders.

Botox attaches to the nerve endings, thus stopping the message to ‘contract’. After a full assessment, one of our Qualified Aesthetic Doctors will inject into the required muscles using tiny needles, making it almost painless. They will explain everything to you; how your facial muscles are working, any rare side effects, when you will see the results, aftercare and your follow up.

Dr Ros and Dr Maddie will carry out a full facial assessment. You will be required to fill out a medical form to rule out any conditions that might contraindicate a treatment. The vast majority of healthy people, who are not pregnant or breastfeeding are suitable.

There is usually no downtime.  You can even come for a treatment in your lunch hour.

These are very strict rules, but in reality the Botox is attached to the nerve endings within 15 minutes of your treatment and does not move to other areas of the face.

For at least 4 hours after treatment

  • Keep in an upright position
  • Do not bend excessively

For at least 12 hours after treatment

  • Avoid wearing make-up unless it is mineral make-up

For at least 2 days after treatment

  • Do not vigorously massage the treated area.
  • After washing, pat skin dry.
  • Avoid vigorous exercise and wearing swimming goggles.

For at least 2 days after treatment

Botox can be injected in areas on the face and body.

  • Botox for the face: Forehead / Eye area / Mouth / Lips / Nasal Area / Neck
  • Botox for the body: For temporary relief of excessive  sweating Armpit  
  • For permanent sweat reduction see miraDry 

Dr Ros and Dr Maddie are perfectionists and want you to get the best, natural looking results. At your free follow up they will watch your facial expressions to see if you need any adjustments. We all have a ‘mirror face’ which is very different to our ‘everyday, talking face’ so you may not be aware that a fine adjustment is needed. Dr Ros and Dr Madde will ‘teach you what to look out for’ so that, when you are confident, you will know when you need to book your free follow up appointment at 2-3 weeks.

Men’s muscles are so much stronger than women’s hence they often need almost twice as much Botox to be injected.

Your forehead muscle is the only muscle lifting up your eyebrows. As you age, the skin gets more ‘stretchy’ due to loss of collagen and the muscle becomes less efficient. It is important to take this into account. Dr Ros and Dr Maddie analyse your face every single time to make sure they inject the correct amount of Botox in the correct positions. Botox is an art and it is important to have the treatment done by a medical practitioner who has a lot of experience and doing treatments on a regular basis.

Botox is an art and it takes years of experience to do it really well, in an age appropriate way . Everyone’s face is different in terms of where the muscles are, how the individual uses their muscles, what expressions they make, if they have heavy lids, if the have lax skin due to loss of collagen that occurs with age. These must all be taken into consideration. If not you could end up with drooped brows, heavy lids, spock brows or unnatural movement. Yes, it is so important to listen to what you are concerned about, but sometimes what you may ask for is not right. Dr Ros and Dr Maddie assess every patient individually and follow up on the results at a free consultation 2-3 weeks later. If any extra Botox is needed this included in your treatment. They will explain why you should have adjustment so that you will understand and know for subsequent treatments.

Your sweat glands have little muscles that contract to squeeze out the sweat and odour when you get hot or anxious. When Botox is injected into the skin in the underarm, it can stop the muscle contracting and reduce, if not stop, sweating. The results last about 4 months and cost £425. An alternative is MiraDry, which can cause permanent sweat reduction in the underarm. Book a consultation with our specialist team to discuss this treatment.
