The use of Botulinum Toxin® has become the world’s most popular and innovative non-surgical treatment to combat the signs of ageing. It relaxes facial muscles that can cause deep set wrinkles and is an effective and economic treatment to smooth and soften expression lines.

Wrinkle reduction treatments take only a few minutes without any anaesthesia required. Botulinum Toxin® is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect. Results usually last between 4-6 months, giving the face a fresher and youthful complexion.

As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.

311Is it Safe?

Botulinum Toxin® is a protein derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum, having undergone a proven safe and highly effective purification process. The biggest misconception is that it is a poison. It is in fact organic and completely safe. Since the early 1970s it has been used in treating conditions in many fields of medicine including neurology and ophthalmology and it has been used in aesthetic medicine for over 20 years.

In over 30 years of use in medicine, there have never been any reported serious allergic reactions and with such longevity we can say with certainty that there are no long term side effects. The most important thing to remember is that this treatment is non-permanent and very safe. The Botulinum Toxin® is metabolised at the injection site and it does not spread to any other parts of the body. If the patient ever decides to stop having the treatment, their appearance will revert to their original state.

Does it look natural?

Botox4The overwhelming feedback from our patients is that they are thrilled with their new natural and younger look, and most tell us that nobody (often including their partners!) even realised they had any kind of cosmetic treatment, with the usual comments being that they look very healthy and fresh! We pride ourselves in taking a measured and personalised approach to each patient receiving Botulinum Toxin® therapy, always striving to avoid the dreaded frozen and drooping effects and always giving our patients the desired naturally youthful look.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are not very common with Botulinum Toxin treatments, and even if they occur there are no long term side effects whatsoever. For about one hour after the treatment, the patient may have small red bumps at the site of the injections, but these fade within an hour, really making this a “lunchtime” treatment. Headaches, slight bruising, tightness and heaviness are rare side-effects but all of these usually resolve within a matter of days.

We can provide this treatment upon a successful consultation with our Dentist.
