Lee's BOTOX® and Fillers Story

Lee wanted to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on his forehead and between his eyes, which he noticed getting worse.

Lee says:

“The main ones are the lines across my forehead which I know are a lot worse when I frown and because I’m looking at a computer monitor all day, that makes them a lot worse.”

How does it feel after treatment? Lee continues:

“You look in the mirror once it’s kicked in, you really do get a wow moment of ‘this is really great, this has wound back the clock’.

“You go out the next day and you feel really confident.”

Why choose BOTOX® injections?

BOTOX® is a brand name for botulinum toxin, which can be used cosmetically to relax wrinkles and temporarily lessen the appearance of lines on the face.

BOTOX® injections are generally thought to be the best treatment for the forehead area, frown lines and crow’s feet near the eyes. Botulinum Toxin also has a number of medical uses, some of which include, the reduction of migraines, excessive sweating and muscle spasms.

If you are considering an anti-wrinkle treatment you must first have a consultation with a qualified medical professional. Botulinum Toxin is a prescription only drug and can only be administered by someone someone who has been medically trained to perform the treatment safely. The consultation will also give you chance to ask any questions to make sure that you are fully aware of the facts, including any risks and side effects, before going ahead.

How does BOTOX® work?

BOTOX® injections temporarily relax the muscle that causes skin to crease, making wrinkles fade or disappear altogether.

The science bit is that although the BOTOX® leaves your body naturally after around 48 hours, the effect of the treatment is to trim the receptors of the muscles that have been injected.

These receptors, which receive messages from the brain telling the muscle to move gradually grow back over a period of several months. ‘Trimmed’ receptors mean the resulting effect is wrinkles and lines have been temporarily reduced as a result of less movement from the corresponding muscle.

Done well, the effect is a subtle, natural improvement. After 2 to 5 days you’ll start to notice the effect, which is at its best after 2 weeks.

Got a Question?

When BOTOX® is injected into a muscle it activates a process called selective muscle denervation. This blocks the chemical signal telling the muscle to contract, stilling the fine dynamic facial movements which cause lines and wrinkles.

BOTOX® is most effective where lines are formed from muscle contractions alone. It stops the underlying muscle movement, so that the skin doesn't crease.

BOTOX® therefore works very well in the upper face where wrinkles are deepened by smiling and frowning - e.g. frown and laughter lines.

Initial results are seen within 2-5 days and continue to develop for up to 2 weeks.

Over 3-5 months, the muscle gradually grows new receptors and is able to contract again. This is the time when BOTOX® has essentially 'worn off' and treatment can be repeated.

Yes, you will meet one of our aesthetic medical professionals. If you wish to go ahead, you can normally have the BOTOX® treatment at the same appointment, but there is no pressure to do so.

We allow a 45-minute appointment for new patients to allow for a full discussion with our aesthetic medical professional, including vital medical history to check that you are suitable for treatment.

BOTOX® is charged per muscle group – i.e. each individual area requiring treatment. If you need an immediate top-up for the same injection, it is free of charge. Please see our prices tab above.

Yes, when a qualified practitioner administers it. Be aware that BOTOX® is a prescription only medicine and it is important to choose a suitably qualified and experienced professional for safe treatment.

Very little. We recommend:

- Gentle movement of the treated area with mild facial exercises after treatment to enhance results
- For the first 2 hours, do not to rub the affected areas
- For the first 24 hours, don’t do any vigorous exercise, drink alcohol or have prolonged sun/heat exposure

Some, but most are related to the actual act of injecting the skin, not the product itself. These include: minor redness or swelling around the injection site (which vanishes within 1-2hrs), minor bruising on occasions, headaches and a very small risk of infection around the entry point. In very rare cases, clients can experience a temporary droop of the eyelid.

There are certain contraindications, including neurological diseases such as Myasthenia Gravis and Parkinson’s Disease, taking certain antibiotics (namely Erythromycin) and blood-thinning medications including Warfarin or Heparin.

Your consultation will include taking relevant medical information and any issues will be discussed.

Many of our patients don't tell anyone they've had treatment. People tend to notice you look 'well' but we don't do the frozen face treatment at SkinViva, so it is never over the top.

No this is not the case. In fact, BOTOX® leaves your body through normal waste processes within a few days. It is the effect of the BOTOX® on your muscles which last for 3-4 months.

We're finding increasingly a very varied mix of men who are having BOTOX® and dermal filler treatments in order to reduce wrinkles and restore volume. We have male patients from various sectors including construction, professional, retail... You name it. There doesn't seem to be a physical type of man who has cosmetic procedures. Instead it's all about the importance to each individual guy of what it is they care about and want to achieve.
