BOTOX | London | Northampton | Milton Keynes

  • The skin of our face is attached to the thin facial muscles which we use every time we smile, frown or express emotions. Over a period of years, this repeated facial movement leads to development of prominent lines – wrinkles on our forehead, around our eyes and mouth. Neurotoxin injections, BOTOX/DYSPORT, act at the site of injection to paralyse the muscles, hence relaxing the overlying skin and smoothening out the wrinkles. Over a period of months, the nerves supplying the muscles grow back and the effect of these injections wear off – hence the need for repeated injections.  The sooner you start, the fewer wrinkles you will have as you age and the more regularly you have these injections, the less frequently you will need them in the long run.

    Besides wrinkles, the other conditions where BOTOX injection can help are

    1. For excessive sweating, usually under the arms.
    2. For Bulky cheek due to overactive Masseter – paralysing this can help in giving a “slimmer” face
    3. Some headaches and facial pain, particularly if due to tight muscle are helped by BOTOX injection. However, this is not a well-studied area and there is no high-quality research. In my experience the severity and the frequency are reduced in selected patients.
  • I inject BOTOX with very fine small needles which are virtually pain free. The main areas of injections for cosmetic purpose are

    1. Frown Lines between your eyebrows
    2. Forehead wrinkles
    3. Crow’s feet around your eyes
    4. Lip wrinkles

    BOTOX injection takes effect by third day, maximizes by three weeks and starts to wear off after three months. Immediately following the injection, you will get a wheal lasting around half an hour, infrequently you may have bruise that takes a few days to clear off.
