It’s all about the consultation
Botulinum toxin injections are used to help relax facial muscles and make lines and wrinkles less obvious. It acts by blocking chemicals which transmits electrical impulses that cause muscle contractions and can reduce the formation of wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin is a prescription-only medicine which will be administered by local GP, Dr Sophie Bennett after a consultation where your requirements and needs are thoroughly investigated.
During the procedure, your skin is cleaned and small amounts of botulinum toxin are injected into the area to be treated. Several injections are usually needed at different sites.
The injections usually take effect around three to five days after treatment and it can take up to 2 weeks for the full effect to be realised which is why we offer a follow up appointment at 2 weeks to check you are happy with the results. The effects generally last for about 3 to 4 months after which “top-up’s” are usually required.
Dr Bennett can provide this non surgical treatment option for the management of crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines.
Details of prices can be found in the treatment fees section of the website and start from £160.

Who can have Botox?
In general Botox is suitable for most people, but please note that wrinkle reduction treatment is not suitable if you are pregnant or breastfeeding and cannot be used in those under age 18. Your individual circumstances will be discussed at your consultation.
What are the risks of Botox?
The use of Botox for wrinkle reduction is supported by years of safety data. There can be slight bruising at the injection site and in rare cases Botox make migrate into muscles around the eye which can temporarily (lasting a few weeks) cause a slight drooping of the eyelid.
