Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Dr Haus offers consultations and a range of treatment options for patients with facial lines and wrinkles at his clinic on Harley Street in Central London.

One option that in Dr Haus’ experience is very effective, is anti-wrinkle injections containing Botulinum Toxin.  Dr Haus uses these injections to improve the appearance of Rhytides (the medical term for wrinkles) on the forehead, on lines around the eyes, and also on frown lines.

How Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work?

Frequently referred to as simply ‘Botox’ (which is actually the name of one of the brands of medicines containing Botulinum Toxin) these muscle relaxants are injected intra muscular using a fine needle, similar in size to what is used in acupuncture.

The injections work to block the synapse, or junction between the nerve and muscle and in a matter of days it will have the effect of reducing the muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles.

It is important to appreciate that Botulinum Toxin (including Botox) is a powerful drug and a prescription only medicine in the United Kingdom.

This means that it can only be prescribed for treatment, following a consultation with someone who is legally authorised to do so, and only after they consider that it is an appropriate treatment for that individual patient.

Where Can Anti-Wrinkle Injections Be Used?

The use of Botulinum Toxin to improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (the region between the eyebrows) was first approved in 2002 by the United States Food and Drug Administration.  In the years that followed, the ‘frozen upper face’ became synonymous with people who had been injected with Botulinum Toxin.

However since then the effect of this treatment on the facial nerves and muscles has been extensively studied and become much better understood.

Botulinum Toxin injections are now used to relax negative muscle activity and harmonise overall facial expression.   Facial lines and wrinkles that may make a person look tired or even angry, can now be reduced and softened with anti-wrinkle injections.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (‘ASAPS’) estimates that there were almost 4.6 million treatments involving Botulinum Toxin carried out in the United States in 2016.

Is A Consultation Necessary Before Treatment?

Yes.  Prior to the treatment of any patient at our clinic with anti-wrinkle injections containing Botulinum Toxin, Dr Haus will carry out a consultation to ensure that it is an appropriate prescriptive for both their condition as well as their medical history.

Dr Haus has many years of experience in using Botulinum Toxin to treat wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the corners of the eyes.

Responses to anti-wrinkle treatments will vary from person to person and may even vary in the same person over time. It is for this reason that results are not guaranteed.

Botox is so ubiquitous it’s often applied ‘by numbers’, with set quantities administered to certain points on the face, all dictated by generic manufacturer’s instructions. But Dr Haus is a Da Vinci in a sea of painter-decorators. Careful judgement of exact amount and position is where his aesthetic comes into its own. Experience and a good eye are worth their weight in gold, and beautiful people in the public eye can’t afford to look anything less than perfect. Or—worse—changed or ‘worked upon’. Dr Haus achieves both the former and neither of the latter effortlessly.
