At our clinic on Harley Street London, we offer consultations and treatments to soften face lines and wrinkles.
While the specific treatment recommended will vary from person to person, an effective option for many people will be injections containing Botulinum Toxin Type A.
Sometimes these injections are called Botox, or even Baby Botox for short, although Botox is also the brand name of a specific Botulinum Toxin type A product. In our clinic we use Botox and other brands for face lines and face wrinkles.
The effectiveness of Botox for face means that in recent years there has been an explosion in the number of Botox clinics in London.
Patient safety is a top priority for us and we strongly believe that a Botox injection should not be carried out by anyone without the appropriate medical qualifications, training and experience.
As such only experienced Dermatologists and Registered Nurses perform Botox treatments at our clinic.
Botox is muscle relaxant and prescription only medicine. It is used for a range of different therapeutic purposes in addition to treating lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox injection are injected intra muscular, using a very fine needle, similar in size to what is used in acupuncture.
Baby Botox is a reference to an injection technique, rather than a different product. This technique uses small amounts of muscle relaxant that are strategically placed to soften wrinkles, but importantly it also ensures that you do not lose any of your facial expression or muscle movement. This may be suitable for younger adults who have only mild lines or wrinkles. It also prevents the frozen look that many patients wish to avoid.
The injections work to block the synapse, or junction between the nerve and muscle. In a matter of days the Botox injections will have the effect of reducing the muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles. Results will always vary from person to person and therefore no guarantee as to efficacy can be given.
The manufacturers guidelines for Botox state that you will usually see an improvement within the first week after injection. However at our clinic we advise patients to wait between 1 to 2 weeks for best Botox results.
Botox results will always differ from person to person and sometimes in the same person over time. For most people the effects of Botox injected into the face will last around 4 months.
As is the case with all injectable treatments, we will provide you with comprehensive information with respect to aftercare, as this is important to ensure you get the best Botox results.
The use of Botulinum Toxin Type A to improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (‘eleven lines’ between the eyebrows) was first approved in the United States in 2002.
Nearly 20 years later, Botox injections are the number one non-surgical aesthetic treatment worldwide. The latest figures from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery indicate that in 2018 in the U.S. alone, there were over 1.8 million treatments using Botulinum Toxin Type A.
In the U.K. Botox is approved to temporarily improve the appearance of the following areas of the face:
However like all medicines Botox does have known side effects, some of which are common and some less-common. The likely side effects of Botox will be explained to you as part of our informed consent procedure before treatment commences, but you can also read about some of them here.

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.
