Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the UK to smooth out frown lines and other wrinkles, used for over 30 years without long term side effects. Botox is a protein that blocks nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract, relaxing them – reducing wrinkles. Taking only minutes, it’s given by injection with a very fine needle directly into the muscle you wish to affect – minimising pain and maximising precision. The results usually last 3 – 4 months.
In essence, Botox will improve your appearance without all the risks.

We offer a free consultation where we take your medical history and assess your face for Botox suitability. Generally you will be suitable for Botox as long as you’re not pregnant or breast feeding and you don’t take certain antibiotics (called aminoglycosides) or have certain neuromuscular disorders. The skin at the proposed treatment area must also be free of infection.
We also offer dermal fillers – an injectable form of hyaluronic acid – a chemical occurring naturally in the body that confers structure and volume to your skin. This combines synergistically with Botox and also offers an option to those who are not suitable for Botox.
The price depends on how many areas you need done:
To maintain the results, you’ll need Botox injections every 3 – 4 months.
