Botulinum Toxin (widely known as BOTOX) is carefully injected into the superficial layers of the skin allowing us to target specific muscles which temporarily restricts their movement. This allows the overlying skin to repair the ageing process and signs of wrinkles, resulting in a smooth – young wrinkle free appearance.
BT acts by blocking Acetylcholine, this is a chemical which causes muscle contractions, so the muscles are then temporarily relaxed, however movement does come back after time, so this is not a permanent procedure (lasts 3-6 months).
Botulinum Toxin can also used to treat certain medical conditions, including Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and tension migraines

About Botulinum Toxin
Botox is a brand of toxin not the name of the treatment however it is widely known as ‘Botox’ amongst the public. The official term is Botulinum Toxin Injections, also know as muscle relaxing. In short, they are all the same.
You can book this treatment at our Westminster clinic with Nurse Kirsha. Kirsha will be running a weekly clinic every Tuesday from 10am-6pm.
BT acts by blocking Acetylcholine, this is a chemical which causes muscle contractions, so the muscles are then temporarily relaxed restricting movement.
Unfortunately not, you must leave 14 days between the two treatments. We advise having BT before booking your fillers. For more information please contact us by phone 0203 63 35 626
Botulinum toxin injections can last for several months (3 – 6 months). Top ups will be required after this time to maintain desired effects.
BT is very safe and the side effects are very rare, as it only effects your muscles and sweat glands. We are happy to see clients for reviews for free if they have any issues with the toxin. Clients are seen by a doctor and a nurse prior to injecting to ensure ultimate safety.
The product can take up to two weeks post treatment to take full effect.
The treatment is very quick and relatively painless. Local anaesthetic isn’t usually needed. Your skin is cleaned and small amounts of botulinum toxin are injected into the muscles of the face to be treated.
You’ll need to first meet with the doctor & nurse who will prescribe the Toxin and this will always be a face-to-face consultation. They’ll want to fully understand your medical history and reasons for wanting the treatment before they go ahead. Then the Toxin will be administered to the client within our clinic.
The treatment usually takes around 15 minutes to be carried out safely.
