BOTOX administered by a medical expert in Harley Street

BOTOX derived from botulinum toxin type A, is an effective non surgical treatment for facial lines and wrinkles and an established brand name. The Botox treatment results in a youthful appearance by reducing the muscle contractions. From the treatment of “crow’s feet” at the edge of the eyes to forehead lines, frown lines and to  glabellar lines (wrinkles between the brows), Botulinum toxin injections can smooth a wide range of fine facial lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions with a simple 10-minute treatment. This is an effective and safe way to reduce and soften wrinkles and lines for both men and women most commonly around the eyes, nose and lips and across the forehead area.

Top 12 areas on face to treat with Botox!

BOTOX TREATMENT AREAS
BOTOX TREATMENT AREAS

1. Botox for Forehead Lines

Forehead Botox London

Botox treatment is proven and effective way of getting rid of deep forehead lines or frontalis lines, plumping and firming for a smoother and tighter looking facial appearance.

2. Botox for Crow’s Feet – Lines on the upper two thirds of the lateral eye.

Botox injections are excellent at relaxing those lines of crow’s feet.

3. Botox for Frown Lines / Glabellar Lines – Vertical lines between the eyebrows that resemble the number 11.

Frown lines aka glabella frown lines are the vertical lines which appear in your forehead when you’re expressing a negative emotion like, anger, concern or worry.

4. Botox for Bunny Lines – Lines across the bridge of the nose.

Do you get small lines at the side of your nose when you laugh, eat or express emotion? These lines, commonly known as ‘Bunny Lines’.

5. Botox for Chin Dents (PEBBLE/DIMPLED CHIN/MENTALIS) 

Botox injections can treat the chin crease/mental crease.

6. Botox for Masseter (Jaw) Muscles

Botox is the best treatment for masseter muscles. Masseteric hypertrophy is caused by Bruxism, which is the involuntary or habitual grinding of the teeth, typically during the night. This will cause the masseters to enlarge and if left untreated will cause TMJ dysfunction. Botox treats this condition.

7. Botox Brow Lift – Creates a lifting effect of the brow.

As we age, our brows start to droop and we look more tired. The most superior non-invasive treatment to lift the brows is muscle relaxing, Botox injections. One of the most effective ways to restore a youthful vibrancy to the face and reverse the signs of ageing is by having BOTOX Injections to the eyebrows.

8. Botox for Gummy Smile – Smile with over exposure of the upper teeth and gums.

Gummy smile is a very common problem where on smiling, a large area of gum can be seen above the upper teeth. Sometimes gummy smiles are genetic, and will run in a family. A small dose of Botox injected around the nose sorts this out. If you are frightened to smile as you are bothered about the heightened appearance of your gums then your life can be really affected.

 

9. Botox for Neck (Platysma Bands) – Ageing muscle neck lines/bands.

‘Botox may smooth and firm the skin around the Jaw & Neck area”.

Botox injections into the platysmal band muscles can lengthen the bands, improving the appearance of the neck and jawline. When it comes to ageing, the neck is often seen as one of the most obvious areas that shows those tell-tale signs as well as being known to be one of the most difficult areas to correct. Deep lines & sagging skin collect around the neck, with other people being able to see the results of ageing more than on the face as it cannot be covered with make-up. Becoming more noticeable as we express our emotions, wrinkled necklines can be a real cause of distress to many.

BOTOX LONDON Injections, help to smooth and firm the skin around the neck area, meaning that rings and horizontal lines are quickly and noticeably diminished. The neck looks younger, meaning that nobody will be able to distinguish your age, and boosting your beauty confidence.

Rupesh employs a new technique which involves placing multiple injections of BOTOX horizontally along the lower jawline and vertically down the side of the neck along the platysmal band muscles. These bands are what pull down on the lower side of the face and aggravate the jowls. The effect is to improve the definition of the jawline, relax the jowls, and provide an ‘upward lifting effect’ in the neck and jaw area. Like the face, treatments last on average 3-4 months.

10. Botox for Hyperhidrosis – Excessive sweating in areas such as forehead, the palms of the hands and underarms area.

Botox London can be administered to people who sweat excessively from their armpits. It may also be used “off-label” to reduce sweating in other areas which cause Excessive Sweating, such as the hands, feet, and face.

11. Botox for Smokers Lines

“Botox Injections diminish Smoker’s Lines”.

The vertical lines above your mouth can be relaxed using Botox injections. Fine lines on the upper lip, also known as ‘Smoker’s Lines’, are not just a tell-tale sign of smoking. With the mouth being a very busy area of the face as it is where we directly speak and eat, it is little wonder that many of us succumb to tell-tale lines and wrinkles around this area. Increasing over time as we naturally produce less Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid, small lines deepen and become more obvious. This can result in make-up sitting in the creases, so drawing even more attention to the area.

12. Botox for Lip Flip

“Botox Lip Flip enhances your natural look with fuller, poutier lips”. 

The latest craze is to have a Lip Flip. The Botox Lip Flip involves the precise placement of just a few units of botox along the upper lip muscle, near the border, to relax and “flip” the lip to make more of the upper lip body visible. This creates a fuller, plumper, but natural-appearing upper lip.

WHAT TYPE OF SURGERY IS BOTOX?

Botox Treatments in London Lip Clinic
Botox Treatments in London Lip Clinic

Botox is a Botulinum toxin type A used in non-surgical cosmetic treatments. It is classified as  surgical procedures. It is conducted in the clinic by an aesthetic doctor who will ask you to contract your muscle. It is classified  as a non surgical cosmetic treatments and do not require surgery carried out by plastic surgeons.

HOW BOTOX WORKS

BOTOX  ( botulinum toxin type a ) is a prescription only medicine licensed for cosmetic use by medical professionals. It is one of the most popular treatments at our London clinic. Botox acts by blocking acetylcholine, a chemical that is responsible for transmitting electrical impulses that cause facial muscles to contract in your face. This results in muscle paralysis. The resultant paralysis, however, is temporary, as the new growth of nerves will re-innervate the muscles. Hence Botox treatment is not permanent. For best results and to achieve natural result one has to find a really good experienced practitioner like Rupesh.

What Happens At My Botox Consultation?

BOTOX consultation takes place face to face in our Harley Street Clinic. Facial areas of concern are assessed after their medical history and medical conditions are taken by Rupesh and the patient simultaneously using a handheld mirror during the initial consultation. Asymmetries such as uneven eyebrow height and eye aperture are identified. Areas are prioritised and treatment options discussed, including anticipated results, effects of Botox and possible complications. Photographs are taken as with any aesthetic procedure. Dynamic wrinkles and static photographs of treatment areas are typically taken before treatment and two weeks after treatment, once clinical effects are evident. Botox will give you that youthful look your are wanting.

You will meet with Rupesh, our highly trained aesthetic practitioner at 8 Harley Street, London for an in-person assessment of your skin. Rupesh, your highly trained and experienced practitioner will discuss the following with you at this consultation:

  • The best options for treatment for you given condition, and the results that you would likely achieve with each treatment
  • An explanation of the treatment or treatment plan
  • Go through your past medical history
  • Answer any questions you may have
  • Invite you to return back to the clinic if required to see us after your treatment

Botox Procedure

How to prepare for Botox injections:

In preparation for botulinum neurotoxin toxin treatment ( anti-wrinkle injections ), or any injectable procedure, bruising can be minimised by discontinuing aspirin and any medication or dietary supplement that has anticoagulant effects two weeks before treatment as this can lead to bruising.

How to perform the injectable treatment:

Botox ( botulinum toxin type a) is injected directly into the muscles at the affected area that cause the wrinkles, using a very small fine needle. Several injections are usually needed at specific sites, depending on the area treated (e.g frown, forehead, crow’s feet, bunny lines etc). When used to treat excessive sweating in the armpits, Botox is injected directed into the axillary skin. Localised discomfort and bruises can occur. Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately.

How much Botox should be injected:

Treatment with BOTOX is customised to your goals and needs. When you meet Rupesh, he will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.

            How many injections in the forehead?

For the forehead lines area, Rupesh will administer roughly 5 injections into a muscle in your forehead.

            How many injections for crow’s feet?

For the crow’s feet area, Rupesh will roughly inject 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the muscle that frames the other eye.

           How many units for frown lines?

For the frown lines area, Rupesh will roughly administer 5 injections into the muscles between your brows and in your forehead.

            How much Botox for lip flip?

For Lip Flip, Rupesh will roughly administer 4 injections into the muscles above your top lip near the vermillion border.

           What do 20 to 50 units of Botox do?

Depending on weather you are a men or a woman, size of the muscles and how deep your wrinkles are, the dosage of Botox will vary from 20 units for one are to 50 units for all three areas.

The size of the needle we use:

We use the thinnest hypodermic needle available to date. 33% thinner than a 30G needle and 14% thinner than the TSK 33G needle, resulting in a mere painless experience for our patients.

Who can administer the Botox treatment:

Botox is classed as prescription-only medicines in the UK, which means it can only be prescribed and given to a patient by a qualified prescriber. Make sure you visit a medical clinic for all your aesthetic procedures.

Botox Price

BOTOX OFFERS LONDON

The cost of Botox treatment depends on the areas injected and units of Botox injected. All clinics set their own prices. We believe in being transparent with our pricing structure. See our Botox London Prices. Botox appointments are available online.

On average three ares of Botox is £275 for women and £300 for men.

What is Botox and how does it work?

Botulinum toxin (BTX) is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium “Clostridium botulinum” and related species. It is also produced commercially for medical, cosmetic, and research use. There are two main commercial types: botulinum toxin type A and botulinum toxin type B. Botulinum toxin types A and B are used in medicine for, among others, upper motor neuron syndrome, focal hyperhidrosis, blepharospasm, strabismus, chronic migraine and bruxism.

What is Botox used for?

Botox – botulinum toxin can be used for medical conditions. At our clinic we use Botox purely for cosmetic reasons.

Medical Body Botox Examples include:

  • Cervical dystonia.
  • Lazy eye.
  • Muscle contractures.
  • Hyperhidrosis.
  • Chronic migraine.
  • Bladder dysfunction.
  • Eye twitching.

How does it work?

Botox itself is a purified protein made by the botulism bacteria, similar to the way penicillin is made from mould. It works by blocking the action of acetylcholine, thereby relaxing your muscles.

Can Botox look natural?

Depending on who is injecting the botulinum toxin injections, some things, like cosmetic procedures, should go unnoticed. Meaning, that Rupesh would much prefer you look more natural, and like yourself, rather than over-done. We would rather inject too little, so patients can come back for a small touch up, rather than too much where you run into more risks of looking fake.

What is Botox made of?

Botox anti-wrinkle treatment is an injectable drug made from botulinum toxin type A. This toxin is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

Who invented Botox?

Vancouver ophthalmologist Jean Carruthers and her husband, Alastair Carruthers, a dermatologist doctor, pioneered the cosmetic use of botulinum toxin, or Botox, in the late 1980s.

What was it used for originally?

Whilst we use botulinum toxin injections (Botox) for cosmetic purposes, Botox also has many useful medical applications.

It was originally used in the 1960’s to help realign crossed eyes. It’s now used in the treatment of many medical conditions including facial tics, cerebral palsy, muscle spasms, migraines and strokes.

Botox: For Who and When?

Best age to get Botox:

It’s not your age that determines when BOTOX is right for you, it’s the severity of your lines. We are seeing a rise in injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s at London Lip Clinic.

The truth is, everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Whenever your lines start to bother you, come and speak to Rupesh. He can help you determine if BOTOX treatment is right for you.

Does the Botox injectable treatment work for everyone?

The 3 reasons why BOTOX ( botulinum toxin injections ) will not work for you:

  • You are not getting enough units
  • You are not being injected correctly
  • You have developed antibodies

How do you know if you need Botox?

Good candidates for Botox wrinkle treatment include men and women who are physically healthy, realistic in their expectations, and interested in improving the appearance of forehead creases, glabellar lines and crow’s feet. Botox may not be appropriate for individuals with certain neuromuscular disorder like ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome.

Who should not use Botox?

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women
  • People with neuromuscular diseases
  • People allergic to human albumin
  • Allergic to Botulinum Toxin

Effectiveness of BOTOX

How long does Botox last?

When the effect of the Botox injection wears off, the wrinkles will always return to their pre-treatment state. Treatments can be repeated at a minimum of three monthly intervals, but the effects may last longer for some individuals, especially if they have had previous treatments to the same area.

            How long does it last the first time?

If you’re a having Botox treatment for the first time you may find that your results may not last as long. It takes a while before the injections fully achieve their desired, lasting results. Through repeated Botox injections, your specific facial muscles become conditioned, and the results will start to last longer. Botox on average lasts 3-4 months.

What botox lasts the longest?

We find that the SUPER clinical results and longevity we get using the category leader(1) Allergan BOTOX following the wrinkle treatment makes BOTOX work best for us. There is a major difference in prices between the brands as well. Make sure you know and ask your practitioner what toxin they are using before booking your treatment if you plan to visit other clinics.

(References: 1 BOTOX Cosmetic Prescribing Information 2017)

Botulinum toxin products in UK: Botox®, Vistabel®, Dysport® , Azzalure®, Xeomin® and Bocouture®. Please note these botulinum toxin products are not interchangeable.

How long after the injection to see results?

It usually takes between 5-14 days before the full effects of the treatment can be enjoyed. These results will last 2-4 months. As well as making you look fresher and younger, they can also make people appear more relaxed and less tired too. Botox does not give results immediately.

            Why does it take time to work?

Botox takes time to work because it must reach the cellular level of the muscle in order to block the neurotransmitters in the nerve, eventually causing the paralysation of the muscle.

There are a couple of reasons that this timing varies from patient to patient:

  • Area of treatment
  • Muscle thickness
  • The volume of Botox used

Why Botox sometimes doesn’t work?

The 3 reasons why BOTOX will not work for you:

  • You are not getting enough units
  • You are not being injected correctly
  • You have developed antibodies

There are alternative treatments such as dermal fillers if you are not suitable for Botox.

Botox Aftercare

Patients are advised to avoid lying down following treatment for four hours. They are also advised to avoid massaging or applying heat to the treatment area, and to avoid activities that cause flushing (such as exercising heavily, consuming alcohol, and hot tub, sauna, etc) on the day of treatment. These aftercare practices are used to reduce potential spread of the BOTOX toxin and ensures an effective treatment.

To allow the BOTOX to work optimally in the target muscle, the following precautions are usually suggested:

  • No rubbing or massaging of the injection site for 4 hours after treatment, including facials.
  • No strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Keep upright for 4 hours — no lying on your front.
  • Avoid headwear that is tightly fitted across the forehead.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol or medically necessary blood thinning medication before the treatment to prevent bruising.

What to expect after the injection?

Partial reduction in function of the targeted muscles is seen by the third or fourth day after botulinum neurotoxin toxin injection, with maximal reduction visible two weeks after injection. Return of muscle function is gradual, typically three to four months after treatment. Subsequent Botox treatment is advised when muscle contraction is visible in the treatment area before facial lines return to their pretreatment appearance. After multiple Botox treatments, botulinum toxin (Botox) effects may be prolonged and, for some patients, treatment intervals can be extended beyond three to four months.

What does Botox feel like when it kicks in?

Botox procedure will vary from person to person, and your first time Botox treatment will likely make you nervous. Well, we’ve got your back – Botox isn’t scary, and in our professional hands, you’ll have nothing to fear. If this is your first treatment, you may experience a “heavy” sensation in the treatment areas. Don’t worry! It will subside within 1-2 weeks. You may also experience feelings of tightness, and difference in your range of expressions. After two weeks you will look refreshed.

How painful is Botox?

Patients that have the injection with Rupesh report minimal discomfort. We use special needles imported from Germany.

How long does the bruise last? (and the injection marks)

Botox injections in the upper face are, usually, an almost pain-free procedure. The needles used are very small and, with good technique, it is almost always possible to avoid causing bruising.

How long can Botox move after injection?

Botox takes a few hours to bind to the injected muscles at the injection site. Until then it’s important to follow the aftercare instructions given to you. Do not lie down, keep upright for 4 hrs, do not bend over and no massage or sports are a few such things to avoid.

What to do and what to avoid after a Botox injection?

There are no studies that state that you should avoid certain foods before or after Botox treatment. Keeping hydrated with water is advised.

Any blood thinning medication or supplements can cause bruising. Alcohol and smoking can also thin your blood so should be best avoided. Follow the Botox Aftercare.

Does Botox look weird at first?

Botox takes up to two weeks to settle down after being first injected. Until then the muscles might be at different stages of relaxation.

Risks and Side Effects

Botox injections and safety:

Botox has a remarkably safe history. Any medication has risks, but the safety record for Botox is actually very robust.

Side effects & adverse reactions of Botox:

Many of these side effects can be avoided if proper injection techniques are used. The possibility of experiencing BOTOX injection side effects can be greatly reduced by choosing a qualified practitioner like Rupesh at London Lip Clinic who has extensive experience in performing the BOTOX injection procedure.

  • Mild numbness or tingling in the injection site
  • Minor swelling or bruising around the injection site
  • An allergic reaction to BOTOX
  • No improvement after undergoing treatment
  • Headache (temporary)
  • Nausea (temporary)
  • Drooping eyebrow or eyelid (usually temporary and can last two to three weeks)
  • Flu-like symptoms

The above is not an exhaustive list of side effects and risks. Talk to us if you wish to know more during the consultation.

            Does Botox cause weight gain?

Botox does not cause weight gain.

            Do you look older after Botox wears off?

Normally, it doesn’t. However, if you take more of the recommended dosage or start injecting too much Botox too early in your life, the toxin used as the active ingredient can strain your skin and make you more prone to the signs of ageing.

            Can Botox cause insomnia?

Sleeping should not be affected by Botox. We have not heard that Insomnia is a side effect of Botox.

What happens if Botox migrates?

Complications and adverse reactions from Botox injections can occur by the botulinum toxin spreading to nearby muscles that were not intended to be targeted by the treatment.

In the upper face, this can cause temporary drooping of the eyelid or eyebrow. Because this usually happens as a result of a small amount of the botulinum toxin from the anti-wrinkle injections spreading to the wrong area, rather than a direct injection into the wrong area, it tends to wear off quite quickly – usually within a couple of weeks.

In the lower face and neck, it is possible for the toxin to diffuse into muscles which help to move the mouth, resulting in a lopsided smile. Rarely, Botox treatment in the neck can affect speech and ability to swallow.

Can Botox ruin your face?

Botox used in low but effective doses, does not ruin your face. This is a temporary paralysation of the microscopic muscle nerve endings. If you over-do botox, you run the risk of freezing your face, and having no movement when you show expression, and not looking like your natural self.

Will my eyebrows droop?

Eyebrow droop and other adverse reactions typically happens with inexperienced injectors, who lack knowledge of facial anatomy, perform proper injection placement and amount of units of Botox injected.  When Botox injections are injected into the wrong area, or too much Botox is injected into the wrong area, this can result in facial asymmetry, eyebrow drooping or eyelid drooping.

Always go to experienced injectors like Rupesh in London who provide the correct injection technique that will prevent these problems from happening.

Where does the Botox toxin go when it wears off?

The protein in botulinum toxin – Botox is metabolised by liver and kidney and excreted from your body in between three to six months after first injection.

To ensure you are least likely to suffer from any side effects please use an experienced medical practitioner like Rupesh who specialises in Aesthetic Medicine.

Botox long term effects

In rare events, patients can be exposed to toxin spread, and Botox can lead to an infection akin to botulism, can have severe side effects and must be treated immediately. Inexperienced injectors are in large part the cause of severe risk or long-term side effects during Botox injections, which is why it is essential you work with an experienced medical professional for any Botox injections or treatment.

When you stop using Botox

There may come a time when you need to take a break from your Botox–like when you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.  You’ll notice your lines coming back during those months that you aren’t having your regular Botox treatments.  Once you start your Botox treatments again, though, you’ll be smooth again.

If there is some reason you decide to never have Botox again, then you’ll find that the lines you’ve been preventing start to get deeper with muscle movement and eventually become creases in your skin. The benefits of your prior Botox treatments will eventually be gone.

Do you have to keep getting it once you start?

You can decide to stop having Botox at any point.

            How often do you need the injection once you start?

The Botox treatment is only effective for about 12 weeks on average. There is some research which suggest after 2 yrs of having Botox, it may last for up to six months.

Botox safety long term

Botox is licensed by the MHRA in UK and US by Food & Drug Administration.

Botulinum Toxin BOTOX as a muscle relaxant has an excellent safety record and a long record of use in medicine. It has been used successfully in adults and children in variety medical conditions over the last 40 years. It has been used cosmetically to treat facial wrinkles for about 20 years and has become one of the most popular and frequently used cosmetic treatments at our London Lip Clinic.

Does Botox ruin my muscles?

Over time, repeated injections of Botox to a particular area in the body can also cause permanent paralysis of the muscle.

Are Fillers better than Botox?

The main difference between the two treatments ( Botox & Dermal fillers ) is as follows: Botox contains purified bacteria that freezes the muscles. In doing so, Botox can help minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by your facial expressions. Dermal fillers contain ingredients that add fullness to areas that have thinned due to ageing and actually plumps the skin to tackle wrinkles and lines that have already appeared on your face. Hence both treatments tackle different concerns.

Both forms of treatment ( Botox & Dermal fillers ) are highly effective at helping to maintain a youthful appearance and working as a temporary anti-aging solution for both men and women. Faye from Love Island is a fan of lip fillers and Botox.

BOTOX DURING PREGNANCY & BREAST FEEDING

Botox should not be used while nursing or pregnant. Botox injections are recognised as safe and, as yet, they have not been reported to transfer from mother to child. But, Botox injections contain neurotoxins that can be dangerous in large doses or for people allergic to these chemicals. Disease or infection caused by botulinum toxins is called botulism. Botulism can be life-threatening, especially in pregnant women, infants, those who are immune compromised or with gastrointestinal conditions. Though some research has found that botulinum toxins may be too large to cross the placenta during pregnancy, pregnant and nursing women are encouraged to avoid potential sources of the toxin, including certain foods. All infants should not be allowed to consume foods that are considered common sources of botulinum. Hence we do not administer BOTOX to pregnant or breast feeding women.

BABY BOTOX

Baby Botox is requested by a lot of nervous first timers. Baby Botox is simply injecting botox using a lower volume of Botox than a traditional injection to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Traditionally we would inject around 25 units in an area, whilst if you carried out Baby Botox then you would only inject around 12 units. Most of our patients ask us to refresh their looks with all our injectable treatments so they simply look youthful. At our central London clinic we do not want to create frozen looks.

BOTOX FOR MEN

BOTOX is an effective treatment for men for facial lines and wrinkles. More than ever, male patients are turning to Botox® to combat the signs of ageing and skin damage, and achieve firmer, younger-looking skin and an overall improved appearance and increased self-confidence.From the treatment of “crow’s feet” at the edge of the eyes to glabellar lines (wrinkles between the brows), BOTOX Injections can smooth a wide range of facial lines and wrinkles in men with a simple 15-minute treatment.

BOTOX FOR MEN TREATMENT PREPARATION

When you arrive at our Central London Harley Street Clinic for your BOTOX Injection treatment, you will first greeted by our Receptionist and guided to Rupesh room. You will be asked to fill out patient information and other forms before you start to discuss your expectations for the procedure. At this time, it is important to be honest about any allergies or other conditions that may not make you a good candidate for BOTOX treatment.

DURING BOTOX FOR MEN

Rupesh will decide where to administer the BOTOX injections by asking you to contract certain facial muscles. Based on your desired results and your ability to move these facial muscles, he will mark the locations to be treated. Any discomfort from the injections is usually minimal and lasts only a short time. The actual BOTOX LONDON Injection treatment typically takes about 10 minutes. After the BOTOX treatment is complete, you can return to your daily activities almost immediately. Men have larger muscles hence they always require almost double the doses of what we administer women.

BOTOX RESULTS AND TIME IT LASTS IN MEN

You should see a noticeable improvement after your Botox injection treatment in the treated areas within a few days after having the BOTOX treatment procedure, and the appearance of wrinkles should continue to improve for up to a month. BROTOX treatment results in men typically last up to three to four months.

The effects of anti-wrinkle injectables for men (brotox) last around three to four months, due to the muscle action returning over time. This is when wrinkles start to reappear and a touch up may be required. It can take multiple treatments for your muscles to respond fully to the toxin. Most clients notice that repeated use of Brotox over time results in lines re-appearing slower, thus delaying the need to retouch as often. This is because your skin has more time to regenerate the collagen it needs to fill in those lines and wrinkles.

BOTOX injections for men are a very subtle way to improve the appearance of the face. The doses required for men are slightly higher than the women’s doses hence their is a small supplement charge.

BOTOX LONDON is very popular treatment for both men and women at our London Harley Street Clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions

BOTOX, BOCOUTURE and Azzalure, are the three types of Botulinum Toxin Type A available for cosmetic use in the UK.

Botox is the most famous brand, mass-produced first in the 1990’s for treatment of facial aesthetic concerns.

Botox has more proteins; it is more like the natural product but may stimulate a greater immune response compared to the other products. Azzalure and Bocouture have fewer proteins, with Bocouture containing the least. This makes the product more “pure” but it may NOT contain all the properties conferred by Botox.

Make sure you know what is injected into your face. Allergan, Merz, and Galderma are three of the top manufacturers of neurotoxins and fillers—like Botox, Bocouture, Xeomin, Azzalure, and Dysport. We only use the original Allergan Botox at our clinic.

We find that the SUPER clinical results and longevity we get using the category leader(1) BOTOX following the treatment makes BOTOX works best for us.

There is a major difference in prices between the brands as well. Make sure you know and ask your practitioner what toxin they are using before booking your treatment.
(References: 1 BOTOX Cosmetic Prescribing Information 2017)

BOTOX is a biologic product that cannot be interchanged – or substituted – for another product. In fact, the FDA has stated BOTOX is “non-interchangeable,” which means that its safety and effectiveness cannot be claimed by any other product. The potency – or strength – of BOTOX is measured in scientifically defined units that cannot be compared to any other product, due to our unique manufacturing process. There are no substitutes for Allergan BOTOX product.

People who are prescribed a biologic product have a right to know exactly what they are receiving. Be sure to ask which product you are being prescribed, administered and why.

BOTOX Injections are suitable for everyone (unless you are pregnant or breastfeeding). ( see below)

Both men and women benefit from BOTOX Injection treatments, with the best results being seen on frown lines, across the forehead and in the outer corners of the eyes.

BOTOX Injection can be used to treat areas of advanced deterioration but it can also be used to fight very early signs of ageing. In fact, patients with very fair skin can start treatment in their late twenties and those with darker Afro-Caribbean skin can start in their early thirties.

The following conditions are contraindicated with this drug. Check with your doctor if you have any of the following:

Conditions:

  • botulism
  • Lou Gehrig’s disease
  • a disorder of the peripheral nerves that enable movement called peripheral motor neuropathy
  • myasthenia gravis
  • a skeletal muscle disorder
  • progressive muscle weakness with carcinoma
  • condition where one object appears as two or more object
  • double vision
  • blurred vision
  • drooping of the upper eyelid
  • pneumonia due to accidental inhalation of vomit

  • Botulinum Toxin

Botox derives from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium is present in many natural settings, including soil, lakes, forests, and in the intestinal tracts of mammals and fish.

Naturally occurring Clostridium botulinum bacteria and spores are generally harmless. Problems only arise when the spores transform and the cell population increases. At a certain point, the bacteria begin producing botulinum toxin, the deadly neurotoxin responsible for botulism.

Botulinum toxin is extremely toxic. In fact, some scientists have estimated that 1 gram (g) of crystalline toxin could kill 1 million people and a couple of kilograms could kill every human on earth.

However, according to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, (AOCD), Botox is safe and has few side effects when used in a therapeutic context.

Manufacturers make Botox injections from very small doses of botulinum toxin. The drug can temporarily paralyze muscles, which can benefit a range of muscle- and nerve-related disorders.

Commercial versions of Botulinum toxin include:

  • Botox (onabotulinumtoxin A)
  • Dysport (abobotulinumtoxin A)
  • Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin A)
  • Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxin A)

People use the term BOTOX interchangeably for these various products, though “Botox” is the registered trademark of Allergan Inc. (Taken from: medicalnewstoday.com)

What to Expect From a First Time Botox : BEFORE AND AFTER BOTOX

The effects of a Botox procedure will vary from person to person, and your first time Botox treatment will likely make you nervous. Well, we’ve got your back – Botox isn’t scary, and in our professional hands, you’ll have nothing to fear – A younger, fresher-looking appearance is in your grasp. The Before the Botox Procedure and After Botox Procedure is listed on our website.

There are two reasons not to exercise right after Botox treatments. You are allowed to resume exercise, for the most part except in special cases, the following day.

Exercise increases circulation in the body, including the face, which is why your face flushes and gets red when you work out. This increased circulation increase the risk that the Botox will be taken away from the injection zone before it gets fully absorbed into the neuromuscular junction.

Hence:

1) it may leave less Botox where we want it, and possibly decrease the effect, and

2) we do not want to do anything that increases the risk that the Botox will act anywhere other than where it is intended.

RUPESH sees and injects BOTOX to all his patients himself. He has been injecting patients for more than 10 years.

In accordance with the GPhC regulations, all of his anti-wrinkle Botox treatments are carried out by Rupesh. Unlike many of the other clinics in Harley Street, he does your full consultation and then performs the treatment himself. The treatment is painless (aside from a slight prick as the needle is first inserted), due to the tiny acupressure size needles that we use.

Rupesh can administer Botox injections in just 15 minutes, making this a very quick and straightforward procedure. However, your comfort is always our top priority and you will never feel rushed. Every treatment is only given after a thorough face-to-face consultation with Rupesh, who will use his wealth of experience and training to assess your facial muscle tone and skin quality to ensure that you get the best treatment possible. Rupesh will also talk through your expectations, so that you get the results that you are dreaming of.

Some patients wonder, can Botox make you nauseous? Though it is extremely uncommon, Botox can occasionally cause flu-like symptoms, which can include nausea. However, this side effect is rather uncommon, and typically patients will feel back to normal shortly after their treatment session.

We are able to offer a safe and successful treatment experience with Botox. However, many medical spas and “Botox parties” offer Botox treatments with inexperienced injectors, and this can lead to serious side effects. In these environments, health and safety are at greater risk, and the toxin could spread into the body. If you have recently received Botox injections from an inexperienced injector and are experiencing muscle weakness, blurred vision or double vision, difficulty breathing, difficulty speaking, painful urination, or urinary incontinence, contact a healthcare professional immediately.

Side effects caused by Botox injections typically resolve a few days after treatment. In rare cases, side effects such as droopy eyelids can last several weeks after treatment. Nevertheless, most side effects from Botox resolve on their own, within a few months, and are not permanent.

For many patients, long-term use of Botox can have wonderful effects. Particularly when it comes to cosmetic treatment, continued use of Botox can help to relax the facial muscles and, in turn, reduce the severity of dynamic wrinkles. For many who continually use Botox in the form of micro-botox or touch-up injections, Botox actually can manage to “turn back the clock” on ageing, creating natural-looking rejuvenation thanks to Rupesh’s less-is-more philosophy and artful hand.

For patients who suffer from issues such as TMJ disorder, chronic migraines, or hyperhidrosis, a series of Botox treatments can help to permanently improve quality of life.
