BOTOX® Cosmetic

Botox Before and After

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are growing in popularity in the UK. We all want to look younger and healthier. Never mind the actual years, even the constant stress and fatigue associated with everyday living can age your face prematurely. BOTOX® Cosmetic allows the professionals at our Central London practice to refine your appearance with an injectable, purified botulinum toxin. When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the wrinkles, the toxin proceeds to relax the muscles of the injected area, smoothing the skin and seeming to miraculously halt — and even reverse — the aging process.

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments performed at our Central London practice are very safe. Typically, anaesthetics are not required, because the injection is delivered with an ultra-thin needle and in small doses. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections disrupt nerve signals to the muscles. The muscles then are allowed to relax, permitting the wrinkles to smooth out. Usually noticeable in two to three days, the effects can last up to six months, fading gradually from there. Repeated treatments provide for more prolonged results, extending the time between injections.
