What is Botulinum Toxin?

Botulinum toxin type A (BOTOX®, or VISTABEL®) is used for treating frown lines, eye lines (crow's feet), forehead furrows, lip lines, neck lines, and down turned mouths.

- Frown lines
- Eye lines (crow's feet)
- Forehead furrows
- Lip lines
- Neck lines
- Down-turned mouths.

It can also be used for preventing excessive perspiration in under arms and hands (Hyperhidrosis).

How does it work?

The injections temporarily relax facial muscles, helping reduce the muscle contractions causing lines and wrinkles and ultimately helping the skin to repair.

After an initial consultation our doctors will assess the severity of the muscle contractions causing the lines and wrinkles of the area to be treated, and then carefully administer a few tiny injections of Botulinum toxin. This is a very quick procedure taking 15 – 20mins.

Botulinum toxin take a few days to penetrate the muscle. The results vary from person to person, but one would expect the results to last around 4-5 months.

More information on our treatments

Botulinum Toxin type A (e.g. BOTOX®) injections can help reduce lines and wrinkles which are caused by contractions of the underlying facial muscles. The more you laugh, smile and frown, the more prominent these wrinkles become as they gradually wear away the collagen in your skin.
Thread Veins, also known as Spider Veins, Dermal Flares or Broken Veins are fine veins that are visible through the skin. These veins tend to occur on the legs, face, cheeks or nose. This is mainly due to UV damage to the skin and/or pregnancy. Thread Veins can be treated with Microsclerotherapy injections which block the veins, preventing blood flow and causing them to shrink.
Botox is now licensed and approved for the treatment of headache in migraine and this treatment is offered by Cosmeticare. A wide range of effective treatments is available for this condition which affects one in seven adults in the UK. Migraine is a complex condition and requires the services of a qualified physician to ensure treatment success.
Derma FNS Derma FNS™ is a micro-needling treatment that uses a precisely controlled set of skin needles to create thousands of tiny holes in the skin. This causes the release of natural hormones called “growth factors” which encourage the breakdown of old damaged skin and stimulate new collagen and elastin development; the building blocks of healthy new skin.
Hyperhidrosisis a condition that causes excessive sweating. Although not a serious threat to health, it can cause emotional and psychological distress, embarrassment and negatively impact a person’s quality of life. We offer a non-surgical treatment for excessive underarm sweating. BOTOX can be used to prevent sweat under the arms and palms. The effects of this treatment last for several months, leaving you feeling more comfortable and confident to enjoy life.
