Botox

Introduction

The Body & Face Clinic provides non-invasive anti-wrinkle injections (BOTOX® injections) and anti-ageing fine facial injection treatments. BOTOX® treatment is an established brand name and quite simply, it just works. It is suitable for almost anybody who wishes to smooth those laughter lines. You may be looking to try treatment for the first time or you may be a returning client who trusts us. We only use the very latest and highly successful fine facial injection and dermal filler treatments.

Why Botox?

As we get older our skin loses some of its elasticity and we notice this as frown lines and wrinkles around the eyes. However, this can be remedied without the need for costly and invasive cosmetic surgery by simple injections to the forehead and eye areas.
Simply call to book your free initial consultation, and we will talk to you about the various anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle options which are available. If you have received BOTOX® in the past we can proceed with your treatments there and then. It’s quick – the procedure normally takes just thirty minutes. We review your treatments after two weeks, and can top up as necessary.

How Does It Work?

Botox injections use a toxin called onobotulinumtoxinA to temporarily prevent a muscle from moving. This toxin is produced by the microbe that causes botulism, a type of food poisoning.
Botox was the first drug to use botulinum toxin. Other products now include abobotulinumtoxinA (Dysport), rimabotulinumtoxinB (Myobloc) and incobotulinumtoxinA (Xeomin). Each is a little different, particularly when it comes to dosage units, so they aren’t interchangeable.
