So, what is Botox?

Botox (Botulinum toxin) is a trade name for a substance that is injected into the skin which is known to inhibit muscle movement and prevent wrinkles from worsening or developing. It works by blocking nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.
When injected into the problem area, it can freeze muscle movement for a period of 12-16 weeks. Botox, therefore, needs to be administered a few times a year to maintain the curative effects.
Botulinum Toxin is available under four product formulations. Botox, Instable, Azzalure and Boucouture. Whilst all four are generated from the same bacteria, the Botox brand has the most botulinum toxin in it and lasts the longest.
There are some wrinkles, such as static ones, that can be improved with Botox but they may otherwise require treatment with dermal filler. These tend to be horizontal lines that appear between the hairline and eyebrows and can otherwise be known as worry lines.

How much do they cost?

  • 1 area from £200
  • 2 areas from £275
  • 3 areas from £300

Depending on the extent and depth of the wrinkle/s treated, additional Botox may be required to reach the desired effect. An additional charge of £50 may be applied if additional quantities of Botox are needed. This may apply to new patients that have previously never had Botox and to male clients that tend to have deeper lines due to more pronounced facial muscles.
