Botox® Treatments

Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest. A very popular, safe and effective treatment to reduce lines and wrinkles is Botox®.

What is Botox®?

Botox® (Botulinum toxin type ‘A’) is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It was developed during the 1970s – 1980s to treat blepharospasm (spasm of the eyelids) and strabismus (squint). In 1997 it achieved FDA approval for cosmetic use in the USA and by 2006 was granted a license by the MHRA in the UK for the treatment of frown lines. Worldwide, now more than 3 million Botox® treatments take place per year. Botox® is one of the many trade names for the neurotoxic protein called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

How Does Botox® Treatment Work?

BOTOX® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). It works at the neuromuscular junction by blocking the transmission of signals from the nerve ending to the targeted muscle. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. This is called cosmetic denervation and it is a new use for an approved drug that has been safely utilised for eleven years to treat many neurological and opthalmological disorders. These procedures use a small amount of diluted botulinum toxin that enables controlled weakening of muscles.

Similarly, wrinkles are caused by contraction of other delicate facial muscles like when you raise your eyebrows you form lines to the upper forehead and when you smile/laugh this forms crows feet. The result is not permanent because the nerve ending re-establishes it’s signalling by forming new nerve sprouts. This sprouting takes approximately 3-6 months, at which point the muscle regains it’s activity and the wrinkles begin to reappear.

What Can Be Treated With Botox®?

Botox® is most commonly used to reduce wrinkles on the face and can be used to reduce excessive sweating of the armpits and hands. Common facial treatment areas are

  • Glabella (commonly known as frown lines)
  • Upper forehead lines
  • Smile lines (commonly known as crows feet).

What Results Can You Expect?

The result is not permanent because the nerve ending re-establishes it’s signalling by forming new nerve sprouts. This sprouting takes approximately 3-6 months, at which point the muscle regains its activity and the wrinkles begin to reappear.

The results are not immediately visible but will become apparent within 3-14 days.

What are the possible side effects of Botox®

Side Effects are very rare: though bruising is the most common. Side effects noted are; small areas of redness at the treatment site, lasting 2-3 hours, dull heavy sensation +/- occasional headache, ptosis (droop) of eyebrow or eyelid and double vision. All possibilities will be explained in detail at your consultation before any treatment takes place.

How is Botox® Administered?

Botox procedures do not require anesthesia and usually take just a few minutes to perform. The protein is injected into the muscle using a fine needle in order to minimize discomfort and maximize accuracy. In order to minimize bruising, patients should stop using aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications about two weeks before treatment.

Q: Are you members of the "Treatment You Can Trust Scheme?"

We are not a member of the voluntary 'Treatments You Can Trust' Scheme. Our practices are not registered with the 'Treatments You Can Trust' voluntary scheme because we are already registered with and regulated by the General Medical Council (GMC) and the Nursing & Midwifery Council(NMC) the government's own regulator of Doctors and Nurses in England, as well as being part of the Spire Health Care Hospitals Group stringent clinic protocols and criteria.

We are regulated in the same way as GP surgeries, hospitals and other independent healthcare providers which means our standards imposed for registrations are far more rigorous than the voluntary IHAS scheme has set out for clinics to meet.

We do welcome the IHAS voluntary scheme in a currently unregulated cosmetic injectable market as we believe the industry needs proper regulation to safeguard patient safety from 'cowboy' providers who can still operate outside any voluntary scheme. In the aftermath of the PIP breast implant scandal, we believe that all cosmetic procedures should be regulated.
