They say the wrinkles on our face tell a story but for some, fine lines and wrinkles can create concerns on ageing which can lead to some seeking treatment for botox in London. Botulinum toxin is a prescription drug that is used in aesthetic medicine as a wrinkle relaxer as well as a way of treating excessive sweating, teeth grinding and cerebral palsy.
Whilst there is a stigma associated with Botox around creating a ‘frozen face’ look, here at PHI Clinic we believe in enhancing natural beauty by providing natural results for our patients and when in the right hands, Botox is incredibly safe to use and has been tried and tested to provide long-lasting results with on-going treatment.

The Difference Between Dermal Fillers And Botox
Botox injections can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscle under the surface of the skin to prevent movement that creates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As an anti-wrinkle treatment, Botox can treat concerns like crows feet, forehead lines and can even treat cases of excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis.
Like Botox, dermal fillers are used to treat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However unlike botox, dermal fillers consist of high levels of Hyaluronic Acid that attract and retain water to improve the skin’s appearance and texture by essentially filling in lines and wrinkles to restore the skin’s natural plumpness.
Who Should Perform Treatment?
Whether you are looking for treatment here at PHI Clinic or elsewhere, we just want you to be safe when proceeding with a consultation or treatment. Avoid practitioners with no training and are not a medical professional and look out for the following things:
- Their training, qualifications and experience
- Name of product that will be used and if it is licensed
- Any risks or side effects
- What insurance cover they have
Botulinum toxin can only be prescribed in an in-person consultation by a qualified medical practitioner such as a dentist, doctor, nurse and surgeon.
