As there is a lack of definite statistics on non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the UK, it is hard to precisely estimate exactly what treatment is the most popular, but we can make an educated guess based on trends, the patients we see ourselves, and discussion between professionals. Botulinum toxin wrinkle treatment is certainly one of the most common treatments we perform at PHI Clinic, and is one of the most well-known cosmetic procedures in the world.
Botulinum Toxin Uses
Botulinum toxin is a purified protein that is used by practitioners all over the world to relax muscles for aesthetic purposes. By introducing the product into a target muscle via a needle, a clinician can employ Botulinum toxin to smooth over fine lines and wrinkles on the face, as well as slim the jaw by relaxing the muscle that creates the squared appearance. It can also be injected into the calves in a calf slimming treatment, and even reduce the effects of hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, in the hands, feet, armpits, and head.
Botulinum toxin is commonly known as Botox, but this is a brand name for a product manufactured by Allergan, the same company who create Juvederm dermal fillers. Botox is the only treatment with FDA approval that can temporarily reduce the appearance of severe frown lines, laugh lines (crow’s feet), and forehead lines.
Results are noticeable approximately 3-7 days after treatment, and last for 3-4 months on average. We see this as an ongoing treatment at PHI Clinic, and recommend top up appointments at 3-4 month intervals.
Botulinum Toxin Wrinkle Treatment Consultation
We require a consultation for new patients prior to any treatment going ahead. This is in order for our clinicians to perform an in depth assessment and get to know your individual needs before recommending an appropriate course of action to address your concerns.
We do not perform same day treatment at PHI Clinic, and require a minimum of 24 hours between consultation and your first appointment.
