When considering botulinum toxin injections for wrinkles, it is important to understand what result can be achieved, how it works and who is best to see for your treatment.
Treatment at PHI Clinic
In order to assess what treatment is most suitable for you, our doctors must first consult you based on the indication. There are many different treatments available for fine lines and wrinkles, so it is important to determine what will get the best result for you as an individual, offering you the best for your individual requirements.
Botox® treatment and dermal fillers are ONLY administered by our doctors and injectable nurses at PHI Clinic. Although the cosmetic industry is largely unregulated, meaning treatment can technically be administered by anyone in the UK, we believe that only medically-trained professionals should perform these types of treatment.
Experience & Skill
Dr Tapan Patel is one of the UK’s leading injectors, with over 15 years’ experience in the field. He regularly treats patients at 102 Harley Street, and also teaches delegates worldwide on the latest injectable techniques.
At PHI Clinic, we only use the original, authentic Botox® from Allergan. The product has over 100 years’ clinical studies to back its efficacy and safety, and is even used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and children with cerebral palsy.
Injections for wrinkles
Our doctors are dedicated to achieving natural-looking results. We refrain from over-treating to avoid the ‘frozen’ look. We wish for patients to look good for having treatment, but not to have tell-tale signs of treatment. On average, Botox® lasts between 3-4 months and will fully take around 10 days after treatment.
Due to the skill of our practitioners, the thorough consultation process and the fine micro-needles we use at PHI Clinic, our patients have minimal downtime following treatment. We advise patients not to take ibuprofen and other medications that thin the blood before treatment, as this can contribute to bruising. We also suggest patients do not over exert themselves for 48 hours afterwards, and to avoid hot baths, saunas, steam rooms and similar environments.
Patients may have a review 2 weeks after the initial treatment to check the results of the treatment. It is only at this point we can review Botox® cases, as we need to see the full effect of the muscle relaxing injection.
