Botox: what you need to know

At PHI Clinic, we are proud to provide the best Botox treatment in London. We offer safe and effective botulinum toxin anti-wrinkle injections that are only prescribed by our highly-experienced medical practitioners.


Botox is the original and most extensively studied anti wrinkle cosmetic treatment on the market, trusted by millions to give them a more youthful and energised appearance. Botox works as a muscle relaxant by temporarily reducing activity in the facial muscles responsible for facial lines like frown lines, forehead furrows and crow’s feet. Expression lines are smoothed, creating a younger, rejuvenated look with natural results.


Botox is also a widely used non-surgical treatment for Jawline slimming (Masseter Botox) & excessive sweating.

Who will perform my Botox treatment?

Dr Tapan Patel leads a team of highly-qualified doctors and nurses at PHI Clinic. They are all specialists in the art of reducing lines and wrinkles with Botox while preserving a natural look. All patients have a consultation ahead of having Botox to ensure they receive a safe, high-quality treatment with us.


The process begins with an initial consultation, where your practitioner will assess the patient's skin type, facial muscle activity, and individual concerns. Your practitioner will take your medical history, discuss your skin concerns and goals, and create a bespoke Botox plan for you, outlining your anticipated results. Our clinic team will also take photographs before and after your treatment to enable us to monitor your Botox results and ensure we have achieved the optimum results for you.


During the initial treatment, the botulinum toxin is injected into specific facial muscles, blocking nerve signals responsible for muscle contraction. This helps alleviate muscle spasms, reducing the appearance of deeper lines, especially in areas like Perioral Lines and eye wrinkles.

Masseter Botox for a wide jawline

A wide, square jaw in women can be seen as a masculine or unattractive trait. Some women are born with a large jaw bone, others develop a square jaw over time by over-developing their masseter (chewing) muscle through habits such as teeth grinding or excessive chewing gum. When a wide jaw is caused by an oversized masseter, we can use Botox to relax this muscle and create a softer, less square look to the jaw.

Botox for crow’s feet

Crow’s feet, also known as 'smile lines', are wrinkles that form around the corners of the eyes. They are one of the first signs of ageing, but factors such as sun damage and smoking play a large part too. Crow’s feet begin to form when collagen levels decline with age.


Skin is less able to ‘bounce back’ as it moves, and repeated expressions like laughing and squinting eventually turn into permanent fine lines and wrinkles. Targeted Botox injections can be extremely effective for this area. They relax the muscles that cause crow’s feet, allowing these lines to smooth out.

Botox for a gummy smile

A gummy smile is often caused by overactive elevator muscles in the upper lip which pull the lip up in an extreme fashion when a person is smiling or speaking. This can make the sufferer feel self-conscious, but fortunately it is an issue that can be effectively addressed with Botox.


Targeted injections by our specialists at PHI Clinic can temporarily relax the muscles that cause the lip to lift up to an exaggerated degree, reducing the appearance of a gummy smile. Results are typically seen within 3-5 days and last for 3-4 months.

Botox for teeth grinding

Teeth grinding, also called bruxism, is unconscious clenching of the teeth. This may occur during both waking and sleeping hours, and can cause physical pain such as jaw soreness and headaches. It is also a source of dental problems including tooth sensitivity, chipped teeth and worn enamel.


At PHI Clinic London we treat this condition by using Botox to relax the specific muscles responsible for teeth grinding. This provides relief from the constant teeth grinding, and also softens the look of a jaw widened by persistent clenching. Treatment takes around 20 minutes, and results last 3-4 months.

Botox for frown lines

Anti wrinkle treatment for lines was the original use of Botox and remains one of its most popular applications today. Frown lines, also called glabellar lines or 'bunny lines', are the vertical furrows between the eyebrows, typically shaped like the number 11.


These expression lines turn into permanent static lines when the skin loses its ability to spring back after frowning, leaving people with an angry or worried look. Skin loses its natural elasticity with age, as collagen and elastin break down, but sun damage, smoking, poor diet and a highly expressive face all contribute to the formation of frown lines. Treatment for frown lines involves, careful placement of Botox is able to relax the muscles used for frowning, smoothing out the furrows and creating a happier, more relaxed looking expression reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox for forehead lines

Botox is perhaps best known for treating lines on the forehead. It is extremely effective on horizontal furrows (vertical lines) across the forehead, which can form dynamic wrinkles by repeated raising of the eyebrows. Age, genetics, a highly expressive face, sun damage and smoking all affect how soon these lines develop, and how deep they become. Botox works by relaxing the frontalis muscle responsible for forehead wrinkles, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance.

When will I see results and how long will they last?

Botox works by temporarily blocking certain chemical signals that enable muscles to contract. Botox injections are most commonly used to relax the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, smokers lines and smile lines, causing these expression lines to smooth out. Results are usually seen after 5-7 days.


Patients may resume daily activities shortly after the procedure, as the treatment is generally considered safe. Results become noticeable in the days to weeks following the treatment, with the full effects often visible a few weeks after the procedure. The longevity of the treatment varies from patient to patient, and occasional touch-up sessions may be recommended to maintain the desired aesthetic outcome.


At PHI Harley Street London (aesthetic clinic), our goal is always to preserve sufficient facial movement for a natural look while relaxing the muscles enough to create a visibly smoother appearance. For this reason, we would always prefer to put in too little Botox initially to treat facial lines than too much. If our patients wish to return for a follow-up appointment, we are happy to add a little bit more if required as results vary from person to person. As the effects of Botox are temporary, patients usually have a top-up treatment every 3-4 months to maintain their results.

Does Botox hurt?

The treatment itself should be virtually painless, thanks to the skill and experience of all PHI practitioners. We use ultra-fine needles at PHI for maximum comfort, and the treatment is completed quickly. We describe the sensation of being injected with Botox London as a slight scratch, lasting just a fraction of a second. It is extremely well tolerated by patients, and no local anaesthetic is required. There is no downtime after Botox treatment.

Is there any reason I couldn’t have Botox?

If you have a medical condition that can affect safety, such as damaged nerves or muscle issues, it is important for you to disclose this information during your consultation to avoid any complications. PHI does not offer Botox treatment to patients who are pregnant or breast feeding.


While there are no clinical studies to show that Botox London is harmful to the baby or mother, medical professionals would not treat patients in these circumstances. Beyond these circumstances, there are no medical reasons for exclusion. The most important thing is to see a qualified practitioner, and be properly assessed for suitability.

Am I a suitable candidate for Botox?

Botox injections can be used on a wide range of patients, most commonly those wanting to reduce expression lines such as frown lines and crow’s feet. It can also be used to rebalance features such as a sagging brow or heavy jawline, and to treat persistent tooth grinding or excessive sweating. It is vital to have a thorough consultation with a qualified practitioner to ensure you are a good candidate for Botox.


During your consultation, your experienced doctor or nurse will carefully assess your concerns and discuss the results you can expect to see from having a Botox cosmetic procedure. Patient satisfaction is our key concern. We would only treat you with Botox if we were confident it was an appropriate treatment for your goals but its important to understand that results can vary from person to person.


The overall goal of Botox and dermal filler treatments is to enhance the patient's appearance by smoothing out lines and wrinkles, providing an effective solution for individuals seeking a non-invasive approach to facial rejuvenation. Located in our renowned center in Harley Street, London, these aesthetic treatments have gained popularity for their ability to deliver satisfying results, contributing to the field of aesthetic medicine.
