Botox Wrinkle Relaxing Injections


What is Botox®?

Botox® (Botulinum toxin) is a bacterium that blocks the release of acetylcholine, the substance responsible for transmitting electrical impulses that elicit muscle contraction. In medicine, botulinum toxin is injected directly into hyperactive muscles. It has been safely and effectively used for treatment of strabismus (cross-eye) and blepharospasm (eyelid spasms) since the early Eighties.

It is the number one treatment for lines and wrinkles in the UK and we certainly see this reflected in our Frampton on Severn and Swindon Clinics!

How does Botox® work?

Hyperactivity of the facial expression muscles often results in the development of deep frown lines, forehead lines and/or crow's feet. Injecting botulinum toxin into the affected area temporarily paralyzes the underlying muscles responsible for wrinkling, giving the face a more relaxed and pleasant appearance. The wrinkles become smoother or disappear altogether. Botulinum toxin therapy cannot replace wrinkle correction methods such as collagen implantation, laser peeling or autologous fat transplantation when these are necessary.

The clinically tested and proved brand we use on our clients, who come from all over the Midlands, Bristol, Swindon and Cheltenham to have treatment with us, is Azzalure.

What can Botox® treat?

Botox® is a clinically proven anti wrinkle / wrinkle reducing treatment commonly used to treat facial lines such as the forehead, frown lines and crows feet.

Botox® is also used as a cure for hyperhidrosis and excessive sweating as the injection of Botulinum toxin into the sweat glands prevent sweat from being produced.  Botox® hyperhidrosis treatment is used on the forehead, underarms, palms of hands and soles of feet and we find our clients results last around 8-12 months.

Botox® can be used for migraine relief too.  Botox® injections into the forehead therefore have dual benefits as both to reduce lines and wrinkles as well as a treatment for migraines.

Botox® Treatment:

Before Botox® treatment?

Before your Botox® treatment at one of our state of the art clinics in Wiltshire or Gloucestershire, you will be invited for a consultation with our trained and qualified Dr. Alison Duncan. Dr. Alison will discuss with you the potential side effects of botulinum toxin therapy, contraindications to therapy and potential drug interactions.

Our staff are always here to help and they are available throughout all stages of your treatment so if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. 

During Botox® treatment?

During your Botox® treatment we want you to be as comfortable as possible we understand that you may be slightly nervous about treatment so our aim is to make you feel at ease with us. Our clients, local Frampton on Severn and Swindon men and women just like you, relay to us that they experience much less discomfort than they originally anticipate and it is relatively pain free. The injection of the Botulinum toxin varies according to the area being treated but generally only takes a couple of minutes to administer.

After Botox® treatment?

After Botox® the initial effects of treatment become visible within 48 to 72 hours with redness and some inflammation of the treated area. The maximum effect is reached in about 1 to 2 weeks. Your facial expression will become more relaxed, but by no means mask-like. The overall result is very natural.

Botulinum toxin injection is generally a safe and effective treatment method. Nevertheless, certain side effects can occur but, like the intended treatment effects, they are mostly reversible.

The effect of treatment generally lasts for 3 to 6 months. Re-treatment is then required.
