Botulinum Toxin

Botox treatment in Leicester and Coventry, Midlands by a specialist facial surgeon.

Who can benefit from botulinum toxin treatment

Maybe you catch sight of yourself in a mirror unexpectedly or see a photograph taken in an unguarded moment. It could be the frown lines you notice. Perhaps the furrows across your forehead or the crows’ feet around your eyes, we’re all different. What‘s happened?

Most of us develop habitual use of the expression muscles around the eyes and forehead. With time, the frown lines can deepen, forehead furrows seem engrained and crow’s feet become prominent. Eventually, skin lines remain even when you’re not frowning.

How does botulinum toxin treatment help?

If these muscles can be relaxed then the expression lines soften and skin lines fade or don’t develop at all. This relaxed and rested appearance can improve the way you feel about yourself and provide confidence in social situations.

An initial consultation is required to discuss your concerns and establish whether muscle relaxing injections would help. Botulinum toxin muscle relaxing injections, commonly known as Botox, Vistabel or Dysport, are prescription only medicines, licensed for the treatment of frown lines, and can help provide this desired effect.

What are the treatment arrangements?

As a prescription medicine, botulinum toxin injections should only be administered by a trained doctor following a consultation and examination, or a nurse under direct supervision. My patients have the confidence of knowing that their assessment and treatment is performed by a consultant facial surgeon and treatment is personalised for their needs.

At each visit, all areas across the upper face are treated to achieve a balanced and harmonious relaxation. Everybody’s face is different and so the details of each patient’s treatment are recorded to provide a guide for subsequent visits to ensure the optimum effect. Typically, the new relaxed look lasts for three to four months.

What are the benefits?

With relaxation of the expression muscles across your upper face, you can look relaxed and refreshed. If you get the look of the eyes right, it can lighten up your whole face.

There is a word of warning. You will probably love the effect which will mean that you’ll find yourself returning for further treatments!
