Do you have any of these?
Frown lines and crow’s feet are the tell-tale signs of ageing and can have a rigorous effect on your self-esteem. Perhaps you are starting to feel that the person you see in the mirror doesn’t reflect the way you feel inside?
There’s no doubt modern society values the essence of youth and beauty, making it difficult to accept the natural consequences of ageing on a daily basis.
Fortunately, methods of improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles have evolved and you can now achieve a natural youthful look without going under the knife.
Botox® is a globally popular treatment option for men and women. Using Botox® injections in carefully targeted facial muscles, we can smooth the appearance of the deep, persistent lines between your brows that develop over time. A simple 10 minute treatment – which requires just a few tiny injections – will relax the muscles that cause those lines to form and keep them relaxed for up to 4 months.

Botox® Frequently Asked Questions
Botox® is particularly effective for softening the facial lines that appear on the upper half of your face, e.g. forehead furrowing, eye lines (crows’ feet) and frown lines between the eyes.
For people with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating/perspiration), Botox® can be a life-changing treatment choice.
Unlike surgery, Botox® is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. In other words, you should be able to return directly to work or carry on with your normal activities immediately after your treatment.
Within just days, you should notice your face looking more natural and relaxed.
In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as moderate to better. For many, Botox® virtually ‘erases’ these lines altogether.
When people first come to us to discuss Botox®, they often mention that they are worried about receiving the ‘Hollywood’ look resulting in a frozen, paralysed expression and no longer looking like themselves.
Here at the Chiltern Medical Clinics, our focus is on giving you natural-looking results. Typically, people will know you’ve had something done to look refreshed and rejuvenated but they won’t know what. People often comment after treatment that their friends and family ask them if they’ve been away somewhere relaxing or had a great facial.
Yes. Botox® is a popular treatment that can dramatically transform and refresh your appearance, especially when used in combination with other rejuvenation treatments, such as dermal skin fillers.
In small doses, Botulinum toxin can be injected into specific muscles to temporarily relax them and stop them contracting. In turn, this means that the facial lines formed by the pull of underlying muscles will then diminish or disappear. This treatment is reversible, wearing off naturally after approximately four months.
Using a tiny needle, we are able to inject a very small amount of Botox® into targeted locations on your face. Because the needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is used, the discomfort associated with the injections is minimal – most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. No sedation or local anaesthetic is needed, and you can resume normal activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to the office.
Although Botox® has an exceptional safety record, it is not suitable for anyone who is pregnant, breast feeding, taking antibiotics or suffering from severe neuromuscular disorders. We will discuss your suitability for treatment during your initial free consultation. To date, thousands of women and men have already discovered the benefits of Botox® through the Chiltern Medical Clinics.
Not really, most people only experience a mild temporary discomfort. There is a slight swelling immediately after which settles within a few hours or quicker with the application of an ice compress.
You should start to notice a difference in your appearance within 5 days of your treatment, although the greatest effect is seen after approximately 2 -3 weeks.
The effects of Botox® usually last for two to six months, but this will depend on your individual response. Repeat treatments have been shown to last longer.
Treatment with Botox® can typically be repeated indefinitely.
There are really no pre-treatment requirements. However, after your treatment, we request that you move the treated muscles frequently and not lie flat on your back for four hours.
You can book a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss having Botox® to smooth your facial lines and wrinkles. During this consultation, we will be able to identify the best course of treatment and give you a full breakdown of the costs.
