Wrinkle relaxing injections, Botox®
What is Botox®?
Botulinum toxin is a natural protein made by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. There are different types of botulinum toxin available in the United Kingdom, Type A and Type B.
The Type A toxins are more popular in the UK. The Type A toxins include the most popular toxin brand Botox® (Vistabel).
How does Botox® work?
Botox® blocks the nerve signals from travelling from the nerve to the muscle. Therefore your facial muscles do not move and therefore you will see less skin wrinkling.
Botulinum toxin is most effective when used by an experienced aesthetic doctor. It can be used to treat any area of the face that becomes wrinkled with sun damage and age.
Can Botox® prevent wrinkles?
Botulinum toxin is an effective anti-wrinkles treatment for wrinkles which are caused by normal facial movement and ageing.

Common side effect include minor discomfort from the injections. Few patients experience any significant pain.

How does it work?
PRP treatment has been used over the last two decades in sport medicine to treat sport injury, burns and skin injuries and in dentistry to treat gum conditions and to strengthen dental implants. We also use PRP in Cosmetic Dermatology now.
A sample of blood is taken from your arm and centrifuged with a special machine to separate into red cells, serum and the platelets rich plasma. PRP is the component of blood we separate from the rest and use for treatment. We also can add vitamins and amino acids to enrich the PRP which is then injected back into the skin.
The PRP is rich in growth factors which stimulate fibroblasts and pre- adipocyte call to convert to fat cells. Hence, your skin becomes more youthful- looking, more plump with fewer wrinkles.
What are the potential side effects?
You might experience a mild discomfort similar to having a vaccine at your GP.
What are the other options?
We can combine other treatments that may be suitable for your skin needs including dermal fillers, micro-mesotherapy. Our doctor will invite you for a consultation to assess your skin condition and help to decide on treatment options.
