Botox

Botox has become renowned in its own right as the leading injectable anti-wrinkle treatment in London, and for good reason, too: it just works. Our highly trained cosmetic doctors and nurses here at the Royal Wharf Clinic are dedicated to tailoring a specific Botox regime based on your desired goals and current physical features.

Botox

Whenever we pull a facial expression, whether that may be a squint, frown, or smile, the muscles in our face contract. As the years go by, frequent contraction, accompanied by various external social and environmental factors, crow’s feet, lines, and wrinkles will start to form. These lines and wrinkles can make us look older and even affect our sense of confidence and self-esteem.

There’s a common misconception regarding Botox use, that it only produces plastic-like effects that look unnatural. This is true when Botox is used inappropriately or excessively. Botox can be used to combat signs of ageing, leaving muscles unable to contract and crease the skin, which results in a smoother, younger appearance.

Our doctors and nurses, through education and experience, are able to guide you on the amount of Botox you’ll need per session and help restore the youthfulness of skin damaged by the sun or affected by the hardship of life. We also offer a variety of other anti-ageing treatments that can be used in combination with Botox to produce longer-lasting effects. Contact our team to arrange a consultation with our staff and kick-start your journey back to youth.

NEED TO KNOW

Once you’ve decided that Botox treatment is for you, you’ll need to arrange a consultation with a member of our staff. During your consultation, our consultant will ask you about your desired goals and aesthetic appearance, whether or not you require Botox to help treat a medical condition and explain in detail the process of the procedure. You will also be asked to perform several certain facial movements, such as smiling, frowning, and raising your eyebrows. This examination helps our consultant identify how your face naturally moves so that the Botox injections can be placed correctly. A medical assessment will then be taken to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for treatment. If there are no contraindications, our staff will register your profile using our HIPAA and GDPA-approved system. You’ll be required to sign a consent form and fill out any other supporting documents before we book you in for your appointment.

Treatment with Botox is largely viewed as safe, effective, and mostly void of potentially harmful side effects. When appropriately used, the incidence of any possible complication is very low. However, some people may react to treatment in various ways which may cause a certain amount of discomfort. The most common side effects following Botox treatment include:

Pain – the injections used can sting and cause pain to the individual. We can offer you a topical anaesthetic to use at the treatment site to help alleviate any pain associated with the injection. Still, we want to reassure you that our staff is trained to the highest standards to ensure minimal discomfort.
Bruising – blood vessels may be injured during the injection process, resulting in bruising that will resolve within a couple of days.
Headaches – headaches are a common short-term side effect of Botox. When injected, botox will cause an initial muscle spasm before relaxing or “freezing” the muscles. These headaches are often mild and resolve 2-3 days after treatment.
There are some cases when treatment with Botox may not be possible. These include:

Infected treatment site – if you have an ongoing infection in the area you wish to be treated, then it is unlikely that we will be able to treat you. We advise you to wait for the infection to resolve before commencing treatment.
Pregnancy – botox is not generally recommended for cosmetic purposes in pregnant individuals. More studies are required to ascertain the safety profile of botox in pregnancy.
Only available to those aged 18 or over – botox use for cosmetic purposes is illegal in those under the age of 18. This is because your skin has not yet fully developed. If botox is required for a medical condition, then a consent form must be signed by a parent or guardian.

RECOVERY

There is usually no downtime or recovery time associated with Botox injections. You can resume normal activities immediately after treatment; however, we advise that you abstain from any strenuous activity until the day after. Any bruising or pain associated with the injection should resolve within 24-72 hours. Do not rub or massage the treatment site. This may cause the toxin to migrate, affecting your facial appearance. If you experience any side effects or reactions to Botox, then contact us as soon as possible via phone, video call, or by visiting us in the clinic so that we can treat you.
