Botulinum Toxin (BTX) works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the facial muscles that have been injected. This makes the muscles less active and therefore softens and smoothes the appearance of persistent lines and wrinkles.
In most cases patients can see a real difference after one treatment. This is because Botulinum Toxin (BTX) works gradually, smoothing and softening lines and wrinkles for up to 4 months. Every face is unique of course and we’ll advise you on how many treatments you’re likely to need and how often, depending on the results you’d like to achieve.
The effects of Botulinum Toxin (BTX) often last up to four months, depending on the patient. If you decide to stop treatment, any permanent lines and wrinkles will gradually return.
It’s very rare for treatment with Botulinum Toxin (BTX) to be painful. Most patients experience a feeling of slight discomfort if at all during the treatment itself but that's all. Rest assured we will talk you through what to expect before your first injection, so you'll be fully prepared prior to treatment.
With BTX injections at worst you will have a little redness which will subside after a few hours.
The cost varies depending on the number of areas treated and the materials used.
1 area £200

3 areas £300
Fillers £250 - £300 per area.
Amir will discuss the best options for you and confirm the cost before treatment commences.
