Botox and Dysport work by relaxing the facial muscles responsible for wrinkles and are the most performed non-surgical procedures in the world. Botox and Dysport treatments are an easy, pain-free process and a great solution for reducing the appearance of wrinkles around the face, primarily in the brow, eye and cheek areas.

Our same day procedure involves only a few painless injections that will allow you to return to your normal daily routine immediately without the need for a lengthy recovery period. The treated lines on your face will begin to soften over a three to five day period following the procedure and their appearance will further improve over the next two weeks. Your new, fresher appearance and feel will stay with you from up to three to six months, at which point treatment is easily repeated. Our patients say we provide the best wrinkle reduction treatment available in London.

An alternative area of application for Botox and Dysport injections is under the arms where it is a proven method of preventing excessive perspiration for up to six months at a time.

Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA)  and Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) are both compounds of botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin produced by the Clostridium botulinum.


Botox was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles and frown lines in 2002; Dysport was approved for the same use in 2009.


As injectable treatments for wrinkles and frown lines, Botox and Dysport work similarly: they contain very small doses of botulinum toxin, which inhibits the stimulation of nerves, with the effect of relaxing the muscles that cause facial wrinkles.


Dysport spreads a bit farther from the injection point than Botox. This is an advantage, as fewer injections are required in large areas (such as the forehead), with less potential discomfort for the patient. On the other hand, with Dysport it is even more important that the injection is performed by an experienced and skilled professional, able to prevent it from spreading into nearby areas, causing unwanted side effects such as eyelid/eyebrow drooping.


In the treatment of lateral orbital rhytids (commonly known as “crow’s feet”), Dysport is believed to produce better results than Botox on patients’ appearance when facial muscles are contracted; however, the difference is hardly noticeable when facial muscles are at rest.

Botox – or Botulinum Toxin – is a neurotoxin produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium. It inhibits nerve stimulation on muscles and is used cosmetically to reduce or remove facial wrinkles. Botox injections contain a very small dose of Botulinum Toxin and relax the muscles that form the wrinkles. The effect of a Botox injection lasts approximately between 3 to 6 months.

Dermal Fillers are a wide range of injectable products, used cosmetically to soften facial wrinkles, lines and other skin imperfections and enhance facial volume.

There are many different types of fillers, each has its own specificities and tends to work better on certain areas and not in others. Some dermal fillers last longer than others.

Botulinum Toxin, also known as Botox, is a neurotoxin that is produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium.

Botox can be used for medical purposes – such as to treat some muscular conditions – and cosmetically. As a cosmetic treatment, Botox is commonly known as a reliable and effective way to reduce or remove wrinkles non-surgically.

Botox treatments are generally pain free and pose no threat of long recovery time, allowing patients to return immediately to their normal daily routines.

Cosmetic Botox treatments are performed by injecting the toxin in extremely small doses to the desired area relaxing the muscles that are responsible for wrinkles.

Botox injections are fairly quick and the effect is visibly noticeable after around 24 – 72 hours once the treatment complete.

The main active ingredient of Botox Cosmetic injections is botulinum toxin type A, a toxin produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium.

More specifically, Botox Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) for injection contains sterile, vacuum-dried purified botulinum toxin type A.

In Botox Cosmetic injections, botulinum toxin is present in extremely small doses and has the beneficial effect of relaxing facial muscles preventing the development of wrinkles and frown lines.

Botulinum Toxin, commonly known as Botox, has many benefits both medically and cosmetically.

Medically, Botox is used to treat conditions such as chronic migraines, overactive bladder and strabismus (crossed eyes).

While Botox is used for medical purposes, it is most known for its cosmetic results. Botox is primarily used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, in particular around the brow, eye and cheeks. Botox can also be used to reduce sweating.

Being non-surgical a procedure, one of the main benefits of Botox is that, once treatment is complete, there is a very short recovery time allowing the patient to resume normal activities the same day.

By reducing and preventing the development of wrinkles, Botox helps the skin to look younger and smoother. Botox is one of the safest not surgical procedures to reduce wrinkles.

Botox injections are the most performed non-surgical procedure in the world and a very safe, hassle free treatment.

Potential side effects of the cosmetic use of Botox – although uncommon – may include headaches, drooping eyelids, blurred vision, dizziness and dried mouth. For a full description on the risks and side effects of Botox, we encourage getting in touch for a free consultation with one of our specialists.

Who should not have Botox?

  • Pregnant or breast feeding women (this is due to the fact it is unknown whether Botox affects breast milk).
  • Patients who are allergic to any of the ingredients of Botox or have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc or Dysport.
  • Patients who have an infection around the area where the injection is planned.

Botox Cosmetic injections contain botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium. This toxin, present in extremely small doses, inhibits the nerve stimulation of muscles by preventing nerves from releasing a chemical called acetylcholine.

In their cosmetic use, Botox injections have the beneficial effect of relaxing facial muscles improving the appearance of frown lines and preventing the development of wrinkles.

Typical areas for the cosmetic application of Botox injections are eyebrows and cheeks.

We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.
