Botox® injections are a very effective treatment to reduce lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines and face. They are our most popular treatment at Face Clinic London.
All our Botox® injections are given by fully qualified and experienced cosmetic doctors, who specialise in tailoring the strength your treatments to your individual needs. This means if wanted, you can retain some expression of the facial muscles, giving a more natural and subtle look with so called “Baby Botox®”.
The treatment itself takes around 15 minutes to complete and after the treatment you can drive or head back to work immediately, no recovery period is needed. It is an extremely safe procedure.
We offer a free follow up with a doctor two weeks after every Botox® treatment to ensure that the treatment meets your expectations, If necessary a free top up of Botox® can be given at this appointment.
The following are commonly treated areas with Botox®:
The chin (mentalis)
The chin can be treated to give a less bulky and dimpled appearance which tends to occur as we age.
Frown lines can be seen as vertical lines in between the eyebrows and are common in people who frown a lot or have been overexposed to the sun. Small injections are licensed to treat these lines, in between and along the brow.
Forehead wrinkles appear as horizontal lines on the forehead which are more prominent when you raise your eyebrows. To treat these, small injections are given on the forehead
Crow’s feet are found in the outer corner of the eyes. They appear more prominent when smiling or laughing. They occur as the skin becomes less elastic with age, combined with excessive sun exposure. Small injections at either side of the eyes are licensed to treat crow’s feet wrinkles.
Smoker’s lines appear around the mouth above the top lip. They can occur in non smokers, but can appear more prominent in smokers. Injections placed around above the top lip are all that is needed to reduce their appearance.
Botox® can be injected into the corners of the mouth alleviating the sad appearance that can occur with ageing.
Bunny lines are wrinkles at the top of the nose which can appear when squinting or frowning and can be successfully treated with Botox® injections.
Brow Lift with Botox®
Botox® can also be used to achieve an eyebrow raise or “Chemical Brow Lift”. Carefully placed injections around the brow can raise the eyebrows by about 3 millimeters. This can open up the eyes and in women give a more youthful appearance.
Masseter (cheek) Botox®
Large cheek muscles can give rise to a square or bulky looking jaw. In some people, treating the masseter muscle with botox® will soften the jaw line. It can also be helpful for people who grind their teeth.

Guide to Botox® Treatments
Botox® treatment is simple quick and safe, however if you have not had treatment before, understandably you can feel a little nervous the first time. The following is a guide to what to expect when booking an appointment for Botox® treatment at Face Clinic London.
When you Arrive
When you arrive at Face Clinic London you will be greeted by our reception staff who will ask you to complete a medical history sheet. This is to ensure that the doctor is made aware of any medical conditions which could rule out Botox® treatment. Most people who have treatment are fit and well and are able to have the treatment. If you are pregnant or breast feeding the treatment is not recommended.
A history of Stroke or chronic diseases affecting the muscles such as Myasthenia Gravis, Eaton Lambert syndrome and Bell ’s palsy would rule out the treatment, as well as a history of allergy to Botox®.
Consultation with Doctor
At your initial consultation*, the doctor will discuss your expectations for the treatment and try understand what results you are hoping to achieve. The doctor will make a medical assessment and explain how the treatment would help you and discuss the potential side effects. Generally Botox® works well for lines and wrinkles in the upper face caused by facial expressions and muscle over activity such as in frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Consent and Photography
If you are happy to proceed with the treatment, Botox® treatment can usually be given during the initial consultation*. You will be asked to sign a consent form to indicate that you have understood the outcome of the treatment. Photographs are usually taken before the treatment as a medical record and after the treatment to allow the doctor to judge how successful the treatment has been. Photographs like all medical records and kept safely and securely by Face Clinic London and are only viewable by our medical staff.
Before the treatment is given the skin will be cleaned with antiseptic. The treatment itself is very quick and takes about ten minutes. It is relatively painless as the needles used for Botox® are very small, and most people do not require any pain relief during the procedure. You will be able to resume your normal activities such as work as soon as treatment is finished. You should however remember to avoid alcohol, facial massages and extreme changes in temperature such as steam rooms and sauna’s for 24 hours after the procedure. The whole consultation time is around 30 minutes.
Follow Up Appointment
The effects of Botox® will start to be visible about 4 to 7 days after the injections and the effects will last for about three months. Before you leave you should book a free follow up appointment with the doctor two weeks after the treatment. This is so the doctor can check that you are happy with the results and that the treatment has worked as you expected. If necessary, free Botox® top up treatment can also be given at this follow up appointment.
