What is Botulinum Toxin?

Botulinum Toxin is a naturally occurring protein and is a prescription-only medicine that must be administered by a medical practitioner. There are several brands on the market, such as Botox Cosmetic™, Vistabel™ and Xeomin™. At Springwell Clinic, our nurses are fully trained and extensively experienced in administering Botulinum Toxin.

What areas can be treated?

Treatments are suitable for removing and softening lines, such as the frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and crows feet, as well as softening the lines around the mouth (lipstick lines) and lifting the corners of the mouth. It is also used to soften the ‘pebbly’ effect on the chin, to enhance your jaw line and to smooth neck lines, and it can be used to reduce underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis).

Am I suitable for treatment?

If you have lines and wrinkles that remain when your face is relaxed then you could benefit from this treatment. These lines usually start to occur in our late twenties in both men and women, and can affect self-esteem and confidence so smoothing them away to give a more youthful appearance can be hugely beneficial. You cannot have Botulinum Toxin treatments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have any allergies to it, are taking certain antibiotics, or if you suffer from severe neuromuscular disorders.

Are there any side effects?

Botulinum Toxin has been used safely for over 20 years to treat facial lines and wrinkles. There are no reported long-term side effects from it although it is not uncommon for a little temporary bruising to occur.

I have been going to Stephanie Green for both Fillers and Botox for the past ten years and can not begin to express how professional and competent she is. Since I have been going to her I have seen huge improvements in my skin. I had some acne scarring from when I was a teenager and with fillers she has helped to smooth this over and the wrinkles around my lips and eyes have been considerably reduced. I love getting my botox™ topped up, as within a matter of days I can see a dramatic improvement around my eyes and my forehead is now so much smoother.
