Botox ™ Cardiff, Newport, Swansea & Bristol

The ageing process causes the slow down of Collagen and elastin production in the skin so that as we get older these areas of over use become damaged and the lines become permanent. By reducing movement of muscles in these areas, the skin stops being creased and is allowed to recover causing the lines to soften or even fade away.

Botulinum Type A has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use and has been used for over 30 years without any known long term problems. However, it is important to understand that Botox is a Prescription Only Medicine (POM) and we advise that it should only be administered following a consultation with a trained medical professional, who also can advise you of any potential alternatives if clinically indicated.

Does it hurt?

Most people only experience a mild temporary discomfort. There is a slight redness immediately after which settles within a few hours and application of ice helps and is easily covered with make-up. Within 4 hours of the treatment people are advised not to do vigorous exercise, drink excessive alcohol or lie down flat. Otherwise life can carry on as normal.

Botox Treatments For Men

The comfort and convenience of our treatments have also made it a popular cosmetic option for men. The procedure generally only takes a few minutes, which allows patients to schedule appointments during their lunch hour. In addition, the injections cause only minor discomfort; the sensation is often compared to the sting of an ant bite and usually lasts only a few seconds. There is virtually no recovery period after our treatments, and most men are able to return to their normal routine immediately. Because our treatments involve no surgery, it is one of the safest and most effective cosmetic treatments available for facial rejuvenation.

Our treatments for men & women work where many early facial lines, wrinkles, and creases tend to appear, such as around the eyes and on the forehead. After being injected the muscles responsible for crow's feet and other facial lines begin to relax. Frown lines, which can make a man look angry or upset regardless of how he feels, can also be minimized or eliminated with our range of treatments.
