Botox is available at Harpenden Skin Clinic in Hertfordshire as a type of anti-wrinkle injection.
A vastly popular treatment for reducing lines and signs of aging, Botox is a favourite for a number of valid reasons. It is a non-invasive procedure, quick to administer, requires no recovery time and can be performed with minimal risk.
Well administered Botox will increase definition in the face and leave you looking naturally youthful.

Botox is named after the Botulinum Toxin that is injected in the procedure. This is a substance that blocks nerve signals to muscles.
As we age, the creases in the face caused by movement become more prominent. Laughter lines, for example, grow more defined the more we smile over the years.
Botox works to reduce lines by suppressing muscle contraction. This reduces movement in the face and consequently avoids the formation of wrinkles.
With Botox, you can smile freely, without worrying about creases.
Botox has a bad reputation for making the face look ‘frozen’, yet with skilful application, this can be avoided. At Harpenden, we pride ourselves on our ability to produce natural-looking results.
Botox is effective in the treatment of the following conditions:
The first stage in the process is to book a consultation with one of our Harpenden aesthetic beauty professionals. We can advise you on which treatments are best suited to get the results you desire. This will also be a chance for you to get to know us better and raise any concerns you may have.
It is common that a combination of Botox, skin peels and dermal fillers will be needed to address all signs of aging.
When you are satisfied with the proposed course of action, you can book a time for your procedure at our Hertfordshire clinic. The Botox procedure will last between 15 to 30 minutes, making it is easy to fit around daily life.
Botox is administered via small, localised injections. You will be offered the option of an anaesthetic to dull any potential pain, but the procedure involves minimal risk.
You will be free to leave immediately afterwards.
For lines and wrinkles, results can be seen to take full effect after two weeks and last between 3-6 months. For Bruxism, the masseter muscle will soften within the first week. Jaw reduction begins to be visible after 6-8 weeks and remains so for 6-12 months.
After your treatment, you will be given detailed instructions on aftercare. You will also be invited to attend a follow-up appointment to track your recovery.
It is normal for there to be slight discomfort for a few days. You may see bruising or swelling at the injection site, but this should go away within 48 hours.
Due to the nerve-inhibiting qualities of the Botulinum Toxin, treatment for Bruxism or jaw reshaping may cause some difficulty chewing, swallowing or articulating. Don’t worry, this is temporary and will soon subside!
In the unlikely event that these symptoms do not subside or become more severe please contact us or your GP.
