As we age, our skin is unable to cope with facial movements as easily as it used to. When we are young we are able to frown and the furrow will disappear but, as we age, the elasticity reduces, thereby leaving you with a more permanent scar or wrinkles. If you are not happy with this ageing process, a series of small injections of BOTOX® or Azzalure® can help soften away those ageing scars. The process does not need to leave you with a frozen face. When done sympathetically, by a qualified clinician you can lose the lines but still have a natural appearance. Drs Himesh Panchal, Karnika Desai and Tom Donnelly are not advocates of using too much and over exaggerating your features but work with you to get a lovely natural result. Rarely do people comment on what have you had done but you are told that you look really well – lovely.
Visibly fast results
Your facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask like, the overall result is very natural. The effect of treatment generally lasts for about 3-4 months. Re-treatment is then required. The initial effects of treatment become visible within 48 – 74 hours. The maximum effect is reached in about 2-3 weeks.

What does it involve?
At your initial consultation, prior to your treatment, you will meet with Dr Desai who will answer your questions and assess your suitability to proceed and agree the areas you want treated. She may recommend dermal fillers for deeper lines and wrinkles. You will then be booked in for your treatment at a time convenient to you.
The treatment, administered by Dr Desai, is injected directly into the wrinkles which results in temporarily relaxing the facial muscles and preventing the formation of wrinkles, whilst existing lines are softened. Because a very fine needle is used, most patients find that there is only mild and temporary discomfort. The entire procedure usually takes no longer than 15 minutes and during this time Dr Desai will discuss with you the results which you can expect to see and advise repeat treatments that will be suitable for you.
