All botulinum toxins are prescription only medicines (POM) and can only be prescribed by doctors, dentists and nurse prescribers, this medication can only be prescribed to patients when attending an in-person consultation with one of these medical professionals.

Does it Hurt?
A very fine needle is used and generally this treatment is not described by most as painful and can be well tolerated with no anaesthetic. Please request an anaesthetic cream or ice, if you are nervous about needles.
You will be advised to keep the target muscles active for a few hours and to avoid extremes of heat or cold, vigorous exercise, lying down or leaning over for 4-6 hours.
Should you experience any unexpected side effects or any that concern you, please contact the clinic.
How long will it last?
These treatments are not permanent, and the muscles will often start to soften again between 8- 12 weeks. Results tend to last 3-4 months. Frequent treatment at intervals of less than 3 months is not recommended. Repeating treatment when movement recovers will deliver optimum results over time. Frequency of treatments may be reduced according to the quality of your skin and your response to treatment. Should you choose not to maintain the results and not have further treatment, your muscles and skin will return to their pre-treatment state.
Why would someone have the treatment?
Line and wrinkle smoothing treatments improve your appearance, reducing the effects of aging on the skin. This treatment can boost self-confidence and mood, whilst maintaining and improving your health and well-being.
