Botox injections at the Harpenden Skin Clinic, local to St. Albans and Radlett

Botox represents a highly effective, safe and non-surgical anti ageing treatment. Botox injections help to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, by temporarily blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes fine lines and wrinkles to relax and soften, preventing creasing from occurring when we smile, frown or laugh. It is most often used to treat lines on the forehead, crow’s feet and frown lines.

We tend to focus on the five most commonly affected facial areas, including the forehead, glabella (lines in between the eyebrows), crow’s feet (lines around the eyes) marionette lines (extending from the outer corners of the lower lip, downwards), and bunny lines (wrinkles at the top of the nose).

Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of the Botox wrinkle reduction treatment?

Botox is a very popular wrinkle treatment, capable of dramatically softening fine lines and wrinkles. Wrinkle-relaxing injections are an excellent anti-ageing treatment, as they temporarily restrict the movement of muscles under the skin to deliver a smoother, younger  looking face. At Harpenden Skin Clinic, we specialise in the ‘less is more’ natural look, using Botox injections to achieve subtle but stunning results.

The use of Botox injections offers a safe, temporary solution to the treatment of fine lines and facial wrinkles. This treatment presents a very low risk of complications and it’s effects are fully reversible over time.

What type of Botox product is used for wrinkle reduction?

We use a variety of Botulinum toxins (generally Botox and Azzalure), as each one offers it’s own subtle difference. This is because each product differs slightly and can be more or less beneficial, depending on the nature of its application.

What happens during the Botox wrinkle treatment?

The area to be treated is highlighted on your skin before an extremely fine micro-needle is used to administer the Botox. The procedure only takes about 10-to-15 minutes, and most people liken the sensation to having a hair plucked.

A full consultation along with pre-wrinkle treatment photographs are always taken. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your Botox treatment.

What will I look like immediately after the Botox treatment?

We will apply mineral make-up to the treated area before you leave. Your skin may be slightly red immediately after the procedure and, in some circumstances, slight bruising may occur, but can be covered with make-up.

What should I do/not do after Botox and wrinkle reduction treatment?

You will be given full post Botox treatment instructions, to follow. It is especially important that for four-to-six hours after treatment, you do not rub or massage the area, you don’t lie flat, you avoid strenuous exercise, hot baths, showers or saunas, and alcohol.

When will I see the results of Botox treatment on my wrinkles?

Results may be noticeable within days, but it may takes up to two weeks for the full effects to be seen.

How long does the Botox wrinkle treatment last for?

The effects of wrinkle reduction, via Botox fillers, can vary from person to person, but generally last around four months.
