One of the most effective ways to improve your appearance and look younger is to smooth out those lines and wrinkles.

But did you know, botulinum toxin could also be used to prevent those lines from ever forming? We will carry out a face-to-face assessment and consultation and discuss with you the treatment that would best suit you to achieve the results you’ve always wanted.


What is Botulinum Toxin (BTX)?

Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. In a purified form, BTX is a very safe, effective treatment used not only for cosmetic purposes to reduce wrinkles but also to treat a number of medical conditions, for example, migraines and excessive sweating.

What can be treated?

Botulinum toxin is most commonly used to treat frown lines, the lines across the forehead and crow’s feet. It can be used to help treat asymmetry and provide a ‘brow lift’.

How does it work?

The toxin blocks the transition of chemical messages from the nerve to the muscle so that the muscle stays in a resting state for a period of 12-18 weeks on average.

The amount of reduction of the movement will depend on how much toxin is administered and the location of the product placement. It can vary from allowing some movement or a full block, which will inhibit most of the muscular movement in the area. The consultation will determine whether your expectations can be met and thus the treatment will be tailored to suit your needs.

Does it hurt?

The treatment is usually tolerated very well and not often described as painful. A very fine needle is used; however, a topical anaesthetic cream can be used to take the edge off if you are nervous about needles.

How quickly will I notice the results?

The toxin works gradually and the full effects will be seen typically between 10 days and 2 weeks.

How many treatments will I need?

The effects of Botulinum Toxin often last up to four months but do depend on the patient. Regular treatment is needed in order to maintain the results and if you do decide to stop treatment, permanent lines and wrinkles will return.

This is an excellent dental practice that I've been recommending to my coworkers for awhile. The staff is friendly and professional. The sisters who run the practice are thorough not just with the examinations and cleaning, but also make sure to give me personalized and practical advice for at-home care. They make it as pleasant as a trip to the...

I enquired about a chipped tooth issue and was seen within 24 hours of making the enquiry. Treatment options were clearly explained and discussed, in what is a very professional setting just off Shad Thames. I appreciate the fact that costs were also discussed before making the appointment, which meant that there were no surprises on the day. Overall, very...

After years of not going to the dentist, I was dreading my visit. Very welcoming practice. Dr Li kept me informed of my treatment plan and explained clearly what was needed and why. Very reassuring and professional. I've never had to wait for my appointments as well, which is very appreciated on a tight schedule.

I visited Londent and had an initial consultation with Dr Panayiotis Kaimakamis (Periodontist). What an absolute dream he was from start to finish. I was quite anxious regarding some rather complex periodontal surgery I needed ASAP and his customer care, subject matter expertise and surgical skills in my humble opinion remain unmatched. I recommend both this clinic and Dr Pano...
