Are you looking to soften or even eliminate emerging lines or wrinkles? Anti-Wrinkle injections (known best as Botox) help to prevent the signs of ageing that show due to the contraction of muscles in the face.
At our aesthetic clinic near Harley Street, London, Dr Owen Thomas specialises in enhancing facial aesthetics including with reducing lines and wrinkles. While individual treatment plans may differ, Botox injections containing Botulinum Toxin Type A are a preferred choice.
Botox, also known informally as Baby Botox, is not only a treatment method but also a specific product brand of Botulinum Toxin type A used alongside other brands in our clinic, such as Azzalure and Bocouture.
While Botox is a popular option for addressing lines and wrinkles, it’s not the sole treatment available. Our clinic offers various alternatives, details of which can be accessed through our website.
Dr Owen is a highly-educated clinician with a Level-7 (Masters equivalent) in Injectable aesthetic treatments, and over 20 years experience as a medical professional. Each patient that enters the clinic is given a full medical history assessment to ensure a personalised treatment plan can be curated.
Dr Thomas takes a full history and examines muscle movement. The area is precisely marked and this can be reproduced in future treatments to maintain consistency. He takes considerably longer around this preparation than most clinics as precision with Botox is essential for any treatment.
A Swiss-made robot pen called Juvapen is used for extra accuracy and reduces the need for top ups. Adjustments are always made to ensure that each treatment is right for each client. Anti-wrinkle injections can even be tailored with dermal fillers in a combined approach to provide a bespoke service.
Comprehensive aftercare information is provided for all our injectable treatments, ensuring you achieve the best possible results from Botox.
We only offer prescription-based medicine, and will never use cheap products for any of our treatments. All of the products that we use for treatments are pharmacy-supplied, and will be discussed in a detailed consultation prior to any treatment taking place.
Wrinkles form over the years as the muscles in your face contract and expand when you laugh, smile, talk, or express any other emotion. With time, the wrinkles that form with facial movements become static, and the grooves become deeper.
Anti-wrinkle injections/Botox in London can slow or even prevent the development of these grooves, giving you the opportunity to challenge your own ageing process.
Patients usually only experience very mild side effects (if any) following injections, such as a transient headache for a small number of people or sometimes mild bruising. Directly after the treatment, there are often small lumps that fade after ten minutes or so.
Read more about possible side effects in our recent blog.
There are a number of areas that are frequently requested for treatment by our clients such as:
The anti-wrinkle injections we use have been approved by many regulatory bodies including the FDA, and have been studied in trials for many years. The likelihood of any serious complications arising following treatment is very low.
There are some patients that are unsuitable for anti-wrinkle injections such as those that are pregnant or breastfeeding, or myasthenia gravis. Any conditions like these will be assessed by Dr Owen in the medical consultation prior to any treatment being performed.
Normally, results will start to show after 3-4 days, however it could take around 10-14 days for the maximum effect of the treatment to show.
As a guide, anti-wrinkle injections tend to last for around 3-4 months, but this figure will vary for each person. Periodic maintenance every 3-6 months will sustain the effect for longer.
Sessions with Dr. Thomas typically last 20-30 minutes, making it a convenient option for those with a busy schedule. This gives enough time for the precise marking and use of the robot Juvapen which is more comfortable and much more accurate than humans!
Dr. Thomas may recommend combining Botox with other treatments for enhanced results. A personalized plan will be developed during your consultation.
Dr. Thomas recommends avoiding alcohol and blood-thinning medications before the procedure. A detailed pre-treatment plan will be provided during your consultation.
Success is seen in the smoothness and improved appearance of the treated area with preserved brow position and symmetry. Dr. Thomas offers follow-up consultations to assess and ensure satisfaction with the results.
Had Botox – now feeling like I belong in the land of the living not the living dead !!! Had every trust in Owen who made my treatment very comfortable.
Dr Owen was amazing. Great care and time taken to explain everything and decide which is best for you.
I had the forever young package and my skin has a lovely glow and the botox has really worked well already whilst not being unnatural. Highly recommend and will be returning for all my tweaks 🙂
