Where do I start with anti-wrinkle injections?
If you have never had anti-wrinkle injections before, then you may not know what “Botox” is. This widely known term is short for Botulinum toxin. Botox is a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax, smoothing out wrinkles.
What is Botox?
Botox is the UK’s most popular cosmetic treatment for the removal of wrinkles and it is also fairly quick to complete. Procedure time usually takes around 30 minutes, which means it can even be completed before or during the working day. There are very little side effects with this treatment, which means that patients can return back to work almost immediately. The sensitivity of the face will last usually an hour.
How Long Does Botox Treatment Last?
The duration of results lasts for around 3 – 4 months. We advise all of our patients that during the first year of Botox treatment, you may need to have the treatment done approximately 3 times.
After the first year of Botox treatments, it is suggested that you have Botox applied only twice per year, this allows muscle recovery time. If you are continually having the treatment, it may only need to be applied once a year. Botox kicks in immediately, one of the main benefits of having the cosmetic procedure completed.
Who is suitable for anti-wrinkle injections?
Botox and anti-wrinkle injections are suitable for patients that wish to reduce the appearance of forehead lines, frown lines or wrinkles around their eyes. We are often asked where anti-wrinkle injections should be applied to reduce the signs of ageing, this is different for every patient, however, the most popular places are:
- The forehead/brow
- Between the eyes
- Sides of the eyes
What will the treatment involve?
Botox is one of the quickest cosmetic treatments available at The Berkeley Clinic. The treatment will involve a doctor making a series of small injections into the muscles of your face. The injection process itself will only take few minutes.
Do Botox Injections hurt?
This is a non-surgical treatment, therefore, the procedure is largely pain-free. If you are uncomfortable with needles, then there you may feel mild discomfort which is experienced due to the small needle injection involved.
Is Botox Safe?
Botulinum toxin has been used for many years. Botox was first used four decades ago, however, the treatment has changed over the years. To this day, Doctors not only use Botox for cosmetic patients, they also use it relax muscles and sweat glands.
Botox is safe when it is completed by a trained medical practitioner. Medical practitioners must have the appropriate training to complete this non-surgical treatment, the risks are extremely minimal.

What happens after Botox treatment?
Any Botox clinic in Glasgow will advise you to can carry on with your day as normal. The only cautious advice that a medical practitioner is to avoid strenuous activity, saunas and other facial treatments for up to 24 hours. The results from Botox can be seen almost immediately and after 4-10 days of having Botox applied you will notice an improvement in your lines and wrinkles.
What are the possible side effects?
If you are worried about the side effects of Botox, then you should always visit a professional medical Botox clinic. Some of the side effects which are associated with Botox are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.
Who Should Not Use Botox?
If you are considering having Botox completed, then you should always book in for a consultation with a member of The Berkeley Clinic Team. There is a selection of people who are advised not to have this type of treatment completed:
- The injection site is infected
- You are allergic to any of the ingredients
- You are pregnant or breastfeeding
- You have a neuromuscular disorder (e.g. myasthenia gravis)
If you are still unsure if you are suited for Botox treatment then a full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at face to face consultation. We can also discuss this over the phone with you.
