Anti-wrinkle injections are an effective treatment to reduce facial lines and wrinkles
What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Injectable anti-wrinkle treatments are a quick and convenient way to smooth out those lines on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth without any need for surgery.
It’s not permanent – it usually lasts for around 4 to 6 months.
It only takes about 5 minutes to administer anti-wrinkle injections, but we spend a lot more time beforehand, undertaking a comprehensive consultation with each and every patient.
We believe this is vital in order to fully assess a patient’s skin health and understand what they want to achieve.
What to expect
The anti-wrinkle injections are injected into specific skin points to stop the nerve transmission to the corrugators, procerus and orbicularis oculi muscles of the face to relax the overlying skin.
The areas do not lose any skin sensation and the dosing is done so expression is still possible.
What areas can we treat?
Our doctors are all highly trained in advanced use of anti-wrinkle injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and creases that age the upper face in particular. Anti-wrinkle injections are very popular for the following areas:
- Frown lines and wrinkles
- Forehead lines and creases between the brows
- Eye lines / crow’s feet / laughter lines
What are the results?
We’re known for providing effective treatments that look natural and subtle – never frozen or fake. We make sure that our patients still have good facial expressions, so it’s never too obvious that they have had ‘work done’.
We have many loyal clients who have visited us regularly over the years for this repeatable wrinkle reduction treatment that keeps them looking fresh and youthful.
We’ve been offering this treatment since 2003, so you can trust our team to give sound advice and outstanding treatment.

It only takes about 5 minutes to administer BOTOX® injections, but we spend a lot more time beforehand, undertaking a comprehensive consultation with each and every patient. We believe this is vital in order to fully assess a patient’s skin health and understand what they want to achieve.
Our doctors will discuss what results are realistic and other treatment options that may be appropriate alongside or instead of BOTOX®. Our success is based on our practitioners’ fine knowledge of facial anatomy to assess your skin and the underlying muscular structure to see which treatment is the most suitable.
The understanding of the patient’s requirements together with our doctors’ appreciation of facial aesthetics that allows Cosmedics Skin Clinics to maintain a loyal and growing number of patients that all get the best service possible.
Consultation With BOTOX® Doctor
ALL our cosmetic injections consultations and treatments are by GMC-Registered doctors who have been trained to exacting standards and mentored personally by Dr Ross Perry, who personally ensures that all the other doctors use exactly the same techniques, methods and dosing regimes for the best results.
Recent publicity has highlighted that more now than ever before non-surgical cosmetic treatments like BOTOX® should be done in a medical setting by a doctor to ensure the best results. As of 23rd July 2012, the GMC prohibited prescription of cosmetic injections without a face to face consultation with a doctor. Cosmedics Skin Clinics have always ensured that all BOTOX® consultations and treatments are carried out by fully trained and experienced medical professionals.
BOTOX® is a safe procedure when performed in the correct setting and by trained medical professionals.
How does it work?
The BOTOX® (botulinum toxin) solution is injected into specific skin points to stop the nerve transmission to the corrugators, procerus and orbicularis oculi muscles of the face to relax the overlying skin.
The areas do not lose any skin sensation and the dosing is done so expression is still possible.
The full effects are seen about 3-7 days after the treatment. The natural looking smoother wrinkle free skin lasts for 4-6 months.
The Cosmedics Difference
At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, there is no need to worry about whether or not it will hurt. The procedure is not painful at all, thanks to the tiny needles – acupuncture size – that we import specially for the purpose of BOTOX® injections.
We also use unique HD LED lighting for precise visibility to enable our doctors to get consistent results with minimal pain or risk of bruising.
Wrinkle injections can be combined with other treatments in order to help create a fuller and more holistic face rejuvenation effect. These can be done at the same appointment.
Top treatments that compliment BOTOX® are:
We recommend the following as part of your aftercare
- Over use the facial muscles by frowning and smiling for the first few hours
- Apply arnica cream to any bruises. These should settle within a few days
- Makeup application over the treated area is ok after 30 minutes
Please note it takes 3-4 days for the rejuvenation effects to start to work and the full result after 7-12 days
We are more than happy to see you again for a touch up / top up if you feel it’s not quite right and the best time to do this is 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment.
The treatment effects last for 16 weeks on average and recommend you book your next appointment at least a month in advance so you can get a convenient time and you will get a reminder after 3 months which is a good time to rebook.
Cosmedics Skin Clinics is one of the UK’s leading botulinum toxin providers, with a team of highly experienced doctors based at CQC-registered clinics based in London and Bristol.
New patients are often particularly cautious about avoiding the frozen look, but we administer BOTOX® doses according to careful ‘less is more’ principles.
Free Top Up
This means that patients get a subtle result that can be topped up after 2-3 weeks free of charge to ensure they are completely happy and get used to their fresher appearance.
The treatment time is approximately 15 minutes
The recovery time is minimal. Any redness subsides in hours
The results will be visible in 3-7 days
The effects will last for 4-6 months
|Treatment||For Women||For Men|
|Nefertiti neck/jowl lift*||£150 or £100 as supplement|
|Jaw slimming*||£300 or £250 as supplement|
Prices for treatments carried out in the same appointment as the consultation will include the £50 consultation fee (note: same day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge).
Also should you want to have your treatment at your initial visit and assessment it is the same doctor who will perform your treatment as we only have doctors performing BOTOX® injections.

Your anti-wrinkle injections questions answered
Who will I see at my consultation?
Unlike other operators in the market, your consultation and assessment is with the same doctor who will carry out the treatment for the best possible high-level service.
You’ll never see an unqualified sales advisor. You’ll get a diagnosis and advice from a qualified and experienced BOTOX® practitioner.
Are the injections painful?
Patients often ask whether BOTOX® treatment will be painful. The answer is definitely NO, just a slight pin-prick as the needle goes in. Your doctor will fully explain what to expect during the treatment.
Can I come back another day?
Of course, there’s no pressure. If you’re not sure or want to time your treatment for a special event, then you’re welcome to come back whenever you’re ready.
Can I get treatment straightaway?
All clients have to have a consultation prior to treatment – even those that have been to us many times. This is best clinical practice.
Our appointment times are generous, so if you’re both in agreement you can go ahead there and then with our ‘See & Treat’ policy.
Can I have treatment while pregnant/breastfeeding?
Treatment should be stopped while patients are pregnant and while breastfeeding.
Do the wrinkles get deeper when the BOTOX® wears off?
This is a common misconception which is incorrect. Any BOTOX® treatment will actually reduce the overuse of the skin creasing and as a result leave a better result than had it never been done. In fact, repeat and ongoing treatments often mean your skin stands still in terms of aging as it is not subjected to the muscle activity which causes lines.
What are the potential side effects from anti-wrinkle injections?
The side effects – if properly administered – are extremely rare at Cosmedics Skin Clinics.
Some patients experience a small bruise at the injection site. This normally fades after a few days
5-10% of patients have headaches for the first 24 hours. These are quite easily managed with paracetamol.
The more severe side effects are commonly due to poor practice – most likely in cheap or non-medical establishments or overdosing. These can include a droopy eyebrow or eyelid and this can last a few months.
When should I start having anti-wrinkle injections?
The answer to this is really dependent on your own skin type (Fitzpatrick score 1-6 with 1 being very fair pale skin and 6 being dark afro caribbean skin type) and your lifestyle in relation to sun exposure.
Fairer patients may start in their late twenties, darker complexions in their early 30′s.
Why do I need a consultation?
Your consultation is an opportunity to fully discuss every aspect of your treatment with the doctor who would be carrying it out, in person and free of charge.
We actively encourage people to seek independent medical advice before committing themselves to treatment. Questions are always encouraged and our doctors are only happy to carry out any facial treatments once patients are fully educated about all the options.
Are there different types of botulinum toxin?
Yes, there are 2 types of botulinum toxin that are approved for use in humans – type A and type B.
Botulinum toxin A is approved for cosmetic use and botulinum toxin B is used medically for different types of muscle diseases.
The most common brand names for botulinum toxin type A are BOTOX®, Vistabel, Azzalure and Dysport.
Type B botulinum toxin brand names include Myobloc®/NeuroBloc®. These can occasionally be used if patients develop a resistance to the type A formula, which is estimated at 1 in 10,000.
How will I know what BOTOX® results will look like on me?
Please see our picture gallery for before and after BOTOX® pictures.
How do we know that BOTOX® cosmetic injections are safe?
- BOTOX® was approved by the FDA in America to be administered for glabella (frown lines) after years of rigorous drug trials. It has been used medically for over 40 years with an incredibly safe drug profile.
Its safety results are due the fact that it acts only on muscles or sweat glands and remains active locally rather than entering other areas of the body.
BOTOX® is also now used for a range of other medical conditions such as migraines, eye and bladder problems and has a proven safety record when treatments are done by experienced doctors.
How do I get rid of my other wrinkles?
BOTOX® is primarily used for the upper third of the face so finding complementary treatments for the middle and lower parts of the face is then a concern for patients who don’t want their forehead to look 10 years younger than their cheeks and jowls.
See skin-treatments overview for further information and options.
Does it matter which doctor I see?
Should the doctor who has seen you previously not be available, don’t worry. All doctors use the same methodology perfected by Dr Ross Perry.
Your detailed notes will enable our other doctors to ensure the best reproducible results.
What do botulinum toxin injections cost?
Please scroll up for the latest BOTOX® costs / prices or see skin treatment price list for more information.
What else is there if I do not want botox®?
At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, we believe in patient choice and will always accommodate this to ensure the patient gets the best cosmetic outcome that agrees with their personal wishlist.
Often some anti-ageing treatments work better in some areas than others. However Facial Fillers, chemical peels, laser or Dermaroller are just a few other options that can be used instead. We offer a host of advanced anti-ageing treatments.
What type of wrinkles is anti-wrinkle injections best for?
Botulinum toxin treatments are suitable for men and women who want to achieve fresher healthier looking skin.
The best results are achieved by injecting areas of facial lines particularly the frown, forehead and side of the eyes. The treatment still allows expressions as well as enabling people to less tired, less stressed and ultimately younger.
It can also be used in advanced treatment areas such as nose or bunny lines and to reverse sad downturned looking mouths.
What is baby BOTOX®?
This is where a lower dose of BOTOX® is given to enable more expression but still a youthful look. It is very common with some celebrities but does not last as long. As long as BOTOX® is given properly there is no need for this approach. At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, our techniques are both long-lasting and subtle.
What experience will my doctor have?
At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, treatments are carried out by fully qualified doctors who are trained and experienced in cosmetic treatments.
We always recommend patients not to opt for cheaper providers where treatments are not carried out by the appropriate professionals. We still see lots of problems from poor practice that we can’t always fix.
Will friends know I have ‘work done’?
We can achieve surprisingly natural results and patients are more likely to be told “You are looking well” rather than “You’ve had BOTOX®”.
Our specialists will adjust the dose according to both the depth of the lines or rhytids and what you and we feel will work the best for you to look younger.

ANTI AGEING TREATMENT
Botox is the best anti-ageing treatment for frown, forehead and eye wrinkles, and that is a fact! It is a worldwide success as the number one treatment shows no signs of diminishing, with over 500,000 face treatments in the UK alone.
BOTOX LONDON AND BRISTOL
Cosmedics have 5 Botox clinics in London and Bristol treating over 3000 patients a year for the last 15 years. We look after all our patients whether new and slightly anxious or those who have been coming for years with honest advice and simple precise treatments that fall within everyone’s comfort zones. Patients are listened to in the consultations and once examined we discuss whether Botox is right for you and how best to give you the result you are looking for.
The wonderful thing about Botox is that it really can be beneficial to all adult age groups, female and male and all ethnicities. The injections relax out the creases in the skin and soften the muscle expression so you not only get an instant removal of the wrinkles but a preventative ageing effect also. This result suits everyone who just wants to feel and look that bit better about themselves and stop looking sad, angry or tired for example. It mimics that self-confidence boost when you have lost weight or a glowing tan.
Most first time consultations and treatments take 20-30 minutes. However, once we get to know your skin, repeat treatments are often done in less than 15 minutes and these are typically completed after 4 months when the anti-ageing effects start to wear off. Cosmedics Botox doctors recognise the fact that people like a more natural botox result and our aim is to achieve a subtle brow lift, softer, less angry frown and wider open eyes. That is our recipe for great results.
Our signature Botox clinic is in Harley Street London. For other Botox clinics in Central London, we also have Putney, South Kensington and the City. For Botox in the UK outside of London, we have our Bristol Botox clinic in the heart of Clifton.
Botox with over 50 years of use for medical and cosmetic indications has a remarkable safety profile. Some patients wish it would last longer than 4 months but this allows the perfect length of time to rejuvenate the skin and to then adapt the next Botox injections according to how your face ages (or does not). It also wears off completely which gives people that peace of mind.
Cosmedics Botox prices for London start from £250 for one area which is commonly either the frown, forehead or under eye wrinkles. The cost for 2 areas of Botox is £330-350 and 3 areas of Botox is £380-395 with the higher price for men who require greater strength due to their muscles often being more resilient to Botox.
