BOTOX® Harpenden

If you’re concerned that your face is acquiring lines that make you look older than you want then you’ve probably considered Botox®.  The problem for most people is that they’ve also seen the media that shows people who’ve obviously had a treatment – and now look like dolls with immobile faces.  That’s not something you need to worry about with Botulinum Toxin (the proper medical name) treatments at Riverbanks.

Whilst the development of Botulinum Toxin is totally scientific, the application is very much an art.  Experienced practitioners know how to create a completely natural look, so nobody – except you – can guess you’ve had a treatment.  You just look fresher, younger and those wrinkles smooth out.

What can Botox® do for you?

Firstly – if you’re 50, it’s not going to make you look like a 20-year-old, but it will create a smoother skin, with far fewer wrinkles and lines.

You’ll look great for your age – and, yes, people will think you’re younger than the calendar says.  You’ll be happy to tell people your age, because the compliments will follow “Really? I’d have put you at much younger than that – you look amazing!”

It can:

  • Smooth out your forehead – and those little frown lines between your eyebrows.
  • Reduce the ‘laughter lines’ around your eyes.
  • Reduce deep lines that run from nose to mouth (the marionette lines) to soften your face.
  • Reshape your jawline if you’ve developed a square jaw from teeth grinding or clenching.

You can be confident that you’re in the hands of experts who not only have many years of experience with Botox® – but lecture and teach around the world on the use of Botulinum Toxin and techniques for creating a natural and relaxed appearance.

FAQs

Is it safe?
Yes! There are five types of Botulinum Toxin – Botox, Vistabel, Dysport, Azzalure and Bocouture available in the UK and they’re all completely safe.  We use a combination of the different brands, using the best solution for each particular patient.

How many treatments will I need?
Usually we recommend one session every four months during the first two years and then about twice a year after that.  The effects start to fade after about 3-4 months so this will keep you looking fabulous consistently.

What happens if I decide not to repeat it?
The effects will gradually fade and you will develop the same lines that you had before being treated.

Does it hurt?
There will be an initial prick as the needle breaks your skin – but we can apply a topical anaesthetic if you’re concerned about this.  Otherwise it’s a virtually painless procedure.

How much will it cost?
Prices start from £250 for one area.  The overall cost is based on how much Botulinum Toxin you need to get the results you want.

Can I have other treatments at the same time?
Yes, many patients achieve the results they want with a combination of treatments.  If you book a Harmony Consultation we’ll discuss what you want to achieve and agree which treatments will be best to get the results you want.
