Lines and Wrinkles London

Much is known about the benefits of Botulinum Toxin Type A injections (commonly known as BOTOX®) and many of our patients swear by it without the knowledge of their friends or family – because when given properly, it looks very natural.

However, there are critically important things to note about this highly effective treatment: firstly, that you should only have botox administered by a skilled, reputable medical person with a proven track record for safety; secondly, that that person should be experienced in working with individuals to achieve a look that is completely natural-looking.


Rest assured, Riverbanks can confidently tick both boxes.

Botox is the most effective treatment for smoothing out dynamic facial wrinkles (the ones that appear when you smile, frown or laugh), for example on the forehead, around the eyes or between your eyebrows. One session temporarily relaxes muscle contractions to give you a fresher, brighter, more relaxed appearance. Wrinkles become smoother and often even disappear altogether. Most people require 1 session every 4 months in the first 2 years, then every 5-6 months thereafter. Consider these treatments as part of your skin care maintenance.

Treatment FAQS

Is it safe?

Yes. Btx-A is one of the most researched drugs in medicine, with thousands of papers published from across the world. Recent media stories have often been grossly misinterpreted by non-medical journalists purely in a bid to sell more copies of their publication. or sell more advertising space on TV. Btx-A is used safely in young children and adults in all national health systems worldwide. The cosmetic use of botox is entirely safe.

What types of Botulinum Toxin are there?

There are 5 brands (Botox, Vistabel, Dysport, Azzalure & Bocouture) available in the UK, all of which are entirely safe, reliable and effective. At Riverbanks we use a combination of the different brands, drawing on the best qualities of each, in order to provide you with a personalised treatment with natural, lasting results.

Will I look worse if I stop having Botox?

Not at all. You will just return to your pre-treatment condition.

How long does it last?

Typically, the effects last for 3-4 months, after which re-treatment is usually required. For most natural and rejuvenating results we recommend at least 3 treatments a year for the first couple of years.

How much will it cost?

Prices start from £220 for the first area. Our prices are based upon exactly how much botox you need to achieve the desired results so individual prices vary.

Am I in safe hands?

Our doctors perform thousands of botox procedures each year and treat many well-known celebrities. All of our patients, including the celebrities, maintain a NATURAL look, and their friends generally comment on how well they look. You can be sure you will be in expert and safe hands. If you are looking for a super shiny and frozen look then we are not the practice for you.
