OVERVIEW

What is botulinum toxin?

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that blocks nerve impulses, allowing the muscles that cause wrinkles to relax. There are several brands of botulinum toxin available, the most famous of which is Botox. At Riverbanks, we prefer to use Azzalure, the fastest-acting, longest-lasting and most natural-looking of them all.

OVERVIEW

What are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers?

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers attract water from surrounding tissues and act like a sponge, filling out lines and creases in the skin similar to the way collagen does. They restore lost volume rather than give you volume you never had. We only use non-permanent dermal filler brands because we are not convinced by the safety credentials of permanent ones. At Riverbanks, your safety is our primary concern.

OVERVIEW

Benefits

Why aesthetics should be ‘invisible’

An intrinsic benefit of our dermal fillers and botulinum toxin injections is that they deliver on our Invisible Aesthetics promise. Invisible Aesthetics is an approach to cosmetic beauty invented by Riverbanks founder Dr Ravi Jain in response to the shock-factor sometimes elicited by widely publicised cosmetic enhancements. Invisible Aesthetics is about turning back the clock without anyone noticing. Dr Jain believes that no one should be able to guess that you’ve had any aesthetic work, only that you look healthier. Invisible Aesthetics promotes gradual enhancements over drastic transformations and every one of the 200 facial procedures we carry out each week embodies this standard.

Benefits

Benefits

Short and sweet

Our botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid injections are surprisingly painless and only take about 15 minutes, after which you’ll be able to return to your usual daily activities straight away. Your consultation and treatment will always be conducted by an experienced doctor. Our botulinum toxin treatments are longer-lasting and more natural-
looking than Botox, while our hyaluronic acid treatments lead to less bruising and swelling than other dermal fillers. Just one session will make you look brighter and fresher.

Benefits

Process

Part of your regular skin care routine

Your doctor will create a treatment programme that is specially tailored to your needs. Injections can be administered in different places on the face and décolletage. With botulinum toxin, we find that most people need 1 session every 4 months in the first couple of years, then every 6 months or so after that. We always encourage patients to think of the treatment as part of their regular skin care routine—which they have no trouble doing because the process is so quick and convenient. With hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, a single treatment can last up to 12 months.

Treatment areas

Botox & Fillers can be used to treat:

  • Condition

    Migraines

    Botulinum toxin is a recommended treatment for chronic migraines. These are defined as headaches on at least 15 days of every month, at least 8 of which have migrainous features such as nausea or sensitivity to light.

    Botulinum toxin is a recommended treatment for chronic migraines. These are defined as headaches on at least 15 days of every month, at least 8 of which have migrainous features such as nausea or sensitivity to light.

    Botulinum toxin reduces the symptoms of migraines by blocking the nerves, called C-fibres, that carry pain from the head to the brain. It has shown to be effective at converting migraines from chronic to episodic, improving quality of life.

    Around 1 in 4 patients see improvement after the first or second set of injections and around 50% get a good response after more than 2 sets.

  • Condition

    Excessive sweating

    Botulinum toxin is an effective treatment for focal hyperhidrosis, a condition where a person sweats excessively in a specific area of the body, e.g. the underarms or feet.

    Botulinum toxin is an effective treatment for focal hyperhidrosis, a condition where a person sweats excessively in a specific area of the body, e.g. the underarms or feet.

    The injections work by blocking the nerves responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from over-firing and producing too much sweat. Retreatment is typically needed after 4 to 6 months because the nerves regenerate. Over time, many patients can go longer between treatments.

    As a targeted treatment for a small, localised area, there is no effect on sweating elsewhere, or sweating across large areas of the body.

  • Condition

    Teeth grinding

    Unconscious or involuntary jaw clenching and teeth grinding, whether a person is awake or asleep, can lead to physical pain such as headaches and earaches. It can also cause severe dental problems.

    Unconscious or involuntary jaw clenching and teeth grinding, whether a person is awake or asleep, can lead to physical pain such as headaches and earaches. It can also cause severe dental problems.

    Injecting small doses of botulinum toxin directly into the muscle that moves the jaw can cause it to weaken enough to stop involuntary clenching and grinding of the teeth.

    Although botulinum toxin injections are not a cure for bruxism, the medical term for teeth grinding, they can reduce the symptoms better than a nightguard for some patients. The effects normally last 3 to 4 months.

After turning 40, I just didn't feel great. I had a consultation with the team at Riverbanks and I asked for Dr Ravi Jain's honest advice. I had a treatment with Dr Jain to lift the face slightly, which had no downtime or pain. I woke up in the morning and it was the first time in a long time that I looked at my face and felt fresh. It's the only way I can explain it. I really had lost a few years overnight. Thank you to Dr Ravi Jain and the team at Riverbanks.

Dr Ravi Jain was amazing, I had read good reviews and they were absolutely correct. I felt at ease from the moment I met Dr Jain. I’m so happy with the treatment, I feel I look totally refreshed and not overly done . I’m delighted and my friends comment on how great it looks .. I can’t wait to discover and try other treatments available.. five Stars ⭐️

All the staff were so friendly, very professional and it’s a really relaxing clinic. Lori was very calming, I was a bit nervous as it was my first visit. My treatment was painless, she was ever so gentle. Very happy with the results of my treatment, thank you!

I visit Riverbanks regularly throughout the year and I am never disappointed with the service and treatment I receive. Having used a variety of clinics over the years, I would not go anywhere else now. The results I get from Dr Jain are second to none and would not let anyone else do my Botox.

The whole experience was pain free and I have received many compliments for ‘looking well’ without the compliment givers knowing why – which is exactly what I wanted! I can certainly recommend it, and a trip to the very tranquil, lovely Riverbanks from London is quick and easy – a very pleasant experience all round. Very happy!

Botulinum toxin is one of the most researched drugs in medicine. It is used safely in young children and adults in all national health systems worldwide. It is an excellent non-surgical and minimally invasive solution for improving lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet, and making people look and feel radiant again. Similarly, hyaluronic acid fillers are great for making sure you don’t look ‘worked on’, partly because hyaluronic acid already occurs in the body.

FAQS

Treatment Questions

  • What is the treatment used for? add_circle
    Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers are used to combat the wrinkles that form when we laugh, smile and frown. Botulinum toxin can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), bruxism (teeth grinding), jawline slimming and a number of other conditions.
  • How long do the results last? add_circle
    With botulinum toxin, the effects normally last 3-4 months. With hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, the effects normally last 6-12 months.
  • Is the treatment painful? add_circle
    A botulinum toxin treatment is generally painless and no anaesthesia is necessary. With dermal fillers, you may feel a tiny pin prick when the fine needle enters your skin. After that, there should be no pain thanks to the local anaesthetic pre-mixed into the fillers.
  • When will I see results? add_circle
    Results from our dermal fillers are instant. You will see results from a botulinum toxin treatment in about 5-7 days (sometimes it can take 2 weeks to see the full effects of treatment).
  • Are there any risks or side effects? add_circle
    Dermal fillers can sometimes cause blockages in blood vessels but this rarely happens in skilled medical hands. With both fillers and botulinum toxin, there is sometimes bruising and soreness at the injection sites. Rarer side effects of dermal fillers include prolonged bruising, delayed swellings and allergic reactions. Similarly rare side effects from botulinum toxin include headaches, flu-like symptoms and temporary facial weakness.
