Practicing Safe Aesthetic Medicine
Clinic Administered Botox By Cosmetic Doctors | London | Derby | Nottingham
– Prescription Only | Doctor Consultation Required
Approved by both the FDA(USA) & MHRA (UK), Botox in our London is used for various aesthetic and medical indications ranging from anti-ageing to migraine and bruxism/TMJ treatments. Botox is a highly purified protein derived from the bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. It blocks the nerves to muscles that cause wrinkles & unnecessary expression as well as sweat glands to decrease excessive sweating. Also, in bruxism it is used to relax powerful enlarged (hypertrophied) jaw muscles to provide pain relief and now is FDA approved for migraines/headaches. Often referred to as a potent toxin in the media it is used in very low doses that are safe when performed by experienced medical practitioners.
As collagen production starts to decrease lines and wrinkles formed due to expression start to become permanent at rest but he mid-late twenties. Botox treatment early will prevent lines and soften deeper preventing them from progressing. We will recommend a treatment plan tailored for you.
CosmeDocs Is A Long Standing London Botox Clinic
Our experience with botox & azzalure is second to none providing thousands of procedures as well as involved in training other physicians in UK & Internationally.
From experience of our busy London botox clinic we have evolved our practice and methods over 13 years. We are constantly developing new concepts and injection techniques; now widely taught via our training academy (Harley Street
Botox will soften the power of the strong expressions as it is injected under the skin into the muscle. Botox doesn’t “fix lines” and deep lines present at rest will not disappear as botox is injected under the skin into the muscle. Deep lines at rest may require additional treatment with dermal fillers to replace lost volume.
A multi-dimensional approach needs to be implemented at softening the muscle power and rejuvenating the skin with medical, often prescription based, skin care that stimulates collagen production. A combination approach increasing skin collagen as well as relaxing the muscles results in fewer injectable treatments in the future and a more natural appearance. Our aesthetic doctors are trained uniquely in assessing skin dynamics and recommending the right approach for you.
Botox procedure works well for both men and women though injection patterns vary according to muscle dynamics, age and desired outcome.

Baby Botox / Micro-Tox For Even More Natural Appearance
Baby botox also known as ‘Microtox’ uses a careful, advanced technique of botox injections using microneedles. Tiny droplets of botox are injected into the dermis and the superficial layer of facial muscles. The botox relaxes the outermost muscles and diffuses into sweat and sebaceous glands. The result gives a natural appearance without an ‘over-botoxed’ look as fine lines decrease with a weakened superficial muscle layer but without compromising deep muscle movement. There are additional benefits as the texture of the skin can improve with decreased sweat and sebum production reducing skin sheen and the appearance of open pores in the T-zone.
Possible Treatment Areas
Upper Face Botox
In the upper face the most common areas are the frown complex, forehead and crows feet. These constitute the 3 main areas of the upper face. They are performed to reduce lines wrinkles or even unwanted expression such as a constant surprised or angry look. In females flattening of the eyebrows occur with ageing and a botox injecting technique to lift the corners off the eyebrows can help improve & lift the eyebrows. Natural male eyebrows are flat and it is important in both males & females to prevent compensatory movement giving the tell tale “botoxed” look. This is achieved by careful planning of the injection sites as well as a tweak in two week sometimes.
Mid & Lower Face Botox
Dynamic lines & wrinkles in the lower face are often ignored by clients as well as practitioners. We regularly receive new clients who have had treatment for years elsewhere but never had botox to their chin or side of the jaw muscle pulling the corner of the lips down. This is unfortunate as most individuals with dynamic lines in the upper face also may have excessive movement and expression in the lower. By not treating the lower a disparity between the upper and lower face becomes visible. Botox for the lower face commonly includes treatment of negative expressions such as downturned mouth corners. Other possible indications are:
- Nasal Flaring
- Droopy Nose Tip On Smiling
- Smoker’s Lip Lines
- Gummy Smile
- Droopy Lip Corners
- Chin Lines & Dimpling
- Nefertiti Botox Face Lift
- Jaw Muscle Reduction (For Wide Jaw, Ache, TMD)
- Neck Bands & Cords (Turkey Neck)
Botox for Medical Conditions
- TMJ Disorder / Jaw Pain
- Migraines & Headaches
- Facial Asymmetry Correction (Bell’s Palsy)
Botox is a miraculous drug which is manufactured from the bacteria, a neurotoxin, Clostridium botulinum, which is known as Botulinum Toxin. It is used to cosmetically treat the problems of wrinkles, aging and medical treatment of certain condition of muscles through temporary paralysis of muscles. Botox is increasingly used in the industry of facial aesthetics. Botox is also used for the treatment of hyperhydrosis, jaw reduction, certain conditions of eye muscles, cervical dystonia, wrinkles etc.
At Cosmedocs we have three brands available for which botulinum toxin type A is the active substance: Azzalure® (Dysport®), Bocouture® (Xeomin®) and Vistabel® (Botox®).
The dilution and injection technique varies depending on the chosen product. This is a concern for the practitioner but is of little importance to the client. Azzalure® has a tendency to take effect quicker and have a longer duration of action. It is also more likely to have a stronger, smoother effect. Azzalure® has also been reported to ‘spread more’ which can be used as an advantage when treating larger areas such as underarms for hyperhidrosis. Conversely, Bocouture® or Vistabel® may be selected to treat smaller, more specific areas or if a softer effect is required.
At CosmeDocs we are happy to use a particular brand if requested by a patient. Otherwise, each brand is priced similarly and depends on the area treated. Our doctors will select the product they feel will best treat an individual’s concern.
The duration can vary depending on numerous factors such as an individual response, the dose, previous treatments and the type of product used. On average, a treatment is expected to last approximately 3 months. Many patients do report results lasting 4-6 months, however, this is not the case for everyone.
When the botox treatments are performed by expert and professional doctors and practitioners, then they are relatively safer. Most commonly observed side effects of bBotox injections are bruising and swelling at the area of treatment along with flu- like symptoms. If the Botox injections are not administered by expert it may cause problems in the adjacent tissues altering the shape of facial features.
The answer to this depends on personal aesthetic preferences. For those who prefer to appear natural whilst avoiding deep lines forming, a treatment once a year or repeated baby botox procedures may be recommended. Indeed, some individuals may be happy with results after one treatment and only return if a bothersome line starts to reappear. Many others desire a lasting smooth look which would require repeat treatments every 4-6 months.
After the procedure the doctor may advise you to keep the muscles injected active for about 20 minutes. This may involve frowning, raising eyebrows or smiling depending on a particular treatment.
DO NOT massage the treated areas and avoid touching if possible. Pressure on the areas increase the chance of toxin spreading from the area treated and causing unwanted effects. Only apply makeup if necessary and minimal pressure applied, a powder may be easier to apply with soft brush strokes.
It is advised to avoid ANY form of sport on the day of a botox treatment. Normal activities can be resumed the following day. In addition it is not recommended to have any facial treatments for approximately 3 days after injections.
Sun or heat exposure (such as saunas and hot showers) is not advised on the day of a botox treatment. As redness and swelling settles normal activities can be resumed. The next day is usually fine.
Alcohol should be avoided on the day of procedure.
At CosmeDocs we prefer individuals to have continuity with a doctor and where possible will book you with the same practitioner. If a particular doctor is not available we will provide alternative options. If a client requests to see a different practitioner, this also is possible.
As muscles regain their strength it is usual for movement to return to normal and lines reoccur in their previous positions. Some individuals find that botox reduces habituala habitual movements so they are less likely to frown as much for example. With repeated botox treatments, muscles are weakened for a prolonged period and may take longer to regain their strength.
The botox treatment cost varies with the type of treatment you want to have. To obtain complete information about the prices of different botox treatments offered by cosemdocs.com, check our prices section. We usually charge prices for per botox treatment.
The most common observable side effects of Botox are bruising and swelling which takes place at the area where Botox injections are administered. But it usually wears off in few days time. Other less severe side effects might include weakness of muscle at the area where botox is injected, pain, headache, stiffness of muscles, pain in neck or back, symptoms of flu, drowsiness, drooping eyes or eye lids etc. all these conditions are rare and can take week or so to go away as your body adjust itself to the Botox medication. It is better to consult to your doctor before taking any kind of Botox injections treatment.
The possible risks vary with the area treated with botox. When treating the forehead or frown area it is possible for the eyebrows or eyelids to droop. It is not always possible to ascertain the cause as it may be due to injection technique, dilution, or accidental movements/activities after the procedure. A droop usually wears off between 4-6 weeks. In some cases, eyedrops may be prescribed which can improve symptoms. Botox in the lower part of the face can lead to asymmetry of the lips when talking or smiling. Again, botox does wear off and these complications are rare.
The most common side effects of botox treatments are bruising, redness and, occasionally, a temporary dull headache.
The media is largely responsible for the awareness of a ‘shiny forehead’ after botox treatments and is often a look avoided by many clients. This shiny appearance is due to an overly smooth forehead with little movement. A more natural appearance can be obtained by using lower doses of toxin such as baby botox injections. It is worth noting here that botox is frequently used to reduce excessive sweating and that shiny foreheads after botox are rarely due to perspiration.
Many individuals are very aware of deep lines that their parents or siblings have developed and are conscious of taking preventative measures. Botox injections work well on ‘dynamic’ lines; wrinkles that occur when muscles are contracted. So it is indeed possible to help prevent deeper creases forming and utilising Botox anti wrinkle treatments as a preventative treatment.
Numerous clients have asked this question and the answer depends on the concern an individual has. Cosmedocs has tried to clearly outline possible problem areas on this website which can provide information on the possible options. In general, botox is the preferred option for wrinkles formed primarily by active muscle movement. For deeper lines and areas of volume loss, dermal fillers are usually recommended. This will be discussed in depth with individuals at appointments.
For clients that feel they may have had a side effect or complication from botox, there are some interventions that may relieve the unwanted effects. It is highly advised to book a review appointment if a client has any concerns. As the effects of botox are temporary, it is reassuring to know that most adverse effects tend to wear off within a few weeks, some however may last a few months.
There is no antidote to botox. However, botox does only have temporary effects lasting a few months and unwanted side effects will wear off. Most practitioners take a cautious approach to avoid any complications as additional botox is easy to add if required.
