Dr Dan Dhunna – Botox injections, Harley Street London
Anti-wrinkle injections such Botox are no longer just for the rich and famous. This highly-effective treatment for the temporary reduction of dynamic lines and wrinkles has boomed in popularity due to its accessibility and indeed, it is commonplace that most London cosmetic clinics will administer them for you.
But don’t be fooled, not all Botox doctors are created equal and there is ‘good’ Botox, ‘great’ Botox and ultimately ‘superb’ Botox. It’s best you read on to find out where to get the latter.
So what is Botox, and what are you paying for, exactly?
Botox is actually a brand name. The true, medical term for the substance used for the procedure is Botulinum Toxin Type A. This is a purified protein which, when injected into nerve cells, temporarily paralyses the muscle fibre, responsible for those annoying lines and wrinkles that form when we pull a face such as frowning or laughing. Botox prevents the muscles moving in the way they have become accustomed to over the years – which originally formed your deep wrinkles. The end result is a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion for months at a time.
It’s important to recognise that Botox will only affect dynamic lines and wrinkles and not deep set, static lines, grooves and deeper furrows. This is the job of another popular treatment, dermal fillers. Botox and dermal fillers are commonly used together for the ultimate in facial rejuvenation and overall beautification.
Results from Botox anti-wrinkle injections can take several days to appear and can last from three to eight months, depending upon your individual response to the treatment. This makes Botox injections highly-desirable and cost-effective. You could spend thousands of pounds on face creams and ‘traditional’ salon-led facials and never get the same results as with this highly-effective long lasting treatment. Although it’s worth investing in great skincare, the effects of Botox are second-to-none in comparison.
It essential to have your Botox administered by a medically-qualified and highly-experienced aesthetic doctor and Dr Dan Dhunna is just that. For safe and premium results, attend a medical clinic; ensure you have had a full, pre-treatment consultation with a cooling-off period and that you feel fully-confident with you chosen Botox London doctor. It’s also worth knowing that Dr Dan Dhunna is passionate about art and creativity, as well as being medically-trained and specially educated in Botox injections. Known as the Michelangelo of Botox, Dr Dan Dhunna has carved a reputation which is unsurpassed in this field.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is BOTOX ®?
BOTOX ® is the brand name for a Prescription Only medicine made by Allergan, an International Pharmaceutical Company and World Leader in Cosmetic Science.
Derived from a bacteria in much the same way Penicillin is derived from mould, the BOTOX ® protein has been extensively used in over 50 years to safely treat conditions in adults and children.
It has 21 different licensed medical uses across the world including treatments of squints, muscle spasms, cerebral palsy, excess sweating (hyperhidrosis), bladder instability and chronic migraine.
It has been used for over 20 years by Doctors for its benefits in Cosmetic Medicine and has a license for Cosmetic Use in over 75 countries including the UK.
How Does It Work?
BOTOX ® acts as a muscle relaxant by temporarily preventing the nerve signals from reaching the muscle.
Normally, when we express our faces, muscles pull and draw the skin into characteristic lines, wrinkles and folds such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. These can leave you looking tired, angry and older than your years.
BOTOX ® injections relax these muscles causing a softening and sometimes even eradication in these strong dynamic lines leaving a softer, refreshed look. Common areas for treatment include
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Crows feet
What does the treatment involve and are the results natural?
Dr Dan Dhunna is regarded as a Master of BOTOX ® injections. He prides himself on creating an artistic, natural effect and is often nicknamed the “Michelangelo of BOTOX ®” for his creative flair!
Using his extensive medical and artistic knowledge, small amounts of BOTOX ® are injected with a very fine micro-needle precisely into the overactive facial muscles, leaving surrounding muscles untouched. His technique is virtually painless and does not require any anaesthesia.
This gives a very natural effect and doesn’t leave the face expressionless.
Results become evident within a few days but may take up to 2 weeks for the full effect. Results last on average for 3-4 months, after which you will require a further treatment to maintain the look. Over time it is not uncommon for results to last longer with regular treatments.

Who Can Inject BOTOX ® ?

Remote Prescribing, commonly practiced in salons; where a nurse gains a prescription for BOTOX ® from a Doctor and the patient is injected without the Doctor physically seeing the patient breaks codes from the NMC (nursing midwifery council) and the GMC (general medical council) and practitioners can hence be reported and lose their license to practice. Patients are always encouraged to check the license and prescribing status of the injecting practitioner with the NMC, GMC or GDC before considering treatment.
Patients can rest assured as they are in competent hands as Dr Dan Dhunna performs all consultations, treatments and follow ups and has performed over 25 000 injectable procedures.
