Botox, which is sometimes known as wrinkle-smoothing injections is the most popular injectable anti-ageing injectable treatment in the world. It’s now commonplace as one of the most effective treatments to smooth unwanted expression lines and dynamic wrinkles. No longer is it just the rich and famous who can access this relatively temporary-yet highly-effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles. In London alone, there are literally hundreds of Botox clinics to choose from and thousands of treatments performed each year. However, before you choose your Botox doctor, you must do your research and ensure you are enlisting the skills of a highly-trained medical professional, such as Dr Dan Dhunna.
What is Botox?
Botox is actually a brand name for Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified protein which, when injected into nerve cells within the facial muscles, temporarily relaxes the muscle fibre. There are other brands on the market, however, Botox has become the most well-known and highly-recognised and many people now use the word ‘Botox’ instead of the true name of this substance. Botox prevents the muscles moving in the way they have become accustomed to over the years (the cause of dynamic wrinkles) and creates a smoother, less lined appearance to these areas. The ultimate result is a more youthful-looking complexion.
Botox has been used as an anti-wrinkle injectable treatment for decades, however, it was first used in medicine to stop involuntary spasms, ease and prevent migraine headaches and to help stop incontinence. Botox has long been proven as safe as an injectable treatment for the temporary smoothing of expression lines (the lines that are created when we frown, laugh and concentrate). Botox is revered as it is a relatively simple and quick procedure to administer (when offered by a fully-qualified medical professional) and the results, though temporary are longer-lasting and more effective than facials or anti-wrinkle creams.
Depending on the way your body responds to Botox injections, the results can take several days to appear and can last between 3 and 6 months. In some cases patients even report their results lasting for up to 8 months.
Botox can also be used as a preventative measure, as it can discourage further expression lines appearing, when used over a period of time. If used from the early 30s, Botox can give a youthful-appearance to the face for many years as part of a

It essential to have your Botox administered by a fully-qualified and highly-experienced aesthetic doctor to achieve the very best results in a safe and clinical environment. Botox is a prescribed medicine and it is illegal for non-medics to offer this treatment. Dr Dan Dhunna has been treating with Botox for many years and as a medical professional, can assess the face as a whole and artistically and precisely administer the correct dose in the areas of concern for optimum efficacy.
Prior to any injectable treatment here at Dr Dan Dhunna’s clinics in London, he will conduct a no obligation, initial consultation with you, to check your medical history and discuss your expectations for the outcome you desire. Only then will he go ahead and offer this wrinkle-smoothing treatment. Dr Dan Dhunna is a perfectionist and will only offer you Botox injections if he feels they will truly improve and beautify your face. A duty of care is the number one priority of a skilled and ethical medical professional such as Dr Dan Dhunna and you should always enlist someone with this code of ethics when it comes to any non-surgical, injectable treatment.
Although the industry is self-regulated and many beauty therapists have started to claim that they are ‘trained’ to administer Botox as well as dermal fillers, there have been disastrous outcomes for those taking a ‘cheaper’ road and using such practitioners; something which Dr Dan Dhunna tries to explain to his patients on a regular basis. Only a medical professional understands how to correctly assess a patient, administer the treatment effectively and safely and indeed, handle any unforeseen circumstances which might occur (though this is extremely rare). It’s not just your face that you are putting in to the hands of your practitioner, but your health and wellbeing. Therefore, make the sensible choices at the start of your journey with Botox injections and you’ll stay safe and will obtain the best, most beautiful results.

Wrinkle Treatments with Botox
The results that Botox delivers are generally misunderstood. Botox will not permanently eliminate expression lines such as crow’s feet, forehead lines and the lines between your eyebrows, but they will soften the lines, temporarily and create a smoother complexion. Make up will sit more readily on the skin and the skin will appear more healthy-looking and smooth. Botox will not affect those deeper-set lines which appear when you are not creating an expression. Nor will it address skin laxity, sunken cheeks or temporal hollows. These are better addressed with dermal fillers, which Dr Dan Dhunna also specialises in. Often, a combination of both Botox and dermal fillers can offer a holistic treatment, addressing several concerns at once and is an option here at Dr Dan Dhunna’s clinics in London.
