How do I know I am suitable for Botox injections?
Anyone who is over the age of 25 and is starting to notice expression lines and dynamic wrinkles could most probably benefit from Botox. However, Dr Dan Dhunna will always insist that he sees you for a pre-treatment consultation before any procedure can commence. In this initial meeting, Dr Dan Dhunna will discuss your requirements and will examine your facial anatomy as well as the condition of your skin. He will also check your medical history (something that non-qualified practitioners neglect to do), to ensure that you are fit and healthy enough to have the treatment. Only then will he agree to proceed and can then discuss with you the potential outcomes you can expect, any aftercare that you will need to adhere to and probable longevity of results.
What happens during a Botox treatment?
During your treatment your skin will be initially cleansed and sterilised. Dr Dan Dhunna will then ask you to make several facial expressions which may seem a little odd. However, this is so that he can see precisely where he should administer the Botox injections. He will mark with a white pencil, the precise points where the needle will be inserted. Once this is done, he will then begin the injections.
Botox injections are administered using the finest and smallest needles. Therefore, the treatment is not painful. You may feel a little sensation but this should not be too uncomfortable. If you are particularly sensitive or nervous, Dr Dan Dhunna can apply some topical numbing cream, around 30 minutes before treatment to ease any discomfort. However, this is not usually necessary.
Once Dr Dan Dhunna has completed the treatment, he will gently wipe the areas of injection with a sterilising wipe and then will explain the aftercare procedures you will need to adhere to, such as not bending forward, rubbing your face or washing your face too aggressively for at least 4 hours after the treatment.
When will I see results from my Botox treatment?
You should start to experience results around 24 to 48 hours after your treatment. However, expect to see full results at around 2 weeks post-procedure. At this stage, you will be able to re-visit Dr Dan Dhunna for a post-treatment examination and receive any ‘top ups’ that may be required.
It’s important to remember that Dr Dan Dhunna takes a ‘less is more’ approach when it comes to injectable cosmetic treatments, therefore he would prefer to be able to add and not regret that you cannot take away, after the product has been administered!
Dr Dan Dhunna offers natural-looking results and will never make you look ‘overdone’ or give you the ‘wind tunnel’ expression that some, less experienced Botox injectors can give to their patients. Therefore, applying a conservative approach and a little time and patience will yield the most attractive and beautiful results possible.
How long do results last after Botox injections?
This is the magic question that everyone asks us here at Dr Dan Dhunna’s clinics and the simple answer is that it does vary from patient to patient. Some patients can experience results for up to 7 months, whilst others start to require more treatment around 3 to 4 months post-procedure.
Essentially, your own metabolism, skin quality and lifestyle will determine how long results from Botox injections will last. Dr Dan Dhunna cannot guarantee a shelf-life of any particular time-frame. However, he will work with you to determine when you feel you need more treatment and when he feels it best to re-administer the product.
It’s important to take in to consideration that the ageing process continues and our faces are ageing all the time. So what you looked like when your Botox wore off 5 years ago, will be a very different story to how your face look when Botox wears off now. Being realistic and reasonable about how your face changes over the years will help you in the long run, understand what to expect when the time comes for another Botox treatment.
Dr Dan Dhunna will consider how your face has changed at every stage and will tweak or amend his treatment accordingly, so you get the very best from your Botox treatment.

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.
How Safe is BOTOX ®?
BOTOX ® injections are an extremely safe treatment when conducted in the right hands. A full medical assessment and consent will be taken prior to any treatment.
Dr Dan Dhunna is a trained GP and Advanced Cosmetic Doctor having performed over an estimated 20 000 cosmetic injectable procedures!
He is a Member of the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors, The British College of Aesthetic Medicine and the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine.
He is also the Country Ambassador for ALLERGAN, the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers of BOTOX ® and Juvederm/ Voluma in the UK.
There are other versions of the medicine available from other manufacturers and clinics, (Dysport, Azzalure , Xeomin) these may not work as well as BOTOX ® and may cause more side effects such as spread to unwanted areas.
BOTOX ® is licensed in over 75 countries and has been used for over 12 years as a brand. It has an extensive safety profile and has over 4000 research papers written about it.
It is a Prescription Only Medicine and new guidelines by the General Medical Council enforce that the Prescribing Doctor must see the patient at the time of injection. Unfortunately this is a rule flouted by many!

What are the Side Effects?

Who Can Inject BOTOX ® ?
BOTOX ® is a prescription only medication and must only be injected by qualified and registered Doctors. New Regulations allow nurses to inject, and as most nurses are non prescribers, the patient must see the prescribing Doctor each time for a Face to Face Consultation. 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. He is a registered and revalidated Dr and GP with the General Medical Council and Member of the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors, The British College of Aesthetic Medicine and the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine
