"I don't want to look younger, I just don't want to look any older"

With simple and unobtrusive procedures, Botox® which has been in use since 1978 for a variety of medical conditions is used to temporarily relax muscles mainly in the upper one third of the face and around the eyes.

Wrinkles and frown lines develop as a result of using facial muscles repeatedly throughout a lifetime,with the skin creasing in areas of greatest use. Added to this, the ageing process causes the slow down of collagen and elastin production in the skin, so that as we get older these lines become permanent and are present even when we are not frowning or expressing. By reducing the movement of muscles in these areas, the skin stops being creased and is allowed to recover, causing the lines to soften or even fade away. In the areas treated, the muscles are temporarily inactivated (always reversible), during which time the patient can break the subconscious habit of over- using these muscles.

Depending on each individual and the dose used, the response to treatment can vary from slight relaxation of the muscle to minimal movement. At The Glasshouse we favour the less is more approach,which ensures the result is naturally noticeable but nobody will know you have had a helping hand.

For the procedure itself, an experienced practitioner will inject minimal amounts and follow this with a review after 2 weeks, after which a top-up dose may be needed. Depending on the area treated, dose used and how you respond to Botox®, repeat treatments will be required around every 4-6 months.

With such expert care comes the good news that side effects of this treatment are very rare. It is important that if you intend to have Botox® you attend a specialized clinic which carries out these treatments everyday. At The Glasshouse, Clapham our practitioners are experienced at administering Botox ® everyday,we specialize in this area and believe Botox® must only be performed in a clinical setting as stipulated by the Healthcare Commission.

Alison Telfer the Aesthetic Director routinely has Botox and therefore truly understands the importance of a natural looking outcome when standing at the school gates! and the importance of having the most experienced and gentle practitioners at our clinic.

Many of our patients don't tell their friends or family!! They prefer to sit back and enjoy the comments of how good they look.
