Before we advise on any anti-ageing treatment you will have a free consultation with one of our experienced and suitably qualified health professionals. The consultation will help us to better understand the areas you would like addressed and will allow us to make recommendations for the most appropriate treatments so that you can make an informed decision on how you would like to proceed.

Treatment for fine lines and wrinkles

Muscle relaxing injections may be recommended for lines and wrinkles. They work by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles responsible for fine lines and wrinkles, including frown lines, crows-feet, lines across the forehead, marionette lines (corners of the mouth) and eye brow lifts. Botox® is the brand that we use here at the Cooden Medical Group. It is safe, quick, virtually pain-free to administer, and effective.

Natural appearance

Our approach is to give you natural result, so our highly skilled and experienced doctors and nurses use the latest techniques in the most relevant areas for a fresh faced look rather than a frozen one.

Is Botox® safe?

Botox® and other muscle relaxing injections are prescription-only medicines and can only be subscribed by an appropriately qualified professional (doctor or prescribing nurse). You should never buy Botox® or similar products off the internet or from sources that you are unsure about.

We use Botox® for correcting the following issues:

  • Frown lines / Worry lines
  • Glabella area (top middle of eyes)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead creases (ridging)
  • Bunny lines (top of nose)
  • Eyebrow lift
  • Gummy lips (toothy smiles)
  • Marionette lines (mouth corner lift)
  • Nefertiti neck (turkey neck)
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under arms / hands / feet)

  • Are muscle relaxing injections safe?

    Yes, but they must be administered by a trained, medical practitioner experienced in this procedure. The most common side effects include swelling or bruising at the injection site, headache or flu-like symptoms.

    How long will the treatment last?

    Although this varies between individuals, Botox® can last around 3 to 4 months, however the results will be longer-lasting if more units are used. It’s the number of units used, not the volume injected that determines the effectiveness of this treatment and longer lasting results are achieved with regular treatments.

    Are muscle relaxing injections painful?

    Of course, any injection can produce a slight sensation as the needle goes in, but we use very fine needles, so any pain is very minimal and it is very quick. If you wish, we can numb the area with a topical anaesthetic cream or cold pack 10-20 minutes before treatment, which can help on more sensitive areas, such as around the eyes or lips.

  • Prices for Botox® start from £150 for women & £190 for men
