Botox Injections in Stoke on Trent

He has been extensively trained in this field by Mr Taimur Shoaib who is a Consultant Plastic Surgeon in Glasgow and has over 10 years of clinical experience.

Botulinum Toxin (popularly known as Botox®, Azzalure and Bocouture) is a protein that helps stop muscles contracting. Small painless injections into the facial muscles will help keep these muscles relaxed and soften facial lines. Botox is a safe and virtually pain free non-surgical wrinkle reduction technique. It has the advantage that treatment times are on average 5-15 minutes, and prices are dramatically lower than that of the equivalent surgery.
Botox reversibly relaxes muscle tissue which can be successfully used to combat ageing associated with gravity and sun exposure. It is usually applied to the areas around the face where dermal collagen has been weakened, such as the upper lip, forehead creases, neck lines and crows feet.
Anti-Wrinkle injections (Botox®) are amongst the most popular non-surgical treatment in Stoke on Trent and the UK because of their effectiveness and comfort with immediate results. When combined with dermal fillers, you can have a non-surgical facelift at a fraction of the cost of surgery.

Do anti-wrinkle injectables prevent ageing?
It has been reported that, if used regularly, anti-wrinkle injectables can delay and prevent the signs of ageing. As we know facial movement such as squinting and frowning can cause lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin restricts facial muscle movement which means signs of ageing can be prevented.
Who administers the Botox?
All anti-wrinkle injectables such as Botox are administered by Dr Gary Wu. He has received extensive training within this field and provided this treatment for the last 10 years.
Other uses of botox?
We also use botox for teeth clenching and jawline reduction and excessive underarm sweating.
Is Botox safe?
Botox has been used medically for over two decades with a proven track record. The dosage we use for facial rejuvenation is very low therefore the level of safety is extremely high. An experienced practitioner would know the facial anatomy and know specific areas to target.
How long does the results last for?
It depends on the individual and the area treated. On average, btx lasts approximately for 3 to 6 months. You will experience a gradual gain in muscle movement over this period. After several painless injections, however, most people find that the effects persist for longer. Your treatment will be carefully monitored, and the interval between treatments adjusted accordingly.
