5 Things to Consider Before Having Botox in London

Botox in London

Botox injections are the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment year after year. Thousands of women and men of different ages have this injection treatment every year, and despite the advancement of other treatments, Botox in London remains the No. 1 choice.


Patient safety is our top priority at London City Skin Clinic and we would like to see standards raised across the industry. This is why at our clinic you will only ever see a Medical Doctor for your treatment, before, during and after the procedure.




  1. Understand Botox


Please do familiarise yourself thoroughly with any cosmetic treatment you are having. We believe the best patient is an informed patient so we try on our website and blog to share information that can help anyone considering treatment.


Botox is a brand/trade name for the Botulinum toxin which is a protein and neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is an effective muscle relaxer and has been approved for well over 15 years for cosmetic use, with its medical use extending back to the 1950s.


Botulinum toxin is used to treat a huge range of medical problems, including excessive sweating, migraines, eye twitching, muscle spasms and bladder problems. It is the most popular cosmetic procedure year after year in the UK and US as many people find it a great way to maintain and revitalise their skin. The best cosmetic results aren’t noticeable so always choose a good clinic to avoid a frozen look.


  1. Make sure you choose a qualified and experienced practitioner


Botox should only ever be administered by an experienced and qualified medical professional or you risk completely unnecessary additional complications. Don’t be afraid to ask for their qualifications, it is a great treatment that really does work so choose carefully. Recommendations from previous patients are a great way to know that the practitioner is trustworthy.


  1. Less is more


At London City Skin Clinic we specialise in natural-looking results with Botox. You can easily avoid the “frozen look” by careful assessment and discussion with the Doctor.

A good clinic will let you know what will work best for you, but will work with you to achieve the look you desire.


  1. Know the risks


Every cosmetic treatment has a degree of risk, Botox is no different. If you choose a good doctor, medical complications are very minimal. No one has died from the cosmetic injection of Botox and complications are rare. It’s the most popular cosmetic procedure every year for very good reason and more people than you expect get it done without anyone knowing. However, for example, a few people may not respond well to the treatment and see the results they would like. It is important to have contact details for your practitioner, and a good professional always follows up and keeps in touch with the patient.

  1. Understand your expectations


We can help you manage your expectations by explaining the treatment to you in its entirety. Botox can be used to prevent and treat wrinkles so it attracts people of most ages but a good skincare routine and protecting yourself against the sun can work wonders also.
