Nuriss Botox® injections refresh and rejuvenate the skin without compromising patients’ natural facial expressions. As well as smoothing skin for a younger-looking complexion, Nuriss Anti-Wrinkle Injections can also be used to treat tendon injuries, irritable bladders and facial spasms.
Nuriss Anti-Wrinkle Injections in London are used to smooth over frown lines and wrinkles, which are caused by weakened skin collagen from too much sun exposure, gravity or excessive facial muscle action. The most popular treatment areas include:
When administered in our central London clinic, Nuriss Botox® treatment works by sending a message to facial muscle nerves, stopping them from contracting, which smooths out existing wrinkles and helps prevent deeper lines from forming. We promote the natural look with treatments designed to create a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance, meaning it will not look obvious or compromise your ability to make facial expressions. If you are not fully satisfied with your Botox® results after 2 to 3 weeks, we will review and possibly re-treat the area at no additional cost, to ensure you achieve your desired results. Botox® prices start from £210 for one treatment area and typical examples include the forehead, crow’s feet or Glabellar lines, which are creases between the brows.
Nuriss Botox® is one of the most effective and competitively-priced anti-wrinkle treatments available in London. Prices vary and are based on your specific requirements and the number of procedures required. This and other details will be discussed during your initial in-depth consultation at our Wimpole Street clinic. Prices start from as little as £210, giving Nuriss patients some of the best prices and treatments available in London.
Frequently Asked Questions
Botox® can be injected into the lips to prevent the vertical lines and wrinkles associated with age and smoking. It is possible to inject a small amount of Botox® into the corners of the nose to decrease your gum line, so when you smile your upper lip appears smaller. There is the slight possibility that lip Botox® can widen the lips. However, this is only effective in those who have overactive muscles around their lips.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are not our first choice when it comes to lip injections to achieve plumper lips. It is best to use Botox® around the eyes and other areas to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Instead of Botox® treatments, we suggest our Dermal Filler treatment for the lips, which will stay in the spot where it is injected as a space occupier, filling deflated tissue.
Botox® can be used to successfully lift the tail of the brow. Facial muscles pull in opposite directions, so in the case of a Botox® brow lift, the muscles pulling the brow downward are paralysed, while leaving the ones lifting the brow untouched.
Botox® treatment for men is constantly growing in popularity around the world, including Britain. Nuriss Anti-Wrinkle Injections are suitable for both men and women and work equally well on both genders.
Botox® can be used as a preventative treatment for chronic migraine sufferers – those who experience migraines lasting 4 hours or more at least 15 days per month – because it blocks the release of neuro-transmitters from being sent to the central nervous system. These signals cause the nerves to become highly sensitive, and cause pain. Botox® should never be used to treat common tension headaches.
The botulinum toxin is mixed with saline (salt water) and injected into the muscle with a tiny needle. The number of injections needed per session will be discussed during your pre-treatment consultation.
Various clinical trials have indicated that Botox® can reduce arthritis pain in the shoulders, knees and hips. This is because it blocks the transmission of certain chemical signals that relay information between nerves and the brain. However, the preliminary studies have been relatively small, and did not include a control group or compare Botox® injections with a placebo. Therefore, there is not enough research to confirm for sure that Botox® is an effective treatment for arthritis pain.
Results will appear within about one fortnight after treatment and work best on newly developed wrinkles and lines. Results last around 4 months and we recommend follow up injections to maintain the desired effect. After 3 to 4 treatments within an initial 12-month period, many patients find they only need to follow up with treatments once or twice a year.
This is a common misconception. It is true that it can happen when extreme amounts of Botox® are injected, and we have all seen celebrities who have had an unfortunate Botox® job done. However, when administered by one of our London practitioners, only trained cosmetic surgeons will be able to tell that you have had treatment and your facial muscles and ability to make expressions will not be compromised.
Although cheap Botox® kits can be an appealing option, the risks associated with incorrectly positioning or administering these treatments far outweigh the benefits. There is a good reason why only our qualified and experienced skincare professionals perform Botox® treatments at our clinic in London. Nuriss strict medical protocols prevent our practitioners from administering Anti-Wrinkle Injections outside the confines of our clinic, where we have advanced technology and medicines to ensure optimal safety.
Botox® is supplied as a crystalline substance, which is then reconstituted with saline. Medical practitioners add varying amounts of liquid when reconstituting it. When practitioners add a greater ratio of saline to Botox®, patients can be lead to believe they are getting more Botox® when, in reality, they are getting the same or lesser amounts. Since it is the total dose of Botox®, not the volume of saline, that leads to the desired effect, it is important to remember that if a clinic promises to provide Botox® at a dollar amount per unit, it is quite possible that they are diluting the treatment and not providing the agreed-upon amount. Nuriss Botox® prices are based on the overall treatment required, not the volume of liquid used, meaning patients get the best value for their money.
Nuriss Botox® costs vary depending on each patient’s individual needs, skin type and severity of wrinkles. However, we offer some of the best prices in London for our advanced treatments, which are administered safely by expert skincare specialists. Our cheap Botox® London treatments start from £210.
You must disclose all medications – both natural and prescribed – to your Nuriss practitioner during your initial consultation. You may need to forgo blood thinners, including aspirin and ibuprofen, prior to treatment to reduce the risk of bleeding or bruising. It is also imperative that you disclose any allergies, such as eggs, because Botox® is prepared with an albumin (egg) base. Your Nuriss practitioner will advise you on how to prepare for the treatment during your initial in-depth consultation and skin assessment.
Although it is highly unlikely, there is a very slight possibility that Botox® can cause botulism-like symptoms. Contact your Nuriss practitioner if you notice muscle weakness, urinary incontinence, vision problems, or trouble speaking, breathing or swallowing post-treatment. Nuriss practitioners will not administer the treatment to pregnant or breast-feeding woman, as the effects on the baby are not known.
Botox® is the only anti-wrinkle treatment administered by Nuriss London-based practitioners. However, other options include Dysport, Myobloc and Xeomin. Each product utilises the botulinum toxin a little differently, so they cannot be used interchangeably.
Anti-wrinkle treatments are commonly associated with smoothing facial frowns and wrinkles. Botox® is usually performed on the wrinkles between the eyebrows, the horizontal lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes. Anti-Wrinkle Injections also remove lines and wrinkles on the lips, neck, sides of the nose, and on dimpled chins.
When performed by certified practitioners in our London clinic, Nuriss Botox® can also be used to remedy more serious conditions, including:
When injected directly into the muscle, Botox® stops muscle spasms and contractions by preventing nerves from sending chemical messages to the muscles. All anti-wrinkle injections act as muscle relaxants to stop muscle contractions and therefore reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Botox® is a combination of saline and the botulinum toxin, which temporarily paralyses muscle activity. This is effective because the botulinum toxin can block certain chemical signals being sent from nerves, which cause the muscles to contract. Botox® was initially used to treat lazy eye, the inability to move the eyelids in certain ways, and cervical dystonia. In 2002, Botox® was approved for smoothing frown lines between the eyes on the forehead, and has since been used successfully to treat millions of patients.
Yes. All Nuriss Botox® treatments are administered by experienced skincare specialists in our London-based clinic. It is essential the treatment is performed by a trained, qualified practitioner, because when incorrectly injected, Botox® can spread into surrounding tissue and cause the following problems:
To avoid adverse side effects, our practitioners will only inject a very small amount of Botox® into the treatment area.
Side effects are extremely rare at Nuriss because we use the latest technology and medicine and are pleased to have some of the UK’s leading skincare therapists working with our patients. Any potential Botox® side effects are temporary and range from slight bruising around the injection area to mild headaches.
Wrinkles and frown lines are caused by the ageing process, which slows down the skin’s collagen and elastin production. Repeatedly using facial muscles throughout your life also contributes to this process.
