How does Botox work?

Botox has become a common treatment. People even casually mention in conversations that they’ve had done on their lunch break. It’s certainly true that Botox is a quick treatment that can be done as part of your working day, but what actually is it? Botox is a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin, produced by a type of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. This is most commonly found in forests and soil. It’s become an effective way of removing age lines and wrinkles found in the skin, as well as for a range of other quibbles and symptoms.

What happens at an appointment?

At Clapham South Dental Centre, we have effectively treated many patients with Botox in Clapham to meet individual needs. It’s injected straight into the skin, where it works to go into certain muscles around where you want to reduce lines. The activity of these muscles is reduced after the muscle movement is reduced and the nerve impulses are temporarily blocked. An appointment can be as short as 15-20 minutes.

How many appointments do I need?

One treatment of Botox is needed for a specific area you want to address. Further treatments can be organised for Botox in Clapham for any other problem areas you want to change.

How long do the effects last?

Botox isn’t a treatment that is permanent and many patients return for further Botox treatments if lines start to reappear. Depending on the individual, the effects of Botox can last between 3 to 6 months. The lines will gradually reappear from everyday body movement as you go about everyday life.


At our clinic, the cost for Botox in Clapham starts from £37.50 a month. The price of treatments varies depending on how much you’d like to be done.
