At our Surrey clinic, all Botox wrinkle relaxing injections will only ever be administered by a highly-trained practitioner.
Wrinkle relaxing injections, commonly known as Botox, are the world’s most popular anti-ageing procedure due their effectiveness at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. Botox works by stopping nerve cells sending signals to muscles, helping them relax and in turn, improving the appearance of wrinkles.
Here at the Light Touch Clinic, we have a deep understanding of facial anatomy. You can be sure that our highly trained practitioners will leave your skin looking naturally refreshed and full of expression and mobility thanks to our intuitive administration technique.

Botox is also an excellent treatment for bruxism (teeth grinding) and reducing hyperhidrosis (excess sweating).

Wrinkle relaxing injections block the chemical in the skin responsible for muscle contraction, thereby temporarily smoothing out wrinkles. At the Light Touch Clinic our wrinkle relaxer of choice is Botox® a naturally occurring protein from the bacteria clostridium botulinum.
Wrinkle relaxing injections can also be used to reduce bruxism (teeth grinding), hyperhidrosis (excess sweating) and the appearance of visible neck bands (platysma bands) that can cause the appearance of turkey neck.
We actively encourage patients to seek independent medical advice before having wrinkle relaxing injections. All of our Botox treatments are carried out by experienced medical practitioners after a thorough consultation process.
Which areas of the face are suitable for wrinkle relaxing injections?
What does the treatment involve?
Following a full consultation your Light Touch Clinic practitioner will analyse your face and administer wrinkle relaxing injections directly into the muscles that cause wrinkles.
Does it hurt?
The procedure is largely pain free other than the slight pricking of the needle. You may experience some soreness in the injection sites immediately after treatment but this is usually short-lived.
What will my skin look like afterwards?
You may experience some mild bruising in the injection sites.
What happens after treatment?
We suggest you avoid strenuous exercise or any activity that may increase the blood pressure to your face for at least 24 hours.
How long before I see results?
Results are generally visible after 4 days and peak at 10 days. We ask our patients to attend a follow-up appointment 2 weeks post procedure to ensure we have achieved the best possible results.
What are the risks and complications?
All non-invasive procedures carry a small amount of risk which is why they are only administered after a face-to-face consultation with one of our practitioners during which a full assessment will be carried out and a full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
Are wrinkle relaxing injections my only option?
No, there are several other treatments that may be more suitable for your skin concern including Dermal Filler Injections, INTRAcel or Dermaroller Micro-needling. Before you undergo any of our treatments you will be invited for a consultation with one of our practitioners who will analyse your skin and help you decide which treatment option is most suitable.
