Botox Treatments

Botox Treatments

Botox injections are used to treat wrinkles and fine lines such as forehead lines, frown lines & crows feet. Botulinum Toxin has been used in hospitals around the UK since 1977 and within the cosmetic industry for over 30 years. It is now used in more than 70 countries with millions of treatments worldwide.

Dr Macmillan will use Botox anti wrinkle injections: the original product on the market with a large emphasis on safety. It is the result of years of studies and has been used extensively in medicine. This particular brand of botulinum toxin was first cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1989, making it the first approved form of wrinkle injection, in the world to target wrinkles and fine lines. Botox injections are a natural, purified protein used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. This injectable treatment is an established brand name and can also be used to treat conditions like hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and even a wide jaw.

Within the NHS, Botox is used to treat conditions including eye squints, neck spasms, migraine, back ache, cerebral palsy, bladder instability and anal fissures.
Dr Macmillan uses only Botox and not other cheaper brands (which have different safety profiles and may wear off faster).

Cosmetic treatments include

  • frown lines
  • crows feet
  • forehead lines
  • gummy smile
  • neck bands (platysmal bands)
  • Nefertiti jaw definition
  • sweating (under arms, hands, brow and head)
  • wide jaw

Wrinkle Treatment

Facial wrinkles can be reduced or removed by injections of Botox. I use only the top of the range product made by Allergan – the only Botulinum toxin that can genuinely be called Botox. It has the best safety profile and lasts the longest in my view, giving you the best results.

Botox can treat angry frown lines, ageing crows feet at the side of your eyes and forehead lines.

Frown Lines

Frown lines between your eyebrows may make you appear angry, frustrated and older than you are. It’s very simple to smooth these lines away with Botox and fillers, so come for a free consultation.

Crows Feet

Ageing lines at the side of your eyes – crows feet – can make you look prematurely old and also they can become very obvious and white in people who tan. A five minute Botox treatment can smooth these lines – lets have a chat!

Neck Bands

The ageing neck can really spoil your looks so with a combination of Botox and skin quality improvement treatments – such as Dermapen skin needling – you can make a big difference to rejuvenate your neck. Come for a chat and we can discuss a treatment plan.

Gummy Smile

If you are conscious that too much gum shows when you smile, come for a consultation. Botox can really improve this problem and give you confidence to smile.

Cobbled Chin

Your chin can become cobbled as your muscles become over active. Botox into the mentalis muscle (chin muscle) will relax and smooth your chin. A 5 minute procedure with no down time.


Sweating is one of those uncontrollable, socially embarrassing problems. It marks your clothes, and for some people the odour is terrible. But the amazing thing is, you no longer have to suffer!

Treatment with Botox injections under your arms could change your life by stopping the sweating and the smells.

Arm Pit Smells

Smelly arm pits have got to be one of the most terrible problems that otherwise healthy people can suffer from. It can curb your social life and isolate you. So if you want to do something about it come for a consultation for Botox injections – it really can stop the smell, stop sweating and change your life.

Eyebrow Lift

What a difference a modest lift of the eyebrows makes. You will look much more awake and your eyes less tired, all adding to a youthful look and achieved using Botox injections.
