'I have Botox to treat my frown lines between my eyebrows and lines coming up each side of my eyes. Treatment is quick, painless and explained very clearly each step of the way. Effects take between 2-3 weeks to become fully apparent and I am always very pleased with the results, it completely smoothes out the lines that I am concerned about. Many thanks Persona for my treatments.'

Botox treatments are charged by different areas of the face and prices start at £220, which is less than £2 a day. The upper face is typically broken into 3 main areas, the eyes and the upper and lower forehead. Botox is also used in the lower face, around the lips, the jawline and the neck area. Individual areas of concern can be treated such as around the eyes or you can have multiple areas treated including the Botox Face Lift that treats the whole face & neck. All prices will be discussed and confirmed with you at your one to one free of charge consulation.
Botox is clinically proven to prevent and correct the signs of ageing in particular lines and wrinkles of the forhead, frown and crows feet . However this treatment is also very effective at lifting the skin and at Persona one of our most popular requests is the ‘Botox Brow Lift’. We also use Botox around the lower face to lift the jowels, define the jawline and soften lines around the lips, commonly called ‘smokers lines’.
Botox works by relaxing certain facial muscles that cause lines, wrinkles and the skin to droop. Treatment is by injection, is not painful and performed in a couple of minutes. The results are seen usually with a week after treatment although this may vary in individuals. This is the ultimate lunch time procedure as any mild redness that appears after treatment resolves in about 15 mins. Our clients return to us time and time again because Botox® makes them look and feel good, increases their confidence and significantly changes peoples’ perception of their age. Botox® has become so renowned due to its dramatic anti-ageing effects and ability to rejuvenate the skin that you will look fresher and younger without your friends and family being able to put their finger on why!
Botox® is a brand name for a highly purified derivative protein from the drug botulinium toxin type A. There is nothing new about botulinum toxin - in fact it has been used cosmetically and medically for about 30 years, and clinical research has proved that it is extremely safe when administered by a trained professional. Other brands of Botulinium Toxin used at Persona are Vistabel, Azzalure, Dysport, Bocotour and Xeomin.
Botulinum Toxin can be used to:
Lifts & firms the skin Reduce crows feet & rejuvenate eyes
Lifts brows reducing excess skin Reduce forhead & frown lines
Lifts corner of the mouth Reduce lip lines
Lifts Jowels & defines jaw line Reduce lines & wrinkles throughout the face

It is safely used in conjunction with many other anti-ageing treatments such as Dermal Fillers, Skin Peels and Laser and IPL to enhance the results and longevity of your treatments.
Excessive Sweating / Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis is a clinical condition that causes the sweat glands to over perspire causing social embarressment, limits personal style and can destroy self confidence. However, it can easily be treated through a series of small injections into the muscles surrounding the sweat glands blocking the actions of the nerve endings thus preventing the glands from producing sweat. Botox can be used on the forehead, underarms, palms of the hands and soles of the feet with results lasting from 8-10months.
