Botox - Anti-wrinkle Injections

Areas treated with Botox at MySkyn Clinic in Bradford

BOTOX® is the commonly used brand name for Botulinum toxin, an anti-wrinkle injection. It is a purified protein that is isolated from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum and injected in micro amounts into the small muscles of the face to relax and smooth out wrinkles.

Botox injections work by blocking the signals from the nerve endings to the tiny muscles of facial expression and prevents them contracting. This leaves the overlying skin looking smooth and wrinkle-free.

The treatment involves a doctor injecting small amounts of Botox into carefully selected muscles of the face, which are more prone to fine lines and wrinkles.


You will have a detailed consultation with our doctor and a follow-up at 2 weeks. Sometimes a ‘top-up’ injection is needed at this review. The top-up is free of charge provided you attend no later than 21 days.

Commonly treated areas are frown lines in between the eyebrows, laughter lines around the eyes (also known as ‘Crows feet’) and horizontal forehead lines.

Excessive Sweating Treatment at MySkyn Clinic in Bradford

Excessive sweating

Botulinum injections are also an effective treatment for excessive armpit sweating. After application of a numbing cream the doctor will administer multiple small amounts of Botox injections into the skin in the armpit. You will notice an improvement in sweating within 14 days in most cases.

Due to very fine nature of the needles, the procedure is virtually pain-free. Immediately afterwards you may notice some mild redness of the skin but this should subside within 24-48 hours.
