Girl I Want To Make You (Not) Sweat

Excessive Sweating Treatments in London

It’s July, beauties!

And this article is going to discuss the hyperhidrosis – (Excessive Sweating Treatment) at Look Lovely London.

Summer is on and, yes, miraculously, even in England…so is the heat!

But, let’s face it, excessive perspiration can cause a lot of misery this time of year.

It prevents you from going about daily activities with the usual sassy confidence.

Whether it’s cramped conferences, swaggering in a short-sleeved dress with your hot date, gripping the above handle on London Underground…or taking part in beach sports with your mates. 

Sweat issues might even keep you off (shock, horror) the dance floor at your best friend’s wedding!

No fun.

Personally, antiperspirants weren’t doing it for me.

I found myself buying mini aerosols all the time, stuffing them in my bag, blushingly, making excuses over dinner and briskly disappearing into the bathroom to spray my smelly underarms. 

The more anxious I got about it, the more I sweated and, despite the “extra strong” deodorant, I somehow always ended up with nasty marks on my pretty clothes!

(The time I wore a cream dress at my friend’s wedding in Greece was particularly embarrassing.)

So when the hot weather hit and sunny trips abroad got scheduled with my new man, I decided enough was enough and I’d make my life easier by getting botox.  

Underarm Botox injections from Look Lovely London

At Look Lovely London, the receptionist informed me that the treatment did not require the numbing cream or ice pack.

In fact, it was the most painless place to have injections!

I wasn’t too fussed, since I shave, wax and besiege that area so much anyway that momentary discomfort means nothing. 

Dr. Wilson first wiped the area clean and injected under my arms through a fine needle.

It was about 20 quick, superficial pricks and hardly noticeable. 

She said the botox would block the nerve impulses and basically stop the sweat glands from functioning over the next week or so.

More units were required for underarms than facial anti-wrinkle injections but the effect would also last longer- up to 6 to 9 months. 

Oh and the process took roughly 20 minutes and afterwards Dr. Wilson advised me not to apply anything to the area for 6 hours, or engage in strenuous exercise for 24 hours. 

I left the clinic that day, got right back to work and followed her instructions…

Within a week, I noticed less sweating and after 2 weeks, I didn’t need deodorant at all!

So now I was all set for hot London days and glamorous world travel.

This has to be hands down the most convenient procedure for summer I’ve had at the Look Lovely London clinic.

It really is for anyone, who either sweats a lot and/or works and plays hard in sticky environments or, like me, is just sick of using spray-ons over and over again. 

It also maintains those sexy clothes you wear, whether a wedding dress or a cute mini, you’ll find yourself at the dry cleaner’s way less

Finally, it keeps you confident and comfortable in the glorious sunny months! And for me that’s priceless.

So that’s all from my smooth, dry pits lovelies. 

Enjoy the swelter and remember to stay sweat-free.

My Best Friend’s Botox

Botox injections for brides

Wedding Season: Part Two.

And we’re off into the Look Lovely London sequel.

From last week’s A-list facial to this week’s spotlight treatment-

The long heralded and widely renowned Botox!

By now you’ve probably read plenty about anti-wrinkle injections on the web and been inundated with info, to the point where you might just be wondering what on earth to think or where to even start. 

Part of being slightly and justifiably daunted is Botox’s amazing knack for being used on multiple areas on the face and neck and, frankly, other parts of the body (hello armpits to stop sweat!). 

Which area to pick then? 

Decisions, decisions. 

First off, know that Look Lovely London’s Dr Wilson is happy to answer any questions regarding what procedure is optimal to fit your concern on the very day of your treatment. 

So you should always feel safe that you’re getting what’s best for you.

That said, for the purpose of playing favourites, as I love to do, especially in the season of romantic nuptials and gorgeous across-the-room gazes, my personal preference is, ta-dah

Botox for the eyes

Audrey Hepburn quote
“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,  because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” 
(Audrey Hepburn)

Take it from Audrey, guys and girls, eyes are the windows to the soul. 

So ensuring they look as awake and refreshed as possible for that moment when you look into your beloved’s oculars and say the words “I do” is sure to fulfil your wildest dream on that special day. 

Additionally, a bigger, smoother eye area preps you for wedding pictures, where we tend to squint and crease more frequently during summertime…

Especially when we’re posing tenfold with family, friends and drunken Uncle Mike.  

All right, so admittedly, when I went in to see Dr Wilson to get my eyes treated, I also had a few lines on the top of my forehead that were majorly bugging me.

But thanks to Dr Wilson’s quick and efficient procedure, along with the crow’s feet, those creases were smoothed out, so I looked five years younger days after my Look Lovely London visit.

Oh, and if you’re worried about pain, fear not readers, I used to hate needles (ah, those were the days) but each area required just a handful of quick pricks…if even that. 

You also have the option of applying their fab numbing cream, which means feeling anything isn’t much of an issue. 

Over a week later my eyes appeared wider and more doe-like. The brow lift I added to the treatment also boosted the general opening effect of my mid-face.

The entire outcome was fully noticeable after two weeks and I looked dramatically rejuvenated and more youthful in my Instagram selfies….always an added bonus.

Starry eyes extraordinaire!

So there we have it.

Whether you’re a beautiful bride or an honorary guest at the reception to follow, charm your beloved or that handsome stranger across the tent not just with your Beyonce moves on the dance floor, but with your even more impressive seductive, Botox-crafted wide-eyed look. 

Just another solution to being the fairest of them all this summer!  

And that’s all from your canny insider this time round, my sweets…

Have a fabulous May.

Yours truly,

Look Lovely London’s Mystery Client

Discover The Celebrities Secret To Getting A Smooth, Line-Free Forehead Fast

We all want to look and feel our best. Whether it’s embarking on a new, healthy diet, a fitness regime or investing in a whole new wardrobe, we all want to feel confident in the way that we look. But what happens when age starts to show on our faces and bodies?

Ageing is something we all have to face at some point. Whether it’s lines around the eyes, forehead or the mouth, there comes a time when our age shows on the place we least want it to appear – our face.

One of the first signs of ageing on a person’s face is around the forehead area. Over time, lines start to appear across the forehead which can age a person’s appearance and make them feel self-conscious.

Although ageing is something none of us relish, the great news is that help is at hand. Anti-wrinkle injections, or Botox® as it’s commonly known, was once only used by the rich and famous.

For years and years, male and female celebrities, actors, musicians and public figures have used Botox® to help to reduce the signs of aging.

Nowadays, anyone can undergo Botox® treatment and it’s a fairly commonplace procedure for many men and women who want to minimise the lines on their foreheads, and other areas on the face.

How does Botox® for the forehead help?

Over time, your skin can lose its elasticity, causing it to sag and lose its firmness. This can be due to many reasons: smoking, drinking alcohol and sun exposure being the main triggers, but even with the healthiest diet and using sunscreen religiously, natural aging will cause lines to appear across the forehead.

Botox® injections target lines on the forehead quickly and easily, reducing muscle movement across the forehead which then allows the skin to relax and recover from continual movement. Forehead lines then disappear, leaving you with a youthful, fresh and smooth appearance.

Is Botox® for the forehead safe?

Undergoing Botox® on the forehead is perfectly safe and has been used for decades and decades, often in much larger doses for neurological conditions to help to minimise over activity.

There have been no reported adverse affects of Botox® treatment and the product naturally breaks down over time and clears itself out of your muscles within three to six months of treatment.

If you’re unsure if Botox® is right for you, we also offer a ‘Baby Botox®’ package which involves a very small dose of treatment, followed by a two-week follow-up appointment where you can discuss the results with our expert team and undergo a further small dose if required.

Once they have undergone their first Botox® treatment, many of our patients return for further treatment about four months later, which is usually when gradual muscle movement starts to return to the treated area.

How should you choose a Botox® clinic?

If you’re looking to undergo Botox® on the forehead, London is home to many clinics. It can be difficult to know where to go and who to trust. Here at Look Lovely London, we always recommend that you do your research.

We also recommend that you avoid choosing a clinic that offers exceptionally cheap treatment or excessively expensive treatment. Our pricing system is clear and transparent and we are also accredited ‘Save Face’ practitioners, so you can be sure you’re in good hands.

How much does Botox® for the forehead cost?

Undergoing Botox® for the forehead involves a series of just four small injections to the forehead area. Our policy at Look Lovely London is to charge per treated area for Botox®. For one area it costs just £140 which is incredibly affordable and cost effective.

If you’re intrigued by Botox® for the forehead, before and after pictures on our website speak for themselves. Men and women of all ages have had their forehead lines treated with Botox® and have noticed a real difference, making them feel more self-confident about their appearance.

Discover How You Can Fight Excessive Underarm Sweat In Under 30 Minutes

We all like to feel confident in our own skin but sometimes our bodies can catch us out, and often at the most inopportune moments. Many of us struggle to manage the day-to-day inconvenience of excessive sweating and it can cause a person deep embarrassment, especially if they suffer from excessive sweating around the armpit area.

Managing excessive sweating in our increasingly busy, modern lives, is very difficult. We should all be able to exercise with confidence or wear a special top on a night out without feeling anxious about ending the evening with a top covered in embarrassing sweat marks.

If you find yourself reaching for the deodorant far too regularly, the great news is that there is a treatment available which targets excessive sweating, or ‘hyperhidrosis’ as it is also known.

So, what’s involved in this treatment? We’ve put together this short guide to highlight what the process entails, how it works and how much it costs.

What is involved in treating excessive sweating in the underarm area?

Surprisingly, it’s Botox®. You may well have heard about Botox® injections being used to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines on a person’s face but did you know that Botox® is also extremely effective in targeting excessive sweating?

Many patients are now discovering that Botox® is a great way of reducing activity in their sweat glands, meaning that embarrassing sweat marks on a top can now be a thing of the past.

How much does Botox® for hyperhidrosis cost?

If you suffer from excessive sweating in the armpits, treatment in the UK is readily available but costs vary from clinic to clinic. Here at Look Lovely London, we charge just £450 to treat both armpits. The procedure itself takes just 25 minutes and we’re sure that you’ll be delighted with the results.

Are there any side effects to the treatment?

When it comes to Botox® for excessive sweating treatment, side effects are usually pretty minimal. Most patients don’t experience any side effects at all other than minor bruising which can sometimes appear where the needles have been administered. But since these are on your armpits they will not be visible to anyone, meaning that you can undergo Botox® in your lunch break without anyone knowing!

What happens on the day of your treatment?

One of our experienced and highly qualified team members will talk you through the procedure in full and this will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have. Some patients who have not undergone Botox® injections before can feel slightly anxious about the procedure and our team members are all experienced in reassuring nervous patients. The procedure will not take place until you are fully confident and ready.

The underarm area will be fully cleansed and then the Botox® injections will be placed no more than 3mm into the skin. Some patients feel a small sting when the needle is inserted and others don’t feel anything at all.

You may also notice small bumps where the needle enters the skin but these usually disappear within about ten minutes.

How long do the results last for?

Generally speaking, results from Botox® injections to the underarms can last up to nine months. This is why the procedure appeals so much to patients suffering with hyperhidrosis since they are able to carry on with their normal lives and enjoy the effects of the treatment for a long time. If they then want to return for further treatment then they can opt to do so.

Once you have tried Botox® to treat hyperhidrosis, we’re pretty confident that you’ll be delighted with the results. Many patients contact us to share their hyperhidrosis ‘before and after’ stories with us, and they always say that they only wish they’d known about Botox® sooner!

If you are struggling with excessive sweating and you don’t know where to turn, give our friendly and helpful team a call today on 0203 199 8236 and book a free consultation. We’re on hand to talk you through your concerns and give you all the information you need on the procedure.

Liberate yourself from a potentially life-long issue and fight back against hyperhidrosis for good!

Find Out How To Take Years Off The Clock In Just 10 Minutes With This One Simple Trick

Let’s face it: all of us at some point in our lives have felt insecure about the way that we look. Comparing ourselves to friends, family members and, of course, celebrities, makes us focus on our flaws and dream about all the things we would change about ourselves if we could wave a magic wand.

Of course, there are many cosmetic surgeries out there which can help to address your perceived flaws, either on the face or on the body. Whether it’s a nose job, breast implants or tummy tuck, making the decision to go under the knife is a big one and should not be taken lightly. Here at Look Lovely London, we believe that a lot can be achieved by making minor adjustments to your body and face, simply by undergoing a few non-surgical procedures designed to improve your appearance and self-esteem. No long-lasting recovery needed, no hefty price tag and no scarring. Sound good? Read on.

Why are Botox® injections so popular?

There was once a time when Botox® injections were reserved only for the rich and famous, whether or not they admitted to it! But over the course of time, Botox® has become far more commonplace and is not only used to manage and reduce the signs of ageing, it can also be used to effectively treat medical problems such as excessive saliva production or sweating around the underarm area.

However, one of the most common areas which can be treated by Botox® is the eye area. When we start to age, our skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag over time, creating wrinkles and fine lines. When we smile or laugh, lines appear around the eye area and these can add years to our actual age and have a real impact on our self-esteem.

Botox® around eyes is so popular simply because it works! By undergoing a few small injections which are designed to prevent movement in the muscles around the eye area, your skin appears more smooth and soft and can make you look younger, almost immediately.

Are there any side effects associated with Botox® injections?

When it comes to Botox®, side effects are usually minimal. Some patients experience minor bruising to the treated area but this is fairly uncommon and will usually fade pretty quickly. If you’re worried about bruising, you can rest assured that most bruising can usually be easily covered up with concealer and tends not to last more than a couple of days.

You also might notice a few small bumps where the injections have been administered but these usually disappear within about ten minutes. Part of the appeal of Botox® is that it doesn’t take much time at all to administer and you can get on with the rest of your day without anyone knowing!

How quickly will results appear?

Although many patients report that they can see results in just a few days after treatment, the wrinkle-relaxing injections actually take ten days in total to take full effect. After two weeks, you will really notice how smooth and fresh your eye area looks and these results will usually last for three to four months which is when you’ll start to notice more movement in the muscles. If you want to return for further treatment after this time then you can do so. Most patients love the effects of Botox® so much that they usually choose to return for more treatment but the decision is, of course, entirely yours.

How much does Botox® cost per area?

Depending on the areas treated, price tags for Botox® can vary from clinic to clinic. Here at Look Lovely London, we charge just £140 for one area, £210 for two areas and £270 for three areas.

If you’re new to Botox® or you’re already an avid fan of anti-wrinkle injections, our London-based clinic is here for you. Give us a call today on 0203 199 8236 and find out how a few injections around your eye area can take years off your age in just a couple of weeks!

Don’t Sweat It – How You Can Make Excess Underarm Sweating A Thing Of The Past

Find out now how you can fix excessive underarm sweating with Botox and have lasting results in under a week.

Many people hear the word Botox® and they think of reduced fine lines and wrinkles and a smoother, more youthful complexion. While it’s true that this wonder treatment can shave years off your appearance, it has another extremely popular use: it can help to change the lives of people who suffer from excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis).

Excessive sweating, especially under the arms, can cause huge discomfort and embarrassment. But Look Lovely London is here to make hyperhidrosis a thing of your past. Although nobody can cure excessive sweating for good, the right treatments at the right time can help you live your life to the fullest – no sweat!

Botox® injections for sweating armpits

First of all, if you’re considering Botox® for excessive sweating anywhere, it’s critical that you choose a trained clinician to perform the procedure. Your doctor needs to have had special training in order to make the right injections with the right quantities in the right places.

Excessive sweating can occur all over the body, but the most common sites for hyperhidrosis are under the arms, under the breasts, on the forehead, and on the hands and feet. Sweating at any of these sites causes daily problems and embarrassment, but a quick Botox® procedure can completely turn things around. In fact, using Botox® to treat excessive sweating has been proven to reduce sweating by around 85% under the arms, with similarly impressive results elsewhere.

How does it work?

There’s a particular chemical in the body which is responsible for switching the sweating reflex on. Botox® works by temporarily blocking this chemical and therefore stopping or interrupting its secretion and improving or even temporarily curing hyperhidrosis at the site.

The Botox® is inserted at a very shallow level and lies just beneath the surface of the skin.

How is it done?

First, you will have an in-depth consultation with your doctor to identify the problem area(s) and talk through any questions or concerns you might have. During your treatment, a fine needle is used to skillfully inject the Botox® in specific locations, usually in a grid-like pattern.

If you’re worried about feeling the needle going in, your doctor can give you a mini ice pack to numb the areas that are going to be treated. At Look Lovely London, we also give clients ice packs to take home if they’re experiencing any discomfort after Botox® injections.

When will I notice results?

You will start to notice a difference within two to four days, but you might find that your symptoms continue to improve over the following days. The full effects of your Botox® treatment will be evident after two weeks.

How do I prepare for treatment?

With most hyperhidrosis Botox® treatments, all you need to do is show up on the day of your appointment. However, you’re having Botox® injections for sweating armpits, most clinicians recommend that you don’t shave your armpits for at least three to four days before your treatment is booked in.

How long will it last?

For most people, the effects of this treatment should last anywhere between four and 12 months. Some people find that the effects can last as long as 14 months. Plenty of studies have been performed to ensure that repeat treatment of Botox® for sweating is totally safe, so you can enjoy consistent results for as long as you want. In fact, a very high percentage of our clients here at Look Lovely London return for repeat treatment.

How to Avoid Becoming a Botox Horror Story

With any cosmetic treatment, you’re bound to be feeling a little apprehensive, particularly if this is your first treatment. It can be difficult to know who to trust and which questions to ask. If you’re a Botox® first-timer, the first thing you should do is some research.

There are now many practitioners out there who can offer Botox® treatment to consumers across the world. Here in London there are many clinics offering a range of cosmetic treatments and the prices vary dramatically. Some manage to undercut other practitioners by offering the treatment at a lower cost. Others claim to be industry leaders in the procedure, with sometimes very little goods to back it up. When it comes to cost of Botox® treatment, it can be difficult to know where to start. How much should it cost? Should the practitioners have certain accreditations or qualifications? How often should Botox® be administered?

For the reasons above, it can be daunting to know who to trust, which is why our advice is always to spend time doing your research.

This short guide will help you to make an informed decision to avoid your first Botox® experience being the subject of a Botox® horror story.

Accreditation

Without exception, accreditation and qualifications are what sets any practitioner apart from its competitors, no matter what the treatment or procedure.

Here at Look Lovely London, we take quality standards extremely seriously. That’s why our lead GP, DrDavina Wilson, has recently signed up as a fully-fledged member of Save Face. As the only regulatory body for aesthetic medicine, Save Face expects all members to comply and adhere to quality standards to ensure safe administration of all non-surgical cosmetic treatments.

DrDavina Wilson and Look Lovely London have been fully checked by Save Face to ensure that their qualifications and training are to a high standard. The Save Face team has also visited the clinic to ensure that patients experience high levels of cleanliness and safety. They also ensure that Look Lovely London provides a welcoming environment for patients to enjoy.

With around only 40 other practitioners in central London with the Save Face accreditation, Look Lovely London has been successfully awarded membership so our patients can rest assured that they are in good hands. Given its scope and importance, Save Face is also soon to be acknowledged as a vital regulatory body for patient safety by The Department of Health and Care Quality Commission.

Cost and quality of care

Here at Look Lovely London, we like to strike the right balance between quality of care and cost effectiveness. Many practitioners will offer treatment at a low cost but the quality of care can often be compromised. In order to avoid receiving poor-quality treatment, we always advise that you look into any practitioner’s previous history as well as finding testimonials from other patients. Low cost does not always mean cost effective. Price and quality of care should be of equal importance so we advise that you do not make any compromises on either.

Treatment plans

Another good reason to do your research is because Botox® can sometimes make a person’s face look “frozen”. We’ve all seen the press coverage of celebrity men and women sporting a smooth unlined face with little or no facial expression. This can happen when Botox® is administered too regularly.

Our team strongly advises against having Botox® too regularly. We want our patients to leave our clinic looking young, fresh faced and, above all, natural. If you choose a practitioner who advises very regular treatment but you’re looking for a natural look, we would urge you to discuss this with them in more detail. As the patient, you can decide when and how much Botox® treatment you have, so just remember that you are in control. Our team at Look Lovely London will never advise you to have too much treatment and we’ll happily talk through your treatment plan with you until you feel fully confident in us.

We hope that this guide will help you to choose the right practitioner for you. We’re delighted to be members of Save Face and if you’d like more information on the accreditation, just visit their website www.saveface.co.uk. Alternatively, to book an appointment with one of our fully qualified GPs, give us a call on 0203 199 8245.

What’s The Secret Behind A-Listers’ Eyes?

We’ve all seen celebrities of all ages gracing the covers of magazines looking naturally beautiful and youthful. But how do women and men of a certain age stay looking so young? Is it good genes? It might be. But, chances are, it’s probably because these household names have discovered that the secret to a youthful appearance is to get regular Botox® injections to keep them looking young, fresh-faced and attractive. But why should celebrities have all the fun? Botox® is for us all and has helped many women and men to achieve the youthful look they’ve always dreamed of, simply by having a few injections.

One of the first signs of aging is the appearance of lines around the eyes. Let’s look at how Botox® around eyes can make a big difference to a person’s face.

Why do we get lines around our eyes?

When you smile, lines form around your eyes which creates what’s known as ‘crow’s feet’ around the eye area. Botox® around eyes does not stop you from smiling, it simply makes the eye area appear fresher and brighter.  Since the lines appear around your eyes because the skin has become loose and dull over time, Botox® targets the muscles around the eye to reduce movement which then allows the skin to recover from regular movement. This creates a smooth, youthful and fresh appearance around the eye area, which can dramatically improve your look.

Where is Botox® injected around eyes?

The injections are inserted into the skin around each eye, to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. The injections are perfectly safe and can be administered quickly and with very little discomfort. Some customers have minor bumps in the skin around the eyes after the injections but these tend to disappear within about ten minutes.

Are there any side effects?

When it comes to Botox® around eyes, side effects are minimal. Most customers do not show any signs of bruising after getting Botox® injections but occasionally minor bruises can occur. However, any bruising is very short-lived and can be easily concealed with make-up until the bruise fades.

What is the cost of Botox® around eyes?

Here at Look Lovely London, we know that many first-timers to Botox® injections are nervous about having their first treatment. That’s why we wil guide you through the process and recommend a course of treatment. If once you’ve had your first treatment, you decide to return for another treatment either to the eye area or any other problem area, our rates are £140 for one area, £210 for two areas and £270 for three areas.

How often should you have Botox® around eyes?

 

Whether you’re getting Botox® around eyes or any other part of your face, we strongly recommend that you follow our advice in terms of how regularly you should have Botox® injections. You’ll have seen many famous faces which have clearly been subjected to too much Botox®. Not leaving enough time between Botox® treatments is why some faces can appear “frozen”. We believe that if we are going to make you look your absolute best then our job is to ensure that you leave our clinic looking naturally youthful. If you allow enough time between your treatments then you’ll not have to worry about ending up with a “frozen” look.

How quickly will results appear?

Botox® injections take around ten days to take full effect. You may notice some changes in the first week or so but certainly by week two you will notice how fresh and young you look. The results will last for up to about four months, by which time you may notice that muscle movement has returned to the area. Many customers then decide to come back for another treatment and research suggests that results from Botox® last longer after each consecutive treatment.

Get in touch with us today on 0203 199 8245 to discuss how we can improve your look. Our team of experienced doctors will answer any questions you might have or alleviate any fears or misconceptions about Botox®, especially if this is your first time. We are confident that once you’ve had your first Botox® treatment, you’ll never look back!

Botox® On Your Lunchbreak: A Guide For All Londoners

Getting Botox® in London, UK, has become a fairly commonplace procedure over the last few years. Because Botox® treatment is so discreet and straightforward these days, Londoners can now pop to a Botox® clinic on their lunchbreak without anyone knowing that they’ve had a minor cosmetic treatment.

If you’re looking to have Botox®, London offers a wide range of clinics to choose from so finding a clinic nearby is usually pretty easy. Our Look Lovely London Botox® clinic is based on St John’s Wood in a private and peaceful location opposite The Wellington South Hospital and Lord’s Cricket Ground. It is just 3 minutes’ walk from St John’s Wood tube station if you take the Jubilee Line, making it very easy to get to. But choosing the right clinic for Botox® isn’t just about finding the closest one to you, it’s about knowing that you’re in the hands of professionals. So, why choose Look Lovely London?

Who are we?

Here at Look Lovely London, we offer a personalised service which means that our customers have direct contact with the doctor who will be administering their Botox® treatment. The doctor offers support to the customer before, during and after treatment. This gives the customer the opportunity to ask any questions about Botox® or for the doctor to address any concerns or worries that the customer might have. Customers who have not had Botox® treatment before tend to find that they are a little nervous about having the injections for the first time, so having a one-to-one dialogue with their doctor means that any issues or concerns can be addressed prior to the treatment.

What anti-aging treatment do we offer?

Look Lovely London specialises in delivering natural-looking, long-lasting anti-aging results by using both anti-wrinkle injections (known as Botox®) and dermal fillers. We believe that these two treatments are the very best choice if you’re looking to turn back the clock in a safe and cost-effective way.

How can anti-wrinkle injections help?

Over time, your skin can lose its elasticity, which creates a loose, dull look. This happens over time as part of the natural aging process but can also be worsened with alcohol consumption, smoking, stress and sun exposure. Botox® injections work by reducing overall muscle movement which then allows your skin to relax and recover from continual movement. The treatment is applied using very thin needles to a problem area and the results can last up to six months.

Which areas can be treated with Botox®?

Pretty much any area on the face will benefit from having Botox® injections.The most common areas targeted with Botox® are forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines and smokers’ lines but some customers also opt to have Botox® in the armpits to reduce the activity of the sweat glands. This treatment is particularly effective if you suffer from excessive sweating and the results can last for up to nine months.

What to expect from your treatment

If you’re based in London, Botox® on your lunchbreak couldn’t be easier. You can simply turn up for your appointment and once you’ve had your preliminary consultation with your doctor, they can then get to work, targeting your problem area or areas. The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and then small injections will be administered to the skin, no more than 3mm into the skin. Some customers feel a small sting when the needle is inserted while others barely feel a thing.

You may notice a few small bumps where the injections have taken place but these usually disappear within ten minutes. And that’s it. You can head back to work without your colleagues suspecting a thing!

How much does Botox® cost?

Our clinic offers a flexible pricing system whereby you can choose to treat one area (£140), two areas (£210) or three (£270).

There are many perks to living in London; Botox® on your doorstep is definitely one of them! Call our team today on 0203 199 8245 to book your introductory appointment and discover how Botox® can make an instant difference to your overall appearance after just one visit.

Side Effects of Botox Injections: The Myth-busting Guide for First Timers

When considering Botox® treatment, many first timers are put off having the treatment because they have heard about possible side effects that can occur. But what are the side effects of Botox® injections?
When it comes to side effects, Botox® injections are extremely low risk if you put yourself in the hands of the professionals.
Let’s have a look at some of the most common questions asked about the side effects of Botox® injections and explain why Look Lovely London is the right choice for you.

Are Botox® injections painful?

There is little truth in the myth that Botox® injections are painful and that the treated area can remain sore for a time afterwards. Of course, there are always rare exceptions but, on the whole, most customers do not experience any pain when they undergo treatment. Our highly qualified and experienced consultants at Look Lovely London are experts in administering pain-free Botox® injections. Some patients feel a slight sting when the needle is inserted but this discomfort is short-lived and usually comes with absolutely no pain at all afterwards.
Some customers can experience mild stiffness or headaches for a short time after the treatment, but this is pretty rare.

Do Botox® injections cause swelling?

Another worry that many first timers have is that they will experience swelling or redness around the treated area after the injections are administered. Occasionally some people do see minor swelling after a treatment, but the best way to minimise the chance of this is to choose a clinic with a fantastic track record of delivery risk-free Botox® treatments. At Look Lovely London we have special ice packs on hand which can be applied after the injections that help to prevent the appearance of swelling or bruising.

Can Botox® injections make you sick?

Very occasionally, some customers can experience symptoms similar to those of a common cold, but these are rare cases and, should this occur, the symptoms usually only last for a few days after the treatment. Most of our customers do not experience any sickness after their treatment but if you have any concerns, we will guide you every step of the way.

Will it be obvious that you’ve had Botox® treatment?

Perhaps the most common myth about Botox® injections is that they will make your face look ‘frozen’ and that it will be immediately obvious that you have undergone a cosmetic treatment. Avoiding the ‘frozen’ look is entirely down to the skill of the consultant and our team at Look Lovely London is experienced and committed to making sure each of our customers leaves us looking natural. Nobody will guess that you’ve had Botox® injections. At worst, you might have a few friends asking which revolutionary brand of makeup you’ve discovered that has made you look so youthful and rested!
The main reason that many high-profile celebrities have ended up with a ‘frozen’ look is that they haven’t left enough time between treatments. We always recommend that our clients leave the correct amount of time, usually 3-6 months between Botox® injections, to make sure that they maintain their natural, youthful look. When you have your consultation we will design a treatment plan tailored to your needs and discuss the best time for you to have your next treatment, to help you maintain a look that you’re proud of.
The good news is that Botox® treatment is cumulative, so you may even find that after a few treatments you no longer need regular injections to stay looking your best.
The majority of the myths about the side effects of Botox® injections are based on extreme cases. The reality is that with most cases of Botox®, the side effects are entirely minimal. At Look Lovely London, the most common side effect of Botox® treatment experienced by our customers is simply an immediate improvement in self-confidence!
