Do Botox® injections look natural?
Our patients request a natural look that means that they are still able to be expressive with their faces after having anti wrinkle injections (Botox®). They don’t want it to be too obvious that they have had ‘work done’.
New patients are often particularly cautious about avoiding the frozen look, but we administer botox doses accordingly so that patients have a subtle result that can be topped up after 2-3 weeks free of charge to ensure they are completely happy and get used to their fresher appearance.
What areas do anti-wrinkle injections work best on?
Anti-wrinkle or Botox® (botulinum toxin) injections are very popular for the following areas:
- Frown lines and wrinkles
- Forehead lines and creases between the brows
- Eye lines / crow’s feet / laughter lines
The difference between Anti-wrinkle Injections and Fillers
Both Botox® and dermal fillers are known as ‘injectibles’ because the treatments are administered by injections. At North Bristol Private Hospital, both treatments are performed by trained medical professionals.
Fillers are colourless gels that are injected into areas of facial tissue. They are targeted at areas where there is loss of volume or severe folds. They work to create a plumper, smoother appearance.
Anti-wrinkle injections use the drug Botulinum toxin. Botox® is injected into the muscles that control facial movement to prevent contractions. In doing so, they eliminate and prevent wrinkles and fine lines.

If signs of ageing are very advanced, surgery such as a facelift or blepharoplasty sometimes may be a better option to deliver on your expectations. That is why it’s so important to be treated at a facility like North Bristol Private Hospital, where experienced cosmetic surgeons are able to advise on the best ways to achieve your goals.
Absolutely. Some patients are keen to get injectables while they are undertaking surgery in different areas under general anaesthetic as they will not feel it at all. Depending on the treatment you are requesting, most injectables can be carried out while under general anesthetic during another aesthetic procedure.
