A non-invasive treatment without the need for surgery, Botox is one of the best known and popular remedies for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. When injected in small doses Botox relaxes the facial muscles that cause the wrinkles, visibly smoothing the appearance of your skin to give your complexion a more youthful look.
Santi is one of London’s leading Botox clinics, so you can feel assured that you will be treated by an expert with extensive botox experience.
Recommended: Botox injections can be administered every 4 months, reducing in frequency over time.
What is Botox?
Botox is a protein derived product that is used as an anti-ageing and wrinkle treatment to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and dynamic wrinkles.
You may also hear Botox being referred to as BTXA, Dysport, Myobloc, Neurobloc, Xeomin, Botox Cosmetic, and Vistabel.
How does Botox work?
Botox treatment explained in three steps.
1. When you are injected with botox it relaxes your muscles temporarily by blocking the signals from your nerves to the injected muscle.
2. Once your nerve impulses have been blocked, Botox temporarily stops your muscle from contracting.
3. As a result, your muscles relax and your fine lines and wrinkles become less noticeable and your complexion, smoother, softer and more youthful in appearance.
Is Botox safe?
Botox treatment has been used in medicine for over 50 years. However, it came to the fore in the 1980s when ophthalmologists noticed that wrinkles and fine lines disappeared when they treated patients with strabismus.
Since the early 1990s Botox has been used to successfully treat children with cerebral palsy for muscle contracture and other medical conditions. Botox has been around for a long time and has been used as an effective wrinkle treatment for over 15 years.
Today, Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for reducing the appearance of dynamic fine lines and wrinkles. It is also one of the most researched medicines in the world.
Are there any long term consequences?
Medically, Botox has been used to treat different muscular disorders for over 20 years and despite the fact that the dose is often higher for medical purposes, no long-term side effects have been found.
How long will a Botox treatment last for?
After your first treatment, you will see the full results within two weeks; however, you may see the effects within a few days – the results vary from person to person.
Will Botox work for me?
According to clinical trials, 90% of patients noticed improvements in their fine lines and wrinkles, making Botox a highly popular wrinkle treatment.
What else has Botox been used for?
Botox isn’t just used as a wrinkle treatment. It’s a reputable medicine that is used to effectively treat people with a variety of neuromuscular disorders. Botox can be used to treat the following conditions:
Severe back and neck pain
Eyelid spasms and eye twitching (Blepharospasm)
Crossed eyes (Strabismus)
Chronic sweating under the arms
Muscle tightness in the fingers, wrists and elbows
Who can have Botox?
People who have Botox treatment often want to feel their best and look younger. Santi can treat both men and women; however, men often require a slightly higher botox dose.
Prior to your Botox treatment at Santi Spa, you will receive a thorough consultation with your doctor who will be able to advise you accordingly.
Does Botox hurt and will I be able to function OK afterwards?
Most people say Botox injections are fairly painless. The needle is extremely fine and there’s no need for anaesthetic.
You also don’t need to worry about being immobile for the rest of the day – many people who have Botox treatments are able to function perfectly and continue their day as normal. So, if you have to go back to work on the same day as your treatment, Botox won’t cause you a problem.
What are the side effects?
Negative side effects
Side effects of botox are rare; however, some people may experience a mild pain and/ or tenderness where the treatment was injected. Slight mild swelling may also occur; however, this usually goes within two days.
Other very rare side effects include slight bruising and temporary drooping of the eyebrows or eyelids – don’t worry, the drooping is not permanent and can be treated.
Positive side effects
In addition to this, there may also be some pleasant side effects, such as a reduction in tension style headaches if you’ve chosen to have Botox treatment in your forehead.
How many Botox treatments can I have? Is it possible to have too many treatments?
The effects of Botox usually wear off after about three to four months; so, every three months is the minimal amount of time you should wait until your next treatment.
With regular treatments, some patients have reported longer lasting results.
Providing you wait at least three months between treatments, you can continue to be treated regularly without any harm being caused.
If I stop having Botox treatments will my face look worse than before?
Not at all. Once you stop having Botox, your lines will gradually return to how they looked prior to your last treatment. Botox does not make your lines more prominent if you stop treatments.
Will expression be lost in my face?
Contrary to popular belief, you will not lose expression in your face. However, you will notice, depending on which areas are treated, a reduction in the amount of movement you will be able to perform – you might not be able to frown or raise your eyebrows as strongly
Prior to your treatment, one of our specialist Botox doctors will discuss your specific requirements with you if you have any further questions or concerns related to your treatment.
Is Botox acceptable?
Many clients come to Santi in their late 20s for Botox as they see Botox as a preventative measure against wrinkle formation. Some people need longer to decide whether Botox is the right wrinkle treatment for them.
How do I find a good Botox clinic?
When you decide to have Botox treatment, most doctors will offer you a free consultation prior to your treatment. It’s important that you feel comfortable and your injecting physician is qualified and understands your requirements.
At Santi, all our doctors have been chosen primarily because they balance their time between clinical work, research and aesthetics. It’s this combination that gives surgeons at Santi an excellent balance and a better perspective.
It’s also important to make sure that post-treatment you are offered a follow-up appointment two weeks after your first Botox treatment. It is essential that you are happy with the results. If you aren’t, your doctor should offer you a complimentary treatment.
Is there anyone who is not suitable for Botox?
If you are suffering from any of the following conditions you may not be suitable for Botox treatments.
You have an infection in the area you’d like to be treated with Botox
You’re allergic to Botox injections
You have an extreme musculoskeletal condition such as Eaton Lambert Syndrome or Myasthenia Gravis
You’re currently pregnant or breast feeding
You are under the age of 18
If any of the following applies to you, please consult your doctor before you have Botox
You have a blood clotting condition such as Haemophilia
You are taking anticoagulant or anti-inflammatory medicines such as Asprin, Warfarin or Heparin
You are taking herbal medicine containing St John’s Wort, Gingiko Bilboa or Vitamin E
You have chronic problems with your breathing
You have had a stroke or Bell’s palsy in the past
If anything on this list applies to you, it does not necessarily mean that you are not suitable for Botox, it just means that you need to be more cautious.
Before your treatment, your doctor will discuss everything with you in depth to avoid any complications or the possibility of negative side effects occurring.
If necessary, your doctor will also be able to discuss other wrinkle treatment options with you that may be more suitable.
What aftercare advice should I follow?
Once you have had your Botox treatment there are certain exercises you can do to improve results. This is what you can and can’t do after a treatment of Botox:
Straight after your treatment, you should try to contract your muscles in the treated area for up to four hours. This exercise will help the Botox to reach all of the muscle.
For 48 hours after your treatment, you should avoid touching the area of your face that was treated.
Alcohol and intense exercise should be avoided for a period of 48 hours.
If you experience bruising, you might find that Arnica cream will help.
If you experience pain, you can take paracetamol after your treatment.
What kind of wrinkles can Botox treat?
Your facial lines and wrinkles can be treated successfully with a variety of anti ageing treatments such as Botox or Dermal Fillers.
If you have dynamic wrinkles – lines that become more prominent when you’re frowning, smiling or showing emotion – Botox could be the right treatment for you.
However, if your wrinkles are static – lines that appear when your face is not animated – dermal fillers will be a more effective option.
Crow’s feet wrinkles
These are the wrinkles that appear in the outer corners of your eyes and can become more prominent from excessive exposure to the sun or when you’re laughing and smiling.
Frown wrinkles (Glabella wrinkles)
Frown wrinkles are the vertical lines that appear in between your eyebrows and are often caused by frowning, over thinking, anxiety and anger.
Forehead wrinkles are the horizontal lines that can appear as dynamic wrinkles when you’re surprised or showing empathy.
Lip area wrinkles
When you smoke regularly, fine lines can form above your lips. Providing they haven’t become static lines, Botox can effectively help to reduce their appearance. Although the forehead, eye area and skin around your lips are the most common places for the treatment of Botox®, you can also effectively treat gummy smile, chin puckering, vertical neck bands and squint lines at the bridge of the nose.
From £200 - Course of 3 - £500
This treatment smoothes wrinkles and revitalises the skin, also enhancing your lips or facial contours. Restylane works quickly for instantaneous results and minimal downtime.

What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, boost your complexion and add extra definition to your features such as your lips, chin and cheeks. They’re made of naturally occurring substances such as collagen and hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in your body.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your body and is vital for regulating cell growth and renewing your skin cells.
As a result it is now a key ingredient in many anti-wrinkle treatments which has resulted in the media suggesting hyaluronic acid is the “key to the fountain of youth”.
Scientifically speaking, hyaluronic acid works by carrying nutrients to different areas of your body and regulating the water balance in your skin.
How does a Dermal Filler treatment work?
Dermal fillers are injected into or under your skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give ageing skin a more youthful appearance.
The treatment works by boosting your body’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid through a series of small injections using a very fine needle.
Restylane is the trade name given to the soft gel that is injected into your skin – in other words the dermal filler product. The gel that is injected is non-permanent and tissue friendly so it will work in harmony with your body..
Do Dermal Fillers give the same results as Botox?
Although Botox and dermal fillers are both wrinkle treatments, dermal fillers work better on static wrinkles whereas Botox treatment is more suited to dynamic wrinkles. Dermal fillers can also add volume and definition to your lips and cheeks as well as improving your complexion.
Static wrinkles are fine lines, creases or wrinkles that are still visible when your facial muscles are relaxed.
Dynamic wrinkles are fine lines, creases or wrinkles that become more prominent or are only visible when your face is animated; for example, when you’re smiling, laughing or frowning.
How quickly will I see the result?
You will notice the results straight away after your first treatment.
How long will my Dermal Filler treatment last for?
You can expect your dermal filler treatment to last for six to 12 months depending on your skin type, lifestyle and treatment type. Typically, lip enhancement treatments last for approximately six months.
What are the benefits of a Dermal Filler treatment?
Dermal fillers allow you to subtly enhance your complexion as your skin ages so you can have a more youthful appearance. The treatment is essentially an easy way to get rid of wrinkles, skin folds and other skin imperfections such as scars. You’ll notice the results after just one treatment and it will last for six to twelve months. Dermal fillers essentially give you back your youthful complexion without altering your expression.
Are Dermal Fillers safe?
The dermal filler we use at Santi is Restylane, which is the trade name used for a variety of injectable dermal filler treatments that are sourced from hyaluronic acid.
Restylane has been used as a dermal filler for over 12 years and is one of the most scientifically documented hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers in the world. According to medical experts, including research published in the journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, dermal filler treatment using Restylane is a safe, non-surgical solution for facial rejuvenation.
Since 1996, over 10 million dermal filler treatments have been performed with Restylane and scientists have found that reactions to the product are rare. However, some people have had reactions to dermal filler lip treatments such as redness, itching, slight swelling and tenderness. These symptoms usually disappear after a few days.
Will Dermal Filler Treatments make look unnatural?
Dermal fillers are not permanent and will not radically alter your appearance. However, they will help to give your skin a boost, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and enhance your existing features.
Prior to your treatment, you will have a thorough consultation with one of our doctors so you will have a clear idea of what to expect from the results after your treatment.
Are Dermal Filler treatments suitable for anyone?
Most people are suitable for dermal filler treatments; however, if you have any of the following conditions, dermal fillers may not be suitable.
Any form of skin disease or skin related problems
Inflammation of the skin
Pregnant or breast feeding women
Any medical conditions affecting your immune system
Prior to your dermal filler treatment, you will have chance to discuss your medical history with a doctor at Santi who will be able to tell you if you are suitable for the treatment.
Will I need a local anesthetic?
To ensure minimal discomfort, a local anaesthetic cream can be applied to the injected area prior to treatment. Although this is not necessary, it is recommended. The dermal fillers we use at Santi typically contain a small amount of anaesthetic to provide a numbing effect to the treatment area and reduce pain.
What areas of my body can be treated with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal filler treatment is used to smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and skin folds. It can also be used to plump up lips and add more shape and definition to the cheeks and chin. You can also use dermal fillers to improve the overall appearance of your complexion and help your skin to look younger.
Dermal filler treatments can be used for the following:
Frown lines (glabella lines)
Frown lines are the vertical lines that appear in between the eyebrows. Dermal fillers will respond well to static or dynamic fine lines and wrinkles.
Lines around your mouth (the nasolabial folds)
You can have dermal filler injections on the lines running from your mouth to your nose to help create a smoother, younger and more flawless complexion.
Dermal fillers respond particularly well to static and dynamic wrinkles, so If the lines around your eyes are quite prominent, dermal fillers may be a better alternative to Botox.
Dermal fillers also work as an effective lip enhancement treatment. The results are non permanent; however, you will notice a difference straight after your first treatment.
Dermal fillers can be injected into your cheeks to give them a natural lift.
You can use dermal fillers to add more definition around your chin and to tighten up sagging skin.
In addition to this, dermal fillers can also be used to treat volume loss in the back of the hands, and to improve skin quality around the neck and decolletage.

Santi uses the latest in laser equipment meaning your treatment is safe and effective. We also have a team of qualified, friendly experts who will answer any questions you may have about this treatment.
What are varicose and spider veins?
Varicose veins are blue or purple enlarged veins that are raised above the skin. They usually occur in the legs due to standing and sitting for long periods of time. If left untreated over time, varicose veins may lead to health problems in the future.
Spider veins (so called because they resemble a spider’s web) are like varicose veins but smaller and lie close to the skin’s surface, usually on the legs and face. They are less prominent than varicose veins but also more common, affecting millions of people worldwide.
What causes varicose and spider veins?
Varicose veins can be genetic, hormonal (common in pregnancy) or a sign of weak or damaged valves. The valves in your veins should prevent blood flowing backwards, however if blood flows back to the vein and collects there, this clogs the vein, making it appear bigger than before. If you have many varicose veins, it’s important to treat them as they may continue to get worst.
Spider veins occur for the same reasons, or may also be a result of sun exposure, lifestyle and injuries.
These veins can be unsightly and embarrassing. But by treating them, you’re not only helping to regain body confidence, but also preventing a build-up of veins which can lead to health problems if left untreated.
How does laser therapy work?
Laser therapy uses brief pulses of laser light to destroy smaller blood vessels. Blood inside the vein coagulates and is then encouraged to flow back to the veins which are deeper below your skin’s surface. This is where the blood should usually be. The light is later absorbed harmlessly by your body.
Does laser vein treatment hurt?
Generally laser treatment should not hurt and you should be able to return to work afterwards. Depending on the size and depth of the vein, some people may experience a stinging or tightening sensation during treatment. Discomfort of course varies from person to person.
How long does laser vein treatment take?
Laser treatments typically last between 15 – 30 minutes. You should be able to continue with your day afterwards. Santi is open during the evenings and weekends, so you can even schedule a session after work.
How many laser vein treatments are required?
This depends on your requirements as an individual. About one to four courses of treatment is a typical. If your veins are larger, then you may require some further sessions. Please contact us for a free consultation to see what treatment plan will be best for you.
How quickly will I see results?
You should begin to notice an improvement typically after two weeks, though some patients report seeing their results after one session. Final results may not become fully apparent for six to 12 weeks. This is because it takes some time for your body to reabsorb the coagulated blood. After this period the results should be significantly clearer looking skin.
How long does recovery take
You should be able to continue your day right away, though we advise that you avoid intense physical exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
Are there any side effects to laser vein treatment?
There shouldn’t usually be side effects, though again this varies according to the individual. Some people experience redness in the skin, though this should improve after 24 hours. If larger veins have been treated, then there could be some discoloration which would last for a few weeks.
What about after care?
If you experience a sore sensation after your treatment, an ice pack can help reduce symptoms. Any soreness should reduce after a couple of days.
Further courses of laser vein therapy may be suitable if you suffer from recurrent varicose and spider veins.

What is laser hair removal?
Laser treatment works by effectively removing unwanted hair from your body using a long pulse laser to prevent the hair follicles from producing more hair.
How many laser hair treatments will I need?
Most people need between six and eight laser hair removal treatments over a period of eight to 12 weeks. It’s necessary to have more than one session, even if your hair is fine, because hair grows in cycles. The amount of treatments required will depend on where on your body you choose to have laser hair removal.
Within three weeks of a laser hair removal treatment the treated hair should start to shed. You will then have a smooth, hair-free period for a few weeks until the next cycle of hair starts to grow.
Prior to your treatment, your therapist will discuss your requirements with you and let you know how many treatments you will need in order to achieve your desired results.
How long has laser hair removal been used for?
Laser hair removal was first used cosmetically in 1997.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal treatments work by damaging hair follicles to stop future hair growth. When the laser light is exposed to the hair and skin, the light is absorbed by the pigment in your hair. Because the laser light targets pigment, laser hair removal works best on darker hair as opposed to fair hair which can’t absorb as much heat.
Who can have laser hair removal and where on my body can I have it?
Anyone can have laser hair removal; however, the laser works best on pale skin with dark, coarse hair. The most common areas to be treated are the legs, underarms, bikini line, arms, abdomen, lips, chin, face, neck, buttocks, thighs, toes and chest.
Is hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal treatment can remove the majority of hair in the treated area/s; however, contrary to what some laser clinics may say, laser treatment does not guarantee that all the hairs will permanently be removed. Very fine hairs that are the same colour as your skin may well remain after the treatment. If you choose to have a series of treatments, there’s a good chance that you will be able to remove hairs by 100%.
If you do have lots of fine hair, electrolysis is also another highly effective hair removal treatment which works by removing one hair at a time. Electrolysis can be particularly effective for removing fine hairs around your lips and eyebrows.
Is it possible to reduce hair density?
Yes. If you don’t want to remove all the hair in a particular area, it is possible to reduce the hair density. You can achieve this by having three to four laser hair removal treatments as opposed to the standard six to eight. For the best results, you should space your sessions out leaving approximately 12 weeks between treatments. This way your laser therapist will be able to effectively assess how much hair needs to be removed.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
You will experience pain similar to an elastic band snapping on your skin; however, it is not as painful as waxing. Pain will also only be felt when the laser is exposed to the skin and most people do not need anaesthetic; however, for more sensitive patients, anaesthetic is an option.
If for some reason, you don’t feel any pain during the treatment, this could be because the laser is set too low for the results to be permanent.
Are there any laser hair removal treatment side effects?
After you have had laser hair removal treatment, you may experience some of the following temporary side effects: swelling around the hair follicle, itching, redness and feelings of numbness. Please consult your doctor if any of these side effects last any longer than three days.
The following side effects are extremely rare and will only occur when the laser has been used incorrectly: bruising, purpura, hyperpigmentation and crusting/ scab formation.
All laser therapists at Santi are skin treatment specialists with years of experience in laser hair removal.
What causes excessive hair growth?
If you do have excessive or abnormal hair growth, although laser treatment will help to reduce the amount of hair or get rid of it completely, it is important to consult a doctor before your treatment to rule out any medical conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which can cause extra hair to grow.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Absolutely. Laser hair removal was researched for over 20 years before it was used for commercial purposes in 1997. All laser hair removal practitioners at Santi are skin care experts with years of experience in laser hair removal. Prior to your treatment you will have a patch test to ensure you don’t receive any unwanted side effects.
