Botulinum Toxin injections

Cellite Clinic is the leading clinic for Botulinum Toxin injections in Cardiff. With more than 15 years' experience in administering Botulinum Toxin injections, your face is in safe hands.

Botulinum Toxin injections (commonly known as Botox®) are a safe and very effective way to temporarily erase frown lines, smile lines and forehead wrinkles without resorting to cosmetic surgery.

Botulinum Toxin injections are one of our most popular anti-ageing treatments for women and men. We have hundreds of customers who swear by it for treating lines, wrinkles and the signs of ageing.

Botulinum Toxin injection is the most effective treatment for temporarily smoothing out dynamic facial wrinkles – the ones that appear when you smile, frown or laugh – on the forehead, around your eyes or between the brows.

Properly administrated, the result of Botulinum Toxin treatment looks very natural. You will have a fresher, brighter and more relaxed appearance.

Botulinum Toxin is just one of our many available treatments for lines, wrinkles and ageing. A full consultation with our Medical Doctor on your first appointment will determine whether it's the right treatment for you.


Why choose Cellite Clinic for anti-wrinkle injections

Our medical team, led by Dr Harryono Judodihardjo, one of Britain's foremost dermatologist, perform thousands of Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections in Cardiff every year. They are expert in facial aesthetics and know exactly how and where to administer Botulinum Toxin to achieve the best possible results - and the most natural looking results.

If you’re considering having Botulinum Toxin injections, there are important points to consider:
  • You should only have Botulinum Toxin administered by a skilled, reputable medical practitioner with a proven track record for safety.
  • Botulinum Toxin for injection is a prescription-only medicine, hence it is important that you are treated by someone who is qualified to prescribe such a medicine, and who has the medical skills to deal with any medical complications or effects from such treatments.
  • That person should be experienced in achieving a look that is completely natural.
  • You should never base your decision on price alone.

What happens

The doctor will ask you to frown and then relax to establish where to inject the Botulinum Toxin injection. The treatment involves a small series of injections using a very fine needle. The process is relatively painless and takes around 10 minutes. Results are visible within two to fourteen days, lasting for three to four months. Subsequent treatments can last much longer. The duration of effect varies from patient to patient and may be less effective for those over 65 years of age.

How will I look immediately the injection

Most patients would look slightly pink in the areas where the injections have been administered. Some may experience a slight temporary bruising at the injection site. These are easily covered with make-up.

What kind of results can I expect

Frown lines, crow’s feet and the wrinkles at the top of the nose will be noticeably smoother. Lots of people worry that they are going to look unnatural but it’s a myth that Botulinum Toxin freezes all facial expression. In our expert hands, the results of your Botulinum Toxin injection will be noticeable but in no way unnatural. We usually advise our patients that it will last somewhere between three and six months.

Botulinum Toxin reviews

I decided to have Botox before my wedding. A friend of mine had been a patient of Cellite Clinic for more than ten years and it gave me great comfort knowing I would receive the same standard of professional care and results. The service was efficient and professional from the first call to the appointment. The Clinic was modern, clean and welcoming. Little extras such as a relaxing waiting area and access to herbal teas put me at ease. The consultation was thorough, and Dr Harry was happy to answer any questions/concerns I had. I never felt rushed. I was very happy with the results. I looked fresher and more awake. Dr Harry demonstrated the improvement in the before and after photos! I would recommend Cellite Clinic for Botox. Even though it can be a little more expensive than some other clinics, it’s worth it. Cellite gave me the best Botox results I have received. It pays to have quality! Alice, 36

I’d lost a lot of weight after my divorce, especially from my face, and I felt it had really aged me. I went to the Cellite Clinic for Botox. I’d known of the clinic for many years and several of my friends were regular and satisfied customers. There are cheaper places to get Botox in Cardiff. I had been to a few of them and not been happy with the results. In one place, I was in and out in five minutes! The consultation itself at Cellite Clinic took more than 15 minutes. I was asked what I wanted to achieve and why. Dr Harry took my medical history and then talked me through my options. He explained that Botox would not give me the lifted but youthful effect I wanted. In fact, he said that because my face was quite thin, it would look unnatural. He recommended a combination of dermal fillers and Botox, which would both plump up the skin under and around the eyes, and lift from the forehead. He explained everything thoroughly and his knowledge and expertise was evident. I was very impressed and reassured – I have no doubt that another clinic would have given me Botox and sent me on my way and the effect would have been awful! The treatment was performed with a series of quick, small injections, which stung but didn’t hurt. The effects of the dermal filler were immediate. The Botox took about a week to kick in. The end result was very natural - I would describe it as rested and healthy looking, which was exactly what I wanted. After a really tough year, it was the boost I needed to feel and look like myself again. I would never consider going anywhere else for Botox in Cardiff but Cellite Clinic. Catherine, 38

More than excellent. The very best clinic for Botox in Wales, if not all of Britain. AN, 2004

I trust Dr Harry completely. If he thinks a treatment is unnecessary he will advise accordingly. MB, 2004

Cost for Botulinum Toxin injection

Facts about Botulinum Toxin injections

Is Botulinum Toxin safe

Botulinum Toxin injection is Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved for the treatment of wrinkles and has been used medically in tiny safe doses for 20 years. It works by blocking impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines and relaxes the muscles so they do not contract.

How does Botulinum Toxin work

Botulinum Toxin injections can be used to treat all wrinkles which are the result of normal facial movement. When it is injected into a specific muscle in the face it blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscle. This causes the muscles to relax and to allow the skin to heal and for the line to smooth away. Only minute quantities of Botulinum Toxin are injected. Only the injected muscle will be affected.

Are there any side effects

Temporary bruising is the most common side effect of Botulinum Toxin. In some cases, the toxin can migrate and cause a temporary weakness of nearby muscles. In rare cases, there can be a drooping of an eyelid or asymmetry of facial expression. The risk of any side effect depends on the muscles injected. Your doctor will discuss this with you in length before your treatment.

What other conditions can Botulinum Toxin be used to treat

Botulinum Toxin injection is also used to treat Hyperhydrosis (Excessive Sweating) and to help alleviate the symptoms of migraine. Botulinum Toxin injection may also be used in conjunction with other non-surgical treatments such as skin peels and dermal fillers.

What are the limitations of Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum Toxin injections are ideal for dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles at the top of the nose, but it’s not the right solution for deeper furrows caused by sun-damage or sagging skin. You may need a dermal filler, laser treatments, or other cosmetic treatments for this.
