Botox in Birmingham

WE ARE EFFACE
Cosmetic aesthetic treatments are a glorious solution to ageing – but only if performed by medical professionals.
It doesn’t take a genius to spot a frozen botox or fillers horror in the headlines. But the reality is that a vast majority should and will go undetected.
With our philosophy, your friends and family won’t suspect. Instead, they’ll struggle to to put their fingers on why you look so fresh and rested.
Remember, not all expressions cause wrinkles so a good botox regime will only aim to limit extreme movement. So there’s no need to be completely frozen and unnatural-looking.
Don’t worry – this is a startled bunny and trout-pout free zone.
We only employ qualified medical and healthcare professionals which means they are:
- Licensed to practice and prescribe
- Prepared for complications
- Fully insured
- knowledgeable of anatomy and relevant medical protocols
- Be accountable to a professional governing body like ACE
- On a register to show they meet set standards in training and skill.
We only champion treatments that have been scientifically proven to work.
If the research doesn’t support the procedure, cream, serum, lotion or potion then you simply won’t find it here.

ENOUGH FALSE PROMISES
A cosmetic that ‘claims’ to have medicinal properties.
DON’T BE FOOLED
It’s a term created by beauty industry marketers.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t even recognise the term.
The truth is only medicines can affect the structure or function of the body.
Therefore, any beauty cream lotion, serum or potion that makes such claims must undergo clinical trials and be classed as a medicine, if successful.
However, some beauty products may contain ingredients that are known to have beneficial effects.
They are often ineffective because the amount they contain or the method of delivery.
WHAT ARE THE DANGERS?There are two dangers if cosmetics aren’t tested properly: either you’ll be cheated out of your money or, in the unlikely event that they do have medicinal properties, they could potentially be dangerous in wrong doses.
HOW DO THEY GET AWAY WITH THIS?Clever marketing companies will use unclear language such ‘helps,’ ‘could reduce’ or the “appearance of’ to protect themselves.
Don’t let them waste your money.
Insist on only evidence-backed, regulated methods of skincare from fully trained healthcare professionals.

KICK ASS AESTHETICS
Does botox actually erase wrinkles?
But we’ll explain exactly what this amazing treatment does below. Think of it as a preventative rather than a restorative treatment. Above all, remember that botox is NOT a miracle iron that totally effaces deeply etched-in lines and wrinkles.
Therefore, the earlier you get botox, the more preventative its effects — explaining the rise of twenty somethings having botox. More on this in our free guide.
However, don’t throw in the towel just yet if you already have deep wrinkles!
In the guide, we also explain when you should start botox, and – if you’re a little late to the party – how stubborn wrinkles can be dramatically improved with a mixture of treatments including botox.
How does botox actually work?
Firstly, Wrinkles form when we make strong expressions that crease the skin over time.
Using botox continuously actually trains your muscles not to make these strong expressions.
Secondly, not all expressions will cause wrinkles. Therefore, there’s no need to be completely frozen and unnatural-looking.
Botox weakens specific muscles
It’s common sense that the longer you limit the use of a muscle, the weaker it becomes over time.
However, weakening muscles doesn’t mean that your entire face will wither away.
We expertly inject into areas, such as an over-active frown, where movement or bulk needs to be reduced. Additionally, the dosages are tiny and the effect is localised to each injection site.
Incredibly, our faces are filled with 42 muscles which means that just limiting several muscles will not stop all facial expressions – that’s just a myth.
What’s more, the effects are reversible too – when botox is stopped the muscle will regain strength over time.
Will people know if I’ve had botox?
It is very unlikely.
Because, it’s yet another myth that the average person can spot botox usage. Even trained professionals will struggle to see expertly administered botox.
It doesn’t take a genius to spot a frozen botox horror in the headlines. However, the reality is that a vast majority of botox users will go undetected.
Instead, people will stop saying that you look tired or, better still, say you look fresh!
Is botox safe?
Botox is generally considered safe if used in tiny amounts and administered by a licensed and trained medical professional.
However, like all medicines, it could have side effects in a small percentage of cases. (more on this in our guide- download it for free below).
Above all, remember that botox isn’t new and untested. It was actually first licensed nearly 30 years ago. It’s best known for smoothing wrinkles. However, it’s actually trusted for use in many medical conditions including:
- neck spasms
- overactive bladder
- grinding of teeth
- lazy eye
- back pain
- twitching eyelids
- excessive sweating
- and so much more…
Therefore, botox is as safe as any medicine can be when administered by qualified healthcare professionals.
