BOTOX®

Throughout history, people have looked for ways to achieve a younger, more vibrant look by improving their facial appearance.

BOTOX® and newer products like XEOMIN® are developed from Botulinum toxin, which works by physiologically weakening the facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to expression lines.

Available from BPDS, in Chepstow, these products are administered by minute intramuscular injections to treat the facial wrinkles. This non-surgical procedure is considered a safe and effective way of preventing the appearance of ageing, offering a simple effective way to reduce wrinkles, promoting a more youthful, fresher appearance.

Just one 30 minute treatment session at our Chepstow BOTOX® clinic with our GMC registered, practising General Practitioners will reduce the lines that can make the face appear older.

There is minimal discomfort associated with this procedure, therefore eliminating the need for a sedative or local anaesthetic. Clients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. The treatment takes three to five days to begin to take effect and lasts from three to four months.

When the toxin begins to wear off, the wrinkles begin to reappear; however, they may not be as deep as the original ones. It usually takes two or three injections each year to maintain the smooth, youthful appearance desired. Studies suggest that, after several rounds of treatment, the patient may require injections less often.

Free initial consultation
Enhance Beauty utilise two products for Botulinum Toxin therapy, Botox® and Xeomin®. We find both products equally effective. Many people prefer to use the known brand… but Xeomin® is less expensive to achieve the same results. We belive in transparency and offer the choice of the preferred product to the client.

Have you had treatment before? Do you know what you are being injected with?!

If you haven’t been told – ask! The clinician should ALWAYS be happy to show you what they are using. If they are being evasive… chances are it isn’t what you thought it was!

BOTOX® therapy

XEOMIN® therapy

Prices are slightly higher for men (by £30 for a single area and £50 for two or more), due to the higher doses required.

BOTOX® FAQ’s

What is BOTOX®?

Botulinum Toxin has been used for over 25 years and is a type of purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Initially developed and traded as Botox® and more recently as new products such as Xeomin®. Tiny doses of this substance are injected just under the skin into the muscles that are being treated to reduce wrinkles. It is very safe and is injected directly into facial muscles in very tiny amounts during treatment.

How does it work?

BOTOX® is injected into the target areas and works specifically by blocking the nerve impulse, allowing the muscles responsible for the excessive contractions that cause wrinkles to relax. When these treatments are injected into the wrinkles, the toxin proceeds to relax the muscles of the injected area, smoothing the skin and seeming to slow down and even reverse the aging process. Other nerve functions, such as the skin’s sense of touch are not affected.

How many treatments will I need?

In most cases patients can see a real difference after one treatment. This is because BOTOX® works gradually, smoothing and softening lines and wrinkles for up to 4 months. Every face is unique and we will advise you on how many treatments you are likely to need and how often, depending on the results you would like to achieve.

How long does Botox work for?

The effects of Botulinum Toxin often last up to 4 months, depending on the patient. If you decide to stop treatment, previous lines and wrinkles will gradually return, although may be less pronounced than before treatment.

Is the treatment painful?

It is very rare for treatment with Botulinum Toxin to be painful. Most patients experience a feeling of slight discomfort if at all during the treatment itself but that is all. Rest assured we will talk you through what to expect before your first injection, so you will be fully prepared prior to treatment.

Why does it cost more for men to be treated?

The muscle tension in the faces of men is higher with stronger muscles. Because of this it takes higher doses of Botulinum Toxin to have the desired therapeutic effect, when compared to treatment for women. This results in a slightly higher treatment cost.

Can I go back to work after the procedure?

With Botulinum Toxin injections at worst you will have a little redness which will subside after a few hours. There is normally no reason you would not be able to return to normal activities immediately after the treatment.

Testimonials

“Invisalign – Light. Crooked front teeth that had started to become more noticeable. This, in turn, started to affect my confidence.

The experience at Beaufort Park was excellent throughout. The staff, from the initial consultation, were friendly and professional. The welcoming reception staff through to the excellent dentist (Russell Gidney) have made this an (almost!) pleasurable experience!

I feel so much more confident and happy to smile again in public.

Quintin Bell


“I hated my smile in photos, I looked as though I only had about 4 teeth! 🙁

Treatments have all been explained, the team have been great & I have started to notice my teeth changing & looking good – despite not even being half way through my treatment (Invisalign Aligner 11/23). I am so happy with the progress.

Thank you! 🙂

Super, I would recommend to anyone considering treatment.

Rachel C


“After years of being unhappy with my crooked teeth and avoiding photographers if at all possible.

I decided to seek corrective treatment at the grand old age of 55 in order to be able to smile at my daughters up coming wedding. After a chat with the Beaufort Dental practice I decided on a course of CFast treatment. In a few short months I was thrilled with the result. Straight teeth which were so much easier to care for and which looked 100 per cent more attractive

The cost was manageable too and I paid at intervals during the treatment. I wish I’d done it years ago.

“I did not like my teeth so didn’t smile.

Invisalign – absolutely brilliant! Very professional team, extremely happy with the results!”

Lisa G


“Even though my oral hygiene has always been excellent I have for many years hated my teeth which were discoloured + the crowns rather mismatched.

Dr Russell Gidney was the first dentist I had confidence in to correct my problems. He showed great empathy, kindness + professional skill. He made me feel completely at ease.

His dental nurses + admin staff are all lovely. The outcome is better than I expected, I now have a lovely smile!”

Pamela C


“I recently had cosmetic work on my teeth carried out by Russell at the surgery. he explained everything in detail and I am overjoyed with the results. The difference it has made is amazing and I thoroughly recommend them. The staff are very helpful too!”
