Injections with botulinum toxin (Botox)
Botulinum toxin (or “Botox”) relaxes and reduces the movement of muscles, resulting in the skin over the treatment area looking smoother.
Botox is the purified form of a natural protein, injected using a very fine needle to reduce any discomfort. It’s a safe and effective treatment that can be used to reduce the appearance of ‘expression lines’ and wrinkles for 3 to 4 months.
Dr Gribbin also uses Botox to improve jaw squareness caused by teeth-grinding, and to reduce excessive sweating.
Miniscule, dilute amounts of Botox can also be used to relax the muscles in hair follicles to help address hair loss issues.

Is this treatment right for me?
Botulinum toxin works for a variety of patients depending on their needs and concerns. It can be used to relax muscles and smooth overlying skin.
It is also used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and enlarged masseter muscles (square jaw & bruxism). However, botulinum toxin is not for everyone.
Some patients with an allergy to the ingredients or who are at risk of a complication won’t be offered the treatment.
There are alternative treatments available, and so an initial consultation is the first step to discovering the right treatment for you.
How much does Botox cost?
This depends on the area being treated and the volume of Botox required. Prices start at £295
