Muscle Relaxing Injections

Every time we frown, squint or smile the skin is creased in the areas of greatest use. The more expressive you are the deeper the lines become. These expression lines include crow’s feet, worry lines and frown lines. As we age, collagen production slows down and the problem accelerates as we are less able to repair the damage.

Botox temporarily blocks the nerve endings to the facial muscles relaxing them. By reducing muscle movement, the skin stops being creased and is allowed to recover, causing the lines to soften and fade away. Over time the patient can retrain the facial muscles to be less expressive by breaking the habit of subconscious over use.

Is it safe?

The cosmetic benefits of Botox® were discovered in 1990 and it has been used effectively and safely ever since.

What happens during treatment?

The treatment involves injecting very small doses of Botox® via an extremely fine needle into the appropriate area. This sometimes causes a brief stinging sensation. Discomfort is so mild that anaesthesia is not required.
Normal activity can be resumed immediately after the procedure.

Are there any side effects?

No serious side effects have ever been reported, when using Botox® for cosmetic treatments.

Minor side effects occur in a small number of patients and are always fully reversible within a few days to a few weeks. Immediately after the injection there may be mild swelling and redness which subsides within a few days.

Bruising at the injection site may occur; this can be covered with make-up if needed.

Rarely a temporary drooping of the eyelid may occur, this resolves within a few weeks.

Very rarely following repeated injections, the patient may develop antibodies to Botox®. This makes subsequent treatments ineffective.

The initial consultation is free of charge with no obligation to undergo treatment. Costs vary depending on the area treated.

I have just had my second Botox treatment and I am thrilled with the results. Dr Holt also takes time to use an ice pack during the treatment so there are no visible injection marks or bruising. Straight back to work-secret safe!

Joan from Cambridge

I had just recently moved to Cambridge and I was looking for a clinic to continue my Botox treatment. I looked into a couple of clinics and decided on Cambridge Skin & Laser Clinic.

The staff are very friendly and not intimidating. The doctor is very experienced, and listens to any concerns you may have.

I was very pleased with the results, and would not hesitate to go back for more treatments.


Working in the medical field myself, I knew a lot about the procedure (Botox) before having it done but it was absolutely painless, there were barely any visible marks and the outcome totally amazing. In two weeks the lines had totally gone and people remarked how well I looked.


For the past 5 years I’ve had a lot of problems with sweating of the armpits which caused me lots of problems with socialising and wearing certain types of clothing.

I sought medical advice from my GP but his treatment wasn’t really helping. I researched on the net and came across Cambridge Skin & Laser Clinic, called them the same day and they reassured me Botox was safe and would last up to 6 months. It’s been 5 months and hardly a drop of sweat – it’s amazing.

The best thing about Botox is its painless. I would recommend Botox for sweating to anyone, it’s a miracle treatment.

All consultations are free of charge so why not call our team of experts today?
