What is Botox?
Botox is used for three main purposes; muscle spasm control, severe underarm sweating and Botox Cosmetic improvements such as frown lines. Here at Hedox Clinic, our main focus is on treating facial lines and wrinkles using Botox Cosmetic, which contains botulinum toxin type A (the active ingredient), human albumin (a protein found in the human blood plasma) and sodium chloride.
The Botox Cosmetic that we use, for temporary smoothing of frown lines, which develop between your eyebrows can make you look tired, unhappy or angry. It is FDA and MHRA approved for this use. The product is often used off-label for horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines at the corners of the mouth and smokers lines around the lips.
Botox Cosmetic should not be confused with injectable fillers. Dermal fillers work differently, plumping up tissues so that lines and wrinkles diminish or disappear (Restylane, Radiesse and Juvederm are examples). Here at Hedox Clinic, Dr. Humble will fully assess you and your concerns to help you decide which treatments and product(s) will solve your particular appearance issues, although as a general rule, Botox is used mostly in the upper portion of the face, and fillers are used in other areas.
Cosmetic and Facial Aesthetics
In recent years, studies have been completed that show the correlation between Botox injections and the reduction in the number of days that migraines occur. Botox injections can help to reduce the number of migraines experienced by individuals due to the freezing of muscles within the forehead, that are associated with migraine pain. Although Botox injections can relax muscles, treatment can be effective for migraines as the treatment can block nerve connections which stops pain signals from entering the brain.
If you’re looking for Botox to treat migraines in St Johns Wood, or to discuss your individual needs and requirements, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team at Hedox Clinic. We’ll arrange an initial consultations so that your clinical history can be assessed by Dr Humble, to determine the most appropriate treatment for your migraines.

Side Effects of Botox
Although the majority of patients experience no side effects, some individuals may find that they experience some. Our Botox injections in St Johns Wood are generally well tolerated and there are few side effects. In some very rare cases, individuals may have a genetic predisposition that results in a mild, transient unusual response to the drug. Around 1% of people receiving injections of botulinum toxin type A develop antibodies to the toxin that make subsequent treatments ineffective.
Along with the intended effects, botox injections may rarely cause some unwanted effects including:
- Mild pain, local oedema (fluid buildup) and/or erythema (reddening of the skin) at the injection site.
- Malaise - feeling generally unwell.
- Mild nausea.
- Temporary unwanted weakness/paralysis of nearby muscles.
- Temporary upper lid or brow ptosis (drooping).
- Weakness of the lower eyelid or lateral rectus (a muscle controlling eye movement).
- Dysphagia - trouble swallowing.
- Neck weakness.
- Flu-like illness.
- Brachial plexopathy - a condition affecting the nerves either side of the neck and chest.
- Gallbladder dysfunction.
- Diplopia (double vision).
- Blurred vision.
- Dry mouth.
