Botox in Manchester and Cheshire

reza nassab icon

Anti-wrinkle injections are more commonly referred to as Botox®. With Botox Manchester and Cheshire patients can relax muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections are an effective and safe way to improve the fine lines and wrinkles. They are most effective for dynamic lines, which are those lines that come when you make facial expressions such as frowning. The treatment takes about 15-20 minutes to perform. The results take up to 2 weeks to become noticeable as it takes a few days for the action on the muscles.

How Botox works

At Reza Nassab Plastic Surgery in Cheshire & Manchester Botox works by blocking the chemical signals from the nerve endings to the muscle. This helps relax the muscle and reduce the movement that normally happens when the muscle contracts. The effect of this is improvement in the dynamic lines and wrinkles. This is most commonly used for the forehead lines; crow’s feet around the eyes; frown lines; and bunny lines on the nose.

This treatment is also effective for the dimpling of the chin. Botox injections are also commonly used for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating of the scalp, armpits and palms. Our fully trained doctors only use official Allergan Botox® in our Knutsford, Cheshire and Manchester clinics. We have many patients from surrounding areas such as Hale, Altrincham, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge, and the rest of Cheshire. Our Manchester clinic is located in Deansgate Square. The doctors will undertake a consultation to understand your facial ageing concerns and we will help formulate a bespoke plan for your needs. The anti-wrinkle treatment is performed using very fine injections targeting the specific muscles. There may be a mild amount of swelling or redness at the individual injection sites. Occasionally, some patients may experience a small amount of bruising which settles quickly.

Side effects

With Botox Manchester & Cheshire patients may experience these potential side effects, though rare, they include:

Bruising, Bleeding, Swelling

Immediately after injection you may experience some bruising or bleeding. It is normal to have some swelling at the injection sites immediately after the procedure. This swelling usually resolves within a few hours. If you get bruising this may take a few days to resolve.

Eyelid or Brow Droop or Ptosis

You may experience a minor drop in the first few days after treatment but this is usually temporary and resolves within 2 weeks. Occasionally, however, it may spread or migrate and weaken nearby muscles. The result of this may include drooping of the area treated such as drooping of the brow, eyelid, or mouth. This is uncommon and if injected by an experienced surgeon the risks should be minimal. There are other factors that can result in spreading of the Botox® such as massaging or rubbing the area after treatment.


Everyone has some degree of asymmetry or unevenness. After treatment, some areas may take the Botox® better than others. This means there may be some areas that are uneven. This can easily be corrected using an additional treatment.

Botox Frequently Asked Questions

What is Botox used for?

Botox is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the world. It is used to reduce lines and wrinkles. It is also a useful treatment for hyperhidrosis, which is a condition resulting in excessive sweating. This treatment is often used in children and adults with muscle spasticity. It can also be used for migraines and bladder instability.

Is Botox Safe?

The doses of the toxin used for aesthetic procedures or wrinkle reduction are much lower than those used for muscle spasticity. Our doctors are also fully trained professionals who perform this as safely as possible using only original and reputable products.

Do I see the results immediately?

No. It takes time for the treatment to work on the muscle. You will usually see some signs of treatment after 4-5 days but it can take up to 2 weeks to see the full effects of the treatment.

How long does Botox last?

The effects of Botox vary from patient to patient. It usually lasts about 3-4 months but in some it may last less.
