What is Botox®?


Botox® (botulinum toxin a) is a refined neurotoxic protein produced by the bacteria clostridium botulinum. It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, that stimulates muscle contraction, and causes a temporary paralysis. It has been used medically for almost 40 years, treating a range of neurological and urological diseases. Botox® has been used in cosmetic medicine over the last 20 years and is one of the most studied medicines in the world.

How long does Botox last?


Botox injections last on average 2-4 months, depending on the dose injected. Patients with a faster metabolism may find they metabolise the product quicker than others. I use the brand Xeomin® as I feel this product provides the best results.

Are there any contraindications?


Yes, the following patients cannot have Botox®:

  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women

  • Patients with a known allergy to Botulinum Toxin A

  • Patients with Myasthenia Gravis or other defective neuromuscular transmission disorders.

I don’t want to look frozen, how can I achieve a natural result?

Everyone’s face is unique and requires different doses. I tailor the dose according to your goals and my professional judgement. The goal is to achieve a natural result and I’d rather under treat you and top up at your follow up appointment, than over treat you. Rest assured, you will not leave my clinic looking like the patients that appear on Botched - I promise.


Botox Before & After



  • What machine do we use and why?
    The same machine the Kardashians use. The Gentle Max Pro by Candela, Global leaders in hair removal.
  • How does laser hair removal work?
    Laser removes the hair by a process called selective photothermolysis. The light energy from the laser is transferred into thermal energy in the hair follicle, with the laser energy targeting melanin, the pigmented region in the hair follicle. Heat from the laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair resulting in the follicle being destroyed.
  • Why choose Enhance COSMETIC CLINIC for laser therapy?
    It’s simple. Fast, effective, evidence based & affordable treatments.
  • Are you suitable for laser hair removal?
    YES, IF: You have dark hair on your face and body You find traditional methods of hair removal difficult or inconvenient You want quick, permanent hair removal NO, IF: You have blonde, white or grey hair. The hair needs to be darker than the skin. The darker the better. The laser needs to be able to “see” the pigment in the ha
  • Is your laser safe for all skin colours?
    YES! It was really important to me to invest in a laser that allows me to treat every skin colour safely and effectively.
  • How many treatments will I need?
    Results are unique to each individual, however a minimum of 6 treatments is required and that some patients may need additional treatments. Patients with an underlying medical condition (PCOS or hormonal imbalance) may need more treatments, with a 6 monthly session to maintain results. Any treatments over 6 receives 25% off - terms and conditions apply.
  • How often should I come in for treatments?
    Because hair grows in cycles, patients are typically advised to have a treatment every 2-4 weeks depending on the treatment area. This will vary with each individual. Face 4-6 weeks Trunk 4-6 weeks Legs 6-8 weeks
  • Can I shave in between treatments?
    Yes, you can. please wait 10 days after your treatment before shaving. The only time we require you to shave is 24 hours before your appointment.
  • Does it hurt?
    There may be some slight discomfort, which some describe as a snapping of a rubber band. Overall, the treatments are well tolerated. We use a dynamic cooling device (DCD) which shoots out cryogen to cool the skin before the laser pulse is fired.
  • Whys is a dynamic cooling device important?
    Rapid, efficient cooling and protecting of epidermal layers only. No use of messy gels.
  • I have hirsutism /PCOS/hormonal hair growth, will laser work for me?"
    Yes, I am successfully treating patients with hormonal hair growth. It is always best to see a Doctor to discuss this prior to commencing LHR as you may need medication to help balance your hormones, specifically testosterone as this hormone can encourage hair growth in women. Long term maintenance treatments will be required and complete clearance may not be achieved.
