I met the lovely Emma at the Sian Dellar Clinic in Harley Street. Reassuringly natural-looking, she’s a great advert for her work. I’ve had Botox a couple of times before but only in tiny doses and not for a little while. Emma discussed what I wanted – a preventative tweakment rather than full-on face freezing – and set to work marking points on my face in white crayon.
An absolute dab hand with a needle, I barely felt a thing as she danced across my forehead. Having never tried Botox around the eyes I opted to add a very small amount there as well just to see if I liked the effect – turns out I do. The whole procedure took under ten minutes, and I left with no needle marks or bruises in the following days.
I’d opted for such a conservative dose the first time around that we decided to add a tiny bit more at my two week follow-up appointment. The procedure was exactly the same as my prior appointment. With a very light touch of a tiny needle, I was good to go.
I can still move my forehead and frown but the faint lines have softened. The additional injections around the eyes were also a great move – while I hadn’t got visible crow’s feet, the softening made a big difference.
Emma struck just the right balance between a noticeable improvement and a totally natural result. Probably the least traumatic injections I’ve had, Emma is great company, calming, warm, and exceptionally competent.
Three areas of Botox are £330.
