Why are celebs flocking to 111 Harley St for botox?

I’m a big fan of natural and organic skincare treatments. Slather me in lavender infused jojoba oil and seaweed masks that smell of the ocean and I will be happy – except on days when my frown lines glare back at me menacingly from the bathroom mirror.

Sadly there’s no amount of rosehip or black seed oil that can banish such “imperfections” and that’s when a handy jab of  botox comes in.

For any one who loves growing old gracefully and embracing their ageing complexions that’s truly fabulous, but for me, there’s no better feeling than seeing the pleasingly dramatic effects of a good botox treatment administered by a reputable and experienced practitioner.

This is why I trusted 111 Harley St with for such a procedure and booked an appointment with their highly knowledgable nurse Karishma for three areas of botox before my travels abroad.

111 Harley St is renowned for being at the epicentre of respected plastic surgery within London and beyond. With numerous celebrity and high net worth clients flying in from all over the world to access their exceptional services.

Founded by respected plastic surgeon Dr Yannis Alexandrides, the clinic is seen as a space of holistic bespoke care, performing over 10,000 invasive and non-invasive treatments on patients from over 89 countries every year.

Botox injections are made up of botulinum toxin, which of course sounds scary but when injected directly into the facial muscles, remains safely within them, temporarily blocking the chemical release of the primary neurotransmitter involved in muscle movement called acetylcholine. The result is a pleasing softening of static and dynamic wrinkles for smoother, firmer, and overall more youthful-looking skin.

Due to the toxic nature of the product if injected incorrectly, it is imperative to choose a trusted injector at a clinic with years of experience and detailed knowledge of facial anatomy, dance why I trusted this reputable clinic.

My treatment was quick and painless. As I lay on the plush treatment bed in the clinics invitingly chic treatment room, Karishma made me feel at ease and answered my health anxiety related questions with a calm, knowledgable and reassuring manner.

I left feeling confident with my treatment choice and was thrilled when days later I noticed the botox taking effect. My eyebrows were slightly lifted resulting in a more youthful appearance and my forehead appeared significantly smoother. Also my faint laughter lines around my eyes, (which would only show when I laughed) had disappeared.

After all the countless non invasive beauty treatments I have tried, botox is by far the one that makes the most visible difference and gives me that skin-smoothing euphoric feeling when it kicks in. Sometimes natural beauty needs a little healing hand…
