This treatment involves the use of tiny amounts of a purified botulinum toxin-A (Botox) protein which has been used in many aspects of medicine for over 20 years. It is a prescription only medicine which can only be prescribed by a doctor or dentist. It has been proven to be of help in many sufferers of MIGRAINE and in some people has been a treatment of choice in endogenous depressive illnesses.
Botox prevents the muscle from contracting allowing the skin to recover and soften. The wrinkle relaxing injections are very specific and only reduce the movement of targeted muscles not affecting untreated muscles so allowing a natural range of facial expression. And it is available at our Stratford Upon Avon clinic.
The procedure takes approximately ten minutes and using a tiny sterile micro-needle, a very small amount of Botox is injected into the face. Discomfort is very minimal and you can resume normal activities immediately afterwards. These treatments are temporary lasting between three to six months; repeat of the treatment would then be required to maintain and improve results.

Dr. Kitchen – Warwickshire Botox Expert
Dr. Kitchen has been administering Collagen dermal implantation in Stratford Upon Avon Warwickshire since 1988 and since the mid-’90′s, the newer generation of synthetic cosmetic fillers such as Restylane, Restylane-Touch/Perlane/VITAL/SkinBoosters and SUB-Q.
Galderma (owned by parent company L’Oreal Paris) have recently produced a new range of cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid fillers called EMERVEL especially good for mid-facial volumization and containing local anaesthetic. They merged with Q-Med, the original makers of RESTYLANE, the first company to stabilize Hyaluronic acid, to become a world leader in skin healthcare and aesthetics.
Dr. Kitchen is trained in the administration of Botulinum Toxin (Botox and Dysport,Xeomin and Azzalure), for aesthetic reduction of facial expression lines, upper and lower face and also the neck. Botox has seen an exponential rise in popularity over the last 15 years. Dr Kitchen has a number of house-hold names and famous faces as patients in his portfolio.
Muscle relaxing treatments such as Botox, Dysport and Azzalure are extremely effective in the treatment of lines and wrinkles caused by a lifetime of everyday facial expressions. The upper third of the face responds extremely well to treatment with Botox. As mentioned this is often requested for persistent headaches, neuralgias and migraines. It has been proven to be an effective mood elevator.
As we age there is a marked slowing in the skin’s capacity to renew/repair itself meaning that when the skin is creased in areas of maximum use, these lines eventually become permanent.
Botox increasingly used for psychological benefits including depression.
Botox is a substance derived from botulinum toxin A that temporarily paralyzes muscles.
You’re probably familiar with its use in cosmetic procedures to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, it’s also been found to help with excessive sweating, migraines, and muscle spasms.
New research suggests that Botox may be an effective treatment for depression. Depression is a common mental health condition marked by ongoing feelings of hopelessness and sadness. Many people use a combination of antidepressant medications and therapy to help manage their symptoms.
However, some people can experience uncomfortable side effects from antidepressants. Often, they have to try a few different antidepressants before finding one that works well for them.
Botox may be an effective treatment option for depression used alongside antidepressants. However, research is still ongoing.

Male Botox Treatments
15% of all Botox patients are now MEN who are much less shy about enjoying the aesthetic benefits of the increasing range of treatments available.
Many men also use Botox to treat excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis). There are some patients who are resistant to Botox use and Dr Kitchen also offers the British branded DYSPORT which performs exactly the same function, Xeomin from Merz Pharma in Germany and also AZZALURE from Galderma in France.
Men are much less likely to tell their friends about anti wrinkle treatments which is why Dr. Kitchen believes that ‘less is more’ when it comes to anti wrinkle injections.
After some subtle injections friends and family are more likely to think you look ‘well rested’ and ‘healthy’ – rather than ‘frozen’ and ‘plastic’.
Male Botox treatment is available at all clinics including our Botox Stratford Upon Avon Clinic.
Possible Side Effects of Botox
Botox is a safe and effective treatment when used by a trained practitioner, such as Dr. Kitchen. Any side effects are generally minor, if they occur at all. When side effects do occur, they’re usually the result of over-treatment. If used in excess, Botox may immobilise too much of your face — or areas of your face you don’t want immobilised, such as your lips.
Botox side effects may include:
- Slight bruising/swelling/redness at the injection site
- Mild discomfort
- A slight, short lived headache
- Rarely an adjacent muscle may be weakened for several weeks
- Rare temporary drooping of the eyelid/eyebrow
Botox is not suitable For:
- Myasthenia Gravis
- Blood coagulation disorders
