From the very first moment I reached out to botonics, I was greeted by a warm, friendly voice (Bill, who’s awesome). I immediately felt comfortable, and I booked an appointment for later that week.
When I arrived for my appointment, I met the incredible Naruschka Henriques. Okay, so. Naruschka Henriques looks like a person you would want to be doing your Botox. She’s arrestingly beautiful, like she made a deal with Isabella Rossellini’s character in Death Becomes Her. It’s insane.
We started chatting about what brought me there, and I instantly felt completely at ease. This may have been my first time getting Botox, but it was Naruschka’s billionth time doing the procedure. She was a pro who knew exactly what she was doing; we discussed everything that we would be doing before I moved to the treatment area in great detail, calming any lingering nerves I may have had.
The treatment itself is so minimally-invasive that Naruschka and I usually have a lovely, uninterrupted conversation whilst she does her thing. The pain is barely noticeable, and no worse than getting a tight little pinch. It goes away immediately, and the results will last months.
I’ve now seen Naruschka three times for treatment, and she worked on a new area during my last visit (closer to my eyes, where I have bags that I’ve always hated). The day after treatment, I looked in the mirror and literally said “Oh my god!” out loud in my flat. The lines under my eyes were already fading, and within three days or so, they would be completely gone. It was an unexpected result, but one that has helped to give me tons more confidence, which is part of the reason I started getting Botox in the first place. It was amazing, and the follow-up from Bill is always great; it reminds you that this small team of people really do care about their clients.
Long story long, I highly recommend botonics, and Naruschka Henriques in particular. If you’re worried or nervous about it at all, just go in for a (free) consultation and you’ll immediately feel at ease. Have fun! You’ll be super glad you went :) Read more

Everything went really smoothly and I do not regret this decision at all. It was well worth the money.
Monthly visits are flexible and well organised as well as visits to the laboratory for blood samples.
The results have been amazing and I wish I had done it sooner!

From the start of the procedure up until now and the very end, the dermatologist was quick in responding all my enquiries. I was prescribed Roacctuane since I had acne on my back and face. It wasn't anything severe, you could just say mild. However, I wanted to get rid of it as soon as I could and experience what it would be like to have clear skin!
Botonics helped me achieve what I wanted and so much more in such a short time frame. If you're looking for a dermatologist whether it be for acne or another skin condition, you can put your trust in Botonics for a first class experience. It's said you get what you pay for and I am a sceptical person myself but at Botonics you really do get what you pay ror! Read more

Botonics professionalism and support assisted me in my roaccutane journey towards clear skin.
I have had troublesome skin since I was a teenager, after it clearing up in my late teens/early twenties, I thought it was something do the past, however when I was 23/24, it came back and really affected my confidence as an adult. I tried everything and decided to look into roaccutane as my next option. I researched into accessing roaccutane through the NHS, however I was told I would have to wait at least 6 months until I could even be considered to begin. It was a horrible feeling and I felt lost. I began researching into private options and discovered Botonics. I read amazing reviews and a clear website addressing the questions I had in mind. After contacting to inquire, I learned that I could pay for a course, if I was able to undertake, in instalments. This was even better and I was excited to have my initial consultation and get underway.
I was contacted promptly by Botonics after inquiring and they were really helpful in providing me with everything I needed and wanted to know.
My first consultation was fantastic, I felt supported and almost excited to begin the course on my way to clear skin. Throughout the months I was replied to promptly whenever contacting Botonics and the process was made as simply as possible.
Now months into the course and almost to the end, I cannot express how much happier and confident I am in my own skin. I am thankful for botonics support when I was going though minor side effects- albeit all worth it!
It was all very easy, monthly check up consultations to see how my skin was going and then if all ok, a prescription of roaccutane for the next month. Initial two blood tests were included which was really helpful as they are required just to check that all levels were ok. I had no problems at all and it was great to know how closely everything was monitored for my overall health. It was made clear to me that I could contact them at anytime which was lovely to know.
I can not recommend them enough!
Thank you Botonics! Read more

My lips have always been thin.
I am now over 45 now and fine lines have begun to appear around my lips.
I had not ever had the procedure before so the experience was entirely new.
Narishka is highly professional and very gentle and kind. She was very patient in the consultation and I did not feel at all pressured to go ahead with anything.
The first treatment I had was very subtle and I received many compliments ( although nobody could identify that I had had anything in particular done!).
I returned about 6 months later to top-up my lips, and on reflection, this may have been a little hasty, as after the second treatment the effect was noticeable, and people commented that I looked looked like I had had my lips ‘done’.
I am very very happy - thrilled really - with my lips.
However, on reflection I would have returned for the second treatment after twelve months, rather than six, so in future I shall be seeing Narishka annually to have the treatment as it lasts longer than I had realised. Read more

Pre-procedure everything was explained thoroughly and my questions were answered patiently by a friendly and professional team.
Carrying and breastfeeding my three amazing children had taken it’s toll on my body. Dr Joffily, with his years of experience was able to offer me guidance and advice to help me to decide how to achieve the best results. I decided to go with three areas of Vaser Lipo, upper and lower abdomen and flanks plus breast augmentation.
The costs were inclusive of aftercare garments, massage etc. and were set out clearly, without pressure to proceed.
On the day of the surgery I met with the surgeon and his surgical team who made me feel at ease.
Post theatre care was adequate.
Recovery in the weeks following the procedure was straightforward and less painful than expected. I met with the surgeon once more. He assured me I was recovering as well as expected and that my results would only get better.
Two months down the line I couldn’t be happier with my results. The decisions I made, including implant size and areas requiring lipo were spot on and have made a world of difference to my overall shape.
The confidence this has given me, both in and out of clothing, is priceless.
A massive thank you to DR Joffily and his team. Read more

Its like she read my mind as to what i wanted my nose to look like! She got it just the way i wanted it. Truly an expert ! I was delighted with the results and would recommend her to anyone looking for a comfortable and effective treatment.

I happened to come across the great work of Botonics and absolutely fell in love with the results. The fact that it wasn’t permanent, was cost effective and required minimum recovery time hooked me in at once! I always contoured my nose and just wanted the tip to be narrower and the small bump on my bridge to be straightened out. After looking at the results online I realised that this procedure was a much better fit for me than an invasive nose breaking nose job!
I would definitely recommend researching thoroughly what the process involves- i did just that and was guided by the lovely staff at Botonics. I asked questions focusing on my concerns- what if I don’t like it?! What actually is a ‘non surgical nose job’?! Is it going to hurt?!”. I even sent photos to my surgeon ahead of the procedure to make sure that he definitely thought he could make an improvement to my appearance. I didn’t want to go all that way to the clinic to be told there was no hope for me and my not so little old nose! All of the staff I spoke to were more than happy to listen to my queries and sometimes ridiculous concerns- “will my nose drop off?!?!”- I was met with a professional yet personable service. Not once did I feel like I was being sold anything or being coerced into something I didn’t want. Having that line of communication really eased my concerns and made me more excited and less fearful of it all!
Once I had all of my questions answered and had my mind put at ease I went ahead and booked a consultation with the aim of getting the procedure done on the same day.
I was VERY nervous on the day but my surgeon was kind and patient and put my mind at ease. He even gave me the option of thinking about the procedure and returning another day but after hearing the wonderful things he could offer me I bit the bullet and went ahead with it!
The procedure itself lasted a few minutes and was very uncomfortable- mostly because I’m so used to breathing out of my nose which was being held, shaped and moulded into something new! Remember to breathe through your mouth and take gentle breaths. However after 10 minutes or so everything was done! The pain after was more of a bruised feeling but luckily I didn’t swell too much nor did I actually bruise. I would highly suggest in investing in all of the the precare and aftercare that is mentioned in your medical pack. Arnicacream was a god send and really soothed the area that had been injected. In comparison to the pain involved with actual nose jobs the non surgical option was a million times better!! No one likes injections and that’s all it really is! Yes it was painful but it was tolerable and really didn’t last that long.
I absolutely loved the results! Immediately afterwards I was shocked at how different it was but after Dr. Goyal explained what he had done I quickly became familiar with my new nose! He had straightened out the bump and lifted the tip making it pointer. It was better than I could have ever imagined- i now had a contoured nose minus the contour and fake looking effects of surgical nose jobs. After an hour or so when I was out shopping and looked in the mirror and was more shocked at how normal my nose looked- I had adjusted to my new nose within a matter of minutes. Aside from two red dots where I had been injected you couldn’t see that I had had any work done. What was even better was that no one noticed until I pointed it out. I still looked like me but more of a contoured version! I could have been born with this new nose and that’s exactly what I wanted.
It might be a somewhat subtle change and noninvasive procedure but the confidence it has given me is staggering. I find myself not focusing too much on powdering my nose to keep it matte and therefore “less big”. Im happy to have my photo taken from straight on and no longer have to position my face to my “good side”. In terms of makeup I simply highlight the tip which is something I would never have done before and just rock that! It looks so natural that it looks like I’ve been born with it which is something I find was harder to find with nose jobs. You know if someone has had invasive surgery because they look completely different!
My new nose is perfectly balanced and I now get compliments on it which always make me laugh because I spent 25 years feeling embarrassed and self conscious of it! I had my procedure done in feb 2018 and have been happy with the results since. I am now booked in to have the procedure done again as I’d like the tip to be a little more lifted. This time around I just want it to be more of a maintained nose as opposed of making it any smaller. I didn’t go back after the recommended 2 weeks to use the extra filler so I would 100% recommend anyone who has this procedure to take the surgeon up on that offer! I certainly will be this time around!
I think that Dr. Goyal and his team are amazing. His work was subtle but made such a huge impact on my confidence and how I viewed my face especially my side profile. You can’t put a price on confidence and feeling comfortable in your skin. I feel like the best version of myself which I think is a great feeling to have albeit vain but hey, I embrace it!
I’d like to extend my thanks once again to all of those who work at Botonics. The work these guys do is truly outstanding and their service is beyond 5 stars. I put my trust and my nose in their hands and they did not disappoint! Read more

I then came across Nurushka, what can I say, she is the most competent person I have come across with a needle in her hand. She wasn’t pushy, she gave me a lot of her time, I didn’t feel rushed. It was money well spent and I am delighted with the results. Please look no further if you are new to fillers, Nurushka will leave you very happy and content.
Thank you Nurushka Read more

I was super nervous of course, but can honestly say I loved the difference it makes immediately. Couldn't stop looking at my face the following day , the difference a tiny little bit of the filler makes. I had 1cc between both cheeks/under eyes. No one at all would ever know I had anything done, but I definitely receive comments on looking "fresh" which I can assure you did not happen before.
Each treatment has looked fantastic and I would not trust anyone else with my face! I actually travel from Durham to Botonics after doing my research of whom to go to for treatment.
The treatment itself doesn't take long, it is a strange feeling but really doesn't hurt that much. I am a wimp and it really doesn't bother me! I never write reviews for anything and have been intending to do this for a long time. I have felt completely comfortable the whole time, never felt rushed , a great treatment/clinic. Worth every penny. Read more

I WOULD HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENED BOTONICS. What a wonderful experience.
I was so worried going into this treatment. Chin augmentation is not something that you hear much about, but what difference the results can make to your face!
I have never really liked by side profile, and I put a lot of this down to my chin shape. The whole of my family have the same sort of chin and it is almost a bit of a trademark. However I have never been a fan.
I contacted Botonics to see if something could be done about this, and they let me know that it is actually a pretty common and simple treatment.
When I arrived at the clinic on Harley street which is a very convenient location for me, I was immediately welcomed and explained everything in very thorough detail. This calmed me down immensely!
The treatment was quick and painless (which I didn't expect) and the results are amazing! I no longer have the chin I hated and I much prefer my side profile, especially in photographs. I didn't realise the difference it would make. But I will defiantly be having this done again!
Thank you Botonics! Read more

As soon as i entered Narushka's practice i was made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable which really helped to put me at ease. I had a consultation when i arrived where we discussed the options for feminising my face and what i wanted. Narushka explained to me: exactly what she would be doing, What to expect during and after the treatment, the fillers she was going to use and how/where she would be using them in order to feminise.
Once the consultation was over we then began the treatment which lasted around an hour and consisted of Dermal Fillers being injected into my fore head and brow bone in order to "round out" my head shape and soften any harsh lines created by my prominent brow bone and temple bones. She used a numbing cream which meant that i didn't feel much and there wasn't much pain at all.
I was instantly amazed by the results and so happy! My Forehead is now much rounder and "feminine" and my brow bone is so much softer and no longer casts a strong shadow. Following in the next few days there was no bruising or pain and only a slight amount of swelling. In the next few months i will be re-visiting Botonics to further my treatment and i am so excited to see my results.
All in all it was an amazing experience and I'm so excited for the rest of my treatment as i am already a much happier woman! Thanks again to Narushka, a beautiful lady who made me feel so comfortable and who is so unbeliveably amazing at what she does! Read more

Having had my lips filled about a year ago, the majority of the filler had dissolved, so I was desperate to get them done again.
I previously had them done at a different company, however the problem I faced was that although previously I had paid for 1ml of Juvedem, I do not think that I actually received this full amount.
So I started to look on Google for other companies who were highly recommended. Botonics had great reviews which is such a key factor in choosing to go with them.
Surely enough they lived up to their 5 star review expectation. I was welcomed by Bill, who introduced me to the Dr who would be performing the enhancement. Both helped calm my nerves and settle me in, and at no point during the procedure did I feel like I was being rushed through as a 'patient'. Although I have had this done before, its still carries risks and is nerve racking. Having their support really helped the experience.
Straight after my lips were done they look great! Sure enough they did swell up in the evening, however by the next afternoon they had gone down to the exact size that I wanted them to be.
I couldn't express how happy I am with Botonics. Compared to other experiences I have had this by far excels.
I would highly recommend Botonics, and if you are reading this review considering which company to go for I would say that please read reviews for companies, as a cheap cheap price is usually way to good to be true, and could risk your health!
Hope this helps with your decisions :) Read more

I suffer from TMJ, which means that my jaw muscles lock up to such a degree that the pain is debilitating--I will wake up in the middle of the night with my face hurting because I've been clenching even in my sleep. When I read that Botox to the jaw muscles could relax them and stop them from clenching, I started looking into practitioners who performed this procedure. I remember the first time I saw Narushka I was actually fairly terrified because I had never gotten Botox before and was secretly petrified that something would go wrong and I would end up with a frozen face, unable to move my mouth etc. But, Narushka put me completely at ease not just with her warm and sincere personality, but the focus and dedication she put into her treatment. She took the time to really assess my jaw muscles carefully to mark out where the injections would go, to make sure that the right points would be targeted. The results were great--for the first time in my life I could go about my day without my face and neck in pain, and without dreading the onset of a migraine because of the tension. It also made my jawline slimmer, which I love as it makes me look more feminine than before! No more man-jaw!
These days I see Narushka every 4-6 months, and she remains just as friendly and committed to her practice each time. She still takes the time to check me over and think about what injection method would work best depending on how my jaw is doing, and she will also schedule in follow ups to see that the treatment is going well. Basically, it's clear that Narushka cares about her patients getting the best results. It will never be automated, factory style processing with her--she is dedicated to such a professional standard of work and driven by such a genuine concern for her patient's wants and needs that you will never feel anything but safe and confident in her hands!
Booking is also always super easy and Bill is amazingly responsive. On my most recent appointment, I realised an hour beforehand that my meeting would run over and I wouldn't be able to make it to Harley Street in time. I emailed Bill, because I couldn't make or take calls since I was stuck in the meeting, and he managed to arrange for me to see Narushka in the evening, during what was supposed to be her dinner break! I felt so terrible--she's always booked back to back--but when I saw her she was just as friendly and wonderful as ever, telling me not to worry, and cheerfully and competently knocking my pesky jaw muscles out once again.
Thank you Narushka and Bill! You are both amazing! Read more

Over the years I considered getting cosmetic surgery and travelled as far as the US to consult with top rhinoplasty surgeons and nearly spent a fortune to get my nose done but I'm so grateful I didn't!
I discovered Narushka (who is beautiful and talented) through a popular make up YouTube channel, I didn't know much about the procedure but a few days later I called Botonics clinic and booked a consultation with her and possible procedure.
When I arrived Narushka explained in detail 1. each step of the procedure 2. what to expect 3. what type of fillers she uses in the nose. I decided to go ahead with the procedure the same day, which took about 30 mins in total including numbing cream and injections.
The procedure didn't hurt too much but I initially had visible bruising on the top of my bridge and I could feel swelling in my nose the next day.
Narushka built up the bridge of my nose, particularly in between my eyes and even upon first sight I could see how it has given my face a more structured and balanced appearance.
I had the procedure about 6 weeks ago and I'm still floating! My nose has healed wonderfully and what I have come to understand is the structure of your nose is central to your face just like a good pair of eyebrows and a small amount of filler can completely transform your whole look!
My nose is straight and my face is more symmetrical and beautiful esp in photos while staying true to my ethnicity. Narushka's work looks natural, she is the best I have come across and the compliments from complete strangers have been amazing and are a testament this was well worth the investment, I would recommend Narushka to my family and friends and I will definitely be back. Thanks! Read more

I visited the clinic because I was concerned about some asymmetries after having a rhinoplasty 6 years previously and I wanted to find out more about the dermafiller treatment being offered.
I met with the specialist Naruschka who answered every question I had and even provided me with a very personal and professional service, full of great knowledge, advice with years and years of experience regarding the treatment as well as the industry as a whole. She wasn't interested in selling the product like other clinics but was more interested in why I wanted the treatment and how she could help, and what the best results would be for myself. She explained to me with transparent and full inclusive pricing and what methods I could go about paying for the treatment which was really useful and most importantly made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. I visited the clinic twice, firstly to have a consultation and then came back shortly after to have the procedure as I wanted to make sure I had all of the necessary pre-care and aftercare products available ready for me to use, which Botonics recommend.
The whole experience was amazing and I am returning for further treatment as I wouldn't go anywhere else.
The treatment was less painful than what I expected and the results blew my mind immediately after having the treatment, so overall the experience was worth it and I wouldn't change anything.
Botonics also helped me when I needed to reschedule my appointment and I truly felt like they were so helpful with this.
Naruschka and Bill were fantastic and I truly believe that the treatment and the service provided here at Botonics in Harley Street London was truly a 5 star service. Read more

Dr. Goyal is who did my procedure and I was glad I was in his hands for this. He was very calm and worked smoothly. The thing I liked best about him is that he would double and triple check the injections to make sure they were even and produced the effect I was looking for. I can tell his aesthetics are very important in his decision making and that they were a great benefit to improving my face. He had steady hands and communicated well which made the procedure very easy (even though I was very nervous).
I bruised a bit afterward, but it was not very noticeable, and quickly went away after using a hot compress (as they suggested). It now feels so natural and I am so pleased with boost in confidence I now have! Read more

Today, I can see the true transformation of my nose as the swelling has totally gone down and I all I can say.. am blessed to know her and her lovely team who had been very supportive from day one and am so glad I have chosen Botonics.
Based on my experience, total healing takes time. So, I suggest if you have a special occasion to attend to, please have it done a month before that occasion for a perfect look. However, it depends on the person.
For those scared of pain, well, I felt nothing except a little bit on my nostril but it's alright. Naruschka will see to to it that you are at your most comfortable condition.
I had a long journey with the annoying underground train noise, etc, however, my effort was worth it.
It's a fulfilled dream for me.
Thank you Naruschka for doing the best for me and my sincere thanks and appreciation to your team. And, I shall see you again very soon. Xxx Read more

40 years of hating my nose was banished in a 15 minute, virtually painless, procedure. I always thought I detested my nose because it was too big but that was a red herring; it was the asymmetry - which has now been corrected. It looks so much prettier both face on and in profile and I feel more confident as a result. Highly recommended: my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. Read more

I thought it over for a while and I ultimately decided to go through with it as I really appreciated the respect and time Dr Goyal gave during my consultation and felt I could trust him. The procedure was very quick and exactly as he'd described - and the results were great! 2 weeks later I went in for a follow-up appointment and was again very happy with Dr Goyal and the aftercare provided. I had forgotten to take before/after photos and Bill and Rosalie (my points of contact) kindly sent me the photos Dr Goyal had taken. They were also quite quick in getting back in touch with me and helping me booking my appointments.
Overall, a very good experience, Dr Goyal was friendly and professional, and completely understanding of my hesitance to have the procedure and I never felt 'pushed' into making a decision, and Bill & Rosalie were very helpful in setting up my appointments and answering any 'over-the-phone' questions I had. Professional, friendly, and great results. Read more

Naruschka is kind, calm and an expert at what she does. All my treatments have been perfect and achieved exactly the results I hoped for.
The most recent treatment I have had is a non-surgical nose job. I now have a perfectly symmetrical nose following the treatment. I have also previously had botox and will continue to do so at botonics. Read more

I was absolutely ecstatic with the results and I could not believe how something so simple had altered my appearance so dramatically.
I had quite a prominent dorsal hump in my nose and this now looked completely straight. Naruschka did explain to me in detail that a lot of this would be swelling and that the appearance my alter slightly as the healing process took place.
One week later I will still overjoyed with the results of my nose. The swelling had subsided almost completely and although a tiny (I cannot stress how tiny) part of the bump was visible again, it was such an improvement on my original nose that it did not bother me in the slightest.
That was until I received a negative comment from somebody who I had thought of as close to me and a supportive friend. They told me that they could see the bump clearly, it was a waste of money and that it didn't look any better.
Suddenly, a wave of insecurity hit me and I took this persons words literally. What I was seeing in the mirror was not matching the comments they had made, but in my own head their words rang (unrightfully) true.
I therefore contacted Bill and Naruschka and made a formal complaint about my nose. They tried to explain and address each one of my issues in a calm and professional manner, but at this point I was unwilling to listen and was feeling very insecure. I can admit that I was not the easiest client to have. They asked me to send pictures of my nose, which I sent and they then sent these back to me along with the pictures of my original nose before the procedure. By this point, I had taken steps to remove the negative person who initially commented from my life and I could now see that the results were undeniably good.
It has been almost 5 months, and even though a minimal amount of filler has dissolved my nose still looks so much better than it did originally.
I am going back to the clinic on Friday 7 for a second treatment.
Everyone has told me my nose still looks so much better that I do not even need to go back! But I think that I am a bit of a perfectionist and I am confident Naruschka can take my nose to the next level for me personally.
I cannot stress enough how comfortable I am to be going back to the clinic, even after the way I initially reacted, they accepted my apology with grace and were very understanding and supporting of the situation when I finally explained to them and were more than happy to welcome me back. Bill explained to me that it can be quite common for friends/family to give negative feedback after somebody has undergone a cosmetic procedure, and this made me feel a lot better and willing to share my experience to hopefully help others who may experience the same thing!

I saw the reviews online about Naraushka and wanted to book, she's constantly unavailable (I soon came to know why) but I managed to get an evening appointment.
I was astounded by the time she took, I've had at least 4 different doctors and her focus, patience and thoroughness was really quite surprising. She also has a great eye, and really does know how much should restylane should be used in each area.
She's very hard to get, but I hope I don't have to ever see anyone else for fillers again. Read more

To do something about it after reading all the good reviews about botonics online I decided to take the plunge. I spoke to bill who was great and made an appointment to see dr nurein. Dr nurein put me at ease straight away and was very informative.I decided to go ahead with my fat transfer and liposuction
Procedure and can honestly say I now feel like a new person I feel more confident Than I have done for a lot of years. I cannot thank bill and the team enough . Rebecca Read more

Another reason why botonics are so good is that if you have anything left in your syringe they will keep it for you for a few weeks in case after the swelling goes down you will need a top up. Unfortunately because of work commitments and being in a different country, I couldn't pop back in a couple of weeks later for my top up. So I decided to go back and see Naruschka yesterday, 6th march 2017. My Result was good and the filler had remained the same but had just went down a little after swelling on the tip of my nose which I wanted to add too. Naruschka remembered me and was just so lovely to me. She remembered my nose and knew exactly what I wanted done. She gives you such a personal experience, I couldnt believe she remembered our conversation from when I first met her and what I wanted. She filled my nose once again I am back home now recovering and after being more prepared this time round my swelling is barely noticeable. This has honestly changed my life. I will continue to do this procedure for as long as possible and I will go to no one else except Naruschka. The experience was so brilliant, her team Bill and Rosalie are both so lovely to deal with and if you have any issues they are willing to bend over backwards to help you. The service is exceptional and I am so so happy. You will not regret going to botonics that's for sure!! Read more

Well all I can say is the results left me amazed. My nose looks straight and the area under my eyes full and fresh. My confidence has been boosted and I've not felt this good about myself in a very long time. I traveled from Leeds and it was so worth it
In comparison to all the other companies the prices were more than competitive and the service 100%
Thank you all at Botonics and I'll be seeing you very soon Read more

Pros of Botonic service
- Procedure uncomfortable during "sculpting" but not painful overall
Cons of Botonic service
- Gave me a filler I didn't ask for for a higher price
- Complete migration of filler away from eyes
- Side effects on both eyes
- Extremely slow to reply when reporting these side effects
- Receptionist somewhat patronizing
Hi, I am a young woman (early 20's) who wanted a fresh look so had my tear troughs done in November. My oh my, disaster from the go! I called around a few clinics as I wanted to use Restylane under my eyes - a known safe filler with minimal migration. I made this known to Bill (receptionist) and he gave me a quote for this filler. I agreed based on the idea that I'd be using this filler. After all, something which is known to be safe is what i'd want to start with. FF to the consultation. Naruschka was nice, friendly, talked me through the procedure. What she didn't mention is that she would be using an alternative filler in my eye - Perlane. In fact, I wasn't notified about this until I was hit with a bill that differed from the quote given. I emailed Bill asking why this was and he proceeded to tell me that Naruschka had decided to use Perlane under my eyes. I was horrified - I didn't know what this filler was and should have been known that what I had requested may or may not be what is used on the day. He emailed me back saying "Perlane IS Restylane" just that it was a different type.
They are different fillers with different properties otherwise they wouldn't be a different price. Quite frankly I found that insulting.
As the weeks have gone on, I noticed my left eye had a deeper ridge (which I was told by my Ophthalmologist was due to over filling in the upper eye) and I developed deeper pigmentation and a swelling/ bags under my right eye. I emailed the team about this and received a VERY delayed response. My eye was feeling dull and SWOLLEN months after the procedure, this could have been an infection (Read up on this) or worse and I received a reply around a week later!!
I'm now 2 months in and my eyes are worse than they were before the filler despite paying for a "longer lasting filler".
Honestly, Go to a well known Ophthalmologist. If they get something wrong I'm sure they'd respond quick enough to fix the problem. I've had to fix this with Sabrina Shah but should have started here anyway.
I wasn't going to write a review but the ones on here are misleading I believe. Read more

Prior to that we had been extremely self conscious regarding our noses (as we had a bump) and was researching rhinoplasty in London. So much so that we had a consultation with a few well known surgeons in London. As we didn't have enough money at the time for rhinoplasty we looked for alternatives and found botonics online (so glad we did!)
Naruschka is such a beautiful person both inside and out and knows exactly what she's doing! She is so friendly and highly knowledgeable, she doesn't pressure you to do ANYTHING. In fact we discussed having our lips done with her which she then advised us to let our nose settle in first (as it was our first ever treatment) and not do our lips.
Three months later we haven't had a day where we are insecure about our noses and we are SO happy we didn't follow through with rhinoplasty. The results are soooo natural that no one (even family members) noticed but make a bit difference to your self confidence.
Tips for anyone wanting to get it done:
- Naruschka is the best in my opinion and I wouldn't ever go with anyone else.
- There is a LOT of swelling so don't freak out (for two weeks)
- Results are perfect after a month Read more

She really listened to what I wanted, the fact that I was going for a very natural look, and she managed to achieve just that!
I would definitely recommend!

My appointment came through and I have to say I was thoroughly impressed right from this very first stage.
Naruschka was patient,polite and thorough but most importantly extremely professional and knows her work.
I left grinning ear to ear and couldn't have asked for a more perfect result!
Highly recommend Botonics!

I had my treatment on a Friday afternoon. I did have some swelling and bruising over the weekend. I was quite conscious of it and was pleased that I had no plans to see anyone, but I kept applying make up and my children didn't even notice. I was fine to go back to work on Tuesday. It has improved every day since then and now, one week on, I couldn't be happier. I will definitely have the same treatment done again when I need it. It looks completely natural but I feel so much fresher and less tired looking.
The only thing that may put me off is if it doesn't last very long as it's not something I could afford to have done really frequently. If I get 9-12 months out of it I'll be even happier than I am now! Read more

I had a consultation with the lovely Naruschka, she listened to my concerns and came up with a plan to tackle these issues. Not at one point I felt rushed to make a decision there and then, Naruschka totally understood what I was after and advised the best course of action. She explained fillers were my best option for under my eyes and the smile lines. I did ask about having Botox but she advised against it as I wanted to maintain movement on my forehead and that to me confirmed she was only going to suggest what was best FOR ME! She definitely has a more personalised approach and she wants you to be happy with the final result and if you are after a natural result she will give you just that! I felt so comfortable during our consultation that I decided to go ahead with the fillers on the same day. It hurt a lot less than I imagined and I only had some minor swelling for a couple of days under my eyes but none noticed not even my husband! No swelling anywhere else and NO bruising whatsoever. If you follow the pre and after care you are given at your appointment it does help a lot.
The result was exactly what I had in my mind: I looked less tired and more youthful but still me. Perfect! I immediately booked a follow up appointment with Bill and I saw Naruschka again to discuss acne skin care a couple of weeks later. She explained that although to deal with the hyper-pigmentaiton a peel and maybe a course of derma pen was ideal, I couldn’t do that with active acne on my skin so she gave me some prescription skin care first. Once my acne is under control then I can go ahed with the other treatments. She explained how to use the products and what to expect (some redness and peeling for the first week or so which is exactly what happened) and after only 2 weeks I cannot believe the difference! I have already booked my first peel in 4 weeks time and will keep seeing Naruschka in the future without a doubt! She is not only highly skilled and knowledgeable in what she does, she listens to you and she REALLY cares. Highly recommended! Read more

Bill was really helpful and easy to talk to, Dr Nurrein was very helpful and honest about the results of the treatment.
I was also referred to Helen for after care massages session which was amazing.
Helen is brilliant , I definitely will be using her again.

I have always had hollow tear troughs and I can honestly say that I looked brighter and fresher, (not to mention younger!) immediately after my first treatment. I am now a regular at this clinic and would highly recommend to anyone. Bill who works with Naruschka books you in and he responds very quickly to any queries you may have. He is excellent & always very cheerful! I would never go anywhere else! Read more

Naruschka is a confident and very experienced aesthetic nurse practitioner with an excellent bed side manner.
She also has a good aesthetic eye and is aware of her limitations. She errs on the side of caution thus ensuring you end up with a natural and not overdone result. She is familiar with a range of fillers meaning she is able to suggest what may or may not be suitable for an individual and provide an alternative.
The bookings team are also brilliant, Rosalie and Bill have superfast response times are very efficient and friendly.
Like all things with aesthetic medicine word of mouth is very important. I have no hesitation in recommending Botonics and Naruschka for filler treatment. Read more

From first email contact with Bill through to the appointments with the amazing Naruschka, I found a totally professional and sympathetic organisation.
Naruschka's detailed explanation of the various fillers available, the pros and cons of each one, the possible negative side effects, how long the fillers were likely to last, were unhurried and thorough, and any questions were answered fully. I did not sense any compulsion to take up any procedure either at that first appointment or, indeed, at any later time.
I went ahead with the treatment with the recommended filler & there was little to no pain, for me. Naruschka even ensured that I did not have a needle phobia. She took the time necessary to make sure that the treatment was administered well - she even told me about the slight differences in the bone structure on each side of my face that required slight differences of approach from one side to the other. It felt like I worked on by an artist!
After the setting up follow-up appointment through the lovely Bill to ensure that all was well with the fillers, I made another appointment to address the darker marks on my face. Again, Naruschka's explanations and advice in the use of the recommended products were exemplary. I am now into the second week of using these products, and, so far, so very good indeed!
The appointments did not feel rushed in any way. Naruschka gave all the time I needed to understand everything and address any concerns and questions I may have had.
Very highly and unreservedly recommended. Read more

I have had non-surgical treatments in other places and when I met Naruschka for the first time I had had some really unhelpful treatments elsewhere which had resulted in my face not looking like me at all! Naruschka has worked with me for a while now, allowing my natural features to come through, and enhancing those. I think she is an artist in the way she works with fillers and has an overall sense of a person's face, keeping everything in balance.
I would not go and see anyone else at this point, as I trust this team completely, it is rare to find such personal service and artistry in this field. Read more

I had the procedure done few months ago and my lips still look great.
Also have to thank Bill for being ever so helpful, informative and understanding. Because of my busy schedule I had to cancel few times and was offered alternative appointment.
Thank you :) Read more

I have spoken to coordinator Bill who arranged for me to see Haruschka Henriques.
What initially attracted me to Botonics is that on their website it says exactly how much a syringe costs, so there are no unexpected costs. I went to see Naruschka for the free consultation, where I was told exactly what to expect - nothing was exaggerated nor was there amny pressure for me to go through with the treatment. I decided to go ahead with it, and Naruschka advised I get a bigger syringe this time to give me a fuller effect. I was numbed in advance so that I could feel no pain. To be truthful, for me, I am very sensitive and although I was numbed I could still feel the needle which was unpleasant but it's manageable. There was a little blood involved and swelling!
previously, because I had less filler injected I was hardly swollen, but this time it was a nightmare as I had to get the tube home! I can laugh it off now though! but it's normal and I was warned that this is a likely side effect. The swelling and bruising dramatically reduced in the 24 hours and with a little makeup, I could go outside.
The procedure went very well, and I love Naruschka's technique. I attended the follow up appointment, which not many clinics offer so it's a really good idea to attend! Naruschka checked my lips for symmetry and to make sure everything is ok.
I love the service I have received at Botonics. With something as intimate as someone injecting fillers into your skin, you really need to do your research. I strongly recommend Botonics and I will definitely be going back soon! Read more

Very Satisfied Client
Friday, December 18, 2015
I researched non-permanent/non-invasive surgery and found dermal fillers would be the most suitable for my needs, as it was not permanent and if I did not like the results after a couple of months my nose would go back to its original shape.
I researched so many companies over several months, but Botonics really stood out for me, although more expensive the literature contained on the website in addition to before and after pictures, videos and client reviews really helped me to make a decision to where I was going to get my treatment. I was struggling to find a provider with great testimonials who were able to evidence the work they had completed with previous clients, whereas Botonics had everything a potential client would want to see and read before booking a consultation. To be quite honest I was a little uncertain with the reviews I read on the Botonics website as each review was so positive and all clients expressed what a great experience they had and the exceptional service they received, so I was a little weary that maybe Botonics were actually writing their own reviews to entice potential clients to choose them.
I finally made a decision that I wanted to go ahead with the dermal filler treatment, so made contact with Botonics. I received a call back from Bill who was extremely pleasant and very helpful, he was able to answer all my questions (no mater how stupid I sounded) which really put me at ease and made me feel more confident in choosing Botonics.
Bill booked a consultation for me at my earliest convenience, and was able to get an evening appointment (due to personal commitments), which suited me brilliantly. Once the consultation was booked Bill sent me information regarding the treatment and also guidance on before and aftercare e.g. products required to take before and after the treatment.
The day of my consultation arrived, I was a little anxious but Dr. Naruschka Henriques made my nerves disappear and was very thorough with her approach making me aware of all the risks associated with dermal fillers etc. She listened very carefully to what I wanted, the results I wanted to achieve (a subtle change that people will not notice) and answered all my questions. I was also not happy with the shape of my bottom lip and mentioned this in the consultation, Dr Henriques expressed that she would also be able to amend the shape of my lips so they looked more symmetrical.
Dr. Henriques asked if I wanted to have the treatment on the same day, there was no pressure if I did not want to go ahead with the treatment on this appointment, but I decided to go ahead with it. I thought this would have been the approach because in the client reviews I had read previously clients had mentioned getting their treatment on the same day as their consultation and I had already prepared myself by taking Arnica tablets (helps reduce bruising) prior to my appointment.
Dr. Henriques prepared my face with the anaesthetic cream (to help reduce the pain of the procedure). Once I was numb she started to inject me with the filler, on some parts of my face I could not feel anything at all, but on the more sensitive parts it did feel a little uncomfortable and painful, however bearable. It took about 30 minutes to complete my nose and lips and the results were instant! I was so happy with the way I now looked.
Dr. Henriques did explain that I will bruise for a few days but to continue to take the Arnica tablets and to use the Arnica cream to reduce the bruising. The first night and day of the procedure it was a little uncomfortable (feeling pain due to the bruising and swelling), I was a little concerned as I did not expect this, but within 2 -3 days the swelling and bruising had reduced, and I still continued to use Arnica tablets and cream. Even though there was swelling and bruising no one could notice. It took just over a week for the bruising etc. to completely go.
Its now three weeks since having the treatment and I can honestly say I am over the moon with the results. I feel so much more confident and less conscious about the way my nose looks. The results are so subtle and natural no one notices that I’ve had any treatment unless I tell them. I only had one friend that noticed (shes had rhinoplasty surgery) and she was really impressed with the results she had to go and research Botonics herself and said the results seen on the website are amazing.
Overall I am so happy with the service received from the Botonics team, I will be returning in the future for maintenance treatments and will definitely be recommending Botonics to everyone I know. My experience with Botonics has confirmed that every review on the website is genuine including my own! Read more

The guy I booked the appointment was so friendly and helpful, it was a really easy process. I believe the next appointment they had available was in a week and a half but I was put on the wait list as I was eager to get the procedure done! I did actually get an earlier appointment offered which was great. I turned it down in the end as I made dinner plans but was really good to have the offer.
I love that the practice is in such a gorgeous building on Harley Street. It makes it all the more exciting being in such a grand place! The waiting room is gorgeous and comfortable as is Naruschka's practice room.
And now for the most positive part of the experience, Naruschka herself. She is just lovely. So warm and friendly and completely sympathetic to your concerns. It was a leisurely appointment I didn't feel rushed in any way. The whole process was explained and I had more than enough chance to have any queries and concerns answered which was very reassuring. We talked about what I hoped to achieve and how much product it would take then once we were both happy it was time to start!
It was painful. More so that I expected actually but completely bearable and absolutely worth it. Once one side had been completed I got to look in the mirror and the difference between that side and the natural side was amazing. I knew straight away I would be happy with the results!
There was no bruising at all. I took Anica for the weeks prior as recommended and bought Anica cream but didn't even need to use it.
There was a bit of pain where I moved my face for a couple of days but it wasn't bad at all and just made me feel excited whenever I got a twinge as it reminded me I had FINALLY had it done.
There is a great follow up appointment available as part of the service too which I don't think is available with all clinics.
I look way younger and so much fresher and more healthy. It's very natural looking, I don't even think anyone would notice what has changed but I look way better.
It's been about 4 months and the filler has dispersed by about 25% I think. I actually cant wait to go back and would definitely recommend Naruschka to anybody.
Thank you Naruschka! Read more

I was super concerned about undergoing the treatment and took a long time to consider if it was right for me and to think about the possible associated risks, In fact I re-scheduled twice until the day I arrived at the Harley street clinic ready for the procedure.
Narushka is quite unique in her ability to perform this treatment and there by reducing risks and getting right to the individual problem areas.
I only felt minor discomfort through out my treatment, and in Narushkas expert and well practiced hands I could even relax. In fact she had a great calming influence on me, so much so that I was able to feel completely at ease even though I'd been deliberating for so long!
Instantly I could see the benefits and positive effects on my problem areas, and was so pleased with the targeted result.
Very wisely Narushkas approach was to see how I got on with the first treatment and then return for a follow up where we agreed I needed a little more product to get a perfect finish.
I will definitely be returning for another treatment with Narushka when the time comes and already have a reminder in the diary.
I can honestly say of all the rejuvenation treatments I've had this one has made the biggest difference to the way I look and feel.... With this treatment I lost that slightly tied look and just look fresher and feel brighter.

I came across Botonics, and noticed a section of their website dedicated to men which, together with the universally high positive reviews, gave me the confidence to fill out the contact form to discuss my concerns. I got a prompt, friendly call back from Bill, my coordinator and decided to book a free consultation a few weeks later (well, I had nothing to loose). The clinic’s a nice comforting environment and I had an informal, honest conversation with Naruschka, my specialist. We first focused on why I was unhappy with my eye hollows and how I thought getting treatment would benefit me. Once we’d assessed that I had thought this through and was considering treatment for the right reasons, we then started to discuss tear trough treatment, where Naruschka carefully explained the procedure, the small risks involved and talk through all the questions I had. Following our discussion, I was convinced that tear trough treatment was what I wanted so decided to get back in touch with Bill to book an appointment for treatment. I booked a date that coincided with some time I was taking off work for a holiday.
On the day, Naruschka did a great job of explaining every step throughout the treatment and easing my ‘needle’ nerves (the sweet tea that had been prepared for me worked wonders!). After the treatment was completed, I was quite taken about by how instant the results were. I was seriously impressed and very happy! The initial bruising I had was minimal and I didn’t need any adjustment during the follow-up appointment that we’d scheduled a week after, which is included as part of the treatment.
For guys who are unhappy with their eye hollows and have considered, but have anxieties about seeking trough treatment, you really should book yourself a consultation. The experience I had with Botonics throughout and, even more crucially, the end result, has been fantastic. Read more

So, I booked in for the treatment and I am still on the moon about the results. My confidence literally came back overnight and I almost burst into tears of joy when I saw what Naruschka had done. I still cannot believe it. Some slight bruising but this is to be expected (you are prewarned before your treatment to take Arnica tablets and have Arnica cream at the ready for any bruising which may occur) but the procedure itself was comfortable and the results smashed my expectations. I cannot stop looking at my new nose and very glad I chose Botonics. :-) Read more

I saw Naruschka Henriques on tv and researched her online. She advertised the tear trough treatment but I was worried about filler in my face in case it went wrong. Bill the coordinator offered support and advise and booked me an appointment. I went for my consultation, and they recommended I defer treatment to sort out my dry eye condition, I returned 6 weeks later, had treatment and am so pleased with the results. It's looks so natural and it didn't hurt at all. I didn't even bruise which I couldn't believe as I bruise so easily. Will definitely go back for a top up later in the year when I save a few more pennies, but so worth the money! Read more

I looked online at the possibility of correcting the problem and initially found a clinic on the continent that seemed to offer an answer with something called a feather lift.
The continental clinic scheduled me for a interview with the surgeon which was great- until I was advised that the only solution would be an expensive full mini-lift procedure. When I asked if there was any alternative, less invasive treatment I was told there was none suitable in my case. More worryingly, in my opinion, they seemed to grossly underestimate the recover time required.
I turned back to the internet and had the excellent good fortune to find the Botonics website. There was a number to call and I spoke to Bill who was superb and spent 40 or so minutes very clearly explaining the alternatives to surgery. Filler treatments, although not permanent, were minimally invasive, had minimal recovery time and could produce very good results. Having sent photos I was given a clear estimate of costs and subsequently booked a consultation.
Naruschka who conducted the consultation exuded professionalism and was more than happy to spend time answering all the last minute questions of a rather nervous potential patient. After our chat I was more than happy to proceed with the proposed filler treatment.
The results- I was delighted and best thing of all I was able to walk out back to the hotel looking improved- but normal- no scars, no significant swelling and no time off work.
Afternote: About a month after treatment I had cause for concern when I noticed swelling around my eye. I suspected it may be a mosquito bite (I work overseas where they are common) but was nevertheless worried it might be a reaction. Although very late afternoon I contacted Botonics urgently,
The response couldn't have been swifter. Bill emailed back, Naruschka was consulted and full advice on a precautionary course of medication was given in case of a possible infection or reaction. Bill continued to follow up daily on my status and after a day or two the swelling completely disappeared. Maybe a false alarm- but I was truly impressed and indeed grateful for Bill and Naruschka‘s fast response, concern and help.
I would be more than happy to recommend Botonics to anyone. Read more

My face, I am happy to say, has never gone back to the gauntness I started with, however, I have had top up fat transfers every 18 months to two years. My last top up was September 2014, another excellent job, however, for whatever reason, the fat diminished like a balloon within 2 months, I was devastated. The fat loss was not completely diminished, but I lost a lot of volume, too much for my liking. I work overseas, so due to that reason another fat transfer and being so soon would be out of the question. I started to investigate a quick solution, as having another fat transfer would also mean downtime, which I did not have the time to take. At the time of investigating my solution, personal circumstances brought me back to the UK.
Just before I had had my previous fat transfer, I had come across Botonics, and that was due to watching a YouTube, blogger who is a makeup artist, he had recommended Naruschka, he mentioned that she had been a makeup artist. Due to that statement I listened intently to his review and knew that Naruschka having an aesthetic eye, would be able to deduce the procedure that would give me the results of what I would be looking for, (aesthetically pleasing to the eye). I emailed Botonics, whilst still overseas, and was surprised to get a telephone call from Bill, who answered all my questions. I was very dubious at the time, although I had read and heard the reviews. I decided to go ahead and meet with Naruschka as I was going to be in London.
An appointment was made, I meet with Naruschka, still dubious (I am being honest); she talked me through the procedure for dermal filler treatments, showed me pictures of clients (before and after) was never pushy, I liked what she said. She asked me, what do I think I need. I explained , and she caught my vision of how I wanted to look (which is essential for any client). However, I decided not to go through with the procedure and went ahead with my fat transfer.
As I said the after the swelling went down with the fat transfer, within a very short space of time I lost a lot of volume (2 months); it had never happened so dramatically in the past. I was back in London again in November for 2 weeks, and was able to schedule an appointment with Botonics. I meet with Naruschka again, confident in what she was telling me, and confident in her skills to make me aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I decided to go ahead with the dermal filler treatments. Naruschka, tells you when she is about to inject and talks you through the procedure, whilst she is doing it, I personally appreciate that. She sculpted my cheek bones, filled out the hollows and nasolabial folds, and some divits in my chin.
My personal experience. The procedure is not pleasant. Naruschka used a numbing cream on my face which helps (?!) well I do not know what a cannula feels like going in your face without the numbing cream. Leaving the cream on for around 20 minutes, the cannula is used to make a small incision for the injection of the dermal filler mixed with lidocaine although you start to numb, the feeling I can only describe as ‘irritating’. However, it is bearable (keep in mind the end results!). For me I took long deep breaths which helps the mind and body to stay relaxed. Naruschka explaining what she was about to do also helped.
Although very swollen, the end results where good. At the time I was overwhelmed with the look. To add I had no bruising, and after the procedure the cannula holes gave a look like bad acne. I did take arnica and zinc pre and post procedure. I am writing this 4 weeks post procedure and my sculptured look has soften immensely, and looks amazing, now I am immensely ecstatic!!
I have had great compliments, ‘you’re really pretty’ and the ultimate one was ‘are you a model?!’ wow at that time I think dermal filler wouldn’t cut it, my head was swelling!! LOL!! The main comment I get is, why do you wear makeup you dont need to....!!
Thank you Bill and Naruschka, you are a great team, highly recommended. If you are debating and pondering and unsure, don’t be you are in safe hands, go and get your procedure done, you will be pleased with the results! Read more

I wanted to share with you my tear trough treatment experience with Botonics in order to help those of you who are reading this review, contemplating tear trough (or any similar) treatments. 9 months ago I was in exactly the same position; I had seen a surgeon at TRANSFORM, hoping to have surgery to remove my bags but unfortunately I was told I was not a suitable candidate - I was told it would make my eyes look hollow and Ill. After being told I was not suitable for surgery, I saw the coordinator for the non surgical procedures. She recommended a treatment called derma-rollers (which she said she'd had done and showed me these before and after pictures of her bags disappearing). She explained that this would help even out the skin and reduce the sign of bags. Willing to try pretty much anything to look less tired (I was 24 years old, male and fed up with everyone asking me if I was tired), I opted to go ahead and arranged an appointment with the doctor.
When I came in for the appointment, the doctor told me that the derma-rollers wasn't the right option for me and that I'd not be happy with the results. She recommended I have filler placed into my cheeks. This wasn't something id given any thought to and I was apprehensive about having something injected into my face - as a result, I asked if I could go away and think about it and then book another appointment at a later date. Before leaving, the same coordinator who recommended the derma rollers began explaining that, as well as the derma rollers, she'd also had the cheek fillers and again reemphasised her before and after pics (which previously she'd attributed to the success of the derma rollers but now said it was due to the fillers).
I began to feel slightly uncomfortable with the coordinator but I was desperate to see an improvement so I went ahead and booked the appointment. A week later I went to the surgery ready for the filler - when I arrived I explained to the coordinator and the doctor that I had researched fillers online and that most sites recommended a treatment known as 'tear trough treatment' and that I wasn't sure having fillers put into my cheek would help. The coordinator immediately stated that the tear trough treatment was like playing Russian roulette and that most of the time your eyes will become permanently swollen - she then (after having only met me twice) stated that my eyes were like hers and that my tear duct didn't operate efficiently and as a result, my eyes would almost definitely swell up and that I should avoid the tear trough treatment. She then, surprisingly, showed me before and after pictures of her tear trough treatment; her eyes looked very badly swollen and puffy. She said it was taken months after the procedure and that it took 3 years to correct it. The doctor then explained that because it was so dangerous and because so many patients had experienced negative results, they no longer offered the tear trough treatment and cheek filler was my only option. Having set myself up for filler and having already left one appointment without any treatment, I decided to go ahead with the cheek filler.
The doctor was very quick putting two mls in my cheeks and only injected a couple of times and then used her finger to push it around (I'd read online that this wasn't good and ideally you should inject each time rather than try spreading it out with your finger). The cheeks looked okay and the filler didn't look bad however, it didn't help with my bags. It didn't reduce the appearance of my bags and I wasn't satisfied with the results - I did leave around £750 worse off though. Furthermore, they never called or emailed at any point afterwards to check up on me or to offer a follow up appointment. I felt the service was extremely poor and I felt I'd been misssold a treatment I didn't need.
Still determined to reduce the appearance of my bags, I continued to research this tear trough treatment. I'd read in many places that if you have the procedure completed by a qualified and excellent practitioner then the results will be outstanding; otherwise, the results can be devestating. I called up the hospital group and they explained that they did no offer tear trough treatment and recommended cheek filler, explaining the same dangers and concerns as TRANSFORM. Admittedly, this did make me nervous about seeking out the tear trough treatment however, I was determined to not look consistently exhausted at 24 years old!
Eventually I came across a review forum where people had named Botonics (specifically Bill and Naruschka Henriques) stating that they had received excellent treatment and the results were very good. I decided to phone and make an appointment to find out more about the tear trough treatment. When I called Bill sounded very friendly on the phone and so I decided to go ahead and make an appointment for that same week. I met with Naruschka in an evening slot (at around 7pm which worked well from a work perspective) and I asked many questions regarding the potential risks and whether I would be likely to suffer any or leave disappointment. She assured me that the risks were very low and that the patients she'd treated were all happy with the results. When I explained that I wasn't going to have the filler injected that evening and that I would go away and think about it, she didn't try and force me to get it done - unlike the previous company (TRANSFORM), I didn't feel under any pressure or obligation (because I'd taken up her time) to have this procedure. I went away and I thought about what we had discussed. I had a couple of follow up questions which I emailed to Bill and he responded almost immediately - always being very helpful despite the fact I still hadn't spent any money nor had I actually committed to having any treatment at this point in time. I decided to go ahead and book the tear trough treatment and arranged a second appointment. I went back a week later and had the filler injected under my eyes. Naruschka was a lot more thorough than the lady at TRANSFORM, spending four times as long injecting the filler and injecting in several different places. I had two mls worth of filler and the procedure was relatively pain free with very little discomfort. Over the coming days, I did bruise and my eyes did swell however, this went down quickly and the results after a week were fantastic!
My bags had completely disappeared for the first time in 6 years and the results far exceeded my expectations. I was so happy I couldn't stop looking at myself in the mirror - immediately friends and family noticed, commenting on how good I looked. Many described me as looking a lot healthier and refreshed. I gained back my confidence and I finally got my bags removed. Over the coming months, the results got better and better, with my closet friend stating that he didn't think at first the filler was a good idea however now, given my bags had completely disappeared, he was glad I went ahead with it.
It's now been about 8 since I had the tear trough treatment and testimony to the great results is the fact I have just booked to have them redone again. The results lasted about 8 months for me however, I've heard the more you have it done the longer each one lasts - so my first one at 8 months maybe shorter than you can expect after a few procedures.
Not only was the actual procedure carried out exceptionally well, the aftercare was second to none. I was invited back after a month for a review and my concerns I had at first (surrounding the swellig and brushing) were addressed immediately (they always responded to my emails quickly and returned my calls). They also helped address issues relating to my skin and have helped recommend treatments for this, superseding their role as part of the tear trough treatment. It's clear to me that Naruschka has a genuine passion for helping others and that it's not all about making money for them!
I would strongly recommend to anyone reading this review and thinking of having a tear trough treatment to go book an appointment. You can talk through any concerns you may have with them and they offer financial plans which means you don't always have to pay the entire sum upfront. Trust me, the few hundred pounds you spend will be money very well spent as it'll bring your face back to life and finally remove the appearance of those bags which are getting you down! Read more

As my skin needed a little attention I was also prescribed some Obaji products to help clear it up, Narushka could't have been more helpful. She showed me exactly what I needed to do, wrote up a personalised plan, and made sure I was confident before I left. After a short use my skin is glowing and I feel so confident, everyone has commented on how well I look.
To anyone that is looking to have a procedure done I couldn't recommend Botonics highly enough the whole experience has been phenomenal. So my advice to you, pick up the phone and call Bill, you will not be dissapointed! Read more

The people at Botonics were extremely supportive, informed and honest - never applying pressure on me to have the treatment. They contacted me for a chat straightaway, immediately putting me at ease and were very accommodating when organising my initial consultation. All communication was highly personable, friendly and professional. While I may not be a great candidate for the treatment I was enquiring about, I would not hesitate to use this company in the future. An excellent service, thank you very much! Read more

I have for the past 5 years been using Juvederm for lip enhancement, of which I have tried 4 clinics, both in the UK and abroad. I myself always research both clinic as well as the practitioner that administers the treatment thoroughly. Therefore, I was very disappointed when I always left unhappy. The issue was not so much in the way that they administered the Juvderm. I always felt that it was their lack of an aesthetic eye, and the lack of ability to develop a 'look' for me as an individual, as opposed to having a "one mold fits all' approach.
Finally, after having tried another clinic on Harley Street, which was known for its 'natural results', I was again disappointed to see that most of the product had been administered wrongly and I had developed a 'shelf' above my lip. Also, I used to develop severe swelling which at times lasted for over 2 weeks and once before a holiday, which was dreadful. The practitioner had not given me correct after care advice and after several failed attempts I gave up as I had developed a severe reaction and I had to simply leave my lips to heal.
When I first had my consultation with Naruschka, she was able to help me achieve the results that I wanted, adapting where she placed the injections based on my facial shape and mouth, giving me a personalised look which I was complimented for often.The shelf like effect has started to disappear (thankfully) and I am now gradually being able to have natural looking, plump lips without the duck effect. Furthermore, the staff at Botonics have been very helpful and accommodating when it comes to answering any questions, especially when helping me with aftercare, where I was given advice regarding several products that I could use, and for the first time I had very very minimal swelling which has been wonderful, as I for the first time in five years of having this treatment was able to go out in public the same day.
I would strongly recommend this clinic and can't thank them enough for the amazing results they have helped me to achieve! Read more

I am a nervy patient and have always had lots of questions about my treatments and Narushcka has always been very patient in providing me with all the information I need to put my mind at rest. She is not pushy at all, and if she doesn't think a treatment is for you, she will tell you, rather than just see the £ signs.
She is calming and professional during treatments as well and really puts your mind at ease. I was very nervous when I went to have tear trough fillers, but she made me feel at ease throughout the whole treatment and was always at hand with any follow questions that I had after the treatment.
Bill is great at organising appointments and always keeps in touch with you to ensure that things are scheduled properly. Great customer service all round from him too.
I honestly wouldn't go anywhere else for treatment as I know I am in the best hands possible with the guys at Botonics. Read more

Have been wearing all of shirts (yes even pastel colours) for work and social events without the slightest sign of sweat! This is an astonishing improvement as I was a very excessive sweater before!
The procedure was quick and easy and I would highly recommend both Botonics Plastic Surgery Group and Naruschka Henriques who carried out my botox.

I met with Naruschka initially in Battersea, but during the treatment she noticed that I was swelling and advised to have a follow-up treatment. So I met with Naruschka again, this time in Harley Street. I was taken back by her observations, I have had fillers done in the past but no one has ever stopped due to me swelling, despite the fact it makes complete and utter sense to. Naruschka advised that with the swelling present it is hard to establish if she is placing the filler in the appropriate way/ area. She is an absolute pleasure and a great subject matter expert, which gives me piece of mind.
I am more than happy to refer others to her and will come back when top ups are required. Read more

why did i wait so long?
Wednesday, April 9, 2014
after years of deliberation of whether i should get fillers in my cheeks ,and lower part of my face ,i finally went for it , but not before countless questions (which i fitted in during my botox top ups) and other consultations..Narushka assured me what would work ,and what would not ,she was calm and professional ( even though i must of driven her mad) i was a nervous wreck ,of not knowing what the outcome would look like....
so i finally went for it , first of all just a just a small amount of filler , as she assured me it would be best for me to take baby steps. After the second visit and last top up ,i am thrilled with the results. I simply cannot believe that it has taken me so long! Read more

Upon my first visit, the friendliness of the staff and the personal service that I felt they really cared about me and giving me exactly what I wanted, was a huge attraction. I went ahead with my botox there and I have never looked back. The results were so much better and really amazing. My sister was so surprised with the results, she started to come too. I would never use anywhere else now. Narushka is absolutely brilliant and takes how you want to look extremely seriously.
I have also had an upper eyelid lift with Botonics and this has also taken years off my appearance.
Bill is such a friendly voice on the phone and listens to what I really want to achieve. They work with you to give you the absolute best results. I am so pleased that I found the best place to have my botox done and my minor operations. These guys really care and offer a fantastic follow up care service too.
I cannot recommend Botonics enough, I would never trust anyone else now that I've found the best. Read more

After treatment Dr.Naruschka advised about after care and what to expecth in the next tree days. The next day I was a little bit swollen but no bruises at all. Although I felt bit of discomfort in my right eye during sneezing or coughing I contacted Bill immediately and he arranged appointment with Dr.Naruschka straight away who resolve the discomfort by massaging filler. I attended my 2 weeks follow up appointment and everything is great and it was definitely worth it every penny. Read more

Naruschka is calm, professional and very knowledgeable and she explained why my skin was reacting the way it was and what could be done about it. She prescribed me a course of prescription skin care from Obagi and a skin peel.
I was nervous in the run up to the peel but Bill allayed my fears by answering all of my (innumerable) questions about the treatment, what to expect and aftercare; he was truly brilliant.
When the peel itself came around Naruschka explained every step of what she was doing and was so incredibly meticulous with how she treated my skin and applied the peel. Due to the detailed advice from Botonics I knew what to expect in terms of aftercare and how my skin would look (including that I would need to cut bits of skin off with nail scissors rather than peel them to avoid scarring). I'm happy to report that when my skin had finished peeling it looked the best it ever had. My skin has never been so clear, smooth, scar free and poreless. I am absolutely delighted. Naruschka has given me the skin I never thought I could have. I continue to have follow up appointments with Naruschka (which are free, which is practically unheard of for London) and I know that my face is in great hands. I thoroughly recommend Botonics and Naruschka Henriques for anyone who has any issues with their skin. Read more

I met Naruschka for my consultation. She was calming and friendly and left it totally up to me to decide whether I wanted to go ahead with the procedure. I didn't think twice as she was so professional and talked through in detail any of the questions/complications I had thought of. The procedure was quick and the swelling only lasted a few days, allowing me to carry on as normal. She uses the safest method of doing the treatment and is careful and precise. I have now been back twice and I would definitely recommend this to anyone considering it. I am so happy with the results!
A massive thank you to both Bill and Nauruscka, I'm so glad I found Botonics! Read more

I heard about botox injections to reduce the muscle and researched this for over a year. Finally, I decided to use the services of Botonics and I am so glad that I did!
Narushka is extremely skilled at what she does yet she is down to earth and is easy to relate to, I was comfortable and the treatment was almost painless. Three months down the line I can not believe my own face and the freedom that has come with feeling normal is indescribable.
I want to use this opportunity to thank Narushka and Bill (who is so so pleasant!) for taking me through this treatment. I will heartily recommend this team to anyone. Read more

The consultation was with my doctor, Dr Joffily who was very friendly and honest about the procedure. He made me feel at ease and I trusted him. The pricing was also straightforward, without any extra money being added on for the consultation or anything else. And I was happy that I was given the option to have the procedure carried out under local anaesthetic as it felt less drastic and I could be picked up straight afterwards instead of spending most of the day in hospital. The procedure was not as painful as I expected, it was no worse than going to the dentist! Dr Joffily and his assistant talked to me to keep me calm and distract me and it was over quickly.
I am very happy with the results as it looks natural and because the incisions were made at the back of my ears there is no visible scaring. It has made more of a difference to my confidence then I anticipated, it is nice being able to do different hairstyles and tie my hair up when I am exercising without feeling self-conscious about my ears.
I would recommend Botonics due to the friendly and low pressured approach which I have found rare in the cosmetic surgery industry. Read more

The procedures I have had done include derma fillers to enhance the cheekbones, Botox and also fillers in lips and smile lines. Naruschka is very attentive to your needs
and I am always extremely happy with the results. I would not trust my face to anyone else.
I have seen plenty of other cosmetic dermatologists in the past, but Naruschka is simply the best. In other clinics I have often ended up with bruises and swelling in my face for days afterwards, but Naruschka is so gentle and skilled with the needle that I don't bruise at all after her treatment. She knows exactly where to inject filler to enhance your beauty and to give you natural, subtle results.
Botonics has my highest recommendations and would recommend them to anyone. Read more

I'm pretty scared of needles and Naruschka has a really calming way about her, to the point where I'm totally relaxed when the procedures are taking place.

My consultation was free and very informative, I didn't feel any pressure to have the treatment.
Naruschka was very professional and made me feel at ease. She gave me lots of information on the treatment and the aftercare.
I decided to go ahead with the treatment which was totally pain free and quick.
I am so happy with the results I would 100% say to anyone thinking about having the treatment to go ahead and do it.
It has given me so much confidence and has made me feel amazing
I absolutely love the results.
This was my birthday present to myself. The best birthday present ever.

Though I was assured the treatment was going to be quick and uncomplicated I was still a bit nervous, as this was my first experience with botox. But the botox-procedure itself was almost a non-happening, as it literally lasted about 9 minutes without any pain whatsoever. The lovely and friendly Naruschka Henriques, who is the specialist, made me feel completely safe and relaxed and talked me through the entire thing. The place itself (10 Harvey street) was another thing that impressed me: Naruschkas office is a luxurious old-school Victorian room that almost makes you feel instantly beautiful, and is certainly far away from any uncanny hospital setting (which really helps).
For about two weeks after the treatment my face was swelled up (as I was told it was going to be) as a reaction from the needles. But when the swelling faded my face started to get slimmer from day to day, which was really fun to observe and very confidence boosting. And it wasn’t all in my head either as I was starting to get compliments by others (probably thinking I had lost weight – cause that’s basically what it looks like: same face only slimmer).
When it comes to side effects I can’t really say I’ve noticed any other than slight weariness after eating a big meal, but definitely no pains.
Four months and another treatment later (just as pleasant as the first time) I’m very happy for undergoing this treatment and would have done it years ago if the idea had struck me. I feel lucky to have found Botonics as I can’t imagine the service being any better or the staff any more helpful. I can easily recommend this bruxism treatment for any of you out there looking to do something about your problem. Read more

Only once I came upon Botonics and read the positive reviews that I decided to reconsider and booked in a Consultation with Naruschka. She was very professional, took the time to discuss all options and concerns, and was not in the least pushy, which these days is truly a positive point. One should not feel pressured into such a procedure, but she put me at ease, and from her before/after photos, it was clear that Naruschka has talent and experience in successfully treating this area. I decided to proceed with the treatment. For two weeks prior to the procedure, I stopped all vitamins/supplements , took no painkillers and took arnica. To my astonishment, I experienced very very little bruising. I was concerned about not appearing overtreated but Naruschka has an aesthetic eye for detail and preferred to have me come back to see how my eyes had settled prior to injecting all the filler at once. I could not be happier with my results. Prior to this procedure, I was often asked if I was tired. 2 weeks afterward, my GP expressed surprise at my age, thinking that I was younger and I had not heard anything like that in a long while ! Therefore I thank Naruschka and Botonics and strongly recommend doing your homework and you will find that you can trust Botonics for the highest quality, professional treatment. Read more

I decided to go ahead with tear trough treatment and a nose enhancement treatment. Initially I was very nervous, and like many of you have come across some real horror stories online. On my first consultation with specialist Narushka, I immediately felt at ease. She was very knowledgeable and had a lot of experience on the anatomy of the face so was able to answer every question I threw her way. She explained the procedures from how she was going to do them, to how painful they were as well as aftercare. She was very friendly and I felt no pressure on needing to committ. However, I decided to opt for both treatments as I felt comfortable with Narushka. Both procedures were a lot less painful than expected, and I couldnt be happier with the results! Bill called me to organise payments as well as advise on any aftercare regimens etc which was really great and reassuring too. Both Narushka and Bill make a great team. I would recommend Botonics to anyone! Read more

During the consultation Naruschka answered all my questions fully, she is an expert in her field is passionate about her work and clearly cares about her patients. She is very calming in her manner but makes sure you are fully informed about the potential side effects and makes sure you are fully ready to go ahead and are making the right decision for you.
I nearly bottled out of the treatment at the last minute but am so glad I went through with it. The procedure itself took about 30 mins. I had just under 2 ml altogether. I had numbing cream on before and although you can feel it when the needles go in it doesn't hurt at all, I would describe it as an unusual sensation but not at all painful.
The next day I was swollen yes but nothing a pair if sunglasses couldn't hide. I followed the aftercare and by the following day I had mild swelling but barely even noticeable really. The next day...... Wow. I was over the moon!!!! The swelling had fully gone, I returned to work and not an eye bag insight. It's feels brilliant and I would recommend to anyone thinking about using Botonics. I couldn't be more happy. On a side note Bill has the highest standards of customer service. He is friendly very accommodating and always replies quickly. Read more

My treatments with Naruschka have been fantastic. She has never rushed the treatment or me. We talk through every aspect of what we plan to do and her explanations ensure I am confident in my understanding of procedures. Naruschka is gentle and kind; I genuinely feel she cares about each and every patient and speaks about her work with such grounded positivity. She doesn't over promise and her skills are proven in her work.
I initially found Botonics searching for nonsurgical rhinoplasty; I had a rhinoplasty to correct very traumatic break in my nose and septum, but the surgeon was a little heavy handed and I subsequently have asymmetry, scar tissue, raised nostril and saddle, with chipped bridge bone making wearing glasses and sunglasses very painful. I had toyed with another surgery but they felt it required bone from my rib. In searching for an alternative I stumbled over Botonics. After submitting interest and quickly hearing from a very well informed, friendly and polite Bill I had my consultation in which Naruschka outlined the possible outcomes and how she felt she could help, showing me examples, thoroughly examining my nose, going through my entire medical history, and of course discussing my hopes. I could not have felt more at ease and booked to have the treatment. Funnily enough, I wish I had booked a larger session in order to have done the treatment at that initial consultation.
Subsequently I have also had tear-trough treatment and we are discussing some additional subtle refreshes in other areas. My nose is so subtly changed, but to me the changes are enormous. I feel happy to look at people straight on, have my photo taken face on and the difference in my confidence is huge. I'm incredibly happy. As with the tear-trough treatment, I look like a better version of me. I couldn't have hoped for any better. Again there was no rushing. My nose was treated over two sessions, a fortnight apart, to ensure optimum results.
Naruschka has become a friend. I enjoy going to see her, chatting and catching up, all the while knowing I'm going to leave feeling happier and looking my best (maybe not as I leave the clinic, but I am sure you get my meaning). What more can you ask for? You can never ask a silly question, or need too much information. It's a unique way of treating patients in such a saturated and money driven area of aesthetic improvement. Additionally I like the honesty and transparency with Bill and Naruschka. There's never an awkward chat about cost or paying making the transactions pleasant.
Overall I cannot recommend Botonics enough. A great team with pride in making their clients happy. Bill is a fantastic and Naruschka is a wonderful practitioner. Thank you both. Read more

I used to hide my eyes with glasses and never put much make up as they used to look awful even with make up. Now, i am surprised that how it has changed my eyes, my skin shines and my eyes looks so much better. I am so happy with the treatment and will do in the future instead of wasting money on eye creams. The best thing about treatment is, it last for 12 to 14 months. Read more

On the day of the procedure I arrived at the surgery to be greeted by a friendly nurse who went through some paperwork. Dr. Joffily knows what he is doing, and the entire procedure was performed in quite a relaxed environment while the nurses regulalry making sure I was fine.
After the procedure they prepared some nice coffe for me and I walked out to my taxi to head back home. The next day I recieved a call from the manager at Botonics to make sure that everything was fine. I went back to see the doctor after the surgery and we were both happy with the results. Read more

As this was my first cosmetic procedure I was very anxious but the same time excited to get the procedure done. Fortunately Naruschka completely understood what my concerns are and addressed them accordingly. She gained my trust immediately as a very experienced and confident specialist.
The procedure took about 30 minutes and itself hurt quite a lot and my lips were sore and swollen for the first 2 -3 days but I was fully recovered within 4-5 days. I was very happy with the results immediately after the procedure. Now my lips look and feel very natural.
Botonics Plastic Surgery Group undoubtedly earned my trust. As I really felt listened to and the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. Read more

My specialist is Naruschka and coordinator is Bil. They are very friendly, professional, exemplary and knowledgeable and provide personal service too. They do not put me under any pressure into buying the treatment and for this, I am very pleased.
The prices were discussed and agreed and it is transparent from the outset, prices on their website is exactly what they charged and there are no hidden charges
I would definitely recommend Botonics Plastic Surgery anyone who is looking to have things done to enhance what they already have.
Well done! Read more

There was no pain from the injection going in very easy flowing and fast, once Naruschka (Botonics) had finished I looked in the mirror and started really getting emotional after all these years the problem was fixed and I feel almost instant relief.
The bruising is minimal and the pain is far to none, an hour treatment and you’re done! I have been to see Naruschka (Botonics) 3 times now and keep coming back for the same boost of confidence; I have been in talks with her about dermal fillers for my cheeks and Botox around the forehead area, which I’m very keen to explore.
I don’t like to speak about money but the rates for the customer service you receive is exceptional, the payment plan is a really good way of maintaining your look and being able to afford it!
The word that comes to mind every time I refer somebody to Botonics is ‘consistency’ in the world we live today many people do the same job but very few are willing to go that extra mile and deliver every time.

Deep under eye circles have been a problem for me as far back as I can remember. I joke that I was born tired, but that's how long I've had a problem with my eyes and so when my mum found out that something could be done about them I jumped at the chance. We both researched many clinics and went for several consultations and different places but in the end chose Botonics not only because of their reasonable price but more importantly because of how pleasant Bill and Naruschka were when we met them.
Although it is a very delicate procedure, Naruschka helped me feel relaxed and totally at ease - she could have been giving me a manicure, that was how easy the whole procedure felt! Naruschka was very patient and friendly, talking me through each step and checking I was alright, there wasn't even a second where I felt I was "just another client". What's more, upon completing the treatment I was pleasantly surprised when a couple of days later Naruschka and Bill called and asked me to come back because they weren't completely satisfied with how the treatment had gone. My left tear trough needed a little more work than my right and I was really impressed that they would call me back in to make sure everything was perfect.
It is wonderful to wake up and actually look rested, and even look great after a late night! My only regret is that I did not know about the tear trough treatment years ago. I'm over the moon with the results, could not be happier!!
I would absolutely recommend Botonics to anyone and I myself will definitely be back for further treatments. Read more

After the treatment, my eyes looks much better, bright and not swollen or tired. I don't even have to put a lot of concealor to hide any dark circles and tiredness. It has changed my eyes and texture around my eyes. I am much confident and hardly wear glassess now. I wake up in the morning and just a tiny make around my eyes makes it look now perfect.
I am model and actress and it is very important for me to have better eyes which doesn't look tired. eyes matters and it is main feature of face. I look much better and does'nt look old. I am more confident in front of camera and the best thing is i don't have put enough concealor to hide any thing anymore.
I will suggest anyone this treatment if you suffer from you tired eyes and swollen eyes. This treatment will make a lot of difference. I have tried many creams and spent money on expensive creams but nothing has shown my the difference like this.
The treatment was not painful and Naurauska was very good with me during treatment and i didn't feel any pain at all. She explained everything to me about the treatment. I will ofcourse will stick to this treatment and Botonics which has boost my confidence. Read more

Since being with the Surgery Group i have had been able to grow in confidence, at first i thought it would not work on me, I'm glad to have been proven wrong. The folks are great and i was lucky to have a top surgeon (Dr Nurein and his helpful and skilled assistants) to have met my expectations and beyond.Today, i feel like a new person always rather than just when i worked out at the gym and changed my physical appearance. The only thing is, that once the dream becomes reality you want more!. Totally recommend it for those that have tried everything. Read more

29th Sep 2012.
Exactly two weeks after the vaser lipo procedure with Botonics, I am wearing my pants with confidant! I am so satisfied.
Dr Nurein, never missed a phone call and always returned my concerns and questions, Bill, never missed an email and he always double checked with me if everything is going as expected, Aiste , the friendliest nurse welcomed me back when I made my first visit after the procedure with Dr Nurein.
The massage therapy with Helen Fox was amazing; I noticed the improvements day after day. One day while I was doing the massage, she told me I think you should get smaller garments (I was given Medium), I was so happy that within the first two weeks my size was changed from Medium to Small! The amount I paid started to show in my body such a great investment. It is the first time I do something ONLY for myself and really it was worth it.
I was told that I should see the end result in 6-8 weeks, cant wait to see it!! Today I am supposed to go to the gym as I was advised not to go for 2 weeks until everything is back to normal, i am really excited.
I will keep you posted with further improvements. My advice, never lose chance doing something for yourself especially with botonics.

Day-1-my vaser lipo( inner thigh, outer thigh,knees and flanks) at Botonics.
Well, I will start with the free consultation I had with DR.Nurein. I asked like hundreds of questions and all were answered with kindness and respect. Not only that, although I have been asked not to make a decision at the time of consultation I was ready to sign an agreement and do the procedure immediately. I never done operations before and I was extra scared. But DR.Nurein told me everything I would expect during and after procedure he is so professional and knows exactly what he is doing.
Bill , my coordinator, the most amazing person in the world made everything easier, he treated me as if he knows me long time ago I felt I'm among family and seriously in safe hands. The care i saw gives an impression as if im a VIP.No matter how many times I changed the number of areas I want it to be done he was always flexible with it. Believe it or not Bill was the first who I called while setting in starbux after I had my procedure of four big areas!
Dr. Nurein I caused him so much headache , I have blood phobia you can imagine how many times I stopped him to take a break! Although i caused him delay and stress He kept on apologizing for me!!! He asked me to call anytime if I need any help.
The nurse, Aiste, was an angel on earth, she kept on holding my hands to make sure I'm fine!! All the time for over 3 hours, she cleaned me, dressed me up and gave coca cola to relax!!! I was treated as if I'm in 5 stars hotel.
I will keep you all posted about my case once I finish my 6 massage sessions(inclusive of total price)
Thank you so much Botonics, Bill, DR.Nurein and Aiste for making the procedure easier and smoother than my expectation !!
It is one of a life experience and I would highly recommend it to everyone who want to go for vaser lipo. I seriously don't mind to go for same procedure again if I had other areas that need to be done. Read more

Have been battling with this uncomfortable and inconvenient issue for quite some time.
Booking the appointment:
Found botonics via the web, website was informational and looked professional and accessible.
Called the number on website and was greeted by a very friendly and professional botonics representative.
I explained the reason for my call, rep was knowledgeable and extremely helpful and scheduled an appointment with Naruschka for me at a time that was convenient for me. Received confirmation email immediately, as promised.
Clinic and treatment:
Central location, easy to get to
Botonics shares a building with other practices on Harley Street, so the reception is shared.
Welcome at reception was pleasant with only a short wait. Access to treatment room is via a lift or stairs to the top floor of the building.
Welcome by Naruschka was very professional, yet friendly, relaxed and personable.
Naruschka covered off all the aspects of an initial visit (treatment need assessment, medical details, any questions I had) and explained the procedure well. At no point did I feel rushed and our conversation led naturally to the beginning of the treatment.
Naruschka builds rapport quickly, is happy to answer any questions and makes you feel at ease during the treatment.
She carries out the procedure skilfully and at a pace that is neither rushed nor slow but just at the right speed. Whilst concentrating on her work, Naruschka is happy to chat and is a great conversation partner. This, again, contributes to an overall relaxed and positive experience of a potentially uncomfortable procedure.
The treatment was a complete success, underarm sweating is reduced dramatically to virtually zero, even in high-pressure or stressful situations, that usually triggers the condition.
The effects of the treatment are temporary (which is the nature of the treatment) and I have now booked my next appointment with Naruschka.
I can confidently and wholeheartedly recommend seeing Naruschka at Botonics and would do so to any of my friends. Read more

I was quite apprehensive as I work as a Model and I my work depends on my face.
Narushka laid my fears and doubts at rest very quickly,understanding the results i wanted and reassuring me by answering patiently all the thousand questions i bombarded her with.
I had the lines between nose and mouth done,and she did such excellent job,it lasted more than a year until i saw her again to have it done again!
She also injected a small amount of derma filler into my top lip,as it has become slightly thinner with age.The result is brilliant,very subtle but i feel like my lips are back to how they supposed to look!
I am thrilled and will be back for more in the future!Highly recommend. Read more

I booked my Vaser Lipo procedure for the following week and I've never looked back. Amazing results!! In total since, with sensible eating, no carbs...I've lost 9kgs but most importantly I can see and am so proud of my new found curves. Elated, truly elated.
For the first 10 days, restricted in the specially made body suit but very quickly it became my new best friend.
Pre and post procedure, I have to say, I was also made to feel at complete ease with Bill, on the phone. Any questions, however big or small, nothing seemed to much of a problem....always with his calming, caring voice always put me at ease, Thankyou once again Bill.
I had never in my life spent so much for myself but I can say, with my hand on my heart, It was soooo worth it! I feel at least 10 years younger and the new found confidence and bounce in my everyday life as a mum to two, is incredible.
We all deserve to treat ourselves and I would and have highly recommend it to anyone.
I truly wake up and go to sleep smiling......

My only reservation is that I was not fully prepared for what I would be like post-surgery... however that was due to me not questioning further on the information that I had been given. Had I questioned further what was meant by a few of the terms used, I have no doubt at all that I would have been told (and it wasn't enough to have put me off if I had known what was involved with the "drains" that were installed - it would have just come as less of a shock).
8 Months on and I couldn't be very much happier with the results. Read more

My surgeon, Dr Grant Hamlet, is fantastic, a complete perfectionist and amazingly knowledgeable. From the moment he drew on my legs during my initial consultation I knew I was in good hands and that I'd found the surgeon for me. At no point did I have any second thoughts about going ahead or qualms over my choice of surgeon.
Having elected for a general anaesthetic the procedure itself was painless and when I woke up I was in a safe hospital environment surrounded by a lovely bunch of recovery staff checking I was ok and that I knew who I was. I won't pretend I wasn't slightly uncomfortable after the procedure but I was prescribed meds to keep any pain or discomfort to a minimum.
As part of the package I have been having after-care massage sessions with the lovely Raddy Dimitrova. Raddy immediately made me feel at ease from the moment I met her which is great as you're really not feeling your best when you first see her. She explains everything she's doing and I've been enjoying the sessions so much I've booked a few more to ensure my good progress continues!
So 2 weeks on I'm still a little swollen but the majority of the bruising is gone. I don't feel any discomfort and, most importantly, I can already see the difference. I'm so happy with my new shape and I cannot recommend botanics, Dr Hamlet or Raddy enough.
Friends and family have asked if I would do it again if I could turn back clock and yes I would...absolutely!! Read more

Being someone who is not a fan of needles (like most!) I was a slightly nervous about discomfort before the procedure however Naruschka talked me through everything which I felt left me feeling extremely at ease. She then applied a numbing cream to minimise any discomfort. Once the area was numb she began injecting a filler into my top lip. Over all the procedure was far less painful than I had original expected and was over reasonably quickly, around 30mins. After the procedure I had minimal swelling which I would say was totally gone after 2 days. The day after the procedure I did give Bill at Botonics a call to ask a few more question about healing mainly due to curiosity and as always he was there ready to answer any questions and help me with any problems. The difference this small procedure has made to the overall look of my face is incredible. Because the enhancement was subtle enough to not look 'done' but substantial enough to make enough difference i have friends and family saying how good I look but not being able to put a finger on what is different which I have to merit Naruschka for! I would highly recommend a consultation with Naruschka to see what she can do for you and I would highly recommend Botonics as a company for fantastic value for money and excellent results. Read more

The procedures I have had done include derma fillers to enhance the cheekbones, Botox and also fillers in lips and smile lines. Naruschka is very attentive to your needs
and I am always extremely happy with the results.
I have seen plenty of other cosmetic dermatologists in the past, but Naruschka is simply the best. In other clinics I have often ended up with bruises and swelling in my face for days afterwards, but Naruschka is so gentle and skilled with the needle that I don't bruise at all after her treatment. She knows exactly where to inject filler to enhance your beauty and to give you natural, subtle results.
Botonics has my highest recommendations and would recommend them to anyone. Read more

The procedure itself was less painful than expected. I was even entertained at times looking at the team work and my fat leave my belly! Dr. Nurein proved to be highly professional and a perfectionist in what he does - which is what you should be looking for in this type of procedure. I am happier than I thought I would be as he went the extra mile :-) !
I am now recovering fast, yes I do have a few bruises but had very little swelling - most probably thanks to Dr. Nurein but also to the included 5 sessions of lymphatic massage provided but yet another excellent professional, Fabia Santos!
All in all, I couldn't be happier. This procedure is in general expensive, but Botonics has provided me with an exceptionally good value for money, I am amazed at the results. So, I can only praise them and recommended them wholeheartedly!! Read more

Bill was wonderful from the very first phone call, and able to arrange an initial consultation around my schedule. After I went ahead with the surgery he was equally attentive, and checked in on me several times after surgery to check my on recovery.
Whilst the service was terrific, it was my initial conversation that persuaded me that Botonics was the right choice. Dr Hamlet took the time to answer all my questions, but also made sure I was clear as to what could be realistically achieved with the surgery. On the day itself, the team assisting Dr Hamlet were wonderful, and made sure I was calm and comfortable before and after the operation.
I have been delighted with the service from both Bill and Dr Hamlet, and am extremely happy with the results. Read more

I hated my 'moobs' for many years, my left side was worse than my right, the nipple noticeably lower. I could feel breast-like material bouncing when I ran. My moobs were not huge, I am not fat, I work out, most people would not have noticed as I wore clothes that hid my chest, never wore tee-shirts and never got undressed in public. It took me a great deal of time to commit to the free appointment and to submit myself to an examination, mainly because I was ashamed of my tits and of the stigma of plastic surgery.
Dr. Hamlet identified all my hang ups perfectly during the short examination. He explained the reasons for the appearance of my chest and precisely what he could do to make it better. He advised that I should have mid-def vaser to chest, axilla (the sides of my ribcage) and a fat transfer to my pectorals which would 'lift' the excess skin and make my chest more androgyne and square. He was also able to show me many before and after images which were much better and more demonstrative than those on the website.
The cost was considerably higher than I had initially expected. However when you take into account all that is involved as well as the end result I think it represented excellent value for money.
On the day of surgery I was naturally anxious but Dr. Hamlet and the surgery team were very reassuring it was ,almost, fun. Dr Hamlet decided that my vaser treatment (the fat removal from chest and axilla) would not yield enough fat to adequately plump up my pectorals and that he could remove more fat from my waist area to top it up.
The procedure itself was done under local anaesthetic and was akin to a long root canal at the dentist. I was numb and mercifully unable to see the process. It is unnerving to have someone rooting about under your skin with a canula but the nurses and Dr. Hamlet were brilliant at keeping me informed and maintaining a light-hearted banter throughout. It took approximately 2 hours in theatre which went by very quickly. In the end Dr. Hamlet took 1ltr of extra fat from my love-handles. I was fitted with a foam band round my chest and a compression garment. I lay down for a few hours afterwards, ate lunch and read my book. I was at home by late afternoon.
I had three aftercare massage sessions with lovely nurses and wore the foam band for a week, I also wore the compression garment for three weeks. The foam was bulky and difficult to disguise under clothes but the compression garment was invisible. I have recently had my one-month check-up with Dr. Hamlet. I am happier with my chest, the left pectoral line is still slightly odd and I may have further treatment to perfect it in the future but I will now be able to wear tee-shirts without worry, my posture has improved as has my confidence. I am still healing and my bruises are fading, soon I will be back in the gym. Due to the removal of the extra fat from my waist I no longer have love-handles either.
The experience was far better and easier than I had thought it would be. Bill was available on the phone whenever I needed him. Dr. Hamlet was excellent. I wish I had done this years ago. I recommend anyone who is thinking about this procedure to go with Botonics, they are the real deal in an industry known for charlatans. Read more

After many months of research I came across botonics and made an enquiry for a free consultation as botonics work with many well-know reputable surgeons, I also checked out the previous reviews and found that they were very positive.
I spoke with Bill and I made a consultation with Dr. Grant Hamlet and went along with an open mind. Immediately I felt at ease and felt that Dr. Hamlet was taking my desired outcome into consideration as well as offering me as much advice as possible. I knew immediately that he was the surgeon I wished to have my procedure with. Bill was great as he offered me a consultation which fitted in with my working hours.
I liaised with Bill who offered me a second free-of-charge consultation with Dr. Hamlet so I could be sure I would be getting the results and the care I needed to ensure the choice to have Vaser would be something I wouldn't regret! Dr. Hamlet was very thorough and answered all the questions I had and gave me various contact numbers so I could contact him at any time if I should have any other questions or problems/queries after the procedure.
After confirming with Bill that I wished to have my procedure with Dr. Hamlet, he helped me to secure my preferred date for the procedure so I could work around my personal and professional life, he also arranged my pre-procedure blood checks very early in the morning so I could attend before work and not need to take time off. He was very good with keeping me up-to-date with my results and things to expect before and after the procedure. We also managed to agree on a price which was very much appreciated as I did have a budget that I wished to stick too.
On the day of my procedure I checked into the hospital as instructed by Bill and the nurses made me feel very at ease. Dr. Hamlet took a lot of time marking up my body and taking pictures and made a huge effort to ensure I was relaxed and ready for surgery, I was alone the whole day and I didn't feel nervous at all, even when I went down to the theatre!
When I woke up in the recovery room after the procedure, I was helped by Tim who was fantastic and stayed with me the whole day. He ensured I was comfortable and as pain-free as possible. He also made sure I had something to eat even though eating was the last thing I wished to do!
Dr. Hamlet constantly stopped by my room to check how I was doing and after I had a sneak peek at my 'new' body I was over the moon with the results even though I was covered in marker pen!
Dr. Hamlet and Tim then helped me into my suit that I had to wear for the next few weeks, they were very careful to ensure I was in as little pain as possible and that I was looked after.
After a few hours in recovery I was allowed to go home and was provided with a huge selection of pain killers and antibiotics which were all included in the price which was good as the last thing I would want to do would be to make a trip to a pharmacy.
The following day Dr. Hamlet called me on my mobile to ensure I was coping OK. The pain was moderate to severe but much less than I expected considering I had 4 areas of my body treated at once. I was comfortable and the pain killers helped. Bill also called me to ensure the procedure went OK.
On the second day after the procedure I had my follow-up appointment with Raddy at the hospital, she was my physio and would provide me with the aftercare and ultrasound to ensure that I was healing as well as I could and that I would get the desired results.
The massage was painful but necessary and Raddy did everything she could to ensure I was comfortable, she was very professional throughout and I could even have a shower which was very much appreciated. She took a lot of pictures so I could see the progress and how different my body looked, even though it was only day two after the procedure I could see the change already, it was drastic but amazing, I couldn't believe how much Dr. Hamlet had removed but more importantly how much he had listened to me to ensure I got the results I wanted. Even the nurses that I met on the day of the procedure came up to see how I was doing which was nice as they had seen me mid-op so they came to see how I was doing as well as my new figure!
I had my second appointment with Raddy the following day, she changed my dressings and helped me into my garment after my shower, I felt completely at ease and she even gave me her number so I could call her if I had any questions. I have been seeing my own physio for the remainder of the follow-up treatments as I live in Kent, it is easier for me than to travel into London. Raddy called my physio directly to ensure he was up-to-date with my progress which he appreciated and he has been keeping Raddy constantly updated since.
It has been two weeks since my procedure and I do not regret anything, most importantly I am very happy I chose to run with botonics as Bill, Dr. Hamlet and Raddy have provided me with a better service than I could have hoped for. I have never once been kept waiting, or chasing for information or felt 'let-down' by the service I received, everything has been fantastic.
Bill has been great with helping me book my follow-up appointments with Dr. Hamlet and Raddy, I am glad I chose such professional people! I would highly recommend Dr. Hamlet and botonics. Read more

I have been using them for some years now for Fillers and Botox, I have used other companies in the past but once I was lucky enough to find Botonics I have never looked back.
I have several friends I have introduced to Botonics and they are as equally happy with the service and results as I am

Botonics offered me an excellent and free (!) consultation in which I had the opportunity to discuss everything that was on my mind starting from the procedure as such, the scar development to the financing. I especially appreciated the relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the fact that I was never pushed to a treatment. Another positive aspect was the fact that I could arrange a consultation in the evening hours enabling me to talk to my surgeon after work. In the end, both Bill and my surgeon, Mr Fallahdar, left such a good impression on me that I decided in favour of a tummy tuck.
The last few weeks before the treatment went very smoothly. I was always in close contact with Bill who supplied me with all the information necessary for me and whom I could always contact in case I had questions and who would reply me immediately. Thanks to all this, I was not nervous at all when I went to the hospital for my operation.
As a result of the general anaesthetic, I cannot say much about the operation as such, of course, but I remember that I felt perfectly fine after it had finished. The hospital staff was also extremely friendly and helpful and made my stay overnight as comfortable as possible. Both Bill and Mr Fallahdar had provided me with detailed information on how I should behave immediately after the tummy tuck.
On the very first day after the treatment, I tried to move a little (but not too much) and to walk a bit (in a stooped posture), thus trying to avoid just lying in bed for too long. I was given pain-killers by the hospital, but after the first day I stopped using them as I felt no pain. This is something which still amazes me now: Prior to the operation I was quite worried about the possible extent of the post-operational pain, but in fact there was basically none. Everyday I could noticeably feel my mobility return and after just one week, I was even able to return to work.
For the first 6 weeks I had to wear a special support garment to protect the scar and help the healing process, but already after the first one or two weeks, I no longer noticed I was wearing it. The only thing which was a bit hard to bear is the fact that during the first week I was not allowed to take a shower as the scar must not get wet.
After those first seven days, I had my bandages exchanged at the hospital and went for my first post-op consultation with Mr Fallahdar. I was extremely happy when I saw my new belly for the first time as it looked much better than I could even have expected! Mr Fallahdar told me that the swelling of my belly would need another 3 months to disappear and that my scar would take up to 9 months to basically fade.
From week 2 onwards I was able to remove the garment in the morning to take a shower and I was really amazed to see how the look of my belly and the scar improved from day to day and also to see the swelling disappear gradually. Around week 3 I had another consultation with my surgeon who was very satisfied with the progress of my scar-healing and who - at that point - showed me the pictures he had taken of my belly prior to the operation. The change was and is still unbelievable.
After the removal of the support garment in week 6 I started to massage the scar with body oil to keep it moist and I also recommenced going to the gym without any problems. The next appointment with my surgeon will be in month 3 after the treatment.
If I was asked whether I would undergo the same treatment with Botonics again, I would not hesitate for a second. I am completely satisfied with both the exceptional value-for-money, the consultation prior to and after the operation, the treatment as such and the way and speed my scar is improving. Having taken the step to have the excessive skin removed was one of the best decisions I have ever taken and I would recommend it any time! Read more

I approached Botonics after researching them up on their website and as they offered an advanced procedure called ‘vaser-lipo’ which was the trick to my success, I was happy to consider this procedure. What further convinced me to go ahead with this treatment at Botonics was the qualifications and skill of the surgeon Dr Joffily, who is a specialist in cosmetic surgery and in vaser-lipo procedures.
I had my procedure about 7 months ago, and the results have been fantastic and I am very pleased. Vaser-lipo is definitely a must for anyone considering cosmetic surgery. I would also recommended choosing a doctor like Dr Joffily, as this makes a great impact. I have been satisfied with Dr. Joffilys’ helpful and friendly approach. My deep thanks also go down to Bill for the service and support he provided me all the way through, he was really helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend Botonics to anyone for their cosmetic surgeries. Keep up the excellent work Botonics! Read more

Dr Joffily is one of a kind with excellent skills as surgeon and a a magnificent approach to patient care.
In my experience Botonics is always reasonably priced, procedures are carefully explained and professionally carried out and wonderfully pain free!
Botonics is ideally located in Harley Street so consultations take place in a spectacularly well-heeled environment.
When taking my booking Bill has often gone out of his way to accomodate me: nothing is too much trouble. He is very obliging, polite and clearly hands-on with a can-do attitude.
Clearly a first rate, five star company. I am one very satisfied Botonics customer. Thank you Dr Joffily and Bill! Read more
