Naruschka is also great at giving advice and reassurance if I raise an observation on anything. Last year my Botox felt like it was wearing off faster than normal and when I asked about this she mentioned I might have low zinc levels. I started taking zinc supplements and this solved the problem! It coincided with a big change I had made to my diet and I hadn’t realised the effect it had on my zinc! Narushcka always takes the time to listen and advise in every single appointment and so I’ve been very grateful for her expertise and knowledge! Read more

The result was transformative - after just a few weeks I noticed a change, and my skin completely cleared up. It was amazing! However, after around 3 years the spots started to return. I tried a salicylic acid peel, which worked for a while, but the procedure wasn't for me. I don't have the kind of lifestyle where I can hide away for a few days while my skin peels away!
After that, the consultant who I had been seeing throughout (another bonus - it's great being able to see the same person each time), suggested I try Roaccutane. I was then transferred to a Roaccutane specialist for my treatment. My first consultation with Dr Joshua was free, to check whether I was right for treatment. He was knowledgeable, supportive and very down to earth - again, I felt like he understood what I was going through and wanted to find a solution. At no stage did I feel pressured. The process and costs were made very clear upfront, so I knew exactly what to expect.
I'm now entering the final week of my Roaccutance treatment and my skin is incredible - I haven't had a single spot for 4 months! I've seen Dr Joshua every month for a check up (via video during lockdown) - to see how I'm getting on medically and emotionally, and Bill at Botonics has been looking after the admin side diligently - organising my prescriptions and even sorting out an 'at home' blood test during lockdown, which was easier than I thought it would be.
I would 100% recommend Botonics for this procedure - throughout they have been knowledgable, professional, caring and easy to deal with. The result we've achieved is great - I have a new-found confidence now that my skin is clear. Read more

I cannot recommend more highly the staff - Dr Joshua and my coordinator, Bill. The service was personal and the process was transparent. More people should be aware that there is a private route to treat acne and they should choose botonics. Read more

Communication with the Botonics team has been so helpful and whenever I have a question about my treatment they are always responsive via email or phone as well as being super friendly. Thanks to Botonics I am able to continue your treatment without interruption, which has been so important to me. I have got my second video call to check in with my treatment in a few weeks and I cant wait to continue working with Botonics for my roaccutane. Read more

I also had cheek fillers with Naruschka. I have had them before from different therapists but I am really pleased with what Naruschka has done - she assessed that I was missing more volume on one side than the other and tailored the dose accordingly. No other therapist has done this and, needless to say, the result is a lot better. I found the overall treatment took a little longer because Naruschka takes her time to get to know your face properly. She was also very sensitive to my desire not to look dramatically different and to take things slowly. I would recommend Naruschka full stop, but particularly if you are apprehensive about having these sorts of treatments and worried about being seen as having lots of work done.
The one thing I would say is that there is a short recovery time required after non-surgical rhinoplasty (Naruschka has a great video online about this online, I discovered!), as you might expect with an area as delicate as the nose. If you are likely to be self-conscious, I would recommend that you plan your treatment so you don't have to go to work or a social event for 48 hours (the day after is the worst day - even if your nose looked ok immediately after treatment, it will be very swollen the next!). Bruising was actually very limited and easily concealed; it was the swelling that was more of an issue. Since the first two days, some residual swelling has remained (particularly when I first get up in the morning), but it it is liveable with and it gets better every day as my nose settles back down to more refined contours. I would always definitely have treatment a good few weeks before a big event.
Even if you are worried about anything, the other great thing I have found with Botonics is the personalised interaction from an administrative perspective - Bill was my coordinator and he sorted out all of the procedural aspects and followed up by email the day after my treatment to check all was well and encourage me to take the various supplements designed to reduce swelling etc. Again, I have not experienced this level of service elsewhere.

i came across botonics online where i did thorough research.
i booked an appointment and was seen by a specialist very fast.
the consultation was free, my face was examined and i was asked a series of questions. i qualified for accutane which i was so happy about as i had seen amazing results from others.
i was on accutane for 6 months and i cannot express how happy i am with the results. i had very few side effects(dry skin and eyes), however i was seen every month to monitor my side effects as well as blood test to ensure every thing was ok.
the staff were super friendly and answered any questions i had and eased any worries i was experiencing.
i work full time but they allowed to book appointments to suit my convenience.
if you are suffering from acne i 100% recommend this service. i saw amazing results, had a smooth journey, was given advice on how to ease side effects, and received very helpful aftercare. Read more

I have been visiting Naruschka for a few years now and the result has been consistently great. No one noticed that I have had anything done, but all my family and friends are amazed about how young and fresh I look. I'll be following and using her service hopefully for a very long time and keep looking like I were always in my 20s! Read more

Miss nose from Wales
Tuesday, January 7, 2020
The heartache of a revision rhinoplasty was something I didn’t want to consider. I did have many consultations regarding revision surgery but due to the unpredictable results, possibly more scar tissue, over a year healing time and the possibility of further emotional scarring I chose to look into the possibility of non surgical rhinoplasty using fillers. I had many consultations with practitioners regarding nose fillers. Every consultation was at least a 7 hour round trip as I live in Wales but I didn’t give up hope I kept searching. I didn’t feel confident with any practitioner until I met Narushka.
Narushka instantly made me feel comfortable. She listened to my concerns and she could see and understand what I’d like to correct. She explained what she could achieve with nose filler and how she would preform the procedure and why she would use the particular filler she used. Narushka’s understanding of nasal anatomy is honestly more advanced than some ENT surgeons I consulted with. She kindly made a plan for my nose explaining the whole procedure and aftercare to me in fine detail. I never felt rushed or silly for asking the same questions 2 or 3 times. Narushka was the first person I met who genuinely wanted to help from her heart and doesn’t treat you like it’s a business. Her artistic eye and skill is phenomenal. The actual procedure didn’t hurt and the result was so beautiful. Finally a nose that fitted my face. I actually cried with relief that my nose nightmare was over. I thought filler would add bulk and make the nose bigger and wider. Not in the hands of Narushka - my nose was refined, elegant and gained the much needed projection. I’m happy for anyone to message me and I will share my pictures. I don’t write reviews but this was so important to me because after my rhinoplasty I discovered so many others that were also out there suffering with unfavourable results afraid to have further surgery and really not knowing where to go or who to trust because so many websites use fake pictures they have taken from the internet or modified themselves I felt a need to help others. Botonics was the only website that was super informative and showed results from every angle with before pictures. Please don’t give up hope. Narushka is amazing and she will give you the confidence to live happily again being able to forget about your nose and the emotional scarring that it causes. The best thing of all is the nose only better with time. I will be forever grateful to Narushka the Fairy God mother of healing noses. Bill was also wonderful, he too is very informative and organised. Read more

For me personally, other than dry skin, the side effects of Roaccutane is not that bad as Dr Zokaie always make sure that I am coping well with the side effects.
My experience with Botonics has been amazing. Since I am a university student in Manchester, it is hard for me to fit in the monthly blood tests, pregnancy tests and check ups in my schedule. However, Botonics is very flexible, they enabled me to do my blood tests and pregnancy tests at my convenience and later be assessed by Dr Zokaie. This, of course, makes me easier to continue my Roaccutane treatment whilst being a busy university student.
The staffs are also very friendly and helpful. They always reply to my email and enquiry very quickly and always make sure that I am satisfied with their service. I highly recommend Botonics to anyone who is suffering from acne. Read more

I decided to research some private dermatology clinics and came across Botonics. I read their reviews online and they offered the best package and price for the treatment I wanted.
I called botonics and they offered me an appointment on the same week to be seen by Dr Zokaie. The consultation they offered me with Dr Zokaie was free and there was no pressure for me to decide to proceed with the treatment on the day.
My experience with Botonics has been amazing. I was so pleased with the results I had just after 2 months on Accutane. I had always been self conscious about my acne and scars and wanted to treat is as soon as possible.
In my case I agreed on the same day to start treatment and on the same day I done a blood test which is required to start this treatment and on the next day my prescription was ready to pick up. I couldn't believe how quickly everything had been sorted and I was finally on my journey toward getting clear skin and getting my confidence back.
Thank you to Bill from Botonics for being very friendly and professional with everything. From booking my appointments, taking correct payments and always being available to answer any questions or concerns I may have.
I am now on my 7 month of accutane and completely free of acne on my face and back. I still have some scars on my back due to my acne being so severe but this can also be treated through Botonics which offer a wide range of treatments for acne scar removal.
I highly recommend anyone who is also suffering from acne to look into botonics and see what they have to offer. I am really happy with my results and would recommend botonics to anyone suffering from acne.
I wish somebody had told me about botonics sooner !! Read more

The booking process was smooth and efficient and I managed to get an appointment in good time. I was able to ask any queries prior to visiting and was also able to gain an insight into whether I’d be a suitable candidate for the treatment before attending by sending in pictures to be reviewed. This was very helpful. My point of contact was Bill who was also excellent. He was very easy to reach and responded swiftly throughout the process which was reassuring.
Even after reviewing my pictures and booking the appointment, the consultation was free and there was no pressure for me to decide to proceed on the day. I explained my concerns in the consultation and mentioned that I was always self conscious about the symmetry of my nose. Doctor Naruschka listened attentively and then performed an assessment for herself. She then advised me of what she felt would benefit me most in achieving a more balanced profile. I was conscious of not wanting my appearance to chance too drastically and was anxious in this way but she kindly settled my concerns.
The procedure itself was pain free and the results were excellent. She initially applied a numbing cream over my nose which took around 10 minutes to take effect so l barely felt a thing! Doctor Naruschka was very skilled and had good placement of the filler to give a more defined symmetrical profile after the treatment wad completed. She explained that I would possibly require a top up appointment once the filler had settled in order to obtain the best results but I was very pleased with even just the one treatment.
The recovery was very easy. I had very little bruising or swelling and had only a few marks on my nose of the needle incisions which were easily covered with concealer and faded within the next few days. I was back to my normal routine almost immediately and besides a little tenderness in my nose for the week , there was largely no other discomfort. The results where immediate and I was very happy. I will definitely recommend Doctor Naruschka. She is very competent in her work and definitely makes you feel like you are in good hands. I will be returning for further treatments with her.

Wow, I was so nervous, secretly excited but way to nervous.
Naruschka, was amazing, great care from start to end. Throughout treatment was gentle, conforting and a true expert in her field. Thank you so much for an excellent experience for the treatment, I was nervous and a tad scared off. Highly recommend Naruschka to all.
As a team from the first point of contact to initial appointment team were excellent and helpful.

I researched many private dermatology clinics, but Botonics seemed to have the most clear and well priced package with a breakdown of prices, and appointments available within 1 week.
From the first appointment to getting prescribed Roaccutane was just under 2 weeks - Dr Zokaie (my dermatologist at Botonics) was so helpful and let me know exactly how much medication I will be taking, the side effects, how long the process will be etc.
Furthermore, when I had any queries I would email Bill at Botonics and get responses within less than one working day. The 1-1 support is great as it means I feel supported through out the whole process - the advice was also honest and straightforward which I greatly appreciated!
The monthly blood tests were also arranged via Botonics, and the process was very easy with minimal hassle.
Botonics were also able to accommodate for any schedule changes I had due to me working full time, and had a wide range of timings available for the appointments.
Overall the quick, streamlined and hassle free process really makes the whole treatment worth the money, and I would recommend Botonics to anyone looking to start their treatment on Roaccutane. Read more

My dermatologist was also very friendly and experienced. He is a certified NHS Roaccutane consultant with many years experience with the treatment. After an initial assessment, he prescribed be Roaccutane after I passed by blood tests. He was also very patient in answering any questions or concerns I had regarding both the drug and the treatment (I had a lot of questions going forward with the treatment). Within 7 days of the initial assessment, I started by treatment, having easily filled my prescription at my local pharmacy.
Ultimately, this streamlined process was much easier and simple compared to the most other places. Not only was it fast, everything from payment to customer service was up to point. It was also great that the initial consultation and the first two blood tests were included in the initial payment. I would recommend botonics for those who are looking to begin Roaccutane treatment, and are hoping to get through it within a short period of time, as it would usually take much longer to undergo the treatment through the NHS. With the all inclusive treatment, botonics has definitely made what would have been a stressful process as stress free as possible. Read more

Really professional, nice and helpful team. Seemingly always on call, and willing to think of ways to make monthly doctor check-ups easier and more convenient! I lost one of my prescriptions after meeting with the doctor (stupid, I know!) and the team promptly sent out a new one, very kindly waiving the charge.
I couldn't have chosen a better company to do this treatment with, and can't recommend them highly enough! Read more

The clinic where I attend the monthly appointments is very professional, staff are very friendly and the doctor is extremely helpful and explains everything very clearly. I have had lots of questions about the medication itself, how it works, and what other products I should/shouldn’t be using at the same time, and the doctor has always taken the time to answer my queries even in between appointments via email. Having this 1-1 support is great.
Similarly, Bill at Botonics has been very accessible and easy to contact when it comes to arranging appointments with the doctor, making payments, and has taken the time to explain the process to me which I really appreciate. It has helped the whole process to run smoothly so far. I work full-time in East London and was initially concerned about how I would manage to attend the monthly check-ups as well as semi-regular blood tests. However thanks to their flexibility and good communication, I have been able to attend appointments before work or during lunchbreaks.
For these reasons and more, I would definitely recommend contacting Botonics to discuss your Roaccutane treatment for acne. Read more

The treatment itself is painless but expect your nose to be tender for a week afterwards, the worst being the day after. Your nose looks swollen and red for a few days, like you have a cold but makeup easily covers it. I did not go to work the next day but you could if you do not want the downtime.
The team who looked after me - coordinator Bill and specialist Naruschka Henriques - were brilliant. Everything was explained and I was made to feel comfortable throughout. Nice and relaxed atmosphere and there was no pressure to proceed with the treatment if I did not want to.
Natuschka also noticed sagging round my jawline which had happened due to recent weight loss and pointed out that my overall aesthetic could be improved by improving the transition from my jaw to chin. A couple of simple and painless minutes later and all sorted.
As you can see I am really happy with my experience and the great level of service I received. I will be returning. Read more

I had been unhappy about the bump on my nose for a long time - for as long as I could remember. I had considered rhinoplasty but was too nervous about the long-term results and, to be honest, couldn’t yet fund the large cost of it. When I learnt about non-surgical nose jobs, I began watching online videos and couldn’t believe how quick and effective it seemed, so I decided to reach out to Botonics clinic, book a consultation and find out for myself.
My specialist, Naruschka Henriques, was professional, friendly and highly knowledgeable. We spoke about the risks of the procedure and what she would do to prevent those from happening. She looked at my nose and told me how much filler I would need and the type of result I could expect. When I decided to go through with it, she also prepared me with after care information and things I could do to minimise bruising, such as apply bruise cream I bought from Superdrug.
They weren’t joking when they said this could be done within a lunch break. It was incredibly quick. This was my first procedure of this kind so I wasn’t prepared for the sensation of having fillers inserted, but all it was was mild discomfort and the sensation of needing to sneeze! Although it was quick, I could tell Naruschka very thorough and made sure my nose was even from the side profile.
My skin around the treated area was sensitive and hard to touch for a few days. I also had mild bruising, but that was easily covered with foundation. Today my nose feels like my nose. It looks so, so natural and I’m incredibly happy - and definitely having it again! Friends of mine who I had told about the procedure also cannot believe the difference. My nose is now straight and although it’s technically bigger, it looks smaller! Read more

All this changed when someone mentioned to me about a ‘non surgical nose job ‘ - I was all ears , but a little sceptical of how much of a difference it would make and would it be worth the money, pain and downtime. I started googling before and after pictures and was pleasantly surprised at the subtle but good results achieved by careful placement of dermal filler . The company botonics popped up a few times and I decided I had nothing to lose but to contact them to see if I was a candidate for the treatment . I received a response from Bill , the business manager whom encouraged me to send over some pics of my nose from lots of different angles . He came back to me and said exactly what I had wanted to hear , that they certainly could get rid of my bump , wonkyness and give the appearance of a much sleeker nose . I was excited and nervous but booked a date in . I was pleased to note that the payment options were reasonable with no hidden costs and there certainly was no pressure selling which I hate !i did feel worried before heading to London .I was scared that I would be one of the extremely rare cases where filler was rejected by the body , I knew I was being silly but still I was nervous - I needn’t have worried about anything at all . On the day of the appointment I arrived armed with my arnica cream feeling scared of just about everything. Naruschka was so professional , I felt assured and relaxed . She has Worked with dermal fillers for many years and she talked me though where she was going to place it and what corrections this would make . She took some before pictures and I sat on a revolving chair to get some good before and after videos and photos . I’m not going to lie I was very nervous whilst I layed there waiting for my anaesthetic cream to start working however I calmed down once she started injecting and it really wasn’t that bad I could hardly feel most areas . There was a bit of pressing it into place and one particular area was sensitive which I had already been warned about . I was glad when it was over but it was far from the pain that I had worried about . . When I was shown the mirror I was so happy because it now looked straight and sleek and my much hated profile had definitely improved !.
I got the train home from my procedure with little more than a red tip! that first night my nose was tender to touch and for few days after but I was able to go about my day the next day totally normally and didn’t have any bruising at all , the sites that had been injected just felt a little tender . Now I have completely forgotten I have even had the procedure done it’s so natural and subtle ! A few of my friends who knew what I was having done have commented that they would never had noticed as the results only when I show them the before pictures so they agree that this is a big improvement . I wish it didn’t wear off !! I’m
Pretty sure I will be back every year for Naruschka to work her magic on me ! Special thanks to Bill for always getting back to me so quickly and offering me a very personal service and Naruschka you are so clever with what you can do ! See you again soon !! But hopefully not that soon :-) Read more

My therapist Naruschka Henriques made me feel very comfortable and confident in her ability to give me the perfect nose. Five quick injections - of which only one caused slight discomfort- the hook had disappeared.
I’m very happy with the natural appearance of my non-surgical nose job and the speed of recovery - a very little bruise on the tip of my nose - which is important for me as an actress as I’m constantly attending castings at very short notice.
I will certainly return for a top-up when needed. Read more

- friendly and knowledgeable staff
- free review via email after sending photos which were assessed
by the clinician and botonics gave you honest, clear feedback
about what was possible
- free consultation with the actual surgeon or specialist
- no pressure-selling
- a very personal service
- transparent and fully inclusive pricing
After having nose surgery five years ago to resolve functional issues it left my nose looking aesthetically displeasing with scar tissue and asymmetry and am hoping to improve this with non-surgical treatment. I plan to undertake a non-surgical nose job at botonics in the near future, Bill has been coordinating with myself and has been most helpful. Read more

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

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

40 year old now feeling more like a 20 year old!
Monday, July 30, 2018
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.

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

Dr nurein put me at ease straight away and was very informative.I decided to go ahead with my fat transfer and liposuction

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

In comparison to all the other companies the prices were more than competitive and the service 100%

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

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

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

From the moment I stepped in the room I felt at ease, as Naruschka talked me through the process and gave me her honest opinions on how we should proceed.
I'm already booked in to go and see Naruschka again and I would recommend if others are thinking of doing the same then she is definitely the right person to choose. Read more

Love my lips enhanced by Narushka; no one ever said they look fake and I received so many compliments.
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 am so pleased with what my nose looks like now, people haven't even noticed the change but I am so much more confident. My compliments don't do the experience any justice - yes Naruschka is that good!
I have already recommended Botonics to 3 other people and would definitely be returning if I ever need to. Great customer service and great results!
Thank you Bill and Naruschka. 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. I absolutely love the results of my lip enhancement, people often comment and say how good they look. I honestly wouldn't go anywhere else and couldn't recommend her more highly.

I went along to see Naruschka Henriques at her clinic in Clapham Junction.
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.
Thank you to Naruschka Henriques for changing my appearance for the better xx Read more

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 w
