great service and results
I have for some time been bothered by bruxism, which had caused my cheeks to grow unnaturally big and my face disproportionate. Searching the web for treatment I came about Botonics who offered a botox treatment for a fair price. I live in Norway, but it still seemed much cheaper to take a plane to London than to do it back home. Corresponding with Bill from Botonics was personal and responsive. I was told the first treatment is split in two sessions three months apart, and six-month-intervals from then on until the habit of bruxism eventually is beaten.
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.
