Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Injections
Our facial expressions change as we contract or relax our muscles. This is caused by the brain sending a signal to our muscles via our nerve endings. Over time, these long-standing contractions cause wrinkles and lines to form in the skin (such as frown lines and crow’s feet) which are usually associated with ageing. Botulinum toxin injections, performed through a fine needle, are a reversible way of inhibiting these muscle contractions and thus slowing the formation of wrinkles and lines in the skin.

Injectable fillers are becoming an increasingly popular non-surgical intervention to correct a variety of cosmetic concerns. The gel base of the filler, when injected with a fine needle under the skin, provides a volume that can act to smooth wrinkles or folds, shape facial contours or enhance the definition of lips, in a natural way.

Although the majority of scars are permanent, there are a series of surgical techniques that can be employed to make them less visible or promote normal bodily function in affected areas. During your consultation, Mr Harris will examine the problematic scar and advise on the best course of treatment.
For some patients with difficult scars, areas of altered skin pigmentation, loss of eyebrow hair or needing nipple reconstruction the use of medical pigmentary tattooing techniques can be a very valuable tool in disguising such problems. Mr Harris works with skilled medical tattooists who can advise patients and treat accordingly.
In line with Government and Public Health England advice on the ‘stay alert’ policy and ‘social distancing’ that continues to be in place, Mr Harris has limited capacity for all out-patient clinics until the end of October. However, we are currently open and have restarted surgery with new precautions in place to ensure patient safety from COVID-19.
