All ‘botox’ wrinkle smoothing treatments are carried out by Dr Clare Quinn, a General Dental Council (GDC)registered aesthetic dentist who has over 12 years’ experience in aesthetic medicine. She now practices on a full-time basis at her welcoming clinic in Dorridge, Solihull.
‘Botox’ is the all-round term commonly used to describe treatment which uses a purified protein produced by Botulinum Toxin Type A. There are several different brands in use. (Azzalure®, Dysport®, BOTOX®, Vistabel® or Bocouture®). The toxin is used widely in medicine, having many different licensed medical uses across the world including treatments of squints, muscle spasms, cerebral palsy, bladder instability and chronic migraine. It has been now been used for over 20 years for its benefits in aesthetic medicine with the proven psychological benefit of mood improvement by reducing frown lines and eye wrinkles, along with the improvement in facial appearance.
How do ‘botox’ wrinkle smoothing treatments work?
As we age the skin is creased in areas of repeated facial expression. The ageing process causes a loss in the skin’s ability to repair itself so that in the areas of over-use the lines become more visible. BOTOX or Azzalure is administered by injection at specific points on the face in extremely small amounts to relax contraction of facial muscles. By temporarily blocking the nerve impulses to the facial muscles it is injected into the movement of the muscle is reduced and the skin stops being creased, allowing it to recover and the lines gradually soften.
‘Botox’ treatments are a medical treatment
Botox treatments are an art as well as a science. The treatment is not something that should be administered by any person who is not medically qualified as it is a prescription only medicine, (POM) that needs to be prescribed for an individual patient following a full medical history consultation to determine if it is a suitable and safe option.

Dear Clare I would like to thank you for the wonderful results I have received from my wrinkle smoothing treatment. I would recommend your services to anyone seeking this procedure as your professionalism, friendly service and staff all made the whole experience a very relaxing one.
After many years of jaw clenching causing my masseter muscles to become enlarged and very painful, I was referred by my orthodontist to Clare at Dentelle. At my consultation, I received Botox jaw reduction injections; the process was quick and painless, whereupon I noticed a visible and less painful difference within a few weeks. I would highly recommend Clare and her team.
What does treatment involve?
Treatment takes around 10-15 minutes and involves several tiny injections with a very fine needle around the areas to be treated. The treatment is not painful, with only minimal and brief discomfort, like a very small sting. Following’ botox’ treatment you should avoid touching the area, strenuous exercise, lying down flat and alcohol for several hours.
An improvement will be noticeable in treated areas within two weeks, with results lasting up to four months. Clare always reviews the treatment after two weeks have passed and offers a free ‘top up’ if required, preferring to adopt a less is more approach to achieve the most natural results and avoiding a ‘frozen’ appearance. Maintenance treatment is likely to be required every 3-4 months for a lasting result during the first two years of treatment with longer time intervals thereafter.
For the very best results
‘Botox’ treatment is most effective treating the lines associated with the forehead, around the eyes and frown lines, and can produce a flattering brow lift when carefully administered. The very best results are achieved when combined with protective skin care. ‘Botox’ treatment will relax a muscle and improve a wrinkle or two but at Dentelle we are very happy to advise you about your long-term skin health so that further wrinkle development and skin ageing is slowed down. We are passionate about skin care and have a collective pool of expertise and treatments at the clinic which many individuals working alone cannot match.
A full skin analysis with our OBSERV SKIN SCANNER will be carried out free of charge and we can advise every client about their most appropriate home skincare and in-clinic treatments to guarantee healthy, plumped and glowing skin that goes far beyond treating a few individual lines.
Clare is amazing! I’ve been going to Dentelle now for a good number of years and would never go anywhere else. Every treatment is explained and you’re treated so lovely by every member of the team. I have recommended Clare to my friends and one even comes from Edinburgh for her treatments! Professional and caring.
