Patient Success Story at S-Thetics Medical Aesthetic Clinic, Beaconsfield

April 28, 2016 11:46 am Published by

Hear from our patient, Grace, 37, who recently had a medical consultation followed by muscle relaxing treatment at S-Thetics Clinic.

“I have 2 children the eldest is 5 so I’ve had 5 years of no sleep basically!

I did a bit of my own research on Sherina and was very impressed.

Sometimes you can really tell when people have had fillers or BOTOX® done and it’s really not noticeable that I’ve had it, I just look a lot more well rested.

I’m really happy, I’ll definitely continue and I would definitely recommend S-Thetics to anybody”

Muscle-relaxing injections are a type of non-permanent cosmetic treatment, which can be used to effectively treat fine-to-medium lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles in the skin.


At S-Thetics we use the market-leading brand of muscle-relaxing injections, BOTOX®. This product has been on the market for over 25 years and was originally approved by the FDA as a medical treatment for a number of muscular conditions.

During this time, it has been extensively studied with more than 65 clinical trials involving 15,000 people, making it one of the most reliable, effective and safe products on the market.

Muscle relaxing injections are commonly used to treat:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet

  • Jawline lift and necklace lines (Nefertiti lift)

  • Excessive teeth grinding and clenching

  • Excessive underarm sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

Why choose S-Thetics for your non-surgical treatment?

What happens?

All patients are offered a topical anaesthetic cream which is applied to the treatment area(s) for 30 minutes. This helps to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.

How long does it take?

Treatment time is usually between 15-30 minutes depending on the area(s) selected.

Is there any downtime?

There is little or no downtime associated with these treatments. There may be mild redness following treatment which will quickly subside.

Your treatment will be discussed with you during your consultation and medical consent.

How frequently do I need them?

Depending on the area treated, results usually last between 3-4 months as the movement in the muscle comes back over time.

We advise all new patients to return for a dose review three weeks after their initial treatment to ensure the best results.
