An increasing number of people are looking for effective ways to preserve their appearances and enhance their natural beauty. While the fountain of youth may still remain elusive, the strides in top of the range cosmetic surgeries and treatments now are allowing you to look your best for years to come.
As you get older, lines and wrinkles will appear on your face, which are dead giveaways of your age due to a loss of elasticity, collagen, and tightness. Luckily for you, there are two fantastic cosmetic procedures to have you looking youthful once again – Botox and fillers.
To help you to make the right decision for your personal needs, this guide is going to walk you through the plus points of each treatment so that you are informed and ready to make a commitment to looking amazing.
Botox refers to the use of Botulinum Toxin to soften the lines caused by a muscular contraction in the face by relaxing the muscles, which also allows for creases in the skin. These creases are caused by repetitive actions (such as smoking and lines around the lips) which begin to fade as the Botox prevents them from being reinforced.
The main areas that Botox helps with are:
Botox is a fast and effective treatment for the above ailments that has a temporary effect. This means that you do have to have the procedure done again, but it also means that the side effects of Botox are temporary as well.
The main side effect is that the Botulinum Toxin can trickle into other muscles of the face causing some drooping, but this is not evident after a maximum of four weeks and is often minimal.
Botox is priced according to how many areas of the face you have done. At Luxe Skin, 1 area costs £175, 2 areas are £250, and 3 areas are £325.
Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance that contains hyaluronic acid, which is already present in
to retain moisture and plumpness. The filler will add volume to the skin by helping it maintain more moisture and even helping in the production of collagen, which will give your skin a youthful lift. The main uses of fillers are:
The minor side effects include some bruising, redness, and swelling which resolves itself in around two weeks. As with Botox, sometimes the filler can filter into unwanted places and the remedy to this is to have the filler dissolved and the procedure done once again.
Thus, the main difference between Botox and fillers are that Botox helps to reduce lines whereas fillers can actually be used to sculpt the face and the fillers before and after show an evident positive change to those who decide to get them.
For fillers, the cost is determined by per 1ml syringe, which each cost £375 as Luxe only use premium fillers.
Now that you have some more information on the strengths of both Botox and fillers, you will have a better idea of what you want for your next treatment. The next step you need to take is to book a consultation with a professional in Glasgow and get even more information by visiting the website.

I got fillers done on my nose to mouth lines and mouth to chin lines, I don’t really like needles but was pleasantly surprised as it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, there was a little nip and the procedure was over and done with, in no time at all. Dr Qureshi was very professional, he talked me through the procedure as he was doing it, putting me at ease. I saw a slight difference straight away but as the day went on it got better. I am amazed at the results, I will definitely be going back for more and I will be recommending Dr Qureshi to all my friends.
My friend Clare recommended Doctor Q to me. I had been going to a different clinic and had some problems after lip fillers but that practitioner would not return my calls and would not help me. Doctor Q was able to fix my lips and I just love them. Thanks so much Doctor Q.
Dr Q is very experienced and professional! He makes you feel totally at ease and he “really” listens to you & tailors his treatment to suit you personally. I have been to a couple of different places for my Botox but Dr Q is by far the best. If you want quality care, treatments and results then you should definitely go to Luxe Skin. Thanks again Doctor Q – see you soon 🙂
My sister and myself went to Dr Qureshi’s clinic in Glasgow, he was very professional and talked us through the process of Botox injections, as it was our first time. We were very anxious but Dr Qureshi answered all our queries and explained everything very professionally and put us at ease. I would highly recommend Dr Qureshi and will return as we were both delighted & very happy with our before & after care and much softer younger looking eyes/frown lines. I also contacted Dr Qureshi by text message and he always replied very quickly & professionally. He also does discounts on 1 or more areas. Highly recommended and very professional clinic with affordable prices.
I went to a national chain clinic before and did not realise that the treatment was not done by a doctor. They actually wanted much more money when I said I wanted a doctor to carry out my treatment. At Luxe Skin, I am always seen by Doctor Q. He is so easy to contact at any time. No receptionists or secretaries, you speak to him directly. I had Botox and fillers and I love the results. My forehead is so smooth and the deep lines around my nose have faded away.
I’ve been getting botox for over two years now in South Africa. After moving to the UK I had it done with one other provider. It was the worst experience, painful, ineffective and I had a black eye for two weeks. I came to see Dr Qureshi feeling a little anxious. He instantly put me at ease and it was the best results I’ve ever had, completely painless and he got it right on the 1st go. Thrilled with the results and I will become a regular of his now.
I came to Dr Qureshi as i felt i had developed smokers’ lines around my mouth which had been bothering me for many years. He recommended Fillers and Botox on my upper lip and I am delighted with the results. The lines have completely gone and i really feel like a new woman. Major confidence boost and I will be most certainly a regular client as I was very well looked after also. Thank you.
Thank you Dr Q for amazing results! I’ll recommend you to my friends. I’ll be booking my face plan this week thanks again! My friend will be booking with you this week too.
A few months ago I went to Dr Usman Qureshi for a wrinkle reduction treatment, I was so delighted with my treatment, I even took my mum and sister along with me this time so we could all have the treatments together. My mum had never had the treatment before and so was a little nervous, Dr Q put her at ease right away and carried out the procedure quickly and professionally. We are all delighted with the results and looking and feeling fabulous! Thanks Dr Q, see you soon.
The hollows under my eyes used to get me down but I was scared to get anything done. Doctor Q explained the procedure to me. He showed me before and after pictures of what it would look like. And I love the result. I wish I would have got this done much sooner.
This was my first time having Botox. I wanted to get rid of my frown lines and lift my eyebrows. Dr Qureshi explained everything to me clearly and answered all my questions (and I had a lot). He has very light hands, I hardly felt a thing. I will definitely be back with my friends.
Thanks Doctor Q, I love my lips. Thanks for using the anaesthetic, it made a huge difference. I was really nervous but you made me feel at ease. See you in a few months.
I went to Dr Qureshi for my first ever Botox treatment, he was extremely professional and listened to what I wanted and what my expectations were. Treatment was quick and painless and I was made to feel at ease. After a few days, I could see visible effects and it is everything I expected. I will now return for subsequent treatments and am very happy with the service he provides.
Whenever I have had Botox in the past, I had these annoying lines above my eyebrows which would never go away. I went to Dr Q and he got rid of them without any problem! I am thrilled.
Whenever I had Botox in the past, my eyebrows dropped. I kept telling my previous practitioner but they said that’s the way it will be for me. I was amazed at the results at Luxe Skin. My frown has gone and eyebrows have lifted. I feel so much fresher. I have even signed up to Face Plan at Luxe Skin.
I wanted fillers under my eyes to fill the hollows. I was scared as this as it is such a sensitive area. Doctor Q used a cannula and was very gentle. Amazing result. Thank you so much Dr Q.
I used to go to this other place to get Botox done because it was cheap. But the last time my eyelid drooped. I called the practitioner but she kept ignoring me and was very rude. I went to Doctor Q. He explained that side effects can happen but there are ways to reduce the risk. He gave me some eye drops which helped by eyelid droop and after a month it resolved completely. I now get Botox at Luxe Skin. I would highly recommend Doctor Q.
I used to go to a different clinic which was much cheaper but I was never satisfied with the results. I always felt that the treatment was rushed. I wanted to try someone else and went to Doctor Q. He really listened to me and advised me on treatments that met my needs. I had Botox to 3 areas and filler around the mouth and nose. He is always available by phone or email for advice. I am really happy with the results.
I had my first ever Botox in 2 areas and after just 5 days can see a very positive difference. Dr Q is very professional and his clinic reflects this too. It was carried out after a consultation and did not take long. Luxe also offer payment plans which is also a big plus.I will definitely be a returning customer as I have every confidence in Dr Q. and love the result on my 54 year old face!Many thanks.
Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
At Luxe Skin, we use the finest Juvederm Vycross dermal fillers which last up to 24 months. All of Dr Q’s treatments aim to enhance your appearance without giving you that ‘over filled’ look. His experience ensures that treatments are carried out safely.
