A small step towards a more confident and beautiful you.
Dr Linea Strachan knows what a difference little things can make. Through her years of facial aesthetics expertise, she has perfected her practice so it is deftly tailored to all her different clients’ needs.
Long gone are the days of immovable features, now replaced with a look as relaxed and natural as you feel. Today, Botox® treatments can work wonders without anyone even knowing you’ve had it done.
Leave those lines behind
The leading light in wrinkle relaxing procedures is the drug Botulinum Toxin - more commonly known by the brand name Botox®. The Botox® procedure involves making tiny local injections, which relax facial expression muscles and smooth down lines on the face and neck area. It can be used to treat forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet and saggy jowls or wherever you feel your face might need a pick me up.
Botox® has been safely used for over 60 years in non-surgical cosmetic treatment and rigorously tested worldwide. Although Botox® is an established technique, Dr Linea keeps up with any new industry developments and only uses UK registered and approved muscle relaxant brand Azzalure®. Therefore, you can be completely assured that you will be getting the very best level of professional medical care throughout your treatment.
An individual approach
Our Botox® treatment plan is uniquely created for each client. Initially, Dr Linea will discuss the best course of Botox® treatment according to your personal medical needs and desired over all look. She will clearly explain how the procedure works and any possible side effects. So, if you are looking for a more natural look with subtle movement of the face or a smooth lifted brow Dr Linea can tailor it to you.
After the short and relatively painless treatment, Botox® effects take between 48 hours to 10 days to become visible and last up to 3 to 4 months. More permanent effects can be achieved through more closely time appointments as per your treatment plan. Dr Linea offers a free review and top-up session to discuss your progress and make sure that you are completely happy with your new look.
Dr Linea knows how much her work means to her clients, as she explains: “Our Botox® treatment doesn’t have to be unnatural looking – it can be fresh faced with no tell-tale signs that you’ve had it. Clients keep coming back with smile on their face and their confidence boosted. It’s wonderful to know they trust me. They look natural and younger but no one knows their secret!”
Wrinkle relaxing injections with Botulinum toxin is one of the most common and popular anti-ageing treatments available today. Botox® has been used medically for over 60 years and is one of the most researched drugs worldwide. Using effective and safe techniques it can reduce the effects of lines and wrinkles in the face and neck, smooth the skin and give it a youthful and natural look.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is the brand name of a drug made from Botulinum Toxin. There are several versions of this drug made by different companies. Dr Linea only uses UK registered and approved brand muscle relaxant Azzalure®.
Botox® is a safe, effective and non-surgical treatment for smoothing down the lines created by facial expression muscles (frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, dimpled chins, downward smiles etc.)
Purified botulinum Toxin A injections block the impulses sent from the nerves to facial muscles which stops them contracting and the lines appearing in the skin.
What does the treatment with Botox® involve?
Botox® is administered through tiny local injections, relaxing the facial expression muscles, dramatically reducing the lines and improving the appearance of your skin. Repeated injections several months apart can prevent the lines from returning.
How long does it take to do the treatment and how long does it last?
The procedure is very quick and relatively pain free. Dr linea will discuss which treatments are best for you and what could be expected.
Improved, more youthful yet natural appearance can be visible within 48 hours to 10 days. Dr Linea will see you for a free revue and top up procedure if needed to guarantee full satisfaction. The results would typically last for 3 to 4 months to start with, and for longer periods thereafter if you keep it up.
Where can Botulinum Toxin be used?
Common areas include:
- Lines in the corner of your eyes, known as ‘crow’s feet’
- Vertical frown lines between your eyebrows (frown lines)
- Horizontal lines on your forehead
It can also be used for:
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Gummy smiles
- Bruxism (teeth grinding)-also slims down the face by reducing the sizes of overdeveloped jaw muscles (masseters)
- Dimpled chin
- Smoker’s lines
- Bunny lines (lines on the bridge of the nose which appear when smiling)
- Marionette lines (downward smile)
- Tightening saggy neck and jowls (Nefertiti lift)
What are the adverse effects?
Botulinum Toxin has been used for wrinkle reduction for many years with an excellent safety record and is safe in the hands of a capable and experienced clinician.
Dr Linea Strachan always uses conservative doses and anatomically safe and proven techniques.
Any possible side effects will be discussed and fully explained during your consultation.
Will it make me look ‘frozen’ and expressionless?
Only very small doses of Botox® will be used on targeted facial muscles which create the lines. Your facial expressions and smile will not be effected.
Many clients swear by it without the knowledge of friends and family because when done properly it looks very natural.
Just had my first trip to the dentist in years without having a panic attack..the girls spent time with me explaining and reassuring me before my treatment started. I will return every 6 months now.
Wonderful team and so friendly, made me feel at ease right from the start. I have recommended many of my friends who all say the same. I only wish I had a dentist like Dr Lina years ago.
A different breed of dentist, if you’re dental phobic go to these guys.
I have been attending A & L Clinics for the last 3 years for both dentistry and facial rejuvenation, I would never consider going elsewhere. Dr Andrew made my new crowns, I no longer put my hand over my mouth when I’m talking to people and I’m always right in the front of photographs now (to the annoyance of my family !). Dr Lina and the girls make my visits so much fun and relaxing whilst making me look 10 years younger (facial aesthetics) and Dr Andrew is a pure genius as my new crowns are absolutely perfect and so natural.
I came to this dental practise beginning of this year to have invisible braces, think they are the only ones in Ipswich who do this. The practise is really lovely and the staff are extremely friendly. It was affordable and I now have perfect straight teeth.
I would just like to say a massive thank you for the recent dental treatments I have received over the past 2 weeks. I personally am terrified of dental treatments (I’m sure I’m not alone) due to a poor experience at a young age and as a result I practically break into a cold sweat at the thought of a dental appointment! I’m sure Andrius & Chloe could tell from the way I was gripping onto the chair for dear life! However I have totally had my faith restored by the experience I have had with yourselves over my last two visits.
From the moment I walked in you have taken the time to understand and reassure me every step of the way and tailor a treatment plan to my needs. You are all warm, friendly, professionals and a credit to your field. A massive thank you to Jane for keeping me informed and reassuring me about my treatment, to Chloe for keeping me calm and ensuring I didn’t faint in the chair! And to Andrius for the carrying out the truly first class dental repairs in such a calm and friendly manner! I will not hesitate to recommend you all.
When I went to A&L to get my front tooth redone it was very easy, all the staff were very helpful, kind and always asked if I was okay, also the price is very reasonable for what had to be done. I would highly recommend A&L Clinic.
I was mortified when I was told I needed a filling (I’m 36 and had no dental treatment ever), after being assured A and L only place white fillings Dr Lina got to work and WOW you wouldn’t even know I had a filling, it looks just like the rest of my teeth. I am so impressed. It was pain free as well, bonus
Great, friendly service. Everything was explained fully to me, fab staff.
Great service . Wonderful results . Can’t stop smiling !
Just a quick email to express my thanks for the excellent work you did on my face and lips. I’m so pleased with the results; my lips now look much fuller and shapely. It’s always a pleasure to visit your clinic as I find you and your staff friendly, knowledgable and most importantly professional. !
I have just had the thread lift which is incredible and worth every penny. The practice manager Jane explained the procedure that I was going to have and immediately put me at ease, she answered all my questions and was fantastic reassuring me throughout my thread lift. Lena was amazing and I would never go to anyone else for my cosmetic procedures as there was very little pain, she is very quick and good at making you relaxed. Thank you everyone at A and L.
I had many treatments (treatment for wrinkles, cheek filler, under eye filler, lip filler and threads) with DR. Strachan and I wouldn’t dream of trusting anyone else! She is highly professional and also very artistic. Great and patient with her clients. The treatments were painless and the results are very natural. Highly recommended!
The clinic is in a great Central London location, nice and clean and welcoming!
I have had all the work that she provides, and I can safely say none of her procedures hurt – and the outcome is fantastic. She is professional but approachable, and explains any worries or concerns you may have. Even after all these years she is still patient with me and reassures me.
Well done Linea for all the awards you have won and I have to thank you for making me look 10 years (and more) younger.
I am delighted with the results of my treatment with Dr Lina. She fully explained the treatment before starting and made me feel at ease. She clearly has the expertise and experience to do a fantastic job and I am thoroughly impressed with my treatment results. I wouldn’t hesitate to return for further treatments and will be recommending her to friends and family.
I have been seeing Dr Linea Strachan for around 18 months now and would never go to anyone else for facial aesthetics. I had very deep frown lines which she corrected with treatment for wrinkles, the results were truly amazing and lasted so well. I have also had lip fillers which I couldn’t be happier with. I work in the beauty industry and recommend Dr Strachan to all my clients and several of them have been to see her and are thrilled with their results.
Dr Strachan is warm and friendly and made me feel very relaxed and confident in her knowledge and skills.
Today I had my second lot of lip fillers by the lovely Dr Lina , so delighted with my results as always, was very reassured as I dislike needles. Totally pain free and professional, would highly recommend to anybody ,excited to be seeing Dr Lina again for my future procedures.
So, it was a no-brainer really. I saw Dr Strachan in her Harley St location and following an extensive consultation I had what remains as the most pain free aesthetic procedure to date. She used the Teosyal Pen to correct my tear troughs and the result was not only pain free, but an instant result. I looked awake and refreshed straight after. There was no bruising and no down time. Her technique in using the Teosylal Pen was absolutely amazing. I could not recommend her enough!
Dr Strachan is the ultimate professional. As I live in London she was able to see me in her Harley St location. The experience was a 10 out of 10.
Fantastic every time for my lip fillers! I have been going to Dr Linea for years. I recommend all my family and friends to come here. All the staff are so friendly!! Once you come here you will never want to go anywhere else!
Absolutely thrilled with my new cheeks, this is the first ever facial treatment I have had and WOW. I wish I had found Dr Linea years ago…. this treatment seems to have taken years off me, I will be back without a doubt as she made me feel so at ease.
From the moment I walked in I was made to feel at ease, I was taken through the treatment step by step and was given all the time needed…I didn’t feel rushed at all. Please be assured if you go to Dr Linea you will never look back

I had wrinkle treatment and dermal fillers with Dr. Linea Strachan. I must admit I feel very happy with the results! Thanks to Dr. Strachan flawless treatment, my face looks younger, fresher, yet still very natural. What is more important, that during the treatment I was relaxed and felt no pain.
I would highly recommend Dr. Linea Strachan to anyone, who seeks professional and painless facial treatment.
With Dr Linea you will not experience that! She puts you tatally at ease, Explains all the procedures, advices what’s best for you or what’s not necessary to have done yet. Personally, I had few treatments done including treatment for wrinkles or lip fillers. Both gave amazing results. Natural looking face, refreshed, radiating younger looking skin. I also went through non surgical face lift. Dr Linea used special threads that really worked wonders. Before I could see lines on my cheeks , due to massive weigh loss. That’s all history now thanks to dr Strachan. I’m in my early forties now but apparently looking around ten years younger. Sometimes they still ask me for ID is shops;) Thank you so much. If you still hesitate, do not think twice nor take my words for granted, go for consultation and see with your own eyes. Good luck. Excellent
