Botulinum Toxin Treatment

Excessive activity of your facial muscles can result in the development of deep frown lines between the eyebrows, pronounced forehead lines, ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes, neck lines and so on. Botulinum toxin temporarily weakens the underlying muscles responsible for the wrinkling and folding.

What are the benefits?

Any wrinkles become smoother or disappear altogether and this helps to reduce the signs of ageing. Your skin will appear smoother, more natural and youthful. People will notice you look ‘well’ and ‘healthy’ or ‘glowing’ but by no means false or mask-like. You will still be able to make facial expressions after treatment!

The ‘Brow lift’ techniques will subtly raise the eyebrows giving a fresher more youthful look and help to reverse the effects of sagging or drooping tissues around your eyes and forehead.

Botulinum toxin can also be very effective in the treatment of excessive sweating from the armpits.

How does it work?

Botulinum toxin administration is a safe and tested method that has been used for over 30 years with no known long term problems. Tiny amounts of Botulinum toxin are injected into the skin. This is extremely quick and causes minimal discomfort. You will appear more youthful within 1-2 weeks and the results typically last for around 3-4 months in the first year of use, with longer-lasting effects with regular use thereafter. 

 

Dermal Filler Treatment

Dermal fillers contain a substance called hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance found in all human soft tissues. Dermal fillers are hydrating, lubricating and replace lost volume. They can be used as a highly effective method of addressing the signs of ageing.

What are the benefits?

Dermal fillers are biocompatible non-animal products. They can be used to non-surgically treat people suffering with problems such as wrinkles, deep folds and depressions of the face. Examples include but are not limited to nose-to-mouth lines, sunken cheeks and lips that have lost volume. They can also be used very effectively in other areas, such as on the back of the hands.

Dermal fillers can be used alone or alongside other treatments such as Botulinum toxin to replace lost volume, reduce or eliminate wrinkles and folds, and help reverse the effects of ageing. Filler are an excellent non-surgical method of helping you to look more youthful, smoother and radiant.

How does it work?

Treatment is very straightforward and quick. A treatment session is typically less than 30 minutes. Local anaesthetic can be used to prevent discomfort, making for a painless, non-surgical treatment without delays or discomfort. Dermal fillers are injected into the area being treated and you will see results immediately, usually improving further over the next one or two weeks as the filler hydrates the area and improves the volume further. Results will usually last from 6-12 months depending on the area treated and the individual response.
