Why do we have wrinkles? 

We get wrinkles from repetitive use of our facial muscles. This can be made worse by other factors in our busy lives such as smoking, alcohol, dehydration, fatigue, emotional and hormonal changes, including stress; which make the skin deteriorate.


BOTULINUM : What can be treated?

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown line
  • Some tension headaches
  • Crows feet
  • Chin dimples
  • Down-turned mouth
  • Bunny lines on the nose
  • Excessive underarm perspiration


What is Botulinum? 

Botulinum A is a toxin used in very small amounts to stop the nerve communicating with the muscle. It has been researched and used for more than 20 years and has proven to be safe and effective.


How long does the treatment take and how long will it take to work? 

The treatment takes 15-30 minutes and you will start to see the effects within 48-72 hours, with maximum effect taking 7-10 days. The treatment will be reviewed after approximately 21 days.


How long does it last for?

The effects will last for about 3 months, but with repetitive use it will take less of the product to achieve a longer lasting effect.

Will I look expressionless?

No. We use so many muscles to give us an expression- so during the treatment we can selectively de-activate the muscles that cause the ageing lines that you are worried about. We can tailor treatments to our requirements. 

Is it uncomfortable?

Most people find the treatment totally pain free, some find it mildly uncomfortable during the treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Rarely, there may be some redness immediately afterwards, which goes very rapidly. Bruising can happen at the injection site which can be minimized with a cool pack following treatment. Headaches can occasionally be experienced. 

When deactivating some areas a temporary drooping eyelid may be experienced, which will disappear within a week. There is a small risk of scaring at the injection site. We minimize side effects with the techniques we use.


HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS What can be treated?

  • Stubborn wrinkles
  • Laughter lines
  • Lip enhancement
  • Smokers lines
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Some scars
  • A certain degree of facial contouring

What is Hyaluronic acid filler?

Hyaluronic acid filler is a biodegradable non-animal Hyaluronic acid based implant. It is a transparent viscoelastic gel. It is injected directly into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the skin and so integrates into the skin as if one of its own constituents. 

It therefore replenishes the Hyaluronic acid and follows the skins natural cycle of degradation and regeneration. It hydrates the dermis by imprisoning the water molecules and giving back the skin its volume and initial, natural form.


How long does it last for? 

The effects of the treatment will last for approximately 6 to 12 months.


Will I look unnatural in these areas? 

No. We will tailor the treatment to your requirements.


Is it uncomfortable? 

No. We will numb the area with local anaesthetic first. Usually none or only a very little discomfort is felt once the anaesthetic has worn off. A cold pack used after the treatment will reduce any swelling.


Are there any side effects? 

This treatment is so safe that a spot test is not even necessary. Immediate side effects include bruising and slight swelling. There have been very rare cases of necroses, abscess and granuloma.
