Facial Aesthetic treatments are designed to soften expression lines and define facial contours to help delay the aging process. Wrinkles are a part of ageing and can be heightened by exposure to the sun, excessive stress, diet, and weight loss. Non-surgical facial treatments can help remove these lines and give you a more youthful and radiant look.
Botox® works on dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement by temporarily paralyzing freezing muscles and slowing down the progression of wrinkles. A purified protein is inserted to prevent various facial muscles from contracting and stops the skin from creasing. The commonly treated areas are the upper part of the face such as crow’s feet, lines between your eyebrows and forehead lines.
Treatment takes around 10-15 minutes and effects will show after 1-2 weeks.
Studies show that keeping wrinkles away is possible and in some cases they can be completely eliminated but must be recognised at the earliest sign of them appearing. It is important to be proactive when looking after your skin, as it can help it to look and feel healthier as you go through the later years of your life.
Juvéderm® ULTRA Dermal Fillers
Dermal Fillers are injections which add volume to lines and wrinkles, sunken cheeks and weak chins; also used to reshape noses or lips. Fillers plump up the skin, smoothing out any lines and wrinkles.
In our practice we use Juvéderm® ULTRA Dermal Fillers which can be used to contour the cheeks and chin, correct acne or chicken pox scars, and fill deep lines. They can also restore a more youthful look to lips that have become thinner and lost definition.
A numbing cream is applied and tiny amounts of a bio-degradable gel filler are injected with a very fine needle into the areas requiring treatment.
You may wish to revisit the practice to get top-ups to maintain your desired look after 6-12 months.
