Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum Toxin is a naturally occurring purified protein with a wide array of uses. Most people are aware of the use in anti-wrinkle treatments however Botulinum Toxin is also well known to provide successful treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating – for example on the face, hands, feet, or underarms), relief from migraines, treatment for teeth clenching/grinding, jaw pain, and resolution of high smiles aka gummy smiles. Anti-wrinkle treatments act to smooth lines and wrinkles of the face creating a fresher, younger appearance. Botulinum Toxin works by blocking the receptors responsible for muscle contraction, which causes muscle relaxation, therefore leaving the skin looking smoother and less predisposed to deep wrinkles, and future line formation. Anti-wrinkle treatment with Botulinum Toxin can help prevent deep lines and wrinkles from occurring with age. Common areas for wrinkles to appear are between the eyes (known as ‘‘frown lines”), the forehead, and at the sides of the eyes sometimes known as “crows feet” or “smile lines”. In addition, wrinkles are commonly found around the mouth and these lines, called ‘‘smokers lines’‘ can also respond well to treatment. When wrinkle lines have become established they are more resistant to anti-wrinkle treatment alone with the use of Botulinum Toxin and may therefore require additional treatment with filler product that can act dually to plump the skin as well as soften the lines. All treatment is specific to each individual therefore a thorough consultation is offered and allows us to fully explore your bespoke treatment options.

Effects seen: 2-14 days after treatment

Expected duration of results: 3-6 months (treatment for hyperhydrosis lasts between 12-18 months)

Dermal Fillers

Treatment with dermal filler is aimed at softening and smoothing lines, wrinkles and folds that have developed within the skin. The facial fillers we use contain hyalauronic acid, a naturally occurring polysaccharide, that is normally found within our body tissues. When injected, hyalauronic acid attracts water which creates a fuller, hydrated appearance under the skin, resulting in the softened appearance of facial lines. Unlike the silicone fillers that were previously used, hyalauronic acid is fully biodegradable and so is broken down by our bodies over time, allowing treatments to last between 3-12 months depending on the specific type of product used and the location of product injection. There are numerous facial areas that are commonly treated using hyalauronic acid. These include nose-to-mouth lines (called nasio-labial folds), frown and forehead lines, lower face lines (called marionette lines), areas of facial sagging (jowels), upper lip lines (smokers lines) and the tear trough region under the eyes. Often, clients think they may require Botulinum toxin when in actual fact, facial fillers will provide the desired outcome. The specific treatment you require will be explained to you at the time of your free consultation. The procedure itself involves injecting small volumes of gel filler into the required treatment areas to help restore the loss of tissue volume that has resulted in the development of the lines, wrinkles and folds. Treatments are usually completed within 20-30 minutes. Some treatments can be performed with the use of topical or local anaesthetic to ensure optimal comfort for our clients.

Effects seen: immediately

Expected duration of results: 3-12 months

Lip Enhancement

The use of filler product within the lip can volumise the lips to create a youthful, plump appearance or can be used to subtly restore the volume that has been lost over time. The lip fillers we use contain hyalauronic acid, a naturally occurring polysaccharide, that is normally found within our body tissues. When injected, hyalauronic acid attracts water which creates a fuller, hydrated appearance under the skin, resulting in the enhanced appearance of lips. Unlike the silicone fillers that were previously used, hyalauronic acid is fully biodegradable and so is broken down by our bodies over time, allowing treatments to last between 3-12 months depending on the specific type of product used and the location of product injection.

Lip fillers usually require the use of topical local anaesthetic or injectable local anaesthetic to the area prior to injection of the lip fillers.

Treatment time: 60 minutes

Effects seen: immediately

Expected duration of results: 3-12 months

Side Effects: tenderness, bruising, swelling, infection, allergic reaction, asymmetry
