A simple treatment to dramatically soften facial expression lines and leave you looking younger and more refreshed. Excellent for frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crows feet around the eyes. Botox is injected (no more than a 'prick') into the muscles controlling brow furrows. Over the course of several days it temporarily paralyses them into relaxation, smoothing out the skin above. Treatment time takes around 15minutes to half an hour depending on the number of areas you wish to treat. Botox is temporary and last 3-5 months or longer, depending on the individual.
FILLERSRestylane / Perlane
Restylane is a clear gel containing Hyaluronic Acid ( a naturally occurring substance that is a component of connective tissue), which binds water into the skin. It provides lift, new firmness and adds to the body's own supply of this acid. It is a soft tissue filler, which adds volume, thus minimising wrinkles. It is used for lip enhancement, or for correcting thin, superficial lines particularly around the mouth, forehead and smile lines. The procedure generally takes less than half and hour and no pre-testing is necessary. Pain relief is generally unnecessary unless you are having lip enhancement, where an anaesthetic injection may be used to remove any tenderness in the procedure. Treatments are repeated on a six-month to yearly basis.
