We use dermal fillers to plump and enhance areas that require volume and hydration. All our fillers are based on hyaluronic acid (HA), which is the body’s own natural skin plumper and so has almost no risk of an allergic reaction.
Depending on the area that the filler needs to be placed, there are different consistencies of the gel. Some more fluid than others. Thinner or less dense fillers are used for surface areas like lips and crow’s feet, and thicker ones are injected deeper into the cheeks. All the lip fillers we use are fully reversible from the time they are administered, until the time they are re-absorbed.
The body re-absorbs HA fillers within around 6-12 months but this can vary depending on many factors such as age, metabolism, the normal blood flow to the face.
Dermal fillers can be used to enhance and give volume in these areas
- Naso-labial folds
- Tear troughs
- Marionette lines
The fillers also have an element of local anaesthetic within them, this means that your filler injection is pain free and very comfortable.
BOTOX muscle relaxing treatment
Over the years lines and creases can appear on our face due to the muscular activity underneath the skin. These lines can be softened by reducing the muscular activity. Botulinum Toxin is used to create a fresher and more youthful appearance by causing a temporary freezing of the treated facial muscles
- on the forehead (frown lines)
- vertically or horizontally in between the eyes (brow furrows or glabellar) and/or
- laughter lines around the eyes or the crow’s feet
- to correct a “gummy” looking smile.
- in the chin to correct bumpy chin
- in the masseter muscles, to help with teeth grinding and slim the face
- in the platysmal bands to reduce the wrinkles on the neck
The procedure is safe, not painful and is quick to perform. It usually takes up to two weeks for the treatment to take effect.
