FACIAL AESTHETICS

“Baby Botox” continues to be our most popular treatment to relax lines and maintain a fresh appearance.

 

Facial rejuvenation can effectively reduce wrinkles and tighten loose skin, giving you a more youthful look. At the practice, we are able to offer Botox® and dermal fillers (Juvederm® and Restylane®) to achieve the result you want. Our Facial Aesthetics practitioner, Tammy Griffiths can offer a full range of services including:


Botox®

Botulinum toxin type A (Botox®) is effective at reducing lines and wrinkles associated with facial expression. Botulinum toxin injections are commonly used to treat lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose, forehead lines and furrows and crow’s feet.

 

The injections temporarily block the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles, which cause wrinkles and lines, allowing these to relax. The treatment can also result in a brow lift if desired.

 

Your facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask-like. The overall result is very natural. Several tiny injections to the required areas cause relaxation of the targeted muscle fibres and a cold compress is all that is required for soothing the skin after the treatment.

 

Generally the initial effect is seen within 5 days and the maximum effect is seen 14 days after treatment. This lasts approximately 3-4 months and regular maintenance treatment every 3-4 months will prevent recurrence. Botox injections can also be used in conjunction with dermal fillers for deep lines.

Dermal Fillers

As we age, the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in the skin decreases. This in turn can make the skin thinner and wrinkled. Restylane® and Juvederm® are gels known as Hyaluronic Acid “Fillers” made from Non-animal sources. As these products are identical to the natural substances in the body it means they are completely natural and safe.

 

Fillers are used to fill out or smooth wrinkles, lines or folds on the face that have been created by the loss of Hyaluraonic Acid (elasticity) in the skin as we age. By restoring the volume to these areas your skin will look smoother and softer, resulting in a fresher and more youthful appearance.

 

Fillers can be used for:

  • Eye lines
  • Mouth lines
  • Smile lines on the cheeks
  • Skin indentations
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows

The gels are used in different thicknessess depending on the result desired.

 

Small injections, including local anaesthetic within the gel, are given to the required areas. An instant result can be seen, with effects lasting 4 to 6 months.

 

A full confidential consultation to determine the optimum effect for each person ensures the result is as natural or full as desired.
