Botulinum toxin (Botox), is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. There have been extensive studies for many decades to prove it's safety and it's certified in the medical and cosmetic field.
What does the treatment involve?
While there is no real downtime associated with this treatment, it is important to note that you may encounter some slight bruising and swelling directly after treatment, due to the needle. This can easily be masked by makeup. There are no long-term side effects of having wrinkle injections, meaning you can resume your usual activities straight away, and can also fly post-treatment. It is best to remain upright for 4 hours post treatment.
Who would benefit from Botox?
Botulinum toxin is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It can also be injected into the area around the side of the eyes to improve the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines. It is also a preventative measure. If you get Botox when you're younger and prevent wrinkle formation, then you won't allow the muscles to form the wrinkles. The treatment is used to soften the lines caused by facial expression and can be adjusted to ensure natural results. The duration of results is variable in between individuals but ranges from 3 to 6 months. Suitable for men and women.

As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens, as cells lose their ability to produce more of their youthful component. The skin becomes dryer, thinner and less able to fix itself. When we are born, we have plentiful amounts of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our body, but as we get older this store of HA diminishes, leaving the skin less well supported, and so lines and wrinkles develop.
By lifting and smoothing targeted folds and wrinkles by adding subtle volume, dermal fillers can make a difference to a person’s appearance, giving them a fresher look. Today’s sophisticated fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (or HA), which is a substance that’s found naturally in the body.
The treatment of wrinkles with dermal filler involves injecting this naturally occurring product (HA) through a tiny needle. The discomfort is minimal as the treatment does not take long to perform. The aesthetic outcomes of treatments with dermal filler are seen immediately after the treatment. Treating wrinkles with dermal filler is fast, leaving no scars. Treatment can range from fine lines on more delicate parts of the face to deep skin depressions.
You can also treat your lips with lip filler to define your lips or add extra volume.
Results typically last for 12 months.
