Painless, Non-Surgical Facial Treatments
They say you’re as young as you feel, but wouldn’t it be nice to look in the mirror and see a face that reflects this, even if you’ve had a late night the night before!
As we get older nature can sometimes need a helping hand and that’s where non-surgical facial treatments can work wonders. You deserve to look and feel at your very best and we’re here to help you achieve that in a virtually pain-free manner.
One of the most effective ways to improve your appearance and look younger is to smooth out those tell-tale lines and wrinkles. We can help you achieve the results you want, using the very latest products and techniques.
To smooth forehead wrinkles or ‘frown lines’ we use a substance called Botulinum Toxin, e.g Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Azzalure. This has been used safely and effectively for over 25 years. For further information please see the Frequently Asked Questions section.
Wrinkle softening is a straightforward procedure so you can even visit us during your lunch hour! We simply use a very fine needle to gently and painlessly inject Botulinum Toxin into the areas where It’s needed, so it can get to work smoothing out those lines and wrinkles. It usually takes around 7-14 days to see the full effects of each treatment, with results lasting up to 4 months.
Eyes (Crows Feet)
To smooth wrinkles around the eyes, such as ‘crow’s feet’ or laughter lines, we also use Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Azzalure). Despite this being a sensitive area we can treat this region painlessly using advanced techniques.
Lips and Mouth Creases
One of the most effective ways to feel more confident about your appearance is to enhance the shape and possibly the fullness of your lips. Also, by softening the creases around your mouth corners you can look instantly rejuvenated.
Following application of local anaesthetic in the region, we can safely and painlessly artistically inject a special “gel like” produce into the lip borders, lip body and the mouth creases as appropriate. You will be instantly rejuvenated and the effects can last between 6-12 months depending on the product used.
Nose to Mouth Lines
This area is particularly prone to creasing as we get older. Following application of local anaesthetic in this region, we can safely and painlessly inject a special “gel-like” product in the skin to help soften the creasing and instantly rejuvenate you. The effects can last from 6-12 months depending on the product being injected.
Your Questions Answered
Q. What is Botulinum Toxin or BotoxA. Botulinum Toxin (BTX) has been used for over 25 years and is a type of purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is very safe and is injected directly into facial muscles in very tiny amounts during treatment.
Q. How does it work?A. Botulinum Toxin (BTX) works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the facial muscles that have been injected. This makes the muscles less active and therefore softens and smoothes the appearance of persistent lines and wrinkles.
Q. How many treatments will I need?A. In most cases patients can see a real difference after one treatment. This is because Botulinum Toxin (BTX) works gradually, smoothing and softening lines and wrinkles for up to 4 months. Every face is unique of course and we’ll advise you on how many treatments you’re likely to need and how often, depending on the results you‘d like to achieve.
Q. How long does Botulinum Toxin (BTX) work for?A. The effect of Botulinum Toxin (BTX) often last up to 4 months depending on the patient. If you decide to stop treatment, any permanent lines and wrinkles will gradually return.
Q. Is the treatment painful?A. It’s very rare for treatment with Botulinum Toxin (BTX) to be painful. Most patients experience a feeling of slight discomfort if at all during the treatment itself but that’s all. Rest assured we will talk you through what to expect before your first injection, so you’ll be fully prepared prior to treatment.
Q. I’m worried that I’ll end up with “trout pout”?A. Rest assured following an extensive assessment we will aim to meet your expectations being mindful not to over-contour the lips. In this way, we avoid over bulking out of this sensitive area.
Q. Can I go back to work after the procedure?A. With BTX injections at worst you will have a little redness which will subside after a few hours. Following Dermal Filler injections of the mouth area or nose to mouth area you may experience temporary mild bruising and swelling so, in fact, you may decide not to return to work that day.
