We offer facial rejuvenation treatments to help you look as young as you still feel, including Botox® anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Both of these skin treatments are provided by our Consultant Specialist Dr Walji.
Now renowned throughout the UK for its instant wrinkle removing effects, this method is best for treating facial lines that have been caused by muscle movement. Prime examples of these include frown lines between the eyebrows and crows' feet around the eyes.
Botox is injected into the area to be treated, freezing the muscles so that the area relaxes, softening lines and preventing further wrinkles from occurring.
Wrinkles are caused by everyday factors like sun damage, smoking and facial expressions including laughing or frowning. As you get older the elasticity of your skin reduces too, and wrinkles naturally form - injectable procedures can help to reduce wrinkles for younger looking skin. These injectable procedures help to smooth out facial wrinkles especially frown lines on the forehead, wrinkles around the eyes and laughter lines, without the need for surgery. Injectable treatments are often used to slow down the effects of ageing and as a non-surgical alternative to facelifts or brow lifts.
Botox type injections
There are a number of botox type products on the market, including Dysport, Azzalure, Xeomin, Vistabel, as well as the original Botox. But all are commonly referred to as 'botox' because they all contain the same toxin A that stops muscles from moving and smoothes wrinkles on the face.
Botox is particularly good for the upper face, eg frown lines, crows feet, smile lines and brow furrows. Botox smoothes, lifts and can even be used to correct asymmetry and shape the eyebrows into a nice arch. It can also be used to treat lip lines and neck wrinkles, when administered by an experienced practitioner. It can also prevent new lines forming.
Dermal fillers replace the natural collagen within your skin that is gradually lost over the years. The main products all contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that binds with the water in your skin to plump it out and make it look younger and more radiant.
The most commonly known brand is Restylane but there are numerous fillers including Perlane, Juvederm, Belotero, Hydrafill, Teosyal and most are made of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid.
Dermal fillers are usually recommended for lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, to enhance your lips to make them appear fuller and to define your facial contours. We also have filler treatments which hydrate the tell-tale ageing areas on the back of hands and decolletage, thereby smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles.
The results are instant, and last for 6 to 12 months. Treatments can be repeated indefinitely.
