facial aesthetics

Facial aging is associated with a gradual thinning of the skin and loss of elasticity over time accompanied by diminished levels of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin.

The aging process is accelerated by factors such as sun damage and smoking, resulting in facial lines and wrinkles.

The following treatments are available to reduce the appearance of these features:

Anti wrinkle injections

Botulinum toxin, commonly referred to as Botox®, is a mild purified protein that causes temporary relaxation of muscles and smoothes the overlying skin in treatment areas.

Botox® injections are most often used to smooth away dynamic lines (the ones during active facial expression) such as frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines with the results lasting between 3 to 4 months.

It has been used for over 30 years and is the UK's number 1 treatment for Facial lines and Wrinkles. It is safe (FDA approved for cosmetic use), quick and can be combined with other treatments.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are treatments that helps to 'fill out' facial lines and wrinkles by placing an injectable material beneath the skin.

Dermal fillers are not used to relax muscles like botulinum toxin, but instead to plump, hydrate, volumise, shape and contour the skin.

The treatment is non-invasive with little recovery time required. Dermal fillers last from 8 - 12 months depending on the amount used and to where it is injected. It is naturally broken down and absorbed by the body over this time.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels will improve the appearance of your skin by encouraging cellular renewal and enhance the exfoliation process of the top layer of your skin, the Stratum Corneum.

This resulting improvement of the quality of your skin improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By re-balancing the skin, signs of acne, sun damage, scars, pigment changes and many other cosmetic dermatological conditions can be improved and many are resolved.

Derma Roller

A Derma Roller is a cylindrical shaped drum studded with very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate.

This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibres (neo-collagenesis) as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis). The procedures are called Scar Reduction Therapy (SRT) & Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
