Many of us dream about reversing the signs of aging but don't want to undergo a surgical procedure to achieve it. A popular, and non-surgical, solution for facial rejuvenation is the removal of wrinkles using Botulinum Toxin, more commonly known as Botox. This leaves your skin smooth and wrinkle-free resulting in a more youthful and toned appearance.
As we age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity as our bodies produce less collagen and elastin. Over time, the wear and tear of daily life, muscle use, UV rays from the sun, and a wide range of other factors all contribute to the development of facial wrinkles such as crow's feet and frown lines.
By reducing muscle movement in the areas of the face most susceptible to wrinkling, Botox allows your skin to recover without creasing. Anti-wrinkle injections like Botox restore firmness to your skin, leaving you looking younger.
With results that last around three to four months, many of our patients opt for return appointments to keep their new, youthful look topped up at all times.
Dermal fillers are an example of another non-surgical treatment which has been designed to rejuvenate your natural facial contours, smoothing out lines and adding volume to your lips and cheeks.
Collagen is the main structural protein that gives skin its elasticity and, as we age, the amount of collagen our bodies produce lessens. The results of this reduction in collagen are difficult to hide as visible lines, wrinkles and loose skin begin to appear. Bone density also decreases as time goes by, which can result in sunken, hollow features.
The application of dermal fillers is a safe and simple treatment and appointments normally only take around 20 minutes to complete. The procedure is carried out by a qualified professional under local anaesthetic, using only the highest quality products from trusted suppliers. Whilst there may be slight redness around the treatment area following application, this will disappear after a short length of time.
With immediate results that can last up to a year, you can choose to repeat the treatment when necessary to maintain your new look.
