BOTOX
What problems can Botox address?

Crows feet around the eyes
Frown lines
Forehead lines
Excessive sweating – underarms, hands and forehead
Jaw clenching /TJM
Facial slimming
Bunny Lines
Gummy Smile
Downturning nose tip

Does the injection hurt?

A very tiny needle is all that is needed for the procedure. Some patients report minor and temporary discomfort from the injection

How long does it take?

Between 15-30 minutes depending on treatment required

Can it be done in my lunch hour?

Yes

When will I see results?

Botox should starts working 3-5 days after treatment, however results take up to 10 days to take full effect.

How long does Botox© last?

This depends entirely on the patient, but a single treatment of Botox© will normally be sustained for approximately 3-6 months. You will notice a gradual fading of its effects. At this point you will return to your practitioner for your next treatment

If I have Botox© once will I always have to?

No. The effects are temporary, after approximately 3-6 months effects will fade and eventually the skin returns to its original appearance. However, as the muscles making the lines will not be doing so while the Botox© is working, the lines will not become as marked as they would without treatment so some long term benefits will be evident.

Does the time between procedures change?

There is some evidence that the muscles that are relaxed during a treatment 'forget' the movements they were making and so with regular treatment the time between treatments should lengthen.

Is it safe?

Botulism toxin is a well recognised and used drug in many different areas of medicine with a good safety record. There is no risk of contracting botulism. Facial expressions will remain the same for the most part. There is little to no recovery time after a procedure. It is safe to have multiple procedures performed

Contraindications:

Any adult can be treated, except those pregnant or breastfeeding



FILLERS
What problems can fillers address?

Fillers can be used for:

Any deep static lines
Lines around mouth and nose
Check Augmentation
Lip enhancement

Does the injection hurt?

A very tiny needle is all that is needed for the procedure. The filler we use has a local anaesthetic in it to numb the area. Some patients report minor and temporary discomfort from the injection. For lip enhancement, an anaesthetic cream is applied and ice afterwards as the lips are prone to swelling. This swelling is temporary.

How long does it take?

A dermal filler treatment usually takes around 30 minutes.

Can it be done in my lunch hour?

Yes

When will I see results?

Results are immediate and improve over 48 hours

How long do fillers last?

Typically, the results of dermal fillers last six to nine months but this varies from one person to another. The filler is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so the lines, wrinkles, cheeks or lips will ultimately return to their previous appearance without top up treatments. Most clients choose to have another treatment at around 8 months

What are dermal fillers?

A dermal filler is a substance which is injected into the skin to plump it up, make it firmer and smooth out lines and wrinkles. Fillers are made up of Hyaluronic Acid which is naturally found in the body

Is it safe?

The dermal fillers we use are extremely safe with a low incidence of allergic reaction. There is, however, a very small possibility of allergic reaction, which will be discussed with you when you visit your practitioner. You can expect some degree of redness and swelling after the treatment, which usually clears up within 1-2 days

Contraindications:

Any adult except those pregnant or breastfeeding women



DERMAROLLER
What problems can DermaRoller address?

Atrophic scars
Acne scarring
Uneven skin pigmentation
Dull complexion

How does it work?

Dermaroller, or microneedling, is a small barrel with lots of very fine needles all around it. The needles we use are 1.5mm which are medically proven to deliver the best result. The barrel is rolled in 6 directions very quickly over the area being treated. It causes minute 'injury' to the skin and the layers below and this promotes a healing process which has been proven to generate new collagen growth and remodelling. It is a very successful treatment which has been tested and proven. It is recommended that you have a course of 4 treatments 4-6 weeks apart.

Does it hurt?

Dermaroller is by nature more uncomfortable than some of the other procedures we offer. For this reason we apply an anaesthetic cream to the area for 45 min before the procedure is carried out. It is uncomfortable while being done but will not hurt afterwards.

How long does it take?

It depends on the area being treated but usually no more than 20 minutes. You will have to arrive 45 minutes before a treatment to have an anaesthetic cream applied to make the procedure more comfortable.

Can it be done in my lunch hour?

No. Your face will be quite red for 1-2 days and we would recommend that you factor this into your lifestyle and perhaps always choose an appointment whereby you can go home or do not have any important engagements to attend immediately after or the next day.

When will I see results?

Once the healing process has started the results will become evident over the next few weeks and as you have each subsequent treatment the results will improve each time.

Is it safe?

It is an extremely safe procedure with recognised benefits.

Contraindications

Pregnant or breast feeding women. Any bleeding disorders.
