Facial Rejuvenation

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) therapy for wrinkle correction

Laughter lines and wrinkles are formed from the natural repeated, dynamic, movement of our face over time. Botox is a natural purified protein, which is widely used to help reduce the signs of ageing by minimising the appearance of crow’s feet and forehead frown lines. This treatment is very safe, quick and painless.

Once you have had your treatment, you can return to work and carry on your day as normal.

The effects last for approximately 3-4 months. The length of time the Botox lasts extends with repeated treatments.

The treatment takes several days to start working, and the results will look at their best from 10 days after the treatment, so if you are planning for a special occasion, it is best to book your consultation up to 1 month before.

They are effective at smoothing out the appearance of deep wrinkles by restoring volume to cheeks, achieving the look of prominent cheekbones. Further, using dermal fillers, lips can be re-shaped to produce a fuller and defined mouth and laughter lines can be minimized. Dermal Fillers can be used in the Face, Lips, Hands, Décolletage and Feet, to reduce lines and wrinkles, and replace volume.
