Botox (Vistabel)

Deep wrinkles such as frown lines and crows feet are caused by ‘overactive’ muscles gradually wearing away collagen in the skin, causing wrinkles to appear. Botox is a muscle relaxant which is carefully injected into the skin, relaxing these muscles helping to reduce wrinkle formation and allowing the skin to smooth out.
There are 4 main facial areas which can benefit from treatment with Botox® these are:

  • the forehead
  • the glabellar (area at the top of the nose between your eyebrows)
  • around the eyes
  • around the mouth

It can be used in the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excess sweating) and recent studies have shown that some migraine sufferers may benefit from Botox treatment.

Botox takes approximately 5-8 days to work and will last for 3-6 months

Restylane fillers

Over time, Collagen fibres (a natural protein within the skin that helps maintain the facial structure) breakdown and reduce in number. This causes the skin to lose elasticity leading to wrinkle development.

Restylane is an injectable clear gel which fills out and plumps up these wrinkles.

Restylane is injected into the skin in small amounts using a very fine needle. The gel provides hydration and structure, giving natural volume to smooth away the appearance of lines, enhance facial shape, or create fuller lips.

Results can be seen immediately and will normally last for 6-12 months.
