Improving and removing the visible signs of age
Lines and wrinkles are the two of our clients’ biggest frustrations with ageing. Luckily, we live in an age where they’re easily improved or even removed – and our injection specialist has twenty years’ experience in doing just that.
Why choose us?
Our expert medical practitioner, Dr. Helen Fernandez, was one of the first doctors in the UK to train in the cosmetic use of BOTOX and although we use a different brand – Azzalure – Helen has been working for us for twenty years, delivering every injectable treatment we’ve performed since we opened.
What does treatment involve?
Injectable treatments have a very long history of safe, effective use. For example, before they were used on wrinkles, they treated muscular problems like eyelid and facial spasms in cases of Parkinson’s disease. They work by temporarily relaxing the target muscle, which allows the skin above the muscle to smooth out.
Some of the areas we can improve include:
- Between the eyebrows (glabella lines)
- Crow’s feet
- Around the eyes
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Lipstick bleed lines
- Corners of the mouth (frown lines)
- Sweat glands to prevent hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
Injections take between 5 and 7 days to work, and results last between 3 and 6 months. If your muscles are particularly well-developed, it might take a few treatments to see impressive results, but most people start seeing the difference after the first treatment. Even better, patients who have treatments for more than a year don’t have to repeat them as often – it can drop to as little as two visits a year to maintain the effect.
To see the very best possible results, we can combine injectables with other treatments like dermal fillers and lasers . Once the injection has relaxed the underlying muscles, the skin is better able to produce collagen because it stays relaxed and smooth.
