ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS FROM £140

 

HOW DOES BOTULINUM TOXIN (BOTOX) WORK?

Botulinum blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond well to Botulinum unless a good skin care routine is in place.Depending on what you wish to achieve the dosages can be altered.

YOU CAN HAVE WRINKLE RELAXING TREATMENT IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:

  • Frown line

  • Crows feet

  • Forehead

  • Bunny lines on nose

  • Brow lift

  • Gummy Smile

DERMAL FILLERS £130-£300

Dermal fillers are injections used to fill out wrinkles and creases in the skin.

They can also be used to increase the volume and definition of the lips and cheeks. The fillers are made from a variety of materials and the effects can be either temporary or permanent, depending on the type of filler. I use hyaluronic acid – lasts anywhere from 6-18 months.

Before you go ahead If you're considering dermal fillers, be certain about why you want to have them. The procedure can be expensive and has its limitations.

LIMITATIONS

Most fillers aren't permanent. There's no guarantee the desired effect will be achieved. The ageing process will still happen elsewhere – fillers will not, for example, fix a sagging jawline.  

WHAT IT INVOLVES:

You may be offered a local anaesthetic cream or injection. The practitioner injects the filler in a series of small injections and may massage the area. The treatment time can vary from 30 minutes to an hour. It may be uncomfortable, but should not be very painful. Afterwards The area may be a little swollen, tender and red for 24 hours. During that time you may be advised to avoid coffee, alcohol, hot drinks and the sun.

General risks of dermal fillers may include:  

  • rashes, swelling, itching and bruising

  • an infection

  • the filler moving away from the intended treatment area over time

PROFHILO £250 OR £400 FOR TWO SESSIONS (IDEAL)

Profhilo is an injectable treatment made of hyaluronic acid (much like fillers) which improves skin quality. Profhilo is produced in a special way which means not only does it hydrate and act like scaffolding within the skin, it also triggers a response in the tissue known as ‘bioremodeling’ which smooths, tightens and gives your skin an inner-glow. Literally.

In short, Profhilo remodels skin laxity and battles crepiness. It is not a replacement for fillers and Botox and can be used in combination with these other treatments or as a stand-alone treatment. Profhilo is working on the skin quality rather than the muscle movement which cause wrinkles (Botox treats this) or for the loss of volume in the fat pads and filling specific lines (fillers treat these concerns).

Profhilo can be used on the face, neck, hands and décolletage.

SUNEKOS FROM £120 

Ideal for those who want to restore the naturally youthful look of your skin and improve signs of ageing, SuneKos is an injectable treatment that’s entirely different to filler treatments; this treatment uses a patented formula which combines amino acids (the essential building blocks of elastin and collagen) with hyaluronic acid. SuneKos regenerates the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) of your skin and deeply hydrates and plumps the treated tissue. This leads to ‘dermal biogenesis’. The result? A reduction in the severity of your wrinkles, hydration to both the superficial and deep layers of your skin, a desirable volumising effect and a dramatic boost to your elastin and collagen.

This treatment is ideal if you have loose, crepey, thin skin and/or a loss of volume around your eyes. It is also suited to help with lines, wrinkles, crepiness, volume-loss and laxity on your neck and face. SuneKos can significantly regenerate your ageing skin and restore a natural-looking, youthful appearance.

SCLEROTHERAPY (LEG VEIN REMOVAL FROM £200

Sclerotherapy is the treatment used to treat most cases of surface veins and has been used for over 75 years.

it involves injecting sclerosing solution directly into the diseased vein with a very fine needle.

this solution causes a reaction along the internal wall of the vein causing it to swella and stick together. As a result of this the vein can no longer fill with blood and will gradually fade over a period of time until it is barely visible.

MICRONEEDLING FROM £60

Microneedling is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing

 

DERMAPLANING £40

Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently "shave" the skin's surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz).
