Facial aesthetics

Restore volume, reduce lines and improve the appearance of ageing skin

Not many of us would claim to be entirely comfortable with the effects of the ageing process. On our faces, the passage of time gradually begins to show itself in the form of more pronounced lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and hollow cheeks. Lips can lose volume and definition and the ‘tear troughs’ under our eyes often become more prominent.

There is, of course, no shortage of commercial creams and preparations which pertain to create a more youthful look – but these have their limitations.

Another solution is to take advantage of temporary facial aesthetics. In the hands of an experienced practitioner such as our own Jillian Saulters, working in a carefully regulated clinical environment, these treatments are both safe and effective. They can help restore volume, reduce static lines, tighten sagging skin and reduce lines caused by movement.


 

Dermal Fillers

Dermal filler is made from Hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in all living organisms. It occurs naturally within the body and acts as a vehicle to transport nutrients to the skin maintaining structure and volume.

Dermal fillers can treat the following areas:

  • Lips
  • Mouth corners
  • Nose to mouth line
  • Smokers lines

The effects are long lasting, non-permanent and reversible as hyaluraonic is naturally broken down within the body. However the effects are visible almost immediately after the treatment and may last for up to 12 months.

Side effects
Any side effects are minimal although there may be some slight swelling and bruising which will settle after a few days. Although rare, any other possible side effects can be found within the patient information leaflet which will be given to you during your appointment.

What to expect on the day
The treatment itself can take up to 30 minutes depending on the areas to be treated.  We remove all traces of makeup from the treatment area and use topical anaesthetic to aid with any discomfort. The product is administered using an ultra fine needle to minimise pain and bruising.

Aftercare
Full written aftercare treatment will be given yo you after your appointment; but as a general rule we advise you avoid rubbing the treatment area, avoid any facial treatments, sauna’s and extreme temperatures for up to 2 weeks. We will arrange a review appointment approximately 3 weeks later for any adjusting that may be necessary.
 

Anti-wrinkle injections

Botulinum toxin is a purified protein which, when injected into the muscle, allows it to temporarily relax. This can help soften facial expressions minimising wrinkles and creating a more refreshed and youthful look.

What areas can be treated?

  • Forehead
  • Crows feet
  • Glabella (frown lines)
  • Brow lift

You will usually see the effect of the treatment between 3 and 5 days (although this can be slightly longer and varies from person to person). This can last up to 4 months depending on the strength of your muscles and your individual response to the product.

Side effects
Botulinum toxin’s side effects are usually very minimal and temporary – there may be some slight bruising at the injection site and a little discomfort during the treatment. In very rare cases Botulinum toxin may cause muscle weakness, all other  may result in muscle weakness. Any other possible side effects can be found within the patient information leaflet which will be given to you during your appointment.

What to expect on the day
The treatment itself usually takes around 15 minutes.  We remove all traces of makeup from the treatment area and although you shouldn’t feel discomfort we can use a topical anaesthetic if you wish. The product is administered into the muscle using an ultra fine needle to minimise pain and bruising.

Aftercare
Full written aftercare treatment will be given yo you after your appointment; but as a general rule we advise you avoid rubbing the treatment area, avoid any facial treatments, sauna’s and extreme temperatures for up to 2 weeks. We will arrange a review appointment approximately 3 weeks later for any adjusting that may be necessary.
