Facial Aesthetics

Ageing, smoking and sunlight can all be contributing factors that weaken the fibres in our skin. Lines that appear on the face are a consequence of this change. Treatment can now offer a way to restore a more youthful look. An easy, instant and safe way to smooth out those lines and wrinkles and give you back the confidence of a younger look.

Facial treatments can be divided into two main types:

» Hibernation treatments using Botox

Using Botox for the muscles of facial expression (Frown, forehead and lines around eyes)

Botox injections can be used to make the muscles that cause unwanted wrinkles to hibernate. Injections take effect within 3-10 days.

» Facial Contouring (Fillers) to fill out lines around the face using Hydrafil or Radiesse

Hydrafil or Radiesse can correct lines and wrinkles, as well as enhance lips and cheeks. With a series of light injections your skin is supported and flattened to give a smoother, softer look.

Hydrafil or Radiesse are natural substances found in the skin, so all you are doing is restoring natural elements of your skin. The effect is instant and can easily be completed within half an hour.

How long have facial injections been used?

Facial injections were first used to treat patients in 1976. Since then, many millions of people worldwide have been treated with either Botox or fillers. Facial Aesthetics is one of the fastest growing specialties in modern clinical practice.
