Q: How and why do wrinkles form?
Many facial wrinkles occur when we use our muscles to form facial expressions. For example, when we smile our eye wrinkles become prominent and when we frown the vertical lines between our eyebrows become noticeable.

When we are young our skin springs back to its initial position after facial expression, but as we get older dynamic wrinkles remain on the skin to form static wrinkles; these are the wrinkles and folds that are present at rest. This process occurs because natural substances such as collagen (the major structural protein in the skin) elastin (the protein that causes tissue stretch)  and complex sugar (which gives skin volume)  decrease with age. This together with environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress all contribute to the creation of wrinkles and folds.

Q: What is a Antiwrinkle Treatment?
Antiwrinkle treatments are a natural, purified proteins that relax wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a rejuvenated appearance.

Antiwrinkle treatments are a prescription only medicine and treatment is only available from a qualified medical professional.

Q:  What do Antiwrinkle Treatments treat?
Antiwrinkle Treatments are used to reduce lines and wrinkles that form in the upper face.

As we age, changes occur at different rates to our upper, mid and lower face. In the upper face ‘dynamic’ lines appear, in the forehead and around the eyes, when we smile or frown. These lines appear because various muscles contract to form different facial expressions. Over time these expression lines begin to linger a little longer, or become a little deeper, even when your face is at rest.

Q: How does a Antiwrinkle Treatment work?
Antiwrinkle treatments works by relaxing facial muscles that cause dynamic lines when you smile or frown. Antiwrinkle Treatments gradually smoothes out current lines and reduces new lines forming.

Q: What do Antiwrinkle Treatments involve?
Antiwrinkle treatments are non-surgical procedures whereby a small amount of the Antiwrinkle treatment is administered into selected facial muscles by a trained medical professional using a very fine needle. Antiwrinkle treatments generally take around ten minutes. Typically, any pain is minimal and brief. No anaesthetic is required and you can resume normal activities immediately.

After the injection, it takes 2-3 days for the Antiwrinkle treatment to begin taking effect after about 7 days to see the full effect.

Q: How long does an Antiwrinkle Treatment last?
The effect can last up to 4 months before lines slowly begin to return. If you have repeat Antiwrinkle treatments, the effect tends to last longer.

Facial rejuvenation with Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an injectable gel that adds volume to your skin and lips with natural looking results. You can expect to receive instant, natural looking and long lasting results with fillers.
Fillers are made from a natural complex sugar. Found within the tissues of living cells including human skin, This complex sugar assists in skin hydration by attracting and holding water. It also combines with collagen and elastin to help provide skin structure and elasticity.  The complex sugar in the filler that we use is not derived from animals.

Manufactured and purified, it is used especially for replacing skin volume, smoothing of wrinkles and for lip rejuvenation and enhancement.

The filler that is used is a complex sugar based treatment which also contains an anaesthetic called lidocaine to help make your treatment more comfortable. Treatment with filler is a Non-surgical procedure. It is administered through injections by a trained medical professional.

Q: Where did those facial folds & wrinkles come from?
We all know time can take its toll on our skin. Repeated expressions can cause wrinkles. Initially these wrinkles will only be seen when the muscles contract like when you smile or frown. As time goes by your skin gets progressively creased, so they can even be seen when your face is at rest.

As you age, your skin also loses volume and elasticity. In addition there may be a depletion of fat around the eyes, cheeks and forehead.

Q: How does the filler smooth out wrinkles?
Dermal fillers consist of a smooth injectable gel and is placed below the skin’s surface to literally “fill in” or “plump up” facial wrinkles and folds that are present at rest, creating a natural and more refreshed facial appearance.

Q: When will I see results and how long will it last?
Fillers give instant results and the majority of people resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Results can last up to 18 months

Q: How long does the procedure take?
The procedure may take between 15 minutes and half an hour. You should be able to resume normal activities on leaving the clinic.

Lip Rejuvenation and Enhancement

As we age, natural substances such as collagen, elastin that give skin structure and volume gradually decrease. This results in the lips and the surrounding area being particularly vulnerable to volume loss. The lips are particularly vulnerable as they have an extremely thin outer layer, which becomes progressively thinner as the body ages. The corners of the mouth can begin to droop, giving you a sad or angry look. Also the V-shaped area of the upper lip, known as the cupid’s bow, begins to flatten out and lips lose their youthful fullness. Vertical lip lines that can cause lipstick to bleed may also begin to appear.

Fillers are indicated for restoring volume and creating definition of the lips and surrounding structures.
Fillers can be used for either lip rejuvenation or enhancement. It can be used to add volume to your lip, to improve border definition of the upper and or lower lip, and to create stronger Cupids Bow.

For rejuvenation, the vertical lines around your lips may also be treated. This gives a more youthful appearance.
