GLOSSARY

Anti wrinkle injections

The aim of Botox® injections is to temporarily interrupt facial animation, by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes.  This simple safe and effective treatment to temporarily soften or fade frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet results in a refreshed rejuvenated appearance .

What is Botox?
Botox® is a toxin (botulinum toxin) produced by the bacteria responsible for botulism food poisoning. However the amount of toxin used is minimal and extremely safe. The active substance in Botox® has been used in medicine for 50 years. Initially, it was used to treat strabismus (lazy eye), blepharospasm (eyelid twitch) and other muscle rigidity problems. More recently it has become a popular cosmetic treatment approved in 2002 by the FDA for the reduction of glabella (the deep creases between the eyes).

How does it work?
Botox® irreversibly weakens the muscle by interrupting the chemical message (the release of acetylcholine) from the nerve endings to the muscle. By reducing the movement of muscles the skin stops being creased and is allowed to recover, causing lines to soften or fade away. Depending on each individual and the dose used, the response to treatment can vary from relaxation of the muscles to an inability to move the muscles. Although a number of sites respond very well, static wrinkles due to sun damage will not usually improve with Botox® since they are not generated by muscle activity .

How long does the treatment take?
The procedure takes about 5 to 10 minutes. You will be asked to move certain muscles of the face, so I can observe how your individual muscles work. An extremely fine short needle is used to inject the Botox® into the appropriate areas and  most people find that the injections cause only mild discomfort.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are clear hyaluronic acid gels which closely mimic the natural hyaluronic acid in our skin. They are injected just beneath the surface of the skin and are one of the most popular treatments for filling and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.


Hyaluronic acid volumisers can be injected into different layers of the skin to correct volume loss and structural defects and also can be used for contouring facial features.

Skin boosters

Skin boosters are the secret to glowing and refreshed skin and improved  skin quality in either the face, hands, neck or décolletage.

Why do we need Restylane skin boosters?
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our body and keeps our skin hydrated, soft and flexible. Hyaluronic acid is steadily lost as we age. The purpose of Restylane skin boosters is to add hyaluronic acid that has been lost and to restore skin quality, bringing back a youthful glow to your face, neck, chest and hands.

How does it work?
The treatments infuse a thin layer of micro-droplets of stabilised hyaluronic acid beneath the skin surface to provide long term deep hydration from within. The treatments gradually build up your skin’s smoothness and dewy more radiant appearance . They moisturise and strengthen your skin from within, improving texture and elasticity.
