Why Do We Get Wrinkles?
Wrinkles and facial lines result from ageing, muscle activity and your genetic predisposition. In addition, sun exposure, alcohol consumption and smoking can also increase the evidence of wrinkles.
Use of the facial muscles creases the skin when we frown, smile or raise our eyebrows. as we get older, these creases become deeper and more pronounced through constant use.
The facial rejuvenation that we provide is Botulinum Toxin Type-A, also known as ‘Botox’.
This treatment is probably the most popular cosmetic medical treatment for facial lines and wrinkles in the UK and can be used successfully in combination with other rejuvenation treatments. Botulinum Toxin temporarily relaxes the muscles under the skin so that when you frown or smile, the treated muscles stay relaxed and don’t crease the skin.
This treatment can be used for softening the lines in the facial area, i.e. the forehead (horizontal forehead lines), eyes (crows feet), frown lines between the eyebrows, neck area, under eyes and chin. Subject to initial medical screening, both men and women of any age can benefit from the treatment. You should not have treatment if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
The lip enhancement that we provide are Dermal Fillers
These are non-surgical treatments which restore volume and fullness to the face and lips. They reduce or eliminate lines, wrinkles and folds in the skins surface. There are various types of Dermal Filler which are made from either natural or man-made substances.
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin below the crease or wrinkle and have the effect of ‘plumping up’ the skin to reduce the visibility of the wrinkle. They can be used where creases or wrinkles have become permanent i.e. not just visible when the face muscles are tensed. Dermal Fillers can be used around the eyes (crows feet), lips, chin, frown line and cheeks.
Subject to initial medical screening both men and women of any age can benefit from the treatment. You should not have treatment if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
