Facial Aesthetics

 

What are wrinkle reducing injections?

Throughout our lifetime, through use of our facial muscles repeatedly, wrinkles and frown lines will develop. As we get older both collagen and elastin production within the skin will also decline and this can lead to more deeply etched wrinkles that do not disappear even when we are not being expressive.

By administering a natural protein, Botulinum Toxin A, the muscles causing expression lines are relaxed and their movement restricted. This allows the overlying skin to recover and the visible wrinkles will soften and can fade, leaving a smoother more youthful appearance.

What does the treatment involve?

It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to perform. The treatment tends to have minimal discomfort as the needles used are very small and fine.

Will the results be instant?

The results of wrinkle reducing injections can start to show within 48-72 hours but it takes 14 days for the full effects to show.  Two weeks after your treatment you will return for Sophie to give you a complimentary review to assess your results and ensure you are happy.

How long will the results last?

On average, it takes about 3-6 months for the effects to wear off completely. Peak relaxing effect generally persists for 6-8 weeks.

What are the common areas to be treated?

The three main areas that we tend to treat are:

  • The frown lines - these are the deep lines that form between the eyebrows
  • The crow’s feet - these are the smile lines that form around the eyes
  • The forehead lines

Sophie will be able to assess you and advise on the areas that you would benefit from having treated.


Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a gel made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies.

It is injected into the skin and binds with water, helping to restore lost volume, smoothing lines and wrinkles.

What does the treatment involve?

You will be given some local anaesthetic prior to treatment to improve comfort. Dermal filler is injected into the selected areas. Treatment time will vary but will likely take between 30-60 minutes.  You can expect to return to work within 8-24 hours after treatment.

Will the results be instant?

You will see some results instantly. You may experience some initial swelling in the injection areas and this will approximately 7-10 days to settle down.

How long will the results last?

Typically, the effects will last from 9- 12 months.

What are the common areas to be treated?

Sophie is currently able to provide lip enhancement using dermal fillers


Hyperhidrosis

Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

 Sweating is a natural function of the nervous system in which the body cools down and regulates temperature. However, some people experience regular excessive sweating, which is more than normal for the environment. This is commonly referred to as Hyperhidrosis. It can occur in various areas of the body where we normally sweat including under arms, face and palms of hands.

Hyperhidrosis treatment involves the use of Botulinum toxin injections to reduce excessive sweating.

Botulinum toxin is a naturally purified protein that blocks the signals from the nerve endings to the sweat glands in the skin. It is applied through micro injections into the skin targeting the sweat glands in the area which requires treatment. It gives life changing results for those who suffer from this condition.

A single treatment can stop your excessive sweating for 4-6 months. Treatment will need to be repeated every 6 months to maintain results.
