Wrinkle Relaxing Injections
Botox, Vistabel.

Botulinum Toxin, the most well known brand of which is Botox, is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium.
It can be injected into muscles, most commonly in the upper face, causing temporary paralysis of those muscles and resulting in a smoother, less wrinkled and more youthful appearance.
Botox injections are now administered world-wide and have been shown to be both a safe and effective way of ridding the face of wrinkles.

The most common 3 areas treated are:

This list is not exhaustive. Please contact the Clinic if you have another area you wish to be treated.

Dermal Filler
Rofilan, Uma Jeunesse

Deeper wrinkles and those in the lower face can be treated with a dermal filler (made of injectable hyaluronic acid). A popular area treated and one that looks particularly good after a dermal filler is the diagonal line between the base of the nose and the corner of the mouth (the naso-labial fold). As the skin ages it looses it's elasticity and starts to hang down a little. This leads to a deeper creasing of the naso-labial fold. Thus, a more defined naso-labial fold may be considered to be a sign of age and is a sign that can be corrected with a dermal filler.

The newest and arguably most advanced dermal filler on the market is Uma Jeunesse. This filler is suitable for treatment of all kinds of lines as well as volume augmentation of lips and other areas. Forehead lines, naso-labial folds, and marionette lines (those lines that project from the corner of the lips downwards) are all treatable with this implant. Once in the tissues, Uma Jeunesse coils to adapt to the shape of the tissues - a property called "adaptation viscosity." The hyaluronic acid used in Uma Jeunesse is of non-animal origin, is synthetically derived and has never been tested on animals.

Radiesse (Calcium Hydroxylapatite Dermal Filler)

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Once injected, it provides immediate volume correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.

The correction provided by RADIESSE may last up to 12months which is up to twice as long as some hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers.

RADIESSE is suitable to be injected into:

Nasolabial Folds (smile lines)
Marionette Lines
Corners of the mouth
Pre Jowl Area
Chin
Cheeks

RADIESSE is available in 0.8ml or 1.5ml syringes and is FDA approved.

We also provide a liquid face lift type treatment which involves injection of up to 3ml of RADIESSE into all of the above areas that need correcting on your face.

Excessive Sweating / Hyperhidrosis
Botox, Vistabel.

Many people suffer from excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis. Whether it be the underarms, the palms of the hands or soles of the feet, sweating too much can be both embarrassing and cause considerable discomfort.
Treatment with botulinum injections (Botox, Vistabel) into the troublesome area prevents the sweat glands from producing perspiration and thus the area remains much dryer.
Injections are placed just under the skin and sweating may be considerably reduced in the treated area for anything from 6 to 10 months.
Whilst several areas can be treated, the underarms are the most common choice and respond particularly well to this type of therapy.

We perform a simple skin test prior to hyperhidrosis treatment where an iodine ointment is applied to the skin of the area to be injected to identify which areas sweat the most. Should you attend for underarm injections, please wear a suitable top - either old, dark or strapless - as the iodine may stain clothing it comes into contact with and so it is advisable to wear a top that exposes your underarms.

Please ask for full details and explanations of all our treatments.
