How does it work?
Botox is a substance that works by preventing nerve impulses from reaching the muscle, causing the muscle to relax. Botox injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. Celebrities like Madonna and Liz Hurley are rumoured to be keeping the wrinkles at bay this way. In small doses, Botox works by paralysing the muscles of the face which are used in frowning and raising the eyebrows. When these muscles relax, the fine lines and wrinkles smooth out. Injections take effect about three to seven days after treatment and the effect lasts three or four months. With repeated treatments, atrophy or thinning of the muscles occurs, which produces longer lasting results. Ideal for treating worry lines, crows feet and frown lines.
Only non-permanent fillers such as those supplied by Restalyne and Teosyal are used to smooth lines and folds. Excellent results are achieved while being extremely safe. Any area of the face which has lost volume can be rejuvenated and plumped including cheeks. Results are instantaneous and will last approximately 8 months.
As we age the lips loose volume and can look thinner, this volume can be quickly restored using natural hyaluronic acid filler, giving a more youthful appearance to the lips with instantaneous and long lasting results. This treatment works well to reduce the lines which develop around the mouth, reducing lipstick bleed for example.
