We’re focused on educating you about every treatment we have to offer and of course we have to discuss facial rejuvenation (botox and fillers). On many occasions the lines are sometimes blurred as to most they both seem to provide the same solutions. Let’s demystify the confusion and tell you exactly how they differ and how either treatment may benefit you.


Facial Rejuvenation using Botox


What is it?

This is a natural purified protein that primarily used to temporarily relax the muscles in your face that cause lines and wrinkles. Botox can also be used to treat medical conditions, like hyperhidrosis, which causes excessive sweating. This treatment is the most tested product on the market and as a result, it is the most known. Over years of studies and testing, botox has been used significantly in medicine, which makes it the safest product. It is also certified in the medical and cosmetic field, so the regulatory use is perfectly safe.


What will this involve?

After any botox treatment, it is safe for you to go about your daily routine as no down time is required. Although this is the case, you may experience slight bruising and swelling right after the treatment, due to the needle. This can be covered up by makeup straightaway, should you need to. The side effects are very small and very short term, so you can go straight to your normal routine or even catch a flight post treatment.


Is this treatment for you?

Botox can be used by anyone. Its primary use is for the reduction of fine lines and skin rejuvenation so if this fits your requirements, you are suitable for this treatment. The treatment works by injecting the fluid into your muscles, which helps to improve the look of frown lines between your eye brows for a short period of time. You can also have botox injected into the area at the side of your eyes, to reduce crows feet lines.


When to avoid botox?

Although it is a safe treatment and almost every can benefit from botox, it is advised to avoid this treatment if you have certain medical conditions, so please let us know. There are a few conditions that we advise against, such as pregnancy or breastfeeding. These conditions have not been clinically tested, but medical professions do advise against giving this treatment under these circumstances.


What results you can expect to achieve?

The number one thing you achieve from this treatment is softness of lines and wrinkles on your face. These results can be adjusted if you’d like a very natural look. The longevity of each treatment varies depending on each person, so yours may last anything from 3 to 6 months.

You can walk into our clinic, tell us what lines you’d us to soften and we will give you a full overview to make sure that there is balance. Although you may have a specific line that you don’t like, it’s important to us to look at your entire face, to make sure that treating the area you’ve chosen will balance well, as treating one line may look unnatural overall. We will walk you through the entire process, so you’ll always feel confident before we’ve even started.



Facial Rejuvenation using Fillers

What is it and how does it work?

With age, the collagen and elastin in our skin reduces as our cells produce less and less over time. This leaves our really delicate and less able to fix itself, which leaves it dryer and thinner. Our youthful skin has plenty of hyaluronic acid, which diminishes as we age, so we end up fine lines an wrinkles. This is where dermal fillers come in, to smooth lines and wrinkles by giving our skin a boost, making our skin fresher and youthful.

Fillers involve injecting hyaluronic acid through a small needle into your skin. The treatment is fast, so discomfort is at a minimal and results are immediate. You can treat fine lines and even deeper parts of your skin because fillers are safe and leaves no scaring. It is also very popular as lip fillers to add volume. As hyaluronic acid can be found naturally in the body, fillers are not invasive, which makes it easier and safer to use.


What does this treatment involve?

The process can take around 30 to 45 minutes and the effects can last for up to 18 months after your treatment. As with any injectable treatment, you should expect some bruising or swelling in the treated areas, but this should subside within 24 hours and you can cover this up with make-up if you need to go out and about.


Is this treatment for you?

Derma fillers can be used by a wide variety of people and the most popular use is skin rejuvenation and the reduction of facial lines and wrinkles. Other clients may choose to use fillers to even out their facial features, predominantly runners or those who take part in high impact activities. Fillers will create a natural volume to your face, which some of us start to lose as we age.


When should you avoid this treatment?

Although there are no known risks to using fillers, it advised to avoid this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.


Result from this treatment?

The results are always very natural, so should leave you looking fantastic for years to come. These treatments last between 18-24 months and towards the end you will notice subtle softness, so no dramatic changes as the treatment wears off. This is when you need to book your next appointment to get another top-up in the right areas.

You may choose a specific area that you’ll like to have treated, but we will do an overall look at your entire face to make sure that you will end up with a natural finish.
