Facial Rejuvenation

Botulinum injections (Botox/Dysport)

The injections temporarily block the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles, which cause wrinkles and lines allowing these to relax. The treatment can also result in a brow lift. Generally, the initial effect is seen within 3 days and the maximum effect is seen 7 days after treatment. Regular maintenance treatment every 3-4 months prevents recurrence. Botulinim toxin injections can also be used in conjunction with dermal fillers for deep lines.
The injections are very quick and simple to perform and are only associated with minor discomfort.

 

Hyperhydrosis (Excessive Sweating)

No more worrying about staining your clothes and body odour. This is a surprisingly common problem, yet it is undertreated because of lack of awareness and its embarrassing nature. Patients treated with Botulinum toxin often report life-changing results.

 

Dermal fillers

Hyaluronic acid is a natural, major component of our skin. Its hydrating, lubricating and viscoelastic properties make the face well-rounded, smooth and well-defined. These qualities deteriorate with age: the upper and lower cheeks become sunken, wrinkles appear and the face's oval shape is lost, affecting its overall shape. Teosyal® is a 100% hyaluronic acid based dermal filler which compensates for this loss, enabling the skin to remain hydrated and plump. Teosyal® is injected under the wrinkle to lift it from the inside and make it lessen instantaneously, thanks to the volume created. Teosyal® has an immediate lifting and volume-producing effect, providing an alternative to surgery. It enables the curves and contours of the face to be redefined.
The results are immediately visible. Depending on your age and structure of your face, 1 to 3 initial sessions will be needed to achieve the desired effect. The lasting effect of Teosyal® is increased with successive sessions. The treatment session lasts an average of thirty minutes and only causes slight discomfort
 
Complications in the hands of a trained and experienced practitioner are very rare and all precautions are taken to minimise any risks. Some bruising may occur but the risk of this is minimised by applying firm pressure immediately after the injections. It is, however, important to let us know if you have a bleeding disorder, or if you are using anti-coagulants such as warfarin, aspirin or ibuprofen.
