We take the time to complete comprehensive facial assessments and consultation to give you the best possible results.
Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a naturally-occurring protein. It can be injected into many different wrinkle forming facial muscles. The medication disrupts the transmission of signals from the nerve to the muscle causing the muscle to become more relaxed. This results in the overlying skin appearing smoother. The treatment only takes approximately 10 minutes and is relatively painless.
The most common areas to be treated with anti-wrinkle injections are the frown, forehead, around the eyes (crows feet), gummy smile, lip flip, brow lift, chin and around the mouth. The results last approximately 3-5 months depending on the person.
Dermal fillers are an aesthetic based gel that are injected into the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour the face and create volume. Dermal fillers work by imitating a naturally occurring substance within your body- hyaluronic acid. By boosting your skin with this naturally occurring substance, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the area instantly.
Prior to treatment, a topical anaesthetic cream may be applied to increase comfort. Dermal fillers last approximately 6 to 18 months depending the type of filler used.
The most common areas treated are the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, jaw, chin and tear trough.
- Lip Enhancement
Dermal filler can be used to give the lips a fuller look and restore lip proportion. We assess your lips and work with you to get the look that you desire. The lip dermal fillers will last for between 6 months and a year.
- Cheek Enhancement
As we age we lose volume in the cheeks. This can cause the cheeks to flatten or sag, which can in turn emphasise bags under the eyes and nasolabial folds.
Dermal Filler can be placed in the cheek area to replace the lost volume and give a more youthful appearance. Sometimes treating cheek volume can improve the appearance of the 'tear trough'. The dermal fillers used in the cheek area can last 12-18months.

BRUXISM (TEETH GRINDING)
Bruxism is the term given to grinding teeth. It can be very distressing for patients and cause wear of the teeth and headaches. Patients often complain of a morning headache because they have been tensing and grinding the teeth at night.
Anti-wrinkle injections reduce the strength of the bite muscle – also known as the masseter muscle. This reduces the ability to grind the back teeth at night which can reduce the symptoms of tooth wear, jaw ache and headache that patients can experience as a result of grinding.
The nerve endings or receptors in the nose react to stimulation by environmental allergens, and provoke an attack of hayfever symptoms. Therefore, by applying anti-wrinkle medication in the nasal cavity, you can avoid the troublesome symptoms of hayfever – itchy, runny or blocked nose, sneezing; itchy or bleary, red, gritty and irritated, watery or streaming eyes.
Don't worry, there are no needles, we use a special nasal spray for administration.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat migraines. By treating the frown and forehead with anti-wrinkle injections some patients with migraines and tension can get improvement in their symptoms.
NON-SURGICAL DOUBLE CHIN REDUCTION
The product is injected into the fat in the double chin area and permanently destroys the fat cells by a process known as adipocytolysis. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they cannot store fat again. Imagine your fat cells are balloons and double chin injections are darts. Injecting the product under the chin is like throwing a dart at fat cells. Once they have been popped they cannot be blown up again.
