Our Treatments

Botox®

This procedure is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the UK and is increasingly in demand because of its effectiveness, convenience, tolerability and, perhaps most importantly, client satisfaction.

Repeated facial expressions cause lines and wrinkles to develop. Over the years these become deeper and can be permanently visible. Botox® temporarily blocks the signal to the muscle responsible and creates a softer and smoother appearance in the treated area.

Botox® FAQ

What does the treatment involve?

Very small amounts of Botox® are injected in to the target areas using a tiny needle. This blocks the impulse from the nerve to the facial muscles, reducing the contractions that cause wrinkles.

Will it hurt?

Most clients experience only minor discomfort from Botox® injections as the needle is very fine and can be gently administered.

How long does the treatment take?

The procedure is very quick and will take approximately 10-15 minutes, with no downtime you can go straight back to work!

What should I do after treatment?

You should avoid rubbing or touching the injected areas and avoid having facials or massage for 48 hours to ensure that the treatment remains at the site of injection and to prevent any infection at the injection site.  Avoid steam baths, saunas, vigorous exercise and alcohol for 48 hours.  If bruising develops, you can apply Arnica cream.  Paracetamol can be taken for mild pain post-procedure.

When will I see results?

Results can sometimes be seen soon after treatment but the effects usually start 2-5 days post-treatment, however, the full effect will be seen after two weeks.

How long will it last?

Treatment usually needs to be repeated every 3-6 months.  Clinical trials do suggest that people who have regular treatment over the first year (ie every three months)will only need bi-annual treatments after this.

Are there any risks or side effects?

Short-term: Most people experience no side effects, however, as with any injection there is always a risk of bruising, redness, slight discomfort and swelling at the site.  If this does occur it is often short-lived and can be relieved with a cold compress and mild pain-relief such as Paracetamol. Rarely but more serious side effects include muscle weakness away from the site of injection, allergic reaction and eyelid drooping, all of which are discussed at your consultation

Long-term: BOTOX® is currently used in over 70 countries worldwide and there has been no evidence to date of any long-term safety concerns associated with the treatment.

Dermal Fillers

Young healthy skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called Hyaluronic Acid. As you age, hyaluronic acid reduces and this causes your skin to lose structure and volume. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm® are a group of injectable gels which are designed to plump up the skin and re-add volume. Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in many body tissues including our joints and in our skin.  Hyaluronic Acid binds to water in the skin, locking in moisture. By introducing HA under the skin, volume which has been lost through ageing will re-appear creating a smoother, youthful appearance. The HA will attract water to it further bringing hydration to the area leading to fresh, revitalized skin.

Hyaluronic Acid has been used safely in medical applications for many years, including eye surgery and in arthritic joints. 

Dermal Fillers FAQ

Are Dermal Fillers permanent?

No, we use non-permanent fillers that last for 9–12 months in the face and 6 months in the lips. Some people can be good retainers of this product and it can last longer.

What does the treatment involve? 

You will need a full consultation and if you are suitable for treatment we can proceed. You will be asked to sit/lie on a couch and made comfortable. Your skin will be prepared with cleansing, and a numbing cream will be applied. When the area is ready the Dermal Filler will be administered.  You will be given after-care advice and details of what to expect following treatment. Then you can return to your normal activities.

Will it hurt? 

Dermal Fillers can be slightly uncomfortable depending on the depth on injection needed. However, during the preparation of your skin an anesthetic cream will be applied to the area to aid your comfort, plus most of the Dermal Fillers we use have local anesthetic mixed in with them too to further minimise any discomfort.

How long does the treatment take?

The length of treatment will depend on the area being filled but generally the procedure takes around 30 minutes.

What should I do after treatment? 

Following your treatment you can expect some local swelling and maybe bruising, a cold compress may help ease this, and arnica cream may be recommended to encourage the bruise to come out.  It is often asked that you avoid any vigorous exercise or sun exposure for 24-48hrs.  Some medications may be better avoided

When will I see results?

Dermal Fillers work instantly so you will see the results straight away.

Are there any risks or side effects? 

Short term side effects can include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the injection site, these can be relieved with a cold compress, paracetamol and Arnica cream if you have no allergies. There is always a risk of an allergic reaction, but this is extremely rare. There is also a risk of infection, this is why it is vital to be treated in a clinically safe environment where stringent sterile precautions can be taken and it’s absolutely necessary to follow the after-care instructions which will be given to you. There is no evidence to date of any long-term safety concerns associated with the treatment, as the body naturally metabolises the product over time. Pregnant or breast-feeding mothers are also contraindicated to treatment.

Lip Enhancement

Over time the sun, the elements, smoking and the ageing process take their toll on the lips. Vertical wrinkles or 'smoker's lines' begin to appear, causing your lipstick line to bleed, the corners of the mouth begin to droop and the lips appear to 'deflate' and lose their youthful fullness.

Lip Augmentation is a simple technique which takes only a few minutes to perform. Ageing lips can be rejuvenated and less full lips can be plumped.

Is Neostrata Skin Peel good for acne and scarring?

NeoStrata® AHAs (alpha hydroxyl acids) refine and soften the skin and remove dead skin cells while keeping the new skin underneath healthy. AHAs help improve a number of skin conditions, including acne, oily skin, Hyperkeratosis and Psoriasis. It also helps to improve the appearance of acne scarring.

Most patients can undergo NeoStrata® glycolic peeling without any side effects. The treated skin is virtually normal in appearance. Although rare, a patient may experience mild sloughing of skin producing some weeping or scabbing. Some redness is temporary and normal. Any of these side effects may be covered with make-up. Rarely, and only if scabs are picked, scarring may occur. Areas of hypopigmentation (lighter coloured skin), or hyperpigmentation (darker coloured skin), may result from a peel, but this is very rare. NeoStrata® is a superficial, controlled, professional peel used by trained professionals and is very safe.
