By using facial muscles repeatedly throughout our lifetime, the skin is creased in areas of greatest use.
The ageing process causes the slow down of collagen and elastin production in the skin so that as we get older these areas of over use become damaged and the lines become permanent.
Botulinum toxin (Botox) treatment reduces movement of muscles in these areas and the skin stops being creased and is allowed to recover causing the lines to soften or even fade away.
Dermal fillers are used to soften and contour lines, folds, and wrinkles by adding volume and creating a more youthful appearance.
The most commonly used dermal fillers are Hyaluronic based. Fillers can also be used for:
– Lip enhancement or augmentation
– Treatment of Marionette lines, Nasolabial lines and Peri-oral/ Smokers lines
– Non-surgical rhinoplasty
– Cheek enhancement
– Non-surgical / Liquid face lift
– Chin Augmentation
– Sub-malar augmenation
– Lateral Brow Lift
– Hand rejuvenation
