What could treatment with botox and fillers do for you?

Botox is the cosmetic treatment of choice for thousands of women in the UK. It softens wrinkles to give a fresher, more youthful look. However Botox is not a cosmetic and should only be administered by properly trained and experienced staff.

Facial fillers are treatments that plump up the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases and to create fuller lips. The effects of facial fillers usually last 3-4 months and need repeating for ongoing effect. We only use the best HA fillers.  

How do I avoid fine lines and wrinkles?

You cannot. But you can reduce their impact. First, choose your genes wisely! Some people are prone to facial lines and wrinkles, just like their mum. Everyone can minimize the effects by avoiding smoking and a using good quality face cream with sunscreen (at least SPF 15 is recommended).

Aren’t there different types of skin lines?

There are two main types of skin line (wrinkle or rhytid) – dynamic lines (caused by contraction of he underlying muscle) and static lines. Both can be fine lines to start with but can progress to deep lines if untreated.

So how do we treat them?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to treat dynamic lines by relaxing the muscles that cause the lines. The most commonly treated areas are the ‘frown lines’ between the eyebrows and ‘crows feet’ or ‘laughter lines’ beside the eyes.

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and Sculptra act to replace dermal volume to plump up the skin and soften lines. They are particularly effective around the eyes, mouth and lips and are often used together with BOTOX® Cosmetic to get the best results.

Are there any alternatives?

We encourage all our patients to stop smoking and use a good quality skin products with at least SPF 15 sun protection to reduce ongoing skin damage.
