Facial aesthetics are the modern, least painful and most cost effective way to achieve rejuvenation helping you to look and feel great. The aim of all my treatments is to enhance our natural beauty, not to falsify.
All facial aesthetic appointments include a full assessment of your skin and what you hope to achieve through use of these treatments. We will agree a treatment plan together, prescribing the correct product to meet your needs.
The treatments are then administered by injection to the area of concern. Follow up appointments may be necessary to check on progress, but often simply staying in touch is enough until you are ready for your subsequent treatments. Four week face to face appointments are possible, but for an additional charge, therefore i would recommend we stay in touch using photos and chat to keep costs down. In the rare event of complications, appointments required to manage this will not be chargeable.
All aesthetic appointments will require completion of a health questionnaire, completion of consent form and photography before and after treatment.. None of this information will be shared. On occasions I may request consent to share before and after photographs for advertising purposes, but this WILL NOT be done without your written consent.
There are risks associated with any injections, these will be covered under the consent process, however these are seen rarely and without long standing effects. Any appointments required to manage rare complications will not incur additional charge.
Immediately after the appointment you will look like you have a number of little bee stings on your face. These will settle after 20-30 minutes. It is important that you do not book for facial injections if you have an important event upcoming in the next two weeks as the treatments need time to settle.
Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring toxin, which is now reproduced and administered in minute amounts for a number of medical and aesthetic issues. It is used to disrupt communication between nerve endings and muscles, causing relaxation of muscles in areas which have been causing problematic lines. It is widely known by a brand name of Botox, but there are now many manufacturers worldwide. Although dangerous in very high doses, the tiny doses used in aesthetics are very safe, with some potential risks and side effects, none of which are permanent. These will be detailed in the consent form and again during your consultation. Effects are noticeable within a few days and continue for around 3 months.
This is a prescription only medication, so I will need to see you or have a facetime appointment prior to administration.
These injections are placed according to where you which to see an improvement in visible lines, and based upon the anatomy of your face. The areas for botulinum toxin are the forehead, around the eyes (crows feet) and above and between the brows (frown lines). We will discuss in your consultation, which is the most appropriate treatment for you, based upon what look you want to achieve.
Effects of botuminum toxin maximise within 2-4 weeks, and last around 3 months, however this can vary. Please do not book an appointment if you have a significant event or holiday planned in the following two weeks.
Dermal fillers are a form of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, which can be injected into the skin to improve aesthetics. They are generally made of several types of synthetic, man-made and natural collagens.
This treatment does not require a prescription and can be applied to cheek bones, lips, and deep folds around the nose and mouth, to fill space which occurs as a result of the natural ageing process where our deep fat pads breakdown, causing facial sagging. The filler replaces the fat pads giving instant lift and definition. .
Effects of dermal fillers can last between 3-12 months, depending upon the area treated, product used, skin type and lifestyle choices. Please do not book an appointment if you have a significant event or holiday planned in the following two weeks.
