Botox

Creases and wrinkles are a natural process of ageing, sun-damage, laughing, frowning and talking. As a result muscles sag and creases appear.

Botox® is given in a very small diluted quantity to relax the muscels by superficial injection given at specific points on the face. Initial effects may take up to 48 hours to be seen. The effects of Botox ® can last on average 3-5 months, however after sustained use, the effects of Botox will gradually start to last longer, and can even prevent new wrinkles from forming.

Botox® makes a subtle difference and is most effective on the upper face.
Medical treatment Before After


The most commonly treated areas are:
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead horizontal lines
  • Crows feet
  • Brow lift
  • Excessive Perspiration
As with any medicine, there are some possible side effects to Botox® Fortunately, not everyone who takes Botox® Injections will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor.

Minor side effects with Botox®  include symptoms that are generally associated with the injection. These include redness, pain, swelling, numbness, bruising, muscle weakness and bleeding. Normally, these symptoms generally subside within a week after injection.

More serious side effects may include reversible dropping on the eye-lid.

You cannot have Botox® if your are pregnant or breast-feeding, have an existing skin infection, or have been found to be allergic to Botox®  in the past. Botox® should not be used in conjunction laser dermabrasion and chemical peels. You must tell us if you have a tendency to scar, have any allergies, suffer from any autoimmune diseases or are taking any medication.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers is a substance called hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin. It is in the form of viscoelastic gel and is given by injections either after a local anaesthetic cream has been applied, or more recently the fillers come with a local anaesthetic already in it.

Effects are noticeable instantly and improve over the following 2 weeks. Dermal fillers can last for up to 6 months.

The Dermal Fillers we use are Juvaderm® and Restylane® which are amongst the most commonly used over the last several years.

Fillers are mainly used for the lower half of the face and some very deep creases on the forehead

The commonly treated areas are:

  • Nasallabial folds – lines from the nose to the side of the mouth
  • Marionette lines – lines from the corner of the mouth to the chin.
  • Lip enhancement
  • Other facial wrinkles
Side effects include mild bruising, redness and swelling that may also occur around the site of injection. These signs may take 2-3 days to vanish completely, especially around the lips.

Rarely, allergic type reactions can occur after treatment with some fillers. These include prolonged redness, swelling, itching and or hardness and bumps in the skin. Such signs may appear at some or all of the points of injection. Sometimes, they can last for several months or longer, but this is extremely unusual.

If you have a history of cold sores, or fever blisters in the treated area, filler injections may cause them to break out again. In these cases, your practitioner may recommend that you take an anti-herpes medicine before treatment to help reduce the likelihood of an outbreak of cold sores.
