Botulinim toxin (Botox®) is a purified natural protein that relaxes the muscles responsible for producing the lines which appear with the ageing process. The result is smoother skin and a more relaxed appearance. Botox® also has therapeutic uses when treating chronic headaches, and Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, also known as TMJ syndrome.
How does BOTOX® work?
A tiny amount of Botox® is injected into specific muscles and blocks impulses from the nerve which make them contract. Because the muscle relax, undesirable frown lines and wrinkles are significantly reduced.
Dermal Fillers (Juvederm)
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.
As we age, our faces lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent.
The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyel.
Dermal fillers can be used to:
- Plump thin lips
- Enhance shallow contours
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.
The following popular treatments are offered:
- Treatment of wrinkles on the forehead and glabellar lines
- Crows feet around the eyes
- Treatment for smoker’s lines/wrinkles around the mouth
