Botox (trade name for botulinum toxin), is an injectable substance that is used in extremely small doses to temporarily prevent the transmission of nerve impulses to a specific muscle, resulting in the diminished appearance of lines and wrinkles. The treatment involves application of a topical anaesthetic, then a few tiny injections to precise areas of the face. Mild discomfort may be experienced, however, the treatment only takes around 5 -10 minutes and patients usually leave the clinic with no obvious signs that they have had any treatment done at all.
The effects are apparent approximately 3-6 days after treatment and can take up to 2 weeks to obtain the final result. The effects generally wear off 3-4 months later but can last up to 6 months.
Detailed aftercare instructions are given and a 2 week review appointment is offered following treatment.
Prices from £150-£350
A gentle and long lasting clear gel is injected into the dermal layer of the skin. The gel contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body to keep the skin hydrated. It can be injected into areas of the face, neck, décolletage and hands to restore volume and elasticity to wrinkles/lines and deep folds, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. They can also be used to enhance the lips and recontour areas of the face such as the cheeks and chin.
The filler contains local anaesthetic to make the injection process a more comfortable experience. Many people report feeling no pain at all during their treatment and have minimum side effects. The effects of the treatment are visible immediately, and any swelling or bruising is usually short-lived and can be camouflaged with make-up.
The results can last up to 12 months.

An injectable treatment that offers deep hydration to give a smoother, firmer skin in areas that are often susceptible to sun damage and signs of ageing. The face, neck, décolletage and hands are the areas of the body that are usually exposed to environmental damage and can give away our age or regrettably make us look even older.
Many creams may only temporarily moisturise the surface of the skin, therefore deep and effective hydration is fundamental in maintaining a healthy skin tone and elasticity.
A course of 3 treatments is recommended, approximately 2 weeks apart.
£180 per individual treatment or £500 for a course of 3 treatments
This is a condition that involves excessive sweating in the armpits. Unsightly sweat patches on clothing can be embarrassing and lead to low self esteem. Fortunately, this can be controlled.
Topical anaesthetic is applied prior to small amounts of botulinim toxin (botox) being injected into the underarms to prevent the nerve signals that stimulate the sweat glands, thus reducing the amount of sweat in that area.
Improvement in the condition can become evident in a few days. Although results can vary, the treatment can last for up to 6 months, or perhaps even longer. A review appointment is given after 4 weeks.
