Muscle relaxing injections (BOTOX)
BOTOX injections have been used with great success in the treatment of early/ moderate wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is a natural, unprocessed protein molecule that acts at the level of the neuromuscular junction and prevents the formation of wrinkles.
It is a treatment that has been used for decades without any major side effects, and is therefore considered very safe.
BOTOX is mainly used to treat wrinkles affecting the upper half of the face and sometimes the neck. Treatment consists of multiple, relatively painless, injections and lasts 10 minutes approximately. The effects of BOTOX are reversible and last up to 6 months.
Fillers (Hyaluronic Acid)
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural constituent of our skin and helps keep our skin soft and hydrated. With age, our skin loses its content in hyaluronic acid. First wrinkles appear and our skin becomes less elastic and less hydrated.
Hyaluronic acid comes in the form of a gel and is used to fill deep wrinkles, mainly affecting the lower face. There are many different types of hyaluronic acid, depending on the type and depth of wrinkle that it is used for.
Furthermore, hyaruronic acid can also be used to enhance lip volume and contour.
The effects of hyaluronic acid can last up to 12 months.
Non Surgical Facelift
In modern skin rejuvenation, a lot can be achieved by injectables and other non invasive treatments only. Identifying our skin needs is the first step of a successful outcome. A combination of BOTOX and Hyaluronic Acid can achieve remarkable improvement, and those combined with other methods such as mesotherapy, radiofrequency and thread lift, can in some cases avoid the knife altogether.
