Facial Aesthetics

 

Claire can provide anti ageing treatments for men and women.  These include:

Lines & wrinkles reduction

Dermal Fillers

Hyperhidrosis (excess sweating)

 

Wrinkle Reduction

This involves tiny injections primarily into the forehead and around the eye area to relax muscles that cause wrinkles (eg crows feet, forehead lines and frown lines).  This is perhaps the most widely used cosmetic procedure in the world today.  It takes only minutes and can eradicate or reduce wrinkles for up to 6 months at a time.  The agent involved (Botox is a trade name of one kind) has been used very safely in medicine since the 1980s e.g. treating muscle twitching and squints.

 

Can you treat other areas.

Yes, smokers llnes in the upper lip, bunny lines on the nose and lines in other areas (neck and hand) can all be reduced with these injections.

 

Will it hurt?

You will feel a little scratch at the area of injection – the discomfort is minimised by using tiny needles and most people do not find it that unpleasant.

 

Are there any side effects?

You may notice a slight redness at injection sites for the first hour.  Very occasionally people report a slight headache feeling or bruising ide after injection.  There are very, very rare side effects possible such as drooping eyelids but ensuring that you are treated by someone with a really good knowledge of facial anatomy will make these very unlikely.  Dentists are really well placed to deliver such treatments as our undergraduate studies alone mean we have studied head and neck anatomy in greater detail even than doctors.  Added to this further postgraduate studies that are compulsory in our profession, you can rest assured that your treatments will be provided by someone who truly understands the technique.  This is not necessarily the case by lesser qualified practitioners.

 

Who is it suitable for?

Men & women can both benefit from wrinkle relaxants.  Ideally, treatment should start before wrinkles become too deep set.  If deep lines exist on the face at rest, then it is unlikely that they will disappear completely.  Regular treatments will, however, soften these lines with time.

 

Can botulinum toxin also be used for excess sweating?

Yes – it is a really effective way to stop armpits sweating.  The results will last for approximately 6 months.  It is how all those A’ listers wear satin dresses that would quickly show up marks – under all those lights on the red carpets.

 

Liquid facelift using Sculptra

Sculptra is not a traditional filler – it’s an injectable with a difference.  Sculptra replenishes natural collagen for a more natural looking, gradual build-up by correcting the underlying causes of the signs of facial ageing. (Loss of facial volume and natural elasticity by collagen reduction).

 

Who is it for?

Those with deeper lines, wrinkles and folds.

Those looking for a more gradual, longer-lasting effect – 95%of patients remained satisfied with the results for at least 2 years post-treatment.  3 years is considered a normal time for effects to last
