Our botox treatments are done with Botulinum toxin type 'A', a purified protein produced by the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum.
The process came into existence during 1970s – 1980s for treatment of blepharospasm (spasm of the eyelids) and strabismus (squint).
The botox is injected into the target muscle and works at the neuromuscular junction by blocking the transmission of signals from the nerve ending to the muscle. The botox therefore causes temporary paralysis that takes 1-2 weeks to work. This results in the reduction or loss of wrinkles and excessive underarm sweating. Botox is one of the most preferred techniques of cosmetic surgery worldwide and is also commonly used for the treatment of crows-feet, frown lines and horizontal forehead creases.
The result is not permanent because the nerve ending re-establishes it's signalling by forming new nerve sprouts in approximately 3-6 months, at which point the muscle regains its activity and the wrinkles begin to reappear, hence treatment intervals is 3-6 months.
Prices for botox treatments start at £155.
Dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane or Perlane) are used to rejuvenate and revitalise the skin through the reduction of deep facial lines. Dermal fillers contain collagen material made of synthetic/natural substance termed as hyaluronic acid, which is injected into the dermis in the form of a soft gel (under the skin) of the client to augment soft tissues.
The experience of millions of clients suggests that there is the least possible chance of any side effects with these fillers, which are biodegradable.
Results are visible instantly. Thereafter, we provide instructions to clients about the possibilities of side effects, contraindications or after care guidelines.
Prices for dermal fillers start at £165 for 0.55ml and £245 for 1ml.
Nithya is an injectable product containing protein and is ideal for use as an anti-ageing and volume correction treatment, as it is
clinically proven to stimulate the production of new fibroblasts post-treatment to create native Type III collagen, a process that is
fundamental in cosmetic medicine.
After reaching the age of 25, we lose up to 1.5% of collagen from our skin each year. This results in the appearance of wrinkles and hollow-looking cheeks.
Nithya stimulates the production of new fibroblasts and this helps to ease fine lines around the eyes and improves facial volume in areas such as the cheeks and also improves the appearance of the décolletage and back of hands. Nithya has been found to be specifically effective in post-menopausal women who have seen their collagen production slow down quickly. Nithya is safe, hypoallergenic, has no reported long term side effects and also gives excellent results.
Prices for Nithya Injectable Collagen start at £200 per session.
Thread lifting is a minimally invasive procedure which involves lifting sagging skin from different parts of the face, neck and body
using special absorbable threads without making surgical incisions. This results in skin tightening and when applied at a deeper level also
results in reduction of excessive fat in specific body areas.
PDO thread lifting is used for treating wrinkles ie. frown lines, smile lines, tear troughs and neck wrinkes. Lifting is indicated for jowl lines, double chins, face contouring, mandibular profiling, buttocks, knees and thigh lifting. It is also used for fat reduction in the abdomen (tummy), under arms or bra line area.
Contraindications are, active acne or skin infection, keloid predisposition, auto-immune diseases like scleroderma, sarcoidosis, amyloidosis etc., anti-coagulant medication, aspirin, haemophilia, pregnancy, malignancy, Hepatitis B & C, HIV and dysmorphic syndrome. Risks and complications include mild swelling or redness for 1-2 days, numbness in the treated area for a couple of weeks or infection in the treated area but we use sterile procedures to minimise this risk. One treatment is usually adequate and can last up to 18-24 months. Follow up is after a month and a top up treatment can be applied during that visit.
