Why Aesthetic Treatments?

The way we think about beauty is changing.

Ageing is inevitable but the good news is that minimally invasive injectable treatments to tackle wrinkles and ageing skin are becoming more effective. So don’t feel shy about accepting a little help to turn back the clock.

Static Lines

Static lines are the ones that are visible when your face is in a resting position; they form as you age as part of the natural ageing process. The quality of your skin degenerates as a result of exposure to the sun and various lifestyle factors, such as diet, exercise and alcohol. Skin structure is weakened and lines form. Dermal fillers are effective in treating static lines.

Dynamic Lines

Dynamic lines are the ones that show when you move your facial muscles and form over time as a result of repeated underlying muscle movement. For instance the vertical lines between the eyebrows or the horizontal lines on your forehead are caused by frowning. The repetitive muscle movement forms a line in the skin. A facial muscle relaxant can treat frown lines by relaxing the associated muscles under the skin, reducing their appearance.


Botulinum Toxin injections have been safely and effectively used for over 15 years. It is the material used for anti-wrinkle injections, minimising the appearance of worry lines, crows feet, laughter lines and other so-called dynamic wrinkles.

The administration of Botulinum Toxin injections is a simple, safe and effective procedure. A very small amount of Botulinum Toxin is injected with a very fine needle into several locations in the face. Because the needle is so fine and only a tiny amount of liquid is used, there is minimal pain associated with the injections. No sedation or local anaesthetic is required, and you can drive and engage in all of your normal dailly activities immediately after your injections. You may have slight temporary bruising of the skin at your injection sites, but otherwise, there will be no visible signs that you have had treatment. The Botulinum Toxin effect will be apparent 4-7days after the injection and will last up to 3-6 months. It can be repeated should one wish too.

Dermal Fillers

Whether you are looking for defined facial contours or softened facial lines, facial dermal fillers can offer you the flexibility to bring out the best in yourself.

Young skin is smooth and elastic and contains a large amount of hyaluronic acid that helps the skin look healthy. As we grow older, the ability of the skin to produce hyaluronic acid decreases and the amount of hyaluronic acid begins to fall. As hyaluronic acid helps to bind water, the ability of the skin to retain water also declines with age. As a result, the skin becomes drier, thinner and less able to restore itself. The loss of skin fullness also means that the skin becomes looser. This leads to wrinkling and the older appearance of the skin. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin in tiny amounts. The result is instant and gives a long-lasting and natural enhancement.
