Botox and Dermal Fillers

Botulinum Toxin injections

Facial lines are softened with Botulinum Toxin that is injected into muscles of facial expression which weakens the unwanted actions of these muscles. Typical treatment areas are the frown, forehead and crow’s feet or laughter lines. The combination treatment of frown and eyes shapes the eyebrow which also gives an ‘open-eyed’ effect. In certain patients, who may be suitable for treatments around the chin and mouth, an improvement in down- turned corners of the mouth, gummy smile and softening of smoker’s lines is possible.

Dermal Fillers

I mostly use hyaluronic acid fillers to shape lips and fill out unwanted facial folds and lines. The effect usually lasts from 9 to 18 months depending on where the filler is injected. The majority of the injections given contain local anaesthetic and I use microcannulas which are comfortable and cause very little bruising. For very sensitive areas I will use nerve blocks.

Fat Transfers

When more volume is required, such as in facial contouring, I prefer to use fat which has a much longer lasting effect. Please read more about this in Fat Transfers.
