Dermal Fillers – Juvederm/Teosyal

Dermal Fillers literally “fill” the skin out, plumping out the lips as much or as little as you like, and dramatically reduces wrinkles.

It is also effective on the lines around the mouth caused by smoking, deep furrows between the eyebrows and those lines from the edge of the nose down to the corner of the mouth. Unlike beauty salons, we can ensure virtually pain free treatment by administering local anaesthesia.

Treatments are customised to a desired result, based on your consultation. Results last for up to 9 months, dermal fillers eventually break down and are absorbed harmlessly.

We offer a variety of FDA – approved fillers that instantly smooth wrinkles, reduce folds, reduce deep lines and add volume to lips.

Can be used on lips, cheeks, deep lines and wrinkles.

Treatment with Botox: The Consent

If you are happy to proceed with botox treatment you will be asked to sign a consent form to confirm that you have given permission for the procedure to go ahead and that you know all the possible side effects and complications of the anti-wrinkle.

You will also be asked to give consent for before and after photographs to be taken.

About Wrinkle Smoothing Treatments

The injections of botox are usually relatively painless or just slightly uncomfortable, no anaesthetic is required.

Generally, after the initial consultation, the anti-wrinkle treatment only takes about 15 minutes, there is no recovery time. If you have a job, you can easily have the procedure done in your lunchtime and go straight back to work.

Side Effects and Complications of a Botox Treatment

There is no permanent side effect or complication known with botox therapy for facial wrinkles. However, there are several temporary, mild side effects which can occur including:

  • Bruising and mild swelling
  • Pain at the site of injection
  • Temporary double vision
  • Eyebrow or eyelid droop, this is seen in 1-2% of patients. It usually only lasts 2-4 weeks, and is mild
  • Occasional numbness of the forehead lasting 2-3 weeks
  • Transient headache has occurred

In a very small number of individuals, the injection of botox does not work as satisfactorily or for as long as usual.

After an Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

After treatment with botox, simple instructions are given to minimise the possibility of side effects and maximise the effectiveness of the procedure:

DO NOT apply make-up for 4 hours
DO NOT lie down, bend forward or do strenuous exercise for 4 hours
DO NOT rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours

Try to exercise your treated muscles for about 2 hours after treatment (e.g frowning, raising your eyebrows or squinting).

This will help to work Botox into your muscles, although this will not impact your treatment negatively if you forget to do it.

Result from treatment will take from 2-14 days to become visible. The results will last between 3-4 months depending on how your muscles react to the effects of Botox, this is different from person to person. Subsequent treatments can last longer.
