Facial Muscle Relaxant Injections

Have you noticed that time is starting to catch up with you and you would like a fresher appearance?

Are fine lines and wrinkles beginning to show up and you desire a procedure that will help to prevent further ageing on the skin?

Anti Ageing Injections can be a great solution if you are concerned with lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles and fine lines are caused by the repetition of facial expressions and over years of movement wrinkles start to form. Anti ageing cosmetic injections can help to relax and suppress the movement within the face that are causing your unwanted lines and wrinkles.

Results can last between three to four months depending on the severity of your wrinkles.

Do you look in the mirror and are concerned with deep lines and wrinkles?

It is injected under the skins surface to target volume loss, decrease facial folds, to enhance and contour the face. The main areas to receive treatment include cheeks, nasolabial folds, lips and peri-oral area. Results of dermal fillers can last between six to twelve months, and effects are seen immediately. Dermal fillers provide a softened and youthful appearance.

Lip Enhancements

Would you like fuller, plumper lips?

Are your lips uneven or is your lip line fading away?

Its a very common complaint that the upper lip is a lot finer then the bottom. We understand you want a delicate enhancement NOT to look completely different. Did you know as we age the white line around the lip looses its definition? A lip enhancement with a filler can help create a subtle refreshed lip line, helping you to look younger. This procedure involves injections into the lip area with a volume enhancing product which can help even out lip size, reshape uneven top and bottom lips and help define the lip line. So you feel pouting confident!
