As aesthetic treatments are becoming more and more advanced, I am also seeing an increase in their popularity at my practice. An increasing number of patients are noticing a lack of volume and elasticity that cause wrinkles and lines as they age yet they are looking for an alternative to a facelift surgery.
Winter has been giving your skin a hard time and summer is not too far away which means that now is the perfect time to give your skin a healthy glow, a smooth texture and a young, more sculpted appearance!

BOTOX: THE CLASSIC NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT THAT NEVER FAILS MY PATIENTS
Deciding on undergoing Botox and/or dermal fillers injections is a great idea as they will restore your face’s youthful appearance in a very subtle manner with no recovery time incurred!
Botox is a wonderful option if you wish to erase frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles or lip wrinkles. When I inject Botox into the muscles responsible for these wrinkles, it instantly relaxes them, improving or eliminating the bothersome lines and wrinkles.
The patients I treat with Botox are 65 years old or younger but something worth knowing is that you should not wait for severe, deep wrinkles to develop before you book your Botox appointment! Getting Botox injections before your skin reaches an advanced state of ageing is great to prevent the formation of severe wrinkles. And remember, Botox is not just for the ladies! The treatment’s affects can last from 4 to 6 months.
Of course, touch ups will be necessary to keep your skin smooth and youthful. Botox usually requires top ups which are in fact full dose treatments:
- Every 3 to 4 months in the first year
- Every 6 months in the second year
- Every 9 months in the third year
A Botox treatment can fit in during your lunch break! You will be able to drive and resume your normal activities afterwards. And since the results are so natural and subtle, no one will know!
THE SECRET TO SUBTLE, UNDETECTABLE AND LONG TERM YOUNG LOOKING SKIN!
My patients often ask me what the difference between Botox and dermal fillers is
and it is a fact that these two products are indeed completely different and do not lead to the same results. Simply put, Botox paralyses the muscles causing the wrinkles to appear whereas dermal fillers plump out the wrinkles from the inside out. While Botox can only improve wrinkles caused by movement of facial muscles, dermal fillers are best suited for a wider variety of wrinkles and creases, such as nasolabial folds, smile lines, and lip lines. It can also be used for nose reshaping or cheek enhancement!
During the consultation I will assess the signs of ageing your face is displaying and together we will discuss whether to go for Botox or fillers.
I use both Restylane and Teosyal dermal fillers for facial aesthetic treatments at my practice. I love how multi-dimensional they are. In using these brands, I get the assurance that I am working with the safest and most efficient products on the dermal fillers market. My goal is to offer predictable and satisfactory results at all times.
During a dermal filler treatment I will inject the hyaluronic acid (which is naturally occurring in the body and a very clear gel) into the skin in tiny drops with an extremely fine needle.
The product also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple. I ensure that nothing is over-done such that the results are subtle and natural-looking.
Restylane and Teosyal work beautifully on those areas that tend to give away your age such as:
- Backs of your hands.
Just as a quick final note, I offer liquid facelifts at my practice. Liquid facelifts beautifully combine Botox and fillers to sculpt, fill up and rejuvenate the face in all the right places!
