What is Facial Aesthetics ?

Facial aesthetics are used to soften expression lines and define facial contours. With the careful use of wrinkle relaxation injections and/or injectable fillers can enhance your natural beauty and rejuvenate your skin. Facial aesthetics can give you a more youthful and radiant look, for a more confident you.

Anti-Wrinkle treatment

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment is a proven method by which we can achieve smoothing of the facial muscles. The treatment temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and improves ‘crow’s feet’ in adults Wrinkle relaxing injections can be used to relax certain facial muscles which means that the skin stays smoother and creases gradually diminish. The result is a more serene, youthful look.

Botox is the trade name by which Botulinum Toxin A is widely known.  It has been used for a variety of medical conditions including blepharospasm and muscle spasticity for over 20 years.

Facial Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Areas:

  • Glabellar Lines (Frown)
  • Crow’s Feet Lines
  • Infra-periorbital lines (Extension of Crow’s Feet)
  • Brow Lift (using Glabella and Crow’s Feet combined)

Types of wrinkles

Wrinkles on the forehead most commonly appear in two ways:
As vertical lines just above the nose, often referred to as “the elevens”; or horizontal rows across the forehead. The “elevens”, or glabellar lines, result from squinting, scowling, worrying or just plain thinking.
The horizontal lines may result from normal animation while talking, or from holding the brows up with the primary muscle of the forehead (the frontalis) during times of stress, or just naturally. These lines are primarily the result of continual muscle contraction and can become very deep over time.

Who can have Anti-Wrinkle Treatment ?

The procedure can be used for treating wrinkles in men and women, however men often need slightly higher doses than women.

Contra indications

  • People with infection at the proposed injection site
  • People who have previously had an allergic reaction to Botulinum toxin type A injections
  • People with muscle problems or chronic diseases affecting the muscles, such as Myasthenia Gravis, Eaton Lambert syndrome
  • Children under the age of 18 years
  • Women who are pregnant or breast feeding

How is done ?

This anti-ageing treatment, is often prescribed by doctors to eliminate wrinkles in the upper third of the face.

Very fine needles are used  to inject the serum  into the key areas,so there is very little discomfort and you can resume most of your usual activities immediately after treatment.

The needles used are very fine and approximately the same diameter as coarse human hair thickness.

The pain associated with injections is mild and no local anaesthetic is required.

How many treatment sessions will I need ?

The treatment works within a few days but can take as long as 14-21 days for the full paralysing effects to show through. Anti-wrinkle injections are not permanent, so we recommend repeat treatments at 3-6 monthly intervals to maintain the effects.


Thousands of these treatments are performed every year – noticeable from 2-14 days afterwards and lasting several months. To complement the lasting results of the treatment, we recommend the use of SPF30 sun protection cream, available at all pharmacists.


Over time, with regular anti -wrinkle treatments, the muscles will get thinner and weaken, which means they are less able to create the wrinkles in the first place.  This side effect is particularly useful for treating overactive muscles that have become too bulky over time such as in the jaw area. The procedure  is used in the medical profession to treat muscle spasticities and over-active trigger points such as in chronic muscular pain and headaches & migraines.

Are there side effects of anti-wrinkle treatment

You will be able to drive and engage in all of your usual daily activities immediately after your injections. You may develop slight bruising at the injection sites, but otherwise there will be no visible signs of your skincare treatment.


In rare cases, the anty-wrinkle agent can migrate to nearby muscles, causing some weakness, such as drooping of the upper eyelid. This is a temporary side effect, lasting for a few weeks at most.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used to plump out the facial lines and increase the volume and hydration of the skin. They are used particularly to soften the lines around the mouth and chin area and for enhancing the shape and volume of the lips. These types of fillers are naturally biodegradable and are therefore non-permanent.

How do dermal fillers work ?

The gel-like solution is injected into the skin to add volume and creates a more youthful appearance. Areas commonly injected are nose to mouth lines (naso-labial lines/folds), lines around the mouth (peri-oral/smokers lines), lines between the brows (glabellar) and the lips.

Dermal fillers are known by various brand names depending on the manufacturer.  There are a few leading brands which have got the most clinical data supporting their efficacy.  They consist of synthesised hyaluronic acid, which is supported in the collagen skin matrix.  It is slowly absorbed over time, as the molecules mimic natural compounds found within the collagen in the skin.  Collagen gives your skin ‘bounce’ and over time the percentage of collagen in skin reduces, causing it to sag and develop folds and c

The following treatments can be done successfully:

  • Nasolabial lines (laughter lines)
  • Perioral lines (smokers lines around the mouth)
  • Glabellar (frown) lines (if too deep for anti-wrinkle treatment alone)
  • Chin creases
  • Cheek creases
  • Any other creases or lines on the face
  • Increase lips volume

For the  lip plumping and defining, you will need to have an anaesthetic block.  This will be placed so that the lips are completely numb and so you will not feel any pain when the lip filler is being injected.

For nasolabial folds and creases (laughter lines)  some local anaesthetic cream can be applied  on the area prior to the procedure.  This will sufficiently numb the area, so that the injections are not too painful.  The needles used for dermal fillers are very thin, so this helps reduce pain.

Are there side effects of dermal fillers

There are very few reported side effects with these products, bruising being the most common as with any injections. This is usually minimal and can be covered effectively with make up.

You must mention to your practitioner if you are taking any blood thinning medications like aspirin or warfarin or any blood thinning tablets as one would be at higher risk of bruising.
