Muscle Relaxing Injections

Introduction

Muscle relaxing injections work by preventing nerve impulses from reaching the muscle; therefore the muscles "relax". These injections are the most common facial cosmetic treatment currently used worldwide and can be used to treat and smooth out wrinkles on the forehead (Frown Lines), eye area (Crows Feet), neck lines and even lift the eyebrows. As part of facial rejuvenation procedures, these muscle relaxing injections have now been used for many years by both women and men. Muscle relaxing products are routinely used by celebrities to enhance their looks and preserve appearance, however these products are now available to anyone who wishes to restore or maintain a youthful look. Everyone can now have a slice of Hollywood !

Treatment Explained

Muscle relaxing products are injected with a very fine needle into the hyoer-active muscle. It works on the nerve endings preventing the release of chemical messages or neuron transmitters, causing the muscle to become temporarily paralysed. The effects can usually be seen within 10-14 days. Limiting the muscle activity softens and smoothes out the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. The injections are almost painless and an anaesthetic cream can be applied to the skin for 20 minutes before injections if preferred. We use several commerically available products based on what is currently in vogue and carries the best evidence for use.

Are there any side effects?

The most common minor side effects are tenderness or mild bruising around the injection site. In a very small percentage of cases there may be a complication called ptosis or drooping of the eyelid which may last a few weeks.

What can I do after treatment?

  • Do not lie down for at least 6 hours.
  • Do not rub the treated area.
  • Air travel is not advisable for 7 days post treatment
  • How long will the effects last?

    Usually between 4-8 months but this depends on the number of previous treatments, the treatment area and the individual's response.

Reduce Excess Sweating

Introduction

Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating as it is more commonly known falls into two main categories; primary hyperhidrosis which can start at any point in an individual's lifetime and secondary hyperhidrosis which is caused as a result of underlying conditions such as a thyroid disorder, diabetes mellitus or gout.

Sweating is an important function as it helps us to maintain our body's temperature but those affected with hyperhidrosis sweat profusely and this in turn causes embarrassment and may affect self-confidence. Areas that can be treated with a low dose neuro-toxin to reduce excess sweating are armpits, the hands, and feet.

Treatment Explained

Treatment involves a number of small injections of a neuro-toxin using a fine gauge needle into the affected areas. A mild stinging sensation may be felt for a few seconds during injections but once complete there is usually no discomfort. There may be slight flow-text redness around the injection sites which will normally resolve within a few hours. Side- effects include mild bruising or tenderness at the injection site and occasionally increased sweating from other sites.

Rare side effects may include itching, myalgia, allergic reactions and muscle weakness. Most patients notice some significant changes within the first week after treatment. The effects usually last between 4- 7 months but may vary according to the area treated and the individual's response. A comprehensive and informative consultation will be carried out prior to treatment. A comprehensive and informative consultation will be carried out prior to treatment.

Cosmetic Fillers

Unsplashed background img 3

Introduction

Dermal fillers are classed as medical devices, also known as soft tissue fillers. They consist of a gel formulation which can be injected into the skin or just beneath it to restore lost volume and effectively smooth out lines and wrinkles. The product range we use is Restylane®.

Dermal fillers are very different to wrinkle relaxing injections. Dermal fillers, such as Restylane® are most frequently used to 'fill' facial lines, wrinkles and folds or add volume deep into the skin to enhance features such as the lips. Both dermal fillers and wrinkle smoothing injections can be combined in a single treatment

Treatment Explained

Restylane® is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce discomfort. However some clients may find that there is still some discomfort during the appointment. Local anaesthesia is available on request.

Immediately after the treatment, there may be slight flow-text redness, mild bruising and tenderness around the treated area. The mild swelling and puffiness usually resolves in a few days and normal activities may be resumed following treatment.

Following lip enhancement injections the initial swelling may last longer than other treatments. Some patients experience swelling for about a week and the lips may look slight flow-textly uneven during this time. This will resolve in a few days.

Each individual and treatment area responds differently. The aesthetic effect on average lasts for 6-12 months. A comprehensive and informative consultation will be carried out prior to treatment.

Medical Microdermabrasion

Introduction

Microdermabrasion is a simple and effective form of exfoliation. It is considered a mechanical or physical exfoliation using crystals to remove the outer layer of dead or damaged skin cells revealing a more youthful skin. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment designed to improve the overall texture, tone and clarity of the skin while restoring the skin's elasticity.

Treatment Explained

This type of exfoliation is performed by gently sandblasting the skin with a high pressure flow of ultra fine inert corundum crystal designed to remove the outer most layers of the epidermis followed with a vacuum suction action that removes the crystals. While the crystals are performing the exfoliation, the vacuum suction action taking place is equally important because it is stimulating the lower layers of the skin. Combining skin exfoliation with regenerating suction, this unique system stimulate subdermal activities that "renew" the anti-aging mechanisms of the skin that slow with age. Microdermabrasion is recommended in a series, the results are cumulative and improve with each treatment.

Microdermabrasion is a progressive treatment, not aggressive. Although one microdermabrasion will yield a fresher, smoother looking skin, generally results are realised after the forth, firth or sixth treatment. Average treatment protocol is 4-12 treatment. How many treatments might be necessary will depend on the condition of the skin and the needs of the client. Initially treatments can be performed every 7-10 days or 10-14 days apart. Once the series of treatments is completed it is recommended that monthly maintenance continue in order to maintain the desired result.
