Botox® (Botulinum toxin) is the most popular cosmetic surgery treatment throughout the UK, with more than six million Botox treatments administered each year. Botox is extremely popular for the prevention of wrinkles alongside the treatment of wrinkles. As Botox temporarily paralyses the underlying facial muscles, it stops the skin in its tracks from creasing which causes wrinkles to form in the first place. So if you are looking in the mirror and just starting to notice a few early lines setting in, Botox could well be the perfect anti aging treatment for you.
As the skin ages, it gradually loses some of its collagen and fat. These are the materials that prevent the skin from sagging and cause our skin to become thinner and more wrinkled.
Dermal fillers (or Facial Fillers as they can be known) help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance. These fillers come in different thicknesses, and in general, the thicker the product, the deeper it is injected into the dermis (middle layer of the skin) to help plump out fine to deep lines and wrinkles.
The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 9 months.
Juvederm & Restalyne
Leading brands in dermal fillers Juvederm & Restalyne are soft injectable dermal fillers used to provide up to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. They contain Hyaluronic acid (HA) a naturally occurring substance found on your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume. Dermal Fillers are a leading cosmetic treatment for smoothing out and filling these unwanted facial creases and dramatically reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Dermal Fillers are also the number one choice for adding volume, plumpness and definition to the lips.
