Anti-wrinkle injection (Botulinum purified protein complex) treatments are designed to reduce facial expression lines. When anti-wrinkle injections are injected into the facial muscles responsible for movement, the lines that are wrinkles directly associated with this muscle movement are softened or diminished by the temporary weakening of the muscle. This works best for “dynamic” lines and wrinkles, and is less effective for fine textural changes on the skin surfaces and for those lines present at rest or “static” lines.
An anti-wrinkle injection blocks signals from the nerves to the muscle so the muscle can temporarily no longer contract. This causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crows feet (lines around the eyes) and frown lines between the eyebrows.

A dermal filler is an injection treatment designed to replace lost volume or to increase existing volume. We use a premium filler which is a sterile, colourless gel consisting of a non-animal stabilised Hyaluronic acid derived from bacteria. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide found naturally in all living organisms and has the same chemical structure in all species and tissues. In the skin, Hyaluronic acid binds water to add volume and pliability. As we age, our skin's ability to produce Hyaluronic acid decreases. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to create volume, thereby smoothing wrinkles and providing a fuller shape.

Sculptra® is a sterile suspension of Poly-L-Lactic acid, which is biocompatible (does not harm the body), biodegradable (broken down or metabolised by the body), and a synthetic polymer from the alpha-hydroxy acid family (AHA/fruit acids). Poly-L-Lactic acid has been used medically for many years in dissolvable stitches and does not require pre-treatment skin testing for allergies. Sculptra® requires injections into the skin to help correct skin depressions such as creases, wrinkles, folds, scars, hollow eye rings, skin aging, and facial lipo-atrophy (loss of fat).
*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. The clinical trial ended at 25 months. The safety and effectiveness of Sculptra® Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial folds in clinical trials.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Injection treatment involves the collection of your blood (approximately 11mls in a Cellenis® PRP tube) and then your blood is spun down using a centrifuge to separate out the PRP portion using the ‘separator gel’ as a special filter. The PRP portion of your blood is then injected back into your skin to stimulate new collagen production, re-energise your cells into rejuvenating themselves and promote hair growth. The product is 100% your own blood by-product (autologous).
