Facial wrinkles and lines can be reduced with cosmetic injections into the skin. The two main types of injectable substances used are botulinum toxin type A and hyaluronic acid. Botulinum toxin type A is given by intramuscular (IM) injection to relax muscles in the face and lessen the lines associated with facial expression.
Typically, you will likely to see noticeable results at about four days post-treatment, with the full effects visible at two weeks. These times are averages; the actual time it takes for you to see results depends largely on your individual response to treatment. Dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid gel, which is derived from a naturally occurring sugar compound found within your skin.
Hyaluronic acid gel can be applied with varying layers of thickness in order to correct and contour medium-depth facial wrinkles and loss of volume. Topical anaesthetic is used during treatment to ensure minimal discomfort. Results last anywhere from 6 to 24 months.
Gentle Pro is the next step in laser skin care. This technology delivers non-invasive skin rejuvenation with little to no down time. Laser skin rejuvenation can address many facets of the ageing skin including dullness, laxity, pore size, fine lines, pigmentation and redness.
Treatments are done safely with minimal to no down time using a series of non ablative treatment, while results gradually improve over the course of treatment.
Immediately after treatment, there should be erythema (redness) in the treatment site, which may last up to 2 hours, or longer. The treated area will feel like sunburn for a few hours after treatment. A topical soothing skin care product is applied following treatment. Our registered nursing team are highly trained to tailor treatment specific to individual needs and concerns.
Getting your skin checked annually by a professional is not only important, but also a quick and simple way to identify any irregular spots. Research shows that if detected early, melanoma can be effectively treated.
GPs use a number of tools and techniques to examine skin thoroughly, beyond what the naked eye can see. In addition to self-checking regularly you should have a professional skin check once a year. It is also important to get a professional skin check by your GP if anything suspicious appears, in addition to having your annual skin check.
Our trained GPs can perform a skin check and examine any lesions of concern. They can talk to you about risk factors and family history, and treat some skin cancers. They might also refer you to a dermatologist, if needed.
Skin Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a special regenerating treatment that safely penetrates deep into the underlying layers of skin, aiding the repair and rejuvenation of troubled areas. Your skin has a self-rejuvenating function that is capable of significantly reducing blemishes caused by acne, trauma, pigmentation and a range of other ailments.
Skin Needling activates this process by causing tiny punctures across the treated area. As your skin heals, it produces collagen which forms a new layer of fresh tissue, creating a more youthful appearance on the surface. Side effects are minimal but can include mild shedding, looking slightly sunburned and in some very rare cases light bruising, but usually subside within 24-48 hours.
PRP has become a highly sought-after non-surgical procedure for facial and skin rejuvenation. Natural ageing of the skin means that skin texture and appearance deteriorate over time.
PRP therapy, popularised as the ‘Vampire Facial’ is a treatment which uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth, more specifically autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP). Blood is essentially made up of four components; red blood cells, white blood cells, the plasma and the platelets. We take your blood and spin it in a centrifuge, which enables the separation of the blood cells from your plasma and platelets. This is then re-injected into the skin to stimulate collagen and new skin cells. It is the ideal procedure for anyone who feels worried about injecting foreign substances into their body. Side effects are minimal swelling, bruising and redness around the injection site, which typically subsides within 24-48 hours. Within 8 weeks, you will notice significant improvement in skin texture and tone, which will continue to improve until the collagen regeneration process is complete (approximately 3 months after initial injection).
