Botox and dermal filler treatments at our Surbiton practice.
Although it is far from certain that the winter weather is over, many of you will probably have noticed the first signs of spring with the potential promise of warmer weather ahead. It is often around this time of year when many people start to think about their holidays and generally going out more once the warmer weather arrives.
The warmer weather also often improves our appearance as the sun provides the vitamin D that we need for healthy skin, and the heat of the sun can bring a certain glow to our faces.
For many people though, although there is improvement in their skin tone, the lines and wrinkles that occur over the years can leave them less than satisfied with their appearance.
At the Confidental Clinic in Surbiton, we have a fully trained and experienced facial aesthetics team on hand to help you to ease out the lines and wrinkles that can detract from your appearance. With a simple and rapid procedure, you can, again, have smooth and younger looking skin for your summer holiday and beyond.
A number of factors can increase the number of lines and wrinkles on the face. These include smoking, alcohol, excess sun and, simply, getting older. By using a product called Azzalure which is injected into the appropriate areas, your wrinkles can be greatly reduced. Azzalure contains the active ingredient Botulinum A, also often known as Botox. Although this is a toxin, it is perfectly safe when administered professionally in the correct doses. There is no risk of having the ‘botox stare’ as some call it and you will be able to laugh and frown as you did before the procedure.
The injection itself is painless and you should not experience any after effects, although there may be some slight bruising in the area of the injections and you may wish to consider this when arranging the date of your appointment. Any slight bruising should wear off within a few days.
Whilst also used for reducing wrinkles in some situations, dermal fillers are perhaps better known for ‘filling out’ areas that have sunken or thinned due to the loss of the collagen in our skin which gives it its elasticity. Dermal fillers are an excellent method of replacing collagen and can be used very effectively to improve the cosmetic appearance of your lips and cheeks.
Both of these procedures produce excellent results that should last for between three and six months. Many of our Surbiton patients like to receive facial aesthetic treatments at regular intervals to maintain their appearance, and it is safe to do so. Equally, if you are looking to have the treatment as a ‘one off’ for a wedding or holiday, for example, we are happy to help you with this too.
