WHAT IS BOTOX

Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin made by the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum, an anaerobic bacteria found in soil, Botulinum Toxin is purified for clinical use and cosmetic use. They are also known as ‘wrinkle reducing injections’. BOTOX® is the term used by the manufacturer for the toxin which they prepare.
Once injected in the muscle, the mechanism of action of the toxin, is to cause temporary muscle paralysis through inhibition the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from motor nerve terminals. The action peaks at 14 days, showing it’s full effect and lasts up to ~ 3-4 months.

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS

Fillers are ‘gel-like’ cross-linked synthetic materials made up of Hyaluronic acid (a natural component of our own skin that can be synthesised). They can restore & revolumise skin & facial contours to form a more youthful appearance and are longer lasting than Botox. They can also smooth lines and wrinkles, firm key facial structures and define the shape of certain structures e.g. lips. Static lines and volume loss are best treated with dermal fillers. On average, dermal fillers can last anything between 6-18 months depending on product, depth injected, area treated, body metabolism of product and environmental factors such as heat.

Hyalasing is available in our clinic. This is done to correct the previous badly done fillers. Many who go to dodgy practitioners for cheaper filler treatments end up having lumps. This can be corrected by using hyalase injection, which comes in ampoules.

Hyalase: Price: £100
