Wrinkle Reduction – Relaxing the muscles that have caused deep wrinkles helps them to reduce the wrinkles or even make them disappear altogether, whilst allowing the remaining muscles to work as normal, giving a natural appearance.
Baby Botox Injections – Treatments involve tiny doses of Botox which are injected into the areas often affected by lines and wrinkles in later years. The results are very similar to those when normal doses are given, but more movement is present and the effects do wear off more quickly. The patient may have to return for the next treatment after 2 months but over time, as with regular Botox injections, the results will start to last longer. This can be a highly cost effective method over the long term since the Botox cost will be reduced for each treatment. Much smaller doses also give less risk of Botox side effects developing.
Botox Prices – By purchasing packages, the per-treatment cost will be more affordable. Botox works by temporarily attaching itself to the nerve endings of the muscles, effectively relaxing the muscles that cause the wrinkles. This is why Botox is most commonly used for mini face lifts but it can also be used for helping with more serious medical treatments.
Botox has consistently achieved positive results but, despite its price, Botox continues to offer excellent benefits and value for money both medically and cosmetically. It is worth noting that it’s effectiveness really does depend on the physician. In less experienced or unqualified hands, as with all medical procedures, there can be risks.
Dermal Fillers – Are made of a protein called Hyaluronic Acid. This is a protein that occurs naturally in the skin. As we age we lose volume in our skin and inserting hyaluronic acid in the form of filler into the skin assists to replace the lost volume.
ReCell™ – Is an innovative procedure that enables the doctor to apply a patient’s own skin cells, collected from a small sample, to an area that requires re-texturing, healing or the reintroduction of pigment. ReCell™ has been developed by Australian of the Year, Dr Fiona Wood, plastic surgeon and burns specialist.
ReCell™ helps to avoid the formation of scars and can replace old scar tissue or damaged skin with the skin tone and colour of the surrounding tissue.
Hyperhidrosis – Is a completely normal mechanism and is a part of the way the body regulates temperature.
However some people produce sweat in far greater amount than is necessary to keep the body temperature regular.
The good news is that effective treatments are available which could significantly improve your quality of life.
Excessive sweating is caused by overactivity of the eccrine gland. This overactivity is linked to the sympathetic nervous system which regulates many important functions of the body. The eccrine glands are found virtually all over the body surface but are concentrated on particular areas including under the armpits.
The eccrine glands can be triggered by smoking, exercise, heat or cold, alcohol coffee and tea, hot or spice food, stressful anxiety of strong emotions.
Facial Peels – Many skin problems are associated with excessive build-up of dead cells making the skin hardened and dull. Problems are exacerbated by exposure to the sun, pollution and other environmental effects, leading to skin damage and disease. Mild exfoliation treatments are usually suitable for all skin types including those patients with acne or sensitive skin. All areas of the body and all age groups can be treated. Individuals who have sunspots, sun-damaged skin, dry, ageing skin, oily skin with enlarged pores and acne scarring are also good candidates.
