What Is It? Subject to a face-to-face consultation this treatment is used for treating the appearance of wrinkles and lines caused by overactive facial muscles and ageing and are a popular non-surgical and minimally invasive aesthetic treatment.
Treatment Areas Effective for treating wrinkles around the eyes (crow's feet), forehead lines, frown lines, 'smoker's lines' (around the lips), nose wrinkles ('bunny lines'). Can also be used to treat bruxism (teeth grinding) by placing deep into jaw muscles.
Duration of Effect Effects can last up to 6 months on average but can be longer.
Soft Tissue Fillers
What Is It? Injections of Hyaluronic Acid gel used for contouring the face, adding/restoring volume and filling deeper folds and wrinkles in the face. Can also provide 'lift' to structures of the face to reverse the effects of ageing and smooth the skin out.
Treatment Areas cheeks, lips, chin, jawline, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, temples, forehead, nose, tear troughs (pretty much anywhere on the face!)
Duration of Effect dependent on the type of filler used and where it is being injected but lasts between 6 months to 2 years.
Fat Dissolving (Aqualyx)
What Is It? Aqualyx is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring acid in the stomach, belonging to the deoxycholate family, that works to break down fat cells. When injected into stubborn pockets of fat Aqualyx breaks down (dissolves) the fat cells and their membranes thereby permanently destroying them and waste product is excreted by the body over a period of a few weeks.
Treatment Areas Not intended as a weight loss option but instead for body contouring and recommended for treating areas of fat and pockets of fat that are stubborn to remove from diet and exercise alone. Areas include submandibular region (double chin), 'bingo wings', jowls, waist, abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, knees.
Duration of Effect The effects of fat dissolving are permanent but a healthy diet, exercise and weight management is encouraged in order to maintain the overall effects as fat can still accumulate in areas not treated. Depending on the size of the area being treated at least 2 sessions are required 4 weeks apart, with some areas requiring up to 8 sessions to achieve the desired results.
Fat Dissolving (DesoBody/Face)
What Is It? Similar to Aqualyx, this brand is also a synthetic version of a naturally occurring acid belonging to the deoxycholate family that works to permanently break down and remove fat cells from the body. Deso is considered the second generation of fat dissolving injectable treatment which has reported a lower downtime with less side effects and better results with less treatments.
Treatment Areas The same areas for Aqualyx can be treated with Desobody/ Desoface but instead a cannula technique is used - this means less injection points and better 'spread' of product into the areas of fat to be treated.
Duration of Effect Again the results are permanent but healthy diet, exercise and weight management are recommended to maintain the overall results. At least 2 sessions 4 weeks apart are required to achieve desired results but some larger areas may require up to 4 treatments.
