(Botox) This treatment works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and lines on movement such as when you smile or frown. A small amount of Botox is injected into specific facial muscles with a very fine needle and treatments generally take around ten minutes. The effects of the treatment are seen between 5 - 10 days and usually last up to 4 months.
Botox is also very effective in blocking sweat glands; small amounts of botox are injected into the underarm area to reduce excessive sweating. The effects of the treatment can take up to 4 weeks and usually last up to 12 months.
(Juvederm) Dermal Fillers are smooth injectable gels made from synthesised hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. They give skin volume and hydration reducing the depth of wrinkles creating a more refreshed facial appearance. They add volume to areas such as the lips, cheeks and jawline. Dermal fillers produce instant results and the procedure can take between 30 – 45 minutes, you should be able to return to your daily activities right away. The effects of the treatment can last anywhere between 1 – 2 years depending on type of filler used and area treated.
Variable Pulsed Light is a safe and effective treatment to reduce unwanted hair growth. It works by passing a light beam through the unwanted hair area which is then absorbed by the pigment (colour) within the hair shaft and hair follicle. This generates heat, which loosens the hair and disables the hair forming cells. The hair follicles are destroyed and the hairs then fall out in two to three weeks. For best results several treatments are required.
Photo-rejuvenation treatments help to improve sun damage, age spots and pigmentation. It also improves all over redness, reducing fine broken capillaries and red veins; it also regenerates and improves skin tone, stimulates collagen production and reduces fine lines. For best results several treatments are recommended.
Very good result. Modification to the pulse type to target the finer vessels is required.

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as medical skin needling or micro-needling, is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scarring and some pigmentation on the face and body. This treatment uses micro needles at varying lengths to penetrate the skin and trigger our body’s own wound healing response to produce collagen. Topical Anaesthetic is applied to the skin to minimise any discomfort. Over a course of treatments skin becomes stronger, firmer and skin tone appears more even.
All cosmetic consultations are free with no obligation. A full medical assessment is undertaken to determine individual suitability for specific treatments.
