It is the UK’s most popular cosmetic treatment for the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. Thousands of men and women each year receive this treatment. By relaxing the facial muscles, this gives a more rejuvenated and fresh appearance.

Lip Fillers

Lip Fillers also known as Lip Augmentation is used to enhance the appearance of thin, ageing or uneven lips, as well as tackling certain imperfections such as “smokers” lines, wrinkled lips, and enhancing the cupids bow. This procedure provides an amazing option for those who require a quick enhancement to their lower face. This is ideal for those who have lost plumpness in their lips through ageing or for those women, however young or old, who feel that they need to enhance the natural size and shape of their lips.

Nasolabial / Marionette Lines

The nasolabial fold (nose to mouth line) is the deep crease that runs from either side of the nose down towards the outside corners of the mouth. This fold becomes more noticeable as part of the natural ageing process, as fat from the cheeks is lost which reduces skin volume. This use of dermal fillers is to fill in the crease and plump the skin to give a more youthful appearance. Similarly, marionette lines (mouth to chin lines) are caused when the skin loses elasticity due to the natural ageing process. Dermal fillers can thicken the skin and reduce the appearance of these lines.

Cheek Filler

Filler in the cheek is ideal for clients who either want to contour and add definition to the area, or for those that have noticed loss of volume in the cheek area. As we age, our cheek bones become less pronounced and sagging of the skin will naturally occur. Fillers can enhance the cheek by adding volume, definition and plumpness. As well as this, sculpted cheeks can improve the look of a jawline too and can also help to lift shadows out of the mid face giving you a fresher look.

Jaw Filler

Loss of definition within the jawline is a tell-tale sign of ageing. Made worse by sun damage, the natural process of gravity can cause the jaw and chin to sag, resulting in a droopy appearance that can affect the look of the entire face. Dermal fillers can enhance the overall appearance of the jaw and chin area, and is a great way to shape and adjust a more satisfactory profile. To achieve a more defined and contoured jawline, at least 2ml of dermal filler is recommended and several sittings may be needed to create the desired effect.

Skin Peels & Treatments

NeoStrata ProSystem utilizes three different Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs); Glycolic Acid, Citric Acid and Mandelic Acid. AHAs are naturally occurring acids found in foods. Many common skin problems are associated with the excess build-up of dead skin cells that make the skin thick and dull and may cause clogged pores. AHAs help loosen and remove the dead surface layers of skin to exfoliate and smooth skin, as well as provide deeper antiaging effects.
