At Melior Clinics we offer the latest in facial aesthetic and non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as Botox London, Hyperhidrosis and Sculptra. These cosmetic treatments offer a safe, non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that is performed on millions of people worldwide to help alleviate the signs of ageing. These facial aesthetic treatments help to temporarily diminish or eliminate lines, winkles and dimples by relaxing the underlying muscles. By reducing muscle movement, cosmetic treatments such as Botox help to prevent the skin from becoming creased, allowing it to recover and causing lines to soften and fade away.
As we age, collagen production slows down, our skin becomes less elastic and repeated frowning may create visible lines and wrinkles and depressions within the face. These lines are caused by over active muscle movement which gradually wear away the collagen in the skin, causing the skin to crease and wrinkles or dimples to appear. These lines are sometimes referred to, depending on location, as crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead furrows, glabellar lines and folds, lip lines, mouth drop or chin dimpling.
Treatment involves injecting very small doses of Botox via an extremely fine needle into the appropriate area, targeting specific muscle groups. This can cause a brief stinging sensation although discomfort is usually very mild and no anaesthetic is required. There is generally no recovery period and most patients are able to directly go back to normal activities immediately after treatment.
