Anti-Ageing Injections/ Muscle relaxants
Facial expressions such as smiling and frowning cause the muscles of the face to compress the skin. Contraction of the facial muscles can cause the formation of lines and wrinkles. Anti-ageing or Botox® injections are an extremely popular treatment for lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles and creating a softer and smoother appearance.
Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid which is a safe and natural sugar based product. Dermal Fillers are temporary as hyaluronic acid is eventually absorbed by the body and naturally broken down. Dermal fillers can be used to volumise many areas and is an extremely versatile treatment. They provide a long-lasting, natural looking treatment that can be used to lift, reshape and fill out problem areas for a more youthful look. I use the world-renowned Juvederm Ultra ® and Vycross ® range of dermal fillers.
As they say, “the eyes are the window to the soul”. Your eyes say so much about you, so our treatments allow you to obtain a refreshed and healthy look to prevent a tired and weary appearance. Using my experience, knowledge and skill, I will make sure the small changes I make maintain the perfect balance and an overall natural look whilst opening up the eye area so others can see into your soul!
I believe that the eyes are a person’s most important feature. I can open up the eye area which will in turn highlight your whole face. It’s not just about reducing fine lines and wrinkles at the side of the eyes known as Crow’s Feet, it’s about a youthful, fresher overall look. Both Botox® and dermal fillers can be used around this area.
Tear troughs are the under eye region where a hollowness forms making them seem dark and give a permanently “tired” look to your face. These hollows can be skilfully diminished by the careful placement of dermal filler injections at the junction from the thinner skin just below the eye to the thicker skin and transition to the cheek area which restores the volume loss, minimises dark circles, reduces shadowing and shallowness, reduces the appearance of eye bags as well as hydrating, for a fresh as a daisy appearance. I only use the best dermal filler for this procedure.
As well as hollows underneath the eyes, during the ageing process hollows can form in the temple region too. This treatment uses dermal filler injections to fill and smooth out the hollows which opens out the eye area and gives a more youthful appearance.
Non- Surgical Brow Lift
Also known as the ‘Hollywood’ lift, this simple anti-ageing injection treatment will open up the whole eye area and can give you back a youthful brow arch. I believe that a person’s eyebrows are the most expressive feature and a perfectly proportioned brow with lift and shape can frame the eyes. Eyebrow drooping can overshadow the eyes giving a heavy and tired look.
We can look at anyone’s face and determine what age range they are within seconds! How do we do this? We recognise certain facial features and by noticing the small changes of an ageing face over time. By reversing these changes we can give a more youthful look to the face without the treatments looking fake. We can literally turn back time!
Nose to Mouth Lines
Also known as nasolabial folds, this is one of the most commonly requested treatments with great results. The fold and shadow that forms between the nose and mouth is treated with a small injections of dermal filler which will then plump the skin to soften the shadow or crease to create a smoother and more youthful look. This procedure offers instant correction for deep lines. The effects of the treatment are usually visible immediately and gives you desired results without the cost of surgery. Results last 6-24 months depending on the product.
Mouth to Chin Lines
Also known as marionette lines, like the fold from the nose to mouth, the fold and shadow that forms between the mouth and chin is treated with a small injections of dermal filler. Skin loses elasticity due to the natural ageing process and the damaging effects of sun exposure so by using dermal fillers we can soften the shadow or crease and also treat a downturned mouth. Fillers not only help to improve these deep wrinkles, but they restore and moisturise skin in the area. They work by providing extra fullness to the area where wrinkles are most prominent. Results last 6-24 months depending on the product.
Non-Surgical Nose Job ‘Rhinoplasty’
By skilfully using dermal fillers in dips and depressions, the non-surgical nose job is a gentle and effective alternative to the pain and discomfort of surgery. Non-surgical nose reshaping is a cosmetic procedure, so it cannot reduce the size of your nose, however after having treatment your nose can appear smaller. The treatment that we offer is safe, non-invasive and affordable. The outcome is to improve the shape and profile of the nose with immediate visible results.
Cheek Enhancement is ideal for individuals who either want to add definition and contour to the area or for those that have noticed loss of volume in the cheek area. As we grow older, our cheek bones become less pronounced and sagging of the skin will naturally occur. Cheek enhancement is an excellent way to achieve a more beautiful look, playing a key supporting role to other features. I call cheeks the coat hanger of the face! I treat it using a technical method of anatomical landmarks with dermal filler injections to sculpt and uplift the shape, creating definition on the cheek bone. It gives immediate effects without the potential downtime and severe bruising from surgery. The results last 6-24 months depending on the product used.
Chin Augmentation and Reshaping
The chin is a key feature for facial structure. By gently reshaping the chin with dermal filler to give stronger definition and a more heart shaped face using the latest aesthetic techniques provides a completely natural looking result improving structure of the jawline.
Jowls and Jawline
In the process of ageing it can disrupt and distort the normally straight and defined jawline which can be treated by using state of the art techniques to cleverly inject dermal filler along the jawline and relax muscles causing distortion with Botox® injections. By using Botox® injections in the masseter muscles, we can reduce the muscle bulk and create a thinner, narrower looking face. So if you have a sagging jawline from the ageing process, want a stronger jawline or simply want to slim down the face, this is the treatment for you.
‘Visage’ Lift – Non-surgical facelift
Our newest treatment with extraordinary results! The non-surgical facelift by using the most up-to-date techniques and the latest advanced dermal fillers. This approach gives a more youthful look tackling the key components of ageing to recreate the desired “V” shape to the face. By doing this we create an immediate rejuvenated and redefined look without surgery at a fraction of the cost or risk. As part of the non-surgical facelift, we also look at facial profiling using key scientific principles of beauty to rebalance facial features.
The perfect POUT! Lip Augmentation is used to enhance the appearance of thin, aged or asymmetrical lips. The treatment provides the perfect solution to achieving a naturally seductive and desirable pout. Your lips and mouth show your emotions and full lips have long been seen as a sign of youth and beauty. So get your plumped up pout now!
There is a real artistry in creating the perfect lips. Your body produces less hyaluronic acid over time, essential for volume, so by using lip fillers I can replace this volume loss to acquire a full but natural look. The shape, volume and definition of your lips can affect your self-confidence but, using the principles of the “golden ratio” (a fascinating long used mathematical formula of proportion and aesthetic beauty), Dr Sally can skilfully volumise and define your lips whether you want to make a statement with the “perfect pout”, a more defined Cupid’s Bow and philtrum or simply enhancing your natural beauty by having fuller symmetrical lips.
Note – Visage Lips use a more advanced premium product for a longer lasting effect.
“Smoker’s Upper Lip Lines
The small vertical lines above the top lip are also known as ‘smoker’s’ lines. As well as natural ageing, the effects of the sun can also develop and increase the lines around the lips. These lines are more likely to form in smokers due to the repeated pursing of the lips to draw from the cigarette. Smoking also breaks down the production of collagen, which increases the appearance of wrinkles and causes the skin to thin.
By using dermal filler to skilfully inject directly into these lines and provide scaffolding for the upper lip area, we can soften upper lip lines and give a real confidence boost. I use a very small volume of the product injected into precise locations along the lines and lip border. The treatment is done with the lightest of dermal fillers and gives instant results.
We also offer…
Hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating
Excessive sweating can be a really embarrassing and debilitating problem. By using very superficial Botox® injections in the affected area it is the new simple solution to excessive sweating which once would have required surgery. The results last 4-6 months. Under arms are commonly treated but other areas can also be treated so please discuss at your initial appointment.
Migraine is an awful debilitating condition, but there’s now hope with a treatment using specifically placed Botox® injections. Botox® has been approved for treating headaches. It is used to prevent headaches in adults with chronic migraine who have 15 or more days each month with headaches lasting 4 or more hours each day in people 18 years or older.
Note – Please come and have a free consultation and I will always offer discounts for migraine treatments as feel it makes such an incredible impact on people’s lives and I want to help. This is why there is no price allocated to this treatment.
