Derma Plus Aesthetics specialise in advanced dermal fillers, anti wrinkle injections and anti-ageing skin treatments. All our treatments are carried out by highly trained and fully insured medical professionals. We only use the highest quality injectables produced by market-leading manufacturer.
Botox (Botulinum Toxin A) is a neurotoxin, produced by the bacteria Clostridum Botulinum, which is then purified for clinical and cosmetic use.
Unlike dermal filler, it does not fill existing wrinkles instead, it temporarily relaxes the muscles that create the wrinkles. It can take from 3-14 days to take full effect. The anti wrinkle injections will last 3-6 months depending on factors such as your body’s metabolism and tolerance to the toxin. After several treatments some clients find their muscles are used to being relaxed, and so treatment are required less frequently.
The first signs of ageing start around the age of 25. We can prevent wrinkles appearing later in life by temporarily reducing the activity of the muscles that repeatedly contract and cause the skin to crease and fold.
Anti wrinkle treatments work best on fine lines and wrinkles. They usually appear in your mid 30s as dynamic lines begin to persist regardless of expression. Once deep static lines appear a different treatment such as dermal fillers may be more effective. If you are unsure which treatment is best for you contact us for a consultation.
Our anti-wrinkle treatments are minimally invasive. Numbing cream can be applied beforehand but it is not usually required. With all our anti-wrinkle treatments we aim to smoothen out fine lines and eliminate wrinkles without leaving your face completely frozen and expressionless.
FROWN LINES (GLABELLAR)
Frown lines are the vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows caused by repeated frowning. This procedure consists of five injections in total; one into the procerus muscle and four in the corrugator muscles.
This procedure consists of four to six injections higher up the forehead into the frontalis muscle to soften dynamic lines and wrinkles to produce a rejuvenated look.
CROW’S FEET (ORBICULARIS OCULI)
Crow’s feet are fine lines that appear in the corner of the eyes from years of squinting and smiling. The procedure consists of three injections into the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This process is repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye. We always inject away from the eye and key blood vessels to prevent complications.
Achieving a brow lift using botulinum toxin requires a detailed understanding of facial anatomy. By relaxing muscles that depress the brow, we cause the brow to rest in a lifted position.
BUNNY LINES (NASALIS)
Bunny lines are wrinkles that appear either side of the nose. They are caused by repeated facial movements that wrinkle the nose. By injecting either side of the nose we can smoothen out these lines.
CORNERS OF THE MOUTH (DAO)
The depressor anguli oris muscle pulls down the corners of the mouth. By relaxing this muscle we allow the elevator muscles to pull the corners of the mouth up to a neutral position.
SMOKER’S LINES (PERI-ORAL LINES)
Smoker’s lines extend vertically from the outline of the upper lip and are caused by excessive pursing of the lips. Using a series of anti-wrinkle injections we can soften these lines.
CHIN DIMPLING RELAXATION (MENTALIS)
Botulinum Toxin A can be injected into the muscles around the chin to prevent the formation of chin dimples
Botulinum Toxin A can be used to treat a gummy smile. It is injected into the lip elevator muscles to prevent excessive gum (gingival) display.
Botulinum Toxin A can be used to prevent excess sweating. It works by blocking the signals the body sends to the sweat glands to produce sweat. It is injected under the skin and effects will last 3-6 months.
NECK LIFT (PLATYSMAL BANDS)
Due to poor posture and ageing, the neck muscles become tighter and more pronounced. The neck is often over looked, but prominent neck bands and wrinkles can age your appearance immensely. By relaxing these muscles we can achieve an elegant youthful neck
JAWLINE SLIMMING / BRUXISM (MASSETER)
Some clients have over developed masseter muscles from habitually grinding their teeth. This can happen while they sleep without realising. The masseter is like any muscle, with consistent exercise it will grow. This causes a particular problem when clients only chew food or grind their teeth on one side of their face as this can result in asymmetry. By relaxing the masseter muscle we can prevent it from being over worked creating a slim and feminine jawline as well as helping to protect the teeth from grinding away.
