At Sheffield Aesthetics we offer anti-wrinkle treatments including the areas for Crows feet, Glabellar lines, Forehead lines, Nasolabial folds, Lip wrinkles and enhancement and Marionette lines.
To reduce the signs of ageing we use either Bocouture ® (Botox ®) and/or Belotero ® (Dermal fillers) to create a younger, rejuvenated look. We also use other products such as Juvederm ®
What are the main causes of wrinkles?
As we age, then our face will naturally develop lines as collagen and elastin break down. When this happens the skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles appear. Factors which contribute are over exposure to the sun, alcohol, pollution, smoking, stress and excessive squinting amongst other things.
Combating the aging process.
Botox ® has been used for over 50 years and is classed as a safe product in aesthetics. It softens and smooths fine lines. Deeper lines or wrinkles may need dermal fillers.
Botox® injections are often used to reduce wrinkles in the forehead, Crow`s feet and Laughter lines.
How does Botox ® work?
Botox ® blocks nerve impulses to the muscles. This causes them to relax and reduce the contraction abilities creating a younger looking complexion. Botox ® is a brand name of botulinum toxin type – A.
The product will be injected into the area/area`s to be treated with a fine needle. There is a little discomfort and it will take about 15 – 30 minutes. After about 3-5 days the effects will become apparent and can last up to 3-4 months. Longer in some cases.
No alcohol on the day of the treatment. No hard exercise for 24 hours and avoid tilting your head for a few hours.
Normal painkillers can relieve any discomfort.
Belotero ® is a popular dermal filler that adds volume in the deep folds and wrinkles to create a smoother effect. We use it to redefine the lip contours and increase the fullness of the lips. And to sculpture cheeks, volumising the folds and wrinkles around the mouth and nose as well as the frown lines between the eyebrows and around the eyes.
Belotero ® is biodegradable and in time is naturally broke down over about 6-12 months depending on the individual.
Had both my Botox and Fillers done by Alan. Highly recomended. :)
