Botulinum toxin can be used to treat wrinkles which are the result of normal facial movement. When it is injected into a specific muscle in the face it blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscle. This stops the muscle from moving resulting in less wrinkling of the skin in the areas treated. At City Skin Clinic, we use Botox® as it is the brand of botulinum toxin that has been around for longest and has been extensively studied. We use Botox® for anti-wrinkle treatments, hyperhidrosis, as part of our liquid facelift, nonsurgical neck lift, brow lift and jaw slimming.
Juvederm® Ultra is a widely used range of hyaluronic acid fillers manufactured by Allergan. It can be used to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds and restore volume to the skin or to plump up, redefine and enhance lips. The effects are temporary as Juvederm® Ultra is broken down in the skin over time. Juvederm® Ultra contains a built-in anaesthetic which makes the injection process a more comfortable experience. We use Juvederm® Ultra for lip enhancement, filling wrinkles and chin, nose and cheek contouring.
Teosyal® is another popular range of hyaluronic acid fillers developed in Switzerland by Teoxane laboratories which also contain local anaesthetic to numb the area. They can be used to in a number of areas including the mouth, lips, cheeks, chin and wrinkles. We use Tesoyal most often to increase facial volume and inject very deep lines when in depth filling is required.
