A safe and harmless toxin called Botulinum is injected into selected muscles. This toxin blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines.
Our aim is to achieve a natural look, which enhances the natural contours of your face. Many first-time clients have concerns about looking “frozen”. However, an in-depth consultation will ensure that our treatment will always match your desired outcome. Calculated doses are administered to ensure that a natural and subtle look is achieved. Anti-wrinkle treatment takes effect between 2-14 days, so you will be invited to attend a review appointment 2 weeks after the initial treatment. This is to ensure you are totally happy with the treatment. If any top up treatment is required, this is provided free of charge.
At Maidstone Aesthetics, we use Botox for anti-wrinkle treatment. Manufactured by Allergan, Botox is an injectable muscle relaxer which consists of botulinum toxin type A, primarily OnabotulinumtoxinA. In 2002, The FDA approved Botox for cosmetic procedures. Clinical studies have shown Botox to be simple, effective and safe, making it the most popular cosmetic procedure in the USA. If you too, would like to effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles on your face, Botox is the go-to product.
Treatments last between 3-6 months. Many of our clients have treatments of just 2 or 3 times a year. Contrary to many beliefs, we have found that over the years, our clients have needed less treatments not more, to achieve their desired look.
The Botulinum toxin in Botox can also be used to treat other issues you may have including excess sweating (hyperhidrosis), gummy smiles and teeth grinding (Bruxism). Find out more about anti-wrinkle treatment and lip fillers in Kent, by getting in touch with us at Maidstone Aesthetics.
Dermal fillers are aesthetic hyaluronic acid treatments that are injected into the skin. This can be anywhere on the face including around the eye, cheeks and jawline. Lip fillers are administered directly into the lip. Fillers work by restoring the volume that is lost as bodies age, which is normally down to our bodies stopping the production of collagen and elastin. Dermal filler and lip filler treatment at our clinic in Kent, is very quick and relatively painless.
Fillers are specifically designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour the face and create volume. By boosting your skin with the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the area instantly. If you want plumper lips, a fuller face or smooth skin, dermal fillers are ideal. You should also be able to see the results of treatment the very same day.
We use the Juvéderm range of dermal fillers. The Juvéderm range has been stringently tested and will give you noticeable results in a safe and painless way.
How long dermal fillers last, all depends on where they are injected and at what volume. When the hyaluronic acid breaks down and dissipates into the body, this is when the effects will fade. Broadly speaking, fillers can last anywhere between 6 to 24 months.
