Wrinkle Relaxing Injections

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that relaxes muscles and reduces excessive secretions of the sweat glands (hyperhidrosis). Botulinum toxin injections can be a simple and low-impact treatment for reducing   facial wrinkles and signs of ageing.

Cosmetic use of Botulinum toxin   is effective for relaxing vertical wrinkles between eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, smoker’s lip lines, bunny lines, crow’s feet and fallen corners of the mouth. Side effects are rare and temporal.
The wrinkle relaxing effect is noticeable   after 3 to 5 days with maximal effect in 2 weeks time. Some clients may need to come back for a ‘top-up’ if desired effect is not achieved.
The effect of botulinum toxin is temporal and lasts approximately 3 to 4 months. Once the effect is gradually worn off over the period of several months, your wrinkles will return to the condition in which they were before treatment.  Botulinum toxin injections for excessive underarm sweating may last for 4 to 6 months.  There are a wide variety of treatments for reducing the lines of the face and neck to create a smoother more youthful look.
Botulinum Toxin may be an effective treatment for some patients, and you can learn more about this prescription-only medication by scheduling a consultation with our aesthetic nurse Olena.
Botulinum toxin is contraindicated in pregnant or nursing women.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are gel based products that are used to treat depressions on the skin, such as wrinkles, folds, hollows as well as to remodel facial features to achieve symmetry, give that ‘angle’ or simply  to enhance certain features. Dermal filler such as Juvederm, Belotero, Teosyal PureSence and Restylane is a specially formulated synthetic  hyaluronic acid (HA) gel.

It’s a natural, biodegradable gel that flows easily and smoothly into the skin, instantly filling out depressions, contours and the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, or folds; the dermal filler products can also be used to enhance the shape and appearance of the lips, cheek augmentation, non-surgical nose remodelling, scars filling, tear through, hands rejuvenation and overall large-scale facial remodelling (beautification/male features enhancement).

An injectable implant such as Radiesse or Ellanse combines the benefits of both immediate correction of folds and wrinkles as well as stimulating the generation of the body’s own natural collagen with longer-lasting results.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy for cellulite and fat reduction – lipolysis

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment that Olena offers for the rejuvenation of the skin, brightening and firming of the skin, hair loss, drainage and lipolysis.

Mesotherapy employs multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homoeopathic solutions to the various layers of skin and subcutaneous adipose tissue with a high concentration of plant extracts, vitamins, amino acids, co-enzymes, nano peptides, hyaluronic acid and other lipolytic substances.

The cocktails are tailor-made for an individual client’s needs whether to stimulate hair growth, tighten the skin or to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. Mesotherapy is among the effective methods for rejuvenation of the face, neck, decolletage and the back of the hands.

The curative and stimulating ingredients in the injected solution encourage the body’s production of collagen, repair and growth of new cells as well as tighten the skin creating a more youthful, firmer and brighter complexion.

Mesotherapy injections for fat reduction allegedly target adipose fat cells, by inducing lipolysis, drainage and firming of the skin by causing rupture and cell death among adipocytes and regenerating skin cells.

Local or topical anaesthesia is applied to minimise discomfort of multiple injections prior procedure and minimal swelling, redness, bruising are expected post-procedure and are part of regeneration, healing and lipolysis.

Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment

Platelets rich plasma is prepared from one to a few tubes of the client’s own blood with strict aseptic technique.

After being centrifuged the PRP is separated and activated platelets are injected into the tissue, releasing growth factors that recruit and increase the proliferation of reparative cells, stimulate collagen production and encourage skin regeneration.

Research shows that platelets obtained from the patient’s own blood are safe and there is no risk of disease transmission or risk of rejection.

The use of PRP plays a key role in the process of wound and soft tissue healing in many medical settings for a number of decades. Platelet-rich plasma is injected to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints and can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems.

In aesthetics, PRP is used for anti-ageing treatments. As the collagen regenerates over the following 3 months the improvement of skin texture and tone are noticeable within 3 weeks.

The client may only need one session every 6 months to maintain a youthful appearance or every 3 months as a part of an active anti-ageing program.

PRP treatment can be combined with Dermal fillers, vitamins and anti-oxidants for a more superior result. It can be used everywhere on the body. It has shown excellent results in hair loss, face, neck, décolleté regeneration and lifting, stretch marks, wounds and scars healing.

Following the injections of PRP, there may be mild swelling, bruising and redness for the next 12-24 hours. Bruising that may occur at the needle site could be visible for a few days and can be covered with a concealer.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are a quick and simple technique to achieve a ‘one-off’ radiant skin complexion for a special occasion or as a series of treatment to reverse or lessen the effects or acne, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, pigmentation and scarring skin conditions.

Different types of chemical peel solutions simply react with the top to deeper layers of the skin causing it to peel away. The healing process, following the peel, in turn, increases cell growth and stimulates the skin to produce more collagen leading to healthier skin layers and more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Mild peels such as Glycolic and Mandelic remove the very top layer of the skin (the epidermis) and instantly lighten pigmentation, dry out acne, reduce shallow wrinkles and give a glowing and radiant look.

Moderate to deep peels such as Jessner and TCA result in a more dramatic rejuvenated appearance by removing layers of damaged and scarred skin, lighten hyperpigmentation and improving the overall appearance and tightness of sun-damaged, acne-prone, ageing skin.

During the application of the peel, a client may experience a warm, tingling or a burning sting sensation and skin may appear red, white and frosted once the procedure is finished. Following few days post peel the skin can become very dry, tight and somewhat uncomfortable.

The client may experience mild stinging, swelling and redness, mild crusting and finally peeling and skin can become very dry, tight and somewhat uncomfortable. This discomfort could be managed with mild analgesia and rich moisturising cream recommended by your practitioner.

It is generally recommended not to plan major event for a few weeks following the peel.

PDO (polydioxanone) thread lifting

Treads are made of a material which has been used in plastic surgery for more than 30 years and excels in their high tractive force, smooth penetration through the tissues and great durability. The practitioner implants the threads into the skin with a needle to create a lifting effect. After threads are in place, creation of new connective tissue and collagen fibres is activated. This reaction results in firming, lifting, brightening and reduction of wrinkles in the treated area.

Treatment with PDO threads can be used not only for smoothing of wrinkles and firming of the sagging facial skin, but also almost anywhere in the body, such as in the areas of the neck, breasts, buttocks, abdomen, knees, inner thighs and arms.

‘ I see the excellent lifting and firming results after just one treatment that may last for up 9 to 12 months. Clients do not have to worry about any scars, visible fibers and see it as a part of a safe and simple procedure with long term effect compare to face lift’ Olena, the aesthetic practitioner, summarises the reasons for offering PDO thread lifting treatment.

In combination with Botulinum toxin A wrinkle relaxing injections and volumising dermal fillers, the clients may achieve the optimal regeneration and youthful appearance without going under general anaesthesia and long recovery period.

After the application of local anaesthetic cream, the procedure only takes 30 minutes with a minimal recovery period and aftercare.

Intravenous infusion (detox, re-hydration, well-being)

Due to work stress, tiredness, recurrent infections, poor quality fruit and vegetables, the diet of fast food and other factors  we may lack essential nutrients that may lead to premature aging, poor quality of life, susceptibility to infections and depression. 

Vitamins, minerals and amino acids infusions are being used for a wide variety of health concerns in NHS settings. Conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines, eating disorders, long term chronic illnesses, withdrawal syndromes from drug and alcohol misuse, digestive disorders have responded positively to the Vitamin and Minerals cocktail treatment. In private salon/clinic settings many people are also using IV vitamin therapy for quick re-hydration after an intense sporting event, such as running a marathon, surgery, parturition, to cure a hangover, or for improved skin clarity.

IV therapy is essential to clients who aren’t able to eat enough nutritious food, or who have an illness that interferes with nutrient absorption such as coeliac disease, IBS or colostomy.

IV infusion may also be useful in correcting dehydration after extreme exercise, drugs or alcohol intake, boosting the immune system,  increasing energy levels, reducing nausea. However, it’s important to note that most people are able to get enough of these nutrients from a balanced diet, and the long term usage of IV vitamin drips is not recommended.

For an infusion, vitamins, minerals, amino acids or specifically tailored cocktails are added to a solution containing the same salt concentration as your blood to aid absorption and  delivered directly to the target organs and cells by blood circulation. There may be some bruising to injection site. The procedure takes 20 to 30 minutes to administer.

Possible Risks and Complications

Intravenous detoxification is a safe, standard procedure and performed by trained nurse practitioner. Risks and complications are rare, but a small percentage of patients may experience swelling, burning sensation, discomfort or cooling sensation. Phlebitis (the inflammation) of veins caused by trauma during IV insertion, bruising to injection site may also occur.

Electrolysis for skin disorders/blemishes

Electrolysis is a specialised treatment using an electrical current and just the very tip of the finest needle, to remove unwanted skin blemishes with no mark left on the skin. There may mild swelling, redness and scabbing following the treatment that can be soothed by using aloe vera cream or gel.

Skin tags are harmless, non-infective little overgrowths of normal skin which can be unsightly and catch on things. Often you may find a skin tag on one’s neck, eyelids, in the armpits, chest and groin areas. There may be just one or a multiple numbers of tags of various sizes (from 1 to 4 mm) and raised away from the skin on a ‘stalk’. Nose and facial acial thread veins, milia, blood spots (cherry spots), common warts, plane warts, seborrhoeic warts and age spots to name just a few of the 20+ blemishes that can be effectively and successfully treated with Electrolysis.

They can also be removed by administering a tiny amount of local anaesthetic to the area and removing with a surgical blade or by cauterising it with diathermy (electrolysis). A small dressing may be applied afterwards. This procedure may take only 10 to 15 minutes. 

Facial thread veins removal (electrolysis/diathermy)

‘Spider thread veins’or telangiectasia on the  nose and face are small dilated blood vessels that run close to the surface of the skin making visible red, blue or purple wiggly lines. The thread veins are simply dilated, meaning there is no medical problem but can be unsightly and a nuisance. Factors such as exposure to sunlight, rosacea, regular exposure to extreme temperatures, both hot and cold as well as genetic predisposition can trigger the development of thread veins. Pregnancy and menopause hormones may also cause  thread veins and hyper-pigmentation. Both women and men may developing thread veins at some point in their lives as a result of aging and the above mentioned factors. Nose thread veins themselves do not affect circulation or cause long-term health issues.

Electrolysis works by administering an electric current from the needle causing coagulation, this damages the unwanted vessels. The damaged spider veins are then broken down and reabsorbed by the body. The vessels can either seem to disappear instantly or take a few weeks to fade away. 

Results may vary from person to person and a number of sessions may be required to achieve the optimal results.  

 

Scar treatment & improvement (with dermal fillers and PRP)

Scars can be distressing and unsightly, especially when affecting the face. I often see clients who have tried everything including combinations of lasers, peels, retinoids and needling, and still not happy with the results.

When treating scarring, I inject an appropriate dermal filler carefully into the dermis/epidermis underneath atrophic scars. The affected area is filled and the surface contour improved considerably. This can give a client greater confidence and comfort in knowing that the presence of scarring is discreet.

In my practice, I use hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers and/or PRP combined treatment that will normally last from 6 to 12 months which means that the improvement will gradually wear off and procedure needs to be repeated. However, in my experience scars rarely return  to their previous state due to a degree of subscision that occurs  during administration  and effect of PRP, that  stimulate the production of collagen, which naturally promotes healing and regeneration.

It is important to mention that swelling, redness and bruising may occur  at the injection site, as with all injectable procedures, and clients should be aware.
