Face and lip treatments
Our face and lip treatments come without the risks associated with surgery or other invasive procedures. We offer the following treatments – click on each link to learn more:
- Skin smoothing – for frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crows’ feet around the eyes and eyebrow shaping.
- Restylane for face – also for frown lines, wrinkles and crows’ feet, and for nose-to-mouth lines and lip lines.
- Restylane for lips – smile lines, smokers’ lines and ‘sad mouth’ (downturned corners of the mouth).
What do the treatments involve?
Our products contain hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. This is injected into the skin to lift the wrinkle, fold or lip, and create volume. Some patients like the added comfort of an anaesthetic cream.
Our face and lip treatments last twice as long as standard collagen implant treatments. Depending on the area treated, one treatment is usually enough. Since no pre-test is needed, the procedure is usually completed in less than an hour. The benefit can last up to six months or longer, after which treatment may be repeated if desired.
Normal activities can be resumed immediately after treatment. There may be slight swelling lasting a few hours, or sometimes faint bruising that is easily covered with make-up. If the lips are treated, any initial swelling and tenderness will subside after two or three days.
