In this procedure toxins (neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium) are injected into the skin which block signals from the nerves to the muscles. This causes temporary relaxation of the muscles. In facial and neck muscles this helps to smoothen the lines caused by muscular activity and to contour the lower face and neck. However, static facial lines such as those caused by sun damage or volume loss, will not respond to this.
These injections are made simple and almost painless using very fine needles. You should start seeing improvements in 2 to 3 days; however, the full effects can take up to 30 days. The benefits of the treatment can last between 4-6 months. Shorter duration of effects may be observed in some, due to resistance to the toxin.
You will get a free follow up appointment 2-4 weeks after your treatment for any top ups if necessary. Toxin treatments are popular with men as well as women. In fact, the popularity seems to be rising in men!

-Eyes (Crows Feet)
-Forehead & Frown lines

Fillers are generally used to improve volume and help in contouring the face. They can also enhance the hydration of the skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component of the skin which helps to maintain its smoothness and elasticity. It is hydrophilic (absorbs water) and hence intensifies the moisturising effect and the suppleness of the skin.
The choice of filler used will depend upon the area being treated and what you are wanting to achieve.
Dermal fillers are used to enhance the hydration of the skin and maintain its smoothness and elasticity. This is a relatively quick treatment that can be performed with or without a local anesthetic/numbing cream. They can also be used to replace lost fat and plump out areas that have come to look somewhat gaunt e.g. cheeks and hollow temples. A client can have fillers to fill and change the shape of their lips, chin, jaw or their nose.
Lip Fillers can create fuller lips and correct droopy corners of the mouth. It is tailored to meet your expectation be it subtle or a more voluptuous effect. This is a quick procedure and can be performed with or without local anaesthetic/numbing cream. The results are usually instant. There could be some initial swelling which settles very quickly after treatment.

Deso fat dissolving injection
The next generation of injectable Deoxycholic Acid ‘fat dissolvers’ in the UK.
DESO Body/Face are state-of-the-art fat dissolving injectable products designed to treat those difficult localised pockets of fat. Areas that can be treated include a ‘double’ chin, the arms, abdomen, flanks, buttocks, inner knees, thighs and back or bra ‘rolls’. Depending on the area treated and the amount of fat involved, several sessions may be required to achieve the desired result.
When treating the body localised fat is reduced and skin firmness is improved. When treating the face, drainage of excess fluids takes place as well as reduced localised fat amounts.
What is Deoxycholic Acid?
Deoxycholic acid normally emulsifies and solubilises dietary fats in the intestine, and when injected subcutaneously, it disrupts and destroys fat cells in that tissue making it the perfect agent to remove stubborn pockets of fat.
Side Effects & Complications
Serious risks of DESO treatment are extremely small, but these include redness, pain, irritation, allergic reaction, pigmentation, tissue necrosis (very rare) and temporary nodules. There are special aftercare instructions you would have to adhere to and the drainage of the treated fat cells can be improved by adding other therapies

The benefits of Vitamin C have been well known for centuries. Explorers on the high seas brought citrus fruits to prevent scurvy on long journeys, and today Vitamin C is used to treat colds, boost immune systems, encourage collagen growth, lower hypertension, and even guard against heart disease.
INSTANT ABSORPTION OF VITAMIN C WITH INJECTION
Oral vitamin supplements have to go through the long process of digestion before they’re absorbed into the bloodstream. Vitamin C injections, on the other hand, deliver the dosage directly into your bloodstream. Additionally, your body absorbs the full amount of Vitamin C injected, unlike supplements, which, after digestion, only deliver a portion of the dose they originally contained.
One Injection - £40
Biotin Injection: Most people get the required amount of biotin from eating a healthy diet, but some have a biotin deficiency, resulting in brittle hair or hair loss. A biotin injection can therefore help increase the body’s biotin levels to boost hair strength and growth.
Biotin is one of the B complex vitamins that helps the body convert nutrients into energy. This improves the health of your hair, skin, and nails. Biotin is also known as vitamin H and is a water-soluble vitamin. It specifically keeps your hair, skin, eyes, liver, and nervous system healthy. Biotin is also important in helping the body break down fat and metabolizes carbohydrates and amino acids.

Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) rejuvenation – PRP has been used in wound healing in many specialities of medicine. Plasma extracted from your blood contains cells called platelets that produce growth factors which help wound healing. When PRP is injected into the skin, it stimulates new collagen production and enhances your cells to regenerate making it an anti-ageing treatment. It can be used in combination with a Derma roller™ or mixed with Dermal fillers, vitamins and antioxidants for a more superior result. It can be used everywhere on the body- hair loss, face, neck, décolletage, knees, elbows, stretch marks, wounds and scars.
The procedure – A small amount of blood is drawn from the arm and placed in a centrifuge. The spinning of this blood separates the red cells from the plasma which is rich in platelets. This plasma is then extracted and injected back into the desired area. As this uses client’s own blood product and is performed under sterile conditions there is only very minimal risk of allergic reactions or complications, short term or long term.
The results – There could be mild swelling initially. The smoothness of the skin and change in pigmentation are seen noticeable within a month. Over the next few months the platelets release the growth factors stimulating collagen growth which can take up to 3 months. Response varies between individuals but most conditions will need up to three sessions at least 4-6 weeks apart. However, there is no limit to the number of sessions you can have. Regular top ups can maintain the results for longer.
The whole procedure can take 30 -45 minutes.
Single Session £400
Course of three £950
