What is Botulin Toxin (Botox)?
Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox) is a naturally occurring protein from bacteria. Small
purified quantities can be placed under the skin in order to relax the muscles of the
face and reduce the movements that cause wrinkles.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin which helps to provide
fullness and elasticity. Over time the skin loses hyaluronic acid and skin volume can
diminish increasing the chance of folds and wrinkles appearing. Dermal fillers can be
safely placed under the skin to replace this lost hyaluronic acid and visibly reduce
lines and folds.
Can anyone have these treatments?
Facial Aesthetics can be provided for the vast majority of people with a few exceptions:
- Pregnant and nursing mothers
- People on certain medication types
- Those who have an increased risk of bleeding or bruising
- Individuals who suffer from severe allergies, especially facial aesthetics products
- If you have a specific complex medical history
Here at Dr Jandu, we will always thoroughly assess our clients to ensure any proposed treatment is
safe and appropriate via pre-operative checks.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment lengths depend on the number of sites worked on and appointment times typically start
from 30mins. A bespoke treatment plan will be provided for all our clients with an idea of timings
and the recommended order of treatment for a natural end result. Review appointments are included
in our price plans to ensure that we can assess your treatment outcome and make sure you are happy
with our service.
Does it hurt?
Facial aesthetics procedures are non-clinical and therefore minimally invasive. We use a very fine
needle for gentle administration of the chosen product and anaesthetic techniques are used as
needed for increased comfort. Our highly trained clinicians have decades of combined experience
working with patients to ensure that your visit is as pain-free as possible.
How long will the results last?
Results usually last between 4-6 months and this can vary from person to person. An idea of
treatment time will be provided as part of your bespoke facial aesthetic plan at the assessment stage.
