non-surgical facial treatment, botox and dermal fillers

feel and look younger with non-surgical facial treatment, botox and dermal fillers

Everyone knows that regular exercise and a balanced diet are two important ways to help stay healthy, feel well and look good. But nothing can stop time passing and, whether we like it or not, we all grow older and it shows in our faces. Frown lines and wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process, but they can make you look more tired, angry or older than you really are.

The structure of the skin changes with time and it becomes less elastic and flexible. There are fewer fat cells in the lower layers (the dermis) of the skin and it becomes more transparent whilst the oil and sweat glands, which help keep skin supple, become less active. Muscles in the face also begin to sag and the skin becomes creased and folded. Older skin is drier and it renews itself less quickly than younger skin. All these factors affect how facial skin looks.

you deserve to feel good about yourself!

feel and look good and young

One of the most effective ways to improve your appearance and look younger is to smooth out those tell tale lines and wrinkles. We can help you achieve the results you want, using the very latest products and techniques.

To smooth forehead wrinkles or "frown lines", we use a substance called Botulinum Toxin e.g. Botox®, Dysport® or Xeomin®. This has been used safely and effectively for over 25 years. For further information, please look at the Frequently Asked Questions section.

Wrinkle softening is a straightforward procedure so you can even visit us during your lunch hour! We simply use a very fine needle to gently and painlessly inject Botulinum Toxin into the areas where it is needed, so it can get to work smoothing out those lines and wrinkles. It usually takes around 7-14 days to see the full effects of each treatment, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Eyes (Crowsfeet)
To smooth out wrinkles around the eyes, such as 'crows feet' or laughter lines, we also use Botulinum Toxin (Botox®, Dysport® or Xeomin®). Despite being a sensitive area we can treat this region painlessly using advanced techniques.

Lips and mouth creases
One of the most effective ways to feel more confident about your appearance is to enhance the shape and possibly the fullness of your lips. Also, by softening the creases around your mouth corners you can look instantly rejuvenated.

Following application of local anaesthetic in the region we can safely and painlessly artistically inject a special 'gel like' product into the lip borders, lip body and the mouth creases as appropriate. You will be instantly rejuvenated and the effects can last between 6-12 months depending on the product used.

Nose to mouth lines
This area is particularly prone to creasing as we get older. Following application of local anaesthetic in this region we can safely and painlessly inject a special 'gel like' product in the skin to help soften the creasing and instantly rejuvenate you. The effects can last from 6-12 months depending on the product being injected.

faqs - botox injections and dermal fillers

Q: What is Botulinum Toxin?
A: Botulinum Toxin (BTX) has been used for over 25 years and is a type of purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is very safe and is injected directly into facial muscles in very tiny amounts during treatment.

Q: How does it work?
A: Botulinum Toxin (BTX) works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the facial muscles that have been injected. This makes the muscles less active and therefore softens and smoothes the appearance of persistent lines and wrinkles.

Q: How many treaments will I need?
A: In most cases patients can see a real difference after one treatment. This is because Botulinum Toxin (BTX) works gradually, smoothing and softening lines and wrinkles for up to 4 months. Every face is unique of course and we'll advise you on how many treatments you're likely to need and how often, depending on the results you'd like to achieve.

Q: How long does Botulinum Toxin (BTX) work for?
A: The effects of Botulinum Toxin (BTX) often last up to four months, depending on the patient. If you decide to stop treatment, any permanent lines and wrinkles will gradually return.

Q: Is the treatment painful?
A: It is very rare that treatment with Botulinum Toxin (BTX) to be painful. Most patients experience a feeling of slight discomfort if at all during the treatment itself but that's all. Rest assured we will talk you through what to expect before your first injection, so you'll be fully prepared prior to treatment.

Q: I'm worried that I'll end up with a 'Trout Pout'?
A: Rest assured following an extensive assessment we will aim to meet your expectations being mindfull not to over-contour the lips. In this way we avoid over bulking out of this sensitive area.

Q: Can I go back to work after the procedure?
A: With BTX injections at worst you will have a little redness which will subside after a few hours. Following Dermal Filler injections of the mouth area or nose to mouth area you may experience temporary mild bruising and swelling so in fact you may decide not to return to work that day.


allergan hydra fill softline

Healthy looking skin needs moisture, not just at the surface, but at every level. There is a naturally occuring compound in the skin called hyaluronic acid which holds on to water. Skin shape and volume is largely determined by the levels of hyaluronic acid which decreases with age.

One way to treat wrinkles and lines in the face is to inject extra hyarulonic acid to replenish the levels and hydrate the skin. As a result volume and tone are increased and lines are reduced.

Other fillers and treatments for facial lines are available and you should discuss the differences with
Dr. Williams.

Hydra Fill® SoftLine™ and Hydra Fill® SoftLine™ Max contains hyaluronic acid like that found naturally in the skin, no allergy test is required and they are suitable for all skin types.

What happens?

Treatment with Hydra Fill® SoftLine™ can take as little as 15 minutes but may take longer. An anaesthetic cream might be applied to the area to be treated.

Using a very fine needle, Dr. Williams will inject Hydra Fill® SoftLine™ beneath the surface of the skin. Hydra Fill® SoftLine™ Max is injected slightly deeper to treat more severe lines.

After treatment, slight swelling and small red marks may appear but fill fade over the following hours.

The results of the treatment are not permanent but in most cases last for 6 to 9 months so repeat treatment will be required.


Reactions are usually temporary in nature. As with all biodegradable fillers, local inflammatory reactions such as redness and swelling may be accompanied by temporary irritation or pain on application of pressure, after injection. Lumps or nodules may appear at the injection site.

Rare cases of necrosis (localised tissue damage) in the glabella (frown) area, abscesses, granuloma (skin nodules) and hypersensitivity have been recorded after injections of hyarulonic acid.
