FAQ's

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium in controlled laboratory conditions. It is used to cosmetically reduce wrinkles and is given in extremely small therapeutic doses. It was originally used for the treatment of blepharospasm (eye spasms) and various muscle spasm conditions (dystonias).

How does Botox work?

Crows’ feet and frown lines form over time as a result of muscle activity or contraction. Botox works to block the release of acetylcholine between nerve fibres and injected muscles. After using Botox, the muscle does not receive the message to contract and because this signal is blocked, muscle spasms or movements that cause wrinkling are greatly reduced.

Where can Botox be applied?

Botox can be applied to most areas of the face where wrinkles are prominent. Common areas include the forehead and around the eyes (crow's feet).

How quickly will you see results?

Results usually appear within two to three days. Your skin will appear smoother and lines will continue to improve or diminish. The results last three to four months. Regular treatments are required to maintain a wrinkle-free look.

How long will the procedure take?

Usually about 30 minutes for each area of the face.

Does the procedure hurt?

The area is usually numbed with an anaesthetic cream prior to injection and since the needle is thin, discomfort is minimal.

What side effects will I experience?

You may experience some localised pain, inflammation, tenderness, redness and or bleeding/bruising at the injection site. Our doctors are experienced in giving injections when administering local anaesthetic on a regular basis, so their technique is very refined.

 

Why Dermal Fillers?

As your skin ages, the hyaluronic acid and natural collagen it contains slowly disappear. As a result, your skin's structure tends to become loose and appears to sag. Skin procedures with hyaluronic acid and collagen can be used to eliminate frown lines, wrinkles and creases on your face. They can even be used to reshape your lips, giving them a plumper appearance.

Fillers are excellent treatment for:

  • Erasing wrinkles
  • Smile lines
  • Deep creases
  • Increasing lip volume

Fillers have swiftly become one of the most desired procedures for men and women of all ages. They can be applied to the lips to give a fuller, more rounded pout, which has proven to be extremely popular with the younger generation.

What are fillers?

Fillers are long lasting gels injected into skin creases or lines, where they lift and add volume. Similar to one of the body's own natural substances (hyaluronic acid), fillers are a completely safe treatment.

How long will it last?

Depending on factors such as age and lifestyle, structure of the skin, and degree of perfection required, fillers can last for between 9 and 12 months. Most patients choose to have further treatment within a year, since hyaluronic acid, being a natural substance, dissolves over time. This treatment is quick with results that are almost immediate and extremely effective. As hyaluronic acid (one of the main components of the product) occurs naturally in the body, no “patch test” is required, and treatment can commence immediately after consultation with instantaneous results.

Lovely skin begins with a wholesome diet, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, ageing is unavoidable and together with added factors such as smoking, stress, unhealthy diet and sun exposure, the skin loses its beauty and becomes damaged. By combining the finest non-surgical interventions and state-of-the-art skincare technology, we strive to enhance your skin's natural appearance by getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines, and ensuring more youthful, healthier and beautiful looking skin.


Why Lip Enhancement?

Do you want plumper, fuller lips? Teosyal Kiss can give your lips a soft, lush appearance or a fuller pout. Teosyal Kiss contours your lips using a material that occurs naturally in the body. Lip injections frequently lead to inflammation but this usually settles down on its own after a few days, requiring no special care. This treatment usually lasts up to six months.
