This treatment is completed within a single session. It consists of injecting small doses in previously marked locations with the use of a very fine needle. Any possible adverse effects are minimised in this way, and the points of treatment selected vary from patient to patient. They offer a relaxed appearance and counter the formation of wrinkles without the loss of expression.
The effects are noticed within three or four days of treatment and are consolidated within the first two weeks. During this period wrinkles begin to disappear as a result of the relaxation of the underlying muscles, at which point we will review progress and possibly add some final touches.
Backed by over 10 years of experience, Dr Carmen Murias utilises the benefits of Neurotoxins for treating multiple issues. These include:
- Facial harmony
- Gummy smile
This treatment usually takes just a few minutes. The filler is injected into the skin with a very fine needle or cannula and in the majority of cases the improvement is visible immediately. Fillers can be applied to several areas on the face to redefine contours and restore lost volume with noticeable yet natural-looking results. The degree of impact depends upon the depth of the wrinkle or the loss of volume under treatment. It’s a successful technique widely used in restoring firmness in the skin tissue and facial contour, an issue that affects both men and women. Some mild bruising, redness, temporary tenderness and itching at the injection site may occur, but these reactions are generally mild to moderate, and usually resolve themselves naturally within a few days. These fillers are non-permanent and will naturally break down over time.
Age wears down the elasticity of the skin, especially if combined with habits such as smoking or drinking alcohol. As an alternative to more traditional dermal fillers, Profhilo treatment will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin through a series of careful hyaluronic acid injections. Treatment is quick and comfortable, resulting in improved skin quality, skin hydration and endogenous hyaluronic acid and elastin production. Profhilo treatment is comfortable and improves skin quality, hydration and increase the endogenous hyaluronic acid and elastin production. Treatment are divided in two sessions separated for 1 month and should be repeated every 6-8 months.
Medical Peeling is a non-surgical treatment that works with immediate effect to rejuvenate the skin and regenerates the dermal matrix of several layers deep. It serves to eliminate marks on the face, diminish wrinkles and scars left by acne, hydrating and regenerating your facial aspect. This exfoliation replaces damaged outer layers with new cells, giving you a younger and fresher appearance. The result is a skin that looks and feels clearer as well as more luminous, elastic and taut. Anyone who wishes to enhance their appearance from the age of 20 onwards will benefit from a medical facial peeling. This is especially true of women with skin blemishes and graininess, as well as acne stains. Medical Peeling is also highly effective in removing small wrinkles and crow’s feet. The treatment results in skin rejuvenation and a younger looking face, and should be considered if you have been exposed to the sun for long periods of time, a situation that leads to photo-ageing, where the drying of the skin speeds up the development of deep wrinkles and facial creases, sun stains and thickening.
In addition, medical peeling is also used in the effective treatment of Hyperchromia (skin blemishes), keratosis, stretch marks and scars.
The most common areas treated in this way are:
- The face
- Neck and neckline
- Backs of the hands
With the procedure being incredibly quick, skin peels are recommended for treating those suffering from acne, sun damage and hyperpigmentation. The procedure applies ZO MEDICAL enzymes to the skin, which remove the build-up of the dead skin cells that make us look tired and older. Patients will usually feel a slight burning sensation around the treated area, whilst flaking may occur for up to five days post-treatment depending on the strength of the enzymes. Peels reveal new, healthier, glowing skin; and promote collagen production to tighten and smooth out the treated area. You’ll notice less lines and wrinkles, with your face feeling firmer with more defined features. You’ll definitely be asked what your secret is!
When the skin is damaged, collagen is produced to restore the affected cells. The Dermapen procedure will create hundreds of very small indents in the surface of the skin, through the use of a carefully designed automated microneedling pen. This will send the skin into ‘repair mode’, where it will produce high levels of collagen to produce new cells, harnessing the power of the body’s natural innate ability to repair the skin. It’s a recommended treatment for issues such as enlarged pores, stretch marks, adult acne, and even hair loss. When applied on a large scale, such as on the face, the post-treatment results are truly breath-taking. This method uses a system of controlled micro needles to create micro-punctures that generate a series of miniature channels in the skin. These form the conduits through which vitamins and hyaluronic acid are introduced to promote the creation of collagen and elastin, as well as essential fibres in the skin. They help to improve the quality of the skin around the eyes. This treatment consists of micro-injections designed to stimulate the development of collagen and elastin, prevent ageing, and improve pores and scarring, and the overall aspect of your skin. Gets rid of all those small wrinkles around the eyes, neck and neckline, as well as any scar tissue resulting from acne. Improves the general quality and aspect of the skin. A typical Dermapen treatment consists of a series of 4 to 6 sessions over the space of three to six months, with each Dermapen treatment is performed four to five weeks apart.
A thread lift treatment is a simple yet effective way to treat areas of the skin where injectables, such as dermal fillers, would not be able to yield the same results. The aim of thread lifting is to instantly firm skin that has become saggy and loose due to a combination of aging, gravity, and genetic predisposition, as well as to stimulate the production of new collagen. The procedure involves an area plan being mapped out on the skin in the way of direction vectors. This targets the direction of the threads, allowing for more accurate results. This area is then thoroughly disinfected before anaesthetic cream is applied to minimise any discomfort to the skin. Following this, the threads, which consist of polydioxanone (PDO), a biocompatible ingredient that dissolves in the body; are inserted under the skin at various points along the face. This will in turn will also stimulate collagen production, which is a vital ingredient in the building blocks of skin cells. Following the thread lift, the skin will instantly appear and feel firmer, with many previous lines and wrinkles being eradicated and smoothed out in the process. The results are more natural, without any visibly radical changes and last for around 2 years. This treatment is perfect for treating those hard to reach quickly with genuinely no recovery time; most patients return to their day once following the procedure!
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a component of the blood that is vital for skin healing, growth and collagen production. Also known as the ‘Vampire Facelift’, this treatment involves a small sample of blood being extracted from your body. This sample is then spun to separate the PRP from the red blood cells. The rich concentrate of plasma is then reinjected into the skin, bringing evenness to skin tone and texture, alongside eradication of lines and wrinkles. Results typically take up to three weeks to appear, however they’re worth the wait!
A Vampire Facelift is considered completely safe, with zero chance of reaction, or synthetic substances being applied. However, you may experience slight swelling and redness in the treated areas post procedure. Areas that benefit from this treatment include lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, blemishes, scars or any area that needs to be tightened. This treatment can be used alone or used in conjunction with Mesotherapy or microneedling to bolster results.
Please note that this treatment will not be carried out until your full medical history and lifestyle have been analysed, as this treatment is not recommended for those with blood disorders, platelet abnormalities, or for smokers.
Hyperhidrosis, overwise known as excessive sweating, is caused when the sweat glands are overactive. This can be an embarrassing problem, but can be treated in a number of ways, depending on the cause. When Neurotoxins are injected into the affected areas, it paralyzes the overactive sweat glands and blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that produce sweat. The procedure commonly targets the hands and underarm areas; and usually takes no longer than 20 minutes. The results last for as long as 6 months, so you can enjoy a sweat-free summer!
Bruxism, which is also known as the involuntary habit of teeth grinding, can be a very severe issue in the long term. It damages teeth, and often causes headaches and muscle tension in the cervical area. When the Botulinum Toxin A is injected into the masseter muscle, the muscle responsible for Bruxism, it greatly reduces its size. This will reduce the pressure the oversized muscle exerts on the teeth. The results can take 2 – 4 weeks to appear, and usually last for 6 months; so, you and your teeth can sleep in peace! As a consequence, it will produce face slimming due to the Masseter muscle relaxing.
Migraines and tension headaches can have a detrimental effect to a person’s life; hiding them away from work, a social life and the ability to function in certain cases. Although the causes of migraines are not fully understood, by injecting the Botulinum Toxin, relief can be achieved due to its muscle–relaxant effect. Unlike the typical use of triptans or aspirin for relief, the use of Botulinum Toxin comes with no unwanted side-effects. So, you can continue your life with no worry of oncoming pain.
Dr Carmen Murias utilizes Botulinum toxin A to address the expression lines in the face and neck.
By reducing the lifting action of the muscle, through which the upper lip is raised less, and the gums are not as exposed when you smile.
