Dynamic wrinkles and lines can be addressed using a range of treatments which help to reduce their appearance and create a smoother more rejuvenated complexion.
Treatments available include light therapies, dermal fillers and skin peels.
We also have a prescribable range of medical grade treatments which under the guidance of our qualified Aestheticians, can address specific concerns relating to sun damage and ageing.
Dynamic wrinkles can be successfully treated with a protein called Botulinum Toxin (of which BOTOX ® is a trade name). It reversibly weakens the muscles responsible for wrinkles which are lines that appear when you animate your face. Static wrinkles are lines that appear at rest, these do not usually improve with Botulinum Toxin A and may be best treated with Dermal Fillers and Skin Peels.
This botulinum can also be used to treat additional conditions such as migraines and hyperhidrosis (excess sweating).

Depending on the number of areas being treated, most anti-wrinkle injectables can be done within 30 minutes. Results are usually noticeable within 4-7 days, but it can take up to 2 weeks for full results to be visible.
