Injectable Anti-Wrinkle Treatments - BOTOX®
Available at Carl Hillwood, Fordingbridge
Anti-wrinkle injections use a small amount of a naturally occurring substance called Botulinum Toxin A (Botox) to relax the facial muscles and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Administered in small quantities, to selected muscles, it can also prevent new lines from forming. Botox is usually used in the upper half of the face – to smooth the frown, soften the lines between the eyes and eliminate crow’s feet.
This is a popular, simple and effective treatment.
The results are usually visible within a couple of days and you can expect them to last around three to five months.
Dr Joanna Lovatt will focus on creating natural results that make the face appear fresh and revived – people might notice that you look “well” rather than different. The early days of the “surprised” botox look are long gone!
Juvéderm® Ultra Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are injections of a smooth gel into the skin that can lift and erase lines and wrinkles. They can be used to contour the face and also to create volume where it is needed most.
Fillers are a minimally invasive procedure that can achieve a soft and natural look.
Most commonly used around the nose and mouth to fill out the lines that naturally develop as we age and the skin loses it’s elasticity, dermal fillers can also be used in the lips to restore shape and definition.
Results are visible immediately and usually last around 6-9 months.
