BOTOX® is our number one gold standard treatment for wrinkles. I use it to smooth out the complexion and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lift brows, reduce sweating, to stop squinting/twitching, relieve headaches and migraines.
Whether you have done BOTOX® before or are dipping into it for the first time, consider these your words to live by. I like to call them The BOTOX® Commandments…
BOTOX® is booming.
Whilst there are many different reasons as to why someone might want to try BOTOX® – it could be medicinal (to treat chronic migraines or excessive sweating), or it could be more cosmetic (to smooth out the complexion and reduce the appearance of wrinkles).
Do keep an open mind when it comes to areas…
People think less is more and often request one or two areas however this can lead to an imbalance with other areas overcompensating. In my professional opinion, it is generally best to treat lines and wrinkles with BOTOX® in three areas to keep balanced.
Do Be Patient…
Results can take up to two weeks to be fully visible (although more often than not it takes around five days to settle in), so don’t rush back to your aesthetician if you don’t see any noticeable results immediately.
Don’t Rush Back…
BOTOX® top-up treatments should be reviewed every three to four months.

3. Chemical peels
Chemical peels can remove age spots, acnes scars and some wrinkles. As the smoother skin underneath heals and grows your skin looks younger. Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths and types, I recommend a course of 6 weekly initially followed by monthly maintenance.
Exilis® elite uses radio frequency to gently heat the dermis and stimulating new collagen in this layer. Reducing wrinkles with a firmer, tighter appearance to the skin. For best results, consider intense 6 week course followed by monthly maintenance.
