Botox is the most commonly known brand of botulinum toxin and the one Dr.Fiona uses in her clinic as she feel it delivers the best and most consistent results for her patients. Botox is injected directly into the muscle and acts by blocking the signal between the nerve and the muscle, preventing the muscle from contracting.
Dermal fillers are a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. As we age, we lose our natural hyaluronic acid supplies and as a result, our skin becomes less hydrated, less plump and less firm. Dermal fillers can mimic the role of this naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, restoring volume and hydration.
Profhilo is a unique injectable treatment that stimulates collagen synthesis and targets skin laxity as well as boosting the appearance of dull and lifeless skin. It also stimulates increased production of the body’s own hyaluronic acid (HA ) and elastin.
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure where a series of superfine injections of vitamins, minerals and amino acids cocktails are delivered into the mesodermal layer of the skin. This infusion nourishes and rejuvenates the skin while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, both essential for skin’s natural elasticity.
