Botulinum Toxin Type A
In this procedure toxins (neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium) are injected into the skin which block signals from the nerves to the muscles. This causes temporary relaxation of the muscles. In facial and neck muscles this helps to smoothen the lines caused by muscular activity and to contour the lower face and neck. However, static facial lines such as those caused by sun damage or volume loss, will not respond to this.
These injections are made simple and almost painless using very fine needles. You should start seeing improvements in 2 to 3 days; however, the full effects can take up to 30 days. The benefits of the treatment can last between 4-6 months. Shorter duration of effects may be observed in some, due to resistance to the toxin.
You will get a free follow up appointment 2-4 weeks after your treatment for any top ups if necessary. Toxin treatments are popular with men as well as women. In fact, the popularity seems to be rising in men!
Common areas where toxin injections are used include:
-Eyes (Crows Feet)
-Forehead & Frown lines

(in some cases, your practitioner might recommend using a combination of dermal filler with Botulinum Injections to achieve the best results)
Fillers are generally used to improve volume and help in contouring the face. They can also enhance the hydration of the skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component of the skin which helps to maintain its smoothness and elasticity. It is hydrophilic (absorbs water) and hence intensifies the moisturising effect and the suppleness of the skin.
The choice of filler used will depend upon the area being treated and what you are wanting to achieve.
Dermal fillers are used to enhance the hydration of the skin and maintain its smoothness and elasticity. This is a relatively quick treatment that can be performed with or without a local anesthetic/numbing cream. They can also be used to replace lost fat and plump out areas that have come to look somewhat gaunt e.g. cheeks and hollow temples. A client can have fillers to fill and change the shape of their lips, chin, jaw or their nose.
Lip Fillers can create fuller lips and correct droopy corners of the mouth. It is tailored to meet your expectation be it subtle or a more voluptuous effect. This is a quick procedure and can be performed with or without local anaesthetic/numbing cream. The results are usually instant. There could be some initial swelling which settles very quickly after treatment.

Thread Lift helps to improve the contour by non-surgical lifting of the skin with absorbable PDO threads. It remodels the skin and stimulates the production of collagen which in turn will restore its youthful nature. The effects can last up to 18 months, with improvement beginning to show from week 6 following the procedure. There are various areas this treatment can be used for which include:
Face – The larger threads are very effective in treating jowls and marionette lines of the lower face by tightening the skin and lifting it.
Brow lifts, crow’s feet, smile lines and tear troughs – Small threads can be used where the toxin or filler treatment have not given the desired effects. They can also be used for marionette lines and jowls. Threads can be used alone or in combination with fillers and PRP treatment to enhance the effect.
Neck – Helps to tighten the skin of the neck and improve vertical or horizontal lines. This also can be supplemented with toxin, filler, plasmatherapy, mesotherapy or skin peels.
Arm – Reduce the appearance of ‘wings’ caused by loose skin in the upper arm
The procedure – It can take from 45 minutes to an hour depending on the number of threads used. There is a follow up at week 2 and week 6 week, followed by a 6 months’ check-up.
(Price will vary depending on the desired result and areas being treated)
This involves injecting the skin with hyaluronic acids fortified with vitamins and amino acids to improve the appearance of dehydrated or sun damaged skin. It helps to hydrate the skin and soften the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation. Mesotherapy can also be performed using blood plasma, which is proven to boost the wound healing and collagen formation of the skin. The areas treated include:
-Dark circles around the eyes
-Back of the hand
The procedure – Mesotherapy can be administered by very fine injections or using a Dermaroller™ or Dermapen™. It is usually undertaken as a course of treatment a few weeks apart to give the best results, although there is no limit to the number of treatments. It is usually painless.
One Session £250
Course of three (Recommended) £700
Combination with filler or PRP £500
Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) rejuvenation – PRP has been used in wound healing in many specialities of medicine. Plasma extracted from your blood contains cells called platelets that produce growth factors which help wound healing. When PRP is injected into the skin, it stimulates new collagen production and enhances your cells to regenerate making it an anti-ageing treatment. It can be used in combination with a Derma roller™ or mixed with Dermal fillers, vitamins and antioxidants for a more superior result. It can be used everywhere on the body- hair loss, face, neck, décolletage, knees, elbows, stretch marks, wounds and scars.
The procedure – A small amount of blood is drawn from the arm and placed in a centrifuge. The spinning of this blood separates the red cells from the plasma which is rich in platelets. This plasma is then extracted and injected back into the desired area. As this uses client’s own blood product and is performed under sterile conditions there is only very minimal risk of allergic reactions or complications, short term or long term.
The results – There could be mild swelling initially. The smoothness of the skin and change in pigmentation are seen noticeable within a month. Over the next few months the platelets release the growth factors stimulating collagen growth which can take up to 3 months. Response varies between individuals but most conditions will need up to three sessions at least 4-6 weeks apart. However, there is no limit to the number of sessions you can have. Regular top ups can maintain the results for longer.
The whole procedure can take 30 -45 minutes.
Single Session £400
Course of three £950

Radiofrequency energy has been used successfully for years on the skin to lift firm and tighten. It delivers controlled energy to break up the collagen and stimulate the re-synthesis thus improving the strength and firmness of the tissue. Votiva is a new treatment which uses this principle to deliver radiofrequency energy and thus improve the laxity and strength of the vaginal wall.
Who could benefit from Votiva treatment?
-Women wanting to boost already healthy sexual life
-Low levels of sexual interest
-Low pelvic floor strength or muscle tone
-Low blood flow
-Pain (where other medical causes have been excluded)
