Botulinum toxin injection is used to reduce and relax lines and wrinkles on the face. Facial wrinkles are caused by the repeated contraction of the muscles and, over time, they become more obvious thus giving you the ageing look. We use Botulinum toxin injections to relax the wrinkles and give you a more rested, youthful face.
The treatment takes about 30 minutes depending on how many areas are targeted. In general, it takes 4-10 days to start seeing the effects of the Botox injections and results generally last up to 3 months; however, this differs with each client.
If you undertake repeated Botox treatments, the results from each subsequent session will last slightly longer, as your muscles become used to remaining in a ‘relaxed’ state. Botox is very safe. If you stop having the injections, your wrinkles will gradually go back to how they were prior to your initial treatment. They will not appear in a worse condition than when you began the injections.
During special occasions, like a weddings, Christmas, or summer parties, Botox treatments could be a way to achieve a better look.
If you are new to Botox treatment, then choosing one area, for e.g. the frown line, would give you a taste of what it’s like, so that you can be assured of its efficacy.

Aqualyx is an injection used to treat localised fat, that is cheaper than liposuction. Aqualyx®, developed for the non-surgical reduction of localised fat under the skin, is an injectable, gel-based aqueous solution, which dissolves fat and is biocompatible and biodegradable. It works by dissolving fat cells, which the body will subsequently expel naturally.
The duration of a session will depend on the size of the area being treated.
Treatments can take between 30 - 60 minutes per appointment and you will typically require 2 - 8 sessions, 4 weeks apart. Some people may see significant results after 1 or 2 sessions.
For example, a treatment for fat pockets underneath the neck and chin may require 1 - 3 sessions of 2 - 3 injections, while a treatment for fat pockets on the hips and thighs may require 8 sessions.
The results of an AQUALYX treatment are permanent as far as you don`t gain weight. Once the freed fatty acids have been processed through the body’s lymphatic system, they don’t reappear.
However, the procedure is only permanent if you follow a healthy diet and exercise frequently following treatment. If you regain weight, it is likely that the fat pockets will reappear. If a healthy lifestyle is maintained, the results should be permanent.
People treated with AQUALYX will typically experience minimal side effects when compared to more invasive procedures, such as liposuction. Side effects include some redness, swelling and tenderness in the treated area.
Some people may experience some light bruising, but this and any other side effects will usually resolve within a few days. You may need to take over the counter painkillers to control any pain-related side effects.
AQUALYX is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breast feeding. It is also not recommended for those people who have been diagnosed with lipodystrophy or any pathological conditions.
It should only be used in people aged 18 - 60.
This treatment is used for UV protection in patients who suffer from acne. It also works by delivering an anti-acne activity through the inhibition of bacterial colonisation and by decreasing the hydrolysis of triglycerides and the consequent release of pro-inflammatory free fatty acids.
Specifications: SPF 30 UVa and UVb.
