The main areas treated are the frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet.

The product injected is a prescription medicine, Botulinum Toxin A. It has been used safely in clinical medicine for over 20 years. The treatment involves a series of tiny, relatively painless injections and takes only a few minutes. It works by blocking the nerve transmission to the muscle so the muscle remains relaxed.

There are various different brands on the market including Teosyal, Restylane and Juvederm as just a few examples. All of there products contain hyaluronic acid which is a non animal based product. These means that they are safe to use without any patch testing required.

Skin needling, also known as Dermaroller is a skin renewal technique. It can be used in the treatment of various skin conditions including wrinkles, scars, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks. It is also is great for improving skin radiance and firmness.

The technique involves using a cylindrical barrel with micro-needles to penetrate through the skin. This causes the skin to respond with its natural healing process and increases collagen production and tissue remodelling.

Local anaesthetic cream is applied prior to the procedure and the procedure takes around 20 minutes. The skin can look red for 24-48hrs, but make up can be applied and the skin does not peel.

Results are gradual with maximum benefit seen after a course of 3 treatments spaced 6-10 weeks apart. A smaller home dermaroller can be purchased for use in between treatments.

Microsclerotherapy is a treatment designed to improve the appearance of thread veins on the legs. It is the current gold standard treatment for thread veins. Thread veins or spider veins are broken vessels which lie just under the skin which can look unsightly.

The treatment involves the superficial injection with a solution known as a sclerosant into the thread veins. A tiny needle is used so causing minimal discomfort. The sclerosant causes the veins to swell and become sticky and then collapse.This triggers a healing response and the veins gradually fade over a period of several weeks.

A course of 3-4 treatments is recommended spaced 4-16 weeks apart. Little improvement will be seen after 1 treatment so it is important when considering this treatment to look at having a full course. At the end of the full course an improvement of around 60-80% can be expected.

  • The recommended gold standard treatment for thread veins
  • Minimal discomfort
  • A course of 3-4 treatments is recommended
