Skin Care & Anti-Aging Treatments
Botox is a muscle relaxant that is injected into the muscles or deep into the skin. It works by partially blocking the nerve impulses to any muscles that have been injected and reduces excessive contractions of these muscles. Botox can be used to improve the skins appearance. Lines and wrinkles can make you look more tired, angry or older than you really are. Lines are also often linked with negative emotions. As Botox can delay and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, it can help you to maintain a healthy look. The aesthetic effects of Botox last for an average of 3-4 months, and results of the treatment may take up to 14 days to take full effect. The tiny bumps that result after the injection will fade almost immediately and will be completely gone within a few hours. Dr. D’Arcy regularly attends training and refresher courses in Botox and is thus always up to date with the latest available techniques, ensuring great results for our patients.
Dermal fillers are composed of Hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is naturally occurring in the body. It helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. Dermal Fillers have many applications, some of which include enhancing lip volume, redefining lip shape and improving vertical lip lines. It can also be used to fill out fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. As the fillers are composed of a smooth gel, the effects are natural and instant. Dr. D’Arcy will administer a local anesthetic so the procedure is not painful. The results can last up to one year.
