Non-surgical facial treatments refer to treatments that are done on the face that have anti-aging and rejuvenating properties and benefits. At the Harley Street Eye Hospital, we believe that non-surgical facial treatments should offer a difference that is natural and that is not immediately noticeable ‘the affect should be attractive, not alarming’.
It goes without saying that non-surgical facial treatments do not involve any surgery. This means that the treatments can be done at your convenience without the worry of having to go through a long recovery period. These treatments are an amazing way of boosting your skin and smile, while also giving your confidence a little boost.
Here is what you should expect when having non-surgical facial treatments at Harley Street Eye Hospital.
All of the injectables that we use are clinically safe and either work to block the nerve signals to relax the muscles and therefore improve appearances of lines or accentuate and define facial features. All of our treatments will give you healthy glow; so, let’s go over what exactly they are!
Botox (botulinum toxic) is an anti-aging product that can be injected into various areas around the skin to relax the muscles and soften the effects of stress, ageing and emotions. These injections are not permanent and usually last for around 3-4 months. Patients will most commonly have these injections in the forehead or around the around, however they can also be used to treat ‘imperfections’ such as a gummy smile by relaxing the muscles that lifts the top lip.
Dermal fillers replenish the level of hyaluronic acid that is found in the skin. These fillers help to add volume and rejuvenate the appearance of skin. This can also be used to fill deep facial lines or reshape facial features by smoothing them from within.
Like Botox, dermal fillers are not permanent, however the benefits of the treatment can last for up to 9 months.
Prevention is always the best cure; this is why we see an increasing number of younger people coming to Harley Street Eye Hospital to have non-surgical facial treatments. Recent research shows that people under 35 years old are most likely to have these kinds of procedures. Similar to getting fit at the gym, non-surgical facial treatments are becoming part of a wider self-care and skincare programme.
