It was my first ever treatment and I was very nervous about getting any aesthetics, but Stephanie was fantastic from the first consultation to completing the course of treatment . The service is very professional, spotlessly clean clinic and I will definitely go back again.. Thanks Stephanie
Stephanie was recommended to me by a friend. Stephanie managed to fit me in for a consultation and explained everything to me. I felt at ease. The actual procedure was great and comfortable. Will definitely be back in the future.
Lovely welcoming environment. Stephanie answered all my questions fully. Really delighted with the natural but effective results. Looking forward to returning soon.

Frequently Asked Questions
I have a cold sore, can I still get lip filler?
The cold sore must be completely healed before getting lip filler. You will need to wait until there is no scab or broken skin.
I want to get my lips done but I'm worried 1ml will be too much
For a first-timer 1ml of filler is usually perfect and would not make you look overfilled as long as the right product is used for you.
In my experience, 0.5ml does not provide enough of an improvement and you’d likely be disappointed once the swelling settles.
How long will the swelling last?
It varies from person to person, but most swelling occurs in the first 24-48 hours then starts to go down.
Some people have very little and don’t need any downtime and can go about their daily life straight away, although we wouldn’t plan it right before an important event just in case.
How does the area get numbed?
We mostly use numbing cream first which is generally sufficient to dull the discomfort.
As Steph was also a Dentist she can numb the inside of the mouth (injection) when requested, but you will be VERY numb for hours afterwards.
Can I use a sunbed after a filler treatment?
We don’t recommend using sunbeds for 2 weeks after filler treatment as you can get increased swelling.
How long does Botox last?
Results from botox are not linear, you will see the most profound effects for the first 8 weeks, then the effects will gradually start to diminish over the following weeks.
Results vary from person to person but most clients return roughly every 4 months
I'm thinking of botox for the first time and am a tad apprehensive as I've seen some scary faces
Getting Botox is nothing to worry about and it’s our goal to keep our clients looking as natural as possible.
Before any treatment, we would get you in for a free consultation to review what you were after and to answer any questions that you may have.
Can I go swimming after having a Botox treatment?
It is best to leave 24 hours before heading to the pool or gym
I've had my Botox treatment and now I think some adjustment is required
Botox can take 2 weeks to fully settle in. If, at this time, you feel any area requires adjustment or topping up, then book in for a free review.
This is best carried out between 2-3 weeks after initial treatment.
I have hooded lids and am worried Botox will make this worse?
By treating your frown lines without placing any Botox across your forehead then it will not affect your lids
Can you recommend something for hooded eyes?
Hooded eyes are not easy to treat, unfortunately.
Botox can help slightly but if they are very hooded then sometimes you are better spending your money on lid surgery instead.
What happens if I don't like the look of the Botox when it has been done?
The beauty of botox is that if you feel you don’t like it, it will wear off eventually without any long term effects and you’d not need to get it done again.
I have long covid, is safe to get Botox?
Botox may worsen your condition and you are better to wait until you are symptom free.
After getting Botox, how long do I wait until I can have my eyebrows tattooed?
You should get your eyebrows done first before botox so that the tattooist can do them at their natural height and shape as botox can change this.
I have smokers lines and I would like them filled but I don't want my lips touched
It can be difficult to improve smokers lines if you are adamant that you don’t want anything in your lips, as improving the volume here at least along the lip line will make a significant difference.
It also depends on how deep they are, as it can sometimes be a little botox that is required to soften them, or a combination with filler.
What is a Ptosis
Ptosis is a medical condition characterised by drooping of the upper eyelid. This can happen when the Botulinum Toxin is injected too close to the levator muscle, which is responsible for lifting the eyelid. The ptosis is usually temporary and resolves within a few weeks after the injection.
This is why it is extremely important to have Wrinkle Relaxing Injections administered by a qualified and experienced healthcare professional who is familiar with the anatomy and function of the muscles in the face and eyes. The healthcare professional should also have knowledge of the recommended dosages and injection sites for the treatment of wrinkles around the eyes to minimise the risk of ptosis.
Does Botox make you look older after it wears off?
Over time, the ingredients in Botox break down into harmless chemicals called amino acids. The broken-down parts are either used to make other proteins or are thrown away by the kidneys. So, Botox either leaves your body completely or is turned into a safe form.
Can you stop Botox once you start?
Stopping won’t hurt you in any way. There are no bad or harmful results. To put it simply, your muscles won’t be as loose. No matter how long you had Botox injections, you will still be able to move the area completely.
When the Botox wears off, the neurotransmitters cause the facial muscles to contract again, which causes the wrinkles to come back. As Botox slowly wears off, wrinkles like forehead lines, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet start to show up again.
But, and this is important, you might not look older than you did before. In fact, you might look younger.
Botox has a preventive effect, which means that in addition to treating wrinkles, it can also help stop them from appearing. When you use your facial muscles too much, you get dynamic wrinkles. Overusing the muscles that make you frown, laugh, etc. can cause wrinkles that get deeper and bigger over time. Because of this, they stay on your face even when you don’t smile or frown.
Botox injections, on the other hand, make the facial muscles weak for a short time. And, like all other muscles, the muscles get weaker and smaller when they aren’t used for a long time. So, if you get Botox injections regularly, the wrinkles that come with ageing will go away for good. Because of this, Botox injections can help you look younger for longer even if you don’t have wrinkles.
Are There Any Natural Alternatives To Botox?
This is an increasingly relevant question, as more and more people are looking for ways to reduce the signs of ageing without resorting to medical procedures. Thankfully, there are a number of different treatments available that can help provide similar results.
One option is dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid or collagen injections. These treatments work by filling in wrinkles and lines around the face, making them appear less noticeable. They typically last anywhere from six months to two years depending on the type used. The benefits include immediate results and minimal discomfort during application.
For those looking for something even more natural, botanical extracts like green tea and aloe vera have been shown to be effective at reducing inflammation and increasing skin elasticity. Additionally, many skin care products now contain ingredients such as retinol or peptides which can help encourage cell turnover and stimulate collagen production – both essential components of keeping skin healthy and youthful-looking over time. Most importantly, daily application of SPF is an absolute must!!!!
Ultimately, it’s important to consult with a doctor before deciding on any treatment plan; however, there are many safe and effective alternatives available for those wishing to reduce the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles without using medical interventions.
Are There Any Long-Term Risks Associated With Botox?
This is an important question to ask before committing to a treatment regimen. In general, Botox treatments are considered safe when administered by a qualified professional. However, as with any medical procedure, there are possible side effects and risks associated with Botox injections.
Longer term health concerns are incredibly rare but may include eyelid drooping if injected too close to the eye area, muscle weakness due to migration of the toxin away from its intended target area, skin infection at the injection site, difficulty speaking or swallowing after receiving injections near your throat muscles, and vision problems due to nerve damage caused by accidental injection into an artery supplying blood to your eyes.
If you experience any serious adverse effects after having Botox injections it is essential that you seek medical attention immediately.
