The traditional approach is to simply feed filler into the main line/wrinkle. However, this does not address the underlying cause. As certified advanced aesthetic practitioners, keeping up with the latest techniques, we will ensure your lines/folds are treated effectively, whilst helping to tackle the underlying cause as well. Loss of support in the mid and lower face leads to marionette folds. Therefore, the best approach is to correct the mid-face loss whilst re-establishing support in the chin and surrounding area. This is better explained in consultation.
Incredible advancements in filler technology combined with the team’s 20 years experience with fillers, allow us to address a wide array of concerns. This includes age lines, volume loss (often ignored!), smoker’s/kiss lines and thin lips. Our speciality is to design a personal plan to make small subtle changes in multiple areas to create a significant but natural looking result.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

RF is also used as part of Lipofirm Pro treatments for the body, by tightening excess skin after fat destruction.
Mesotherapy is a medical specialty that involves injecting microscopic quantities of natural extracts, homeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals and vitamins directly into the skin where it is needed.
You will have a thorough skin consultation with our doctor or nurse and the appropriate peel treatment for your skin, will be advised at that time. Dr Patel can also discuss all the management options available for specific skin conditions such as rosacea and acne.
