A fully trained and experienced Plastic Surgeon will understand ageing process and will be able to determine whether non-surgical or surgical procedures, or a combination, will produce your desired results. You may be considering dermal fillers or Botox when you really need a face lift, or a neck lift, or eyelid surgery, or vice versa.
An experienced and well-trained Plastic Surgeon is your best partner as he/she will understand what surgery and non-surgical procedures will achieve. Not everyone carrying out dermal filler and Botox treatments will understand the ageing process, the anatomy and the risks. At ASET Hospital offers a wide variety of non-surgical treatments that aim to deliver tighter skin, renew contours, treat problematic skin and smooth wrinkles. We have an exclusive skin care programme which, after an initial skin assessment by our Consultants, can be individually tailored to your needs.
Our Consultant Plastic Surgeons are members of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) and International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) and all have a variety of professional qualifications.
Having anti wrinkle injections using Botulinum Toxin (commonly known as Botox ®) is designed to soften or remove lines and wrinkles (related to muscle movement) to leave you with a more youthful appearance. Having Botox ® injections doesn’t mean that the result needs to be a ‘frozen look’. Unlike many practitioners, the surgeons at Aset Hospital work with your individual case to devise a tailored treatment plan best suited to your needs and expectations. Being able to express yourself naturally, with eyebrow and forehead movement, is achievable and in most cases the desirable outcome.
Wrinkle reduction treatments are ideal for anyone who has concerns about forehead creases, frown lines or crow’s feet. The treatment still allows expressions to show on the face. Many people choose to have wrinkle reduction treatments to look fresher, less tired, less stressed and ultimately younger. It's always a good idea to prevent wrinkles rather than having to deal with them as and when they appear.
Every time you smile or frown, the facial muscles fold and crease the skin. Over time, these creases and lines become deeper and more noticeable, developing into frown lines and crow's feet. Muscle relaxants can diminish these signs of ageing. By temporarily blocking more transmission to the muscles under the skin, lines and wrinkles formed by the action of these muscles, are reduced and removed.
Botulinum Toxin (Botox) is effective for reducing the appearance of certain types of facial wrinkles, it softens frown lines and in many cases can prevent or delay other lines from forming in the first place.
The relaxant is injected using a disposable syringe directly into the muscles which affect the wrinkles being treated. The process takes about ten minutes. The treatment lasts for around three months. However to prolong the benefits a course of treatment is recommended. The injections temporarily relax the muscles, preventing the formation of wrinkles and smoothing out lines. Most patients describe only very mild discomfort.
Following this treatment you can resume your normal daily routine straight away. It may help if you exercise the treated muscles 2-3 hours after treatment by frowning, raising your eyebrows or squinting. Do not rub or massage the treated area. Avoid strenuous exercise and wearing makeup for four hours after treatment. Side effects are rare. However, you may bruise at the injection site.
Your consultation at Aset Hospital Surgery Centre, and will last approximately one hour. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will provide a full assessment and discuss your desires and requirements. You will be able to get answers to all of your questions and concerns about skincare, and your consultation will determine the products for you, tailored to your individual skincare needs.
