BOTOX®

BOTOX® reduces crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines between the brows. It is suitable for men and women aged between 18 and 65.

How does it work?

Dr Vlok and his team carry out this straightforward, non-surgical procedure.

BOTOX® is injected into the facial muscles and works by reducing the ability of the muscles to form lines, so that they are less visible.

How often is treatment needed?

Lines and wrinkles begin to appear again after about four to six months, so re-treatment is required.

Hyaluronic acid fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers help ageing skin look more youthful by rehydrating, firming and lifting the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the skin which can hold a vast amount of moisture. As we age, this substance depletes, causing skin to appear dry and dehydrated.

The Juvéderm® range from Allergan consists of several products that treat every type of line, including deeper folds and wrinkles. These include:

Juvéderm® Volift®

Advantages

  • The latest innovation from Allergan, developed using VYCROSS™ technology, Juvéderm® Volift® is a combination of different hyaluronic acids, which allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, reducing side effects.
  • It is an extremely smooth gel with a natural look and feel.
  • It treats deep skin depressions, such as nasolabial folds (the folds between the nose and the mouth).
  • It contains lidocaine, a local anaesthetic that reduces numbness.
  • Results last for up to 15 months.

Juvéderm® Hydrate™

Advantages

  • It restores hydration, making skin smoother and softer.

Belotero®

Belotero® is a dermal filler that smooths and lifts the face. It integrates with your own dermal tissues, plumping skin and improving facial contours. It contains hyaluronic acid, which fills in lines and rehydrates the skin.

Benefits of Belotero®

  • Results are immediately visible after treatment and are long-lasting.
  • Treatments are only needed every 6 to 12 months to maintain the effects.

The Three Formulations of Belotero®

Dr Vlok will recommend the most suitable formulation of Belotero® for you.

Belotero® Basic lifts the skin and helps correct difficult problem areas, caused by ageing or injuries. It is an excellent treatment for patients concerned about deepening lines and facial depressions.

Belotero® Soft is ideal for treating lighter wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and lines around the mouth, while Belotero® Intense helps remove deeper lines and wrinkles.

TEOSYAL®

The TEOSYAL® range helps replenish the natural hyaluronic acid in your skin, stimulating collagen production to make skin look smoother. The range includes several different products, so you will need to consult Dr Vlok to see which is the right one for you.
The Procedure

A shallow injection of TEOSYAL® is made into the dermis with a syringe. The results last from 12 to 18 months.
