Botox is often used as part of a liquid facelift treatment at our London clinic. Botox is a protein that is produced by a particular type of bacteria. The protein is toxic, but it is very safe to use in small amounts. The toxin can stop signals from travelling along your nerves, which means that it can prevent the signals that cause you to furrow your brow, squint your eyes, or create other expression lines. Blocking signals from specific nerves can also help your muscles to relax. By targeting the right muscles, we can smooth out your muscles and give your skin a lift.
The other treatment that we use as part of our liquid facelift at the cosmetic clinic in London is a dermal filler. Dermal fillers can also help to tackle lines, but we can also use them to add volume where it is needed to contour or lift your face. Dermal fillers are just as safe as Botox treatment, but they work in a different way. The filler is made from a natural material, usually hyaluronic acid that can be inserted under your skin. The filler adds volume, but it can also trigger collagen production to boost your skin’s elasticity, and help to add moisture from within. Together with Botox, this treatment can tackle the common signs of ageing and leave you looking relaxed and refreshed.
