Facial Aesthetics

For many people, the younger they look, the better they feel about themselves. But age is an unstoppable process and, as the body grows older so does the skin and, consequently, its appearance and characteristics change.

We offer a range of Facial Rejuvenation treatments to help restore a more youthful appearance.

Please select the titles below to read detailed information about each of the treatments on offer.

Botulinum Toxin – Sudbury

Another option for reducing wrinkles and facial lines which result from the natural effects of aging, muscles activity, genetic predisposition, excessive sun exposure, alcohol consumption and smoking is Botulinum Toxin.

What is Botulinum Toxin?

This is a substance that is produced from bacteria; it is then highly refined, purified, diluted and used in therapeutic doses. Botulinum is administered by injecting it into a specific facial muscle where it acts as a muscles relaxant.

How long does it take?

Botulinum is most effective at improving facial lines or wrinkles due to facial expressions, eg. worry lines, frown lines on the forehead or between the eyebrows. This is because these lines are usually caused by overactive muscles and the treatment stops the muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles.

How long does the treatment take?

In most cases the treatment will take between 10 to 20 minutes. Effects will begin to appear very quickly within 48 to 72 hours, although the full extent of the treatment may not be visible for up to 10 days. Approximately 2 weeks after your treatment, the effects will be reviewed by Sanaz and any further treatments or top-ups can be discussed.

Treatment Areas

Vertical lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose

  • Squint lines at the corners of the eyes
  • Horizontal lines on the forehead
  • Muscle bands visible on the neck

Is the treatment uncomfortable?

Very small needles are used and only small amounts are administered. As a result any discomfort is usually minimal and short-lived, that’s why there is no need for local anaesthetic.

Do the effects of this treatment look artificial?

No, unlike some surgical facelifts, this kind of treatment is very specific and works only on those muscles that are involved in producing the facial lines that you want to reduce. Other muscles are unaffected and this means that your usual facial expressions remain the same.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are generally minimal, temporary, and typically relate to the local injection. Soreness or mild bruising, while uncommon, may occur around the injection site. Makeup may be applied after the treatment, but care should be taken to avoid pressing or massaging the area for several hours. A temporary headache is not uncommon after injections in the forehead area, especially after the first treatment. In rare instances, patients may develop weakness of the neighbouring muscles leading to a temporary droopy brow or eyelid. All of these possible effects are mild, reversible, and self-limiting.
