Medical aesthetic treatments at New Victoria Hospital
New Victoria Hospital offers medical aesthetic treatments that include botulinum toxin injections and hyaluronic acid fillers for wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation.
Botulinum toxin injections for facial expression wrinkles
Botulinum is a prescription medicine used to treat forehead and frown lines that are usually caused by repeated facial expressions.
Botulinum toxin relaxes the muscles and prevents new wrinkles from appearing. Injections are painless, and results can be visible just 48 hours after treatment, but it might take up to two weeks to see the full result. Its effect lasts between four and six months.
Dermal Fillers for deep lines and lip augmentation
Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by your body that tends to decrease with age.
Hyaluronic acid can be used in the oral and perioral area to reduce deep ageing signs such as smoker, nasolabial and marionette lines.
Hyaluronic acid injections are also used to increase the volume or correct asymmetries in your lips.
Dermal fillers can be repeated after six, nine or twelve months.
