At the Practice we offer the latest in wrinkle relaxation and facial rejuvenation techniques
using a combination of Botox and Dermal Fillers to complement your smile. Charl du Toit can help with these treatments on some Fridays.
Botox (Botulinum Toxin) [Bocouture]
Botox diminishes un-wanted wrinkles and frown lines that appear across the forehead, and the corners of the eyes. Years of making facial expressions cause permanent creases in the skin. Botox is injected into the affected area; it temporarily paralyses the muscles so these creases disappear. The effect usually lasts for 2 to 4 months.
Non-surgical aesthetic treatments are becoming more and more popular because they are quicker, less painful and more subtle than plastic surgery. Dermal fillers are injected to remove wrinkles and folds, to re-plump cheeks and to firm facial contours. Dermal fillers are great to treat nasolabial folds (from nose to mouth), smoker's lines around the mouth and lips. Appointments are between 30 minutes to one hour with the effects lasting up to 18 months.
