Facial aesthetic treatments can relax the muscles in your face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines. The effects are not permanent, and in most cases will last for three to four months.
The procedure usually takes about 15-20 minutes, separate to your initial Facial Consultation. Your face will be cleansed and the treatment will be carried out according to the treatment plan agreed with yourself, and in the best interests of the treatment outcome.
You will not see a change straight away – it takes three to five days to start working with the full effects being evident in approximately two to three weeks.

This treatment works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. When you receive treatment into the area of your body which commonly sweats, your overactive nerves are essentially paralysed – and when your nerves can not signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat, or the amount of sweating is reduced.Book a Consultation
Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)
Bruxism is the medical term for unconscious teeth clenching and grinding, either while awake or asleep, which can lead to physical painful and severe dental problems. Chronic teeth grinding can cause headaches, earaches, facial pain and even migraines. Dental problems from bruxism include loss of tooth enamel, increased tooth sensitivity and flattening and/or chipping of the teeth. Bruxism sufferers who grind and clench their teeth while sleeping frequently wake up with a sore jaw.
Many other treatments, such as anti-inflammatory medications and dental devices, do not always address the source of the problem. Although dental devices can successfully protect teeth from damage at night for bruxism sufferers, they can be ineffective in stopping the painful side effects of teeth grinding.
The treatment significantly relaxes the muscle and reduces the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding. Damage to the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) and headaches should be reduced or eliminated as well. Voluntary movements, such as chewing and facial expressions, are not affected.
This is not a cure for bruxism, but can be an effective way to control the uncomfortable symptoms better than a nightguard for some patients.
The effects typically last for three to four months.
