What is Anti-Wrinkle Treatment?

It's the injectable sweeping the world, but what do we really know about the wrinkle buster, that is Botulinum Toxin!

Botox is used aesthetically to combat wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin protein sourced from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It’s qualities help to relax muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Over time with extensive research and testing the injectable has proven to be able to also treat certain medical conditions.

How does it work?

Botulinum Toxin works by injecting controlled amounts of the product into the areas where you have active muscle movement. In line with our ageing process we gradually form wrinkles overtime. We develop these wrinkles as a result of repetitive active movement of certain muscle groups. The treatment works by relaxing the muscles which helps to prevent them from contracting and in turn slows down the formation of wrinkles and lines.

What is Botulinum Toxin?

Many use the word Botox as the name of the treatment when in fact this is just the name of one brand of Botulinum Toxin. Created by Allergan, Botox® is one of the biggest brands in the world. It would be the same as calling all vacuum cleaners a hoover… All brands of Botulinum Toxin hold their own qualities and names. Patients should be aware of the pros and cons of each to help them make an informed decision on the products used.

Is it safe?

Safety is incredibly important when it comes to aesthetic treatments and in order to ensure your safety it’s beneficial to know about the practice of injectables. Understanding more about this will help you to make informed decisions about your treatments. Administered by a trained professional this procedure is safe and can achieve great results

Is is permanent?

No, these injections are not permanent. On average treatment lasts for around 3 – 4 months post treatment and patients find they often need repeat treatments needed throughout the year. The right practitioner will guide you with your treatment plan to ensure your safety and achieve the best results.

As technology has advanced, it has become more apparent that in society we are more obsessed with how we look. Mobile phones, iPads and tablets, make capturing the moment even easier with the rise in ‘selfies’ and social media sharing. Within the aesthetic industry, there has also been a shift. Over 90% of procedures performed in the UK in 2015 were non-surgical, and approximately 800,000 of those treatments were for Botox and filler treatments.

Benefits of Intravenous Nutrition Therapy

Health and fitness has been at the forefront of this century. Millennials are more interested in green juices and yoga compared to Big Macs and nightclubs. The health industry itself continues to grow leaping from strength to strength in a health conscious world.
The trend is very much to look after our bodies, focusing on what’s inside it rather than what’s covering it.
Our bodies need at least 30 vitamins, minerals and amino acids to keep it healthy a day. Contrary to popular belief this cannot be consumed through food, drink and supplements alone. Only a small percentage of the needed nutrients make it into our bodies after the digestive system has broken down what has been ingested.
The health conscious have become aware of this, turning to IVNT therapy to help feed their vitamin needs…

What is IVNT?

Back in the 1960’s an American Doctor named John Meyers noticed that the body needed nutrients in order to be at it’s healthiest. It soon became apparent to Meyers that those who are ill also benefited from having nutrients and vitamins reintroduced into their bodies. After extensive investigation he successfully used an IV to administer the required vitamins and minerals into the human body. Vitamins were carried straight into the bloodstream with the use of a cannula. Unlike consuming the nutrients by food or drink, all nutrients in the IV made their way directly into the body. Named the “Meyers’ Cocktail” the IV could treat asthma, migraines, fatigue, muscle spasms plus many more medical conditions.

Since then researchers have found that this way of absorbing nutrients can be personalised to meet individual requirements of the patient. Developing a menu of vitamin “Cocktails” IVNT has been able to personalise IV’s to help all areas of human wellbeing from aging to tiredness and even skin quality.

What are the benefits for patients?
