Procedures

Used for lines caused by movement such as frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet and sometimes “smokers” lines. It is used to target only the muscle causing the line so giving a soft, more relaxed look not a frozen face

The skin around the treated area will look smooth and less wrinkled, following these injections, but allow untreated areas of your face to move as normal and you will still be able to laugh, smile and frown, but with less wrinkling of the skin.

After a while, most patients will notice that the lines and wrinkles around their treated areas will continue to become less deep and pronounced. This is a result of the injections as the new skin has a chance to grow without being repeatedly creased. Hence, it appears to be smoother on the surface because it has not been creased by constant muscle activity.

The Exeter Skin Clinic mainly uses Botox/Vistabel® which are both prescription only medicines and for this reason, best injected by a qualified and experienced clinician. We recommend Botox® for lines and wrinkles, as well as bruxism (teeth grinding) and migraine relief.

As the skin ages, it gradually loses some of its collagen and fat. These are the materials that prevent the skin from becoming saggy and, as we age, our skin can become thinner and more wrinkled.

Dermal fillers, or Facial Fillers as they can be known, help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance. When injected, these Dermal Fillers plump up lines and creases from the underside using substances that are found naturally in the supporting layer of the skin.

Generally, this form of treatment is best suited to lines on the cheeks and around the mouth, and the effect is maintained for a variable length of time depending upon which filler is used. The filler used by The Exeter Skin Clinic is Juvéderm®. The procedure should take approximately 20 minutes and the effects are instant.

 

Get the fuller lips and pout you have always wanted. Lip Enhancement allows you to get more definition into your lips and regain a youthful plumpness which will really enhance your confidence.

The lip area is injected with a soft filler in order to provide plumpness. The whole procedure takes around 30 minutes. This relatively simple and non-surgical procedure provides an interesting option for those who require a quick enhancement to their lower face.

We can also offer Lip Implants at The Exeter Skin Clinic, which offer a more permanent solution for those seeking a fuller pout. We are proud to be the first clinic in Exeter to offer this procedure. Carried out with only local anaesthetic, small incisions are at the corners of the mouth and an implant is slipped into position. Go into more detail when we have it

With age, patients often notice skin blemishes and fine lines appearing on the face and the backs of their hands. These sun-induced aging features can be treated with a chemical peel, specifically designed to rejuvenate the skin in these areas.

Patients will also notice a mild degree of skin tightening which produces a non-surgical facelift effect.

Occasionally several treatments are required to achieve the desired result. At The Exeter Skin Clinic we work with Obagi Medical Products to offer the Systems, Blue Peel® and Blue Peel RADIANCE®. This can be carried out at the practice by our aesthetic nurse, who will advise which is the right one for you.
