Muscle Relaxant Injections

Muscle Relaxing Injections help smoothen fine lines and wrinkles, reduce muscle tension and can help refine some of your natural features.

Our Muscle Relaxing Injections are a prescription only treatment to treat muscle spasticity and facial spasms in adults.

Muscles contract when they receive message signals from neurons in our brains called neurotransmitters. Botulinum toxin (Botox®, Azzalure® etc) mimics these protein messengers and blocks the brain's signals, a chemical process called neuromodulation.

The botulinum toxin affectively reduces the strength of muscle contractions for:

* Smoothen your forehead, soften the lines around the eyes and help lift the eyebrow in some patients.

* Smoothen the neck and define the jawline using the Nefertiti technique. Treatment of the platysma muscles or more widely know as the neck muscles can help reduce the appearance of the "Deirdre Barlow" neck appearance. This muscle is also involved in pulling down the corners of the mouth. Treatment can help improve the appearance of the lower face and neck area.

* Treating a gummy smile. A very effective treatment to help reduce the amount of gum shown when smiling. We simply treat the lifting muscles involved in smiling.

* Relief of jaw pain. Grinding and clenching of teeth known as bruxism. Continuous hyperactivity of a jaw muscle called the masseter muscle during grinding or clenching, causes tension and hypertrophy (enlargement) of the masseter muscle.

* Jaw sliming. Excessive activity of the jaw muscles called bruxism causes them to become enlarged.Repeated injections can help reduce the size of this muscle and therefore slim the appearance of your face.

Other possibilities:

*Smoothen the appearance of a dimpled chin.

* Help smoothen the vertical lines above the lip.

* Lift the tip of your nose.

* Reduce the appearance of enlarged pores on your nose.

* Reduce nasal flaring

* Reduce underarm and hand sweating (Hyperhydrosis)

* Help reduce migraines and headaches

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers create volume, fill fine lines and wrinkles, restore lost volume in the face due to ageing and they can also be used to create defined cheek bones, chins and jawlines.

Some dermal fillers are made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid which is naturally in our skin. As we age the amount of hyaluronic acid reduces and we stop naturally producing it in our late 20's. Hyaluronic acid helps with hydration and elastin formation in our skin.It depletes over time due to stress, diet, UVB and UVA rays and other environmental factors.

The hyaluronic acid is injected into your skin to create volume and definition. It's a gel form that comes in many thicknesses to address specific needs from simply hydrating the skin to sculpting jawlines.

It is a relatively painless procedure and numbing cream can be applied in advance.

Dermal fillers can be used in combination with other treatments to achieve fantastic results. The liquid face lift being one example. Results can last between 6 - 12 months depending on the area being treated and your lifestyle.

What areas do we treat?

*Lips and around the mouth. To improve the appearance of lipstick lines, lift the corners of the mouth and restore lost volume.

* Cheeks and midface - to restore volume and recreate a more youthful appearance.

* Foreheads - to soften the forehead and give an eyebrow lift.

* Temples - to lift and open the eyes and restore lost volume.

* Non-Surgical rhinoplasty (Nose)

* Tear Trough area - to reduce the dark and sunken appearance under your eyes.

*Jawline definition - to enhance the angle of the jaw, restore lost volume, define the jawline.

* Chin - to enhance the shape of the lower jaw and recreate a more youthful appearance. To mask the jowl area.

* Necklines - to treat the new phenomenon of 'Tech neck' or to simple improve the appearance of the skin on the neck.

* Decolleté - to help smoothen fine lines and hydrate the skin

* Hands - to improve the appearance of hands, restore volume, make them look hydrated and even improve skin tone.

* Knees - To improve the appearance of the skin over the knees.

Costs of treatment vary depending on what your desired result is and how much filler will be needed to achieve that result.

Skin Boosters

Skin boosters, what are they? They are fine gels that consist of hyaluronic acid, amino acids, peptides, vitamins and minerals to promote bioactive changes in the skin at a cellular level.

This very fine gel is injected into your skin to promote hydration and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin over time.

3 treatments are required, at 3-4 week intervals. The treatment is highly effective and relatively painless as numbing cream can be applied in advance of the treatment.

Results after the 3 treatments can last 9-12 months. The effects can be immediate but sometimes they can take a few weeks to be fully visible. A full skin cell cycle is 90 days.

Maintenance treatments are recommended at 4-6 month intervals.

Lip Filler Dissolving

Sometimes dermal fillers require removal.

Repeated treatment in one area with volumising dermal fillers over time can cause distortion or poor results. The lips are a good example of this problem! Dissolving the hyaluronic acid using a prescription drug called hyaluronidase can break the filler down. Results can be immediate but usually take a few days for the full effect to be noticed. The hyalase is active in the skin for up to 2 weeks.

Excessive sweating | Hyperhydrosis

Do you sweat excessively even when you're NOT hot or exercising? Does it affect your confidence? Limit the style and colour of clothes that you can wear on a night out?At Aisling Lalor Skin Clinic we have solutions and treatments available.

Sweating is normal. This is how our body cools down or regulates our temperatures; especially when we are hot or exercising.

However, it is abnormal to sweat excessively when your body does not need to cool down. This is called Hyperhidrosis. There are solutions available. A consultation is important to discuss and investigate some of the following:

Areas affected: Most commonly: armpits, the palms of hands, the soles of feet, the face and chest.

Possible Causes: High temperature, menopause, anxiety, genetics, certain medications, an over-active thyroid (hyperthyroidism) and low blood sugar (hypoglcemia).

Tests: An Iodine-Starch test to investigate the degree of sweating. Thermoregulatory tests. Referral to your GP for blood, urine or other tests if necessary.

Possible complications of hyper-throidism: Body odour, emotional vulnerability, an increased risk of fungal infections, especially on the feet (eg. fungal nail infection and Athlete's foot.) and exacerbation of some skin conditions; eczema, warts and boils.

A deposit of £50 is required for a consultation. Interested?
