BOTOX® is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein. BOTOX® smoothes out lines by preventing the muscles from contracting into a wrinkle. Long before it was approved for cosmetic use, BOTOX® had established 10 years of safety data for the treatment of opthalmic disorders. It has also been approved for the treatment of a number of debilitating conditions such as adult spasticity, cervical dystonia, migraine headaches and juvenile cerebral palsy. It is also effective in the treatment of hyperhydrosis.

A few drops of BOTOX® are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle, blocking the nerve impulses that cause the contractions. As the stimulation to the muscle weakens, the lines gradually soften, giving you a more refreshed, relaxed, highly natural looking appearance. The procedure is so quick and simple that clients often have it done during their lunch hour.

Smoothening of Lines and Creases – When we frown, blink or squint, we gather tissue into a fold which can cause a chronic crease in our skin. This results in crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines. BOTOX® blocks nerve impulses to muscles, causing relaxation. Because certain muscles are used when twitching or frowning, injecting these muscles with minute doses of BOTOX® stops the action. Once a muscle action has been relaxed, existing creases fade and further ones are prevented.

This treatment also shows remarkable results in brow elevation. It can widen the eye area and give you an open, refreshed appearance. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, anesthetic ointment may be used to numb the discomfort of a BOTOX® treatment. The procedure takes minutes to perform and the effect usually takes just days to become apparent. To prevent lines from reappearing, a simple touch-up treatment two to three times a year is recommended.

For Facial Contouring – Most women consider a square jaw to be rather severe and masculine. Chewing on foods such as dried squid or gum or teeth grinding can result in overdeveloped muscles in the jawline. This is known as Masseter Hypertrophy or more commonly, square jaw. BOTOX® is a highly successful treatment that can beautifully contour the lower face and create a slim, feminine jaw.

For Excessive Sweating – Sweat glands require a nerve impulse to activate. Without this stimulation, they won’t secrete. By injecting BOTOX® into problem areas such as underarms, hands and feet, the related nerve impulse is temporarily relaxed and prevented from reaching the sweat gland. This, in turn, stops sweat production in the treated area. The treatment is as simple as it sounds.

All patients report a substantial decrease in sweating within two days. Many patients have also reported not perspiring at all following treatment. Repeat treatment is usually recommended within five to seven months.

Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid. As we age, the distribution and function of hyaluronic acid in our skin gradually change, leading to the characteristic signs of ageing. Hyaluronic acid gels work by enhancing your skin’s own stock of hyaluronic acid, directly adding volume to either soften the signs of ageing or enhance your features.

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm® or Restylane® are smart and easy ways to add volume and smoothness to your skin. They are made of hyaluronic acid gel that closely resembles the body’s own hyaluronic acid. It is long lasting, but not permanent. Both Juvederm® and Restylane® are FDA-approved for use to restore volume and youth to the face. Fillers enhance your natural looks by restoring your skin’s volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance.

Hyaluronic acid comes in an injectable gel which should always be administered by a trained, medically-qualified practitioner. The procedure is quick. It usually takes less than 30 minutes.

Smoothening of Lines and wrinkles – Hyaluronic acid fillers provides volume by supporting the skin’s structure. Treatment benefits can be seen immediately and are long lasting but not permanent. Fillers works from beneath the skin to lift and smooth away lines and restore your skin’s appearance.

Restores fullness to lips – Hyaluronic acid fillers come in special formulations that are specially designed to create the beautiful looking lips you desire. Whether you’d like to have softer, fuller lips – or just add a touch of volume in the lip border to give a more sculpted look – hyaluronic acid is the perfect treatment for you.

Defined Cheeks and chin – Rediscover your cheekbones! While there is no such thing as the perfectly shaped face, we do know that better definition of the central triangle formed by the eyes and lips enhances the perception of beauty. With hyaluronic acid fillers, you can draw attention back to your cheekbones. By replacing lost natural volume in the skin, fillers can create fuller cheeks, lifting the skin over your cheekbones to restore shape to the upper part of your face, or add emphasis to your chin to improve your profile.

Skin Rejuvenation and hydration – Hyaluronic acid have special formulas that are developed specially for skin rejuvenation and hydration, countering the effects of sun damage and the natural ageing process of the skin. It improves skin elasticity, making the skin look hydrated and feel smooth to the touch. It is perfect for difficult-to-treat areas, such as the backs of hands or decolletage, as well as the face. It diminishes the fine crepey lines caused by sun damage and the natural ageing process and smoothes the skin to give a plump and hydrated look. The benefits of a Hyaluronic acid treatment generally last for several months and can be maintained by repeated treatment once or twice a year. However, there are no restrictions on how often you can be treated.

Hyaluronic acid “facelift” – At E Medical, the doctors have found that fillers can be distributed over strategic areas of the entire face to “hold up” saggy skins and to give an overall “facelift” appearance without the need for surgery. Hyaluronic acid fillers have been found to stimulate your own skin’s production of collagen so the effects of this procedure get better with time. Patients will see an enhanced firmness and lifting effect after 1 to 3 sessions depending on the severity of their condition. Effects are long lasting for over a year.

Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.*

Collagen production in the body decreases as you get older and/or are exposed to the sun. Wrinkles are one of the first visible signs of this. Sculptra® Aesthetic is injected into the deep layer of the skin where collagen naturally exists and is made. Sculptra® Aesthetic works by initially filling a wrinkle with small PLLA beads. As the beads biodegrade the body may produce new collagen where Sculptra® Aesthetic is injected. Sculptra® Aesthetic is injected with multiple small injections using a fine needle in a grid pattern to correct a wrinkle at the nasolabial fold or other facial wrinkles where this injection technique is appropriate.

Cleansing of the face will be required. Each injection session is to be conducted with aseptic technique. Before injecting Sculptra® Aesthetic, a treatment plan is determined. Depending on individual, patients can request to apply numb cream before the injection.
