Botox

Botox works buy blocking the nerve receptors that innervate the muscle injected, thereby preventing the muscle contraction. This stops the ability of the muscle to receive signals to contract. This allows the smoothing of the overlying skin which in turn causes wrinkles to smooth out and prevent the wrinkle from deepening.

The effect is seen 1-2 weeks after the injections and will usually last three to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with repeated treatments.

Areas which can be treated:
Forehead lines
Frown lines (glabellar lines)
Crows feet
Bunny lines
Marionette lines
Mentalis dysfunction (chin dimpling)
Gummy smiles

Price of Botox Per Unit – R75

Ceccarelli Fat Lipolysis

What are Ceccarelli Fat Loss Injections/Lipolysis?

Lipolysis is an innovative, gentle and nonsurgical method which helps reduce the accumulation of STUBBORN FAT deposits in targeted regions of the body.

It is a mesotherapy solution formulated by an Italian Professor Maurizio Ceccarelli which contains vitamin C and minute amount of iron. The vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in higher doses works as a pro-oxidant; when mixed with iron and injected into the fat tissue it initiates the Fenton reaction leading to generation of hydroxyl type radicals. These radicals trigger natural death of fat cells by a physiological process called apoptosis.

Procedure

The solution is injected into localised fatty deposits in a grid like pattern. The number of sessions required depends on the amount of resistant fat that needs to be dissolved. In most cases, one treatment is succinct, but for a moderate amount of fat usually 2 to 3 treatments are needed. Treatments can be repeated every 2 to 4 weeks over a 6 to 8 week period.

Treatment Areas

Face
Fatty jawline
Eye bags
Naso-labial bulges
Jowls
Double chin

Body
Resistant tummy fat
Love handles
Inner thighs
Saddle bags
