Non Surgical Rhinoplasty
Historically, surgical intervention known as rhinoplasty was the only option to correct a misshapen nose. However, many people find the thought of surgery costly and frightening, by the thought of potential complications and the risk of an unreversible result.
Advances in dermal filler technology mean you don’t have to go under th knife to get the nose you desire. Filler can smooth out lumps and bumps to give you a straighter nose.
We offer a non surgical rhinoplasty, known as the ’15 minute nose job’ as the treatment only involves the use of dermal filler to reshape the nose to enhance its appearance.
Facial volume loss contributes significantly to facial ageing. As an industry, we are continuing to move away from ‘chasing wrinkles’ and more towards treatments and techniques that incorporate a whole-face approach Facial volume loss contributes significantly to facial ageing, typically occurring in the mid face resulting in dark shadows that give the face a tired and drawn appearance.
The non-surgical facelift or the 8 point face lift are the most advanced non-surgical techniques are used to lift and rejuvenate the face, creating a much more youthful appearance. The real appeal of this treatment is that our patients have seen desirable instant results, without having to go under the knife and minimal down time.

Anti Wrinkle Treatments
What is botulinum toxin?
Botulinum toxin is a purified bacterial substance that blocks muscle nerve signals. The dentist can safely inject botulinum toxin to weaken facial muscle and diminish unwanted wrinkles and frown lines that appear across the forehead and at the corners of the eyes (crow's feet). Besides treating the upper region (forehead and corners of the eyes), we are also able to offer more advanced techniques to allow the removal of lines in mid and lower regions of the face. Treating the mid region of the face with botulinum removes smoker's lines and bunny lines of the nose.
Treating the lower region of the face with botulinum can help increase the smile by targeting the turns at the end of the smile (mouth droop) as well as remove tensions in the chin (witch's chin).
Areas that we can treat:
