Botox Injections, Dermal Fillers and Skin Rejuvenation
Stafford Skincare is one of the few Cosmetic and Dermatology clinics registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), ensuring safe, high quality care. All treatments are provided by Dr. Anne Ward, a Consultant Dermatologist since 1996.

Wrinkle Treatment with Botox, Azzalure, Bocouture
Botox is a naturally occurring protein that has been used since the 1980’s to treat fine lines and wrinkles. It is a very simple cosmetic procedure that can dramatically soften, and even remove facial expression lines. Botox works best for dynamic wrinkles that are created by muscle movement – such as frown lines, crow’s feet and horizontal forehead wrinkles. More advanced Botox treatments are available at Stafford Skincare including Botox for cobblestone chin, smoker’s lines and neck bands.

Botox treatment is quick and easy – the whole procedure lasts less than 15 minutes, and doesn’t need any anaesthetic. Tiny amounts of Botox are injected in to the muscles just under the skin. The effects of the injections are temporary, with benefits lasting about 3 months. However, for some people, the duration of the injections may increase with repeated treatments.

Botox for Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Botox is a very effective treatment for hyperhidrosis affecting the armpits, forehead and groin area. Improvement is seen within a few days and can last up to 6 – 9 months, depending on the person. An Iodine Starch Test is performed prior to the first treatment, after ruling out possible underlying medical causes for excessive sweating. Side effects are uncommon, but may include itching or bruising for a few days.

Dermal Fillers: Juvederm Ultra, Restylane, Belotero
As we age, the shape and contours of our face changes, with deepening hollows in the cheeks and sagging jowls. The corners of the mouth pull downwards and nose-to-mouth lines appear. Smoker’s lines become more noticeable, and lips become thinner.

A dermal filler is a soft injectable gel that can be used to treat wrinkles and to restore volume. Stafford Skincare uses dermal fillers made from stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid. The dermal fillers have been studied extensively, and are approved for use by the Licensing Authorities in the USA and the UK. The gel is similar to the body’s own hyaluronic acid which makes allergic reactions and side effects much less likely. Injection related reactions can last for a few days after treatment and include redness, swelling, bruising or tenderness at the injection site.

Dermal fillers are long-lasting, but not permanent, and do not affect facial expression. The benefits will last typically between 9 – 12 months, and depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition, lifestyle and age.

Dermaroller Collagen Induction Therapy is a micro-needling procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, resulting in smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin. New collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and the blood supply to the skin is enhanced. Because the Dermaroller induces new collagen formation, it can also be used to treat Acne Scars, particularly the wide shallow type. Dermaroller Therapy is safe in all skin types and colours.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) Skin Rejuvenation
Photodynamic Therapy is approved by NICE as a medical treatment for sun-damaged skin and gives excellent cosmetic results. It can also be used for skin rejuvenation, helping to improve fine lines, blood vessels and blotchy pigmentation. Treatment is simple: a specialist cream is applied to the skin for 30 minutes, following which the cream is activated by shining red light on to the treated area for about 10 minutes. After treatment, there is slight redness of the skin for 2 – 5 days. Improvement typically lasts for 9 – 12 months, but depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition, lifestyle and age.
