Natural Looking Results For Both Men & Women
Facial aesthetics covers a wide range of treatments that are aimed at improving wrinkles & facial lines. Ageing is a natural process and occurs at different rates in everyone, but there are also factors that can have an impact on how fast this happens, such as;
- Genetic predisposition
- Excessive sun exposure
- Alcohol consumption
- Emotional & hormonal influences
Some factors we have in our power to control (to slow down the process), but over time we will start to develop wrinkles.
At Bellissima Clinic we have a professional & experienced team who are well versed in treatments to reduce the appearance of facial lines & wrinkles. Dr C V Elliott not only treats patients for facial aesthetic treatments but is also a certified trainer/advisor in the field. Vernon believes in natural-looking results and will listen to your needs before discussing what options are suitable.

Facial Aesthetics Procedure
The facial aesthetics procedure is minimally invasive and usually completed within minutes. Initially, we will see you for a consultation to discuss your needs and what options are suitable for you. Using tiny needles, the wrinkles are injected, which causes the muscle to relax, and the skin to appear wrinkle free.
The injections are easily tolerated by most patients, and you will experience mild & temporary discomfort during the short process of administering the treatment. Any marks from the needle will fade shortly after, and in rare cases, there may sometimes be a small bruise. We give both pre and post-procedural advice & guidelines, so you will be fully informed prior to going ahead.
For the consultation, examination & treatment, it will take approximately half an hour (with the actual treatment itself taking a few minutes depending on the treatment areas).
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it true that facial aesthetics last longer the more frequently you have it?
For most people, yes. What is important is the interval between facial aesthetics; if you allow your motion to come back to 100% before your next visit you probably will not see any long term lengthening results.
How long will it take to work?
You may start to notice an effect after 2-3 days, however this varies by patient, and in some cases the full effect can take up to 2-3 weeks following treatment.
How long will the effects last?
Duration of effect varies by patient and depends on the severity of the condition being treated. For most people starting out, the injections work really well for about three months and then give diminishing returns for about another three to four months. Every patient is different, and also, different areas tend to have longer lasting results than other areas of the face.
The overwhelming majority of patients walk out of the treatment room with just a few small red dots at the areas that have been injected. These typically take 15 minutes to fade and after that, there is no sign to tell anyone that you have had an injection.
Are there any side effects?
Facial aesthetics are safe in expert hands, and side effects of this treatment are rare. Occasionally a transient numbness may develop in the treated area & mild temporary bruising or a temporary headache may also occur.
Both 24 hours before and after treatment avoid: Aspirin, Nurofen, Vitamin E tablets.
Directly after treatment avoid: Massaging the treated area for a minimum of 3-4 hours, Sun exposure until inflammation has settled and heavy alcohol consumption.
24 hours after treatment avoid: Strenuous excercise, massages of any kind including whilst washing and cleansing as normal.
