Botox has been used for cosmetic treatments since the late 1980’s. It is purified protein produced by Clostidium Botulinum bacteria. This induces long term relaxation of concentrated muscles. It was originally used to treat eye spasms and central nervous system disorders. As we age, muscle movement gradually wears away the collagen in the skin, causing the skin to crease and wrinkles to appear. Botox is an anti-wrinkle treatment and works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause forehead lines, frown lines between the eyes and crows feet. The Botox is injected into specific muscles and offer 3-7 days these muscles no longer contract as efficiently, therefore allowing the wrinkles to fade away. This effect lasts approximately 3-6 months.
The procedure is painless with no obvious signs of treatment, allowing the patient to resume their daily routine immediately afterwards.
Dr Hennessy is a renowned lecturer in Botox techinques for Aliergan (the manufactures of Botox) and as such is also able to use advanced techniques in Botox treatment for brow lifting, lower face treatments and hyperhidrosis (used to reduce excess perspiration).
Dermal Fillers are a quick, non surgical procedure for a youthful look. They are used to smooth the lines and creases on the lower parts of the face.
The most appropriate lines to treat with fillers are those that are described as static, this means that the lines that you can see when your face is still.
Restylane, hydrafill and juvederm are the main products used to smooth lines around your mouth and nose. They are used to redefine or enhance the size and shape of your lips. They can reduce laughter lines and fill out your cheeks.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff. We are new to your practice and our son Jake had two teeth extracted on Tuesday. Jake was very nervous. He really struggles with “needles” and was worried about the whole procedure. Everyone went out of their way to put Jake at ease from the welcoming receptionists, dental nurses and of course the dental surgeon. With your support, he managed to have the two 1st teeth removed and although I know he wants to avoid similar experiences, the experience was much better than he expected.
Thank you for going the extra mile for Jake. Jake really appreciated it and so did we.
Ian, Anne & Jake
