Nikki is an Advanced Nurse Practitioner and Independent Nurse Prescriber with 22 years of nursing experience and post graduate qualifications. She was trained by an award leading aesthetic training company to administer wrinkle relaxing treatment (Botox) and Dermal fillers.
Fine lines can be softened by injecting small amounts of Botox around the eyes, between the eyes and across the forehead. These small injections temporarily relax the nerve endings of the facial muscles, leaving a fresher appearance. Full effects can be seen within 2 weeks and last between 4 and 6 months, although this depends on the individual.
Dermal fillers are artistically injected into the skin to restore lost volume and definition giving a healthy, younger appearance. Fillers are a smooth clear gel that lifts and smoothes wrinkles, lines and folds. They are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is naturally found in our skin, the older we get the less HA is produced, causing the loss of volume and lines. The results are immediate and effects can last 6 – 12 months, depending on lifestyle. Dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with Botox to give a more youthful appearance.
