Boosts physical performance by helping the flow of glucose to the muscles. Popular amongst body builders as supports the growth of muscle mass when training. 

Levo-Carnitine 500mg. Found in nearly all cells in the body. Plays a critical role in energy production.Omega 3 fatty acids improves cartinine utilisation. Provides energy to muscles and heart.May improve mental function and reduce deterioration in older adults with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease.  Increases peak walking distance in patients with claudication.

Secondary causes of deficiency: Chronic renal failure, or use of certain antibiotics. 

L-Lysine 185mg. An essential amino acid. Building blocks for protein. Important for proper growth, plays an essential role in the production of carnitine. Appears to help the body absorb calcium.

Athletes, burn patients, and vegans who do not eat beans may need more lysine. 

Effects of deficiency: Fatigue, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetitie, agitation, slow growth, bloodshot eyes, anaemia, reproductive disorders.

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) 155mg. Body converts NAC into cysteine and then into glutathione, a powerful antioxidant known as the master antioxidant. Glutathione neutralises free radicals that can cause wrinkles, and also helps to detoxify the liver, the health of which is essential for clear skin. NAC can help prevent side effects caused by drug reactions and toxic chemicals, and helps break down mucus in the body. It seems to have benefits in treating some respiratory conditions such as COPD and bronchitis. Increases intracellular Glutathione.

L-Arginine 100mg. Amino acid. Used for the biosynthesis of proteins. Helps burn fat and enhances formation of muscles mass. Can improve weight loss and fat shedding when combined with a health diet and exercise. Helps body use accumulated fats as a source of energy. Supplementation helps speed up fat burning process when used in conjunction with diet and exercise. When combined with Orthinine, improves athletic performance such as speed, stenght, and power in male weight lifters, aswell as burning belly fat when cutting for competuions. Plays an important role in cell division, healing of wounds, removing amonia from the body, immune function, and the grease of hormones. IV use reduces blood presurre in those with hypertension. 

Dexpanthenol 51mg

Zinc Gluconate 38mg. Trace metal. Helps to boost immune system. Helps to boost metabolism. Plays an important function in hair tissue growth and repair. Promotes wound healing.

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency: Magnesium deficiency can cause a wide variety of features including hypocalcaemia, hypokalaemia and cardiac and neurological manifestations. Symptoms include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. As magnesium deficiency worsens, numbness, tingling, muscle contractions and cramps, seizures, personality changes, abnormal heart rhythms, and coronary spasms can occur. Chronic low magnesium state has been associated with chronic alcoholism and a number of chronic diseases including diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, and osteoporosis Therapeutic uses of magnesium include asthma, myocardial infarction, and pre-eclampsia. 

Folic Acid 11mg. A water soluble B vitamin. Responsible for healthy cell growth. Improves hair and nail growth. Can help with weight loss in combination with B-vitamins and exercise. Promotes brain health. Functions as a co-enzyme in DNA and RNA synthesis and amino acid metabolism. 

Deficiency: Isolated folate deficiency is uncommon, and usually coexists with other nutrient deficiencies because of it's strong association with poor diet, alcoholism, and malabsorption disorders. 

Risks of deficiency: Alcoholism, poor diet, malabsorption (rare), women of childbearing age, pregnancy.

Effects of deficiency: Megaloblastic anaemia, symptoms of which are difficulty concentrating, irritability, fatigue, weakness, headache, palpitations, shortness of breath. Other effects of folate deficiency include sores and shallow ulcerations in the mouth, changes in skin, hair, and fingernail pigmentation, and elevated blood levels of homocysteine.Low folate levels has been linked to depression, and poor response to antidepressant medication.

YOUTHFUL, SMOOTHER SKIN

Botox is used  to completely rejuvenate and refresh the upper part of the face, and is among one of our most popular treatments. Treatment areas include lines across the forehead,  lines in between the eyebrows (frown lines, otherwise known as '11's'), and lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crows feet). Other areas that can be treated with botox include: bunny lines; brow lift; smokers lines; a downturned mouth; gummy smile; orange peel chin; eyebrow lift; the jowls and the neck (Nefertiti lift); jaw slimming; V shape face; and to treat teeth grinding and migraines.

We specialise in botox and baby botox treatments, so whether you are looking for a natural look, or wish to be 'frozen', we titrate the treatment to you.

NEFERTITI NECK LIFT

A Nefertiti lift is a botox treatment for neck cords (platysmas bands) and / or mild jowls. It is so called after the Egyptian Queen - Queen Nefertiti - who was renowned for her sharp jawline and elegant, youthful neck.

A Nefertiti lift is used to tighten mild jowls, soften the appearance of neck cords, and smooth horizontal neck lines -  resulting in a smoother, tighter, and more contoured neck and jawline.

JAWLINE SLIMMING

CREATE THE PERFECT V SHAPE FACE

square, 'masculine' jaw shape is often the result of enlarged / strong masseter muscles (the muscles we use when we chew). Strategically injecting botox into the masseter muscle results in a slimmer, more feminine, more oval, V shaped face. Botox for a slimmer face, injected into the jaw, can also help with teeth grinding (bruxism).

CHIN BOTOX

Botox can enhance the appearance of the chin, resulting in a smoother, more contoured, youthful chin. As one ages, the muscle of the chin contracts, resulting in a 'dimpled, orange peel chin'. Chin botox relaxes this muscle, resulting in a smoother appearance.

EXCESSIVE SWEATING

GET RID OF UNDERARM SWEATING

Excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, is a common problem that can have negative effects on ones confidence. Botox, injected in micro-injections into the underarm area can resolve the problem, preventing excessive sweating by blocking the glands that create the sweat.

 
GUMMYSMILECARDIFF.jpg

GUMMY SMILE TREATMENT

When some people smile, they may feel they show too much of their gums– often described as a ‘gummy smile’. As this is often caused by a hyperactive muscle which is responsible for raising the upper lip, this is very quickly, simply, and effectively corrected by botox.

 Occasionally, the gummy smile may be further enhanced by a thin upper lip, in which case lip fillers may also be helpful.

LIP FLIP

A lip flip involves placing a small amount of botox to effectively 'flip' the top lip and make it appear more visible. This is a very similar treatment to a gummy smile, and results in a subtle increase in volume of the top lip. The subtle, final result is not as long lasting or as noticeable as lip fillers

 
GUMMYSMILECARDIFF.jpg

DOWNTURNED MOUTH

Although a 'downturned mouth' is often caused by volume loss and shift of the tissues and therefore most commonly treated with dermal fillers, sometimes it can be caused by a strong muscle at the corners of the mouth, the depressor anguli oris (DAO). Botox injections into this muscle will raise the corners of the mouth into a more neutral position, but will not 'turn up' the corners of the mouth as dermal filler ​can. Botox in this area can also be used at the same time as marionette lines treatment

WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?

Anti-wrinkle injections are BOTOX (B0Tulinum TOXin TYPE A) injections.

WHAT BRAND DO YOU USE?

Not at all.
