Dr. Peers believes that Cosmetic Aesthetics is where art meets science. It is essential to have a 'good eye' and be skilled in various techniques in order to achieve natural and pleasing results. Treatments are tailor made specifically for each client.
Facial volume loss starts between the ages of 30 - 40. The face is then affected by gravity about 7 years later. Fillers enable us to address this volume loss, particularly replacing volume lost in the cheeks.
Increased volume in the cheeks gives a better platform for the eyes and so restores a more youthful appearance. Other lines, such as deep naso-labial or frown lines, which distract the eye from the features of beauty (the eyes and mouth), can be filled or softened.
Areas which can be treated with fillers:
Results can last 6 months to 2 years depending on the area treated. The treatments are very safe.

Botox (Botulinum Toxin) can be used to relax muscles temporarily. This enables the skin overlying the muscle to 'rest' and for the appearance of lines and wrinkles to improve.
Very small amounts can be used if preservation of some movement is desirable, thus giving a very 'natural' result.
Areas that can be treated include crows feet, glabellar 'frown' lines, forehead, upper lip, neck, jawline, marionette lines and overactive chin. The results generally freshen up the appearance and boost confidence and self esteem.
Results last anything from 3 to 6 months.

Used to stimulate the body's own fibroblasts to produce collagen. This results in the gradual increase in volume and gives a healthy glow to the complexion and face.
Results are produced over a year and can last up to 2 and a half years. The treatment increases the activity of the fibroblasts thus producing collagen in the skin. It also reduces the activity of the fibroclasts thus reducing collagen breakdown.
Specific areas can be targeted, such as the temples, restoration of curvature of the cheek and the chin area.
