The world of aesthetics can be a confusing place. With new innovations hitting the market every day, it can be difficult to know your anti-aging injections from your fillers and with every new treatment comes a heap of unanswered questions.
Luckily we are here to help! Check out our complete A-Z guide below to find the answers to some of your most common queries…
Q – What are anti-aging injections?
A – Our anti-aging injections contain a type of Botulinum Toxin made by the biggest aesthetics manufacturer in the world, Allergan. It works by blocking signals from nerves to the muscles, which then prevents the area from moving. It can be used to combat the effects of ageing by reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Q – What if I look like a different person?
A – You will still look like you! Our doctors pride themselves on their ability to create a natural look that complements your features; so you don’t have to worry about looking ‘done’ or answering awkward questions from family and friends.
Q – What if I am unsure about my treatment?
A – SkinViva offer a free consultation service with a doctor before every appointment. This is to help decide what treatment will give you the best results and also to answer any questions you may have.
Q – What are ‘Da Vinci lips’?
A- Da Vinci lips are an exciting new treatment pioneered by SkinViva’s Clinical Director, Dr Tim Pearce. Dr Tim uses Leonardo Da Vinci’s principles about symmetry and beauty to sculpt your lips so that they are perfectly proportioned.
Q – How long will I have to wait before I see any changes?
A – It depends on what treatment you have. The effects of anti-aging injections takes around two weeks to start showing and the effects of fillers are instant! But bear in mind, your treatment will only look its absolute best once any swelling or bruising has gone down.
Q – What if I have any questions after my treatment?
A – All SkinViva clients are entitled to a complimentary follow up appointment after every treatment. During this appointment the doctor will check how your treatment is progressing and even top up if appropriate. It’s all about giving you the best results!
Q – Do you train other Doctors?
A – Yes, SkinViva Training is our sister company. Doctors and nurses attend training courses by our doctors to learn about the art of injecting.

Q – What is Juvederm?
A – Juvederm is one of the world’s dermal fillers. Juvederm fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid which is already produced naturally in your skin. This makes it both safe and highly effective.
Q – Are all of your treatments administered by a doctor?
A – Yes, at SkinViva all of our clinicians are qualified doctors and some practise GP as well! So you can be sure that whatever you need, you are in safe hands.
Q – What is Lumigan?

Q – How will I know if I am asking for the right treatment?
A – Ethics is of the upmost importance to our doctors, so they will never treat you for something you don’t need, whether that means changing your treatment plan or even saying no sometimes.
Q – Will my treatments involve surgery?
A – No, at SkinViva we specialise in non- invasive treatments because we believe that it is possible to achieve beautiful results without the need for unnecessary surgery. And the bonus of this is, there is very little down time required after our treatments, so they won’t impact your day to day life.
Q – Can someone come into the treatment room with me?
A – Of Course. We understand that having a treatment can sometimes be a nerve wracking experience, which is why friends and family are always welcome in our treatment rooms to offer moral support.
Q – Will I have to pay for my treatment all in one go?

A – Yes. Our doctors visit over twenty carefully chosen beauty salons in the Greater Manchester area. Just give our Customer Service team a call to find out which is closest to you.
