Fat-dissolving injections work by injecting into the subcutaneous layer of fat, breaking down the fat cells allowing them to pass through the lymphatic system. 

The ideal candidate for the fat dissolving injection treatment is someone who is not interested in a surgical procedure and who has a stubborn area of fat which is relatively non-responsive to dieting and exercise.

There is a spectrum of efficacy with treatments for fat removal with surgical liposuction still remaining the gold standard for removal of fat, however many people are not interested in the downtime, expense or the surgical nature of this procedure.

TEAR TROUGH

A subtle treatment for hollow areas beneath your eyes.
A common side effect of the ageing process is the deepening of the hollows below your eyes, known as the tear trough.

This natural sign of ageing happens because soft tissue loses volume as we get older, and it is often made more noticeable through lifestyle factors such as stress and lack of sleep. This can result in dark circles around your eyes and a tired, haggard appearance that can make you look older than you feel.

At Mi Vida, we use soft dermal fillers designed to make subtle enhancements to the tear troughs. The dermal fillers we use contain hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in your skin cells and acts as your body’s own moisturiser for supple, youthful skin.
Your treatment will begin with an in-depth consultation to help us understand your requirements.
The treatment usually takes around half an hour, and you should be able to return to your everyday activities soon afterwards. The results of this treatment are usually visible immediately after, and though there may be some slight swelling and bruising, this can go away after a day or two. Each treatment may vary from one person to another.
Is it painful?
This treatment uses tiny needles for minimum discomfort, and the fillers themselves contain local anaesthetic, to reduce any pain and minimalize discomfort.

HYPERHIDROSIS
Wave goodbye to embarrassing sweat patches
Although sweating is a normal bodily function designed to keep us cool, around 1% of us experience very high levels of sweating. The clinical name given to this excessive sweating is Hyperhidrosis. While not harmful to your health, the condition can be incredibly difficult to live with, causing anxiety and a lack of self-confidence. The good news is, if you are getting fed up of excessive sweating and wet patches on your clothes, there is a treatment that is designed to alleviate the effects of this distressing condition.

The treatment works by using a special protein to suppress the apocrine glands, which produce sweat. The treatment is most commonly used to tackle excessive underarm sweating, but it can also be performed elsewhere on the body where sweating is experienced, such as the forehead.

Excessive sweating treatment
Your Hyperhidrosis procedure will begin with an in-depth consultation to discuss your concerns and what you hope to achieve through your treatment. The results of this highly effective injectable treatment for excessive sweating should be seen within about seven days. It normally lasts between three to six months before the need for a top up. This varies from one person to the next.

Procedure Time: 15 mins
Recovery Time: None

LIP ENHANCEMENT

Lip fillers for fuller lips
Fuller lips have long been considered one of the hallmarks of female beauty. Unfortunately, our lips often lose volume as we get older, meaning that our mouths become less defined and sometimes droop at the corners, making us appear older. At Mi Vida, we can help you reverse these common effects of ageing, using our highly effective lip enhancement treatment which can help to give you a more youthful, radiant appearance and a fuller, natural-looking smile.

Read more ...
Our revolutionary lip enhancement uses a soft hyaluronic acid dermal filler to make subtle alterations to the contours of your lips, which can give definition making them appear smoother, softer and more luscious.
The filler we use for your lip enhancement treatment has less hydrophilic than other dermal and lip fillers, so it absorbs less water and can keep post-treatment swelling to a minimum. This way you may resume your day-to-day activities soon after your treatment. Though there will be some redness and tenderness in the injected areas initially, this can subside within a week of your treatment.
We normally advise you to avoid make-up for 12 hours after the procedure, and we also recommend avoiding the sun, saunas, and steam rooms for a couple of weeks.
After lip enlargement
After the lip enhancement treatment, the lips often swell a little making the final results visible only after a couple of days when the swelling spontaneously resolves. The results of this treatment can last up to a year, though this varies from person to person. We suggest to have a touch-up session every 2 to 4 weeks in order to maintain the initial results. Each treatment may vary from one person to another.
What does the treatment involve?
After an in-depth consultation to discuss your requirements, this virtually pain-free treatment it takes just half an hour.
What are the benefits?
The lip enhancement treatment is usually quick and the use of local anaesthetic makes it virtually painless. Recovery time after the treatment is typically short and the results can be observed after only a couple of days.
How many treatments do I need?
This treatment can last for up to 6 to12 months but will vary from person to person.
