We are excited to share with you that ShuiQi Spa & Fitness is the only spa in the region to offer botox therapy and natural hyaluronic acid fillers, two of the most popular and top of the line treatments, from London Center for Aesthetics Surgery.
Every Tuesday and Saturday from 4.00 pm until 7.00 pm, Dr. Maurizio Viel will ensure that your treatment not only eliminates unwanted lines and wrinkles, but actually enhances your most favourite features. Each procedure takes between 20 – 30 minutes to complete, and there is minimum discomfort throughout the experience.
For those just venturing into this territory, Botolium toxin injections are preventative treatments to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes. Soft-tissue fillers can help fill the lines and creases caused by the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial movement, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful appearance. These fillers are primarily used to improve the appearance of the the skin’s texture, however, can also be used to add a fuller, more sensuous look to the lips.
What we love best about this new set up is that you can truly say to friends you have just been to the spa – and no one needs to know the key to your fresh new look!
