Medical Aesthetic Injectable Treatment
Making the decision to have aesthetic injectables needs to be made very carefully with an open, honest discussion with your cosmetic doctor or aesthetic nurse practitioner.
Botox Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
Dr Natasha Gilani holds weekly Botox clinics at our Tunbridge Wells Clinic on Tuesdays and Fridays and occasional Saturdays.
No.6 Clinic® is BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, please book online via the online booking on this site.
On your first visit to No.6 for a Botox treatment you need to book in with Dr Natasha Gilani as a NEW patient.
Muscle relaxing injections primarily used to soften facial expressions to leave you looking refreshed. Mostly used around the frown area, eye area and forehead but can also treat the upper lip, neck and chin areas. It has also been used to effectively treat tension headaches. Can be used alone or in combination with other injectable treatments.
The collagen in our skin will diminish as we age due to overactive muscle movements. The reduction in collagen can cause the skin to crease and produce undesirable effects such as crow’s feet, frown lines and lines on the forehead, which can make you look tired. Botox works by relaxing these muscles, which causes the skin to relax as well. Lines and wrinkles are smoothed out or disappear all together. The Botulin protein only produces its effects on the muscles it is administered to therefore there will be no effects on other parts of the body.
The Botulinum toxin is injected in very small doses in numerous areas, using a fine needle. There is usually very mild pain experienced with, which should subside very quickly. The results are seen within 10 days of treatment and can last for 3-5 months, therefore it is desirable to go for repeat treatments every 3-5 months to maintain the effects.
Post Botox treatment there is no scarring and no recovery time therefore you can continue with your usual day-to-day activities as normal. Botox can have rare side effects and very occasionally may have effect on other muscles nearby and cause weakness of these muscles. However this is a very uncommon side-effect of Botox which is only temporary, lasting a few weeks at the most. It is possible there maybe bruising at the site of the Botox injection, otherwise usually no visible signs at all.

Excessive sweating, particularly to the underarms can cause a great deal of stress in working and leisure environments for ladies and gents. Put a stop to potentially embarrassing situations with this highly effective, quick treatment where results can last several months.
Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis is a proven technique to temporarily reduce the amount of sweat secreted in the treated areas. By introducing small, precise amounts of botulinum toxin, we can effectively block the nerves leading to the sweat gland, managing and relieving the issue for a transitory period of time. The majority of patients will require treatment on an ongoing maintenance basis, with results lasting anything from 5-7 months.

Profhilo is a stabilised form of the hydrating molecule hyaluronic acid. When injected, it stimulates the skin’s natural synthesis of collagen for plumped and firmed up skin.
Profhilo is strategically placed at key points (bio-active points) to rejuvenate the skin’s own collagen-making abilities. It is especially effective at treating those areas prone to laxity and sagging like the cheeks, neck, chest and décolletage. Areas which typical dermal fillers aren’t suitable in these delicate areas.
Profhilo isn’t just effective in the treatment of wrinkles and ageing skin – it also helps with radiance and hydration.
Dr Gilani recommends 2 treatments, 4 weeks apart. £350 per session. The treatment can be repeated after six months in cases where more repair is desired.
Price per 1 vial – £350 (nb 3-6 vials may be required)

Sculptra, also known as ‘the liquid facelift’, is a filler product which works by stimulating the production for new collagen in the skin. Sculptra can be used to give lift to the lower face and cheeks, add volume to a thin face or simply increase the firmness of the skin. It is also used to correct skin depressions such as wrinkles, folds and scars.
Unlike traditional fillers Sculptra is a bio-stimulant made from Poly-L-lactic acid and acts by replacing collagen and volume subtly over time by encouraging your own natural collagen to form. The results are not immediately visible and collagen will be stimulated over the course of treatments. There is little down-time and you can carry on with normal activities but as with any injectable, bruising is a possibility.
Results last on average for 2-3 years.
A course of 2-4 treatments are usually required, spaced about 4- 6 weeks apart. This allows for a natural, gradual change to occur.
Sculptra can be used to treat the whole face AS WELL AS OTHER BODY AREAS.
Upper face: temples and brow and forehead lift
Mid face: nose to mouth lines and cheek and tear trough areas
Lower face: jaw line and marionette area (mouth) and jowls
15 mins sclerotherapy £100
30 mins sclerotherapy £200
Please add an extra 15 mins to 1st appointment for a consultation with Dr Gilani (£50 redeemable against first treatment).
They treat the thread veins on the legs using microsclerotherapy. Microsclerotherapy is a safe and well established treatment for leg thread veins. Of all the treatments available, it has been proven to be the most reliably successful. A solution is injected with a very tiny needle into the veins, causing the lining of the vein to become sticky. Over a period of time the veins will heal closed and fade away. Depending on the extent of the thread veins several sessions may be required, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Areas: Mouth, Hands, Eyes, Neck – £275 per treatment.
£840 for a course of 4 (£210 per treatment).
Ideal for those who want to restore the naturally youthful look of your skin and improve signs of ageing, SuneKos is an injectable treatment that’s entirely different to filler treatments; this treatment uses a patented formula which combines amino acids (the essential building blocks of elastin and collagen) with hyaluronic acid. SuneKos regenerates the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) of your skin and deeply hydrates and plumps the treated tissue. This leads to ‘dermal biogenesis’. The result? A reduction in the severity of your wrinkles, hydration to both the superficial and deep layers of your skin, a desirable volumising effect and a dramatic boost to your elastin and collagen.
This treatment is ideal if you have loose, crepey, thin skin and/or a loss of volume around your eyes. It is also suited to help with lines, wrinkles, crepiness, volume-loss and laxity on your neck and face. SuneKos can significantly regenerate your ageing skin and restore a natural-looking, youthful appearance.
As we age, skin begins to sag and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. This is largely due to the fact that underlying collagen and fat that we need for firm, tight skin, begins to break down. This loss of volume is a natural part of ageing, however, it can leave behind unwanted changes to our skin such as deep lines from the nose to the mouth known as nasolabial folds, loss of cheek volume and sagging around the jowls.
Dermal filler injections can fight back against deeper wrinkles, add more volume to sagging areas and produce results similar to a facelift without surgery.
You can also use dermal fillers in younger clients to enhance their facial contours, for example if they have a small chin or thin lips, dermal fillers can give a perfect natural looking enhancement to your face shape.
At No 6 Clinic we only use FDA- approved product, such as Restylane, Juvederm and Teosyal, which are composed of Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally found throughout our bodies. It is in our skin, joints, bones and eyes therefore when injected into the skin it is naturally absorbed by the body meaning results appear natural and are not permanent like other alternatives.
At No6 Clinic, Dr Gilani uses an advance technique of minimally invasive single entry needle point with reduced trauma and decreased risk of bruising. The cannula gently moves in the deeper layer of the skin and injects the product to give a natural result with minimal visible signs.

Dermal Fillers are well known for delivering outstanding results. Results from Dermal Fillers begin to show immediately after treatment and can last up to 12 months (depending on the product used and the area treated). Lip fillers tend to last for a slightly shorter amount of time – around six months.
To give your filler the best chance of lasting as long as possible, there are filler aftercare steps you can take. If you look after your skin with sun cream and follow a good skin care regime then your dermal fillers will last longer.
Dermal fillers are used throughout the world every day and are very safe. In terms of the actual procedure, you will experience a mild discomfort. No one likes the feeling of an injection, but it is a small scratch as the needle goes in and then a slight stinging sensation will be felt as the filler is injected. We can use numbing anaesthetic to treat the area to help minimise discomfort.
Compared with invasive face lifts or implants, there are no cuts, stitches or incisions, so the small amount of discomfort is outweighed by the outstanding results.
The are some side effects listed below and all of these will be discussed in your initial consultation.
- The level of discomfort experienced by a client is dependant on the type of filler being used and the area being treated. The nose and lips are known to be a more sensitive area, the client should only experience a mild discomfort and anaesthetic can be used to ensure the client is full comfortable.
- A slight bleeding after the needle has been inserted into the skin is the first and most common side-effect.
- If you have a history of cold sores or fever blisters in the treated area, filler injections may cause them to break out again.
- Bruising, Redness,Tenderness and swelling commonly occur around the injection site, these side effects usually take 2-3 days to subside.
- On rare occasions clients can have an allergic reaction to Dermal Fillers, meaning redness, swelling, itching, hardness and bumps can occur in the skin. These side effects can last several months.
- Additional side effects include infections and discolouration or change in pigmentation.
- Dermal Fillers are normally tolerated well by clients, however, rare serious risks include scarring, blurred vision, partial vision loss, blindness, necrosis.
- Allergic Reactions may lead to severe reaction (anaphylactic shock) that requires emergency medical help.
After treatment, many clients are able to resume their day to day activities immediately. However, small side-effects from Dermal Filler are common therefore, it is imperative to follow all filler aftercare instructions to obtain maximum results without complications. Afterwards there may be some swelling or bruising. The swelling fades within around 48 hours and the bruising can take up to a fortnight to fade.
- The most common side effects include tenderness,swelling, bruising, pain,redness, discolouration and itching at the injection site. It is recommend to use iced water soaks or ice packs to help reduce swelling. The reactions normally appear shortly after treatment and may last between 7 to 14 days.
- Avoid activities that cause excessive perspiration such as, the gym, saunas etc for 48 hours as you risk sweating the Dermal Filler out.
- Avoid any form of makeup, Facial or Spa treatment as again this may cause the Dermal Filler to spread causing adverse effects.
- If you determine that the discomfort is severe or if the site gives rise to other conditions, such as oedema or prolonged swelling contact the clinic immediately.
- Most side effects will resolve with time, some side effects may persist longer than 30 days, in this case you are usually referred to your GP whereby antibiotics or steroids may be recommended. The risks associated with Dermal Fillers are low, but it is important to be aware.
- If you have any concerns no matter how big or small contact your practitioner immediately we will be happy to advise or invite you into the clinic to discuss any issues you may be having.

The Tear Trough is a groove that develops between the eyelid and the cheek. As we age we loose facial volume and elasticity, one of the changes which is commonly noticed is the appearance and gradual worsening of dark circles and ‘trough like’ hollows under the eyelids. Surgery to rectify the problem is not always. Therefore with minimal recovery time and outstanding results, Tear Trough Fillers can be the ideal treatment.
Results visible immediately and lasts an average of 12 months. Redness and bruising may occur.

Fortunately Hyaluronidase is able to help reduce the effects of previous filler that has been injected. The solution is injected into the treatment area and the effects can be seen after several minutes, with optimum results being visible after a few days.
8 Point Face-Lift
The 8-point Facelift uses the latest generation of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers to redefine, rejuvenate and subtly enhance your facial features. The 8-point Facelift also known as the Liquid Face Lift is a non-invasive, non-surgical face-lift that offers a subtle more youthful appearance with almost no recovery time.
As we age, facial volume significantly decreases. The main signs of ageing occur because of volume loss, re-positioning of facial fat and skeletal remodelling. This innovative facial treatment produces a more youthful look by restoring volume, proportion and symmetry to the face.
Using an advanced technique, precise areas of the face are targeted with dermal filler for a total facial rejuvenation. The areas targeted are those where greatest volume is lost, each point having a synergistic effect on the others, contributing to an overall enhanced appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are six areas treated with the 8 point face lift:
1 Under eye area
2 Nasolabial Folds (nose to mouth lines)
3 Cheek Bone (3 points for definition and structure)
4 Corners of Mouth (not for lip enhancement)
5 Jowl (frontal jaw)
6 Jaw Line
We use the latest generation of Juvederm® dermal fillers – the Vycross range or Teosyl Dermal filler range. These produce excellent soft, natural and long lasting results. These products contain Hyaluronic Acid, which is a molecule found naturally in the skin which holds in water, allowing for the intended result of providing structure and volume.
Because the 8 Point Face Lift is a non-surgical non invasive treatment there is next to no down time, no scarring, and much less risk of infection when compared to a surgical face-lift. The 8 Point Face Lift is a long lasting, subtle way to give a more natural youthful appearance to your facial features. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for up to 18 months.
Dermal filler injections used in the 8 Point Face Lift give a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression. As your face changes over time, dermal fillers allow you to control your looks subtly as you age.
Prior to starting treatment you will have a consultation to gain an appreciation of you concerns and expectations. At this point you will have the opportunity to ask questions, and Dr. Natasha Gilani will objectively grade the upper, mid and lower face in terms of structure, proportion and symmetry to prescribe a facial treatment plan, specific to you, improving your face as whole.
After a treatment plan has been agreed, and only once you are happy to proceed, you will be asked to read, understand and sign a consent form before the treatment can begin.
First, any make-up will be removed and the area cleaned with anti-septic. Then using a fine, sterile needle, Dr. Natasha Gilani will inject filler into the key areas of the face that the 8 Point Face Lift targets. The entire process normally lasts around 45 mins.
The results of the 8 Point Face Lift are visible immediately and most people feel confident enough to return to work straight away. There may be some mild swelling, bruising or redness but such side effects are temporary and should resolve within a few days. Once the swelling has subsided the final results of the 8-point face-lift will take effect over the following 2 weeks.
As each person is different in both their facial structure and the rate that Hyaluronic Acid is broken down within the body, the duration of the results may vary. However, results can be expected to last up to 18 months.
There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to Dermal Filler treatment. We pride ourselves on having an appreciation of natural beauty, and we work with techniques to influence your facial features to produce a natural, harmonious yet subtle result.
Individuals who have a history of unacceptable scarring, active infection, known allergy to Hyaluronic Acid or Lidocaine or those who are immune-compromised are not suitable for this treatment.
People who are most likely to benefit from the 8 Point Face Lift are those looking to:
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Define the contours of your face, such as chin or cheek
Dermal Fillers should not be used in or near areas where there is or has been skin disease, inflammation or skin related problems. Dermal Fillers have not been tested in pregnant or breast-feeding women. Individuals with medical conditions that lower the body’s immune response or individuals undergoing therapy that is immuno-suppressive may be more prone to infection by a skin injection procedure.
During your pre-treatment consultation, you should thoroughly discuss your medical history.
A small amount of local anaesthetic is contained within the syringe with the Dermal Filler to reduce discomfort and a numbing cream will also be applied prior to treatment.
Whilst the Dermal Fillers we use have been rigorously tested and have a very good safety record; no injectable treatment is without risk. Dr Natasha Gilani is a fully trained and highly skilled medical professional able to administer any injectable treatment.
She is a fully GMC registered, NHS practicing and Save Face accredited Doctor.
