Welcome to Azthetics

We offer a premium service for advanced non-surgical solutions for anti-ageing treatments. Based in the South West, we currently have 4 sites across Totnes, Ashburton, and Dartmouth, so we are at convenient locations for all of South Devon, and easy access from Exeter and Plymouth.

We offer treatments to reduce wrinkles, such as botulinum therapy (commonly known as Botox). We also provide dermal fillers, and are skilled with all of the premium labels such as Teosal, Emervel, Juvederm, Restylane, etc. Our advanced treatments include skin correction with a type of non-surgical facelift. We provide Silhouette Soft thread lifts and PDO thread lifts. We also offer an alternative to liposuction that safely removes stubborn fat and is very useful in re-shaping the face.

Our treatment for tired looking eyes is revolutionary. Known as blepharoplasty (eyelid hood reduction) it used to require surgery.

We are able to offer tattoo removal, skin tag removal and also treatment for acne scaring.

Our advance treatments and trustworthy team mean we see clients from all over the UK, including London, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham, and have a high level of customer satisfaction.

About Youth Rejuvenation Therapy

The aging process is a fact of life and in many ways predetermined by our genetics, however, it is also heavily affected by our environment and day to day lives. Factors such as air pollution, smoking, stress, insufficient sleep, inadequate nutrition, alcohol consumption can all exaggerate the appearance of aging. Perhaps the biggest factor in the onset of the aged appearance is sun exposure. Over exposure to sunlight can have devastating effects on the skin, some can be serious and difficult to manage, others such as the aged appearance can be simple to manage.

While we can’t actually turn the clock back on ones age, we can make it look like the years have had little effect. The results are almost immediate and the change is definitely pleasing. Non-surgical methods have been developed to help achieve these outcomes; they act on the deep and superficial structures that govern ones appearance. The techniques require the local administration of either a muscle relaxant, or dermal filler, or both. There is also the need for treating skin loosening; this can be achieved with a non-surgical instant face lift technique called thread lifting. Another factor is the accumulation of fat deposits in undesirable areas, such as the jaw line and under the chin. These can be diminished and ‘dissolved’ with a revolutionary new treatment that can melt small amounts of stubborn fat in a localised area. The longevity of all of the above treatment and Youth Rejuvenation Therapy can be aided with the use of collagen stimulation procedure known as PRP treatment.

Youth Rejuvenation Therapy relies on the above treatments to be delivered in a particular order at specific intervals to achieve a very natural result. When undergoing any treatment, it is important not to over treat an area; Youth Rejuvenation Therapy is designed to eliminate the guess work involved in assessing the true extent of the effects of aging. From consultation to administration to evaluation Youth Rejuvenation Therapy is a structured process and, while it has been developed to be the gold standard in facial aesthetic treatment, it is flexible enough to provide a unique plan for any individual.

Our commitment to safety, quality of care and exceptionally high standards mean that Youth Rejuvenation therapy only uses treatments that are CE marked and approved for use in medical aesthetics.

About Muscle Relaxant Injections

Over time our muscles in our face become heavily worked and as a result they become very tense and through force of habit they remain this way. A little known fact is that wrinkles always form at right angles the direction of the associated facial muscle. An injection into the main muscles that create the deepest wrinkles can allow for reduced tension and therefore the appearance of smoother skin. This uses botulinum toxin type A in a purified form at a low and very safe dose (the term ‘toxin’ is only used to describe a group of substances and does not necessarily mean that the substance is toxic). It acts by controlling and reducing the nerve impulse that causes muscle contraction.

The therapy has scope to treat many areas of the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, including:

It can also be used for re-contouring the face with non-surgical neck lifts and softening the jaw line. In cases of tooth grinding and jaw pain injection therapy can also be helpful.

It is, in nearly all cases, a painless procedure, and any discomfort there may be will be minimal. If requested, then numbing cream can be applied to the injection sites to further increase comfort.

About Dermal Fillers

This is the perfect accompaniment to muscle relaxant therapy. In some cases the use of botulinum injection is not enough to provide a satisfactory result, in this instance fillers can be used to restore the lost volume that is needed to bring back your youthful appearance.

Dermal fillers can come in multiple forms, but they are all essentially water attracting agents also help stimulate the body’s own natural collagen production.

Hyaluronic Acid – This is used in the transport of nutrients and also as a hydrating factor in joints. Its use in dermal filler therapy is mainly to fill under wrinkles and areas of reduced volume. By attracting body water to the area it helps have and extra volumising effect. This is by far the most popular choice of filler as it covers most areas. Results are instant and can last up to twelve months.

Polycaprolactone – This is a resorbable biomaterial that has been used for decades in the medical field, it is completely safe and approved for use in medical aesthetics. It was used extensively on prosthetics and has had a recent development in its use in facial aesthetics; it has superior collagen stimulating activity to many other types of dermal fillers available and is soon to be the filler of choice amongst facial aesthetic practitioners. Results last between 12 – 24 months (depending on the type of polycaprolactone).

The filler therapy is not permanent and is fully able to be broken down by the body’s own natural activity.

Dermal Fillers are used to target all the areas where there is a deep line/wrinkle or loss in volume; it is an extremely versatile type of therapy.

Our quality control procedures and commitment to ongoing care means that a 2 week follow up appointment is requested. This allows us to review our treatment and get feedback on your recovery after treatment.



About Thread Lifting

This is a very unique therapy offering the latest advancement in non-surgical facelift treatment. It uses safe and dissolvable material that is formed in to a suture thread; it is exactly the same material as the absorbable sutures used in many dental and medical treatments. It is therefore a very safe and well tested material.

Used in this form, the tread can be place in the skin in a painless technique to provide actual lifting of any loosened areas. It will provide an instant result of looking younger and as a result.

The long term advantage of this treatment is that it stimulates the body to produce its own collagen around the thread when placed. This means the effects of the procedure can remain long after the threads have dissolved. With re-treatment in a planned and regular cycle the results can be built up and the effects can be prolonged yet further.

It is an instantly acting and painless procedure that gives you the result that other treatments promise but fail to deliver.

The treatment is carried out with Silhouette Soft sutures and PDO threads.

What is Silhouette Soft?

It is a new technology with a double lifting and regenerating effect, through the action of bidirectional cones attached to resorbable suture threads. Manufactured in the USA under strict quality control procedure, it is the culmination of 6 years of research and experience with sutures for cosmetic treatments and reconstructive surgery.

It is made of poly-l-lactic and glycolic acids. These components are totally resorbable and treatment lasts 12-18 months.

How does it work?

Two actions:
A lift action for immediate yet discreet results: as soon as the treatment is carried out, the physician is able to redefine the focused area by compressing and lifting the tissue thanks to the bidirectional and resorbable cones.

A volume action for gradual and natural results resorption of the filament component, poly-l-lactic acid, helps skin boost its natural collagen, thus further redefining the feature being treated. Silhouette Soft is the only product on the aesthetic market combining these two actions.

What about the process?

The procedure can be carried out in just thirty minutes, under local anaesthetic, at our practice. The treatment will be administered by a physician trained on Silhouette Soft sutures. One or more sutures can be necessary according to the area to be treated.

Silhouette Soft can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with dermal fillers and botulinum toxin, and is an integral part of the Youth Rejuvenation Therapy.

Which area can be treated?

Why is it so innovative?

  • Immediate but natural lift effect in addition to a progressive volume action.
  • Progressive recovery of natural collagen.
  • The procedure takes just 30 min under local anesthetic at the doctor's practice.
  • Non invasive
  • No incision is made.
  • Quick return to professional and social life.
  • The components are entirely resorbable.
  • Flabbiness in the mandible area, neck, malar area and dropping eyebrow can be corrected.
  • The effect lasts up to 18 months.

The ideal patient is 30 to 60 years old, without either excessively loose skin or severe ptosis.

PDO threads

PDO (Polydioxanone) thread is a thread with no cones, and has its main cosmetic use as providing a tightening effect on the skin. It has been used for years in cardiac and cosmetic surgery as resorbable sutures, it, therefore, has a very long and tested history of being completely safe. It is an integral part of the Youth Rejuvenation Therapy.

It is suitable for anybody over the age of 18 who have evidence of the effect of aging. As the skin ages, it loses elasticity and tightness because a component known as elastin starts to break down and is not renewed as quickly. Collagen also diminishes and causes the skin to become thinner. The use of PDO threads helps to counteract this.

These threads are painlessly inserted into the sub-dermal layer where they act to provide firmness and lift. They also stimulate and aid the body’s own collagen production to help give a long lasting fullness to the skin it’s supporting. The effects last up to 12 months although the threads themselves dissolve in approximately 8 months.

This can be used as a stand-alone therapy, or in conjunction with any other youth rejuvenation treatment

Which area can be treated?

  • Facial contours; jaw line, cheeks and malar area.

About localised lipolysis

Aqualyx for localised fat reduction

What is Aqualyx?

This is a new and innovative procedure that manages to treat and remove stubborn fat deposits that are almost impossible to diet and exercise away. It is an injection of a safe lipolyitic (fat destroying) agent that targets fat stores that develop. In the aging process, these develop around the jaw line and contribute to the frowning and heavy jowl appearance.

It is an integral part of the Youth Rejuvenation Therapy and has its place in facial re-shaping. Its most exciting prospect is its use over the rest of the body, such as under-arm fat, or even in the abdominal area when the last few fat deposits need a bit more than diet and exercise to shift.

How does it work?

The solution is injected into the fat through a special Aualyx cannula using a unique trained technique. Usually 2 injection spots are required per region with the amount of product used differing according to the area of fat being treated. Lidocaine can be added to the solution before injecting to improve patient comfort levels; the treatment is relatively painless with a warm sensation, itching, slight burning, slight oedema and reddening appearance for 1-3 days within the treated area. The number of treatments required can vary dependent on the area/amount being treated with as little as 1 or possibly 2 treatments required up to 8; repeat treatments occur every 4 weeks.

What clinical data is there?

There are 3 clinical studies on the use of AQUALYX for lipolysis:

About PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment redistributes your body’s own growth and repair factors that are present in your blood. It entails taking a small sample of your blood, spinning it at a high speed to isolate its different components. One of the components is highly concentrated in platelets and growth factors. To further purify the sample it is spun again, the resulting isolate is a rich concentration your body’s own platelets and growth factors that play a key role in healing and collagen stimulation.

At various sites this plasma can be administered to help synthesise more collagen and provide the most natural rejuvenation result that works incredibly well with other cosmetic treatments. It is a treatment that is an essential part of the complete Youth Rejuvenation Therapy.

PRP treatment has an established history of being used in medicine, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery. But in the past 30 years its uses have been researched in dermatology for the purposes of wound healing, skin reconditioning, and in facial aesthetics to soften wrinkles and fine lines. It has been proven across multiple studies that PRP treatment can synthesise new collagen in the skin. It’s this ability that has made the use of PRP such an important feature of Youth Rejuvenation Therapy.

The procedure is relatively painless and can last 20-45 minutes, depending on the amount of treatment needed. The results typically last up to 6 months but can be prolonged and last indefinitely with regular treatment.
