Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti Wrinkle Injections, also known as Botulinum Toxin A are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that temporarily reduce muscle movement. By treating the muscle with Botulinum Toxin Type A, we are essentially stopping the muscle from moving. By reducing the movement of the muscle, the skin is less likely to crease, therefore preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
Anti Wrinkle Injections only take a few minutes to administer with results becoming noticeable within just a few days, however full effects will occur 14 days post treatment. Depending on individual needs, repeated sessions are usually recommended every 3 to 6 months to maintain the desired results.
Treating the Gummy Smile requires the use of a small amount of Botulinum Toxin Type A, injected just above the upper lip. This will effectively relax the muscle that causes the lip to rise when smiling or laughing, reducing the appearance of the upper gums. Result longevity can range from 1 to 3 months and vary for client to client.
A Lip Flip treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses Botulinum Toxin A. By injecting a small amount of Botulinum Toxin A along the upper lip line. This can create the appearance of a fuller upper lip, and will also stop the upper lip from curling under when smiling. Results can last from 1 to 3 months and results will vary from client to client.
Creating a Brow Lift with Botulinum Toxin A is done by injecting a small amount of Botulinum Toxin A into specific muscles around the brow area. This will relax the muscles that pull the eyebrows down, resulting in a lifted and more youthful appearance around the eyes by “opening up the eyes”. Treatment effects can become noticeable within a few days, but will reach full results after 14 days. Maintenance sessions are commonly recommended every 3 to 4 months.
Toxin A Therapy
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
Excessive sweating, known as Hyperhidrosis can be treated with Botulinum Toxin A. This treatment involves, injecting Toxin A into the underarm area, treating the sweat glands and inhibiting their activity. Results can begin as soon as a few days post treatment but will take between 2 to 4 weeks for full results to be achieved. Results can last up to 6 months.
Masseters (jaw slimming/teeth gring and/or clenching)
Treating the Masseter muscle with Botulinum Toxin A is designed to relax the Masseter muscle. This treatment can help with slimming the width of the jawline and creating a more narrow face shape. This treatment is also used to alleviate pain and tension due to clenching and grinding the teeth. Multiple treatments may be required over a 4 week period initially, with maintenance sessions required anywhere from 3 to 6 months.
HayTox (allergy and hayfever relief)
HayTox is a Hay Fever Treatment that has proven to significantly reduce hay fever symptoms or even completely reduce them. HayTox works by blocking the receptors in your nasal cavity using Botulinum Toxin A. HayTox is administered by a nasal syringe and does not involve any needles. 1 to 2 HayTox treatments are recommended, 12 weeks apart.
Dermal Fillers used at TIQ are a Hyaluronic Acid Gel Dermal Filler. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule found in the human body, particularly in the skin. Hyaluronic Acid can retain up to 1000 times its weight in water, consequently contributing to the hydration and toning of the skin. Dermal Filler such as Skinboosters are a very soft filler that can be used to smooth surface lines and texture without adding volume. Volumizing Dermal Fillers can be used to add volume to areas such as the Lips, yet still leaving them resembling their natural shape, while firmer Dermal Fillers can be used to mimic bone structure and create definition in areas such as the Jawline or Cheeks. All Dermal Filler used at TIQ is non permanent filler and can last anywhere from 3 to 24 months, depending on the type of filler used.

Results from this treatment can be seen in as little as 24 hours after treatment however multiple treatments may be needed to remove all Dermal Filler present in the area. Areas can be retreated with Dermal Filler for enhancement treatments as soon as 2 weeks after the dissolving treatment, provided that the area is fully healed from the dissolving treatment.
PDO Mono Threads
PDO Mono Threads are dissolvable threads made of polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are inserted into the skin in a net like pattern, triggering the formation of new collagen and elastin, resulting in reduced fine lines and wrinkles, firmer and tighter skin and improved skin quality. PDO Mono Threads carry very little downtime and are minimally invasive, however you may experience minor swelling and/or bruising and may be able to see slight irregularities in the skin which will typically settle within 7 days. Results will occur after approximately 8 to 12 weeks, with results lasting up to 12 months.
Thread Lift - COG Threads
Thread Lifts using COG (Cannula with Optimal Geometry) Threads are dissolvable threads with barbs or cogs that act as an anchor when inserted into the skin, resulting in an immediate lifting effect. Thread Lifts have the potential to re-define facial contours and stimulate collagen production by providing a supportive structure that lifts and tightens sagging skin. Thread Lifts are designed to target to Lower and Mid Face, specifically lifting the Cheeks, Jowels and Jawline. Effects are noticeable immediately, with additional improvements over several weeks. Multiple treatments over a prolonged period of time are usually recommended for optimal results, however the number of sessions required for each client may vary depending on individual factors and desired results.
PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is the concentrated part of blood that contains platelets. When injected into tissue, growth factors are released aiding in cell repair and generation of new tissues. As we age, collagen production in the body starts to slow and our skin starts to lose its elasticity leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. PRP stimulates the production of new collagen, resulting in skin rejuvenation, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, skin firming and improved complexion, with results lasting 12 to 18 months. You may experience minimal downtime with minor redness post treatment, however this will typically only last up to 7 days. We highly recommend combining this treatment with our LED Light Therapy to enhance your results. Four PRP sessions are recommended 6 weeks apart with a maintenance treatment every 6 to 12 months depending on individual factors and desired results.
The first of its kind, Profhilo is a revolutionary Hyaluronic Acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. When injected into the skin, Profhilo stimulates skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and increase skin firmness. Being one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid, Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but can also remodel ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck but can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area, where it can effectively treat skin laxity.

Treatment effects will develop gradually over a number of weeks, as the body begins to metabolises the fat cells. Treatment sessions required will vary from client to client, as will the effectiveness of each session.
IV Infusion Therapy
Intravenous (IV) Infusion Therapy offers the ultimate wellness experience. IV Infusion Therapy is a treatment that involves delivering vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and other natural therapeutic substances directly into the bloodstream through an IV line. This bypasses the digestive system and allows for the direct absorption of nutrients by the body.
IM Infusion Therapy
Intramuscular (IM) Infusion Therapy refers to the administration of nutrients through IM Injections. IM Infusion Therapy involves injecting vitamins, minerals and amino acids deep into the muscle tissue, where the nutrients is gradually absorbed by the body. IM boosters can be used in conjunction with IV treatments or on their own.
