We get lots of questions and below are some of the most common ones and the solution to the problems.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to fill out our online consultation form:
Weight loss wrinkles
Q - After a very stressful year I have lost quite a lot of weight and now my face looks 70 rather than 50. Is there anything that could help?
A – Yes! Periods of stress have a big impact on ageing and weight loss on the face leaves us with sagging skin and wrinkles appear deeper. Restoring volume to the face with Sculptra, collagen stimulating injections that make your own skin thicken restoring volume and plumpness to the face where it has been lost, gradually over several weeks giving a much more youthful but entirely natural look. Think of blowing up a balloon then let half the air out, Sculptra simply “puts the air back in the balloon” so to speak. £375 per vial (usually 1 vial per decade of age needed).
Brown spots/sun spots
Q - I have noticed brown spots starting to appear on my face/hands/decolletage which is really getting me down. What can I do as I'm getting married this summer and want to look my best?
A – Brown spots are caused by sun damage that start to appear in our late 30’s/40’s. IPL (Intense pulsed light) is just like a laser that shatters the pigment deep in the skin breaking it up and bringing it to the surface of the skin where it simply flakes off after a few days.
Usually 2-3 treatments are required 4 weeks apart depending on how deep the pigment is in the skin. You can add on a peel/microdermabrasion to smooth the skin surface for even more rejuvenation. From £45 per session depending on size of area to be treated.
A test patch is required at least 48 hours before treatment and this is free of charge.
Deep frown lines/smile lines
Q - Now the suns coming out I notice how deep my frown and forehead lines and crows feet are getting when I look in my car mirror, help!
A – These lines are lines caused by muscle movement which intensify as we start to get older and our skin is no longer as thick or elastic as it used to be. Botox is the solution. It coats the nerve ending so it cant send a signal to the muscle to move which stops the lines in just a few days. The added benefit is it lifts the brows very slightly for a more relaxed, less tired look. Good Botox should not be obvious to anyone, just giving a totally natural but more refreshed look. From £200 – £300 depending on how many areas you have.
Dull, clogged up skin
Q - My skin looks really dull and congested and I keep getting breakouts even though I cleanse every day. What else can I do?
A – Despite regular cleansing, debris such as dead skin cells build up on the skin surface leaving a “rough” layer sitting on the top which makes it look dull and blocked pores lead to blackheads and breakouts.
Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliating treatment to remove this debris and leave the skin surface silky smooth allowing your skin care to penetrate better and leaving it glowy and illuminated.
Peels do a similar job for those with more sensitive or thinner skin or broken veins. Resurfacing peels are not like the extreme ones you see on makeover programmes but will simply leave you red for an hour or so after treatment.
Why not book in for a free skin analysis where we can look under your skin with a specialist camera to see exactly what problems lie beneath and how effectively your skin care is working for you. It may just save you a fortune on expensive skin products that simply don’t work for you!
£45 for micrdermabrasion and £65 for resurfacing peels
Fat on my belly that simply won't shift
Q - I've had 2 children and despite regular gym and healthy eating I simply can't shift that "mummy tummy". Is there a solution without surgery?
A – Thankfully yes there is a solution! 3D Lipo uses 3 technologies to lose that paunch. Cryo freeze literally freezes the fat cells which destroys around 30% in just one session and permanently. Cavitation uses ultrasound to literally pop fat cells losing cm’s on each treatment. Finish off with some RF skin tightening to restore firmness to the area.
We’d recommend a freeze followed by 4 weekly sessions of Cavitation and RF for results in just 6-8 weeks that last. £250 for freeze, £75 for Cavitation and RF sessions but watch out for our special offers on Facebook or website.
I hate my jowls!
Q - I really hate the lower part of my face where the skin is loose and giving me jowls which really ages me. I don't want to go under the knife so is there a non surgical solution?
A – Yes! Radio frequency is a pain free treatment that puts heat deep in the skin the stimulate new collagen growth and tighten the jaw-line. This treatment has become one of our most popular treatments because clients just love the results for what feels like a nice facial!
Clinically proven to tighten skin, 8 sessions are required weekly to gradually kick start your own collagen growth from the first treatment and carries on working for weeks after the treatment to give a sharper contour to the jaw-line and banish those jowls with results lasting around 2 years. From £75 per session and packages offer even better value. No facial will ever work like this will.
