Rejuvenate Your Face with a Vampire Face Lift - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Our skin looks is often the biggest indicator to show how we're ageing. As well as acquiring fine lines, as we get older, the skin can take on a grey tone making the face look tired, and too much sun exposure and acne scars can make the skin look worn. As we age, our skin will lose its youth glow because the blood supply to our face diminishes, causing our skin to lose its colour, making it look dull. 

Treatment areas for PRP
Over time the skin's texture becomes less smooth, the delicate skin beneath the eyes becomes thinner and we often gain fine lines and wrinkles. Platelet rich Plasma Therapy, (PRP) also called a vampire facelift is a treatment which uses the natural ingredients of your blood to rejuvenate tired and ageing skin.

Non-surgical vampire facelift treatment is ideal for:
  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
  • Signs of ageing on the hands
  • Minimising lines around the mouth
  • Smoothing wrinkles across the nose
  • Softening wrinkles and frown lines
  • Dull skin due to less blood flow
  • Smooth and uneven skin texture
  • Tighten sagging or loose skin
  • Reducing acne scarring
PRP is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses the growth factors in your blood to improve the texture and tone of your skin. During the treatment a small amount of blood gets extracted and is then treated in a centrifuge to harvest the platelet rich plasma. It's then re-injected into the required treatment area, where it will stimulate new collagen formation, restoring volume to the skin, filling out fine lines and wrinkles, and encouraging the body to repair the ageing skin from the inside out.

Benefits of skin rejuvenation with PRP:
  • Overall rejuvenation for the skin
  • Any allergic reaction is minimal, as PRP is a natural cosmetic treatment derived from your own body
  • It's highly recommended because of its natural elements
  • It gives dull, dry and loose skin new life by stimulating collagen formation and elastin
  • Results from a PRP treatment are long-lasting and can last for up to two years

A vampire facelift is great skin rejuvenating option because as the blood is the patient's own, so there aren't any foreign materials injected and this lowers any risk of allergies and infections. This procedure has a fast healing time and you'll only experience minimal bruising and slight swelling.

This treatment can promote skin rejuvenation especially around the eyes, reducing the lines and wrinkles. It's ideal for the hands, which often show signs of ageing sooner than other areas of the body, and on the neck and chest. The treatment simply helps rejuvenate the skin, restoring volume and collagen formation.

Get a Better Skin Tone & Texture with Microdermabrasion - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Our skin becomes vulnerable to a fair amount of damage throughout the years, some things like injury scars, sun damage and pock marks left over from acne, as well as the loss of collagen and elastin due to general ageing, and all these things can make the skin start to look tired and worn.

Skin damage builds up and over time and it can cause your skin texture to become uneven, the skin's surface can show scars and can even start to look discoloured. You can vastly improve your skin by exfoliating, making the skin look softer, and giving it a more even surface, and this will help any cosmetic skin treatments to work better and will also provide a better base to apply your make-up on.

We can exfoliate the skin in different ways:

We can use a traditional exfoliating scrub twice a week. A facial scrub has tiny, sand-like particles which will smooth away any rough areas as you gently apply it, and this will remove any dead skin cells on your skin and uncover new ones, leaving your skin feeling soft and looking flawless.

Liquid exfoliators use acid to take away the dead skin, dissolving the glue-like substance that bonds the dead skin cells. These acid based products clean deep within the pores and some of them can boost hydration, cell turnover and collagen production. The skin naturally sheds cells daily, however, by applying face products and make-up every day means we sometimes halt this process, but using acids every day can copy the natural process.

Microdermabrasion treatment at a cosmetic clinic can go more in-depth, going deeper than your typical facial scrub. The treatment uses medical grade crystals that we vacuum across the outer surface of the skin at a high speed, using a hand-held device. The superfine crystals will smooth away fine lines, and reduce pigment irregularities on the surface of the skin, stimulating an increase in cell turnover, and giving you a brightness to your complexion.

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular cosmetic medical procedures performed today. It's an ideal treatment for the skin because it uses non-allergenic crystals, which is good for any skin that's sensitive to chemicals. Microdermabrasion is a safe non-surgical treatment which doesn't present any risks when it's performed by a qualified practitioner. This treatment can easily be done in a lunchtime and is one which will allow you to return to your normal activities on the same day

Enhance Your Nose Using Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Our noses are one of the main focal points of our face, making any bumps, dents and kinks instantly noticeable. Some people are happy in their own skin and think this gives their face character and individuality, but there are also those who do mind having an imperfect nose. So if your nose doesn't make you happy, there are ways to correct and enhance it non-surgically.

Whether you have an uneven or bumpy nose because of an accident, maybe you've broken your nose in a sports injury or maybe you were just born with it, if it's causing you concern, then a non-invasive nose job, or liquid nose job as it's sometimes called, can give you the nose you've always wanted.

Dermal filler treatment on the nose:
  • Treatment on the nose takes about one hour
  • It's possible to reshape and enhance the nose in various ways
  • Results are temporary and can easily be altered
  • Minimally painless procedure, using topical numbing cream before the injections
  • Minimal swelling
  • Normal activities can resume the next day
  • The cost is less than surgical rhinoplasty
  • Results can last for up to a year
Precisely placed filler injections can plump up the area around the bump and straightening the nose, and by making the nose look straighter, the dermal filler treatment can make the nose appear smaller. Other improvements achieved with fillers include smoothing small indentations, creating a straighter looking nasal bridge and increasing the height and definition, and lifting a drooping nose tip. Dermal fillers are not permanent and are naturally broken down and dispersed into your the body over time. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic treatment only, it can't make the size of the nose smaller, or correct problems with the nose, such as breathing difficulties.

There will only be minimal discomfort during the non-surgical nose job, as numbing cream gets applied before the treatment, and most dermal fillers also contain a local anaesthetic, which means you should only feel a light sting on your skin during the injection procedure. Nose enhancement treatments are a walk in, walk out treatment which are usually completed within the hour. The treatment is suitable for those that aren't ready for a permanent invasive surgical procedure and those who aren't totally sure about the results they are looking for.

Contour the Body with Vaser Lipo Treatment - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Worries and insecurities about our body can make us feel disheartened, and can even give us a negative body image, so a healthy, active lifestyle is essential to get our body fit and into the shape we want. Sometimes though, it might feel we're not getting anywhere, and this can make it hard to stay motivated. 

Vaser lipo is a powerful treatment, ideal to remove fat from large areas of the body, while being gentle enough to treat delicate areas; a versatile treatment that's designed to treat all areas of the body. Vaser helps to create better contours because the fat is liquefied before it's removed, meaning there's less damage to the surrounding tissue and minimal blood loss.

Popular areas for treatment include:
  • The waist or flanks (love handles)
  • Tummy and abs
  • Back bulges (bra fat)
  • Outer thighs (saddlebags)
  • Reshape and slim down the inner thighs
  • Man boobs
Vaser isn't a solution for weight loss, more a sculpting process, removing fat from the parts of the body that have a disproportionate amount of fat, smoothing out the body, creating curves and contours and enhancing your muscular definition. Once you've got your body into the shape you want, the more likely you are to work really hard to keep it that way. Vaser is a great way to enhance your appearance and self-confidence giving you a more defined silhouette. It targets fat reduction from specific parts of the body which are causing concern. 
  • Candidates for vaser lipo
  • People who have fat that's resistant to diet and exercise
  • Those who are reasonably fit and have moderate amounts of fat
  • People who want improved definition of muscles and better contouring of the body
  • Those with good abdominal muscle mass and tone
  • People with good skin elasticity and a small amount of visceral fat
  • Those who are generally in good health
  • Both men and women can benefit from vaser lipo

The procedure is minimally invasive, and you stay awake and comfortable throughout. Depending on how many  areas are being treated, the procedure can take as little as one hour or up to several hours. It's the best way to get rid of that last bit of unwanted fat, and sculpt and define the body. Clients will see an immediate result after the treatment; however the results will continue to improve. Any swelling usually subsides after four to six weeks, with the best result being seen after six months.

Remove Unwanted Hair with Laser Treatment - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Lots of women and men feel concerned about the excessive amount of hair they find growing on different parts of their body, however, there are a number of options available for them to consider if they want to remove this unwanted hair. They might consider different methods like; shaving, depilatory creams, waxing, plucking or electrolysis, but one of the most popular cosmetic procedures used today is Laser Hair Removal.

Shaving, waxing, threading and creams can turn into a time-consuming lifetime chore, and these treatments often cause annoying skin irritations, ranging from mild to severe, and they can last for days or weeks. These methods can cause cuts, nicks, redness, scales, bumps on the skin and ingrown hairs, making Laser treatment the best way to get rid of unwanted hair, as there are no ingrown hairs, no shaving rash and no excruciating ripping out of hairs.

You can have Laser treatment anywhere on the body, and the Laser machine can quickly and safely treat both small areas and large areas. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic our advanced Laser system uses a focused beam of light and heat which penetrates the hair follicle at its root to stop hair growth, but which won't harm the surrounding skin. The Laser has a cooled sapphire window on the Laser Scope to further protect and cool the surface of the skin, while still letting the Laser light heat the hair follicle beneath the skin.

Anyone with unwanted hair can benefit from Laser Hair Removal including:

* Those with an underlying medical condition which causes excess hair growth in women, especially on the face and arms. 

* People with dark hair can suffer from excess hair growth. Dark haired women may suffer from unwanted hair appearing on their upper lip, and the hair on the forearms can appear thick, due to its very dark colour. 

* Those who regularly remove hair as part of their everyday grooming routine.

* Men with excess chest hair and back hair can opt for Laser treatment, instead of painful waxing. 

Laser Hair Removal is the best way to get rid of unwanted hair on a long-term basis. Laser treatment will target the follicle, literally tackling the root of the problem. It's considered that Laser treatment is one of the most successful methods of hair removal invented, as it has a lasting and permanent effect, compared to other traditional hair removal methods.

Vaser Lipo Treatment at Selston Cosmetic Clinic - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Before undergoing any cosmetic procedures to remove unwanted fat, you should try to lose as much excess fat as you can. Eating healthily and exercising in the months before Vaser Lipo will make sure that you get the best results possible from your treatment. Before you have Vaser Lipo treatment you will need a consultation, where you'll be able to talk in detail to the doctor about why you want Vaser, which technique he'll use, the length of recovery time and your expected results.

The doctor who's doing your procedure will look at your body to see which areas you're unhappy with and he'll tell you what results you can realistically expect. At the consultation, you can ask to view the portfolio of his earlier Vaser clients, looking at the before and after photos so you can see for yourself the results he has already achieved, and the difference it's made to their bodies.

To prepare yourself and your body for Vaser Lipo treatment the doctor will give you a list of things for you to follow, to give you the best chance for amazing results:

It's a medical fact that smoking slows down blood flow to the skin, increasing the risk of circulation problems after Vaser treatment and this could affect your results. Ideally, it would be better to stop smoking cigarettes altogether, but if you can't manage to do so then it's advisable to quit smoking at least two months before your procedure. If you smoke it can cause poor wound healing, which could make your recovery time longer.

Medications can interfere with your body's blood clotting ability, so it's best to let the doctor know which tablets and supplements you're taking. At least two weeks before your Vaser Lipo treatment you should stop taking any cold and sinus medication, vitamin E tablets, nutritional supplements and non-steroidal inflammatory medication.

If you're having Vaser Lipo treatment on a large area then you should prepare in advance for your recovery time. After your treatment you'll need to arrange time off work, and make sure you put off any physically demanding responsibilities until your recovery is complete. At the start of your recovery, you might need to have someone on hand to give you some help.

Before your Vaser procedure make sure you stock up on the necessary post-procedure supplies, including pain relief medication, compression garments and bandages. If you are living alone you will need a good supply of food, toiletries and pain relief. You don't want to run out of supplies if there's nobody around to help replenish them.

Vaser Lipo is a form of body contouring, which sculpts the body to the desired look. In conjunction with a heathy diet and lifestyle, the results of Vaser are permanent and can last a lifetime.

Reduce Facial Lines & Wrinkles with Botox - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

These days most women are taking better care of their skin than ever before, and the only thing giving away their age are the fine lines and wrinkles on the face, resulting from sun damage, genetics or the simple passage of time. Every facial expression we make will make an impression on our skin, and as the skin around the eyes is so delicate, the constant movement means the overlying skin is repeatedly stretched and folded and eventually the lines will become permanent.

Our skin radiates light when we're young, but as we get older it accumulates damage, becomes dull and starts showing fine lines. Constant use of facial muscles when smiling, frowning and talking, as well as changes in your skin with age, will inevitably lead to the start of wrinkles which then get ingrained on your face.

Contraction of the underlying muscles on the face will cause the overlying skin to contort repeatedly, forming furrows and wrinkles on the skin. Fortunately this can easily be treated non-surgically with Botox, which can treat facial lines and wrinkles in a subtle and natural way, helping to restore the glow to our skin and youthfulness back on our face.

We use Botox for:
  • Smoothing wrinkles and folds
  • Forehead worry lines
  • Between the brows frown lines
  • Crows feet at the sides of the eyes
  • Vertical lines around the lips
  • Dimpling of the chin

Static wrinkles are lines that exist when your face is totally relaxed, staying there after you’ve finished making a facial expression. These lines aren't the best candidates for Botox treatment, as injections can soften these lines but not always get rid of them. Botox treatments are best for dynamic wrinkles which appear with facial expressions such as frowning. Facial wrinkles and lines can easily be softened without changing your overall appearance, resulting in a more relaxed, rested and rejuvenated appearance.

If you are considering having treatment, it's essential to choose a fully trained, qualified practitioner to inject the Botox into your face. A good practitioner is someone who has a good knowledge of facial anatomy and has performed facial aesthetics for several years. A face to face consultation is essential, so they can answer any questions while taking note of your aesthetic concerns, preferences and your desired results. The practitioner will also discuss the risks, which can include allergic reactions, bruising and minimal swelling.
