Semi-Permanent Make-Up at Selston - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Semi-permanent make-up is a cosmetic treatment that carefully applies pigment into the dermal layer of the skin, through a type of cosmetic tattooing. The pigment used in this treatment is a natural iron oxide. It's hypoallergenic and there are no fragrances, emollients or other added ingredients.

With semi-permanent make-up you can look your best, while putting in the least amount of effort. Having treatment stops you having to apply, reapply and remove make-up every day, and will always look as if it's been professionally applied.

Naturally shaped eyebrows can frame the face and accentuate the eyes, and you can get different looks by using different techniques. You can choose powdered eyebrows, micro-blading,  HD brows or you can even have a few hair strokes, to fill in eyebrow gaps.

Eyeliner/ Lash Liner
You can have Semi-permanent liner that will suit your eye colour and complement your natural features. The practitioner will draw liner on your eyes before the treatment, giving you an idea of how the finished result will look. You can opt for a thin subtle line, a heavily defined liner or maybe a flick at the edges that will add a sassy finish to this look.

Lip Liner and Blush
This treatment can emphasise, correct or define the lips and it can prevent lipstick bleeding. You can beautifully accentuate your lips with a colour wash, giving your lips an attractive soft and natural look. The lip blush involves defining the shape along the lip line before progressing down and into the lip, adding the pigment into your natural lip colour.

There are lots of reasons why people have semi-permanent make-up treatment:
* Some women have little time for applying cosmetics every day
* To rectify over plucked eye brows, thinning lips or dull eyes
* Some women have sensitive skin or are allergic to the ingredients in make-up
* Arthritis or painful shaky hands can make applying make-up difficult
* Those with sparse hair growth, or have hair loss due to illness or alopecia

There's usually minimal discomfort, but topical anaesthetic cream can greatly reduce any minor discomfort. After treatment, the pigment on the skin might look a bit darker than you asked for, but the colour will lighten by up to 30%.after a few days.

The results look very natural, making your features look more defined and although it varies with every person, the results usually last between three to five years and in some cases could be longer.

Vaser Lipo To Sculpt The Knees - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

It doesn't seem to matter that we eat a healthy diet and try to keep ourselves fit, we can sometimes find that there are areas of stubborn fat that annoyingly, just won't go away. Even when we exercise regularly, this won't always tone up the bits that are bothering us the most.

When we gain excess weight on our legs, it doesn't just settle on the outer and inner thighs, unfortunately it can also settle around the knees and this fat can cause sagging skin on the knees, even on those who are otherwise slim and toned. You don't actually need to have lots of excess body fat, in order for fat deposits to settle around the knees.

Having plump knees can affect not only our confidence, it can even influence our clothing choices, making us reluctant to show them off when wearing short skirts, shorts and swimwear. If someone is self-conscious about their knees because they look saggy, wrinkly or have excess fat above or below them, then Vaser Lipo treatment can successfully treat the problem.

Vaser treatment usually removes fat from the inner part of the knee, but it can also be taken from just above the knee. The doctor will make one or two small incisions during the treatment, and these are either hidden behind the knee or in the crease above the knee. The doctor can do the Vaser treatment either as a stand-alone procedure or do it while performing Lipo on other areas, such as the inner or outer thighs or the saddlebags. Traditionally, the knees have been a tricky area to treat when using surgical treatments, but fortunately, Vaser Lipo can treat delicate areas and is a safe and efficient method of resolving this problem, by removing the unwanted fat and precisely shaping the knees.

The knees can look unsightly due to a number of issues:
  • Genetics
  • Past damage 
  • A change in weight
  • Health conditions
Unlike traditional Liposuction, Vaser Lipo doesn't need large incisions and the recovery time is a lot shorter, due to less damage to the surrounding tissues and blood vessels. Vaser Lipo allows precision shaping for a much more natural-looking result. It's a gentle treatment for removing excess fat and the results are instant.  After Vaser treatment clients find that their confidence improves as they feel more toned and can wear different types of clothing.

An Eyebrow Lift Using Botox Injections - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

When we decide we need to combat signs of ageing, particularly wrinkles, there's no treatment more popular than Botox, but we can also use Botox injections to make changes to some facial features such as the eyebrows. Most of us want to look as good as we can, and a small amount of Botox can enhance our appearance by softening the signs of ageing, it can lift your brow while still making your face look natural. A highly arched eyebrow is a classic sign of youthful beauty.

One sign of facial ageing is the eyebrows, because their shape changes over time they can get a hooded look. A Botox brow lift involves injecting Botox into the muscles, into specific areas of the face. Muscle movement happens through the pushing and pulling of different muscles, and this is something that can easily be altered slightly to create natural looking eyebrows with a high arch.

As you get older your brow may drop or sag, but Botox treatments will allow you to lift the brow, giving your face a younger look and making you look less tired. A brow lift is a Botox injection treatment that can raise the skin tissues around the eyes and eyebrows, to raise the natural eyebrow arch. This treatment can also make the eyes look wider, resulting in a more youthful look. It's recommended that brow lifts are more suited to those with mild to moderate brow heaviness, due to low-hanging eyebrows or naturally drooping eyelids.

The Botox brow lift, or chemical lift, is a popular procedure for those who don't want to undergo invasive surgery. The treatment is ideal for all skin types, and those who have naturally drooping eyelids and low-hanging eyebrows may find it particularly effective. Injecting Botox into the brow will literally lift the skin tissues above and around the eyebrows, resulting in the natural eyebrow arch raising a few millimetres higher.

Botox is a non-surgical treatment, it has many benefits:
  • A safe, effective, tried and tested product
  • It's a relatively affordable cosmetic procedure
  • Treatment needs no downtime
  • When combined with fillers, it can give your whole face a more youthful, balanced look
  • Botox can treat chronic migraines, excessive underarm sweating and other conditions
  • Designed to give attractive, natural and understated results

Botox used in tandem with other injectable treatments can fully rejuvenate the entire face, reducing the wrinkles, plumping up the lips and replacing volume in the cheeks, which will all work together to soften the effects of ageing.

Laser Treatment for Spider Veins on the Legs - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

As we get older, it's possible that tiny blood vessels can become dilated and look as though they are close to the surface of the skin. Both our skin, and our veins become weakened with age, and this can cause spider veins to look more visible on ageing or mature skin. These veins are fine purple or red wavy lines and they're known as broken, thread or spider veins.

Lots of people suffer from spider veins on the legs, which are blood vessels that can appear on the thighs, calves and ankles. They get their name from the shape of the veins, some which are quite small, while others are more noticeable. Finding visible dilated or broken blood vessels on the legs, especially when they can easily be seen by other people, can affect our confidence and self-esteem.

Spider veins are more likely to appear on women than on men and they are normally found on the legs, but unfortunately they can also appear on the face, breasts and arms. People, especially women, who have thread veins on the face and legs can find them embarrassing or unsightly, and it can affect their self-confidence.

There's no obvious cause for why we get thread veins, they tend to develop as we age, with the skin and blood vessels become less elastic. Hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and the menopause can also provoke their development, as well as the elements; too much sunbathing, exposure to wind or extreme temperatures. Although you may not like the look of them, thread veins aren't dangerous, but they tend to become larger and increase in number over time. Most spider veins aren't painful but they can cause us embarrassment.

Spider veins are like varicose veins, but smaller and nearer to the surface of the skin but while there's surgery to treat the larger varicose veins, laser treatment can help with the smaller veins. The safest, most effective treatment for spider veins is laser treatment.

The benefits of laser treatment include:
*  A fast and safe way to eradicate the thread veins on the legs
*  Thread veins will only recur in a small percentage of cases
*  Laser treatment can help to restore your self-confidence
*  Ongoing improvements seen after each treatment

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, during the treatment a laser gets applied to the skin directly above the spider veins. The energy from the laser is preferentially absorbed by coloured tissues and the energy causes the spider veins to heat up and collapse. After treatment, the body slowly re-absorbs the veins.

Streamline Inner & Outer Thighs With Vaser Lipo - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

The inner and outer thighs can become a problem area for lots of women, making them feel uncomfortable about displaying their legs in public, but the legs are often key to a shapely figure. Lots of us have lumps and bumps on our outer thighs which can really knock our confidence when we want to wear smooth, tight-fitting clothes that show off our figure.

The thighs are a notorious area of the body that are prone to storing excess fat, making it tricky when trying to find a pair of trousers that will comfortably fit both the upper, and lower half of the legs. Women tend to store fat on their thighs, making it hard for them to get a toned, smooth silhouette, and although the legs can look relatively slim throughout, the inner and outer thighs might be out of proportion to the rest of the body.

Fat deposits sitting anywhere on the body can make any weight loss difficult to achieve and traditional weight loss methods sometimes aren't enough to get rid of small pockets of stubborn fat. Excess fat on the legs can make you feel uncomfortable, but when it comes to streamlining the body, there are techniques and treatments available to help you to reach your goals.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we can successfully remove stubborn localised pockets of fat, and improve the overall shape and contours of your thighs using Vaser Lipo. This treatment helps to create a natural silhouette that's suits the body and gives results that are dimple-free and symmetrical.

Vaser benefits:
  • Once Vaser removes the fat, it won't return in that area
  • It's a walk-in, walk-out procedure
  • Minimal downtime and minimal time needed off work
  • A specialised technique designed to minimise any discomfort and bruising
  • The procedure uses local anaesthetic
  • Transforms your legs in a single procedure
  • Good skin retraction is possible

Vaser Lipo uses waves of ultrasound to send vibrations through the targeted area. After an anaesthetic solution gets injected, the thin Vaser probe gets inserted into the treatment area, and ultrasound energy targets the fat cells just under the top layer of skin. This liquefies the fat cells, gently breaking them up, before they are suctioned out with a cannula. The tiny incisions into the treatment area are usually made in the natural creases of the skin making them virtually unnoticeable afterwards. 

With Vaser Lipo treatment it's possible to shape your legs however you like. The recovery times are short, and the pain during the procedure is minimal as it's performed in a safe, non-invasive way, that leaves everything but the fat cells untouched, and undamaged.

Lip Filler To Define Your Lips & Restore Lost Volume - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

When you feel that your lips don't quite fit in with the other features of your face, or maybe you think you would like a better lip shape, well, you are not alone. One part of the face which attracts lots of attention is the mouth area, most especially the lips. As we get older, our skin becomes thinner and has less definition, and this can cause the lips to shrink, making you feel that your lips have lost their natural pout.

Lots of people aren't happy with their lips. They may feel they aren't symmetrical, or maybe they want just want fuller lips to enhance their appearance. Lip enhancement generally involves outlining and defining the lip border and lip augmentation involves making the body of the lips fuller. Lip filler treatment can either use both of these processes, or just give definition or just add volume, the choice is yours.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic one of our expert practitioners Dr Bassi or Dr Keiron, will expertly inject the fillers to balance out the lips and give natural looking results. Lips can start out thin and barely noticeable, and change into a sensual fuller look after just one visit to the cosmetic clinic. Lip fillers can smooth out fine lines around the mouth, define the edges and enhance and balance your facial features, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Before any treatment you will need to talk to your cosmetic doctor. During your consultation you must make the doctor aware of your preferences and let them know the result you want to end up with after the treatment. You can always ask to see before and after photo's of the clinics previous work on clients who have had lip enhancements.

Lip filler treatments will:
  • Restore lost volume and shape
  • Give more symmetry to the facial features
  • Boost confidence in regard to their appearance

Dermal fillers can enhance the overall volume of the lips and by inserting the fillers around the lip edge, will help to improve the contour and shaping of the lips. We use hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers, which is a substance that's non animal based and is naturally found in the body.

At Selston, lip fillers are one of the most popular treatments, due to their ability to give you a fuller pout and give you back the lip volume you had when you were younger. So whether you wish to either, define your lips or restore lost volume by adding plumpness, then this treatment will definitely be the right one for you.

Slow Down Facial Ageing With Botox Injections - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

The signs of ageing can get you down, and seeing lines and wrinkles can knock your confidence and make you feel insecure when we start looking older. So if you're beginning to see an increase in wrinkles, or you're noticing fine lines on your face, or maybe you feel you just don't look as youthful and bright as you used to, then botox might be the answer to help reducing or eliminating those ageing wrinkles. 

Botox Treatment Before and After

Botox injections are one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments on the market, thanks to its safety and effectiveness. But we must always remember that despite Botox's popularity and its increasing use, the treatment is still a medical procedure, and only a fully trained and highly experienced cosmetic doctor or nurse practitioner should carry out this treatment.
Botox treatment can also be used for:
  • Over active frown
  • Crows feet, fine lines and wrinkles
  • Correcting lines from repeated facial expression and worry lines
  • An eye lift
  • Correcting uneven eyebrows
  • Tightening the jaw line
  • Correcting the downward corners at each side of the lips
  • Treating migraines
  • Treating hyperhidrosis (armpit sweating)
Always choose a highly trained cosmetic practitioner to inject your botox treatment, as they will have performed lots of botox treatments, have a large client base and will have lots of before and after photo's, and they will have reviews and recommendations of their work that you can look at.

At your consultation you will discuss what requirements you have, and what your expectations are. When botox is properly done, no-one will be able to tell that you've had any treatment, the injections will just leave your face looking relaxed and refreshed. By choosing the right cosmetic doctor to achieve your aim, your appearance will look much improved, but will still remain looking completely natural.

Botox brow lift

*  Always check that the practitioners qualifications are authentic
*  Don't book because of offers like two for the price of one, or introduce a friend and get a discount
*  Make sure you have treatment in a clinic which is clean
Be aware that the cheapest priced treatment won't always be the best
Look at their before and after photos to check what results they achieve
Check online to see reviews to get recommendations
*  Ask around for word of mouth reviews

Continuity is always a good idea, so for any treatment where you go back for top up's and more treatments, it's wise to use the same practitioner who knows what you want, what you are hoping to achieve and who knows your face.
