There has been a big upsurge in people having cosmetic treatments in the last few years. People are really defying the ageing process nowadays by having treatments that were not available in our parents years.. sadly they had to rely on 'Ponds Cream'. Well 40 has truly become the new 30 and everyone is trying to keep it that way!
Botox is an easy one, it takes ten minutes to do and within 3 to 7 days you look smoother and fresher, it really is a no brainer for a youthful look and is not obvious to your friends and family. Our clients tell us that their friends think they have changed their hairstyle slightly or have used different make up... they just can't put their finger on what the difference is.
As we age, or experience menopause our collagen begins to deplete so we dont get a quick turnover of skin renewal which leads to damaged and wrinkled skin. But there are so many treatments available for this.
We have a variety of Dermal fillers for volume loss, which is sadly another problem with ageing.
The cheeks and jowls can be volumised and lifted giving an instant rejuvenating appearance.
We have fillers that inject moisture into the skin to give you back that lovely hydrated skin of bygone years!
Lips thin with age and can be plumped back up in a matter of minutes, giving you back that lucious pout!
We always think of the skin as the canvas of the face, and that should always be addressed first. There is no point in giving cheeks and lips if the skin is looking tired and old. We can use lasers for skin rejuvenation, a different Co2 laser to take the old top layers of your skin off, to reveal younger , more youthful skin underneath. This laser also diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and rids you of age spots.
We have a variety of Mesotherapy treatments that can brighten and hydrate your skin and really freshen you up.
So when you look in the mirror in the mornings you don't have to hate what you see, there is a treatment for everybody and combination treatments will get you looking the best you can be.

Deep hollows under the eyes can be so aging and leave you looking like you haven't slept in weeks.
The eyes are the first thing people notice about you when they look at you 'eyes being the window to your face'!
No amount of eye creams are going to help with hollows or dark shadows, usually make up is the only thing that will disguise them...and this is generally not an option for most men!
There are a lot of sophisticated dermal fillers available now that can be injected into tear troughs giving an instant plumping effect of the hollows.
We use Teosyal Redensity for eyes which also has clever light reflecting technology which masks the dark shadowing under the eye.
This treatment takes 20 to 30 minutes and results are instant. There is minimal downtime, although you might experience a little bruising as the skin under the eye is very delicate.
Compared to having a Blephroplasty, tear trough treatment is a fraction of the cost. Bleph's start at around £3000 and you have the inconvenience of surgery, and the downtime and bruising that comes with that procedure.
Tear trough treatment is suitable for most clients, but when you come for consultation, your requirements will be discussed and very rarely surgery will be the only answer.
The dermal filler we use are non animal based and are very safe to use, with over 2 million used worldwide in 2014 alone.
This young lady below had quite deep hollows under her eyes, just look at the difference after 30 minutes work!
This client came for dark shadowing under the eyes, which is quite common in darker and Asian skintones.
This lady had quite deep hollows under her eyes with almost a bruised effect look, having tear trough treatment has completely freshened up her face!

This lady who travelled up from London had lip fillers at a Harley Street clinic but was not too impressed with the outcome. She wanted a more balanced look.
By using a combination of lip enhancement and augmentation to the upper and lower lip a balanced look was obtained...making her lips look natural and lucious! The results below are after 1ml of Teosyl Kiss.
This following lady has with the aging process developed thin lips. The upper lip is assymetrical.
She has never had any lip filler treatment in the past.
She now has more fullness to her lips.
This is a staged procedure as she is keen to have more fullness to her lips and will be returning in four weeks to have another 1ml lip filler.
We always advise our clients to start with 1ml of lip filler, if further lip enhancement/augmentation requires a further syringe, it is usually given after 2 to 4 weeks to allow the lips to settle from the 1st treatment.

Vaser Lipo is the number one procedure for fat removal. It is performed under local aneasthetic, so you are wide awake and chatting throughout. It can be done under twilight sedation, but this generally bumps the cost up as an aneasthetist has to be present. Most clients opt for Vaser Lipo as it a safer way of having lipo that doesn't involve being put to sleep.
You can go home the same day and get on with your life, no hospital stays and no big downtime as for traditional lipo.
We are really busy at the moment as everyone is preparing for Summer holidays and that 'beach body'. But the vast majority of clients are still the gym bunnies who just can not rid themselves of little areas of fat that will just not shift!
The big trend with the guys is to go for Hi Def, the six pack look. For the little extra the Hi Def costs compared to basic fat removal, it really is a no brainer!
Hi Def is great for people who are within their BMI or who can only pinch an inch or two. Once the six pack is carved out the sky is the limit once the client hits the gym and further enhances their result.
This young man was one of many that travel to us from London after reading reviews on the clinic and Dr Bassi. He wanted rid of his little paunch and a tad more definition. He had the procedure in Nottingham and a couple of weeks later while we were in London performing procedures, we reviewed him there. He had been following his post op care religiously and having massages to keep the swelling down...and was starting to look pretty good.
Full results will be seen by 3 months as with Vaser the skin continues to tighten up until that point.
This second client also travelled from London for his procedure. As you can see, Vaser has made a massive difference to his body shape. He was quite chunky and now has a more athletic look. Needless to say he is very happy. He has kept in touch and the 'selfie' he sent us shows us a much more confident stance and a great result!
