Rosacea Laser Treatment - Nottingham, Derby , Mansfield and Chesterfield.

Living with a skin condition can be painful. It is often progressive, embarrassing and uncomfortable for the sufferer. Many individuals with skin disorders experience emotional effects such as isolation, self-esteem issues and sometimes even depression.

Rosacea, or acne rosacea, is a skin disorder leading to redness and pimples on the nose, forehead, cheekbones, and chin. In some cases, rosacea may also occur on the neck, chest, scalp or ears. The inflamed pimples and redness of rosacea can look a great deal like acne but blackheads are almost never present. One of the first signs of rosacea is the tendency to flush or blush easily.

Rosacea is considered one of the most common skin disorders with a characteristic flushing that comes and goes. It is a condition in which certain facial blood vessels enlarge, giving the cheeks and nose a flushed appearance. It is a chronic and potentially life-disruptive disorder and is often characterized by flare-ups and remissions.

Rosacea can mimic other skin conditions, including acne and sunburn, earning it the nickname the great pretender. Celebrity sufferers of rosacea include Princess Diana, Prince's William and Harry, Cameron Diaz, Bill Clinton and Sam Smith.

Many have observed that the condition typically begins at any time between the ages of 30 and 50 and it is likely to affect people who have previously suffered from acne or severe acne.

Some people are more likely than others to get rosacea, but anyone can get this skin disease. There are strong signs that ethnicity is a factor in the potential to develop rosacea. People from Celtic or Scandinavian ancestry who have lighter skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes are particularly susceptible. Rosacea has often been called the "Curse of the Celts"

There is evidence to suggest that rosacea may be inherited and sufferers are likely to have someone in their family tree with rosacea. People of all colours can get rosaceaIt is said that women are three times more likely than men to get rosacea, particularly during the menopause. Hot flushes are one of the most common symptoms of menopause and some women find that they can also trigger rosacea for the first time. Unfortunately symptoms can persist after the menopause too.

Women, however, are not as likely as men to get severe rosacea.
Rosacea's effect on men shouldn’t be overlooked, especially in matters of the nose. In men, the nose is primarily affected and the nose may become large and disfigured (this is known as  Rhinophyma)

Primary Signs of Rosacea are :

A lot of people with rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing. This facial redness may come and go, and is often the earliest sign of the disorder.

Persistent Redness
Persistent facial redness is the most common individual sign of rosacea, and may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.

Bumps and Pimples
Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop. While these may resemble acne, blackheads are absent and burning or stinging may occur.

Visible Blood Vessels
In many people with rosacea, small blood vessels (spider veins) become visible on the skin.

At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic, rosacea can be successfully treated using the most advanced laser technology.
We have achieved astounding results as our before and after photo's show.
Before and after treatment

The laser treatment usually takes between 45 minutes to an hour with our clients experiencing only minimal discomfort and maybe a slight stinging sensation as the laser pulses are administered.

Four to six treatments are recommended, spaced three to four weeks apart.
Come for a consultation and see what we can do for you.
You will be delighted with the results.

Laser Hair Removal - Nottingham, Derby , Mansfield and Chesterfield.

Laser Hair Removal

We all have some unwanted hair somewhere on our bodies which causes us embarrassment. It can sometimes take a severe toll on our self esteem and also on our social lives.
Especially when it appears on places that are usually not deemed to be 'feminine'

Shaving, threading, bleaching, plucking, depilatory cream and waxing are all time consuming, and what is worse is that these results are only temporary.
Electrolysis can permanently remove hair but is an extremely slow, drawn out and painful method and worryingly can sometimes result in scarring.

Perhaps this is why so many people, women and men, are beginning to turn to Laser Hair Removal as a more permanent solution.

Using Laser Hair Removal, hair can be removed almost permanently from the :

Upper Lip.   Now, I have absolutely nothing against a nice moustache, just not on a woman ! A hairy lip seems to be more noticeable on dark haired ladies, but whether fair or dark, we all find it embarrassing.

Chin.   Women despair when a chin hair appears. They can sprout on young, or older ladies. They promptly get plucked out but as time progresses another one inevitably grows in it's place ! The only problem is that when they grow back, they seem to come back thicker.

Forearms.   Strappy tops and sleeveless dresses are not really a great idea when you have hairy forearms like Chewbacca ! Accessorising is also a bit dodgy when bracelets tug on your arm hair. Even technology is against hairy arms - the Apple watch has had sensors removed after arm hair interfered with it's new features !

Underarms.    Hairy underarms are at present having a mainstream moment, what with singer Miley Cyrus and actress Jemima Kirke showing off their armpit growth on Instagram and YouTube.
And who can forget the media outrage when Julia Roberts revealed her hairy armpits on the red carpet at her film premier a few years ago ?
In most cultures, hairy underarms on ladies are considered an unhygienic and unpleasant sight and for the majority of us everyday people, we would sooner be sporting hair free pits !

Legs.   Hairy legs ! Who needs them. In winter at least we can hide them under trousers and tights. But come summer and it's time for the yearly ritual of unveiling the legs and we all want to get our legs out in the sunshine and on the beach.
Hair free legs are a must if you are applying fake tan, for a smooth, even application.

Bikini line.   Being caught out with an untrimmed bikini line is a woman's worst nightmare. With it being such a delicate area, care is needed in the hair removal treatment. Shaving can result in rashes and bumps and waxing can irritate the skin and cause little 'chicken skin' bumps around the hair follicles.

Back.   This affects men and some women. Of all the places that the body sprouts hair, for men the back is probably the most universally despised. It seems that for some ladies chest hair can be considered sexy but a sweater-full of back hair is definitely not !

Laser Hair Removal is a very popular method of permanent hair reduction with women, and more increasingly with men and it is a very popular treatment at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic.
Laser energy is used which causes damage to the hair follicles which in turn stops the growth of new hair in the damaged follicle.

So why not get yourself ready for next Summer? No more plucking, waxing, bleaching or threading. Just imagine the time you will save !

Botox - Nottingham, Derby ,Mansfield and Chesterfield


It is said that us women look at our self in the mirror at least eight times a day.
Reasons include checking our make-up is still in place , any mascara smudges under the eyes,  lipstick on your teeth ? Maybe to check the development of a spot, but mostly we check out our reflection for a sense of reassurance.

Statistically, women begin to show signs of facial ageing around the age of  25.
The first signs of ageing in women are fine lines around the eyes and around the mouth. The “number elevens” the two frown lines between the eyebrows are common too.

There are many ways our faces seem to look older than our years ; sometimes it's bad luck with our genes, smoking lines at the mouth,  or over exposure of the sun, all these things give us more lines than the norm.

Just think of your wrinkles in the same way as a bruise.  If a bruise is being continually banged then it doesn’t get a chance to go,  just as skin which is regularly being creased in the same place, doesn’t get a chance to smooth out.  Lines and wrinkles are formed by muscle movements like scowling, squinting and the raising of eyebrows. In time these creases becomes permanent.
These are the areas where Botox can help.

Many people are concerned that they will end up with "a frozen face" - that rabbit caught in the headlights look that the media seems to consider synonymous with Botox treatment.
Here at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic all our Botox treatments are performed by our cosmetic doctor,  Dr Bassi, who is trained in basic and advanced Botox techniques.

The actual procedure takes about 20 minutes and no anaesthetic is required.
Botox is injected with a very fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. Botox usually takes effect within 3 to 7 days after it is injected.
The end result is that we don’t frown as much or crinkle our eyes when we are smiling.
Botox often lasts from three to four months. The lines and wrinkles may appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.

We specialise in giving a soft natural look to your face and each Botox treatment is customised specifically for you and your needs.
So put yourself in our hands and watch crows feet disappear around the eyes, along with those irritating lines and wrinkles around your forehead.

Selston Cosmetic Clinic - we have the technology and expertise of Harley Street at competitive, friendly village prices !

Vaser Lipo Female Abs - Before and After - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Vaser Lipo - Female Abs

Are you fed up with opening up newspapers and magazines and seeing pop stars posing on the beach, seeing toned gym selfies on Instagram or celebrities in skimpy dresses in photo's posted on Twitter or Facebook ?

The public are constantly bombarded with images of these honed and toned stars, and then believe that their own stomachs just don't measure up.
Everyone has body hang-ups and insecurities - even the most famous celebrities you can imagine !
So us mere mortals can be assured we are not alone in our worrying.

We would be living in an ideal world if we could all look in the mirror, look at our reflection and actually like what we see.
Sometimes, just being moderately satisfied would be an achievement !


Everyone, at some time or another, wishes for a better body appearance. A trimmer tummy, thinner thighs, no double chin or a smaller bum...... imagine the confidence and improved self-esteem you would gain by checking out a new you in your mirror !

Vaser Lipo is a device that uses ultrasound waves to shake loose fat cells, which are then removed using a suction cannula.
It is a really good way to slim and contour your body to exactly the way that you want it.

Vaser Lipo is much gentler and much more precise than traditional liposuction. It is a good way of removing fat from localised stubborn areas that seem to be resistant to diet and exercise.

Most women don't want a six pack, but would prefer the muscles along the borders of the stomach to be more defined, from the bust down to the groin, without the horizontal lines.

This young lady came to see us at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic for Vaser Lipo  to help streamline her abs.

A few weeks after her procedure, as you can see in the photo's, she was transformed and she was absolutely thrilled !

 Her new shape was a lot more streamlined and sleek. And as it takes a few months to get the final results, she will continue to look better and better !
So, let us help to get your body back into shape, achieving good definition by removing that stubborn fat that will simply not go away !
Selston Cosmetic Clinic in Nottingham was one of the first clinics to pioneer the vaser lipo procedure in the UK.
We have over 9 years experience using this technology and Dr Bassi has performed over 1500 procedures.
So come to see us for a consultation where it is possible for you to have an afternoon treatment where we can easily treat those persistent fatty areas of your body.
Vaser Lipo is an effective solution for creating a flat tummy, giving you abs that you never knew you had !

Perfect Lips using Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Searching for perfect lips ?

Unfortunately, not everyone is born with luscious lips, but if you are looking to improve your pout, then lip filler can give you what the gene pool didn't.

Just think of certain celebrities who have lips us lesser mortals can only dream of.
Lips come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes :

Full Lips ......  such as those belonging to Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansonn. Full and sensuous, both on the upper and lower lips which tend to be symmetrical.

Wide Lips......Plump, but not too full, which Julia Roberts and Anne Hathaway are blessed to possess.

Bow Lips...... Reece Witherspoon and Taylor Swift have the double curve of the upper lip, which is said to resemble the bow of Cupid, the Roman God of Love.

Round Lips ...... as sported by Drew Barrymore are small but full with a heart shape centre top lip.

Some lip styles, which some people actually pay good money to achieve are :

The infamous Duck Lip which is a top lip that sticks out more than the bottom lip, making it curl up unnaturally. Just think of Katie Price at her most plastic !

A Trout Pout........ which is a lip that is so full of lip filler that it no longer has a cupid's bow. The top lip has become a semicircle and looks as though the lips have been turned upside down. Poor old Leslie Ash !

No two ways about it - they both look terrible !!

The job of a good cosmetic doctor is not just  to inject whatever the patient requests, but to assess, discuss and decide on what the best look is.

Come to us for a consultation and together we can decide on the best look for your lips.

At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic Dr Bassi has performed thousands of injectable dermal lip filler treatments and has over 10 years experience as a specialist cosmetic practitioner.
Our clinic is in Nottingham, off junction 27 on the M1.
Ideal for the Midlands, Nottinghamshire, Mansfield and Chesterfield.

We are all individual and unique. At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic we will give you our undivided attention to fill your needs and give you the result which is specific to you.

Vaser Liposuction .... Gynaecomastia - Nottingham and London.

Vaser Liposuction .... Gynaecomastia -  Nottingham and London.

Traditionally, men should open doors for a lady, offer their seat to an old dear on a packed bus and never ever be late for a first date !
And what men should never never do,  is have a bigger chest than the fairer sex !!!

Boys, imagine the scene - you're out on a date with your new hot girlfriend. The restaurant you chose was the new one just opened and is owned by a celebrity chef. The food and drink were to die for. Expensive..... but she was worth it.
And now for coffee back at hers !!
After smooching on the sofa for a while, the buttons are slowly being undone. Your shirt is open and as the kiss ends, she opens her eyes...... and they slowly widen ! 
She's thinking "OMG ! He's got bigger boobs than me "

This scenario could be seen as a nightmare, but, and it is a big but, it is something that can be fixed. You would probably be surprised to discover the number of men who also have this particular problem. Men, you are definitely not on your own !

We at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic have had very successful results with treating man boobs (the medical name is gynocaemastia) with Vaser Liposuction. We offer a bespoke service to all our clients, whatever their cosmetic medical need.

For men, having man boobs can be a source of embarrassment, lead to a loss of confidence and make them feel utterly miserable.
We had a young man come for a consultation at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic with this very problem. 

He decided to have the procedure and as you can see with the before and after photo's the results were great.

Our client was so happy after Dr Bassi performed the Vaser Liposuction at our Nottingham clinic. And as a result he now feels more self confident and self-assured.

The Selston Cosmetic Clinic is in a great location, just 10 minutes away from junction 27 on the M1.
Great for the Midlands, Nottinghamshire, Mansfield and Chesterfield.

PDO Threadlifts the Non-Surgical Facelift - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Have you arrived at that age where the profile of your face has suddenly become a little blurry?
Where the strong definition of your features are not so sharp. As we age we lose our cheekbones, they tend to travel down our face.. as the saying goes 'everything is going south'. This results in our jawline becoming saggy and the old turkey neck appearing....sounds attractive doesn't it!!!

Well, what options can we take to rectify this?

1. We can go for a facelift....this is going to be a painful and costly experience with a good deal of down time. You also have to think of the psychology with this option  with having to undergo a general anesthetic.. is it worth the risk for something cosmetic?

2. We can use Dermal Fillers to add volume, create cheekbones and give the skin a gentle lift. This has always been a good option for people not wanting a surgical procedure. Dermal fillers last up to one year depending on lifestyle... if you party hard, they might last a lot less.  Dermal fillers give an instant result and you can return to work the next day with no one the wiser, just curious to know how you look so fresh and rejuvenated!

3. Another weapon in our armoury are PDO threads! We have been using these now for over a year and what a difference they make!
They can be a stand alone treatment or used in conjunction with Botox and fillers to get a fantastic result.

The threads are placed under the skin, (which has been numbed with local anesthetic) in strategic places forming a matrix of threads that will lift and rejuvenate the skin.
Some threads are so fine they are like hairs, the stronger threads are thicker and have small barbs on them that will attach to the skin and give a good lifting result.

These threads have been used for years in open heart surgery and over the months will gradually dissolve. While the threads remain under the skin, they cause collagen to form by stimulating the fibroblasts. This will also improve skin tone and radiance.

The procedure is almost painless with little downtime. You might experience the odd bruise, but these are easily coverable with light make up.

PDO threads can be used,

  • Horizontal and vertical forehead wrinkles
  • Forehead lift
  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Lower eyelid - bags under the eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Naso-labial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Jaw line
  • Creased cheeks.

So, there are a few options open to us, everything doesn't have to go south.. with a little help from Dr Bassi we can get you looking the best you can :)

Vaser Hi Def - Male Abdomen. Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Vaser Hi Def for Male Abdomen.

Just imagine. You've done all the hard work and you've lost the weight...... but you still haven't got the exact look you were after. Something is missing. 
You are fitter, slimmer, healthier and almost have the look you were after. Almost.

Sometimes diets, eating healthily and spending hours working out at the gym are, sadly and infuriatingly, just not enough.

Sure, all that effort you have made so far helps and is a great start to help you achieve the new you.

Unfortunately, these days not that many of us have the time to spend in the gym putting in all those hours needed to maintain your new shape and keep it looking in peak condition. This can affect confidence and self esteem, even for those who are fit and healthy as sometimes, no matter how much gym work is done, these stubborn areas of fat can linger.

Sometimes a little extra help is needed and that is where the Selston Cosmetic Clinic can help.
Vaser Hi Def is one of the most advanced forms of Vaser Lipo. Shadows and curves are created to give the impression of muscular definition to give the body shape of someone who has been going to the gym regularly for a number of years.

Men strive to achieve an athletic look with diet and exercise but have stubborn areas of fat that just do not shift.

Vaser Hi Def is not a substitute for weight loss, and works best on men who are reasonably fit and may have moderate amounts of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. It helps to achieve an athletic look which is pleasing to the eye and meets the expectations of todays modern society….of what is beautiful and sexy.

Vaser Hi Def works by targeting the superficial layer of fat that sits directly over your muscles with unique ultrasound energy probes.

Recently at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic we had a client who needed our help.
He had lost weight and had put in the hours at the gym. Unfortunately after months of hard work it was obvious to him that he just couldn't achieve the definition on his abdomen that he was hoping for.
Dr Bassi to the rescue !

Vaser Hi Def is a body sculpting fat reduction procedure used at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic which as well as removing fat cells and tightening the skin allows our skilled and experienced cosmetic physician to contour the treatment area to produce the look you are hoping to achieve.

As our before and after photo's show, Vaser Hi Def gave our patient a better result than he had thought possible and a confidence in his new body that he had previously lacked. He found the procedure quick, easy and not at all uncomfortable, which he didn’t expect, ultimately making his whole experience with us that much more enjoyable.

The Vaser Lipo Liposuction procedure is now well established in the U.K and the Selston Cosmetic Clinic was one of the first clinics to pioneer this procedure in the U.K.
We have over 9 years experience using this technology and have performed over 15OO procedures.
Selston Cosmetic Clinic is located within the modern purpose built health care complex in Selston, Nottingham. It is an ideal location in the Midlands just off junction 27 on the M1, serving Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield, Chesterfield & Sheffield.

Cheap Botox is to be avoided - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield


Everybody loves a party !
Ann Summers, Avon or pamper parties are still all the rage. And so it seems are cheap botox parties. But at what cost ?

It's amazing to find that ladies, and men, are putting themselves in the hands of any "beauty professional" that can offer a quick cheap facial fix !

Cheap Botox parties held at home and when either self injecting or being administered by inexperienced hands can quite easily go terribly wrong. When it's not injected properly, or in exactly the right place, you could end up paralysing the wrong muscles, or be left with droopy eyelids and eyebrows, or in the worst case scenario you could even paralyse the muscles that move your eyeball which will give you problems with your eyesight.

A Botox party- a social event with alcohol and refreshments at a friend’s home, might seem like a relaxing and fun way to try this treatment, perhaps at a discounted price. However, there are safety measures required for Botox such as: informed consent, keeping a detailed medical record, sterile
injection procedure, and continued refrigeration of Botox which may not be in place at home parties.

 The risk of infection when administered by an untrained person is higher than with a fully trained provider. If and when problems arise afterwards there is no access to follow up care. The treatment of administering Botox in a non medical setting is putting people at risk...... and the risks greatly outweigh the benefits.

Botox, made popular by a vast number of celebrities who have admitted using it, is a licensed medicine. Administering it is an art that requires a high level of expertise along with a talent for the craft. Don’t let price be your guide. If you see an offer for a treatment that is much less than the standard fee, it is likely that compromises are being made either in the skill of the provider, the quality of the product or the amount being used.

Any medical procedure should be done in an established medical office. Our advice…save your parties and drinking games for the weekends and visit Selston Cosmetic Clinic for any cosmetic treatment. Call now for an appointment and find out what we can offer you. Be safe - put your face in our hands !

Selston Cosmetic Clinic is based in Nottingham in the East Midlands.

Easy access for Nottinghamshire, Derby, Chesterfield and Mansfield. We are just off Junction 27 on the M1.
When you look in the mirror, you want to see a face you are proud of.

Can you put a price on that?

Tear Troughs - Treatment using Dermal Fillers - Nottingham Derby Mansfield and Chesterfield

When you look at someone for the first time, what is the first feature you notice ?

Obviously the eyes.

As well as being the windows to the soul, the eyes are also the windows to, well, your age. In fact, studies have shown that when strangers are asked to judge how old a person is, the eye area is one of the biggest influences.

We consider lots of things to keep our eyes looking youthful. To help to camouflage ageing we use creams, concealers, serums, cucumber slices and even tea-bags !

As we age, one of the changes we can expect to notice are the dark circles and deepening of the hollows below your eyes. The Naso-jugal groove also known as the Tear Trough occurs due to the thinning of the overlying skin and soft tissue over the bony orbital rim and happens as a consequence of the ageing process, genetics or also can be caused by sun damage.

Tear troughs run from the nose side of each eye in an arc under the lower eyelid. Most people complain of a tired looking appearance due to the darkness caused by the shadow. Troughs are caused by loss of volume in the tissue under the eye and above the cheek and are often seem worse in appearance when we are tired or dehydrated.

The Tear Troughs can be treated using either dermal fillers or PDO Threads.

Selston Cosmetic Clinic uses Teosyl Redensity II dermal fillers. This treatment involves injecting filler into the under eye area. This fills out the hollows and lines under the eyes and helps to mask dark circles with it's light reflecting technology.

The tear trough procedure takes place in our clinic, and takes less than an hour of your time. Teosyl Redensity II will rejuvenate tired looking eyes to create a more youthful appearance that lasts up to twelve months.

PDO threads are dissolvable threads which are introduced into the skin with a very fine needle. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, it lifts tissue and improves skin texture. PDO Thread treatment can be used on a number of areas : tear troughs, sagging jowls and drooping upper eyebrows. The procedure takes less than an hour and lasts between 12 / 18 months

So for a younger, fresher and healthier look call The Selston Cosmetic Clinic for more information and book a consultation with Dr Bassi.
