Oscar Winning Procedures - Botox - Lipo- PDO Threadlifts - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Well the 2016 Academy Awards are over for another year. The after-parties have ended and the Oscar statuettes taken home and put pride of place, either on the book shelf or in the loo. All the Oscar nominated actresses spend months of preparation beforehand, getting themselves ready for big events like the Academy Awards and they may well be breathing a sigh of relief now that it's over.

It's all fine and dandy to wear a beautiful gown from one of the top dress designers, but it's beneath the glamour where things really get interesting. Actresses endure many treatments and procedures to get them looking spectacular for the photographers as they walk up the red carpet, and by the worldwide coverage on TV and magazines as they accept their award. The Hollywood beauties need to look like winners at all times and it's a long, long road to be red-carpet-ready.

High-definition photography and social media means that actors now have every detail, good and bad, of their face and body appear in hundreds of photos in newspapers, magazines and on-line. As a result, the stakes for perfection have never been higher.

The Hollywood ladies are said to use these treatments and procedures, and luckily, most of the treatments can be used on us mere mortals too!

  • Before the Oscars, some stars have vitamin B12 shots injected straight into their blood stream to get a jolt of energy, helping them to cope with the long evening ahead.
  • Having your teeth whitened is a necessity for the red carpet look. Stars usually get professional teeth whitening treatments a few days before major events.
  • Stars in skimpy dresses won’t dare risk the camera catching any unwanted hair or stubble, so most will have laser hair removal treatments months before the awards show.  Celebrities most done area's, are the legs, bikini line, facial hairs, underarms and arms, all depending on what the gown is covering. Having all these little hairs removed helps the skin shine in photographs.

  • Lipo will take away those small pockets of fat on the tummy and hips, so there aren't any lumps and bumps showing in the skin-tight gown. It can tighten up the neck, giving definition and also take fat away from the upper arms, stopping those bingo wings from flapping.

  • To make the ladies glow on the red carpet, procedures such as facials, microdermabrasion, or chemical peels are used as sometimes, make-up just isn't enough!
  • Hollywood stars are no stranger to using Botox to smooth the skin and banish wrinkles, and injectable fillers can help to plump up lips and cheeks. A skilled cosmetic doctor can artistically inject Botox strategically to erase the forehead creases, the frown lines, the “eleven” lines between the eyebrows and crows feet around the eyes, leading to a very natural, brighter, softer and relaxed look to the face. With subtle application of Botox, the eyebrows can be raised to give the eyes a more open, rested and less stressed look, and the results will show within days. Botox isn't used just for the face any more, it's also used to inject into the armpits to prevent sweating, putting an end to perspiration stains around the armpits of that expensive, or borrowed gown when on the red carpet.

  • Having time for a full blown face-lift in time for the ceremony isn't very realistic, so stars have the next best thing - PDO Threadlifts.  This minimally invasive face-lifting procedure has been performed very successfully for quite a few years now. PDO threads are special dissolvable threads which dissolve in 6 months. They lift and tighten the skin by promoting collagen and elastin, making the face worthy of thousands of camera flashes.

So if you have a big occasion coming up, and you want to have the red carpet experience, the Selston Cosmetic Clinic provides lots of cosmetic procedures which will make you feel like a million dollars!
Have a look at our new website and check out the gallery to see our fantastic results.
You don't have to win an Oscar to look like a Star !

Lip Enhancement for Fuller Lips Using Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Lots of women today are longing to get the plump and sexy lips that they were denied by Mother Nature. Fuller lips have always been considered a sign of beauty but over time, lips change. Remember how full your lips looked when you were younger? Are they looking thinner? And what about those lip lines that look even more noticeable when you try to hide them with make-up?

It seems everywhere you look, you see models, singers and actresses on the pages of magazine covers, with that seemingly impossible-to-achieve look of full, luscious, pouty lips. But the truth is, most of them weren't born with these fabulous lips and this is one of the reasons why lip enhancement procedures are becoming so popular these days.

Good quality make-up isn't cheap these days, and there's not much point in applying expensive lipstick to unworthy lips, so there are few things you should consider before applying that lip colour. We weren't all born with nice full lips, so it's quite natural for us to look enviously at those that do, but luckily, there are ways that can improve the appearance of your lips.

Lip enhancement is a cosmetic procedure that adds fullness to thin lips. It can create a dramatic improvement in both upper and lower lips, making the lips and face look more youthful. With lip enhancement, the lips get more definition, look plumper, and wrinkles and fine lines found on the top lip can be reduced.

Ageing is considered a necessary evil by most people, so it's no wonder that we want cosmetic procedures to help hold on to our youthfulness. Lip enhancements are becoming a popular way to add youth and shape to a face, as over time, lips naturally lose plumpness and volume, which makes lip enhancements a great way to bring back these lost qualities. This simple procedure also minimizes fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the mouth, adding to an even more youthful look.

Benefits of Lip Injections:
  • Safe and non invasive procedure
  • Provides quick and effective results
  • Provides volume to thin lips, thus improving looks and confidence
  • Minimal recovery time and side effects
  • Patients can resume routine activities almost immediately

A procedure can help you achieve full, sensual lips and on top of this, it could also contribute to the enhancement of your entire face. At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic you can book a consultation, where Dr Bassi will give you one on one advice on what's best for you. No two faces are similar, so he tailors his lip filler treatment to each individual patient. His ultimate objective is that all his clients look and feel their very best.

Whether your goal is to look younger and more desirable, or to become more self-confident, lip enhancement is a quick and simple way to give you fuller, plumper lips, and reduce fine wrinkles around the mouth.

It's never too late for kissable lips.

Chemical Peel for Rejuvenated Skin - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

It's well known that the winter months aren't kind to our skin. Whether it's being out in the harsh, wet, cold weather or spending most of our time indoors with the central heating drying out our skin. The truth is that come the Spring, our skin is definitely in need of a boost!

A lot of skin problems are associated with a build up of dead skin cells, which can make skin look dull with clogged up pores. Skin Peels offer a great way to treat and improve ageing skin, acne, sun damage and the skin's irregular pigmentation. With a short course of treatments, it can also help the skin to appear smoother, brighter and vastly improve the texture and colour of the skin.

This is where the Selston Cosmetic Clinic can come to your aid!
We offer revolutionary medical skin peels which are non-irritating, pain free and do not cause skin shedding or redness, which other, harsher chemical peels are usually associated with. These chemical peels have now become increasingly popular, giving fantastic results as seen on television programmes such as "10 Years Younger."

Treatment using chemical peels can:
  • Reduce fine lines from under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles which are caused by sun damage and ageing
  • Improve the appearance of mild scars
  • Treat active acne
  • Reduce age spots, freckles and irregular pigmentation
  • Improve the look and texture of the skin

A chemical peel is a non-surgical procedure, with the aim being to enhance and rejuvenate the facial appearance, giving you smoother, softer, blemish free skin.

Why have chemical facial peels?

Over time, your skin can gradually appear dull and lifeless, which maybe caused by dead skin cells that accumulate and clog up your skin. Chemical facial peels will remove the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to allow new healthy skin cells to grow back, which will create smoother looking skin.

The benefits of chemical skin peels:
  • The treatment is pain free
  • There is no skin shredding, no skin flaking, no irritation and no redness
  • Promotes growth of new skin, collagen and elastin, which thickens the skin and improves resistance to the effects of ageing
  • Skin peels make your face fresh and youthful and improves skin texture and tone
  • Suitable for all skin types (light to dark skin)
Dr Bassi at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic has over 10 years experience in the cosmetic industry and has performed numerous chemical peels. The doctor will examine your skin, discuss your requirements and recommend a treatment plan specific for you.

The procedure takes about 45 minutes and you can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. The treatment course consists of 6 treatments, each 4 weeks apart. Most clients see an improvement after their first treatment.

The Many Benefits of Botox - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield and Chesterfield

Tabloid newspapers and magazines sometimes write negative articles about Botox, they criticise and make fun of celebrities for having Botox treatments. It's one of the least invasive cosmetic procedures available and the supply and demand for it over the last decade has risen so much, that Botox is quickly becoming an affordable luxury, even for us ordinary folk! 

We all know about the cosmetic wonders of Botox, but did you know that it was originally developed by scientists to treat uncontrollable facial spasms and blinking. While it was being used, an unexpected side-effect was discovered, when it became obvious that patients injected with Botox, were also losing their frown lines.
Imagine how impressive it would be, to walk into a room and have jaws drop because you look 10 years younger! - well that's a common reaction to many Botox recipients. The skin tightening caused by Botox injections around the eyebrows and forehead, perform a non surgical face lift by relaxing the facial muscles that cause the wrinkling associated with ageing. The skin is pulled tight after the Botox injection and the face starts looking younger within a short period of time.

Nowadays, Botox is mostly used as an anti-ageing facial treatment and improvements can be made on many parts of the face, but it also works for other medical conditions.

Where can Botox help:
  • Chin - by softening the cobblestone or puckered appearance of the chin
  • Lip Lines - botox softens the lip lines and smoker lines above the lips
  • Nose - It can reduce the nostril flaring, to trim the width of the nose
  • Eyes - Will give a Botox eye lift and create the perfect arch
  • Nose - By reducing the horizontal bunny lines on the upper part of the nose
  • Eyes - Used to enlarge the appearance of the eyes
  • Armpits - Injections of botox can stop excessive sweating under the armpits (hyperhidrosis)
  • Head - Botox is used to treat migraines and tension headaches

All of these procedures are available at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic, which is is 5 minutes away from J27 of the M1, where you will find a warm environment and friendly helpful staff. There is a free consultation, where honest and ethical advice is always given. Dr Bassi has over 10 years experience as a specialist cosmetic practitioner who can work wonders, giving your face a fresh, healthy and wrinkle free appearance, not a startled and expressionless look. Dr Bassi has performed thousands of injectable treatments and he tailors his facial remodelling treatments to suit each individual patient, as no two patients faces are alike!

be just what they're looking for.

So whether you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines or as a treatment for medical ailments, the benefits of using Botox are many.

Bingo Wings - Vaser Lipo on Upper Arms - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Vaser Lipo on Bingo Wings at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic  
Do you dread revealing your upper arms during the warm summer months? Do you clamp your arms to your sides because your upper arms are a little wobbly? Well you are definitely not alone.
'Bingo wings' is the nickname given to flabby upper arms, usually in women as they grow older. Getting them is more likely on people who are overweight or obese and though dieting may help to reduce bingo wings, loose skin can still remain after sudden weight loss. They are almost impossible to shift with ordinary exercise routines.
Bingo wings before and after.
Bingo wings – nobody wants them, but there they are, wobbling away like jelly on a plate! The term 'Bingo wings' is a slang word which is used to describe folds of loose skin or flesh hanging from the undersides of the upper arms. It's said the nickname originated in 1990's, when women playing Bingo raise their hand to signal a win and the loose arm flesh jiggles about.

Bingo wings are not pleasant to have and put a lot of restrictions on what people, mainly women, feel they can or can’t wear, especially in the warmer months when sleeveless tops, dresses or vest tops are the norm. A few years ago there was a media campaign, calling for mainstream shops and clothes designers to make more clothes with flattering sleeves.

A great number of women won't wear anything that will put their upper arms on display because they are so embarrassed with their untoned and flabby arms. Many resort to a cover up of some kind, with jackets, cardigans, shrugs and pashminas being their main choices.

When it comes to flabby, flapping upper arms, it has usually been a case of grin and bare them - or else cover them up with a cardi! A lot of women don't own too many sleeveless outfits, as their arms are no longer one of their better features and prefer to keep them covered up. Bingo wings can make even the most confident of women feel self-conscious about sleeveless and short-sleeved clothing.

Before and after vaser lipo on the upper arms.

What to wear and what not to wear:
  • Cap sleeves. These are a no-no. Cap-sleeve tops or dresses are an alternative to sleeveless, but they will make your arms look heavier, as they cut off right at the part of the arm that is the widest.
  • Puffed sleeves. The puffy sleeves will only draw attention to the arms as the puff sleeve has lots of volume.
  • Off-the-shoulder tops. Every woman has sexy shoulders, so get around Bingo Wings by choosing long or short-sleeve tops that are off the shoulder, on one or both sides.
  • Elasticated or short sleeves with a cuff. Any tightness around a heavier area only accentuates the problem. If you do wear short sleeves, choose fabric with plenty of  'give' or sleeves with a wider opening.
  • Illusion clothing. A great way to disguise heavy upper arms is to wear fabric which has a chiffon, sheer net or mesh look. These fabrics hide a multitude of sins.
If you're secretly quite pleased we're still in wintertime, because that means you haven’t had to bare your upper arms yet, then help is at hand. It's time to wave goodbye to your bingo wings!

Amazing results before and after vaser lipo on the arms.

At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic we perform 4 to 5 vaser lipo procedures each week, giving a bespoke personal service to each one of our clients.

PDO Thread Lift - The Non-Surgical Facelift - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

PDO Thread Lift treatment - the non-surgical face lift.

Are you starting to look your age and feel like you could do with a face lift - but you definitely don't want to go under the surgeon's knife?

It's great when we're young and the skin on our face is nice and tight, the jaw-line is defined and the cheeks and chin have a smooth contour. But sadly, this youthfulness doesn't last.

Our skin is made up of 80 per cent collagen but disappointingly, after the age of 25 we lose it at the rate of about one per cent a year! Collagen, which is responsible for the smooth, plump appearance of young, healthy skin is lost, and we are left with wrinkles and saggy skin which is a lot less elastic.

Gravity pulls the loose skin and causes it to sag, creating jowls in the lower face and thinner skin around the cheeks, making us look older. As we age, the loss of collagen and elastin in our skin can cause our facial tone to get looser, and wrinkles, fine lines and creases begin appearing on our face.
Losing the collagen, along with the natural loss of fat on our face, can make the cheeks look hollow and create heaviness above the jaw-line and the chin, leaving us with an older, tired appearance.

Until fairly recently, a face lift was the only real option for turning back the signs of ageing, however, now there is a fantastic anti-ageing treatment in the form of the PDO Thread Lift. Polydioxanone (PDO) is a wound stitching thread which has an excellent safety record and has been involved in surgical use for 25 years.
The thread lift procedure makes it possible to lift and tone sagging skin by using injectable threads, and better still, it doesn't need general anaesthetic, incisions or any invasive surgery.

Which areas can be treated with the threads?

  • Sagging jowls
  • Eye bags
  • Drooping upper eyebrows
  • Jaw-line

The Thread Lift is a procedure which rejuvenates and improves the structure of the face. Specialised threads are introduced into the skin with a very fine needle to lift tissue and muscle and improve skin texture. Depending on the area being treated, the threads are inserted either just under the skin or into the fatty layer just beneath the skin. The PDO threads have a dual effect, first to give an immediate lifting effect, secondly to stimulate the body's own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

What results can I expect from the Thread Lift?

  • After the procedure, an instant lift is often noticeable but even better, is that the effects will continue to improve for days and weeks afterwards.
  • The threads are absorbable so they do not need to be removed from the body.
  • The PDO threads will give the skin a natural improvement and an immediate visible lifting effect.
  • Wrinkles will be reduced and crêpe like skin will look more youthful.

Advantages of having PDO thread lifts
  • The results are instant
  • The Thread lift has no tell-tale signs
  • Minimal down time
  • No cuts or incisions
  • Has a high safety profile
  • Skin tightening
  • Improvement of tone and texture
  • Increase of collagen production
  • The treatment is simple and relatively fast

The great news is that the results get even better over the next 12 weeks, because collagen, elastin and hyalauronic acid is stimulated and produced.
They last 12 to 18 months.
Wrinkles will be reduced and crepe like skin will look more youthful.

Enhance your natural beauty

Botox - Vaser Lipo - Lip Enhancement - Laser Hair Removal & more - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Winter is nearly over and Spring is just around the corner! We've all gained a few pounds over Christmas, we've neglected our face and can't even remember the last time we shaved our legs! Well now is the time to think about getting the face and body back into tip top condition.

At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic we can sort out all your face and body needs. We have all sorts of treatments which can help you to maintain your positive body image, self-esteem and confidence.

What treatments are available?

  • BOTOX - Are you noticing frown lines on the forehead and crows feet around the eyes? Botox is now one of the most common cosmetic treatments in the UK. It's a safe and fast way to banish fine lines and wrinkles. We specialise in giving a soft natural look to your face and botox treatment is customised especially for you, as everyone's face is individual. Botox will leave your face looking smoother, younger, more relaxed and healthy. The Botox procedure takes approximately 20 minutes and you can go back to work straight after treatment.

  • VASER LIPO - This treatment is the selective removal of stubborn fat from various parts of the body to give the client a slimmer, toned and more defined body that could not have been achieved by exercise or diet. There are many parts of the body that can benefit from Vaser Lipo including the tummy, hips and buttocks. Also the flabby under arms (bingo wings) and inner and outer thighs. Men can benefit greatly with vaser lipo on the male breasts (moobs) and from getting definition for the six pack look. The area to be treated with vaser lipo is given a local anaesthetic via very tiny incisions, then the ultrasound is delivered using thin Vaser probes which break up and emulsify the fat. The liquefied fat is removed by tiny Vaser cannulas. The procedure can take between 2 - 3 hours.

Reduced 'bingo wings'

Moobs - before and after

  • LIP ENHANCEMENT / AUGMENTATION - The upper and lower lip can have a dermal filler injected, giving more volume and substance to the lip. The insertion of fillers for lip enhancement can balance and give definition to the lips. The specialised lip fillers we use are hyaluronic acid based and this substance is naturally found in the body. We can give your lips the outline and definition that time has destroyed.  Lip enhancement treatment takes about 30 minutes.

  • LASER HAIR REMOVAL - Many people have areas of unwanted hair and are desperate for it to be removed. For men this could be area on the back, chest or facial hair. Women can also have areas of facial hair and this can often be a great cause of embarrassment. Upper lip hair on ladies is never a good look and on dark haired women it's even more noticeable and hairs on the chin are also a definite no-no for the ladies! Using laser hair removal technology, hair can be removed almost permanently from lots of areas : Upper lip, Chin, Forearms, Underarms, Legs, Bikini line and Back. Laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, this laser energy is then converted to heat causing thermal damage to the follicle without harming the surrounding skin, stopping the hair growing back in the damaged follicle. Depending on the area, the laser hair removal treatment can take between 10 minutes to 1 hour.

There are many, many more treatments available at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic. We offer a bespoke service, using cutting edge treatments available to clients at competitive prices.
Check out our new updated website and take a look at what we can do for you! So for a younger, fresher and healthier look, call The Selston Cosmetic Clinic for more information and book a consultation with Dr Bassi.

Valentines Day is almost here, so obviously you want to look your best. But if you think you need a  bit of body contouring or have a few pockets of unwanted fat you want to be rid of, then now is the time to do something about it!  February 14th is all about LOVE, but what you don't want are the 'LOVE handles' after eating all the Valentines chocolates and going out for the romantic slap up dinner. This is where the Selston Cosmetic Clinic can help.

Sometimes even when we exercise and follow a healthy diet, we can still have trouble getting rid of areas of unwanted fat. Vaser Liposuction can remove these fat deposits and help sculpt your body into the shape you're happy with.

  • Thighs - outer thighs and can help to create an inner thigh gap

Fat distribution in the body is largely determined by genetics. While some people have problem areas at the hips and thighs, others may have issues with their arms or flanks.

Lip Enhancement Using Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield and Chesterfield

Lip Enhancement with Dermal Fillers

Ladies! Valentines Day is fast approaching, and that means lips are usually the main focus of the day! Lips are so sensuous, you eat, speak and kiss with them. So it's time to get those lips into a kissable condition!

Lips can say a lot about a persons age, health and character, and are an essential focal point on the face. A pair of full lips can be very alluring, looking smooth and supple with few lines, they should always have a healthy natural colour, regardless of your age. Our lips can be an indicator of ageing, as time spent biting or pursing the lips can lead to thin, deflated lips over time. Years spent talking, chewing, pouting, smoking or smiling can lead to lines and wrinkles around the lips.

The good news is, it doesn't matter how old you are, your lips can be rejuvenated. Lip enhancements are very popular with young women who want plumper lips and a fuller pout, with lip filler treatments giving a softer, fuller more youthful appearance.
Typically, full plump lips are a sign of youthfulness which is one of the main reasons women have their lips done in the first place. Lips start losing collagen as a direct result of ageing and then the lips start to thin.

Lip enhancement is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that increases flat, thin lips and adds volume and enhances the lip shape. Dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that occurs in the body, are injected into the lips.

At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic dermal fillers for the lips are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available, and are a very quick and easy way to improve your look. They typically last between 6 – 9 months and because hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin, the risk of bad reactions to the procedure is very small.

Important rules for lip fillers enhancement:

  • Safety - The preferred filler for lips is hyaluronic acid based as with this, side effects are extremely rare. They give lips a natural feel, they're soft, and they are absorbable and reversible if needed.
  • Natural looking results - Our lips are always on the go, so when we talk or smile we want it to look natural. For natural looking lips it's best to start with a small amount of filler and add more later, if needed. Less is often more and it is best to have natural looking lips rather than over-stuffing them.
  • Natural feel - Choose an experienced cosmetic doctor with the right injection technique and then lumpiness should not occur. Using a soft filler such as hyaluronic acid filler also helps. Make sure that your lips pass the “kiss test” - the person kissing you shouldn't be able to notice the lip enhancement!
What areas of the lips can be enhanced

  • Vermilion border - which gives the outline and improves definition and minimizes lipstick bleed.
  • The upper and lower lip - can have filler injected into it, giving more volume and substance to the lip.
  • Cupid bow - defining the cupid bow gives female lips a balance.
  • Philtrum ridges - when defined by the insertion of filler, this further enhances the features of the lips.

Recommended dermal fillers for lip enhancement
  • Restylane kiss
  • Juvederm Ultra
  • Teosyl kiss
