Botox Treatment for Excessive Underarm Sweating - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

However much we hate it, sweating is natural and it's an important part of our body's ability to regulate our body temperature. Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is a common condition causing a person to sweat excessively. The sweating may affect all of your body, or it may only affect certain areas. Commonly affected areas include the armpits, the palms of your hands, the soles of your feet, your face and face, chest and groin.

Excessive sweating from the armpits is one of the most embarrassing conditions and can seriously affect our self-esteem and the way we go about our daily lives. So, if you are feeling hot and bothered and antiperspirants just aren’t keeping you dry, Botox might be the answer.

There's some practical advice to help stop excessive sweating. Wearing the appropriate clothing is essential. Cotton is ideal, it's cool and it absorbs sweat,  but it does tend to remain damp. Clothes made with synthetic fibres tend to draw sweat away from the body and make you feel dry, however this fabric is good at keeping the body warm and this can just make you sweat even more. You should keep your house and work environment well ventilated, and a change of clothing during the day can help make you feel more comfortable.

Excessive sweating can cause lots of inconveniences:
It limits what type of fabrics you are able to wear.
Washing and dry-cleaning bills will probably soar.
The embarrassment and frustration we feel in public and with groups of friends.
When meeting new partners the main concern is that you’ll glisten and glow, and not in a good way!
The chances are, that you will have to frequently change your clothing.

There are some alternative treatments for underarm sweatiness. Many people will have tried self-treatment first, by trying out a range of over the counter antiperspirants, which are generally ineffective and talcum powder which can help to absorb the sweat. If these have not helped, Botox hyperhidrosis treatment is an excellent alternative with outstanding results to stop excessive sweating.

Excessive sweating can now be treated effectively with Botox injections. Selston Cosmetic Clinic provides the latest, safe, effective cosmetic medical treatments for excessive sweating. We inject Botox in very small quantities in the armpit region, just under the skin, making the area numb beforehand to minimise any discomfort you may experience. We use very fine needles to inject the Botox making the procedure virtually painless. The treatment usually takes about 20-30 minutes and you can return to work immediately after the procedure. In most cases the treatment takes effect within a matter of days and can last up to 9-12 months. The procedure can be repeated as often as necessary.

Vaser Lipo on Inner & Outer Thighs & Knees - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Sometimes, despite the fact that you do plenty of exercise, have a membership at the gym and stick to healthy eating, women often find that certain areas of the body have pockets of fat that are hard to remove. It might be demoralising having these lingering fat deposits and though they're perfectly natural and are not harmful, many people do decide to have these fat pockets removed.

Vaser Lipo helps people achieve their body goals by contouring the body, and removing fat to improve their natural body shape. Even naturally slender people can feel self-conscious about fatty deposits and this is something that a bit of well-targeted body contouring can improve, resulting in defined curves and a smoother, sleeker silhouette.

These days, what with social media and reality TV shows concentrating on facial looks and body image, it’s no wonder that people, especially women, have concerns about the way they look. It’s most probably one of the main reasons that body contouring, using procedures like Vaser Lipo are more popular than ever. Vaser Lipo can help you achieve maximum body confidence in those places you’d previously given up on.

It's perfectly reasonable to have Vaser Lipo of the inner thighs if there is excess fat which creates an unwanted fullness and distortion to the shape of the leg. Vaser lipo is great at de-bulking if you want a slimmer look and want to look good in your clothes. A couple of weeks ago at Selston Cosmetic Clinic we had a woman come to us for Vaser Lipo on the inner and outer thighs and the inner knees.

Before - marking up the areas to be treated

We took enough fat out to achieve a slim, straight leg, and as the body won’t replace the fat cells removed from these areas, Vaser Lipo can deliver a long-lasting change to your body shape. I will post her 'after' photo's after she has been in for her follow-up appointment.

It’s ideal for parts of the body that seem resistant to diet and exercise, and it's ideal to treat delicate areas. Because it’s so precise it can lead to exceptional results with minimal downtime.

Benefits include:

Minimal pain,
Only slight bruising,
Quick recovery time,
Minimal scarring,
Improved skin retraction,
Performed under local anaesthetic.

Vaser Lipo is not a weight-loss method and even though we do remove fat cells, Vaser contours the body, sculpting most areas of the body, resulting in a smoother silhouette. It's best that you're at, or near your ideal weight, and just wanting some stubborn pockets of fat eradicated.

Achieve Fuller, Pouty Lips with Lip Augmentation - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

There are days when you look in the mirror and see at least one thing you want to change to achieve your ideal look, and fuller, sensual lips are at the top of the list for many women. Lots of women are self-conscious about their smile, or maybe they have noticed that the lip appears to disappear when they speak or smile, or they just want to balance out the upper and bottom lip and get it in proportion.

In the last few years, the trend of having fuller lips has become very popular, and the entertainment and fashion world have put bigger, plumper lips back into the spotlight. Looking around, in magazines and on reality TV shows, it seems that full, luscious, pouty lips are everywhere, but full lips don't have to look like inflated cushions or trout pouts - you can have fuller, plumper lips without going to extremes!

Full lips with an accentuated border have often been considered a sign of beauty, youth and good health, and whether you were born with naturally thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural ageing process, there are ways that you can enhance them.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, we inject dermal filler into the lip and mouth areas, adding body and volume to the lips, accentuating the vermillion border, plumping up thin lips and balancing uneven areas. Dermal fillers match the natural structure of the lips. Throughout our waking hours, our lips are very active, whether it's through talking, eating, smiling or even kissing! Injected filler supports the many movements of the lips and help to maintain definition and enhancement for up to a year.

Firstly, we cleanse the lip area and then the lips are anaesthetised, numbing the treatment area. The dermal filler is then applied via a series of injections, and massaged into place to make sure of even distribution. Results are immediate, but it is possible to have slight swelling or bruising at the points of injection, but this is normal and will subside within 24-48 hours.

The procedure:

Takes between 20-40 minutes.
Local anaesthetic is normally used during the procedure.
There might be minimal bruising after treatment.
You can go back to your normal activities the same day.
You can choose to have lip filler treatment at the same time as other procedures.
It only requires one treatment to achieve the desired results.
Some people choose to have occasional top-ups to maintain the look.
The effects of lip fillers can last up to a year.

If you have always coveted full, sensuous lips, then Doctor Bassi at Selston Cosmetic Clinic can help you to achieve beautiful natural looking lips which will suit you and your face. Dr Bassi will create natural looking lips which balance the ratio of your face. Find out about the latest methods of lip enhancements, including what to expect during the procedure and give us a call, and you too could have beautiful natural looking lips in no time.

Ideal Candidates for Vaser Lipo Procedures - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Everyone has body issues and at some time or other feel insecure about the way their body looks. All around, on TV, in magazines and posted on social media there are images of seemingly perfect men and women with absolutely no body imperfections! Now, we might know that they airbrush most of these images, but that doesn't stop us feeling slightly dissatisfied with our wobbly bits.

Luckily, for people who feel insecure about some of their body parts, Vaser liposuction is a great way to slim and contour your body exactly the way you want it. It’s a more gentle and precise method than traditional liposuction, and an ideal way to achieve your desired shape. Vaser is a minimally invasive treatment and is a great way to target problem areas and sculpt the body. When faddy diets and hours at the gym exercising just won't get rid of that stubborn tummy or give you sleek silhouette, then it might be time to consider Vaser Liposuction.

Just 3 weeks after Vaser Lipo!
Before the Vaser Lipo procedure

A good candidate for Vaser Lipo treatment is:

If you’re within 30% of your ideal weight, then Vaser Lipo is an ideal treatment for you, if it's any more than 30% then you should probably consider a different weight loss method. Vaser Lipo is not a weight reduction procedure, it is a body contouring procedure.

Skin elasticity.
Firm skin with good elasticity will help you to achieve the look you want after your procedure. Usually, visible skin retraction takes between 2-4 weeks and gets better & better over the 4-6 months after the procedure.

Muscle tone.
It helps if you already have good muscle tone before your treatment. To achieve maximum results, many experienced Vaser doctors recommend that you start to tone your muscles before you have a procedure.

Relatively good health before Vaser Lipo is important, and that you do not have any illnesses or medical conditions that may prevent you from healing properly after treatment. However, if you do suffer from a particular health condition, your doctor will talk to you about your suitability for Vaser Lipo.

Before and after Vaser Hi-Def

People choosing Vaser Lipo treatments should have a realistic idea on what results they want to achieve. At the first consultation at the Selston Cosmetic Clinic, Dr. Bassi; after looking at your fat distribution, skin, muscle tone and overall body shape, will talk you through the procedure. He will give you honest advice on what is, and what isn't achievable.

So if you're in good health, have reasonable expectations about the results, if you’re within 30% of your ideal weight and have firm skin with good elasticity, then you are a great candidate for Vaser Lipo.

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

Vaser Lipo is the best cosmetic procedure if you want to contour and streamline your figure and get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. From simple improvements in small areas, to larger, more troublesome areas, Vaser Lipo can help you look your very best.

If you have you always struggled with weight gain, and exercise and diet just isn't working, then Vaser Lipo is the ideal treatment to achieve the dramatic transformation, you have hoped for. The Vaser Lipo technique uses a minimally invasive, but very precise liposuction technology, to deliver the eye-catching results you've been looking for. In many cases, results become visible after only one procedure and will continue to look better over the following weeks!

The Vaser Lipo technique offers many advantages over traditional liposuction treatments. The procedure is tissue-selective, targeting only the fat while protecting other tissues from damage. The procedure is powerful enough to deal with bigger areas of fat, but is gentle on smaller areas such as the arms, chin and neck. The Vaser Lipo technology will provide the best results in treated areas which will leave your skin smooth and your body, beautifully contoured.

Before beginning Vaser Lipo treatment, we administer a local anaesthetic to the targeted and surrounding areas, so that you will feel minimal discomfort during the procedure. We make small incisions to place the cannulas, however these are just millimetres long so rarely scar or bruise and they don't need stitches.

We send the Vaser ultrasound energy to the targeted areas, using very thin, solid and grooved probes. The energy is delivered to the fatty deposits between your skin and muscle, causing fat cells to vibrate, and this action dissolves the fat cells and simply melts the fat to liquid. The liquid fat is then drained from the body through suction. Following the treatment any residual fat will be naturally excreted by your body and by post-op massaging of the treatment area. It’s important to take plenty of fluids following your treatment for this very reason. Fatty deposits can continue to break down even weeks after the treatment, so Vaser Lipo results will often improve over time, especially if combined with regular exercise and a healthy diet.

  • Important benefits of Vaser Lipo:
    It can refine and emphasise muscle appearance.
    Smoother skin in the most delicate areas such as arms and neck.
    The easy removal of large amounts of stored fats.
    Visible results in one single procedure.
    Vaser Lipo is the best way to remove fatty tissue for aesthetic body contouring.

Vaser Lipo treatment is a walk in, walk out procedure taking between 1-3 hours, depending on the size of the area. The process is very soft on the body, and is minimally invasive, you won’t believe the drastic positive effects it will have on your body, for such a seemingly small treatment. Give us a call and we'll give you the shape you’re looking for in no time.

Before & After Vaser Lipo on the Tummy - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic, one of the most popular cosmetic treatments we do is Vaser Lipo. We get lots of enquiries about it, asking; which areas can it treat, how long does a procedure take, is it painful and what happens afterwards? If you are thinking of having Vaser treatment, then check out the gallery of before and after photo's on the Selston Cosmetic Clinic website, or if you have decided to have Vaser Lipo treatment, then give us a call and we can book you an appointment for a free consultation with Dr. Bassi.

If you have trouble losing stubborn fat from one particular place, then doing exercises that concentrate on the problem area may help.  In many cases there is no way to completely tone the area, and if you are in this position and it's causing you distress, why not consider cosmetic treatment?
People wonder which body areas are suitable for Vaser Lipo treatment. Well, the answer is, lots!

Areas that are popular with women are:
Inner thighs and outer thighs
And the areas most popular with men are:
Embarrassing male breasts (Man boobs)
Love handles / Flanks

A few weeks ago this woman came to the Selston Cosmetic Clinic for Vaser Lipo treatment of the tummy. She was happy with her body, but she had a bit of a belly and all she wanted was to get her tummy more in proportion.

Before treatment

Dr. Bassi did the procedure and a few weeks later she came back for a follow-up appointment and she was looking great. With even better results to look forward to in the coming months!

A few weeks after Vaser Lipo and look at the difference!

The tummy area is a very common place for Vaser Lipo treatments. It works well removing stubborn areas of fat which are very hard to shift with diet and exercise alone. Vaser Lipo can target a pot belly, love handles and muffin tops.

Vaser Lipo has lots of advantages:
It doesn't need general anaesthetic, instead we use local anaesthetic to numb the treatment area.
The procedure is minimally invasive – no damage to other body tissues or nerves.
Improved skin retraction.
Minimal risk of bleeding, scarring, bruising and discomfort.

Vaser Lipo is a walk-in-walk-out procedure, so minimal downtime, which is great news for those with busy schedules.

Vaser Lipo is excellent for reducing fatty bulges and sculpting a beautiful natural contour to the body. The body won’t replace the fat cells removed from these areas during a procedure, so it can deliver a long-lasting change to your body shape.

This procedure is not intended as a weight loss solution, the aim is to create a slimmer silhouette. You won't lose a significant amount of weight loss through Vaser, but you will be very happy with your new slimmer shape.

Before & After Vaser Lipo on Outer Thighs - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

It's so annoying thinking that most of your body is in good shape, but frustratingly you have a certain part of it that you just hate. And no matter how much dieting and exercise you do, you can't get that one bit looking right.

Fat accumulates in different places on men and women. Men tend to store excess fat around their flanks, abdomen and breasts. Women, however, often accumulate fat around the buttocks, hips, thighs, knees and lower abdomen. The good news is that Vaser Lipo can treat all of these areas.

Every year, both women and men have Vaser Lipo treatment to achieve a variety of goals. Whether it's to look better in a swimsuit, to wear clothes that fit more comfortably or just for their own self-confidence in their body image. For men, Vaser Liposuction can also successfully treat gynecomastia, also known as man boobs.

At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic we perform the Vaser Lipo procedure regularly with satisfying results, as you'll see if you check out the before and after photo's on our website. Vaser Lipo is best suited for small to medium volumes of fat removal and it's performed under a local anaesthetic. We make tiny incisions in the treatment area, insert the probe and ultrasound energy is directed into the fat cells. We then use a suction device, to gently remove the emulsified fat cells, creating the naturally beautiful contours you expect from a Vaser procedure.

Before Vaser Lipo

This lovely woman had Vaser Lipo of the outer thighs. Her legs were a little chunky and she was aware that one of her outer thighs was uneven and not as smooth as the other. She was looking forward to wearing summer dresses and was afraid that the fabric would cling in the wrong places and show off her less than smooth silhouette.

Three weeks after Lipo and you can see a smoother silhouette.

So Dr. Bassi worked his magic and she was left with symmetrical legs and a smoother silhouette. Just three weeks later and the client was delighted with the early results. As well as giving her a big confidence boost, she said it had already made a huge difference to how her clothes fitted her!

Though you can see a difference straight after the Vaser Lipo procedure, the result is likely to improve with time and healing of the treated area. After a period of about three to four months you will see the final results of the procedure, providing you with a natural-looking result.

Vaser Lipo is an advanced body contouring procedure and it's a great way to sculpt and reshape your body. All our clients are fully counselled to make sure they understand what can be achieved with their procedure, and if the results turn out better than originally thought .. everybody is happy!

When having the Vaser Lipo procedure, it's important to know what’s realistic for you, and for your body shape. It really does depend on what will suit you, and not just to copy this seasons current body trend.
