Non-Surgical Nose Job Using Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

When you aren't happy with the shape of your nose it can cause self-esteem issues. If your nose isn't straight, or you've got a prominent bump or a dip, and the thought of having photographs taken with your nose in profile fills you with dread, we at Selston Cosmetic Clinic can help.

With surgical rhinoplasty, the procedure may include shaving the bone down, breaking and re-setting it or rectifying breathing problems, and will result in swelling and bruises and you'll most likely have to wear dressings afterwards. Cosmetic procedures are much simpler, but they do have limitations on what's achievable. Dermal fillers are great for those who want small refinements and don't want to go through with the risks of surgery, the pain or the longer recovery time.

A non-surgical nose job can transform your nose in 30 minutes. It's a pain-free procedure, there's anaesthetic actually in the dermal filler. Just after the injections you'll have to take care as the filler is quite malleable. The doctor can compress and mould it, allowing him to make your nose the perfect shape for your face.

Nose jobs using dermal filler are temporary and last about 18 months. However, although the filler does wear off over time, what's left is the body's natural reaction to the filler, which is collagen and this will remain in the body. The volume from the filler will go, but the collagen it creates will stay and eventually you will need a top-up.

The benefits:
  • It gives immediate results
  • No scars or long recovery
  • Injections are pain-free
  • You can go straight back to normal activities
  • You're able to wear make up straight after treatment
  • No surgery, no anaesthetic

Most peoples gripes about their noses are that they look unbalanced, the contours are slightly extenuated or there's a prominent bump. Although putting filler into the nose is technically making the nose ever so slightly bigger, once it's straightened and balanced out, the result will give your face a more beautiful, balanced, and even look.

Dermal filler nose jobs are ideal if you have a big event coming up where you want to feel confident and look your best. Maybe a wedding, birthday party or a family photograph, where lots of photos get taken and the image will be seen by all, for years to come. We all want to look the best we can in photos, and this will also give us much more self-confidence.

FUE, FUT & Strip Hair Transplant Procedures - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

It may have been nature's plan for you to have thinning hair or bald patches, but the great thing is that you don't have to follow nature's plan. Losing your hair is one of the most demoralising things that can happen to a man as he ages, and can eat away at his self-esteem. So it's a relief that hair transplant technology has improved so much in recent years.

Dr Raghu Reddy performing a FUE hair transplant procedure
Deciding whether or not to have a hair transplant procedure is a big step, and at Selston Cosmetic Clinic we've had fantastic results with this treatment. Heading the FUE hair transplant team is Dr Raghu Reddy, who is now known as one of the best hair transplant surgeons in the country, and he's delivering consistent, outstanding results, as you can see with our before and after photo's on our website gallery. 

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure, where your own hair is taken from the back of your head, and gets transplanted into the balding area. It's a highly technical, sensitive and laborious procedure which when performed well, can offer a lifetime solution to baldness. Dr Reddy does hair transplants by FUT/Strip or FUE procedure.

When you are thinking of having hair transplant treatment, it's hard to know which doctor to choose, as you obviously want someone with lots of experience in this area. Dr Reddy has extensive experience with 3rd Generation FUE hair transplants and strip hair transplants and he specialises in the former. There are two types of procedure; strip surgery, which is a process that takes a strip of skin from the back of the scalp, and hair grafts which get taken out and placed into the balding areas.

Before and after a FUE hair transplant
In order for you to find out what method would suit you best, a consultation is essential. Not every one is suitable for the FUE hair transplant, so the strip hair transplant method might be appropriate or similarly the strip method might not suit everyone.
Some of the key factors looked for during the consultation are:
  • Age
  • Family history
  • Expectations
  • Sufficient donor hair
  • Nature of scalp etc.
If you have any hair concerns; whether you are receding, balding at the crown or your hair is thinning, call and book a free consultation and we can let you know all your options. We will talk you through the procedure and answer all your questions. Give us a call and find out just what we can do, to give you back you full head of hair!

Define Your Lips and Add Volume With Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

One of the first things women tend to rectify, when the face starts to show signs of ageing, is the lips. Over the years, lips lose their definition and volume and become thinner. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, along with botox, lip augmentation is one of one of the most often requested treatments and has become popular with a wide age range.

Lots of women are looking for fuller and more sensuous lips and we can create these by using dermal fillers. Having a simple, safe dermal filler treatment will add volume and definition to thin lips, both of which we can lose as we grow older. As well as this, the treatment can also balance out uneven  lips and reduce the look of fine, vertical lines around the mouth.

Why get lip enhancements?
  • To add more volume, to achieve fuller, plumper lips.
  • To balance out lopsided or asymmetrical lips.
  • Add volume to small, thin or flat lips.
  • To give volume to either a thin lower or upper lip.
  • Enhancing the shape and definition of the lips.
At your first consultation, Dr Bassi at Selston Cosmetic Clinic will discuss your expectations, and which filler he will use to meet your requirements. Dr Bassi is a fully trained cosmetic practitioner, trained in advanced filler techniques, and he pays skilful attention to the shape of the lips, and not just to the size. As no two faces are the same, he tailors his treatment to each individual patient, helping them look and feel their best. We find that most of our clients want a natural looking lip enhancement and it's important that only use soft natural fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm.

Areas we can help:
  • Vermilion border or lip outline - we can create definition and width.
  • Improve smoker's lines around the mouth, which causes lipstick bleeding lines.
  • Upper and lower lip - for volume and fullness.
  • Definition of the cupids bow - adds definition and contouring.
The dermal filler we use are hyaluronic acid based, which is a substance naturally occurring in the body and allergic reactions with these fillers are rare. The day after the procedure the lips may swell slightly, so it's always a good idea to have the procedure at the weekend when you have a couple of days off.

Side effects are temporary and resolve within a few days:
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Lumpiness -  you can use gentle massage and it will settle down within a couple of days.

Laser Hair Removal for Unwanted Facial Hair - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

When we see hairy men, most of us see it as a sign of virility; but on women, excess hair is embarrassing and unwanted. We see women in the media who always seem to look perfect, and it's difficult for us ordinary folk to match up to this ideal. Because we have hair in places we'd rather not, we tend to shave, pluck or wax excess hair from every area of exposed skin.

Removing unwanted hair is time-consuming and repetitive no matter what your preferred hair removal technique is, and whether you shave, tweeze, wax, thread or use depilatory creams, the hair will always grow back. You'll find the skin on your face is sensitive, and constantly using harsh hair removal treatments can cause a great deal of skin irritation.

All women have hair on the face, usually it's fair and fine and is difficult to see, but those will darker hair are not so lucky. You will find that most of your female friends have the same issues when it comes to unwanted facial hair, and the hair on the upper lip, chin and sideburns can all be very embarrassing and cause a great deal of insecurity. It seems that every time you think you've disposed of  unwanted hair, you'll find more of it sprouting up somewhere else, and even worse, after you get rid of the hairs, they just grow back.

You can cover up your excess hair in areas that aren't constantly exposed, but the hair on your face is always on display, and it can seem as though everyone is always looking at the hairs on your upper lip, chin or sideburns, but you can get rid of it with laser hair removal.

Benefits of laser hair removal:
  • Permanently reduces hair safely
  • Fast treatment time
  • Boosts your self-confidence
  • Prevents razor bumps and irritation
  • Minimal discomfort
Laser energy gets 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. This results in hair growth being stopped in the damaged follicle. Generally for white skin we require around 6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and this usually results in 80% of hair removal. Darker or black skin may need around 8 treatments, resulting again in 80% of hair removed.

Most clients experience minimal discomfort; some may experience a minor stinging or pinching sensation on the skin as we deliver the laser pulses, but we can offer topical anaesthetic cream to make treatments more comfortable. At Selston Cosmetic Clinics we can perform laser hair removal treatment on white or black skin. It's not possible to treat white, grey, and blond hair by laser.

Flatter Tummy with Vaser Lipo Before & After Photos - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Vaser lipo is the gentlest, yet most effective and precise form of liposuction available, making it suitable for most parts of the body, even those small, delicate areas like the chin and knees. The most popular areas are the stomach, chest, hips and thighs. Vaser lipo is a minimally invasive treatment, shaping and contouring your body, and leaving your skin smoother and more toned. The vaser process is very soft on the body, and for such a small procedure you won’t believe the amazing results.

Important benefits of Vaser Lipo
  • Refines and emphasises the muscle appearance
  • Smoothed skin in the most delicate areas such as arms and chin
  • Easy removal of large amounts of stored fats
  • Readily visible results after a single procedure
This woman didn't think she was big; however, her stomach had always been an issue for her. She felt, when looking at herself in the mirror, that her stomach seemed out of proportion with the rest of her body. She felt like having a flat tummy would increase her body positivity and give her more confidence. Eventually, she decided enough was enough and came to Selston Cosmetic Clinic for vaser lipo treatment.

After the vaser procedure, she had a flatter and more toned tummy and now feels more in proportion, which has increased her confidence.

Dr Bassi will choose which vaser lipo techniques he will use, depending on the area being treated, and the amount of fat that you would like removed. He'll tailor your treatment in order to create your personal ideal body shape.

A vaser procedure softens the fat so that it comes out smoothly and evenly, and this allows us to remove greater amounts of fat safely. As long as you keep to a healthy diet and exercise plan, you will keep your new shape. With vaser lipo you'll get the greatest skin retraction, giving better results and a more toned appearance.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we perform the majority of our vaser treatments under local anaesthetic and a mild sedative, so you're wide awake and chatting to Dr Bassi and his assistant Mags throughout your treatment. The procedure can also be done under twilight sedation, but this will increase the cost of your treatment as it requires an anaesthetist. After your treatment, you can go home the same day and get on with your life, no hospital stay and no big downtime as for traditional liposuction.

Get a Refreshed Youthful Looking Face With Botox - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

We all want to look as young as we can, for as long as we can. Our lifestyle choices and how we take care of our skin can all play a part in delaying the signs of ageing, although we do have to accept that to age, is both natural and inevitable.

The ageing process shows on our face, and this happens for a variety of reasons:
  • Time naturally takes its toll
  • Prolonged exposure of the sun causes the breakdown of elastin fibres
  • Hormonal changes - women of post-menopausal age can notice a loss of density on the skin
  • Smoking - Smokers tend to have more wrinkles than non-smokers
  • Repetitive muscle movement - can cause lines and wrinkles

Botox is probably the most amazing and effective anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle treatment available. We inject botox into the skin and it temporarily relaxes the muscles between the eyebrows, forehead, and crows feet around the eyes. The treatment is safe, affordable, convenient and fast, the treatment is usually completed within 15 or 20 minutes and the results will last for at least 3 or 4 months.

Wrinkles are the folds and creases that appear on the skin and are a natural part of the ageing process. The primary cause of facial wrinkles are the repetitive movement used when we make our facial expressions, and over time they form crows feet, frown lines and marionette lines. Lines around the mouth and lips are formed through puckering up the lips when smoking. The skin is also exposed every day to the elements; the wind, sun, dirt, and pollution, and it's inevitable that this will eventually affect your skin in noticeable ways.

  • Fine lines - are shallow and are found in areas of facial movement, such as the eyes, mouth and upper lip, from smoking and squinting. 
  • Wrinkles - are depressions in the surface of the skin which can appear either coarse or fine.
  • Deep set wrinkles - we call these expression lines and they are usually found on the forehead, the corners of the eyes and vertical lines on the side of the mouth, usually caused by frowning, raising your eyebrows and smiling.
Botox offers people of all ages a way to, not only reduce the wrinkles, but also have strategically placed injections as a preventive measure to stop wrinkles forming. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we embrace subtly administered botox treatments and we specialise in giving a soft natural, refreshed look to your face.

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

If you struggle with your weight, and dieting and exercising just isn't working for you, then vaser lipo is one method guaranteed to give your body the dramatic transformation you've been looking for. The vaser lipo technique uses a precise, but minimally invasive liposuction technology, to deliver the amazing results you've been looking for. In many cases, the results become visible after only one treatment. Vaser lipo is the procedure you need, if you want to refine and sculpt your figure and eliminate fat. Vaser lipo can help you look your very best, whether it's a simple improvement in a problem area or a major full-body transformation.

The vaser lipo technique offers lots of advantages over traditional liposuction treatments.
  • The vaser procedure does not require large incisions.
  • The treatment is tissue-selective and targets only the fat, leaving other tissues protected from any damage.
  • The procedure is powerful enough to deal with large areas of fat, but it's gentle on core areas such as the arms and neck.
  • Recovery time is much shorter due to less damage to surrounding tissues and blood vessels.
  • Vaser lipo has been clinically proven to provide only the best results in treated areas, leaving your skin smooth and your body, beautifully contoured.
The pain during a vaser lipo procedure is minimal because treatment is only mildly invasive. We numb the treatment areas with local anaesthetic, and we make only very small incisions in the skin to fit suction tubes, and there is normally no need for any stitches.

Important benefits of Vaser Lipo
  • Refines and emphasises muscle appearance.
  • Smooth's the skin in the most delicate areas such as arms and neck.
  • Easy removal of large amounts of stored fats.
  • Readily visible results after a single procedure.
  • Vaser Lipo is the best way to remove fatty tissue for aesthetic body contouring. 
Results are immediate and you will be able to see your new changed shape as soon as your vaser treatment has finished. Treated areas might be a little swollen, but results will improve after a week and continue to improve for up to six months as your skin tightens with new collagen growth. Your post-op care programme will include deep tissue massage that will help to improve your results.

You may feel a little bruising or swelling in the treated areas, which should subside after a few days. You’ll be sent home with a post-op care programme to follow, to help your recovery.

Botox, Peels & Microdermabrasion Face Treatments - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Mother's Day is getting nearer, so if your Mum is feeling a bit frayed around the edges, or has expressed an interest in giving her skin a boost, then how about getting her a facial treatment at Selston Cosmetic Clinic! Maybe you are a Mum yourself and want a treatment to freshen and brighten your skin, well come and see us, and see what we have to offer!

These muscle relaxing injections are particularly effective for treating forehead wrinkles and the laughter lines around the eyes. The main causes of wrinkling of the skin are ageing, exposure to the sun and smoking.

Botox is a straightforward procedure. We inject Botox using a disposable syringe with a very fine needle. Minute amounts of Botox muscle relaxant, very precisely, gently and painlessly get injected into several locations on the face, chosen by the practitioner, who has carefully examined the movements of the muscles on your face. Botox gives excellent results on the forehead, frown lines, crows feet and neck bands and this treatment will make your face look smoother, younger, more relaxed and healthier.

Microdermabrasion is a wonderful treatment, it will freshen up the skin, help with large pores and get the skin nice, smooth and glowing, for that special occasion. 

We pass a wand, delivering a fine jet of abrasive crystals over the skin, which exfoliates dead skin particles and then a vacuum action removes the debris. It removes only the very top layer of skin smoothing out the skin texture and helping to remove superficial scarring and imperfections.

It only takes about 30 minutes, doesn't need pain relief and has almost no down time after the treatment. We can treat all skin types and skin colours without risks and side effects. The microdermabrasion procedure may cause slight discomfort, but shouldn’t be painful. The skin can sometimes feel a little tender after treatment.

Chemical Peels
At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we offer revolutionary medical and cosmetic chemical skin peels,which are non-irritating, pain-free and don't cause skin shedding or redness. Fine wrinkles and open pores begin to appear when the collagen and elastin in our skin begins to deteriorate. Skin peels bring life back into your skin, resulting in smoother, finer skin.

So if you want to treat your Mum or even if you want to treat yourself, give us a call at Selston Cosmetic Clinic and see what treatments we can offer you.

Remove Acne Scars With Medical Microdermabrasion - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Having acne and living with its after-effects isn't just confined to our teenage years, the scars and pock-marks left on our face can last a lifetime. Because after all, no-one is perfect, we all have flaws and most of the time we spend vast amounts of time and money trying to hide them.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we have various cosmetic treatments available, ready and waiting to give you the complexion you want and deserve. Our medical grade microdermabrasion machine offers state of the art treatments from mild exfoliation to deeper medical treatments, and this translates into more impressive and lasting results to you.

Microdermabrasion before & after just one treatment
The outer surface layer of the skin replaces itself about every 28 days through shedding, which is known as exfoliation. Microdermabrasion treatment speeds up the rate at which the skin would normally renew itself, and revealing new, fresh glowing skin.

We all have days when our skin looks tired, dull and uneven, and pock-marked skin and large pores can make us feel self-conscious. Medical microdermabrasion is a safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. It will polish the outer layers of the skin, revealing a healthy fresh complexion, while helping to diminish the appearance of acne scars and skin imperfections. It smooths the skin, removing small scars, uneven skin tone, birthmarks, sun damage, age and liver spots.

We perform microdermabrasion treatments at Selston Cosmetic Clinic with great results. It's a unique treatment that uses a light mist of crystals, which gently and painlessly dislodges dead and dull cells from the upper layer of the skin, whilst vacuum suction simultaneously removes the crystals and dead/dull cells, resulting in polished smooth and glowing skin. The treatment is suitable for all skin types, and it promotes growth of new skin and collagen, which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effect of ageing. Recovery time is negligible, you can return to work/normal activities immediately after your treatment.

Microdermabrasion treatment
Microdermabrasion was first developed in Italy in 1985, and today there are hundreds of microdermabrasion machines available, and all of them have the same basic design, to exfoliate dead skin cells. This treatment creates a smooth, even skin texture, providing a perfect surface for applying make-up. It also promotes collagen and helps to stop future breakouts, if it's done regularly.

Medical microdermabrasion is a safe procedure for women and men and it can treat specific skin conditions or be done as a facial to keep the skin in good condition.
