Erase Fine Lines & Wrinkles With Botox - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Botox injections have been safely used for some years now, and it's become one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments on the market, due to its safety and effectiveness. We must always remember that despite Botox's popularity and its increasing use, the treatment is still a medical procedure, and only a fully trained and highly experienced cosmetic doctor or nurse practitioner should carry out this treatment.
  • Always check out the practitioners qualifications.
  • Avoid gimmicks, such as: two for the price of one or introduce a friend and get a discount.
  • Always make sure the place you go to have treatment is clean. 
  • The cheapest priced treatment isn't always the best.
  • Check out their before and after photos and see what results they achieve.

Dr Bassi is highly trained in botox techniques and at your free consultation at Selston Cosmetic Clinic, he will discuss what requirements you have, and what your expectations are. Dr Bassi has performed thousands of botox treatments and our client base is increasing year upon year, mainly by word of mouth client recommendations.

We inject botox into specific muscles and this relaxes the muscles and prevents contraction. The repeated contractions of the muscles are what cause the skin to crease,making fine lines appear. We administer botox with fine needles, making the procedure quite painless. Afterwards you might get slight swelling and redness and with any procedure there's the risk of bruising, but this is minimal and can easily be covered by make up.

Botox, when done properly, should leave your face looking relaxed and refreshed, with no-one being able to tell you’ve had wrinkle reduction treatment. By choosing the right cosmetic doctor to achieve your aim, your appearance will look much improved, but still remain looking completely natural.

Botox can also  be used to:
  • Reduce over active frown / expression lines.
  • Reduce crows feet/ lines and wrinkles
  • Correcting lines from repeated facial expression and worry lines
  • Give you an eye lift
  • Correct eyebrows that look uneven
  • Tighten the jaw line
  • Correct the down-ward-turning corners around each side of the lips
  • Treat migraines
  • Treat hyperhidrosis (armpit sweating)
Continuity is always a good idea, so if you are having botox, fillers or any treatment where you go back for top up's and more treatments, it's wise to use the same practitioner who knows what you want, what you are hoping to achieve and who knows your face. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, Dr Bassi has attended many conferences and courses, and his skills are always being updated.

Enhance Your Lips With Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

The lip clinic at Selston, Nottinghamshire, specialises in both lip enhancement and augmentation. Over recent years, fuller lips have become very popular, and here at Selston we are very aware that some clients might be wary of ending up with a 'trout pout', but we can assure you we would never let this happen at our clinic.

Lots of people are unhappy with their lips. They might think their lips aren't symmetrical, or maybe they want fuller lips to enhance their appearance. Our cosmetic doctor, Dr Bassi, has performed many lip fillers and his treatment ethos is to produce elegant looking, luscious lips, which should only get you compliments and admiration.

Lip enhancement generally involves outlining the lip border and lip augmentation involves making the body of the lips fuller. A complete lip filler process at Selston Cosmetic Clinic's lip clinic, will involve using both of these processes, to expertly place the fillers in other areas to balance the lips out and give natural looking results.

Lip filler treatments provide following functions:
  • Restores lost volume and shape.
  • Give more symmetry to the facial features.
  • Boost confidence in regard to their appearance.
Before any treatment you will need to talk to a cosmetic doctor. During your consultation you must make the doctor aware of your preferences and let them know the result you want to achieve with this treatment. You can always ask to see before and after photo's of their previous work on clients who have had lip augmentation.

We attempt to make the procedure as painless as possible and the fillers we use contain a local anaesthetic. We apply a topical anaesthetic 20 minutes before the procedure, and this numbs your lips, and this will make your treatment more comfortable.

Lips can start out thin and barely noticeable, and change into a sensual fuller look after just one visit to the cosmetic clinic. Lip fillers can smooth out fine lines around the mouth, define the edges and enhance and balance your facial features, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Dermal fillers can enhance the overall volume of the lips and by inserting the fillers around the lip edge, will help to improve the contour and shaping of the lips. We use hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers at Selston Cosmetic Clinic, which is a substance that's non animal based and is naturally found in the body. They are extremely safe and give natural results, along with longevity.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic's lip clinic we've had experience in enhancing thousands of pairs of lips. Selston is the place to head to if you want defined, elegant luscious lips, done by an experienced cosmetic doctor.

Liquid Facelift Treatment Using Botox & Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

As the years go by, we start to notice those unavoidable signs of ageing as they start to show on our face. The skin loses collagen and elasticity and starts to sag, resulting in jowls. We also lose volume, making the cheeks and temples look flatter and hollow, and the lips become thinner and less defined. Wrinkles and fine lines will also, sooner or later, make their presence felt. With so many treatments available to rejuvenate the skin, it’s very hard to know which one is the best for you.

The liquid facelift has made an impact in cosmetic procedures during the past few years. The treatment aims to treat the upper, mid and lower areas of the face, to create a refreshed, balanced appearance that is subtle and entirely natural looking. At the Selston Cosmetic Clinic, Dr Bassi has performed thousands of injectable treatments and has over 10 years experience as a specialist cosmetic practitioner. 

The liquid facelift procedure uses injectable treatments; strategically placed dermal fillers to help increase the volume and shape of your face, and botox to ease the look of wrinkles, folds and creases and to help prevent further lines and wrinkles forming. 

Dermal fillers
Dermal Fillers will add volume to fill out the hollows in the cheeks, plump up the lips and create a softly contoured, more youthful looking face. Some of the most ageing lines and creases on the face are in the area between the nose and mouth, and these can leave your face looking tired and aged, but they can easily be corrected with fillers.

We use botox to freshen up the face, softening lines and wrinkles, eliminating frown lines, crows feet and forehead furrows. Strategically placed, botox can also give you an eye lift and lift the corners of the mouth.

It can benefit;
Clients with slight sagging of the jowls.
Those who have lost volume in the cheeks.
Those who have lost volume in the face.
Help to ease out lines and wrinkles in the face.
The lips can lose smokers lines and also get plumped up.

The liquid facelift addresses some of the signs of ageing without the need for surgery. It's a quick and effective, minimally invasive treatment that's a walk in, walk out procedure and has long-lasting results and a short recovery time.

By using dermal fillers and botox injections, it's now possible for a skilled cosmetic doctor to help you look younger and more refreshed in a couple of hours.

Lose Your Double Chin With Vaser Lipo - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Having a double chin doesn't necessarily have to mean you're overweight. Genetics, water retention or bad eating habits mean that slim women, are just as susceptible to getting a double chin as anyone else. Double chins and sagging jowls can affect anyone, and can prove difficult to get rid of regardless of your body type, shape and size.

Vaser lipo gives the chin more definition

A double chin can also slowly appear because of lack of exercise. When you put on weight, the fat can settle under your chin, changing the contour of your face and altering your appearance. Unfortunately it's not possible to spot reduce just your chin, so you will need a full-body weight-loss approach, and focus on reducing all of your body fat in order to lose your double chin. However, there's no guarantee that if you put on weight you'll gain a double chin or that if you lose weight, your double chin will go.

A fatty chin can really affect self-confidence for a lot of adults, and occurs when a layer of fat is stored directly under the chin. Although it's a condition that's unlikely to affect younger people, unless you are overweight, it also doesn't mean that you're old. You might be prone to suffer from a double chin if your family has a hereditary predisposition to them, or you might naturally retain too much water in the chin area, or you just might naturally store excess fat.

It's very hard to hide fat under the chin and around the neck unless you keep your head held high all the time, trying to make your profile more flattering. And concealing it with clothing is only possible if you want to spend the rest of your life with a scarf wrapped around your neck.

Vaser lipo treatment on the chin

Vaser liposuction is specially tailored to work well, even on small areas of fat, and is often considered a good choice for delicate areas such as the chin because it's able to target specific fat, without damaging the surrounding nerves.

The Vaser lipo procedure starts with a saline solution injected into the chin, which will numb the area making it a painless process. Following the injection, small incisions are then made in the chin, and we  insert a small ultrasonic probe which gives off high frequency energy to loosen the fat cells and emulsify it, and the fat can then be removed from the chin using a gentle suction technique.

As the chin is such a small area, the procedure should only take about 15 minutes. Recovery time is also short, although you will need to wear a compression garment on your chin for a short period.

Dermal Fillers To Create Natural Looking Lips - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Our face loses volume as we get older, and this is especially noticeable in the lips. The older we get, the more our lips gradually become thinner and flatter and they might develop fine vertical lines on, and around the lip area. The lips are a central focal point on our face, and having them look attractive is important for most of us, and if they lack volume or they aren't symmetrical, it can really affect our confidence.

The lips are an important part of facial beauty for women young and old, and for many, lipstick draws attention on a daily basis to the natural shape and symmetry of their lips. It’s now very easy to improve the size, shape and symmetry of your lips with injectable dermal fillers, and these are easily available in cosmetic clinics, where you can get fuller lips, and reduce the fine lines around the mouth, making our faces look more youthful.

Lip fillers enhance the lips contours and add volume to give them a symmetrical appearance, as well as improving the definition and outline. Fillers can offer an effective solution to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area, keep the lips feeling soft and natural and giving them a more youthful look.

They can:
  • Create a fuller upper and lower lip
  • Reduce fine lines around the mouth
  • Lift the corners of the mouth
  • Erase smokers’ lines
  • Will enhance the shape and definition of the lips
  • Even out unbalanced lips
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure to give your lips a fuller, plumper appearance, and the dermal fillers enhance the shape, volume and definition of the lips. Augmentation helps when lips aren’t symmetrical, when the top lip is thinner than their bottom lip or vice versa, or if half of the top lip doesn't match the other half, making the lips to look at though they are sloping sideways.

We make the procedure as painless as possible and the fillers also contain a local anaesthetic. A topical anaesthetic gets applied 20 minutes before the procedure, and as this numbs the lips, it makes the treatment is more comfortable. Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid which is a substance that's found naturally in the body, and the results typically last 4-6 months.

You can go from thin and barely noticeable lips to a sensual plump look with one visit to the cosmetic clinic. Lip fillers are a great way to smooth out fine lines around the mouth and achieve a more youthful appearance.

Treatments for Facial Ageing - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

The normal signs of ageing on the face can include fine lines and wrinkles, sagging of the skin and volume loss, and as time goes by, these will only intensify. Skin naturally starts to lose its elasticity, which causes wrinkles, and repeated facial expressions, sun exposure, smoking and poor diet and dehydration will all speed up the natural ageing process and cause early wrinkling.

Dermal fillers fill the hollows under the eyes

Our skin ages in different ways:

Skin loses some of its elasticity due to wrinkles and fine lines becoming thinner and drier and the wrinkles are often found around the neck, eyes, forehead, mouth and lips. Frequent fine motor movements of the face, that get repeated over the years, usually cause these lines.
  • Eye Lines - Wrinkles at the outer corners of the eyes, caused by squinting in sunshine, reading in dim light, or at the computer screen.
  • Frown lines - caused by frequent furrowing of the forehead in concentration or concern.
  • Mouth lines - around the edges of the mouth and lips are usually caused by smoking, or puckering the lips when drinking through a straw.
Loss of volume
As we get into our 30's, one of the most dramatic changes to the skin is the loss of collagen. Collagen production starts to diminish over time, leaving fine lines and wrinkles and a loss of skin elasticity. Our skin will start to lose its plumpness because of the loss of fat and tissue under the skin. This lost volume can make the face look gaunt and hollow, especially around the eyes and the cheeks.
Loss in facial volume causes:
  • Permanent parentheses lines on the resting face
  • Sagging skin after sudden weight loss
  • The cheeks flatten over time
  • Hollows to appear under the eyes
As we age, our skin loses the collagen and elastin which keeps it looking soft, plump and youthful. Ageing and gravity cause the facial muscles to weaken, which causes the skin to sag a little further down every day.

Sagging skin causes:
  • Fine lines and wrinkles forming in the skin.
  • Pores in the skin often seem bigger.
  • Furrows and crevices start to develop around the eyes, neck and mouth.
  • Lack of definition at the jaw
The natural rate of ageing causes some of our wrinkles, sagging and volume loss, and there are some characteristics of ageing which are completely out of our control, like genetics, anatomy and gravity.
However, there are cosmetic procedures available which can help to slow down the ageing process.

A liquid face lift using a combination of botox and fillers

Botox - Facial lines and wrinkles aren't evident when the muscles underneath are relaxed. These signs of facial ageing can easily be reduced or eliminated by botox treatment, resulting in a natural and more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers - The precise placing of fillers gives a natural filled out appearance to the hollows in sunken cheeks and under eye troughs and softens deep grooves, giving you dramatic results.
Accent skin tightening - We can use this as a stand alone treatment or combined with other treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion and dermaroller, to enhance results. These are great ways to tone, tighten and smooth your skin. It gives you rejuvenated skin firmness with the toned look of youth.

Combat Facial Ageing With Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

A youthful face has smooth skin, the ability to reflect light and has fullness in the upper areas, but over time, years of sun exposure, pollution and everyday stress will affect our appearance. The body produces less of the natural substances that's needed to keep our skin firm and well hydrated, which all cause facial lines and wrinkles to appear.

Dermal filler used on the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)

We use dermal fillers to fill depressions on the face, hands and body. Injectable fillers are the perfect way to enhance your facial features ,because they can help to fill shallow contours, plump up thin lips, soften folds and wrinkles on the face and improve scars and other facial defects.

The ageing process begins when we are about 25 and over the next decade:
  • Skin cell turnover slows down and dead cells remain on the skin creating a dull appearance
  • Early wrinkles can begin to appear around the eyes
  • The lines from the nose to mouth become more prominent
  • The jaw line begins to soften 
From age 35 to 45
  • Lines and wrinkles will deepen, and frown lines can give your face an angry look
  • Your skin type may change, from oily to dry or vice versa
  • Pigmentation changes on your skin
From age 45 onwards
  • In menopause, oestrogen levels decrease, causing collagen to deplete
  • Volume loss
  • Skin can become dry and dehydrated
  • Pigmentation will become more visible
  • The face begins to drop
  • The jaw area loses definition
Dermal filler used on the tear troughs (under eye hollows)

Wrinkles and creases on the face are part of the ageing process and they begin to appear as the collagen and elastin fibres break down, but they can also result from excessive frowning, smiling or squinting.

Dynamic lines are when lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing occur on the face when it's in motion. They're also called expression lines; laughter lines, frown lines and bunny lines, which are harmless at a younger age but will often contribute to where the deeper set folds and wrinkles will remain in later life.

Static lines are noticable wrinkles, lines, sagging and folds which are present on the resting face; sagging jaw line, nasal folds, sunken cheeks and horizontal forehead lines. These lines, if left untreated, will stay on the face and will progressively worsen.

Dermal Fillers are a temporary solution, as the hyaluronic acid in the fillers is naturally degradable, and is naturally broken down and eventually absorbed by the body. Fillers are effective at restoring hydration to the skin, smoothing lines and wrinkles and can also restore and enhance the facial shape. The fillers last around 9 to 12 months, although this may vary from person to person, depending on their lifestyle and which part of the face gets injected.

FUE Hair Transplants to Restore a Full Head of Hair - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

As they grow older, most men will lose hair, and though for some the loss is barely noticeable, for others it's very obvious. and when hair loss is severe or begins at a young age, it can cause great anxiety. For men, hair loss can cause distress especially if it happens in their early adult life, whether the hair is thinning on top, receding at the temples or going bald at the back.

It's a fact of life that most men will lose some, or all of their hair as they get older, and while some men embrace their baldness, there are also those who decide to do something about it.

Selston Cosmetic Clinic's renowned hair transplant surgeon, Raghu Reddy, has developed the Third Generation FUE; the most advanced minimally invasive method of hair restoration, which can achieve better and more natural looking results than more traditional procedures. With these advanced techniques, the results can be very convincing, especially when restoration is performed by such an experienced hair transplant surgeon.

Benefits of Third Generation FUE includes:
  • No scalpels, stitches or linear scarring
  • Natural-looking results
  • The ability to achieve maximum density
  • Ability to choose grafts and hair for different areas of the scalp
  • Lifelong guarantee
  • Future loss of hair can be countered for
  • We can correct previous scars
Since Dr Reddy started to perform FUE hair transplants at Selston Cosmetic Clinic, which is his satellite clinic serving the North and Midlands, his wealth of experience has made him a much sought after FUE transplant surgeon. Dr Reddy works most weekends at the Selston clinic.

The transplant procedure involves taking single hairs, which contain the sebaceous glands, as well as the nerve and blood tissue and then transplanting them to the area that needs filling in. We take the hair from the back of the head, and as this hair is not subject to hair loss, once it's transplanted it will remain. It's a painless procedure with little down time and no linear scaring.

The photo's below show Dr Reddy implanting the grafts and the grafts being prepared.

Implanting and preparing the grafts
The photo's below show each hair being placed into the scalp, one by one by Dr Reddy, and the filled-in receding hairline.

                          Placing hair into the scalp and the receding hairline filled in.                                             
FUE treatments will leave you with natural looking, long-lasting results. The technique precisely targets and transplants only the strong, healthy hair follicles that aren't sensitive to testosterone, and this results in the hair loss being restored permanently. The specialist hair transplant doctors use custom-made microsurgical tools to ensure a single minimally invasive procedure, without unsightly scarring.

There will be some minor pin prick scarring immediately after the procedure, but this disappears during the healing process which takes approximately 5-7 days and any redness or slight swelling in the treatment area will also subside.

Get A Flatter Toned Chest with Vaser Lipo For Man Boobs - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Most men want a well toned body, with a well toned chest, but unfortunately some men tend to gain weight on the breast area, which tends to cause a lot of embarrassment, and makes them extremely self-conscious about their body.

Before and after vaser lipo treatment
Lots of people joke about man boobs, but it isn't really a laughing matter for the men affected by this condition. It can cause psychological harm on those suffering, and can easily cause loss of confidence and even depression, especially to teenaged boys.

Man boobs, or gynecomastia, happens to more than 40% of men, and those who have this condition usually try to disguise their breasts from being seen by others. Whether it's wearing oversized shirts and tops, avoiding activities like swimming, where their bodies would be on show or even going to the extremes of binding the chest to try to get a smoother silhouette. These days, lots of men who are looking for a lasting solution to treat their oversized moobs, are now aware of vaser lipo treatment to have the fat in the breast area removed.

Important benefits of Vaser Lipo
  • It can refine and emphasise muscle appearance
  • Smooth's the skin in the most delicate areas, such as the arms and neck
  • Can easily remove large amounts of stored fats
  • Small incision scars won’t be visible as they will blend into the natural creases of your skin
  • Can produce readily visible results in a single procedure
  • Minimal discomfort and there's no risk involved.
The vaser lipo treatment uses ultrasound energy to break up fatty deposits in precisely targeted areas of the chest. It's gentle to the surrounding tissue, nerves, blood vessels and veins. The precise and gentle techniques mean that vaser treatment has a faster healing time that's much quicker than traditional liposuction. The skin on the treatment area is left looking much smoother, leaving you with a more naturally defined silhouette.

Before and after a vaser lipo procedure
The vaser lipo technique helps to contract and tighten the skin to sculpt the body. It's gentle to the tissue surrounding treatment areas, so as not to cause sagging skin but rather leave a smooth, contoured finish.

Vaser lipo treatment for male breast reduction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures among men. You'll see the results immediately, although after the procedure is over, you'll have to take some precautions for quicker healing. You'll wear a compression garment for some weeks afterwards and in case of swelling or bruising, your doctor will prescribe you with pain relief.
