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

We all have certain parts on our bodies that we think of as our trouble spots. It's hard not to get discouraged, when no matter how much exercise and healthy eating we do, these areas of fat still refuse to budge. However, there's an exciting treatment available to take away those trouble spots and wave them goodbye forever.

As anyone who has been on a diet understands, sticking to a diet and keeping up with an exercise routine isn't easy. It takes a lot of work; getting up in the morning and going to the gym, avoiding certain foods - usually the foods that you love, and making sure that you're drinking enough water. In fact, doing everything that you can to get the toned, defined body that you want.

When some people think of fat removal treatment, they only remember the drastic traditional liposuction from years gone by, but these days, we use vaser lipo, the simpler, gentler and minimally invasive procedure, used to slim, contour and streamline almost any area of the body to great effect. The level of safety and precision which vaser lipo can give, allows the cosmetic practitioner to creatively shape and sculpt any area of the body, from the tummy, thighs, back, chest, hips and flanks to the more delicate neck, arms, knees and chin areas. We must stress that vaser lipo isn't a treatment that's used to achieve weight loss, but rather for contouring the body.

With vaser lipo there's no need for general anaesthetics during the treatment, as vaser treatment uses local anaesthetic instead. This keeps the treatment costs much lower, since anaesthesia is quite expensive. Within days after the procedure, you can expect to see a trimmer body, firmer skin and a smoother silhouette in the targeted area. The body should keep its more contoured look with proper diet and exercise. However, vaser lipo is not a magic solution that allows you to eat all you want, and you must be aware that you will gain weight if you don't keep up a healthy lifestyle.

Non-surgical vaser lipo
  • There is quick healing, as your body suffers minimal trauma.
  • As the fat gets removed, the remaining tissues are sculpted, which leaves natural-looking contours.
  • Less bruising once the procedure is over.
  • Cost isn't as expensive as traditional liposuction.
The length of the procedure will depend upon which areas you want treatment on. Lots of people today decide to have a vaser lipo procedure to improve the shape of their body and boost their self-esteem. The result will give you the perfect body you've always wanted.

Get Fresher Smoother Skin With Dermaroller Therapy - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

If you feel your face is looking a bit tired, or you feel self-conscious about acne scars, or maybe your aged and sun-damaged skin is getting you down, then dermaroller, also known as microneedling, is a skin treatment you can have that stimulates skin renewal, and helps the skin appear fresher, firmer and younger.

Dermaroller therapy activates production of new collagen and fibroblast formation, which helps to reduce wrinkles and also improves the texture of the skin. The skin’s natural healing process helps to restore a smoother, clearer complexion and it can also help improve the appearance of many types of scarring.

Dermaroller procedures are one of the few skin treatments that are suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin. The treatment is less invasive than other skin treatments, and doesn't need the removal of the epidermis, resulting in a much shorter healing time.

The dermaroller instrument is a sterile roller which gets rolled across the skin, puncturing the outermost layers of the skin to create tiny pin prick injuries which are not visible to the naked eye, and these tiny wounds will stimulate new collagen deposition and regenerate new, healthy skin cells. The wounds will close within an hour, and you see visible signs of skin rejuvenation after just six to eight weeks and this can continue for up to a year after the treatment. The eventual process results in tight skin, fewer lines and wrinkles with a softening and reduction in scarring.

  • Used to treat:
  • Scarring​​
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin that lacks firmness and elasticity
  • Enlarged pores​
  • Acne and chicken pox scars
  • Sun damage ​
  • To lighten pigmentation marks
  • To improve the appearance of stretch marks from pregnancy or weight loss
  • To improve the appearance of cellulite
The dermaroller treatment has many benefits, including reducing stretch marks, scarring and wrinkles. It stimulates collagen and elastin and can repair and plump up the skin. Dermaroller results create smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
  • Procedure Time - up to 75 minutes
  • Back To Work - Immediately
  • Anaesthetic - Anaesthetic cream if needed
  • Downtime - 1-5 days
  • Duration Of Results - Maintenance courses might be required
  • Results - Course of 4 to 6 treatments recommended

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

As time goes by, we'll find that there are some areas of stubborn fat, that annoyingly are very hard to get rid of, and no matter that we eat a healthy diet and do regular exercise, this can’t always tone up the bits that bother us the most.

When we gain weight on our legs, it doesn't just build up on the outer and inner thighs it can also settle around the knees. Excess fat can also cause sagging skin on the knees, even on men and women who are very slim and toned.

Plump knees can affect the way we feel about ourselves and even influence our clothing choices, with short skirts, shorts and swimwear becoming definite no-no items in our wardrobes. If someone is self-conscious about their knees because they look saggy, wrinkly or have rolls above or below them, then vaser lipo can treat the problem successfully. 

Before & After Vaser Lipo on Inner Thighs & Knees

You don't actually have to be overweight to get fatty deposits settled around the knees, the knees can look unsightly due to a number of issues:
  • Genetics
  • Past damage
  • Weight change
  • Health conditions
Traditionally, the knees have always been a difficult area to treat when using surgical procedures, but fortunately, vaser lipo is a safe and efficient method of resolving this problem, by removing unwanted fat and achieving precise and delicate contouring.

Vaser treatment removes fat from the inner part of the knee, but it can also be taken from just above the knee. During the procedure we make one or two small incisions, either hidden behind the knee or in the crease above the knee. We can do the vaser treatment either as a stand alone procedure or do it in while performing lipo on other areas, such as the inner or outer thighs or saddlebags.

Vaser lipo allows precision shaping for a much more natural-looking result. It's a gentle treatment for removing excess fat and the results are instant. Unlike traditional liposuction, vaser lipo doesn't need large incisions and the recovery time is a lot shorter, due to less damage to surrounding tissues and blood vessels.

During the vaser procedure the fat cells get melted away using ultrasonic probes, leaving your body nicely tight and toned. We perform the treatment under local anaesthetic, and there’s only minimal pain, bruising and swelling. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, our clients find that their confidence improves with vaser lipo as they feel more toned and can wear different types of clothing.

Semi-Permanent Make-Up To Enhance Your Natural Features - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Women want to look their best at all times, and it would be fantastic if they could do it with the least amount of effort. With semi-permanent make-up, it stops you having to apply, reapply and remove make-up every day, and it will always look professionally applied. Just imagine waking up looking fabulous, stepping out of the shower, the pool or the gym, confident that your make-up is still in place.

There are many reasons why people have semi-permanent make-up applied:
Convenience. Some busy women have little time for applying cosmetics every day
Those with sensitive skin or with allergies to conventional make-up
Ageing changes, over plucked eye brows, thinning lips or dull eyes
If they have arthritis or painful shaky hands
Women with vision problems or those who wear glasses or contact lenses
Women who just have sparse hair growth, or have hair loss due to alopecia 
Those with oily skin who tend to shed make-up easily

Semi-permanent cosmetic treatment is when we carefully apply semi-permanent pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. The pigment is :
  • A natural iron oxide.
  • It's hypoallergenic
  • There are no fragrances, emollients or other added ingredients
Lip Liner and Lip Blush:
Lip liner treatment can emphasise, correct or define the lips and it can prevent lipstick bleeding. A colour wash over the lip area can beautifully accentuate your lips, giving an attractive soft and natural look. The lip blush involves working along the lip line, defining the shape before progressing down and into the lip, to contour the pigment into your natural lip colour.

Eyeliner/ Lash Liner:  
Will give you a result that will complement your existing features and will suit your eye colour. The shape gets drawn on before the treatment, so you can see how the finished result will look. Whether it's a thin understated line, a clearer and more heavily defined liner or maybe an optional flick can add a gorgeous finish to this look.

Natural looking, beautifully shaped eyebrows can accentuate the eyes, and frame the face, making it look more attractive. Different techniques can achieve different looks, from powdered brows, to microblading, to HD brows or even just adding a few hair strokes to fill in eyebrow gaps.

The results look very natural, making your features look more defined. Although it varies with every person, the results usually last between 3-5 years and in some cases could be longer. At first, the pigment on the treatment area might look darker than you wanted, but after a few days, the colour will lighten by up to 30%.

There's usually minimal discomfort, we can use topical anaesthetics to greatly reduce any minor discomfort and promote relaxation. Most clients feel absolutely nothing during treatment, except a prickly sensation in the area being treated.

Make Your Face Look Younger With A Botox Brow Lift - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Botox eases the lines and wrinkles on the face, that appear through repetitive facial movements, etching them into the face. The frozen looking face, that some people worry about getting with botox injections, will only happen when too much gets injected. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, Dr Bassi  has performed thousands of injectable treatments and has over 10 years experience as a specialist cosmetic practitioner and he performs careful and technical exact injections, resulting in a fresh and healthy appearance, not a startled and expressionless look.

As you get older, your brow may drop or sag,  but Botox treatments will allow you to lift the brow, 
giving your face a more youthful look and making you look less tired. A chemical brow lift is a botox injection treatment that can raise the skin tissues around the eyes and eyebrows, to raise the natural eyebrow arch. This treatment can also make the eyes look wider, resulting in a more youthful look. We recommend the brow lifts to those with mild to moderate brow heaviness, due to low-hanging eyebrows or naturally drooping eyelids.

The ‘botox brow lift’, or chemical lift, is a popular procedure for those who have a mild to moderate heaviness in the brow area and don’t want to undergo invasive surgery. We can perform the brow lift on all skin types, and those who have naturally drooping eyelids and low-hanging eyebrows may find it particularly effective. Injecting botox into the brow will literally lift the skin tissues above and around the eyebrows, resulting in the natural eyebrow arch raising a few millimetres higher.

Botox is a non-surgical way to improve the look of your face, it has many benefits:
  • When compared to other procedures, botox requires no downtime.
  • It's a relatively affordable cosmetic procedure.
  • When combined with fillers, it can give your whole face a more youthful look.
  • Botox is clinically proven to be safe and effective
  • You might be less prone to future wrinkles because your muscles can actually start gravitating toward a more relaxed state after receiving botox injections.
  • Botox may help treat chronic migraines, excessive underarm sweating and other conditions.
    It's designed to yield attractive, natural and understated results. Your face will look like your face, only better. 
Botox used in tandem with other injectables can fully rejuvenate the face, leading to reduced wrinkles, plump lips and volumised cheeks, which all work together to soften the effects of age.

Laser Treatment For Spider and Thread Veins - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

As we get older, both our skin and our veins become weakened, and this can cause spider veins to appear more visible on ageing or mature skin. Tiny blood vessels which become dilated and appear close to the surface of the skin, are known as broken, thread or spider veins. These veins are fine purple or red wiggly lines.

Spider veins are more likely to appear on women than on men and they are normally found on the legs but can also appear on the face, breasts and arms. People, especially women, who have spider veins on the face and legs can find them embarrassing or unsightly, and this can really affect their confidence. However, you don't need to suffer, as there are treatments available that will quickly and safely eliminate these unsightly thread veins to give your skin a clearer, more attractive appearance.

Spider veins are like varicose veins, but smaller and nearer to the surface of the skin and they can resemble tree branches or spider webs. They might cover a large, or small area. While we perform surgery on the larger varicose veins, laser treatment can help with the smaller veins.

Laser treatment benefits include:
  • Quickly and safely eradicating the thread veins on the legs
  • Veins will only recur in a small percentage of cases
  • Treatment can help to restore your confidence
  • You are likely to see ongoing improvements after each treatment

There's usually no obvious cause for getting thread veins, they tend to develop;
  • As we get older and the skin and blood vessels become less elastic.
  • It's thought hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and the menopause provoke their development.
  • You can also inherit a family tendency to the problem.
  • The elements - too much sunbathing, exposure to wind or extreme temperatures.
  • Medical issues - corticosteroid medicines and radiotherapy.
  • Jobs involving prolonged standing may aggravate the condition, but doesn't actually cause it.
  • Veins may also be affected by smoking and alcohol. 
Although you may not like the look of them, thread veins aren't dangerous, but they tend to become larger and increase in number over time. The safest, most effective treatment for spider veins is laser treatment. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic , we apply a laser to the skin directly above the spider veins. The energy from the laser is preferentially absorbed by coloured tissues, such as spider veins and the energy causes the spider veins to heat up and collapse. After treatment, the body slowly re-absorbs the veins.

Rejuvenate Your Face With A Vampire Facelift - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) also known as the Vampire Facelift, is a cosmetic treatment that's been used for about 8 years with fabulous results. It's a scientific discovery that recruits your body's natural agents, to rejuvenate your face and make you look years younger.

If you don't feel the need to undergo an invasive surgical procedure to improve the look of your skin, then the Vampire Facelift might be the solution you are looking for. When you notice your skin has become less smooth due to ageing, or your skin is looking tired, it might be time to consider a solution. The PRP treatment can give your skin back its youthful texture, glow and rosy colour.

The Vampire Facelift is an innovative treatment that uses the ingredients of your blood to rejuvenate tired, ageing skin along with fine lines and wrinkles. The unique ingredients of your blood are your platelets, and they're converted to platelet rich plasma by the Vampire Facelift technique.

Areas suitable for PRP treatment
For the Vampire Facelift treatment, we take 10 to 20 ml of blood, the same as a standard blood test, and this is then spun to separate blood platelets from the rest of the blood. Once these platelets have been withdrawn from the blood sample, they get injected carefully into the face and this stimulates new collagen formation, and this will result in rejuvenating your skin.

PRP is unique as there is :
  • No risk of allergy or rejection. We are using your own blood.
  • No animal materials involved.
  • Minimal discomfort.
  • Quick procedure, from start to finish of treatment is around one hour.
They injections are relatively painless, and we use a topical anaesthetic. We use very fine needles to inject small amounts of PRP into your skin, and from our experience, 3 treatments, spread 4 weeks apart are enough. The results can last up to 18 months and we recommend a touch up treatment around this time. The beauty of this treatment is that you are using your own blood, so it's completely non-toxic and hypoallergenic.

PRP is a stand alone or add-on treatment to the many cosmetic treatments we already offer at Selston Cosmetic Clinic. It gives good results for treatment of crepiness and wrinkling of the upper and lower eyelids.

It's also an ideal for enhancing the skin texture of the :
  • Eye area
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Hands
  • Acne scarring
At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, Vampire Facelift clients are reporting back subtle improvements in wrinkle reduction, better skin texture and appearance, and their open pores are reducing dramatically.

Vaser Lipo to Transform Your Inner & Outer Thighs - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Some women can feel uncomfortable about displaying their legs in public, but the legs are often key to a shapely figure. The legs can appear relatively slim throughout, but the inner and outer thighs might be out of proportion to the rest of the body. Women tend to store fat on their thighs, making it hard to achieve a toned, smooth silhouette, and stubborn fat deposits sitting on the body can make any weight loss difficult to achieve, even when you are actively exercising.

A lot of us have lumps and bumps on our outer thighs and this can really knock our confidence when we want to wear smooth, tight-fitting clothes that show off the figure. Excess fat on the inner thighs can also cause painful rubbing and chaffing.

Vaser lipo on the outer and inner thighs and the knees
The thighs are a notorious area of the body that are prone to storing excess fat and this can make the thighs look out of proportion with the rest of the legs. This can make it tricky when trying to find a pair of trousers that will comfortably fit both the upper, and lower half of the legs. With vaser lipo, stubborn localised pockets of fat can successfully be removed, improving the overall shape and contours of your thighs. Vaser treatment can help create a natural silhouette that’s suits the whole body and gives results that are dimple-free and symmetrical.

  • Once we remove the fat, it won't return
  • Vaser lipo is a walk-in, walk-out procedure
  • Minimal downtime and minimal time needed off work
  • A specialised technique designed to minimise any discomfort and bruising
  • We use local anaesthetic
  • Transform your legs in one procedure
  • Good skin retraction is possible
Vaser lipo on the inner thighs and knees
Vaser lipo uses amplified, concentrated waves of ultrasound to send vibrations through the fat targeted area. We make tiny incisions into the treatment area, usually in the skins natural creases and they are usually unnoticeable afterwards. After an anaesthetic solution is injected, the vaser probe gets inserted into the treatment area and ultrasound energy targets the fat cells just under the top layer of skin. This liquefies the fat cells, gently breaking them up, before they are suctioned out with a cannula.

With vaser lipo treatment it’s possible to shape your legs however you like. The recovery times are short, and the pain during the procedure is minimal as it’s performed in a safe, non-invasive way, that leaves everything but the fat cells untouched, and undamaged.
