Lose Your Unwanted Hair With Laser Treament - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Unwanted hair on women can often be upsetting and lead to a lack of self-confidence. Facial hair, especially on women with dark hair, can cause embarrassment, so whether you're looking for smooth holiday ready legs, bikini line hair removal, or getting rid of a monobrow or a moustache, Selston Cosmetic Clinic offers the latest cutting-edge, safe and effective cosmetic medical treatments for hair removal.

There are many drawbacks in dealing with unwelcome body hair, and the results of shaving and waxing; which are the most popular methods of hair removal can cause; discomfort,  itchy rashes and unsightly regrowth. The results from these methods can easily be short-lived, making the process time-consuming and if you're having the treatment done professionally, expensive.

There are many reason why people decide to have their unwanted hair removed:

To Save Money - Laser treatment, followed by a series of top up treatments might seem expensive, however when you add up what you will continue spending over a lifetime on shaving, waxing or other temporary methods, it becomes a great investment, which will get long-term results.

To Save Time - To take away the need for daily shaving or monthly waxing. Imagine never again having to miss your lunch hour to wax, or wake up early each morning to shave.

To Eliminate Ingrown Hairs - Ingrown hairs can look unsightly, make you feel uncomfortable and make you self-consciousness. By eliminating the hair through laser hair removal, you'll see the end of these troublesome hairs.

To Regain Self-Confidence
- Whether you're a woman with unwanted facial hair, you might have hair in other undesired places, or you're a man with an overly hairy back or chest, you'll know that excessive or unwanted hair can take a toll on your self-esteem. Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair and help you regain that lost confidence.

To Get Smoother Skin - Removing hair with laser hair removal can give you much smoother and sexier skin than any other hair removal methods. Also, with laser hair removal treatment there's no need to let the hair grow out, creating uncomfortable in-between growth stages.

Laser treatment effectively targets and treats actively growing hair follicles. Laser hair removal severely reduces any growth on unwanted facial and body hair when the laser energy passes over the treatment area. The energy attracts the pigment in the hair follicles, and it's then absorbed by the follicle where it transforms into heat. The heat cauterises the blood supply to the hair, making the follicle inactive.

Electrolysis is the only procedure to remove hair permanently in one single treatment, which shows in the high cost of the treatment. By contrast, laser treatment will remove hair, and in just one treatment will ensure that less hair grows back. The hair that does return is much finer than the previous hair and better still, it takes as few as six treatments to remove the hair altogether, permanently.

Achieve a Brighter Fresher Complexion with Microdermabrasion - Nottinghan, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Microdermabrasion treatments can improve the texture and quality of the skin. It's a controlled surgical treatment that removes the uppermost damaged skin layers, which triggers the growth of new youthful looking skin. Microdermabrasion is perfect for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and it can also help to fade any spots or hyperpigmentation, as well as any mild scarring or acne. By removing the outer layer of cells, microdermabrasion can make your complexion look brighter and fresher, and if you have uneven skin tone, the treatment will help to create a more even tone.

Microdermabrasion can banish common skin problems such as:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven pigmentation
Clogged pores
Enlarged pores
Sun damaged skin/age spots
Uneven skin texture
Dry and flakey skin
Post-acne scars

Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure, which exfoliates the skin taking away the top layer. Approximately six treatments spaced four weeks apart are usually necessary to get great results.

There are many questions people often ask about microdermabrasion treatment, such as;

What's involved in a microdermabrasion procedure?
The skin gets cleansed to remove any oil or dirt, then a light mist of crystals will gently and painlessly dislodge dead and dull cells from the upper layer of the skin. A vacuum suction simultaneously removes the crystals and dead and dull cells, resulting in polished smooth and glowing skin.

Can medical microdermabrasion make the skin dry?
Dryness after treatment is rare, but if it does happen, you should nourish your skin with a replenishing serum. Everyday moisturising creams and make-up will work more effectively once the dry cells on the skin’s surface are gone.

How effective is microdermabrasion on wrinkles?
Microdermabrasion works on fine wrinkles. The skin's texture gets evened out through abrasion of the top layer of skin. The effect is a reduction or even total removal of superficial wrinkles.

Is microdermabrasion safe if you have eczema?
You shouldn't use microdermabrasion if you suffer from eczema, as the procedure is somewhat invasive to the skin and can worsen this condition. This applies if you are using microdermabrasion at home as well, despite its mild effect.

Can you have microdermabrasion if you have rosacea?
No. The exfoliation process will worsen the redness, itchiness and flaking symptoms of rosacea. However, there are other cosmetic treatments available for rosacea, just not microdermabrasion.

Does microdermabrasion help to treat scarring?
Microdermabrasion will even out the skin texture and help to remove superficial scarring by removing the top layer of skin, however, deeper scars will need more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peeling or laser facial resurfacing.

Will microdermabrasion make the skin look healthy?
Healthy-looking skin needs elasticity and density, which are both achievable through skin cell renewal. As well as removing the dead skin cells, exfoliation will unblock the pores allowing creams and serums to penetrate deep into the skin. Removing the dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin and encouraging growth of a new layer, enhancing new collagen production, will increase skin thickness, tightness and will improve the skin tone and texture.

Is microdermabrasion painful?
There's no pain during a microdermabrasion treatment, although you might feel some slight tickling or tingling when the crystals make contact with the skin. There will be some slight redness after the procedure for about 24 hours.

Microdermabrasion takes no more than 20-30 minutes and it can successfully be used on the face as well as the body, neck, chest, back and hands. One major advantage is that it only removes the top layer of skin, which is why it's considered the least invasive cosmetic procedure. It doesn't need anesthetic and has almost no down time after treatment. All skin types and colours can have this treatment without any risks or side effects.

Lose Deep Set Smile Grooves with Dermal Fillers at Selston - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Our skin is constantly under attack from the wind, sun and cold weather, emotional and hormonal changes and just the simple passing of time. All of these things will, over time, wear away at its structure, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and a loss of volume.

Some people think that facial fine lines and wrinkles are a sign of character, but others just want to reverse time and regain their fresh, youthful looks. There's no part of the body that's more susceptible to the unwanted effects of facial ageing, making dermal fillers an amazing weapon to fight the ageing process. Fillers can add volume to the skin, smooth away unwanted facial lines, creases and wrinkles and help the skin to regain its youthful look.

Nasolabial folds are the creases running down from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Dermal fillers are an ideal treatment to reduce these lines and grooves on the face, they're a versatile product, and they are safe, effective and long-lasting. Smile lines usually begin as faint lines that can eventually turn into deeper creases over time. Dermal fillers fill in the lines and creases, plumping up the skin to give you a more youthful appearance. They add volume, rehydrate and fill in folds and wrinkles by replacing hyaluronic acid and stimulating collagen production.

Dermal fillers can do much more than smooth out wrinkles, they can also help to:
  • Reduce the smile and laugh lines around the mouth
  • Restore and enhance volume to sunken cheeks or the temples
  • Reduce vertical lip lines
  • Minimise dark circles under the eye
  • Smooth out a chin crease
  • Plump up and add a natural fullness to the lips
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Restore lost volume in the hands, making them look younger

Smile lines are a particular problem for some people, and unfortunately, sometimes they're genetic and run in the family. Creases that stay on the face even after we've stopped smiling are more likely to become prominent in slender and older people. The severe nose to mouth lines create deep creases or folds which are very noticeable, but softening or reducing them with dermal fillers can smooth the face, making it look rejuvenated, while still keeping a natural feel, allowing the facial features to shine through.

Dermal filler treatment for correcting smile lines normally takes around 20 - 30 minutes and a local anaesthetic injection is usually given to minimise any discomfort during the treatment. There's no downtime and you can immediately go back to work or resume your normal activities. The results are visible straight away, with further improvements becoming noticeable in the following week. Dermal filler injections last for around 9 - 12 months, and over time they are naturally absorbed back into the body.

Get Amazing Six-Pack Abs With Vaser Hi Def - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

If you are finding the dieting and exercising routine is taking too long, and you want those visible six-pack abs now, rather than later, because:
  • You are going on holiday soon and you want to take off your shirt without embarrassment.
  • Perhaps you're trying to impress a potential partner, but realise that your podgy tummy is unattractive.
  • The rest of your body looks in proportion – except for your tummy area.
Whether you're working towards a long-term goal or maybe you just need a helping hand before a special occasion, Vaser Hi Def will give your body amazing results. So for the women who want a sexier, feminine body or men who want a more athletic, defined torso, then Vaser Hi Def is the answer for you.

Vaser Hi Def Lipo is different from Vaser Lipo; while Vaser Lipo treatment removes stubborn fat that refuses to shift despite continued diet and exercise, Vaser Hi Def is an advanced form of liposuction that eliminates fat from specific areas, enhances the well-toned muscles and tightens the skin. It's an ideal treatment for those wanting a sleek, sculptured athletic look, and it can easily remove unwanted fat from practically any body area such as the abdomen, chest, hips/love handles, waist, knees, back, calves, chin and arms.

This man (photo above) had always wanted defined abs, but after constant visits to the gym he was still finding it impossible to make it happen. After a Vaser Hi Def treatment at Selston Cosmetic Clinic, he got abs that he could only dream about. This kick-start has saved him from feeling demoralised after hours of work in the gym with hardly any results, and instead he will carry on working out, knowing that he now has a solid base to improve on, making his abs more impressive than ever before.

Vaser Hi Def gets performed under local anaesthetic and our expert doctor works with the existing contours of the body, making them more defined and noticeable. It works best for those with good muscle tone, but who need more help getting the definition they want, and it’s a great treatment for men who want to see more of a contrast between their abs. Vaser Hi Def treatment is ideally suited to those who are mild to moderately overweight, have good muscle tone, and have a BMI less than 30.

This man (photo above) left the Selston Cosmetic Clinic after treatment to give him defined abs, in just a couple of hours. As well as losing unwanted body fat and gaining muscle definition, he also started feeling a sense of pride in his appearance.

Vaser is minimally invasive, using tiny cannulas to drain away fluid. You’ll experience only the smallest amount of swelling and bruising in the treatment area and the results are instant. For a few weeks after the Vaser Hi Def, the fat deposits will continue breaking down, passing out of the body.

The end results of Vaser Hi Def are amazing, allowing men to look like they've been working on their six-pack abs all their lives, with everything perfectly honed and chiselled.

Rejuvenate Your Face & Body at Selston - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Another birthday, another year older, but that doesn’t mean you have to look any older. It's amazing how just a few tweaks in your appearance can make a big difference in staying looking younger than your years. Sometimes we take a good long look in the mirror, and realise that now is the perfect time to begin a beauty overhaul, and at Selston, we have some great treatments that will give your face and body a fabulous, new fresh look! So now you have thought it - do something about it!

Take a look at the treatments we offer at Selston Cosmetic Clinic and give us a call to ask us about botox, lip augmentation, rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) PDO thread lifts, chemical peels and vaser lipo. Cosmetic treatments are now more popular than ever, with lots of celebrities bringing awareness about cosmetic treatments to our attention.

Lots of people are seeking non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments such as:

Facial lines can make you look tired, but botox injections can relax the face, making you look younger and more rested. Botox reduces the lines and wrinkles of the face, the wrinkles between the brows, lines and creases on the forehead, crow’s feet, bunny lines, smoker’s lines around the mouth and unsightly neck bands.

Chemical peels
These are great treatments for skin imperfections, such as acne, scarring and ageing. Chemical peels can improve the skin by stimulating new cell growth and collagen production to effectively reveal younger, fresher looking skin.

This is a relatively gentle treatment that we can use on the face, neck, hands or body to rejuvenate and improve skin quality, colour and tone. We exfoliate the chosen area by applying a fine mist of crystals which gently dislodges dead and dull cells from the upper layer of the skin, whilst a vacuum suction simultaneously removes the crystals and dead cells. Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types, has very little risk for side effects, and needs no downtime.

Dermal fillers

We use fillers to combat volume loss on the cheeks and the tear troughs under the eyes. They also help to reduce fine facial lines and creases, making the skin look smooth and supple. As we age, our face will naturally lose subcutaneous fat, causing the facial muscles to work closer to the surface of the skin, making smile lines and lip creases become more obvious.

Dermal fillers on the tear troughs
Lip enhancement involves placing the dermal filler over the borders of the lips and lip augmentation places the filler into the body of the lip. Lip augmentation improves the volume, structure and shape of the lips and can also reduce fine lines around the lips. Combining both treatments means a balanced look can easily be obtained.

Vaser lipo
Vaser can remove unwanted fat from stubborn areas, resulting in a smoother and slimmer silhouette. It's ideal for treating love handles, rolls of fat around the bra line, tummy, thighs and even delicate areas such as the arms and under the chin. On men, it's very popular for taking away unwanted fat on the chest area, known as man boobs.

Vaser lipo on Man Boobs
We find that these days the popularity for non invasive procedures has never been more in demand. Injectable procedures like botox and dermal fillers, and body contouring treatments like vaser lipo, have never been more popular or more accessible. At Selston, non-surgical treatments are achieving impressive results with minimal down time.

Botox Injections To Stop Excessive Armpit Sweating - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Sweating, perspiring, it what you like, it’s a natural bodily function and one of life’s necessities that we all have to put up with. Sweating keeps us cool, but it also helps our body to battle against infection and balances our hormones when we get stressed. When normal everyday sweating becomes excessive, this means that your body sweats more than it needs to. Excessive sweating under the armpits can cause lots of embarrassment, it can limit our social activities, limit the clothes you can comfortably wear and massively affect our confidence and self-esteem.

There are many reasons why we sweat:
Hot weather - We sweat when we get hot or humid weather, and as the sweat evaporates, we cool down.
Illness - We perspire when we have a fever, this is our body's way of fighting off an infection.
Exercising - When we exercise our body temperature rises and to get rid of the extra heat, we sweat.
Menopause - Our body's internal temperature gauge rises when our oestrogen levels drop.
Spicy food - Capsaicin is the compound that gives the heat to spicy food and this makes us sweat.

Severe sweating that we can't control with an antiperspirants, is also known as hyperhidrosis. Worrying about the condition often makes it worse, as once we start thinking about sweating, it then causes us to worry, which can then actually make the sweating worse. Botox is usually used for treating facial wrinkles, but it's also used to treat excessive sweating.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we offer botox injection treatment for hyperhidrosis, performed by Dr Bassi who is fully trained in this particular procedure. He uses a very fine needle to inject small amounts of botox under the skin near the sweat glands, which are responsible for excess perspiration and it works by blocking transmission of the nerve impulses to the sweat glands, slowing down the amount you sweat.

Botox benefits for excessive underarm sweating:
  • The treatment offers immediate relief
  • Excessive sweating and the odour are completely eliminated
  • Repeat injections can easily keep up the results
  • Unlike with medication, there aren't any negative side effects
  • Injectable treatment, non-surgical and no downtime
  • More cost-effective than using oral tablets
In most cases the botox treatment for excessive sweating takes effect within a matter of days, and the results can last up to 9-12 months, with repeat treatments often lasting longer. You'll be able to resume normal activities after your treatment, but you should avoid strenuous activities for 24 hours. You might feel slightly bruised in the injection areas for 1-2 days after your treatment.

Improve The Look & Texture of Your Face with Chemical Peels - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Even when your facial features and face shape are perfect, having dull skin can take away any confidence you have about your looks. When we're young, the skin regenerates itself monthly, and as we shed the old, dead cells, we find new, vibrant cells just below the surface, waiting to take their place. The skin renews itself more slowly as we get older, but a chemical peel treatment will speed up the renewing process. 
Chemical peels will remove the dead skin, and any imperfections will eventually disappear. Peels can easily be used to treat a number of problems, including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, mild acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation and tired, dull looking skin. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, we have experienced, fully trained practitioners who will talk you through the skin peel treatment and explain how they will help your particular skin condition.

We get dull skin through ageing, exposure to UV light from the sun, smoking, environmental dirt, dust and toxins, poor skin care and even from genetics. As we age, our face can gain fine lines, open pores, dehydrated skin and a coarse texture, which will all leave us with a dull complexion. Even the most pampered skin can end up looking blemished and old through sun damage, and although we know the damage the sun can cause our skin, many of us still go outside without wearing any skin protection. 
Chemical peels are a chemical solution which cause the top layers of the skin to peel away, and they are usually performed in a cosmetic clinic by a specially trained practitioner or nurse. The peels penetrate into the dermis of your skin, stimulating the fibroblasts deep within the skin, producing new collagen and elastin. They increase the skin cell turnover, which results in improved skin texture and skin tone, making your face look fresher, smoother and more youthful.

Chemical peel can help to;
  • Remove age or sun spots, blotches, or pigmentation
  • Smooth fine lines & wrinkles on the skin’s surface
  • Tighten & tone the skin and improve the texture
  • Brighten the complexion
After the treatment;
  • Apply face cream to keep the skin supple
  • Don't scratch the treated skin as it could cause infection
  • Avoid using sun beds until your skin completely heals
  • Wear sunscreen every day after treatment to keep up the results
Chemical peels are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments used to keep the skin looking young and vibrant, and they are ideal treatments which can easily be combined with other facial procedures.

Define & Contour the Jaw Line with Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Time takes its toll on our face as we get older, and as it goes through so much, it's understandable that sometimes it might need a bit of TLC. As well as changes to the texture of the skin, such as dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, the face also changes shape as we age. Loss of fat in the upper face, plus the effects of gravity can cause the skin to droop downwards, and this can lead to jowls, causing a loss of definition in the jaw line.

The jaw is what separates our face from our neck, but over time we lose definition in the jaw line which blurs the distinction between the two areas. Dermal fillers are able to correct and get back a beautifully defined jaw. A square jaw can look good on some men, who see it as the typically masculine face shape, but jaw line contouring is also ideal for women who have a square shape to the jaw, and want to get a softer, more feminine look.

Over time, the jaw line begins to sag as we lose volume from the face, which causes it to droop and fall forward. The sag can become quite significant, causing a previously straight jaw to change into a wavy one.

Dermal fillers can correct a sagging jaw and help to recover the straight jaw line of our youth. Dermal fillers can easily be injected into the jowl area to disguise the jowls by blending them into the adjacent areas, hiding the jowls and giving the jaw a straighter line.

Dermal filler is a highly successful treatment which gets impressive results. Fillers get injected along the jaw line using a tiny cannula or a small fine needle into the jowl area and this makes the jaw line look straighter. As a result, the male jaw line becomes wider and straighter and more masculine and has a more defined angle at the base of the jaw, while the female jaw line still has a more feminine gentle curve and softness to the contour of the jaw.

A jaw enhancement will benefit:
  • Those with a weak jaw line
  • Men who want a more chiselled jaw
  • Those who can see signs of ageing in the jaw line
  • Those who want a softer jaw line

Enhancing and contouring the jaw using dermal filler injections can effectively alter the outline of the jaw area  This treatment is popular, due to its instant results, natural feel and the easy ability of the injections and the little to no downtime.
