Dermal Filler For Beautiful Enhanced Lips at Selston - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

If you're dissatisfied with the way your mouth or lips look, then you’re not alone. Many of us dislike our smile lines, the marionette creases, the lip shape and smoker's lines. As we get older, our face starts to lose volume and elasticity, making parts of our faces, such as the lips, look flatter and thinner.

Lip augmentation treatment can;
  • Add more volume to thin lips
  • Balance out uneven lips
  • Create a pronounced cupids bow
  • Define and shape the lip border
  • Reduce fine smokers lines
Lip fillers enhance the lip volume for those people who are unhappy with the size or shape of their lips. We might want to balance out the upper and bottom lip proportions, or feel self-conscious that the lip appears to disappear when we speak or smile. The lip fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, and this helps the skin keep its softness and moisture, while increasing the volume.

The natural shape and structure of your lips will influence the shape and volume that the practitioner can achieve. Extra volume on lips which are already full usually gives great results, however this might not look as good on thin lips. We also have to consider the age of the client, and visualise what will look good on a young woman might look out-of-place on the more mature woman. The younger client often go for a fuller pout, where older women want a bit of volume, as well as rejuvenation of the area around the lips for a more natural result.

There are many ways to enhance your lips, depending on what you want the result to look like, and you and the practitioner will decide which look will suit your face.

At your appointment your practitioner can inject;
  • Both lips
  • Add volume into either the top lip or the bottom lip
  • Plump up both lips and the vermillion border
  • Enhance the cupid's bow

Women of all ages come to Selston to have their lips enhanced, with the younger women usually wanting a fuller looking lip, while the more mature women usually opting for a more subtle look. As we age, the upper and lower lips become less full, the cupid’s bow can become flatter, there's less definition on the borders and the mouth can start to droop downwards at the corners.

One of the most common reasons that clients come to see Dr Bassi at Selston Cosmetic Clinic is because they are unhappy with their lips. Dr Bassi can enhance their size and shape with dermal fillers, giving the lips greater volume and a fuller appearance.

Look Your Best with Face & Body Treatments at Selston - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

We all like an evening out, getting dressed up in a beautiful dress and our make-up applied to perfection, but it's underneath the glamour where the hard work has happened to get us looking great. High-definition photo's that we put on our social media, means that every detail of our face and body is there for everyone to scrutinise.

There are lots of treatments and procedures available that can get us looking fabulous.

Laser hair removal
High definition cameras will pick up embarrassing facial hair, making laser hair removal an ideal treatment to have before a special occasion or a big night out. Hair removal on body area's such as the legs, bikini line, facial hairs, arms and armpits are easily treated, making the skin smoother. Laser treatment is a safe and effective way to reduce unwanted body and facial hair.

Sometimes lips are thin; maybe thinning because of ageing or they might have always been a bit flat, but they don't have to stay that way. To get plumper lips just a small amount of hyaluronic acid can make a big difference, and as well as adding volume, lip fillers can also improve the lip borders and give the lips definition.


Vaser lipo
When you're on an evening out wearing a tight fitted dress, any small pockets of fat on the tummy and hips will show, but they can easily be removed with vaser lipo, so there aren't any noticeable lumps and bumps. Vaser can also remove fat from a double chin, and take fat away from the upper arms, helping to stop those bingo wings from flapping.

Microdermabrasion / Chemical peels
Procedures such as facials, microdermabrasion, or chemical peels will take the dead cells from the face, revealing rejuvenated new skin. Regular facial treatments will give the face a youthful and radiant complexion.

Botox and Fillers
Injectable fillers can help to plump up lips and cheeks and a skilled cosmetic doctor can strategically inject botox to erase forehead creases, the frown lines, the lines between the eyebrows and the crows feet around the eyes, giving a natural, softer and relaxed look to the face. Botox injections between the eyebrows can raise them, giving the eyes a more open and less stressed look. Botox isn't only for the face, it's also used to inject into the armpits to prevent sweating, putting an end to perspiration stains around the armpits of your clothing.

So if you have a big night out coming up, or a special occasion where you need to look your best, then Selston Cosmetic Clinic provides lots of cosmetic procedures which will make you feel like a million dollars.

Look Younger For Longer with Botox - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Lots of people embrace their age and are happy moving into mid-life in pretty good shape, but for those who aren't as happy, there are things we can do for ourselves and our appearance, which will help us to stay looking younger, for longer.

Once we reach a certain age, there are ways that our hair can age us. Our skin tone changes as we get older and hair that's bleached too light, or dyed extremely dark can make our face look drawn or washed out. Finding a colour that suits your skin tone and getting highlights or lowlights added will lift your face and brighten your skin. We shouldn't choose hairstyles because they are the latest trend, but rather we should choose them to flatter our face. A face with a loss of collagen in the cheeks, will give the face thinner look, and a hairstyle with softness and volume will be more flattering.

The make-up we wear should change as we get older, as the cosmetics we wear in our twenties, won't work as well when we are over forty. Older women can still wear all the things they have always worn, eye shadow, eye liner, blusher and lipstick, but to avoid looking hard, or harsh, they should choose colours that are lighter and apply it subtly. Instead of eye shadows with a sparkle and sheen, try using eye shadows in matte and softer lipstick and lip gloss.

Clothes are a great way to express ourselves, but don’t follow a trend unless it suits the shape of your body. Always wear clothes that accentuate the best aspects of your body. Buy clothes with colours that suit your skin tone, as choosing the wrong colour can make your skin look dull, while the right colours can make you look vibrant.

Eventually we'll all notice our face is starting to get lines and wrinkles. Lines are usually small and fine, appearing because of repeated muscle movement such as smiling, frowning, smoking and squinting. Lines normally appear underneath and around the eyes, on the lips, in between eyebrows and on the cheeks. Wrinkles on the other hand are static and are more dramatic than lines, and they're located anywhere on the face, neck, chest arms or body, remaining on the skin as visible folds and creases, even when the muscle is relaxed.

Treat your skin well and it look better for longer. If you really want to look tanned - use fake tan. The sun is the absolute worse thing for the skin, not only for ageing the skin and causing wrinkles but also because of the risk of skin cancer. Most of us feel we look better with a tan, so if you are out and about in the sunshine, make sure you use a high factor sun screen.

If you want a bit of extra help to feel youthful and look radiant , then botox injections can really give your face a boost. Easing lines and wrinkles will make the face look relaxed and refreshed. Botox is the best anti-wrinkle treatment available, that takes only minutes to inject, and can take away years from your face.

Younger Looking Hands with Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Lots of women's beauty routines tend to focus on applying face creams and body lotions, but sometimes they forget about their hands, which is the part of the body that shows unwanted signs of ageing the fastest. Most women notice their hands looking older usually when they reach their 40's, but the signs of ageing skin can begin showing a lot earlier if they neglect to use sun protection in their younger years.

The skin on the back of the hands is naturally thin and as they're exposed to the weather throughout the seasons, they experience wind, rain, cold and worst of all excessive sun exposure. Too much sun on unprotected skin causes blemishes, pigmentation and can destroy the collagen and elastin in the skin. 

We start to see ageing in the hands, with things ranging from; wrinkles, liver spots, prominent veins and dry flaky skin, and whilst we all grow older, we don't want to feel that our hands look older than our face. Of course no matter what we do, our hands will age regardless, whether from loss of volume in the natural course of ageing, sun exposure or excessive immersion in water which can lead to dehydration.

Many things make hands look older;

Age spots
  • Age spots are actually nothing to do with age, they are the result of sun exposure. Our hands are constantly exposed to the weather, and even if you've been meticulous with your sun screen applications, discoloration and sunspots will eventually appear. Prevention is always best, making it essential to use sun protection daily and remembering to reapply throughout the day. A professional chemical peel treatment will improve the skin tone, soften the skin, remove dead skin cells and take away brown spots.
Wrinkled skin
  • Wrinkles are an obvious sign of growing older. The hands have very little fat, causing the skin to look paper-thin more quickly and giving the backs of the hands a crumpled look. Because they are often immersed in water, which contributes to dried out and wrinkling skin, the hands need more moisturising than the rest of the body. Professional laser treatments can promote collagen production, which will help plump up your skin.

Dry flaky skin
  • Gentle exfoliation on flaky and dull hands can remove dead skin cells. With those dead cells gone, any moisturisers will be more easily absorbed. Exfoliating the skin with a professional microdermabrasion treatment will remove dead skin cells and your skin will feel softer and look brighter, and will also help to even out the skin tone.
Stained Nails
  • If your hands are starting to look their age, you don't want to have discoloured nails as well. If you do have discoloured nails, as long as it's not because of a fungal infection, it's very likely a harmless side effect of wearing dark nail polish. Using a base coat application on your nails before applying your nail varnish should keep your nails looking better.
If you’re inclined to opt for a more invasive treatment, dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid can help to smooth out the wrinkles and fine lines on the hands, and return some of the plumpness which will improve the skin's quality.

Stay Safe When Choosing Where To Have Botox Injections - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Over the past decade, there's been a big upsurge in people having botox treatments to help keep the fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Practitioners have used botox for over 30 years now and it's a proven safe procedure for facial injections. There are very few side effects associated with botox and allergies are rare. The cost of botox varies from clinic to clinic, and when compared, the cost of botox in top cosmetic clinics in London and the South can easily be double the price of clinics further North.

Botox, indeed any injectable treatment, should always be performed by a medical professional in a sterile environment, and certainly not at home at a botox party. These so-called botox parties are when groups of women gather at someone's home and either self-inject or have botox administered by inexperienced hands, a scenario that can quite easily go terribly wrong. When botox isn't injected properly, or isn't injected in the precise place, there's a danger you could end up with the wrong muscles being paralysed, or you could be left with droopy eyelids and eyebrows, or at worse, the injection could even paralyse the muscles that move your eyeball, which can give you problems that can ultimately affect your eyesight.

Over the last few years there have been multiple reported cases about botox parties which have gone wrong, with untrained practitioners injecting cheap botox that's been purchased over the Internet. Lots of these parties have ended badly, resulting in significant bruising, facial asymmetry and permanent scarring and without any access to follow-up treatment. When botox gets administered by an untrained person, the risk of infection is higher than with a fully trained provider, and if any problems happen afterwards there's no access to follow-up care. Injectable treatment in a non medical setting puts people at risk, with the risks greatly outweighing the benefits.

Those who administer botox should have full training, as the procedure requires a high level of expertise, along with talent and an artistic eye for the craft. If you see an offer for botox that's a lot lower than the standard price, it's very likely that some compromises have been made; either in the skill of the person giving the injections or the amount or quality of product being used. So to remain safe, if you want any cosmetic treatment, it's always advisable to go a clinic where you'll be guaranteed the best service and you'll know that you are having your treatment at a medically regulated premise.

Before & After Vaser Lipo On Male Abs - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

All people are different, they all have parts of the body that they're dissatisfied with. Vaser lipo is a treatment that removes unwanted fat from specific areas of the body, and common treatment areas include the abdomen, flanks, back, chin, thighs, knees and arms. It's an ideal treatment for those wanting improvement of their overall body shape.

These pictures from our clients at Selston Cosmetic Clinic are an amazing testimony to how good vaser lipo is, if used in the right hands. This client had vaser on the abs and with good post procedure care had an incredible result.

Body insecurity is a big reason many people turn to vaser lipo. Many people feel uncomfortable going out in clothes they feel don't fit their bodies right, and it can lead to body image issues which can affect their self-esteem. Vaser enables you to shape and contour parts of the body that you dislike the most, restoring confidence in your body

Even when they are following a healthy lifestyle, lots of people who are overweight can find it hard to keep motivated, when they are not seeing any major results. Vaser can help to give a kick-start in trying harder, as people might find it easier going to the gym when they are not so focused on their body hang-ups.

This man came to us at Selston for vaser lipo of his abs, and although he didn't have vast amounts of fat, what he did have, he couldn't shift. He wanted fat removal and a bit more definition which was easily achievable as he had a good BMI to begin with. He returned a week later looking fantastic, and his result will continue to improve for a few months yet.

Even slim, fit men can have a pot belly, as fat tends to accumulate in this area, and abdominal fat gain will only increase with age, as male hormones start to fluctuate. Removing this unwanted fat from the tummy will make a huge improvement to the overall shape of the body.

Vaser is a very effective treatment, and best of all you’ll see results almost instantly. After the procedure, you'll see your flat stomach straight away, and you’ll carry on seeing the results improving over the next few weeks as the ultrasound energy continues breaking down fat the within the treated area. You will have some swelling after vaser, although it will resolve itself after a few days, and you'll also get bruising around the treatment area, usually fading within a week. After vaser lipo you'll have to wear a compression garment continuously and massage the area to keep everything smooth.

Keep Skin Fresh With Microdermabrasion & Chemical Peels - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Before we can look after our skin, firstly we should do some research to find out what type of skin we actually have. We can have oily, normal, dry or sensitive skin, or maybe a combination of skin types. We all try to take care of our skin, spending time and money on its maintainance, but sometimes our skin care routine is actually the cause of some of our skin problems!

If your daily routine involves using lots of different creams and lotions, it might be time to simplify things. A lengthy complicated skin care regime can cause problems to the skin, causing damage to the skin barrier, which is one reason the skin might dry out or get spots and rashes. 

Microdermabrasion treatment
We should use creams that are appropriate for the age of our skin. What worked for us when we were twenty, just won't be right for our skin in its thirties, forties and older, so we should reassess the products we put on our face. The skin changes as we get older, and where it was probably spotty in our teens and maybe a bit oily at twenty, by thirty we are showing fine lines and wrinkles on the face and in our forties and older our skin can show age spots, become drier and less firm.

A thick heavy cream doesn't mean it's more hydrating for the skin. It can sit on the face and clog up the pores, trapping dead cells, causing spots and leaving the skin looking dull. Weekly exfoliation will remove the dead cells and revitalise the skin and give it a healthy glow. A serum is a much lighter and hydrating option to use on the face with its concentrated ingredients.

Our lifestyle can also have a negative effect on our skin, so to keep our skin in a good condition we have to address certain lifestyle choices.
  • Smoking will dehydrate the skin and give you wrinkles as well as being bad for our health.
  • Excess alcohol causes blood vessels in the face to dilate, resulting in red, spidery veins. Excess alcohol consumption can also exacerbate pre-existing skin conditions such as rosacea.
  • Stress can have a negative effect on the health of our skin, so we should work on reducing our stress levels. Exercise and meditation are great stress relievers and can help to improve our overall health and quality of life. 

Although we should always avoid excessive periods of strong sun exposure, any exposure to the sun has an ageing effect on the skin so we should always wear a high factor sunscreen, even when it's not sunny. Sun damage is the single greatest cause of ageing and can result in freckles, sun spots, pigmentation, wrinkles and at worst it can lead to skin cancer.

A professional treatment can help keep the facial skin in tip-top condition. Regular facials to remove dead, dull skin can really lift the complexion. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels can hydrate and brighten the skin, reduce lines and wrinkles and erase sun spots.

Lose Stubborn Fat With Vaser Lipo - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Sometimes, even when we lead an active lifestyle, there's still weight on our body that we just can't lose. Vaser lipo is a great treatment for losing this unwanted fat if you want a slimmer look, and want to look good in your clothes. 

Benefits of vaser lipo:
  • Excellent body contouring
  • A single procedure gets amazing results
  • Smoother skin and improved skin retraction
  • Removes large amounts of stored fat easily
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Can remove fat from delicate areas like the arms, neck and chin
  • Accentuates and refines the muscles
  • Speedy recovery times

When deciding to have vaser lipo, a face to face consultation is very important with the doctor who is doing the procedure. You will be able to discuss what you would like the vaser to achieve, and the doctor will give you realistic expectations about what exactly is possible to achieve. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, Dr Bassi has vast experience in vaser lipo, and he has constantly performed this procedure since it arrived in the UK in 2008. 

The vaser lipo procedure is better at preparing the fat for its removal than traditional liposuction, and if you're considering removing fat on larger areas of the body, then this is the best method to use. Bigger cannulas can cause more damage to the surrounding tissues and blood vessels beneath the skin, which is why vaser lipo uses small cannulas to remove the fat deposits, causing you less discomfort when it's removed. It also means that only small incisions are made, making any scars minimal. 

You will experience less pain during and after vaser, and the recovery will be shorter compared to traditional liposuction methods. Vaser lipo is an ideal method to use on smaller delicate areas of the body which are difficult to treat, like the neck and the chin.  

These days, vaser lipo is the number one procedure for fat removal and is popular with both women, and men. You have local anaesthetic, meaning you are awake throughout the treatment, but feel no discomfort. You can go home after your treatment -  there is no hospital stay or big downtime, as with traditional liposuction.
After your procedure it is vital to make sure you keep the amazing results, so post op care is very important. Dr Bassi has done his part, so the rest is down to you. For your body to keep it's new trim shape, it's important to wear the compression garment and to make sure that everything is kept smooth with ultrasound and massages for the weeks following your vaser treatment.

Restore Facial Volume & Reduce Wrinkles With A Liquid Face Lift Treatment - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

These days there are so many treatments available to rejuvenate the skin, it's hard to know which one is the best for you. As the years pass by, we start to notice all the new visible signs of ageing as they start to show on the face. The skin loses collagen and elasticity and will start sagging, which will cause us to get jowls. We can also lose facial volume, making the cheeks and temples look flat and hollow, and the lips can become thinner and less defined. Wrinkles and fine lines will also, sooner or later, make their presence felt.

The liquid face lift can address the signs of ageing without the need for any surgical intervention and it's an effective alternative to a traditional face lift. This particular treatment can help men and women look refreshed, without having surgery or getting any scars. It's a fast treatment that's minimally invasive, has long-lasting results and a short recovery time.

The liquid face lift has made an impact in anti-ageing treatments during the past few years, and it helps to correct the upper, mid and lower areas of the face, giving us a refreshed appearance that's subtle and entirely natural-looking. The liquid face lift procedure uses injectable treatments; precisely placed dermal fillers to help increase the volume and shape of your face and botox to ease the wrinkles, folds and creases also helping to prevent more lines and wrinkles forming.

The botox injections will freshen up the face, softening lines and wrinkles, eliminating frown lines, crows feet and forehead furrows. Precisely placed, botox can also give you an eye lift and lift the corners of the mouth.

Dermal fillers
Dermal fillers will add volume; to fill out the cheeks, boost the lips and create a softly contoured, younger 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.

By using dermal filler and botox injections, it's now possible for a skilled cosmetic doctor to help you look younger in a short amount of time. These treatments will help to restore the skin and facial contours back to their former youthful appearance, and afterwards you'll not only appreciate your reflection in the mirror, but you'll also get a boost in your self-confidence.

These days there are more options than ever for making ourselves looking younger. If you want to reduce wrinkles, restore facial fullness and rejuvenate your skin without having a surgical procedure, then a non-surgical liquid face lift is an ideal alternative, which involves no surgery and no scars.
