Vaser Lipo Treatment To Remove Unwanted Fat - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Vaser Lipo can easily be applied to almost all body areas and it's especially effective for those areas where stubborn fat accumulates due to ageing and to areas that show resistance to diet and exercise. Vaser Lipo can target fat cells very close to the skin's surface, unlike Liposuction, so it tends to produce fantastic results in more delicate areas such as the neck, underneath the chin and the knees.

Vaser Lipo and Traditional Liposuction are both cosmetic methods of removing fat from the body, but they differ in how they get their results.

* Traditional Liposuction
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that's designed to break apart and remove excess fat cells from areas where unsightly fat deposits have accumulated with the help of suction. It's performed using a cannula which is inserted into the body through small incisions in the skin. This is attached to powerful vacuum-powered equipment and used to loosen and remove the unwanted fat.

* Vaser Lipo
Vaser Lipo is a precision body contouring procedure that tackles specific areas of unwanted fat. It uses ultrasound technology that's delivered by Vaser probes which are very thin, solid and have grooves and they are designed to gently reshape your body. Vaser ultrasound energy dissolves the fat cells but simply bounces off other structures such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue, which are left undisturbed. The dissolved fatty tissues are then eliminated or are naturally expelled out of the body. Unlike traditional liposuction, the skin's condition is improved as the laser stimulates collagen production.

Vaser benefits
  • Its effectiveness and safety is clinically proven and it gives smooth and highly predictable results.
  • Mild and minimally invasive procedure performed using local anaesthesia or twilight sedation.
  • The treatment is suitable for fat reduction on almost all body parts.
  • The results are immediate and continue to improve for up to six months as collagen grows and tightens the skin.
  • There's only minimal pain during the procedure, which aids a quick recovery.
  • Clients can resume normal activities within 48 hours and return to work within a week.
Vaser isn't a weight-loss procedure and it's best suited for those who are relatively toned but may have stubborn pockets of fat that they are unable to lose. As with most cosmetic procedures, you can expect some minor side effects like swelling and bruising and numbness in the treated area can last 6-8 weeks.

Vaser is a popular cosmetic procedure that's generally safe and has proven results. It's a method that sees the permanent removal of fat cells from your body, and if you have good skin elasticity it will help the body adapt to its changing contours quickly. It's an ideal treatment if you're near your goal weight but still have specific areas you want to target for fat removal.

Lip Filler Treatment in Time For Christmas - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

There aren't many of us blessed with perfect lips, some have thin flat lips and others have lines and wrinkles around the edges of the mouth. Sometimes we need a little help to get the lips we wish we had. When people look at us, our lips are often the focus of attention, and the shape and fullness that we would like isn't always there. Like the rest of our body, the passing of time will eventually show on our lips and they'll start to lose volume, we'll notice fine lines and wrinkles around the edges and get lipstick bleeding into the creases.

Sometimes we get self-conscious about our smile, or we notice our lip starting to disappear when we speak or smile, or maybe we simply want to balance out the upper and bottom lip proportions, this is the time to consider dermal fillers. Enhancing the lips can accentuate our facial appearance and dermal filler treatment can put back the volume in the lips and restore their shape. It's a safe, fast and well-tolerated treatment, which leaves the lips looking and feeling natural.

Although ageing plays a part in forming lip lines, the good news is that we can do something about it. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we have had fantastic results using lip fillers to add volume to the lips and to banish lip creases. Dr Bassi is a fully trained cosmetic practitioner in advanced filler techniques, and as no two faces are the same, he tailors every filler treatment to each client.

At the clinic we recommend any of the following fillers for lip crease correction;
  • Restylane range
  • Juvederm Ultra 2
  • Teosyal Fine Lines

The lip procedure takes about 20-30 minutes and there'll be a small amount of swelling afterwards and maybe some bruising. The swelling usually resolves itself within a day or two, but any minor bruising can easily be covered with make-up.

A lip treatment can add volume to the lips and take the lines from around the mouth, it will enhance the look of the entire face and give you some added confidence. With Christmas and the festive party season fast approaching, what better time to enhance the lips so they're ready to pucker up under the mistletoe.

Streamline Fatty Outer Thighs With Vaser Lipo - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

We find that our bodies go through many changes as we get older, and some of these changes aren't all that welcome. Nobody is perfect and we all have certain things about our body that we just don't like, and one of the main things is excess fat. Sometimes we find our clothes size creeping up and we notice some weight gain on our tummy, bottom or face, some of us might get a bigger bust, while others get extra padding on the thighs.

Generally, women tend to store fat in the lower body and the worst problem areas are the hips and thighs. Approximately half of all women are pear shaped, which simply means that their bottom half is larger than their top half. When it comes to the thighs, lots of us feel like we would like a more streamlined shape. Fatty outer thighs can ruin the lines of a great outfit and clothes that cling to that area will just highlight the problem.

It's awful to feel self-conscious about any extra fat on our body, but unfortunately, as we get older, it gets a lot harder to keep these trouble spots at bay. Exercise should always be the first option, we all need to do some work to trim our thighs, but while some women can lose some excess fat, others will minimise but not completely remove stubborn pockets of fat. One way to remove the fat is vaser lipo as it targets our problem areas, safely removing excess body fat in specific areas, making it an ideal way to sculpt, reshape and define the body.

Vaser lipo is an advanced body contouring treatment that uses gentle ultrasonic energy to selectively target unwanted fat, while at the same time preserving other important tissue structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. Tiny incisions are made in the treatment area, and the probe is inserted and ultrasound energy directed into the fat cells. The ultrasound energy breaks down the fat cells and then a suction device is used to gently remove the emulsified fat cells.

After you've had the procedure, it's important to make sure everything is kept smooth, with ultrasound and massages. Post op care is important as it will make sure that the results you get, will continue to stay with you. There are many benefits with vaser lipo; minimal pain, bruising and swelling and the results are immediate.

After the treatment, you'll be left feeling proud of your trim and toned body, allowing you to wear the sort of clothes that you wouldn’t dream of putting on at the moment.

Before & After Photo's - Lose Your Double Chin With Vaser Lipo - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Having a photo taken in profile can really show off an unwanted double chin. Sometimes we see a photograph that's been taken from the side and we're shocked at the lack of definition of our jaw line and chin. Having a double chin doesn't necessarily mean you are overweight, it can also mean that the muscles in the chin and neck aren't as developed as they could be, and as we get older our skin can lose its elasticity, the muscles can lose tone and stretch and our face loses volume. These changes cause sagging to the skin, which is very noticeable in the chin, jowl and neck area.

Three things can cause a double chin;
* Age - Our age can determine whether we develop a double chin. The older we get, the more our skin becomes thin, less elastic and the muscles lose their tone, creating a sagging droopy look.
* Genetics - We might be genetically predisposed to having a double chin. Our genetics can influence the muscle, bone structure and fat deposit characteristics of our face. Some of us naturally retain too much water in the chin area, while others store excess fat. 
* Fat - Having excess body fat is also a cause. Our body stores fat in different places on the body and it's almost impossible to lose fat from just one specific place, so if we need to lose fat from a double chin, we must lose fat from all over.

If there’s anything that makes us look older than we are, it’s the looser skin on the jaw line and neck which will result in a double chin or the dreaded jowls. Getting a double chin can cause embarrassment and might be a sign that you should change your eating habits. It's possible to reduce fat in the chin area with a healthy, low-fat diet and regular exercise or maybe if all else fails, cosmetic treatment could be the answer.

Vaser lipo treatment is one of the gentlest and most powerful form of liposuction available today. As well as removing fat, the ultrasound energy achieves a degree of skin tightening which is particularly effective in the chin area. The vaser probes that deliver the energy are ultra thin, solid and have grooves and when they're inserted into the skin through tiny incisions, the energy will break up the fat. The fat cells become liquefied and then are gently removed. During the vaser lipo treatment collagen production is also stimulated, so over time there will be a continuing improvement.

Before & After - Six Pack Abs Achieved With Vaser Hi Def - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Recently we've seen a huge change in the way men want their bodies to look. Lots of men who don't have a so-called ideal body, get embarrassed and self-conscious, believing that the less muscled and toned they are, the less masculine they are. Celebrities show off their toned arm muscles and washboard abs in adverts for underwear and aftershave, and with images like these used worldwide on TV, billboards, magazines and on the internet, it isn't hard to see why most men might not feel able to match up to them.

Unfortunately, with our busy lifestyles it means that many of us just haven't got the time to spend hours in the gym trying to maintain a sleek toned body and keep it looking in peak condition. But even those who are fit and healthy can find that sometimes, no matter how much work they put  in at the gym, stubborn areas of fat can linger.

Recently at Selston Cosmetic Clinic we had a client who needed our help. He had lost his excess weight and worked hard at the gym, but unfortunately after all of his hard work it was obvious to him that he just couldn't achieve the definition on his abdomen that he was hoping for.

Sometimes we need a bit of extra help and that is where Selston Cosmetic Clinic can help.

Vaser hi def is one of the most advanced forms of vaser lipo, creating shadows and curves, to give the impression of muscular definition, giving the body a toned, athletic look.

Straighten Out Your Crooked Nose With Filler Treatment - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

There are many ways to describe the different shapes of the nose; from cute as a button, beaky or regal. A nose that's less than perfect, whether it's too large, crooked, hooked or generally just misshapen, can affect the overall balance of the face and really affect our self-esteem.

The nose has a central place on the face making it our most prominent facial feature, and as it projects itself outwards it's one of the first things that people see when they look at us. A nicely-formed nose can keep the shape of the face in proportion while not distracting from other features, making it an important aspect to the overall facial balance.

Noses come in all shapes and sizes:
  • Celestial Nose - A celestial, or turned up nose is considered one of the most attractive nose shapes. An upturned or concave nose points upwards at the tip instead of downwards, and whether the nose is big or small it has the tip rising, enabling you to slightly see the nostrils.
  • Nubian Nose - This type of nose shape is often very long with a narrower bridge, wide nostrils and has a base that is very wide. It’s a common shape among certain ethnic groups.
  • Hawk Nose - This nose shape has a deep hook at the tip, pointing downwards towards the lip. The shape of the ridge is often curved. Looking at it in profile, it's much like the beak of a hawk, hence its name.
  • Roman Nose - A roman nose, also known as a hook or aquiline nose has a prominent bridge and points downwards at the tip, but not  as much as the hawk-shaped nose. The word aquiline means eagle-like, likening the nose to the curved beak of an eagle.
  • Snub Nose - A snub nose is short, small and doesn’t usually stick out to any great extent. This nose is small, sloping up at the tip, so that the nostrils are visible. A snub nose is small and button-like with a slight widening that gives it an appealing look.
  • Greek Nose - Greek noses are perfectly straight and generally have narrow nostrils, a nose shape which is very appealing to the masses. The Greek nose tops the list as the most beautiful of nose varieties and models usually have this powerful feature that complements the rest of their face.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we have vast experience doing non-surgical nose jobs. A well-done rhinoplasty can subtly enhance your features and restore facial harmony. It's a cosmetic procedure which can level out lumps, lift the angle of the tip or smooth the bumps on the bridge, but what it can't do is make someone's nose smaller.

Selston Cosmetic Clinic can help :
* A slightly crooked nose
* Straightening a hooked nose
* Softening a bump on the bridge of the nose
* Correcting the nasal tip droop

A non-surgical nose job is a quick and simple procedure, requiring a high level of ability from the cosmetic physician. You can return to work the next day with your new improved nose.

Rosacea - Facial Redness Flushing & Blushing - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Rosacea is one of the most common skin disorders, with a characteristic flushing that comes and goes. It mainly affects the face, causing persistent redness and one of the first signs of rosacea is the tendency to flush or blush easily. The condition causes dilated capillaries, resulting in general redness and well-defined blood vessels. The blood vessels covering these areas enlarge and dilate, producing facial thread veins, also called telangiectasia

Pimples that appear on and around the nose, forehead, cheekbones, and chin can resemble teenage acne and this is known as acne rosacea. Pimples can also occur on the neck, chest, scalp or ears. The inflamed pimples and redness of rosacea can look a great deal like acne but blackheads aren't usually present.

It's thought that rosacea might be genetic and those who suffer are likely to have someone in their family with rosacea. People of all colours can get rosacea, and it's said that women are three times more likely than men to get the disorder, particularly during the menopause. Hot flushes are one of the most common symptoms of menopause and some women find that this can also trigger rosacea for the first time, and unfortunately the symptoms can persist after the menopause is over.

Living with a skin condition can cause pain and embarrassment and be very uncomfortable for the person suffering. Those with skin disorders can experience emotional effects such as isolation, have self-esteem issues and sometimes even get depression.

Signs of Rosacea are :
  • Flushing - A lot of people with rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing. This facial redness may come and go, and is often the earliest sign of the disorder.
  • Persistent Redness - Persistent facial redness is the most common sign of rosacea, and may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.
  • Bumps and Pimples - Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop. While these might look like acne, blackheads are absent and burning or stinging may occur.
  • Visible Blood Vessels - In many people with rosacea, small blood vessels (spider veins) become visible on the skin.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, rosacea can easily be treated using the most advanced laser technology. We provide a state of the art laser treatment, giving effective therapy for this upsetting condition. Our advanced laser system has a cooled sapphire window on the tip of the laser scope to further protect and cool the skin. We can offer topical anaesthetic cream to make treatments as comfortable as possible. Laser treatment causes only minimal discomfort, although some may experience a minor stinging sensation on the skin as we deliver the laser pulses. 

With the use of laser energies and expert technique, we are obtaining excellent results, not only in the cosmetic appearance but also a marked reduction in the upsetting flushing attacks of rosacea

Fill Out Eye Hollows with Dermal Filler - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

We do a lot of things to try and keep our eyes looking young; using creams, concealers, serums, cucumber slices and even used tea-bags. As well as being the windows to the soul, the eyes are also a big giveaway to show others how well we are ageing. As we get older, one of the changes we can expect to notice are the dark circles and deepening of the hollows under the eyes.

The naso-jugal groove, also known as the tear trough, occurs due to the thinning of the overlying skin and soft tissue over the bony orbital rim, and this happens because of the ageing process, genetics or because of sun damage. Tear troughs run from the tear duct and down in an arc underneath the lower eyelid, and it's the loss of volume in the tissue beneath the eye and above the cheek that cause the hollows.

Deep unsightly hollows can now be corrected with advanced dermal fillers, and this treatment will also help to correct the dark shadowing beneath the eye.

Dermal filler is an ideal treatment for:
  • Sunken eyes
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Tired looking eyes
  • Eye bags
Dermal filler treatment fills out the hollows and lines beneath the eyes and helps to mask the dark circles with its light reflecting technology. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we use hyaluronic acid based filler, which is a substance that naturally occurs in the body. These fillers are non animal based and are very safe to use. This treatment will rejuvenate tired looking eyes to create a more youthful appearance that will last up to twelve months. 

Tear trough treatment involves injecting filler into the under eye area, which fills out the hollows. A topical anaesthetic cream gets applied about 20 minutes before treatment starts to minimise any discomfort, numbing the skin and easing any pain. The treatment only takes twenty to thirty minutes to complete and the results are instant. There's minimal downtime, although you may have a tiny amount of swelling as the skin under the eye is very delicate. 

Young looking eyes are a great asset to the overall appearance of a youthful, attractive, healthy face. Having dark hollows under the eyes can make you look older than you are and can leave you looking like you've had sleepless nights. Over time the hollows can change in appearance, becoming longer, deeper and even more shadowed.

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

It's said that women look at their face in the mirror at least eight times a day; to check their make-up is still in place, to see if there are any mascara smudges under the eyes, or lipstick on their teeth. They might want to check a pimple, but usually women check their reflection for a sense of reassurance.

Women usually begin to show signs of facial ageing around the age of twenty-five, and the first signs are fine lines around the eyes and around the mouth. The “number elevens” the two frown lines between the eyebrows are common too.

Botox is a licensed medicine and administering it is an art that needs a high level of ability, along with a talent for the craft. The risk of infection when botox is administered by an untrained person is higher than with a fully trained, experienced provider. When it's not injected properly, or isn't injected in the precise place, then things can quite easily go wrong.

An unskilled person injecting botox could end up paralysing the wrong muscles, you might be left with drooping eyelids and eyebrows, or in the worst case scenario you could even paralyse the muscles that move your eyeball, which could give you long-term problems with your eyesight. Don’t let price be your guide. If you find treatment that's being charged at much less than the standard fee, then it's likely that compromises have been made; either in the skill of the provider, quality of the product or the amount of it that's being used.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we specialise in giving a soft natural look to your face, tailoring each botox treatment specifically for you and your needs. The botox procedure takes about 20 minutes and doesn't need any anaesthetic. It's injected with a very fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. Botox usually takes effect within 3 to 7 days after the injection and usually lasts from three to four months. The lines and wrinkles may look less severe with time because botox helps the muscles to relax.

So put yourself in our hands and your watch crows feet disappear around the eyes, along with those irritating lines and wrinkles around your forehead. Call now for an appointment and find out what we can offer you, and say goodbye to wrinkles.
