What is Botox®?

Botox® is a prescription medicine used to treat a number of conditions within the body.

It works partially on blocking the nerve impulses.

When injected into the muscles it will reduce excessive contractions in the muscle and is most commonly injected into the forehead to reduce frown lines.

How long do Botox® treatments last?

Botox® is a non-surgical treatment, so the effect is not permanent.

However, the results should last about 3 to 4 months, depending on the client.

Am I guaranteed results?

There is no guarantee the desired effect will be achieved but if you use an experienced medical practitioner to administer the Botox®, you can be sure that they work to achieve the best possible results.

How long does the Botox® appointment take?

Depending on the areas being injected the Botox®, the appointment can take around 10-20 minutes and there is no down time needed.

How long before I see a result?

It takes 3 to 5 days to see the initial results of your Botox® injections, and the full effect can be seen after 3 weeks.

What should I do after having Botox®?

After having Botox® treatment, you should avoid lying down for 4 hours and avoid exercising for the rest of the day.

Avoid rubbing the area where you have had Botox® administered.

What are the risks of Botox®?

With Botox, safety is most important: only a qualified medical practitioner, operating within a clean and safe environment, should administer Botox® injections.

With every procedure, there are always some risks but Botox® has been used for more than two decades with a very high safety profile.

By having the injections performed by a medical practitioner, though, you are significantly reducing any risks.

We provide a full aftercare leaflet that you can take away with you after treatment.

Is Botox® suitable for everyone?

You should not have Botox® if you are pregnant or breast feeding as the effects to the baby are still unknown.

A full consultation is required prior to any Botox® treatment and you must be 18 years or older to have the treatment.

Can the area be numbed before the Botox® is injected?

Local anaesthetic is not usually given. Your skin is simply cleansed to prepare for the Botox® injections.

Pain is minimal during the treatment.

How do I make a Botox® appointment?

You should always expect a one to one consultation with the practitioner to discuss your Botox® treatment in advance of the procedure.

During the consultation you can discuss your concerns, ask any questions and most importantly make sure you are comfortable with the person who will be performing your treatment.

We will also provide a detailed analysis of your skin using our Observ Skin Analysis Machine.

How long does Botox appointment take?
Downtime needed

You may notice a few pin prick marks from the needles (which are really tiny).  You can meet up with family and friends and no one would notice a thing.

How long before I see a result?

3 Weeks – your face will look smoother than it probably has in more than 5-10 years but won’t look ‘done’ you can still move forehead and show expressions.

Anti Wrinkle Injections

Neurotoxins i.e. Botox, Azzalure, Dysport , are a natural purified  protein derived from botulinum toxin and are the gold standard treatment for dynamic wrinkles on many areas of the face.They work remarkably well and are great for wrinkles on the forehead, on the bridge of the nose and around the eyes ( “ crows feet”).

They are also utilised on the lower face, for jawline definition, neck bands gummy smiles and the uplifting the corners of the mouth just to mention a few.

They work by blocking messages from the nerves to the muscles, actually deactivating the muscle and with regular intervention will dramatically reduce the creases made on the skin from reducing the muscle activity.

The neurotoxin is administered in minute amounts via tiny gauge needles, shallowly inserted very precisely in specific areas of the facial muscles.

Some may experience redness and  swelling which usually subsides within 10 – 15 minutes of administration, and the majority don’t look like they have had any done at all , however will begin to see results in as little as 3 days , but will have to wait 2 weeks to see full effects. These results should be undetected to others, as a natural result will present with the facial expressions to appear natural.

The treatment usually lasts 4-6 months depending on muscle activity and age of the patient.

Chemical Skin Peels

Revive your complexion with our expertly formulated range of deep acting Skin Peels. A skin peel can rejuvenate your skin to reveal more youthful, softer and smoother looking skin without any of the side effects associated with invasive surgery.

What are skin peels?

They harness the power of naturally occurring acids and active ingredients to deeply exfoliate and brighten the skin. The treatment stimulates new cell growth and collagen production, helping to reveal fresher, clearer, brighter skin.

At the Little Skin Clinic , we offer a variety of industry leading Skin Peels that involve applying a non-toxic chemical solution to the skin that removes the top layer of dead skin cells and encourages new ones to grow, revealing the softer, smoother skin beneath.

What results should i expect from a skin peel?

  • Rejuvenated and brighter skin
  • Revival of dull skin
  • Removal of dead skin cells
  • Even skin texture and tone
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smoother, softer skin
  • Eliminated pigmentation and reduced effects of sun damage
  • Reduction of inflammation and breakouts caused by acne
  • Hydrated and nourished skin
  • Stimulated collagen production for plump and youthful looking skin

To achieve maximum results, our skin experts will recommend a course of skin peels depending on your skin type, tone and condition.

What is a TCA peel?

A TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peel is a chemical skin peel. The depth of skin peeled during the treatment can be adjusted according to the strength of the acid used (15%, 20%, 25% etc.)

Is a TCA peel a deep chemical peel?

A TCA peel above 10% is a medical grade peel and should not be performed by non medically-qualified individuals. This is because it is a medium-depth to deep peel (depending on the strength of acid used) meaning it has the capability to pass beyond the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) and even potentially to the top of the reticular dermis (part of the dermis; the next layer of skin after the epidermis). It is therefore a procedure that should be performed in a controlled environment, by trained medical professionals (a nurse or doctor).

Are TCA peels worth doing?

A TCA peel is a fantastic tool to get rid of sun-damaged skin and allow a completely new epidermal layer to grow. If done correctly, the results can be dramatic. It comes second only to laser resurfacing as a method of getting complete renewal of skin layers.

What are the benefits of a TCA peel?

It will help improve shallow wrinkles and help to smooth the skin. There will be new collagen (the protein which gives skin its firmness) formed within the treated skin. Superficial pigmentation can also be tackled with TCA. Even abnormal cells within the superficial layers that may go on to form serious problems in the future (actinic keratoses etc) can be effectively removed with the appropriate concentration of TCA.

What is the recovery time for TCA peels?

This varies depending on the depth of TCA peel performed. But, typically for a mild TCA (with a strength of 10-15%), the recovery time will be about four days. If a more aggressive peel is performed, or a combination TCA peel, recovery time may be about seven days. There may be some mild redness that persists for a further week, but this can be covered with foundation.

Are chemical peels such as TCA only beneficial for people with problem skin?

No, TCA peels are beneficial for all types of skin. However, caution must be used when applying TCA to darker skin types and the treatment should only be carried out by a doctor in this case. The act of peeling the skin on a regular basis encourages new cell turnover and in the long-term brings about a process known as ‘neocollagenesis’ and collagen remodelling. In short, this means your skin will be tighter, smoother, free of pigmentation and have a healthy glow. An appropriate at-home skincare regime can be used to maintain the results. Topical retinoids such as 0.3% or 0.5% retinol, or retinaldehyde, work well to continue the benefits of peeling. Your practitioner, nurse or doctor can help you to choose the most appropriate maintenance regime for your skin.

Is a TCA peel a one-time solution?

Environmental factors such as UV damage, dehydration and pollutants are a constant strain on your skin. Therefore, performing a procedure like this only once is like going to the gym only once. TCA peels are a slightly heavier procedure and should be performed (depending on strength) a couple of times a year for optimal benefits. If a mild TCA is used, perhaps 3-4 times a year.

How many TCA peels are needed to see results?

If a stronger TCA peel is performed (20% – 25%, or a combined TCA peel) results will be immediate after one session. Weaker strengths may require a course of 3-4, followed by maintenance every few months.

Are TCA peels safe? (for all skin types)

TCA is a medical grade product and is safe if used by appropriately trained hands. As with any procedure, there are potential side effects, such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, prolonged redness, cold sore virus infection, post-procedure contact irritant dermatitis, and even infection and scarring.

But if used by trained medical professionals, these risks are minimal. Remember, this is a medical procedure, not a beauty salon procedure.

How many TCA peels are needed to remove acne scars?

TCA peels are beneficial for mild boxcar acne scarring, or mild rolling scars. Ice pick scars need a special type of medical procedure called TCA CROSS. TCA peels will lead to a mild improvement in acne scar, but for substantial improvement of acne scars, more invasive procedures such as laser resurfacing are required. It is important to remember that acne scarring is tough to treat and virtually impossible to completely remove; it can only be improved. Managing acne effectively in its early stages can help prevent scarring.

What’s in a skin peel? 

At the little skin clinic , we use an advanced range of skin peels called Clinicare Peels, which contains a patented carrier-solution that drives greater absorption of the active ingredients into the skin. This deep-acting technology reduces trauma to the skin’s surface and increases the rate of exfoliation for improved results. Each peel produces a varying level of chemical exfoliation to treat different conditions, classified as light, medium or deep.

Where on my body can i have a skin peel? 

Our range of Skin Peels can be used for the face and almost any other area of the body. We offer specific peels for the hands, neck and décolletage.

Are skin peels safe?

Yes, our Skin Peels are completely safe and undergo stringent testing on all skin types and tones: first by the manufacturers; then by our Medical Standards Team; and finally during the training of our practitioners. During treatment your eyes and hair will be protected.

Do skin peels hurt? 

You may experience a slight tingling sensation as the peel works during your treatment, but this is completely normal.

What is my skin type? 

Below is the criteria for the Fitzpatrick Skin Type scale, which we use at the little skin clinic to determine which type of treatment is best for you.

  • Skin Type 1 – Light, pale white tone. Always burns and never tans.
  • Skin Type 2 – White, fair tone. Usually burns, tans with difficulty.
  • Skin Type 3 – Medium, white to olive tone. Sometimes mild burn, gradually tans to olive.
  • Skin Type 4 – Olive, moderate to brown tone. Rarely burns, tans with ease to a moderate brown.
  • Skin Type 5 – Brown, dark brown tone. Very rarely burns, tans very easily.
  • Skin Type 6 – Black, very dark brown to black tone. Never burns, tans very easily, deeply pigmented.

How will i feel during skin peel treatment? 

A non-toxic chemical solution is applied to the skin surface and absorbed, before releasing the active acid component, which then works from within the skin. This treatment can be used without any problems on the delicate areas around the lips and eyes.

Some peels can lead to light swelling of the affected area or peeling of the skin for a few days after the procedure. A trained expert can give you the advice you need on the right type of peel for you, devising a tailored treatment plan to achieve optimum results.

Is a skin peel treatment right for me? 

Skin peels can be used to treat a whole range of skin complaints, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne and acne scarring, age spots, enlarged pores, dark areas and sun-damaged skin. This treatment is ideal if you are looking to quite literally give your skin a fresh start. Book a consultation with one of our trained experts to discuss which skin peel is best for you.

What happens after a skin peel? 

After the first treatment and starting on your skin preparation regime * you will notice improvements. Your skin will feel softer and look subtly younger. Further regular treatments will ensure you achieve your desired results.

Radio Frequency

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening with Lifting

Radio frequency is one of the safest, least invasive and yet most effective anti-ageing treatment available to people of all skin colours. In our early 20’s we have plenty of collagen in our skin. However, with age our collagen production decreases, so that by the time we reach our mid 40’s it is barely in production and due to the lack of collagen we notice our skin loses elasticity, sags and forms lines and wrinkles. Using the very latest SkinFirst Radio Frequency equipment we can stimulate your own natural collagen and tighten your elastin fibres to bring about long-lasting rejuvenation.

How does the Radio Frequency treatment work?

The radio frequency energy is directed onto the skin through optical gel which is applied before treatment. The radio frequency energy works by heating the dermal (ie lower) layers of your skin without having to pass directly through the epidermis (the surface skin) so that skin is maximally protected. The heat energy being delivered to the lower layers is absorbed by the many water molecules present in this area. The water molecules then begin to vibrate from the energy delivered causing additional frictional heat.

The neurotransmitters to the brain interpret this delivery of heat to the lower layers of the skin as being a perceived threat/potential injury and the body responds to this by stimulating collagen with the further benefit of tightening elastin fibres. This is the body’s natural reparative response and how it would deal with wound healing. The result is tighter, firmer, younger looking skin. There is also a freshness and youthfulness that results from the treatment due to the excitation of the water molecules which produces high levels of oxygenation (water being made up of part hydrogen and part oxygen). Oxygen stimulation below the skin surface promotes general skin health (assisting with acne and other scarring) in addition to the lifting and tightening that the technology is most well known for.

Who can have treatment?

Radio frequency is a safe non-invasive treatment and can be used on all skin types. It is very popular with clients – male and female, over the age of 35, as it is excellent at restoring elasticity, smoothing out lines and wrinkles and bringing about a more youthful looking complexion. As mentioned it is also used to help with acne scarring. So clients range in age from people in their 20’s to those in their 80’s! Men and women, and all skin colours.

What results can I expect and when?

Obviously results will vary depending on skin laxity and condition, which is usually dependent on age and lifetyle. Advice wil be given at your consultation as to what sort of results you can expect and some before and after examples will be shown to you, using the equipment that you will be treated with.

Many clients see a noticeable result even after one treatment and there is a cumulative effect as time passes. Results are often noticed by family and friends after a few treatments. The results are, and look, completely natural; and the treatments provide genuine long lasting effects at a cellular level – not just superficial muscle tightening. Skin looks smoother, fresher, firmer, and more lifted. Skin condition improves and a general healthy more vibrant appearance results – bringing llife back to sallow and dull complexions as well as eradicating lines and wrinkles. We recommend before and after photos are taken throughout your course, so that you can see the improvements.

What areas can be treated most effectively with Radio Frequency?

Best results are usually seen on the face, neck and decolletage. It is good for loose jaw lines, nasal labial folds (those lines from nose to mouth), lines and wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead, under eye bags and circles, and generally skin that has aged chronologically and through exposure to damaging environmental elements such as the sun, smoking, wind in the winter months, alcohol and poor hydration over the years.

How does the treatment feel?

The treatment feels pleasantly warm and comfortable. It is a heat based treatment with the heat being delivered from the inside out, using safe and comfortable technology and administered by a specifically trained therapist. The therapist will work on each area of your face (and neck/decolletage if required) one by one – to raise temperature up to the optimum level for collagen stimulation and results. An infra red temperature aid will enable this to be monitored. You can relax and enjoy it!

How many treatments will I need?

We usually recommend a course of 8 – 10 treatments but this does depend on age and skin condition/laxity. Thereafter occasional maintenance treatments are advised. Your therapist will provide a free consultation and suggest how many treatments are recommended in your circumstances. Sometimes clients elect to have one off treatments for a special event. But for long lasting results (up to 2 years depending on age and lifestyle) a course will be needed. For older clients (60 years and above), for maximum results a second course could be required after the first.

There is no limit to the amount of treatments you can have, and the treatments come with a warning… you may get addicted to the new you and the compliments that are often received!

How long do I have to wait in between treatments?

Treatments can be taken as regularly as twice a week, but most people have treatments every week or every two weeks whilst they are on their course. If your budget doesn’t allow for this you can take treatments monthly. The results will just take a little longer to come through. After the initial course you can take a break and then either book in for another course 3 months later (for older clients or clients with more compromised skin) or you can have occasional maintenance treatments. Don’t forget that as time goes by you are continuing to age and are regularly exposed to environmental hazards which will take their toll and perpetuate the ageing process. These treatments are combating that, but will not last for ever as you are always ageing, so arrange a review session with your therapist once you have completed a course.

What do I need to do in between treatments?

Before treatments you must drink plenty of water so that you get the most out of your treatments. The more water molecules in the skin the easier it is for the skin to heat up and prompt the reparative response of collagen stimulation and oxygen production. Otherwise just turn up with or without make up. Your therapist can remove make up and you will be able to reapply after treatment.

What will happen after the treatment?

After the treatment there will be a more flushed look to the skin. For those with a sallow skin tone this will usually generate a very healthy appearance. For those with initial red skin tones there may be a higher than usual skin colour but this will generally subside quickly (within an hour or two usually). The skin will feel warm but this will cool after a relatively short period. You will feel a tautness and probably notice an improvement in texture and a more lifted look to the skin. Make up can be applied immediately and you can carry on with your day as usual, confident that you are on the path to a naturally younger looking you! Any other questions of course can be answered in a free consultation.

Microneedling

What is micro-needling?

It’s a treatment whereby a device with small needles is pushed or rolled over your face and neck area to create controlled punctures, which force your skin into repair mode. Those with a fear of needles shouldn’t discard this technique straight away as, depending on the device used, the microneedle length can vary from 0.5 to 3.0 mm, which is incredibly tiny compared to a traditional needle. And, these devices are gentle enough to be used around the delicate eye area.

What are the benefits of micro-needling?

When your skin starts repairing itself it turbocharges your body’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, which provides that firm plumpness. It also helps improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks and creates a more youthful skin tone.

Suitable conditions treatable with Micro-needling…

  • Acne scars
  • Cellulite
  • Wrinkles
  • Skin scarring
  • Alopecia
  • Hair loss
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin tone
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Collagen induction
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Face lifting
  • Skin pore improvement

What should you expect from a professional microneedling treatment?

The procedure starts with your face being anaesthetised with topical cream and has minimal downtime. The treatment can be tailored to the specific needs of the patient and can result in just a few hours of redness, mild swelling and erythema (red patches). How many and how often will you need to have a treatment? “The number of sessions depends on the skin condition, but typically you’re looking at 3-5 treatments in 4-6 week intervals with maintenance treatments every 6-9 months.

When can you expect to see results from microneedling?

With in salon treatments the final results might not be noticeable until you hit the three to twelve months mark as boosting collagen and elastin within the dermis takes time. However, as with most treatments it depends on the individual.

When should you avoid micro-needling?

“It can be used on all skin colours and skin types, however it should be avoided if one has an active infection on the skin such as impetigo, active and  inflamed acne or rosacea also those with hypersensitive skin, acute eczema or sun burnt skin should also avoid the technique.

Teosyal Redensity 1: The New Redensifying Treatment By Teoxane

Do you have a tired face? Do you have dehydrated skin?

Have you noticed the appearance of wrinkles?

Trust the new Light Filling ™ Redensifying Treatment by Teoxane with Redensity 1 for a smooth and toned skin that recovers all its brightness.

This innovation in aesthetic medicine, the Light Filling ™ treatment, is a new procedure halfway between filling injections and mesotherapy that allows you to deeply redensify the skin and give it radiance.

Age, hormonal imbalances (post-partum, menopause …) as well as the sun, smoking and a stressful lifestyle, are all factors that lead to skin aging. At any age, the loss of radiance on the face accentuates skin aging.

The complexion appears dull, the signs of aging appear more marked, the skin texture is less compact, wrinkles and furrows appear. All of these factors create shadowy areas on the face and the skin gradually loses its ability to reflect light. The face then appears sad and tired.

Produced by the Swiss company Teoxane, the Light Filling ™ skin redensifying treatment with Teosyal Redensity 1, has an exclusive and patented formula, and contains components naturally present in the skin, which act in synergy:

  • Hyaluronic acid: for optimal hydration
  • Dermo-Restructuring Complex: 8 amino acids, 3 antioxidants, 2 minerals and 1 vitamin whose combined action promotes skin restructuring and regeneration
  • Lidocaine: anesthetic for greater comfort during the injection.
  • Teosyal Redensity I, is an effective and safe skin re-densification treatment, which helps to achieve healthy skin and fight the signs of fatigue in a perfectly natural way.

Skin re-densification treatment with Teosyal Redensity 1 is indicated for the face, neck and décolleté and is suitable for any age, when the first signs of aging appear:

  • Tired and drawn features
  • Loss of tone and brightness of the complexion
  • Wrinkles and skin depressions
  • Dehydrated skin

The protocol, simple and effective, requires at least 3 sessions at 3-week intervals to be repeated twice a year, in spring, and after summer, also to correct excess exposure to the sun after the holidays and to improve radiance of the skin and achieve general rejuvenation.

Teosyal Redensity 1 comes in 1ml and 3ml syringes (3ml is enough for full face and neck). Prices start from £170 (or 450 for 3 sessions) for 1ml and 300 (or 750 for 3 sessions) for 3ml.

Profhilo® is a revolutionary anti-ageing injectable moisturising treatment that works beneath the skin.

Profhilo® uses pure hyaluronic acid to improve and restores skin firmness by providing ultimate hydration to remodel ageing and sagging skin tissue whilst also having a tightening and lifting effect. From £185, the unique treatment can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity and:

  • Rejuvenate tired, dull and ageing skin
  • Stimulate the production of collagen
  • Increase firmness and elasticity by plumping the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Natural looking results to reveal healthier, softer, younger looking skin.

Expensive face cream is no longer cutting it, there’s a new treatment on the block . It’s called Profhilo and it’s a series of small injections to the face that rehydrate and re-texture crepey skin in a way that no topical lotion could do. Less daunting than Botox, and less extreme than fillers, it is essentially moisturiser in a jab. You could call it “tweakment light”.

Profhilo has been the secret weapon of beauty editors for some time. Indeed, all the beauty insiders I know (even the ones who eschew Botox) have had it. I liken it to putting the most flattering Instagram filter on your skin.

PROFHILO won the product innovation award and was commended in injectable product of the year at the 2016 Aesthetic Awards.

Profhilo is not a dermal filler or biorevitaliser – Profhilo has opened up a new injectable category – bioremodeling.

PROFHILO is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid based product for treating skin laxity.

It not only works on boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.

As a stabilised product PROFHILO lasts in the skin around 28 days. During this time the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by the slow release of hyaluronic acid.

The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement and tightening/lifting effect of the skin tissue.

Fat Dissolving Injections

Deso Face and Deso Body Fat Dissolving Injections

Fat dissolving injections , Deso Face and Deso Body fat injections could be the solution that you have been looking for. If you have some stubborn fat on your body or face that just won’t budge no matter what you do, then these injections could be something that you need to consider. The injections liquefy the fat and permanently destroy them before being removed through the lymphatic system.

How Does It Work?

The fat dissolving injection will be injected into the fat deposit using a needle. This then causes the fat to liquefy and break down before they are removed through the lymphatic system. The process of removal can take time, so you could be looking at a few weeks
before you are seeing the kind of results that you are looking for due to one of the ingredients in the injection taking time to work in the tissue.

Where Can It Be Injected?

The simple answer is wherever there is stubborn fat, the Deso Body fat dissolving injection can be used. Some of the most common areas that people choose to have treated are back fat, double chin, thighs, stomach, and bottom, but this is not an extensive list. If the area that you want to be treated is on your face, then you are going to need a different injection to the one for your body.

What To Do Before

Before you have this treatment, you need to make sure that you are fully informed about the procedure, so you know exactly what you expect. You can go through all of this with the practitioner as well as ask them any questions that you might have.

Make sure that you aren’t taking any kind of anti-inflammatory such as Ibuprofen for at least five days before you have your treatment. You also want to try and avoid alcohol for a couple of days before your treatment to reduce the risk of any bleeding. Make sure that you have disclosed any and all medication and other relevant medical information that your practitioner may need to know. There are some cases where you might not be eligible for this treatment, so do check this out with the practitioner before you book your treatment.

What To Do After

Try not to complete any kind of high intensity or vigorous exercise for around four weeks after your treatment and do not apply any kind of cosmetic to the area for at least 24 hours. Your practitioner will go through all of this information with you, but you do want to avoid any kind of extreme hot or cold temperatures.

The procedure

After marking the areas of unwanted fat deposits when in a standing position, the skin is disinfected and I inject the solution by a cannula directly into the fat tissue. Other methods used for cellulite treatment only affect the superficial layer of fat and cannot penetrate the deeper layers of fat within the tissue. With intralipotherapy the solution is placed directly in all layers of the fat tissue and thus fat tissue is destroyed more thoroughly.

Is the treatment painful?

Because of using needles and the length of the cannula used there may be some discomfort, however local anaesthetic is used to make you as comfortable as possible.

To whom do we recommend the treatment?

The treatment is recommended to people who wish to rid themselves of unwanted fat deposits. This is not a weight loss treatment however, nor a skin tightening treatment but a volume reduction treatment which dissolves fat deposits. Weight loss can be carried out along with the treatment if necessary and advice is available.

Which body parts can be treated?

  • Double Chin
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Inner side of the knee or Thigh
  • Flanks

Can cellulite be treated as well?

The treatment is not intended for cellulite removal but an excellent cellulite reduction effect has been noted.

How many treatments are needed and in what intervals?

2-5 treatments are recommended in average, depending on the region and the amount of fat tissue although minor deviations are possible. It is not possible to predict the exact number of treatments. The interval between the treatments is 2-3 weeks. With smaller areas sometimes 1 treatment may be enough, but cannot be guaranteed.

When are the results visible?

According to the manufacturer initial results are usually visible after the second treatment although minor changes can be visible immediately after the first treatment if a smaller area. It is necessaryto take into account individual reactions. As with all treatments, some people experience side effects after having this treatment, so here are some of the more common ones
that you can look out for:

  • Pain, redness and inflammation lasting a few weeks
  • Allergic reaction
  • Results that are not as expected, such as loose skin or
    stubborn fat.

In order to prevent swelling, respectively improve the results, a lymphatic drainage or support garments are advised after the treatment although it is not necessary.

Is there anyone unsuitable for this treatment?

It is unsafe for anyone who is:

  • pregnant or breastfeeding
  • has an autoimmune disease
  • has any liver conditions
  • or are under anti coagulation therapy

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are a minimally invasive non surgical treatment involving a medically developed solution with hyaluaronic acid , which is a natural component of the skin Injected under the skin with a fine needle to enhance facial features and plump and fill lines, grooves or sunken areas, associated with ageing.

Dermal Fillers are used to treat a range of skin concerns, including lack of volume and shallow to deep wrinkles and folds, such as smile, tear troughs, marionette and lipstick lines and those on the corners of the mouth, chin, neck, décolletage and hands.

They can subtly smooth, soften, contour and tone the skin; restore youthful plumpness, revitalise add volume ,moisture and enhance and define your features.

Using the natural contours of your face as guidance, skin filler is an artiststry, designed to enhance and mould to compliment your natural expression.

The results are immediate, and tend to last between 9-18 months Dermal fillers are biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body.

After your dermal filler treatment, your skin will be firmer, hydrated and restored with a younger and fresher look. Treatments with dermal fillers do not affect facial expression and the benefits can normally be seen instantly. Recovery time following dermal filler injections is short and you will be able to continue your normal life after the procedure with little or no disruption

It is important to me to achieve the results you desire and meet expectations prior to filler artistry, a comprehensive consultation is undertaken ,where I can take a full medical history, assess your skin, we can discuss and I can advise what we can achieve ,at all times you are incomplete control over your treatment Including different products suitable for different depths of skin wrinkles, volume loss ,moulding lips etc ,timings and costings.

Popular treatments include adding volume to the cheeks and lips, contouring lips , jawline and noses . Fine lines ,shadows and wrinkles are often treated to marionette lines , smokers / whistle lines ,around the lips ,eye and tear troughs ,and also to décolleté and hands to plump and smooth .

If you are not happy with the treatment it is reversible using a technique with dissolves the filler immediately.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine
treatment.

Mesotherapy employs multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic preparations, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients into subcutaneous fat. Mesotherapy can also be used to fade acne marks and scars over time, particularly if your skin surface is pitted, as hyaluronic acid with the solution helps to create volume in the skin, while other antioxidants and amino acids have an antiinflammatory effect that encourages healing.

How mesotherapy works

The principle behind mesotherapy is allowing substances to penetrate deep into the skin to reach the areas that creams cannot. Rather than using injections, a weak electric current helps guide chemicals like hyaluronic acid and vitamin solutions deep into the skin by opening up tiny channels.

Mesotherapy can instantly improve dull, tired looking skin and superficial wrinkles but can also help to improve sluggish blood circulation, aiding the body to flush out ageing toxins.

  • After a course of Mesotherapy injections your skin will look hydrated, glowing, radiant and firmer.
  • For Mesotherapy to be most effective a course of 4-6 treatments are recommended at 2-4 week intervals.
  • There may be some superficial swelling and signs of tiny needle marks after treatment which will settle in 24-48 hours. This may take a little longer around the eye area so clients may need a little recovery time.

Carboxytherapy

This minimally invasive treatment can offer long lasting skin improvements such as:

  • Elastin stimulation
  • Tissue tightening and brightening
  • Skin regeneration
  • Reduction of dark under-eye circles
  • Improvement in circulation
  • Improved lymphoid drainage

What is the principle of CLINICCARE carboxytherapy treatment?

By infusing carbon dioxide into the skin, an acidic environment develops. This signals our organism to secure oxygen to the tissue in the treated region and accumulate natural growth factors (vascular endothelial growth factors). Within several days after the treatment there is an increased natural distribution of oxygen in the places of application, a completely new microcirculation is created, lymphoid drainage is increased and in this way skin regeneration is achieved in a natural way.

I had an amazing carboxyl mask facial with Jane and will definitely have it again. My skin looks and feels lovely and has a nice glow. It's clearly made not only a visible difference, but I can really feel the benefit after it too.
