What are fillers?

These products consist of stabilised hyaluronic acid which is produced naturally in the cells of the skin. It works by drawing in water and therefore augmenting the skin, thus reducing the wrinkle treated.

What areas can I have fillers?

You can have fillers in the lines that are between your nose to the mouth, The sides of the mouth, the lips, the cheeks, the chin, hollowness under The eyes, nose re -shaping and hands.

How long does it last?

There are different types of fillers. One of them lasts for 6-9months and the other lasts for 12months. The filler for the cheeks lasts up to 18months.

Currently, we have Perfectha, Teoxane & Jeverderm Fillers

Doctor Ohan talks about the Sagging Cheek

A young-looking face has round contours, high cheekbones and a well-defined jawline. There are smooth curves from the cheeks to the edge of the nose, without hollows. As the cheeks lose volume, they sag and drop from their usual position, this leads to the formation of nasolabial folds (the folds from the corners of the nose to the mouth), oral commissures (the folds just beneath the corners of the mouth), and subsequently jowls (the skin that sags beneath the jawline). These changes give the face a square appearance which contrasts with the triangular appearance of the more youthful face.

Patients often present to me complaining of specific cosmetic concerns. They complain of their tear trough deformities (hollowness under the eyes), their jowls, lines running along the side of their cheeks and, most frequently, of their nasolabial folds.

Filling in the cheeks is another solution to filling in the nasolabial folds as treating the cause of the problem itself should ensure longer lasting and more natural results and lifting of the overall face. So when I see my clients, I explain to them in front of the mirror what are the changes happening on their faces and how dermal fillers can restore the volume loss to achieve more natural and youthful results. I also show them before and after pictures for similar areas in similar age group.

After that, I put a treatment plan which consists of what kind and how much fillers will be used and sometimes the number of sessions. My favourite type of filler is Teosyal Hyaluronic acid based filler which gives instant, visible and long lasting results of up to 18 months. This filler is very safe and effective, it also biodegradable and dissolvable. The treatment takes around 30 min and it is not uncomfortable with slight redness post treatment which can be covered with makeup.

    Olivia says…

    Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. There are many different types of massage, including these common types:

    Swedish Massage. 

    This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.

    Deep Tissue Massage.

    This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.

    Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.

    Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.

    While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:

    Anxiety – Digestive disorders – Fibromyalgia – Headaches – Insomnia related to stress – Myofascial pain syndrome – Soft tissue strains or injuries – Sports injuries – Temporomandibular joint pain

    Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.

    Despite its benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you’re trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.

    How often you should get a massage depends on several factors, including your physical and emotional needs; your stress levels; and your budget.  There’s no question that you will experience the most health benefits from massage when you get massage regularly.  Massage calms the nervous system, improves blood circulation and lymphatic circulation, relieves muscle pain, and helps with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms.

    TEETH PROCEDURES

    Marita says…

    ZOOM Teeth Whitening Only £99

    A Smile is the best makeup anyone can wear

    Maybe you’ve always wanted a beautiful white smile. Or your teeth have yellowed over time. Or you’re not happy with the staining that results from drinking coffee, tea or cola. Whatever your reason for wanting whiter teeth, you’re not alone.

    Just like we all have different hair and skin colour, people also have different tooth colour. Some teeth are more yellow than others, while others yellow with ageing. Your natural tooth colour can also be affected by many factors.

    Surface stains and internal discoloration can be caused by:
    • The natural ageing process
    • Using tobacco, drinking coffee, tea, colas or red wine, and eating pigmented foods such as cherries and blueberries
    • Accumulation of plaque and tartar deposits
    •Ingesting too much fluoride (more than 2 parts fluoride per million
    parts water) when teeth are forming, which gives teeth a “mottled” look
    • Treatment with the antibiotic tetracycline during childhood
    • Trauma to the teeth that may cause a brown, grey or black colour

    There are many reasons for whitening your teeth, including:
    • The boost to your confidence and self-esteem that comes from a great smile
    • A younger appearance
    • A special event such as a wedding or job interview
    • To make a positive first impression on others
    • To simply reverse years of everyday staining and yellowing

    Aftercare:
    The aftercare procedure is as important as the treatment and it is strongly recommended clients follow a ‘White Diet’ for 48 hours after the treatment. We recommend clients do not consume anything that would stain a white piece of paper.
    Foods to avoid for 48 hours are:
    Tea
    Coffee
    Red Wine
    Tomato based sauces
    Milk chocolate
    Fruits and vegetables that are high in colour

    How Cosmetic Teeth Whitening Works
    • The treatment lasts two hours which includes a consultation and a colour match before and after.
    • The procedure begins with vitamin E applied to the lip area
    • A retractor is then inserted into the mouth to keep the jaw open
    • A gel is applied directly to the teeth; the client is given goggles to protect their eyes
    • Next, a blue LED lamp is used to active the gel which is left on for 20 minutes.
    • The procedure is broken down into 3 x 20-minute sessions followed by a final 30-minute session. Which take place simultaneously.

    Cosmetic Teeth Whitening Results
    • The impact of the teeth whitening procedure is noticeable
    immediately.
    • The results will vary from person to person, depending on the level of discolouration.
    • The results can be maintained for between 6 – 12 months
    depending on if a regular hygiene routine is followed.
    • Most of our client’s teeth improve by between 4 – 10 shades in one session.

  • THREADING AND WAXING

    Ridha says…

    What is threading?

    Threading is an ancient hair removal technique using cotton thread, practised for centuries mainly amongst the Asian and Middle Eastern regions.

    How does threading work?

    A thin cotton thread is twisted into a double strand which is then swept along the skin in rhythmic movements. The unwanted hairs are secured in the thread and lifted from the follicle with precision & finesse.

    Is threading painful?

    Many of my clients and myself would agree that threading causes less discomfort than brow waxing as it targets individual hairs instead of removing it as a whole strip. Waxing can also break the hairs whilst be being pulled out the skin which will cause ingrowth and if having to repeat the wax over a waxed area, some irritation. Whereas the thread can be run over a certain area multiple times without causing any irritation and also no chance of broken hairs. But of course, every individual’s pain threshold is different so it varies from person to person.

    How long does threading take?

    A simple eyebrow threading can take up to just 5 – 7 minutes, upper lip 3 – 4 minutes and a full face can be completed within 20 – 30 minutes.

    Is Threading better then Waxing or Tweezing?

    Yes! Threading is known to be a superior option to waxing and tweezing. This eastern method requires less discomfort & eliminates the chance of irritation such as wax that is too hot. Threading keeps skin irritation to a minimum, excessive pulling around the eyes is eliminated. One of the major drawbacks of waxing and tweezing is that it’s easy to remove the wrong hairs. Threading offers the best solution as the main attribute of threading is precision.

    How long does threading last?

    Hair is removed from the root so there is a slower regrowth process. Depending on your hair type full regrowth can take from 2 – 6 weeks. Hair will grow back finer and sparse after repeated threading because the hair is pulled out at the root, which causes it to weaken through the process. In the long run, this saves time money and mainly maintenance.

    Beauty-waxing Regular waxing will eventually lead to much finer hair and more sparse re-growth.

    All of our therapists have had advanced training in all areas of waxing.
