Obagi Blue Peel Radiance. This treatment is for youif you have been enjoying too much of the summer sun and your skin now looks dull with pigmentation. This peel will help remove the sun damaged outer layer of skin to reveal the healthy skin beneath the dull complexion as well as lighten up the skin. The procedure takes 20 minutes with minimal downtime. The result is a brighter looking skin. Cost £120.
Meso Gun micro-needling with hyaluronic acid. With aging comes loss of collagen and elastic fibres in the dermis of the skin. This shows up as lax skin with fine lines and enlarged pores. Medical micro-needling creates micro trauma to the dermis which stimulates collagen and elastic fibre regeneration. The addition of hyaluronic acid plumps up the skin and increases hydration. The result is plumper looking skin with fewer lines within days. Treatment with the U225 Meso-gun takes micro-needling to a higher level of precision and effectiveness with less pain and bruising for the patient. The procedure takes 60 minutes with minimal downtime. Cost from £200 per session.
Anti wrinkle injections. If your problem is one of more specific forehead lines, frown lines between the brows and crowsfeet lines, botulinum toxin injections are the most effective in eliminating and reducing these. This is the commonest anti-aging procedure carried out across the globe. The injection takes 10 minutes and the effect starts at 3 to 4 days and is optimal from about 2 weeks. The result is a fresher looking upper face with less brow droop and less wrinkles. Cost from £225
Dermal filler injections. In addition to loss of skin elasticity, aging causes loss of volume to facial bone, muscle and fat. One of the most effective ways to rejuvenate the face is to replace the volume. Synthetic filler injections are effective, safe and easy to perform. The common areas for volumising are temples, outer brow, cheeks, midface, lips, jowls and lines extending from the corners of the mouth to nose and chin. Injections take 10 to 45 mins and the effect is immediate. The result is a natural looking fresher face. Cost from £375.
