FAT DISSOLVING TREATMENTS

Celluerase Cellulite Treatment

If there was an award for a treatment that gave instant results, Celluerase would win it hands down. This minimally invasive method of removing Cellulite, orange peel / dimples, is simply unchallenged for its instant and long lasting results. With short procedure time, minimal downtime and as mentioned, fast results this really is a revolutionary treatment that blows all the creams, lasers and vacuum treatments out of the arena.  Celluerase involves breaking and releasing the fibres with a special microblade. The bands of fibrous connective tissue are separated by subcision allowing the skin to spring back resulting in a smoother appearance.  The results are immediate and once a specific depression is treated it should not need further treatment. Usually around 10 depressions can be treated in one session.

 

What areas can be treated?

Cellulite is most commonly found on the hips, thighs and buttocks but may also appear on the abdomen, breasts or upper arms, which are all areas that can be treated.

 

Are there any side-effects?

Following treatment, the area can be quite red, warm, tender and swollen for the first few days as healing takes place. Occasionally there may be some altered sensation, numbness or tingling within the area, this sometimes takes a few days or weeks to settle.  Although the micro blade used is very narrow, occasionally the treatment may result in a tiny scar. Thickened scars, such as hypertrophic or keloid scars, may occur.  If you have  a tendency for these, it is essential you inform me. Rarely the treatment may result in scabs, blisters or vesicles at the treatment site.  Pigmentation may occur due to the bruising within the skin, it is important to avoid exposure to UV light until healing is complete.

Consultation is required prior to treatment taking place

Fat Dissolving Injections

All of us struggle with areas of fat that we just can’t get rid of. For some of us, even with a healthy diet and rigorous exercise we simply can’t get rid of these stubborn pockets of fat. Many of these issues can be genetic or linked to your physiology – meaning you will naturally always have these pockets of fat.

Fatty deposits can knock your confidence, and often we feel self-conscious because of them. Although these areas have occurred naturally, there are steps you can take towards the body and the shape you want. We encourage a well-balanced diet and a daily exercise, but where this doesn’t work you may want to consider Fat Dissolving Injections. These injections can help contour your body, and fill you with an invigorated body confidence.


What is Fat Dissolving?

Fat dissolving injections are a revolutionary treatment that help dissolve local fat.  They have the potential to remove stubborn and unflattering areas of fat without the need for liposuction or surgery. Fat dissolving Injections work by hydrolysing the wall of the fat cells and the fat cell is broken down and removed from the body via its natural process

 

Adipocytes or fat cells are broken down with the use of sodium deoxycholate solution.  This causes a localised inflammatory response from the body thereby making them release the lipid content from within. The inflammatory response is vital and allows the destroyed fat cells to be removed and excreted via the kidneys.  Once the fat cells have been destroyed by the solution the effect is permanent. 

 

Designed to work on the following areas:

  • Upper Stomach 

  • Lower Stomach

  • Love handles

  • Arms

  • Chin

  • Flanks and waist

  • Inner and outer thighs

  • Underarms and armpits

  • Bra area

What's involved in the treatment?

The treatment can take between 30-60 minutes per session and dependant on the area you will need between 2 – 8 treatments, 4 weeks apart. Some people may see significant results after 1-2 sessions.

Treatment under the neck and chin for example, require 1-3 treatments of 2-3 injections, whilst fat pockets on the hips and thighs and stomach may require up to 8 treatments.

ADVANCED FACIAL TREATMENTS

 

 

Dermaplane Facial                                                        

Dermaplane is the process of deep exfoliation using a sterile surgical scalpel to shave the surface of the skin to remove excess dead skin and Vellus hair.  Many now prefer it to mechanical and electrical types of dermabrasion as is safe for all clients, even pregnant ones.  Whilst removing the skin (which is the main aim of this treatment), it also removes the Vellus hair (otherwise known as 'peach fuzz' or 'downy').  

The benefits are:
Deeper product penetration
Removal of soft facial hair that traps dirt & oils
Smoother skin
Reduction of appearance of acne scarring
Diminished look of fine lines
Instant results
No downtime
Suitable for all skin types

This treatment gives you such an even finish that your make up goes on like a dream.  Perfect preparation for a big night out!

Procedure     60 minutes            £65 

Non-invasive Carboxytherapy facial

 

 

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 circle Improvement in circulation

  • Improved lymphoid drainage

 

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. 

 

Contraindications 

 

  • Not suitable for acne patients who have been prescribed topical medication such as Roaccutane, as these can cause increased sensitivity by thinning the skin.     

  • Not suitable for skin concerns;  Eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, pregnant, breastfeeding, cancer, chemotherapy, skin infections, excessively sensitive skin, open wounds or scrapes.

 

  • Carboxytherapy Facial is a complete standalone treatment, and the following time is advised between other aesthetic procedures;   

  • One week between for Chemical Peels, for sensitive skin 14 days.One week for Botox

  • Two- four weeks for Dermal Fillers

 

 

Procedure     60 minutes            £75 

EYELASH EXTENSION TREATMENTS

All lash extensions are applied using glue by the brand 'Lashbase' and can be applied without a patch test where clients have received a consultation and fully understood potential reactions/sensitivities and have agreed to the required disclaimer.  All clients will, however, be offered a patch test, free of charge which entails applying a few lashes to each eye.

 

Classic Lashes

Classic lashes are simple, beautiful and natural-looking. They are applied on a 1:1 ratio, which means one extension on one natural lash. This allows you to achieve an understated, natural enhancement. 

90 - 120 Minutes..........£80

45 Minute Infills (2 weeks)..........£40

60 Minute Infills (3 weeks)..........£45

Hybrid Lashes

Hybrid lashes are a 70-30 mixture of both classic lashes and volume lashes. Choosing hybrid eyelash extensions gives you the best of both worlds with varied texture and more volume, but without the sometimes-unnatural look of volume lashes.

90 - 120 Minutes..........£90

45 Minute Infills (2 weeks)..........£45

60 Minute Infills (3 weeks)..........£50

Volume Lashes

Volume lashes vary from an extremely natural look which adds some length and volume (2D and 3D lashes), to a very dramatic and full look (5D up). 5D and higher may look like you are wearing false lashes all the time. Though of course the lashes are attached to your natural lashes. So there is no bulky strip or lash separation to be seen.
