Party season is just around the corner and while for some it may conjure up happy thoughts of merriment and fun, for many women party season brings added stress not only on their bank balance, but also on their bodies as they strive for perfection.
Christmas is the season that we are constantly placed in front of the camera and no-one wants to look back and feel embarrassed about how they looked during the most celebrated time of the year.
So whether it’s lumpy legs or lack-lustre lips that you want to tackle, The Clinic has a range of straightforward, non-surgical and non-invasive treatments that can help ease minds, restore confidence and keep your body beautiful enough to rival Elle Macpherson, without having to go under the surgeon’s knife.
As we age, facial fat loss, gravity, and loss of the skin’s natural elasticity conspire to reverse this triangle’s composition, leading to a narrower, less youthful forehead and temple area, and a wider, heavier jawline. Luckily, The Clinic has recently introduced a brand new treatment, Juvéderm VOLUMA, that promises to create lasting natural-looking facial contouring that will ensure your face matches your beach body.
Juvéderm VOLUMA, is a simple procedure that can restore the face’s balance and heart-shaped proportions, volumising facial hollows and lost volume and re-contouring the cheeks, cheekbones, and the area around the nose for a fuller, softer, more youthful appearance.
This non-invasive procedure delivers real results without going under the surgeon’s knife. The earlier you receive this treatment the better, so consult a therapist as soon as possible to ensure you look like a younger version of yourself for Christmas and beyond.
If you want to pucker up this party season, under the mistle-toe or otherwise, dermal fillers may well become your new best friend! There are different fillers for different parts of the face. The Clinic offers two types of dermal fillers for the perfect pout: Juvéderm and Volbella. Upon an initial consultation, a medical practitioner will decide which of these will work best for you as an individual, depending on your facial characteristics and cosmetic needs.
Juvéderm is a well-known dermal filler which can last for 6-12 months. It’s also the first filler of its kind to contain an anaesthetic to make treatment more comfortable. Volbella has been specifically designed to produce natural, soft lip rejuvenation and contour.
Cellulite on legs is a concern for many women and is hard to shift. The Clinic offers a treatment called Endermologie LPG to address this issue. A non-invasive technique, it reduces the appearance of dimpled cellulite skin, which often appears on the thighs and upper legs, even in those who are fit. More often than not liposuction fails to address the top layer of fat under the skin where cellulite is found, which is why Endermologie LPG is recommended by surgeons as a pre and post liposuction treatment.
This treatment involves the use of a hand piece vigorously ‘rollered’ around the skin and targets the connective tissue just beneath the surface. It is able to go much, much deeper than the therapist’s hands, with specific manoeuvres tailored to treat different cellulite types.
Benefits include reduction of water retention and bloating, breakdown and elimination of fat cells, detoxification, cellulite reduction and the stimulation of collagen to produce stronger, firmer skin.
This treatment is most commonly used on legs and can tackle the appearance of thread veins which usually appear near the surface of the skin. Sclerotherapy is carried out by a skilled practitioner who injects a solution into the unsightly vein using a micro-needle which causes the vein to collapse and then fade from view.
The treatment takes around an hour, is pain free and is suitable for all skin types. Sclerotherapy takes no recovery time so many clients undergo it during their lunch break. It takes six to eight weeks to see full results, so now is the perfect time to have this treatment and get you ready for baring your legs at the Christmas parties.
All procedures are administered by a fully qualified aesthetic practitioner. Prior to any treatment, the experienced team at The Clinic will discuss the process and talk through any questions or concerns you might have.
