Christmas will soon be upon us and no doubt many readers will have started their seasonal preparations to ensure the numerous festive celebrations which will take place between now and New Year’s Eve, all run smoothly.
So picture the scene; the house is full of distant relatives you haven’t seen since the last family get together and the camcorder is out to record the moments your family will watch back and laugh at in years to come. Or perhaps you’re getting ready for the endless party invites and worrying about how much you’ve aged in twelve short months since the last round of Christmas festivities.
The last thing you want is for your skin to reflect all of the stress and hard work you’ve put in to creating the perfect Christmas. So if you want to look perfectly polished, like ‘wonder Mum’ Gwyneth Paltrow and don’t have a lot of time to wait for results, then look no further than The Clinic. With a range of non-intrusive and non-surgical treatments, The Clinic has everything you need to see fast results for the festive period and ensure your friends and relatives are more likely to comment on your Turkey dinner rather than Turkey neck!
Botox is one of the best known and popular non-surgical treatments for treating lines and wrinkles. It is used to prevent the muscle contractions that cause furrows and fine lines when the face is frowning or laughing.
The treatment is safe and virtually painless and results are visible within three to seven days, lasting for four to six months. In addition to the treatment of frown lines and wrinkles, Botox is also used to treat excessive sweating, which will inevitably leave you feeling fresher and more comfortable under the watchful eye of your mother-in-law
Over time, dead and damaged cells on the surface of the skin can build up, making the skin look dull and tired. Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells revealing softer, more radiant, and younger looking skin.
Microdermabrasion works for all kinds of skin types and can be used to effectively improve the appearance of brown spots, shallow acne scars, sun-damaged, dull or ageing skin, acne-prone or blotchy skin and fine lines. The results can be dramatic and will ensure the Christmas pictures capture your radiance.
This is a non-invasive technique that improves the appearance of dimpled cellulite skin. While healthy eating, trips to the gym and the extreme measure of liposuction all aide us in weight loss, they unfortunately do nothing to diminish the top layer of fat under the skin i.e. cellulite, which is why Endermologie ® is the treatment often recommended by surgeons pre and post lipo treatment.
Originally devised for injuries to muscles, Endermologie ® is now used as a high tech way of delivering a deep tissue lymphatic drainage massage. Using a hand piece that vigorously ‘rollers’ the skin, it targets the connective tissue just beneath the surface and is able to go much, much deeper than the therapist’s hands, with specific manoeuvres tailored to treat different cellulite types.
We recommend an allowance of one hour for the treatment which is similar to a gentle massage, although some areas with dense cellulite may be uncomfortable. 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.
All procedures are administered by a fully qualified aesthetic nurse 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.
