“Glamour is about feeling good in your own skin.” – Zoe Saldana. For a woman, skin is one of the most important aspects of your body; good skin emits confidence and with it comes a higher self esteem. Maintaining and managing the natural beauty of skin is a daily routine for most women around the world but it may feel like a losing battle when the effects of age begin to show. With skin being the first aspect of our bodies to show signs of ageing it can usually lead to lower confidence as our youthful exterior begins to slip away. The two types of ageing that can affect our skin are intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic is the natural ageing process which leads to wrinkles, dry skin and sagging skin. Extrinsic is the premature ageing of skin which can be caused by numerous factors such as smoking, over exposure to the sun, sleeping positions and repetitive facial expressions. Extrinsic ageing is much more preventive, stopping smoking and ensuring that your skin is well protected while out about in the sun will help you reduce ageing caused by external factors. With natural ageing you may be able to recoup your natural glow with expensive face creams that are usually advertised by a-list celebrities but sometimes the costs do not guarantee the results. To truly conquer the causes and effects of ageing, you may want to consider one of our newest treatments from Restylane; Restylane Vital. Restylane Vital, also known as Skinboosters, is created using hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found in our skin. As we age the body produces less and less of this acid meaning that our skin loses volume, elasticity and a youthful exterior. Our Skinboosters treatment is injected into the skin through the use of microinjections and contains this HA in order to succeed in nourishing and hydrating the skin from deep down to improve the skins surface and aesthetics. This innovative new treatment offered by us means that improvements in the skins surface are produced through an increase in hydration levels and moisture. With versatile properties our Restylane Skinboosters treatment can effectively produce results in both men and women of all skin types, targeting not only the face but the lips, neck, hands and décolletage. This makes it ideal for improving skin structure that has been damaged by acne and photo-damage. With the sole aim of giving our patients more confidence and a higher feeling of self-esteem, Weston Cosmetics undertake this treatment via hydrating microinjections of the gel-like HA producing stunning results in firmness, elasticity and radiance of the skin. This opportunity to refresh and revitalise skin continues to work over several months. As the signs of ageing can appear in a variety of positions, depending on the person, we can tailor our treatment to your requirements. At Weston, we recommend that you opt for a start-up course, usually consisting of three sessions over a period of two to four weeks to get the most out of the skin boosting treatment. Follow up treatments are also recommended every six months to maintain the appearance of your new younger looking skin. If you’re looking to banish the effects of ageing and get your youthful glow back, contact the Weston Cosmetic Clinic team today, we can book you in for a discrete consultation to discuss your needs and requirements to produce the result that you want.
First impressions count and as the first thing someone often looks at when communicating, you always want the characteristics of your face to leave the right mark. Having fuller, plumper lips is often considered to be an indication of health, wellbeing and youth. Being an important part of facial aesthetics, your lips are responsible for giving off a friendly smile, a quick exchange of expression and emotion or even a kiss. With studies showing that wider fuller lips with well defined borders are attractive and endearing in social situations, it seems that plumper lips are becoming increasingly more identifiable with youth and beauty. Whether you were born with thinner lips or are feeling the effects of the natural ageing process which has left you with thinning lips, insecurities and lower confidence, among numerous cosmetic lotions and potions, there is a more permanent solution which can provide the plumper more shaped lip contours which may be everything you need to finally have that perfect smile. So why do our lips thin? The skin on your lips is moisturised by hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar within the human body which is lost over time – this leads to the appearance of lines around the mouth and more commonly a loss of fullness in lips, in turn leading to a loss of volume and definition. the following can be improved, meaning that beautiful more natural looking lips can be yours in less time than a standard manicure can take:
- Thin, flatter lips
- Downturned mouth corners
- Wrinkles and lines surrounding the lip borders
- Ill-defined cupids bow or lip borders
- Decreased lip volume
Many of us have at least one scar upon our body, whether it was the result of a childhood fall or scrape, however some are the result of a skin condition like acne. Unfortunately for most of us these scars upon our skin are permanent and can lead to a reduction in body confidence because they may appear unsightly to the individual or because they are a constant reminder of a moment or time in that person’s life that they may wish to forget. Creams, lotions and potions may be advertised as doing the job and while they may cause the scar to fade, it still remains. Pair that with the natural ageing process which can result in wrinkles, patches and changes in skin texture, and many people’s confidence can be affected. At Weston Cosmetic Clinic, our team of staff offer a discrete and tailored service which can help you with your confidence and to overcome your anxieties about your appearance without the need to undergo cosmetic surgery. Our fractional laser treatment, the leading system on the market today, provides a complete skin rejuvenation remedy. By stimulating collagen renewal, the technology enables your skin’s surface to regenerate quickly forming a brighter and more even skin tone. This will then result in smoother, brighter and newer skin; making scars virtually invisible and skin feel firmer, wrinkles ticker and elasticity improved. A course of treatment can involve between three and five sessions with results evident after the first session, and depending on the level of rejuvenation required, treatment can be carried out every 2 – 6 weeks. Our process involves a full skin cleansing and a topical anaesthetic being applied in some cases before tiny microscopic laser beams are moved over the surface area of the skin for any time between 10 minutes and 40 minutes. By targeting specific (fractional) laser light which penetrates the skin, our nurse practitioners can stimulate collagen renewal leaving the rest to the surrounding areas of skin which will aid your body’s natural recovery process to heal and rejuvenate quickly. Following your treatment, a cooling lotion will then be applied. Throughout the course, our teams of specialists aim to minimise any discomfort or nerves that you may feel ahead of, during, and following treatment which is why we undertake a thorough consultation beforehand to not only clarify your suitability but to ensure you are completely relaxed. If you are looking for a non-invasive, cutting edge solution to beautiful clear skin with long-lasting results please contact our high qualified team of staff today. We welcome all new clients and can offer any guidance or assistance with any questions about the procedures and treatments that we offer.
