Transforming Lives

Obagi and prescription skincare

The anti-ageing market is flooded with products that all promise to provide the elixir of youth, with many creams and serums promising you results unlike any other. However, despite all of these grand claims, many do not ever live up to their labels or USP’s.

This is because these products are nothing more than cosmetics and do not actively work to target the issue at hand. Unlike pharmaceuticals and prescriptions which are medically tailored to give you real results, these products cannot permeate the epidermis to give you the skin you want and deserve.

This is where Obagi skincare is entirely different, as the entire range is prescription strength and contains all of the components to actively encourage your skin to rejuvenate itself. Each product has been stringently and clinically tested, so that what you see today are products that are scientifically able to give you the brighter, more youthful skin that you desire.

OBAGI NU DERM

We all know that sun damage, pollution levels and the body’s hormonal changes can wreak havoc on the health of our skin, which is why it is important to find a treatment that can clinically reduce the impact of these all too common issues.

Obagi nu-derm is able to work against age spots, sun spots and wrinkles on a cellular level and change the way your skins looks. By increasing cell turnover, you will have younger and healthier skin that looks far younger than its years.

OBAGI-C RX SYSTEM

This is a complete skincare programme unlike anything you have used before. It will effectively correct the earliest signs of ageing and the toll that the environment can take on your skin.

Once you’ve begun using the system you will instantly be able to see the results in your youthful skin rejuvenation. The innovative chemistry works to even out your skin tone and enhance the skin’s natural glow.

OBAGI PROFESSIONAL C SERUM

This serum is powerful at working to reduce the impact of ‘free radicals’ that have a damaging impact on the skin. They have the capacity to multiply rapidly when exposed to sun, air pollution or other environmental factors, which reduce the skin’s natural collagen and increase the appearance of age.

OBAGI ELASTIDERM™ EYE SERUM

Forget your average moisturiser, Elastiderm is something entirely different. It contains a highly effective bi-mineral complex that is adept at improving the elasticity of the surrounding eye area. This will visibly reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

OBAGI ELASTIDERM DECOLLETAGE™

This revolutionary system will work wonders to reduce the signs of ageing often found on décolletage.  The innovative technology will diminish signs of hyperpigmentation, the appearance of wrinkles and sun spots on this very delicate area.

OBAGI CLENZIDERM™

This pioneering acne therapy is clinically proven to clear the appearance of acne within two weeks. Acne is a problem which plagues people of all ages, so it is important to use a system that can provide you with the clearer results that you will be able to feel and see in your skin from the very start of your regime.

Botox Treatment

Botulinum toxin is currently one of the most popular botox treatments that is available on the market due to its highly effective technology and impact on your skins appearance. It is naturally a protein that works to stop muscle spasms once it has been directly injected into the muscle. Normally when a muscle spasm occurs it is the result of a chemical message being sent to the muscle from the nerves, which instructs the muscles to contract in the manner in which we are accustomed (tightening). Botulinum toxin is so effective because it works effectively to stop those messages, so there is no wrinkling or contraction that takes place.

The science behind the injections can at first lead people to question the toxin’s safety, although botulinum injections are entirely safe. As it would happen, the toxin is compiled of the same bacterium which create food poisoning, which would mean that a high dose of this substance could be fatal. However this is not the case with botulinum injections, as the dose administered is so small you would be unlikely to react with any harmful side-effects of the toxin as it has been used safely for many years.

Anti-wrinkle injectables such as this one are primarily used for treatment on the face, in problems areas such as around the eyes, for crow’s feet and for forehead wrinkles. The treatment can also be used to lift the eyebrows, reduce orange peel and to perk up the corners of the mouth.

NERFERTITI NECK LIFT

In addition to offering this service, we also perform the Nefertiti neck lift, a brand-new technique which involves situating multiple injections of Botox along the jawline and down the side of the neck. This is a highly effective way to improve the jawline and provide a lifting to the whole area. Taking its name from the ancient Egyptian tradition of a long neck being symbolic of beauty, these treatment is ideal for those who are looking to reinstate their youth.

EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Botulinum toxin can also work against the irritating problem of excessive sweating. This is medically referred to as hyperhidrosis and can occur in areas such as the feet or the armpits. The toxin works by being injected into the sweat gland to block the reaction which would cause this excessive sweating, without impacting other nerve functions.

AFTERCARE

Once you have received your treatment you can continue on with your day much the same, although we would advise against undergoing any strenuous activity in order to allow the injections to absorb properly. Upon departure, we will book you in a for a free post-treatment check-up in approximately two weeks’ time, which will give us an opportunity to evaluate your course of treatment.

Dermal Filler Treatment

Part of nature’s course means that once we begin to age, so does our skin. Which means that it can start to lose its primary constituents, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These are all crucial factors in retaining skins youthful appearance. Collagen supports your skins protein, elastin ensures its suppleness, hyaluronic acid enables us to trap water and ensure shape and volume. As you can see, all of these are vital, so dermal fillers help to make sure that these elements are replaced in the skin.

Dermal fillers are substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin and are becoming more and more popular in the cosmetic industry, they are a highly effective way to halt the appearance of the ageing process and keep yourself looking as young as you feel. They are also non-surgical, which makes them a great option for those who are less keen on surgery.  Due to their non-surgical application, they are far more comfortable than other treatments which require a more invasive course of action.

The dermal fillers can be used for a variety of issues: softening and erasing lines and wrinkles, lip enhancement and definition, nose to mouth lines, mouth corners, cheek enhancement, nose correction, chin enhancement, brow lift, to replace soft-tissue volume loss and even for scar correction. They are a highly flexible and useful option for anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin! Why not get in touch with one of our professionals today and find out how we can help you refresh and revitalise your appearance!

Obagi Blue Skin Peel

The Obagi Blue Skin Peel is the perfect option for anyone who wants to effectively reduce the toll that time (and sun!) has taken on their complexion. This Obagi Blue Skin peel can work against sun damage, fine lines, acne scars, blemishes, and even uneven pigmentation. Once you’ve had your peel, the result will be rejuvenated and young looking skin you can’t wait to show off.

Our services are not limited to just the Obagi skin peel, as we have a wide variety of treatments available for all types of skin. We cannot emphasise enough how important it is to visit a registered clinic so that you can acquire the correct information for your skin type and treatment.

It is important that you attend to a Registered Clinic so that you can be given all the information to make an informed decision about your unique treatment plan. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us and book your free skin consultation so we can help you today!

The time taken for the skin to recover from the Obagi process is often subjective, but some patients decide to take roundabout a week off work whilst the shredding process takes place. We would always suggest that make-up is only applied once the skin is completely healed. It is also highly advisable to avoid direct sunlight and the sun’s strong UV rays as this can lead to scarring and an incomplete recovery. Even once your skin has healed, you must continue to use a strong SPF as part of your continued maintenance and recovery programme.

Obagi Blue Radiance

The latest revolutionary treatment in the Obagi medical range is the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance. Compiled of a unique blend of acids which are designed to enable a non-irritating but effective salicylic acid-based facial chemical peel. The outcome of the innovative Obagi treatment will render the skin brighter tighter and far more youthful than ever before – even after just one treatment!

Salicylic acid–based peels are well known for their ability to help with a wide-range of skin issues, including but not limited to photo damage, acne scarring, melasma and improved texture and tone. The Blue Peel Radiance is an effective exfoliant of the upper epidermis (which is the most damaged layer of all). This treatment can also be beneficial for those with the skin type of 4-6 pigmentation and is suitable for targeting age affected areas of the face.

In order to make the most out of this treatment, we advise that you use the Obagi pre-treatment kit for at least 2-4 weeks before your procedure for lighter skin and 4-6 weeks for darker skin. This kit is made up of easy to use at home products that you will be able to effortlessly incorporate into your existing routine. It is fundamental that all patients wear a suitable SPF30 daily before, during and after their treatment.

During your Obagi consultation your practitioner will carry out a detailed skin analysis which will also involve a full run down of your medical history to ensure your aptitude for the treatment. You will also receive a bespoke home care system that will make sure you are having the right treatment for you, which can also include a patch test – to avoid the risk of any allergic reactions.

The Obagi Blue Radiance peel works effectively once applied to clean and dry skin – the is allowed to dry completely. As no one person’s skin is the same, some patients may find that in order to obtain optimum results, they may need a second application of the treatment. Once applied, it is left on for 5-10 minutes (sensitivity depending), then removed with Obagi cleanser and covered with SPF.

The treatment is not intensely painful as its main side effect can be a mild heat sensation which is easily reduced with the use of a fan. Your practitioner will be able to determine the number of treatments that you require, they are usually staggered as a series of 4-6 treatments scheduled 2-4 weeks apart, approx. 2 times per year.

Facial Sculpturing

SCULPTRA™

The Sculptra Facial Treatment – The Liquid Facelift

Often called the “Liquid Facelift” or “SCULPTRA™”, this procedure is a wonderful solution to the ageing process. Using cosmetic science that was approved by the F.D.A in 2004 for lipoatrophy, SCULPTRA has recently been permitted for cosmetic use. It now actively improves faces and providing visible results after an average of 3-5 treatment sessions 6 to 8 weeks apart depending on which area of the face is treated.

The Sculptra Facial Treatment is compiled of poly L lactic acid, which over time is metabolised naturally by your body’s own processes. The way that this particular polymer works is but activating natural sites of collagen at the sites of injection.

The Sculptra Facial Treatment can be used for a whole host issues that commonly cause people problems. These include but are not limited to the following:

  • Volume loss
  • Acne scarring
  • Enhance and redefine cheeks
  • Fill the concavity of the temples
  • Correction of the tear trough, dark circles & wrinkly skin of the lower eyelids (without placing the product close to the eye area)
  • Redefine the jaw line & lift jaws
  • Correct nose to mouth lines (without treating the mouth area)
  • Lift the mouth corners

The Sculptra procedure takes 30-45 minutes, although there may be some mild discomfort the solution will be mixed with anaesthetic and numbing cream in order to reduce any pain. The number of injections and treatments you require will be entirely dependent on the individual case. Once completed the Sculptra treatment can last for up for two years with great results. The side effects are similar to other facial injections where there can be a little swelling and bruising as you would expect. There is also a slight chance papules or nodules under the skin which will resolve over a period of time. The pros and cons of Sculptra can be weighed and discussed within the consultation process.

You can expect the liquid facelift to have incredible results for you and your face subtly and effectively. It does so because there are no sudden changes to your facial appearance but instead a gradual improvement to your appearance. The Sculptra solution is for single patient use and will be charged per vial not session.

Cellulite

Sculptra is also highly effective for cellulite reduction and improvement, where it can have brilliant results for these issues. Any dimples or impressions in the skin can be successfully filled by solution.

This flexible, non-surgical approach can provide an incredibly useful spectrum of cosmetic uses. This treatment is targeted not only to improve the smoothness of the skin’s surface, but also to restore the structure of facial features’ original definition.

Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a great surgery free way of getting the nose you have always dreamed of. Instead of surgery, injectable fillers (normally hyaluronic acid ones like Restylane and Juvederm or calcium hydroxyapatite) are able to change the shape of a person’s nose in order to get an ideal bridge. These fillers can also work to fill in areas on the nose, lift its angle or smooth bumpy appearances to give a far more polished outcome.

This surgery cannot alter the size of your nose, instead it can help to work away any flaws and give you a nose you are satisfied with. Despite being one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, people often have misconceptions about the procedure being unsafe, although this is a safe non-invasive alternative that only uses dermal fillers.

If you are looking for a cost effective, yet effective solution for your nose and do not want surgery, then this is the option for you! With no anaesthetic and no prolonged recovery time – why not find out if you are suitable for non-surgical rhinoplasty?

The following types of issues make good candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty; slightly crooked nose, small nose that needs building up, hook shaped noses that would like straightening, a mild to moderate bump on the bridge of the nose, a mild to moderate drooping of nasal tip, a nose that needs refinement after surgical rhinoplasty, noses that would like more height, definition and a nose tip.

The procedure involves a topical anaesthetic being applied to the nose, around 20-30 minutes before the treatment takes place, in order to ensure you are in as much comfort as possible. The dermal filler will then be injected at various intervals across your nose, which the doctor will then massage into place.  You are awake throughout the process and in possession of a mirror to monitor and make decisions about the results.

After your procedure takes place you should not touch or apply make-up to the nose, in order to give it time to set and to heal. Your specific aftercare treatment will be decided on by your doctor and will differ from person to person. The result of non-surgical rhinoplasty can last from 6-12 months, after which treatments can be continued to retain your natural look!

PRP Treatment

The use of your own plasma to rejuvenate your skin has been used in medical practices around the world for well over 30 years. It has been used for a multitude of therapies including cardiac surgery, wounds care, sports medicine, neurosurgery, general surgery, orthopaedics, dentistry and cosmetics.

The result of PRP is skin which looks considerably younger, fresher and can heal much faster, due to the PRP (platelet rich plasma) which is obtained from your blood. Due to its incredible healing powers and potency, the platelets contained in it work quickly and efficiently to repair damage of the skin and stimulate collagen.

Due to PRP’s effectiveness at stimulating new collagen production, PRP can kick-start your cells into rejuvenating and creating wonderful new skin, which makes it a brilliant anti-ageing treatment. There are a variety of ways to administer PRP, and each one is as effective as the next. These include being derma-rolled or mixed with derma fillers, or vitamins, or anti-oxidants. It can also be used on all areas of the body!

The treatment works in a very similar way to a blood test, a small sample of blood is taken from your arm and then placed in a centrifuge. It is here that it is then spun; the plasma is separated and the platelet rich plasma emerges! Once in this superior states it is administered to the problem area via a small sterile needle. Because you are using blood from your own body, there is no risk and the process is 100% natural. The procedure should take no more than 30-45 minutes, although the improvement in the damaged area is visibly improved within 3 weeks. For skin to be fully regenerated via collagen, this can take up to 3 months.

Each course of treatment is different depending on the individual, most people tend to require 1-3 sessions over staggered period of 4-6 weeks. In order to maintain desired results, it is advisable to keep up treatments as and when required.

Vein Removal

Vein removal treatment works to successfully remove thread views that can cause problems for men and women alike, as over 50% of the population will develop vein threads during their lifetime. These veins can often become unsightly for those who suffer from them, which makes vein removal treatment a logical and practical way to deal with the problem. These tiny veins can appear on the nose, cheeks and legs. They can appear both red and purple in colour and are also commonly known as spider veins, broken veins and capillary veins.

These veins can be caused by a variety of factors including weather, steroid creams and hormonal changes. No matter what your causes of vein threads, our treatment can help you rid yourself of them. The medical name for this treatment is Sclerotherapy, which involves an injection of salt solution into the problematic vein.
The small procedure is carried out using a minimally invasive small needle and takes no longer than 30 minutes. The amount of veins that are targeted during one session depends on their volume and dispersion, so your professional with judge this.

Preparation for this procedure will involve doing minimal physical activity prior to the treatment, and perhaps stopping certain medications. Aftercare will be much the same to this but this again will depend on the individual. You will be instructed to wear hosiery that will compress the veins in order to make the treatment the most effective it can be.

Once your treatment has been completed you should avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, or other anti-inflammatory drugs for at least 48 hours. Paracetamol can be used if really needed. There also other things that you should avoid for 48 hours: hot baths, hot compresses, whirlpools or saunas, and direct exposure to sunlight. Patients who have received this treatment have found that 50% to 80% of veins that are targeted vanish after the correct amount of sessions.

Their are side effects, such as itching which can occur 2-3 days after the procedure. Other risks will be explained by your professional.

Nu-Derm System for Normal to Dry Skin

This complete skin care system can be used by people with normal to dry skin, but contains a special formula that is especially effective for those with normal to dry skin and can help revitalise the appearance of dry skin. Nu-Derm is an effective system for reducing the appearance of age, a problem which effects men and women across the country. While there are lots of things you can do to naturally ease the ageing process, Nu-Derm is on hand to make a difference you can really see (and feel!).

This innovative system helps to transform your skin from the inside out and work against the natural ageing process that effects all of us. It does so by actively reducing darks spots that appear as the result of sun damage in order to reveal healthier and fresher looking skin!

Nu-Derm is designed for common skin issues such as sun damage, rough skin, erythema, Sallowness (yellowish complexion) and Hyperpigmentation (discoloration). Excessive time in the sun can be detrimental to your skin, and make you age prematurely. This clinically proven hyperpigmentation system corrects unwanted age spots and significantly lifts the look of your skin’s age.

Whilst risks are always dependent on the individual, the safety and effectiveness of Nu-Derm has not been evaluated beyond 24 weeks, but we would suggest that if there is no improvement after 12 weeks of treatment then the course should be discontinued.

Before and after testimonies from Nu-Derm users show that the effects can be greatly successful (after a 24-week evaluation of the efficacy and tolerability of twice-daily use of the Obagi Nu-Derm Normal to Oily System with 1.0% retinol, N=33).

 “Some women in my office approached me the other day to ask what I was doing to my skin because it looked so smooth and radiant. I was floored! Again, thank you.”

AQUALYX

Aqualyx, first developed in 2009 is often referred to as Moloteses’s solution, named after its inventor Professor Pasquale Motolese. This special formula has been physically modified which means its biological life has been reduced and so has very minimal side effects. It is successfully utilised as a form of body contouring, via injection lipolysis, lipotherapy or intralipotherapy. In-depth research has shown that these injections leads to a wonderfully contoured appearance and are safe.

It works by dissolving fat in traditional ‘problem areas’ that refuse to diminish despite a good diet and exercise. Aqualyx works in a similar way to your body’s natural bile acids, which break-down the food you eat and absorbs the fat in your diet. This treatment is therefore a great way to get rid of the extra fat that refuses to shift, rather than an overall weight loss treatment.

Its ingredients have their origins sourced naturally from a compound found in plants, that have the ability to bind with fat tissues, then dissolve the fat. This treatment is effective for use on certain areas such as: thighs, stomach, chin, knees, gynaecomastia, upper arms and buttocks.

The treatment is suitable for people aged between 18 and 60, the number of treatments that you will need will be determined by the amount of fat that you are carrying. The treatment can involve a local anaesthetic at the discretion of the practitioner to numb the area. Risks are minimal as are side effects, but these will be explained by your medical professional upon further consultation.

The treatment’s results are permanent, if you can continue to maintain a constant weight measurement. Aqualyx manages to ensure that once the freed fatty acids have been processed and removed, they do not reappear. In order to achieve maximum results from your procedure, we advise to follow a healthy diet and keep regular exercise.

Non Surgical Face Lift

Thread lifting

Thread lifting is a non-invasive treatment that can support both sagging tissue and promote deep collagen regeneration, in order to help you and your skin look younger than you could ever have dreamt off!

PDO lift

Polydioxanone, or PDO, is mono-filament (consisting of one synthetic fibre), or poly-filament (consisting of two intertwined fibres) that dissolves naturally into your tissue during a short period of time. It has been popular in medicine for years but has only recently come to the fore as an anti-ageing solution. It works to increase levels of collagen and elastin and has been adopted worldwide as a highly effective treatment to reduce the process of ageing.

It is especially useful when targeting horizontal or vertical wrinkles, V-lifting, drooping cheeks and the sagging area just under the jaw, folds of unsightly skin on the cheeks, wrinkles found on the cheeks, the double chin, lower eyelid bags, the forehead, drooping eyebrows and any soft tissue. It is so effective that it can also be used to great effect on the torso to reduce the signs of obesity and sagging.

Once you have completed the full course of treatment you will have beautifully supple and rejuvenated skin.  It is easily administered, with no prep required before and you will be able to notice the difference in your skin from the moment that you walk out of the door.

The treatment works as PDO speeds up this production of collagen in a process known professionally as neocalagenesis. The stimulation of fibroblasts also results in further synthesis of elastin, which is the protein that determines the elasticity and strength of the skin. Through the use of polydioxanone, it was found that the synthesis of natural hyaluronic acid was also increased, which is a crucial factor in maintaining good skin health. Because of this extra synthesis, the PDO thread is harder, more elastic and moisturised. Hence your skin shall appear far more enhanced and youthful!

The treatment itself is quick and genuinely observed to be painless. Taking no more than 30 to 60 minutes, local anaesthetic is used to further diminish any risk of pain. The clinician or doctor will then decide the best places to insert the threads in order for you to have the best possible outcome from your treatment. Once the anaesthetic is able to take its full effect, the threads move through the relaxed muscle and make their way deeper in to the skin tissue. Eventually the threads will move directly in to the muscles of the face and be able to effectively impact your skin’s appearance.

Though this is rare, side effects can include some minimal discomfort during the procedure and some slight redness or swelling once it has been completed. Despite the fact that you will be able to see results almost as soon as you leave the clinic, it is important to keep in mind that it takes 10 to 14 days before collagen starts to reform. At this point, you’ll really start to see the major effect that this incredible treatment has had on the appearance of your skin – you’ll look and feel much more youthful and confident than ever before and be able to show off your new appearance in all of its glory!

Silhouette – Soft Lift

The silhouette soft lift is revolutionising the way that people think about anti-ageing, this quick and highly efficient process offers a very simple and minimally invasive solution to your ageing problems. Men and women are now able to have their face volumized and reshaped in no less than a 30-minute trip to their medical professional.

Silhouette soft combines to effects in order to have a dual impact on ageing skin, first by lifting and regenerating the skin’s surface. This ground-breaking suture technology works to compress and elevate the skin at the time of its implanting, in combination with a small amount of applied pressure, creates visibly smoother skin.

The soft lift’s regenerative ability will powerfully work in the background, as the Poly L-lactic acid (PLLA) works simultaneously to rejuvenate the skin’s collagen levels and improve elasticity – ensuring that what was once sagging skin that is left bountiful and volumized.

There is no special prep that is required before undergoing the Silhouette soft treatment, making it accessible and easy. Any medications or medical history should be discussed with your professional prior to the treatment beginning.

The 30-Minute Treatment

As stated, this simple and effective treatment takes no less than 30 minutes in a doctor’s practice – meaning you will be out of the door and back to usual in no time! The treatment is tailor made to suit your bespoke needs – you can guarantee that you will be undergoing exactly the right course of treatment for you and your skin.

The process of treatment can be broken down as follows:

  • After a small local anaesthetic, the doctor inserts the suture under the skin to a depth of about five millimetres.
  • No incision is required, as the suture is inserted using a fine needle. It is held in place with resorbable cones oriented in opposite directions (bidirectional).
  • Once the suture has been applied, the doctor performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are cut off. One or more sutures may be applied, depending on the patient and treated area.

Once your treatment has taken place, you may expereince a small amount of bruising (as a result of the applied pressure) which is to be expected. You will be prescribed an antibiotic cream to apply to the entry and exit points of the sutures to encourage a speedy healing process and prevent infection for a period of five days. Cold packs will be administered immediately after the procedure if required (Cold packs should be wrapped to avoid direct contact with skin and insertion point).

Additional advice on post-care will be explained and provided by your doctor, but the following advice is usually given to all patients as a precautionary measure:

  • Take analgesia e.g. paracetamol in case of pain (2-3 days)
  • Refrain from applying make-up for as long as possible (minimum 24 hours)
  • Sleep face up, in an elevated position on pillows (3-5 nights)
  • Wash, shave and dry face gently without rubbing or massaging (5 days)
  • Avoid excessive face and neck movements (2 weeks)
  • Avoid over-exposure to direct sunlight and do not use tanning beds (2 weeks)
  • Avoid sports, in particular high impact sports e.g. running (2 weeks)
  • Do not use saunas or hammams (3 weeks)
  • Avoid dental surgery (3 weeks)
  • Avoid face and neck massages and face and neck aesthetic treatments (4 weeks)

Due to the ease and efficiency of this great treatment – your professional and social life will return to normal almost instantly, where you will be able to enjoy your new and rejuvenated appearance!
