Semi-Permanent Make-Up To Enhance Your Natural Features - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Women want to look their best at all times, and it would be fantastic if they could do it with the least amount of effort. With semi-permanent make-up, it stops you having to apply, reapply and remove make-up every day, and it will always look professionally applied. Just imagine waking up looking fabulous, stepping out of the shower, the pool or the gym, confident that your make-up is still in place.

There are many reasons why people have semi-permanent make-up applied:
Convenience. Some busy women have little time for applying cosmetics every day
Those with sensitive skin or with allergies to conventional make-up
Ageing changes, over plucked eye brows, thinning lips or dull eyes
If they have arthritis or painful shaky hands
Women with vision problems or those who wear glasses or contact lenses
Women who just have sparse hair growth, or have hair loss due to alopecia 
Those with oily skin who tend to shed make-up easily

Semi-permanent cosmetic treatment is when we carefully apply semi-permanent pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. The pigment is :
  • A natural iron oxide.
  • It's hypoallergenic
  • There are no fragrances, emollients or other added ingredients
Lip Liner and Lip Blush:
Lip liner treatment can emphasise, correct or define the lips and it can prevent lipstick bleeding. A colour wash over the lip area can beautifully accentuate your lips, giving an attractive soft and natural look. The lip blush involves working along the lip line, defining the shape before progressing down and into the lip, to contour the pigment into your natural lip colour.

Eyeliner/ Lash Liner:  
Will give you a result that will complement your existing features and will suit your eye colour. The shape gets drawn on before the treatment, so you can see how the finished result will look. Whether it's a thin understated line, a clearer and more heavily defined liner or maybe an optional flick can add a gorgeous finish to this look.

Natural looking, beautifully shaped eyebrows can accentuate the eyes, and frame the face, making it look more attractive. Different techniques can achieve different looks, from powdered brows, to microblading, to HD brows or even just adding a few hair strokes to fill in eyebrow gaps.

The results look very natural, making your features look more defined. Although it varies with every person, the results usually last between 3-5 years and in some cases could be longer. At first, the pigment on the treatment area might look darker than you wanted, but after a few days, the colour will lighten by up to 30%.

There's usually minimal discomfort, we can use topical anaesthetics to greatly reduce any minor discomfort and promote relaxation. Most clients feel absolutely nothing during treatment, except a prickly sensation in the area being treated.

Make Your Face Look Younger With A Botox Brow Lift - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Botox eases the lines and wrinkles on the face, that appear through repetitive facial movements, etching them into the face. The frozen looking face, that some people worry about getting with botox injections, will only happen when too much gets injected. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, Dr Bassi  has performed thousands of injectable treatments and has over 10 years experience as a specialist cosmetic practitioner and he performs careful and technical exact injections, resulting in a fresh and healthy appearance, not a startled and expressionless look.

As you get older, your brow may drop or sag,  but Botox treatments will allow you to lift the brow, 
giving your face a more youthful look and making you look less tired. A chemical brow lift is a botox injection treatment that can raise the skin tissues around the eyes and eyebrows, to raise the natural eyebrow arch. This treatment can also make the eyes look wider, resulting in a more youthful look. We recommend the brow lifts to those with mild to moderate brow heaviness, due to low-hanging eyebrows or naturally drooping eyelids.

The ‘botox brow lift’, or chemical lift, is a popular procedure for those who have a mild to moderate heaviness in the brow area and don’t want to undergo invasive surgery. We can perform the brow lift on all skin types, and those who have naturally drooping eyelids and low-hanging eyebrows may find it particularly effective. Injecting botox into the brow will literally lift the skin tissues above and around the eyebrows, resulting in the natural eyebrow arch raising a few millimetres higher.

Botox is a non-surgical way to improve the look of your face, it has many benefits:
  • When compared to other procedures, botox requires no downtime.
  • It's a relatively affordable cosmetic procedure.
  • When combined with fillers, it can give your whole face a more youthful look.
  • Botox is clinically proven to be safe and effective
  • You might be less prone to future wrinkles because your muscles can actually start gravitating toward a more relaxed state after receiving botox injections.
  • Botox may help treat chronic migraines, excessive underarm sweating and other conditions.
    It's designed to yield attractive, natural and understated results. Your face will look like your face, only better. 
Botox used in tandem with other injectables can fully rejuvenate the face, leading to reduced wrinkles, plump lips and volumised cheeks, which all work together to soften the effects of age.

Laser Treatment For Spider and Thread Veins - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

As we get older, both our skin and our veins become weakened, and this can cause spider veins to appear more visible on ageing or mature skin. Tiny blood vessels which become dilated and appear close to the surface of the skin, are known as broken, thread or spider veins. These veins are fine purple or red wiggly lines.

Spider veins are more likely to appear on women than on men and they are normally found on the legs but can also appear on the face, breasts and arms. People, especially women, who have spider veins on the face and legs can find them embarrassing or unsightly, and this can really affect their confidence. However, you don't need to suffer, as there are treatments available that will quickly and safely eliminate these unsightly thread veins to give your skin a clearer, more attractive appearance.

Spider veins are like varicose veins, but smaller and nearer to the surface of the skin and they can resemble tree branches or spider webs. They might cover a large, or small area. While we perform surgery on the larger varicose veins, laser treatment can help with the smaller veins.

Laser treatment benefits include:
  • Quickly and safely eradicating the thread veins on the legs
  • Veins will only recur in a small percentage of cases
  • Treatment can help to restore your confidence
  • You are likely to see ongoing improvements after each treatment

There's usually no obvious cause for getting thread veins, they tend to develop;
  • As we get older and the skin and blood vessels become less elastic.
  • It's thought hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and the menopause provoke their development.
  • You can also inherit a family tendency to the problem.
  • The elements - too much sunbathing, exposure to wind or extreme temperatures.
  • Medical issues - corticosteroid medicines and radiotherapy.
  • Jobs involving prolonged standing may aggravate the condition, but doesn't actually cause it.
  • Veins may also be affected by smoking and alcohol. 
Although you may not like the look of them, thread veins aren't dangerous, but they tend to become larger and increase in number over time. The safest, most effective treatment for spider veins is laser treatment. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic , we apply a laser to the skin directly above the spider veins. The energy from the laser is preferentially absorbed by coloured tissues, such as spider veins and the energy causes the spider veins to heat up and collapse. After treatment, the body slowly re-absorbs the veins.

Rejuvenate Your Face With A Vampire Facelift - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) also known as the Vampire Facelift, is a cosmetic treatment that's been used for about 8 years with fabulous results. It's a scientific discovery that recruits your body's natural agents, to rejuvenate your face and make you look years younger.

If you don't feel the need to undergo an invasive surgical procedure to improve the look of your skin, then the Vampire Facelift might be the solution you are looking for. When you notice your skin has become less smooth due to ageing, or your skin is looking tired, it might be time to consider a solution. The PRP treatment can give your skin back its youthful texture, glow and rosy colour.

The Vampire Facelift is an innovative treatment that uses the ingredients of your blood to rejuvenate tired, ageing skin along with fine lines and wrinkles. The unique ingredients of your blood are your platelets, and they're converted to platelet rich plasma by the Vampire Facelift technique.

Areas suitable for PRP treatment
For the Vampire Facelift treatment, we take 10 to 20 ml of blood, the same as a standard blood test, and this is then spun to separate blood platelets from the rest of the blood. Once these platelets have been withdrawn from the blood sample, they get injected carefully into the face and this stimulates new collagen formation, and this will result in rejuvenating your skin.

PRP is unique as there is :
  • No risk of allergy or rejection. We are using your own blood.
  • No animal materials involved.
  • Minimal discomfort.
  • Quick procedure, from start to finish of treatment is around one hour.
They injections are relatively painless, and we use a topical anaesthetic. We use very fine needles to inject small amounts of PRP into your skin, and from our experience, 3 treatments, spread 4 weeks apart are enough. The results can last up to 18 months and we recommend a touch up treatment around this time. The beauty of this treatment is that you are using your own blood, so it's completely non-toxic and hypoallergenic.

PRP is a stand alone or add-on treatment to the many cosmetic treatments we already offer at Selston Cosmetic Clinic. It gives good results for treatment of crepiness and wrinkling of the upper and lower eyelids.

It's also an ideal for enhancing the skin texture of the :
  • Eye area
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Hands
  • Acne scarring
At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, Vampire Facelift clients are reporting back subtle improvements in wrinkle reduction, better skin texture and appearance, and their open pores are reducing dramatically.

Vaser Lipo to Transform Your Inner & Outer Thighs - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Some women can feel uncomfortable about displaying their legs in public, but the legs are often key to a shapely figure. The legs can appear relatively slim throughout, but the inner and outer thighs might be out of proportion to the rest of the body. Women tend to store fat on their thighs, making it hard to achieve a toned, smooth silhouette, and stubborn fat deposits sitting on the body can make any weight loss difficult to achieve, even when you are actively exercising.

A lot of us have lumps and bumps on our outer thighs and this can really knock our confidence when we want to wear smooth, tight-fitting clothes that show off the figure. Excess fat on the inner thighs can also cause painful rubbing and chaffing.

Vaser lipo on the outer and inner thighs and the knees
The thighs are a notorious area of the body that are prone to storing excess fat and this can make the thighs look out of proportion with the rest of the legs. This can make it tricky when trying to find a pair of trousers that will comfortably fit both the upper, and lower half of the legs. With vaser lipo, stubborn localised pockets of fat can successfully be removed, improving the overall shape and contours of your thighs. Vaser treatment can help create a natural silhouette that’s suits the whole body and gives results that are dimple-free and symmetrical.

  • Once we remove the fat, it won't return
  • Vaser lipo is a walk-in, walk-out procedure
  • Minimal downtime and minimal time needed off work
  • A specialised technique designed to minimise any discomfort and bruising
  • We use local anaesthetic
  • Transform your legs in one procedure
  • Good skin retraction is possible
Vaser lipo on the inner thighs and knees
Vaser lipo uses amplified, concentrated waves of ultrasound to send vibrations through the fat targeted area. We make tiny incisions into the treatment area, usually in the skins natural creases and they are usually unnoticeable afterwards. After an anaesthetic solution is injected, the vaser probe gets inserted into the treatment area and ultrasound energy targets the fat cells just under the top layer of skin. This liquefies the fat cells, gently breaking them up, before they are suctioned out with a cannula.

With vaser lipo treatment it’s possible to shape your legs however you like. The recovery times are short, and the pain during the procedure is minimal as it’s performed in a safe, non-invasive way, that leaves everything but the fat cells untouched, and undamaged.

Erase Fine Lines & Wrinkles With Botox - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Botox injections have been safely used for some years now, and it's become one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments on the market, due to its safety and effectiveness. We must always remember that despite Botox's popularity and its increasing use, the treatment is still a medical procedure, and only a fully trained and highly experienced cosmetic doctor or nurse practitioner should carry out this treatment.
  • Always check out the practitioners qualifications.
  • Avoid gimmicks, such as: two for the price of one or introduce a friend and get a discount.
  • Always make sure the place you go to have treatment is clean. 
  • The cheapest priced treatment isn't always the best.
  • Check out their before and after photos and see what results they achieve.

Dr Bassi is highly trained in botox techniques and at your free consultation at Selston Cosmetic Clinic, he will discuss what requirements you have, and what your expectations are. Dr Bassi has performed thousands of botox treatments and our client base is increasing year upon year, mainly by word of mouth client recommendations.

We inject botox into specific muscles and this relaxes the muscles and prevents contraction. The repeated contractions of the muscles are what cause the skin to crease,making fine lines appear. We administer botox with fine needles, making the procedure quite painless. Afterwards you might get slight swelling and redness and with any procedure there's the risk of bruising, but this is minimal and can easily be covered by make up.

Botox, when done properly, should leave your face looking relaxed and refreshed, with no-one being able to tell you’ve had wrinkle reduction treatment. By choosing the right cosmetic doctor to achieve your aim, your appearance will look much improved, but still remain looking completely natural.

Botox can also  be used to:
  • Reduce over active frown / expression lines.
  • Reduce crows feet/ lines and wrinkles
  • Correcting lines from repeated facial expression and worry lines
  • Give you an eye lift
  • Correct eyebrows that look uneven
  • Tighten the jaw line
  • Correct the down-ward-turning corners around each side of the lips
  • Treat migraines
  • Treat hyperhidrosis (armpit sweating)
Continuity is always a good idea, so if you are having botox, fillers or any treatment where you go back for top up's and more treatments, it's wise to use the same practitioner who knows what you want, what you are hoping to achieve and who knows your face. At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, Dr Bassi has attended many conferences and courses, and his skills are always being updated.

Enhance Your Lips With Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

The lip clinic at Selston, Nottinghamshire, specialises in both lip enhancement and augmentation. Over recent years, fuller lips have become very popular, and here at Selston we are very aware that some clients might be wary of ending up with a 'trout pout', but we can assure you we would never let this happen at our clinic.

Lots of people are unhappy with their lips. They might think their lips aren't symmetrical, or maybe they want fuller lips to enhance their appearance. Our cosmetic doctor, Dr Bassi, has performed many lip fillers and his treatment ethos is to produce elegant looking, luscious lips, which should only get you compliments and admiration.

Lip enhancement generally involves outlining the lip border and lip augmentation involves making the body of the lips fuller. A complete lip filler process at Selston Cosmetic Clinic's lip clinic, will involve using both of these processes, to expertly place the fillers in other areas to balance the lips out and give natural looking results.

Lip filler treatments provide following functions:
  • Restores lost volume and shape.
  • Give more symmetry to the facial features.
  • Boost confidence in regard to their appearance.
Before any treatment you will need to talk to a cosmetic doctor. During your consultation you must make the doctor aware of your preferences and let them know the result you want to achieve with this treatment. You can always ask to see before and after photo's of their previous work on clients who have had lip augmentation.

We attempt to make the procedure as painless as possible and the fillers we use contain a local anaesthetic. We apply a topical anaesthetic 20 minutes before the procedure, and this numbs your lips, and this will make your treatment more comfortable.

Lips can start out thin and barely noticeable, and change into a sensual fuller look after just one visit to the cosmetic clinic. Lip fillers can smooth out fine lines around the mouth, define the edges and enhance and balance your facial features, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Dermal fillers can enhance the overall volume of the lips and by inserting the fillers around the lip edge, will help to improve the contour and shaping of the lips. We use hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers at Selston Cosmetic Clinic, which is a substance that's non animal based and is naturally found in the body. They are extremely safe and give natural results, along with longevity.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic's lip clinic we've had experience in enhancing thousands of pairs of lips. Selston is the place to head to if you want defined, elegant luscious lips, done by an experienced cosmetic doctor.
