Accent Radiofrequency for Skin Tightening & Firming - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Accent Radiofrequency is a relatively recent technology, for treatment to the face and body areas that are in need of skin tightening and cellulite reduction. For those who are looking for improvement without needles or an incision, then this is the treatment for you.

We use Accent, either as a stand alone treatment or combined with other treatments to enhance results. It's a great way to tone, tighten and smooth your skin, rejuvenating the firmness of the skin and giving it a look of toned youthfulness.

Radiofrequency is an energy that causes heating by using radio waves. It's a non-surgical skin tightening treatment for the face and body, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues. It's the heating that causes both the fat cells to disrupt and skin to tighten. By heating the skin to a certain temperature you will improve collagen formation, increase the blood flow and circulation that will strengthen the tissue and improve the texture. This will address skin laxity and the firmness of the skin.

Accent radiofrequency is excellent for:
  • Skin Tightening
  • Cellulite
  • Stretch Marks
  • Neck Tightening
  • Face Tightening
  • Arm Tightening (aka Bingo Wings)
  • Lines & Wrinkles

At the start of the procedure we lubricate the skin with massage oil and gently heat it until it reaches 42 degrees. The treatment is likened to a ‘hot massage’ usually with minimal or no pain or discomfort. The Accent treatments can take between 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area being treated. An improvement of cellulite and fat reduction can sometimes be seen after the first session but most people will see a significant improvement after several sessions.

To get a permanent result, it's recommended to have a course of six treatments, four weeks apart, but more might be required depending on the extent of the problem. Collagen reduces as we age, but the good news is we can rebuild it, so the more sessions you have the better the result! It's not an exact science, and you probably should aim for six sessions, and then reassess.

Dr Bassi is a fully trained, very experienced specialist cosmetic Doctor, and has performed thousands of face treatments at Selston Cosmetic Clinic. He has over 10 years of experience as a specialist cosmetic practitioner, delivering outstanding results which are specific to you. Accent is proven in its effectiveness in tightening loose skin, promoting healthy collagen production and improving body shape.

Lip Enhancment for Fuller, Youthful Lips - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

If you feel your lips are losing definition and you would like to get them back to the fullness of your youth, we at Selston Cosmetic Clinic can help. Dr. Bassi is an expert at using just enough filler to plump your lips, without overdoing it. By making subtle changes in the lip, we can create fullness, and also correcting the symmetry of the lips. We make it our priority to make your lips look as natural as possible, so when you turn heads, it will be for the right reasons!

As we get older, the collagen breaks down and the lips can lose their definition. The ageing process brings a lot of changes to the face and body; forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, laughter lines, circles under the eyes and thinning lips! These changes occur when we age and start to lose collagen and elastin in our skin, as it diminishes over time.

Lip filler injections can solve these issues and give you youthful looking, plump lips, leading to:
  • A nicer smile with defined edges.
  • Thinning lips will appear fuller.
  • A natural looking result, balancing out the rest of your facial features.
  • Rediscovering your youthful lips.
  • The corners of the mouth will turn upwards.
  • Make-up will be easier to apply.
Our lips start slowly losing volume after the age of 16, which causes the V-shape of our upper lips to flatten, while the corners of our mouths slightly turn down. Lip augmentation can add shape and volume to thinning or ageing lips using dermal fillers, whilst still maintaining a natural look.
It's important, after a lip enhancement to follow the after care instructions to make sure that your results stay looking as good as they can.
  • Use an ice pack to numb the lips to reduce any swelling and tenderness.
  • After the procedure, try not to touch your lips for at least six hours. Any rubbing, peeling or scratching can irritation or scar.
  • Following the procedure, only use cold or tepid water to wash the lips. Do not use scented products or scrub or exfoliate the area.
  • Perspiration can cause further irritation to the lips, so avoid strenuous activities.
  • To lessen the amount of water that makes contact with the lips, apply a thin layer of lip balm to the lips.
Most people who have lip enhancement treatment want to achieve smooth, plump, wrinkle-free and youthful looking lips. Everybody's face structure is different and so is their ideal lip shape and size. One thing we all want to avoid though, is an overdone lip with excessive plumping and a pursed appearance, and the last thing you want, is to end up with a trout pout.

Beautiful lips can enhance your look, transform your face and boost your confidence.

Vaser Lipo and Hi Def on Male Abs Before & After - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

These days, more men are opting for cosmetic procedures to enhance their bodies. It seems that men are now feeling the same sort of pressure that women have felt for years.

For men, especially the younger men, the abdomen is a popular area to treat, as it seems that no matter how many sit-ups, work outs and crunches they do, that illusive six-pack can seem impossible to achieve. Infuriatingly, the abs are one of the hardest areas to lose that last bit of excess fat from and although you might be fit and healthy, it can feel very demoralising to know that even though you have a healthy diet and do regular exercise, some stubborn fat deposits just won't shift.

This man had vaser lipo at Selston Cosmetic Clinic on the chest and abs
Image conscious men who are desperate to get rid of body fat, are turning to vaser liposuction. This isn't a procedure designed to remove large amounts of fat from someone who is vastly overweight, but is most successfully used on those who are in relatively good shape, with an active lifestyle, but needs help to target the most stubborn areas. Whether it's a six-pack with definition of the muscles you're after or maybe you have a little pot belly that you would like to get rid of, then vaser lipo can help you achieve it.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we have men of all ages, having vaser lipo on lots of areas, but a lot seem to be on the abs, chest and flanks. These two men in the photo's came in for vaser lipo, looking for the elusive six-pack look. And what fabulous results!

Vaser lipo before and after
Vaser lipo and vaser hi def, can help get you on the right track, getting your body looking just the way you want it. It's a precise procedure, treating small areas with a great degree of accuracy, which makes it ideal for achieving definition of the tummy muscles. Vaser focuses on precision, and by removing superficial and deep fat, it will enhance visibility of the natural muscle contours. Getting vaser lipo on your abs and stomach region is an ideal way to slim down, tone and achieve muscle definition.

Vaser Lipo has many benefits:

  • The procedure is minimally invasive, there's no damage to surrounding body tissues.
  • Vaser lipo uses local anaesthetic.
  • The risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort is minimal.
  • Less scarring and requires no stitches.
  • Vaser lipo is a walk-in-walk-out procedure with minimal downtime.
  • Vaser stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter skin.
For ideal results of the abs area, you should already have reasonable muscle tone, and exercise regularly. The fat over the abs region can all be removed, although it will be hard to get great results if the abdominal muscles aren't built up underneath. You don’t have to be ultra-fit, you just need a good base to build on.

Vaser lipo on the Tummy Before and After - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

One of the most popular forms of liposuction available is vaser lipo, which targets those stubborn fatty areas that you struggle to shift, like the tummy, love handles, bra fat, outer and inner thighs or even under the chin. There are a specific number of fat cells in the body, so once vaser lipo treatment removes the fat, it won’t come back, although the fat cells that are left inside the body can increase in size, so you need to follow a healthy diet and exercise, to keep up the results.

If you have areas on your body that make you feel self-conscious, then vaser lipo is an effective solution, helping to even out your body proportions or contour and tone a particular area. Often our busy lifestyle means we sacrifice exercise, and this makes it difficult to get the toning we want. Vaser lipo isn't a solution to obesity, it's a solution for problem areas of fatty deposits that just won't budge and places on your body that you want to contour into a more toned shape. There’s no reason the results shouldn’t be permanent if you keep to a healthy lifestyle.

         A week after vaser lipo treatment on her tummy    -     and a few months later, this lady was delighted with the results 

Reasons to choose vaser:
  • It's a walk-in walk-out procedure.
  • We are able to treat more than one area in a single appointment.
  • Local anaesthetic is used.
  • Skin retraction is possible.
  • We offer full aftercare after the procedure.
The vaser lipo treatment has widely grown in popularity for more than a decade. It uses ultrasound energy to break up fat, and its innovative technology respects the veins, nerves, blood vessels and surrounding tissue, leaving them relatively intact. Clients experience a shorter recovery time than with other fat removal procedures, such as traditional liposuction. As well as removing fat, vaser lipo also sculpts the body. You are an ideal candidate for vaser lipo, if you are within 10 - 15% of your target body weight, if you exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and have fat deposits that are resistant to dieting and exercise.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we perform vaser procedures under local anaesthetic. Firstly, we inject tumescent fluid into the treatment area which helps to separate fat from the connective tissue that surrounds the fat cells. Then we make a tiny incision and insert a vaser probe, which emits ultrasound energy to liquefy the fat cells before removing them by small tubes through suction.

We can remove up to 4 litres of fat during vaser lipo, and we can treat more than one area in a single procedure. Results are visible immediately, but improved complete results will become more apparent after 3-6 months, and after six months the collagen will grow and the skin will tighten, leaving you with natural looking and subtle results.

Mole Removal at Selston Cosmetic Clinic - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Some say beauty spots, and some say moles! It's funny that they are only considered beauty spots when they enhance certain features of the face. When they're sat prettily by the eyes, on the cheeks or strategically placed around the mouth, like certain movie stars and singers, then they're applauded. But heaven help us if we get one on the centre of our nose, forehead or chin, because then, instead of being a rather fetching little beauty spot, they are just considered ugly brown moles.

We all strive to have flawless skin, but if you take a close look at the people around you, you will soon notice that most of them have a mole or two somewhere upon their face, which can often lead to embarrassment and loss of confidence. We are all insecure about something, and everyone has imperfections, and most things like teenage spots and blackheads clear up over time but unfortunately moles, unless treated by a doctor, are a bit more permanent.

Moles vary in shape, size, and colour from person to person. They can sometimes be flat, or maybe have a more raised appearance and be either smooth, coarse or hairy. They are either dark brown or black in colour and they might be just one single mole or a cluster. Moles on the face are very common and are mostly harmless.

Mole before and after radio frequency mole removal technology.

Moles that are large and hard to hide can cause distress, other, more prominent moles can restrict movement or become very uncomfortable if they catch on clothing. Most people develop moles on the skin naturally, with age and with exposure to the sun, and most of these moles are harmless. However, if you notice a new mole or think that an existing mole may have changed, then it's important to get a doctor to check it and make sure it's not skin cancer.

People have moles removed for different reasons, either medical or cosmetic. There are many ways to remove unsightly moles from the skin, including  laser, radio frequency, electro cautery, cryotherapy (freezing) or shave excisions, which are all non-invasive methods.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic, radio frequency mole removal technology is our preferred method of mole removal. We use state of the art technology that produces radio waves which instantly vaporises the moles, resulting in much less scarring.

Get instant results!
Negligible scarring!
NO incisions or stitches required!
It is a simple, quick, painless procedure!
Full healing occurs within 4-6 weeks!
It's performed under local anaesthetic!
ONLY one single visit required!

Ways to Keep your Face Looking Younger for Longer - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

You can't stop your face from getting older, and it's hard when you see the noticeable signs of ageing when you look at yourself in the mirror. Whether it's the little wrinkles around your eyes or lips, or maybe age or pigmentation spots, you can soften the effects ageing with non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

Botox treatment for fine lines and wrinkles

Although there are obvious causes of premature ageing, there are also many common things that are less obvious, which over time can take a toll on the skin and add years to your face. While many of these tips might seem like common sense, following them will help your skin stay younger, for longer. It's never too soon to start looking after your skin.

Wear sun cream
Exposure to the sun is the number one reason for skin ageing. Over time it damages the skin, causing wrinkles, loss of elasticity, visible blood vessels, hyperpigmentation and even skin cancer. Even if you aren't sunbathing you should still protect your skin by wearing sun cream every day.
Not doing so can result in:
  • The loss of elasticity in the skin.
  • Translucent, thinner looking skin.
  • Wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Leathery, dryer, rough skin.
  • Liver spots on the face, back of hands, arms, and body.
  • Skin Cancer.
  • Broken veins and capillaries on the face.
Laser treatment can takeaway broken veins on the face

Don't pick your spots!
Given the amount of germs and bacteria that's under the nails and on your hands, it's just not sanitary to touch and pick at your pimples. Picking at them can cause breakouts and even make existing spots worse. You shouldn't be picking at your zits, ingrown hairs, blackheads or anything else on your face. It can have permanent effects and even leave scars.

Anti-ageing skin care.
Cleanse: Gently wash your face both morning and night, but avoid cleansers that have high alcohol content and other drying agents._
Exfoliate: As dead cells accumulate, the complexion becomes dull and uneven, so exfoliate your skin weekly, using a gentle facial scrub which will keep the skin smooth, healthy and fresh.
Moisturise: Apply moisturiser over your face twice a day, not forgetting to treat the neck and the backs of your hands. Dry, ageing skin loses its elasticity, and this is when wrinkles begin to form.

Don't sleep with your make-up on!
It's said that a third of women at least twice a week, go to bed without removing their make-up, admit it, we've all done it! Make-up becomes clogged in the pores, making them look larger and resulting in a decline in the collagen, making the skin less supple. Leaving make-up on through the night results in an overgrowth of bacteria on your face, causing acne and giving the skin an unhealthy look.

Do not share make-up.
Sharing make-up is not a good idea. You risk catching infections when sharing someone else's make-up. Sharing mascara brushes can pass on eye infections, and using second-hand lipstick and chap sticks can spread viruses, like cold sores.

At Selston Cosmetic Clinic we offer non-surgical cosmetic treatment for the face, and with so many years experience we understand the many reasons why people come to us for help. Dr. Bassi knows that the point of good cosmetic procedures isn't to make someone look totally different, but to make subtle changes, making you look fresher, giving you clearer, younger looking skin and leaving you feeling confident and happy with your appearance.

We offer non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as botox, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, lip augmentation and fillers to plump up your lips, laser treatment to remove blemishes, moles and thread veins and derma roller and chemical peels to smooth the surface of your skin. We offer a variety of cosmetic procedures for the face, why not book in for a free consultation to find out more and see how we can help.
