Special Offer!!!

What is hyaluronic acid?

It is a natural substance that is found in all living organisms. It is a jelly-like substance that fills the space between collagen and elastin fibres. Over time, through the natural process of aging, or through exposure to pollutants and sunlight, the body’s natural store of hyaluronic acid is degraded and destroyed.

Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to reduce depressions in the skin and improve the skin’s contour.

They can be used in many areas of the face including plumping up the cheeks, nose to mouth lines, smokers’ lines, lines under the mouth. They can also be used as mesotherapy to correct very fine lines and this can be done on the face, the chest area or the back of the hands.

We have a special offer for October – if the treatment is booked for October for mesotherapy (very fine lines on the face, hands or chest area), the treatment will be half price! Normally £300 for two syringes, I am offering 2 x 1ml syringes for just £150!! Please contact me now to book this special offer….

Special offer on Microneedling courses

Microneedling is fast becoming one of the most effective and talked about medical treatments for the skin.

Microneedling, also known as skin needling, dermal needling or collagen induction therapy uses an electric pen with tiny adjustable needles that can penetrate the skin in a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. The depth can be adjusted according to the condition being treated and the skin thickness. This process induces the formation of new collagen and elastin and is used to treat scars, pigmentation problems as well as ageing skin, lax skin, open pores, acne and stretch marks.

For a full face treatment at the Bexley clinic, the charge is normally £100 per microneedling session.

Until the end of October, a course of three sessions can be booked (4-6 weeks apart) for only £230!

Please contact us by email or telephone to book an appointment.

 

Now is the perfect time to start thinking about face peels

Coming out of the summer into the autumn is the perfect time to start thinking about having some face peels.

At the Bexley clinic, we can offer a wide range of peels to suit your skin type and colour and indications.

Salicylic and Jessner’s peels are great for acne prone skin, with Jessner’s also being good for pigmentation problems. Glycolic and the stronger TCA peels are good for fine lines and wrinkles and ageing skin.

We also provide the much talked-about Perfect Peel – this is a combination peel, the strongest peel we do and does not require any skin preparation. You can get the same effect in just one peel achieved in 2-3 of the weaker peels.

If you would like more information about chemical peels, please make an appointment for a free consultation.

Coming soon to The Bexley Clinic….non-surgical facelift

In July I shall be doing training for the non-surgical facelift, also called the 8 point lift. This is a very natural looking, subtle face-lift using dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid (a substance which is naturally in the body).

I have a fantastic model for the procedure, so watch this space for before and after photos, and also a special introductory offer for this procedure in late July……

The General Medical Council have set new guidance rules in order to increase the safety of cosmetic procedures.

Doctors who carry out cosmetic procedures should give patients time to think before agreeing to go ahead, new guidance says.

The General Medical Council has produced the guidance to make surgical and non-surgical procedures, such as facelifts, breast implants, dermal fillers and Botox, safer.

It will now consult doctors and the public about the guidance.

Plastic surgeons said they were already using a two-week cooling-off period.

In 2013, a report by NHS England’s medical director highlighted the risks associated with the cosmetic sector.

This followed safety concerns after nearly 50,000 women in the UK had PIP breast implants fitted. The French implants were made from an unauthorised silicone filler and were found to have double the rupture rate of other implants.

In January, the Royal College of Surgeons published a consultation on proposals to improve standards in cosmetic surgery.

The GMC sets the standards that are expected of all UK doctors who carry out cosmetic procedures. It also tries to help patients understand what to expect from their doctor.

Some of the main points in the new guidance say that doctors should:

  • Be open and honest with patients and not trivialise the risks involved
  • Give patients enough time and information before they decide whether to have a cosmetic procedure, allowing them time to “cool off”
  • Ask patients to tell them how they have been affected by a cosmetic procedure, both physically and psychologically
  • Not target people under 18 through their marketing and seek additional advice from professionals who treat young people
  • Seek their patient’s consent themselves rather than delegate it
  • Not make unjustifiable claims about the results they can achieve and not give away procedures as prizes

Prof Terence Stephenson, the chairman of the General Medical Council, said some patients in this area were vulnerable and needed protecting.

“We are clear that doctors must not pressure patients to make rushed decisions they may end up regretting and they must give them enough information so they can make an informed choice.

Here at the Bexley Clinic for most procedures a consultation is performed first to assess the suitability of the client to the procedure, and to give time for them to consider their decision. Also if it is a prescription only medication that they are receiving, this has to be prescribed and ordered in especially for them. Clients are never pressured into having treatments, and in fact, in some cases, may be refused if they are not deemed suitable.

Please check the credentials of your practitioner

After the story that has been in the news today regarding a bogus nurse treating clients with fillers and botulinum toxin….

Misleading the public by pretending to be a nurse or doctor is a criminal offence. Bogus qualifications can result in serious problems to the unsuspecting public when receiving a cosmetic treatment.
The British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN) say “All BACN members have their credentials checked against the regulatory register, the NMC, GMC or GDC.
BACN nurse, doctor and dentist members are registered and regulated. We do not allow non medically qualified practitioners onto the BACN register. We urge everyone considering a medical cosmetic treatment to check first by going to the BACN website to see if their practitioner is a qualified registered medical professional”

Anna-Marie Lewis is a registered nurse and prescriber and registered with the NMC. She is also a member of the BACN and the RCN.
