How to Achieve Natural Results with Dermal Fillers

Long gone are the days when ‘getting work done’ was synonymous with surgery, or extreme transformations that compromised the face’s natural contours, structure, and beauty.

The vast majority of us do not want our cosmetic treatments to speak for themselves. We want gentle yet tangible results. We also want those results to work with our natural beauty, maintain our facial structure, and give off an air of good health, youthfulness, and vitality that age and stress may have begun to undermine.

Fortunately, revolutionary developments in the world of non-surgical cosmetic procedures are designed with this nuance in mind; they seek to revive lost collagen and structure, and to rejuvenate the face in a way that screams “long weekend in St Tropez”, rather than “overnight stay and six weeks’ recovery”.

With that in mind, achieving the best results still relies on you choosing an excellent practitioner who understands the subtleties of facial anatomy, and holds the wealth of experience necessary to realise the full benefit dermal fillers can offer.

Dr Davina Wilson and the team have considerable experience in offering patients the best outcome from their procedures. Here are a few of the ways dermal fillers can be used to achieve natural results.

anti Wrinkle Injections

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are an incredibly popular injectable solution of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally within the body – and particularly within the skin’s collagen stores, where it can create a firmness, elasticity, and a smoother texture.

Unfortunately, as we age, this collagen is gradually lost, which is why we all begin to experience visible changes in our faces, from fine lines and wrinkles to sagging, and a more hollow, undefined appearance. This process begins from the age of around twenty-five, but it tends to become more obvious in our thirties.

By introducing this hyaluronic acid back into targeted areas within the face through a series of non-invasive injections, we can offer patients significant, natural results that reverse the signs of ageing, and add plumper, more youthful look back into the face.

Dermal fillers can be used to improve lost depth around the delicate eye area (tear troughs), to smooth out wrinkles that appear along the nose to mouth area (nasolabial folds), or restore cheek contouring. They can also be used to create greater definition around the chin, jawline, and temples, and add more fullness back into the lips.

They can also be used as an effective alternative to the surgical rhinoplasty, and offer a non-invasive option for anyone looking to ‘smooth out’ any bumps in the bridge of their nose.

Dermal fillers typically last for up to 18 months, but returning for yearly ‘top-up’ treatments often encourages the body to begin to produce more of its own natural collagen over time.

Remember that Less is More

It is a common misconception among new patients and inexperienced practitioners alike that achieving obvious results requires a large amount of filler.

In reality, remarkable results can be achieved with very little filler, sometimes only 1-2 ml. When treating lips at the clinic, we use 1ml, which is 1/5th of a teaspoon. However, this amount can give lips a noticeably plumper more contoured look. We always avoid the trout pout or sausage over-filled look.

Capturing your natural beauty does not need to rely on large quantities of filler – or any other cosmetic treatment or surgery, for that matter. The right approach is much more nuanced and requires a great deal more finesse than using as much filler as possible in problematic areas.

Consider Your Entire Face – Not Just the Specific Area That Bothers You

We are all guilty of occasionally standing a little too close to the mirror, and scrutinising every part of our faces individually – looking for those imperfections that, under bright lighting and intense magnification, make us unhappy.

Other people, however, do not look at us in the same way. They see the entirety of our face, from its shape and structure to the natural flow of our features.

As such, focussing your attention on improving one area of your face is not the way to achieving the most natural results. Those experienced in performing these procedures have the right eye for understanding facial anatomy, and how best to work with your face as a whole, rather than as a collection of separate pieces.

An example of taking a more holistic approach to assessing the face is when we focus on the nose to mouth lines ( nasolabial folds). These folds develop as soft tissue and structures from around the mid-face area and cheeks have dropped down. If the practitioner only focuses on injecting filler in the grooves, the actual cause root of the problem (the sagging from above) has not been treated, which can lead to short-lasting or unnatural results. The experienced practitioner knows the most important areas in the face to treat to support other facial structures and create a lift.

Any procedure needs to be approached from a broader perspective – one that understands both the science and the artistry necessary for maintaining balance, and ensuring that you feel comfortable with the results.

Remember that Not All Fillers are Created Equal…

Owing to the incredible popularity of filler injections, there is a huge variety of products on the market – many of which will vary drastically in price, and the nature and quality of the ingredients used. While many will be perfectly safe and capable of producing good results, others may not have been created under strict conditions for quality control and hygiene and could cause significant problems for you if they are injected into your face.

Any good practice will utilise only the highest quality products on the market. We source our fillers from leading companies, including Luminera, Merz and Galderma. These products are extensively tested, 100% vegan, and subject to stringent quality control to ensure that every patient is kept safe and that their investment into their appearance is not wasted.

Respected clinics will always value the safety of their patients, and will invest in high-quality fillers to ensure that the results live up to your expectations.

…And neither are practitioners

Dermal fillers are a fantastic option for anyone unhappy with a lack of volume, elasticity, firmness or definition in their face. Still, they require a great deal of skill and understanding from your practitioner, and this proficiency is not something that you will find everywhere.

Achieving natural results is dependent on you putting your trust into the hands of practitioners who understand the ins and outs of the procedure itself, and who hold an impeccable track record of performing this treatment on patients who were pleased with the results. Dr. Wilson also trains other doctors in advanced aesthetics as she has 11 years of injecting experience.

Perform your due diligence by checking out honest client reviews, before and after photographs, and taking a look at the certifications that the practice holds. If they have managed to build up a loyal clientele, then this is an excellent sign that they are consistently meeting the high expectations of their customers, and that they are trusted and respected within the community.

 

Book a Consultation Ahead of Your Appointment

Dr Davina Wilson

Any worthwhile clinic will ensure that you are going into the process with your eyes open and that you understand what you should expect to achieve from the procedure. There, you will be able to discuss any concerns or questions and explain to your practitioner what results you would like to see.

Similarly, they will be able to take a good look at your facial anatomy, listen to your thoughts, and explain to you what they believe they will be able to achieve during your first procedure, and never over-sell.

Rushing into any cosmetic procedure – whether it is dermal fillers or a four-hour surgery – is never advisable, and your doctor will not want to proceed with the treatment before they are confident that you are realistic about the results and ready for the procedure itself.

If your practitioner is willing to rush straight into performing the treatment, then they will have skipped many important steps. In a way, this is akin to going into the procedure blind; they may inject too much, or focus too closely on one specific area without considering your entire face. We always carry out a free consultation before a treatment.  You are encouraged to take time, if you need, before booking in for the procedure knowing all your options.

As with any procedure, the value of the results lies in the preparation as much as it does the treatment itself. Natural results are achieved through a certain amount of finesse, and a level of care which is lost when the practitioner rushes through the treatment.

PRETTY IN PROFHILO

The Blushing bride

Part Three of our Wedding Season to “look fabulous,” features a treatment that, well…frankly, has caught the beauty industry by storm!

Profhilo.

This amazing Hydraulic Acid injectable is one of the best-reviewed beauty treatments out there and, after having undergone the procedure, Look Lovely London’s Mystery Client knows exactly why. 

Profhilo is an all-around oomph for the skin.

Not just because it lasts for a solid amount of time (hello 6-month glow!) but the treatment also has that special knack to rejuvenate skin at any age, giving it that air-brushed and “snap back” quality. 

Perfect for the bride and her multiple generations of family and friends, right?   

Profhilo facial injections

Now, admittedly, my first thoughts on hearing about Profhilo was…

“Another needle-based procedure?” 

I already undergo injections for dermal fillers, as well as Botox in London, and, so, being a veteran of Needleville I found myself wondering why I would need a third product inserted into my visage, moreover, what was so special about this one?

Googling Profhilo, however, the reviews spoke for themselves.

People seemed to consistently be fawning over the procedure….

Okay, interesting, I thought. 

I figured if that many clients were raving about it, especially considering it’s the, ahem, often quite brutally opinionated internet out there, there must be something to Profhilo. 

All right then, needle me up again!

(Above translates into “I booked an appointment.”)  

Facial injections at Look Lovely London

After sipping my delicious tea in the Look Lovely London reception, I applied numbing cream and wandered up the stairs to Dr Wilson’s office, where I leisurely lay down on her table.

Dr Wilson proceeded to give me a series of small sting-like injections on each side of the face…

10 jabs in total.

The injections felt different to Botox- they were slightly fiery for a few seconds like I’d been stung by a tiny bug.

But the heated sensation quickly subsided.  

After my first session, Dr Wilson informed me I might see some improvement in skin texture after the first session but the real change would be noticeable after my second treatment, which I swiftly booked for 4 weeks ahead.

That day, I left the Look Lovely London clinic with tiny hives at the injection sites, which went away after three hours.

Though I didn’t feel much skin tightening at first my skin did feel quite hydrated already!

In fact that my untreated neck started to look duller in contrast to my nice, dewy face. 

 By the way, necks can also be treated with Profhilo!  

It’s a great place to have it done because with all the wonderful treatments done to our face, it starts to look slightly out of joint if what’s holding it up is ageing faster. 

Profhilo treatments in London

A month later, the second set of injections felt similar to the first round BUT this time the effects were much more dramatic!

My skin was not only more hydrated but felt tighter. Based on previous pictures, I even spied slight creases and droops on my face were not as visible and my cheeks even looked somewhat elevated, though they had not undergone a filler procedure for a while. 

What’s more, the hydrating effects of Profhilo were such that I found myself changing my skincare and make-up products.

I suddenly needed less expensive creams and serums and my cakey, heavy foundation got put aside to make way for much lighter products- a simple tinted moisturiser in fact. 

I’m still using it.

So what would I summarise Profhilo as? 

Well, it’s basically like having a strong moisturiser inserted under your skin, which is particularly apt for the walking-down-the-aisle season and summertime celebrations.

This half-a-year-lasting procedure basically gives that dewy, “I’m rested, relaxed and been on an extremely rejuvenating vacation” look…or, more cheekily…a constant, wonderful post-sex glow!

Hey, that’s something to aim for in the upcoming season of love. 

And that’s all regarding Profhilo this time around.

Until next post, with the exploration of another fab procedure.

Yours truly,

Look Lovely London’s Mystery Client.

My Best Friend’s Botox

Botox injections for brides

Wedding Season: Part Two.

And we’re off into the Look Lovely London sequel.

From last week’s A-list facial to this week’s spotlight treatment-

The long heralded and widely renowned Botox!

By now you’ve probably read plenty about anti-wrinkle injections on the web and been inundated with info, to the point where you might just be wondering what on earth to think or where to even start. 

Part of being slightly and justifiably daunted is Botox’s amazing knack for being used on multiple areas on the face and neck and, frankly, other parts of the body (hello armpits to stop sweat!). 

Which area to pick then? 

Decisions, decisions. 

First off, know that Look Lovely London’s Dr Wilson is happy to answer any questions regarding what procedure is optimal to fit your concern on the very day of your treatment. 

So you should always feel safe that you’re getting what’s best for you.

That said, for the purpose of playing favourites, as I love to do, especially in the season of romantic nuptials and gorgeous across-the-room gazes, my personal preference is, ta-dah

Botox for the eyes

Audrey Hepburn quote
“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,  because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” 
(Audrey Hepburn)

Take it from Audrey, guys and girls, eyes are the windows to the soul. 

So ensuring they look as awake and refreshed as possible for that moment when you look into your beloved’s oculars and say the words “I do” is sure to fulfil your wildest dream on that special day. 

Additionally, a bigger, smoother eye area preps you for wedding pictures, where we tend to squint and crease more frequently during summertime…

Especially when we’re posing tenfold with family, friends and drunken Uncle Mike.  

All right, so admittedly, when I went in to see Dr Wilson to get my eyes treated, I also had a few lines on the top of my forehead that were majorly bugging me.

But thanks to Dr Wilson’s quick and efficient procedure, along with the crow’s feet, those creases were smoothed out, so I looked five years younger days after my Look Lovely London visit.

Oh, and if you’re worried about pain, fear not readers, I used to hate needles (ah, those were the days) but each area required just a handful of quick pricks…if even that. 

You also have the option of applying their fab numbing cream, which means feeling anything isn’t much of an issue. 

Over a week later my eyes appeared wider and more doe-like. The brow lift I added to the treatment also boosted the general opening effect of my mid-face.

The entire outcome was fully noticeable after two weeks and I looked dramatically rejuvenated and more youthful in my Instagram selfies….always an added bonus.

Starry eyes extraordinaire!

So there we have it.

Whether you’re a beautiful bride or an honorary guest at the reception to follow, charm your beloved or that handsome stranger across the tent not just with your Beyonce moves on the dance floor, but with your even more impressive seductive, Botox-crafted wide-eyed look. 

Just another solution to being the fairest of them all this summer!  

And that’s all from your canny insider this time round, my sweets…

Have a fabulous May.

Yours truly,

Look Lovely London’s Mystery Client

What Types of dermal fillers are there?

There are a number of different fillers which are made from a variety of materials and all have different effects, some temporary and others permanent.  It is important that you do your research so you can learn what is available and which types of dermal fillers might be best for you. However we are always on hand if you have any questions about our treatments and procedures and are happy to provide advice on which option might be the right one for you, so you get the results you’ve always wanted.

At Look Lovely London we use Restylane dermal fillers and skin boosters which are designed to help restore, enhance and refresh your skin. Restylane is made up of a sugar molecule called hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in the skin, so it is one of the safest options for reversing the signs of ageing and rejuvenating your skin.

If you already have a favourite type of dermal filler you wish to use instead, Dr Wilson has been trained in all popular brands of dermal fillers and is able to administer most brands on request. We also offer a range of other facial injection treatments if you prefer something different.

How long do results last?

Results are noticeable straight away, however over the week the filler will settle and the final result will be seen after 10 days.

Results typically last between 6-12 months, depending on the area treated.

What areas can dermal fillers be used for?

Dermal fillers can be used to target the following areas:

  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Nose to mouth lines (Nasolabial)
  • Lips

There is currently insufficient scientific research to suggest whether it is safe or not to use dermal fillers while pregnant. In this case, we would suggest that you wait until you are no longer pregnant and have finished breastfeeding before using dermal fillers.

What are the side effects?

The main side effects of dermal fillers are slight swelling and redness which can occur straight after the procedure. This normally disappears after ten minutes. Some bruising can also occur if the filler is being administered into the lip area, as this is more vascular than other parts of the face. However we provide icepacks straight after treatment to minimise bruising.

At Look Lovely London, we strongly advise that you spend the time to find a reputable practitioner who is properly qualified. This is important as it will help put your mind at ease, knowing you are in safe hands.

Learn How You Can Get Luscious Lips In Just 30 Minutes With This One Secret Trick

Whether your lips are naturally thin, or have lost their fullness over time as a result of ageing, you may have considered having lip fillers. Not everyone is born with luscious lips and even those who are experience a reduction in the plumpness of their pout over time.

The older you get, the less collagen you produce, which is why people often notice a change in the shape and size of their lips as they age. However it’s not only ageing that can have an effect; the sun’s ultraviolet rays can also cause collagen to break down and lips to thin.

If you want to keep your naturally full lips, or wish you could enhance the ones you were born with, you might want to consider dermal fillers. We understand that with any procedure there is always a concern with potential side effects, which is why we have put together this simple guide to ensure you have all the information you need before you decide if dermal fillers are right for you.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are soft tissue filler which can be injected into the skin to give a smoother, fuller appearance. Look Lovely London uses Restylane to enhance the lip area and provide border definition in order to achieve either a glamorous or natural look, whichever you prefer.

The main component of the fillers we use is hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring substance found in all living organisms. Hyaluronic acid is a natural moisture-binding ingredient that keeps skin plump and hydrated.

How long do lip fillers last?

The length of time dermal fillers last for can vary from patient to patient, however fillers which have been applied to the lip area using one of the brands supplied by us should last between 6-12 months.

How much do lip fillers cost?

Look lovely London is currently offering first time customers a special price of £250 for a 1 ml syringe of dermal filler. This amount of filler is usually adequate for treatment.

Are there any side effects from dermal fillers?

Virtually anyone can have lip fillers if they are looking to reduce lines and wrinkles or create more defined, fuller lips, and side effects are very minimal. As the main component within the fillers we use is a naturally occurring substance, the risk of side effects is much smaller.

The most common reaction to fillers is swelling, which usually disappears within 4-5 days. As the lip area is more vascular than other parts of the face, bruising can often be slightly more noticeable, however an icepack will be provided straight away after the procedure to minimise any bruising and swelling.

If you think lip fillers might be for you, or would like further information on any of our treatments, give us a call on 0203 199 8245 and start your journey to a new, more confident you!

Discover How You Can Banish Ageing Lips Once & For All!

No matter how old we are, there’s always something we would change about our appearance. Whether it’s losing weight, toning up, changing our hair or getting our nails done, looking after our appearance is key to our self-confidence.

However, one of the main causes of low self-esteem amongst men and women of a certain age is that with all the best intentions, it can feel impossible to stop the signs of ageing.

One of the most common areas on the face which can start to change as a person ages is the lip area. Fine lines can appear around the mouth, and lips themselves can start to thin over time.

Ageing around the lip area is very common and something which many of us would want to improve given half the chance.

The great news is that you can instantly reduce the signs of ageing around the lip area, simply by undergoing a few lip-plumping injections, also known as lip fillers.

Lip fillers are very commonplace these days, with many celebrities opting to plump up their lips to maintain a glamorous and youthful appearance. And since the treatment isn’t too expensive, you don’t have to be a celebrity to enjoy having a younger looking pout.

We’ve prepared this short guide on dermal fillers for the lip area and explained a little more about the procedure, how much it costs and what to expect after the treatment.

What is dermal filler and how does it work?

Dermal fillers work to simply replace the collagen around the lip area that has been lost over time. You undergo a few small injections of filler to the lips and the results can be seen almost immediately, although the full results usually take effect about ten days after your treatment.

Here at Look Lovely London, our dermal filler is made up of Emervel and Restylane, both of which have been designed to give you plump, glamorous lips and a new youthful appearance.

Fillers are made up of a soft gel that contains hyaluronic acid, which is actually found in human collagen, so you can be sure that the results will look natural. The filler itself is also completely biodegradable so your body will naturally break it down over time.

How much do lip plumping injections cost?

When it comes to lip filler injection costs, UK clinics’ fees can vary quite dramatically, ranging from the very cheap to the vastly expensive, both of which we would strongly advise against. Here at Look Lovely London, our prices start from £280 for one syringe of filler and £460 for two syringes, depending on requirements.

Are there any side effects from dermal fillers?

If you’re worried about having lip filler injections, side effects are usually pretty minimal so there is no cause for concern. However, it’s important to remember that lips are more vascular and are more likely to bruise than other areas on the face.

We usually advise our customers to block out a period of about ten days in the diary just in case there is any bruising that they may be likely to feel self-conscious about.

Bruising usually disappears within three to five days after your treatment and our team will always supply you with an ice pack before your treatment which will minimise any bruising, and you can also apply an ice pack to the lip area at home.

Although bruising is more common with lip plumping injections, you can rest assured that dermal fillers are extremely safe and complications are usually pretty rare.

If your thinning lips are getting you down, dermal fillers can really help to restore your natural appearance. And since our policy at Look Lovely London is to avoid the ‘trout pout’ at all costs, you can be absolutely sure that the results will be completely natural looking and nobody will ever need to know that you’ve undergone lip fillers.

Get in touch with our team today on 0203 199 8245 and treat yourself to a new glamorous pout that’ll take years off your age and put a youthful spring back in your step!

Check Out This Secret Trick To Lusciously Full Lips And A Celebrity Approved Pout

No matter what age or gender you are, we all share one thing in common: nobody wants to look older than their years. Indeed, many of us don’t even want to look our actual age and will spend a lot of money to look ten years’ younger.

One of the first signs of ageing, something which in its early stages may only be visible to yourself, is that your lips slowly start to thin over time. Thin lips can add years to your age and are a sure sign that your skin is starting to lose its vitality and youth. The great news is that there is a procedure you can undergo to not only halt the visible signs of ageing but also give your face more definition and a glamorous but all-natural-looking pout.

Lip fillers for thin lips are hugely popular. Since the treatment takes just a few minutes and has long-lasting effects, the procedure is extremely popular for men and women of all ages.

But what are lip fillers? Let’s take a closer look.

How can dermal fillers for thin lips work?

Since fillers contain hyaluronic acid which is found in human collagen, fillers for the face are designed to enhance your facial features as opposed to changing them altogether or dramatically changing the way that you look. By undergoing a few small injections into your lips, you can create a younger, plumper pout within minutes.

Here at Look Lovely London, we use two well-known filler brands: Emervel and Restylane. The fillers are biodegradable so your body will break it down over time and the procedure itself is extremely safe. However, as with all non-surgical enhancements, there are a few minor side effects which very occasionally a patient might experience, the details of which are below.

What are the side effects associated with lip fillers?

Many patients will not experience any side effects whatsoever but the most common side effect associated with lip fillers is minor swelling and redness. However, this is usually short-lived and will disappear after a few minutes.

Since lips are more vascular than other treatable areas on the face, you may find that small bruising develops across the lip area. This will usually disappear within 3-5 days of your treatment and you will be offered an ice pack during and after your treatment to keep bruising to a minimum. Since the main side effect associated with lip fillers is minor bruising, we always recommend to our patients that they plan their diary in advance to allow for this, just in case.

The most important thing to remember is that when it comes to lip fillers, pain is usually very minimal. You may experience a little discomfort when the needle is administered into the lip but since the procedure takes just a few minutes, any minor pain you might experience will only last for a short while.

How much do lip fillers cost?

There are many clinics across the UK offering lip fillers and prices can vary wildly. If you’re centrally based, lip filler prices in London certainly do range from the very cheap to the very expensive, and we would always recommend that you avoid both.

When it comes to any non-surgical enhancements, it’s important to do your research and put your trust in a clinic which is going to look after you, explain the procedure and, above all, charge you a reasonable and competitive rate for the procedure. Here at Look Lovely London, we charge just £280 for 1ml of lip filler.

If you’re unsure about having lip fillers, or you have any concerns about the procedure, our team at Look Lovely London is here to help. You will be offered a free no-obligation consultation to discuss the procedure in more detail and ask any questions you might have. It will also give our experienced doctors the opportunity to review your lip area and make the necessary recommendations.

Our ethos is to only give our patients what they actually need and we don’t believe in overdoing fillers where it isn’t necessary, so you can be sure that you’ll leave our clinic looking younger and, most importantly, completely natural.

Contact our team today on 0203 199 8236 and get yourself well on your way to having an all-natural pout you can be proud of!

Turning Back The Clock With Anti-Wrinkle Injections

How To Fight The Clock, Remove Wrinkles and Get Results Fast

Here at Look Lovely London, we recognise that self-confidence is important to us all. The appearance of fine lines – whether around the forehead, frown area or mouth – can significantly affect a person’s self-esteem. Anti-wrinkle injections offer an effective and fuss-free solution to aging skin, leaving you with a fresher and more youthful appearance. And with our affordable and flexible anti-wrinkle treatment packages, everyone can reap the benefits.

Why use anti-wrinkle injections?

Over time, the effects of smoking, alcohol consumption, dehydration and regular exposure to the sun can take its toll, causing fine lines, deep wrinkles, sagging skin and bags around the eyes. Administered by doctors with years of experience, anti-wrinkle injections restore naturally youthful skin, leaving the patient looking and feeling younger. Excessive sweating in the armpits, hands or feet can also be managed by using anti-wrinkle treatment. London is home to countless cosmetic surgery clinics, so much so that it can be difficult to know which one to choose. The most important thing to consider when selecting a clinic is to check the credentials of the clinic you decide to use. Our team at Look Lovely London has vast experience, qualifications and expertise in administering anti-wrinkle treatment. Our service is always personalised and attentive and patients can rest assured that they are in the best hands.

Which areas can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections?

Whether it’s the appearance of fine lines appearing on your forehead, or the effects of long-term smoking taking its toll around the mouth, anti-wrinkle injections are an effective way to turn back the clock on aging. As well as lines around the forehead and mouth, anti-wrinkle treatment can treat the neck, chin, jaw, area around your eyes (commonly referred to as ‘crows feet’), or in the armpits, hands or feet to combat excessive sweating. At Look Lovely London, we make it our mission to effectively target the areas that are bothering you the most.

Do anti-wrinkle injections look natural?

Look Lovely London values the importance of a natural-looking appearance. If you’re concerned or apprehensive about the effects, you can opt for the ‘Baby Botox®’ option, which consists of a smaller dose of our usual anti-wrinkle injection treatment. This is followed by a two-week review, followed by a further small dose if required.

Do anti-wrinkle injects hurt?

Anti-wrinkle injections cause minimal discomfort for up to five minutes, with most patients experiencing no bruising. For those who do, the bruises are very small, are easily covered with make-up concealer and usually clear within three days.

What can be expected after anti-wrinkle treatment?

Anti-wrinkle injections normally take ten days to come into full effect, with patients noticing that their skin feels smoother and fresher by the second week. As the product naturally breaks down after three or four months of treatment, the patient will notice gradual movement returning to the treated area.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

Anti-wrinkle injections usually last between three to six months – the length of time it takes for the product to be broken down and cleared out of the muscles. Most patients come back for their second treatment after the fourth month, but even twice-a-year treatment has been proven to effectively clear fine lines permanently and reduce future line formation. Studies show that the results of anti-wrinkle treatment last longer after each consecutive treatment.

What do anti-wrinkle injections cost?

A common concern with those looking to turn back the clock is the price of anti-wrinkle injections. London costs can be high, but Look Lovely London’s competitive pricing means that treatment is affordable. One area can cost as little as £140, while those looking to splash out on more than one area can benefit from a slight reduction in cost per area (three areas can cost as little as £270, for example). Excessive sweating treatment costs £450 for both armpits, vertical neckline treatment costs from £350, while prices for a Nefertiti Lift (to redefine the jaw lines) start at £255.

How to Avoid Becoming a Botox Horror Story

With any cosmetic treatment, you’re bound to be feeling a little apprehensive, particularly if this is your first treatment. It can be difficult to know who to trust and which questions to ask. If you’re a Botox® first-timer, the first thing you should do is some research.

There are now many practitioners out there who can offer Botox® treatment to consumers across the world. Here in London there are many clinics offering a range of cosmetic treatments and the prices vary dramatically. Some manage to undercut other practitioners by offering the treatment at a lower cost. Others claim to be industry leaders in the procedure, with sometimes very little goods to back it up. When it comes to cost of Botox® treatment, it can be difficult to know where to start. How much should it cost? Should the practitioners have certain accreditations or qualifications? How often should Botox® be administered?

For the reasons above, it can be daunting to know who to trust, which is why our advice is always to spend time doing your research.

This short guide will help you to make an informed decision to avoid your first Botox® experience being the subject of a Botox® horror story.

Accreditation

Without exception, accreditation and qualifications are what sets any practitioner apart from its competitors, no matter what the treatment or procedure.

Here at Look Lovely London, we take quality standards extremely seriously. That’s why our lead GP, DrDavina Wilson, has recently signed up as a fully-fledged member of Save Face. As the only regulatory body for aesthetic medicine, Save Face expects all members to comply and adhere to quality standards to ensure safe administration of all non-surgical cosmetic treatments.

DrDavina Wilson and Look Lovely London have been fully checked by Save Face to ensure that their qualifications and training are to a high standard. The Save Face team has also visited the clinic to ensure that patients experience high levels of cleanliness and safety. They also ensure that Look Lovely London provides a welcoming environment for patients to enjoy.

With around only 40 other practitioners in central London with the Save Face accreditation, Look Lovely London has been successfully awarded membership so our patients can rest assured that they are in good hands. Given its scope and importance, Save Face is also soon to be acknowledged as a vital regulatory body for patient safety by The Department of Health and Care Quality Commission.

Cost and quality of care

Here at Look Lovely London, we like to strike the right balance between quality of care and cost effectiveness. Many practitioners will offer treatment at a low cost but the quality of care can often be compromised. In order to avoid receiving poor-quality treatment, we always advise that you look into any practitioner’s previous history as well as finding testimonials from other patients. Low cost does not always mean cost effective. Price and quality of care should be of equal importance so we advise that you do not make any compromises on either.

Treatment plans

Another good reason to do your research is because Botox® can sometimes make a person’s face look “frozen”. We’ve all seen the press coverage of celebrity men and women sporting a smooth unlined face with little or no facial expression. This can happen when Botox® is administered too regularly.

Our team strongly advises against having Botox® too regularly. We want our patients to leave our clinic looking young, fresh faced and, above all, natural. If you choose a practitioner who advises very regular treatment but you’re looking for a natural look, we would urge you to discuss this with them in more detail. As the patient, you can decide when and how much Botox® treatment you have, so just remember that you are in control. Our team at Look Lovely London will never advise you to have too much treatment and we’ll happily talk through your treatment plan with you until you feel fully confident in us.

We hope that this guide will help you to choose the right practitioner for you. We’re delighted to be members of Save Face and if you’d like more information on the accreditation, just visit their website www.saveface.co.uk.
