Facial Fillers – patient success story

Before and immediately after dermal filler treatment with improvement in skin volume, structure and texture

Hear from our patient, Liz, 52, who recently had full face revolumising treatment with the latest Juvéderm® Vycross™ dermal fillers at S-Thetics Clinic:

“I am fifty two and have been for the most part quite happy with the way I looked, give or take a few pounds or a few bad haircuts, however things took quite a turn as I hit my fifties and suddenly I began to feel that I looked really unattractive and whilst before a change of make-up or a new dress would make all the difference, of late it just made me feel worse.

Make-up looked heavy and my predisposition for vintage clothes made me look like I’d lived it first time round.

The contours of my face had really softened, especially around the jaw line, giving me a jowly look, also my under chin had become ‘soft’ and loose. This was especially noticeable in profile or when I put my chin down.

Dr Sherina’s approach is very inclusive, she spent a long time discussing with me how I felt about my appearance and what affect this was having on me, the conversation was friendly and all my questions were very clearly and fully answered.

In all honesty I only felt a mild discomfort and although obviously there are needles involved so some people might be wary, for me it was only a question of relaxing into the idea and after that I was absolutely fine, I’ve had acupuncture before and it was less uncomfortable than that.

The results are outstanding, just looking at the before and after photos I couldn’t believe how much more serene and fresh I looked.

My face immediately seemed lifted, which took away the heaviness and the dark shadows of the nose to mouth lines and amazingly enough and best of all, my nose appears less sunken and smaller and my eyes look wider and less heavy under the brow bone.

I feel definitely more attractive and this has had an effect on so many levels, when I get dressed instead of feeling frumpy in my usual clothes and generally negative about my whole ‘look’, now I feel that my outfits make me happy, and that I actually look how I think of myself as looking.

I have regained some sort of sparkle that I definitely lost, and that is the best feeling in the world!

I would without a shadow of a doubt have this treatment again and will have maintenance treatments when I feel I need them.”

Liz Morris, 52

“Fillers aren’t here to FILL. They are here to be used to correct areas where volume loss has caused signs that we do not like, as they make our faces look different from how they used to be.

My patients don’t come to me asking to be filled. They come asking to look less tired, less angry, more awake, like they’ve just been on holiday and like they’ve just had a good night’s sleep.

Liz came to me as she had just turned 52 and felt that her face didn’t match how she felt inside. She is a happy, free spirited woman, however felt that she was looking tired and that her face was starting to drop, making her look heavy.

After a detailed consultation and treatment plan we agreed on carrying out a dermal filler strategy using the latest MD Codes in a full face approach.

It was evident from her assessment that she needed volume correction in all of her facial compartments which were slowly and naturally starting to lose volume. Something that happens to us all as we age.

The last photo was taken 6 weeks later, once the fillers have had a chance to integrate with our skin and soft tissues. The results look and feel like her. And it IS her.

But, as she says, just better, fresher, and more beautiful.”

Patient Success Story at S-Thetics Medical Aesthetic Clinic, Beaconsfield

April 28, 2016 11:46 am Published by

Hear from our patient, Grace, 37, who recently had a medical consultation followed by muscle relaxing treatment at S-Thetics Clinic.

“I have 2 children the eldest is 5 so I’ve had 5 years of no sleep basically!

I did a bit of my own research on Sherina and was very impressed.

Sometimes you can really tell when people have had fillers or BOTOX® done and it’s really not noticeable that I’ve had it, I just look a lot more well rested.

I’m really happy, I’ll definitely continue and I would definitely recommend S-Thetics to anybody”

Muscle-relaxing injections are a type of non-permanent cosmetic treatment, which can be used to effectively treat fine-to-medium lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles in the skin.

slide-3

At S-Thetics we use the market-leading brand of muscle-relaxing injections, BOTOX®. This product has been on the market for over 25 years and was originally approved by the FDA as a medical treatment for a number of muscular conditions.

During this time, it has been extensively studied with more than 65 clinical trials involving 15,000 people, making it one of the most reliable, effective and safe products on the market.

Muscle relaxing injections are commonly used to treat:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet

  • Jawline lift and necklace lines (Nefertiti lift)

  • Excessive teeth grinding and clenching

  • Excessive underarm sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Why choose S-Thetics for your non-surgical treatment?

Why choose S-Thetics for your non-surgical treatment?

What happens?

All patients are offered a topical anaesthetic cream which is applied to the treatment area(s) for 30 minutes. This helps to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.

How long does it take?

Treatment time is usually between 15-30 minutes depending on the area(s) selected.

Is there any downtime?

There is little or no downtime associated with these treatments. There may be mild redness following treatment which will quickly subside.

Your treatment will be discussed with you during your consultation and medical consent.

How frequently do I need them?

Depending on the area treated, results usually last between 3-4 months as the movement in the muscle comes back over time.

We advise all new patients to return for a dose review three weeks after their initial treatment to ensure the best results.

S-Thetics is a state-of-the-art medical aesthetic clinic located in the heart of Beaconsfield Old Town in Buckinghamshire specialising in advanced non-surgical treatments for the face and body.

Founded by surgeon and cosmetic doctor, Miss Sherina Balaratnam, S-Thetics is the first medical aesthetic clinic in the Beaconsfield area.

Natural Beauty – A Guide to Facial Fillers

April 8, 2016 11:48 am Published by

Most patients having a cosmetic treatment are seeking a more youthful appearance, but still want to look like themselves. So a good rule of thumb is to undergo temporary procedures that wear off, before committing to something permanent.

A 2013 study in a leading Facial Plastic Surgery journal has shown that, while cosmetic surgery can make people look younger, it doesn’t necessarily make them more beautiful.

Erasing lines and folds, tightening sagging skin, or restoring young full lips may rejuvenate some faces, but as we are all aware, can also look odd and a bit out of balance on others.

Patients new to fillers often bring up fear of this kind of “unnatural” result, causing some to avoid treatments altogether.

The restoration of a natural volume distribution is a major goal in facial rejuvenation. Having a detailed understanding of facial anatomy to recognize “what’s been lost where” on a case-by-case basis so as to individualise treatment plans, helps to offer the sort of subtle and natural-looking results desired by my patients who often tell me that they don’t want to look done, but just want to perhaps look less tired.

– Do I need a different day and night regime?

– Can one range effectively treat multiple concerns?

My patients are also becoming increasingly aware of how their skin changes both through the seasons and with their lifestyle.

Universkin allows us to customise your skincare formulation precisely for your skin.

Skin Deep: How to reduce skin blemishes

March 2, 2016 9:42 am Published by

With winter weather settling in comfortably, summer can seem a long way off. Achieving our summer bodies begins in the winter and the same goes for your skin.

skin-hydration-hyaluronic-acid-S-Thetics-clinic-Buckinghamshire-Beaconsfield

Blemishes are skin imperfections like acne, pigmentation and dark marks that occur over time due to inflammatory changes in the skin, and can affect our confidence.

Apart from our liver, our skin is the 2nd most mistreated organ, taking a beating from the cumulative and damaging effect of the sun, stress, lifestyle and hormonal change.

These are my top tips for reducing blemishes and improving your skin health this winter:
