Lip Enhancement – Patient Success Story

May 27, 2016 6:53 am Published by

Photo after dermal filler lip treatment with subtle increase in lip volume. Taken 2 weeks post-treatment.

“I could not be any happier with my lip enhancement. Since I can remember I have felt self conscious and paranoid about my top lip, it completely disappeared when I smiled and because of this it made me want to never laugh or smile!

I am a girl of 26 who loves to socialise and am extremely outgoing therefore this had a huge effect on me. I went for a consultation with Sherina and I instantly felt at ease, I was greeted by Louise who made me comfortable prior to my consultation.

Meeting Sherina I knew I was in good hands, after taking some photos and discussing Juvederm, a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, I felt so confident in my decision to choose S-Thetics and I booked myself in for the following week.

My lip augmentation was quick and easy, numbing cream on and injections in, all done with care, time and patience to ensure I was happy with the results.

I had breaks in between where I held a mirror so I was talked through the process and the minor changes made. Throughout the entire process I had made it clear to Sherina I did not want them to look over done or too dramatic and the results I got were better than I had ever imagined.

I have only Sherina to thank, for finally giving me my smile back!”

About Miss Sherina Balaratnam, founder and Medical Director of S-Thetics Clinic

What happens?

All patients have the option of having a topical anaesthetic cream applied to the treatment area(s) for 30 minutes prior to treatment. This helps to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.

How long does it take?

Treatment time is up to 30 minutes depending on the areas selected and results are immediate, long lasting and natural in appearance.

Treatments can be phased over more than one appointment, giving you control over the ideal look you wish to achieve.

Do the injections hurt?

The latest dermal fillers contain lidocaine, an anaesthetic within the product, and we use the finest gauge needles. Topical anaesthetic cream can also be applied 30 minutes prior to treatment, all of which make lip filler treatment relatively painless.

How frequently do I need them?

Depending on the area treated and injectable filler product selected, you can expect the results to last up to 1 year.

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.

The MD Codes™ at S-Thetics Clinic

February 29, 2016 12:09 pm Published by

Last week I had the honor of being part of the most sought after training event in our profession, the MD Codes™ Visionary Program, with Allergan.

Delivered by Dr Mauricio de Maio, a world-renowned Brazilian plastic surgeon from Sao Paulo and creator of the MD Codes, the 2-day Visionary Program introduced practitioners to a unique, strategic and methodical way of analysing and treating patients’ faces.

By understanding how our facial anatomy evolves as we age, and utilising the Allergan portfolio of dermal fillers, these advanced injecting skills allow me to sympathetically restore and rejuvenate a patients face in a balanced and harmonious way.

MDCodes-Miss-Sherina-Balaratnam-Dr-Mauricio-de-maio

Miss Sherina Balaratnam with Dr Mauricio de Maio, Brazlian Plastic Surgeon and creator of the MD Codes

I have had the pleasure of learning directly with Dr de Maio for over 5 years now, since being part of the UK Allergan Faculty. As one of only a few hand-picked doctors chosen to represent Allergan as a “Local Country Ambassador” (LCA), I was amongst the first UK doctors to be trained on the MD Codes.

This 1-to-1 training first began with the 8-Point Lift, which Dr de Maio identified as the 8 key areas of the face such as the apex of the cheek, over to the angle of the jawline to give lift, projection and improve facial sagging.

Fast forward 5 years and we are now introduced to 75 facial codes, which take into consideration key subunits within our facial units (such as the temples, forehead, eyes, cheeks, lips, chin and jawline).

Addressing individual subunits with careful attention to detail, low injection volumes and respecting individual facial profiles whilst using the correct facial fillers now puts us in a unique position where we can deliver safe, predictable and elegant results to our patients.

MDCodes-dermal-filler-Buckinghamshire-S-Thetics-Beaconsfield

What are the MD Codes?

They take into account a patient’s full face, addressing the following facial units in a strategic fashion:

  • Forehead
  • Glabella (Frown)
  • Temples
  • Eyebrow
  • Eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Marionette Region
  • Lips
  • Chin
  • Jawline

The MD Codes look at these individual facial units and breaks them down into sub-units, so as to optimise the patient’s results.

They represent a synergy between a deep, surgical knowledge of your facial anatomy and how these areas work in harmony to create the ideal aesthetic outcome.

S-Thetics-Beaconsfield-Buckinghamshire-MD-Codes

 

How will this technique benefit me?

Previously, more outdated techniques of simply chasing lines or injecting directly into target areas, could create a more unnatural appearance as they fail to take into consideration a patients’ anatomy and unique ageing pattern, and instead treat the symptom of ageing rather than the cause.

By taking a more anatomical approach, as well as identifying the patients’ ageing concerns themselves during the consultation process, the MD Codes enable a more analytical, strategic and uniform delivery of advanced injectable skill to help treat the causes of facial ageing.

The desired result is a healthy, refreshed look – like after a good night’s sleep or holiday – not to dramatically change the way you look or make you look like someone else.

What products do you use?

S-Thetics use the Juvéderm® range of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) facial fillers manufactured by Allergan, which is the number-1 product range on the market, with over 25 years of experience and clinical trials demonstrating safety and efficacy.

These products have a smooth consistency, meaning that they can last for longer, result in less swelling and give a more natural look and feel. Depending on the area treated, results can last from 12-18 months.

The Juvéderm® range also contains the mild local anaesthetic lidocaine, which allows for a gentle injection experience. If you have any needle anxieties you will be offered a numbing cream to alleviate any potential discomfort.

S-Thetics Clinic featured in the Riverside Journals – advice on dermal filler treatments

February 12, 2016 3:10 pm Published by

Miss Balaratnam, Medical Director of S-Thetics Clinic, is featured in the Riverside Journals Winter edition, with practical advice for those considering having dermal filler treatments.

Did you know that three million women would consider facial fillers? Allergan, global pharmaceutical company and manufacturer of temporary filler Juvéderm®, found that 90% of those who had facial filler treatments were satisfied with their results – a glowing contrast to what is reported and sensationalised within everyday media.

The fillers we use at S-Thetics are composed of Hyaluronic Acid (“HA). HA is found in abundance in our skin, cartilage, joints and the fluid in our eyes and is the most water-loving molecule known to man. Around 1/3rd of our total HA is made and broken down daily, and as we age our bodies’ natural ability to regenerate HA slowly decreases.

Lip enhancement – Patient Success Story

Our patient, Victoria, who recently had lip fillers with the latest Juvéderm® VOLIFT® range of dermal fillers.

Our patients typically come to us requesting the correction and beautification of their lips. We deliver subtle and elegant results using the latest in dermal filler technology.

Dermal fillers are typically made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar found in the Juvéderm® posters (8 of 9)body. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases, which is why lip volume can decrease and lines can appear around the mouth.

Treatments can be phased over more than one appointment, giving you control over the ideal look you wish to achieve.
