Cosmetic Injectables are a great way of getting predictable, natural-looking results without any invasive procedures and with minimal recovery time. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we offer the Sculptra liquid facelift which helps restore the contours of the face, boost its volume and plump out lines and wrinkles.
The volumising liquid in Sculptra is poly-l-lactic acid, a biocompatible and biodegradable liquid that has been used successfully in surgical operations for over 25 years. Whilst most fillers work by plumping the skin themselves, i.e. by being the filling themselves, Sculptra is different in that it encourages the skin to produce its own collagen. This means that the result is more true to the patient’s appearance and looks completely natural and proportioned. It can be used in wrinkles and lines around the face such as nasolabial folds and sunken cheeks as well as being used on deep scars.
Prior to your treatment we apply a numbing agent and the liquid is massaged after being injected. You may need two or three sessions, depending on the severity of your lines and it takes around six weeks for the effects to become noticeable. After your treatment you do not have to take any time off from your usual schedule and, as it is non-invasive, there are no stitches and no risk of infection.

Reversing Aging with Sculptra, The Liquid Facelift
Nail fungus can be a really persistent problem and can occur on the fingernails as well as the toenails. It can become more common with age, in those with diabetes or circulation problems and, with toenails, those who do regular exercise or use communal showers and changing areas. You can of course get antifungal nail paints and oral medication but some people find that they get unpleasant side effects such as nausea and headaches. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we can treat nail fungus without chemicals or medication with the use of the Ellipse Nordlys system.
Using a very precise form of laser, we treat the whole nail with flashes of infrared light. This destroys the fungus by creating a heat reaction and we use a series of flashes that are overlapped and repeated to ensure that we have treated the entire nail. No fungus will be able to lurk around! The treatment only takes 15 minutes and you will probably need 3-4 sessions, each spaced about a fortnight apart plus a follow-up appointment.
If you have spotted yellow streaks on and underneath your nails, discoloured and thickened nails, nails that have become brittle or, as the infection progresses, a powdery appearance on the nail surface, you may have nail fungus. The Ellipse Nordlys Onychomychosis treatment is very effective at removing nail fungus but it doesn’t prevent it from appearing again in the future. You can protect yourself from nail fungus reoccurring by drying your feet thoroughly, wearing breathable socks and shoes, wearing flip flops in communal showers, using antibacterial soap when washing your hands and always cutting your toenails in a straight line.
If you have nail fungus that is proving stubborn to treat, contact us to arrange a free consultation. There is no need to be embarrassed and you’ll be back in peep toe shoes in no time!
Not that long ago Botulinum toxin injections had a bad reputation for looking false and giving a frozen, emotionless expression but can you actually get the wrinkle busting effects from these anti-aging injections whilst looking natural? At the London Cosmetic Clinic we have proven that you can!
At our Knightsbridge-based clinic we focus on making you look like the best possible version of yourself so we work with your natural features to achieve the best results. Our practitioners have several years of experience on over a thousand patients administering anti-aging injections so know how to utilise it to get great results that boosts the patient’s appearance without looking false or too ‘done’.
During your consultation we will carefully analyse your face, focussing on any ‘trouble zones’ that make you feel self-conscious and determine what results are achievable. We also ask you to pull several different expressions so that we can see how your muscles move naturally and which motions are causing the skin to wrinkle; this is key to making sure we use the right amount of the Botulinum toxin and getting it precisely in the right areas. As it works by stopping the nerve impulses moving the muscles, the less the muscles move, the less they can cause the skin to wrinkle. We have found that using small amounts placed in a precise manner helps to get great results without making patients look too ‘done’. You may not see a noticeable difference straight after the treatment but over a couple of weeks you should start to see an improvement.
We use only the best quality ingredients and our practitioners have years of training and experience so you know that you are in good hands. You will look more youthful and relaxed without looking like a waxwork model!
