The thinner the skin on our faces and bodies, the more delicate and susceptible to damage it is, such is the case with our earlobes which can easily become stretched, damaged and even ripped, especially if you tend to wear heavy earrings. If your ears have become stretched or damaged, we can help repair them at our Knightsbridge-based clinic.

To start the procedure, we need to freshen the wound to slightly expose the skin and make repairing the earlobe more successful. We use an anaesthetic to numb the ear and then carefully remove the top layer of skin. This allows us to reconstruct and repair the earlobe and fix them into place with small surgical stitches. The whole procedure takes approximately an hour.

You will then have a follow up appointment about two weeks after our procedure where we will remove the stitches and check how your earlobes are healing. The process is non-invasive, quick and doesn’t require major surgery or general anaesthetic so you won’t have to take any down time to recover. We recommend that you wash your hair the day before the procedure as you will need to keep the ear area dry for 3-4 days post-treatment and you must keep the area clean and dry using saline solution. It will take approximately 6 months for your earlobes to fully heal and you can have them pierced again after then if you wish.

Earlobe Repair in Knightsbridge

Filler treatments can be an effective solution to lines and wrinkles, but there can be drawbacks and many of them are permanent so if you aren’t happy with the results or your face changes again, you need to get further treatments to correct them. At The London Cosmetic Clinic in Knightsbridge we offer the Sculptra Liquid Facelift to plump and smooth wrinkles all around the face without any invasive treatments as an alternative.

The Sculptra Liquid Facelift involves precisely injecting poly-l-lactic acid, a substance that has been used for over 25 years in surgical operations, as a volumising agent and to stimulate collagen production, which is needed to give the skin its elasticity. As with all our treatments, you will have a free consultation beforehand where we will assess the condition of your skin and discuss what areas require treatment and how much of the product will be used.

The treatment is non-invasive and requires no general anaesthetic or surgical equipment but we will apply a topical numbing agent to minimise discomfort. The Sculptra solution is then injected into the areas that you would like treated by our doctor and gently massaged into place. The treatment takes around 30 minutes and you should start to notice results after around six weeks. We recommend two or three sessions of the Sculptra Liquid Facelift, depending on the condition of your skin. As well as adding volume to your skin, it stimulates collagen production so your skin continues to repair itself.

Your results will last for approximately two years and the solution will harmlessly pass through your system as it is broken down. You can then decide if you would like the treatment repeatedly. We can treat many areas around the face including nose to mouth lines, the forehead and even on deep scars.

If you would like to know more about this treatment or would like to book a consultation at our Knightsbridge-based clinic, please contact us and speak with a member of our team.

Skin Rejuvenation with the Sculptra Liquid Facelift

It’s really important to get enough sunshine for vitamin D and to boost our mood but too much UV exposure can lead to premature aging and other skin imperfections such as age spots and redness. We use Ellipse IPL skin rejuvenation treatment at the London Cosmetic Clinic in Knightsbridge to help reverse the signs of aging and make skin look more evenly pigmented.

IPL treatment, short for intense pulsed light, involves using various different wavelengths of light on the skin. This is absorbed by the skin and has various effects including stimulating collagen production and breaking down areas of excess melanin (the pigment in the skin) so that age spots and freckles start to disappear. Depending on the area that is being treated and the condition of the skin, you may need up to 6 sessions of our IPL skin rejuvenation treatment, each spaced 4 weeks apart. We will discuss this at your free consultation. The end result is skin that is smoother, more elastic and is more evenly pigmented.

IPL treatments work best on lighter skin tones and we recommend that you avoid sunbeds and use a SPF of at least 30 to avoid any damage to your skin post-treatment. The treatment can make your skin feel a bit tight and hot afterwards but you can apply aloe vera gel to help soothe it. If you would like to know more about our IPL skin rejuvenation treatment or book your free consultation, call us today and speak to a member of our team.

Skin Rejuvenation with the Ellipse IPL System

Hay fever is one of the most common allergies in the UK and can really put a dampener on the summer months. As well as sneezing, it can also cause a sore, itchy throat, a blotchy face, running eyes and congestion. At the London Cosmetic Clinic in Knightsbridge we now offer Kenalog hay fever injections to relieve hay fever sufferers of their symptoms.

Kenalog injections are a form of corticosteroid that contains triamcinolone. As the symptoms of hay fever are caused by the body releasing histamines and other inflammatory chemicals as a reaction to pollen and seasonal allergens, the triamcinolone suppresses this and the effects last for the entire pollen season.

Prior to your treatment you will have a free consultation with us where we will discuss your medical background, the severity of your hay fever and the possible results. The Kenalog hay fever treatment is injected into one of your buttocks as it is an intra-muscle injection and we advise that you keep the area clean and do not touch the needle entry point for four hours post-treatment. This is to minimise any risk of infection.

To avoid the risk of any complications, we do ask that you are open with us about any medical history such as diabetes or cold sores. If you suffer from hay fever but find that traditional medication is not having an effect or are tired of taking hay fever medication every day, contact us today and book your free consultation for our Kenalog hay fever treatment.
