As we grow older, our skin begins to lose its youthful glow, becoming tarnished with wrinkles, age spots, redness and a wealth of other problems. It’s the tell-tale sign of how old we are – and sometimes it makes us look even older! But, what can you do? Is there are a way to turn back time and regain the confidence of having youthful skin? In short, yes, there is!
As we grow older, it’s a fact of life that our body changes. Skin begins to wrinkle, our faces start to droop and the youthful glow that most of us took for granted fades. But, there are ways you can lessen, or even reverse, the signs of ageing and keep your skin looking younger for longer.
Whether you’ve been wearing plugs, or your heavy earrings have stretched or completely ripped the fleshy part of your ear, don’t panic – it’s not the end of the world! We can fix them for you. At The London Cosmetic Clinic, we offer earlobe repair (otherwise known as lobuloplasty) to get those ears back in shape.
At some point in our lives, we all realise that age is creeping up on us. From the fine wrinkles that seem to appear overnight around your eyes to the thinning of the skin on your neck, the ageing process certainly isn’t kind on our appearance.
Excessive sweating is neither hygienic nor pleasant. If you battle with perspiration, you’ll know how much of a problem it can be in day to day life, whether you’re going to the gym or going for dinner – sweat isn’t just limited to sport!
Here at The London Cosmetic Clinic, two of our most in demand non-surgical cosmetic procedures are semi-permanent makeup and wrinkle injections. Both of these are great for boosting self-esteem in men and women, tackling problems that may be knocking your self-confidence. Everyone wants to feel great, and these treatments help you to get there!
The skin around the eyes can be one of the most ageing areas of the face, and not just because of those pesky wrinkles. Dark circles and bags, sunken eyes and deep tear troughs can all contribute to making you look far older (and way more tired) than you actually are. But what can you do about it?
A lot of people, both men and women, have insecurities in their facial shape and structure. These kinds of insecurities can be incredibly debilitating in day-to-day life and really get you down! Your self-esteem and confidence can take a knock, too, making you feel like you’re not being the best version of yourself that you could be.
Nose jobs certainly aren’t a new beauty procedure to grace our nation. They’re arguably one of the most popular enhancements available and have been for a long time, both amongst celebrities and us regular Brits. They can transform a face completely!
Moles and birthmarks can be found anywhere around the face and body and are usually harmless but can make you feel self-conscious if they are larger or in a conspicuous area. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we remove moles and birthmarks with minimal discomfort and without the need for surgery.
At our Knightsbridge based clinic we use a few different methods to remove birthmarks and moles dependent on the size, depth and location of them, these include-
- Shave excision- removing the mole with a dermablade, leaving a very small wound that is cauterised and does not require stitches.
- Elliptical excision- a deeper excision that is suitable for deeper moles so that they are removed completely and will not return. You may require stitches for the resulting wound which will be dissolvable or non-dissolvable.
- Hyfrecator treatment- we use low-powered medical apparatus to directly destroy the tissue of the mole and at the same time stop any resulting bleeding. It is quick and only leaves a small superficial wound.
In a small amount of cases, moles can be linked to skin cancer. In these cases, we send a sample of your mole to a laboratory for analysis so that any abnormal cells can be detected.
As with all our treatments, you will have a free consultation where we will assess the size, location and depth of your mole and discuss suitable treatment options. It is always important to practise good aftercare so that you do not run the risk of infections or scarring, and we advise that you keep your wound clean and apply a prescribed antibiotic cream. If your mole removal has required stitches, we will schedule a follow up appointment to remove these.
