Dental BlocksA dental block is an injection between the lips and gum that provides numbing to the patient prior to their dermal filler treatment. The numbing should then make the procedure relatively painless for the patient. Dental blocks are not required for every dermal filler treatment so it would depend on the patient and level of procedure. Due to the risk of complications occurring, it’s important that a practitioner has insurance cover to protect themselves against a potential claim.
Sclerotherapy/MicrosclerotherapySclerotherapy and Microsclerotherapy are used to treat spider or thread veins in the legs. These thread veins are usually very near to the surface of the skin and less than 1-2 mm in diameter. They will usually be a distinct red, blue or purple colour. A small needle is used to inject minute amounts sclerosant into the vein which should cause the vein to swell. Over several weeks, this swelling will destroy the vein which should lead to it becoming much less noticeable or even invisible. It is important that practitioners manage the patient’s expectations carefully as most procedures result in a 75% disappearance of the vein.
MicrodermabrasionMicrodermabrasion is used to reduce wrinkles and skin blemishes through the use of fine crystals in order to loosen any dead skin cells. A small vacuum then removes these dead cells which should improve the tone and texture of the skin. As many treatments may be required by the patient, having a comprehensive insurance policy in place is crucial for a practitioner.
Light Treatment for AcneLasers deliver a high energy beam of thermal energy to remove the outer layers of the skin. The body then naturally repairs these layers with healthier skin which should result in aesthetic improvements. Laser skin rejuvenation relates to any laser treatment that makes the skin look better and skin resurfacing is a method of achieving this. Laser skin resurfacing is most effective at improving lines and wrinkles, scars, sun-damaged skin and acne.
RadiofrequencyRadiofrequency is a non-surgical method of tightening skin that is showing early signs of looseness or sagging. It can also be used to remove excess pockets of fat. A device is used to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin which then converts into heat energy in order to breakdown fatty cells and stimulate the production of collagen.
Micro-current TreatmentMicro-current treatment can help to reduce wrinkles, offer a better complexion and improve the appearance of scars. Small micro-currents of electricity cause muscles to gently exercise which should result in tighter and firmer skin. It is imperative that practitioners are covered in the event that a claim is made against them for the micro-current treatments that they perform.
Body Contouring/Weight Loss LipolysisBody contouring is any procedure that alters the shape of the body. These can include facelifts, tummy tucks and thigh lifts. Weight loss lipolysis is a type of body contouring in which substances contribute to the breaking down of fat cells which the body can then naturally dispose of.
Oxygen TherapyOxygen therapy allows patients to breathe 100% pure pressurised oxygen. This makes each cell saturated with 100% pure oxygen which in turn should improve the skin’s texture and reduce wrinkles, fine lines and scars. The elasticity of ageing skin is increased as a result and collagen production is boosted through frequent oxygen therapy treatments.
Lip ImplantLip implants are used in order to give fuller, plumper looking lips. Patients are usually injected with dermal filler, most commonly hyaluronic acid, in order to change the shape and structure as well as increase the volume of the lips. The effects of lip implants tend to last around six months with further treatment usually required after this time as a result. With the popularity of lip implants ever increasing, unfortunately so are the number of complications occurring. We can protect practitioners for the lip implant procedures they carry out and advice they give to patients.
miraDrymiraDry is a new treatment designed specifically to reduce underarm sweat and doesn’t involve any surgical incisions or cuts. miraDry eliminates sweat glands in the underarm area by applying controlled and precise electromagnetic energy. Practitioners should have an adequate insurance policy in place in the event that a claim is made against them.
CarboxytherapyCarboxytherapy is the process of injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide into the surface of the skin on the face or body. This ‘tricks’ the body into distributing more oxygen to that area which should help rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin. It can help alleviate various issues including cellulite, stretch marks and scars as well as assisting in reducing fat.
Platest Rich Plasma (PRP)This a natural method of skin and hair rejuvenation and wound healing which uses your body’s own natural resources to improve the tone and texture of your skin and promote hair growth on the scalp. The treatment requires a small sample of the patient’s blood being taken which is then spun in a centrifuge which separates into the red blood cells, the platelets and serum. The platelets are then injected back into the area of the body that requires stimulation and rejuvenation.
The P Shot (Priapus Shot)This treatment is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for the penis to assist men with concerns such erectile dysfunction, improvement in sensation and function and also has been reported to assist with increasing girth and size when combined with the use of a pump.
The O Shot (Orgasm Shot)This treatment is also via PRP but for women and aims to heighten sexual satisfaction, reduce vaginal dryness, painful sexual intercourse and to regain or improve female orgasm.
TixelTixel uses patented technology which uses pure heat energy to evaporate tissue in a controlled way. Its results are similar to the CO2 fractional laser but Tixel is more comfortable and has less downtime. The treatment can be customised to each different patient’s skin so that the maximum results can be achieved and there are three different applications.
DermaplaningDermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliating treatment whereby a sterile scalpel is used to “shave” the skin’s surface. It removes the build-up of dead skin along with fine hairs which are also known as peach fuzz. The treatment triggers the cell regeneration and can be particularly effective for patients who may have a rough or a dry skin texture and helps to minimise superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone.
Bio-Identical Hormone TherapyThroughout the ageing process many men and women can experience changes both emotionally and physically because there is a reduction in hormones. As a result this can cause issues such as a lack of energy, sweats or hot flushes, mood swings, reduced libido difficulty sleeping and issues with bone density or osteoporosis. Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is an alternative to HRT and the Bio-identical hormones contain the same chemical structure to what our body’s produces and are found in plant sources. A patient requiring this treatment would attend a consultation and undergo test so that the practitioner can advise what the results mean and then prescribe the relevant Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy to remedy this. Each prescription for this treatment is personalised to the individual.
ULTRAcelThis treatment is a non-invasive treatment for the purpose of skin tightening. It combines both radiofrequency and ultrasound and is able to target and deliver heat to collagen in the deeper layers of skin. In doing this, growth of fresh and healthy collagen is stimulated which in turn lifts the skin and makes it look both firmer and tighter. It can also assist with increasing the smoothness of the skin giving a more youthful look.
Ultrasonic Body Contouring & Skin TighteningThis procedure is designed to be a minimally invasive method to remove unwanted fat cells and contour the body. The main areas of treatment and abdomen, inner and outer thighs and the flanks and works by concentrating ultrasound waves to break down fat cells in the desired areas and protects the outside layers of skin, nerves and blood vessels.
Cryolipolysis/CryoLipo/Cool Sculpting/CoolTechThis is a non-invasive method of fat removal. It works by cooling the subcutaneous fat cells which causes lipolysis to begin, meaning that the fat cells break down. This is done without any damage to the tissues or skin within the surrounding area and the treatment is typically used on the back and stomach area. This is not a permanent solution to reducing fat as some patients do find that the remaining fat cells can increase in size if not done in conjunction with exercising and a balanced diet.
LED PhototherapyThis treatment works by exposing the skin to low levels of beneficial light energy from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum which then energises the cellular functions pf skin to stimulate a variety of cellular processes which can then have therapeutic effects. When the skin cells are energised the function better and regenerate quicker which means that skin then appears younger, healthier and more radiant
Thread LiftThe procedure is aimed to treat mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues and works by lifting different parts of the skin through the use of specially designed threads. There are two main types used in this procedure; Free floating cogged or barbed threads which do not need to be suspended in order to hold of lift. The second type is smooth or suspension threads which need to be anchored to a stable structure of the face or scalp. Local anaesthetic is used and the recovery after is quick.
Hair Transplant – Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) MethodThis method is more advanced than previous strip methods and works by the doctor extracting hair follicles from a donor area and then transferring them to the area requiring growth and implanted using a stereo microscope in groups of one to four hairs. The procedure is a minimally invasive, surgical procedure.
Hair Transplant – Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) MethodThis method of hair transplant is where a strip of hair is taken either from the sides or back and sides of the scalp and then transplanted to the desired area.
General Beauty TreatmentsThere are a range of covers that are covered under general beauty treatments which are facials, pedicures, manicures, eyebrow tinting/threading, waxing, makeup, ear piercing and massage.
Plasma TreatmentsPlasma treatment works by emitting tiny dots of energy onto the skin changing it from a solid into a gas. It works on the superficial skin cells without affecting the deeper layers. The skin forms tiny carbon crusts which over 5-7 days fall off and there is no bleeding and damaging the surrounding tissue. The treatment is suitable for the upper and lower eyelids and is a safe and quicker alternative to traditional blepharoplasty.
Non-Surgical RhinoplastyAs an alternative to the traditional rhinoplasty this is a technique using temporary lasting figures for the purpose of reshaping, straightening and boosting definition of the nose. This is a much safer method compared to surgical intervention. Although the procedure would need to be repeated every 18 months due to the fillers only being temporary lasting, this can be beneficial as the technique can be adapted as the face changes with age.
AqualyxThis is an injectable lipolysis and body contouring treatment that is made up of a modified compound of cholanic acid. It was developed to treat localised pockets of fat on the back, chin, stomach, underneath the buttocks, hips, thighs and knees. It can also be used to treat pseudo-gynaecomastia in men. It works by being injected into the desired treatment area and altering the tension of the surface of the fat cell membrane and also increases the permeability of the membrane. Following the injection, an ultrasound device is then applied over the surface area of the skin which causes the liquids to move inside and outside of the fat cells. These cells enlarge and break up and then drain out of the body via the lymphatic system and are excreted.
IV Nutrition TherapyThis treatment is wear a controlled dose of electrolytes, vitamins, minerals and nutrients delivered intravenously into the bloodstream. They are chosen or recommended to patients who are suffering from low energy, as an anti-ageing aid, to boost the immune system, as a hydration cure for hangovers, for jet lag or to optimise sporting performance. Each solution is made up differently depending on what it is aiming to assist with.
