Facial peels

24/03/2016 at 09:48:48 | by Dr Alison Duncan
The VI peel and VI peel acne represent the next generation of chemical exfoliant unlike any others you may have experienced. It is comfortable to have applied, which is a huge improvement on the acute severe burning you experience with 20-30% TCA peels. It is convenient, with peeling occurring through the 3rd to 6th days after treatment. You go home with a lovely after care pack, too.
VI peel, contains five acids, and TCA is one of them. It also has phenolic acid, the strongest acid peel currently used in aesthetics, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, and ascorbic acid. With all of those ingredients and the comfort afforded by the phenol, it is the best peel I use. It gives the results of a good deep peel, not that from shop bought or beauty salon glycolic acid peels.
It it is indicated for anti-aging, acne,  Hyperpigmentation, melasma, sunspots, mild acne scars, dull lifeless skin, it improves tone and texture and is suitable for sensitive skin types. Fine lines and wrinkles improve, with the skin appearing smoother. Up to 71% of patients report such. The collagen content of the skin is increased which gives a suppleness to the skin.
The radical thing about VI Peel and s that it can be safely used over the eyelids! We all have fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes that we want to improve. The peel can also be used on neck, décolleté, hands.
i've has the VI peel twice and can vouch for it's effectiveness and comfort. There is no way I would go back to pure TCA which is barbaric, less are, and cannot be used around the eyes out over the eyelids. It is safe to apply over the neck and décolleté which are prone to "catching" with TCA . Would highly recommend this peel even for the scariest of patients!

Botox anti-wrinkle injections are the most popular treatment at Medical Cosmetic Service. Dr Alison Duncan is experienced in offering a light touch and also total neutralisation of muscular movement when appropriate. Botox  is used to inject specific areas of the face to ease out lines and wrinkles, and also underarms to prevent excess sweating ( hyperhidrosis). 
The he most popular areas for Botox treatment are
  • Frown lines and wrinkles
  • Forehead lines and creases between the brows
  • Crows feet and laughter lines 
  • Wrinkly chin
  • Underarms (hyperhidrosis)
Having a natural look means you are still able to show expressions after having Botox. It should not be obvious that you have had Botox. In fact you should look as if you don't need it!
There are various brands and types of Botox. At Medical Cosmetic Service, I use Azzalure, a French brand, which will last 3-5 months.
There are few contraindications to the use of Botox, but these would be cleared during your assessment with me as a Doctor. There are few complications and safety issues; the NHS clinic and theatre fridges are full of Botox! It is used in much higher doses in general medicine and for a longer time period, than in cosmetic medicine. If it wasn't a safe and effective treatment, it wouldn't be used in the NHS. Give it a go! It's not addictive, and you can try it just the once without any long term issues. If you do have Botox regularly, your wrinkles and lines will only get better, not worse. What's not to like?

Juvederm Ultra

24/03/2016 at 09:46:14 | by Dr Alison Duncan
Juvederm Ultra is a range of smooth consistency gels made from hyaluronic acid- a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Dr Alison Duncan at Medical Cosmetic Service uses this product as the main filler in her clinics, because of the smooth, natural look it gives and the fact that it contains local anaesthetic which aids comfort of the injections.
Juvederm Ultra has good longevity, with 75% of patients maintaining an improvement for up to one year. Juvederm Ultra will instantly redefine your lips, smooth away your facial wrinkles and restore your skin's volume. It provides a smooth natural look and feel. You will notice the results yourself, but no one will know!
i always offer numbing cream with my filler treatments; I don't endorse the no pain, no gain philosophy. I definitely advise against taking alcohol and aspirin/ ibuprofen several days before treatment, to minimise the risk of bruising. Antihistamine helps to reduce any puffiness experienced with lip injections, and arnica pillules do help to reduce the risk of bruises.
The treatment is always preceded by a full medical consultation, and you are reassured that a qualifies doctor is doing the treatment at Medical Cosmetic Service clinics. 

New Threadvein Treatment

22/03/2016 at 09:55:32 | by Dr Alison Duncan
Nubway, a reputable  Chinese company,  have developed a machine which is portable and easy to use for the treatment of threadveins. I can now offer this therapy in both my clinics, to help eradication of all those little annoying streaks that don't stay covered with foundation or concealer, and can make wearing beach wear a nightmare if they are on the legs.
The treatment has immediate effects, and does not affect normal daily life and work. The whole treatment occurs at the skin surface; no piercing of the skin, so no damage, bleeding or scarring. There will be short lived redness over the treated area for 24 hours, which can be concealed by makeup. No needle marks or massive worsening of the veins as with microsclerotherapy. The small stylus is ideal for treating around the nose, too.
 All kinds of redness can be treated such as threadveins, spider web like veins, cherry lesions, telangectasia, Cambell de Morgan spots.
it can also be used on skin bumps, milia, flat wart, fat particles, pigmentatory lesions such as age spots and sun spots.

Juvederm Vycross Range

22/03/2016 at 08:57:04 | by Dr Alison Duncan
Allergan have added to their range of Juvederm with a Vycross spectrum which really is a spectacular innovation. The Vycross collection of hyaluronc acid dermal fillers includes
  1. Voluma, intended to restore volume for the face, for example in temples, mid face region, chin and jaw
  2. Volift for treatment of deep skin depressions, face contouring and volume restoration to correct facial deformities,Moulmein loss in the cheeks, chin and lower face
  3. Volbella to treat any fine lines and medium sized skin depressions; enhancement of putting of the lips to correct structural defects such as asymmetry, contour deformities and volume loss.
Volume loss is a fundamental component of facial ageing. Contributing factors include fat redistribution, skeletal remodelling and other changes in tissue composition. Hyaluronc acid fillers are an establishes means of addressing volume loss, correcting contour defeats and providing support and structure to the face.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural polysaccharide polymer present in the human dermis. Due to its chemical structure, it is highly water soluble and will readily dissolve to form a viscous clear liquid. The hyaluronic acid in fillers is stabilised to increase longevity, as uncross linked hyaluronic acid will stay in the skin only for a few days. Structurally, hyaluronic acid fillers are similar to native tissue, providing excellent biocompatibility and good tissue integration.
Vycross technology is a mix of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, combined with a cross linking process which results in an efficiently and tightly cross linked gel. This tight hyaluronic acid network results in:
Greater resistance to degradation, delivering long-lasting duration (12-18 months
Minimal gel expansion due to low water uptake coiled with lots w hyaluronic acid concentration 
This new version ethnology allows for repositioning tissues, and strengthening muscle pull to result in a liquid facelift , without looking done or bulky.
