Juvederm Voluma

13/04/2016 at 15:37:34 | by Dr Alison Duncan
Voluma is the ideal Juvederm dermal filler for volumising the cheeks, and also providing a subtle lift to the mid face. It lasts 15 months or so, and is used for deep injections, with minimal bruising , particularly when a cannula is used.



Botox

24/03/2016 at 09:48:27 | by Dr Alison Duncan
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. 



Treating sagging eyelids with PLEXR

08/02/2016 at 13:30:12 | by Dr Alison Duncan
The eye area is a popular area for discontent, starting with dark shadows, crows feet, and then lines and sagging eyelids, never mind eyebags!
 
Botox is great for controlling crows feet, collagen induction treatments help dark shadows, thin skin, and fine lines. But when you find, you can pull your eyelid, easily, between finger and thumb, you'll be wondering if you should have surgery. If you find your eyeliner smudges on your brow, you will be considering something to tighten the skin. This is where PLEXR comes in.
 
Plexr is a non- invasive treatment that uses ionisation of gases in the air, forming plasma. This creates a small electrical arc to treat problem areas on the body. Small 500 micron spots made with PLEXR shrink excess skin, visibly  tightening as the treatment is happening.
 
This is a non- invasive therapy; no cutting or bleeding; just tiny little scabs for 3-5 days that can immediately be covered by makeup
As with all treatments for skin, more than one treatment will be needed ( on average 2-3 treatments) and at least 6 weeks rest between them. It is safe for all skin types.
 
Plexr is a major advance in eye treatments, providing a non invasive alternative to surgical blepharoplasty, at the fraction of the cost.
 
it can be used for smile lines around the eyes, sagging eyelids, lines extending from eyes to cheeks, skin tags and xanthelasmata.
 
look at www.fusiongt.co.uk for more information, before and after photos and videos of procedures being performed. Click on Soft Surgery System and choose PLEXR on the menu.
 
Cost: R and L upper and lower lids £500
Upper or lower lids £350
