As seen in – VOWS & VENUES

From puppet facelifts to non invasive jawline snatching – one London cosmetic doctor has revealed three 2020 beauty trends that are helping brides look and feel sensational for their upcoming nuptials.

According to Dr Awais Qureshi, owner of Elixir Cosmetics based in North London, 2020 is set to be the year Brit brides ditch surgery in favour of quicker treatments designed to lift, plump and smooth skin ahead of the big day.

According to the skin rejuvenation expert the focus of brides to be has moved to pleasant ‘lunchtime’ treatments with little to no downtime, to complement the increasingly busy lives of the women getting hitched.

The demand for immediate results with long term benefits means the cosmetic doctor is certain cosmetic surgery will see further decline, while non invasive treatments including energy-assisted solutions will hit an all time high.

The cosmetic doctor says: “The general feeling within the industry is that 2020 will see a further rise in non surgical ‘tweakments’ when it comes to skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing, especially with modern brides.

“I think many savvier patients see cosmetic surgery as an unnecessary and outdated option, and most adopt a less is more approach when preparing for a weddingthese days.”

Dr Awais Qureshi says ‘puppet facelifts’ – otherwise known as thread lifts – are leading the way in 2020, and are especially popular with brides seeking a lifted, rejuvenated appearance but without the surgery and downtime.Dr Qureshi on Wedding beauty trends for 2020 brides

“Patients looking for an alternative to the mini facelift are now more commonly considering skin rejuvenation in the form of thread lift treatments combined with bespoke injectables to avoid surgery. This will continue in 2020,” says Dr Qureshi.

“Unlike invasive surgery to lift the skin and muscles of the face, the non surgical technique uses collagen-boosting strings to provide the anti-ageing solution they’ve been looking for. Add in the volumising effects of advanced dermal fillers and you’ve got the visual effect of a facelift without having to undergo a risky procedure.”

The rejuvenating effects of thread lifts kick in after 1-2 months showing a better skin texture, firmer and smoother skin. This type of treatment starts at around £1,500.

Moving on from makeup contouring, the rise in brides asking for a ‘snatched jawline’ to rival their celebrity idols is set to continue. Dr Awais Qureshi says:

“We’ve seen a shift in enquiries recently, with women requesting more information about non surgical jaw refinement treatments and less about things like cheek fillers, which were massively popular last year.”

“We call this a snatched jawline – where the jaw looks quite angular and noticeably contoured. It’s possible to achieve with fillers. The result is a slimmer jawline and a softer “heart-shaped” face overall,” concludes Dr Qureshi.

Dr Qureshi on Wedding beauty trends for 2020 bridesTreatment takes around 45 minutes and the results can last anywhere between 12-18 months before ‘top up’ treatment is required. Prices start from around £300.

Finally, the skin expert says the more unusual treatment to watch out for is platelet rich plasma therapy. While health experts have known about the benefits of PRPT for years, the treatment has been reinvented and improved for the cosmetic market.

Coined ‘plasma plumping’, Dr Qureshi says the value in combining PRPT methods with other skin rejuvenation treatments means this is set to be a breakthrough treatment for 2020 brideslooking for a natural looking boost to skin radiance.

“Women are increasingly happy to try more ‘out-there’ cosmetic treatments, providing they’re still non surgical, ahead of a big event. Plasma plumping combines PRPT (where blood is taken, infused with skin boosting ingredients and re-injected) with hydrating injections or collagen boosting facials.

“Trust me, this will be big news in coming months because as well as improving skin’s health it actively kick starts collagen production. It’s not cheap at over £1,500 but the results are remarkable,” Dr Qureshi says.

Woman & Home

With 2019 drawing to a close a brand new year on the horizon, so are tonnes more beauty and cosmetic trends.

While for years the seemingly best way to achieve the top standards in the world of looking good was to go under the knife for a painful procedure, things are different these days.

According to some of the UK’s top industry professionals, 2020 is set to be the year Brits ditch surgery in favour of quicker (albeit slightly bizarre) treatments designed to lift, plump and smooth.

When it comes to keeping aging at bay, nourishing skin and revamping the face, a surge in non-surgical treatments is taking place, with invasive surgery getting kicked to the kerb, according to Dr Awais Qureshi, from Elixir Cosmetics in London.

What to expect during a skin rejuvenation treatment

WRINKLEREDUCTIONTREATMENTS

Skin rejuvenation treatment at Elixir Cosmetics and the importance of consultation

Before undergoing any form of non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment in London it’s important to know what to expect from a cosmetic consultation. At Elixir Cosmetics Clinic, we appreciate it can be daunting to undergo anti-ageing treatment – but it needn’t be.

Whether you decide to rejuvenate your skin with platelet rich plasma therapy, or you want to have your lines and wrinkles reduced with one of the variety of anti-ageing injectables on offer, the aesthetics team at Elixir Cosmtics Clinic will be on hand so you’re fully aware of what to expect from your consultation – and the subsequent skin rejuvenation treatment treatments you undergo.

Is this anti-ageing treatment right for you?

To understand what to expect from your anti-ageing treatment consultation, it’s helpful to do a little research prior to both deciding on your treatment, and booking the appointment with the clinic.

It’s good to have an idea of what you believe your problem area/s to be, and to have a rough idea of what the type of treatment you want will cost. Is it affordable? Will it improve your self-esteem?

During the consultation, Dr. Q – our cosmetic doctor – will take on board your concerns and your wishes, and then tailor a skin rejuvenation treatment plan to address your needs.

This may include offering a different form of treatment from what you initially expected (e.g. you may require dermal fillers to improve facial volume, rather than muscle relaxing injections which will only reduce new lines from forming) or a combination of several non-surgical anti-ageing facial rejuvenation treatments to get the best result.

Ask questions and take the time to know your anti-ageing options

Don’t be afraid to ask questions or to see examples of previous skin rejuvenation treatment performed within the clinic. If you want to know how many years your chosen cosmetic doctor has been performing this treatment just ask!

If you’re feeling confused or worried about any part of the skin rejuvenation treatment make sure you speak up.  The consultation is not just about meeting your doctor, it’s about your happiness in the long term.

Recovery and results

Don’t forget to ask about the recovery times, as you’ll need to factor this into your decision making process. Perhaps explain why you are opting for skin rejuvenation treatment to allow your cosmetic expert to tailor your treatment plan further.

Remember to ask about the results in advance; how long will they last; will you need top-up treatments to maintain the look.

For example, muscle relaxing injections are great at keeping lines and wrinkles at bay as a skin rejuvenation treatment, but if you want to maintain the look it’s not a one-off process. You’ll require repeat treatments every 4-6 months. This can be costly over time, but its semi-permanent nature also means if you dislike the results you can opt to stop treatment.

Risks and rewards

Why not ask about the risks and the rewards of dermal fillers or chemical skin peel treatment? Non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments, for example, are simple, quick and relatively low risk, but as with all cosmetic treatments there are some risks and side-effects you should take into consideration.

Always ask your cosmetic doctor in London about the associated risks with your chosen skin rejuvenation treatment and go away to think it over, and always go with your gut instinct. If you don’t feel the skin rejuvenation treatment is right for you after all post consultation you aren’t obliged to undergo it.

Your safety and happiness is the most important thing.

What can muscle relaxing injections offer you?

Muscle relaxing injections for fine line and wrinkle reduction

Many clients visit Elixir Cosmetics in London seeking muscle relaxing injections, but there is often some confusion as to what these clever injectable anti-ageing treatments can really offer.

Unlike dermal fillers and volumisers – which are forms of anti-ageing injectable treatment designed to plump the skin and fill creases in the skin – muscle relaxing injections are used to freeze existing lines, as well as reducing new wrinkles from forming.

Commonly – but incorrectly – called Botox® (which is actually a brand of muscle relaxing injection product, rather than a treatment) muscle relaxing injections are non-surgical and widely available. At Elixir Cosmetics we offer Botox Cosmetic as our wrinkle relaxing injectable of choice.

What are the benefits of muscle relaxing injections specifically?

  • Non-invasive (no surgery is required)
  • Painless when used with a topical anaesthetic
  • No downtime required; you can head straight back to work
  • Results last 6-9 months
  • There are very few risks or side effects associated with muscle relaxing injections
  • Treatment time is quick

Unlike dermal fillers, wrinkle reduction injections do not fill or plump the skin; they are not used for volume restoration, nor can they be used to augment the lips or nose in other aesthetic treatments. However, unique to muscle relaxing injections is the host of other cosmetic and medical uses for the product.

Other uses for Botox® Cosmetic

Did you know that the same substance used to freeze facial muscles resulting in the reduction of new wrinkles forming can also be used to relieve excessive sweating? Injected in to the hands or armpits, these injections can prevent embarrassing conditions such as excessive sweating in just one treatment.

Versatile to say the least, muscle relaxing injections can also be used for a variety of medical reasons, making them one of the most widely accepted methods of treatment by both medical and aesthetic experts alike.

Where to go for the best muscle relaxing injections

Dr Qureshi offers muscle relaxing injections to male and female clients from across London. A full consultation is required prior to treatment to ensure clients have a full understanding of what this form of anti-ageing injectable can achieve, as well as the risks and complications associated with it.

Generally, this is considered a very safe and reliable form of anti-ageing skin rejuvenation, however, it is still a medical treatment and the correct precautions should be made.

Book a consultation

Book your consultation today and meet Dr Qureshi and the team at North London’s best cosmetic clinic for wrinkle relaxing injections and dermal filler treatments.

As well as injectables including alternatives to Botox, the clinic also offers a full range of non-surgical anti-ageing skin rejuvenation treatments designed to improve the skin on the inside as well as the outside.

We take new clients from across London and cities across the UK seeking a personalised, bespoke treatment plan. Call the clinic on 0208 952 6918 for more information or visit our treatment pages for in depth treatment details.

 

What can lip augmentation treatments offer you?

Discover the benefits of lip augmentation treatments

We are asked more and more about lip augmentation treatments. Full lips are universally considered a sign of femininity and beauty for many people, and the media is full of images of celebrities sporting plump pouts.

But perhaps surprisingly, full lips are not as common as you may think, leaving many patients – most notably women – looking for ways to boost their lips without surgery.

So what is out there to help patients who are not blessed with naturally voluminous lips? The answer may just lie in non-surgical lip augmentation, available at Elixir Cosmetics

What are lip augmentation treatments and why are they so popular?

No non-surgical treatment has seen more of surge in popularity this last year than lip augmentation. A cosmetic procedure that allows patients to enhance and contour the look of their lips in order to create a fuller and more shapely lip, non-surgical lip augmentation treatments use dermal fillers to improve the look of volume to the area.

Both the top and bottom lip can be augmented, with the overall goal of making the lips look balanced.

Lp augmentation treatments are non-surgical procedures that involve fillers being injected into the lips in order to plump and even fill in any fine lines in the mouth area that a patient may have noticed as a result of ageing.

Thanks to a range of world famous faces undergoing this form of cosmetic treatment the popularity of lip augmentation treatments using fillers has sky rocketed. Simple and quick to perform (providing you choose an expert) with results lasting up to 18 months, it’s easy to see why the non-surgical treatment is on the up.

What is involved in lip augmentation treatments?

Dermal fillers are used during lip enhancement treatments to improve volume. These versatile injectables essentially plump up the area they are injected in to, but there are some more natural-looking solutions than others.

The type of dermal filler used during your lip augmentation will be explained during your consultation. Which type of dermal filler is the best re size and shape will depend on your skin type, lifestyle, age and personal preference.

Is lip augmentation safe?

We’ve all seen some of the horror stories in the media when it comes to lip fillers, but like any cosmetic treatment lip augmentation treatments in the right hands are a very safe treatment with results that are pleasing to the patient.

Like any cosmetic procedure, lip augmentation comes with its own set of potential risks and side-effects that should be fully understood and carefully considered before the decision to undergo treatment is made. Side effects are rare but possible, and it’s vital you’re aware of them before undergoing any treatment – this goes for all cosmetic treatments, of course.

Booking your consultation

Book you consultation with Dr Q to discover how lip augmentation using dermal fillers could improve your self-esteem. A consultation allows you to find out more about the treatment, as well as the risks and safety information you must consider prior to undergoing any form of non-surgical intervention.

Safety is key and we will listen to your concerns and offer you the most effective and safe treatment plan suitable for your needs. Check out the treatment pages for a full guide to the treatments currently available.

As we turn from winter to spring, this is an ideal time to overhaul your look, and lip augmentation treatments could provide the spring in your step you’re looking for this year.

Top uses for dermal filler treatment

Popular uses for dermal filler treatment in London

Injectable treatments have a variety of uses, but none are more versatile than dermal filler treatment in London. With numerous benefits and used as part of various anti-ageing and non-surgical augmentation treatments, dermal fillers can provide clients with many options.

One of the most popular injectable treatments in the UK, Elixir Cosmetics offers dermal fillers as part of anti-ageing overhaul, and even for the augmentation of the lips, nose and cheeks.

Used to fill lines and wrinkles, or as part of a reshaping or volumisation treatment, dermal fillers are flexible, versatile and adaptable.

What are dermal fillers?

Made of a hyaluronic acid, facial fillers contain a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that contributes to volume and hydration.

Ideal for patients of either sex, dermal fillers are so much more than an anti-ageing treatment. Non-surgical augmentations can provide patients with soft, natural results with no surgery is needed.

Popular with celebs, fillers are easy to administer with short treatment times and no downtime needed. They’re ideal for the busy lifestyles we all have now. So what can dermal fillers do for you?

Reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles

Dermal fillers are primarily used as a form of anti-ageing treatment, with millions of patients each year opting for these injectables as a way to smooth out lines and fill wrinkles.

Effective and offering results lasting from 6-18 months, dermal fillers add volume to the skin through tiny injections; smoothing facial folds and wrinkles in areas around the mouth and eyes.

Plumping the lips

Thanks to their volumising nature, dermal fillers can be used to augment the lips. Eradicating the need for implants or fat injections, fillers can provide natural volume to the upper lip, improving the shape and size to improve or restore facial harmony.

Cheek volumisation

For many patients, volumising dermal fillers have been used instead of silicone implants to improve the shape and volume of the cheeks. Injected to boost the roundness of the cheekbone area, dermal fillers can give your face a youthful volumised look.

Nose reshaping

Dermal fillers are so versatile they can also be used to reshape areas of the face, including the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery can be invasive, painful and costly, but a non-surgical nose job using dermal fillers can make small improvements to the shape of the nose without the need for surgery.

Choosing dermal filler treatment

Results of skin rejuvenation treatments such as dermal fillers are not permanent, so ‘top up’ treatments would be required to maintain the results. The cosmetic experts at the aesthetics clinic can explain more on the benefits of injectable anti-ageing at your consultation.

Dermal fillers have many positives associated with them for clients. They are an incredibly flexible cosmetic treatment that can work extremely well in combination with many other cosmetic treatments and procedures.

Rise of lip augmentation treatments

The rise of lip augmentation in London and beyond

When it comes cosmetic treatments to improve the aesthetics of the face, the continuing rise of lip augmentation in London remains a clear focus. Not only for Elixir Cosmetics clients but also in the media.

Thanks to the continued coverage in the mainstream press UK and across the world, our clients are more aware than ever that celebrities and well-known faces from the entertainment industry are undergoing cosmetic treatments to improve the natural size or shape of the lips.

On top of this, research from RealSelf revealed millennial women are now leading the way when it comes to non-surgical treatments, including lip augmentation with over 6 per cent of all online enquires via the trusted site being for women aged 18-34 in UK and US.

Other popular and most searched non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments included muscle relaxing injections and dermal fillers for the cheeks.

The celebrity effect

It’s rare a day goes by where at least one of the online media outlets feature an article on lip augmentation – whether that is because of a recognised person, or as part of an advanced beauty feature.

Without doubt it’s been model (and equally famous Kim Kardashian-West’s baby sister) Kylie Jenner who has put lip augmentation treatments on the map. TV star Jenner has openly admitted to undergoing a non-surgical lip augmentation – using fillers – in order to change the shape of her size, as well as plump the natural volume of both the upper and lower lips.

Considering lip augmentation treatments

Whilst seemingly receiving daily commendations from the world’s elite, and women’s magazines and daily newspapers inundated with features and articles about lip augmentation treatments, this form of cosmetic treatment should not be undertaken lightly or simply because a celebrity has endorsed it.

This form of cosmetic treatment – whether it is to improve the signs of lip ageing or volumise the lips – should be only undertaken after a full consultation with a medical practitioner like Dr Qureshi who understands the risks as well as the rewards of your chosen cosmetic treatment.

Lip fillers remain a popular, however often trivialised, form of cosmetic treatment, and it’s important to remember that like any aesthetic treatment cosmetic procedures to alter the shape or size of the lips, it should be considered medical in nature. This means lip englarments, using dermal fillers, should be carried out by a fully qualified and experienced cosmetic doctor or trained medical professional, such as Dr Qureshi.

Benefits of lip augmentation

Lip augmentation with dermal filler is not ever-lasting and clients will need top up treatments to maintain the results. When it comes to choosing an expert for lip augmentation in London, it’s imperative you seek the advice and services of an expert who has the skills and training to perform the treatment you require.

A full cosmetic consultation is required before any lip enlargement can occur. For more information on lip augmentation procedures book a consultation. You can find more information on non-surgical lip fillers via Elixir Cosmetics treatment pages.

Refining skin quality with anti ageing treatments

We can help you improve your skin quality with anti-ageing treatments

Did you know anti-ageing treatments in London can do more than just reduce lines and wrinkles on the face?

At Elixir Cosmetics, Dr Qureshi and the team of cosmetic doctors at the North London aesthetics clinic offer a wide range of non-surgical anti-ageing treatments that can improve the health and appearance of your skin.

The signs of ageing go way beyond simple lines and wrinkles; for many clients’ skin tone and texture, as well as the quality of the skin can be a concern. Treatments can vary between patients, and what will be suitable for one may not work for another, but generally there are some widely used anti-ageing skin rejuvenation treatments that offer universally impressive results.

Chemical skin peels

Chemical skin peels are a form of anti-ageing treatment designed to not only revive the quality of the skin, but also reduce lines and wrinkles in some cases. Depending on which type of chemical skin peel is used, clients can expect to see their skin looking and feeling more refreshed.

Superficial skin peels are able to rejuvenate the dermis in a gentler fashion; as HA is applied the top layer of skin the upper layer is damaged in a controlled way, leaving behind revived texture and tone. Deeper chemical skin peels on the other hand are more invasive, and will require a few weeks of recovery time as the controlled damage is deeper.

Clients report reduce wrinkles, brighter looking skin, and a rejuvenated over appearance to the face. We use the ZO Peel range – ask us for more information.

Skincare

Cosmeceutical skin care can also provide rejuvenated skin health, as the medical-grade ingredients are designed to work on a much deeper level than anything you’ll find on the shelves of your local beauty shop. These are tailored specifically to your skin type, and what you hope to achieve, so you can be sure a bespoke and entirely individual skin care system designed around your needs.

Injectable skin rejuvenation

Other popular skin rejuvenation treatments include dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxing injections, although these are primarily used to treat volume loss and wrinkles, rather than skin health. If you wish to find out more and injectable anti-ageing treatments for lines such as crows feet around the eyes, it’s a good idea to book a consultation. We also offer Profhilo treatments for facial rejuvenation.

Where to undergo anti-ageing treatments

We welcome new patients who are concerned by the condition of their skin and wish to improve its overall tone and quality with anti-ageing treatments. We also offer skin rejuvenation treatments such as microdermabrasion and PDO thread lifts if required.

Book a consultation with Dr Qureshi at Elixir Cosmetics. An expert in skin health and anti-ageing, he will tailor a non-invasive treatment plan to your needs, reducing ageing signs and improving the overall health and appearance of your skin on the whole.

Dr Qureshi is experienced in treating clients with non-surgical anti-ageing treatments and facial rejuvenation, including muscle relaxing injections, dermal fillers and skin peels. Wrinkle relaxing injections, for example, provide outstanding rejuvenation and anti-ageing treatment results without the pain and downtime associated with surgical procedures.

Reduce hollowness with anti ageing treatments

Improve hollowness with anti ageing treatments in North London

As we age the cheeks can begin to look sunken or hollow, leaving patients feeling older than their years, but anti ageing treatments in North London can help.

Volume loss is not uncommon, as the body’s natural collagen production slows as we age, but there are non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments available which can help to plump and volumise the cheeks.

At Elixir Cosmetics, we offer several forms of non-surgical anti-ageing treatment to improve facial volume, particularly in the mid face.

Why go non surgical?

Unlike surgical alternatives such as the traditional facelift, safe anti-ageing treatments such as dermal fillers or volumisers can improve cheeks that look sunken without invasive procedures that require substantial recovery time.

Skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing cosmetic treatments are non-invasive and do not require surgery. Increasingly popular with both male and female clients, these non-surgical aesthetic treatments in London are available for a variety of ageing concerns. Although, volumising the cheeks and midface is a highly sought after treatment thanks to media exposure and celebrities undergoing facial rejuvenation treatment for this area of the face.

Why have treatments?

Ageing around the mid face can be upsetting for patients, so we’re delighted to be able to offer several forms of facial rejuvenation treatment here at Elixir Cosmetics.

Using quick anti-ageing treatments is a great way to transform the look of sunken cheeks or hollow-looking areas of the face, and the most popular are volumising dermal fillers and non-surgical facelift treatment using PDO threads.

Have you heard of PRPT?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is one of the newest forms of anti-ageing treatment for facial rejuvenation in the UK, with a fair amount of publicity in the press last year. Otherwise known as the vampire facelift or non-surgical facelift, this form of anti-ageing treatment uses your body’s own plasma to rejuvenate the skin of the mid-face leaving patients looking more youthful.

Encouraging new collagen to form, PRPT helps the skin and tissue appear more plump and firm. This form of anti-ageing treatment takes around 60 minutes.

Other options

Alternatively, patients can consider anti-ageing treatments such as dermal fillers, which are injectable treatments offering volumisation of the treatment area. Using hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers can help to boost the fullness of the cheeks and help to reduce the hollow look that you may find is ageing you.

The great thing about anti-ageing treatments such as platelet rich plasma therapy and dermal fillers, is that they can be combined to form a full-circle result – volumising and firming the mid-face and cheeks.

A full consultation is required to determine which of these forms of anti-ageing treatment are suitable, and we will also offer a full breakdown of what the treatments involve.

Why choose anti-ageing treatments at our clinic

We’re one of North London’s top cosmetic clinics, offering both skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing treatments as well as anti-ageing treatments such as dermal fillers, platelet rich plasma therapy, wrinkle reduction injections and skin peels to clients from across the city.

PDO thread lift treatments in London

WRINKLEREDUCTIONTREATMENTS

Choosing PDO thread lift treatments to rejuvenate the mid face

Did you know there are some non-surgical options such as PDO thread lift treatments in London that can help to turn back the clock?

At Elixir Cosmetics, Dr. Qureshi offers PDO thread lift treatments – sometimes known in the media as the puppet facelift – to lift the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging tissue in and around the cheeks.

Helping patients across London, Dr. Qureshi and the team here at our aesthetics clinic offer PDO thread lift treatments to rejuvenate the mid face.

How does a PDO thread lift treatment rejuvenate the mid face?

For some people, surgery is not something they wish to undertake, and they may be left feeling deflated about their ageing issues, wondering what else they could do. The answer could lie in the best non-surgical facelift: PDO threads.

Dr. Qureshi offers thread lift treatments – an excellent innovation which redefines the face and restores volume in just half an hour – as part of a non-invasive facial makeover. It uses threads to lift and support the mid-face without surgery.

Why does this work?

As we age, as well developing wrinkles, the face tends to lose youthful volume too, which can result in sagging skin that gives the face an aged appearance. The PDO thread lift treatments are the best non-surgical facelift options available to help rejuvenate the mid and lower face in record time.

The face also loses fat and collagen as we get older which means that it becomes more skeletal-looking with hollow sides and heaviness of cheeks. So while muscle relaxing injections (such as Botox Cosmetic) could prevent wrinkles from forming to some extent, the PDO thread lift treatment to rejuvenate the mid face can leave you with fuller, fresher, tighter and younger looking skin for up to 18 months.

It offers a discreet and immediate lifting effect by reshaping the treated area. Ideal for lifting sagging jowls and the mid and lower face, you can achieve fantastic results without surgery – and for a quarter of the price of a facelift.

What happens during the treatment?

  • PDO thread lift treatment to rejuvenate the mid face requires a small local anaesthetic.
  • Qureshi inserts a small suture using a needle that goes under the skin to a depth of about 3 to 5 millimetres.
  • After the suture has been inserted, Dr Qureshi reshapes the area by hand to obtain the desired lifting effect.
  • The non-inserted ends of the suture are then cut off, leaving no visible threads.
  • Multiple sutures may be applied depending on the patient and treated area.

Anti ageing treatments for the eye area

WRINKLEREDUCTIONTREATMENTS

Choosing the best anti ageing treatments for the eye area

Anti ageing treatments for the eye area are a great way to looking more youthful in time for the new year. You may be considering undergoing cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate the face, and anti ageing eye treatments are a great way to kick start 2020.

There are many non surgical anti-ageing treatments which can prove useful in reducing the appearance of fine lines around the eyes or smoothing wrinkles which may appear above or below the eye area.

Some of the most popular forms of non-surgical anti ageing treatments include dermal fillers, muscle relaxing injections and chemical skin peels.

At Elixir Cosmetic Clinic in London, anti ageing treatments for the eyes area are very popular. Depending on what ageing concern you are aiming to treat, you may wish to choose to undergo one or a combination of several anti-ageing treatments designed to improve the skin around the eyes.

A full consultation with cosmetic doctor Dr. Q is required before undergoing any type of nonsurgical cosmetic treatment, however these three anti-ageing treatments are usually universally considered appropriate (and useful more often than not) for the treatment of ageing around the eyes.

Muscle relaxing injections

Muscle relaxing injections offer a non-invasive solution to lines and wrinkles forming around the eyes. Rather than smoothing lines and wrinkles, muscle relaxing injections are designed to prevent new ageing lines and wrinkles from forming, improving the youthful appearance of the face.

This is one of the most popular forms of non surgical anti-ageing treatment in the UK today with celebrities and regular clients are like enjoying the versatility of this extremely popular skin rejuvenation treatment.

Dermal fillers

Like muscle relaxing injections dermal filler treatment is administered using an injectable solution, however facial fillers themselves are not designed to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming around the eyes, but smooth and reduce the appearance of existing ones.

There are many types of dermal fillers available and which one is most suitable for your needs is determined during a consultation with our cosmetic doctor.

Chemical skin peels

Chemical skin peels are a well-established form of non-surgical facial rejuvenation designs to not only smooth the appearance of wrinkles but also revitalise and freshen up the skin in the upper face area. Chemical skin peels are reliable and come in three different strengths depending on the level of skin rejuvenation required: superficial, medium, and deep.

Each of these three popular forms of facial rejuvenation treatment are classed as non-surgical anti-ageing solutions and can be combined together or used as single treatments depending on what ageing signs around the eyes the client wishes to improve.

Ask for more information

For more information about any of the treatments listed above, or for anti-ageing treatments to improve of the signs of ageing including hyper pigmentation, skin that has started to sag, or volume loss please contact Elixir Cosmetics Clinic and a member of the reception team will be happy to guide you.

 

 

Anti ageing treatments for lines and wrinkles in North London

The anti-ageing market is booming and with more choice than ever when it comes to facial rejuvenation treatments it’s no wonder that the landscape has become harder to navigate for newer clients who may be unfamiliar with the new choices available to them.

Dermal fillers

Widely considered one of the most popular forms of non-surgical anti-ageing treatment for lines and wrinkles in London, dermal fillers are injectable form of treatment which allow the cosmetic doctor to fill and smooth existing lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.

So diverse are fillers, they can even be used to augment the lips, providing volume which may be lost due to the ageing process, and even to reshape the nose as part of a nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure.

Muscle relaxing injections

Similar in nature to dermal fillers, muscle relaxing injections are injectable form of anti-ageing treatment for lines and wrinkles. Rather than being used to improve the appearance of existing ageing signs on the face, muscle relaxing injections are often used more as a preventative measure, to stop further lines and wrinkles from developing.

Popular with both male and female clients, muscle relaxing injections are now seen as the go to cosmetic treatment for many, and its reliable outcomes and natural looking results make it a desirable form of non-surgical anti-ageing treatment for lines and wrinkles.

Chemical skin peels

Unlike dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injections, chemical skin peels are not administered via an injectable source. Traditional chemical skin peels are used to rejuvenate the face by removing a layer of skin. There are various forms of peel available, and which form of chemical skin peel is most suitable to your needs can be determined during the consultation at the clinic.

Ideal for not only reducing the appearance of fine lines, chemical skin peels can also be used to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots, making it a popular form of non-surgical anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation treatment at the clinic.

Combining treatments for lines and wrinkles

In some cases, it may be suggested that a combination of non-surgical anti-ageing treatments is undertaken in order to get the best results possible. Skin rejuvenation treatments often work well when combined with another wrinkle reducing treatment; muscle relaxing injections can be combined with dermal fillers, for example, for more in-depth and well-rounded non-surgical anti-ageing treatment result.

Consultation and treatments for lines and wrinkles

We also offer PDO thread lifts, skin hydrating injections and other non surgical options. If you would like more information about any of the non-surgical anti-ageing treatments available please book a consultation via the reception team who will be happy to make you an appointment.

What can muscle relaxing injections offer you?

Muscle relaxing injections for fine line and wrinkle reduction

Many clients visit Elixir Cosmetics in London seeking muscle relaxing injections, but there is often some confusion as to what these clever injectable anti-ageing treatments can really offer.

Unlike dermal fillers and volumisers – which are forms of anti-ageing injectable treatment designed to plump the skin and fill creases in the skin – muscle relaxing injections are used to freeze existing lines, as well as reducing new wrinkles from forming.

Commonly – but incorrectly – called Botox (which is actually a brand of muscle relaxing injection product, rather than a treatment) muscle relaxing injections are non-surgical and widely available. At Elixir Cosmetics we offer Botox Cosmetic as our wrinkle relaxing injectable of choice.

What are the benefits of muscle relaxing injections specifically?

  • Non-invasive (no surgery is required)
  • Painless when used with a topical anaesthetic
  • No downtime required; you can head straight back to work
  • Results last 6-9 months
  • There are very few risks or side effects associated with muscle relaxing injections
  • Treatment time is quick

Unlike dermal fillers, wrinkle reduction injections do not fill or plump the skin; they are not used for volume restoration, nor can they be used to augment the lips or nose in other aesthetic treatments. However, unique to muscle relaxing injections is the host of other cosmetic and medical uses for the product.

Other uses for Botox Cosmetic

Did you know that the same substance used to freeze facial muscles resulting in the reduction of new wrinkles forming can also be used to relieve excessive sweating? Injected in to the hands or armpits, these injections can prevent embarrassing conditions such as excessive sweating in just one treatment.

Versatile to say the least, muscle relaxing injections can also be used for a variety of medical reasons, making them one of the most widely accepted methods of treatment by both medical and aesthetic experts alike.

Where to go for the best muscle relaxing injections

Dr Qureshi offers muscle relaxing injections to male and female clients from across London. A full consultation is required prior to treatment to ensure clients have a full understanding of what this form of anti-ageing injectable can achieve, as well as the risks and complications associated with it.

Generally, this is considered a very safe and reliable form of anti-ageing skin rejuvenation, however, it is still a medical treatment and the correct precautions should be made.

Rise of lip augmentation treatments

Rise of lip augmentation treatments

The rise of lip augmentation in London and beyond

When it comes cosmetic treatments to improve the aesthetics of the face, the continuing rise of lip augmentation in London remains a clear focus. Not only for Elixir Cosmetics clients but also in the media.

Thanks to the continued coverage in the mainstream press UK and across the world, our clients are more aware than ever that celebrities and well-known faces from the entertainment industry are undergoing cosmetic treatments to improve the natural size or shape of the lips.

On top of this, research from RealSelf revealed millennial women are now leading the way when it comes to non-surgical treatments, including lip augmentation with over 6 per cent of all online enquires via the trusted site being for women aged 18-34 in UK and US.

Other popular and most searched non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments included muscle relaxing injections and dermal fillers for the cheeks.

The celebrity effect

It’s rare a day goes by where at least one of the online media outlets feature an article on lip augmentation – whether that is because of a recognised person, or as part of an advanced beauty feature.

Without doubt it’s been model (and equally famous Kim Kardashian-West’s baby sister) Kylie Jenner who has put lip augmentation treatments on the map. TV star Jenner has openly admitted to undergoing a non-surgical lip augmentation – using fillers – in order to change the shape of her size, as well as plump the natural volume of both the upper and lower lips.

Considering lip augmentation treatments

Whilst seemingly receiving daily commendations from the world’s elite, and women’s magazines and daily newspapers inundated with features and articles about lip augmentation treatments, this form of cosmetic treatment should not be undertaken lightly or simply because a celebrity has endorsed it.

This form of cosmetic treatment – whether it is to improve the signs of lip ageing or volumise the lips – should be only undertaken after a full consultation with a medical practitioner like Dr Qureshi who understands the risks as well as the rewards of your chosen cosmetic treatment.

Lip fillers remain a popular, however often trivialised, form of cosmetic treatment, and it’s important to remember that like any aesthetic treatment cosmetic procedures to alter the shape or size of the lips, it should be considered medical in nature. This means lip englarments, using dermal fillers, should be carried out by a fully qualified and experienced cosmetic doctor or trained medical professional, such as Dr Qureshi.

Benefits of lip augmentation

Lip augmentation with dermal filler is not ever-lasting and clients will need top up treatments to maintain the results. When it comes to choosing an expert for lip augmentation in London, it’s imperative you seek the advice and services of an expert who has the skills and training to perform the treatment you require.

Book a consultation today

A full cosmetic consultation is required before any lip enlargement can occur. For more information on lip augmentation procedures book a consultation. You can find more information on non-surgical lip fillers via Elixir Cosmetics treatment pages.

Refining skin quality with anti ageing treatments

WRINKLEREDUCTIONTREATMENTS

Refining skin quality with anti ageing treatments

We can help you improve your skin quality with anti-ageing treatments

Did you know anti-ageing treatments in London can do more than just reduce lines and wrinkles on the face?

At Elixir Cosmetics, Dr Qureshi and the team of cosmetic doctors at the North London aesthetics clinic offer a wide range of non-surgical anti-ageing treatments that can improve the health and appearance of your skin.

The signs of ageing go way beyond simple lines and wrinkles; for many clients’ skin tone and texture, as well as the quality of the skin can be a concern. Treatments can vary between patients, and what will be suitable for one may not work for another, but generally there are some widely used anti-ageing skin rejuvenation treatments that offer universally impressive results.

Chemical skin peels

Chemical skin peels are a form of anti-ageing treatment designed to not only revive the quality of the skin, but also reduce lines and wrinkles in some cases. Depending on which type of chemical skin peel is used, clients can expect to see their skin looking and feeling more refreshed.

Superficial skin peels are able to rejuvenate the dermis in a gentler fashion; as HA is applied the top layer of skin the upper layer is damaged in a controlled way, leaving behind revived texture and tone. Deeper chemical skin peels on the other hand are more invasive, and will require a few weeks of recovery time as the controlled damage is deeper.

Clients report reduce wrinkles, brighter looking skin, and a rejuvenated over appearance to the face. We use the ZO Peel range – ask us for more information.

Skincare

Cosmeceutical skin care can also provide rejuvenated skin health, as the medical-grade ingredients are designed to work on a much deeper level than anything you’ll find on the shelves of your local beauty shop. These are tailored specifically to your skin type, and what you hope to achieve, so you can be sure a bespoke and entirely individual skin care system designed around your needs.

Injectable skin rejuvenation

Other popular skin rejuvenation treatments include dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxing injections, although these are primarily used to treat volume loss and wrinkles, rather than skin health. If you wish to find out more and injectable anti-ageing treatments for lines such as crows feet around the eyes, it’s a good idea to book a consultation. We also offer Profhilo treatments for facial rejuvenation.

Where to undergo anti-ageing treatments

PDO thread lift treatments in London

Choosing PDO thread lift treatments to rejuvenate the mid face

Did you know there are some non-surgical options such as PDO thread lift treatments in London that can help to turn back the clock?

At Elixir Cosmetics, Dr. Qureshi offers PDO thread lift treatments – sometimes known in the media as the puppet facelift – to lift the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging tissue in and around the cheeks.

Helping patients across London, Dr. Qureshi and the team here at our aesthetics clinic offer PDO thread lift treatments to rejuvenate the mid face.

How does a PDO thread lift treatment rejuvenate the mid face?

For some people, surgery is not something they wish to undertake, and they may be left feeling deflated about their ageing issues, wondering what else they could do. The answer could lie in the best non-surgical facelift: PDO threads.

Dr. Qureshi offers thread lift treatments – an excellent innovation which redefines the face and restores volume in just half an hour – as part of a non-invasive facial makeover. It uses threads to lift and support the mid-face without surgery.

Why does this work?

As we age, as well developing wrinkles, the face tends to lose youthful volume too, which can result in sagging skin that gives the face an aged appearance. The PDO thread lift treatments are the best non-surgical facelift options available to help rejuvenate the mid and lower face in record time.

The face also loses fat and collagen as we get older which means that it becomes more skeletal-looking with hollow sides and heaviness of cheeks. So while muscle relaxing injections (such as Botox Cosmetic) could prevent wrinkles from forming to some extent, the PDO thread lift treatment to rejuvenate the mid face can leave you with fuller, fresher, tighter and younger looking skin for up to 18 months.

It offers a discreet and immediate lifting effect by reshaping the treated area. Ideal for lifting sagging jowls and the mid and lower face, you can achieve fantastic results without surgery – and for a quarter of the price of a facelift.

What happens during the treatment?

  • PDO thread lift treatment to rejuvenate the mid face requires a small local anaesthetic.
  • Qureshi inserts a small suture using a needle that goes under the skin to a depth of about 3 to 5 millimetres.
  • After the suture has been inserted, Dr Qureshi reshapes the area by hand to obtain the desired lifting effect.
  • The non-inserted ends of the suture are then cut off, leaving no visible threads.
  • Multiple sutures may be applied depending on the patient and treated area.

What are the effects like?

The effects improve over time as new collagen forms and are natural looking. They last anywhere between 18-24 months depending on the extent of ageing and the condition of the skin. Your doctor will advise you upon a full consultation what PDO thread lift treatment to rejuvenate the mid face can realistically offer you.

Getting more information

PDO thread lift treatments can also be used in conjunction with injectable anti-ageing treatments including tear trough dermafiller and dermal fillers, making it a versatile anti-ageing treatment for men and women in their late thirties and beyond.

If you’d like more information on non-invasive anti-ageing treatments to rejuvenate the mid face, book a consultation with Dr. Qureshi at Elixir Cosmetics, serving patients from London and beyond.
