Happy New Ear
Ears age just like any other part of the face or body, mainly through the natural ageing process and constant exposure to the sun. Also, as collagen and elasticity decreases we lose volume in our earlobes and as the fat disappears they become elongated and saggy with fine wrinkling on the surface. Women who wear heavy earrings are particularly at risk because the weight pulls the ear downwards and stretches the skin even further and can leave extra large pierced holes. But ear reshaping can make pierced holes smaller and give the ears a lift. Two treatments usually required, the first uses laser to reshape the lobes and when they are healed, around three months later, a second session can plump the lobes using a filler. Diamond studs an optional extra!
Ear shaping two treatments – from £900
The Pick me up facial package
The laser facial has also been on the increase and Lumecca, is the newest IPL rejuvenation system which gives a boost to collagen whilst targeting broken capillaries, age spots and sun damage. Great for giving dull winter skin a radiant glow. Four sessions will restore a more youthful appearance. An add on Botox treatment at the end of the course will then zap lines leaving you look years younger.
