Problem: Crinkly Cleavage
Instant Fix The Cleavage Booster
A well-nourished smooth and polished décolleté is a must if you ‘re planning to wear a plunging neckline.
What happens A combination treatment to rejuvenate and repair the skin. First we use Nano peptide Mesotherapy, the latest groundbreaking treatment to rejuvenate a crinkly cleavage. A series of injections containing active ingredients and peptides are place around the cleavage area – you’ll see smoother skin within a few days but for best results a course of three weekly sessions may be needed. This is followed by an intense cleavage facial treatment beginning with a fruit acid exfoliating treatment to remove dead skin cells followed by a nourishing mask to stimulate skin cells and increase the blood flow leaving you with a divine décolletage.

THIS WEEK AT THE CLINIC
At 46, Amy James from Bexhill, Sussex thought spots were something her teenage daughter suffered from but earlier this year she developed acne for the first time. According to the latest statistics around 52 per cent of women over the age of 33 have some form of acne with about 15 per cent getting their first serious attack in their forties. It is caused by hormonal imbalances or sensitivity to the male hormone and can also sometimes occur as a result of stress or the onset of the menopause. Every case of acne is different which is why it is important to see an expert for advice. We advised Amy to start using products by Jan Marini with Glycolic acid, it is an alpha hydroxy acid that is derived from sugar cane. We combined it with a 10% Benzoyl Peroxide at night time and then after the skin is prepared with the products two weeks to start a course of six glycolic peels. These are a mild peel that allow you to carry on with everyday life without flaking or red skin. We also suggested taking Herbal Glo, its a herbal capsule that helps with all skin conditions, I actually take it myself everyday to help with general ageing. £30 for a months supply.

Problem Scrawny hands
Instant Fix: The Hand Plumper
Hands are the biggest age-giveaway because as we get older we lose the fat on the back of the hands so veins and wrinkles become more prominent.
We use ELLANSÉ because it uses the body’s natural response to stimulate the body’s own collagen restoring volume and a fresh, youthful look lasting up to 12 months.
What happens: Injections of Ellanse filler will instantly plump up the skin and make the hands look younger. Local anesthetic cream is applied, and then the filler is injected into the back of the hands. Hands could be red for a couple of hours afterwards. Effects should last up to 12 months

PROBLEM Thin lips
Treatment Cinderella Pout
If you want plumper lips to pucker up under the mistletoe then this temporary treatment is ideal
What happens A dental block is given and then Saline – water containing salt – is injected into the lip line giving the lips an instant natural outline and a fuller pout – no danger of a trout pout as the effect will only last up to four days
Cost from £199
Problem Tired Sagging Face
Treatment Sprinkles Instant Face Lift
This new treatment gives a relaxed and lifted look with no downtime.
What happens A fraction of the usual amount of Botox is injected all over the skin rather than targeting specific areas, which gives a fresher more relaxed look and, guaranteed, no frozen faces!
Costs from £199
Problem Dull, Tired, Ageing skin
Treatment Laser Facial
Improve skin tone and give skin a red carpet glow
What happens. Lumecca, the newest IPL rejuvenation system gives a boost to collagen whilst targeting broken capillaries and sun damage, and will also help clear age spots and improve skin tone. An intense pulsed light targets the skin on the face and décolletage which releases energy into the skin which then stimulates regeneration of the cells, and an increase in collagen. You’ll see instant results after one treatment but for longer lasting results a course of three to six treatments, spaced at least ten days apart is recommended. It is vital that you use SPF 30 after the treatment to protect the new skin.
Cost from £250
Problem A Shoddy Body!
Treatment Body Peel
When you are in need of a serious body boost, this is probably one of the most luxurious treatments that you can have and great for giving you an instant all over glow.
What is it Body chemical peels are usually a combination of glycolic acid and other AHA’s. The purpose of a body chemical peel is to remove dead skin and improve the texture and surface appearance of the body skin. Many body chemical peels are done for brides a few days before their wedding, and the A-list love to have one before a red carpet event.
Firstly you are asked to shower using an exfoliating wash, and then you dry off thoroughly. A prepping solution is applied first to ‘degrease’ the skin. Then the peel will be applied to each body area including arms, chest and midriff, back and legs, the peel solution is left on for up to 10 minutes and then removed with tepid water. A moisturiser is applied and sunscreen to any body parts exposed to daylight.
Cost from £200
Problem Tired baggy eyes
Give your eyes an instant lift
What happens – Pellevé delivers radio frequency energy to the skin via a special hand-held device. This stimulates collagen production and gives an instant lift as well as softening lines around the eye area. You’ll see results immediately but a course of two to three fortnightly treatments will make sure results last longer.
