Three reasons why non-invasive body contouring triumphs surgical alternatives

When a significant amount of weight is lost. Whether through a surgical or a non-surgical weight reduction process. The skin and tissue that surround the body do not have the elasticity to respond to the reduced size, leaving the body looking deflated and out of shape.

For many people who strive to lose weight, this can be disheartening. Having worked to achieve their dream body or reach their optimum weight. Excess skin and tissue has left them feeling no less self-conscious.

That’s where body contouring comes in. A relatively new, quick and safe procedure. Body contouring is specifically designed to remove the excess skin and fat after weight loss. It can transform your body without having to undergo surgery. And the result is a more youthful appearance, with smoother, firmer contours.

Those who want to get rid of saddle bags but don’t wish to go under the knife. May consider non-invasive treatments instead, for the following three reasons.

Body contouring is safer than surgery

Unlike surgical treatments, such as traditional forms of liposuction. State-of-the-art body contouring machines can produce the same results, without the risks associated with cosmetic surgery.

Body contouring is a non-invasive and pain-free procedure. Which uses radio frequencies to achieve impressive results. The process will not cause scars, and patients will not be prone to infection after the procedure. In fact there are very few side effects at all.

Although huge steps have been made in the world of cosmetic surgery. Invasive treatments can still occasionally result in bigger problems, such as blot clots, bleeding problems and difficulty breathing in extreme cases.

If you are struggling to shift unwanted fat, yet reluctant to undergo surgery to achieve your dream body Body contouring may well be the treatment you’ve been looking for.

Body contouring is quicker than surgery

Body contouring is a simple walk in, walk out procedure. Clients leave with noticeable results on the same day. It is a quick and painless process, with immediately visible results.

Because body contouring is non-invasive. Patients enjoy a speedier recovery time than surgical treatments, with little to no downtime and minimal discomfort. You can show off your healthier, younger looking body in no time.

The quick and easy procedure can equally have a positive influence on the mind as well as the body. There is no ongoing pain, and it can quickly and significantly improve a patient’s self-esteem and confidence in their own body.

Body contouring is cheaper than surgery

Body contouring is better for both your body and your bank account. While the cost of cosmetic surgery is generally considered pretty steep, body contouring is widely considered the more affordable alternative.

The difference in cost between a surgical procedure and a non-invasive body contouring machine is vast. When you consider that the two treatments generally offer the same results. Add into the mix the speed and safety associated with non-invasive body contouring, and the choice is clear.

Its official: summer is over. As leaves turn brown. The evenings become darker, many may miss the heat on their skin and yearn for more time on the beach.

However, giving your skin a break from the sun is no bad thing. Many of us equate holidays with clear skin and a darker complexion. What’s actually happening under the surface isn’t quite so pretty.

Whilst the sun, sea and sand does have its health benefits. Your skin loses water and oil when it is not adequately protected, and many will experience blocked pores after too much sun exposure as well.

Dehydrated skin

Dehydrated skin, caused by too much exposure to the sun, will impact your skin’s elasticity. Increase the chance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sometimes this can take a while to show up, but sometimes it is immediately obvious.

We can burn or even peel if we don’t take the necessary precautions when out in the sun. Nature has its own remedy for burning or peeling; Aloe Vera is a natural healer. So using an Aloe based moisturiser may help to soothe skin and reduce any discomfort you experience after a day in the sun.

Thankfully, we now all know that it is imperative to use a SPF lotion in the sunshine. But there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to skincare. It’s really important that the sun cream you are using matches your skin type. The paler your skin the higher the SPF should be.

Now the summer is behind us, taking good care of your post-holiday skin has never been so important. As we enter cooler months and turn our heatings on. Many of us will find our skin drying out even more. Now is the time to ensure you’re moisturising your skin properly, and drinking plenty of water to keep it hydrated.

Dry skin

defy-time

Defy Time

Dry skin is different to dehydrated skin. In that it is caused by a lack of oil in the skin, as opposed to a lack of water. This can be exacerbated by exposing your skin to air conditioning, or by switching from a cold to a hot climate, and back again.

Once you’re home from your holiday, moisturising should become a daily ritual. It will not only help to correct oil levels in the skin, but will also lock in that tan. A moisturiser such as Defy Time will also help to keep wrinkles at bay by actually blocking neuromuscular contraction.

This pioneering cream includes Syn-ake. An anti-wrinkle peptide which mimics the paralysing effect of a peptide found in the venom of the Brazilian Templar Viper. Results are quick too. Clinical trials have shown wrinkles to be reduced by 52% and skin smoothness increased by 80% after just 28 days of use.

Blocked pores

Irritated skin can be caused by blocked pores. Which come about thanks to excess oil in the skin, lack of sleep or even particular types of suntan lotion.

Once back on home soil. Post-holiday blocked pores can be combated by using an effective cleanser which is gentle on the skin. Oxypeel Treatment Cream helps to regulate the skin’s oil and moisture balance and discourages microbial growth. It is particularly suitable for oily skin and can be used both as a day and night cream.

Your skin is something worth investing in. All too often people try to combat post-holiday skincare issues by using harsh chemicals. Which can actually cause bigger problems in the long-term.

Adopting a gentler, more organic skincare regime is the best way to care for your post-holiday skin. And the range of non-invasive treatments available at the Face and Body Clinic means you can do just that, without worrying about any negative side effects.

Zap your way to a beautiful body with Zerona Laser treatment

Zap your way to a beautiful body with Zerona Laser treatment

Love handles, saddle-bags – there are just some areas of the body that stubbornly refuse to go. No matter how well you eat or how much exercise you do.

The answer to a new, trimmer you takes just 40 minutes with Zerona laser treatment. Not only is it completely painless. It is so relaxing you can read a book or better still. Do absolutely nothing while getting the body you’ve always dreamed of.

Like anything else when it comes to looking great, it will involve a certain commitment from you. As you will need a total of six treatment every other day. These can easily be fitted into a lunch-hour or slotted into an appointment after work.

So how does it work?

The Zerona low level laser treatment stimulates the fat cells in the areas being targeted and liquefies the fat within it.  This then moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to the outside of the cell where it is then absorbed into the lymphatic system.

The result is millions of fat cells become smaller so that inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs but there is no damage to the cells as a result of the process.

We’ve all heard of liposuction and while it too works on removing fat cells. It is an invasive procedure. Using a hollow stainless steel tube called a cannula and a powerful vacuum. This means having some form of sedation either a local or general anaesthetic.

The benefit of Zerona laser treatment is that it is 100 per cent non invasive. A low level laser is applied externally to release the fat. It is pain free and needs no numbing agents, needles or downtime.

Shenaz Shariff who carries out the Zerona laser treatment. At the Face and Body Clinic in central London. She says that during the two weeks treatment period you can continue with your normal daily routine, but adds this important advice:

  • Stay hydrated – drink at least 8-10 glasses of water a day.
  • Walk at least 30 minutes a day and continue to follow a healthy eating and exercise regime.
  • Stop drinking alcohol and caffeine during the Zerona treatment.  Both of them interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it. That can affect the results you achieve so no bubbly to celebrate your new body. Until after you get the go ahead from your practitioner.

Shenaz warns: ‘The Zerona laser treatment isn’t something you should think about if you are pregnant. Equally if you have a pacemaker it may not be safe for you.  And if you suffer from diabetes or a thyroid problem then there’s a chance that it won’t work as effectively. As your metabolic system is already impaired.

‘It is always worth contacting me to discuss it. I will see if we can work out a treatment plan. A plan that is safe and effective for you, whatever health issues you may have’.

The types of people who have Zerona laser treatment usually fall into two distinct categories.

Those who follow a healthy diet and lifestyle and want to remove localised pockets of fat.  Or those who want to use Zerona to kick start their slimming efforts. Motivate them into adopting a better lifestyle in order to maintain a slimmer, healthier body.

If you are a new mum hoping to shed some of those additional pregnancy pounds that refuse to shift. Zerona laser treatment is an option. But should not be undertaken until at least 6 weeks. After you have given birth. Or until you have stopped breast feeding.

Using recommended guidelines. Zerona laser treatment has seen an average loss of 3.64 inches on the waist, hips and thighs during clinical trials. And by maintaining a healthy eating and exercise lifestyle, you can expect long-term results.

Shenaz says: ‘You can start additional Zerona laser treatments immediately. Following your last treatment and of course the more you have the cheaper a programme of therapies becomes.  It may be that you want to combine the Zerona with some of the other non-invasive treatments at The Face and Body Clinic. So it is always best if you come along for a consultation. And we can work out a plan that suits you’.

London Beauty Clinic enters the Twighlight Zone

London Beauty Clinic enters the Twighlight Zone.

London Beauty Clinic enters the Twighlight Zone.

London Beauty Clinic enters the Twighlight Zone.

With the craze for the Vampire Diaries came the introduction of a new facial therapy in top beauty clinics in London – the vampire facial.

To give it a more scientific name it is treatment using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Which involves taking a small amount of blood from your arm – a couple of dessert spoons is usually enough. Spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma which is the fluid part of the blood from the red and white blood cells.

The concentrated plasma which is rich in growth factors is then injected into the face.  These proteins help heal injured tissue and damaged skin by stimulating surrounding cells near the injection site. Allowing them to proliferate.

One of the key cells, fibroblast, is the one which creates collagen which gives skin its youthful appearance.  Unfortunately as we age, less and less collagen is produced causing wrinkles and fine lines to appear on your skin.

Some practitioners in beauty clinics around central London may combine it with dermal fillers. To plump up problem areas like the delicate area under the eye.

Tennis ace Rafael Nadal is among many athletes who are thought to have used the treatment which has been around for more than 20 years. As PRP accelerates the healing of wounds and burnt skin.

As you might expect from someone rarely out of the headlines. Kim Kardashian is a fan but so too are many British actresses including Anna Friel. According to reports of the latest trends in beauty clinics around London.

Shenaz Shariff a health and well-being expert who runs the Face and Body Clinic in London says ‘PRP can be used on the face around the eyes, mouth, nose, the décolletage and even the backs of your hands. It can take a few weeks to see the full effect of the treatment. But it will last up to a year maybe with a couple of top up treatments in between’.

There is minimal downtime although some patients may experience bruising, swelling or redness near the injection site. But this should go within a few days and to avoid infection no make-up or cream should be used for 8 hours after the PRP .

A popular alternative to the vampire therapy is the very successful Hialurox anti-ageing facial. Which is available at a highly respected London beauty clinic run by Shenaz Shariff.

Actress Tamzin Outhwaite is a delighted convert to the facial and admits. ‘After just one treatment I noticed a visible reduction in the appearance of fine lines around my eyes and mouth. What makes this facial even more special for me is that it is completely relaxing. I felt confident putting myself in Shenaz’s hands knowing what she was doing really would work’.

Hyaluronic acid which exists naturally in all of us. Encourages the hydration of the epidermis which is the surface layer of skin cell.    However the amount we produce diminishes with age and that means we lose the firm texture to our skin.

Shenaz’s relaxing London beauty clinic enables clients looking for a non-surgical procedure to get fantastic results to leave you looking younger for longer.

It will require multiple treatments over the course of a few months to enable the body to complete the restoration process but you will see a distinct change after the first day.

Shenaz and her team are happy to offer information and advice about this and other treatments available at her beauty clinic in London, which could be used in conjunction with the facial.

How many times have you see Hollywood A-listers with that permanently surprised look on their face after too much plastic surgery?

They may have got rid of the wrinkles and the bags under their eyes. Their skin looks anything but natural up close and the more surgery they have, the worse it’s going to get.

But it is possible to get rid of sagging skin around the jaw-line without resorting to debilitating general anaesthetics and the bruising after effects of surgery.

Shenaz Shariff is a health and beauty expert. Shenaz offers non-surgical jowl lifts at her London clinic by using radiofrequency therapy that can:

  • Contour facial skin
  • Reduce unwanted fat deposits
  • Firm and rejuvenate the skin
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

The Face and Body Clinic in central London was chosen exclusively to use this new Tripollar technology. Which has had fantastic results in non-surgical jowl lifts .

No matter how much you try and diet or exercise. There are just some areas of the face – particularly around the jaw-line and neck that need a little extra helping hand whether you are male or female.

The machine which is used to carry out the non-surgical jowl lifts is pain free.  It works by heating fibroplasts which produce collagen and elastin.  As they heat they contract and collagen strands are pulled closer having the immediate effect of tightening the skin.

At the same time fat cells are heated which accelerates the metabolism causing them to shrink. Giving tighter, younger looking, remodelled skin.

Shenaz admits: ‘I get a lot of people who come to me because they are sick of the broken promises of over the counter anti-ageing creams that cost a fortune but don’t actually work.  Understandably they are scared to have general anaesthetics, invasive surgery and harsh chemical treatments.

‘That is why I believe this non-surgical jowl lift which I can do at my Harley Street clinic is the ideal anti-ageing alternative. It works and gives my clients a natural looking younger skin’.

And if you like the non-surgical jowl lift, the therapy can be extended to help eliminate deep lines and wrinkles and give a total refined, youthful facial structure.

Dancer Chris Fedorov has spent a lifetime keeping his body in shape but once he was the wrong side of 40 he admits. The same couldn’t be said for his face.

‘To keep on dancing you often have to compete against people half your age. For me plastic surgery wasn’t the answer because I wanted a less invasive and more subtle approach.  And that’s exactly what I got with the help of Shenaz and her team who worked out a wonderful package of non-surgical treatments that were ideally tailored to my needs’.

Shenaz admits: ‘My clients have been so delighted by the effects of the non-surgical jowl lift. That they’ve wanted to enhance their faces even further and radiofrequency therapy enables very delicate areas of the face to be treated. Around the eyes and lips – without causing any pain or damage.

‘Non-surgical procedures like this are perfect for busy professionals of both sexes. Or for anyone who wants to get back a more sculpted look. That age is always going to try and take away from us’.

Shenaz can be contacted at The Face and Body Clinic in central London and offers consultations to clients. To ensure that they are embarking on the right treatments. Not just for now but for the future so that when it comes to guessing your age, people will be taking the years off.  Not adding them on.

Blood is key to battling the bulge

Blood is key to battling the bulge

Blood is key to battling the bulge

There’s nothing more disheartening than dieting religiously for weeks at a time, cutting out your favourite food and drink, and still only being able to shed a couple of pounds.

Blaming it on your metabolism sounds like a poor excuse but it really could be to blame. A simple blood test may be the answer to helping you successfully lose weight and keeping the slim-line figure that lifestyle and age may have shoved aside.

Metabolic balancing is a nutritional programme that can not only get rid of excess fat but lead to a general improvement in your health by re-setting your metabolism and hormone levels. Particularly insulin, in order to allow your body to reach its natural weight.

If your metabolism has become sluggish the knock on effect can be:

  • Weight gain around the mid rift
  • Rising blood sugar
  • Low energy
  • High blood pressure.

Metabolic balancing is the kick start it needs to get your body and weight control back on track. The key to its success a personal nutrition programme specific to your body chemistry and nutritional needs.

A simple blood test shows which foods are suited to you and this determines the eating plan you should follow.

Shenaz Shariff who works as a balance coach from her central London clinic says: ‘We have a tendancy to eat and drink all day long, snacking continually between meals. Even having a calorie rich coffee.

‘This constant feeding habit not only adds fat because of the excessive calorie intake but triggers a constant on switch in our bodies. Which leads to increased hormone levels, particularly insulin.

‘The result is weight gain and a metabolism that really doesn’t know what it should be doing anymore’.

Metabolic balancing as the name suggests brings some equilibrium to the hormones. Which allows fat loss, decreased fat storage and a body that can stay younger, longer.

Shenaz who runs the Face and Body Clinic in Harley Street will look at your lifestyle history and during her initial consultation record your measurements and take your blood samples. Which will be sent to Germany for analysis.

The results will then allow an expert balance coach such as Shenaz to work out an individual programme.

Key features of metabolic balancing include leaving a five-hour gap between meals and not mixing protein sources.  There is also no fat allowed in the first two weeks.

The plan re-establishes your nightime fat burning process (lipolysis) which re-starts your metabolism. So that you really can sleep your weight off.

The amount of weight loss varies depending on how much a client has to lose. For some the first couple of weeks can result in at least a stone being shed.  And the bonus of this diet is that while many slow the metabolic rate, this increases it.

Shenaz says: ‘One of the big problems for the people who come to me for help is that they just don’t know what they should or shouldn’t be eating.  There are so many conflicting reports in the media and fads come and go, it’s very confusing’.

Metabolic balancing is not about selling meal replacements. All the food you will be recommended can be bought from your local supermarket.  Instead what it does, thanks to the analysis of your blood samples, is guide you as to which foods will and won’t suit you.

Shenaz admits:  ‘As with any diet the first couple of weeks can be quite tough as you adjust to the foods that should and shouldn’t be in your daily diet.  But the thousands of people that I have dealt with on this programme admit that they re-gain a real appreciation for food, feel healthier and their energy levels increase’.

Boy George and Jemma Kidd are known to be converts to metabolic balancing. The thousands who have already tried the plan claim that not only has the weight loss been dramatic. They have changed their body shape too, shifting stubborn fat that refused to go with other diets they’d tried.

Trained coaches like Shenaz and her team will offer constant support throughout each phase of the metabolic balancing. Even once you’ve achieved your natural weight, they will be there to offer follow up help and advice.

non surgical treatments central London

Get into shape with the best non surgical treatments central London available.

We’ve all got annoying lumps, bumps and sagging skin that stubbornly refuse to go no matter how many times we diet or visit the gym. There is a raft of non surgical treatments central London available, that can get you into great shape.

The Face and Body Clinic in Harley Street is at the forefront of these non-surgical therapies.

Beauty and well-being expert Shenaz Shariff has a client list that can testify the results are visible from the outset when it comes to:

  • Sculpting the body and reducing unwanted fat deposits.
  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite
  • Contouring facial skin

So what are these non-surgical treatments and how do they work?

Tripollar Radio Frequency

The treatment area targeted by Controlled energy using three or more electrodes. Using sophisticated algorithms that prevent overheating and damage to the skin.

Targeted body treatments shrink fat cells in the hypodermis layer and accelerate collagen regeneration.

How can a non-surgical treatment like this be effective?

Elastic fibres in the skin, collagen and elastin are produced by fibroblasts. As they are heated they contract and collagen strands are pulled closer which immediately tightens the skin.

The deep heating effect accelerates fat cell metabolism causing them to shrink.

The rise in temperature forces the fat cells to secrete fatty acids (liquid fat), which are then disposed of via the blood and lymph system.

And for you that means fat and circumference reduction, younger looking skin and long-term skin re-modelling.

Depending on the size of the area being treated – a typical course of this type of non-surgical therapy at a central London clinic by Shenaz would consist of up to 8 sessions each taking between 20 and 40 minutes.

If you want to concentrate on wrinkles, fine lines, skin pigmentation and improving blemishes such as acne scars, then contact Shenaz for a consultation about a non-surgical treatment using Trifractional technology.

It can effectively re-surface the skin with minimal discomfort and virtually no downtime.

Now for a bit of science!

Three pulses enable radio frequency energy to penetrate deep into the tissue without over-heating the target tissue.

  1. The first pulse makes pinpoint size spots on the epidermis.
  2. The next pulse penetrates into the skin heating the tissue.
  3. The third penetrates deepest, heating the mid-dermis.

The effect is to create micro wounds which then trigger the body’s natural healing response.

Helping collagen regeneration and creating healthy skin tissue. Like all non-surgical treatments carried out by Shenaz at her central London clinic, the therapies are painless.

Many therapies can work in combination.

It is essential that you have an expert consultation from someone like Shenaz Shariff.

Shenaz has vast experience in non-surgical treatments and is the central London clinic of choice when it comes to manufacturers show-casing their latest technology.

One innovation which will volumise your skin and lift sagging areas of the face without painful invasive surgery is Hybrid energy therapy. Which can work in conjuction with Trifractional technology.

This unique technology gives a tailored full-face treatment that will give you a natural look.

Even better it allows for on-going rejuvenation so the results are not only long lasting but enhanced over time.

How is this achieved?

Hybrid Energy combines two types of electrical energies which deliver Hot and Electrical Invisible Micro Ablation (IMA) to the skin via a series of micro pins.

Firstly Hot IMA penetrates the dermis, then the Electrical IMA creates micro-wounds while at the same time triggering a wound-healing effect.

Working in partnership it induces re-modelling of dermal collagen, elastin growth and increased production of Hyaluronic Acid.

It might sound a bit scary but:

  • It’s safe and clinically proven
  • Doesn’t require the introduction of foreign substances to the skin
  • Suits all skin types
  • Treats a wide range of aesthetic issues

The beauty of non-surgical treatments is that it is:

  • pain free.
  • causes minimal discomfort and downtime,
  • looks and feels great
  • continues working on your skin even after the sessions have finished.

Get a body to make you the envy of your friends without stepping foot in the gym.

Are you sick of reality show stars, supermodels and Hollywood celebs who seem to be able to slip into their skinny jeans as soon as they’ve given birth?

Or look great in a bikini despite claims they can’t resist chocolate and burgers?

Dynashape is a non-surgical treatment which is used exclusively at The Face and Body Clinic in Central London.

It doesn’t matter whether you are thin or overweight, cellulite is a fact of life for most post-pubertal women.

Over time the skin loses its thickness and this unfortunately enhances the visibility of unsightly cellulite bumps.

Expert practitioner Shenaz Shariff says: ‘It can be disheartening when, no matter how much you diet or exercise, stubborn areas of fat just won’t go”.

“I hear so many women feel like they just have to accept it and yet it eats into their confidence about how they feel about their body. ‘But at my central London clinic I can offer a non-surgical treatment that, unlike liposuction, is non-invasive’.

Dynashape uses ultrasound technology to break down fat and in effect melt it via a series of lenses that can be altered to target different depths.

non surgical treatments central LondonThe fat is eliminated, draining away via the body’s lymphatic system and ultimately leading to a slimmer figure. This non-surgical treatment is accompanied by an endodermic massage which activates cell membranes in the tissues. Removing fat cell and helping to drain fluid accumulation.

As Sonia, one of Shenaz’s clients admits: ‘I have always been self conscious about my stretchmarks and stubborn fat on my arms to the point that sleeveless tops didn’t feature in my wardrobe at all even in Saharan temperatures.

‘I was sceptical about Dynashape, it seemed to good to be true but I gave it a go and the results were spectacular.

I’ve got my self confidence back and am wearing the clothes I’ve always wanted without feeling the need to cover up’.

Even better the results are immediate. You will be amazed what a difference just one treatment of Dynashape will make. You can have slimmer thighs, tummies or upper arms.
It is pain free just like the other non-surgical treatments at this central London clinic.

Not only does Dynashape slim and re-shape your body, it:

  • Reduces cellulite
  • Improves skin elasticity and tone
  • Drains areas of fluid swelling
  • Improves blood circulation

Results are immediate, however a full course is recommended to get the body you want. Contact Shenaz Shariff for a consultation and make sure you are bikini ready whatever the time of year.

Exporex Mesotherapy

non surgical treatments central London

The success of this non-surgical treatment was highlighted on Channel 4’s Embarrassing Teenage Bodies. Shenaz was able to successfully help a teenager with a severe case of stretch marks at her central London clinic.

The secret of this treatment’s success is a process known as Isophoresis. Which requires electrical waves to be sent through a formula of nutrients – the individual ingredients are tailored to individual requirements. Depending on the results wanted – and pushed painlessly into the skin.

These electrical waves stimulate the lymphatic system to encourage the removal of toxins and the nutrients. Which can include vitamins, mineral and herbal concentrates, reverse the physiological effects of cellulite and stretch marks by promoting skin regeneration.

It can be used on all ages and combined with the right diet and exercise routine the results are long-lasting

Mesotherapy is widely used in Europe to treat various injuries and medical conditions. Using microinjections of conventional or homeopathic medicines, vitamins and minerals and amino acids.

These tiny medicinal bullets are injected directly into the mesoderm ( middle layer of the skin) specific to the condition being treated.

The mesolift is a process which injects a combination of minerals and nutrients into the skin to promote production of collagen and elastin and stimulate your metabolism.

Skin ages, circulation decreases and the reduction in oxygen hinders your body’s ability to flush out toxins which in turn drives premature ageing and causes the skin to develop an ashen appearance.

After the treatment skin looks rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. An alternative to botox and topical creams and surgical facelifts.

Shenaz will be able to offer advice on the best type of non-surgical treatment for you. Contact her at her central London clinic.info@thefaceandbodyclinic.co.uk

Hair today, gone tomorrow

non surgical treatments central London

Unwanted hair is never attractive whether on your face or other parts of your body.

IPL hair removal is affordable, safe and quick, however you will require a consultation and test patch as unlike most non-surgical treatments it doesn’t work on every hair colour and skin type.

Developed 15 years ago. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology targets the pigment in the hair and destroys the hair follicle preventing future hair growth.

This non-invasive treatment which is available at the Face and Body Clinic in Central London. Each pulse of light might sting a little bit – like the snap of a rubber band against your skin.

The equipment used contains a cooling system that makes it more comfortable.

There might be slight redness and swelling after treatment which will last a few hours. Some people feel a slight sunburn type sensation but the discomfort is minimal.

Shenaz says the number of treatments can vary depending on the hair growth but at least 10 sessions should lead to complete hair removal. Followed by maintenance follow ups as advised.

Studies have shown an average 80 per cent hair loss after 8 treatments.

Botox or fillers. Which is the right one for you?

Botulinum toxin is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles which cause lines and wrinkles. It’s also used to treat medical conditions such as excessive sweating.

Botox is the best known brand and the safest having been certified by the medical and cosmetic industry.

Botox is injected into muscles and is used to improve the look of frown lines between the eyebrows, and can also be used around the side of the eyes to improve severe crow’s feet.

As with other non-surgical treatments there’s no downtime, furthermore there’s no one rule fits all. Some patients may see slight bruising or swelling depending on their skin.

Results should last up to 6 months.

When we are born we have a plentiful supply of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our body. As we age, our stores of it diminish so lines and wrinkles develop. Dermal fillers give a fresher appearance to the face by injecting naturally occurring HA through a tiny needle to targeted areas. It is fast and leaves no scars.

Dr Anil Budh Raja is a specialist in anti ageing injectable treatments. And is part of the team that works alongside Shenaz Shariff at the Face and Body Clinic in central London.

The procedure takes around 45 minutes and the subtle effects can last for up to 18 months.

Dr Raja also offers other non-surgical treatments for dermatological conditions like eczema, psoriasis and mole screening.

Facelift without the surgery

At the more extreme end of non-surgical treatments is a PDO Threadlift. PDO Threadlift redefines facial contours and can last up to 3 years depending on your lifestyle.

Used to treat upper and lower cheeks, foreheads, jawline and neck, local anaesthetic. PDO is injected into the treatment area and then the PDO thread is inserted using a micro needle – into the subcutaneous layer of the skin.

When the needle is taken out, the threads remain implanted and activates the skin’s regenerative process.

The procedure can take up to an hour.

By combining PDO with other non surgical treatments, great results can be achieved. The best candidates are men and women who are starting to see the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead or sagging in the mid and lower face. Or who have loose skin on the neck.

Oxypeel fighting the effects of stress

Spots and blemishes are an inevitable blot on our angst ridden teenage years. Balancing the rigorous demands of a career and family is causing an outbreak of adult acne amongst thousands of women.

Shenaz Shariff says in the UK 80% of adult acne occurs in women. While clinical studies in America have revealed 54% of females over 25 now suffer some facial acne.

Film stars Keira Knightley and Cameron Diaz have had it, so too has fashionista Victoria Beckham. While it’s thought fluctuating hormone levels caused by periods and pregnancy may account for some to suffer. The primary aggravating factor is increasingly becoming chronic stress.

  • The sebaceous glands are tiny glands found near the surface of your skin.
  • The glands are attached to hair follicles, small holes in the skin that individual hairs grow out of.
  • The glands lubricate the hair and skin to stop it drying out by producing sebum.
  • In acne, the glands produce too much sebum. It mixes with dead skin cells to form a plug in the follicle.
  • These can then become infected causing pustules.

Shenaz says: ‘When you combine workplace stress with household responsibilities, cosmetics, skin irritants and monthly hormone fluctuations. You have the perfect breeding ground for adult acne’.

Why Oxypeel? Oxypeel fighting effects stress

Oxypeel the answer to fighting the effects of daily stressShenaz, believes that Oxypeel, a treatment which is applied much like a normal face mask, is the antidote. To giving these woman back a blemish free skin and the confidence to look in the mirror again.

It is a peeling treatment. But it isn’t a chemical peel. Instead it works via biological exfoliation.

Rather than peeling any skin off with it, Oxypeel works by allowing oxygen into the basal layer of the skin where new cells are generated. It also dislodges damaged skin cells exfoliating the skin while helping control the skin’s sebum productions. The main cause of acne.

By removing the film of bacteria on the surface of the skin and imparting oxygen to the base of it. The skin can regenerate.

Oxypeel, one of many innovative non-surgical treatments available at Shenaz’s central London clinic, was developed by medical scientist Sujata Jolly. Who specialised in dermatology and has been at the cutting edge of developments in UK skincare for 30 years.

Sujata is well known for her expertise in skin disorders and works closely with her practitioners. To ensure they can provide the best possible treatment for their clients placing great emphasis on assuring their efficacy and simplicity.

Can it help other skin conditions? Oxypeel fighting the effects stress

Shenaz treats many celebrity and high profile clients for whom the way they look is paramount, but believes the highly effective non-surgical treatments she uses at her central London clinic can help thousands of men and women who may suffer from acne, pigmentation discolouring, scarring and even sun damage.

‘I work with each individual client to work out a treatment programme that will suit exactly their particular skin issues. I know from many years of experience that Oxypeel has been hugely effective in not only improving skin-tone but in giving my clients back their confidence and self esteem. Oxypeel fighting effects stress

‘Better still there are no side effects just healthy looking skin’.

How many treatments will I need?

For best results, Shenaz recommends clients have an Oxypeel treatment once a week for six weeks with a break of two weeks after which the skin is re-assessed to see if any further therapy is required.

‘The results of Oxypeel build up over the course but some improvements are noticeable immediately. A lot depends on the skin itself as everyone is different and some people may be more responsive immediately, for others it will take a little more time, but generally we have found six treatments offer great results,’says Shenaz.

Ruby Hammer who had the treatment is a huge advocate of Oxypeel. ‘Shenaz Shariff is incredible. The results were immediate and I thoroughly recommend a course of treatment to anyone’.

What after care is required?

Oxypeel the answer to fighting the effects of daily stress‘I recommend that my clients only use Oxypeel foaming Milk which is a cleanser and exfoliator during the treatment process and should be used as part of their daily skin care routine,’ says Shenaz.

It accelerates cell removal by loosening the bonds that hold dead cells to the skin’s surface, and stimulates cell regeneration. Regular use of Foaming Milk increases production ofelastin and collagen leading to fresher and healthier looking skin. Foaming Milk is effective but gentle for use on the entire face, including the gentle eye area and on the neck and décolleté.

It contains Agua, Synthetic Surfactant, Hydrolysed Protein, Allantoin, Aloe Vera, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Propylene Glycol, Nipastat.
Shenaz also asks that her clients use Zap It topical acne cream during the treatment course.

It helps control spots, prevent scarring and hyper-pigmentation and doesn’t damage or cause sensitivity to the skin.

It works by dissolving the keratin plug that blocks the pilosebaceous duct. Antibacterial agents destroy micro-organisms in the sebaceous glands and the released oxygen encourages healing and reduces inflammation. Or to make it less scientific, Zap-it works by oxygenating, healing and nourishing the skin as spots vanish!

Key ingredients are Aqua, Alkyl-dimethyl-benzyl ammonium chloride, Bromelin, Lysine, Cocoamphodiacetate, P- hydroxybezoic acid esters.
