Why non-surgical aesthetic procedures?

As a professional within the industry,  you may wonder why now is better time than ever to invest in more non-surgical aesthetic procedures to offer to your clients. Recent statistics show that the popularity and demand for surgical aesthetic procedures such as injectable fillers, face-lifting surgeries and corrections has declined by 10% while non-aesthetic procedures are on the rise.

In the world we live in today, people are striving more than ever to always look beautiful, youthful and desirable. With rise of social media, necessity of online presence and the era of selfies and self-love, people are always in front of cameras, around other people. Today’s world is also a lot more fast-paced than it was 5 or 10 years ago. This means that people need quick fixes, instantly without the wait. People hate queues, waiting for deliveries, waiting for replies. In today’s world there is no time for waiting and being patient. Everything happens NOW.

The aesthetics industry recognises the world moving forward and at such fast pace, and laboratories across the world have been working on products that can be used in procedures without the need for invasive treatments. Lots of new patents and products are popping up all over the place to minimise the intensity of treatments, its time, recovery time from them and overall side effects as well.

One of these as an example, is V Soft Lift who patented the PDO threads and are one of the first companies to introduce thread lifting as an aesthetic procedure. Although, still an invasive technique involving threads penetrating the skin, it is non-irritable, and the results are seen immediately with only expected improvement over the course of few weeks afterwards. The results last for a year or two, depending on the clients’ lifestyle and the treatment itself takes only 45 – 60 minutes to perform. Your clients could literally get this done within their work day, and still make it to all their meetings, just looking 10 years younger. There is no downtime so they can step outside your clinic and go into the world just after the treatment. Means no breaks in the social media posting or busy days. If someone is looking to lift their down-turned mouth corners, eyebrows, smooth their chin or lift their cheeks, V-soft lift threads allows you to achieve that. Just look at the results:

Another reason for the decline in demand for invasive treatments, may be the general public opinion and since now is easier to voice your opinion than ever – people opt out for non-invasive treatments to avoid looking ‘done’ or because they are worried they might at the end of recovery time. The treatments tend to be more expensive than non-invasive treatments and since most non-invasive treatments give you instant or very quick results at the very list, it makes sense clients would rather go for those.

Recent rise in the popularity of a healthy, natural balanced lifestyle may also be a factor and that ties in with the previous point. Since natural beauty is being heavily promoted, nobody wants to admit they had any work done at all and also appearing ‘natural’ is very important in today’s public eye. Non-invasive treatments tend to create a more natural looking result.

Have you heard of PRX-T33? It’s a revolutionary new product to the UK market, already hugely popular in Russia and Italy. It is an active skin programme, with supporting creams for after-treatment care. It is a completely non-invasive treatment, designed to be used for a large number of skin conditions. The product uses 33% TCA with H2O2. It takes 10 -15 mins to perform the treatment and the effects are seen immediately. They only evolve over the course of the next week or so, until it is time for the next treatment. There is no downtime with this treatment, and it is simple, painless and easy for the patient as well as you, the doctor. Again, just have a look at these results!

V – Soft Lift | PDO Threads | #Allyouneedtoknow

If you are a medical aesthetic professional, you may be familiar with PDO threads and heard lots of different information about them. But did you know that it is V-soft lift who first came up and patented the technique?

V-Soft-Lift-the-new-facelift-that-creates-collagen.-Product-review-by-Beauty-Blogger-Sarah-Jagger.jpg

It is an innovative, less invasive alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. Latest statistics revealed recently that the number of clients opting for cosmetic surgery has dropped by 10%, while non-surgical cosmetic procedures are on the rise. Clients want results fast, with little to no downtime due to the fast-paced lives and filled up calendars. With this new method, your clients can forget about ugly scars or a long recovery time yet still receive excellent results.

The threads are made of polydioxanone (PDO) which is known to be extremely compatible with the natural tissue in our dermis and has been used for over 30 years. An added benefit is that the material, PDO, stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen – and we know how important that is!

V-soft lift can only be used and performed by qualified, triained doctors. Many fine threads are inserted just under the skin to create a safe and efficient lift to the whole face, or just certain areas. A treatment takes between 30 to 60 minutes. You could essentially have this done in your lunch hour and still make it for the 2pm meeting and surprise the boss with beautiful, lifted skin  as the results show immediately and only continues to improve for about four weeks by which time you will definitely see the skin look younger, fresher and fuller.

…and one of the best thing is, that it is a long-lasting treatment – between 12 to 24 months which is dependant on the client’s age and lifestyle. The results can be easily prolonged by repeating the treatment after about 9 months.

It is a fantastic treatment to offer to your clients who are looking for something quick and effective, for those with little time to spare on recovery. It can transform downturned mouth corners, eyebrows, smooth the chin and lift the cheeks.

Hyaluronic Acid |5 Things To Know | #beauty

Hyaluronic Acid now very well-known across beauty and skincare brands. It is present in most products available on the market, from the high street brands to the more prestigious ranges.

Do you know much about it though? I know when I first started taking interest in the world of aesthetics and beauty products, Hyaluronic Acid was just a mysterious chemical element to my products that worked wonders – as promised by the beauty brands and beauty experts. How can you boost Hyaluronic acid naturally and why is it the no 1 ingredient in beauty products? Find out below.

  1. The Natural Miracle 
    50% of the body’s Hyaluronic Acid is found in the skin tissue. After years of research scientists found that you can create Hyaluronic Acid in laboratories, and once added to skincare products, they were amazed at the anti-ageing results it had on the skin of the patients. It isn’t harsh or skin-stripping and it attracts moisture to the skin. Long known factor in keeping the skin looking young and healthy.

  1. Wine me up, and watch me go! 
    As we know, Hyaluronic Acid is produced already in the body, it is a natural compound found mostly in our eyes and skin. Red wine has been long proclaimed as a miracle in small doses, and here, yet again it proves that we shouldn’t feel guilty about that one glass at the end of the day after all. Red wine is know for helping the body produce its own Hyaluronic Acid. And as you know, the more of that good stuff, the younger we look!

  2. Hungry?
    Leafy greens and homemade broths are the ones you should be interested in to boost your natural Hyaluronic Acid production. You will want a good ol’ Bone Broth (sorry, veggies!) which you can find a recipe for here. Enjoy with a glass of red. 😉

    For us veggies though, eggs are also a good source of Hyaluronic Acid as well as protein, of course. Your leafy greens, such as spinach or kale, which you can also chuck into your broths or incorporate with other dishes will benefit you, not only with boosting the Hyaluronic acid but also a boost for your immune system, protein intake and many other health benefits.

  3. Treat yourself….
    ….to a bottle of water. Or two. It is possibly the best gift for your skin and overall health. Widely known fact that water boosts many of bodies natural defence systems, and hydrated skin looks younger and more radiant than one that’s not regularly moisturised or exposed to dry weather conditions. Keep well hydrated, and your skin will thank you for it.

  4. Invest!
    No, I’m not sneaking in financial advice – invest in yourself, in your skin. Skincare products with Hyaluronic Acid are popularly deemed ‘expensive’ or even ‘over-priced’ but you cannot argue with science and the clinical trials. You are not over paying if you see that the science does work and the improvements are visible in just 14 DAYS! That’s with one product in particular, Fillerina. See how Fillerina’s Treatment Kit formulated with 6 Hyaluronic Acids worked for Alice Hart- Davies.

| AQUATEAL | NEW PRODUCT| 

C8UdYEWWAAABBEQ

Aquateal is the first product line providing 100% natural tan without any harmful agents that you can find in standard faux tan products, such as self-tanning sprays and creams. These tend to leave the skin quite dry, they smell unpleasant, are generally full of chemicals and more often than not, instead of a golden tan, the colour fades to a nasty orange. Aquateal are different as they use 100% natural ingredients, namely black tea. The idea inspired from 1960’s when women used to use black tea to rub on their legs to create an effect of having stockings on, with a line down the middle of the back of the leg, in eye pencil to create the seam.

Aquateal tan gives you an instant effect, you can use Bronzing Wipes for an immediate subtle effect of a golden glow or the Bronzing Water for a more defined effect. Apply using cotton pads or self-tanning gloves. The tan lasts all day and is non-transferable on clothing, which means no more orange-streaked white sheets in the morning. The tan washes off easily at the end of the day, following your usual shower and skincare routine.

It is perfect for that extra factor when it comes to making an impression with limited time on your hands. Easy application, immediate and lasting effect means you can step into any event or dinner party, looking radiant and with a golden glow.

| PRX -T33 – SOFT LAUNCH |

C8UzFgDXYAE1IsF

PRX-T33 is a revolutionary product which gained huge success in Russia and Germany already, now introduced to the UK market. The product is an active skin programme, with supporting creams for after-treatment care. It is a completely non-invasive treatment, designed to be used for a large number of skin conditions. The product uses 33% TCA with H2O2. It takes 10 -15 mins to perform the treatment and the effects are seen immediately. They only evolve over the course of the next week or so, until it is time for the next treatment. There is no downtime with this treatment, and it is simple, painless and easy for the patient as well as the doctor.

 ACE 2017 was our soft launch for this product,  and CCR 2017 is going to be our official launch. We had a Dr Mariya Sergeyeva perform a demo and presentation about the product, at the Expert Clinic – see below.

| PRX -T33 | EXPERT CLINIC with Dr Mariya Sergeyeva |

IMG_20170401_145016.jpg

Dr Mariya Sergeyeva is a board certified dermatologist. She is head doctor at Soul Spa Anti-Age Centre and has been in the field of aesthetic medicine for more than 10 years. She is a Key Opinion Leader in the industry, being invited as a speaker at numerous national and international congresses. She is a faculty member and a consulting expert for several leading companies, training physicians in injectables, EBD and peels.

We invited Dr Sergeyeva to present the product and describe in depth about its qualities and why she has been using it for her patients, providing an industry relevant insight of cases she has worked on, and the impressive results achieved with this product. She then proceeded to perform a treatment as a demonstrate of how to apply and how to use the product to around 50 doctors sat down at the presentation. The treatment took 15 minutes and you could see the effect immediately on the model, with her skin looking clearer and more plump than before. The length of the treatment, like many others depends on the patient itself.

You receive 5 bottles of 4ml in the box, which lasts for around 10 treatments, as you use 2ml per treatment.
