Our approach to aesthetic medicine is to address all the signs of ageing, rather than concentrating on a line here or a blemish there, with a global treatment plan using advanced products and expert technique we are able to achieve a natural aesthetic rejuvenation that quite simply makes you feel like a younger version of you”.  Our approach and dedication is clearly effective, with patients making twice yearly trips from as far away as New York, Perth and the Bahamas’ to visit the doctors, it’s easy to see why Clinetix has such a large and loyal following.

We offer a variety of aesthetic treatments at Clinetix to help boost your confidence and make you fall in love with your skin again.

Wrinkle Smoothing Treatments:

Wrinkles are often one of the first signs of ageing that people notice, and by developing techniques with wrinkle relaxing injections Clinetix have elevated the treatment of wrinkles into an art form!  Using carefully placed and carefully dosed injections in just the right place, the Doctors at Clinetix can not only painlessly relax your lines away without leaving you looking frozen or startled, but they can also softly and subtly alter the shape of the face, smoothing hard edges and creating youthful soft curves.  Prices for wrinkle relaxing injections start from £150

Skin Health:

Many doctors often overlook the condition of your skin when rejuvenation procedures are considered but we cannot stress how important healthy skin is for the whole appearance of your face. Clinetix offer a skin consultation service to advise on what the best treatments may be.  IPL treatments to remove fine red veins or blemishes start from £70, Fractional Laser resurfacing treatments to smooth, lift and tighten skin start from £600, micro needling treatments to reduce scarring and stimulate collagen growth start at £150.  Clinetix also offer the Vampire Facelift, a procedure to re inject parts of your own blood back into your skin to regenerate tired skin.  In addition to the treatments Clinetix have a range of cosmecuetical products including the Zein Obaji (ZO) range and a range of chemical peels to suit everyone.

Revolumising:

One of the most obvious changes that happen to us as we get older is a loss of volume in parts of the face.  Dermal fillers that used to be used to fill out fine lines and wrinkles have now come into their own as volume replacement treatments. Dr’s Simon and Emma are experts in assessing facial volume loss and revolumising procedures.  Using Advanced Dermal Fillers such as Radiesse as well as traditional Hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm and Belotero you can lift cheeks, temples and eyebrows, plump lips, reshape noses and chins and even redefine your jaw line.  When these treatments are combined with other non-invasive therapies like wrinkle relaxing injections facelift rejuvenation results can often be achieved.  Dermal Filler treatments start from £280

Skin Tightening:

Loose skin on your face can be lifted and replaced safely and non-invasively using our radiofrequency and infra red skin tightening device, ELOS.  Each gentle treatment stimulates collagen production into the skin and gives a lifting affect as well as tightening the skin to give a more youthful appearance.  Radiofrequency skin tightening starts from £70 per session.  For more dramatic results a Thread lift places sutures underneath the skin to physically lift and redrape loose skin over the underlying soft tissues.  Thread lifts require some numbing injections to be administered into the skin first and prices start from £800

Body Contouring:

Ageing effects the body also and loose sagging skin with cellulite can have an effect on confidence for women who want to wear a bikini on the beach or wear a short skirt at a function.  At Clinetix we use the Velashape II device that brings infra-red, radiofrequency, heat and massage together to tighten skin on your body, smooth away cellulite and even help you reduce your jean size!  Velashape II treatments at Clinetix start from £75 for a 25 minute session.

Clinetix firmly belief the old adage that age is just a number and that for many people a rejuvenation program gives a well needed confidence boost.  With an expert led service and years of experience you can rest assured that when you see a Doctor at a Clinetix Clinic you are in Safe Hands.

Which Treatment Is For Me?

The sheer number of different treatments now available for non surgical aesthetic rejuvenation can be bewildering for anyone starting to do a bit of research and find out what is best for them. In this article I’ll explain the main treatments available for various concerns, and hopefully make things a bit easier.

Before we even start to discuss the treatments though, you should remember one really important thing. This is not a process that should be commoditised. In aesthetic practice we are not retailing products or aesthetic medical services in the first instance. We are offering a consultation to give our patients the information they need about the treatment choices that would be best for them.

Here’s an example. Patient x has abdominal pain, does a bit of research and thinks he has appendicitis. Patient x doesn’t go to his surgeon saying “Doc, you need to take my appendix out” He says “Doc I have abdominal pain, can you tell me what it is?” Doc then takes a thorough history, undertakes an examination and on the basis of his knowledge and experience provides a differential diagnosis (possible causes) and a list investigations required to find the definitive diagnosis (actual cause). The Doc presents patient x with the available treatment options, explains the pros and cons of each treatment option, including no treatment at all, and together with this information the patient makes an informed decision about his or her treatment.

It’s similar in aesthetic medicine. A patient with sagging skin may have read about a thread lifting procedure and present to the clinic requesting the same, but often the patient has the diagnosis slightly wrong, and often has requested an inappropriate treatment. We prefer you come to us and say “This concerns me about my appearance, what do you think?” To be fair this is becoming more commonplace in our clinic and it means our patients are leaving happier, with better advice and more appropriate treatments.

Anyway, back to the list of things you may wish to consider. Starting with the worlds number one requested aesthetic procedure, anti-wrinkle injections.

Anti-wrinkle injections use a potent medicine that is injected into muscles to cause a temporary weakness that lasts for about 4 months. This can result in a reduction in lines and wrinkles associated with facial expression in the upper part of the face. Commonly used to treat glabella lines (verticle frown lines between the eyes) as well as horizontal forehead lines and crows feet. It is not particularly useful for treating lines around the mouth although it can be used in this area to smooth out the chin and prevent excessive movement of some muscles in this area. It can also be used to reduce the bulk of a master muscle resulting in narrowing of a wide jaw, and it can be used in the neck to reduce vertical tension bands and help in defining a jawline.

The second most common requested non surgical procedure is Dermal Fillers.

Dermal fillers are gel like implants that can be placed within the skin itself, or into the tissues beneath the skin to smooth lines, create contour and reshape a face. The most common area for treatment with dermal fillers in the UK is the lip (Lip Fillers) Typically this is to increase the size of the lips but in expert hands the treatments is used not for enlargement, but for rejuvenation. This means using the fillers carefully to recreate the structure of the lip without making it look larger than it should! A real expert will be able to use dermal fillers together with anti-wrinkle injections to replace lost facial volume, restore lip structure, lift eyebrows, jawlines and temples to create outstanding rejuvenation results that look completely natural.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels or skin peels are a treatment to improve the quality of the skin and address fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, textural concerns and lack of lustre. They are often misunderstood and in Clinetix we frequently find our patients are put off by the description of acid peeling the skin off! However it is important to understand that chemical peels are safe and effective treatments for skin improvement. If you forget the term “acid” then a peel is simply a solution that is applied to the skin for a set period of time, before being removed or neutralised. There are a number of different solutions that will have different sorts of effect and are used for different types of skin concern. For example we have a number of very superficial chemical peels that are not painful and have no actual “peeling” of the skin that are incredibly useful in the treatment of acne and rosacea. For skin rejuvenation, treatment of fine lines, and pigmentation we have some solutions that may induce some dryness or flaking for a few days but again no actual peeling or pain.

Okay that’s the three commonest treatments we perform at our clinic. Most patients attend with a variety of concerns relating to an ageing appearance as well as skin concerns and it is usual for a treatment plan to be created that involves addressing all concerns with combinations of the above three treatments.

Next time I’ll talk about other rejuvenation treatments including PRP, Thread Lifts, Laser treatments, Large Volume Treatments and how we use them all in combination to achieve amazing results.
