How Long Does Swelling Last After Lip Fillers?

Will Botox Lift My Eyebrows?

Botox is a fantastic way to reduce wrinkles on your face.  Commonly in areas such as the forehead and frown lines.  Are you are conscious of sagging eyelids and brows?.  Botox can also give your eyebrows an extra lift.  Giving a boost your confidence.

Botox can lift your eyebrows by injecting it into the areas around the eyebrows.  This smooths sagging skin, making eyebrows appear lifted and more symmetrical.  Botox can help to create a fresh, youthful look by opening up the eyes and reducing drooping.

How does a Botox brow lift work?

A Botox® brow lift is a non-surgical procedure.  It involves injecting Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) into the muscles. This wrinkle treatment works by relaxing the muscles surrounding the eyebrow area.  Once injected this prevents movement.  The skin around the eyebrow area will look smoother and lifted.

How long until you see results from a Botox brow lift?

If you have a Botox brow lift, you can expect to start seeing results relatively quickly, usually within a few days.  Full results can take up to two weeks.  A Botox brow lift can last for three to six months before you require a top up.

What are the benefits of a Botox brow lift?

A Botox brow lift is a simple and easy procedure.  It has the power to completely transform your eye area and boost your confidence.  A small amount of Botox can make your eyebrows look evenly balanced.   The lift will flatter the framing of your face.  It can also make it easier to put on makeup due to the reduced sagging and easier access to the eyelid area.

Can Chemical Peels Remove Acne?

Are you are looking for an effective and safe solution to helping acne?.  Chemical peels are fantastic at reducing the appearance of acne.  At Austin Brewer facial aesthetics clinic, we provide chemical skin peels in Bournemouth .  With the added benefits of a highly qualified practitioner with skilled expertise.  Here are a few ways that chemical skin peels can help to remove mild to moderate acne and improve your confidence.

Calms down blemishes

The good news is that chemical peels in Bournemouth, at the Austin Brewer clinic can help to reduce the appearance of acne.  A medical grade skin peel will help rejuvenate your skin and reduce problems, including blackheads, whiteheads, inflamed red pimples and cystic acne. The growth of bacteria that results in the formation of acne, Propionibacterium acnes, can be prevented.  And this happens through the active anti-inflammatory ingredients which are found within chemical skin peels.  Therefore leaving you with an improved, smoother complexion.

Reduces acne scarring

Scarring can be an unfortunate side effect to acne.  This can be frustrating and upsetting, even if your active acne is calming down.  Chemical peels are an effective solution to reducing acne scars and accelerates the healing the process. This is due to the increase in collagen production within the skin that takes place after undergoing skin peeling.

Smoother and more even skin texture

Due to the anti-inflammatory and brightening properties of skin peeling.  A medical skin peel can significantly improve the texture of your skin.  Skin peels in Bournemouth at Austin Brewer can brighten your skin.  Leaving you with a healthy glow and a smoother, even texture.

Prevents pore-clogging

Chemical peels are a great way to keep you skin in tip-top condition for a long period of time.  This is because the skin’s top layer is dissolved during skin peels.  This then removes dead skin and oil under the surface.  So therefore this means that after a chemical peel, it is much less likely you will suffer with clogged pores.

How To Find A Botox & Filler Practitioner

Looking for the right Botox & Filler practitioner is becoming an important consideration for many consumers. This is mainly due to the drop in average age of clients for cosmetic procedures such as lip fillers and Botox.  Also because the number of unhappy botched procedures have increased over the last few years.

Don’t be one of the thousands making the mistake by choosing the wrong Botox & Filler practitioner.  Leaving you with undesirable results. Austin Brewer’s skin clinic in Bournemouth are here to help you find the right practitioner to make you feel more confident.

Where do you start your search in looking for a Botox & Filler practitioner?

Firstly, it is vital that your aesthetic practitioner is using the very best, high-quality facial aesthetics products.  Ensure you attend a thorough face to face consultation before going ahead with any facial aesthetics treatment. Check that their products are sourced from a UK pharmacy with a valid prescription.  Avoid any practitioner that has imported fake/black market products.  These products do not meeting strict UK government legislation and could have serious side effects on your health.  Make the effort to do your research.  You will thank us in the long run!

What should you look for in an aesthetic practitioner?

Look for someone who is a fully qualified and trained healthcare professional.   Also someone who is artistic and can make facial aesthetics treatment work for your individual features. We also recommend an aesthetic practitioner who is easily contactable and local to your area, with time available to provide you with regular check-ups regarding your treatment. This is essential for post-treatment help and advice.

Using a specialist facial aesthetics clinic also ensures that you are provided with the most knowledgeable service.  Someone who is on hand with medical treatment in the rare case that the worst happens, such as an allergic reaction.

Can you use an aesthetic practitioner from social media?

If you cannot find any other means of contacting the aesthetic practitioner or any important information regarding their experience and qualifications apart from their social media pages, then alarm bells should be ringing.  Don’t be fooled by their number of followers or the reviews.  You never know how authentic this might be.  If you are unhappy with your results or you want to make a complaint, it is very easy for them to press that block button.  There is zero accountability with the social media route – it’s not worth the risk!

What if I need to complain about my aesthetic practitioner?

Before choosing a facial aesthetics practitioner, you should ensure that they have a governing body that will support you if the unfortunate need to complain does arise.  Therefore, using a medical professional is essential, as often beauticians will not have a governing body and will vanish into thin air as soon as you complain, leaving you helpless.

Can I ask my friends for advice?

If your friends provide you with advice, make sure they have your best interests at heart.  We always recommend doing your own research first to ensure that you can put your trust in the aesthetic practitioner, but more importantly that they are a medical professional.  A great practitioner will offer you a free consultation if they are reputable.

Your professional aesthetic practitioner has all the answers you need based on up to date researched medical information, which is all for your well-being and safety.

Should you consider pricing when choosing an aesthetic practitioner?

When undergoing facial aesthetics treatments with an aesthetic practitioner, you are not just paying for the product alone. You pay for the level of experience, clinical advice and administration, professionalism, safety, on-going care and accountability.  Cost should not be the only consideration, as there are other more medically important factors that should come first.

However, the cheapest cosmetic treatments will always be the cheapest for a reason. In other words, the aesthetic practitioner is unlikely to be using the best products and / or the most qualified.  On the other hand, don’t automatically assume the most expensive will be the best.  This can also be an expensive mistake to make if you do not achieve a great result. We’ll say it again: research is key.

Whilst some of the above might seem a little far-fetched, unfortunately we speak from experience. Clients we have helped in the past have often experienced these issues from not choosing the right aesthetic practitioner due to a lack of research.  We would never want you to be the next person walking through our door due to a bad experience elsewhere.  At Austin Brewer in Bournemouth, we want you to have your facial aesthetics treatment done to the highest quality first time.

To receive further advice and to find out more about our professional and specialist facial aesthetics services, such as lip fillers in Poole and Botox® at our Austin Brewer skin clinic, call us on 07823 883888 and we will be happy to assist you. We also offer all patients a free consultation.

3 Ways You Can Contour & Slim Your Face and Jaw Using Fillers

Contour & Slim your face…

Celebrities, make-up artists and social media influencers have been using tricks to contour & slim their clients faces for years.  To enhance and create a more flattering facial appearance.  You can contour & slim your face by using a combination of concealer, bronzer and highlighter.  Most importantly contouring can give the illusion of prominent cheekbones, a slimmer nose and a more defined jawline.  Although this makeup process can achieve good results, it requires a lot of skill, product and time.  However, why not contour and slim your face so you always look naturally radiant.  So you don’t need access to the world’s top makeup artists in the morning!.

A much more effective alternative is using dermal fillers to contour and slim your face to emphasise your facial features.  Facial fillers provide definition and therefore contour your features without the need for heavy makeup or plastic surgery.
Interested in finding out more? Read on to discover three ways you can contour your face with fillers:

Define your jawline

Firstly genetics will play a huge part in whether you have a defined jawline.  If your jawbone is closer to your neck, it can appear less defined.  Age can also play a part in a changing jawline.  But the effects of ageing can be reduced without the need for invasive surgery.  If you’re unhappy with your current jawline, facial remodelling using dermal fillers may therefore be a suitable option for you.

If your jawline is sagging, by using dermal fillers to the surrounding and specific areas, excess skin can lift and add volume, filling out any drooping areas.  Austin Brewer who is a skilled and artistic facial aesthetic practitioner can sculpt and shape the jawline by adding dermal filler into these key areas.

If you have dimples or lines on or around your chin and jawline, these too can be filled with chin and jaw fillers by adding volume to any skin indents.  The results are immediate and can help restore a fresh and youthful appearance.
Fillers can be applied to help even out shape and define the lower half of your face for a more balanced appearance. They can also soften jowls and correct the appearance of your side profile.

Slimmer nose

Non-surgical facial remodelling can also be used to give the appearance of a slimmer nose.  Fillers can also even out any lumps and bumps on your nose too!

If you don’t want to commit to plastic surgery, would like a bump in your nose straightened out, or would like it to appear slender, this can be achieved using dermal fillers.  Dermal fillers are a great option for patients who would just like a small correction without surgery.  Reshaping can be achieved quickly and comfortably and is therefore becoming a popular alternative to rhinoplasty.

Highlight your cheekbones

For patients who are wishing to enhance the appearance of their cheekbones.  This simple dermal filler treatment alone certainly can make a huge difference to your face shape and confidence.  Dermal fillers add volume to sunken areas and as a result create beautifully contoured cheekbones.

Non-surgical facial remodelling can perfect facial proportions and enhance natural beauty.  Austin Brewer only uses 100% hyaluronic acid-based fillers which are highly biocompatible.

Treatments are mostly painless and are injected using an ultra-thin needle.  Sometimes patients will feel a slight discomfort, but this subsequently fades soon after the application.

How a Non-Surgical Nose Job Can Transform Your Look

Non-surgical nose jobs are becoming more and more popular and it’s easy to understand why.  Results are seen instantly, it’s more affordable than rhinoplasty and the recovery time is minimal.  If you’ve always wanted to tweak your nose shape to enhance your overall look, then read on and discover why a non-surgical nose job will be the best option for you.

Why is a non-surgical nose job better?

Many people have concerns about going under the knife as plastic surgery is extremely invasive.  Surgery needs plenty of downtime and requires an anesthetic.  If you prefer not to have permanent surgery, a non-surgical nose job may be more appealing.  Treatment is less risky and has fewer side effects.

The results are immediately noticeable and the recovery time is faster.  Initially, you may notice some swelling but this is temporary.  Any swelling generally settles down after 24 hours.

Almost all of us have seen a rhinoplasty that looks unconvincing, but non-surgical nose jobs give a natural appearance.

How does it work?

Dermal fillers are injected to specific areas to provide balance or to accentuate your nose shape.  The facial fillers used to even out bumps and create a straight line.  If your main concern is that your nose is too wide, filler can also be inserted into the end of your nose to lift the tip and give the appearance of a thinner shape.

How long will the results last?

One of the key benefits of this non-surgical procedure is the effects aren’t permanent.  Your results will last between six and eighteen months.  This time frame varies patient to patient as different volumes of fillers can be used to reach the desired look.

Surgery Or Non-Surgical Facelift – Which Is Best For You?

Non surgical facelifts are ideal if you’re looking for a way to revitalise, refresh and enhance. Looking at your facial aesthetics desires you may have thought about having a facelift. With so many cosmetic treatments available, such as facelifts and facial remodeling, we look at what option would be best for you.

Surgical facelifts

A surgical facelift is designed to give you a more youthful appearance by reducing sagging skin. Carried out under general anesthetic, the surgeon will make incisions into the skin, pull it upwards and then stitch it into its new position. It usually takes around two to three hours to perform, and most patients will stay overnight. It can take up to nine months to recover and you may need to take some time off work. As with any type of surgery, there are possible risks. If you take blood-thinning medications or have a condition which prevents blood clotting, you would not be able to have a surgical facelift. It is also not recommended for smokers as you may have reduced wound healing capabilities.

Non-surgical facelifts

A non-surgical facelift allows you to alter the look of specific areas of your face using dermal fillers. Eliminating the need to go under the knife, this quick procedure provides instant results and has a recovery time of just 24-hours.
There is minimal risk compared to surgery, as there is no need for anesthetic. It is a much more cost-effective way of achieving that smooth and even complexion. As results last between six and eighteen months there is no long-term commitment.
Facial fillers also help to reverse the signs of aging by increasing the volume and ‘plumpness’ of the skin’s texture. The added volume gives your complexion a youthful softness. In contrast, surgery will simply stretch the skin out, which can leave you with a hollow and sunken appearance.

Non-surgical nose job

A non-surgical nose job works in the same way as a non-surgical facelift. If you are looking to straighten your nose, fillers can be inserted to even out any bumps. If you want a thinner nose, filler can be applied to the tip to create that illusion.

8 Point Face Lift

MD Codes are used to guide the points where fillers should be inserted to complement the natural contours of your face. It mimics the look of a surgical facelift but eliminates the lengthy recovery process and unsightly scars.

When Is The Best Time To Start Botox?

So, when is the best time to start Botox?.  We all know the basics of good skin care. Avoid smoking, sunbathing, get your eight hours of beauty sleep, ect. But lifestyle habits can have a varied effect on your skin depending on your age. Drinking a few too many cocktails in the sun will have less damaging effect on a twenty-year-old than a fifty year old. So when should you start thinking about wrinkle treatments?

Botox In Your Twenties

“Preventative Botox” is becoming more and more popular with young women. Many women in their twenties are having Botox in Bournemouth to reduce the risk of wrinkles and lines forming too deeply in future. This may be a good idea for those who are noticing faint lines from squinting or frowning. Early Botox is also recommended for twenty-somethings who regularly sunbathe or smoke.

Botox In Your Thirties

Your thirties are normally when most people start to see noticeable wrinkles and lines. Women who have started their own family (and suffering from lack of sleep!) may be more susceptible to early wrinkles. Similarly, stress, smoking and sun rays will start to cause more damage to the skin than before. This is a good time to start Botox wrinkle treatments to prevent permanent deep lines.

Botox In Your Forties

At forty, most women will begin to form prominent crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox can be applied to these target areas to rejuvenate the skin and take years off you! This is also a good time to start chemical peels in Bournemouth, which stimulate collagen production and reduce the signs of aging.

Botox In Your Fifties

By the time women hit fifty, deep lines have formed around the eyes and mouth. The face may have also lost volume and elasticity. We recommend using a combination of Botox for pronounced lines and dermal fillers to bring back a youthful volume and glow to your complexion.

Botox In Your Sixties

Botox is for everyone and it’s never too late. Botox is an ideal option for mature women who don’t wish to under-go cosmetic surgery but want to improve their appearance. Although Botox alone may not make you look twenty one again, they can be combined with a dermal filler 8 point facelift to achieve a fresh, younger look.

Hopefully this helps answer “when is the best time to start Botox” If you would further information or would like to try Botox or lip fillers, contact us at our Austin Brewer skin clinic in Bournemouth on 07823 883 888 and book your free skin consultation.

Can Dermal Fillers help acne scars?

Even if the worst of your acne-ridden days are long gone, the evidence can remain on your face. Acne affects nearly all of us at some point but long-term physical scarring affects 20% of acne sufferers. At our skin clinic in Bournemouth, we understand that acne scarring can have deep impact on your self-esteem. Many of our patients talk about the impact of scarring has on their daily routine. But here we discuss how acne scarring can be treated with dermal fillers to help you feel confident in your own skin.

How dermal fillers treat acne scars

Dermal fillers in Bournemouth are ideal for treating specific types of acne scars. The treatment is most effective for ‘rolling’ scars (a wave-like indentation in the skin) and ‘boxcar’ scars (similar to chicken pox scars). The hyaluronic acid from the facial fillers are injected into the skin to plump the indentation. This adds volume in the skin to create a smooth surface texture.

What to expect

We recommend having an in-depth skin consultation with your facial aesthetic practitioner before starting treatment. They will discuss with you your requirements and the best type of dermal filler for your treatment. During your cosmetic treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and the dermal fillers will be injected into the desired areas. You may feel a little stinging sensation, but this discomfort is only temporary. The procedure is simple, and the results can be seen immediately.

Other cosmetic treatments for acne

If you are suffering from acne on a regular basis, try a chemical peel in Bournemouth. Chemical peels are very effective at decreasing acne breakouts and can help fade the signs of discolouration.

How does Botox treat depression?

When you are feeling down, it can be clearly seen in your facial expression. Many of us have childhood memories being told to ‘turn a frown upside down’, but can your facial expression affect how you feel?

Physical ways Botox can help depression

How can you use Botox® for depression? A study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research tested subjects with Botox® injected into the facial areas most commonly connected to low mood. The subjects were suffering from long-term depression but unconcerned with how they looked. Many of them claimed they never would have considered Botox® to improve their appearance. The research concluded that Botox® still improved the mood of the test subjects. This is because the injection of botulinum toxin relaxed the ‘frowning’ muscles and reduces the negative emotional signals transmitted to the brain.

Psychological ways Botox  treats depression

So, we understand Botox® in Bournemouth helps alleviate depression physically but what about psychologically? How we feel about our physical appearance can have a significant effect on our self-esteem. Most people will confirm that when they look good, they feel better and more confident. We find many of our clients feel Botox® smooths out their insecurities (as well as their wrinkles!). If you are feeling self-conscious about your laughter lines or those deep lines between your brows, wrinkle treatments can help reduce your concerns and feel better daily.

Botox® in Bournemouth

Whether you want to treat the physical or psychological symptoms of depression, start your journey with Botox® in Poole now. Austin Brewer is a professional aesthetic practitioner, who has many years’ experience in performing cosmetic treatments. Every patient is put completely at ease before treatment.

Why chemical peels are the secret to beautiful skin

Chemical peels are often talked about as a pinnacle of cosmetic treatments for skin care, and with good reason! Chemical peels are an effective way to achieve a radiant glow for your complexion. Read on to discover why skin peels are well worth the investment.

How do chemical peels work?

A chemical peel is a chemical solution that is applied to the face. The solution exfoliates the skin and gently peels it off.  The ‘new’ skin underneath will be visibly brighter and smoother than before. This process produces a combination of desirable results.

Goodbye Acne!

Although commonly associated with puberty, there has been a huge rise in adults seeking acne treatment in the past few years. In fact, one study found that acne now affects 9.4% of the worlds’ population! Luckily, skin peels can be an effective acne treatment. Chemical peels with salicylic acid can not only help prevent breakouts, it also minimises the appearance of acne scars.

Wrinkle treatment for aging skin

Sadly, aging eventually affects us all. But skin peels are an excellent wrinkle treatment, as they stimulate the collagen production of your skin. This extra collagen plumps up your skin and helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Make your skin (and skin-care routine) work harder!

Not only will chemical peels increase the level of collagen in your skin, it will also produce more hyaluronic acid (the core ingredient for dermal fillers!).  This will soften and smooth the surface texture of your skin. As an added bonus, your skin care products will also perform better after the skin cells have been exfoliated from your face, resulting in a fresh complexion for longer!

Are Botox Injections safe?

Botox has had a varied reputation over the years. From the initial health scares when Botox was first introduced as a cosmetic treatment, most people now accept that Botox is a safe way to treat wrinkles. Are botox injections safe?.  If you have any lingering concerns about the safety of Botox, let us put your mind at ease.

Botox for medical conditions

Years before Botox was used for cosmetic treatments, it was originally used in the medical profession to treat muscle spasms, eyelid tics and underarm sweating.  There is a long history of Botox safety.

Despite media scares and word-of-mouth rumours, Botox has a long and safe history. According to a 2005 study, there have only been 36 cases of adverse effects to Botox from 1989 to 2003, and 13 of those patients had previous medical conditions that may have caused the issues. The treatment has been approved as safe by governmental regulation bodies in over 80 countries across the globe.

Minor side effects

Botox can have minor side effects for a small minority of people. These include a slight bruising or skin discolouration.

Find a reputable aesthetic practitioner

Although Botox is now commonplace, it is important to remember that Botox is a prescription-only product. Botox injections should only ever be prescribed and performed by a qualified aesthetic practitioner, doctor, nurse, dentist.  So when you ask “are botox injections safe?” And are considering Botox, or any other Botox treatment, take time to find a trustworthy and reputable aesthetic practitioner such as Austin Brewer.

Book a skin consultation first

Always have a face-to-face skin consultation before using Botox. Discuss with your practitioner your medical history and the reasons you would like the treatment. Your practitioner should discuss how the treatment works and any minor side effects that may occur.

Why are lip fillers so popular?

Why are lip fillers so popular?, Full, plump lips are a huge trend right now, so it makes sense that lip fillers are in demand! But what else is causing the rise of lip fillers? We look at the many reasons why more and more people are trying lip fillers for the first time!

Change the shape, not just the size

Although there is a common misconception that lip fillers are used to create fake-looking full lips, filler can alter just specific sections of the lips. For example, many opt for fillers to be injected just their top lip or the lip line to alter the shape and create a natural look.  And of course the filler needs to be injected by a qualified professional who has artistic ability.  Lip filler treatments are completely unique to each individual – there is no one size fits all.

Lip fillers for a younger audience

As we get older, our lips tend to lose elasticity and thin out. As with dermal fillers, lip enhancements plump the lips with hyaluronic acid to give an overall youthful look. However, most people interested in lip fillers are in their 20s. More young people are seeking out lip fillers in Bournemouth, including girls in their late teens.

Lip fillers are not permanent

There has been a rise of non-surgical cosmetic solutions in the past few years. The appeal seems to stem from their temporary nature. After watching ‘plastic surgery gone wrong’ programmes, many dislike the idea of permanent plastic surgery. Instead you can try temporary lip fillers and see the results without any long-lasting effects.

Cosmetic treatments are not taboo

Whilst once considered a taboo subject, more people are talking about cosmetic treatments than before. Following the example of Kylie Jenner, young people openly show off their new full lips in selfies on social media.

Lip fillers are an easy procedure

Lip filler injections are a simple, non-surgical treatment. The procedure usually takes less than half an hour and causes only a mild discomfort for most patients. It is a safe, fast and easy solution for those who want fuller lips.

Interested in trying lip fillers in Bournemouth? Contact experienced aesthetic practitioner, Austin Brewer for more information about lip fillers or any of our other cosmetic treatments on  07823 88388 to arrange a free skin consultation.
