Tighten up

With summer in our sights, now is the time to lift, tighten and contour your way to a smoother silhouette, as well turning back the clock on sagging jowls and skin.

CoolTech Fat Freezing is a totally non-invasive treatment which targets fat cells, whilst leaving the surrounding collagen and elastic fibres unharmed. By creating a temporary vacuum or ‘freezing’, fat cells are destroyed and then eliminated via the body’s own natural lymphatic system. It can be used to treat the tummy and love handles, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees, arms, buttocks and back fat.

Even with a careful diet and exercise, stubborn pockets of pesky fat can be hard to remove. Velashape III combines three modalities – vacuum, bi-polar radio-frequency and infrared light to heat low lying collagen and elastic fibres which reshape and model the body contours. Localised circulation is increased, cellulite is visibly reduced and there is a reduction in the circumference of the area being treated. It also helps to relieve aches and pains and has a noticeable lifting effect.

Endermologie treatment involves the use of rollers and suction which get to work on softening tissue, increasing circulation, breaking down fat and eliminating accumulated water to tone and firm the skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite and smooth away lumps and bumps giving a more refined silhouette.

If you are looking for something stronger, VASER Lipo is an alternative to traditional liposuction with much less downtime or recovery and with fewer risks involved. Known as ‘Lunchtime Lipo’, VASER can be carried out in a short time and is useful for targeting stubborn pockets of fat such as back rolls, tummy pouches and saddle bags. It can also be used to carefully sculpt the body, giving more youthful contours.

Exilis Elite uses ultrasound and controlled heating to heat collagen fibres deep in the skin causing collagen remodelling and skin tightening. The heating effect also stimulates lymphatic drainage and localised metabolism which has a detoxifying effect, as well as a reduction in fatty deposits. It can be used almost anywhere on the body including the face where it is excellent at reducing sagging jowls and giving a lifted appearance.

The award winning EndyMedPRO 3DEEP Radiofrequency Skin Tightening treatment is a relaxing, pain-free treatment which has an immediate and long-term tightening and lifting of the face and neck and can even be used on the delicate skin around the eye area to reduce under-eye sagging and improve the contour of the eyes. Wrinkles and lines are reduced, skin is tighter, and the jaw area becomes more defined.

Turn back the years in minutes with the Clear Lift Laser Facelift, a no-downtime, no-pain facial rejuvenation treatment which creates tiny areas of controlled damage to the skin, stimulating the natural healing and rejuvenation processes. The treatment helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as pigmentation and melasma. Skin is tightened and lifted and left with a more youthful glow. Get ready for the compliments!

Our skilled therapists and medical team can advise the best treatments for your specific needs and create a tailor-made treatment package to achieve your body goals.

Winter skin damage SOS

Winter can really take its toll on our skin – cold external temperatures and central heating as well as over indulgence during the festive season can leave skin de-hydrated, irritated and inflamed. It is therefore even more important to keep up a good skincare regime with the best treatments and products to protect and repair.

We love the Jan Marini WOW peel which uses an effective combination of glycolic acid, retinol, vitamin C and peptides to slough away dead skin cells, promote skin cell turnover, plump and strengthen the skin and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Skin tone is improved and it is smoother, more hydrated and radiant. An ideal post-holiday treatment that provides long-lasting benefits.

The Guinot Hydradermie treatment is an excellent treatment for calming and soothing skin using a combination of a light galvanic current with massage and active ingredients to lift, calm and hydrate the skin. Oil secretion and break-outs, a problem especially associated with this time of year, are reduced and skin is more balanced. The perfect trouble-shooter treatment!

In recent years, our understanding of the positive benefits of stem cells has led to the development of a number of treatments and products to help protect and repair the skin. Our VIP O-PLACENTA Stem Cell facial works in combination with daily use of the stem cell products to deliver bio-active stem cells to the dermis of the face where they stimulate collagen, glycoproteins and elastic fibres in order to strengthen and help re-model the skin, minimizing lines and wrinkles and improving the texture and tone of the skin. An excellent regime to start the year for glowing and healthy skin.

Light therapy has long been heralded as a skin saviour, and our Demalux LED therapy is no exception. Red light accelerates the natural healing processes of the skin to reduce lines, wrinkles and scars, as well as strengthening and hydrating the skin. Blue light is excellent to help combat acne, rosacea, psoriasis and inflammation, providing an anti-bacterial blast to help heal and soothe skin. Infrared light helps the absorption of both blue and red light as well as strengthening the skin. In addition, light therapy is a deeply relaxing treatment which leaves you with a sense of well-being and calm.

To lift a sagging face and provide a subtle rejuvenation without undergoing surgery, the Thread Lift might be the perfect new year gift to yourself.

For a quick and highly effective boost to the skin, body and mind, try a Vitamin IV Infusion. Choose from a range of different options to suit your needs from an anti-ageing super-boost to a detox special as well as an infusion to help with weight loss. The infusions deliver a potent dose of vitamins, minerals and amino-acids directly into the blood stream, the levels of which can easily be depleted through stress, excesses and illness throughout the winter months. Many patients notice an immediate improvement in their well-being and skin.

We wish you a happy, healthy and radiant New Year!

Say goodbye to sagging skin

As we age, levels of collagen and elastin fibres in our skin gradually deteriorate and we notice the tell-tale signs of ageing such as sagging or lax skin and the increase in lines and wrinkles. As well as having a healthy, anti-oxidant rich diet, not smoking and minimising sun exposure, there are also a number of treatments which can help to stimulate collagen and elastin within the skin, to tighten and lift and therefore reduce sagging.

EndyMed Pro3Deep Radiofrequency skin tightening is an excellent non-invasive, no downtime and no pain treatment which works to tighten existing collagen and stimulate the production of more. Skin is lifted and tightened as well as refreshed. EndyMed can be used all over the body, including the delicate eye area, thanks to the innovative iFine hand-piece which allows the therapist to work close to the eyes resulting in smoother, tighter skin, a reduction in sagging of upper and lower lids, as well as a less hooded appearance. EndyMed is also perfect to reduce jowls and sagging cheeks.

Another non-surgical answer to help combat ageing eyes is the use of the Accor Plasma Pen which creates tiny amounts of controlled damage over the area, stimulating a highly effective healing response which increases collagen levels, tightens and lifts the skin, reduces wrinkling and sagging and results in a refreshed, brighter, more open and youthful appearance of the eyes.

If you are looking for a quick ‘lunchtime’ fix, the ClearLift Laser Facelift is the ideal treatment to take years off your face in minutes. The laser creates tiny ablative areas which then kick start the natural healing process of the skin, resulting in lifting, tightening and firming of the skin, as well as a reduction in pigmentation and wrinkles.

The award winning Exilis Elite is a must for those looking to tighten lax or sagging skin. Using a combination of high energy, mono polar, radio frequency and ultrasound, Exilis works below the surface of the skin to cause deep thermal heating, which causes collagen fibres to contract and new collagen fibres to be produced. This contraction causes a tightening and lifting effect, as well as rejuvenation. The heat also increases local metabolism, resulting in a break down of fat and fatty deposits. It can be used on the face and all over the body. A true winner!

Velashape III is the perfect non-invasive treatment for body contouring and lifting. Using a combination of vacuum, infra-red and bipolar frequency, Velashape causes a deep heating of fat, connective tissue and collagen fibres. This helps to increase circulation and lymphatic drainage to eliminate fluid, break down fat, and speed up collagen deposition. The new collagen helps to tighten and lift skin, giving an overall reduction in circumference as well as a firmer, more youthful appearance of the skin. No wonder it is a firm favourite!

Why not speak to our therapists today to find out the most suitable treatment for you and say bye-bye to sagging skin!

Post Summer Skin SOS

Days spent in the sun can be good for total relaxation and rejuvenation, but too much sun exposure can wreak havoc with our skin, causing pigmentation and sun-spots as well as premature ageing. So here at Courthouse Clinics, we have collated the best treatments to help reverse the damage caused by the sun, and return your skin to a more youthful, radiant and healthy glow.

The ClearLift laser Facelift uses laser to create tiny areas of damage which trigger a healing response by the skin, resulting in a reduction of pigmentation, melasma, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as lifting and firming. Since the laser targets the skin below the surface, there is no downtime, pain or discomfort and the treatment can be carried out in as little as thirty minutes, hence its moniker the ‘lunchtime facelift’.

Harmony IPL Skin Rejuvenation tackles pigmentation directly by the controlled use of pulsed light, which reaches under the surface layers of the skin to damage the area of pigmentation or blood vessel, which is then eliminated by the body. Effects are apparent after several treatments when the skin appears smoother with less pigmentation and fewer lines and wrinkles.

TheeDermastamp takes medical micro-needling to a new level, by safely creating thousands of microchannels in the skin to induce healing and creation of new collagen and elastic fibres. This means that skin is rejuvenated, pigmentation and scarring is reduced, lines and wrinkles are minimised, and overall texture and tone of the skin is improved. The perfect post summer treatment!

If a pampering peel treatment is more your style, then our Jan Marini Retinol WOW Peel might be just up your street! Using a powerful combination of ingredients including glycolic acid to stimulate cell turnover, retinol and peptides to stimulate fibroblasts, and Vitamin C as an antioxidant, the peel helps to remove dead and dry skin cells, eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, promote smoothness and increase hydration. Skin is left looking seriously WOW!

Our ever popular Hydrafacial treatments work to promote overall skin health, with a combination of exfoliation, hydration, cleansing, extraction and detoxification. In particular, the Hydra-Bright treatment helps to decrease brown spots and pigmentation and fights against the damaging effects of free radicals, making it ideal for those who have had too much sun exposure.

The Image Skincare 02 Oxygen Lift is also the ideal way to hydrate the skin deeply, exfoliating and oxygenating dull, tired or dehydrated skin using a combination of a plant derived enzyme peel to exfoliate and stimulate collagen production, an oxygenating masque to deliver oxygen into the skin and a stem cell enhancer to repair and rejuvenate leaving skin looking refreshed and glowing.

 

Your therapist will carry out a detailed consultation to guide you to the best treatment that suits your skin and your concerns, so you can enjoy healthy, radiant and youthful skin.
