Facing the world after cosmetic treatment

Our top tips on what to expect after you’ve had a cosmetic treatment, and how to feel confident when facing people in your normal routine.

It doesn’t have to be a secret

Cosmetic treatments are incredibly popular with tens of thousands of people in the UK choosing to get treatments every year. More and more people, including celebrities are talking openly about their treatments so there is no need to feel that you can’t too. Talking openly with friends and family can be a great way to relieve any tension you’re feeling both before and after treatment. However, if you’d rather keep it to yourself that’s absolutely fine too!

Make sure you give yourself enough time to recover

All treatments are different and each individual’s recovery time will vary, however if you can get a good idea of the average down time of your treatment this will help you make better plans for your recovery.

Subtle means successful

At Snowberry Lane Clinic we pride ourselves on ensuring our treatments give subtle natural looking results that aim to boost our confidence. Not making more drastic changes means your treatment is more likely to go unnoticed.

Talk to someone

With our treatments that are more intensive like Alevere Weight Loss Therapy you might want to talk to someone before, during or after your treatment. Alevere requires time and investment from yourself as you lose a significant amount of weight. It is designed as a lifestyle change rather than a diet, but this can be very challenging. We have a Psychotherapist on staff who you can make an appointment with to help council you through these changes. This service is not exclusive to Alevere so if you’d like an appointment with our Psychotherapist please just ask.

Call us if you need help

Each individual recovers differently so even our best predictions can’t be accurate. If you are feeling like your recovery is taking longer than expected or you have any concerns please give us a call on 01225 700072.

Laser Vein Treatment FAQ

Thread or spider veins are commonly very thin veins near the surface of the skin that are normally red, blue or purplish in colour. These veins can appear anywhere on the body, most commonly the face, thighs and calves.

How does laser vein therapy work?

Laser vein therapy works by targeting the treatment area with a focused beam of heat energy, this heat causes the vein to coagulate and seal. The vessel is then broken down and is able to be reabsorbed by the body over the next 4-6 weeks.

How do I prepare for treatment?

The main thing to take into consideration before treatment is to avoid sun exposure, as we cannot treat tanned skinned as it could effect the pigmentation of the skin. On the day of your treatment the area needs to be clean and free from moisturisers or make-up. It is best to wear clothing that is comfortable and makes for easy access to the treatment area.

How many treatments will I need and what will the cost be?

This is something that varies from individual to individual. The first step is to come in for a consultation, and it is within this meeting with a practitioner that these variants can be defined.

You will need to allow four to six weeks between treatments, so it is important to bear this in mind, it is not something that will be complete in one session on one day.

Is treatment painful?

Clients do report a level of mild discomfort, although we do our best to counteract this with anaesthetic cream and the laser handpiece itself issues a cooling pulse to counteract the heat.

Does laser treatment get rid of the veins forever?

Technically the veins that have been collapsed using laser treatment cannot rebuild and reappear, however, spider veins can reoccur in the same place meaning more treatments could be needed in the future.

What should I expect after laser therapy?

After the procedure, the area treated might be a little tender and appear raised and reddened although this should fade a few hours after treatment.

Can I go back to work after laser therapy?

There is no downtime from laser treatment, so normal activities can be resumed immediately. However the area needs to heal so it is strongly recommended that you avoid the sun and very hot baths or showers in the weeks following your treatment.

How long does it take to see the results?

After the laser therapy, the veins normally change colour from a dark blue or purple to a lighter red colour, after which they often fade in two to six weeks. Please note this might take more than one treatment to achieve.

Medically Assisted Weight Loss

Earlier this week ITV featured a documentary called Lisa Riley’s Baggy Body Club. The show centred on Lisa Riley a TV personality who was left with a vast amount of loose skin after losing 12 stone over 18 months. She found that there were lots of people in a similar situation, whom after making incredible weight loss achievements now faced a barrier to self-confidence that they weren’t expecting.

Losing any amount of weight to improve your health is an incredible feat that should absolutely be celebrated, and it’s a real tragedy that people are made to feel like their skin is unsightly. Lisa elected to undergo surgery to remove over a stone of loose skin from her body, but this is not something that many people want to do or can afford.

Here at Snowberry Lane Clinic we offer a weight loss programme called Alevere, that uses a combination of medically designed meal replacements and treatments to help smooth and tighten the skin as the weight it lost. Our aim is to mitigate against the situation that people find themselves in, so they can reach weight loss milestones without having a negative impact after the goal is achieved. We have an in house Psychotherapist who is on hand for appointments throughout your programme or after you’ve completed the plan as we’re very aware that food can be deeply connected to emotions.

To give a brief overview of how it all works: Alevere is a medically supervised diet and treatment programme, designed by medical professionals to maximise weight loss without negatively impacting the rest of the body. The programme comprises an initial consultation with a Doctor, as well as monitoring blood tests and monthly reviews with a Doctor to ensure that you are safe and healthy and burning fat rather than muscle. As a rough guide, the Alevere programme aims for a weight reduction of 6 to 12 kilos per month.

The diet plan involves changes that will see you approaching food in a different way, with the focus on resetting your eating habits and educating you on how to eat healthily. The body contouring treatments help to mobilise stubborn fat so that it can be removed naturally by the body, as well as stimulating your lymphatic system. Lymph glands are all over your body, their primary function is to catch and trap unwanted particles flowing through your system that can then be removed by the body. Being significantly overweight can prevent lymph nodes from working properly, especially around the joints, Alevere treatments target the lymph nodes to help them drain and ease this.

Alevere weight loss therapy aims to support you throughout your weight loss journey and beyond, everyone who has lost a significant amount of weight knows that the hardest thing is keeping the weight off. We run a maintenance programme to ensure that after you have reached your target weight you do not feel daunted by life after the programme.
