Rejuvenate Your Skin Without Surgery

Rejuvenate Your Skin Without Surgery Main Image

Here at Snowberry Lane Clinic we strive to lead the way in providing the most highly advanced cosmetic treatments for our patients. One area we work particularly hard to fulfil is our commitment to minimally-invasive treatments. For over a decade now, our clinic has been at the forefront when it comes to giving our patients the chance to make positive improvements in their lives with minimised risks and downtime.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin softening procedure that uses micro-crystals to improve the appearance, texture and feel of the skin. It is commonly used on the face, an area which itself has softer skin than other areas of the body. The crystals aim to rejuvenate the top layer of skin on the face, and in turn promote the natural growth of collagen underneath the surface.

How does it work?

Unlike traditional facial exfoliators we try at home or at a salon, which only work to remove dirt from the very top of our skin, Microdermabrasion is a thorough and much more intense way of cleaning our pores. Imagine rubbing a wipe over the face. We know that it removes makeup and dirt from the surface layer, but it doesn’t do much to really get in our pores and ensure they’re naturally clean and healthy.

Passing medical grade crystals over the pores allows for uniform cleansing and targeting of problem areas. A natural activation of new skin cell growth is always our main aim when performing this treatment. A gentle abrasion of the upper surface gets the body to react naturally and safely. Patients with minor acne and blackheads around the upper forehead and sides of the nose can benefit greatly from this treatment.

What are the results?

We commonly find that patients with fine lines and blemishes benefit most from Microdermabrasion, sometimes noticing visible results from the first treatment session. Because the skin is not being damaged or broken, downtime is minimised.

Put an end to Excessive Sweating

Put an end to Excessive Sweating Main Image

Excessive sweating known in the medical field as Hyperhidrosis can cause people stress and embarrassment when antiperspirants don’t work and clothing can’t hide it, but you don’t have to suffer in silence. Here at Snowberry Lane Clinic we offer Botox to reduce excessive underarm sweating.

How does it work?

The treatment works by blocking the nerves that stimulate your overactive sweat glands. Botox injections would be delivered directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, preventing your nerves from triggering your sweat glands thus reducing the amount that you sweat. However, Botox only prevents sweating in the specific area where it’s injected.

What can I expect during the treatment?

The practitioner will inject the Botox just below the surface of the skin using a very fine needle in a grid pattern around your area of concern. You can return to your daily routine straight away with no down time. In some cases a follow-up appointment is required to check in and touch up any missed areas.

What can I expect after the treatment?

Botox is a highly effective treatment for excessive sweating. For many people, it drastically improves their quality of life. It commonly takes up to 1-2 weeks for the treatment to take effect and reduce sweating in the treated area. Botox is a temporary treatment, meaning you’ll need to maintain the effects of treatment every 4-14 months

If you’d like to know more or want to speak to a member of the team about treatment for Hyperhidrosis please give us a call on 01225 700072.

How can we help with Hyperpigmentation?

How can we help with Hyperpigmentation Main image

Hyperpigmentation is where the pigments that control skin colour, overwork and leave you with patches that are caused through overproduction of melanin. They aren’t harmful, but can be a knock to your confidence if you are experiencing it in an exposed area such as your face or neck.

How can we help?

The main treatments we have for brown spots and hyperpigmentation skin are microdermabrasion and Obagi.

Microdermabrasion is a treatment that uses medically designed crystals to gently exfoliate the skin, removing old skin cells and revealing rejuvenated, glowing skin cells beneath.

Obagi programmes use medically designed skin care products that increase cellular turnover. Deep layers of undamaged skin tissue are encouraged to come to the surface to help bring uniformity to the skin. The Obagi Blue Peel is able to not only give skin a refreshed and youthful appearance but is a great treatment for addressing Hyperpigmentation by rebalancing the levels of oestrogen in the face.

Eliminate your Tattoo Regret

Eliminate your Tattoo Regret Main Image

It might not surprise you to hear that 75% of people regret at least one of their tattoos (source: https://www.healthline.com/health/tattoo-regret) You might be reading this because you yourself have a tattoo that you’re looking to get rid of, fortunately we might be able to help.

We are experts in removing black ink tattoos with dedicated laser treatments. There are a number of factors involved in judging how successful the process will be. These include:

  • Size
  • Colour
  • The Ink
  • The age of the tattoo

How does the process work?

During your initial consultation, our practitioners will be able to assess the tattoo and can give you and idea of how successful the treatment could be for you.

During Treatment:

When the laser is passed over the tattoo, it breaks down the ink into tiny particles that are able to be absorbed and removed by your body’s natural drainage system.

After Treatmet:

It is common to experience redness, swelling, blistering and pin point bleeding, which should be manageable and clear up relatively quickly. However, it is incredibly important to follow our After Care Guidelines to avoid any further complications.

What will my tattoo look like after treatment:

Tattoo removal is not a one off treatment, depending on each individual it will usually take several treatments to be effective. In some cases all of the ink can be broken down leaving little trace of the tattoo. However, in most cases clients decide to complete their treatment programme when enough ink has been removed for the tattoo’s appearance to be virtually unnoticeable or so that it would be easy to cover up.

Lip Enhancement

Lip Enhancement Main Image

Maintaining lips that look and feel full and voluminous can become increasingly difficult as you age. Over time this loss of volume can cause lack of definition around the edge of the lips and Cupid’s bow area. There are many quick fixes that can be achieved with some clever make-up to mask this, but if you’re looking for a longer term solution we offer treatments to suit each individual’s requirements.

For fine lines around the lips and some loss of volume we would look at using Dermal fillers. The filler is injected under the surface of the skin helping to add volume and create a plumper appearance. It only takes a small amount of filler to make a noticeable difference to the appearance of the lip line. You can compare our before and after photos on the dermal filler page here.

One of the benefits of Dermal Fillers is that the products we use include a light anaesthetic, minimising discomfort during treatment. A further benefit is that fillers last from 6 to 18 months.

We love to speak with prospective patients and if you’d like to receive a call from Snowberry Lane about Lip Enhancement in the Wiltshire area, you can leave your contact information here.

Radiosurgery Snapshot

Radiosurgery Snapshot Main Image

Snowberry Lane Clinic is one of the UK’s leading Cosmetic Clinics for Radiofrequency Surgery. We aim to provide an unrivalled level of care for patients who wish to use this treatment path to help deal with a wide number of issues. In this week’s blog post we’ll describe where we think this treatment can work best.

Treatment comes in the form of a high frequency radio waves passed along a very thin wire. This wave of energy can be used to remove moles and skin lesions by cutting the skin gently whilst closing the blood vessels as it works. As the treatment seals the skin as it works this promotes faster healing times, and in most cases, mitigates the need for stitches.

Radiosurgery is a quick and relatively pain free procedure, as the area to be treated is numbed with anaesthetic prior to treatment. Patients often give positive feedback because the lack of scarring makes it appropriate for use in many areas. For individuals with moles and lesions on visible areas like the forehead, cheeks and neck, Radiosurgery is the ideal treatment.
