If you have dry skin fine lines will appear earlier than people who have a more oily skin.  Even with a good skin care regime, if you suffer with a dry skin type you will see laughter lines appearing beside your eyes and other natural lines on your face deepening.

Dermal fillers are a safe, non-surgical way to turn back the clock a few years by smoothing out the lines that develop over time.  It’s a much less invasive treatment than a surgical face lift and doesn’t involve the pain of surgery, the risk that always accompanies a general anaesthetic or considerable time in recovery and scarring

Very few people have a perfect skin, most people have blemishes, as you get older lines deepen and, if you’ve suffered from skin conditions such as acne, you may have scars.  If the condition of your skin makes you feel self-conscious you don’t have to ‘grin and bear it’; that’s where laser skin resurfacing really comes into its own.

Those words ‘unsightly fat’ conjure up jiggly, flabby areas – and, even apparently slim people can suffer from retained fat.  Fat removal isn’t always just about dieting carefully and working out regularly, sometimes you need a helping hand.

When how you look is important you know that, unless you’re very, very lucky, it’s going to take work.  You need to watch what you eat, take regular exercise, drink plenty of water and watch that waistline like a hawk.  The challenge is that sometimes, no matter how much effort you put in, the results fall short of what you want.

If you’re a woman visible hair on the face is, frankly, embarrassing.  Plucking, waxing, depilatory creams and shaving are only ever a temporary solution.  Electrolysis and most laser systems are painful – so what can you do?

If you find that exposing your middle is, frankly, embarrassing you are probably suffering from either love handles round your waist or muffin top – that unattractive roll that sits over your waistband. 

You don’t have to be overweight to suffer from these annoying chubby bits, they’re typical of fatty deposits that, once acquired seem to be impossible to shift!

If you’ve just launched a get fit, trim down and look fabulous campaign, it’s easy to get discouraged if you don’t get the results you’ve been hoping for.  It doesn’t matter if it’s an attempt to get rid of a few over-indulgence generated pounds or kilos, or your annual ‘get ready for the summer’ regime, there are often areas that resist your efforts to banish the bulges.

It’s impossible to avoid the fact that as you get older your skin loses its elasticity.  The constant movement of your facial muscles creates lines where once the skin bounced back to its smooth appearance.  They’re called laughter lines, but whatever you call them, they’re visible evidence of the years passing - but you don't have to put up with this; a dermal filler will help to restore a more youthful look.

Botulinum Toxin – often referred to as Botox – has been around for many years and is popular with celebrities as a way to keep their youthful looks and remove the lines that result from aging.  It’s accessible for everyone, but in the wrong hands you can end up with that ‘frozen face’ look instead of simply looking younger, fresher and losing those frown and laughter lines.

Botulinum Toxin (we call it ‘Botox’, but that is actually a trade name) has a number of applications, both medical and cosmetic.  Let’s look at the cosmetic uses and how it can help.

If you’re looking for a way to smooth out some of the lines that have appeared on your face, ‘Botox’ may be something you’ve considered.  However, it doesn’t always get the best press and we’ve all seen celebrities who have overdone it, or had poor treatments that make their faces look frozen, so it may seem something of a risk.  If you're thinking about it - you want to be sure you're making the right decision.

Many women really want to improve the appearance of their lips but are understandably very scared about looking like a duck, especially after the well publicised disasters effecting Leslie Ash and Pete Burns to name a couple of unfortunate celebrities.

There are generally 3 types of requests for lip fillers at Riverbanks Clinc, voted Best Cosmetic Clinic in the UK since 2009.

Boost Lip Volume Remove smokers lines Define the lip border & reduce lipstick bleed

Younger patients tend to go for a large boost in lip volume, and with these treatments there is generally a bit of swelling which can last for a couple of days, depending on which dermal filler is used. At Riverbanks we only recommend using hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Emervel or Restylane. Each of these brands has a wide range of lip fillers designed to give results you want.
