The ageing process affects us all in different ways and at different rates. Many people are happy with how they look, and we think that this is great!
However, many of us feel more confident when we look our best, and The Berkshire Medical Practice is pleased to offer a variety of Cosmetic Medicine treatments to help achieve this.
Over time, our skin changes in line with our age. This change can be accelerated by factors such as poor diet, smoking, and excess alcohol but irrespective of this there is a natural loss of skin elasticity which partly relates to a reduction in the collagen in our skin. This is exacerbated by the actions of certain muscles which work to cause wrinkles in the skin (frown lines are a classic example of this process).
At The Berkshire Medical Practice your treatment will be planned and performed by a registered Doctor that has specific training in Facial Aesthetics.
Anti-wrinkle treatments work by relaxing these muscles thereby "smoothing" out the skin. Careful administration of such treatments can lead to a more youthful, less "tired" appearance. It is possible to treat a variety of different areas on the face with such injections and The Berkshire Medical Practice's Doctors are expertly trained to administer these treatments, giving excellent results.
We can additionally use dermal fillers in some areas of the face to increase definition or add volume to areas that lack body and fullness.
Lips and the area surrounding the mouth are classic examples of this and our Doctors are expertly trained in procedures such as lip augmentation to achieve an enhanced but natural look that can make you feel more confident in terms of how you look.
We are proud to announce that we are one of the few centres able to offer "Heart Lips" by Dr Bob Khanna - this is an advanced technique used to create a more volumized heart shaped lip.
Training and Product Choice
How you look is important to us - and we take all cosmetic treatments seriously. We would not feel comfortable treating you without knowing that our training was of the absolute highest standard.
Our clinicians have been trained at the respected and reknowned Professor Khanna institue in Reading (under Professor Khanna himself). Professor Khanna is a Professor of Facial Aesthetics at the University of Seville and has over 30 publications in national and international journals.
In terms of materials, we use only the best materials available that are specifically selected to provide the best results. We genuinely believe that user cheaper, inferior products leads to worse results and, even more importantly, increases the risk of problems such as infection. We do not believe in false economies - this means that we won't always be the cheapest option available but you can rest assured that you will be receiving the best treatment.
