A nose job over a cup of tea …….

The nose is the only part of your face that protrudes from your face. It is the most defining feature of the face that impacts all the other features of the face.

Ever looked at your nose and thought, ‘can this look better?’

If you’re not keen for surgery and repeated usage of fillers again and again to correct deformities, the nose thread lift maybe an option for you.

Choose Y-KO or HIKO.

 

Nose Thread Lift

 

Where are these techniques from?

These were invented and developed in South Korea. The typical Asian nose has a low bridge, short nose, an upturned nose tip that is bulbous and harbors a short collumella. The nose thread lift may correct these problems. It works well correcting defects in the Caucasian nose.

 

What are Nose Thread Lift threads?

PDO stands for Polydioxanone. Its material has been used in surgical sutures for a very long time in surgeries.

 

 

How does the Nose Thread Lift work?

The threads that are placed delicately into the nose dissolve in the body by 9 months. They work by mechanically lifting tissues with their barbs and as the threads remain in situ, they stimulate natural collagen production by your own tissues. This means that the results of the nose thread lift will continue to improve, making it more beneficial as you age.

 

 

How long does the Nose Thread Lift last?

1-2 years

 

How long does a Nose Thread Lift take?

It takes about 30 minutes to carry out the procedure. What takes a little longer is the consultation and injecting the anaesthesia in certain areas to make it pain free thereafter.

 

Is a Nose Thread Lift painful?

The only discomfort you may feel is when anaesthetic is being administered. It is delivered through 4 tiny injections smaller than a insulin syringe.

 

How is the Nose Thread Lift carried out?

A thorough consultation is required to ensure it is safe and that this is the right procedure for you.

Then several anatomical markings and measurements will be taken and marked.

A small amount of local anaesthetic is injected in and around the nose to numb the area.

A small puncture will made with a needle in the tip of the nose to give access for threads to be inserted.

Multiple threads are inserted in various angles and layers to achieve the result that you desire.

Is the Nose Thread Lift procedure for you?

If you are looking for a correction of deformities without the risks with surgery, this is an option you should look into.

If you are a person who only gets HA filler treatment and are tired of the downtime.

If you are a person who is not satisfied with HA filler.

If you are a person who wants minimal invasive treatment.

If you are a person who needs conclusive results.

If you are a person who is looking for an affordable solution.

If you are a person who is concerned with the safety issue of HA fillers.

This procedure may enhance your nose to achieve a:

– sharper and sleeker nose tip;

– sharper and slimmer nose bridge;

– straighter nose bridge;

– higher nose bridge;

– defined nose bridge;

– narrowing of ala flares.

 

 

 

What can be obtained with a Nose Thread Lift?

– Higher or longer noses bridge

– Straight nose bridge for deviated noses

– Sharper and sleeker nose bridge

– Narrower nose tip

– Tip rotation correction

– Narrower ala of the nose

What are the advantages of Nose Thread Lift over HA Dermal Fillers?

HA Fillers have an affinity to splay sideways and widen the nose bridge.

The threads are made of a soft material, which doesn’t penetrate the vital vessels in the nose nor migrate from position of placement which prevents severe inflammation or necrosis of nose.

Immediate augmentation result by placing multiple threads.

An approximately 20% fat reduction caused by the threads.

Leaves no scars, and looks natural.

Uniquely barbed polydioxanone thread gives dramatic result within 10 minutes.

Exlcusion of any incisions.

Short downtime.

Stimulates patient’s intrinsic healing process.

Faster Recovery

Can last approximately twice as long as fillers with the added advantage of stimulation of one’s own collagen.

 

What are the risks of Nose Thread Lift?

Once the threads are placed, they can’t be dissolved. They will require surgical removal with delicate extrusion.

The nose thread lifts are unable to correct nasal dorsal humps or bumps. Sometimes this has to be combined with HA Fillers for a better result.

 

What are the side effects of Nose Thread Lift?

Side effects are rare, mild bruising and swelling might occur, but this usually fades quickly (you can minimise bruising by avoiding medication aforementioned before the procedure).

Swelling may occur and usually subsides within 7-10 days.

Redness, mild tenderness, itchiness and firmness around the injection sites are common but usually subsides within 7-10 days.

Local infection (please adhere to the post-treatment advice to avoid infection, antibiotics might be needed in such cases).

Asymmetry, threads being felt under the skin, thread migration and thread breakage are other complications which have been observed and may occur.

 

How much does a Nose Thread Lift cost?

Depending on the numerous number of issues that need to be addressed, prices usually start at £1,500

 

Nose Thread Lift Post Procedure Instructions?

Avoid drinking alcohol or partaking in strenuous exercise, as it may result in additional bruising for 72 hours.

Keep your head elevated at least 30 degrees for the first three nights.

You may apply ice or cold towel to the surgical sites for the first 24 hours. (Apply for 20 min on and 20 min off in the period of time)

Avoid any direct pressure to the face and area where the threads were placed for  3 weeks after procedure has been performed. (Example: sleeping on your face, known as the face down position, etc.)

You may wash your face. Be careful when washing your face near the nose area where the punctures were made.

Until the swelling and redness have resolved, avoid intense heat in the treated area(s). This includes sunbathing, tanning, saunas, hot tubs, or hot wax.

To help alleviate bruising, we recommend taking Arnica or Bromelain, eating fresh pineapple, and applying ice to the area.

To help alleviate swelling, we recommend an antihistamine during the day, like Zyrtec or Claritin, and Benedryl at night.

Sunscreen and makeup can be applied after 4 hours and you may use a gentle cleanser on the area.

Avoid planning any formal events for at least 7 days following the procedure to allow for adequate healing.

You may gently wash your treatment areas however avoid rubbing, scrubbing, facials, waxing and laser treatments for 7 – 10 days following treatment.

Apply SPF50 or higher and avoid excessive sun exposure to prevent hyperpigmentation.

What no man wants to talk about prematurley

Everyone has had some issue or the other. A malfunction at the wrong time or as one ages, a malfunction most of the time.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t a solution for this. But there is a golden rule, if you don’t ask for help then how are you going to get any help?

 

Erectile Dysfunction (Premature Ejaculation)

 

What is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation (Erectile Dysfunction)  is a common ejaculatory problem. It occurs before even sexual intercourse or within seconds of sexual intercourse. In other words, ejaculation occurs before the man wants it to happen. It may occur before or after beginning foreplay or intercourse. Some men experience a lot of personal distress because of this condition. Whilst some men have episodes every now and then, if you’re finding that 50% of the time your experiencing pre-mature ejaculation, it is about time that you did something. You don’t have to suffer in silence.

 

Is Premature Ejaculation common?

It affects 1 in 5 men i.e 20% of the male population who have been affected at some point in their life.

 

Why does it happen?

There has been a few known factors which contribute to premature ejaculation. Psychological problems such as stress, depression and other factors that affect mental, emotional and biological factors can make some men more prone to experience premature ejaculation.

 

How do you know if you have Premature Ejaculation?

The key symptoms of premature ejaculation include:

  –  Ejaculation with little sexual stimulation and with poor or little control;

  –  Decreased sexual pleasure because of poor control over ejaculation

  –  Feelings of guilt, embarrassment or frustration

Premature ejaculation is diagnosed based on your history and any underlying causes. A thorough sexual history will have to be discussed. Be frank and open. The more your Cosmetic Surgeon knows, the better they can help you.

If your sexual history fails to reveal significant mental or emotional factors that may contribute to premature ejaculation, your doctor may want to examine you. Your doctor may examine your prostate or do neurological tests (tests of your nervous system) to determine if there is a physical problem that could be causing premature ejaculation.

 

How long does Premature Ejaculation last?

Sometimes, premature ejaculation is self-limiting i.e they go away on their own. Some may last a few weeks to a few months, others longer.

Working to relieve the underlying issues may help the situation to improve. Some men respond to treatment promptly, while others struggle with this problem over a prolonged period. Treatment is available and it does work.

 

How do you prevent Premature Ejaculation?

There is no known way to prevent premature ejaculation. However, you should maintain a healthy attitude toward sex. If you experience feelings of anxiety, guilt or frustration about your sex life, consider seeking help.

Anyone can experience sexual problems. If you experience premature ejaculation, don’t blame yourself or feel inadequate. Try speaking openly with your partner to avoid miscommunication. There are treatments available.

 

What are the treatments for Premature Ejaculation?

There are a number of things you can try yourself before seeking medical help. The outlook is good when treatment is sought.

It can sometimes help to:

–  masturbate priot to having sex an hour or two before

–  use a thicker condom to decrease sensation However, these techniques may interfere with the  pleasure experienced during sex.

–  take a deep breath to briefly shut down the ejaculatory reflex

–  have sex with your partner on top (to allow them to pull away when you are close to ejaculating)

–  take breaks during sex and think about something boring.

The use of topical anaesthetics can help to decrease sensation but may be transferred and absorbed to the vagina, causing decreased sensation to both you and your partner.

The use of certain medications is another which needs to be taken regularly. They take time to work.

Behavioural and Couples therapy are others.

 

What is the average sex cycle?

In one study an average time from the start of sexual intercourse to ejaculation took 5 minutes 30 seconds.

 

What else can be done long term?

If you’re tired of taking daily medications, or applying anesthetic creams prior to intercourse and not enjoying sexual intercourse as you or your partner should, there maybe one longer term solution for you.

Hyaluronic Acid (Dermal Fillers). Its important to realise they have an enormous role to play.

The results of using dermal fillers in the glans penis suggest that glandular augmentation with injectable Hyaluronic Acid gel is a safe and effective modality to reduce sensory of glans penis.

In studies the ejaculatory time from start to finish increased significantly.

 

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes 45 mins to perform in the clinic. It is only performed after a thorough consultation is carried out by our Cosmetic Surgeon and if it is deemed safe for you. You should allot an hour from start to finish on consultation and treatment. Some cases may take longer and every case is assessed on merits.

 

Is it painful?

We always use a local anaesthetic to numb the area which is left for 20-30 minutes or a nerve block to numb the area faster. Thereafter you will feel that something is happening but you should not feel any pain per se.

 

How long does this procedure last?

This can last upto 6-12 months. At the 6 month mark the HA fillers start to breakdown and by the 12th month mark they are completley dissolved and absorbed by the body. We would recommend a touch up procedure at the 6-8th month mark to maintain the effectiveness.

 

How much does this cost?

Prices start at £1,500 upwards. A final price can only be determined upon consultation.

 

How do I prepare for this procedure?

Keep the area dry and clean.

Avoid blood thinning over-the-counter medications such as Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, and Aleve one week prior to injections.

Avoid supplements, including St. John’s Wort, gingko biloba, primrose oil, garlic, ginseng, and Vitamin E for one week prior to injections.

Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or hair removal cream on the area to be treated for 2 days prior.

Do not drink alcoholic beverages 24 hours prior.

Start taking Arnica two days prior to the procedure. (This is not required, but will help to lessen bruising).

It isn’t advisable to use dermal fillers if you are allergic to any ingredients, or suffer from neurological disorders.

 

Are there any side effects?

You will have swelling and redness from a few days and may last for weeks. This starts to settle after a few days and is normally gone in 3–4 weeks. To help alleviate swelling, we recommend an antihistamine during the day, like Zyrtec or Claritin, and Benedryl at night.

You may have some discomfort but this is not usually severe.

little bruising is expected, especially if blood thinning agents such as aspirin, Ibuprofen (Nurofen or Advil), fish or krill oil, flaxseed oil or multivitamins have been ingested in the previous two weeks. To help alleviate bruising, we recommend taking Arnica or Bromelain, eating fresh pineapple, and applying ice to the area.

If there is a visible bump, you can massage the area. Depending on the areas treated and the product used, you may feel “firmness.” These areas will soften and settle with time (usually 1-2 weeks).

Whilst not everyone experiences these side effects, they have been reported and you should be informed that they can occur:

–  Recurrence of premature ejaculation

–  Glans pain or paresthesia

–  Erectile dysfunction

–  Haematoma

–  Scar formation

–  Infection

–  Wound breakdown

–  Failure of the procedure

 

Where else can you use Hyaluronic Acid?

Any part of the body that requires volume or a lift.

From the face to genitals to the feet.

But this can be used to augment the penis in more ways than one.

 

What should you do?

Book a consultation with us and see if this is a treatment modality for you. Call us on 0207 126 7111 or email us on info@harleystreets.com we will then advise you on what the next steps are.

Fat Dissolving Injections

FAT DISSOLVING INJECTIONS @ NON SURGICAL LIPOLYSIS

 

 

Who are fat dissolving injections for?

This is intended for patients with pockets of localised fat not responding to diet or increased physical exercise. It is not intended for weight loss but rather to improve and alter the contour of the body by removing stubborn areas of fat.

Commonly treated areas include double chin, jowls, upper arms, waist, abdomen, saddle bags, buttocks, banana rolls, thighs and cellulitic skin.

 

Who is an Ideal candidate?

The ideal candidate for the fat dissolving injection treatment is someone who is not interested in a surgical procedure and who has a stubborn area of fat which is relatively non-responsive to dieting and exercise.

There is a spectrum of efficacy with treatments for fat removal with surgical liposuction still remaining the gold standard for removal of fat, however many people are not interested in the downtime, expense or the surgical nature of this procedure.

 

Which areas can be treated?

Lipolysis achieves good results in the following body zones:

Chin (double chin)

Cheeks (sagging)

Knees

Ankles

Hips (love handles)

Lipoma

Thighs (saddlebags)

Abdomen

Upper arms (arm toning)

Pseudo gynecomastia (male breasts)

Back (bra fat or muffin top)

Corrective measures after liposuction

Cellulitic areas

 

How is the treatment delivered?

The doctor will take a thorough medical history and examine you to make sure that you are a suitable candidate and that there are no contraindications to treatment.

You should be fully informed about the benefits and all common and important side effects.

Best practice is to then give you a few days or weeks to consider the treatment before it is carried out.

 

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment itself is relatively simple. It is delivered through injection points using a long thin needle to access the subcutaneous fat.

The procedure is generally not uncomfortable and most patients report discomfort levels of 1–3 on a scale of 1–10 (10 being severe).

 

Does it work?

While results can’t be compared to surgical liposuction, where large amounts of fat are permanently removed from the body, the results of fat dissolving injections are still permanent. The treatment takes time to reach its full effect but patients that have undergone follow-up examinations seven years after therapy still show reduction in fat tissue in the treated areas. An added benefit is that the skin tightens naturally during the healing process and it is not normally necessary to treat lax skin separately. If required, this can be done later with energy based devices (ultrasound or radiofrequency) or a thread-lift after treatment.

 

Is there a guarantee?

As with all medical therapies there is no guarantee of fully successful treatment. Some patients get good results from 3-4 treatments, but many require more treatments. In larger areas more sessions will be required. Up to 8 sessions are required for difficult areas in some cases. The recommended interval between repeat treatments is 2-4 weeks.

 

Is it safe?

It is only sold and delivered by medical professionals in the UK.

No major untreatable side effects have occurred in over 2 million treatments world wide so far.

Not one single incidence of overdose or toxic effects has been recorded.

In fact the dissolving ingredients gradually work over a period of 2 weeks after the injection. This helps to improve safety and minimise side effects.

   

Is it costly?

The charges are per injection area per session. Prices start from £800 per session.  It can be costly if large areas persist. Whilst in some patients results maybe visible after just one session in some further sessions are required with the added costs.

 

What happens after treatment?

You will have swelling and redness in the area where we dissolve the fat for a few weeks. This starts to settle after a few days and is normally gone in 3–4 weeks.

You may have some discomfort but this is not usually severe.

A little bruising is expected, especially if blood thinning agents such as aspirin, Ibuprofen (Nurofen or Advil), fish or krill oil, flaxseed oil or multivitamins have been ingested in the previous two weeks.

About 1 in 5 patients get a numb sensation in the treated area, which settles after a few weeks or months in all cases.

As with any injections, an allergic reaction can occur. Please tell your doctor if you are allergic to any substance.

Rarely, ulceration and subsequent scarring can occur and tender persistent lumps in the area injected have been reported.

The result can also occasionally be uneven, and if this is the case, further injections may be required.

 

Post Injection care

You should not exercise for 5 days and some patients find mild compression clothing (e.g. Spandex) helps for non-facial treatment areas.

A low calorie diet can help to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.

Complete the recommended course of therapy. Remember that good results will require at least three treatments, ideally two to four weeks apart.

Massage the treated area 5 minutes a day, 5 times a day for 5 days.

Tender lumps may be palpable for up to a month after treatment which is indicative of fat necrosis or fat cell death. It is normal for this to sometimes occur.

Moderate alcohol consumption post treatment is acceptable.

Some people experience some palpable lumps or unevenness after injectable Lipolysis/Mesotherapy. Massage (manual or a hand held massager) is helpful to increase circulation and smooth out any unevenness. This “lumping” will improve naturally over time.

Extended bruising or brown discoloration in the area treated can occur. This will settle with time.

Some itching similar to that experienced with hives can occur and is not a reason for concern. This usually lasts two to three days and can be treated with an antihistamine and a topical hydrocortisone cream, both available over the counter at your pharmacy if required.

Cosmetic improvement takes approximately three months to begin in majority of cases and final results in a selected few may not be seen for up to one year after treatment.

Fat dissolving injection treatment does not work on about 5% of patients.

Long-term benefit is possible with a healthy lifestyle.

The doctor will see you again after 2-4 weeks for review and to consider further treatments.

Get crystal clear skin with a diamond microdermabrasion

Want to sort dullness, clogged pores and uneven skin texture for good? If you’ve reached ‘peak mask’ and are no longer seeing results with off-the-shelf exfoliating treatments, consider a diamond microdermabrasion treatment to help you achieve the skin of your dreams.

What is diamond microdermabrasion? 

Microdermabrasion is a facial procedure which uses a clinical tool to spray tiny crystals at the skin, sloughing away dead skin cells and revealing new, refreshed skin. At Harley Streets, Dr. Bhar uses a diamond-tipped want to abrase the surface of the skin.

It’s the professional skin treatment that achieves that much-coveted radiance, clarity and glow from deep within the skin.

Who benefits from diamond microdermabrasion? 

If you want to address any of the following skin concerns, you may find huge benefit in a diamond microdermabrasion treatment with Dr. Bhar:

  • Enlarged and clogged pores
  • Fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven, unappealing texture
  • Blotchy pigmentation
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Excessively dry or oily skin
What is the procedure like?

Microdermabrasion uses a variable flow of vacuum suction to maintain contact with the skin whilst the crystals (or diamond tips) get to work by smoothing and buffing the skin’s surface,

The diamond method uses a diamond-tipped wand to buff and smooth the skin, combined with a flow of vacuum suction to maintain contact. The degree of exfoliation depends on the number of passes, the coarseness and pressure of the diamond wand, and the frequency of treatment.

How does the treatment work?

Dead skin cells are suctioned off while the negative pressure boosts blood circulation and stimulates cell regeneration. Excess of hardened skin is removed which make space for receptive active ingredients. At the same time, impurities caused by clogged pores are reduced by removing the corneum (hardened skin layer). Wrinkles look finer, pores get smaller and new skin cell production is stimulated. The vacuum massage means your skin feels instantly firmed.

The treatment can be performed on all areas of the body. Most commonly it is requested for the face, neck, décolletage and back.

Why choose Dr. Bhar? 

Dr. Bhar is a highly qualified cosmetic surgeon and is an expert in microdermabrasion treatments. His procedures are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic taste of every patient, producing healthier, more youthful and smoother skin. A specialised procedure such as this should always be handled by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Bhar to ensure it meets your expectations and is safe.

Why Autumn is the perfect time for aesthetic treatments

In order to maximise the results from cosmetic surgery, it’s important to plan according to the season and your schedule. Whilst tweakments are easy to squeeze in here and there throughout the year, if you’re planning anything more heavy-duty, the autumnal season provides the perfect storm of elements to achieve top results and a discreet and comfortable recovery. Here are some treatments we recommend taking advantage of during the sweater weather. 

 

  1. Laser hair removal – If you’re looking for a more permanent solution for unwanted facial hair or excess body hair, laser hair removal is the perfect option. A course of treatments to fully destroy the follicle can leave the skin temporarily sensitive to sunlight and you may experience some redness and irritation immediately after. For exposed skin areas such as legs, arms and face, consider starting the treatment in September.
  2. Tummy tuck – A tummy tuck scar takes between several months to a year to fade. Logistically, the autumn months are the only time to undergo the procedure, if you want to maintain your winter holiday and summer lifestyle. Baggy sweaters hide the post-op compression bandages and scars will fade in time for your summer holidays. 
  3. Chemical peels – This glow-tastic treatment is the go-to option for anyone suffering from lacklustre, dull, lined facial skin. It supercharges skin rejuvenation. The only drawback is that two weeks downtime is needed to recuperate after the peel procedure, and sunscreen is a necessity for at least three months after the treatment. The longer nights and darker days during winter offer the perfect opportunity to hunker down and recuperate.
  4. Breast augmentation – Clients often find the colder months preferable to recover from a breast augmentation, as you can discreetly settle into your new enhanced shape from the comfort of sweaters and coats. Undergoing the procedure in the fall also ensures you’ll be on tip-top form for the winter party season. 
  5. Laser skin resurfacing – Laser resurfacing sloughs away the outer layer of dead skin cells to encourage regeneration deep in the skin’s membrane. It’s loved for its ability to eliminate lines and wrinkles. Invest in the autumnal months: recovery will be so much easier due to reduced sunlight. It’s important to protect yourself from the sun during the 3 month recovery period to prevent pigmentation problems. Undertaking it during the autumn months will give you a headstart. 
  6. Brazilian butt lift – Conceal your augmented shape and recover discreetly from a Brazilian butt lift during the cooler, more comfortable autumnal months. Re-emerge for the winter season fully recovered and ready to celebrate the holidays with friends and family.

Regaining your Hollywood Glow with eDermastamp

If you’re experiencing the typical signs of aging; fine lines, pigmentation, dullness, acne scarring, lacklustre texture, sagging skin, or just not feeling your bright and beautiful usual self, why not consider an eDermastamp treatment? It’s Dr. Bhar’s state of the art facial therapy that is helping patients regain their Hollywood glow and feel beautiful and healthy from the inside out. Here are five things to know about the eDermastamp.

What is eDermastamp?

E- Dermastamp is an advanced electronic technique which aims to restore collagen production deep in the layers of your skin. The treatment is administered with a professional electronic device, similar to a microneedle. These ultra-fine needles are rolled over the face, enabling potent treatments to be absorbed and penetrating the dermis layer, giving an almost immediate plumping effect.

Who benefits from an eDermastamp treatment?

Treatments using the E-Dermastamp pen are non-surgical but are best performed by a certified medical aesthetician such as Dr. Bhar to ensure complete safety and sterile equipment. You’re a good candidate if you have any of the following concerns:

  • • General dullness and fatigue in skin tone
  • • Lacklustre texture
  • • Fine lines around your mouth and eyes
  • • Skin pigmentation concerns
  • • Enlarged Pores
  • • Scarred skin
  • • Saggy, drooping skin
  • • Sun damage – dark marks
How does eDermastamp treatment work? 

For all the beauty buffs out there, here’s precisely how it works:

  1. 1. The therapy is administered using a professional microneedle tool. It’s a non-surgical technique which induces collagen production to plump and tone the face. The needles create thousands of tiny microtraumas.
  2. 2. A process of healing and repair is kicked-off by the skin’s auto-immune response. Collagen is produced by the skin, filling in scars, wrinkles and other skin imperfections.
  3. 3. Your skin is smoother and plumper. If you undertake a course of eDermastamps over a number of months, you can expect to see a build-up of collagen and an even more dramatic Hollywood glow effect.
Why choose Dr. Bhar? 

Dr. Bhar is a highly qualified cosmetic surgeon and is an expert in eDermastamp treatments. His procedures are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic taste of every patient, producing healthier, more youthful and glowing skin. A specialised therapy such as this should always be handled by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Bhar to ensure it meets your expectations and is safe.

Jennifer Lopez’s beauty secrets revealed!

J-Lo recently celebrated her 50th birthday, but the pop icon looks barely a day over 30. Here we take a guess at the secrets behind what’s keeping this diva looking so divine. To help you understand the behind-the-scenes beauty of achieving such a miraculously youth look, we’ve done some expert analysis for you and produced a cheat sheet for everyone looking to age so gracefully.

What’s down to simply good genes? And what can only be achieved with a nip, tuck and a tweak? Here’s our opinion, from brow to toe.  

Looking at before and after images of Jennifer Lopez, it is obvious she has certainly had a number of cosmetic treatments done. And by cosmetic treatments, we don’t necessarily mean cosmetic surgery, per se. 

Forehead – She is certainly using muscle relaxing treatments to the forehead to relax her forehead lines with botulinum toxin, and around the eyes, too, to prevent any crow feet wrinkles forming around this delicate region. 

Brows – Her eyebrows have maintained their position likely due to an eyebrow lift, which has the added effect of keeping her eyes looking more open, creating a youthful appearance. She doesn’t have the tired appearance look that one gets with the aging process. 

Eyes – Her under eyes look like they have filler in the tear trough region or usage of PDO thread. This has the added benefit of not just lifting the skin, stimulating collagen production, tightening the pores, promoting new blood vessel formation and orbital rejuvenation.

Nose  – She has almost certainly had a rhinoplasty, alarplasty and tip refinement to her nose. The nasal bridge appears narrower and straighter and her alas, (the nostril area of the nose) have been reduced in size because they are in line with her inter-canthal distance (the distance between her medial part of the eyes). Mind you, most of these outcomes can also be achieved with PDO threads in specific regions of the nose, so this also may have been used.

Cheeks – Her cheeks look filled with cheek filler. They appear well defined and contoured, enabling her to use less makeup to achieve the effect of high cheekbones.

Naso-labial area – She doesn’t appear to have deep smile lines or nasolabial folds, which might be attributed to the usage of dermal fillers or a thread lift in that area.

Lips- Her lips look augmented both in definition (around the lips) and volume (within the lips) with the help of fillers.

Jaw – Her jaw angle and jawline looks cosmetically tweaked, which may be due to using fillers to contour the jaw. The margins of the jaw are more protruded, broader, and more angular, which is the case when jawline augmentation and refinement is done. It could also be the case that she has had toxin injected into the masseters to give her a more v-shaped jawline. 

Chin – Her chin looks augmented to put it in proportion to her facial dimensions. This aides the perception of a refined jawline, as the skin is tight around that region. She also doesn’t have visible marionette lines (the lines from the angle of the mouth to the chin), which implies that they have been filled with filler or PDO threaded.

Skin – Her skin looks radiant and could be due to laser therapy to the skin. Laser therapy revitalises the skin whilst reducing discolouration of the skin and evening out of her skin tone. No doubt she has a team of Hollywood facialists and make-up artists taking great care of her skin.

Good genes – Of course, everyone’s looks are dictated by their genes; and it would seem she has a very good set of genes that make her more predisposed towards aging gracefully. It has also helped that she has physically maintained herself and kept herself healthy. However, it would be hard to fathom a 50 year old woman looking this youthful without the help of cosmetic interventions and tweakments!

6 tips to remove your stretch marks

An estimated 80% of us have stretch marks. They develop when rapid growth happens in a short period of time, causing a visible rupture of collagen. Some people wear them with pride calling them their ‘tiger stripes’, and others find that they fade in time to a less noticeable light silver. However, the majority of us find that they don’t budge and seek solutions to help them fade. Here are six ways to tackle stretch marks. 

Try laser therapy

 

 

Laser therapy can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. It works by heating up the upper layers of the skin’s tissue, causing underlying fibres to produce more collagen; stimulating the skin to repair and restore damaged cells. 

 

Moisturise skin with Bio-Oil 

 

Retaining your skin’s moisture and elasticity by keeping it hydrated can help. Try cult product Bio-Oil, which contains soothing and anti-inflammatory properties which reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

 

Invest in a chemical peel

 

If you’re suffering from severe stretch marks that don’t fade with gentler methods, try an intensive chemical peel. The chemical, phenol, is able to permeate the dermis at a very deep level to remove the outer layers of skin and dead skin cells, revealing renewed, plumper, more youthful skin beneath, free of unsightly silvery stripes.

Take regular exercise

 

 

Exercise improves circulation, helping skin to preserve elastin and protect against the formation of stretch marks. Build this into your regular routine. 

 

Consider fillers 

 

Fillers can enhance and improve stretch marks. PRP, PRF and HA fillers work by injecting concentrated proteins into your skin to stimulate collagen growth and trigger accelerated healing deep down. These fillers contain incredibly powerful growth factors and proteins that have immense healing power when unleashed near the site of a stretch mark injury. 

 

Experiment with micro-needling 

 

Try a micro-needling treatment such as eDermastamp to restore collagen production deep in the layers of your skin. The treatment is administered with a professional electronic device, similar to a microneedle. These ultra-fine needles are rolled over the stretch mark, enabling absorption of potent treatments and causing stretch marks to fade.

5 reasons why tweakments are the biggest beauty trend of 2019 

At Harley Street Surgery, we’ve noticed the trend for tweakments; non-surgical lifts, tweaks, freezes, fluffs, fills, peels and puffs – and they are soaring in popularity with our patients. Women and men are turning to tweakments as opposed to full-blown surgical interventions in the bid to age naturally and gradually. We’re digging into the trend here with five reasons why it’s happening, and why we’ll see it continuing into 2020.

It’s the new aesthetic trend

Consumers are shifting towards the natural, individualistic beauty look over a fake, homogenised, one-size-fits-all look. Liquid facelifts, PRP & PRF, non-surgical nose jobs and PDO contouring tap into this new mindset of people wanting to look like themselves, but a little more refined. Tweakments offer a boost to our confidence, ease the effects of aging, and aren’t obvious to our friends and family. 

You don’t look like you’ve had anything ‘done’ 

Severe facelifts or noses that look like they’ve been ‘done’ a few too many times have put people off traditional plastic surgery methods. Consumers are moving  ‘beyond botox’ and ‘Extreme Makeover’ style transformations to prefer more subtle, incremental courses of high-technology treatments that offer fluffs and puffs every other month to maintain their natural beauty. Staples and bandages are out, “I woke up like this” beauty is in.  

You can be in’n’out   

Tweakments can be done on a lunchtime break. Clients love the ease of being in’n’out on a break from work and it’s a more attractive choice than lengthy, time-consuming operations.

1 – Results are highly personalisable

If done with a qualified cosmetic doctor, the incredible results achieved with tweakments can sometimes far surpass those achieved with surgical interventions. Tweakments are super effective with clients suffering from early signs of aging – outcomes can be fine-tuned to achieve individualised goals.

2 – It’s quick and easy and you’ll look amazing 

Instead of the pain and lengthy recovery time needed when going under the knife, with tweakments, you can book, attend and recover on the same day. Minimal downtime or recovery is needed and treatments can be slotted easily into your daily routine. 

3 – Which tweakments are available at Harley Street Surgery? 

Dr. Bhar’s tweakments are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic taste of every patient, producing natural, youthful and beautiful looking results. Harley Street Surgery offers all state-of-the-art tweakments, including peels, fillers, PFP, PRP, medical facials, phenol peels, liquid facials, diamond microdermabrasion, PDO contouring and rejuvenation, eDermastamp, injectable moisturisers, botox, and lasers, to name but a few.
