Skin Debunk

Are you doing these eight things to your face? Here’s Our Skin Debunk

Are you doing these eight things to your face? Here’s Our Skin Debunk 960 643 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

How are your new year’s health goals going? If one of your resolutions was to take better care of your skin, you’ll be glad you stumbled upon this blog post.

It features eight, very enlightening points about your face – and what you should and shouldn’t be doing for optimum skin health. So, if you’re doing one (or more) of these things to your complexion, it’s time to rethink. Read on for the Helen Taylor Aesthetics skin debunk.

That’s right, we’re exposing some of the myths about skin, skincare routines and skincare to ensure you can enjoy a brighter, fresher face this year.

Skipping SPF

We’re sorry, but it simply isn’t okay to skip SPF in winter. The general consensus may be that your skin doesn’t need protection during the cooler months, but that simply isn’t true. Vogue explains why you need sunscreen or SPF year-round. After all, you get one face – and it’s vital you look after it.

The site suggests:“Incidental sun exposure—the kind experienced on a daily commute—has a cumulative effect that results in fine lines and sagging skin” and our founder Helen agrees.

Wearing sunscreen all year is a must, so make sure you incorporate it into your skincare routine.

Skin Debunk

Avoiding Chocolate

Despite what well-meaning relatives or friends will tell you, there is no evidence between chocolate and pimples – so tuck in if you enjoy a chunk every now and then. After all, a little bit of what you enjoy won’t harm.

If you’re suffering from acne-prone skin, chat to our team at Helen Taylor Aesthetics about your options. We have a Taylormade Hydrafacial just for you, for example – and we also offer chemical peels for stubborn acne marks and scars.

Sitting in the Shade

You aren’t immune from sun damage, simply because you choose to sit in the shade. In fact, that’s one of the biggest skin myths out there!

According to skincancer.org, “people can spend long hours in the shade while still receiving quite a lot of sun exposure and risking sun damage”. Be safe, folks – slather that sunscreen on!

Scrubbing Oily Skin with Exfoliators

Got oily skin? Maybe harsh exfoliators and cleansers featuring micro beads form part of your usual skincare routine.

Well, it’s time to rethink your beauty regime! Self.com offers nine ways you could be contributing to even oiler skin – and over-scrubbing is suggested as one of them. The site says you should avoid pore-clogging products too. Why not chat to us about a skincare regime that’s devised just for you, as well as a programme of regular facials? Or book your free consultation here.

Using Only Expensive Skincare Brands

While there’s something very luxurious about using premium skincare, doing so may not be the best course of action for your skin. Often, the fewer products the better. Stay tuned here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics, as we’re working hard behind the scenes to devise our own range of skin-loving cleansers and moisturisers and we’re pretty sure you’ll love them.

Stockpiling Anti-Ageing Creams

While a good skincare routine may help keep your complexion hydrated, don’t be fooled by products that promise the earth and ingredient lists filled with chemicals you can’t pronounce.

The BBC suggests that scientific-sounding products aren’t always what they’re cracked up to be, so don’t be tempted to panic-buy anti-ageing creams. Instead, try a targeted, bespoke approach to skincare, selecting the products that work best for your skin type.

Washing Your Face Too Much

This point ties in with over-scrubbing your face with harsh cleansers; washing your face too much can also be a no-no – even if you don’t have oily skin. Allure offers some advice on how often you should cleanse your skin, so if you’re doing it too often, maybe it’s time to revise your skincare routine.

Be aware that your skin’s needs may change as you age too; for example, skincare at 30 may be drastically different to your regime at 20. If you need some advice on the best treatment(s) for you, why not book your free consultation with us?

Trying ‘Professional’ Treatments at Home

You may well have heard that dermarolling at home is much cheaper than visiting a clinic. But please don’t be tempted to try professional treatments like this yourself. True, you may save yourself a few pounds, but is it worth the risk that you might permanently damage your skin? We say definitely not.

Fat Banishing Treatments

Trim Up in 2019 with Taylormade Fat-Banishing Treatments

Trim Up in 2019 with Taylormade Fat-Banishing Treatments 2000 1719 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

If you could change one thing about your appearance, what would it be? If your answer to that question is ‘nothing’, we salute you! Body confidence is everything – and we often wish we had a smidgen more of it. After all, there always seems to be something about ourselves that we want to alter a little. Ahem, *fat melting*.

For many of our clients, their weight is one of the key things they’d change – and it’s the reason hundreds of you visit us here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics for revolutionary fat-banishing treatments. Of course, a brand-new year is the perfect time to make some changes – if you’d like to – so we’re letting you in on the procedures you can try here in our Rugby aesthetics clinic.

3D Lipo and Fat Freezing

Part of the famous 3D brand, 3D Lipo is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that aims to get you looking and feeling your best in a relatively short period of time. The procedure is the culmination of two decades of personal experience by its founder, Roy Cowley – who’s known for developing results-driven devices in the aesthetics industry.

It’s hugely popular with celebrities, too, with Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson recently trying it out for herself and giving it the thumbs up. Click the link above to see Marnie undergoing the treatment, which includes a glimpse of what to expect when you try the procedure out, too.

Using exceptionally clever technology, it helps address any issues relating to excess fat and will ensure you can start January as you mean to go on throughout the year: feeling more confident.

Our therapists will work with you to deliver a ‘Taylormade’ treatment plan just for you. A bespoke approach which incorporates fat melting, reduction, freezing and tightening, we’ll ensure great results at the end of it.

What happens during 3D Lipo?

There’s no need for a canula to be inserted with 3D Lipo; instead, it uses heat from fibre-optic lasers to melt body fat. Combining methods called ‘Cavitation’ and ‘Cryolipolysis’ (the former is for inch loss, while the latter helps rid you of stubborn pockets of fat), the treatment physically destroys fat cells, as opposed to breaking them up, before releasing them into the body.

A gel will be placed on your skin during the treatment, before ultrasound plates are moved over your body and you may feel a warm sensation.

What about results?

Keen to see our clients’ results? Head to our online portfolio to view some before and after photos – and if you have any questions about any of our fat melting procedures, please feel free to get in touch. You can also check out some reviews from our clients on our Facebook page.

In terms of results, you’ll notice an improvement in the treated area immediately, with a block of a few sessions often required. Ready to book your no-obligation consultation? Just click here to book yours; we’re already taking appointments for early January and February, so don’t miss out.

Anxious

Feeling Anxious? Some Advice Ahead of Your Aesthetics Visit

Feeling Anxious? Some Advice Ahead of Your Aesthetics Visit 2000 1333 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

When you’re preparing to try something new – be it a haircut, a fitness class or even public speaking – you’re bound to have a few anxieties.

It’s only natural to feel a little daunted when you’re on the cusp of something you’ve never done before – and nerves are something we see almost every day in the clinic. But there’s really no need to worry. In fact, one of the most common comments we receive when our clients emerge from the treatment room is: “I wish I’d done it sooner.”

But, like a lot of you, a few, pre-procedure worries were putting them off. So, to help you prepare for your visit to our clinic, we thought we’d share with you some things to consider:

We Do What We Do, Day-in, Day-out

Our team understand that you might be feeling a little nervous – and that’s completely understandable After all, you’re putting your trust in someone you don’t know to take the very best care of your prized possessions: your face and your body.

But our team – led by experienced aesthetics practitioner, Helen Taylor – will make you feel more than at home from the minute you walk through the doors of our clinic. Remember: we do what we do on a daily basis – and we’ve completed the necessary training to be able to do so.

Why not take time to discover more about our team over here? If you have a question or two, please feel free to email us, too. We want you to feel completely comfortable before your visit and we’ll do our utmost to ensure that’s the case.

We Don’t Notice Your ‘Wobbly Bits’

We all have an area or two we feel less than confident about – and the chances are, what you see in the mirror isn’t what we see. While we can certainly help you smooth and shape any problem areas, we will tell you this: your ‘wobbly bits’ or imperfections aren’t nearly as noticeable to anyone else. What we mean when we say this is please don’t feel daunted about baring what you may need to bare here in our clinic – whether that’s stubborn areas of fat for 3D Lipo, or acne-prone skin ahead of a facial.

We see women’s bodies – of all shapes and sizes – in almost every treatment and our goal is simply to help you feel more confident about yourself. Ours is a discreet and friendly team and you can feel more than comfortable when you visit us for a procedure or two.

We’ll Explain All at Your Consultation

If you’re worrying about what to expect during your treatment, please try not to. Our free consultation service is designed to help you have any of your burning questions answered. Perhaps you’d like to know what happens during fat freezing, or maybe you’d simply like to understand how long it’ll take for your eyebrows to heal after semi-permanent brows. Believe us when we say that no question is too silly – ask away and we’ll gladly answer.

Ours is a Friendly and Relaxed Clinic – But Don’t Just Take Our Word for It!

Believe us when we say you won’t be the only one to have a few pre-treatment nerves – and you can check out our reviews to see that it’s normal to feel anxious. Many of our clients state in their review that they wish they’d visited us for their chosen treatment much sooner. Below are just some of those kind words – and you can view the rest here.

“Helen was amazing and professional from start to finish. Made me feel so at ease everytime I went to visit. I had three sessions in total as my eyebrows were not completely finished yet, which was amazing. Shows how much of a perfectionist she is with all of her work. Thank you so much xx” Charlotte Goodall

“Lovely and welcoming, excellent service with brilliant results. Had my eyebrows done and I am so happy with the results xx” Sharon Lorraine

“I’m so pleased with Helen’s work,my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner! Helen is a true professional & extremely skilled at what she does.
I put off having microblading for some time after hearing & seeing a lot of disasters with other people I knew. I followed Helen’s page & posts for a year before finally going to see her. It was worth travelling further out because as soon as I met Helen, I knew I had full confidence in going ahead with the treatment. Helen discussed everything thoroughly and made sure she knew my thoughts & expectations before agreeing that it was a suitable treatment for me. I was still a little nervous on the day but Helen made sure that we got the right colour & shape before going ahead. Helen gave great advice on colours and how they may change, she was so knowledgeable which made me feel at ease. I’m so happy with my brows, the colour & shape are so natural & I couldn’t be anymore pleased. They’ve given me so much confidence & I can fully go make up free when I want to! I would highly recommend Helen for this, don’t make the mistake of finding a cheaper deal. You really need a highly trained professional who knows what they’re doing for something like this.” Katie Kirk

Hydrafacial

HydraFacial: Lauren’s Experience

HydraFacial: Lauren’s Experience 251 299 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Problem skin? Or perhaps your complexion’s simply looking a little lacklustre. Whatever your skin woes, there’s a bespoke HydraFacial for you – and we now offer the popular treatment here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics.

Tightening the pores and hydrating the face, HydraFacials can help alleviate a whole host of skin sins – from spots to blemishes and even fine lines and wrinkles. They’re suitable for all skin types and ages, too – and they take just half an hour.

Recently, Lauren – a client of ours – came to try out a HydraFacial for the first time. This is what she thought…

I’m nearly 35, yet I still suffer from acne-prone skin. For a lot of years now, it hasn’t been anywhere near as bad as it was in my teens, but I’ve recently taken a break from the contraceptive pill and I’m waiting for all hell to break loose where my complexion’s concerned.

Hydrafacial

When I visited Helen Taylor Aesthetics for my very first HydraFacial a fortnight or so ago, my skin was having a bit of a moment. Just five weeks after quitting the pill and angry, red spots had already begun to rear their ugly heads around my chin – hooray for that. NOT.

If you struggle with your skin yourself, you’ll know that it zaps all your confidence and means you spend a lot more money than most on concealer. I don’t know about you, but I’m determined to get my skin under control once and for all – and without the ‘safety blanket’ of the pill.

So, I listened to Helen and the team, who told me I had nothing to fear with the HydraFacial – and that it’d help my skin and help give me back some confidence. Another thing you’ll understand if you have less than perfect skin is that putting your trust in anything new – be it a lotion, potion, foundation, regime or treatment – can be daunting.

Hydrafacial

 

But I did it. I left my worries at the door and got up on the treatment couch – and I’m so glad I did. Katherine performed the procedure and her knowledge of HydraFacial was clear from the off. Not only that, she was so caring and patient, answering any questions and really putting me at ease.

It helped to know that she’s also experienced a few issues with her own skin; it made being stripped of my foundation so much easier.

So, what happened during the treatment itself – the ‘Skin Health for Life’ HydraFacial? Well, despite having all the debris and dead skin sucked from my face, it was actually fairly relaxing. Like a ‘spring clean for the complexion’, the HydraFacial felt like I was doing something really good for myself, not just my skin. Let’s call it maintenance for the face, too. After all, we subject our complexion to all sorts – harsh weather, layers of foundation, the occasional night or two sleeping in our make-up – so I felt good that I’d allowed my skin to enjoy a little TLC.

Never mind my skin, I really enjoyed the experience too.

First, a deep cleanse ridded my face of any make-up. Next, an exfoliator was applied to reveal healthier new skin, before a glycolic and salicylic solution helped loosen debris from the pores. Now, the extractions! Drawing out any impurities, this was the best bit – and it felt good to know all the ‘gunk’ was being pulled out from under the skin.

The hydration part came next, when a cocktail of hyaluronic acid and powerful antioxidants and peptides helped replenish the complexion. The final part was red and infrared LED light, used to reduce redness and further stimulate collagen and natural production of vitamin A. All in all, what a treat it was!

I went away feeling great – and even braved a lunch out completely make-up skin. My face had a lovely glow to it for days afterwards, while make-up application was a dream. Katherine also told me to make sure I applied plenty of skin-boosting serums or moisturisers up to a week after my treatment, since the skin would be more likely to ‘drink them up’.

I’m already thinking about my next HydraFacial, as my skin has never looked better since I visited the clinic. Thanks to Katherine and the team for making me feel so at ease – I’ll definitely be back.

Thinking of trying a HydraFacial, too? There’s a treatment with your name on it, with each HydraFacial tailored to your skin’s unique needs. Book in for your free consultation here.

Hand Injections

Combat a Huge Tell-tale Sign of Ageing with this Treatment…

Combat a Huge Tell-tale Sign of Ageing with this Treatment… 960 637 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

You’ve got to ‘hand’ it to our team; we don’t miss a trick when it comes to ensuring our customers always look and feel great: the latest celebrity-endorsed treatment has been on our menu for some time!

What are we talking about? Hand injections! TV presenter Anthea Turner has been singing the treatment’s praises in the press, as it really can make a difference when it comes to our continual quest to appear more youthful. So, let’s talk you through the treatment and its benefits…

What are hand injections?

Designed to take years off the appearance of your hands, the injections use filler to smooth out wrinkles. The former Blue Peter and GMTV star has undergone the treatment, which cost her £475 – and she’s more than happy with the results.

Well, did you know we offer it here at our Rugby-based clinic? Helping turn back the clock on ageing – in terms of your appearance, at least – the injections are minimally invasive.

Why can hand injections help?

If you’re working on pepping up the skin on your face, perhaps your hands need the same level of TLC? These revolutionary hand injections can certainly help then, ensuring those with wrinkles and lines can enjoy a smoother, bump-free appearance.

How do hand injections work?

We all know that fillers help plump up the facial skin, but they also work on the hands. A great option to restore loss of volume from the back of the hands, it’s a treatment we’ve been performing for some time here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics.

With results lasting up to a year, the treatment isn’t too uncomfortable either. While you may think that the insertion of a needle into the back of your hand could mean you leave the clinic feeling a little sore, that isn’t the case at all. A surprisingly pain-free treatment, you won’t feel much at all once the needle’s inserted.

So, get ready to draw attention to your hands, as this treatment will leave you with softer, more silky skin. Interested in hearing more? Book your no-obligation consultation here and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Our consultations are performed in the clinic, or we even offer a FaceTime or Skype chat, for those of you who live too far away from our Rugby premises.

Want a little help elsewhere? Here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics we offer a host of treatments designed to ensure you leave our clinic feeling great – and from top to toe. From bespoke facials to tackle every kind of skin concern, to 3DLipo for those stubborn areas of fat.

Why not chat to us about our new Taylor Made Treatments (TMT), too, which will help you address all your concerns for one great price. It’s a newly-introduced service that we’re excited to roll out here at the clinic, so do not hesitate to get in touch with Helen and the team.

How the A-list banish dark circles permanently

How the A-list banish dark circles permanently 2000 1334 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Contouring might be all the rage, but tear trough treatment, an advanced aesthetic treatment, is an increasingly popular way to erase dark circles for good. Read on to discover every bright-eyed celeb’s secret

Make-up can work wonders for masking tired eyes and a lack of sleep – as anyone who has ever stockpiled Touche Éclat knows. As we get older, however, the delicate skin beneath the eyes loses density, making dark circles more pronounced. For some women, this under-eye bruising or panda effect can begin as young as the 20s, making the face appear tired no matter how much sleep you have. And let’s face it, none of us get enough sleep as it is.

So how come the celebs always manage to look so bright eyed? These are busy women with demanding jobs and hectic lives, just like us, and yet they still manage to light up the screen, not to mention look awesome on Instagram.

Tear trough treatment – the A-list’s big secret

Well, it may well be down to an advanced aesthetic procedure called tear trough treatment – and Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively and Kim Kardashian are just a few of the bright-eyed A-listers who are rumoured to have had it. Which makes sense. If you need to look your best 24/7, then this painless procedure can definitely help. It can also be performed in less than an hour.

After numbing the skin, a solution of hyaluronic acid – a filler, that mimics the body’s own natural moisturiser – is eased into the tissue beneath the eyes, instantly plumping out the skin and reducing that bruised or hollowed-out appearance. Not only is the procedure quick and painless, tear trough treatment is also incredibly affordable.

Treat yourself today

At Helen Taylor Aesthetics, we offer a number of interest free finance packages tailored to your budget, so you can spread the cost of treatments over a year. You might not be on the Silver Screen, but looking great in selfies on your smart phone screen is just as important, right?

Contact us today, to arrange a free consultation to discuss the best treatments for you. If nothing else, you could save you a fortune on concealer…

Sssshhhh… Your best kept secret.

The perfect treatments for end-of-summer blues

The perfect treatments for end-of-summer blues 1943 1200 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

The skies might be grey, but your skin doesn’t have to be. Thanks to our interest free finance packages, you can hold onto that holiday glow all year round with a range of advanced aesthetic treatments

I don’t know about you, but I always feel a bit blah at this time of year – and it’s not just the weather. There’s something about summer holidays that just clears the mind, isn’t there? You strip back everything – from your wardrobe to your make-up routine – to the bare basics. Stress and worry fall by the wayside and you just feel so in the moment, care-free and confident.

Then you get home and before you know it your tan has faded, and so has that invincible I-can-be-anyone-I-want feeling. But what if you could hold onto that holiday glow all year-round? Well, I can’t do anything about the grey skies, I’m afraid, but I can recommend a whole host of beauty tweaks that will keep you feeling sunny whatever the weather.

Holiday skin – all year round

Most of us wear less make-up on holiday because our skin has a natural glow (and, let’s face it, it’ll all wash off in the pool anyway). Permanent cosmetics can help you achieve that simplicity long after you’ve packed away your passport. Microblading, for example, is an advanced technique that creates realistic brows, hair by hair. No scary drawn-on-looking brows, just beautifully defined ones that transform the whole face, without the need for a bulging make-up bag! And, best of all, the treatment lasts up to 2 years, so you can bin your brow pencil and still wake up looking on fleek every day #nofilter.

Affordable advanced aesthetics

At Helen Taylor, we also offer a number of advanced aesthetic treatments, from PDO Thread Lifting, non-surgical eyelid tightening or rejuvenating peels, that will transform your looks and restore that I just-stepped-off-the-beach glow.

Interest free finance packages = affordable treatments for all

While your summer holiday might have cost an arm and a leg, you’ll be amazed at just how affordable all our treatments are. At Helen Taylor we offer a number of interest free finance packages that can be tailored to your beauty budget.

Treat yourself today!..

and don’t forget to check out my new Dear Helen vlog, in which I answer all your pressing beauty questions.

Now, go pour yourself a piña colada – and put the heating on!
