Sagging skin getting the better of you? Here are my top solutions.

Sagging skin getting the better of you? Here are my top solutions. 1280 853 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Hello, it’s Helen, and today I wanted to talk to you about…. Saggy skin. Urgh.

Don’t you just hate it? It’s a part of life, I know that – but it still doesn’t feel great does it, when you look in the mirror one day and notice bingo wings, and a turkey neck, or perhaps loose sagging skin around your tummy after dramatic weight loss.

So, as summer is ever increasingly catching up with us, today I wanted to talk about sagging skin (on the face and the body) and give you my best tips on what to do about it.  Are you ready? Then let’s get on with it.

Let’s talk about sagging skin on your body.

Sagging skin can appear just about anywhere on your body, and it can be to do with the natural ageing process, or after pregnancy or weight loss.

Common areas where sagging skin can be present include: bingo wings, tummy, thighs, turkey neck and on your bottom. But before you have a major panic attack, don’t worry, there ARE things that we can do about it. Here is a rundown:

Tummy, arms, bum, legs: You can tighten and lift these areas using something called radio frequency which our 3D Lipo machine provides. If excess weight is also an issue it would be advisable to first use fat freezing or cavitation on your area to kill the fat cells and then radiofrequency would tighten it.

Neck and chin: You can use radio frequency on these areas, or something called HiFU (high intense focused ultrasound), which will tone, tighten and lift a sagging chin, neck and jowl area.

Plasma: Plasma Blast also works great on tightening skin and works wonders on the neck, and jowl area, giving a real lift which looks natural and is long lasting.

Let’s talk about sagging skin on your face.

Facial sagging can be a dead give away about a woman’s age, so you want to keep on top of it as soon as you start to notice. Maintenance is key. Here is what we can do for loose and sagging skin in the facial area.

Plasma: Plasma Blast will tighten and lift areas such as the upper and lower eyelids, the sides of your face, the forehead, and can also be used on your neck area and the jowl area, to give an overall ‘facelift’ effect. The results can last between 2-5 years and the best part is that no surgery is required.

Radio frequency: Radio frequency can be used to tighten loose skin and give an overall toned look to your face and neck. Many celebs attribute radio frequency for being responsible for their ageless appearance. Jennifer Aniston and Kylie Minogue to name a few.

PDO Threads: Threads can lift your skin with results comparable to that of a surgeon but without the actual surgery or intense downtime. If you have seen Vicky’s Vlog you will know all about how amazing the results from threads can be and if you are yet to see it, catch up with Vicky 7 days post lift here.

So there we have it – there are many solutions to sagging skin on both the face and body, but the best course of action would be to book in for your free consultation with me and from there, I will be able to tell you exactly which treatment would best suit YOU.

I hope you have a great rest of your week, whatever you are doing, until the next time, stay happy, stay safe and don’t forget your sunscreen!

Chemical Peel

The truth about chemical peels (and why you should get one).

The truth about chemical peels (and why you should get one). 2000 1125 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Hello everyone, it’s Helen, and as I write this, it’s the Easter weekend and I am relaxing on holiday. I hope that you all had a great Easter,  whatever you got up to?  Today, I wanted to talk to you about a treatment that I have been asked about a lot recently, and that is chemical peels.

Chemical peels are a great way to refresh your appearance, and kick start any other treatment plan that you may be considering embarking upon.

Chemical Peels remove the top layer of skin, giving way to a fresher, brighter and more luminous appearance, and can work wonders on skin issues including pigmentation, scarring and ageing.

Let’s look in a little more depth now, about the wonder of the chemical peel and why YOU should consider getting one!

Not as scary as you may be thinking. Modern day peels are gentle.

Let’s talk firstly about the fear factor when it comes to chemical peels. Not one to shy away from the truth, I LOVE to address the REAL LIFE CONCERNS that my clients may be having.

‘Is it going to hurt?’ ‘‘Will it leave me looking like Samantha Jones from Sex + the City’? (did you ever see that episode?)

 These are just some of the questions that clients ask me when they consider coming in for a chemical peel. And I am always on hand to answer them:

Is it going to hurt? No. You may experience some mild warming of the skin once the peel starts to take effect. But I would describe this as tingling and it should not hurt. Modern day peels, called EnerPeels, remain inert until they have penetrated deep into the skin, which means irritation of the top layer is minimised.

What will I look like after the peel? You will experience peeling during the treatment and the positive effects of this may be seen immediately. Of course, it’s good to schedule a peel when you have a free diary as there may be some shedding of skin for a few days after the treatment.

Modern day peels produce outstanding results.

Brighter and fresher looking skin, reduction in pigmentation and scarring, clearer looking skin (acne), and a reduction in the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. A peel is a great treatment to have at any time but is especially wonderful before a special occasion such as a party or a wedding.

You can expect your results to last for several months, and longer term, the peel also stimulates the production of collagen, so you can expect to see results that appear months after the treatment.

Modern day peels work well with other treatments.

I often recommend a peel before embarking upon a course of other treatments, such as fillers, profhilo, biofil or even the introduction of a new skincare routine. Why? Well, a peel gives a fresher ‘new’ foundation to your skin, and this means that anything else that you have done just looks that much better. Think of it a little like cleaning, you wouldn’t paint a wall for example without removing the dust and debris first.

A peel can really boost your confidence.

Because a peel gives results quickly and that are visible, it can really boost your confidence as it is one of those treatments that people cannot help themselves from telling you that you look ‘younger’, ‘fresher’ or like you have been on holiday.

You will also notice that your makeup goes on much more smoothly, and you need to wear less of it. Skincare products will be able to penetrate your skin much faster and will have much more of a dramatic impact, so this is a treatment where the gift just keeps on giving.

So, if you would like to treat yourself to a chemical peel, why not start by reading more about the peels that we offer here.Then, book yourself in for a free consultation and let’s discuss which kind of peel would work best for YOU.

I hope that you had a wonderful Easter, and until the next time, as always, if you have any questions then myself, and Chloe and Katherine are here for you.

Take Care,

The 3 skincare routine products that every woman should be using

The 3 skincare routine products that every woman should be using 2000 1334 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

It’s time to declutter the bathroom cabinet and get serious about your skincare routine.

Have you ever looked at your beauty cabinet and thought ‘hmm, it’s getting a bit over crowded in there..’. I have. And I thoroughly enjoyed decluttering it!

Why was this so enjoyable? 1) I felt ‘free’ again, like I do when I do any sort of decluttering, 2) I could rethink my skincare routine and start afresh again.

I don’t know about you, but it’s so easy to become overwhelmed when you decide to invest in your skincare routine. There’s this product for this problem, and that product for that problem. It can be easy to buy too many products and then have no idea how you’re supposed to use them!

Today I want to take the stress out of skincare, and share with you my top 3 products that your skin is going to thank you for..

1. Glycolic Acid Cleanser.

I love love love a good Glycolic Acid Cleanser, as it really gets to the heart of things and brightens  and decelerates the ageing process in one fell swoop. This is a MUST to add to any skincare routine.

What it does:  Glycolic Acid destroys the ‘cement’  that holds your dead skin cells together. This means that this one product not only cleanses, it exfoliates at the same time too.  It’s great for all skin types, and works wonders on blemishes, pigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles.

If there was one product that I would start off suggesting that somebody on a budget, slot into their routine, this would be it because it works on so many areas. Replace your usual cleanser with a glycolic acid cleanser and your skin really will thank you!

2. A Vitamin C Serum.

I honestly couldn’t survive without a Vitamin C Serum, as it simply makes me look ‘alive’ again. Great for the morning after the night before, Vitamin C should be in every woman’s bathroom cabinet.

What it does:  Vitamin C is brilliant at pepping up tired, and uneven skins, working wonders on dullness, pigmentation, dark circles, fine lines and then some! When slotted into your daily routine, you will notice a brighter, firmer, smoother and clearer looking face staring back at you in the mirror.

But that’s not the main reason why I love Vitamin C – it also works to protect your skin at a cellular level and is a powerful antioxidant, that protects your skin from pollution and free radicals, therefore when used in conjunction with a good SPF makes for a first class ally in the anti ageing tool kit. Another great must have to incorporate into your skincare routine.

3. A Good SPF

SPFs are not just for sunny days and holidays. We all know that we should be using one daily. But for a lot of us, we have horrible memories of SPFs that were thick, gloopy and just didn’t sit well as a base for makeup. Thankfully today, the modern day SPF products are less oily, and give a great base for makeup.

Investing in an SPF no matter what your age, will really yield dramatic changes in the condition and quality of your skin. Not only will it reduce discolouration and pigmentation caused by the suns rays, it will also slow down the damage caused by UVA/UVB exposure and will prevent premature ageing.

So, there you have it. Adding these three products into your skincare routine can be done super easily, or you could even ditch the masses of products that you probably have cluttering up your bathroom cabinet and buy just these three items. Use them consistently for a 3 month period and let me know how it works for you.

Psssst: By the way, if you love the sound of these products but don’t know where to start, or which brand to turn to… I have some exciting news to announce very soon so keep your eyes peeled over on Facebook!

Have a wonderful week and I will speak to you again soon,

spring ready complexion

The Taylormade guide to a spring ready complexion.

The Taylormade guide to a spring ready complexion. 2000 1334 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

We’re talking clear, glowing, makeup free skin.

spring ready complexion

Hello it’s Helen, and today I wanted to talk to you about how to get a glowing, ‘hello spring’ ready complexion.

We can safely say that spring is at last ‘officially’ upon us. It’s that time of year where less is more, and that also applies to heavy face creams and makeup.

But as beautiful as that can look in the glossy magazines, it can leave some of us shuddering at the thought of having to ditch our winter makeup (heavy duty concealer anyone?)

If your skin isn’t in the best condition that it could be, you may dreading those extra hours of daylight and would prefer to hide under your duvet.

Never fear, Helen is here( I couldn’t resist that!)  and in this blog post I am going to share with you the treatments and tips that will give you your best spring ready complexion ever.

An inside out approach to beauty.

The inside: The mindset.

I believe in an inside out approach to beauty. And I am not simply talking about the food that you eat and the creams that you use to moisturise.

I also believe that aside from drinking plenty of water, and eating foods high in natural fats and proteins, that you need to work on your mindset.

Stress, and worrying about acne, or ageing will only worsenyour condition, as stress and anxiety produces cortisol, which in turn disrupts your hormone balance, which can be disastrous for your appearance. Not ideal when you’re trying to get your spring ready complexion is it!

My #taylormade tip: As you carry out your morning cleansing routine, turn your everyday habit into a #justforme ritual – as you wash or wipe away your cleansing product, say goodbye to worrying so much about your appearance and remind yourself that if you have a skin issue, with the right bespoke treatment you can soon sort it.

Repeat ‘I am totally in control of this’ – then contact Helen Taylor!

But seriously, life is way too short to be feeling down about something when there is actually something that you can do about it. So start by getting that mindset and then book your free consultation and come and see me.

The outside: (The treatments.)

Get your spring ready complexion with one (or more) of these treatments:

Hydrafacial: wins hands down when it comes to addressing a multitude of sins, from deep cleansing (skin detox), to rehydrating dry, parched skin. The Hydrafacial is the facial that celebrities swear by when they want resultsquickly.

I’d highly recommend that anybody book themselves in for a Hydrafacial because it has such an impact on so many areas, from Hyperpigmentation, to fine lines, wrinkles and acne, and let’s face it, most of us have more than one condition going on simultaneously. A real fast fix for your spring ready complexion.

Chemical Peel: We’ve all seen that episode of Sex + the City , where Samantha walks in for a chemical peel and walks back out looking like something from a horror film. Luckily today, chemical peels are less aggressive but still deliver a hefty impact. If you’re looking for a deep skin reveal, ready for spring and summer, a chemical peel could be what you are looking for.

Dermaroller: The derma roller is a favourite of Angelina Jolie, and is the secret behind many an enviable complexion. Fine needles are rolled across your skin, which then allows a deeper penetration of any skin products used, and kick starts your body’s own collagen production. This treatment is brilliant for skin regeneration and can work on smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles, scarring and can even work wonders on  stretch marks!

Profhilo, Fillers + Biofil: If you feel that your skin is lacking elasticity and you’ve noticed some rather depressing looking hollows, then adding in some lost volume (particularly under your eyes, with the tear trough treatment) can leaving you looking +  feeling refreshed from the outside in!

A super fast run down: fillers replace lost volume in a particular localised area, profhilo adds lost volume in general by replacing your depleted hyaluronic acid levels, and biofil does the same job as fillers but uses the plasma that we extract from your own blood sample.

Tempted by a treatment or two? You can find out more about them by heading to helentayloraesthetics.co.uk

However, if you are considering taking control of your appearance, and want to spring into action (pun intended!) then why not book your free consultation?

Coming to see me means that you can receive my Taylormade bespoke prescription for your best course of action.

I really don’t believe that you should just pick something from a menu and ‘guess’ that that’s the right treatment for you. You’re a woman who likes to feel like the individual that you are, so my mission is to make this whole experience very bespoke  for YOU.

So, book your free consultation and then come and see me and we can look at getting your skin spring ready.

Grab yourself a sandwich, get yourself comfortable – it’s time to delve into the world of  skin tightening.

skin tightening

Hello, it’s Helen and today I wanted to talk to you about skin tightening.

Have you found yourself looking in the mirror lately, and things just don’t seem as plump, tight or youthful as they used to be? It’s not necessarily that you have ‘wrinkles’ (although they certainly might be present), but somehow your face just isn’t as toned and tight as it once was.

You’ve worked your way through the expensive face creams, and serums, and have maybe even tried some ‘at home’ devices.

But somehow, you just don’t seem to get the results that you’re after, and you’re starting to feel a little ‘fed up with things’.

And – it’s not just about your face is it.. You may also be experiencing this on your body, from a flabby stomach to those pesky bingo wings! You understand that this is all a part of ageing, but if there was something that you could do about it, you’d be first in line to do it.

If any of this sounds familiar, then let me introduce you to your perfect solution:- welcome to the world of skin tightening.

Before we get down to the treatments, let’s talk about what exactly is skin tightening and who is the ideal candidate for it?

Skin tightening is something that is suitable really, for anyone over the age of 30 who is starting to experience what I’d call the very first signs of ageing.  It can be used as a preventative treatment, to stop your skin from slackening and it can also be used to tighten skin where it’s already happened.  Skin tightening on the body is less ‘age related’ and more to do with weight loss so this can be used by anybody.

Treatments that do the job when it comes to skin tightening:

Skin tightening solutions for the face..

Radiofrequency: Your skin will thank you when you treat yourself to radiofrequency. Here at the clinic we offer RF that can be used to target many areas, including the jowls, cheeks, and neck area. RF or ‘skin rejuvenation’ offers a tightening and lifting effect for those who don’t want to undergo surgery and can be used on both the face and body.

Profhilo: Fast becoming a celebrity favourite, Profhilo involves the injection of Hyaluronic Acid into the face, so that not only will you experience an immediate tightening effect it will also boost your own collagen production.

Profhilo gives an ‘inner glow’ effect that really is outstanding.

PDO Threads: Ideal for anyone above the age of 30, PDO threads target everything from crow’s feet to nasolabial and marionette lines (which run from the nose and mouth and contribute to a frown-like appearance), PDO thread-lifts are also beneficial for treating jowls and a sagging neck, as they help kill off fat cells.

Plasma Blast: The one with the longest downtime, Plasma is extremely impressive and effective as a skin tightening treatment, literally blasting away excess skin cells (by dehydrating them), this treatment can be used on both the upper and lower eyelids, as well as the neck and forehead area.

Skin tightening solutions for the Body:

Sagging skin indy.isn’t just a treatment just for your face, it can also works wonders on your body.

3D Lipo: The 3D Lipo machine not only destroys unwanted areas of fat, it can also be used to tighten loose and sagging skin, for example, that occurs after weight loss treatment. Using HiFU (high intensity focused ultrasound)  and RF (radiofrequency) skin can be toned and tightened quickly and can treat areas such as the stomach, bingo wings, thighs, and face.

You can also use treatments that we covered for the face, on the body: Plasma Blast can work wonders when used on the body to tighten to loose skin and PDO Threads can give a lift to areas such as your neck and breasts. Profhilo can be used for skin tightening on the hands, and RF can be used in multiple areas.

How soon will you see results + how often should you do it?

Skin tightening treatments are fantastic because you can usually see results fairly quickly. In fact all of the treatments that I have covered, will have you looking in the mirror saying ‘wow’ at the end of your very first session.

How many sessions you will need, depends upon your individual concerns and needs, and the best way to discover this is to book a free consultation so that we can discuss your TaylorMade treatment plan.

One thing that I will say, is that regardless of the amazing outcome that you get with one of the above treatments, day by day we arecontinually ageing. This means that in time, ageing will again become obvious, and a top up treatment may be advisable.

My TaylorMade recommendation:

I recommend that you get skin tightening treatments done as and when you need them. An initial course as advised above may be recommended after a consultation but if you are at all concerned about skin ageing and feel that skin tightening may be the answer for you, I recommendtreating your area of concern, little and often. 

When done professionally, skin tightening treatments can be extremely impressively effective.

Weight Loss

The TaylorMade way to kickstart your weight loss

The TaylorMade way to kickstart your weight loss 1000 658 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Looking good + feeling good has never been simpler

Weight Loss

Hello, it’s Helen, and as I write this blog post, I’m making the most of this lovely weather.  Of course depending on when you read this, it may or may not still be here..

It feels like Spring has made its grand entrance, , but summer is just around the corner – and whilst this welcome appearance of sunshine can result in a positive mindset, it can also bring a real damper…

Does any of this sound familiar? You’re stood in front of your closet, pulling out your oh so beloved sweater  when  suddenly (+ surprisingly) you realise that it’s time for a t.shirt…

A t.shirt? Erm.. but a … t.shirt? Aren’t most of us still carrying around the weight induced by Christmas?

Don’t panic.. No, really.. Don’t panic.

Because I am here with the TaylorMade way to kickstart your weight loss. Read this guide during your lunch break and then take rapid action, and very soon you’ll be on your way to manifesting your bikini body.

Weight loss and feeling good about yourself, has never been so simple.

1.   Throw that ‘diet’ out of the window.

Diets can (+ do) produce results really quickly. I know that, and you know that, but we also know what happens when we stop dieting. We suddenly pile the weight back on and this can leave us feeling both super inflated yet also deflated. Rather than turning to a fad celebrity diet plan, say hello to these simple tips: cut down on carbs, drink plenty of water, increase your vegetable intake, increase your protein and make exercise your new hobby.

When it comes to eating, think like a french girl : Enjoy everything in moderation, and taste a little bit of what you fancy, rather than polish off the dessert trolley.

2. Schedule your appointment + try 3D Lipo.

3D Lipo has fast developed a celebrity following and here at the Clinic, we have been inundated with bookings and emails, from those of you eager to try it.

With the ability to remove fat in a safe, non surgical way, the 3D Lipo machine can be used on both the face and body. Utilising methods called Cavitation (for inch loss)  and Cryolipolysis (to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat), fat cells are physically destroyed and then released back into the body.

With minimal downtime weight loss has never been this  easy.

Of course, this needs to be combined with a good weight loss plan that also covers food, exercise and mindset. But incorporate 3D Lipo into your bikini body plan and you’ll see the pounds disappear faster.

3. Get your bikini body mindset (+ as a result you’ll stick at this!)

One of the biggest reasons that we struggle with weight loss, is that we allow our mind and our desires to control us.

How many times have you been doing amazingly well on your health program and then your subconscious side tracks you and send you straight to  self sabotage?

I know, I know, that donut was just calling you….but if you’d also worked on your mindset, then you’d have been the one who was in control of things.

One fast way to rid yourself of that oh so annoying craving is to do this effective exercise, often used by Hypnotherapists:

Close your eyes, imagine the food that you have the most difficult time avoiding. See it, smell it, maybe even touch it…. Feels good doesn’t it? Next, think about something that you find repulsive and couldn’t imagine eating …… and imagine the food that you’re craving, smeared and thoroughly caked in it.

I know, it’s gross isn’t it, but if you can then visualize the food that you have a hard time resisting caked in whatever your ‘gross thing’ is, and then imagine taking a big bite into it… you’ll QUICKLY change your mind about wanting to eat it.

Try it, and let me know how you get on with this.

The beauty of this therapeutic technique, is that you can carry this out and nobody ever know that you’re doing it, which makes it great when you’re stood eyeing up those cakes in the patisserie!

The main thing that I want you to take away from this blog post, is the confidence to know that weight loss really can be simple. Us humans are great at over complicating things, and pardon the pun, but when it comes to weight loss, we can make a real meal  of it. If you can just stick to some simple and basic food principles, slot in a session for 3D Lipo, and get to grips with your weight loss mindset, results should come in fast for you.

As always, if you have any questions, then myself and Chloe and Katherine are here for you, and if you would like to book in for a treatment, then it’s as easy as heading here.

Looking forward to seeing those selfies of you on your summer holiday!

Until the next time,

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.

Skin Debunk

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.

Instead, chat to us about how we can devise a bespoke plan for you that’ll target all your skin woes and boost your confidence. Alternatively, book your free consultation here.

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?
