Fillers & Threads

Dermal Fillers + Thread Lifts – 3 reasons why my clients LOVE them

Dermal Fillers + Thread Lifts – 3 reasons why my clients LOVE them 1000 667 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

(and what YOU can expect from getting them).

Here at the Helen Taylor Clinic in Rugby, both Dermal Fillers and Thread Lifts have become ever increasingly popular. I believe that is because both of the treatments deliver results that look stunningly natural.

And let’s be brutally honest here – isn’t that what we’re really looking for? Results that are stunning, yet natural?

Gone are the days where getting facial fillers or lip fillers  meant that you had to have something that did not move naturally, injected into your face.

Today, with Hyaluronic Acid taking over as being the most popular material used in both dermal and lip fillers, results are subtle and natural  (we naturally produce HA in the body).

And going that extra mile in talking ‘natural’, here at my Clinic, Biofil is also extremely popular. Biofil  involves taking a sample of blood from you and then filling your lips, lines and hollows with your very own plasma. You can find out more about Biofil here

Fillers & ThreadsFillers or threads? What is the difference?

Fillers, you may be familiar with but you may also be curious about ‘thread lifts. A common question that I am asked here, is ‘what is the difference between fillers and a thread lift?’ , and my answer is super simple. Dermal fillers and lip fillers replace lost volume, whereas threads are used to give lift to a certain area.

Combine the two treatments together and you’re going to experience a very NATURAL looking facelift, for a fraction of what you’d pay a plastic surgeon (no to mention there are NO knives involved here! Phew!).

PDO Threads can be used for improving areas such as crow’s feet, nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and involves very little downtime, you can return back to work almost immediately! Results are virtually instant, and can last for between 2-3 years.

When you look at the results, recovery time and cost and compare it to surgery, you have to feel a little bit sorry for the plastic surgeons everywhere – it really is a no brainer. Why choose more pain, more money and a longer recovery period when you can experience such highly effective aesthetic treatments?

So, here are 3 reasons why my clients LOVE fillers and threads, and what YOU can expect from getting them.

1. Nobody need ever know that you had them.

Okay, I do get it. On one level, you WANT people to know that you’ve had aesthetic work done. I mean, who wants to walk out of the clinic looking like how they did when they entered it? You’ve made the decision to have fillers and/or threads because you’re looking for a difference. However…..

You want to look (and feel) like ‘YOU’ again.

You also dread the thought of popping out to Waitrose and the lady behind the counter saying ‘have you had some work done?’. Today’s fillers produce a very natural, soft and healthy change in your appearance.

2. YOU are in control of the look that we achieve with them.

Many people who I have talked to about their resistance in booking in and going for it, tell me that they are petrified of looking like a plumped up celebrity. They want to have a little something done, but they just want to look like themselves again… don’t worry, after your free consultation with me I will know exactly the sort of look that you are hoping for, and we will can even create it gradually.

When you choose to take control of how you feel about your appearance, but are nervous about things perhaps being ‘too dramatic’ YOU get to start off slowly. For example, 0.5ml of dermal filler or lip filler will mean that you can see a difference, yet nobody need ever know you’ve had it.

You may then decide that you want some more put in, hence us being able to build on things gradually. This is about me helping you to feel look and feel like ‘you’ again. Hence my Taylormade brand ethos.

3. You can have it done discreetly.

Unlike surgery, where you’d need to suddenly become unavailable (‘Oh I’ve gone on a surprise skiing trip!) nobody really need know that you’re going to have a procedure done. . With minimal downtime you are able to go about your daily activitiesas soon as you feel it’s possible.

Of course, with both dermal and lip fillers, and also threads, there will be some mild swelling and possible bruising. You are going to feel a little sensitive. But it’s going to be something that you possibly notice more than anybody else would.

And with late night appointments being available on a Thursday, you can even pop and get something done after hours. Book your consultation and let’s get things started.

So, tell me – what is that is REALLY stopping you? Come and join us on Facebook, or send me a message. Book in for your free consultation and let’s talk about it.

Looking forward to treating you!

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.

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.

Facial Fillers – and Four Places You Can Have Them!

Facial Fillers – and Four Places You Can Have Them! 1024 1024 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Fillers can dramatically improve the appearance of your face – but when you think about them, what’s the first thing that springs to mind? It’s probable that it’s the image of plumped up lips, but did you know you can also have filler injected in various areas of the face?

It’s the reason they’re referred to as ‘facial fillers’ and not just ‘lip fillers’ – and the type we use here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics offers benefits which last several months.

In the Lips

Enhancing your natural pout, lip fillers can make your pout appear healthier and more feminine – and they can easily be broken down over the course of a few months. What that means for you is your fillers won’t be a permanent fixture in your face; if you decide you’d like to go au naturale again, you can!

In the Cheeks

Plumping the area for a fresher, brighter look, cheek filler is performed by our highly-skilled team to give you more confidence in the way you look.

Correcting sunken cheeks and contouring the area to restore lost volume, cheek filler is a safe option for anyone who’s looking to spoil themselves with a treatment in 2019; go on, get booked in and look forward to a new you in the new year.

For the Tear Trough

Focusing on the depressions and droopiness that can appear under the eyes, tear trough facial filler treatment can make you look fresher and more youthful. It’s needed when the bone and the skin loses density, due to age.

If this is you, you may find that you have eye bags or dark circles – but the tear trough plasma filler treatment at Helen Taylor Aesthetics can help a great deal.

To Replace Surgical Rhinoplasty

It can be massively daunting to go ‘under the knife’, but if you’ve always wanted a daintier-looking nose and don’t want to commit to surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty– via the wonder of facial filler – is the route to go down.

This safe filler is also hugely effective – so why not chat to our team here at the clinic and get booked in for your free, no-obligation consultation?

We’d also be happy to talk you through any concerns about facial filler – or answer any of your questions. Plus, if you’re feeling anxious about your upcoming visit to the clinic, this blog should help prepare you.

All-Natural Fillers

It’s called Biofil and it contains your own blood. Sounds gruesome but it really does pack a punch when it comes to boosting your appearance – and with it, your confidence. Once reinjected into the skin, the filler can target the appearance of wrinkles, but it can also be used to treat much larger areas. Biofil is a vegan-friendly product that has revolutionised the aesthetics industry. It uses a plasma-based product extracted from your blood and it works to add volume wherever you need it.

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.

The Cog Lift: Your Questions Answered

The Cog Lift: Your Questions Answered 2000 2000 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Ever wondered what a cog lift is? If you have a question or two, we have the answers, having sat down with our founder Helen to get the inside scoop on this revolutionary treatment – one of many to be added to our brimming menu here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics in Rugby.

A cog lift is an effective treatment designed to lift and tighten sagging skin tissue. Re-defining facial contours and offering results which can last up to three years, the threads used in a cog lift treatment will form an integral support structure for the tissue of the face. This is due to collagen synthesis – and the lifting effect reaches its peak six months later, when collagen forms around the threads.

Read on to learn more about this popular treatment.

What happens during a cog lift?

During a PDO cog lift treatment, small threads are inserted into the skin in the optimum places to achieve a desired lift.

Who can the cog lift treatment help?

People who suffer with dropped contours in their face, neck and potentially other areas of their body can benefit from the cog lift.

Is the cog lift better for mature skin?

Depending on skin type, anything from the medications you’re taking to your skin type can affect the outcome of this lift treatment. For example, thicker skin types may require a different type of thread to achieve desired results. We will, of course, discuss this in your initial consultation at Helen Taylor Aesthetics.

Can the cog lift benefit someone in their 20s?

No, this treatment is for over 30s. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss any treatments which are better suited to your individual age bracket.

What about the recovery time for the cog lift? Can patients be back to work straight after?

Potentially, they can. However, there may be some discomfort for 24 to 48 hours after, as well as some bruising.

What’s the price of the cog lift at Helen Taylor Aesthetics?

For this treatment, price is on application. The cost varies, due to the number of threads used. However, please note that this price includes a follow-up appointment three months later, where additional threads can be inserted to achieve the optimum lift or result.

What’s the waiting time for a cog lift at you’re the clinic?

Currently it is two to three weeks, but it’s always best to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Are you interested in trying the cog lift for yourself? Get in touch with our team or book a no-obligation consultation at Helen Taylor Aesthetics.
