Aesthetic Clinic
An aesthetic clinic is a clinic where cosmetic procedures are carried out on patients by qualified and trained Aesthetic Doctors/Dentists. The cosmetic procedures can be surgical or non-surgical.

Angel Lift PRP

Angel Lifts, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment – PRP, uses the platelets found in your blood to promote the production of collagen and elastin in your skin. Put simply, an Angel Lift involves injecting the PRP solution into the skin and tissues underneath to promote hydration, smoothness and decreases wrinkles and fine lines producing a glowing beautifully textured skin and a youthful glow. It uses your own cells to rejuvenate the skin and tissues rather than a synthetic material made in a laboratory.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels are topical treatments used to peel away dead skin cells to reveal the new, smooth skin beneath. Chemical Peels can be used to address skin concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, dull skin, loss of elasticity, acne, redness, pigmentation and a range of other concerns. At The London Clinic we provide Chemical Peels in a variety of strengths from;

  • Party Peels (providing you with that beautiful glow and smooth texture for perfect make up application)
  • Superficial, Moderate and Deep Peels

Clinical Facials
Clinical Facials are topical treatments that are usually applied on a patient’s face and neck but can also be applied to their back and chest. They are performed at our clinic to address issues such as dull skin, uneven skin tone, signs of aging, acne, hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Their main function is to clean pores, exfoliate dead skin cells and remove bacteria. Leaving the skin healthier and glowing.

Cosmetic Injectables
Cosmetic injectables are synthetic substances that are injected into the skin and tissue to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, enhance features, replace volume loss and correct asymmetries or deformities.

Dermal Fillers
Dermal Fillers are gel-like substances, typically made of synthetic Hyaluronic Acid, that are injected under the skin into the tissue and fat to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase volume, enhance facial contours or correct asymmetries and deformities. One appointment usually takes up to 45 minutes and results can last anywhere between 6 and 18 months. Popular treatments include facial fillers, lip fillers, brow lifts, cheek enhancements, forehead enhancements, nonsurgical rhinoplasty (nose) and hand rejuvenation and Beauty Boosters to enhance the skins texture and glow. 

Dermapen

Dermapen is a micro-needling treatment that promotes the production of collagen and improves the appearance of scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, pigmentation and other skin imperfections. The procedure is minimally invasive and involves small needles that cause micro punctures in the skin, activating the body’s natural wound healing and skin renewal responses. Also known as Collagen Stimulation Therapy.

Plaxpot Plasma Pen
Plaxpot or Plasma Pen is a minimally-invasive treatment that can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars and other imperfections. A hand-held plasma technology device is used to heat the dermis in the targeted areas. These areas will then shed after treatment, allowing new collagen to be produced and new skin to form.

Red Vein Removal
Read vein removal at The London Clinic Cosmetics involves the use of a high-frequency energy device to remove “spider veins”. There is minimal or no scarring involved and results in an immediate improvement of the skin’s appearance.

Skin Boosters or Beauty Boosters
Skin Boosters/Beauty Boosters are micro-injections of Hyaluronic Acid just under the skin that improve the skin’s overall firmness, smoothness and elasticity. They deliver hydration deep in the skin and are usually administered in the face, neck, décolletage and the back of the hands where skin is more delicate. Although skin boosters are made of the same substance as dermal fillers, skin boosters do not increase volume as the Hyaluronic Acid is of a much thinner consistency.

Skin Tightening
Skin Tightening treatments at The London Clinic Cosmetics involve a radio-frequency system used to gentry warm the tissue deep beneath the skin surface to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. It is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without needles or surgery.

Wrinkle Relaxers
Wrinkle Relaxers are made from the protein from the toxin released by a bacterium – Botulinum. This protein solution is injected under the skin to temporarily block the nerve signals that control muscle movement, giving the skin a smoother and more youthful appearance. Wrinkle Relaxers are used to address fine lines, wrinkles and relaxing facial expression. They are most commonly used in areas such as the forehead, crow’s feet, brows and jawline. Wrinkle Relaxers can also be referred to as anti-wrinkle injections, wrinkle injections, neuromodulators and cosmetic injections.
