Have your tried every beauty treatment and cream on the high street but nothing seems to be working? Well you’re in luck because it would seem men and women are no longer shying away from the world of non-surgical procedures, in fact they’re embracing the procedures that will aid the crusade for youthful looking skin. Whilst going under the knife has become increasingly less taboo it would seem that many are favouring the syringe and the mini facelift.


Botox is one of the most popular forms of non-surgical procedures to reduce anti-aging and it’s no surprise why. Botox gives you instant results so there’s no waiting around to see if it’s worked, there’s virtually no downtime after having the procedure so you can get on with your everyday life without having to be bedbound for days after and the best thing is it’s safe.

Chemical Peel

The chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world. Chemical peel uses an acid solution which is used to remove the damaged outer layers of skin, enhancing and smoothing the texture of your skin, which is perfect if you suffer from blemishes, uneven skin pigmentation, sun damage and wrinkles. Where a facelift tightens your skin to remove wrinkles and crows fee, chemical peel works in a way that will correct and improve the condition of your skin.

Jet Peel

Jet peel is the new alternative to microdermabrasion, where water and vitamins are sprayed over the skin at a very high speed sloughing off any dead cells whilst giving your skin deep hydration, which result in exfoliation of the skin and plumping. This will give you the desired look of smooth healthier skin. This procedure does five different jobs at once, it deep cleanses your skin, exfoliates it , hydrates it, oxygenates it and micro-circulates the treated area. This is perfect for improving the texture of your skin and giving your skin overall rejuvenation. It’s also very good for those who suffer with spots and blackheads.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers restore your skins volume and fullness correcting any wrinkles and folds. As your skin ages it loses collagen that helps shape and support it. Dermal fillers replace this volume giving your face a more youthful look. Dermal fillers can reduce wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, create fuller flips and give your face a more supple, toned look.

Laser surgery is one of the most popular procedures in the treatment of a range of problems and if you’re considering undergoing laser surgery, you’ll need all the information available to make an informed and considered decision.

What Does Laser Surgery Involve?

Despite the term ‘surgery’, laser surgery procedures are primarily non-invasive. The use of a laser can remove the top layer of skin and stimulates new growth in the area while other types of laser surgery will target lower levels of skin. Once the area is healed, the new skin is often smoother and healthier.

What Types of Laser Surgery Are Available?

Here at Wentworth Clinic we provide a range of laser surgery procedures including:

–    Laser wrinkle removal
–    Laser hair removal
–    Laser liposuction

Laser surgery can be effective in the treatment of wrinkles, thread veins, hair removal and skin tightening.

How Effective Are Laser Surgery Procedures?

When opting for laser surgery it’s essential that you speak with a qualified and experienced practitioner who can talk you through your options and advise you on how successful each treatment is likely to be.

Laser surgery procedures do not provide such a drastic outcome as cosmetic surgery such as face lifts would, but can deliver noticeable and highly positive results. The results are not permanent and will wear off over time so it’s important to receive regular treatments to maintain the results.

From greying hair to creaky knees, there are many signs of getting older and we all age differently but if there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s that wrinkles are one of the most obvious signs of our age and they’re a nightmare to get rid of! Botox is a widely used non-surgical method of keeping the wrinkles at bay and here at Wentworth Clinic we understand how important it us to look as young as you feel. We’ve put together a quick guide to give you all the information you need about Botox to help you decide if it’s the right choice for you:

What Is Botox?

Botulinum Toxin is actually a naturally occurring poison that has the ability to paralyse muscles and as a result, has been used for medical purposes for over 60 years.

What Is Botox Used For?

The most widely known use of Botox is, of course, as part of a cosmetic procedure to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the face. However, Botox is also used to treat a number of medical reasons that include facial spasms, a weak bladder and prevention of excess sweating.

Is It Dangerous?

Although Botox is highly poisonous, injecting Botox is not a dangerous procedure. However, there have been many deaths associated with the injection of fake Botox; consequently, it’s absolutely essential that you visit a licensed cosmetic surgery with registered nurses acting within a doctor’s instructions.

We urge you to not have this procedure carried out in a beauty salon, hairdressers’ or by any non-medical practitioner as this is illegal and you risk being injected incorrectly or with fake substances.

As with any cosmetic procedure, it’s essential that you are fully informed and comfortable with all aspects before any procedure is carried out. Here at Wentworth Clinic you are always our top priority and our experienced and highly skilled practitioners will talk you through everything you need to know.

Mini Facelifts often result in a rejuvenated and energised appearance; they can define certain areas of your face, or remove excess fat. These all contribute to the self-esteem factor, something that will undoubtedly be greatly improved once you’ve made the adjustments to your face that wish you for. Of course, whilst there are many benefits to a mini facelift, there are also precautions and elements you must take into consideration before taking the plunge. Here at Wentworth Clinic, we’re the experts in providing you with the nips and tucks you require, and as such, here are our important points to consider before undertaking a mini facelift!

Of course, the overall outcome should answer the question ‘am I right for a mini facelift?’ The appropriate candidate will need to take a number of factors into account, however two of the most important include:

  • Physical aptitude – Recovering and healing will require a great deal of energy, and as such previous medical conditions, as well as smoking and a general unfit lifestyle will complicate the procedure and make for unsuitable candidates.

  • Realistic expectations of the outcome – Being aware of the limitations as well as the complexities of the surgery are great assets to have. Good candidates will remain grounded with their expectations as well as optimistic. A mini-facelift doesn’t stop ageing altogether, but it can certainly alter your appearance for the better.

Of course, a mini facelift doesn’t involve intensive surgery, as is the case with its full-blown counterpart, and is generally ideal for those in their late 30’s – 50’s who wish to take perhaps five years off their appearance by way of the removal of sagging skin around the cheeks and neck area.

Recovery time is also something to consider, as you will require at least one week away from work, with lots of rest and ideally someone to look after you. Is this a feasible eventuality?

With all these things to consider, as well as host of questions you’ll want to ask your surgeon (good examples are, what to eat and drink, recovery time, the amount of pain involved and how long the results will last) here at Wentworth Clinic, we’re professional cosmetic surgeons, and are sure you’ll feel safe with us!
