The Ultimate Mother's Day Gift
Updated: Jan 6, 2019
Mother's Day is right around the corner and hopefully most of us have started to think about gifts for the women that gave us life. All women want to look beautiful, but it would be insane to think that we could look young forever.
However, we can look like the best version of ourselves: refreshed, rejuvenated and renewed. This week's blog examines the many ways we can give our mother the Ultimate Mother's Day Gift.
1. Tired eyes: sunken eyes, eye bags, dark circles, loss of elasticity, wrinkles and Crow's feet. Our eyes often show up the ageing process the earliest, as skin around the orbit is the thinnest in the body. Loss of collagen and elastin is most apparent making wrinkles very common. As we age, the fat pad that fills that sits in our orbit is absorbed by the body giving us sunken eyes. But we can get back our beautiful eyes with a little help from friends.
Tear Trough Filler: Hyaluronic acid based fillers strategically placed around the lower aspect of the eye can compensate for the fat and bone loss that gives the appearance of sunken eyes and eye bags. The effects are immediate and transforming, easily wiping away years from a face.
This is an advanced procedure that carries risks, so it is important that you feel confident about the credentials of the injector. Check out our vouchers including tear trough filler starting at £300.
Crow's Feet Botox: Crow's feet and other upper face wrinkles are caused by the repeated contraction of muscles, and in this case the orbicularis oris muscle. Combine this with thinning skin and loss of collagen leads to the appearance of fine lines on movement and then deep permanent lines. Small does of Botox can remove these wrinkles and prevent deeply etched lines. This takes roughly 2 to 12 days to kick in, lasts for 4 -6 months and is well worth it. Have peek at our vouchers for Crow's feet Botox starting at £200.
The Eyebrow Lift: Over time the same orbicularis oculi muscle pulls the upper eye lid downwards. Bone reabsorption to the medial aspect of the eyebrow along with fat loss leads to a heavy brow. Small does of Botox to this area relaxes this muscle, opening up the eye to give a refreshed look. We have vouchers for the eyebrow lift starting at £200
2. The Fight Against Gravity: The youthful face has several fat pads and a thick strong underlying skull. This gives structure and plump features such as naturally contoured cheeks. As we age, the fat and underlying bone is absorbed and displaced resulting in a gradual downward slide of the facial features. This is the cause of nasolabial (smile) folds and Marionette lines.
Hyaluronic acid fillers injected deeply in and around the cheek and mid-face replenish the fat pad and underlying bone. This lifts the face... and your mood simultaneously. Again the effects are almost immediate, there are few side effects and a short down time if any. Not to mention the fillers can be dissolved so the procedure is reversible.
Mid-face Filler: This woman has had a combination of tear trough, mid face and zygomatic fillers. She may also have had some fillers to her nasolabial lines. Note the downward pull on her facial features before her treatment and the lifting effect after. Check out our vouchers for mid-face filler starting from £300
Nasolabial filler: Hyaluronic acid fillers directly the nasolabial folds, should be used after any mid-face depression has been corrected. We also have vouchers for nasolabial filler starting at £300
3. The Angry Mouth: Marionette lines, a down-turned mouth, smokers lines, thinning lips? All of these are the unfortunate tell-tale signs of ageing and it can even make the happiest mum look angry or sad.
The lower 1/3rd of the face falls victim to all the volume loss in both fat and bone that occurs higher up. It is where gravity has its greatest effect.
There are also several strong muscle groups acting in and around the mouth, which over time pull the mouth inferiorly and contribute to unsightly lines.
Luckily, we have options.
Botox to Smoker's Lines: Often caused by repeated contraction of the orbicularis oris muscle, the same muscle used to suck on a straw and whistle. These wrinkles are worsened by the lost of collagen and thinning of skin in the premolar area. Small doses of Botox to this muscle can relax these lines. Have a peek at our vouchers for smokers lines Botox starting from £200
Botox for a downturned mouth: Running from the corners of the mouth down the chin is the depressor anguli oris muscle. We activate this when we frown. Over time the pull of this muscle can leave us with a permanent frown or a downturned mouth. Botox comes to the rescue again, relaxing this muscle and helping to give us our smile back. We are happy to offer vouchers starting from £ 200
Filler to Marionette lines: Well placed hyaluronic acid filler to the oral commissure and Marionette lines combats the effect of gravity. The best effect is seen when combined with Botox to the DAO muscle two week prior. Check out our vouchers for Marionette line filler from £300.
Why not give your mum a gift to remember, one she will really appreciate day after day. We know that everyone has a different budget so we have a wide range of vouchers for Mother's Day. Each voucher usually covers a combination of treatments to give to maximum effect.
