Treating Veins With Sclerotherapy.
Bulging veins on the legs are generally something we usually associate with the elderly, so it must be a real source of embarrassment for those who suffer with them – especially when you’re not (and do not feel) old. Not to mention the pain some people suffer with problem veins and blood vessels. If you’re one of these people suffering from varicose veins maybe Sclerotherapy can help.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that involves a injection being deposited into the vein or blood vessels that are protruding in order to reduce or eradicate the visibility of the unwanted vessels or veins. It works by injecting a substance that causes the vein or vessel to swell and react, to make the walls of the unwanted vessel stick together and eventually fade.
Most problem veins and blood vessels will disappear from visible view after the treatment. However some veins do need more than one session or treatment in order to get the best possible results from this procedure. Spider veins will also be reduced as a result of this procedure.
Like all procedures there are risks involved that need to be carefully thought about before undergoing this treatment. Some possible side effects or risks include slight change in pigmentation along the treated vein, possible bruising, blistering and pain along the site of the targeted vein.
There are many positives to undergoing this procedure. Firstly, you will be able to enjoy and join in on actives that your perturbing veins may have made you unable to take part in or feel too self-conscious to get involved. Secondly, it can help ease or remove the pain your may be suffering due to your bulging veins or blood vessels. Finally, the boost you will gain from the treatment is amazing; having veins or vessels that are noticeable can really affect your confidence to removing irritating blood vessels.
After the procedure patients are free to go home or return to work right after the treatment. However, compression bandages will have to be worn by the patient for 3 weeks after the procedure. The procedure isn’t entirely painless and certain elements within the injection are known to cause some pain and discomfort, especially if injected outside the vessel wall.
This procedure is suitable for anyone that is suffering with visible veins and blood vessels, those with varicose veins are also suitable for this treatment. Like any treatment you suitability to undergo the treatment will also rest on the state of your general health. You will also be examined by the cosmetic professional to check your suitability for this treatment. If you have any further questions or would like more information on the risks involved in this treatment we suggest you talk to your surgeon, doctor or cosmetic professional.

Get kissable lips for the Christmas mistletoe smooch
Are you hoping for a Christmas kiss under the mistletoe? If so, you should have the most voluptuous and kissable lips possible! Unfortunately most of us are not gifted with a naturally plump pout. So what are the options? We take a look at the cosmetic products and treatments out there to help you gain fuller looking lips – and also ask a cosmetic professional for their advice.
It might be the oldest trick in the book, but it’s a classic for a reason – exaggerating the lip line with the help of makeup. To achieve this, simply follow the natural shape of your lips with a neutral coloured lip liner pencil, but draw slightly over your natural lip line. Go easy with this technique though – this trick can provide subtle and believable results if done in moderation, but can equally look artificial if you overdo it. Once the liner is complete, simply fill in your lips with your lipstick or gloss, but make sure you use an application brush to stay in the lines you’ve drawn. This is the perfect ‘quick fix’ – it can simply be wiped away at the end of the night and provides subtle results. It’s also best for those on a tight budget, as many people will already own all the products needed.
If you are looking for a product that gives you noticeable results but won’t break the bank, lip plumping glosses and serums might be for you. Lip plumping products work by very mildly irritating the lips in order to force them to swell slightly, and therefore create the illusion of fuller lips. It does not hurt, but you may feel some slight tingling when you first apply the product. These products are perfect for those looking for a slightly more effective answer than straight forward makeup, but do not want to spend too much money.
If you are looking for a long-lasting solution, though, lip augmentation treatment might be for you. Lip augmentation is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that allows patients to visibly adjust the size and shape of their lips in a controlled way with dermal filler injections. This is the perfect option for those looking to achieve fast, noticeable and long-lasting result. With almost instant results that last up to 6 months, lip augmentation ticks all the boxes.
Dr Thevendra, a cosmetic doctor at Apsaras cosmetic practice, specialises in non-surgical cosmetic treatments like lip augmentation treatment. He said: “Lip augmentation is ideal for those looking to enhance the size or shape of their lips; it offers you more control than any other treatment. It is administered by injection, meaning the volume and amount can be altered to fit the patient’s needs. Lip augmentation is now one of my most requested treatments, and one I personally enjoy performing, because of the confidence enhancing properties and the instantaneous results.”
Anti-ageing Injectable Treatments – Is Botox The Answer?
The benefits of injectables such as Botox have long been known as a secret of the rich and famous for holding back the hands of time, and is often described as the stand-alone star of non-surgical aesthetics. With very little risk and downtime, this injectable treatment offers fantastic results and can be used alongside other treatments to create a well-rounded non-surgical treatment plan for men and women.
Botox seems to have revolutionised the way we view cosmetic surgery. No longer is the mention of surgery taboo, and it’s largely down to this small muscle relaxing injection. So the question to ask is “Can Botox really be the answer to the youthful appearance we’re all wanting?”
Let’s start with the basics – what is Botox?
Botox is an injectable substance that temporarily relaxes the muscle it is injected into. It’s due to these muscle paralysing characteristics that is used within cosmetic surgery. It’s is mostly used in within facial muscles in order to prevent lines and wrinkles developing through the normal use of facial muscles. It’s also used for other issues such as to block sweat glands in order to prevent over excessive perspiration. However its most popular use is a facial muscle relaxer to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles like crows feet.
There is no shortage of cosmetic procedures out there, both invasive and non invasive, that promise to offer patients the time reversing effect they crave, so why has Botox specifically grown so much in popularity?
For one, the evidence of its effectiveness is over-whelming. Most people probably know someone who has had the anti-ageing treatment, and they look (on the whole) great for it.
However, this is not the only reason Botox has become the most popular treatment of the cosmetic world, and the age of celebrity culture and social media means we know many celebrities that now have cosmetic treatments. More and more public figures, including Madonna and Nicole Kidman, have admitted to having a little help from Botox and the other injectables like it. Cosmetic injections have now become more socially acceptable allowing celebrities and normal folk alike to rid their crows feet, smooth their lined forehead and erase laughter lines.
So what is Botox specifically good for? It’s a great way to stop lines, wrinkles and general imperfections in your skin in their tracks before they get the chance to create deep set wrinkles. There has been an increase in the numbers of younger patients that are using Botox thinking prevention is better than a cure, but generally it’s not recommended for patients younger than 35.
The majority of patients contemplating surgery are looking for the most natural looking result possible and Botox – like all muscle relaxing injections – can help you look more youthful without surgery.
Everyone is different and what works for some people doesn’t fit well with others. However muscle relaxing injections like Botox really are great tools in the fight against ageing for most, if carried out professionally and sensibly like cosmetic doctors like Dr Thevendra.

Get flawless skin in time for Christmas with Medical Micro-Needling
Having damaged skin – which can be caused by anything from acne to lifestyle choices – can really take its toll on your self-esteem and leave many people looking for a solution. Medical micro-needling aims to reverse any issues your skin might have and make it more even, youthful and firm.
Medical micro-needling is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that aims to vastly improve the look of scarring, which can be left after the skin conditions such as acne. It is one of the best ways to clear up the skin without surgical intervention. Medical Micro-needling treatment involves injecting tiny needles into the facial tissue in order to puncture the skin, which promotes faster healing times and the production of collagen; this helps reduce the visibility of scars.
Medical micro-needling treatment is a relatively quick treatment that requires little recovery time and can produce rapid results. Although it is strongly suggested that patients attend between 4 and 6 sessions of medical micro-needling for optimum results, in some cases patients have reported results from the first session. This is not something that happens in most cases, but a visible improvement should be seen relatively quickly for almost all patients. During a course of medical micro-needling, each session should be at least four weeks apart.
Of course, medical micro-needling treatment comes with minor potential risks involved. The main risk involved with medical micro-needling treatment is infection, but the chance of this happening is minimized dramatically if your treatment is performed by a fully qualified cosmetic professional. Patients may also experience some bruising, swelling and bleeding as a result of their treatment, but it should begin to subside within 1-2 days.
Medical micro-needling can be incredibly beneficial to the right patient, but what does a cosmetic expert say about the treatment? Dr. Thevendra, a cosmetic doctor at Apsaras Practice, told us not only what he thinks about medical micro-needling, but why it is the perfect time of year to begin the procedure.
Dr Thevendra specialises in non-surgical cosmetic treatments, and has a specific interest in medical micro-needling, particularly in combination with other non-surgical cosmetic treatments. He had the following to say about the treatment. “Medical micro-needling is a great treatment that allows patients to address their problem skin head on. It is the perfect cosmetic treatment for the festive season, because, if they start now, the patient will be able to see results by Christmas, and be well on their way to beautiful skin by 2015! All cosmetic treatments can have a profound impact on patients’ confidence, but medical micro-needling in particular is great at this because many of the patients who undergo the treatment have struggled with their skin for years.”

What is it?
Lustre Pure Light Treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that allows patients to gain visible improvements in the look and feel of their skin without the need for surgical intervention or skin damaging procedures.

Eventually, they stumbled across 420 wavelength blue light – this forms the primary part of Lustre Pure Light treatment.
How does it work?
The bacteria that causes acne also produces a chemical called porphyrin. Lustre works as an effective treatment of acne and other skin conditions as the blue light that is used within the treatment excites the chemical porphyrin, which is chemically proven to kill the bacteria that is responsible for acne and other skin conditions.
What are the risks?
There are no known risks to Lustre Pure Light Treatment, due to its safe UV free blue light technology, and any possible damage that could have been created to the skin is eradicated leaving it very safe for use.
Although there are no known risks involved with this procedure there are plenty of positives to the treatment. For example, patients will see a clear improvement in the condition of the skin and vast improvement in the condition of skin problems such as adult acne.

With good reason, you want to make sure not only that they are understand and can deliver the results you want but also take every precaution possible to ensure your safety.

Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Treatments For Youthful Skin
To many of us, our skin requires a lot of TLC, especially amongst women. Studies have shown that the average woman will spend £279.41 a year on facial rejuvenation and skin care products, adding up to a massive £18,000 in her lifetime.
Many women state that they don’t mind spending certain amounts of money on skin products if they do actually work. Ageing comes on top for the types of skincare products that women are purchasing on a daily basis. With anti-wrinkle creams clogging up our TV adverts, and women investing in the advertised creams to try and prevent ageing from appearing on their face, it is no wonder that this much money is being spent each year.
It’s not just ageing that people are trying to combat. Many have scarring, spots, pimples, and blotchiness or skin pigmentation issues. Some people may have come to terms with the ageing process, but might want to restore volume in their face to regain youth again. Whatever your skin desires, Dr. Thevendra has the non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments to solve your skin issues.
Whether these high street creams actually do their job is for the customer to decide, but Dr. Thevendra offers an array of non-surgical anti-ageing treatments that have guaranteed results.
The most popular non-surgical procedures to treat wrinkles on the face are muscle relaxing injections, with the brand, Botox, leading the way. But did you know that Botox is also used to treat a variety of health issues, such as excessive sweating, too.
Usually, Botox is administered between the brows and around the eyes to diminish wrinkles and signs of ageing. Botox can also be used for facial and neck slimming but as well it can treat scarring and spots. Results of this form of facial rejuvenation last up to 6 months and top-ups are required to further see improvements.
If your skin is drooping on your face, Silhouette Soft could be your answer to your facial rejuvenation needs, and acts a lot like a 30 minute non-surgical facelift. It is a technological innovation that redefines the face and restores volume, both at the same time.
The procedure comes in the form of bidirectional and absorbable thread cones. A discreet and immediate lifting effect can be achieved by reshaping the treated area through a mean of compression and elevating of the tissue, all as soon as the suture is applied.
A gradual and natural regenerating effect is attained by the component of the suture – polylactic acid which stimulates the natural production of collagen – is absorbed, thus restoring shapeliness to the face. Results last up to 18 months.
Aqualyx Fat Reduction Injections
Aqualyx is a water solution which is injected into stubborn fat areas around the body. Its aim is to reduce the fat in the targeted area and prevent it from producing in the future. It contains plant polymers, which binds with the cell walls of the fat tissue before rupturing and releasing the fat to be dissolved. The body then releases the fatty acids naturally, usually through urination. It can be used upon the whole face or target certain areas such as the cheek, chin or neck. This is not a weight loss treatment – it is used for body contouring and slimming down stubborn fat areas. Results of this form of facial rejuvenation are immediate to some extent, but optimum results are achieved after 2-8 sessions with Aqualyx, based on your individual requirements. Exercise and nutrition should be continued afterwards to further improve and maintain the results.
Accent RF treatment is able to change the shape of fat cells, and shrink and remodel the connective tissue that forms this unsightly condition. The device uses radio frequency which is delivered to the tissue with continuous contact cooling that provides additional patient comfort and epidermal protection. The treatment is ideal for; face and neck remodelling, reducing wrinkles, fat reduction and increasing luminosity of the skin along with some other body issues too. It tightens the skin by promoting a healthy collagen production which improves your skins elasticity and surface texture, giving it a more youthful appearance.
MyCells PRP (Dracula Therapy)
Dr. Thevendra offers a MyCells PRP treatment, widely known as ‘Dracula Therapy’ and the ‘vampire facelift’. The treatment uses the body’s own platelets, found in the blood vessels, and place them outside the the blood stream upon the skin. They are then activated by various chemicals to release growth factors and to release chemicals that attract stem cells to the area of injury. The growth factors stimulate cells such as fibroblasts to produce new collagen and the stem cells can hang into epidermal cells that are normally present in the outer layer of the skin, fibroblasts in the dermis (deep layer of skin) or even pre-adipocytes which are cells with the ability to convert into fat cells, important in the face to maintain plumpness.
This form of facial rejuvenation procedure can be used on the cheeks, jaw line, neck and whole face, along with other parts of the body too. The results last up to 18 months.
If you want to combat those inevitable but wanted wrinkles, clear your skin of spots and bumps, or if wish to tighten your skin, then book a consultation with Dr. Thevendra at the APSARAS clinic to discuss the best options for you and fully rejuvenate your face.

Lip Augmentation At APSARAS Clinic
The media is full of images of full-lipped beauties and has been for many years. Whether it’s Jade Jagger’s full pout gracing the catwalk or Angelina Jolie’s bee stung lips on the silver screen.
Full lips are a concept of femininity that has been perpetuated for years and years and if you’re not born with naturally full lips, it can be a real source of annoyance. You can try all the tricks in the book to achieve full lips with makeup but it doesn’t provide a permanent result that you might wish for.
So, when makeup doesn’t work, what other option do you have to achieve that full lip? Maybe it’s time to think about taking a cosmetic route in the form of non-surgical lip augmentation.
Non-surgical lip augmentation is a cosmetic treatment that involves a cosmetic filler being injected into the lips in order to plump up the appearance. It’s a simple procedure that offers you the fuller lips you are looking for without the need to opt for more drastic surgical options. It makes much more sense and most people are eligible for this treatment.
Whether you have always been unhappy with the thinness or your lips or have simply lost some volume to your lips over the years, non-surgical lip augmentation can solve these issues. When considering lip augmentation, a lot of people can worry about how natural the results will look and they are within good reason. Most of us do not want our cosmetic treatments to be obvious or too dramatically different to the point where we don’t look like ourselves anymore. Non-surgical lip augmentation can give you the natural look to your lips that most of us are looking for.
There is another option to surgery, called ‘Cinderella lips’. Cinderella lips is a non-surgical injection that is injected into the lip-line in order to plump them up in a similar way to other fillers, but they only last for 24-48 hours – hence the name of the treatment.This enables you to test whether you like the results of fillers before committing to a longer lasting filler.
On average lip fillers last for 6-12 months, so making sure you will like the results you are left with is a smart move – not just for your bank balance, but for your self-esteem too. Pursuing with a non-surgical lip augmentation does have its positives and it can do amazing things for your self-confidence.
Having thin or thinning lips can be a real knock to your confidence. Lips are a noticeable feature and it is known that the lips of a female should be plump and ‘kissable’ So, if you’re not blessed with natural full lips it can make you feel almost unfeminine a unattractive.
Alternatively if you were blessed with fuller lips in your youth and you’ve noticed a loss of volume in your lips, this treatment can help restore your full lip again. Some may say it’s just a natural part of getting older and that’s true but that doesn’t mean you’re ready to let your face lose its volume yet. Non-surgical lip augmentation can help you fight these issue you may face and help you rebuild the self-confidence you’ve lost along the way.
If lip augmentation is something you are considering or would like more information on, we would suggest booking a consultation with Dr. Thevenda of APSARAS Aesthetic Practice.
