  • The POWER of Vitamin C

    The POWER of Vitamin C

    Vitamin C is a POWERHOUSE ingredient which has been used in skincare for years but what is it?

    Vitamin C is an important antioxidant which protects the skin from Free Radicals - the pesky & unstable molecules which can damage the cells in our body, especially as we age, which can cause the skin to age, cause fine lines & wrinkles as well as affecting the texture & tone of the skin.

    Vitamin C comes in many forms but its L-ascorbic Acid which effectively protects our skin from the cell damage - see for yourself… Two slices of apple, both left in moderate sunlight for 8 hours, one with Obagi Vitamin C Serum 15% and one with nothing. As you can see the slice of apple with nothing has massively deteriorated & showing discolouration as well as an uneven texture, whereas the slice with 5-7 drops of Obagi Vitamin C Serum is still clear, bright, crisp & plump. This experiment mimics the effect this powerful ingredient has on the skin in an environment which matches that of an average office for a typical working day!

    Apply your Vitamin C on clean skin every morning before your moisturiser & SPF for maximum protection against ageing & keep your skin clear, bright & wrinkle free!

    We have a range of Vitamin C products to suit a range of skin types, speak with one of our therapists on your next visit to find the right one for you!!

  • Laser Hair Removal

    Laser Hair Removal

    Say good bye to shaving and waxing by booking yourself a course of laser hair removal.

    Here at Innersense Aesthetics @ Wetherby in Leeds, we use the Inmode Diolaze diode laser machine. It has one of the largest treatment spot sizes, meaning treatment is quick, easy and very comfortable. The Diolaze penetrates energy & heats the root of the hair, which in turn prevents future hair growth.

    Diolaze can be safely used on most areas of the body that produce unwanted hair. Commonly treated areas include: bikini, legs, underarms, arms, chest, back, shoulders, stomach, neck, chin and sideburns.

    How Quickly Will I See Results From Diolaze XL™? Diolaze XL immediately destroys hair follicles after your very first treatment. You can expect to see consistent long term results after just a few sessions of this laser hair removal treatment at our Wetherby Clinic in Leeds. Improvement to the skin’s texture and smoothness will be noticed as well.

    For optimal results, clients are recommended to purchase a treatment package for faster reduction of hair growth and hair-free skin. Our Wetherby, Leeds Diolaze XL™ treatment experts will provide you with professional advice on how many sessions you might need in order to achieve optimal results.

  • Lips to love

    Lips to love

    Lips to Love - Questions we get asked all the time about lip fillers.

    Will I get a duck lip? All our lip dermal filler treatments are carried out by experienced Aesthetic Nurses who have been trained to the highest standard & have a full understanding of the lip anatomy and that the perfect lips are often described as a full bottom lip with an upper lip that slightly projects. Using dermal fillers from the Juvederm Ultra / Vycross range it is possible to help shape, plump & define the lip to the ideal shape.

    Will it hurt? The Juvederm Vycross / Ultra range include lidocaine, which can help reduce discomfort during the procedure. We will always apply numbing cream 10-15 minutes before hand making the procedure even more comfortable. Your lips will feel quite numb straight after and maybe a bit tender for a few days after.

    Are there any risks? Having any dermal fillers do not come without risk. Some risks are greater than others such as some redness, swelling and bruising which although this may not look great, it will always settle within a week leaving lovely shaped lips. It is always best to not have your lips treated just before a big event & always allow 2 weeks for your lips to truly settle.

    How long will it last? Most patients will require treatment every 6 months although in some cases it may take more than one visit to reach the desired look.

    What if I don’t like them, can I just have them dissolved? You should never have it in your mind that you can just dissolve your lips if you don’t like them. Again, dissolving lips doesn’t come without risk and really should only be used in an emergency situation. |If you are nervous about the look always start with 1/2ml Juvederm and build up over time.

    Its time to stop dreaming and start doing…. talk to your Aesthetic Nurse to find out how Juvederm can give you lips to love.

  • Get your legs summer 2022 ready with Sclerotherapy

    Get your legs summer 2022 ready with Sclerotherapy

    Did you know we offer Sclerotherapy to treat spider veins on your legs?

    What does it involve? After a medical consultation with Nurse Lee, you will be asked to sit on the bed, the effected areas cleansed & images taken. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein that feeds the spider veins. The sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to scar, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades. Sclerotherapy is often used for cosmetic reasons as and have very few risks although temporary side effects can arise such as bruising & redness. Treatment time 45-60 minutes.

    After you will be asked to wear compression stockings for 3-4 days following treatment & are vital to treatment success, aid in shrinkage of the treated veins, improve blood circulation and lessen the risk of blood clots to the legs. Avoid strenuous exercise such as running and leg weight training for 2-3 days after treatment. yet 15-20 minutes of walking daily is recommended. Wear your compression stockings during activity if possible. Avoid soaking in hot baths for 1 week after treatment. Showers are fine starting the day after treatment. Avoid sun exposure and wear SPF 30 sunscreen.

    After sclerotherapy, treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take a month or more to see the full results. In some instances, several sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.
