Sharai Toner's Story: Anti-Ageing Treatment
 

As you may already be aware from my previous blog posts, I love helping our clients; it’s not just about enhancing their beauty but helping resolve their pain e.g. from teeth grinding treatment to Botox for headaches

If you asked me what’s most rewarding if I’m honest I started this business with my mother to help women, and men to solve medical problems delivered by trusted and qualified practitioners. 

Let’s face it, the media is pressuring us to look younger and research shows women are suffering from low self-esteem more than ever. The selfie/blogger generation isn’t going anywhere. As the beauty industry turn to plastic surgery or spending thousands a year on make-up, we believe in subtle temporary beauty enhancements to bring out your natural beauty and feel confident instantly.

Our next client was one of the most rewarding and the reasons I wake up in the mornings as her confidence was low. Meet Sharai Toner, a European PA who came to us as she was suffering from a long-term illness and felt it had aged her. As a result, it left her feeling down, defeated and confidence was at an all-time low. 

“I felt I’d aged prematurely due to a long illness”.

Sharai Toner's Story: Anti-Ageing Treatment

Before any treatment we have a consultation, my mother and I try to put ourselves in our client's shoes. In Sharai's case, it made me think, she's in the peak of her life and unlike others, she had already been through a lot and simply wants to love herself again to bring her confidence back. 

Imagine suffering from an illness with the stress and pain eating you from inside and when you’re finally on the other side you look at yourself in the mirror and the suffering continues. 

The Anti-Ageing Packaging was ideal for Sharai, as it included lip filler treatment, Botox that focused on her frown lines and dermal filler for her smile lines (lines from her nose to mouth area). These are areas which develop with age and need to be targeted early for best long lasting results.

I cannot put into words how I felt when Sharai shared how she felt after the treatment...“I did not expect the difference to be so profound and make such a massive difference to my self-confidence”. 

We wanted to make sure she was happy, so we caught up with her after her treatment and you’ll be pleased to know she now no longer feels the need to wear make-up and feels great! 

“I look young and fresher, no pain after the swelling”.

It is an honour to be able to help women and men and be that beacon of light and we hope Sharai health, happiness, and a beautiful future. 

If you're still unsure or have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us or you can always book a free consultation.

Daniel Lennon's Story: Teeth Grinding & Jawline Slimming
 

Last week we shared Layla’s story, she came to us for Botox as her headaches were affecting her daily life. Meet Sales Consultant, Daniel Lennon, who had a similar pain but it was affecting his sleep and caused by teeth grinding, also known as bruxism.

 After Treatment: Teeth Grinding & Jawline Slimming 

After Treatment: Teeth Grinding & Jawline Slimming 

As a Qualified Hygienist, I see many patients who suffer from teeth grinding and it’s more common than people think; it's estimated 50 to 95% of adults suffer from the condition.

Teeth grinding most commonly occurs whilst sleeping; it can start from headaches, sore jaw, gum recession, tooth sensitivity to loose teeth, shortening of teeth and even lead to loss of tooth structure. And long-term it can cause cracked and broken teeth and even damage to the bone structure of the jaw.

Normally your partner would be able to tell you if you grind your teeth, if not, your dentist who would be able to tell from the state of your teeth or if you wake up and suffer from headaches you would do as Daniel did book an appointment to visit your dentist. Although after visiting the dentist and trying alternative dental treatment, Daniel was still suffering and wasn’t satisfied to the point he became frustrated as nothing seemed to be working, so he decided it was time to try Botox.

Botox is not just available for aesthetic purposes but can be used as a quick, painless and non-surgical solution to stop teeth grinding. Botox works by preventing the muscle contraction, which is involved with teeth grinding/clenching.

You may be wondering if it actually works? Well, Daniel was over the moon with the result, and told us he was really glad gave Botox a try, as it not only helped with headaches but dental problems, sleep disturbance and slimed his jawline.

For those of you who may be thinking about it, you will be glad to know, Daniel added it was pain-free and he hasn’t had any issues after the treatment. He even stated he can finally wake up with no pain in his jaw after a long time of suffering.

We are always happy to hear we eliminated the pain from our clients, as that was one of the main reasons my mother and I started the business.

If you suffer from teeth grinding we hope sharing the knowledge will help you too but if you're still unsure or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us or you can always book a free consultation.

Layla Vardy's Story: Top Tips for Botox & Lip Filler
 

Meet Layla, our regular client, who was ever so kind in letting us share her Botox and lip filler experience. It was great to get her input for this blog post and we thought why not share some top tips for those of you who are not sure about going ahead with the treatments.


You may have heard of Botox and lip fillers as they are very popular in London. And our clients not only come from Luton and London but Bedford, Harpenden and Milton Keynes and prefer these non-surgical treatments as they are not permanent for beauty enhancement. Also, did you know Botox has been a godsend for people who have excessive sweating, teeth grinding and even headaches in Layla's case?

Layla came to us as she had toyed with the idea of Botox for her headaches and lip filler for quite some time... "I've always wanted to enhance the fullness and shape of my lips". In addition, she informed us her headaches were becoming all too frequent and affecting her daily life and heard Botox could be a solution. Although rather than just going to any practitioner she carried out her research to see what were the implications, if it would work for her and once she was satisfied, she researched for reliable trustworthy practices. 

Botox injections are commonly known for cosmetic purposes, yet it also plays a crucial role in treating certain medical conditions, as a result, Botox is now widely used by the medical professionals to treat chronic migraines. If you're wondering how it works, Botox acts as a muscle-paralysing injection, which has nerve-blocking effects. It's been tested for several years and is seen as a reliable, effective and safe way to treat certain medical conditions by medical practitioners, such as headaches. 

In the cosmetics industry, Botox is used as a temporary solution to treat fine lines and facial wrinkles. The effects are fully reversible within time and have a very low risk of side effects. 

Now you may be wondering, what Layla was thinking during and after the treatment and we asked her to give her honest feedback...

"I honestly feel fabulous! The treatments with Ani and Shameem at Escape Aesthetics are always quick and relatively pain-free.

No matter how nervous I feel, I am always met with friendly, welcoming faces and a warm caring atmosphere that immediately puts at ease. That matched with a professional and patient-focused clinic space, I can see why the ladies are successful aesthetics practitioners."

Oh, and if you're wondering did Botox reduce Layla's headaches?

Thanks to Layla, we've added our top tips, which will help you with your research and when deciding whether to go ahead with any treatments.

  1. Always do your research and ask yourself, 'could the treatment actually help me with my headaches?', as there's always a possibility it may not work.
  2. Find practices that seem reliable, from checking the location of their surgery, professional practises have websites and reviews on Facebook and Google. If they have less than 20 reviews, be aware it may not be accurate. 
  3. It's definitely worth checking out the practice and use a new injection.
  4. If you're not sure, book in for your face to face consultation.
  5. Most reliable practices will take their time to advise you, and tailor the treatment to your bespoke needs and they should work with you to achieve the desired final outcome. 

We hope Layla's input and our top tips help to make your decision easier.

If you're still unsure or have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us or you can always book a free consultation.

Radha's Story: How Excessive Sweating Treatment Changed Her Life
 

Hello everyone!

Firstly, a massive thank you to Radha for allowing us to share her story with you all. Radha came to see us as she was suffering from hyperhidrosis under the arms. Hyperhidrosis is known as ‘excessive sweating’ is a medical condition which can affect various areas of the body. 

 Underarm grid where injections are inserted

Many people are dealing with this condition in silence as they believe there is nothing effective which can help! You may have tried various creams, antiperspirants or treatment which takes too much effort and too long to work. Doctors are now saying the only quick and effective treatment is the muscle relaxing injections. Excessive sweating can be dealt with very quickly, safely and effectively with our muscle relaxing treatment.

You may be wondering how does the treatment work? Well, the treatment is proven safe, effective and a non-surgical option. It temporarily blocks the signals from the brain to the sweat glands that causes excessive sweating. Not sure about the effects? Not to worry. The treatment is reversible and lasts 6-12 months.

We initially saw Radha for a full consultation prior to her treatment with our insured nurse prescriber who has over 22 years’ experience with injecting.

We asked Radha how she felt before her treatment?

She said…

“I have always been conscious of my sweating and had thought about having the treatment for years. I came across Escape Aesthetics through social media. I was pretty nervous before the appointment as I anticipated it to be painful and was worried whether it would actually work.”

Radha was having the muscle relaxing treatment for under her arms, however, the treatment can be done for various areas such as the palms of the hands, feet or face.

Before the treatment the area is numbed using a strong numbing cream. For extra comfort ice or the VIBRATA can also be used. Very fine injections are inserted into the affected area in a grid pattern. The procedure is very quick and simple. It takes around 10-15mins in total and is virtually painless!

Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 20.24.35.png

We asked Radha how she felt during her treatment?

She said…

“During the treatment Aniqah and her mum made me feel very comfortable and explained the procedure which put me at ease. The treatment was surprisingly quick and painless- it felt like small pin pricks”.

After the treatment the area can be slightly red. Bruising/swelling post treatment is very rare but arnica gel is provided to help. Research shows the muscle relaxing treatment results in 82-87% decrease in sweating. Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment. The full effects usually take 2 weeks. We offer a 2 week follow-up where a top-up is administered if needed. In most cases this is not required.  

We asked Radha how she felt after her treatment?

She said…

“After the treatment I had no side effects and was able to carry on as normal! I started noticing a difference a couple days later and it was as effective as I had hoped. My sweating stopped and my confidence has grown! I no longer have to worry about sweat marks, especially when wearing coloured tops. The treatment has now lasted 5 months and no signs of it wearing off have shown yet. I will definitely be booking Escape Aesthetics again for my next treatment”.

Thank you for taking the time to read our clients experience with her hyperhidrosis treatment.

How Medical Microdermabrasion cleared Rebecca's skin
 

Hi All!

We hope you’re enjoying our client diary blog experiences- today we wanted to share Rebecca’s story on how medical microdermabrasion has cleared her skin.

 Before and after only 2 sessions of medical microdermabrasion

Before and after only 2 sessions of medical microdermabrasion

Rebecca came to us with troubled skin and decided to try our medical microdermabrasion treatment.

Many clients ask what is medical microdermabrasion and how does it work?

Well… It is the most requested non-invasive procedure. A method of mechanical exfoliation without the use of chemicals, laser or injectables. It is used for specific skin conditions such as:

  • Acne prone skin
  • fine lines, scars and wrinkles
  • Superficial age spots and hyper-pigmentation
  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Sun damaged and uneven skin tone
  • Excessive oiliness or dry skin

Medical microdermabrasion can only be carried out by medical professionals and is 3x more powerful than your standard microdermabrasion. Therefore, less sessions are needed to see results!

We asked Rebecca how she felt before her treatment.

She said…

“I’ve always had oily skin but recently had a huge flare up of spots on my face. I tried a fair few products but nothing worked. Id seen a couple of microdermabrasion’s on Instagram so thought I’d give that a try!”

Medical Microdermabrasion is great as there is no downtime and your skin may just be slightly red for a couple of days. Rebecca came to us for four sessions every 2 weeks. Each session included a 30 min appointment using our derma-genesis machine which is the best available machine on the market today. A natural home-made face mask was created specifically for Rebecca’s skin type and applied at the end of the treatment.

Rebecca noticed a massive reduction in her blemishes after the first session! She felt her skin was clearer, brighter and much smoother.

We asked Rebecca how she felt during her treatment?

she said...

“I’m so glad I went with this treatment! You and your mum have been amazing right from the beginning of my first appointment. So friendly, helpful and explained everything in detail”

Rebecca has had four sessions so far and as you can see from the picture below her skin is looking great!

Her skin is less oily, blemishes have completely reduced and there is also less redness.

We asked Rebecca how she felt after her treatment?

She said…

“I’ve now had four treatments and my skin is amazing, completely clear, bright and the oiliness has definitely improved. I would 100% recommend Escape Aesthetics and will be returning for more treatments.”

Jade's Chemical Skin Peel Experience
 

Hello lovelies!

Welcome back to our client diary experiences and thank you to Jade for allowing us to share her story :-) 

  Before & after chemical skin peels using glycolic acid

Before & after chemical skin peels using glycolic acid

Jade came to us a few months ago suffering with severe acne. After some discussion we decided to begin her treatment with 6 sessions of superficial chemical skin peels using glycolic acid and NEOSTRATA home-care products.

If you’re wondering what is a chemical skin peel?

Well…This is a process where medical grade glycolic acid is applied to the skin for 5 minutes to dissolve dead skin cells and unclog pores. This should only be carried out by medical professionals!

[Voted as #8 in the top 11 ways to get rid of blackheads by cosmopolitan magazine]

Chemical skin peels are great to help with acne, acne scarring, pigmentation, sun damage, fine lines & wrinkles, uneven skin tone and generally to give you a brighter skin complexion!

The best thing about these superficial skin peels is that there is no downtime! No days off work needed! Your skin may be a little red for a couple of days and there may be some flaking of the skin during the first week after your treatment.

We asked Jade how she felt before treatment and she said…

“I would say a mixture of nervous and excitement as this was all very new to me but I was excited to see the outcome!”
fullsizeoutput_1c26.jpeg

We started off with 30% clarifying acid (containing citric acid + mandelic acid which is great for acne prone skin) This skin booster is applied for 2 minutes before applying 20% glycolic acid for 5 minutes The percentage of glycolic acid was then increased every 2 weeks until 70% was reached.

Jade noticed her acne drying out after the first peel. The cystic acne had reduced significantly and the skin was beginning to look a lot clearer. During the treatment she was also using a glycolic acid face wash x2 day to boost her results further. 

Glycolic acid works by exfoliating layers of the skin to encourage new skin cell growth and remove dead or damaged cells. This also helps to prevent new acne breakouts!

We asked Jade how she felt during her treatment?

Jade said...

“I couldn’t be happier with the results, its everything I expected and more!” 
I'm now on my 4th skin peel, and I cannot fault anything! The ladies are so friendly and have offered me great advice. My skin feels amazing. Got plenty of sessions booked for the future.

Jade completed her 6 sessions and as you can see from the pictures below her skin was looking much better!

Less redness, reduced active acne, reduced large pores and the skin was less oily. Jade decided to book in another 3 chemical skin peels before moving on to medical microdermabrasion to help with the acne scarring.

Thank you for taking the time to read our clients experience with chemical skin peels. Are you suffering with acne or past acne scarring?

Ruhina's Lip Filler Experience
 

Hi Ladies!

This is the first of our many ‘client diary’ experiences! So of course we thought we would start off with someone who put their trust in us from the very beginning! Since her first lip filler experience Ruhina has been back to us a few times and has been extremely pleased with the results.

Screen Shot 2017-09-11 at 16.27.44.png

For those of you who are unaware, lip fillers are a non-surgical way to enhance your lips by defining the border or adding more plump to the lip body for fuller lips. We pride ourselves in providing natural treatment- enhancing your natural beauty!

We use lip filler products which are known to be the best fillers on the market. These are made up of hyaluronic acid which is what your lips already contain. The fillers have no animal/human products and they are completely reversible. One of the most common questions is how long do lip fillers last?

From our clientele experience the lip fillers we use have lasted 6-8 months- which is exactly what we want!

This lovely client decided to initially go for 0.5ml lip filler as this was her first time experiencing lip injections. If you’re wondering how much do lip fillers cost? The prices start from £125 and depend on your desired look. All treatment is tailored to your personal expectations!

We asked Ruhina how she felt before her treatment…

"The first time I considered lip fillers I was a little anxious but having spoken to Aniqah and with her reassuring me throughout the consultation I knew I was in good hands."

Many clients ask us do lip fillers hurt? Ruhina felt minimum pain during treatment and she also experienced minimum bruising & swelling post-treatment. Soon after her first experience with us Ruhina returned for another 0.5ml top up to achieve her desired look. As you can see from the picture below her lips looked absolutely stunning! Defined, plumped and still so natural.

Before & After Lip Fillers Using 0.5ml

We believe with world class fillers and the best technique your lip fillers should last you 6 months or longer! Our customer service is second to none and we want to do everything we can to help!

The Vibrata™ designed by the world famous Kardashian cosmetic surgeon is used with all of your treatment for minimum pain, bruising and generally a more comfortable experience (this definitely helps if you have a needle phobia) We also provide you with ARNICA GEL at the end of your treatment which is best known to prevent bruising. Other side effects from lip enhancement & augmentation is very rare as the product used is all completely natural.

We asked Ruhina how she felt after her treatment...

"Honestly, I have loved the outcome every time! The work speaks for itself! Couldn’t thank these ladies enough and of course I shall be returning very soon!"

Overall Ruhina summed up her experience as…

“I think its safe to say that I would not go anywhere other than Escape Aesthetics for the lip filler treatment! And I’ve already been more than once so that says it all! Both Aniqah and her mum have delivered nothing but the best service and made every one of my appointments an enjoyable, quick and pain free experience!”

Thank you for taking the time to read our first client diary entry. Stay tuned for lots more client experiences to come!

My Before & After Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Experience
 

Hi ladies and welcome to our first blog post! I wanted to give you all an insight to my personal experience with Anti-Wrinkle Treatment for my frown lines so, here it goes!

Some people ask, what is Anti-Wrinkle Treatment? Well, Anti-Wrinkle Treatment is a prescription only drug that temporarily ‘freezes’ the muscles so they are unable to contract. Usually, the contracting is what causes your wrinkles or fine lines making you look sad, angry and tired. One thing many people do not know is that the earlier you get Anti-Wrinkle Treatment, the better the result is long term.

Prevention is key!

Not many people know a lot about how Anti-Wrinkle Treatment works or its benefits nor do they know how easy it is to be free of those frown lines. Not only is it an easy method to get your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated Anti-Wrinkle Treatment is also reversible! It lasts for around 6 - 12 months with the process itself being quick and easy causing minimal pain!

Not too long ago, I ventured out and decided to do something about my own frown lines that had been getting me down. I am 23 years old and have personally always been conscious about my frown lines because it is in my genetics and I do tend to frown all the time. Without realising, I would find myself frowning whilst driving, thinking, talking, when sad or stressed. I was becoming more and more conscious of it and noticed that I was developing a faint fine line, which became even more prominent when I wore make-up. My make-up would crease at the end of the day and application was not smooth nor did I feel satisfied with its finishing. I wanted that flawless skin look but my frown lines were making it difficult. It wasn’t just about how the lines looked I was also beginning to get headaches from frowning all the time.

I knew Anti-Wrinkle Treatment around my frown line would stop me frowning, possibly making me feel better and preventing those fine lines from getting any worse!

  Now this is how deep my frown lines were before the treatment

Now this is how deep my frown lines were before the treatment

Eventually, I decided I was going to get the Anti-Wrinkle Treatment done but  I was quite nervous as I had never had it before. My fear was more to do with the pain however, the fact that it would only take a few minutes comforted me a great deal.

Before the treatment, the area was cleaned, make-up was removed and markings were drawn indicating where the injection would go. The fine needle was injected into five injection sites.  

How did that feel? Honestly, I felt the initial injection which felt like a sharp scratch but it was over in literally 2-3minutes! I was surprised at how quick the treatment was. There was hardly any bleeding and it only felt a little sore which also disappeared after 10-15minutes. What felt amazing was the fact I could feel the stiffness around my frown line already. An absolutely brilliant result! 

After the treatment, a tissue was used to dab the area. You could not tell I just had the treatment done; I was able to go into town straight after with no worries! For the rest of the day I was advised to exercise the muscles, wear no make-up, avoid touching the area and sit up right. I could feel the stiffness of the muscles and it really felt like it was working.

Two days after treatment, I could not frown as much as before and the dynamic lines were reducing dramatically which you can see below. I genuinely felt like my make-up application was a whole lot smoother and my complexion looked so much better already. My close friends and family could notice there was a difference and complimented on how natural and flawless my skin looked.

  My frown line change two days after treatment

My frown line change two days after treatment

One week after treatment: my frown line had completely gone and I could no longer frown which felt amazing. When I could feel myself frowning I would look in the mirror and realise I actually wasn’t. This was because I was unable to, resulting in no fine lines/wrinkles! This was exactly what I wanted; to prevent my fine lines from getting any worse, stop my headaches and stop looking sad, angry and stressed all the time.

  After week 1: No frown lines 1 week after treatment

After week 1: No frown lines 1 week after treatment

It’s so important that we feel confident in our own skin! Wrinkles and lines, well, they’re things that can really have a negative impact on our self-esteem but there is a way to fix that.

I would 100% recommend this treatment as a preventative for someone who is worried about their fine lines getting worse, or someone wanting a flawless complexion- Giving you that smooth make-up application and youthful appearance. It was honestly the best thing I have had done!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my personal Anti-Wrinkle Treatment experience. Stay tuned for our future posts, we’ve got great things in store for you.
