The Great Grazia Treatment Guide 2022: The Ultimate Guide to Facial Treatments


February 2022

Award winning journalist, Lotte Jeffs, and Cassie Steer created an expert approved guide to the world of aesthetic treatments. The interest in cosmetic procedures has increased. Whilst Zoom may be the main answer for this, it’s not the only reason for why we are so busy booking treatments. Lotte Jeffs illustrates that her need is driven “by a commitment to self-care.” Wading through the overwhelming and at times complicated information about treatments, Lotte and Cassie break down where to start, who to trust and what treatments work and reach out to our expert Dr Johanna Ward on lifts.

Lip filler

Lip fillers are a popular treatment for both men and women. The once in demand trout pout has moved aside to make way for the more natural plump look. Choosing a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler like Juvederm, and an experience practitioner whose method is “a little goes a long way”, will serve your lips well.

What is the pain factor for Lip Filler treatment?

For a non-surgical lip lift, filler contains anaesthetic, so the pain factor remains at a 4/10.

How long do the results last?

A non-surgical lip lift “typically last up to a year.”

Jawline tweakments

There are multiple ways in which jowls and double chins can be treated. To create a sharper silhouette, many practitioners use fillers, Botox or microneedling radiofrequency devices like Morpheus8 or Profound.

These non-invasive treatments are very appealing as there is minimal downtime required and the results speak for themselves. At most, depending on the treatment done there may be swelling or redness, but this subsides after a few days.

Eye tweakments

You always hear that someone is so tired, so it’s not much of a surprise that aesthetic doctors “have seen a huge surge in requests for eye rejuvenation.”

To treat those pesky tear troughs that make us look tired all the time, Teoxane Redensity 2 dermal filler is a great treatment. It “contains hyaluronic acid and a bespoke mineral complex to volumise tear-trough hollows (sunken creases under the eyes) while repairing the quality of the under-eye skin.”

“Though not designed as a pigmentation treatment”, dermal filler will help to brighten the eye area to combat the tired look.

Pain factor: When it comes to tear trough filler, at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, our fillers contain anaesthetic to alleviate any sensations during the treatment. If our patients are worried about the pain, we offer to apply numbing cream to help.

Brow tweakments

“As the erogenous zone of Gen Z, it was only a matter of time before brows entered the aesthetic arena. But whilst Instagram discover pages are littered with the rather more extreme ‘Fox Eye’ look, there are many treatments that focus simply on a ‘well rested’ result.”

Using a combination of treatments that include Ultherapy, laser treatments, “micro-injections of Botox and hyaluronic acid filler for sagging.” There are also treatments that combines thread lifts with dermal filler.

Acne scars

“Like ghosts of pimples past, acne scars are reminders of the blemishes we were keen to see the back of at the time. All the more galling is that they are often harder to get rid of than the acne itself and show up under multiple guises, which is why a range of treatments promising solutions has emerged” including microneedling.

Nose tweakments

“‘Tinkerbell tips’ may be trending on Instagram but the reality – liquid rhinoplasty or non-surgical nose job – is not a procedure that should be taken lightly and choosing the right practitioner is paramount.”

The ‘liquid nose job’ is “the most requested, and safest option”. It follows the methodology of injecting a small amount of hyaluronic acid-based filler rather than doing too much.

“It’s also worth nothing

When it comes to a liquid nose job, it is “worth noting that there are certain things that can’t be achieved with dermal fillers and the best candidates are those looking to ‘address a bump or a droopy tip’.”

Getting a Lift at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic

Known as the gold standard treatment, Ultherapy is loved for its tightening and lifting abilities and it’s done without needles.

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy uses “micro-focused ultrasound technology (which sends ultrasound waves deep into the skin) to create a thermal effect under the skin in order to kick-start the body’s repair process and boost collagen production for a lift.”

Dr Johanna Ward says, “flicking the switch back on to collagen production is a game-changer.”

How do you create a refreshed yet lifted look?

To create the ultimate lifted look, Dr Johanna Ward reveals that you can combine “skin tightening and lifting treatments like Ultherapy with dermal fillers to underpin the structure of the face.” This “is the key to a subtle refresh.”

Where can I get Ultherapy?

Ultherapy treatment is available at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic. It is the number one Ultherapy Premier treatment provider for the UK and Ireland – so why would you go anywhere else?

How much does Ultherapy hurt?

With Ultherapy treatment, there can be mild discomfort. It has been rated a 4/10 for the pain “(think tiny elastic bands being snapped against your skin).”

How long do the results last?

Results for Ultherapy can last for a year to 18 months!

How much does it Ultherapy cost?

Ultherapy treatment starts at £500.
