The DiamondGlow SkinMedica serums and what skin conditions they treat

DiamondGlow is the hugely popular hydrafacial available at Dermoperfection’s medical skin and cosmetic clinic – in fact, we’re the only clinic in Birmingham to offer DiamondGlow!

Also known as an Envy facial, DiamondGlow is a revolutionary 3in1 face and body resurfacing treatment that uses a real diamond tip to extract impurities, exfoliate the skin and infuse the skin with SkinMedica condition specific serums.

As well as leaving you with a long-lasting glow, DiamondGlow is the solution to multiple skin concerns. Take a look at what each serum treats:

  • SkinMedica TNS Advanced+ – targets coarse fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, and enhances skin tone and texture.
  • SkinMedica HA5 Hyaluronic Acid – this uses 5 forms of HA to instantly hydrate and plump the skin, whilst also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • SkinMedica Even & Correct Advanced Brightening – this features their exclusive LTN Complex along with exfoliating glycolic and phytic acid to reduce hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
  • SkinMedica Vitamin C – this provides a deep dose of antioxidants to rejuvenate and protect.
  • SkinMedica Pore Clarifying – this addresses imperfections and promotes clearer skin. This is ideal for acne-prone skin!

We love how DiamondGlow is fully customisable, and our patients do too! Lila said: “I enjoyed my first Envy facial immensely with the lovely Stuart. The results after only one treatment were amazing. My skin felt squeaky clean & definitely had a nice glow to it!”

Revitalising results from DiamondGlow can be seen after just one treatment, but we recommend a course of treatments to enhance and maintain the hydrafacial effects.

BBL vs IPL: what’s the difference?

Both BBL (BroadBand Light) and IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments have become hugely popular over the past few years – but what’s the difference?

IPL heats the upper layers of the skin to help improve skin texture and tone, including for hyperpigmentation and acne. 

BBL is similar, however we believe it is the more powerful sister of IPL – and we are proud to therefore have BBL services available to patients with The Laser Fix, in collaboration with Dermoperfection, Birmingham’s leading medical skin and cosmetic clinic.

Both BBL and IPL are non-invasive, providing effective results on the face, neck, shoulders, chest and hands, with effects visible for up to a year!

However, BBL reaches further down into the skin compared to IPL, stimulating collagen production and skin repair, as well as enhancing effectiveness when treating your concerns in the long-term.

BBL is also even more customisable than IPL, combining perfectly with other Sciton laser treatments, including the amazing Moxi facial. The Laser Fix are Birmingham’s exclusive specialists in this ultimate rejuvenation combination. 

Plus, BBL is able to treat even more concerns than IPL; on top of treating sun damage, scarring, redness and rosacea, similarly to IPL, BBL also tackles unwanted freckles, birthmarks, sagging skin, fine lines, visible blood cells, spider veins and more, whilst evening out skin tone too.

BBL has even become a firm favourite with celebrities – Kim Kardashian said: “I just really love the results!” and that “it didn’t hurt at all.”

So, if you want to revitalise your skin inside and out, book your consultation to try BBL with The Laser Fix, in partnership with Dermoperfection.

FAQs about dermal fillers

So you know you might like to get fillers, and you’ve chosen to visit Dermoperfection’s leading Birmingham medical skin and cosmetic clinic to ensure you will be in safe hands. But we know you may have more questions, so here are some answers to the most common queries!

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables, which are made from the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, most commonly used to fill lines and wrinkles, and add volume to areas such as the lips and cheeks. We use reputable filler brands Belotero and Juvéderm. 

Where can they be used?

Fillers can be used to sculpt or fill the cheeks, lips, chin, jawline, tear troughs, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, smoker’s lines, nose and more.

Can I have fillers in more than one area at once?

Yes! Many patients opt for several treatments at the same time. 

How long does it take?

This depends on your individual treatment plan, however it usually lasts between 30 minutes and an hour. 

Does it hurt?

Many patients find fillers more comfortable than expected, and our fillers contain lidocaine, an anaesthetic to minimise discomfort. Dermoperfection’s expert clinicians are very skilled, so you should only feel a slight sting during treatment.

How quickly will I see results?

Results are visible immediately after the procedure! There may be some redness or swelling around the injection points, however this subsides quickly.

How long do fillers last?

Dermal fillers are non-permanent, and results are usually visible for 6-18 months. You can discuss when to book top-ups when you visit our clinic for your appointment.

Do fillers stimulate collagen production?

Yes, several studies have suggested that fillers induce the formation of collagen, resulting in skin that looks fresher and younger for longer!

Are fillers safe?

Fillers are very safe when administered by an experienced and medically qualified practitioner. We only used our two FDA-approved filler brands, Juvéderm and Belotero, and our team of professionals have years of experience and training, so we can minimise side effects and create natural results.

What can I expect after the treatment?

Swelling and redness should go down after one or two days. Some patients may also experience raised or inflamed skin and itchiness in this time. You will also need to pause exercise for 24 hours after the procedure, however you can eat and carry on other normal activities. 

What’s the difference between fillers and anti-wrinkle injections?

Both of these are injectables, but anti-wrinkle injections relaxes muscle movement whereas fillers simply plump out and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. To discuss both of these treatments, you can book a complimentary consultation with us.  

We have many fabulous reviews about our fillers – James said: I’ve been having fillers with Stuart for many years. He is very professional and delivers a second-to-none quality service. I would highly recommend Stuart & his team.”

These are just a few of our most frequently asked questions about fillers, but as with any treatment, we are always here to answer any more queries. So if you’re ready to start your filler journey with Dermoperfection at The Mailbox, book with us today!

Dermoperfection’s top skincare advice for your 30s

There’s plenty online about millennial treatment must-haves and the ultimate skincare in your 30s, so sometimes it’s difficult to know what’s actually best.

As you enter your 30s, you may start to notice facial ageing, although this varies from person to person. Some of these signs include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Hollowing or loss of volume
  • Dark circles and under-eye bags
  • Dull complexion
  • Sun spots and hyperpigmentation

And this is where the experts at Dermoperfection’s Birmingham medical skin and cosmetic clinic can help! We recommend:

Adopt a consistent skincare regimen

Instead of hopping on every skincare fad as it comes along, invest in the best with the medical grade skincare at Dermoperfection, with leading brands Obagi, PCA Skin, Cyspera and Mesoestetic available in-clinic.

We suggest Vitamin C based products, such as the Obagi Professional-C range to improve brightness and boost collagen production (to keep you looking youthful). Another essential for maintaining young skin is retinols, the buzzing anti-ageing ingredient at the moment that helps surface skin turnover.

We also have all your usual must-haves, from cleansers to toners and everything in between!

Protect your skin against the sun

SPFs aren’t just for holidays – we recommend using sun protection every day, as it very importantly reduces the risk of skin cancer, alongside preserving collagen, preventing premature ageing and reducing pigmentation issues.

There’s never a better time to start adding SPFs into your daily routine, but it’s especially important if it wasn’t your focus during your teens and 20s. Our skincare experts will guide you on your sun protection essentials from Obagi and PCA Skin. 

Think forward with your treatments

The 30s is the key decade to both reduce the first signs of ageing and prevent any further fine lines and wrinkles you will see beyond this time. Dermoperfection are Birmingham’s anti-ageing specialists, with a range of injectables and other non-invasive options for preserving youthfulness.

This includes Profhilo, the “injectable moisturiser” that also offers a subtle approach to anti-ageing, dermal fillers from Juvederm and Belotero to fill fine lines and redefine your cheeks and jawline, and anti-wrinkle injections, the top anti-ageing cosmetic treatment available.

Don’t forget about body confidence

It’s normal to experience changes in your body in your 30s, especially after pregnancy, but we have a huge range of body treatments to help you feel fabulous all over. This includes EMSCULPT, the muscle building and fat burning treatment that gives results equivalent to 20,000 sit-ups per session, and ULTRAcel Q+, which uses HIFU to reduce stubborn fat deposits permanently.

Tackle ongoing concerns such as acne

If you haven’t seen the back of acne and scarring in your 30s, we have the most effective long-term solutions, such as INTRAcel Pro, PCA Skin peels and Mesoestetic Microneedling. These can then be complemented with skincare products from our unbeatable range.

We pride ourselves on creating the “best version of you” with our world class treatments; Tom said: This place never disappoints. You can trust the staff here. They will only recommend treatment if you need one. Results are always amazing.”

Book your complimentary consultation with our Birmingham team today and let’s make your 30s your most skin and body confident time yet!

Top 5 aesthetic treatments and skin products for May 2023

Each month, Dermoperfection will be rounding up our top 5 aesthetic treatments and skin products available at our medical skin and cosmetic clinic!

These may be the trending treatments at the moment, the essentials for the season, the exclusive deals only available at our skin clinic and so much more!

Here’s our May treatment picks just for you:

DiamondGlow

May is the month of the Bank Holidays, and if you want instantaneous results for glowing skin, try DiamondGlow, the amazing hydrafacial exclusively available at Dermoperfection in Birmingham!

DiamondGlow (also known as the Envy facial) uses a real diamond tip to extract, exfoliate and infuse the skin – you will see the dirt, debris and impurities that have been removed in your very own waste jar! You will then see revitalised skin for up to 2 months, at which point you can book up further treatments to maintain optimal effects.

EMSELLA

As summer approaches, our schedules start getting busier – and there’s nothing worse than feeling like incontinence will spoil your plans. However, with our brand new EMSELLA chair, you can say no to incontinence and yes to full intimate confidence.

This treatment is designed for both women AND men – and if you want a preview of the effects, you can book a complimentary 10 minute taster here at Dermoperfection. 

Anti-wrinkle injections

Another important thing to consider is getting optimal anti-ageing results before holidays and special events. Anti-wrinkle injections typically take 2-3 weeks to reduce fine lines and wrinkles fully, so book in advance of your big occasions this May and beyond with Dermoperfection’s expert clinicians.

These amazing effects then last for up to 4 months – you can then safely book up your top-ups at our clinic. We only use the most well known anti-wrinkle injectable brands, btw!

Microneedling

25th May is International Skin Pigmentation Day, and we are pigmentation treatment specialists here in Birmingham! An in-demand treatment for this at our clinic is Mesoestetic Microneedling – this involves tiny, sterile needles puncturing the skin to create microchannels to allow active ingredients into the skin.

We can then use the Mesoestetic depigmentation solution, which inhibits the production of melanin, reducing hyperpigmentation whilst also brightening the skin!

Sun protection

As well as aesthetic treatments, Dermoperfection also carries the best medical skincare brands on the market, Obagi and PCA Skin. And as 1st-7th May is Sun Awareness Week, we wanted to highlight their sun protection products. 

These help effectively protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays all year round, which lessens the risk of skin cancer, and also prevents photoageing, sun spots, sunburn and more.

There’s no better place to go than Dermoperfection for these leading treatments and skincare, and our reviews prove this! Astrid said: I travel overseas to this clinic because I find it provides excellent skincare advice, treatments which produce fantastic results. This is an amazing one-stop shop for all your skincare concerns and treatments.”

So if you want to feel your very best in your own skin this May, book your consultation today at Dermoperfection – find us in The Mailbox, Birmingham!
