Save Face Investigation Highlights Why Consultations Are Essential

Posted by Dr Ash Dutta on 11 January 2016

A recent investigation by The Times has uncovered a worrying trend for Botox patients. Regulations introduced a few years ago made it a requirement that anyone issuing prescriptions for Botox can only do so after seeing the patient in person. Botox, (or Botulinum Toxin to give it its’ official name) is actually a poisonous neurotoxin. But don’t read this and panic, many of the substances we take day to day are also toxins, think caffeine, nicotine and... Read more

Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Throughout The Ages - To The 21st Century

Posted by Aesthetic Beauty Team on 11 December 2015

Many people mistakenly believe that 'plastic surgery' takes its name from the use of silicone and other artificial materials to achieve cosmetic improvements.

A Brief History of Butts (and how to get a more shapely one)

Posted by Dr Ash Dutta on 17 November 2015

Rounder and more voluptuous buttocks have been celebrated as a symbol of womanly beauty and fertility since time immemorial. The Greeks and Romans depicted voluptuous bottoms in their art, Rubens loved to paint them, Victorian women wore bustles to accentuate theirs, Sir Mix-a-Lot wrote a song about them, and Kim Kardashian broke the internet with hers.  But it wasn’t until the 1990s, when Jennifer Lopez sashayed into the cultural mainstream, that a gl...

How to look years younger without going under the knife

Posted by Aesthetic Beauty Team on 17 November 2015

The ever so glamorous Bette Davis famously said ‘getting older is not for sissies’. Clearly this wasn't a woman in need of much cosmetic assistance but none of us is immune to the effects of getting older.

Kim Phúc became a tragic symbol of the Vietnam war when, in June 1972, she was photographed as she ran naked, screaming, and terribly burned from a napalm strike on her village in the south of the country. The photograph, taken by AP photojournalist Nick Ut, would later win the Pulitzer Prize and be regarded as one of the most haunting images to emerge from the con... Read more

Living With A Secret Soul

Posted by on 7 July 2015

I wouldn’t class myself as a Vanity Fair reader but I couldn't wait to go out and buy the July issue, which looked at the challenging subject of gender reassignment surgery, something relevant to us here at the Aesthetic Beauty Centre. Transgender has always been a touchy subject, with most people unsure how to even have a conversation about it let alone live with the issue. Caitlyn Jenner appeared on July's front cover of Vanity Fair, in my opinion look... Read more
