HOW TO LOOK TEN YEARS YOUNGER WITH DR SHIRIN LAKHANI

The ageing process is of course inevitable but there are several steps you can take to slow it down and continue to look your best. Surprisingly too, it’s not all about Botox. There is a plethora of treatments available, many of which focus on definitive parts of the face and body, so you can focus on the areas that you want to enhance and importantly, those that are giving away your age.

Dr Shirin Lakhani, one of the leading aesthetic doctors in the UK and owner of Elite Aesthetics in Kent has revealed her top tips on how to pause the clock and see if there was a way to truly rewind time

‘The great thing about aesthetic treatments is that they enhance your natural beauty; they make you look younger and less tired, without taking away what makes you, you,’ says Dr Lakhani. ‘There are now more treatments than ever available for patients, whether it’s a radiofrequency skin-tightening treatment such as the BTL Exilis or a non-surgical blepharoplasty to remove excess skin and lift the eyes without the downtime that comes with surgery.

INJECTABLES

When it comes down to injectables, the focus now is to refresh rather than over inflate, using strategic placement of product to create a natural, well-rested look.

Ultimately Dr Lakhani explains that there can be no ‘one size fits all’ approach and a holistic, personalised anti-ageing strategy is required to truly have a benefit.

‘Most women take care of their faces,’ says Dr Lakhani. ‘But so many more elements can have an impact. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can have a huge impact on a patient’s overall wellbeing and appearance while an intimate rejuvenation treatment can be the key to unlocking a patient’s confidence in their relationship and in turn, their confidence and self-esteem.

‘There is a direct correlation between these results and a patient’s appearance.

SKINCARE

To have maximum benefit when it comes to anti-ageing, Dr Lakhani recommends that aesthetics treatments are incorporated into a lifestyle which has both health and wellbeing placed firmly in the foreground.

‘When my patients visit me concerned about ageing, one of the first things that I discuss in-depth with them is their skin quality.

Dr Shirin recommends a number of things to make sure that the skin is well looked after and that ageing is kept at bay.

When makeup is removed, the skin becomes a ‘clean canvas ready to absorb product’ explains Dr Lakhani. ‘After a long day, your skin desperately wants to rid itself of pore-clogging debris and pollution.’

SUN PROTECTION

There is also no such thing as a safe tan either, according to Dr Lakhani. ‘When cells are exposed to UV light, more melanin is produced. This is the pigment that colours your skin, which is why you tan.

‘The production of melanin is a sign that damage has already been done and your skin has been injured by UV exposure.

‘If you like to spend a lot of time in the sun, make sure that you apply sunscreen every two hours and again after returning from the pool. 90 percent of skin damage is caused by UV exposure and the best way to avoid this is to apply a good sunscreen.’

HYDRATION

Shockingly, Dr Lakhani recommends surrendering your trusty moisturiser, too.

‘Although our moisturisers may appear to provide instant softening and plumping, what most of them are actually doing is sitting on the surface of the skin acting as a barrier. Instead of providing deep hydration our creams are suffocating the skin and causing it to switch off its natural moisture production.

‘Natural hydration ultimately has to come from within the body and cannotin fact be reversed by applying moisturiser on the skin’s surface. What most people really need is a good exfoliator, retinol, a healthy diet rich in fruit, vegetables and nuts and plenty of water.

‘This, alongside a personalised treatment plan can have a distinct impact when it comes to helping a patient to look younger for longer.’

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!

Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.

Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.

A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
