Face

How our face ages

Our faces age in 2 ways. We age naturally as we get older with loss of volume affecting bone, fat, collagen and muscle. Gravity plays a part also and our tissues move “south”. This type of natural ageing is hereditary to some extent and so we can thank our ancestors if we age well. The commonest cause of ageing comes from external factors such as smoking, alcohol and in particular UV light. It doesn’t matter whether the UV light is natural from the sun or from a sunbed.

There is no such thing as a safe sun tan unless it is artificial. Our biggest beauty tip at Stepback is wear a factor 30 plus sun block (preferably water resistant) and reapply it every 2-3 hours and … wear it winter and summer. Add a hat with a wide brim and some large sunglasses. We see young women in their 20s in our clinic who have the skin of a 35 year old. We have also diagnosed malignant skin tumours in some.

Face Treatment Kent

Treatments for the upper face: Wrinkles, frown lines, fallen eyebrows, wasting of the temples, crows feet and the area between the eyebrows (known as the Glabella) can all be treated with a choice of Botulinum Toxin (Botox/Azzalure/Dysport) or Dermal Fillers or, very often, with a combination of both. Using these methods we can lift the eyebrows and reduce the heaviness of the eyelids giving a less tired, more alert appearance. Volume loss, particularly at the temples can be replaced by fillers as can the volume loss beneath the eyes (eye troughs). The skin surface can be refined using Skin Boosting/Hydration Injections and Dermaroller.

Treatments for the middle face: One of the commonest causes of ageing is thinning or loss of volume of the middle face along with a downwards movement of the tissues. Dermal Fillers such as Radiesse, Restylane or Teosyal products can enhance the cheek bones giving an instant lift without the need for surgery. Similarly nose to mouth (nasolabial) lines can be lifted from above or filled. The overall hydration can be replenished using Skin Boosters such as Vital or Mesotherapy. Dermaroller is also fabulous for overall skin appearance. Lines radiating out from the nose known as “bunny lines” are treated with Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Bocouture, Azzalure).

Treatments for the lower face: Lips can be enhanced with fillers to give a more defined outline or increased volume. Smokers lines can be treated with fine fillers with or without Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Bocouture, Azzalure). The lines between the mouth and the chin (the marionette lines) can also be filled. A large proportion of people grind their teeth which can lead to more pronounced chewing muscles giving a hamster effect. This can also happen naturally in people of Asian and other Oriental races. It is possible to reduce the size of these muscles using Botulinum Toxin. Volume loss giving the appearance of jowls can be replaced by fillers. The overall hydration can be replenished using skin boosters such as Vital and the overall skin appearance with dermaroller.

The Stepback Face Lift

We are very pleased to be able to offer a wonderful non - surgical facelift which we have developed ourselves. With this we can disguise eye bags and put back the volume lost as one gets older. We can make lips more luscious (without the trout pout!) and open eyes. It takes between one and two hours to do and is long-lasting. Please phone 0870 161 0680 for further details. The face lift starts at £650 and many of our clients say that it has saved them having a surgical facelift.

  • Forehead Lines
  • Eyebrows
  • Frown Lines (between the eyes)
  • Crows Feet and Under Eye Wrinkles
  • Hooded Upper Eyelids

These can all be treated at the mild or moderate stages with Botulinum Toxin, Fillers in some cases and Mesotherapy.

  • Temple Wasting
  • Eye Bags and Tear Troughs

These can be disguised with fillers.

Nose

Non surgical nose shaping

We are delighted to be able to offer non surgical nose shaping. This may be done to straighten a moderate bump or to disguise flaring nostrils or a down turning nose tip. We use both Botulinum Toxin (Azzalure, Bocouture or Botox) and fillers to get the desired effect.

Hands

Thinning of the skin and prominence of blood vessels may be disguised by using fillers and in particular Radiesse. Skin condition may also be improved using skin boosters. Age spots may respond to IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or prescription only medication.

Medical Skin Conditions

Treatments - Medical Skin Conditions including Acne and Acne scarring

Both Dr. Davies and Dr. McKeever, as fully qualified GPs, have had very many years experience of skin disorders. At the Stepback clinic we are used to seeing patients with a variety of problems such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis and eczema to name a few.

Because of their double training in General Practice and Cosmetic Medicine the Doctors are able to prescribe standard medications as well as provide a variety of other solutions such as skin peels, IPL, Lustre, Dermal Fillers and Medical Skincare/Cosmeceuticals where appropriate.

Acne treatment using Lustre Pure Light

Dr Chris Steele talks to Phil and Holly on This Morning, about the benefits of Lustre Pure Light for the treatment of acne – 12.06.12.

Lustre Pure Light is a brand new acne treatment that combines safe, clinically proven blue light technology in a unique ‘hands-free’ wearable device that delivers optimum dosage, allowing sufferers to build their treatment into their daily routine.

Minor Operations

Cosmetic Operations Kent

Both Dr Christopher Davies and Dr Geraldine McKeever have performed minor skin operations for many years in their roles as GPs who need to be specially approved to perform such procedures. In recent years the NHS has decided not to offer treatment for skin problems which are deemed to be purely cosmetic.

We at Stepback recognise that unsightly cosmetic skin problems can, nonetheless, be very distressing for the individual. We are able to remove lumps, bumps, moles, skin tags etc. using a variety of methods.

All our minor operation procedures are carried out in state of the art, NHS approved, facilities.

Neck And Decolletage

Nefertiti Lift

Small bands of tissue between the skin of the neck and the underlying muscle are often referred to as platysmal bands. These can lead to the appearance of “turkey neck”. It is possible to improve the appearance of the bands by injecting small amounts of Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Azzalure) along them. The neck skin can also be improved by skin boosters such as Vital light, Mesotherapy or Dermaroller.

More information can be found in our blog post Saggy Necks and Jaws : The Nefertiti lift.

Ever wanted a neck like Queen Nefertiti?

Stepback is pleased to introduce the Nefertiti neck lift. For further info see blog or phone the clinic on 0870 161 0680.

Semi Permanent Make Up

Mrs Sarah Jagger is our semi-permanent make up expert. Sarah is a celebrity, Red Carpet make up artist. She is a well known beauty editor and is the beauty presenter on ITV’s “This Morning” TV programme. Sarah is widely recognised as one of the UK’s best Semi-Permanent make-up artists and beauty writer.

Eyeliner: a fine line can be applied to add depth and definition to eyes. This also gives the impression of thicker lashes with enhanced colour.

Eyebrows: For eye brows which are sparse from plucking, naturally thin or light, semi-permanent make up can add depth and definition.

Lip Colour: Lip liner and full lip colour can reshape lips and increase fullness. It can prevent lipstick from bleeding. You can choose a colour, either subtle or dramatic, to suit your lifestyle.

Medical Problems: The Stepback Clinic uses semi-permanent make up to mask blemishes and discolourations of the skin, to hide scars and to replace pigment loss in conditions such as vitiligo.

Migraine and Chronic Tension Headaches

Migraine headaches are caused by a narrowing followed by a dilation of the arteries of the scalp and brain, usually on one side. The sufferer may also be affected by visual or other neurological disturbances along with nausea or vomiting and intolerance of light. Whilst migraine can be treated with medication, Botulinum Toxin can often provide a safe and economical alternative.

Muscle Tension Headaches occur when the muscles on the back of the neck and head go into spasm (a bit like a cramp in the leg!). These headaches are extremely painful and often don’t respond to painkillers or anti-inflammatory medicines. Sometimes the sufferer will feel pain all over the neck and head or just in a certain area such as the temples or the back of the head. Often the pain is wrongly described as migraine. These headaches may last for days or even weeks at a time. Small injections of Botulinum Toxin carefully placed to relax the offending muscles, are used with great effect to relieve the pain usually for many months at a time.

Several studies have been done on the treatment of headaches with Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Azzalure). The Stepback clinic has been treating both types of headache for several years now with quite often remarkable results.

Skin Complexion And Sun Damage

Here at Stepback “Complexion Perfection” is extremely important to us. We believe that if we are to rejuvenate the face or décolleté we should not neglect the appearance of the skin.

Skin Complexion

Sometimes we can suffer from skin which either gives our age away, reflects our way of life or perhaps indicates a chronic illness. It seems at times that no amount of filler or botox improves the skin’s general appearance. At Stepback we like to give you a younger complexion. This can be done by any combination of the following:

  • Vital
  • Dermaroller
  • Skin Peels
  • Mesotherapy
  • IPL
  • Cosmeceuticals

Sun Damage

The main signs of sun damage are skin thinning, hyperpigmentation (age spots) and wrinkling on exposed areas of skin most commonly the face, neck/décolletage, hands, arms and legs. IPL and skin peels are often used in these cases along with Skin Boosting/Hydration Injections (Vital) on certain areas. We also on occasions recommend Retinoid containing products and other Medical Skincare/Cosmeceuticals.

Underarm Sweating

Some people are unlucky enough to suffer from excessive sweating, most commonly in the underarm area or sometimes on the face. It is possible to inject the sweaty areas with multiple small injection of botox which will dramatically reduce or stop the sweating for several months or longer.

How botox works for sweating

Small doses of botox are injected into the skin blocking the actions of the nerve endings that supply the sweat glands thus preventing the production of sweat. Botulinum Toxin can be used to stop sweating on the forehead, upper lip, underarms, palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. Results usually last 4-9 months.

What the Celebrities say

Dr Christopher Davies and Dr. Geraldine M Keever have been described as “Kent’s King and Queen of faces”.

Sarah Jagger, Daybreak TV beauty presenter and red carpet makeup artist has said of Dr. McKeever: “I have seen Geraldine’s work and I’m amazed at how she can create a fuller cheekbone, a higher brow, a sharper jawline all with the use of Botulinum Toxin and Fillers and without leaving patients looking like they’ve had “something done”. I would say to anyone thinking of having a facelift to rethink and to go to Geraldine instead”
