Continuing the R’s


In January we began our year by exploring the 6 R’s of cosmetic treatment and what they mean.

To remind you, the 6 Rs are:

  • Reinvigorate
  • Renew
  • Reinvent
  • Refresh
  • Reinforce
  • Rejuvenate

In January we talked about the first in the list. Reinvigorate. This month we are going to look at what treatments we offer that will help ‘RENEW’ you.


It’s a funny word and has two meanings, both pertinent in terms of cosmetic procedures.

Oxford English Dictionary:

  1. Resume an activity after an interruption (similar: resume, comeback to).
  2. Extend the period of validity (similar: extend, prolong).

Taking the first definition, many of us reach an age where we are no longer comfortable with how we are aging, how we are presenting to the world. We may have just taken it for granted that our appearance, so consistent over our younger years, would never present as it is today. So, our preventative treatments may have lapsed, may have been sporadic or even non-existent.  Taking the Oxford English Dictionary’s definition of similar meanings, as ‘come back to’, this is a good way to consider some of the treatments that will return you to a place where you look less tired, less sad, less wrinkled and so on. And, as we are looking at the word RENEW, we can also highlight treatments that will not only allow you to come back, but also to prolong that return.

Let’s look at some of the treatments that will help you achieve this.

The 8 point lift

Banish the tired and sad looking face with this tried and tested facial enhancement treatment. This treatment has moved beyond wrinkle treatment to subtly reshaping and redefining your face. By using dermal fillers, injected in certain points of the face, we are able to renew that youthful alertness by repositioning facial fat.

Losing Lip Definition?

As you age, your lips lose volume and that more pronounced shape of youth. At Somerset Cosmetic Clinic, our emphasis is always on the ‘NATURAL’ so you will always get well defined, but not overfilled lips!

The most popular non-surgical treatment

Botox is a safe, non-surgical treatment which softens facial lines and wrinkles to create a more youthful appearance. It is a prescription drug and should only be administered by individuals with the appropriate training and qualifications.

By blocking communications between the nerve and the muscle, it temporarily softens facial lines. The effects are seen after three days and last an average 3-4 months.

Last but far from least

Jump start your own body’s renewal process!

Profhilo is a series of injections in the face, in strategic locations, which are the first to show signs of ageing. It is not a dermal filler but offers fantastic hydration and triggers collagen and elastin production, things that all slow down as we age.

The result is a better quality and more elastic dermis, which fills and volumizes naturally.

For someone looking for a subtle renewal – Profhilo certainly achieves that.

Once again, these are just a few of the treatments that we can offer to help RENEW you in 2022.

If you would like to explore any of these, please contact me (Dr Ed), and I will be pleased to discuss your options.
