ASIANS AGE BETTER THAN CAUCASIANS Asian races tend to age better than Caucasian races for a few reasons. Firstly their skin is darker and therefore is better protected from sun damage. Secondly they have thicker skin, and lastly they have a wider face shape. This increases their facial volume and means that they suffer less from the facial shape changes
WHAT IS MELASMA Melasma is a pigment problem on the face. It causes patches of dark pigmentation often on the forehead, nose, cheeks and top lip. These patches often look like a blotchy uneven coffee or tea coloured stain and may vary from very pale to quite dark. Melasma almost universally only affects females. Melasma is more common in darker
Does your cheek appear to blend into your neck without a jawline to define it? Do you hate the double chin or the pouch of fat under your neck? Do you dislike the way you look from the side or always take a selfie from above your head whilst you are looking up to get a good angle? If any
One of the major areas of volume loss in the face as we age is the lateral cheek – the part at the angle of the jaw and just in front of the ear. We sometimes lose a lot of volume here – from the fat in the cheek and also from the jawbone. This volume loss actually causes a
Dermal fillers can be used to treat a lot of problems, and nowadays it is fashionable to use them largely for shape and volume in areas like the cheeks. But they can also be used to treat individual fine lines. Cosmetic Practitioners call this “chasing the line”, because we follow along the line treating it in a series of tiny
Almost daily I get asked “Are there any new treatments available for Chin Fat Removal?” Being an honest bloke, I generally answer. “No. Not particularly”. But now there is! If you find yourself looking up to take a selfie because of your chin fat or feel there is just too much volume under your chin, this is the treatment you
Many of you would have seen the piece that aired on ACA last night about a new treatment for “Chin Fat”. For those of you that have not it is archived here This is a “new” treatment called Kybella. Kybella is an injectable treatment that contains the active ingredient deoxycholic acid, the body’s natural fat metabolising enzyme. What many do
We have discussed briefly the importance of volume in the face, and how the face loses volume with age. One area that usually gets overlooked on the face is the temples. Many people, as they get older, loose volume from the temples. The temples should be flat or slightly convex (curved outwards) as in any child’s or young person’s face.
Bruising is a relatively common side effect of cosmetic injectables, so I thought it would be a good idea to discuss it in a little more detail. I want to explain what bruises are, what causes them, and how to minimise the risk of a bruise. Bruises are essentially a leakage of blood into the tissues. A little leak causes
Almost every new patient that I see who is interested in having a little lost volume replenished says exactly the same thing to me. It goes along the lines of “But I’m scarred of looking overfilled – like some of the women I see”. It stands to reason that if these patients have come to see me despite a fear

Carl is amazing!! Thank you for changing my life. So down to earth and patient.
I can’t speak highly enough about how welcome and helpful all the girls are at Envisage. Natalie and Jamie who I have had treatments with were just so helpful, friendly and down to earth. I received the warmest welcome from the girls on reception and they are more than helpful when booking backup appointments. Thank you for your very pleasant and warm atmosphere at Envisage.
Cannot fault the lovely service and smiles I receive every time I go to Envisage. Great team, professional service and always a smile to walk away with. Thank you 🙂
I have been there twice and both times I have left feeling very happy with the service and am definitely going to recommend to friends. I would way rather pay a little bit more and get looked after the way I have at your clinic. Thankyou.
I was apprehensive at first going to a new place but I was made to feel very comfortable – thank you. Looking forward to my next visit.
So pleased with the service from Envisage: appointment reminders and changes if needed. Samantha is the best and I’m so glad I decided to try Samantha and Envisage. The results of my treatments are outstanding and The actual procedures were very comfortable with no down time. I look forward to revisiting Samantha and Envisage for continuing work in progress.
Carl is fantastic! I’d recommend him to anyone trying anti-wrinkle treatments or any other procedure for the first time as he takes the time to explain the procedure and the options thoroughly. I thought getting needles in the face would hurt, but Carl’s technique is flawless and painless. Envisage will exceed your expectations from your first visit.
Emily was very pleasant and helpful, answering my many questions and concerns about different procedures. The clinic was attractive but not intimidating.
You have rewound the years on my face and I now look as young, as I feel on the inside.
