About Our Treatments Offered

We are medically qualified aesthetic practitioners, so we fully understand the anatomy of the body in order to ensure the treatment you receive is specific to the areas concerned. Since we are medically qualified, we have the added advantage of being able to prescribe all of our treatments for our patients. You will get peace of mind that you are in the safest of hands when attending our clinics.

As well as weekdays, we offer weekend and evening appointments as we understand how difficult it can be to try and fit some time in for ourselves to look and feel better into our busy lives!


Anti Wrinkle Treatments

BOTOX® is the trade name for a drug called Botulinum Toxin A.  BOTOX® injections are safe when administered by an experienced practitioner with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy. It works by temporarily blocking nerve activity of treated muscles. As the muscles relax, lines created by their contraction gradually fade, and sometimes even disappear completely resulting in smooth skin.

BOTOX is a prescription-only medicine and must be prescribed by a qualified medical professional after a face to face consultation.

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating, usually occuring at the armpits and feet. Although some people have hyperhidrosis as a consequence of another illness, in many others it is merely due to overactive swear glands or over activity of the sympathetic nervous system. Although Botulinum toxin is mainly used by practitioners to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, we are able to inject tiny amounts of toxin in the area using a tiny micro-needle, which stops the nerves from stimulating the sweat glands, which in turns reduces sweating.

At Acorn Aesthetics, our medically qualified practitioners are able to help treat excessive sweating of the armpits, as well as the feet. It is especially beneficial to those who regularly suffer from athletes foot problems.

Dermal Fillers

We only use FDA approved Dermal Fillers made from Hyaluronic Acid which is found naturally in the body and is typically reabsorbed over time. Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar that is contained in the body and because it is a naturally occurring substance, it is safe, effective, and allergic occurrence is minimal. As we age, the body produces less and less Hyaluronic Acid. Therefore by injecting fillers under the skin we can rejuvenate the face and restore the fullness to give a more youthful appearance.

The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 9 months. Dermal filler injections can give a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression. It is used to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, and revitalise the skin.

Areas we treat:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Folds like nose to mouth lines and marionette lines
  • Volume replacement to forehead, temples, cheeks, midface, jawline
  • Cheek, chin and Lip enhancement
  • Under eyes to improve dark circles and hollowness – tear trough
  • Hands

Additional Information:

  • Treatment takes around 45 minutes
  • Local Anaesthetic cream applied half an hour before treatment
  • Results are instant but can take Completes
  • Results last 6-18 months depending on product used

Advanced Micro-needling

Treatment benefits:

  • Acne Scarring
  • Aged and sun damaged skin
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Loss of dermal volume and support

Our Advanced painless micro-needling device is used to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will in turn stimulate the skin to produce new collagen and elastin, thereby helping to lift, tighten and rejuvenate the skin.

Our medically qualified practitioner will use a topical anaesthetic cream on the face prior to the procedure to make it as comfortable and painless as possible. The precision engineering of the device means the practitioner can alter the needle depth of the device according to your needs, which allows for a more comfortable treatment and more individualised and accurate results.

After you have the micro-needling treatment your body will start to repair itself and naturally regenerate, and new collagen and elastin will begin to form under the skin over a period of Completes. The results are smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.

Additional Information

  • Treatment time is 30 minutes for actual needling treatment – 30 minutes for anaesthetic cream so total of 1 hour treatment.
  • Immediately after treatment skin will look red like mild sunburn, but will start to subside after 1-2 hours
  • We will supplement the skin with antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients to give the skin a boost, followed by application of an SPF 50 product to protect the skin, which you should continue to use daily
  • We recommend treatment should be carried out every Completes for maximum effect

Prices:

  • 1 treatment £250
  • 3 treatments £590
  • 6 treatments £990

Profhilo

Profhilo hailed as the “liquid moisturiser” is a revolutionary new treatment which is said to “cure” wrinkles rather than “fill” them. A series of hyaluronic acid injections are administered around the face in order to encourage new collagen and elastin to be formed. The hyaluronic acid differs from your standard fillers in that it does not add volume to the skin, so it doesnt look like you have had “work done” to the face. The product is a much higher concentration of hyaluronic acid, so its ultra-hydrating for the skin, which helps improve overall skin quality.

Prices:

  • 2 treatments needed one month apart £500

Fat Dissolving Injections

Our fat dissolving injections are designed to treat localised pockets of fat. The active ingredient is Sodium Deoxycholate which works to dissolve fat in areas that are difficult to lose via traditional routes such as exercise and diet. The product is available at a facial concentration and a body concentration to target the two areas effectively.

Prices:

  • Per Facial Area £250
  • Per Body Area £400
