Sadly we all age. Our youthful elasticity begins to wane and those dreaded wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging don’t discriminate.
To combat these, often people’s minds go straight to surgical (and therefore more invasive) procedures such as facelifts or have fears of bruising,pain and overall discomfort.
Fear not! If you’re new to all things youth elixirs, you’ll be pleased to hear that modern technology and incredible innovations have meant that looking young doesn’t need to be scary at all. The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) found that non-surgical treatments have increased by 40% over the last year in the UK. This trend can be attributed to several factors, including the fact that non- surgical treatments are less invasive, require less downtime and have fewer risks than surgical procedures.
One of the biggest advantages of non-surgical face procedures is that they typically require minimal downtime. Unlike surgical procedures, which may require weeks of recovery time, non-surgical procedure usually allow patients to return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure.
Dermal fillers, for example, are a non-surgical procedure that can be performed in as little as 15-30 minutes. Patients can return to work or other activities right after the procedure, with only mild swelling or bruising that typically resolves within a few days.
At The Banwell Clinic, we believe that enhancing or restoring the appearance of your face should not involve sacrificing your natural beauty. Our approach is to work with your unique features and aesthetics, rather than radically altering them, to achieve subtle and natural-looking results. We understand that preserving your identity and ageing gracefully is important to you, and that’s why we offer non-surgical procedures like Botox injections. Focusing on the forehead and around the eyes, Botox injections can effectively smooth out wrinkles and fine lines without the risk of looking “overdone.” In fact, it can even prevent the formation of new wrinkles, providing noticeable yet subtle improvements to your face.
Improved Self-Confidence + Quality of Life
Naturally, all this ‘age-defying’ brings heighten self-esteem. The University of Bristol found that individuals who underwent dermal filler treatments reported a 90% of participants reporting a boost in their confidence post-treatment. Those just starting out with treatments may see it as a reflection of their own insecurity and wonder why they can’t accept themselves. However, this is about restoring the beauty you
already have and feeling incredible in your own skin once again. You can’t put a price on that feeling.

On top of all that, non-surgical treatments can also be used to address medical conditions, such as excessive sweating and migraines. Botox injections have been found to be effective in reducing the symptoms of these conditions, which can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life.
One of the primary benefits of non-surgical facial procedures is that they are non-invasive and thus low risk. Unlike surgical procedures, which require incisions and a longer recovery period, non- surgical treatments typically involve little to no downtime as mentioned above.
This also means such procedures carry a much lower risk of complications and is administered with little discomfort. Some non- surgical treatments may require the use of local anesthesia, which numbs the treatment area and reduces discomfort.
It is important to note that while there is always some risk involved with any medical procedure, non-surgical treatments are generally considered to be safe and effective, especially when conducted by highly trained practitioners such as Paul Banwell. In addition, all the products used are extensively tested and FDA-approved and can be assured you are in safe hands.
While non-surgical face procedures may not provide permanent results, they can still provide long-lasting results that can last for several months to a year or more. Dermal fillers, for example, can provide results that last up to a year or more, depending on the type of filler used and the area being treated. Botox injections can also provide results that last several months, with some patients reporting results that last up to six months or more.
Looking young has never been so tempting! Convenience, natural- looking results, minimal risk, and versatility the list goes on…
Whether an individual wants to reduce the signs of aging, address specific skin concerns, or improve their overall appearance, there is likely a non-surgical treatment that can help them achieve their goals.
