It’s all about the fibroblasts!

It’s official – fibroblasts hold the key to skin regeneration. Fibroblasts are a type of cell that is found in the connective tissue of the body’s organs. Here, they produce proteins such as collagen – and most of us have heard something about how important collagen is in keeping our skin looking fresh and young. They are the key to skin rejuvenation and, here at Aesthetics of Essex, where we are always determined to boost our knowledge of what treatments […]

Let the experts give your skin a fresh look

Microdermabrasion…chemical peels…if you’re not an expert these can sound quite scary. But in the hands of experts, such as our professionals at Aesthetics of Essex, you’ll be armed with all the information and reassurance you need to achieve a fresh, new look. We offer both these procedures at our clinic in Upminster and, as with all our products and treatments, before we decide to offer them, we carry out detailed research. We want our Aesthetics of Essex customers to look […]

Boost your bust

Go bust! They say that countries can go through ‘boom and bust’ years. If you were to judge the UK on the latter – well, sort of! – you’d definitely say the emphasis would be on ‘bust’. In terms of size, that is… A study featured in the Daily Mail online (see link below) has reported that the figure of the average British woman has changed dramatically over the last six decades. In the 1950s, the average-sized British woman was […]

Perfect pout

You’ve followed all the beauty advice – you’ve buffed your lips, chosen the right lip colour for you/your outfit, picked the right type of lipstick (matte, gloss) and used lip liner judiciously, with the aim of NOT looking like the mad old bat played by Bette Davis in the film “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” – see the scary pix in this link, especially the first pic in the second row…;_ylt=A9mSs2thRhBZpB4AxBxLBQx.;_ylu=X3oDMTByZmVx In theory, you should look great. But something […]

Scouse brow

“Who’s” got a Scouse brow now? So ‘who’ was that almost certainly sporting a ‘Scouse Brow’ on one of TV’s hottest programmes this month? It was none other than Pearl Mackie, the lucky lady who landed the much-coveted role as the new Doctor Who companion, ‘Bill Potts’! The reviews were in and they were pretty much universally ‘rave’ ones. Pearl certainly took the small screen by storm and was an equal match for the current Doctor, Peter Capaldi. Here she […]

Barcode lines

Banish the barcode lines! Ladies, we hate to break it to you, but just when you thought the world had run out of unpleasant epithets for the bits of your body you don’t like, up pops a new one. We’ve all heard of trout pouts, bingo wings, saddlebags, cankles…now how about ‘barcode lines’? A Daily Mail reader wrote to their columnist Dr Tracy Mountford saying that although she liked the way her numerous dental implants had given support to her […]


Liposuction gets real results We all know that models on the catwalk don’t look like the rest of us. But perhaps we’re entitled to expect a little bit more realism from the photos in adverts? Either way, fashion company Net-a-Porter shot itself in the foot recently – albeit in a most amusing way – when a mistake by someone within the organisation let a rather interesting photo into the public domain… The Net-a-Porter advert was for a pair of women’s […]

Be Beautiful for Success

The good-looking get ahead They say that ‘fortune favours the brave’ but it seems that these days ‘fortune favours the fair’. There have been many studies whose results show that people who are perceived to be more attractive are also thought to be nicer, more decent people – and go on to be more successful. Only this month, in the Evening Standard, columnist Charles Saatchi wrote a thoughtful piece on this very subject (see link below) He says: “Agreeable-looking […]

Be Safe Rather Than Sausage-Like

Be safe to avoid the sausage effect We can’t say it enough – be safe rather than sorry. Any kind of cosmetic treatments can entail some risk. But if you come to the professionals, such as our trained, experienced practitioners here at Aesthetics of Essex, you can be confident of a good result with minimal pain and risk. People who don’t do their research can end up having painful treatments with very unfortunate results. The unlucky lady featured in the […]
