Breast Enlargement UK YouTube Video Nears 60,000 Views in Under 6 Months

Aurora Clinics Released their Breast Enlargement UK & Breast Enlargement London and Birmingham Video on YouTube in December 2012 and it is Already Nearing 60,000 Views. Almost 30,000 people have seen snapshots of Aurora Clinics’ Buckinghamshire clinic and have heard all about their breast enlargement UK procedure’s 3 point plan from the Surgical Director, Adrian Richards.

As the video explains, every patient who comes through their doors for breast enlargement surgery is entitled to as many free consultation appointments as necessary. This forms the first point of their three point plan, “We have developed a network of the best and most experienced surgeons throughout the UK” explains Aurora’s spokesperson. This means that all of their potential patients, new patients and current patients have access to a specialist surgeon in a location that’s convenient for them. “In their very first appointment, the patient will meet the surgeon who will ultimately carry out their procedure.” says the spokesperson. “This allows the patient to ask all the questions that they want to and make sure they are certain that they want to proceed with surgery.”

At one of their free consultation appointments, patients will undergo a ‘sizing appointment’. “This is second step of our plan. In this sizing appointment, we invite breast enlargement UK patients to bring in different items of their clothing. Their surgeon will then try a variety of shapes, sizes and makes of implant to identify the best way forward. This lets the patient get a realistic idea of how they will look after their procedure and make sure that the end result will be as they imagined.” explains their spokesperson.

Aurora Clinics’ comprehensive After Care Policy completes their three point plan. Their After Care Policy includes a 24 hour hotline that all patients are given access to and encouraged to use. Their spokesperson adds, “We also invite our patients back to their local clinic for free annual appointments so their surgeon can check and make sure that they’re fully healed and everything is as it should be post surgery.”

Many patients first come to Aurora with a clear goal of what they want to achieve in their mind. Aurora’s expert surgeons are then able to advise patients on the most appropriate treatment or procedure to achieve their ideal outcome. “During their consultation appointments, our surgeons will discuss with their patient all of the treatment options in full. We offer a number of breast surgeries; breast uplift, breast reduction inverted nipple correction, and of course breast enlargement UK. Our highly skilled surgeons will advise our patients which procedure would be the most appropriate for them and what will achieve their desired results.” says the Aurora spokesperson.

Aurora Clinics now have an extensive video library within their YouTube channel, ClinicsAurora. With 525 videos in their channel, Aurora hopes that they can help people by answering the most frequently asked questions about breast surgeries so they can make an informed decision about taking the first step.

Birmingham Men Opt To Be Hair Free

The Harley Medical Group’s Birmingham clinic reports rise in men seeking laser hair removal.

Following recent reports on the increase in men opting for beauty treatments, The Harley Medical Group reveal that the trend is being reflected at their Birmingham clinic, where it is Asian men opting for laser hair removal, that are making up most of the bookings.

Bookings at The Harley Medical Group’s Birmingham Clinic show that it is most commonly Asian patients looking for alternative hair removal for their face and body. Asian hair is typically darker and thicker than Caucasian or Afro Caribbean hair and grows at the quickest speed of 1.3 cm a month. Therefore laser hair removal is the ideal solution for permanent hair reduction.

Although there is an increase in men looking into Laser Hair Removal, the clinic also sees many darker haired women book in for treatment as a result of feeling self-conscious about excess hair especially on areas such as the face and arms. Patients want an effective way to reduce the amount of hair growth.

Naz Akhtar, Nurse Counsellor at The Harley Medical Group says: “Waxing and shaving can become costly and can leave skin dry and sore. With the average person shaving 11,540 times in one lifetime, hair grows back faster, darker and thicker as a result.

In comparison to waxing, laser hair removal has minimal discomfort and is an effective treatment for ingrown hairs. The laser treatment uses light to penetrate the epidermis (outermost layers of cells in the skin) to target the underlying hair. The dark pigment absorbs the light and destroys the hair and the root and further growth is hindered, leaving the skin with a smooth appearance. Our advanced lasers have been approved by the FDA (US Food and Drug Standard Agency) and can treat all Asian skin types.

Asian hair tends to be quite course and stubborn in comparison to that of our white and black counterparts, but responds brilliantly to our lasers. We see patients leaving the clinic feeling more comfortable and confident than ever before.”

Mesa AZ Dentist Views Banner Health Through The Eyes Of A Child Program Sponsorship

During the last 30 years of providing dental care throughout the Mesa community, the Robison Dental Group has continued to give back o the nonprofit health organizations serving local residents.

This month our staff gave recognition to one of the nonprofit organizations serving the Mesa community. After hearing so much about the programs Banner Health offers through our patients, many who are Banner Health employees, one just tugged at the hearts so much that our entire staff simply said “That’s The One”. It was unanimous. Charlotte, our Office Manger of 25 years, and the entire staff were so excited, the next thing I knew, there was a shopping list for gift bags and an assembly line in our lunchroom.

“Through The Eyes Of A Child” – A Cardon Children’s Medical Center Program Banner Health responded to the needs of our children who were unable to attend school during treatment. Six years ago, Banner Desert Hospital started a program for schooling and the transition back to school. In 2009 the school was relocated to the Cardon Children’s Medical Center, which now serves over 1000 children each year. The program is staffed and managed year round

The teachers at Cardon school act as advocates for each student, communicating with the child’s teachers and school officials .Having the knowledge and experience to know what each child is entitled to, “Through The Eyes Of A Child”.

The school provides a “Re-Entering” phase where a teacher or counselor will accompany the child back into the child’s home school or classroom to provide answers for the teacher and fellow classmates. This is a very emotionally sensitive process that requires the skills and experience of the Program Staff.

The hospital was designed to look and feel as close as possible to home. Each room is equipped with a dining table, small refrigerator, and bathroom. There is a convenient laundry facility available for parent’s personal use.

We want to thank Sue Eaton, MSW, CCLs and Senior Manager Child Life, for the tour and opportunity to be a part of this great organization, and most certainly, the banner employees who speak so highly of Banner Health

We are proud of Banner Health, and we know our gifts and money for our sponsorship is serving one of the best causes we all stand for, “giving back to the community and our precious children within it”.

Don’t Let Your Hair Slow You Down This Summer, Says The Harley Medical Group

The UK’s leading cosmetic surgery group has teamed-up with a group of four London 2012 Olympic athletes as part of a new advertising campaign, designed to encourage more people to experience the benefits of laser hair removal.

Zara Dampney and Shauna Mullin from the Team GB beach volleyball team were joined by diver Pete Waterfield, an Olympic silver medallist, and Commonwealth heptathlon champion Louise Hazel. The athletes each underwent an individual consultation during which a nurse covered exactly how the treatment works and assessed their suitability for the treatment, before undergoing laser hair removal in London, at The Harley Medical Group’s Harley Street clinic.

Before walking out into a crowded arena, the athletes need to be 100 per cent sure that they are looking their best and will be able to compete to the best of their ability. Zara, who will be performing on a specially made beach at Horse Guards Parade in the capital, stressed the importance of knowing that she is looking her best when she walks out onto a court.

She said: “Obviously it is really important to feel confident and to not have to worry about those kinds of things, and we’re travelling around so much that it can be quite difficult to keep on top of it. With permanent hair removal it is one less thing for us to have to worry about.”

Louise added: “Not only has it given me confidence on the track, knowing that I can put my skimpy knickers on and feel safe and sound, it saves so much time with shaving and having to de-frizz and de-fuzz every day.”

Established in 1983, The Harley Medical Group offers a wide range of surgical and non-surgical procedures, from botox injections and line and wrinkle treatments, to breast implants and face lifts. To find out more about the range of procedures available and laser hair removal prices, visit

Sierra Vista AZ. Dentist Drives Costs Down With “Smile-A-Mile” That Pays Your Gas

Dr. Steve Wolfington, of Cochise Caring Dentistry in Sierra Vista, AZ. announces their “Smile-A-Mile Program” that reimburses Cochise County Arizona Residents for gas used in round trip visits to their Sierra Vista dentist office.

Dr. Wolfington states, ”with the continued high price of gas, Cochise County residents are now paying an average of $3.73 per gallon, and with many patients a round trip visit can be up to 70 miles or more.

We have many patients traveling to our dental office in Sierra Vista, AZ. from Benson, Bisbee, Douglas and other outlying cities in Cochise County, even as far as Tucson. Our dental office has been in this location for over 30 years, and many staff members have treated and cared for 2 and 3 generations of our patient’s family and friends. They drive here because they want the comfort of knowing they are in the same good hands as many of their family and friends have for so long.

We were compelled to do something to maintain the comfort level our patients enjoy and for new patients as well, and we want to keep it that way. My wife Liz and I wanted to find a way we could help off-set the high cost of gas, and we came up with a simple program to help out our patients, “Smile-A-Mile”.

Smile-A-Mile reimburses patients for the round trip cost of gas

Our “Smile-A-Mile” Program reimburses our patients for their round trip cost of gas for each visit. We calculated the mileage from each of the cities like Benson, Douglas, Tombstone, Bisbee and more, to our Sierra Vista, AZ Dentist Office. We used the average miles per gallon that a typical family vehicle gets according to statistics, the average cost of per gallon of gas throughout Cochise County Arizona, and came up with our “Smile-A-Mile Program”. As an example, our Benson Arizona Patients are now being reimbursed $7.00 for each and every visit to our Sierra Vista Dental office, and all they need to do is bring in a water, electricity or phone bill to show proof of residence”.

We asked Dr. Wolfington “What about people with more than one family member or friend being treated, how are they reimbursed”?

“We kept it simple as we could; it is reimbursed per patient, so as to support car pooling. If there are 3 patients in one visit, it is three times the gas reimbursement amount. The amount to be reimbursed is credited to their individual treatment upon payment for services. We have placed the rates of reimbursement for 8 cities on our new Cochise Caring Dentistry website, and if anyone outside of these cities would like to become a patient and join the Smile-A-Mile Program, all they have to do is contact us, tell us what city their traveling from and we’ll respond with the amount.”

The Harley Medical Group skincare wins in IMAGE Beauty Awards 2012

Leading cosmetic surgery group The Harley Medical Group has won at the IMAGE Beauty Awards, which is often cited as Ireland’s most prestigious beauty awards. The group’s performance eye lift was the winning product, being heralded as the ‘best for eye lifting’ in the 2012 awards.

The Harley Medical Group was founded in 1983 and is a leader in the UK world of cosmetic surgery and non-surgical procedures, offering treatments for both men and women at its many clinics.

The IMAGE Beauty Awards has been running for nine years now and over 500 products in four categories were tested for this year’s awards, meaning The Harley Medical Group’s performance eye lift stood up to some stiff competition.

HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW – Thousands Of UK Women Look For Permanent Solutions To Combat Excessive Hair Growth

According to the NHS, millions of UK women suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) which causes most cases of Hirsutism (excessive body hair). For most sufferers, the upper lip, chin, chest and lower back are the most affected areas.

With figures showing one to three pre-menopausal women in every 20 are affected by Hirsutism and up to three quarters of post-menopausal women, there are thousands of women looking for effective hair removal treatments, which offer long lasting results.

Lucy Sharratt, Laser Hair Removal Specialist at The Harley Medical Group, says: “For many women excessive hair growth on the face and body can be a very embarrassing and upsetting condition. Many patients tell us they spend hours a week tweezing, plucking and waxing facial hair, in a bid to keep the condition under control. This is hugely time consuming and can impact greatly on their daily lives. We’re seeing more women approach us who feel confident to talk about the condition, and seek treatments which can help.

One option that many favour is Laser Hair Removal; it’s an effective method, which requires no recovery time, fitting into the busy schedules of many professional women, mothers or students. Laser Hair Removal works by a focused light penetrating the epidermis of the skin and targeting the underlying hair. The hair’s pigment absorbs the light and is destroyed, leaving the skin with a smooth appearance. For facial treatment, such as upper lip and chin, the treatment time will take approximately 15 minutes and a minimum course of 8 treatments is recommended.

Hormonal changes associated with PCOS can mean that some of the dormant hair cells can become activated following a course of treatments, maintenance treatments can then be performed. The hairs which do grow back are much finer and become easier to manage.”

The Harley Medical Group has over 15 years Laser Hair Removal experience and have performed over 250,000 treatments to date. With 31 clinics nationwide, and a team of specialist Nurses, the Group is the provider of choice for many patients, with 85% of their bookings for Laser Hair Removal treatments being amongst women.

Jennifer Goody, 28 year old Laser Hair Removal patient at The Harley Medical Group, says: “I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome when I was 23; I’d noticed excess hair on my upper lip and chin for about a year and went to the doctor as I was worried. When I was first diagnosed, I used hair removal cream and would spend hours every week checking my face in the mirror. I’ve had four laser hair treatments so far and I’m already noticing much less hair growing; I feel so much more confident, and no longer have to spend hours worrying about my appearance.”

Lisa Littlehales Top Tips for ultimate bridal beauty preparation:

It’s recommended to drink around two litres of water every day. If you don’t already do this then it’s a great habit to pick up six months before the wedding, in order to encourage clear glowing skin in time for the big day.

Make sure that you are not caught out in the weeks leading up to the wedding and book any treatments you are planning to have at least 6 weeks in advance.

Finding and sticking to a beauty regime that suits you around six months before the wedding, will ensure that you have time to tackle any particular skin issues such as pigmentation. If pigmentation is your problem, try the Anti-Ageing Youth Serum. This contains Daisy extract, a skin lightening agent which is clinically proven to even out pigmentation, and stable Vitamin C – a strong form of the vitamin which promotes the production of collagen and helps to brighten the skin.

If you want a sun kissed glow but don’t want to use tanning beds or splash out on a spray tan, The Harley Medical Group offer a Rejuvenating Self-Tanning Lotion, with a refreshing citrus sent. Make sure you apply two weeks before the wedding, so that you get the coverage you want right, to ensure you have a perfect looking tan on the day.

Everyone’s nightmare is a blemish just before their wedding day – try the Anti-Microbial Cell Renewal Cream which will deal with any difficult blemishes by stimulating blood flow to the area. The cream contains willow bark extract which will cut through the oily skin surface and increase cell turn over to give you healthy clearer looking skin.

The Harley Medical Group Reveals Their New Dermatologically Tested Skincare Range To Help Combat Troublesome Skin

Although skin acne is largely thought of as a problem affecting teenagers, 50% of all women and 25% of men will have acne at some time in their adult lives. Today with more people experiencing the on-set of acne in their 20’s and 30’s, adults are increasingly searching for effective solutions to help combat the condition.

The Harley Medical Group, UK experts with 28 years’ experience in non-surgical treatments, have launched their debut skincare range, comprising 12
dermatologically tested products which have been tested on patients across the UK. Designed as a proactive daily skincare regime, the range is also recommended to be used in conjunction with prescribed skin treatments, available from each of their 31 clinics nationwide.

Bernadette Harte, Nurse Counsellor at The Harley Medical Group, says: “Adult acne is a real problem and the first question our patient’s ask is why now? Often they had clear skin as a teenager and don’t associate this condition with adulthood. Humidity, stress and hormones are all contributing factors, so with warmer weather approaching and job stress high for many professionals, the summer can equal ‘acne season’ for many adults.

“People most affected by acne will have increased sensitivity in their sebaceous glands, which produce oil. When skin cells become blocked the sebum oil and dead skin cannot escape, resulting in an inflammation around the blocked cells. Bacteria can build-up and in turn produce blackheads, white head and angry, red spots.

“Patients approach us seeking advice on a whole new skincare regime which will not only clear up existing spots, but also prevent the problem from re-occurring. For more troublesome skin, we can combine the skincare products with non-surgical treatments. We’ve treated over 500,000 patients since we opened our first clinic, and harnessed our knowledge to offer our patient’s the most effective treatment combinations possible.”

The Harley Medical Group’s Anti-Acne Guide
– Ultra Anti-Bac Cream (£29 for 30ml) – The cream includes a combination of natural ingredients formulated to help reduce skin breakouts and the appearance of pimples, pustules and comedones for oily skin types. This cream will help calm the skin as well as reduce the amount of sebum produced. Apply twice daily. Gently rub the cream into the skin on acne affected areas, with attention around typically oily areas such as the nose and chin.

– Gentle Cleanser (£26 for 200ml) – This mild and gentle sweet orange cleanser helps to boost skin cell turnover, help dead skin escape and keeps skin fresh and clear. The orange oil is also shown to relieve nervous tension and stress. Use twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening.

– Anti Microbial Cell Renewal Cream (£32 for 30ml) – Ideal for difficult blemishes, the cream contains a blend of active ingredients containing botanical seed extract that increases blood flow and helps to recover skin cell turnover. Apply a small amount to acne affected areas and allow the cream to fully absorb.

– Replenishing Exfoliator (£35 for 50ml) – Delivers collagen into the skin resulting in a firmer regenerated skin tone. The Vitamin C derivative and Beta Carotene help to promote collagen formation whilst the natural bamboo exfoliator gently removes dead skin cells leaving smoother softer skin.
Use once a week. Apply onto wet skin and massage in circular motions to ensure maximum cell stimulation.

For more stubborn acne, combine skincare products with the below Non-Surgical treatments for maximum results

– Aesthera PPx (from £60) – One of the most highly effective skin rejuvenation treatments, this is the only laser treatment which has been approved by the FDA* for treatment of comedonal acne (blackheads & whiteheads). Visible improvement of lesions can be seen between 24-48 hours after treatment. For maximum results, book a course of 4-6 treatments.

– Medical Microdermabrasion (from £95) – A mechanical exfoliation treatment which takes away the top layer of dead skin cells by releasing medical grade crystals at a high velocity onto the skin surface, helping to combat acne, blackheads and whiteheads. Following the treatment, the skin is in a better condition to absorb acne creams. For maximum results, book a course of 6 treatments with 2 weeks apart for each.

– Obagi Blue Peel (£595) – An effective skin peel treatment which helps reduce acne scars and large pores by removing dead skin cells of aged and damaged skin, replacing them with new, healthier cells. Following the treatment, the skin will peel, and heal within 7-10 days giving immediate results and continue to become clearer and healthier for the next 4-6 weeks. For maximum results, book one treatment every 6-8 weeks.

Sleep Disruption Linked to Alzheimer’s Risk

A full night of sleep is needed for good health but as a Bethesda sleep apnea dentist I know many people have sleep that is disrupted throughout the night. A new study shows that people who have disrupted sleep were more likely to be at risk for memory problems and Alzheimer’s disease.

According to study author Dr. Yo-El Ju “Disrupted sleep appears to be associated with the build-up of amyloid plaques, a hallmark marker of Alzheimer’s disease, in the brains of people without memory problems. Further research is needed to determine why this is happening and whether sleep changes may predict cognitive decline.” The study showed that people who slept soundly throughout the night were 5 times less likely to have the plaque buildup. The researchers are not sure of the direction of the relationship, whether the sleep disruption is causing the brain changes or if brain changes are disrupting sleep. More research will be needed.

Sleep can be disrupted for any number of reasons; a barking dog, insomnia, a bed partner’s loud snoring or sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is especially dangerous because it affects the sleep of the person with the disease and also disrupts the sleep of that persons bed partner. The loud snoring and gasping throughout the night are not remembered by the sleep apnea patient but the spouse can describe the entire night in great detail. If you experience loud snoring and daytime tiredness you may have obstructive sleep apnea.

Please contact Bethesda sleep medicine dentist, Dr. Bernard L. Greenbaum at 301-530-3600 to arrange for your screening for obstructive sleep apnea.
