Our holistic approach extends beyond treatments to overall skin health, making us a trusted choice in Hastings for achieving your skin care goals with integrity and professionalism.

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to enhance facial features, smooth out wrinkles, and restore volume loss due to ageing. They are composed primarily of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin that helps retain moisture and create a plump, youthful appearance. Fillers can be used in various areas of the face, including the lips, cheeks, and around the mouth, to achieve a more refreshed and rejuvenated look. At La Cara Aesthetics, we use high-quality Juvederm fillers as a safe and effective way to enhance your natural beauty, ensuring results that look and feel natural.

Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, is a purified protein used in aesthetic medicine to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that create wrinkles, particularly around the forehead, eyes, and mouth. This results in a smoother, more youthful complexion. Botulinum toxin is also used for medical purposes, such as treating certain muscular conditions. At La Cara Aesthetics, we use high-quality botulinum toxin and administer treatments with precision and care, ensuring natural-looking results that enhance your facial expressions rather than inhibit them. It’s a safe, minimally invasive treatment with effective and noticeable results.

Skin boosters are advanced injectable treatments designed to hydrate, rejuvenate, and improve the skin’s overall quality. Unlike traditional fillers that target specific volume areas, skin boosters enhance the skin’s overall texture, elasticity, and luminosity. They typically contain hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and other nutrients that nourish the skin.

Polynucleotides are a newer addition to skin booster treatments. They are natural compounds that help repair and rejuvenate the skin at a cellular level. Polynucleotides stimulate collagen production, aid skin hydration, and provide antioxidant benefits, leading to firmer, healthier, and more radiant skin.

At La Cara Aesthetics, we offer a range of skin boosters, including those with polynucleotides, to address various skin concerns. These treatments are tailored to each individual, providing a customized solution for enhanced skin health and appearance.

Before any treatment and every visit, an in-depth consultation will take place, allowing us to understand what you want to achieve. This includes completing a medical history and consenting to the agreed treatments. Numbing cream will then be applied (if required) before we start with treatment. We like to involve you during the treatment to ensure you get the desired results. After treatment, you will receive aftercare advice and a post-treatment care leaflet to take away. We remain on hand to answer any follow-up questions you have.

Yes, all aesthetic treatments are by appointment only. We run regular clinics each week in Hastings. You can book an appointment online or get in touch to book a convenient time. We ask for a £30 consultation fee when booking an appointment, which can be redeemed against any subsequent treatment.
