Dr. Sibthorpe featured in Sheerluxe “When To Start Beauty Prepping For A Big Event, According To The Experts”

Specialising in non-surgical and anti-ageing treatments, Dr.Richard Sibthorpe is the man to visit for tiny tweakments that are subtle and effective…


Allow Yourself Plenty Of Time

“If you’re looking to get Botox (which is one of the most popular treatments pre-big event), I recommend booking a treatment a month to six weeks in advance of your big event. This will give you time for a follow-up review after two weeks to ensure you’re happy with the result. If there is still too much movement, you can get some more Botox injected where needed. The effects will last you three to four months, but with ongoing treatments and top-ups, the results will last much longer. If you’re seeking dermal or lip fillers, book in about three months in advance instead. Not only does this give you plenty of time to make adjustments if necessary, it also allows bruising to settle. It also goes without saying, but do your homework before you book in. Make sure you choose a registered professional; most reputable practitioners are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) or The British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM).”


Consider All Your Options

“There are so many tweakments you can do that are subtle but make a difference. For starters, ‘Straighten, Define & Correct Your Nose,’ is an option that allows you to make adjustments, without going under the knife. Instead, it’s an injectable into the nose with dermal fillers, which corrects anything from slight bumps, to a depressed bridge (saddle nose), a beak-like nose or a droopy tip. The treatment takes 30 minutes and can last up to 18 months with no downtime. Another option is treating dark circles and saggy eyebrows. I use hyaluronic acid fillers to plump up dark circles with a precise amount of specifically-designed dermal filler. It allows you to add volume and structure to the tear trough, while avoiding the puffy, overdone look. As for brows, I use botox to temporarily raise slightly sagging eyebrows and restore a lost arch. Both last for months on end with no downtime. Similarly, with lips, I’ll use the same type of filler to lift a downturned smile and add volume to create a more defined, less lined smile. A little applied to the chin also has the effect of lifting the smile.”


Check You’re Eligible

“While most people can seek treatment, Botox isn’t recommended during pregnancy or while you’re breastfeeding, or if you suffer from a neuromuscular disorder, but your medical history will always be discussed prior to treatment. Make sure you avoid anti-inflammatory drugs before you have injectables too, such as aspirin, Nurofen, omega 3 and vitamin E – it will help to avoid bruising.”
