new 30 minute lunchtime fox eye treatment which lifts the brows with invisible thread

A cosmetic doctor has revealed how a subtle brow-lifting treatment to create a ‘fox-eyed’ look has seen a 15-fold increase since her booking system went live following the loosening of lockdown this month. 

Dr. Mahsa Saleki, founder of SAS Aesthetics in Harley Street, has helped pioneer the treatment known as ‘Fox Eyes’ or ‘Designer Eyes’, a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure lifts the brows and outer corners of your eyes.

The £500 treatment uses dissolvable stitches to create almond shaped eyes with a lifted brow tail, and is aimed to giving women a lifted brow and upper eye lid lift without the downtime of surgery as it takes just half an hour – and heals completely in less than two weeks.

Speaking to FEMAIL, Dr Saleki revealed many of her clients are busy career women looking to have the treatment in their lunch break and said they want to emulate the youthful winged eyes of celebrities like Kylie and Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid

Harley street’s Dr. Mahsa Saleki told FEMAIL how a subtle brow-lifting treatment which gives clients a ‘cat-eyed’ look has seen a 15-fold increase since her booking system went live, following the loosening of lockdown this month  – inspired by celebrities like Bella Hadid (seen left, before, and right with a more lifted look in recent years)

She said: ‘The Fox Eyes treatment has proved very popular in our clinic since I introduced the technique back in January. 

‘However, following lockdown it’s become one of the only treatments clients seem to be asking for, with an almost 15 times increase in bookings since our booking system went live this month. 

‘As with a lot of current beauty and aesthetic trends, social media plays a big role, particularly with increased engagement during lockdown. 

‘The Fox Eyes treatment itself is something a lot of our clients hadn’t come across before but the effect it creates is something that makeup trends have been aspiring to for some time.’

She continued: ‘This 30 minute lunchtime treatment can elongate the eyes, lift the brows and open the upper eyelid, which not only is flattering with or without makeup but also creates an openness and focus on the eyes that few other treatments do. 

‘Our clients love that such an outcome can now be achieved in around 30 minutes, when previously surgery was the only option. 

‘The treatment is proving to be popular among a range of people – from young Instagram influencers wanting the latest aesthetics to look like super models Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, to older women looking for a reasonably priced option to combat hooded eyes.’

How does the Fox Eyes treatment work?

How it works

The procedure itself involves the administration of a local anaesthetic injection above the brow and insertion of a Polydioxanone suture under the skin through a single needle puncture. This is then left in place to support the lift.

Down time

The suture will dissolve overtime with minimal side effects. The skin folds and needle mark will fully heal over 3-10days leaving behind a natural lift. 

Cost

The Cost on average is £500-£750. 

How long does it last?

Results last up to a year. 

How does it differ from surgery?

There are no permanent changes to your face and you won’t have part of your eyelid cut away as with a  blepharoplasty. You can also adapt the changes after the treatment if you’d like a less dramatic look.

Describing how the treatment works, she continued: ‘This medical treatment, which should be done by a doctor uses dissolvable sutures to lift the outer eye corner as well as for those who wish to simultaneously lift the brow. 

‘However, it’s important to point out that the treatment can be customised so that the brow is minimally changed. This treatment is a great alternative to surgery and can be done in just under 30 minutes.

‘For all the clients the treatment modality is the same, dissolvable suture materials are introduced under the skin using local anaesthetic with an instant result which heals into a natural and flattering lift with an average downtime of one week. 

‘The results however are versatile and can be tweaked in accordance with what the individual client is after.’

She added: ‘Ultimately what this trend is proving to us,is that clients truly want safe, affordable and effective alternatives to surgery. They are increasingly opting for temporary tweakments that respect their autonomy to revert back to their most natural selves if they so wished.’

Comparing it to permanent surgery, such as blepharoplasty where part of the eyelid is cut away and stitched, Dr. Mahsa Saleki continued: ‘Prior to this treatment, very few options other than surgery were available to lift the brows and alter the eyes shape and elongation. 

‘This treatment works by creating a mechanical lift of one or all three elements of the lateral canthus of the eyes, upper eyelids and eyebrows in full synchrony without a single incision. 

‘The absolute beauty of this treatment is that the final result is fully determined by the client and can be changed instantly if the client would so wish, making it a tweakment true to its core.’

Speaking about how she will perform the treatment with COVID safety measures, Dr Saleki said: ‘All treatments are done with staff wearing full PPE and clients wearing face masks and maintaining strict hygiene measures.

‘There are two stages to the treatment which each take less than 10 minutes – meaning we do not breach the current government guidelines of a maximum time spent of 15 minutes at two meters apart.’

Madeleine McCann suspect ‘is capable of taking a child’, partner-in-crime says

madeleine mccann suspect is capable of taking a child partner in crime says

A German drifter and partner-in-crime of Maddie prime suspect Christian Brueckner has branded him an ‘evil psychopath’ who is ‘capable of taking a child’.

Manfred Seyferth, 64, said 43-year-old Brueckner was known as ‘The Climber’ for his ability to break into homes, and was robbing apartments in Praia da Luz the year the toddler vanished.

Seyferth, who acted as a key witness against Brueckner when he was jailed for the rape of an American woman in 2018, believes the peadophile is guilty of taking thee-year-old Madeleine from her parents’ holiday apartment in 2007.

Speaking to The Sun, he added: ‘Christian is a bad, bad man. He is evil.

‘I never liked him and he is a psychopath. He is obsessed with small children and I didn’t like it.

‘He always had a young girlfriend with him and I think he is easily capable of taking a small child.’

Investigators from Britain and Germany have not charged Brueckner in the Madeleine McCann case, but earlier this year revealed he is their prime suspect.

While the case remains a ‘missing persons’ inquiry in the UK, prosecutors in Germany have gone a step further and claimed to have strong evidence that she is dead.

However, that evidence has not been revealed to the public, and despite assurances to the contrary, Madeleine’s family and legal team say they have not seen it either.

German police also revealed that they dug up an allotment that belonged to Brueckner last year in connection with the Madeleine case, believing that there may have been child abuse images buried there.

It comes after detectives acting in a different case discovered USB sticks containing some 8,000 child abuse images buried near a different site that Brueckner used four years earlier.

Detectives claim phone signals place Brueckner in the area of Praia da Luz on the night Madeleine vanished from her parent’s holiday apartment – May 3.

They say that Brueckner, who left Germany for Portugal in 1995 after serving jail time for a child sex offence, then left Portugal and returned to Germany shortly after Maddie went missing.

That tallies with an account given by Seyferth, who claims to have lived inside a camper van parked next to a farmhouse that Brueckner rented in the Algarve.

He says Brueckner upped and left after the schoolgirl’s disappearance, and that he didn’t see him again until a year later, at a hippie festival in Spain.

‘He turned up in a big American camper van and was with a young girl, she looked about 15 and he would have been double her age,’ he said.

‘I didn’t like it one bit so I had nothing to do with him.

‘That’s why I think he may have something to do with Maddie. He broke in and saw her and because he likes young girls — he’s got lots of convictions — he took her.’

Seyferth also spoke about finding videos inside Brueckner’s apartment that showed him torturing and raping the American woman, which led to a lengthy jail sentence which he is currently serving in Germany.

Brueckner is appealing that sentence, with a verdict expected next week.

Seyferth said that, along with the video of the American woman, he and another man – Helge Busching – also found a gun, and a video of Brueckner apparently torturing a second woman, who appeared to be around 15 years old.

Describing the footage as ‘evil’, Seyferth added that he and Busching took the gun and tossed it into a lake.

It is unclear who the other woman in the footage is, though Seyferth said she appeared around the age of Brueckner’s girlfriends. 

Busching is believed to be the man who gave Brueckner’s name to Scotland Yard, though it is unclear why he waited so long to do so.

Friedrich Fulscher, the lawyer representing Brueckner, says German investigators have yet to send him any evidence in the case.

He points out that his client has not yet been charged, and in the meantime, it is up to detectives to prove his guilt.

Kim Jong-un could be set to unveil new North Korea weapons

kim jong un could be set to unveil new north korea weapons

North Korea analysts are watching for signs that Kim Jong-un is set to unveil new weapons or test-fire a submarine-launched missile in the coming weeks. 

Formations of troops have been practising for what is expected to be a major military parade in on October 10, the 75th anniversary of the ruling Workers’ Party.

Some observers say North Korea may use the Pyongyang parade to showcase its largest missiles for the first time since 2018. 

Satellite photos have also shown a flurry of activity at the Sinpo South Shipyard where the North builds submarines, including in a secure basin where a barge used in previous underwater launches is docked. 

‘We’re monitoring developments, as there is a possibility that a submarine-launched ballistic missile test will be conducted there,’ said South Korea’s incoming military chief Won In-choul.

Experts say the North’s push to acquire submarine-launched missiles is a worrying development because they are difficult to detect before launch.   

A source told Seoul-based website Daily NK that the shipyard is ‘bustling with activity to prepare for the ballistic missile launch’, with officials and researchers arriving since late August. 

Dave Schmerler, a researcher at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, said there were signs of work being done on the missile barge.

However, he said the activity would also be consistent with basic repair work after the typhoons which lashed the Korean peninsula earlier this month.    

Won, the nominee for chairman of South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the North could carry out a submarine-launched ballistic missile test once repairs are complete.  

He said South Korea’s military is keeping a close watch on developments there, according to written remarks ahead of a confirmation hearing.  

38 North, a US-based think tank, said imagery showed ‘heavy activity’ at the shipyard, but that ‘no other indicators of launch preparations were observed.’ 

Incoming South Korean defence minister Suh Wook said on Monday that he considered a submarine test unlikely because there is too little time to prepare.   

On September 4, the US-based Center for Strategic and International Studies said satellite imagery showed activity at Sinpo that was ‘suggestive, but not conclusive, of preparations for an upcoming test of a Pukguksong-3 submarine launched ballistic missile from the submersible test stand barge.’  

The North has not launched intercontinental ballistic missiles since 2017, a pause which Donald Trump has hailed as a diplomatic success. 

However, North Korea said last October that it had test-fired a Pukguksong-3, prompting no major reaction from Trump. 

Experts say past North Korean underwater-launched missile tests were conducted from a submersible barge with a launch tube, not a fully-fledged submarine.

 In July 2019, Kim inspected a newly built submarine which appeared to be the North’s most sophisticated model with several launch tubes.

Jung Changwook, head of the Korea Defense Study Forum in Seoul, said North Korea could perform a test to upgrade its nuclear attack capability and put pressure on Washington after the US election in early November. 

Jung said a missile fired from the barge would have a potential range of up to 310 miles, posing no direct threat to the US mainland. 

Nuclear talks between Trump and Kim have made little headway since the collapse of their second summit in Vietnam in early 2019. 

The failure of the summit was followed by months of angry rhetoric, although hopes were briefly revived when Trump made an impromptu visit to the DMZ and met Kim. 

Relations with the South have also been at a standstill, and Pyongyang blew up a North-South liaison office on its side of the border earlier this year. 

Few of the pledges signed by Kim and the South’s president Moon Jae-in at their 2018 Pyongyang summit – among them joint sports teams and an Olympic bid, work towards transport links, and a visit by Kim to Seoul – have come to pass. 

The North is now grappling with multiple crises including typhoon damage, the coronavirus pandemic which led to the closure of its border with China, and tough US sanctions.   

But Seoul’s unification minister Lee In-young said this week: ‘I hope that communication channels, including the inter-Korean liaison office, can be restored and we can resume open-minded dialogue at an early date.’

recovery hopes for uk plc as retail sales rose 0 8 per cent last month

There were fresh signs of revival in the economy today with figures showing Britons going out spending. 

Retail sales were up 0.8 per cent last month from July, fueled by home improvements and continuing high levels of online shopping. 

The figures are now 4 per cent above February before the coronavirus lockdown hit – suggesting that confidence is returning. However, clothing stores are still suffering.

Jonathan Athow of the Office for National Statistics said: ‘Retail sales continued to grow, further surpassing their pre-pandemic level.

‘Sales of household goods thrived as the demand for home improvement continued and, despite a dip this month, online sales remained high.

‘However, clothing stores continued to struggle with sales still well below their February level.

‘Overall, the switch to greater online sales means the high street remains under pressure.’   

The 0.8 per cent increase in August was a slowing from 3.6 per cent monthly growth in July.

But it exceeded the expectations from analysts, who had forecast a 0.6 per cent improvement.

Online sales continued to be strong as shoppers chose to stay at home but dipped slightly against the previous month.

Sales from online channels moved 2.5 per cent lower against July’s data but were still 46.8 per cent higher than pre-pandemic levels.

Spending on household goods was particularly strong in August, with retailers reporting a 9.9 per cent jump in sales of homeware products compared to February.

Clothing sales have struggled to recover at the same pace and remained 15.9 per cent below pre-Covid levels.

The ONS also reported that 51.5 per cent of food retailers said they saw a decrease in footfall from August 10 to August 23, which it said could be linked to the reopening of other areas of the economy, such as restaurants and bars.

Sales data from large retailers also showed a slight dip in sales in July and August compared to the previous months, as more people ate out again.

Jonathan Athow, deputy national statistician for economic statistics, said: ‘Retail sales continued to grow, further surpassing their pre-pandemic level.

‘Sales of household goods thrived as the demand for home improvement continued and, despite a dip this month, online sales remained high.

‘However, clothing stores continued to struggle with sales still well below their February level.

‘Overall, the switch to greater online sales means the high street remains under pressure.’

Helen Dickinson, chief executive of the British Retail Consortium, said: ‘It is clear that the retail industry is entering a period of fragile recovery, with August showing the third consecutive month of growth.

‘However, the recovery remains a mixed bag, with high growth in online sales while city centre shops suffered as a result of low footfall.’

Lisa Hooker, consumer markets leader at PwC, said: ‘After the stellar recovery in retail sales we saw in the past three months, it’s no surprise that the monthly rate of growth slowed in August.

‘Being the second month of the high street reopening in full, much of the focus last month was on the hospitality and leisure sectors.

‘The popularity of initiatives such as Eat Out To Help Out even led to a rare slowdown in grocery sales growth.’
