FAQ

Why choose a medical practitioner to have your procedure done and not a trained beautician?

Apart from all the years of anatomical training that a doctor or nurse might have, medically trained individuals are accountable for their treatments and will be insured. They are also qualified to recognise AND treat complications, beauticians are not and they can’t prescribe medications that might be needed in the event of a complication.

Who will do my treatments?

We have a doctor and a nurse doing all injectable treatments. We have a beautician doin our manicures, pedicures and other beauty treatments.

What should I look for in a practitioner?

They should be registered with a professional body, for doctors, the General medical council (GMC) and nurses the (NMC).

They should be insured and content to show you evidence of this.

They should ask you a full medical history and be content explaining to you how your information will be stored and used.

They should work in a clean, appropriately sized clinic with adequate treatment area and evidence of safe disposal systems for clinical waste.

They should be happy to discuss how they source their products and this should be from UK based pharmacies which will mean adherence to appropriate safety standards.

Aftercare

Anti wrinkle injections

Avoid applying any pressure or makeup on the treated area for 4 hours afterwards.

It can take 2-7 days to see the beginnings of the effect but they can take ups to 14 days to be fully visible. They last 3-5 months.

Dermal Fillers

Some people like to apply arnica cream or take tablets to minimise bruising. You can also ice the area to minimise swelling.

Avoid massaging the area or applying make up for 4 hours after the procedure.

Some people experience some dryness of the lips in the few days after treatment, so it’s worth having a hydrating lip balm to hand.

Facials & Skin Peels
After any facial, dead or ageing skin cells will have been removed giving you a healthy looking glow. It’s very important that a suitable (40+SPF) sun screen is used after these treatments, especially after a retinol peel. This can be purchased through he clinic.
