What are the most in demand treatments that you offer?
First one is tear trough filler. Essentially the area between lower eyelid a cheeks is treated. Due to ageing you might experience volume loss in that area. Which creates hollowness. Tear trough is great for volume restoration to improve the appearance of dark circles and lines!
My second fave is non-surgical rhinoplasty! This is great to use filler to reshape nose and for you not to go under the knife! Super popular!
Lastly, PRP facial, which uses patients blood taking to plasma and injecting it into the face. The plasma has growth factors which regenerate and rejuvenation.
Are you seeing more of a demand since the rise of Instagram stars being very open about their cosmetic procedures?
There is far more openness in people seeking treatment now as there is a lot more transparency with celebrities and influencers on social media. It is great as is far more informative to the public. So yes it has helped 🙂
Have you found celebrities such as the Kardashians have influenced your clients?
Yes, 100% she is the one that really popularised the Vampire PRP treatment! Which has made it one of the most popular out there!
What kind of feedback do you get from your clients who have had lip filler?
A lot of excitement and joy! Feeling very happy and from being given the results they need. People describe my work as artistic as I have a very special technique which is very much proportion driven.
How long do lip fillers last?
Around 6 months. It very much depends on the metabolism of the client and product used.
Have you found your demographic has shifted to a younger audience in recent years?
It has 100% impacted the age of the client that we see. We used to see an older person coming in traditionally whereas now a lot more younger people are trying to prevent ageing and look their best self.
Have you ever turned away a client? If so, why?
Absolutely, I always perform thorough consultation. Being a fully qualified doctor, I must ensure they are looking for treatment for a justifiable reason. A Life changing reason perhaps. If someone has body dysmorphia with the way they perceive themselves this type of patient I urge not to invest and would guide them to medical help before getting anything done. Intention is key.
What percentage of your clients are under the age of 30?
50% under. 50% over.
Do you have any new treatments you are offering?
The Ellanse Collagen treatment from Sin Clair. It is a fabulous treatment for the 35 + group. It induces the natural collagen production for up to 2-4 years at times. This tightens skin, fine lines and makes you look super healthy and well.
What is your favourite treatment you offer?
Tear trough for those who genetically struggle. I love to see the change in my client’s self-esteem with this one!
