Skincare, at BrightNewMe

I am passionate about helping my patients improve the quality of their skin, whatever their stage in life, and whatever issues they have with their skin.  In my opinion, undertaking treatments and procedures to enhance and rejuvenate without first improving the underlying quality of the skin is like trying to build a house without solid foundations. At BrightNewMe we look to guide patients through their options, with a view to helping them achieve radiant, healthy-looking skin.

Skin consultations

The first stage of improving skin health entails attending a detailed skin consultation to assess your medical history and existing skincare regime. This is followed by a thorough examination of your skin, including photographic assessment.  I discuss my assessment and findings with you, and offer you suggestions and recommendations to consider.  This may involve procedures to address specific issues (such as skin lesions, or thread veins), or a course of HydraFacial treatments to give the skin an immediate boost.

In addition, and where appropriate, my recommendations may include the use of prescription strength skincare products.  I may devise a skincare regime, bespoke for your own needs, whilst ensuring that my recommendations take into account the financial and time commitment you are able to make.

Prescription based skincare ranges – Obagi® and ZO®

I firmly believe that prescription skincare is THE most effective way to rejuvenate all skin types. At BrightNewMe I recommend and prescribe products from both Obagi® and ZO® ranges (Obagi was the first prescription based range of skin care products introduced into the UK, with ZO being the next stage in skincare science, both pioneered by the renowned Dr Zein Obagi).

Skin care products bought ‘over-the-counter’, on the high street or online (even very expensive ‘cosmeceuticals’), are all classified as ‘cosmetics’ along with, for example, nail varnish and make-up. Such items are not permitted to alter the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of the skin. They can legally contain only a very limited concentration of active ingredients and have no effect on the skin cells below the epidermis (the top layer of the skin, which includes dead skin cells). In contrast, medically prescribed products contain much greater concentrations of active ingredients. This enables them to penetrate below the epidermis and regulate the skin at a much deeper cellular level. It is this superior penetration, combined with medical strength active ingredients, that leads to effective results.

A selection of skin issues treated at BrightNewMe

There are a wide range of conditions which can be dramatically improved by use of a bespoke regime of medical grade products:

  • Freckles, dark patches and pigmentation
  • Sun damage, sun spots/ age spots
  • Acne, blemishes and large pores
  • Rosacea/redness
  • Mild scarring
  • Facial fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull texture or tone

Some conditions require specific physical treatment, such as skin lesions (which I treat with cryotherapy), or thread veins (which I treat with thermo-coagulation). We also offer skin microneedling (for fine lines, pigmentation and scarring) and Ultherapy (which tightens the skin).

Costs

I offer free initial consultations, with a view to determining whether or not I am able to help, and to outline your treatment options. Subsequent consultations are chargeable, at the rate of £50 for a 20 minute consultation, or £75 for a 30 minute consultation.  Follow-up consultations with Julie, our Senior Aesthetic Therapist, are £30 per 20 minutes.

Product costs

I recommend a wide range of products, which vary in price considerably, from a toner at £29.50 to a night repair serum at £128. Since the products are all registered as medicines they are only available to purchase following a consultation with myself (or, in some cases, with Julie, our Senior Aesthetic Therapist). Our products come directly from approved/licensed pharmacies, and are charged at their recommended retail prices.  We do not seek to compete with internet retailers, and caution patients with regards to buying of prescriptions on the internet where fake and counterfeit products are commonplace. If you would like to know the cost of any particular Obagi® and ZO® product please do not hesitate to phone or email us.

Further information

As existing patients are aware, I’m very keen on patient education. I encourage all to read my various skin care information pages, covering a wide range of subjects such as dealing with acne, the dangers of over-moisturising, and the need to use sun protection at all times.

Although we have a dedicated page for general client testimonials, below you will see a selection of comments from patients whose skin I have treated. Click on the extract to see the comments in full.

“Great for my problematic skin” – Dianne Quinn, Hale Barns, Nov 2017

I have had many treatments with Sarah and the team. All of which are amazing. I would highly recommend the hydra-facial and skin brightening treatments. My skin looked so fresh and youthful afterwards. I can’t wait for my next treatment. The team and clinic is very inviting, professional and the staff are very warm and informative of the products on offer. Bright New Me also provide me with a great skin care routine for my problematic skin, Sarah recommends the right product for my skin. I am loving the ZO skin care range.

“Very professional” – Ruth Langley, Sale, Nov 2017

Effective treatments. Very professional clinic. Dr Sarah explains everything thoroughly. Skin care products are excellent. Looking forward to my next visit.

“Improved my skin immensely” – Karen Dean, Timperley, March 2017

I have been visiting the clinic for about a year now as I suffer with rosacea . When I first met Sarah I liked her immediately – she listened to what I had to say and how the redness of my face makes me feel . I have been using the skin care range ZO. These products have helped improve my skin immensely.

“Loving my skin now I’m in my 50’s” – Fiona Wardle, Oct 2016

Loving my skin now I’m in my 50’s – and that is all down to Sarah’s excellent knowledge and advice. After so many years of acne I thought I had to live with breakouts, but that is no longer the case. Sarah’s knowledge is complemented by her lovely, caring manner. THANK YOU!

“Sarah completely transformed my skin” – Lucy Tattersall, London, Oct 2015

I came to visit Sarah after developing a sudden outbreak of adult acne during my final year at university. Sarah completely transformed my skin! From the moment I walked into Bright New Me, Sarah provided me with the most professional service and tailored my treatment to suit my skin and my needs. Her knowledge was exceptional and even when my skin didn’t improve initially she continued to support me and gave me lots of advice. My treatment worked after 18 weeks and now I love my skin! Sarah helped me to regain my confidence and made my skin even better than it was before the acne! I can’t thank her enough.
