Successful Ageing

Successful ageing is about our general well-being in older age – mentally, physically and also socially. I believe that looking after ourselves in this way is just as important as looking after our skin. Here are my top 7 tips for successful ageing- 1. Have a positive attitude in life. 2. Exercise regularly. 3. Learn a new skill. 4. Find ways to reduce the stress in your life. 5. Eat healthily. Did yesterday’s meals fit into this food pyramid? 6. Seek & give social support. 7. Keep up to date with the modern world – adapt, be current and relevant […]

Top Myths About Injectables

I regularly have consultations with patients who are new to the world of injectables, and it becomes apparent that there are a number of generally held misconceptions. In this post I thought I would address the myths most commonly believed. 1. Myth: Botox and fillers work the same way. Not so – Botox (or botulinum toxin A to give it its full name) is a muscle-relaxant, weakening those specific muscles which cause frown lines to appear. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, contain a gel-like substance, which sits underneath the skin, to either add volume to the area or ‘fill’ […]

Insights from the Aesthetic world, London September 2016

This last month saw two hugely important events in the aesthetic calendar for UK practitioners, and I am delighted to say that I was present for both. The first was hosted by Allergan Medical Institute, marking the ten-year anniversary of Botox® receiving its license in the UK for the treatment of frown lines. The conference was led by Dr Arthur Swift (pictured left), a pioneering and world renowned plastic surgeon from Canada.  His lecture was inspiring, focussing on the use of “phi” (also known as the golden ratio) when assessing facial proportions. This ratio (1:1.6) was first identified by Leonardo […]

Allergan’s 2016 Visionary Masterclass

I was honoured and delighted to be invited by Allergan to attend their Aesthetics Masterclass in London at the end of February. This two day event is led by one of the world’s preeminent experts in the field of non-surgical cosmetic procedures, Brazilian plastic surgeon Mauricio de Maio. This is the fourth consecutive year that I have attended the event which, for me, is the highlight of the aesthetic calendar. Much of the programme was spent on technical matters, including refinements to the ‘The Eight Point Lift‘, a ground-breaking technique developed by Mauricio and one which I have used myself […]

Wary of botox? Read on….

A significant proportion of my patients are new to Botox, and invariably they have been thinking about seeking treatment for quite some time. The overriding reason given for their hesitation is often anxiety – partly of the injections, but more so the thought of looking ‘obvious’, or ‘frozen’, or downright odd. Given what we have all seen in the media, with overdone, plastic-looking celebrities, these concerns are perfectly understandable. In this blog I shall address these concerns, and explain my approach to ensure that such fears prove unfounded. Possibly the easiest anxiety to overcome is that of the injections themselves. […]
