Posted on April 26, 2017

Episode 10 of Don't tell the Doctor saw Kyri get treatment for his Dissecting Cellulitis.

A bit of West London Living….

Posted on April 20, 2017

It was great to meet Clare at the clinic recently. She came to see me for a Botox treatment and after our chat and treatment itself, this is some of what she had to say: "He did something incredibly clever. By avoiding the muscles that lift the inner part of the brow, and applying extra product to the frown-furrow muscle between the brows; thus paralysing the muscle that encourages the thing I dislike, he totally avoided this. He really listened to what I meant, something quite rare with doctors of his calibre, and after thinking carefully and asking me to raise my eyebrows and scrunch my face, he marked where he’d shoot and where he’d avoid. By leaving the muscles in the lower...

Posted on January 7, 2017

Dry January is the brainchild of Emily Robinson. Emily signed up for a half marathon in 2011 and to help her training go further she gave up alcohol for one month.

Are you following this skincare advice?

Posted on August 24, 2016

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) states that by far the most beneficial, age-busting product available is SUNSCREEN. Without a daily skin regime that includes copious amounts of sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) on all sun-exposed skin, no other anti-ageing products matter.   While sunscreen prevents damage, other products can fight the wrinkles, sagging and brown spots that ageing skin may already have. Some research-proven ingredients to look for include:   Retinol Skin care professionals consider this form of Vitamin A the gold standard of effective topical treatments. Also available as prescription strength Retin-A, retinol is an ingredient in many over-the-counter...

Antibiotics and Acne – always good?

Posted on July 11, 2016

A recent study by the British Association of Dermatologists has highlighted that acne patients are being asked to take antibiotics for excessive periods of time before being referred to a specialist. "oral antibiotics, which are routinely prescribed for acne, are being used for durations that exceed recommendations, despite concerns about antibiotic resistance. Dr Alison Layton and the dermatology team at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust, say that reliance on oral antibiotics beyond the recommended duration is harmful for two key reasons. The practice could cause the emergence of antibiotic-resistant Propionibacterium acnes, the bacterium implicated in acne, making acne harder...

Sharron Davies, Botox and You.

Posted on April 13, 2016

After 12 years in the Medical Cosmetic industry I have met countless people who have either had, considered having or denied having cosmetic treatment of some sort.  When I first started to practice admitting to Botox, fillers or lifts of any kind was a real 'no-go', particularly if you were in the limelight. The real value of celebrity endorsement. At my clinic I fully respect and understand my patients needs for discretion, this should be the approach for all medical treatment, cosmetic or not. That said, I am always so pleased when a public figure is bold enough to be honest about their treatment. Why? Is it because I think it is a matter of public interest? Certainly not. "It is because...
