2013 ‘Apprentice’ winner Dr Leah receives criticism for getting into aesthetic market!

July 22, 2013 |  by

This year’s Apprentice winner, newly qualified Doctor Leah Totton is said to be ‘putting patients at risk’ and ‘using Lord Sugar as a marketing tool’, according to a leading cosmetic surgeon. [read more]

Epsom Skin Clinics, Medical Director,  Dr Paul Steventon agrees – “In order to be a competent aesthetic doctor you need to have been practicing as a general medical doctor for a number of years. Considerable general medical experience in needed to operate solo in the aesthetic market.  Although Botox and Dermal Filler treatments are seen to be simple there are many factors that you need to take into account when administering these injections. Without extensive medical experience the risk of unforeseen problems increases significantly”

Radiesse offers a simple, safe and effective treatment to handle those tell-tale signs of ageing

More often than not, the focus of anti-ageing aesthetics is the face, but one of the most tell tale signs of ageing is the hands. The skin on the back of your hands is extremely thin so the loss of fat on any level shows quickly thus exposing our tendons, bones and veins which can make you seem older than you really are!

Another Novel Use For Britain’s Favourite Anti-wrinkle Treatment

June 25, 2013 |  by

Botox injections, normally used as anti-wrinkle treatments, are now being used to calm erratic heartbeats

Doctors are using Botox injections to treat patients with an irregular heartbeat. The toxin, which is commonly used as an anti-wrinkle treatment, is injected into fat pads surrounding the heart to paralyse the nerves triggering the faulty rhythm.

The treatment is being used for atrial fibrillation, which is the most common abnormality of heart rhythm, affecting up to half-a-million people in the UK. It occurs when the chambers of the heart don’t contract in the normal rhythmic way, usually as a result of a malfunction in the heart’s natural pacemaker. Faulty nerve signals are then sent to the heart muscle, causing it to contract at the wrong time.

The condition is more common with age. Ten per cent of people aged 80 and over are affected.

May 3, 2013 |  by

 

Well it sure took it’s time but it looks like summer is finally here!

Have you got a fabulous summer holiday booked? Do you dream of lying on the beach looking stunning in your swimsuit, bikini or swim shorts? Even if you’re not going away, with the sun finally shining it’s time to start thinking about unearthing those summer clothes that have been put away for far too long this year. Do you want to be able to get into those pretty summer dresses with ease or be able to fit in to your summer shorts or trousers?

Have you neglected yourself over these long winter months?

It’s time to take action.

You know the answer -change your diet and lifestyle-easy to say but many people find it difficult to put into practice. There’s so much conflicting information out there.

Helen Williams of Surrey Nutrition Clinic is our functional nutritionist based here at Epsom Skin Clinics and has helped many clients achieve their weight loss goals. She can guide you through the minefield of mixed messages about what to eat, when to eat it, what exercise is best, why sleep is so important in weight loss, how stress can make you fat.
To help you get that lean summer body Surrey Nutrition is offering all our clients a 10% discount during the month of May on their successful weight loss programmes: Metabolic Balance® and the SNC Fat Burner programme to help you shed that extra winter layer (and we don’t mean clothes here, we mean fat!) and start the summer feeling healthy and looking good.

Metabolic Balance® is a completely bespoke weight management programme developed in Germany over the last 25 years.

Did you notice Boy George’s amazing weight loss recently? He achieved this by following his personalised Metabolic Balance® programme. Take a look at his amazing transformation:

Each MB® plan is individually designed based on your blood chemistry, health assessment and your own personal goals. No two plans are the same, it’s your own “metabolic fingerprint”

The SNC Fat Burner is a more general plan but it still includes the support of a fully trained weight loss coach to guide you through the programme. After completing a specialised weight loss questionnaire we work with you on a 1:1 basis taking into account any health issues that may be contributing to your weight gain and individualising each programme to fit your own lifestyle and food preferences

Helen offers a free 15 minute telephone consult to discuss your options

Call her now on: 0208 226 5063 or e-mail: info@surreynutritionclinic.co.uk to arrange your appointment, there is no obligation to proceed.

Cosmetic Surgery Review – Sir Bruce Keogh

April 30, 2013 |  by

There has been a large amount of coverage in the press this year related to the regulation of cosmetic procedures in the UK which was led by the NHS medical director, Sir Bruce Keogh and a panel of trusted advisor’s.

All of the key points taken from the review have been welcomed by Epsom & Surbiton Skin Clinics. As  clinics that are already registered with the CQC (Care Quality Commission), we are already adhering to the highest standards and are ideally placed to continue to offer  you safe, Doctor led treatments

The report published this week calls for many changes in the way these procedures are performed including the reclassification of all Dermal Filler products. Sir Bruce Keogh was commissioned by the government following the recent PIP breast implant scandal and was asked to review all surgical and non-surgical procedures. They also looked into the people administering these treatments, the way clinics were advertising them and the advice and support patients were given.

The report sets out how it would like to see the aesthetic and cosmetic sector better regulated, practitioners better trained and the public having proper redress should things go wrong.

Sir Bruce Keogh wants to ensure that all practitioners are properly qualified for all the procedures that they administer and all of this would be over seen by a newly set up ombudsman to support the patients who have received poor treatment.
