I have been a qualified dental surgeon for 25 years and carrying out medical aesthetic treatments for the past 15 years. During this time, I have completed 3 master’s degrees (MClinDent Pros, MSc Aesthetic Medicine, and MSc Dermatology) and worked as a key opinion leader for BTi-Biotechnology, Croma Pharma, and now Neauvia. I have also developed treatment protocols for platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments in the treatment of hair loss, skin ageing and damage, and steroid atrophy, publishing papers on this and successfully teaching the techniques to other health care professionals who have demonstrated phenomenal results.
I am passionate about patient safety and regulation in aesthetics and truly believe that these treatments should only be performed by regulated health care professionals after proven appropriate training pathways. My patients can be safe in the knowledge that not only have I completed above and beyond in my training with my master’s level education, but I strive to be as safe as I possibly can. This involves treatment in a CQC registered clinic, access to emergency kits and drugs (which as a dentist I can prescribe and stock at all times), and the knowledge and skills to use them. I also employ strict aseptic protocols in my treatments as well as proven safe techniques, such as the use of cannula with dermal fillers in high-risk areas and as standard an ultrasound device which allows me to map an individual’s anatomy to target treatments safely to the areas needed. Safety is also ensured through the use of premium products only, with proven clinical safety data sourced through official channels. Therefore, the product supply chain is guaranteed and you can be assured that genuine products are being used.
I belong to a group of like-minded healthcare professionals, pushing for regulation in this sector and believe that these are medical and NOT beauty treatments.
For me personally, treatments are about working with individuals, understanding their wants and needs, and providing bespoke, tailored treatments based on this to enhance what mother nature has already bestowed upon my patients. I never use the term beauty in association with my treatments as it means so many different things to different people and I truly believe we are indeed all beautiful. But we are also all unique and individual. Instead, I work to improve the health of my patients (which may have a cosmetic benefit) and in turn improve their confidence. This message is so important, especially as a mum to a teenage daughter, I want everyone to realise how awesome individuality is and to embrace who we are and what nature has given us.
I look forward to seeing you at The Castle Clinic soon!
For now, take care
