“As a GP I saw a lot of patients with skin issues including acne, rosacea, pigmentation and scars. I saw the distress that they suffered and wanted to help them find a solution. I also had acne rosacea which was also affecting me. This unfortunately was not resolving with conventional treatments such as antibiotic creams or tablets.
I then heard about laser treatments, which were relatively new at the time and decided to look into this. I wanted to learn more about laser treatments and their applications and so I attended teaching hospitals in London to sit in the clinics to learn and observe. I was lucky enough to be advised to attend the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors (now the BCAM).
I was thrilled to be invited to the meeting at the BACD and heard about the array of non-surgical cosmetic treatments which really was all new to a traditional General Practitioner. I was really fascinated and interested, so was determined to learn more.
I attended other national training meetings and national conferences across the UK, often taking my husband who is a surgeon along with me. He one time exclaimed “it is amazing how much you can achieve with just a needle!”
My interest grew as I developed more knowledge and trained to be a practitioner administering injectables such as Botox and Fillers and various laser treatments.
From 2005 I started treating a small number of patients from a treatment room. But for me, this wasn’t enough. I wanted to offer an array of treatments to help more people and so decided to open a clinic. This did need my full-time attention and so I decided to leave General Practice.
I opened Health & Aesthetics in 2008. Not only have I been able to help thousands of patients over the numerous years of running Health & Aesthetics, but I have also fully treated my own acne rosacea. Although I could not have the appropriate laser treatment due to my skin type, I have been able to treat with cosmeceuticals and skin peels, leaving me with clear skin.
I am proud to work in the industry I do, and strive to maintain not just the highest standards, but also offer the latest treatments to my patients. I want all of my patients to walk into our clinic and feel safe and informed and walk out looking confident and natural.”
