Common complaints I hear of when meeting patients for the first time, whether new to medical aesthetics or new to me, is issues with their anti wrinkle dose and "wearing off too quickly". So it bears repeating - anti wrinkle treatments work by paralysing the nerves that send signals to the muscles in your face […]
The most seasoned business owners know firsthand that in order to succeed, you have to be willing to fail, sometimes many times over. Each time this happens, you pick yourself up and keep moving, learning from what worked, and what did not. Why do this to ourselves? While it seems like an exercise in self […]

Perhaps the biggest way to understand that medical aesthetics isn’t the same as hair, nails and beauty, is the fact that in order for us to carry out any procedures on you, it is a legal requirement to consent you for the procedure prior. While many, if not most people rush to sign the form […]
For many of us, our 30s can be a time of much change. Many of us may have children, with pregnancy and associated changes, breastfeeding, chronic sleep deprivation and wrangling little children.

Injectables are tricky to master, and anyone who tells you it’s easy, is often not telling the truth.

Just like with Medicine, there is usually a Dunning-Kruger […]

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)? PRP is blood plasma, or the golden liquid left behind after blood […]

Over time, these give rise to wrinkles- first these are dynamic; these […]
Question: I don’t need anti wrinkle or filler treatment! Do I? Dr Imaan: Before I began training in this field, I used to think similarly. When we are in our 20s and even early 30s, we are blessed with beautiful plump skin and provided we look after our skin with some basics, a skincare regime, a […]
Question: I look after my skin and it’s in fairly good condition but it’s starting to sag around my mouth and jaws, making me look sad and old. It upsets me to see this in the mirror. What can I do about it? Dr Imaan: It can be upsetting to look at ourselves in the […]
This lady has been my patient for a full year now. I first met her on November 26th last year. She’d never had any injectables but was keen to try some anti wrinkle treatment in her early 40s. This is with her full consent. This lady took a year almost to the day- dark sunken […]
