Frequently Asked Questions

We have identified an number of frequently asked questions that many of our patients pose when they first phone us up for an initial consultation.

We hope they will help you when making your decision to phone. If we haven’t answered your question here we would love to hear from you.

Before we offer treatments to new patients, we undertake a thorough consultation to fully understand your wishes, assess your medical history and work out with you, which treatments will best help us achieve those wishes. It is your opportunity to ask as many questions as you want. We are very honest and will tell you if we do not think certain treatments are right for you and we may suggest alternatives, such as surgery, which will achieve a better result.

The consultation costs £50. If you choose to go ahead with treatments, £50 will be deducted from the cost of your first treatment.

For consultations regarding lip fillers – there is now a £25 deposit required to secure your appointment. We have bought this in due to a high number of prospective patients not attending their appointments without cancelling them.
