I specialise, and have over 18 years experience, in the use of lasers, Botox and many other injectable aesthetic procedures, having developed an interest in Cosmetic Dermatology during 1993. I joined MediZen as Clinical Director in 1999 as one of the very few medical practitioners in the UK to have undertaken clinical trials on the use of all 3 of the UK licensed brands of the world’s most popular injectable cosmetic treatment, Botulinum toxin.
Over the years I have sought and received personal training from worldwide experts in their field, including Dr Jean Carruthers, the doctor credited with first identifying the potential for Botox as an aesthetic treatment in Canada in the late 1980’s.
As I have grown in my expertise, I have in turn enjoyed training other practitioners, and have personally trained over 1,000 Doctors on injection technique in the use of Botox for cosmetic purposes and excessive sweating, and the use of dermal fillers for facial contouring.
This has led me to be recognised as an International Key Opinion Leader and I have been appointed a Local Country Ambassador by Allergan (the world’s largest cosmetic injectables supplier and the manufacturer of Botox). This means that I also travel widely, training and mentoring other medical practitioners on the safe and correct use of botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. Over the years I’ve been asked to help people who have received incorrect or poor treatment from other providers and am now recognised as an expert in managing complications of injectables, receiving referrals from other practitioners on the rare occasions things do not go as planned.
I am an active member of The British College of Aesthetic Medicine and have an international reputation for being an entertaining speaker, lecturing on the subject of aesthetic medicine in both the UK and abroad.
