Should the doctor who has seen you previously not be available, don’t worry. All doctors use the same methodology perfected by Dr Ross Perry.
Your detailed notes will enable our other doctors to ensure the best reproducible results.

At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, we believe in patient choice and will always accommodate this to ensure the patient gets the best cosmetic outcome that agrees with their personal wishlist.
Often some anti-ageing treatments work better in some areas than others. However Facial Fillers, chemical peels, laser or Dermaroller are just a few other options that can be used instead. We offer a host of advanced anti-ageing treatments.
We can achieve surprisingly natural results and patients are more likely to be told “You are looking well” rather than “You’ve had BOTOX®”.
Our specialists will adjust the dose according to both the depth of the lines or rhytids and what you and we feel will work the best for you to look younger.
At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, treatments are carried out by fully qualified doctors who are trained and experienced in cosmetic treatments.
We always recommend patients not to opt for cheaper providers where treatments are not carried out by the appropriate professionals. We still see lots of problems from poor practice that we can’t always fix.
Yes, there are 2 types of botulinum toxin that are approved for use in humans – type A and type B.
Botulinum toxin A is approved for cosmetic use and botulinum toxin B is used medically for different types of muscle diseases.
The most common brand names for botulinum toxin type A are BOTOX®, Vistabel, Azzalure and Dysport.
Type B botulinum toxin brand names include Myobloc®/NeuroBloc®. These can occasionally be used if patients develop a resistance to the type A formula, which is estimated at 1 in 10,000.
This is where a lower dose of BOTOX® is given to enable more expression but still a youthful look. It is very common with some celebrities but does not last as long. As long as BOTOX® is given properly there is no need for this approach. At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, our techniques are both long-lasting and subtle.
BOTOX® is primarily used for the upper third of the face so finding complementary treatments for the middle and lower parts of the face is then a concern for patients who don’t want their forehead to look 10 years younger than their cheeks and jowls.
The answer is to try some of the other cosmetic procedures such as dermal fillers, laser skin tightening and dermaroller microneedling which works to boost collagen.

- BOTOX® was approved by the FDA in America to be administered for glabella (frown lines) after years of rigorous drug trials. It has been used medically for over 40 years with an incredibly safe drug profile.
Its safety results are due the fact that it acts only on muscles or sweat glands and remains active locally rather than entering other areas of the body.
BOTOX® is also now used for a range of other medical conditions such as migraines, eye and bladder problems and has a proven safety record when treatments are done by experienced doctors.
