Treatments with Dr Ross Perry

Cosmedics Harley Street

Columnist Liz Jones is best known for her weekly diary in the Mail on Sunday’s You Magazine. 

This week’s feature included a trip to Cosmedics Skin Clinics in Harley Street, to visit Dr Ross Perry for a series of skin treatments in advance of a big date.

She writes:

“In which I call the Botox doctor

“I drove to Harley Street, to the Cosmedics** clinic, to meet Dr Ross Perry. On the fifth anniversary of my facelift, and after the worst five years of my life, I am here to be assessed. Dr Perry, the sort of man who oozes sortedness, the sort of man I’m sure who takes skiing holidays, switches on a bright overhead light and examines my face.

‘How old are you?’

“he asks, peering closely. I can’t tell him that. I shave off ten years. Let’s see if the previous surgeon’s handiwork was worth it.

‘Your jowl is very good, very tight, and your cheeks are full.’

“he says. That’s the nicest thing a man has said to me since David said he loved me ‘heart and soul’.


“I knew there was a but.

‘I will put some Botox in your forehead, around the side of your eyes and between your brows. And a little filler on one side of your mouth, as it’s drooping a little.’

“(Can you blame it?)

“For good measure, he removes a tiny bump on my forehead, some patches of discoloration and the mole on the end of my nose.

“He tells me not to get my face wet for a couple of days. I’m reminded of when I had collagen in my lips in the spa atop Harrods, in the mid-90s, and the practitioner told me, as she unsnapped her latex gloves after what was probably the most painful half hour of my life, that I must not snog for at least three days. I’d scoffed, then. She thinks I have a boyfriend! I will never again kiss a man, I told her. But I suppose none of us knows what’s around the corner. A wedding. A (fairly) sane man who says he loves me heart and soul.

“I left the clinic feeling slightly battered, but fit to face the world***. I’m going to try again. With everything. I’m broken, but not completely bowed.”
