In minor surgery it is common place to use lignocaine with adrenaline as this helps minimise any bleeding during the surgery. Very rarely people can feel their heart race or feel a bit faint which passes in a few minutes. This used frequently by dentists so if you have not had a reaction when a having any tooth treatments then you are unlikely to have any issues. Agaiin this is why is it important to have a thorough medical consultation and any local anaesthetic injected in a medical setting.

Anaesthetic injections are also available without adrenaline and are used for surgery on the fingers and toes as well as for anyone who is sensitive to adrenaline. Most anaesthetics work within 1-2 minutes and last for 1-3 hours.

Anaesthetic creams such as EMLA are also available for less invasive skin treatments and provide a good numbing effect.

All our doctors will discuss your best options for you to ensure the most comfortable procedure possible.

I had a hydrafacial with Georgia and absolutely loved it. Not only was Georgia a lovely girl but performed one of the best hydrafacials I’ve had yet. She included my neck which not many places do and when I asked her to focus on my chin area, she payed extra attention there. Thanks Georgia!

I had HD Brows with Sienna and I have never had so many positive compliments before! She fixed my eyebrows from when my last therapist waxed off half of my hair and shaped them to make my eyes pop. She did such a good even my boyfriend noticed!

I have been visiting Cosmedics for 3 years for electrolysis. The clinic was recommended by a friend who continues with treatment there and I have recommended another friend who now attends regularly. Sienna in particular is skilful and pleasant, and I now only book appointments with her. Reception staff are very helpful and friendly. On one occasion I was asked to call urgently about my appointment and I think I spoke to the call centre who didn't know anything about the call. As I was away at the time I planned to ring Putney for clarification on my return, but, forgot which was annoying as when I went to my next appointment was told it was cancelled as Sienna was on leave. I complained at the time to reception staff and they said they would follow it up, and that wasn't the first time there had been problems with the call centre.
