Skin Consultation

Let’s talk skin.

Skin Consultation

A personalised assessment of your skin will be carried out. Dr. Ashraf will evaluate your skin type, analyse any skin concerns you may have, and discuss your lifestyle and skincare routine. She may then recommend a skincare routine and treatments that are best suited for your skin. Depending on your skin concerns, Dr. Ashraf may recommend additional treatments such as chemical peels, microneedling or skin boosters to improve the appearance and health of your skin.

Medical Grade Skincare

Clinically proven effective skincare products.

Medical Grade Skincare

Medical grade skincare refers to skincare products that are formulated with higher concentrations of active ingredients that have been clinically proven to effectively treat specific skin concerns. They have been subject to rigorous testing and are formulated to penetrate the skin at a deeper level and therefore deliver more powerful results.

Medical Grade Skincare FAQs
  • Medical-grade skincare products typically contain higher concentrations of active ingredients than over-the-counter (cosmeceutical) products, which lead to more effective results.
  • They are also formulated to penetrate deeper layers of the skin, which can improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.
  • They have been rigorously tested and therefore produce very reliable results with minimum side effects.

Anyone looking to improve the health and appearance of their skin can benefit from medical-grade skincare products. They are particularly helpful for those with specific skin concerns, such as acne, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation.

  • While medical-grade skincare products are only available through licensed medical professionals, a prescription is not always necessary.
  • Some products, such as prescription-strength retinoids or hydroquinone, may require a prescription from a healthcare provider.


Improve the overall skin appearance.


A Medifacial combines medical-grade skincare products and advanced facial techniques. It is a non-invasive and gentle procedure that aims to improve the overall appearance of the skin by providing hydration, exfoliation, and nourishment.

The treatment typically involves several steps, including cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration. The products used are more potent and effective than those used in a traditional spa facial, and they can be customised to address specific skin concerns, such as acne, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.

Medifacial FAQs

Anyone can benefit from a Medifacial, regardless of skin type or age. However, it may be especially beneficial for individuals with specific skin concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, or dryness.

The frequency of Medifacials depends on your individual skincare needs and goals. It is generally recommended to get a Medifacial every 4-6 weeks for best results.

No, Medifacials are not typically painful. Some people may experience mild discomfort during certain steps of the treatment, but this is generally minimal.

Most people experience no side effects after a Medifacial. However, some people may experience mild redness, sensitivity, or peeling after the treatment. These side effects typically resolve within a few days.

It is generally recommended to avoid wearing makeup immediately after a Medifacial to allow the skin to breathe and heal. However, if you must wear makeup, choose non-comedogenic and lightweight products.

The results of a Medifacial can last for several weeks to months, depending on the individual and the specific treatment. To maintain optimal results, it is recommended to get regular Medifacials and follow a good skincare routine.

Chemical Peels

Improve skin appearance and texture.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and peel off the top layer(s) of damaged or dead skin cells. They improve the appearance and texture of the skin by removing damaged skin cells and stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells. They can be used to address a variety of skin concerns, including acne, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation.

Chemical Peels FAQs
  • There are several different types of chemical peels, including superficial, medium, and deep peels.
  • Superficial peels are the mildest and are typically used to treat minor skin concerns, such as fine lines and uneven skin tone.
  • Medium and deep peels are more intensive and are used to treat more severe skin concerns, such as deep wrinkles and acne scarring.
  • During a chemical peel, a solution is applied to the skin and left on for a certain amount of time, depending on the type of peel.
  • Patients may experience a mild burning or stinging sensation during the procedure.
  • After the peel, the skin may be red and sensitive, and may peel or flake for several days to a week.
  • Good candidates for chemical peels are typically in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.
  • Chemical peels may not be suitable for those with certain skin conditions, such as eczema or rosacea, or for those with a history of keloid scarring.


Restore natural hydration and firmness.


Profhilo is an injectable treatment of purified hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring bodily substance that binds 10,000 times its weight in water within the skin. It improves the appearance of the skin by restoring its natural hydration and firmness. Profhilo is most commonly used on the face, but it can also be used on other areas of the body, such as the neck, arms, abdomen, knees, décolletage, and hands.

Profhilo FAQs

Profhilo is a type of injectable treatment that contains hyaluronic acid and stimulates collagen production.

Areas that can be treated with Profhilo include the arms, abdomen, and thighs.

An initial course of 2 treatments 4 weeks apart is needed to see the results. Results last 4-6months. Subsequent treatments can be singular.

While side effects are rare, patients may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection site.

Skin Boosters

Improve skin’s overall hydration, texture and elasticity.

Skin Boosters

Skin boosters involve injecting small amounts of hyaluronic acid into the skin to improve its overall hydration, texture, and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in the body and helps to maintain moisture levels in the skin. They are a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the skin and restore a more youthful, radiant complexion.

Skin Boosters' FAQs

Patients can typically see results from skin boosters a few days after the treatment.

Like any injectable treatment, there may be some mild side effects associated with skin boosters, such as redness, swelling, and bruising. However, these side effects are typically mild and usually resolve within a few days.

The number of skin booster treatments needed can vary depending on the individual and their specific skin concerns. We use Sunekos and Jalupro which have a patented combination of amino acids and hyaluronic acid. These have an initial regime of four sessions 1-2 weeks apart.

Skin boosters can be combined with other treatments, such as Botox or fillers, to achieve optimal results.


Stimulate the body’s natural healing response.

Radiofrequency Microneedling

Radiofrequency microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines two technologies: microneedling and radiofrequency energy. The procedure involves using a device with tiny needles that puncture the skin triggering the body’s natural healing response and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. At the same time radiofrequency energy is delivered into the deeper layers of the skin. This combination of technologies is more effective and stimulates collagen and elastin production, which can improve skin texture, tone, and firmness.

RF Microneedling FAQs

RF microneedling offers multiple benefits for facial rejuvenation. It can improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, minimise pore size, and improve overall skin tone and firmness. The treatment stimulates natural collagen production, resulting in a more youthful and revitalised complexion.

Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to minimise discomfort. During the treatment, most individuals experience a tolerable sensation of heat and slight pressure as the device is passed over the skin. The procedure is generally well-tolerated, and any discomfort is temporary.

The duration of an RF microneedling session depends on the size of the treatment area and the specific concerns being addressed. Typically, a session can range from 30 minutes to an hour.

The number of sessions required varies depending on individual factors such as skin condition and treatment goals. Generally, a series of four to six sessions spaced 1 month apart is recommended for optimal results. Your practitioner will evaluate your skin and provide a personalised treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Following the treatment, you may experience some redness, mild swelling, and minor pinpoint bleeding, similar to a sunburn-like effect. These effects typically resolve within a few days. Most people can resume their normal activities with minimal downtime.

Results vary among individuals, but many people notice improvements in skin texture and appearance within a few weeks after the initial session. Collagen remodeling continues over time, so optimal results may be visible several weeks to months after completing the recommended treatment series.
