As a consultant dermatologist, what inspired you to move into aesthetics and open the Lumiere Clinic?
I acquired experience in cosmetic dermatology during my training in the UK, US and Australia. I enjoy combining both my aesthetic and specialist dermatology knowledge to ensure that patients achieve the best possible results.
Why did you decide to introduce the Lynton 3JUVE into your skin clinic?
We needed to invest in one piece of equipment with multiple treatment options, so a three-in-one device worked well as we have such a wide range of different skin conditions coming into the clinic.
Are you happy with the clinical results you have gained with your Lynton equipment?
We’re delighted with the results we have achieved with the 3JUVE, but, more importantly, so are our patients. We have treated a large volume of rosacea patients using the Rebright IPL application, and even after one treatment, there is significant clearance. We also see a large volume of patients who suffer from acne scarring, so the Resurface fractional laser works perfectly in helping improve the texture and appearance of their skin. From using other IPL and laser devices in the past, I can say that the Lynton IPL is much stronger, helping us see faster results.
The 3JUVE treatment concept works by using varying proportions of the three technologies, dependent on the needs of the client; is this something you do?
We like to treat every patient on an individual basis, so the 3JUVE is sometimes used to just treat their particular concern. For a patient looking for overall skin rejuvenation, we may tailor a 3JUVE treatment based on what they require most.
The 3JUVE complements other treatments we offer, allowing me to focus on medical treatments then pass a patient on to to one of my laser practitioners to finish with a 3JUVE regime.
What advice would you give to someone considering investing in a piece of aesthetic equipment?
Pick a company that is well established and has strong accreditations. I chose Lynton because their technology is medically certified and they have won awards in recent years for the quality of their equipment and customer service. I also wanted to work with a UK-based manufacturer that could offer a high level of technical service and quick response times. This gives me the peace of mind that any problems could be solved quickly without me cancelling patients.
