Who We Are
I co-founded City Skin Clinic with my Kiwi partner, to improve the quality of skincare and beauty treatments available in London. We are both passionate about skin and wanted to promote a personalised and evidence-based approach to beauty. Through our boutique aesthetic skin clinic in London, we have been able to raise the quality of aesthetic procedures available in the capital. In addition, we were also able to provide better education about aesthetic and skincare treatments online. We hope this will enable visitors to our website to decide if treatments are suitable for them. More importantly, also when they are not.
What We Do
At City Skin Clinic we use our website and blog to discuss safe and effective ways to care for your skin. We also encourage all our visitors to take an integrated approach to skincare and beauty. Most importantly, we want to celebrate a more diverse definition of beauty. This is reflected in our choice of models and blogging topics. We're really proud that this is also true of our patients who represent different genders, ethnicities and ages. With this emphasis on health and inclusivity we provide a more natural-looking and personalised approach to beauty.
As a medical doctor, I believe that the best results are achieved when the patient is involved in decision-making. Hence I ensure treatments are always tailored to each of my patients. I am also a huge advocate of taking care of my patients through their whole aesthetic journey. That's why I offer tailored advise on general skincare and free follow-ups to check their progress.
My passion for integrating health and beauty comes from my background as an academic and medical doctor as well as my life-long interest in a wider and more inclusive definition of beauty. I studied Medicine at Imperial College London and completed core surgical training in London. I was also one of the youngest people to gain membership to the Royal College of Surgeons. In addition to skin health and aesthetics, my interest is in facial reconstruction and academic surgery. This led me to undertake a PhD in regenerative medicine to improve treatments for children born with facial deformities.
At City Skin Clinic, we want to help patients achieve best results that also look natural through creating personalised treatment plans and expert doctor-led care. In order to increase awareness about safe effective beauty treatments and promote healthy skin, I have put together regular blog posts with my team on everything you need to know to achieve great looking healthy skin.
