Cosmeceuticals combine the benefits of cosmetics with pharmaceuticals to offer you medical grade skin care products that can help to tackle issues such as acne, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, age spots, redness, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Cosmeceuticals also give you a skincare regime to use at home that can help revitalise your complexion, improve dry or oily skin, and fight the signs of aging.
We currently use products from the Dr. Obagi and ZO® cosmeceutical ranges. These products cover every aspect of skincare, including a number of specific programs for problems such as acne and anti-aging – and are available in a choice of formulations. This means that we can make sure that you go home with the products that will best complement and enhance your skin.
Different cosmeceuticals are right for different skin types and issues, so it’s important to have a proper skin analysis and seek recommendations for an experienced cosmetic doctor who can advise you on the best products for your needs.
The ZO® Skin Health cosmeceuticals range provides a home-care skincare regime that can be used whether or not you decide to have an in-office aesthetic procedure. This range maximises the effectiveness of vitamin A (retinol) to reduce the signs of ageing by penetrating your skin and stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. The ZO® Skin Health range can also protect your skin from pollution and the environment and is clinically proven to create and maintain healthy skin. The benefits of these products are that they can increase your skin thickness, enhance cellular function, improve your circulation and minimise inflammation. There are dedicated skincare programmes for acne treatment and prevention, and anti-ageing , as well as products for cleansing, exfoliation, skin defence and repair, renewal and recovery, and sun protection. ZO® Medical is a skincare range designed to provide more focused treatment for pigmentation disorders, sun damage, oily skin, and inflammatory disorders.
Obagi cosmeceuticals is a world-leading brand of prescription skincare systems. Within each system, there are all the products you need to carry out your daily skincare regime and supercharge the health and appearance of your skin. Obagi gives an added degree of flexibility because there are systems for different skin types and skin problems. Obagi also provides a range of targeted solutions. For example, if you want to improve the fine lines and wrinkles in the décolletage area or you want to specifically refresh and rejuvenate the delicate skin around your eyes, we can recommend carefully formulated products that focus on those areas.
Dr. Victoria Gauba is a qualified dermatologist, as well as an experienced cosmetic medical doctor, so she has an incredibly detailed understanding of what healthy skin looks like. Dr. Gauba passionately believes that skin is the largest organ of the human body but one that is woefully neglected sometimes. Her psychology qualifications and many years of aesthetic experience have also shown her how the health of your skin can impact on your confidence and self-esteem. Therefore, Dr. Gauba’s intention is to recommend the products that she feels will make the biggest and most positive difference to your skin long-term. As a medical doctor, Dr. Gauba is able to prescribe products that are not available on the high street.

Understanding the contours and shape of your face and body allows us to identify the most appropriate treatment for you.
Our treatments are often a blend of technologically advanced procedures and more traditional approaches while we give the best patient care from the moment you come in for a consultation.
