Awesome for Autumn (Post-Holiday Skin)

With the weather making a sharp cloudy transition to autumn, it may be time to update your beauty regime. Those cocktails by the pool may have left your skin drier than you’d like.

Almost everyone has at least one scar on their body; they are the body’s natural way of healing. Certain areas of the body are more at risk of scarring, such as the chest, back, ear lobe and the shoulders.

The Private Clinic, Glasgow: Treatments

This might be our furthermost clinic, but it’s a cultural hub full of life, art and beautiful architecture that’s reminiscent of London, where our first clinic was established. Since Glasgow has so much to offer, we’ve selected a range of treatments that we hope will help alleviate the pressures of daily life (and the weather!),… Continue reading The Private Clinic, Glasgow: Treatments

Skincare in your sixties

According to scientists; sixty really is the new forty. Therefore, in your sexagenarian years, you’ve got absolutely no excuse not to look as vibrant, radiant and glowing as you did twenty years ago (but that’s enough of us getting all stern on you). Adapting your daily regime around your skin’s new needs might sound difficult,… Continue reading Skincare in your sixties

Skincare in your fifties

Coco Chanel once said “you can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life”.  It’s time to get irresistible…   By the time we approach 50 our skin has normally gone through a lot of changes from younger adult years, but that doesn’t have to be for the bad.… Continue reading Skincare in your fifties

Skincare in your forties

40 is the new 30 – there’s absolutely no disputing that.

When should I see a dermatologist?

There’s more to your skin than you’d think. As the largest organ of our body, it’s an average of around two square metres when stretched out…that’s a lot of skin. It’s not surprising then that so many of us have problems and oddities we want to sort out. We’ve all got little quirks and it’s virtually impossible to… Continue reading When should I see a dermatologist?

Skincare in your thirties

Aristotle once said “The body is at its best between the ages of thirty and thirty-five.” We see no reason why that mantra can’t extend to your skin…and why it has to stop at 35. After we hit our mid-twenties, the skin’s production of collagen starts to slow down at the same time as our reserves of the protein… Continue reading Skincare in your thirties

Skincare in your twenties

It’s never too early to start looking after your skin. And, while you might not feel ready to start thinking about getting older, your twenties are actually the best point to start taking skincare seriously. It can be a difficult time for some of us; caught halfway between skin that’s starting to show signs of soft… Continue reading Skincare in your twenties

Is technology ageing us quicker?

Tech neck is a term that’s been popping up in the media recently. It suggests our love of technology is causing us aesthetic problems. But is it actually real? And what can you do to reverse it?   Recent statistics suggest that the average 18-39 year old with three digital devices or more can look at a screen… Continue reading Is technology ageing us quicker?
