‘Dr Hala has improved my skin so much. She is very receptive to individual needs, she always analyses your skin to provide the best treatment and she listens. I would thoroughly recommend.’ – Lucinda Cunningham
‘Over the last year many clients who have come to us for facial, body and aesthetic treatments – and, of course, Covid-19 tests – have asked for advice about how to boost their immune systems,’ recalls Dr Hala Mahfoud.
‘We always recommend Vitamin IV infusions, which are made up of individually tailored cocktails of minerals, amino acids, anti-oxidants, nutrients and even ozone. They have proved effective in keeping the immune response up to speed and combating fatigue and stress – I have a weekly session myself.’
Before founding her family-run clinic in 2017, Dr Hala worked as an NHS Consultant. Her initial vision was to deliver high quality care in a safe, comfortable environment and to bridge the gap between medicine and aesthetics. ‘Since opening we have expanded the therapies we offer, often in response to patient requests, and that has meant acquiring state-of-the-art medical technology,’ she says.
One of the first major investments was in a Femi-Lift laser, which stimulates collagen, the protein responsible for skin strength and elasticity. ’Post-birth, many ladies leak when they exercise, sneeze or cough,’ explains Dr Hala. ‘The Femi-Lift has become very popular; bit provides proven, non-surgical relief from stress urinary incontinence, alleviates vaginal dryness and pain during sex and enhances sensation.
‘Early on, we also secured two of the latest Alma lasers: the Harmony XL Pro liftsband refreshes skin and is ideal for healing scars, acne, vascular lesions and mole and tattoo removal, while the Soprano ICE Platinum laserbhas revolutionised hair removal – it is fast, pain-free and suitable for all skin types.’
A recent addition to the range of treatments has been micro-needling combined with Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, which is based on the body’s natural ability to regenerate tissue. ‘Micro-needling harnesses a patient’s own system to rejuvenate skin, remove fine lines and blemishes, diminish scarring and stimulate hair growth,’ says Dr Hala. ‘That effect is complemented by PRP. Blood is centrifuged to leave a platelet-rich solution which is topically applied or injected back into targeted areas, so starting the healing response and new collagen production, and resulting in healthier, firmer skin.’
Most excitingly, last year Dr Hala launched her own Skincare Collection (available via the website and at the clinic). All of the formulations have a peak concentration of active ingredients and the Collection includes products that combat hyper-pigmentation, rosacea and acne, restore elasticity to dehydrated skin, an eye serum to reduce wrinkles and dark circles, a lip plumper and a lightweight sunscreen.’
Warm and welcoming, Dr Hala epitomises the approach of her friendly, professional team. ‘‘No two patients are the same,’ she smiles. ‘We get to know each one and, with the scope of our facilities, we can devise a bespoke approach that fits their needs. We’re proud of our work and we want to achieve the best outcome every time.’
