In 2012 she helped set up a Private Aesthetic Clinic, Modality Medical Spa in Birmingham whilst also providing NHS Dermatology there. The main Cosmeceutical at that clinic was ZO Skin Health which she has used since 2013.
She is a Member of the British Medical Laser Association and Primary Care Dermatology Society and is an avid promoter of Skin Awareness and Scarring. Her particular interest lies in the treatment of Hyper-pigmentation, Melasma, Scarring and Acne.
Whilst keeping up to date with General Practice and Overall Health and Anti-aging Medicine her real passion lies in Medical Dermatology pulling together her vast experience in NHS and Private Dermatology for all round patient management. She is a firm believer in evidence based skin care and the benefits of Retinoid acid and Retinol having used this in her patients extensively for over 12 years. No client goes away without some form of Retinol, Vitamin C and Sun screen and detailed instruction in application and understanding on skin health.
She is now delighted to be a Faculty Member of ZO Skin Health Academy and UK Trainer for ZO and has trained delegates in UK & Ireland. She firmly advocates Dr Zein Obagi’s philosophy about the Circle of Skin Health with a Cycle of Correction, Maintenance and Prevention and the idea of Dermal Stabilisation and Stimulation.
