Meet Our Team: Introducing Emily
As most of you know the Dr Tatiana Aesthetic Clinic has been expanding and our team is growing, so we thought it would be a great idea to introduce you to our fabulous team. This month we are going to start with our very talented nurse Emily….
Emily has always been firmly involved in the beauty world. After graduating with a degree in Media Make-up, she founded and ran her own business as a hair and make-up artist. Her career stretched across commercial commissions in TV, film and fashion, as well as private clients. Emily’s varied experience involved creating images and characters through the medium of make-up, hairstyles and prosthetics for a variety of briefs. Emily also held one-on-one and group classes, advising on current, up to date beauty regimes and application of make-up to enhance the individual through practical lessons.
Harnessing her natural desire to help people, Emily embarked on a career change and qualified as a children’s nurse in 2010. Her nursing training led to a position at the Great Ormond Street Hospital, one of the most revered children’s hospital in the world. Here she worked within the intensive care unit then went on to specialise in haematology and oncology.
Emily’s professional and compassionate nature has helped her put patients and clients at ease within both aspects of her career. She always strives for perfection and brings a distinct combination of creativity, practicality and compassion to the Dr Tatiana Aesthetic Clinic.
Emily, why do you love your job?
“I love that I get to combine both of my careers, the creativity and artistic process of being a make-up artist with my medical knowledge within nursing. It feels very natural to me to work closely with my patients, helping them achieve glowing healthy skin and the natural look they desire. It feels amazing passing on knowledge to my patients on how best to look after their skin.”
Skincare ingredient of the month: Glycolic Acid
We’re always asked what ingredients we look out for in skincare and our recommendation on products for certain skin types, and we love the thrill of getting our hands on beauty products which contain the most talked about ingredients. But what we love more is getting our hands on the products and discovering ourselves that they really really work.
This month the spotlight is on Alpha Hydroxy Acids (known as AHA’s, including glycolic, lactic, and citric amongst a few) derived from plant sugars (hence being commonly referred to as a ‘fruit acid’), Glycolic acid is a form of chemical exfoliator. It has the smallest molecules of all AHAs, enabling it to effectively penetrate the upper layers of the skin. Glycolic is effective at taking off the surface layers of dead skin, to reveal fresher, more luminous skin beneath! It is an excellent treatment for mature, sun-damaged skin, thanks to its ability to increase cell turnover and remove dull, dead surface cells. There is also substantial evidence that it can change the structure of the skin, thickening the dermis and stimulating collagen production. It is the holy grail for exfoliation, effectively removing the outermost layer of dead cells from the complexion, revealing brighter, fresher skin.
Treatment Focus: Décolletage Rejuvenation
New for Spring! The targeted Décolletage Rejuvenation treatment uses
REDERMALIZATION to smooth out lines and wrinkles as well as targeting sun spots and pigmentation. Redermalization is a course of injectable treatments that uses a combination of hyaluronic acid and succinct acid to increase collagen and elastin production, plumping the skin and restoring a youthful complexion. It is also excellent for treating pigmentation, acne scars, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
What does a Redermalization treatment involve ?
First, a numbing cream is applied before the procedure to avoid any discomfort.
The Xela Rederm is then injected into the skin using multiple tiny injections.
A WOW mask is then applied. For optimal results, 3-6 treatments are required, dependent on the skin quality, with 2-3 weeks between each session.
What occurs after the treatment ?
Directly after the treatment, there will be very small bumps where the product has been injected. These bumps disappear over a few hours once they are absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin. The result is plumper, firmer and more hydrated skin. Phone to book: 07718 219 145.
