The Claremont Aesthetic Medicine Clinic is run by Dr Richard Pool (M.B.B.S. D.R.C.O.G.).
He qualified from Charing Cross Hospital, London in 1984 and has been working as a local General Practitioner for over 30 years with particular skill in laser hair removal and beauty. His background is in General Practice but also has an interest in Dermatology having spent some time in the Melanoma Unit in Sydney Hospital. He also has several years of experience in the world of Laser Hair Removal, Beauty and Sports Medicine, the latter so especially with having acted as medical officer to Woking Football Club since 1991. He has developed a specialised interest in the field of Cosmetic Medicine and has established the Claremont Aesthetic Medicine Clinic in Woking.
The clinic uses the very latest advances in the field of Aesthetic Medicine and specialises in non-surgical cosmetic, beauty procedures, botox and Fillers. There are a variety of treatments available and include BOTOX®, Restylane™, Juvederm Ultra™, Juvedern Voluma™,. Volift™, Volbella™, Sculptra. Chemical Peels and Micro-needling are also available.
This is a treatment which relaxes the muscles which cause facial lines and wrinkles and is available from our BOTOX® clinic. It is particularly effective in treating the deep frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet lines. Small amounts of BOTOX® are injected into these areas, resulting in relaxation of these muscles, giving the face a much more relaxed appearance. There are many different muscles within the face and BOTOX® is only administered to the muscles that are in the problem area, therefore you will still be able to produce many facial expressions after treatment.
BOTOX® can also be used to reduce localised sweating. Studies have shown that this treatment can be used in hyperhidrosis of the face, palms, the soles of the feet and underarms (axillae) all available at our clinics
Juvederm VOLUMA with Lidocaine is a clinically proven volumising treatment which is carefully injected to replenish lost volume to give a gentle lifting effect, that can reduce facial sagging.
Beneath the skin’s surface, the lower layers gradually lose supporting tissue and volume which causes it to sag under gravity. This process can visibly change the shape and profile of the face, particularly the chin and cheeks.
Juvederm VOLUMA has the capacity to restore deep volume loss in the cheek, chin and other areas. It delivers the same hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid but in a smooth, long lasting formulation that works more deeply.
The combination of Lidocaine makes the treatment experience and the time afterwards more comfortable. Results can be seen within 30 minutes and can last up to 18 months.
Other products in the range include Volift and Volbella which are generally used for more superficial lines and wrinkles..
Sculptra is a poly lactic acid which stimulates collagen production within the deep dermis of the skin. Rebuilt collagen strands help to restore facial volume. It can also be used in people suffering from facial fat loss (lipodystrophy). The number of injection appointments and the number of injections on each visit, vary from person to person, but on average three appointments are needed at 6-8 week intervals. The effects of these treatment can last for up to 3 years.
BOTOX® is a treatment given by injection into the skin and is available from our Clinic in Surrey. It is indicated for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis. When small doses are injected into the skin, BOTOX® blocks the actions of the nerves that supply the eccrine glands; this prevents the glands from producing sweat. BOTOX® blocks the nerve endings for several weeks until new nerve endings grow to replace them. This means that the effects of the treatment lasts for several months but eventually they will wear off. Top ups available from our BOTOX® Clinic in Surrey
The effects of the treatment are usually noticed within a week and can last for up to 12 months. In a clinical trial, sweat production was reduced by 83% one week after treatment and furthermore, sweating was reduced by at least half in 95% of patients.
Collagen plays a vital role in the appearance of your skin and helps to preserve its firmness, elasticity and youthful appearance.
Skinade is the only liquid food supplement recommended by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons. It contains a unique blend of hydrolysed marine collagen (7000mg), calcium ascorbate, MSM, B vitamin complex, organic flax seed and L-Lysine. These active ingredients are essential for your skin’s hydration, radiance, elasticity and to increase the production of collagen in your skin.
Skinade is precisely formulated to be easily absorbed by your body. Every year from our early to mid- twenties we loss nearly 1.5% of the collagen in our skin, which decreases the skins supporting structure and elasticity. Thinning and sagging skin leads to fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin needling is a safe and increasingly popular skin renewal technique that helps restore a healthy youthful appearance to the skin. It produces similar results to that of lasers and deep chemical peels, but is much less invasive and does not require the removal of the skin surface. As a result, healing time is shorter and there is no post-treatment sensitivity to UV light. Skin needling is suitable for all skin types and can address the fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and neck.
These are a range of cosmeceutical products that provide skin treatments, as opposed to just skin care. This incorporates a huge range of items to treat a wide range of skin conditions, from ageing (wrinkles and sun damage) and discolouration to common skin problems like coarse texture, acne and rosacea.
