Why should you come to SMC for your cosmetic treatments?

Your treatments will be performed personally by a fully qualified and experienced Doctor or Nurse Practitioner. You will receive a personal consultation from one of the partners, who will give you as much time as you need to discuss your wishes, and to offer advice, and answer any questions fully. You are the most important person in our clinic!

Can I go back to work after my treatment?

You can return to work after most of the treatments offered. Botox® is frequently administered during a working day. Some treatments such as Laser/IPL may be better performed at the end of a working day, but any potential 'downtime' will be fully explained to you before any treatment is undertaken.

What happens after my treatment?

The aftercare for each treatment will be fully discussed with you by your practitioner. We want you to be completely happy with your treatment. We will routinely take digital 'before' pictures for your records and invite you to a two week review appointment after treatment which is free of charge. This will enable us to adjust the treatment if necessary and take 'after' photos.
