Dr Kathy reveals her top three winter treatments

Winter has well and truly arrived. While I personally could do without these cooler months, they also provide a great opportunity to get slimmer, lifted and glowing in preparation for summer’s return.


1. Laser and light based treatments

Winter is the perfect time for all laser and light based treatments, as it’s easier to avoid the sun post-treatment. Many skin imperfections can be treated with laser and light therapy including pigmentation, redness and uneven skin texture. By investing in a laser or light-based treatment (or both) in the winter months, your skin will be glowing by summer time.

Our advanced laser and light-based therapies:

  • Repair pigmentation, rosacea and acne
  • Reduce scarring and wrinkles
  • Improve skin texture and tone

2. CoolSculpting®

Take freezing to a new level this winter and freeze away unwanted fat with CoolSculpting®. Typical areas to treat include the love handles, abdomen, thighs, arms, upper back and chin. Results are gradual and long lasting with best results occurring after two to three months, just in time for the warmer weather.

  • Freezes away unwanted fat
  • Achieve a more contoured body shape
  • Ideal for people who have small areas of fat that won’t budge through diet or exercise

3. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a great treatment all year round. A client can achieve so much with dermal fillers when the treatment is performed by an experienced medical injector. Dermal fillers can improve volume loss in the temples, tear troughs and cheeks, as well as lift the jowl area and improve the jawline. Results are completely natural and restore a more youthful appearance. Ageing can give the face a tired or sad appearance, which is a common concern with many clients, using dermal fillers to remove these concerns and restore a client’s confidence is a very rewarding experience.
