A new non-surgical cosmetic clinic has opened at Spire Regency Hospital in Macclesfield supporting a campaign calling for non-medics to be banned from administering Botox.
Renew Medical Aesthetics will reassure patients undergoing non-surgical cosmetic treatments in an industry which has become flooded with High Street beauty salons offering treatments like Botox and dermal fillers with a lack of or very limited training.
Recently the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) called for a ban on all non-medics, and in particular beauticians, from administering the potent injection due to the high risks involved. NHS medical director Sir Bruce Keogh is also due to publish his findings from a review of the cosmetic procedures industry in March. The review was sparked by the scandal involving faulty PIP breast implants which came to light in January 2012.
Verlie Brazel, Spire Regency hospital director, said: “We’ve witnessed a huge demand for treatments such as Botox, thread vein removal and mesotherapy but we are aware of changes in the cosmetic industry and new regulations being introduced. “We took the decision to link up with a highly credible, medically trained cosmetic team to provide a range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments in a safe and sterile environment and we are delighted with the outcome.
”Renew Medical Aesthetics is owned and run by managing director Justin Saynor and his partner, Kelly Wilson, who is a qualified nurse turned cosmetic procedure specialist with 10 years’ experience working in the aesthetics field. Kelly, who grew up in Congleton and now lives in Bollington, agrees with stricter regulation of the Botox industry and is passionate about what Renew at Spire can achieve.
Kelly is driven by a desire to raise awareness of the current problems in the industry, whilst providing an expert, honest service which has the power to deliver life-changing benefits for customers. The 33-year-old mum-of-one said: “As cosmetic procedures have become more commonplace, the market has literally exploded, with the result that potential clients have to wade their way through a mire of beauty myths and unqualified practitioners before they can reach the real truth.
“I’ve been a nurse all my working life, specialising in paediatrics and then moving onto cosmetic surgery. It’s not a bandwagon I’ve suddenly jumped on and I feel very strongly that people need to be empowered with the information to make educated choices which will achieve the goals they are looking for. ”Services available at the Renew at Spire clinic include Botox, dermal fillers, lip enhancement, skin peels, thread vein removal, non-surgical liposuction and cosmetic teeth whitening.
Kelly added: “Justin and I are delighted to be on board with Spire Regency – a long-established and well respected private healthcare provider. “It is the perfect partnership and really complements our commitment to providing a professional service which people can trust. “Our main aim is delivering natural-looking results following detailed consultations with clients, during which the most appropriate treatment is decided upon and the results each individual can expect are discussed. “Unfortunately cosmetic surgery has become a minefield. There are so many myths and sadly some unscrupulous practitioners; I want to explode those myths and show that done subtly non-invasive cosmetic surgery will leave you looking refreshed and relaxed and not frozen in time.
“The secret is to find the right practitioner. Someone qualified, who fully understands what the client wants to achieve, and will talk through all the options. We need people to know what is realistic and what isn’t and what a fair cost is and equally what is not. “We are not miracle workers, but if a client can look in the mirror and be happier with what they see, then that is a job well done.”
