    If you’re contemplating any sort of cosmetics treatment, it’s vital you find a fully qualified expert you can trust. Shockingly, there is virtually no regulation of the cosmetics industry, so results can vary widely depending on who carries out the treatment, what skills and experience they have, and what methods they use.

    Here at YourGP, all cosmetic treatments are carried out by highly trained medical professionals, each of whom is strictly regulated by the General Medical Council, so you can be confident of a safe experience. You can read about our call for tighter cosmetic regulation here.

    As with all our appointments, we offer ample time to allow for an in-depth discussion of what is involved in each cosmetic treatment, including any potential side-effects, and any aftercare advice.

    Cosmetic treatments at YourGP

    • Anti-wrinkle treatment: One of our most popular choices for dealing with fine lines and wrinkles, this treatment works by relaxing the muscles, causing the overlying skin to become smooth, resulting in a more youthful appearance. It’s ideal for targeting deep creases between the eyebrows, frown lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The effects last for 3-6 months, depending on the depth of your contours.
    • Dermal fillers: This treatment uses a natural, biodegradable gel that works within the layers of your skin to restore facial volume, recreating the round contours, high cheekbones and defined jawline that age and gravity take away. It’s ideal for targeting nose to mouth grooves, frown furrows, sunken cheeks and sagging jowls.
    • Hyperhidrosis treatment: Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can have a devastating effect on a person’s confidence. This treatment is ideal for targeting underarms, hands and feet.

    I was warmly greeted by staff with genuine smiles. The staff made me feel very comfortable and engaged me in conversation about several topics which made waiting pass very pleasantly. I noticed they were proactive in making each person who arrived feel welcome, including the courier.
