Dr Hala Mahfoud
New treatments, the latest equipment, a relaxing environment… Dr Hala and her team of professional therapists deliver the very best specialist aesthetic and beauty care
‘Clients coming to see us for facial and body treatments are talking about it and asking for our opinion – that’s only natural,’ says Dr Hala Mahfoud. “It” is, of course, coronavirus, and when we spoke the figure for those affected in the UK was nearing 300.
Now leading her own highly respected health, beauty and aesthetic clinic, Dr Hala previously worked for many years as an NHS Consultant. ‘Coronavirus seems to be particularly affecting those with low immune systems,’ she says. ‘We recommend two treatments: firstly, tailored Vitamin IV infusions of minerals, amino acids, anti-oxidants and peptides and, secondly, ozone therapy. In our experience, both these methods are effective in enhancing the immune response.’
Dr Hala founded her family-run clinic in 2017 with the vision of delivering high quality care in a safe, comfortable environment. ‘We have invested in the latest equipment and that means we can adapt our approach according to a patient’s age, condition and budget,’ she says. ‘Also, we are constantly expanding our range of therapies, often in response to patient requests.’
Most excitingly, Dr Hala has recently launched her own branded daily Skincare Collection. It features clinically tested products that combat signs of ageing, restore elasticity and achieve brighter, healthier skin, including non-oily hydrators, revitalising serums to stimulate collagen, a glycol wash, a lip plumper and a lightweight sunscreen.
As the medical profession has discovered more about how the body can heal itself and regenerate tissue, so treatments have been developed based on this natural ability.
One such is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. ‘We call PRP the vampire facial,’ smiles Dr Hala. ‘It harnesses a patient’s own system to rejuvenate skin, reduce fine lines, blemishes and wrinkles, diminish scarring and stimulate hair growth.
‘We have also started using PRP in O-Shot treatments designed to enhance the sexual experience. It’s a simple procedure. Blood is drawn in the same way as a sample and placed in a centrifuge. That separates the platelet-rich plasma, which is then injected back into the genital area, stimulating stem cells, collagen and blood vessels and heightening arousal and pleasure before and during sex.’
Dr Hala’s clinic is one of the few in the UK with a Femi-Lift laser machine, which boosts collagen, the protein responsible for skin elasticity. ‘Post-birth, many ladies leak when they exercise, sneeze or cough,’ she explains. ‘The Femi-Lift provides non-surgical relief from stress urinary incontinence and also alleviates vaginal dryness and pain during sex.’
Warm and welcoming, Dr Hala sees all new patients herself (the initial consultation is free) and she is supported by three friendly, fully qualified therapists. ‘We understand that everyone is different,’ she says. ‘That’s why we take the time to devise a personal plan for each patient. We’re proud of what we do and we want to achieve the very best outcome.’
