A regular skin regimen is the first step towards maintaining a healthy skin tone and prevent wrinkles. Now, what is the correct skincare regime? Do I have to spend a lot of money to get a cream that works? Which one is the best? Here is my skin care advice:
Exfoliate your skin
The correct skin care should include exfoliation once a week and use of serum on an everyday basis. The most expensive creams are not always the best creams. The molecules in most of the creams that are on the market are too big to pass the skin barrier.
Use products that will penetrate the skin layer
I like and highly recommend the Agera range product. AGERA® Rx is the first skin care range in the world to use tiny bio emulsion particles to encapsulate its powerful anti-ageing ingredients and deliver them deep within the skin (see diagrams). These minuscule particles penetrate the skin’s outer layer to ensure minimum irritation and maximum results.
The treatment involves multiple microinjections of a vitamin & hyaluronic acid cocktail under the skin’s surface, which stimulates collagen production and improves the elasticity, pigmentation, and texture to improve the skin quality.
It replaces the essential vitamins, minerals and hyaluronic acid that is lost with lifestyle factors and aging
I often recommend mesotherapy treatment for those who wish to improve their skin’s radiance, firmness, and vitality.
It is an excellent way to achieve the subtle beauty preservation for which we all strive.
It is the secret for giving natural, beautiful, glowing skin.
Meso-gun therapy is usually carried out as a course of treatments usually about a month apart. The number of treatments required can vary from 3 to more, depending on what it being treated.
Meso-gun therapy can also be used in combination with other aesthetic treatments to give improved results. This will be discussed with me at your consultation.
Patients love the results and attend for maintenance every 3-6 months to keep the skin refined and bright.
Indications for Meso-Gun therapy:
General skin rejuvenation of the face, neck, décolletage and back of hands.
Fine facial lines.
The improvement of the appearance of some scars.

What is ‘Dracula therapy’ (PRP)? How does it work?
‘Dracula Therapy’ or ‘Vampire Facelift Treatment’ involves re-injecting the platelets rich plasma (PRP) to help to rejuvenate your skin for a more radiant complexion and remove face wrinkles for a more youthful look.
The procedure will require me to draw a small amount of blood from your arm and then spin it in a centrifuge until the red blood cells separate from the platelets and plasma. I will then inject the platelet-rich plasma back into your troublesome areas to smooth and tighten your skin.
The Dracula treatment is different to fillers but also works in a way that helps you achieve a wrinkle-free complexion. It generates type 1 collagen which will help to create more blood cells and help them function. This is what provides the skin with a filling effect that looks natural.
Why get the Dracula treatment (PRP) ?
People choose PRP because it is natural and autologous (obtained from the same individual), and you can also mix it in with other facial skin care treatments. You can mix it with hyaluronic acid and other types of treatments to have a long-lasting effect with the least side-effects.
- The procedure should not take longer than 90 minutes with little to no downtime.
- Duration of the results: 1-2 years (1-3 courses recommended from 1 month apart).
- Results start to be visible within a few weeks.

Most of my client’s requests involve smoothing wrinkles with Botox, especially in the upper part of the face. I like to point out the importance of botox to my patients as well and other rejuvenation procedures in the mid-face, lower face, neck, and décolletage to avoid an unbalanced result. Meso botox is a diluted botox concentration and it is the perfect solution for a balanced and natural result on the entire face.
First I inject little drops of the meso botox evenly across the lower part of the face. It relaxes the superficial layer of facial muscle which is responsible for fine lines and wrinkles. This technique does extremely well on the lower cheek to avoid skin crinkling, and in the neck area on the platysma bands.
The skin becomes smoother, tighter and it reduces the sebaceous activity – the “open” pores appear smaller and fewer in number.

The Ultra V lift is a skin tightening method based on the implantation of multiple Polydioxanone (PDO) mini threads, creating a vectorial network that acts as a support for the tissue. It produces a tightening effect while also enhancing natural collagen production. It stimulates skin rejuvenation, bringing vitality, elasticity, and a brighter skin. It improves the appearance of minor wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and loose skin and highly effective in both facial and body treatments.FIND OUT MORE
Often my patients are asking me which foundation to use. Unless you use professional make-up artist cosmetics used in the film industry, the cosmetics you find at the drugstore don’t have nearly enough pigmentation nor a high enough standard of staying power as camouflage foundation. They are simply not designed for the same thing.
Lycogel is designed for patients with scars from plastic surgery who would want to hide signs of their procedures. Post-surgery skin is often red and inflamed, discolored and particularly sensitive to the sun and the elements. Lycogel was therefore very conscious of wanting to create a product that would help accelerate the healing process rather than blocking pores and aggravating the skin further.FIND OUT MORE

Cheekbones, structure, volume, space, light, shade, beauty, architecture, how far we must push the slider to make it one again?
Men and women with naturally high cheekbones are instantly thought of as more beautiful, with youthful faces and distinctive features. For women, big eyes and a thin jaw complete the look. Facial rejuvenation no longer focuses on just treating superficial signs of aging (such as wrinkles) – it is a tridimensional approach to achieve a deep tissue regeneration. Dermal fillers with their different viscosities and the MD codes from Dr Mauricio de Maio help us creating attractive high cheekbones.FIND OUT MORE

We’ve all heard the term ‘getting your beauty sleep’. Well, as it turns out, not all sleeping positions are beneficial to our looks! In fact, a study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal says that sleeping on our side or stomach is linked with getting wrinkles! Putting our head on the pillow with our face squished against it can, over time, cause distortions to the skin. The repeated pressure each night can cause patterns of ‘sleep wrinkles’ to appear on our face.FIND OUT MORE
Do you dream of having lips like Angelina Jolie’s? Lips that look natural and are in proportion with your face? Teeth that complete the perfect look when you smile? By creating the perfect synergy between orthodontics and facial rejuvenation treatment, and using the best lip filler types, I help my patients achieve a beautifully balanced facial profile.Call today and book a consultation with Dr. Fern to find out if lip augmentation is the best option for you!
Achieving a beautiful smile with full lips and white teeth can help us feel truly wonderful. As well as making us look younger and more attractive, fuller lips can give our self-confidence a huge boost. Lip augmentation is a popular way of getting our dream, plump lips. But how do we achieve a look that is subtle and natural, rather than ending up with the ‘duck look’?
It’s natural to have a lot of questions when you’re preparing for lip augmentation. Does the structure of my jawline influence the outline of my lips? Do I need to take into account the shape of my face,the size of my features and muscle position in animation when I smile? Will my age and ethnicity influence results? The simple answer is ‘Yes’: for me, beauty is about knowing that everything is connected.
So, here are some of the ways I ensure your lip augmentation has beautiful, natural results.
I think that everyone should be able to feel happy and confident in their own skin, and a beautiful smile is an important part of that! It’s the first thing most people notice when they meet you, and can have a big impact on their lasting impression of you. If I met someone who greeted me with a huge, healthy smile, for example, I would remember them as being really friendly and outgoing! If they didn’t smile much, I might think they were shy or upset.
This might be because our lips thin out when we smile, or because our teeth are particularly small, or simply because the muscle in our upper lip is hyperactive, meaning the lip comes up higher than usual. All these issues are actually very common! But a gummy smile can still make people feel incredibly self-conscious and uncomfortable. If you have a gummy smile that you want to get rid of, but you don’t want to go down the road of surgery, then Botox treatment is an ideal non-surgical alternative.Find out more
What could be more beautiful than a confident, natural and healthy smile? I cannot think of anything better than seeing someone who has a big smile on their face. It makes me feel instantly happy, and as though I want to talk to that person! Smiling is all about confidence and being happy in who we are and the way we look. So, if we have yellow, crooked or broken teeth, we might feel self-conscious about opening our mouth when we smile – meaning we smile with our lips pressed together, and look shy or unhappy as a result.
I always advise my patients who are investing in different lip filler types for lip augmentation to think about getting their teeth whitened. It is one of the simplest ways we can make a positive and youthful change to our appearance, and really enhances the impact of our new lips – making them look full, plump and beautiful. I think you’d be amazed as how confident gorgeous lips and pearly white teeth can make you feel, and what a difference your new smile makes to your self-esteem.Find out more
