I have become a little obsessed with my skin these last few months. I seem to be one of those lucky ones who gets spots in their 30′s. I didn’t suffer with acne or bad skin when I was a teenager, but now I’m getting older I’m looking for things that can clear spots and help the ageing process. Never one to do things by halves.
Like most women (not all granted) I’ve been interested in botox and I am slightly tempted to try it. I obviously don’t need a LOT of it, just around the eyes and a frown line that seems to be there even when I’m not frowning, but I wanted to see someone who wasn’t going to fill my face in places that didn’t need any treatment just because they could. I also wanted someone to be honest & tell me if it was something I should be thinking about already, or if I was just jumping the gun. To me, the thing that bothered me most was the spots. The wrinkles, while noticeable to me, weren’t obvious to everyone else, but the bright red, hormonal spots that I seem to suffer with each month were blindingly obvious.
Dr Daniel Sister MD is a world renowned cosmetic, anti-ageing and hormone specialist doctor. He has practiced in the worlds premier surgeries, establishing himself initially in Paris before moving to LA to maintain the looks of Hollywoods elite and most famous, (and watched) celebrities.
He now resides in London where, after running a successful Harley Street practice, he moved his surgery to BeautyWorksWest exclusively in Notting Hill, which is where I visited him. He was very honest with me, telling me I could have botox but it really wasn’t my main issue, and by trying to treat the spots from the outside in, I was getting nowhere fast. It seems that after 3 rounds of IVF, a very bad birth & a lot of medial drugs after giving birth, I probably have a hormone imbalance which is not only affecting my skin, but my weight as well. Listening to him it made perfect sense, and rather than just throwing antibiotics at me like my GP’s have done several time (with no effect) he gave me a list of blood tests to request, which will pinpoint where & what is going wrong, once I’ve had these done I will go back to see him and maybe finally get a result that actually works.
Daniel’s surgery offers a full range of dermatological treatments, the latest injectables such as Botox, Restylane, Parlance, Radiessem, Bio Alcamid and Xeomim as well as SmartLipo; laser and elos ReFirme for anti-aging; acne treatment and hair removal. Dr Sister also consults on nutrition and weight, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problems, HRT, chronic fatigue, anti-ageing and DHEA. He is a world-renowned anti-ageing and hormone specialist, and practices exclusively at BeautyWorksWest in London.
He has also introduced a number of ‘firsts’ to the UK market, including the highly successful S3 therapy, aka ‘Dracula’. This treatment has attracted worldwide attention, easy to understand when you read that it involves taking blood from the patients arm, spinning it for 8 minutes to separate the red cells & plasma with platelets, as scary as it sounds it’s a totally natural way to improve the skin and help with hair regrowth!
Dr Sister is also the brains behind the YOUTH Supplement, which I wrote about a while back here. These supplements are amazing. I need to restock ASAP! Designed to reverse the signs of ageing from the inside out, by stimulating growth hormones that deplete as we get older. It has been covered extensively in the press, and has proved to be an instant, sell-out success.
I am waiting to get my blood tests done, once I have my results I will be straight back to visit Dr Sister, and, when the time comes for Botox I know exactly who I want to do the treatment for me. In fact, in an ideal world I would see him for most of the major treatments to my skin.
