Forget about surgery. Now it’s all about the subtle tweak.

By Polly Vernon

In a recent article in The Times Polly Vernon reported ‘Forget about Cosmetic Surgery, now it’s all about the subtle tweak!’

At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic we have been performing natural subtle cosmetic ‘tweakments’ for many years.

Dr Tracy Mountford was an early adopter and trailblazer of the ‘less is more’ approach in order to refresh and enhance natural looks in her patients but all in an age appropriate way. In fact, all her injectable team have been handpicked and mentored to carry on this ethos within The Cosmetic Skin Clinic.

We were delighted when Dr Sophie Shotter was quoted in the Sunday Times magazine article as another ‘tweakment expert’ and was quoted saying: “The fear of having bad work is greater than ever. Most of my new consultations start with, ‘Ideally I don’t want anyone to be able to tell’ which is one of the most common concerns of many of our patients.” Sophie also went on to say in this article, how particularly scarred the nation was by the Lesley Ash’s ‘trout pout’ story. The reason for Dr Sophie highlighting this story was to emphasise that bad work is so obviously visual but good work is not. “Our motto is that good work should be invisible – people should think you look naturally beautiful”.
