The Importance of Skincare
Just as you would brush your teeth at home each day and visit the dentist once or twice a year to maintain good dental health, a visit for a facial treatment can complement your home skincare routine perfectly.
We work with two exceptional brands that have years of robust science, clinical research and experience backing each product. A wide range of skincare concerns, such as pigmentation, dryness, fine lines and acne, can be managed using Obagi Medical, SkinCeuticals or a combination of both. They have options for at-home skincare and a range of professional treatments when you visit the clinic.
Dr Tunney is passionate about educating her patients about their skin, which products to use and why. Understanding why your skin needs a certain product and seeing the positive changes will mean you are more likely to use it. And when it comes to skincare - consistency and patience are key!
Investing in your skin now will future proof your skin so that you can enjoy healthy, glowing skin for years to come. It's never too late to start looking after your skin, and if you are unsure of where to start, come in for a consultation and Dr Tunney will help you find a routine that works for you.
As part of her training, Dr Tunney completed the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection Course (MASCED) as a skin health assessment would not be complete without checking for any abnormal or changing skin lesions. Early detection of skin cancers allows for early treatment and prevention of spread.

SkinCeuticals was founded by Dr Sheldon Pinnell, and for a period of over 33 years have provided us with an advanced formulation of potent vitamin C and other antioxidants with results backed by scientific and clinical research allowing integration of skincare and clinical procedures to provide optimal results.
SkinCeuticals offers a wider range of products to treat specific concerns, such as discolouration/pigmentation, breakouts, redness, sensitivity, dry/dehydrated skin, dullness and rough texture.
Their products are designed to be integrated into every aspect of aesthetic medicine, and they have protocols and products to complement injectables, microneedling, HydraFacial and many more.
The SkinCeuticals Philosophy
Future skin damage with the use of powerful antioxidants.
Visible signs of damaged, unhealthy or ageing skin.
Your healthy skin using advanced UV protective sunscreens.
Alongside our in-clinic treatments, your home skincare routine can help to make improvements in your skin health and appearance. We will often recommend a period of skincare preparation prior to any more invasive injectables, microneedling or chemical peel treatments. This is to prepare your skin for the upcoming treatment, trigger it into "healing mode" and ultimately, improve the outcome for you.
We stock a range of the Obagi Medical and SkinCeuticals products in the clinic, however, if there are products that you would like, or Dr Tunney recommends. these can be ordered and delivered to you, or collected from the clinic.
We understand that everyone has a unique budget for such products and treatments, and Dr Tunney will always aim to work within yours.
Rachel was extremely professional, kind, understanding and supportive during my consultation. I suffer with bad skin, acne, pigmentation and dark blemishes. I was feeling extremely drained and down but after seeing Rachel who was patient with me, she has recommended some treatments to help with my skin, which I'm very excited about. I couldn't recommend Rachel enough. She's incredible!
