55 Harley Street

Treating skin in health as well as disease to a high standard is a crucial part of aesthetics. Nearly all aesthetic practitioners, regardless of background, need to be able to treat skin effectively or know when to refer on to other specialties. As a Consultant Dermatologist with a strong interest in beauty, skincare and aesthetics, this puts me in a unique position to be able to offer my patients a comprehensive service. This ranges from carrying out simple mole screenings to managing skin cancer, prescribing for chronic inflammatory skin conditions such as acne and rosacea, alongside offering injectable treatments, peels and laser. I consider patients’ mental health and work closely with psychologists, psychiatrists and lifestyle specialists to ensure no corners are cut and patients receive expert-led advice on all aspects of their health.

Aside from my clinical role, I have a passion for educating both professionals and non-specialists alike about skin: I am on a number of educational boards for delivery of cosmetic dermatology content to specialists, and instruct the general public on the topic of skin aesthetics through my verified social media and my book, The Skincare Bible.

Dr Steven Land

Dr Steven Land

Novellus Aesthetics

After 8 1/2 years in aesthetic medicine Dr Land has achieved a reputation for his natural full face transformations; lip augmentations and non-surgical rhinoplasties as well as taking on complications and corrective work from across the region. Over the last 12 month he has launched his evidence led, 1:1 training and pioneered the use of ultrasound in facial aesthetics to improve safety and patient outcomes whilst helping other practitioners through a 600 strong regional support group.
Reopening after lockdown saw the introduction of a brand new, holistic consultation and treatment planing paradigm - which is now being taken up and utilised by some of the bigger filler brands for their customers as well as our own trainees.
Next up is to take the regional support group 'live' with a quarterly aesthetics forum - sharing knowledge and networking; developing the training programme and continuing to push the government and our regulatory bodies for more regulation within aesthetic medicine.

Dr Dev Patel

Perfect Skin Solutions

I’ve been delighted to continue to develop my expertise, despite an uncertain year filled with isolation and lockdowns. I have been honoured with some exceptional roles awarded to me, including being 1 of 13 Merz Innovation Partners who are responsible for education on injectable treatments and being invited to give multiple talks at various virtual and in-person conferences. This year has been an exceptional year for my progress as an individual but also, I have been able to contribute to many training programs including teaching Doctors on Regenerative Medicine for their Diploma in Aesthetic Medicine course.

This year saw me launch my own bioceutical skincare line following a 5 year journey, CellDerma, offering industry leading results to those looking to improve their skin quality and appearance as well as being proven to reduce downtime and increase results from treatments.

Finally, my favourite case this year has to be Stephanie, who wanted to address her asymmetrical, weak chin following a childhood accident. Stephanie’s a beautiful person inside and out, and was prior to any treatment. But the treatment has given her some new found confidence in herself which has manifested how she is as a person and in life generally.
