Tay Medispa

Tay Medispa is the partnership of husband and wife team, Simon and Julia Langford. The concept was borne out of changes on the horizon in relation to Health Improvement Scotland, and the need for a high-end clinic in the area. Dr Julia Langford had been providing Aesthetic treatments in Perthshire since 2009 and wanted to centralise her services. Therefore, in February 2017 we launched Tay Medispa. We offer wrinkle reducing injections, Dermal filler and Lip filler. We have now added advanced techniques, including mid/lower face contouring and lifting with the Juvederm Vycross range.

We also use the Venus Versa which performs:

Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse

NanoFractional Radio frequency with SmartScan

Multi-Polar Radio-frequency + Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields

This allows us to perform: non-surgical face lifts, wrinkle reduction, skin resurfacing, skin rejuvenation, body contouring, cellulite reduction and permanent hair removal. More recently we launched Tribella, an innovative treatment combining photofacial, lifting, sculpting, and skin resurfacing in one session; making it the most comprehensive answer for complete skin renewal.

We complement this with iS Clinical & ZO Skin Health cosmeceutical skincare ranges and are poised to launch AQ Skin Solutions, which employs Human Growth Factor technology.

Within Tay Medispa, we provide a wide range of other services. Our vision was to bring together the very best Professionals across Aesthetics, Healthcare, Sports Medicine, Beauty and Holistic Therapies. We put our clients at the heart of everything we do, to ensure they benefit from having different services under one roof and a Multi-Disciplinary approach.

In our launch month we saw 40 clients, but we now regularly see over 600 clients across all specialities and have performed over 6000 treatments.

Susan Kitchen’s approach is to focus on the face as whole and she believes in the natural approach to treatments whilst addressing clients’ concerns. Clients are educated about the science of aesthetics and the ageing facial features. They come away looking better, not different – younger and fresher, without obvious signs of treatment, but with their natural beauty noticeably enhanced.

‘Shared decision making (SDM) s essential in evidenced based medicine. The fields of cosmetic medicine and aesthetic surgery are well situated for SDM because multiple treatment options exist. Furthermore, the patient’s values and opinions are of major importance in the decision to undergo aesthetic treatments and should therefore also be paramount in the decision-making process regarding the treatment.
