Conditions vary greatly in their presentation and severity and can be temporary or permanent. They may be due to a situation or simply genetic, whatever the reason for these issues, they can cause a lot of emotional distress and affect confidence. Many skin, face and body conditions can be treated safely and effectively. Dr Nicky Naylor has many years of aesthetic practice experience and has successfully treated thousands of clients. Choosing a clinic that is lead by a highly qualified and experienced aesthetic doctor is essential to getting your condition treated in a safe and highly tested environment.

Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that most often occurs during puberty, however as we know, acne does affect adults as well. Mild adult acne may consist of blackheads, whiteheads, or small pustules. Severe adult acne often comes with more extreme redness, swelling, irritation, and deep cysts. Dr Nicky can help treat and relieve acne with one or a combination of the following solutions:
Acne Scarring
Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly. But if there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, infected material can spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions. The skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibers. These repairs usually aren't as smooth and flawless as the original skin. Scarring can be treated and softened in appearance. Dr Nicky offers the following treatments to help:
Ageing Décolletage
The décolleté is the area extending from the neck down to the chest. It is often one of the most neglected areas of the body. The skin on the chest is thin and lacks the oil glands that keep the face smooth. It is often exposed and subject to the damaging effects of UV light so can age. Wrinkles start to show as the skin losses collagen, elasticity and firmness. Dr Nicky offers an array of treatments to combat the ageing décolleté.
Ageing Hands
Hands often age faster than the face because the skin on the back of the hand is much thinner than the face. There is little fat on the back of the hands so the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, which happens as a result of ageing, is more obvious. The skin becomes crepe like, veins become prominent and the hands start to look bonier. People tend to neglect their hands, focusing on the skin on the face. The hands are more exposed to the elements including wind, UV light and detergents speeding up the visible ageing signs to the hands. Dr Naylor has an array of treatment options on offer to combat the signs of ageing in the hands and can offer advice on how to maintain keeping hands looking younger.
Age Spots
Age spots are small, flat dark areas on the skin. They vary in size and usually appear on areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, shoulders and arms. Age spots are also called sunspots, liver spots and solar lentigines. Age spots are very common in adults older than 50, but younger people can also get them if they spend time in the sun. Dr Nicky Naylor offers the following treatments to help improve the appearance of this pigmentation:
Dark Circles
Most commonly known as dark circles, tear troughs are the dark, deep under-eye hollows that sit beneath the lower eyelid and the upper cheek. As we grow older the appearance of the tear trough is exaggerated. Bones in the facial area shrink, the cheek pads slump and your skin becomes thinner and more translucent. This causes dark circles to become increasingly noticeable, giving the impression that you are always tired. At the clinic Dr Nicky Naylor offers the following treatments to improve the appearance of this condition:
Drooping Mouth Corners
As the face ages, there is naturally a reduction in the volume of the cheeks and skin elasticity is lost, causing saggy skin and lines around the mouth. Another common cause is that some muscles around the mouth become tighter with time and result in pulling the mouth corners downwards. The underlying bone structure of the face is also changed with age, and the jaw bone volume decreases over time which contributes to the look of drooping mouth corners. Dr Nicky Naylor's expert anatomical knowledge ensures natural results are achieved.
Dull Skin
Loss of a healthy glow isn’t always related to age. Dull skin tone is a result of excess dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin. Your skin can lose its natural luminosity because of dryness, damaged cells or slow cell turnover, all of which can happen at any age and in any season. This can make your face feel rough or bumpy, and can also give the skin a dull, lacklustre appearance. Dr Nicky Naylor has a number of treatments which can help improve and refresh your skin.
Enlarged Pores
Enlarged pores are visible depressions in the skin surface that contain openings to the ducts carrying oil or sweat from sebaceous and sweat glands. They can be caused by increased sebum production, sun damage and loss of skin elasticity. Acne is also associated with enlarged pores. Dr Nicky has the following skin treatments on offer to tackle this concern:
Excess Sweating
Also known as hyperhidrosis and characterised by abnormally excessive sweating not necessarily related to heat or exercise. You may sweat so much that it soaks through your clothes or drips off your hands. Besides disrupting normal daily activities, this type of heavy sweating can cause social anxiety and embarrassment. Rest assured there are solutions to this condition at the clinic.
Facial Volume Loss
Facial volume loss is caused by multiple factors including bone volume loss and the breakdown of proteins such as collagen that provide structure to your skin. This change occurs as we age. Our youthful balance of fat changes – we lose it in some areas and gain it in others. Key areas that lose volume include the cheeks, the brow, and the lips. As the cheeks sag and lose volume, they descend from their usual high position in the face near the eyes, to a lower position. Volume can also be lost in the brows, which exposes the upper orbital rim, giving the face a more skeletal appearance. Dr Nicky Naylor has expertise in addressing these problems with a combination of treatments.
Forehead Lines
There are many factors that cause forehead wrinkles including loss of facial fat, thinning of the skin and over activity of facial muscles. Specifically there are a set of muscles which are used to frown which with repeated use become stronger resulting in ' eleven lines', creating the appearance of looking cross or worried and making the brow appear heavy. Dr Nicky Naylor can effectively address these issues with the following treatments:
Gummy Smile
A gummy smile is the descriptive term for a smile when the upper lip elevates too far above the upper teeth, exposing an excessive amount of gum making the smile appear less attractive. An ideal smile will only have up to 2mm of gum showing with the upper lip sitting just above the top teeth. The most common cause of the gummy smile is hyperactivity of the muscles which elevate the upper lip. In the past gummy smiles were treated with invasive surgeries of the gum tissue and jawbone. Thankfully, developments in aesthetic medicine allows Dr Nicky to treat the appearance of gummy smiles with a non-invasive 10-minute treatment that is effective.

Heavy Brow
A person may naturally have been born with heavy brows, or find that their eyebrows have gradually sagged past their usual placement on the orbital bone. When a heavy brow appears along with sagging or heavy upper eyelids, it can create an angry, tired, and mean looking expression. Dr Nicky Naylor has various treatment options deployed singularly or in combination to address this concern.
Hollow Temples
Hollow temples are caused by a loss of volume in the face through reduced fat combined with skin losing its elastin and collagen levels. The process of ageing leads to bone loss which can further the appearance of hollow temples. Having temples that are sunken by ageing can affect the overall shape of the face and also leave you looking unhealthy or gaunt. Dr Nicky Naylor can offer a treatment to address this issue.
The term “jowls” is often used to describe sagging skin below your chin or jawline. Almost everyone develops jowls as they age. Over time, the boney platform of the face shrinks, supporting fat pads deflate and move. The skin in your cheeks and below your jawline loses much of its collagen and elastin proteins. As these proteins are lost, the cheek skin surrounding your mouth loses its firmness and tightness. Once this happens, gravity causes it to sag and descend to the area on either side of your mouth and chin. There are a number of treatments Dr Nicky Naylor offers that can improve the appearance and tightness of this area.

Laughter Lines
Laughter lines are crinkles etched in the corner of the eye. Unlike wrinkles or expression lines on other areas of the face, laughter lines can appear to look deeper or more pronounced on the skin. Some of the leading causes of these lines include UV exposure, over development of the surrounding muscle and the loss of collagen and elasticity that come with age. Dr Nicky can help soften and improve this area with the following treatments:
Lip Lines
Lip wrinkles, which are sometimes called lip lines, lipstick lines, or smoker’s lines, are the little vertical lines that form on the lips of older adults. These lines are notoriously difficult to conceal. Lip wrinkles form on both the lips themselves and on the skin of the upper lip. On the lips, they appear as a set of fine vertical lines, often stretching from one side of the mouth to the other. It’s not uncommon for lipstick to settle in these lines, making them appear darker and deeper than they actually are. Above the lip, vertical lines stretch upward from the lip toward the nose. These wrinkles are typically deeper and more pronounced than the ones on your actual lips. Dr Nicky Naylor specialises in a number of techniques to help improve the appearance of these lines.
There are many different types of headache. A migraine is a type of headache characterised by an intense, usually one-sided throbbing headache with associated nausea, vomiting or sensitivity to light, smell or noise. There are two types- classic with ‘aura’ and non-classic. They are managed usually with oral painkillers and sometimes medications to prevent the attacks. Botulinum toxin has been approved as a treatment to prevent migraines. Dr Naylor will carry out a full medical assessment to see if your migraines may be appropriately treated with botulinum toxin.

Milia Spots
Milia are small white bumps that appear on the skin, often in groups on the nose, around the eyes, cheeks and chin and can occur in any age group. They occur when the skin flakes and keratin get trapped under the skin surface. They are completely harmless but their appearance can be bothersome. Dr Nicky is here to help and can remove them permanently in one visit with the following treatment:

Neck Lines
The neck is very susceptible to the effects of ageing. Over time the skin on the neck becomes thinner, loses elasticity and hydration and neck wrinkles and creases develop. As the skin thins and the underlying fat deflates, the strong lateral neck muscles (platysma) can become more visible, creating vertical cords with deep creases or hollows between each cord. Dr Nicky Naylor has a range of treatments which can greatly improve the appearance of the neck area.
Nose to Mouth Lines
The irony of nose to mouth lines or laughter lines, AKA nasolabial folds, is that they're not actually caused by years of laughter or smiling. These factors do not even play a role in forming the deep folds in the skin which occur from mid cheek to chin and form parentheses around our lips. For some people they are simply a genetic characteristic or commonly they can appear as we lose elasticity and fat in the mid face as we get older. Dr Nicky is an expert in effectively and safely treating this concern.

Whether it shows in the form of dark marks and patches on the skin due to an overproduction of melanin, or the pesky scars that never seem to fade, hyperpigmentation is a highly common skincare struggle. Multiple causes are known for triggering hyperpigmentation, but sun exposure, inflammation and hormonal changes are the most common. Darker skin has cells that are capable of producing even more melanin when inflamed or damaged. Acne in skin of colour produces more reaction to the inflammation thus, dark spots can develop and persist. Dr Nicky Naylor has the following treatments to address this condition:
Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition which generally affects the face. It can cause redness, inflammation, pus-filled bumps and visible blood vessels. There are several theories regarding the cause including skin damage from UV light, genetics and inflammatory factors. Dr Naylor is experienced in diagnosing and providing a bespoke plan of treatments designed to resolve this issue.
Teeth Grinding
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common and debilitating condition which can lead to jaw ache, earache, an enlarged jaw line or asymmetry of the jaw and damaged teeth. It is characterised by involuntary clenching of the teeth and grinding of the teeth at night. Dr Naylor uses carefully administered botulinum toxin injections into the masseter muscle to weaken the muscle and relieve the tension.
Select treatment
Thin Lips
Over time, skin can begin to lose fullness and elasticity due to a reduction of hyaluronic acid and collagen. This can cause lips to appear thinner and more shrunken than before, which can naturally occur as we age. Other causes of thinning lips can include hormonal changes, sun exposure, smoking and dehydration. Of course, genetics also plays a role in the size and shape of your natural lips. Dr Nicky Naylor is highly experienced in restoring natural and more youthful looking lips.

Thread Veins - Face
Broken blood vessels (thread veins) are enlarged vessels that occur just below the skin surface. The resulting red, web-shaped appearance gives them their common name - spider veins or telangectasia. They are commonly found on the face but can appear anywhere on the body. They can develop at any age and can be associated with sun exposure, pregnancy, alcohol consumption, injuries and they can be hereditary. Dr Nicky has effective treatments to treat these vessels whether on the face or body. Dr Nicky will also offer advise on how to prevent further veins forming.

Thread Veins - Legs
In the legs, thread veins often referred to as spider veins can occur when the valves inside the veins start to leak. Veins carry blood back to the heart. In order to prevent blood flowing backwards veins contain a one-way valve which close when the vein pressure falls. If the valve leaks or fails, blood pools in the vein making it bulge and produce tributary vessels called thread veins or spider veins. They can be red, blue or purple and may appear in the form of thin lines or webs or branches and can vary in size. Dr Nicky blends the techniques of injection compression micro-sclerotherapy with the modern method of treating finer veins with thermocoagulation to help you achieve the results you desire.

Weak Chin and Jawline
A weak chin is often genetic but as we age the chin shrinks and the facial proportions change as the structural support of the lower face weakens. This can lead to the corners of the mouth becoming down-turned, jowls, wrinkles around the mouth and the cruelly named ‘witches chin’. A weak jawline can also be genetic but as we age, through bony reabsorption and change in fat distribution, the jawline can become less defined. A strong jawline is a coveted feature for both men and women. Dr Naylor uses a safe non-invasive technique to improve jawline definition and correct a small or receding chin, thus improving facial balance and profile.
