Although right now plastic surgery is not something I am considering I was so impressed with the approach the staff at Elanic and the plastic surgeon ( and owner ) Vivek, take. Using an incredibly state of the art Vectra XT System, Vivek was able to show me the incredible differences surgical procedures can do for people The first clinic in Scotland to offer this technology, this 3d body scanner allows potential clients to assess the possible results before making their final decisions. The scanner allows for a high resolution 3d image which can then be manipulated in countless ways to give an idea of what changes will look like, this is invaluable to allow people to make better decisions when it comes to surgery. I was blown away by the quality of images it produces and watching Vivek manipulate them in a whole manner of ways, was an eye opening experience. The difference that can be made in such small changes was really incredible so I can only imagine how amazing this cutting-edge service is to someone seriously considering procedures.
There is hope though in the form of 3 Skinceutical products which the therapist specially picked to treat my issues. I was so exciting to get them home and get trying them out- I can't wait to go back to the clinic in 3 months time and see if they can help bring that skin age down!
Following my skin analysis I was lucky enough to get to sit down for a chat with resident dermatologist Dr Girish Gupta who was an absolute pleasure to chat all things skin with. I have only ever seen an NHS dermatologist before and although good there was absolutely a very restricted amount of time and options on offer and there was also a very considerable wait period which makes the service at Elanic a super option. You can go to Dr Gupta to discuss everything from acne to worrying moles ( he is a leading dermatologist on skin cancers in Scotland) to lumps, bumps and rashes and he is an absolute delight to chat to.
I was really impressed with the care Elanic take in helping their clients get the most out of themselves, their approach isn't a hard sell at all and you can feel their genuine shared interest in improving lives. I loved getting the chance to chat skin with the staff in the clinic and really had my eyes opened to a world of choices I didn't even know existed! I was so excited to get home and get my skinceuticals products that I think I was practically running. I am trying out an antioxidant treatment that so many of the staff absolutely raved about, and a couple of products to help my fresh pigmentation woes so hopefully I will see some good results on my next visit.
