So, if you’d like to find out what Dr Emma’s desert island product is, read on to find out more…

Dr Emma Ravichandran was recently interviewed by Wigmore Medical after being shortlisted for not one, but four Aesthetic Awards! The following is an extract from the article.

Interview with Dr Emma Ravichandran

Firstly, congratulations on being shortlisted in four categories at the Aesthetic Awards: Best Clinic Scotland, Reception Team of the Year, Rising Star award for your colleague Dr Paula Mann, and Medical Aesthetic Practitioner of the Year.

How Does It Feel To Be Shortlisted?

“It’s nice to be shortlisted. We’ll be speaking at the Symposium at the ACE conference on the Saturday and attending the awards in the evening, so it would be amazing to take at least one award home at the end of the night.”

How Did You Start in Aesthetics?

“My background is in dentistry, and I practised for 15 years in both general practice and hospital, moving from adult care to paediatric. For the last seven years I also taught paediatric dentistry. It was when my mother mentioned that she had started having toxin treatments and suggested that I looked into that field that I went on my first training course and was hooked. I practised aesthetics alongside dental work and teaching for about seven years before I took the decision to go full time in aesthetic medicine.”

Why Do You Use Belotero Lips In Your Clinic, What Do You Find Are The Key Benefits?

“The Belotero Lips duo consists of two very rheologically different products designed to treat the vermilion border, cutaneous lip and body of the lips. The lips are made up of three distinctly different tissues and so, it stands to reason that one product cannot tailor to the requirements of all the tissues for rejuvenation.  The combination approach using Belotero Lips Contour intradermally to restructure the vermilion border and perioral barcode lines, and Belotero Lips Shape placed submucosally in the body for revolumisation delivers amazing natural and long-lasting results that my patients love.”

Why Do You Use ZO Skin Health Products?

“Skin is the largest body organ and your canvas to the world.  Healthy skin is one of the cornerstones to my aesthetic practice and, as such, having a prescriptive skincare range that I trust, delivers results and my patients love is so important to Clinetix.

The ZO range gives me the products I need to treat many skin concerns and then offers my patients a simple, easy to maintain, routine for long term maintenance of beautiful skin, with the five-step system. Everyone needs these steps as a base – cleanse, exfoliate, tone, barrier repair with Daily Power Defense, and SPF – we can then prescribe any additional products as necessary. The range delivers phenomenal results to our patients.

I also use ZO personally – the five-step program with Wrinkle + Texture repair at night.  My desert island product has to be Smart Tone, glowing skin with SPF 50!”

What Are The Future Plans for Yourself and Clinetix?

“Along with my life partner, Simon, and the Clinetix staff, we will continue to provide a world-leading centre of excellence in aesthetic medicine in Scotland.  We have recently invested in Ultrasound technology and 3D photography at all our clinics for better diagnosis, treatment planning and provision.  We plan to lead the industry in advancing treatments for optimal aesthetic outcomes and, most importantly, patient safety.

I personally plan to continue to share my knowledge and experiences with my peers through our Aesthetic Training Academy (ATA) in Glasgow, conference attendances and peer to peer educational meetings across the country and globally.  Through teaching I learn so much and hope to continue to grow as a provider of excellence in aesthetic medicine.”
