I entered Dr Pradnya Apte’s bright clinic on the top floor of one of the nicer addresses on Harley Street on a grey winter afternoon and immediately felt reassured it was a good place. They took detailed information about my skin and and the receptionists where professional and friendly, when Dr Pradnya Apte welcomed me into her practise room (right on time) she gave me a brief but informative description of what she would like to do to my skin based on my notes. After thoroughly examining my skin, she began the Image Skincare Signature facial, she took great care of my hyper sensitivity and I felt she really listened and took in the concerns I had, not only looking at my skin. Dr Pradnya is carrying out results driven facials at her clinic in Harley Street so they may not take as long as a ‘normal’ facial but are in many ways promising better and more long term results.
Harley Street has long been associated with housing the best of the best in the medical world and now Dr Pradnya is counted among them, taking residence at Harley Street Dental Studio at 52 Harley Street. Dr Pradnya, also known as The Lip Dentist, qualified as a Dental Surgeon in 1993, but since 2007 she has focused on her passion, facial aesthetics. She started her training on Harley Street and continued her training in several of the UK’s leading advanced medical aesthetic clinics. She opened her first clinic Skin South West in Exeter, Devon in 2015 and then her Harley Street clinic in 2019.
Dr Pradnya Apte has built up a loyal patient base over the years which has resulted in her move to London to be more accessible for her international clients, she is best known for her ability to achieve a natural looking rejuvenation of the face based on her knowledge of the jawline and facial muscles. As well as results driven facials Dr Pradnya also offers at her Harley Street Clinic peels, Botox, Fillers and full facial rejuvenations including her award winning treatment, Rejuvalift™, which is a combined 3D approach to total facial rejuvenation. It involves using Ellanse, lip augmentation, Botulinum Toxin injections and Silhouette Soft threads to reposition soft tissues.
Dr Pradnya Apte has also been nominated for and won several awards for her work and she also regularly contributes to professional press journals such as Aesthetic Medicine and additionally she is the resident facial aesthetics contributor for Sunday Women Magazine.
Verdict of my Image Signature Facial – My skin was stinging a little bit when I came out from the clinic but that was soon gone. The Image skincare range used is of medical grade which essentially means the molecules in the products are much smaller and for that reason penetrates deeper into the skins deeper layers with a better result. Two days after the facial I must admit I am surprised how a 30 minute facial can give such a good result, my skin looked calm and well hydrated. I would definitely recommend a visit to Dr Pradnya for result driven skincare.
