      • I just wanted to say thank you to Omniya Clinic and Dr Roked for helping me. I had misconceptions about testosterone replacement therapy in the past, but now that I'm on TRT I feel back to my best! Long may it continue. Thank you to everyone at Omniya Clinic. MB - Matt

        I was having trouble with my acne for a while. I had been to a few clinics before Omniya but didn't get the results I wanted.

        Omniya was recommended and had great reviews. I saw Kerry Lou, one of their skin specialist. She explained that with the right treatment and a little patience I would see results. I brought a course of facials. Each one is slightly different depending on what is needed. I'm very happy with the improvement. - Shayma

        Great experience overall. The hormone doctor is phenomenal and has helped me a great deal. I wont go into too much detail but she has helped me in all aspects of my life. I have more energy I'm sleeping better. They have amazing skin treatments too. I recently tried PRP dermapen and my skin looks and feels great. - Danilo

      • I'm very impressed with this clinic. My experience from booking in with the reception team to being seen by one of their doctors has been phenomenal. I will definitely be recommending your services. Thank you Dr Roked for the level of care and how you've helped me so far. - Fred

        Fantastic face rejuvenation treatments. Dr Thu Linh NGuyen is extremely professional, gentle and so patient ! I am so grateful for her advice and so happy with the results ! - Henriette

        If you are thinking of going on Hormone Replacement Therapy I would highly recommend Dr Sohere Roked. She is the best doctor I have ever met. She listens and understands her patients (I know because my 2 sisters also see her) Her approach is different to other doctors as she is a trained psychologist - She understands the balance between hormone therapy and mental health. She has honestly saved my life! - Meridith

        Shockwave Therapy Treatment Information

        What is shockwave therapy?

        Over the past few years, radial extracorporeal shockwave treatment, also known as RESWT, has become one of the most investigated treatments for cellulite, including cellulite on the stomach area. With this treatment, extracorporeal shockwaves (ESW) are generated. These are single, acoustic high-pressure pulses. A device will transfer the wave of acoustic energy to the skin. The connective fibrous walls that are trapping toxins and fat under the skin, and causing cellulite, will breakdown thanks to the sheer force of the oscillating wave of energy. This will help to get rid of any lumps and bumps that are getting you down. The toxins and fat are released once the connective fibres have been destroyed. You can expect increased blood circulation, enhanced metabolic activity, and accelerated lymphatic flow.

        The science behind shockwave therapy

        The high-energy radial shockwaves have also proved scientifically to have a considerable impact on the structure of college and the connective tissues in the skin, improving blood circulation. This treatment will stimulate the formation of collagen while the skin becomes more elastic. After just a few treatments, you should notice a considerable difference in regards to the firmness of your skin. The injured tissues are aggravated by the high-intensity pulses of shockwave mechanical energy at a cellular level. This results in a healing response. The force the shockwaves will impact has been shown to be incredibly effective when it comes to breaking down scar tissue and calcium deposits. Decomposing these can result in increased mobility and function, providing you with an instant relief from pain.

        What is shockwave therapy used for?

        There are a number of different reasons why people have shockwave therapy. It is effective for anyone looking to achieve the following goals…

        • Gets rid of cellulite
        • Supports lymphatic drainage
        • Gets rid of pain
        • Tightens the skin
        • Removes stretch marks
        • Removes stubborn pockets of fat

        How shockwave therapy works

        Shockwave treatment originates from the medical field where it was pioneered to help with breaking down kidney stones. However, further research and studies showed that the acoustic waves were effective in terms of improving the elasticity of connective tissues and stimulating the metabolic process.

        Shockwave therapy works in four different ways, and these are as follows…

        • Shockwave creates a mechanical effect, which means that it mobilises the connective tissue. This tissue flexes, loosening it up, yet strengthening it at the same time. This results in denser elastin, which will improve the firmness and flexibility of your skin.
        • The treatment will aid lymphatic drainage. This ensures that broken down fat cells are removed, draining away in the lymph and processed out of the body.
        • You will also see your body tone because of the fact that the vibration from the shockwave transfers to the muscles as well. This causes the muscles to resist and contract, which generates a toning effect.
        • Shockwave treatment will also increase the flow of blood to the treatment area. This is because of the high pressure of the therapy. The increased blood flow increases the size of your existing blood vessels, as well as encouraging new ones to be created. This is known as neovascularisation. Improved blood flow will also increase oxygen and nutrients to the area, which means that you will see long-term benefits from this treatment as well.

        What is Cellulite?

        Did you know that between 80 and 90 per cent of women will experience cellulite? You would certainly not be alone if your cellulite is getting you down. There are a lot of fad treatments out there on the market today, which is why you need something that is scientifically proven, such as shockwave therapy.

        Cellulite is a term that is used to describe the dimples and lumps we get on our skin. It can impact both women and men, yet it is certainly more common in women. This is because of the different distributions of connective tissue, muscle, and fat.

        How do people get cellulite?

        There are a number of different factors that have been linked to your chances of getting cellulite. Some of the most common are as follows:

        • Genetic factors – Certain genes are needed for cellulite to develop. Genetic factors can be linked to a person’s circulatory levels, ethnicity, distribution of fat under the skin, and speed of metabolism. These can all impact your chances of developing cellulite.
        • Lifestyle and dietary factors – A healthy lifestyle can help to lower the risk of cellulite. However, toxins do not cause cellulite. You are more likely to experience lumps and dimples on the skin if you do not eat enough fibre yet you eat too much salt, carbohydrates, and fat. Cellulite can also be more prevalent in people who stand or sit in one position for extended periods of time, those who do not exercise, and smokers. While it is more common in people with excess fat, slim and fit people can have cellulite too.
        • Age and hormonal factors – Hormones also play a vital role when it comes to the development of cellulite. Prolactin, thyroid hormones, noradrenaline, insulin, and estrogen are all part of the cellulite production process.

        How can you prevent cellulite?

        One thing you have probably noticed about cellulite is that it seems to get worse, rather than getting better. There are a number of lifestyle factors related to cellulite. So, when you combine good health with shockwave therapy, you should see the best results. Some of the lifestyle changes that will help you to defeat cellulite include:

        • Weight management
        • Reduction of caffeine
        • Reduced sugar intake
        • Not being sedentary
        • Performing exercise
        • Drinking a lot of water
        • Dry body brushing
        • Eating a lot of raw vegetables and fruits
