Read Our Amazing Reviews
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
I've been going to Omniya for years and I've always been impressed. This review is long overdue. I've had a few procedures done with them and I've been thinking of doing a hair transplant for years, now that they're offering it I will definitely go ahead with it. They only work with the best doctors. Thank you Omniya. - Adam
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
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
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
Fantastic clinic. Everything you need in one place, I started seeing Dr Roked for HRT. She has changed my life. They have a pharmacy too which is convenient for me. I never write reviews but this clinic has changed my life! - Vanessa
What Is Platelet Rich Therapy?
Platelet Rich Therapy has been endorsed by experts and numerous celebrities including athletes in sports, it is an exciting, non surgical and natural treatment that uses your own healing abilities to assist follicle and stimulate recovery. In the media, the treatments have been coined as the vampire facial.
It has also efficiently been used in neurosurgery, oral surgery, cosmetic and plastic surgery, orthopaedics and sports medicine, treating people for various conditions and injuries. The treatment has little to no side effects and involves little to no pain.
The production of collagen, induced by PRP, brightens, rehydrates and rejuvenates after the first treatment, although a course is normally recommended. This procedure overall improves the general health of your skin.
How Does It Work?
The vampire facial, or PRP involves drawing blood from you, then spinning this in a medical grade centrifuge, separating the platelets and then reinjecing them into your skin through microneedling.
The nurse will microneedle (using a microneedling device), the area whilst locally applying the platelets. The platelets can also be injected into the treatment area. The PRP can also be injected directly and around the focus area.
Stem cells and autologous products in the blood contain essential growth factors that help to heal and regenerate damaged skin tissues over time. The injection of platelets that are high in growth hormone, and the microneedling or injections will stimulate the skin to regenerate new cells.
What Are Platelets?
Platelets are the cells circulating within our blood, binding together when they recognised damaged blood vessels. For example, when you cut your hand, over time the platelets bind to that area in the hand.
What areas can be treated?

What Are The Benefits?

During your consultation, your practitioner will discuss the treatment, your goals, the procedure and your medical history including past injuries to the area. We will also go through any medications you may be taking as some medications can cause sensitivity to the skin. Here, you can discuss any queries you may have about PRP.
Following the initial consultation, if you agree to proceed, your practitioner will draw a small amount of your blood from your arm using a small needle.
We then spin your blood very fast in a centrifuge, which separates the platelet rich plasma (containing the important growth factors), from the other blood cells. Once this is completed the PRP is extracted and ready for use.
Should you wish, we can apply a local or topical anaesthetic to numb your treatment areas, although most patients do not feel any pain during this treatment. Your practitioner will then apply (via injection or needling) the platelet rich plasma into, and around, the site you wish to be treated.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Each person reacts differently to any treatment. Typically, patients have between 2-4 sessions, 4-6 weeks apart and find this to be sufficient. Your practitioner will let you know how many treatments will be required dependant on your requirements and skin type. We will also advise on a skincare routine at home to improve your results.
