        I have had a great experience with Omniya and Dr Roked. I started TRT at the ripe old age of 58 and I have never felt better. Who knew hormones could make such an impact on someones life! - Richard

        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

        Great clinic. Had the designer lip filler with Dr Thu Linh and my lips look fantastic, they look natural too which I was worried about! Great team! - Vanessa

        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

      • 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

Omniya Clinic is without fail the best place for lip fillers in London! Thank you! - Nora

        Dermatology Treatment Information

        What is Dermatology?

        Dermatologists are doctors who specialise in diagnosing, investigating, treating and managing skin, hair and nail complaints in adults and children.

        Skin diseases and disorders are common, with around a quarter of the population in England and Wales, roughly 13 million people, suffering from some kind of skin problem.

        From skin cancer to eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea and rashes, the range of skin complaints that a dermatologist deals with is many and varied.

        A Dermatologist also has a range of procedures and medications that they can use to cure or alleviate the symptoms of many skin conditions too.

        As well as being referred to a Dermatologist by your GP, you can also consult a Dermatologist such as our skin expert, Consultant Dermatologist Dr Zainab Laftah, at specialist clinics such as Omniya Clinic. With such wide experience and insight into skin conditions, it makes sense to consult with a Dermatologist to manage both short and long term skin conditions.

        How to keep skin healthy

        The skin is the human’s body largest organ. But it does more than keeping us looking good. Effectively, the skin protects us. As well as keeping our internal organs in place and supporting the skeleton, its three layers also protect our internal organs from excessive temperatures, damaging sunlight and harmful chemicals.

        Your skin is also a huge sensory organ to, packed with nerves. Effectively, the skin is a tool that the brain uses to stay in touch with the environment around it. For example, in an environment that is too hot, your skin will send a message to your brain that you need to move away to somewhere cooler, just as you will want to find warmth if you are too cold.

        Many skin experts also believe that the skin is an outward sign of how well or healthy you are at a given time. With the right balance of nutrients, hydration, exercise and sleep, your skin will look and feel plump and healthy.

        But you will notice when you have been unwell, your skin displays all the tell-tale signs of imbalance, just like your hair and nails can. Your skin may be dry, rough to the touch and also itchy in places. Getting it back to a plump softness takes time, as well as changing your diet and rehydrating.

        The skin, just like other organs, can suffer from blemishes and other ailments, some of which need medical attention. And that’s where a dermatologist and the science of dermatology comes in.

        The biology of the skin

        Your skin is a truly wonderful and complex organ, the mechanics of which we are still discovering. What we do know is that the skin is made up of three layers, all of which combine to play an important role in protecting the body.

        The epidermis

        The outermost layer is the epidermis. This is mainly composed of cells called keratinocytes. They are made from a tough protein called keratin which is also found in hair and nails.

        Keratinocytes form several layers and are constantly growing outwards. The exterior cells eventually die and flake off. It takes around five weeks for the newly created cells in the deeper layers to find their way to the surface. This is why when your skin is in poor condition, it takes time to see the results of dietary changes and, in many cases, treatments and skin therapies too.

        The thickness of the layer of dead cells on the outer skin varies. This stratum corneum, also known as the horny layer is thicker on some parts of the body – on the soles of the feet, for example, this horny layer is ten times thicker than the skin around your eyes. This layer plays an important role in that it harbours defensive cells which alert your immune system if there are viruses or other infectious agents on the skin.

        The dermis

        The middle layer sandwiched between the outer and deep inner layer of skin is called the dermis. This layer adds strength and elasticity to the skin, largely thanks to fibres known as collagen and elastin.

        Blood vessels are also prominent in this layer, helping to regulate body temperature. If you are too hot, it will increase blood flow to the skin so that heat can be released – this is the reason why when you exercise, your skin may redden. When you are too cold, it will restrict blood flow to prevent heat loss, the reason why your skin can look pale, white or takes on a blue tinge when you are cold.

        There are also a plethora of nerves in this layer too, all of which transfer messages to the brain about touch, temperature and pain.

        The dermis is also jam-packed with hair follicles and glands. Sweat glands, for example, help regulate your internal temperature. Apocrine glands develop during puberty and produce the scented sweat that is linked to sexual attraction. The sebaceous glands secrete sebum, the oil-like substance that lubricates hair and skin.

        The subcutis

        The third layer of skin is deeper still and is often described as a seam of fat laid down as a fuel reserve in times of food shortage. It also works as an insulating layer, as well as a malleable cushion that absorbs knocks and falls.

        The complexity of the skin as an organ means we are yet to fully understand why some people’s skin reacts differently to agents and chemicals. This is why it makes sense to consult with a dermatologist. They have an in-depth specialist knowledge of the skin and can relate these to you and how your skin has a tendency to react to different agents and environments.

        When seeing a dermatologist makes sense?

        As we age, our skin changes. These changes are expected and by changing our skincare routine, lifestyle and diet, we can ably support our skin.

        But there are times when we notice issues with our outer layer of skin. No matter what cream we use or how many changes we make to the food and drink we consume, the exercise we take and so on, the problem remains.

        Some skin conditions, such as a rash, can disappear over time. But there are other skin conditions, such as blemishes and dry patches, that cause us problems. When they are visible, such as blemishes on the face, we can be conscious of them.

        Some skin reactions can be difficult to manage. For example, itchy patches that cause pain or discomfort are clearly issues that need attention.

        A dermatologist is the expert who can identify, diagnose and help with all kinds of skin conditions. Even though we all have the same three layers that make our skin, how it reacts to different stimuli such as environment will differ from one person to another.

        At Omniya Clinic, we are proud to be working with the best Dermatologist in London.

        What skin conditions a dermatologist can help with?

        There are a number of skin conditions that a dermatologist can help with. They include;

        • Acne – this is a skin condition that affects the hair follicles and oil glands in the skin. It is connected to sebum, the oil-like substance found in the middle layer of skin. There is no one single cause of acne although it can be linked to hormonal changes. Almost everyone at some time in their life will be affected by acne. When it is a persistent problem, or severe, or when it is painful and uncomfortable, many people will seek the help of a dermatologist to help manage it.

        • Rosacea – another ‘common’ skin disorder, rosacea is a condition that mainly affects the face. It causes small pimples on the nose, chin, cheeks and forehead. There are many triggers from harsh sunlight to chemicals, as well as stress, alcohol and in some cases, eating spicy foods. Again, a dermatologist can help someone with rosacea-prone skin to manage flare-ups, which can last for some time and be painful or itchy.

        • Pigmentation – our skin changes colour for all kinds of reason but for some people, patches of dark spots or blemishes on the skin are an issue. Melanin is the pigment that colours the skin. Should cells become damaged or unhealthy, the production of melanin can be interrupted leading to the colouration of the skin. Although harmless, the overall appearance is not always welcome which is why you may choose to consult with a dermatologist.

        • Thread veins – we know that the middle layer of skin is full of blood vessels. In almost 80% of adults, some of these veins, especially those in delicate and sensitive areas such as on the face, the blood vessels can become dilated or much larger than they should be. These are thread veins and happen for all kinds of reasons including as a result of acne or rosacea. There are powerful treatments that can reduce their appearance, something that our resident dermatologist will be able to help with.

        These are just four skin issues that a dermatologist can help with. There are many others too, such as thinning hair and skin and enlarged pores.

        Why you might need more than one treatment

        As we’ve said, the skin is a complex organ, one that varies in its reactions from one person to another. In other words, your skin is very much unique to you.

        No one knows why one person has acne-prone skin whilst another person is prone to blemishes or pigmentation, for example.

        Skin treatments are effective but they need to be tailored to you and, more importantly, you may find that you need a course of treatment to improve and manage your skin condition.

        As well as treatment with our dermatologist, you may find that making some lifestyle changes may also help. Finding food triggers, for example, is a course of action many dermatologists take when deciding on the best course of treatment.

        Who would not be suitable for treatment?

        Not all skin treatments are suitable for everybody. For example, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, there are some treatments which are best left until after pregnancy. If you are taking certain types of medication or have underlying health issues, such as diabetes, there may be some skin treatments which are not suitable.

        Our dermatologist, Dr Zainab, will discuss all your treatment options, using the consultation as an opportunity to assess your skin health and the options open for helping to alleviate, manage or effectively deal with the problem.

        Dermatology FAQ’s

        Many people turn to a dermatologist when over the counter remedies are no longer relieving or helping their skin complaint. Many people also turn to specialist dermatology treatments when they are looking to control or improve a long term skin condition.

        You will undoubtedly want to get the best from your appointment and so being prepared is key. As well as making a list of any prescribed medications, you should also make a note of concerns you have about your skin.

        If your skin condition is on your face, neck or head, it’s best not to wear makeup.

        This will vary depending on the treatments and services that our dermatologist feels will suit you.  We do offer Botox and similar treatments, but to get the right treatment for your specific complaint, it would be best to consult our dermatologist before opting for Botox.
        This depends on the nature of your skin complaint and the type of treatments suggested to you by the dermatologist. We would suggest that a commitment to good skin should be something that is a long-term plan, but we do recognise that some complaints may only need one course of treatment to resolve.
