It’s really hard to get doctors on board with any kind of product line, especially when it relates to skincare – it all seems to be so heavily marketed towards the beauty industry without much science behind it, which makes it hard to find something that you can truly trust is safe to recommend to your clients. When Dr Becky and Dr Nathalie opened The Clinic, it was Dr Becky who first met with Alumier MD to discuss stocking their product line in our premises and it’s safe to say she was unexpectedly blown away.
Alumier MD have impressed us for so many reasons; they are in line with our ethos to their very core as a business, particularly in respect of their “progressive not aggressive” mantra. Our therapists and doctors have completed days and days of training not just in their product lines but also in the in-clinic treatments that we can deliver. We use their products for homecare but also in our in-clinic chemical peels.
The Alumier MD science is impressive, they use active ingredients in all of their products but remain perfume-free and have no added extras (such as parabens and other nasties). Their product range is big enough that our therapists are able to build you a bespoke skincare plan whatever your concerns are. Their range focuses on the ability to treat four major skin conditions; acne, rosacea, pigmentation and ageing. Particularly with respect to rosacea, they are the only skincare line which has chemical peels that can be used for this very sensitive skin condition. The other huge appeal is their major focus on the use of an SPF, there isn’t a condition in the world that would not benefit from an SPF and as a plastic surgery led clinic we feel so passionate about the health benefits in terms of skin cancer prevention that we had to choose a range that felt the same.
The skincare range starts from just £19.95 and contains everything from a cleanser through to a high strength retinol and specially formulated Vitamin C serums which are pretty much guaranteed to help all skin conditions. Our therapists are able to provide you with a consultation during which you can bring your existing products and listen to them explain what to substitute to what. We’ll never oversell to you, it’s okay to make gradual changes, but there are usually a few key products that can help you.
We have seen amazing results just with home care for all of the conditions listed above, and similarly with our chemical peels (which are still on offer until the end of February). We are proud to be an Alumier MD training centre meaning we deliver training in the product line and in-clinic treatment systems frequently and work closely with Alumier and their amazing educators so that we can be in touch with the latest developments in their products.
I would urge you to book your skin consultation with one of our therapists today, bring your old products along and get involved with Alumier MD. It took a long time to find a range that impressed all of our doctors and now, you’ve even got Dr Susie using a full skincare regime (never thought we’d see the day)!
