About Dr Rosemary Coleman

It’s all a matter of taste, but personally speaking I’d far prefer to err on the side of 5% under rather than 5% overtreated.

There’s nothing attractive about a distorted face no matter how wrinkle-free! It’s better to have friends wondering if you’d ever ‘consider having something done’ than commenting behind your back – aesthetic enhancements should never be noticeable. When carefully selected and conservatively administered, these dermatological treatments can keep us looking fresh, healthy and aging gracefully.

My aim is to hold on to what we’ve got and subtly replace what we’ve lost, rather than create something that was never there in the first place, eg big lips!

It is also important to remember that not everybody needs, or indeed will even benefit from, every available treatment. We will usually want to focus on the characteristic that is bothering the patient in particular, whether it be the frown line in some or crow’s feet in others. Many of our patients chose to simply improve their complexion and avoid invasive procedures altogether.
