1. The ultimate remedy for dark circles and flagging eyes
See: Dr Marwa Ali at The Wellness Clinic, Harrods, 87-135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, SW1X 7XL. Treatments from £695
Eye cream not touching those dark under-eye shadows? You may need some extra help. The go-to person in London is Dr Marwa Ali. She administers micro-droplets of hyaluronic acid filler to the tear-trough area to revitalise and add volume, giving you refreshed and much perkier eyes. The procedure is painless and has no downtime. She’s also a dab hand at baby Botox, too.
2. The non-surgical brow lift
See: Dr Maryam Zamani, Cadogan Clinic, 120 Sloane Street, Chelsea, SW1X 9BW. Consultation from £250; treatment from £700
Not only a respected oculoplastic surgeon, Dr Maryam Zamani is also a leading facial aesthetic doctor. With her brilliant attention to detail, and the mantra ‘less is more’, you’ll leave the clinic looking like a fresher version of yourself. For her downtime-free non-surgical brow lift, she uses Ultherapy® – the treatment responsible for supermodel Christie Brinkley’s youthful appearance. She’s also about to launch her new MZ Skin Light Therapy Golden Facial Treatment device, to even out and refine skin tone. Watch this space.
3. The all-in-one facial rejuvenation treatment to banish fine lines, blocked pores, acne and pigmentation problems
See: Dr Preema, London Clinic, 4 Chandos Street, Marylebone, W1G 9DH. Hydrafacial from £135; Botox or Azzalure from £250
Head over to Dr Preema Vig’s boutique-looking medi spa. Start with a Hydrafacial to refine your skin. Whether acne, pigmentation or too much sun is the problem, this super-charged machine fixes all face woes and leaves it glowing for weeks.
Follow this with an appointment with Dr Preema, and her aesthetic eye is one of the best injectable practitioners in London. She also offers Azzalure® by Galderma instead of Botox, which means the results last a little longer too. Perfect for beginners who want to ward off fine lines as well as those who need to remedy deeper frown lines and crow's feet.
4. Smooth, tone and tighten face and body by tonight
See: Dr Rita Rakus, 34 Hans Road, Knightsbridge, SW3 1RW, for an ULTRAcel treatment

There are no quick fixes to shedding the pounds. However, tightening the skin can make a massive difference when showing off areas in your LBD. Here’s where ULTRAcel comes into play, toning and tightening bingo wings, saggy knees and addressing loose skin. It’s a high-intensity focused ultrasound machine that works by stimulating the skin at a deeper layer with heat. It has no downtime, swelling or bruising, and as Dr Rita Rakus has over 25 years of experience, and a wealth of celebrity clients, you know you’re in very safe hands.
