Dr Martin Nimmo, a dental and aesthetics doctor at the Cadogan Clinic was featured in an article on Huffington Post, providing his comment exploring complaints made about facial cosmetic procedures.

Dr Nimmo shared his insight into the growing number of younger patients seeking aesthetics treatments, driven by social media as many people want to look like a filtered version of themselves. He comments, “People are, with Instagram and social media, more conscious of the way they look and behave now. And I think that’s a trend that will probably increase as the cohort of patients who are maybe had mobile phones in their hands from day zero, they’ve been exposed to social media from a young age, I think in the decades to come, it would be interesting to see how they go about treatment.”

As the aesthetics industry and demand for procedures continues to grow, the Cadogan Clinic urges patients who are considering having any aesthetics treatment, such as Botox or dermal fillers, thoroughly research the procedure, possible risks associated and credentials of their practitioner before proceeding. It’s also advisable to research the product being used, including the brand and use by date. A checklist on dermal filler regulations can be seen here.
