GHP / Q3 2021 25 , Jun21371 Health and Wellness Excellence Dr Yusra Al-Mukhtar is a dental surgeon and facial aesthetic practitioner, with premium clinics inHarley Street, London and Liverpool. Dr Yusra’s newly-launched, cutting-edge aesthetics wellness clinic in Liverpool utilises the latest, most gentle and effective evidence-based, medically proven techniques to support empowered transformations. Recognised by Global Health & Pharmamagazine for 2021’s Award for Excellence in Anti-Ageing Aesthetic Treatments, we take a closer look at what Dr Yusra’s Health andWellness clinic can offer patients. A centre of aesthetic excellence, Dr Yusra’s discreetlylocated clinic is medically-led and features state-of-the art FDA approved technology for proven results. It hosts five specialist treatment rooms, all offering a luxury experience, alongside world-class treatments. The Sculpt Suite is focused on helping clients to enhance their silhouette. It is home to one of 30 ULTRAcel machines in the whole of the UK and one of only 110 CoolSculpting® machines in the country. ULTRAcel is a next generation, multi-platform device offering non-surgical facelift and body skin tightening and lifting procedures, completely needle and surgery free. It also addresses fine lines and wrinkles. CoolSculpting® is the number one cryolipolysis system on the market – a non-surgical technology that freezes fat cells in the abdomen, thighs, back/bra strap areas, chin, flanks/sides, arms, male chest, buttocks and knees to permanently get rid of fat. The Aesthetics Suite is where Dr Yusra’s aesthetic artistry comes into its own. Here, she offers Botox anti-ageing treatment and dermal fillers that support the structural components that maintain a youthful face, addressing volume loss such as flattening of the cheeks (midface), hollowing under the eyes, line formation around the nose, mouth and chin, as well as lip definition. The bio remodelling treatment, Profhilo, which works to cure wrinkles from within, rather than just fill them, is also available here. Dr Yusra is also a specialist in medical rhinoplasty, a corrective treatment to straighten the nose performed with medical intervention via injections to the nose instead of surgery. A nose job, but without the surgery. The procedure involves using a dermal filler and is performed in the Injectables Suite, where patients can have their treatment and leave within the hour. The Skin Suite delivers Dr Yusra’s signature glow, brightening, high-tech and anti-ageing treatments. These include INTRAcel micro needling and radio frequency treatments, which use proven technology to reduce the signs of ageing, eliminate wrinkles and correct scarring with little or no downtime, and the six-step HydraFacial treatment, which uses the latest technology to cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin. Having personally struggled with acne in the past, Dr Yusra also offers leading acne and acne scarring treatments in the Skin Suite. Treatments include Dermaroller, skin peels, skin boosters, volite, skin rejuvenation and chemical peels, using leading medical-grade brands that include Obagi Nu derm and Skinceuticals. Skin Suite clientele are also provided with treatments to administer at home, supported by a continual journey of care, which includes virtual and in person check-ins to ensure accountability. Dr Yusra’s story started at the age of eight years old, when a nasty accident at home led her to cut her lip open. She needed several stitches in her gums and lower lip, earning her the nickname “Baby Horror” from classmates. This early trauma was compounded by bad acne as a teenager. These experiences led to a life-long passion for the link between appearance and wellbeing. An expert in aesthetics artistry, with a surgical history in facial anatomy, Dr Yusra has been practicing non-surgical cosmetic procedures at her clinic in Harrow on the Hill since 2013 and Harley Street since 2019. Often referred to as the Glow Doctor, Dr Yusra’s core values are rooted in a philosophy of empowered transformation, providing treatments that deliver both radiance on the outside and wellness on the inside, and bring the best version of each patient to life. As an experienced facial aesthetic practitioner working in oral and maxillofacial head and neck surgery and skin cancer surgery, Dr Yusra developed a keen interest in facial reconstruction. She spent several years training in maxillofacial surgery at various trauma hospitals in London, working with victims of domestic violence and road traffic accidents. Ultimately, Dr Yusra’s clients come to her precisely because they are looking for a more rejuvenating, elegant and fresh-looking enhancement, as opposed to a cookie cutter ‘overdone’ or ‘duck pout’ look. Dr Yusra is now really excited to be expanding into cosmetic dentistry. Her clinic will be bringing on new technologies to its Blundellsands clinic, including the Morpheus8, the first and only device to mould fat subdermally in order to morph the ageing facial features into a more youthful appearance. Dr Yusra plans to offer new treatments, including surgical treatments such as liposuction, and she will expand her team to include a menopause doctor. Many of her patients are peri- or pre-menopausal and suffer from a wide variety of symptoms. There is a gap in the market for good menopause care and Dr Yusra’s Clinic hopes to be able to empower patients during this period of their life.
