Skin Tightening

As we age we are not able to create as much hyaluronic acid or collagen as our body needs. The gradual reduction in both as well as changes in fat and bone within the complex structure of our faces results in changes to facial volume, decreases in hydration and elasticity as well as an increase in skin laxity. Lines and wrinkles and hollows appear as the volume is lost and jowls and superficial fat deposits change and develop when the underlying structure can no longer support the upper layer.

Bespoke combination treatments

At Thames Skin Clinic we offer bespoke combination treatments tailored to your individual anatomical changes. Skin tightening can be achieved using different combinations of treatment to suit your individual needs.

We are all individual and as a result our bodies change in different ways. Your needs will be different to others although a very similar process is occurring inside. Our expertise lies in defining best treatment options to make the most positive change. Always working ethically to give the best treatment result with the minimum amount of product, treatment or procedure.

Clearer skin at last!

Dr. Hemming is the best when it comes to skin health and rejuvenation. I’ve been loving the OZ skin health range and it’s really improved my skin. (Clearer skin, tighter all over and reduced pore size). I’ve been spot prone all my life and was so fed up with nothing ever working. Finally I have a plan that is clinically proven and safe for my long term skin health. Thank you Dr. Hemming!

I look younger!

I received Fractora treatment now 3 weeks ago from Dr Hemming. There has been a slow healing and gradually I see myself less tired looking and my lines have noticeably reduced . The beginnings of a jowel I had along my jawline has disappeared which is exactly the part of my face that bothered me most. It seems as if I’ve had a face lift! My skin is firmer and the hollows less deep. I dare say I look younger.

I can highly recommend Dr Anna Hemming

I started to develop skin issues around my eyelid area. Having been to see two other dermatologists who were unable to assist due to the delicate and sensitive area around the eyes, it was a welcome relief for Dr Anna Hemming to be recommended to me. She immediately put me at ease, talked me through the available treatments, provided me with a quote and arranged to see me again to carry out the procedure. Within 2 weeks of the initial consultation my treatment was completed. It has made such a difference to my face already. I feel more confident and am so relieved to have found a consultant who not only listened but carried out a procedure that I was told was not possible. I can highly recommend Dr Anna Hemming and have already to my friends. I have no doubt I will use her again for any other derma-logical procedures.

I really trust Dr Anna Hemming

I have been coming to Dr Anna Hemming for wrinkle treatment for the past 4 years. I’m always happy with the fresher natural look she gives me. Friends have been surprised when I tell them I haven’t been on holiday and that my rested look is actually wrinkle treatment. I really trust Dr Hemming to do the best for me and feel safe in her experienced medically qualified hands. So, now she has opened a fabulous new clinic I’m venturing to other treatments. I’ve just had 3 LED sessions with aesthetic practitioner Lizzi (who is very knowledgeable and super friendly) and these have really plumped up my skin . I’ve booked a Hydrafacial for next week. The clinic is a uncluttered minimalist space with the latest skincare equipment. It feels hygienic yet relaxing. It’s a pleasure to visit. Thank you.

Amazing place, lovely staff

I was a bit apprehensive as I had never had a facial before but when I arrived and met Lizzie she put me as ease immediately and the treatment out of this world. Amazing place with lovely staff and a wonderful experience.

I absolutely love the results of the filler on my face and lips

Hi everyone, could you please let Dr Hemming know that I absolutely love the result of the fillers on my face and lips. I wanted a natural look and discussed this with her, and I have to say I was a little anxious about putting filler in my lips but I love them. I have the natural look I discussed with Dr Hemming and the one I was hoping for, it has given me a real confidence boost. Stay safe love Marian x
