Doctor opens Skin Rejuvenation & Aesthetic Clinic in Bristol
Skincare, The Hydrafacial, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Vampire Facial, Microneedling, Hair Loss Treatments and more
Dr Christine Cowpland, who has had a distinguished international medical career, practicing as a clinical doctor, conducting medical research and teaching, has opened a boutique Skin Rejuvenation & Aesthetic Clinic, in the Clifton area of Bristol. All treatments are performed by her, she has 7 years’ experience in the industry and teaches aesthetics for the Harley Medical Academy.
Dr Cowpland trained under New York-based Dr. Blumenfeld, a pioneer of Botox treatment for chronic migraine. She joined the NHS as a clinical fellow of neurology, where Botox injections were used to reduce unwanted muscle contraction in stroke patients.
Having witnessed the transformative results of this treatment, she began treating patients cosmetically with Botox and dermal fillers.
Recognising the importance of healthy looking skin for patients’ emotional – and so physical – well-being, Christine has brought a holistic approach to the ground-breaking techniques she employs at her CMedical Aesthetic Clinic in Pembroke Road.
Hers is the first clinic in Bristol to offer a number of leading edge therapies. Her centrifuge for Platelet Rich Plasma is the same as the model used by the NHS under NICE guidelines for the treatment of chronic wounds.
Dr Cowpland is the first person to the South West to use a Teoxane injecting pen for dermal fillers. This reduces pain and bruising, gives better results and requires less product, resulting in a cost savings for clients.
Her microneedling therapy, which stimulates the skin’s natural collagen and elastin, has been shown to dramatically improve the appearance of stretch marks. Microneedling is an effective alternative the current fad for scrubs, which have limited effect and can in fact be harmful to the skin.
She is also among the first clinicians in Bristol to offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments. It was used to treat ex Chelsea and England captain John Terry’s Achilles tendon injury. Also known as the ‘vampire facial’, it has been shown to improve skin and treat localised hair loss in men and women. Unlike the drug finastraide, which is commonly taken to treat hair loss by the likes of Donald Trump and Wayne Rooney, and has been linked to impotence in men, PRP has no known long-term side effects. Dr Cowpland is currently writing a review article on PRP and hair loss.
Dr Cowpland was also the first to install the unique Hydrafacial system favoured by celebrities including Alex Gerrard, Paris Hilton and Suki Waterhouse. Suitable for all skin types, its patented vortex technology exfoliates dead skin cells, followed by suction which removes black and white heads, and then the skin is bathed in botanical antioxidant ingredients such as horse chestnut seed extract, red algae extract, copper, zinc and magnesium peptides. It introduces powerful antioxidants to counteract the damage of free radicals – caused by pollution, sun and stress – which can damage the skin, accelerating the ageing process. The Hydrafacial has been positively reviewed in Marie Claire, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Sunday Times Magazine Style and red magazines.
The main treatments consist of a six-stage process which helps to detoxify the skin, remove dead skin cells, extract any debris and provide long lasting hydration and essential nutrient support that protects and rebuilds collagen levels. Suitable for all skin types it treats dry skin, congested skin, acne, pigmentation for an instant glow.
Dr Christine A Cowpland BSc Hons, MBChB has had a distinguished international career, working in the UK and Australia as a clinical doctor, conducting medical research and teaching.
She trained under New York-based Dr Blumenfeld, a pioneer of Botox treatment for chronic migraine. She joined the NHS as a clinical fellow of neurology where Botox injections were used to reduce unwanted muscle contraction in stroke patients.
Having witnessed the transformative results of this treatment, she began treating patients cosmetically with Botox and dermal fillers, founding the CMedical Aesthetic Clinic. The importance of beautiful skin soon became apparent to her, and her approach is now a holistic one which uses various products and techniques to get a client's face and skin looking their best for that 'well-rested glow'. Botox can erase or soften lines and fillers can soften shadows. Her philosophy is to help clients to look well – not different.
Treatments include the use of platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) to improve hair quality on the scalp, and for skin also known as the 'Vampire facial'. Dr Cowpland remains a leading researcher in this field.
