Happy New Year from the Claudia McGloin Clinic

It is still January so, we can still say...


We had a really busy 2014 and we are planning an even busier 2015 with lots of new products, treatments and projects in the pipeline.

We would like to thank each and every one of our clients for their custom throughout 2014 and we look forward to treating you again this year and to welcome new clients to the clinic.

If there is a treatment or skin product that we currently don't offer and you would like to see it at the Claudia McGloin Clinic, let us know. We always love to hear your suggestions!

Do I really need to use a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) in WINTER???

This is a question that I get asked a lot and when I say YES you do, I get funny looks and am told that it's wet, windy and cold outside! Yes, it is but you still need to protect your skin in winter the same as you do during spring and summer!

The truth is that even in winter, the suns rays are still coming through the dark clouds and you can still damage your skin by the UVA and UVB rays. Even when you are in the car, the rays are coming through the windscreen. How many of you have Sun Spots on the backs of your hands??? Your hands are also exposed to these rays while you are driving so, you should protect them with an SPF all year round!!!

I strongly recommend using an SPF 50 but definitely nothing less than an SPF 30. We love the Heliocare range of SPF's and they even have one that has a colour in it so, there is no need to apply make up!!! Happy Days!!!

So the bottom line is whether you are having a Medical Aesthetic or Cosmetic procedure, you are skiing or are out in about in winter, don't forget to apply the SPF...

Calling all Brides with Tattoos...

Are you getting married soon but haven't been able to find a dress to suit you because you have a Tattoo??? Do you have your dress but are not sure what to do to cover up your Tattoo???

Fear not help is at hand at the Claudia McGloin Clinic...We have helped a lot of Brides with their Tattoos before their Wedding Day!!! We have a couple of options for you which make it easier for you!!!

We can remove your Tattoo for you by means of Thermal Abrasion. It will take on average of about 5 treatments to remove the Tattoo completely although, we have seen Tattoos being removed with less sessions. It will all depend on each individual Tattoo.

If we don't have enough time for treatments OR you like your Tattoo and want to keep it but just want it covered up for the big day, then we can also offer you a Medical Camouflage Make Up & Concealer and we also have Skin Plasters that can be used to cover the Tattoo on your day...

It's easy peasy just make an appointment to see us and we will do the rest...
