Dr Tim Clayton is an experienced clinical dermatologist and has undergone additional training in cosmetic procedures. Dr Clayton has a particular clinical interest in treating acne. When he has successfully cleared his patients acne the most common question he is asked is ” how can you get rid of my scars?”. Dr Clayton would usually advise waiting a few weeks or months after treatment, indeed 6 months if he has used systemic retinoid therapy. Dr Clayton also uses chemical peels and intra dermal fine needling (derma pen FNA) to treat acne scarring. Occasionally skin surgery with punch biopsies can be undertaken. Dr Clayton can also treat keloid and hypertrophic scars.
Dr Clayton and his dermatology specialist nurse colleague Georgina Devlin have developed a cosmetic dermatology clinic providing aesthetic treatments. Georgina is a member of British Dermatology Nursing Group and she has worked alongside Tim in his dermatology clinics at Salford Royal and at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital for the last 5 years.
The treatments currently offered include anti-wrinkle treatments, acne-scarring treatments and chemical peels.
Cosmetic dermatology represents the aspect of diagnosing, treating, and preventing the changes to the skin that are aesthetically not pleasing to the patient. Whether it be aging lines, pitting from acne, or scarring from sun damage. These observed changes in the skin can have a significant effect on a patient’s psychological well being.
Cosmetic dermatology can be defined as procedures and treatments that change the appearance, colour, texture and structure of bodily features, which most would consider otherwise to be within the broad range of “normal” for that person.
Patients with acne scarring and hyper pigmentation can be treated with chemical peels and intra-dermal fine needling techniques. Dr Clayton and his team have recently undertaken additional training in cosmetic procedures and deliver these treatments in the new clinic on King Street.
Anti-wrinkle injections are given only after an in-depth, individual specific consultation. These treatments are usually given to treat forehead lines, crows feet and frown lines. Dr Clayton or his specialist nurse Georgina will usually undertake an in depth analysis and full aesthetic consultation before advising on injectable toxins.
Dr Clayton does not treat patients under the age of 28yrs with anti-wrinkle injections or intradermal fillers of hyaluronic acid.
