  • Johns Weight Loss Journey with Temple Medical

    Finding the willpower and motivation to follow it through is definitely one of the most challenging aspects of weight loss.

    We all think we know what we have to do, but often it’s finding the willpower that can be the stumbling block…this thing that everyone wants and yet only few of us can find. The question is “once you find the motivation to get started, how can you hold onto that willpower to help you stay on track, and most importantly, to get to your target weight?.”

  • Broad Spectrum Sun Protection Products

    You are conscious that those UV rays are going to age you so you’ve been wearing a sunscreen every day now since your 30s. Added to that there’s SPF in your moisturiser and make up too so why is your skin still showing signs of ageing? Those ever increasing lines and tell tale wrinkles coupled with the nasty brown spots that are forming…. What’s the point in religiously using an SPF if it doesn’t eradicate these problems?

    Sun exposure starts a lot earlier than we think. About 25% of the damage is done before we are 20 years old. Do you ever remember putting on sun cream before you went out to play all day during the school holidays? Not many people do!

  • Brotox – why more men are turning to wrinkle relaxing injections

    Soften your lines but not your edge………..

    Brotox has exploded in popularity over the past decade and essentially is the male version of the very popular wrinkle relaxing injections that are associated with ‘Botox’.

    For a long time there was some stigma attached to these injections but in recent years with a plethora of new skin care treatments and products hitting the market, wrinkle relaxing injections have become far more acceptable and less controversial due to the results being as effective as they are!

  • Skin Consultation

    Following a total hysterectomy which plunged me into an instant early menopause, I have suffered with eczema and very dry skin, in particular around my eyes and on my eyelids.

    My eyelids were dry and scaly and would and times crack and bleed and people often commented on how tired I looked or asked if I had been crying!

    I’d tried numerous over the counter creams and moisturisers which had no effect and my GP prescribed Diprobase and a mild steroid cream, neither of which worked and the Diprobase made my eyes sting and water.

  • Body Contouring Treatments

    Body contouring has become a highly popular aesthetic procedure for patients looking for a non-invasive skin tightening, particularly after weight loss.

    Body contouring treatments make a difference because nature is not always kind and losing weight does not automatically mean you will be left with a great body shape. Sometimes when you lose weight you can be left with saggy skin. The treatments can shape your curves and tighten your skin to make sure that you lose inches in the right places.

  • Acne Treatment

    The most common skincare question searched for online is ‘how to get rid of acne?’

    We weren’t surprised to hear this as statistics show the incidence of adult female acne is on the rise. More than half of women over the age of 35 suffer from some form of acne with 15% having their first serious attack in their 40s.

    A study of 92 private dermatology clinics last year revealed a 200% increase in the number of adults seeking treatment.

  • Workshops Schedule

    Tracy our fitness expert has had a busy week at the clinic.

    Monday’s focus was a session for those that don’t think they have time to exercise.

    Tracy showed how time efficient a full body workout can be all with just one resistance band and one weight. It was a fun workout that hit all the problem areas in just one workout.

  • Scottish Cosmetic Nurse of the Year Nominee

    ‘I am proud and humbled to have been shortlisted for the finals for the Scottish Cosmetic Nurse of the Year Award. There are many excellent nurses in Scotland that deserve this award.

  • Get off your seat!

    Numerous studies link sitting for long periods of time with a number of health concerns, including obesity and metabolic syndrome (a cluster of conditions that includes increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels.

    Too much sitting seems to increase the risk of death from cardiovascular diseases and cancer:

    nearly 50% increased risk of death.
    about 125% increased risk of events associated with cardiovascular disease; such as angina or heart attack.
