Non Surgical Procedures

Many people do not want to have either a local or a general anaesthetic. If you want to look a little younger but don’t want an operation, John offers other procedures, such as Botox or Restylane filler.

These are simple to do and can make a significant difference.

John was one of the first surgeons in Devon to use these techniques and has many years of safe experience with them. Using a variety of LASERS a range of skin problems can be treated.
