Who We Are

We are Iki and Dr Chris, a Brighton-based wife and husband team with over 25 years of experience in healthcare between us.  In our careers as a pharmacist and a doctor, we have developed the key attributes that enable us to provide all of our patients with a medical aesthetics experience that is of the highest quality.

We have both trained as specialists in Medical Aesthetics with the Harley Academy in London; the first training academy to be accredited by the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP).  Having qualified to administer Botulinum toxin and dermal filler, we both embarked on a full Masters Course in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine.  This course is the first Ofqual regulated qualification in injectables, ensuring we are both trained to the highest standards of knowledge and safety.
