COVID 19 – UPDATE MAY 2021
There have been a few reports in the press regarding facial swelling following Covid vaccination, in areas previously treated with dermal fillers. Swelling tends to be mild and to resolve spontaneously without treatment. However, in line with expert opinion, I feel it would be prudent to avoid dermal filler treatment within 3 weeks of Covid vaccination. Those who have been treated with fillers should not ideally subsequently receive a Covid vaccination within 2 weeks. There is not the same perceived risk with Botox® and the Covid vaccination. However, I still feel it prudent to avoid Botox® injections one week either side of Covid vaccination.
We are still able to take your orders for Obagi skincare products and eyelash enhancement.

Latisse/Lumigan Bimatoprost 0.3mg/ml
1 month: £45
2 months: £85
6 months: £170
Plus £5 p+p – includes applicator brushes
Latisse is the brand name for the eyelash enhancing characteristics of bimatoprost 0.3mg/ml, a prostaglandin analogue and is available in the UK under the brand name, Lumigan, or simply the generic drug, bimatoprost 0.3mg/ml.
Bimatoprost 0.3mg/ml is a prescription for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) making eyelashes grow longer, darker and thicker. There are several eyelash enhancement products on the market but the only product containing the active ingredient bimatoprost 0.3mg/ml is FDA approved.
This eye drop, when applied to the roots of the upper lashes daily for 16 weeks, doubles lash fullness and makes lashes longer and darker. Results may well be noted from 3 to 4 weeks of continuous daily use, but it is thought that maximum effects take up to 16 weeks to fully develop. There are anecdotal reports that application directly to the eyebrow results in stimulation of hair growth to this area.
When bimatoprost 0.3mg/ml is discontinued, lashes will slowly return to their previous appearance.
If you have eye problems, you must consult your doctor before using this product.
Common side-effects are itchy or red eyes. Eyelid skin darkening may occur which is likely to be reversible. Lumigan may very rarely cause increased brown pigmentation of the coloured part of the eye which is likely to be permanent. This side-effect may occur in those with mainly brown eyes. Hair may grow on the skin that bimatoprost 0.3mg/ml frequently touches.
Shrinkage of the fat cells in the tissues around the eyes might result in a slightly hollowed look in susceptible clients. This has been reported in clients using these drops in the eye for the treatment of glaucoma. It is not known if this side-effect occurs in those using drops on the eyelid skin for purposes of eyelash enhancement. Conversely, this side-effect can improve the appearance of those with puffiness around the eyes where there is excess periorbital fat. This side-effect is reported to usually reverse within weeks of discontinuing the use of this product.

Modern rejuvenation techniques have empowered us in the fight against the effects of ageing, ensuring that we look our best and feel good about ourselves whilst enjoying our lives to the full.
The St John Clinic was founded in 1995 by Dr. Helen St. John MBChB MRCOG to provide facial rejuvenation using the latest proven techniques with muscle relaxing injections, dermal fillers and Obagi skincare as well as the treatment of hyperhidrosis, all provided with sound medical practice.
Whilst undergoing rejuvenation treatment at The St John Clinic you can be confident that you are in the safe hands of a fully qualified doctor as Dr St John carries out all treatments herself. Rejuvenation is carried out without surgery.
Dr St John MBChB MRCOG has worked as a doctor for 26 years. Much of her postgraduate training has been in the surgical specialty of Obstetrics and Gynaecology culminating in membership to the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (MRCOG).
Twenty years ago she saw the potential of non surgical treatments to rejuvenate the face. Her practice, the St John Clinic has expanded with the addition of a highly successful treatment for excessive underarm perspiration (hyperhidrosis)
