WALKING IN A BEAUTY WONDERLAND
The world of non-surgical clinical beauty procedures is not a place to cut corners. Trust us: it’s better to have an extensively medical trained doctor with a scrupulous eye study your face and suggest the correct options for you, than to cherry-pick ‘it’ treatments from TikTok.
Discreetly tucked away in St James, Ouronyx has taken this philosophy to its five-star conclusion by specialising in treatment ‘journeys’ that focus on harmonising a face, rather than ‘fixing’ a particular feature. In the supremely elegant environs of what looks like a luxury hotel, your consultation involves a psychological and emotional assessment alongside a deep look at your concerns and wishes. Then a 3D-virtual replica of your head is produced, allowing your doctor to hone in on what may be adjusted and demonstrate what this will look like. It also allows you to track your progress; a clever way to prevent patients ever taking that step ‘too far’.
Treatment comes in the form of bespoke injectables (Botox alongside Teoxane dermal fillers and boosters) and Secret RF radiofrequency microneedling (to correct texture issues). The clinic also specialises in AMT micrografting, a new technology that stimulates hair loss and combats thinning. The treatments have zero or minimal downtime and won’t leave you bruised and battered, but a post-procedure zhuzh from an in-house make-up artist is complimentary. Expect to emerge looking well and truly box fresh.
From £950 for a ‘refinement’ combination of Botox and injectable skin boosters; micrografting is £2,850.
