Cosmetic surgery offers the choice to change, restore or enhance the appearance of your body through highly refined surgical and medical techniques. Skin and underlying tissue are reconstructed to improve and correct a structural defect or to remove a scar, birthmark, or normal evidence of ageing.

CAER offers Cosmetic Surgery for a wide range of procedures.

Margaret Strick has particular skills in the following areas of Cosmetic Surgery:

Caer Aesthetics

Non-surgical facial rejuvenation

facial rejuvenation

Lines and wrinkles develop around the face over time and cause us to look older than we feel. CAER Aesthetics provides the expert medical care to smooth lines and refresh tired skin without surgery.

There is an art to the effective use of injectables. Our experienced Aesthetic doctors are trusted to achieve completely natural results. The effect is radiance – you look refreshed, not obviously injected.

All our procedures can be carried out under local anaesthetic block and can be, consequently, pain free

  • Wrinkle relaxing injectionstreatment

    Wrinkle relaxing injections are an approved and effective method of safely and temporarily smoothing frowns and furrows to restore a more refreshed, relaxed appearance.

    Wrinkle relaxing injectionsinjections can also be used to effectively treat hyperhydrosis, excessive sweating which affects hands, underarms forehead and feet.

  • Dermal Fillers

    Dermal fillers are natural injectable substances which are used to smooth wrinkles and scars, and enhance lips. The effect is instant.

    Using small amounts of filler, facial furrows are minimised, texture is improved and, as a result, your face has a softer, more youthful appearance.

  • Skin Peels

    Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) have been used for thousands of years to make rejuvenating skin products.

    Used in peels, AHAs exfoliate the skins cells reducing unevenness and fine wrinkles and improving skin moisture and tone. The result is refreshed and younger-looking skin.

  • Fractora

    Fractora is the most advanced method available of resurfacing the skin; stimulating the dermis to produce collagen and elastin and resulting in improvements to skin tone, texture and radiance.

    Caer Aesthetics brings you the first treatment of its kind in Scotland. Fractora and new Fractora Firm target the broadest range of symptoms of ageing skin.

Reconstructive

Reconstructive Plastic Surgery
