Dr Duncan Brennand FRCR MBBS BSc Hons
Aesthetic Physician and Consultant Interventional Radiologist
Duncan qualified as a doctor from St Mary’s Hospital Medical School, London in 1996
After completing surgical training he went onto train as a Radiologist at University College Hospital London and was admitted as a Fellow of The Royal College of Radiologists in 2005
Duncan was appointed as Consultant Interventional Radiologist at University College London Hospital in 2006. Today, he is an internationally- recognised expert in minimally-invasive, image-guided percutaneous interventions.
Duncan’s interest and involvement in aesthetic medicine and surgery developed when he worked as part of the plastic surgery team at The Middlesex Hospital in 2000. As more and more new and exciting non-surgical percutaneous aesthetic procedures have been developed and successfully introduced into clinical practice, it became clear that aesthetic medicine was the perfect fit for Duncan’s expertise, experience and passion.
By learning from leading doctors and pioneering practitioners, Duncan has brought a fresh, radical approach to the ever-evolving area of aesthetic medicine.
Duncan is committed to working with his clients to achieve a balanced and harmonious result in all circumstances from wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation through to his specialist interest in combination therapies for holistic facial rejuvenation, he is particularly expert in the use of Silhouette Soft Thread lifts either alone or together with HA fillers or Ellanse.
Medical Skin Treatments include:
Wrinkle Relaxing Injections – involves the injection of small doses of Botulinum Toxin into specific facial muscles helping to smooth expression lines and wrinkles. Treatment takes a matter of minutes with results typically lasting 3 to 4 months.
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty – The non-surgical or medical rhinoplasty is a technique for remodelling and reshaping the nasal framework with the use of dermal filler injections. This is an excellent, affordable option for people who want to change the shape of their noses but do not want surgery. Results are instant; there is no downtime, no general anaesthetic and no prolonged healing.
Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers are a temporary product lasting between 4 and 12 months (depending on the product used and area injected). They are used to smooth lines and wrinkles, add definition and volume to the lips, enhance cheeks and contour the face.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) injectable Dermal Fillers are perfect for layering in the tear trough and around the eye to give the lower lid a naturally rejuvenated look. This naturally camouflages eye hollows and restores volume to create a smoother, more youthful transition from the eyes to the cheeks. Because dark circles are often the result of shadows thrown on the tear trough by overhanging fat, by lifting and filling the tear trough these shadows are eliminated.
As we age are cheeks loose volume looking sunken and hollow. Cheek fillers restore plumpness and volume to frame and define your features. While also having a tightening effect on your skin
Patients requesting Lip Enhancement come from all age groups. As we get older the lips age with the rest of the face resulting in thinning of the lips, appearance of tiny vertical lines, flattening of the graceful cupid’s bow of the upper lip, together with the upper lip lengthening and hanging over the teeth. Others may have been born with thinner lips, and simply want a more defined cupid’s bow and greater lip volume to balance the other features of their face.
Injectable Lip Enhancement involves the precise placement of Dermal Fillers into parts of the lip and surrounding skin in order to enhance, shape, or add volume to the lips and to reduce surrounding wrinkles.
PDO Thread Lift is the latest and revolutionary treatment for skin tightening and lifting as well as V-shaping the face.
Silhouette Soft is the latest advance in aesthetic treatments aimed at reversing the ageing process. Based on a the tried-and-tested thread lift procedure, Silhouette Soft produces both lifting and rejuvenating results due to its unique design and composition. This non-invasive procedure is used to lift and reposition sagging mid face tissue.
This is an exciting new alternative to traditional, invasive facelift surgery. It is an ideal and effective way to restore youthfulness without all of the possible complications associated with surgery. It is safe, requires very little recovery or downtime and is almost pain-free. The No-Knife Facelift utilizes a combination of Muscle Relaxing Injections commonly known as “Botox” and Dermal Fillers such as Juvederm, Emervel and Restylane. This powerful combination effectively diminishes lines, folds, and wrinkles, and smooths out facial contours. The result is an overall tightening, toning, and softening of your skin. Years of fatigue, ageing, and environmental stresses are erased without a scalpel or significant risks.
There is no need for general anaesthesia and topical numbing cream will reduce or even eliminate discomfort of the injections. More importantly, you are able to control the outcome by looking in a handheld mirror throughout the procedure and provide feedback of treatment progress, thereby ensuring that you are satisfied with your final result.
